Current Status: Available
Millie's Story: Millie was found abandoned and unclaimed within a Welsh council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving her life. Millie is now neutered, chipped, and vaccinations are in progress. Millie is in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting her new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
Millie's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information: "Millie is microchipped but no owner came forward, picked up as a stray." Kirsty 4Paws

Millie is both excited and nervous about getting attention from people and walks. Her nervousness manifests itself as jumping up and lead grabbing if she is unsure of what is happening or what is expected of her. We set out for our walk and Millie soon focussed on her walk and sniffing and walked nicely on the lead. The first people we passed resulted in lead grabbing but she quickly moved on again. She then passed 2 other people perfectly calmly. Again first dog we passed caused some concern and a lead grab but again she soon stopped and then we passed a couple more dogs and she was as good as gold. Millie needs confidence from the other end of the lead and the longer we walked today, the more Millie relaxed and was able to enjoy her walk. Millie then surprised me when I sat down and gave her some gentle strokes which she loved and she rolled over for belly rubs. She was being so good, Louise and I took the opportunity to take her photos. Other than the odd moment of grabbing the leads she was patient and well behaved for her photos. Good girl Millie.
Millie is a wonderful, friendly, fun girl who just needs lots of love and some gentle guidance to calm her energy and build her confidence.

Millie is a little sweetheart. No grabbing the leads or jumping up as we left the kennel block - she was way to focused on my squeezy cheese. I had a minute or two of excited jumps and lead play but she soon settled. She walks beautifully, loves to be told what a good girl she is but especially likes it if you bend down and give her a cuddle. Loved the stream and had a good paddle - her tail was wagging as she had a dig in the muddy water. Millie is a lovely girl who so appreciates a few kind words and a little reassurance. Xx.
Beautiful, wet faced Millie xx
