Niamh (an Irish name pronounced “neave”, meaning radiance and brightness) is a delightful, middle-aged lady, who has had more than her fair share of hardship in life. Surrendered to TEARS Animal Rescue from a low income community, Niamh was emaciated and at death’s door suffering with a severe case of biliary (tick-bite-fever). Despite how weak she was, her tail would give a little wag every time she saw us. After a life-saving blood transfusion and some TEARS TLC, it didn’t take long for the sparkle to return to her eye! Niamh adores human company, is good with other dogs and would make a fantastic addition to almost any family. A devoted soul mate with a splash of independent flare, she’s easy-going, great on leash and, while she won’t be running any marathons, she loves going for outings and enjoying the great outdoors. All she dreams of is a warm, loving family to spend the latter half of her life with; something she’s never experienced before and truly deserves! Can you be the one to offer this beautiful soul her happy-ever-after?
