Isla - Reserved

Isla is just 15 months old and has a very soft and calm temperament. She is house trained and is living with a couple with other dogs.

Isla has such a fantastic karma; she could easily become a therapy dog, but please read on.

Isla loves to meet other dogs (& gently plays with the puppies) people & children. She will roll over for a tummy tickle at every opportunity. She is very good on a lead, travels well in the car and is respectful of other dogs.

FOOD

Isla has a food intolerance to kibble and dried foods, so will need to be on a diet of raw food and vegetables. If you aren't prepared to feed her raw, please DO NOT apply. Her intolerance is to all dried foods so there is NO question of her changing diet, regardless of brand or composition.

ADOPTER

Isla best suits a home with another dog and ideally an experienced dog owner to continue her training.

If you are interested in adopting, then please fill out our Adoption Application.

(The Adoption Application is not a commitment to adopt but the basis of an enquiry.)

PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU FULFILL THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA

LOCATION - we do not have a limit on distance, however preference will be given to homes that are closer to our base in Fleet, GU52.

FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN UNDER 10  - the shelters in Portugal remain in lockdown and this prevents people from visiting. Until children are able to meet the puppies and our fosterers assess their reactions, we will not be adopting to families with children under the age of 10 until things return to normal.

As we have so many applying, regrettably we are unable to respond to your application if you do not fulfil the above criteria.
