Holly (Chilterns Dog Rescue Society, Hertfordshire)

Holly is a very pretty girl, thought to be around 8 or 9 years of age, who is at Chilterns Dog Rescue Society in Tring, Hertfordshire. She’s a fairly small girl, weighing just over 8kg.

Poor Holly has had little in the way of love or home comforts during her life, but now that she has found her way to CDRS, she is hoping her luck is improving. She is proving to be a quiet, gentle girl who is ready to put her trust in the new people she is meeting.

She cannot manage long walks, but Holly really looks forward to the two shorter spells of exercise she is having each day. She walks calmly on the lead without pulling. The rest of the day, she is more than happy to cosy-up on a comfortable dog bed in CDRS’s office and watch the world go by.

Holly is sociable with other dogs but has no experience of living with children or cats. A quiet home with a secure garden to explore and someone to take her for short walks and then keep her company would be ideal.

Holly was very poorly when she arrived at CDRS. A series of scans and tests have confirmed that a valve in her heart is not working efficiently, resulting in a grade 4 heart murmur. Medication has proved very successful – she is no longer breathless and her heart rate is now steady. She will need to take medication for life – she has her tablets one hour before food in the morning and afternoon. Holly’s condition cannot be fixed, but with careful management she can enjoy a good quality of life. Holly is neutered.

Holly richly deserves a happy retirement and will make a loyal friend to someone who understands her health issues and will give her the very best care. Could Holly find happiness with you?
