Tia's progress through our Rescue below
Original Referral information : We work with our dogs & often reveal a different picture & positive skills as they build trust. 05.06.18: Hi Lynne, This is TIA - Came to us because owner was being evicted.
Registered as EBT cross. The housing officers wanted to pts. She isn't spayed so we are having her done Thursday 7th Jume. I may be able to get her to you Friday or Saturday if you can squeeze her in. She is so nervous. It’s complete fear. We do think she will come round but please read below.

Tia was given her 2nd vaccination today though it was required to muzzle her due to her unpredictable temperament.

The staff have reported that she does not appear too interested in other dogs so far and does not appear to want to interact with them however this is a little difficult to assess fully with her.

Tia is still very nervous towards most of our staff members. There are 2 staff that she is very good with however most other staff she is less enthusiastic and has been witnessed to get a little reactive towards.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks Lynne as always she deserves a chance. Michelle x ADM

As sweet little Tia was returning from her walk with Debbie yesterday morning, I had the chance to say hello and take some photos. Tia is making friends, her favourite people being the kennel girls but she is gaining an increasing fan club among the walkers too.

Tia is wary of new people but once befriended she shows what a sweet, quiet loving girl she is. Tia was happy for me to join her in her kennel this morning and put her harness on. Once out, she walks so nicely with a loose lead. I am getting more and more fond of this wonderful girl. love4.gif

Lovely Tia has come to stay for the weekend :D

I hadn’t met her before I popped into her kennel and she was happy to come say hi and let me harness her - she travelled really well on the way home, loved looking out the window watching the world go by !

Home and she did some exploring, all really nice and relaxed, I was very impressed with sweet Tia love4.gif

Tia was very impressed when I started to make her dinner !!!

Ate it all up and didn’t worry about me around her :D

Then it was time for some cuddles as we got to know each other better ...

Tia loves attention and if I stopped tickling her tum she would gently paw me for some more, very very sweet thumbs.gif

Tia then tried out her own armchair and was soon snoring zzz zzzzz zzzzzz, no better sound to come from your foster dog love4.gif

Well I thought I was bringing home a timid slightly unsure girl to relax slowly as the weekend unfolded...

How wrong was I, Tia unpacked her kennel bag in a nanosecond the moment she entered my house !!! and we’ve had a fabulous weekend of Tia showing me just how very very loving she is and how she loves her life to revolve around tummy tickles and cuddles - what a wonderful girl Tia is love4.gif
22387A71-A737-4C14-B808-66E9292274DC.jpeg

Tia hasn’t put a paw wrong, totally housetrained, 120% !!! Even lets me have a lie in, well she seems to love them too so who needs to go outside for an early morning wee !!! Not Tia !

She’s a tall girl so can counter surf given the chance so a reminder to me to keep things out of reach (my recent fosters have been shorter !!!) - she has a fabulous appetite and eats up her breakfast and dinner and yesterday to build her up she had lunch aswell ! She’s a gentle eater which fits her personality ! But doesn’t leave a morsel, she’s very thorough!!!
The only thing she has taken from my worktop is a 2nd dentastix that I’d left out for her for later - well it’s clearly me who’s the silly one there !!!
No begging when I’ve been eating - the look sometimes but that might be because of the chicken bits I was giving her !!!

Tia was slightly nervous of new and sudden noises, even the air from the fan spooked her but over the course of the day and through to today she’s taking them all in her stride and not at all jumpy. Dogs barking in the distant gardens don’t concern her, lifts an ear but that’s all.

We went for an evening walk last night out of the heat of the day - too hot for me if not too hot for her during the day !!! Walked well on the lead, a bit cross-crossy but she didn’t know the area after all - interested to listen to all the families in their gardens and walked past a lovely lab walking towards us on their lead very well, no reaction at all, interested but happy to walk on by with me as was the lab with her human !

On the first night I went upstairs, I’d not left the curtains drawn so it was hot in my bedroom but I put the fan on. Tia was apprehensive to join me upstairs (maybe not previously allowed ?) but some treats got her up there and onto my bed. She just wanted cuddles and tickles bless her, she really gets in close to you, but didn’t want to settle - I opened the bedroom door as it was very warm and she took herself downstairs. I got changed into my pj’s and went downstairs to check on her, bless she didn’t immediately recognise me and did bark a little. Reassurance with my voice and she soon joined me in the lounge where I’d gone to sit and more cuddles required !
I decided to let her have the run of the rooms to choose where she wanted to sleep - Maybe too much choice too soon as she barked as I went upstairs - so downstairs to the lounge it was, me settled on the sofa and her in her chair and a good night was had by all !!! It was so much cooler downstairs I think I slept better there !
I say all this as night no.2 was nothing like this ! I’d left my curtains closed and the fan on in my bedroom so it was much cooler last night. I let Tia decide where she wanted to sleep again and she didn’t hesitate to follow me upstairs, pop on the bed, snuggle up and then stretch out with her face in front of the fan and settle for sleep - such a sweetheart love4.gif
I heard her tail wagging, thud thud thud on the bed when she saw me wake this morning !!! and soon had a lovely greeting and kiss from this beautiful baby xxx

Right too many words time for the pics to do the talking ...

Her playful side has come out and there’s no mistaking the whippet side of her when she charges round the garden and bounds when I throw the ball for her :D
She’s enjoyed some rolling too :D and then a rest after the sudden exertion of energy in the chase !
