We'll come straight to the point: You can eliminate one or more animal's pain and suffering by a simple and modest donation.

Remember we have no paid staff, not even the boss gets paid or me! Expenses are hardly ever calmed,which are fuel cost only.

Isla is a 7 year old female black and tan short coat German Shepherd who is spayed, microchipped and booster is due February 2020.

When assessor arrived Isla was in the garden but when let into the house she went straight to assessor and gave her lots of cuddles and kisses. Usually if she hears anyone come to the home she will bark but quieten down when told. She can be boisterous, mouthy and jump up sometimes with visitors. She does take treats nicely.

Over the last 2 years Isla has had a lot of turmoil in her life with a new baby in the home and the death of her human dad meaning moving homes and being separated from the dog she previously lived with. Isla is well cared for and loved but unfortunately is not getting the exercise that she needs.

When out on the walk with assessor Isla did walk to heel all the way. She does carry a tug toy whilst out and that keeps her focused. She is never off lead but on long lead she does have good recall. Isla is not good with other dogs despite being well socialised as a puppy and going on social walks with other dogs. Now she is dog aggressive and has attacked the terrier in the home and out on walks will lunge and bark at other dogs. Owner was working on her issues with other dogs but then she was attacked a couple of times by a staffie. She does not like collies or westies. She is now nervous around other dogs but if they are calm and quiet she becomes agitated but will stay quiet. If the other dog barks or is full on she will bark and lunge at them.

Isla would be better homed with older children as she can be boisterous and mouthy and jump up. There was an occasion when she nipped a child who was crawling but this was they day before the funeral of her human dad and there was a lot of stress in the household. She is nervous around small children. She is not good with cats.

She does not like loud noises and where she is currently living there is low flying aircraft which is causing her to be frightened and stressed.

Left on her own Isla is fine and at present is left for around 4 - 5 hours. Currently she is fed Burns Sensitive food as she can get an upset tummy. She has a cyst on the top of her tail which bursts on occasions but vets is not concerned with it.

Isla is fully house trained and crate trained and went to puppy classes and agility classes a few years ago. She does travel well in the car.

Whoever takes on Isla will have found a little diamond that just needs a little polish to help her sparkle again.

Currently in Preston.
