Hello,my name is Clemmy (short for Clementine) they named me that up at Battersea Dogs home.
I was there for about six months,my old owners turned my sister and I out onto the streets of London and we were picked up by the old dog wardens.
I was very thin,and infested with all sorts of things,and I felt quite poorly,and sad.

Then one day I got released and sent down South to my new mum and dad...
Boy!! was I pleased..... trouble is I didn't like strangers much at all,and I trusted no one.
I really wanted to trust and be happy,but I couldn't....not at first.
I have been ill treated you see,in the other home.....but I don't want to go there...don't want to think about it any more.....

My new owners are great...I can see they love me,and I have grown to love and trust them.......I have all the comforts and great meals etc....I get lots of cuddles,great walks/runs, brushing.and tickle tummy's.....but I still cannot trust anyone else/strangers outside,or even them coming into my new home.....is it because I think they are going to take me away.....or could it be them..(the old owners come to take me back) !!
I run and hide till they have gone......

But hey,let me show you all a pix of me....then another day I'll tell you more with other pix.

I am a bit shy....so please be patient with me. See you next time you call in.. h-i-d-e

OMG T-issues Your story has brought tears to my eyes :( But how wonderful to have a loving home at last 4d544553 B-lowKiss A big hug and a kiss for you Clemmy f-lowers And even flowers :lol:

Bless her - she is beautiful Caro. I can see she has some lab in her but not sure what else - she has one of those expressive faces and I can't make my mind up if she has great dane or boxer features :lol: I know they are completely different looks but it's hard to tell from the angle of the photo. Whatever she is lovely. I look forward to seeing more pics of her :)

Apologies, Clemmy and Caro :lol: I have just read 'Anatolian Shepherd'

Now that's a breed I have never heard of :unsure:

Thanks voice and sherry......Clemmy's breed Originates from Turkey...
(Google Anatolian Shepherd ).....but she was born here in England.......her sister Poppycorn didn't make it at the kennels in London...she was found to have cancer in the stomach...and was sadly put to sleep,there was nothing they could do for her... T-issues

Oh, she's a big girl and I can see the shepherd in her now in these close up photos.
Nothing like a lab or the other breeds I mentioned :ph43r: Sorry Caro

She reminds me a bit of our dog in the last photo.

Our Clemmy is so frightened by even the sound of my camera being switched on or off...I have to do it out of the room or where ever, so as she cannot hear it,and take my chances......

I love this one,although thin,she looks quite majestic imo.....like a lioness almost.

There's a definite likeness in some photos to Merlin. It's strange as Merlin can look quite different in each photo as he has an expressive face, which looks to be the same for Clemmy.
There are several pics in here of Merlin :lol: As the older members will know :lol: I'll see if I can find one...........

Oh - he's german shepherd supposedly crossed with border collie, but people often ask if he's leonberger :lol:

Before I had this dog (Gilly) I had another one - called Trixie - and she passed away when the two girls body's were found (Holly and Jessica); that is how I remember it. I think that was about 2001.

Clemmy is gorgeous Caro, and I so admire you for taking on a rescue dog. We used to foster rescue dogs years ago, and some of the stories were heartbreaking.

I love big dogs, and my nursemaid (because she clings to me like glue when I am not feeling well) is a Dogue de Bordeaux (French Mastiff), Ludo
