Dogs Trust Evesham appeal for home for loving mum

Dogs Trust Evesham is hoping to find a loving new home for a doggie mum after watching her seven healthy pups head off to their forever homes.

Two-year-old Lurcher Rosie arrived at the Wickhamford centre in May after being found as a heavily pregnant stray and was placed in temporary foster care through the charity’s Home From Home scheme.

Dedicated foster carers looked after her seven pups – four boys and three girls – until eight weeks old, helping to socialise them and prepare them for their forever homes.

After being the perfect mum to her litter, Rosie then had to say a fond farewell as one by one they left with their new owners.

Despite her pups now being settled in their new homes, staff at the rehoming centre say that Rosie hasn’t had a single family ask about her since she was put up for rehoming earlier this month.

Sarah Galvin, Home From Home Co-ordinator at Dogs Trust Evesham, said: “Rosie did an amazing job as a mum. It was a large litter and of course she’d been through a huge change to her life just days before giving birth, so we are all so proud of how she coped.

“She is a wonderful dog with lots of love to give who’d make a perfect pet. She can be a little nervous of new people and situations and doesn’t like to be left alone so would need a family who are around for the majority of the day. She is living with another dog in her foster home, so could live with another dog providing they mix well during initial introductions. We know all her pups are now happy in their new homes, and that’s all we want for her too. She really deserves it.

Rosie enjoys zooming around the garden followed by an afternoon snooze and could live with children over the age of eight who can give her time to herself should she need it.
