Current Status: Homed


Karla needs This little girl feels very threatened by dogs and prefers to be exercised in low dog density and with a supportive handler on lead. Karla needs an aware family to ensure front door / back gate security and terrier proof fencing.
NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Karla was found stray and was unclaimed despite trying to contact her family via her chip details. We came forwards to save Karla's life. Karla is now spayed and fully vaccinated. Karla is currently in boarding kennels in Gatwick area.

About Karla: Karla is easy to handle and affectionate with her humans. Just a year old but doesn't like other dogs which almost has a comical air about it. She looks at them and shows her teeth as though she is smiling! So she messages them not coming forwards but making it clear she isn't wanting to fraternise then happy to trot on. Easy to manage and sensitive to her handler and is very engaging. You really feel Karla has not been prepared for the outside world and now needs to slowly build her confidence.

Pretty red 2 year old Jack Russell body shape with a touch of Staffie, softening her looks and bringing in bag full of love. Karla doesn't have an edge to her and in fact is intent on offering her belly for rubs. Lost in kennels she waits for love!

Took little Karla out today for a walk, she is a darling. She was having a chat with the other terriers as we left, and silly me forgot the extender lead so I decided to have a little run with her, she was great no pulling just enjoying her play time :smiley-chores002.gif:

We met the oh so friendly Karla this morning - when I entered her kennel her tail didn't stop wagging, very easy to harness and , we went for a nice long walk through the woods where being a terrier her nose didn't leave the ground there were so many interesting smells around, doesn't pull at all on the lead and after a while we put her on an extendable lead , she's very responsive when you call her (especially when you have a treat :) ) - we even managed to get a photo or two

What lovely deep eyes she has

time for a sloppy kiss

balancing act - guess there must be a treat involved

tunny tickle time

Walked the lovely Karla today. She was so gentle in the kennel waiting to be harnessed. Once outside despite the heavy rain she was ready to go! We were walking with Cora and Twix who wasn't so keen on the idea of having a walk in this weather, (Twix not Cora) ;) I think the extending lead would be better, Karla wanted to run everywhere and investigate into every bush - a real bundle of fun! Just adorable :smiley-gen132.gif:

I met Karla for the 1st time today & we had a lovely walk together. She was obviously happy to be out & about & loved sniffing anything & everything! I'm no David Bailey & trying to capture Karla's cuteness on my phone is tricking to say the least so the only semi decent picture I managed to get was when Karla gave me a cuddle (I think she did it to see higher up & make sure she wasn't missing anything!).

We passed 2 littl'uns who were giving us their opinion of having the cheek to walk past their garden :barking_dog-116.gif: :barking_dog-116.gif: Karla was watching them but carried on walking past them with very little encouragement from me. She is very light on the lead & very rarely went to the full length of the lead that I use, preferring to stay close & sniff as much as possible. Such a beautiful girl with the most stunning face & eyes. I think that until you see her with your own eyes you cant appreciate how stunning she is :biggrin.gif:

How sweet is Karla!? She's a wonderful mix of terrier and staffie! Karla is a little wary of other dogs on the walks, but we can walk her past dogs without trouble. She's quite small, but has a big personality. She's full of beans on her walks and loves taking in all the sights and smells. She would adore having a run around with a ball though! Karla has lots of love to give and is very friendly with her humans.

Well I met little Karla today. She is a JRT/Staffie with her little personality of her own. She likes to take the harness from you and run up the run with it before thinking about letting you put it on!! She got over excited and I took her out on the lead and we had a calming down period before putting her harness on on the bench. then she was ready for the excitement of new surroundings in Guildford. She is a delight to walk, quite strong but has the JRT nature and everything that moved in the undergrowth had to be investigated. She spied a rabbit and that was it, she was trying to drag me into the undergrowth too to get the rabbit. I laughed a lot on this walk with this little one today. She is a beauty and will melt quite a few hearts. She just wants to be out. Loves people!! Decided the puddles were quite fun too. Lovely walk. :D :smiley-gen132.gif:

Karla is becoming a firm favourite of mine. She is lively, happy and very cheeky. She is always on the go and guaranteed to make you smile and laugh. She is so adorable, I'm sure she will be snapped up very soon. She doesn't like other dogs and we did come across an off lead dog with no owner to be seen, so she did her menacing smile at them and I ended up carrying her a little way as the dog was following us. She found this very amusing. By the time the dog's owner had come along and finally got them on a lead, which they had managed to tangle up...Karla was licking my face asking to be put down, almost as though she knew it was now ok to go back on the floor. She loves it if you crouch down as well, she tries to jump up onto your lap or balance on your knee. We had a lovely walk to the park. I have a real soft spot for her.

Met the lively little Karla today. She loves snuffling in bushes and sticking her head into holes. :smiley-gen132.gif:

Rescue animals are not damaged they have just experienced more in life. If they were human we would call them wise.
