“By God, when you see your beauty you will be the idol of yourself.”
– Rumi (13th Century poet & Sufi mystic)
Rumi is an 8-month-old desexed female Amstaff x Shar Pei – quite possibly the runt of her litter, as she is quite petite for her breeding.
Smart, sweet, lovely Rumi has been in BDR’s care for 3-weeks. She arrived with us in a highly traumatised state, suffering severe anxiety and timidity.
Rumi’s kind, patient foster-carers have been slowly & gently socialising her, and allowing her the off-leash beach exercise she needs to vent her young & enthusiastic energy. She has good re-call, is excellent with other dogs and adores her house-mate Harry, the older, easy-going Husky.
Rumi is particularly terrified of tall Caucasian men, but also continues to be timid around unfamiliar people. She is definitely improving and gaining confidence, but will need ongoing gentle socialisation with people (and dogs) to continue to build her trust.
Rumi is a beauty, who will bring joy into the heart of her new forever companion or family. She will only be good with calm, gentle children who understand how to handle a sensitive dog.
