In 2010 we re-homed Kisa from Battersea Dogs Home. She had been extremely abused, and abandoned in a forest. Hair loss, fleas and mites were just the tip of the ice-berg to what she had been through.
She was peppered with small, circular scars all over her back, which were found to be CIGARETTE BURNS (people actually put cigarettes out on her!). Her teats were over-developed, because she was used as a breeding machine, over and over. (Ladies, imagine giving birth, and two weeks later being forced back into pregnancy.) Also, many of her front teeth were damaged or smashed.
She was timid, and nervous but at the same time very loving and eager to please.
WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW?
We have been told by our housing association (Amicus Horizon) that alternative arrangements need to be made for Kisa, due to a breach of our lease. We have had her for two years, there have been no complaints or issues raised. We have spoken to our neighbours, and none have any problems with her, all agree she is quiet, friendly and well looked after. In short, we are responsible dog owners whom love her very much.
Consent CAN be given, but they are choosing not to. The reason? A 4 meter communal corridor we use to access our ground floor front door. We do not pass any other doors, or properties, and it takes a matter of seconds to pass through this corridor.
The purpose of this page is to generate support for Kisa, and hopefully with your help the housing association in question will reconsider and let us keep our dog with us, and our little family together.
Due to her past experiences, re-homing is simply out of the question. She would most probably die from the stress, and we, as humans owe it to her for it not to happen.

Losing Kisa would be like losing a family member and would completely destroy all of us.
