the Month



APPROX 12 Months

This little beauty isn't having the best of luck bless her. Jasmine originally came to us as a young pup back in August last year. We rehomed her quickly but after three months her family made the very emotional and upsetting decision to return her after Jasmine began showing behaviour in the home that was worrying them. The home was a busy and hectic one with children running around and Jasmine didn't seem to cope with this very well, she was sometimes frightened and wasn't always given her own space to escape from what was frightening her. There was a behavoirist involved with the family and she thought that it was just a case of the household being too busy for Jasmine.

We had Jasmine back with us for a full month and couldn't fault her behaviour here at all so we again rehomed her, this time she only stayed out for two weeks and was again returned. It seemed that Jasmine started to become possessive of her new home, not liking strangers who came into the house.

We are looking for a very special and experienced home for Jasmine and someone who is prepared to do some training with her and will help her to overcome her worries about having to protect her home. She is a really lovely girl and here we have had no problems with her whatsoever. Jazzy Bean is definately a firm favourite with staff and our volunteer walkers!!

We think Jasmine would do well in a quiet home where there aren't too many comings and goings. She is very loving, adores cuddles and never misses an opportunity to give kisses!!!  Having said that she is super active and will need both physical and mental stimulation.

Jasmine walks really well on the lead and is generally quite a calm dog until she see's someone that she knows well and then she gets wildly excited bless her!  She is happy to be around other dogs and still being a typical puppy she just wants to play. In the playpen she likes to have a good blast round and her very favourite game is football. She will chase balls and toys but she doesn't bring them back.

If you can offer this beautiful lady lots of cuddles and a quiet child free home please get in touch. 

Not cat tested.

If you think you can offer Jasmine the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on
