TamTam (Paws Crossed Survivors Egypt, kennelled West Dorset)

18/1/20 – TamTam still needs a home

TamTam is a 2-3 year old, mixed breed girl who has been rescued from a terrible life in Egypt. She is being rehomed by Paws Crossed Survivors Egypt and is at the BSAS Canine Behaviour Rehabilitation Centre in Bridport, Dorset. TamTam needs to find a special forever home, close to Bridport, so that BSAS can help her make the transition to home life, to include home support and assistance with vet visits.

TamTam needs a secluded home and garden where she can feel safe to relax and play. She feels nervous around men and strangers, so needs a female owner and a peaceful space to retreat to when visitors are present. She needs someone to be at home most of the time while she’s settling in as she might bark at first when she is left alone.

Tamtam is a loving and playful girl, a tri-paw, having lost the lower part of her left front leg in a brutal act of cruelty on the streets of Cairo. She arrived in the UK in June 2019. Due to her traumatic past she has special requirements, of which BSAS have provided details, see below.

TamTam’s ideal home will be somewhere with a good-sized lawned garden where she can play and bounce about in her paddling pool. Tam is not, and may not ever be, a dog you can just pop a lead on and go for a walk. The world has been very cruel to her and to go out of her safe zone is too much and she will literally just lie down and try and hide herself if she is scared.

She would love a family, ideally children over 12 as she does jump up quite energetically. She has been mixing close to other dogs and feeling a lot more secure now with them to the point that she MAY be able to live with another disabled, physically-affected dog with very careful slow intros – nothing too big, about the same size as her.

Tam needs to be a home dog, no venturing out – the house and garden are all she needs. She’s much braver with new people now but will need to feel safe and go to new people when she feels safe. She is not a bite risk at all. She needs a very special sofa with someone who will accept her for how she is. She is a lovable, cuddly and bouncy girl and she is enjoying life now and trusting more each day.” – Joy Keys.

TamTam has recently been checked by a vet and there are no issues with her stump and no further surgery or treatment is required. She is not neutered.
