Maud (Safe Rescue, fostered Norfolk)

Luckily, Maud – or Moody Maud as she’s affectionately known – came into the care of Safe Rescue after living all her previous life chained outside in Romania. She’s now enjoying life in foster care in Norwich, Norfolk, until her loving, forever home comes along.

Safe Rescue have a policy that all dogs adopted from Safe Rescue must wear a slip lead on walks for the duration of their lives. Please only enquire about Safe Rescue dogs if you are happy to always use a slip lead – extendable leads are not acceptable to Safe Rescue.

Maud is a 10 – 11 year old Dachshund Cross. Despite her grumpy old lady characteristics, this sweet looking girl just wants a warm, comfortable bed and some human company for her twilight years. Predictably moody, Maud is kind of entitled to be after the horrible first ten years of her life.

Maud’s vision is fading and she’s a bit rickety on her legs but her gutsy nature remains intact. She is an older lady who knows her own mind and she makes it very clear she doesn’t want other dogs on her patch. Nor does she want too much fuss before she will tell you very clearly that’s enough, thank you.

Maud enjoys her walks but can’t do more than a potter round the block before her legs tire. She gets on okay with cats but cannot live with children of any age.

Maud is not for the faint-hearted and needs to be muzzled when groomed. Her movements are slow enough to avoid contact, but she will snap and it will make you jump! She is vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.
