Gentle giantess Jemima
Featured in episode four of The Dog Rescuers
Dogue de bordeaux Jemima is just three-years-old and looking for a forever home.
This sweet girl is currently in the care of Southridge Animal Centre in Potters Bar but deserves to find a home to call her own. Could you be the one to love her?
Laid-back Jemima is full of surprises
Jemima is the ultimate laid-back personality, who really enjoys a dog’s life. She simply loves cuddles and fuss.
Her favourite place is on the sofa, where she can usually be found sleeping. But, if you get hold of a ball, or her favourite toy - a fluffy-duck, she really comes alive.
It’s really funny because you just don’t expect it. She’s normally so laid back. Then all of a sudden things spring into action and she turns into a puppy again - kennel supervisor Claire Hoffman
Jemima’s unique story
When this lovely lady came into our care she was underweight and covered in sores. She’d simply not had the greatest start in life. And for poor Jemima things got worse before they dog better.
"We came into the kennels one morning and she was really poorly. We immediately called the vet - we were so worried about her. We thought she wasn’t going to make it."
Jemima had developed septicemia. It took several weeks of intensive veterinary care, and an operation, to get this gorgeous girl back on her feet again.
With no home to call her own, and an operation to recover from, a foster home was found to help Jemima get back to full strength and ready to love a family.
Jemima’s perfect home
Now she’s fully recovered and fighting-fit Jemima wants nothing more that to find that special someone to share a sofa with.
Jemima’s ideal home would be as the only pet in the household with someone who can give her all the love and attention she deserves.
She’s quick to learn, but strong on the lead, so her new owner’s will ideally have had experience owning larger breeds before.
Jemima isn’t used to being around children, so would prefer an adult only household, but with adults who will happily play with her when she’s feeling playful.
