Hello, my name is Dana, and I am 6 years old. I was rescued from Spain where I had such a bad start in life, and was so happy when my rescuers brought me to England. I was so contented, and enjoying the best life I had ever known, then my world was suddenly turned upside down, and I had to leave the family I loved as much as they loved me. The Landlord decided he didn’t want dogs living in his property, and sadly I had to go. I didn’t understand as I had done nothing wrong!
So here I am at Holly Hedge, waiting for that special someone to get me through my darkest days of loneliness and despair. Don’t get me wrong, my carers are so kind to me, and I have made a best friend, a Holly Hedge volunteer who tells me I am his favourite. I so look forward to him taking me out and about and making me feel happy again, we have such fun – I just love going out in the car to lots of nice places and saying “hello” to other dogs on our travels. My tail doesn’t stop wagging and my eyes light up with sheer joy. But then it’s time for me to go back to my kennel, only to dream of being loved and wanted once more in my very own home.
I will need a little patience and understanding to feel settled and secure, but I will be the most faithful and loving companion you could wish for given the chance. So I beg you, don’t be put off if I seem a little nervous, please take a chance on me, and take the time to get to know me as I do find first meetings a little scary – I promise you won’t regret it.
