Dolly Pawton is a medium to large crossbreed aged around eight years old.

Dolly Pawton was found on the streets of Romania during a safe rescue trip. She had a litter of puppies with her and our volunteer had to leave them that day due to not having anywhere to put them. The next day she returned to get them but sadly only one pup was left and the others have never been seen again.

Dolly’s puppy will join us shortly but for now, Dolly is here looking for a much-deserved forever home. She is a friendly and affectionate girl with a calm and placid nature.

You can tell that she’s had a hard life and the fact that she was still producing puppies at her age means she really really needs a pampered and calm retirement home now. She deserves the very best for her twilight years

Dolly can live or without other dogs and would be fine with respectful children aged eight plus.

When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a slip lead. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and will not trust you, and you will not know which situations might upset your dog.

If your dog panics, then a slip lead is the only way to prevent your dog from escaping (many dogs can escape from a collar and/or harness). It will take AT LEAST 3-6 months for your dog to settle in and for you to know your dog fully (longer for nervous dogs). The slip lead must ALWAYS be used during this settling-in period.

Even after your dog is settled, it is safest to use the slip lead in situations where your dog may become scared (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the vet), and in situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a backup safety measure.

The slip lead is a safety device and must NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the lead to apply pressure to the dog’s neck is damaging. If your dog pulls on the lead, then we can advise you on training methods that avoid harm.

Once your dog is settled, you may want to consider using a harness (together with the slip lead) if your dog is comfortable with being handled when it is fitted. Most harnesses are not escape-proof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer.

Retractable/extendable leads must never be used on our dogs.

Adopted dogs must be collected from the rescue and transported straight home in a crate.

Fences and gates must be 5ft min & secure. Dolly Pawton fostered Norwich Norfolk.
