This adorable little lady is Rags and she has such a sad story to tell. She came into rescue with her friend Missy from her previous home where she was not being cared for properly and was most likely abused as well. Rags is now safe in the care of Starfish Dog Rescue where she is being treated kindly by her loving foster mum. She is a Norfolk terrier who is just 6/7 years of age.
Rags has the sweetest nature and is slowly responding to the love and care she is receiving in her foster home. It has been a heartbreaking journey for her; when she first arrived she just hid for days behind a chair and when she went into the garden, she would wedge herself behind the greenhouse and hide, the poor girl. She now has a regular routine which includes walks, meals and of course, lots of TLC.
Rags love going for her walks, but she is still quite nervous and the smallest thing can make her jump. The poor girl flattens to the ground as if she is afraid of being hit. However, she will come up behind you wagging her little tail and give you kisses. She is gaining confidence every day with her foster family, which includes another small dog.
Rags sleeps well all night upstairs and is clean in the house. She has met the granddaughter and is fine, although she does not like it when she plays drums with a wooden spoon. She would probably do best in a quiet home without lots of young children around. She desperately needs a loving, patient home where her owners will not expect too much of her to begin with but will allow her to gain their trust as slowly as she needs to.

Rags could share her home with another quiet, calm and gentle dog. She doesn’t have a bad bone in her body and she so deserves to be loved and cherished as she should have been earlier in her life.
Rags is spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated.
