Raven (Chilterns Dog Rescue Society, Herts)

19/5/19 – Raven has had lots of lovely home offers and CDRS don’t want to disappoint too many people, so can’t accept any more applications for this lovely girl. Please consider another gorgeous staffy type!

Raven is a small black Staffy girl, aged about 8 years, who is at Chilterns Dog Rescue Society in Tring, Hertfordshire.

Raven on arrival at CDRS

Poor Raven sadly arrived at CDRS in a very sorry state. She had been living in the same home since a puppy, but, while she was much loved, her owners were completely unable to meet her medical needs, and what had started as a simple skin infection had, over the years, developed into chronic dermatitis. Poor Raven had lost nearly all the hair on her body, and her skin was sore and thickened as a result of secondary bacterial and fungal skin infections.

But a month later, Raven is transformed, bless her! Glossy black hair is growing back, and her skin is so much softer and healthier. While there is still a way to go, Raven is now ready to start looking for a forever home with someone who will appreciate what a wonderful dog she is.

Affectionate, gentle and loveable, Raven’s nature has not been impacted by her past neglect. She loves people and, while you shouldn’t have a favourites, she is ‘number 1’ with both staff and dog walkers at CDRS.

After her past experiences, Raven would love a quiet home where she will have regular exercise. She is good with other dogs and has lived with small children, but now she deserves a home where she will not have to worry about fitting into a busy family routine. She doesn’t want to live with cats.

Staff at CDRS appreciate that there are many staffies looking for homes, but lovely Raven really is a star and will make a fantastic addition to a household that can meet her ongoing needs.

Raven’s condition is being monitored weekly and continues to improve dramatically. CDRS recommend that her new owners continue with the fish/rice diet she is enjoying there, bath her regularly with the prescribed shampoo, and administer ear drops as required. Raven is spayed.

Could you offer this very special little girl a very happy future?
