Hope - Staffie x Whippet *SPECIAL APPEAL* LOOKING FOR A HOME!


Hope has Pulmonary Stenosis.
She needs a quiet home with no dogs or children


DOB - Feb - 2012
Hope has a condition called Pulmonary Stenosis.
Although she still has a heart problem, a small miracle has happened!
What was supposed to happen with the the condition was that as she grew, the narrowed artery was supposed to get narrower and cause heart failure.
She is now almost fully grown and she recently had a heart scan to see where we were at with the progress of the heart issue. Instead of the expected happening, the artery has grown with her heart, so although still narrow, it has adapted as she grew.
It does mean that she is still unable to be spayed or have any operations, but it has been confirmed that she could have many years left in her now.

Hope arrived with us from Nottingham after an urgent appeal went out for her. She had been found as a stray, but never claimed and the pound vet confirmed that she did have a Grade 4 heart murmur. The pound knew that the chances of her finding a rescue placement was slim, but agreed to give her a few extra days to see if anybody would come forward. We ok'd her 2 days before she was due to die.

On arrival Hope was very thin and had a very bad stomach bug which caused her horrendous diarrhoea. It was a very hard to shift bug but we got there in the end and that is when she started to weight gain. She is now at the ideal weight for her size.
She had signs of a flea allergy at some stage in her life. You could see where she had nibbled some hair away on her back. We retreated her for fleas/mange and also wormed her.

When Hope first arrived she got on well with the other dogs here, but she then came into season and started to get snappy with them, so we are now searching for a home for her as an only dog.
Hope could be homed with cats or other small furry pets.

Hope's exercise regime is very strict. She can only have a maximum of two walks per day lasting about half an hour. These walks need to be done in seclusion and away from other dogs. If she gets very excited she has been known to faint, but it only lasts for about 2 seconds and up she gets again!

Normally I would be pushing her socialising, but any extreme excitement could exhaust her, so we steer clear of other dogs here because we want her to have an enjoyable and stress free time.
It is very important that Hope is kept onlead for her walks. She can trot on an extendable lead when in fields, but she cannot race around. This is by order of the cardiologist!

Hope is wary of strangers but extremely cuddly and affectionate with her handler. Her favourite hobby is to lay curled up next to you on the sofa. She will snooze for hours on your lap. She loves human contact and is a joy to have around the house.

Hope bonds strongly with her handler. I am looking for someone who will take her adoption seriously and commit to her for life. She gets very upset when she loses someone she trusts.

Hope cannot be homed with children. The excitement levels that children have would be too much for Hope with her condition. I would like to see her in a calm environment.

Hope has been fully vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. She will also go to her new home with her heart scan details. Unfortunately she cannot be spayed or have any operations as her heart could not take it.

She will need a fully enclosed and secure garden to mooch about in with fence heights at a minimum of 5 foot all the way round.

A homecheck will be done and a donation of whatever you can afford to go towards her vet costs totalled in rescue would be gratefully received.

Hope will now be staying as a sanctuary animal due to her health issues, and is no longer looking for a home
