About me

We are looking for a foster home for the beautiful, housetrained and very well behaved Sophia while she undergoes treatment for a low grade cancer. Presently, she is recovering from her 2nd major surgery and is expected to have a 3rd major op in 4-6weeks when the most recent surgery site is fully healed.


Home requirements

The ideal home will have someone there most of the day while she recovers from her next op and preferably not have another dog or any children so she can be kept very quiet and calm for this respite period. All vet runs will be conducted by ourselves and so for that reason we are looking for a foster home in the Rugby/Warwick/Leamington area. We will pay for everything, provide all equipment food etc. All you need is to give love and support. Of course, you may totally fall in love with her, as we all have done, and when she is fully recovered and has a good prognosis for a long and happy life, you may wish to adopt and we will of course consider this. Sophia is a very gentle and loving dog. She’s had a bad past which was evident from the massive tumour the size if a football that hung between her back legs, her poor skin, dull coat and “all hope lost” eyes when she 1st came to us. The transformation we have seen is incredible. She is the best patient and has never been depressed about her situation. If you feel you meet the criteria we feel is absolutely necessary to care for a dog receiving more cancer treatment, please complete our online adoption form.

Fostering is one of the best ways you can help a rescue. It’s also one of the most difficult when things don’t go to plan. Please consider this before applying. Thank you x
