Martha and her puppy, Merlin, were abandoned outside a groomers in Cyprus by someone who no longer wanted the responsibility of caring for them. Sadly this is commonplace in Cyprus and dogs are often abandoned. Despite this, both dogs have the most wonderful personalities and are more than ready to find homes of their own. Martha is a great dog with a lovely personality and since she has been in our care she has proved to be such an intelligent, loyal and loving dog.
Martha is so bored behind the bars of the kennel and as she is an active dog who loves to run and explore you can imagine the frustration of being locked away for almost the whole day every day. She is a Labrador crossbreed but smaller than a typical Lab and perhaps has some Hound or Pointer within her mix. Martha adores human companionship and is also well socialised with other dogs. She would be best suited to an active lifestyle in a semi-rural environment.
The kennel complex in which Martha is currently living is a highly stressful environment, but once in a home where Martha can experience patience, love and loyalty we think she will thrive. Martha will benefit from some training as she's very smart and keen to please. Training will also improve the bond between dog and owner, which is important to help them settle in and learn their boundaries. Martha has a lot of love and affection to love and would love to have a home of her own. She would make a fantastic companion and we’d love to see her find her new beginning! Please note Martha’s photos where she has a cone on are from just after her spaying op.
