Joy is approx 2 years old (could be younger) and we believe could have a bit of Collie in there Razz she was found in a Kabul dump scavenging for food as a puppy, as you are probably aware, many Muslim countries have very little regard for dogs and treat them like vermin, however, Joy was lucky and picked up by someone who did care and taken to the only rescue in the whole of Afghanistan where NOWZAD dogs heard of her plight. She was at the rescue for a year, and it was decided that as we had raised enough money to bring Tangye home we would help another dog with the rest of the money, so NOWZAD arranged for Joy to come to the UK 4 weeks ago.

Most NOWZAD dogs have homes lined up prior to quarantine, as the majority of dogs have been adopted in Afghanistan by Contractors or armed forces personnel, but as Joy was simply a stray she has no one.

Joy is currently in Surrey in Quarantine kennels and has 5 months left, she is now fully vaccinated, and if not spayed (still waiting to find out) will be prior to rehoming.

Due to the fact that she spent a year in kennels prior to coming to the UK, she is suffering from Fear aggression, but this manifests as a snap warning, running to the back of the kennels cowering and wetting herself, however, she does come around and bonds very quickly, the kennels staff said it took roughly 3 days before she allowed them to stroke her, now she goes to them for cuddles and affection.

I have a wonderful man going in to Temperament asses her over the next few days, he has tons of experience so he is going to give me a much better report.

Joy will need to go to a home that has experience with dogs that are nervous as she will need careful socialisation in the outside world, she is OK with other dogs as she lived with them in the Afghanistan Kennels,she will not be rehomed to people who have children or visiting young children, ideally someone in Surrey or surrounds so they can start to build a bond with her.

Rescue back up is kindly provided by Romanian Animal Aid, there will be a £150 adoption fee payable.

Please email me npomroy122@googlemail.com if you are interested

Please expect to be homechecked thoroughly, you will also be expected to visit Joy in quarantine to build up trust and a bond. Smile

I hope someone can give Joy a home, how long will it take you to find out when she will be spayed (if this is not already carried out)

If she isn't spayed, then she will likely come in season whilst in kennels Smile

Little update from a lady who went to visit her today

Alan and I had to go to Woking today anyway so we decided we would pop in and see Joy, whay a fabulous little girl she is too...very attached to Vickie, who gave us treats before she left. But even before we were left with her she appoached my husband out of choice first!!!! I am not surprised however as one of my friends dogs never barks at him- despite barking at EVERYONE else!

We went to see her meaning only to stop for a short while but eventually left about 45 mintes later. She did spend someo fthe time away in her bed when Vickie wasnt in with us...not sure if the experience was a bit overwhelming. She chewed up her bed and her chair, also the rag toys she had been given,,,so has shredded newspaper for beddding- we tried for a photo...but obviously she didnt stay still long enough for us to get one...but as soon as we can I will post some.
Alan was very taken with her.... just hope we can be helpful.

Well what can i say ...Joy really is a 'joy'! Vicky has done a fantastic job so far helping her get over her nervousness and when i met her, after ignoring her for a while (during which time she kept trying to lick my hands) she relaxed and came to me when i called for a lovely bit of fuss. She has a lovely temperament, very affectionate and VERY clever. Now she is coming out of her shell she is showing that she is quite dominant, so she would need to go to a home where she is treated like a 'Dog' not a 'baby' .. otherwise i think she would soon rule the roost and perhaps display leadership in a way the new owners would perceive as behavioural problems. I think she would be more suited to an active home with older sensible children who could teach her to play, she picks thing up very quickly so perhaps after a period of 'settling in' and getting to know and trust her new family she might enjoy agility or other activities.

In the right environment, with the right family and the right guidance she is going to make a wonderful addition to a very lucky owner.

I also met a couple of the other nowzad dogs whilst i was there and demonstrated to Vicky how to help one in particular relax and stop 'jumping up'. A couple of the techniques i showed her can be applied to dogs with different 'issues' in the kennel environment and I have told her I am happy to help if ever she needs it. I have also spoken to another couple of Dog Listeners who would also be prepared to donate thier time to help these dogs.
