WE NEED A VERY SPECIAL FOSTER SPACE FOR RAFFI
The first pic below is how Raffi started his foster placement with Claire, behind or under his plastic bed.... but you can see how far he has come.
Raffi needs to start a new phase in his rehab. He needs a quieter home with a big garden... this is what foster mum says:
"Raffi has made terrific progress in 2 months from the terrified dog that hid under his plastic bed if anyone went near him to now being able to sit on the sofa next to and be petted by a person he has learnt to trust. Raffi still resists the lead and going far from the house and can become anxious when there is a change to the usual routine or different people in the house so is currently being assessed by Carolyn our behaviour expert. Raffi needs a quiet home which he will happily share with another steady dog. He needs a special owner who will continue to help him to become the happy dog he deserves to be after what must have been an horrendous start to his first three years of life."
Raffi may just be what he is, and always be a dog that is only comfortable in his bubble, we don't know. He is a work in progress and there is no quick fix.....ALSO.... and against all our rules and regs, Raffi is still entire... this will be addressed as and when we feel he can cope with a vet visit.. and only then.
So we are looking for a bigger, quieter home, with someone who is as patient as his foster mum is with him... all his costs are covered by the rescue..
Can you help please?
