Butch

23-10-2014

 

Butch is another of the dogs that arrived over here from Wales today. He was handed in to us by his owner as she has become too ill to care for him. She was given him as a birthday present last March when the poor little pup was only just 4 weeks old.

 

He is a brown and white wired haired Jack Russell who has been very much loved and really deserves his own forever home a.s.a.p. He has not had as much training and exercise as is desirable due to his owners poor health, but he still appears to be a very happy, loving little chap. Sadly we don't have a foster home for him so really hope a great forever home comes along soon to save him being stuck in a kennel for too long.

Umy

23-10-2014

 

Umy is a very pretty but very scared young white Staffordshire Bull Terrier who arrived over here from the Brecon Beacons Pound. She was lucky that she was picked up straight away from here by a passionate Staffie loving foster carer, whisked to the vet for a check up and to start her vaccinations, etc. and is now happily in a foster home at Burnham on Sea.

She will be fully assessed - but the signs so far are that she is exceptionally kind and gentle. Further updates and pictures soon I am sure.

Uno

23-10-2014

 

These pictures really don't show how absolutely gorgeous, stunningly looking and friendly this blue coloured whippet cross lurcher boy is. He came over today from Brecon Pound after being picked up as a stray a couple of weeks ago and not claimed. It is truly amazing that his old owners abandoned him. They, or someone sometime in his life, have trained and cared for him. He went straight to the vet for a good health check and to start his vaccinations. The vet aged him as about 5 years. He then went straight to a lovely foster family in Weston super Mare where he will be pampered (he is very thin) and better assessed.

 

Uno, like a lot of the dogs, come to us from quite a long way. The volunteers who transport them over to us from Wales or elsewhere, do a fantastic job and are greatly appreciated. And the volunteers who do the endless shorter trips once the dogs are in our care to take them to the vet or a foster home or the groomers, etc. are invaluable too. They very often do so at a moments notice. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE.

Scamp

22-10-2014

 

Scamp is a very loving, playful little dog. He loves his walks and playing fetch with his ball. He will sit and give a paw for treats. He is on diet food at present as he is overweight. However, this doesn't seem to bother him when he is racing about. He gets on well with my little male dog and also another JR female who I walk for a friend.

 

The only negative is CATS and small furries. He cannot live with either of these and as he barks at my 6 yr old but is fine with my 11 yr old, It would be best for him to go to home with children over 10. He will make a super dog for someone.

Tracey

07-10-2014

 

Tracey is a tiny (9 kgs) young collie girl who was dumped on the Brecon Beacons. No one claimed her from the Pound so she came over to us for re homing.

 

This lovely little lady is very timid and scared at the moment. But she showed no aggression. She has been lucky enough to go straight in to a foster home at Weston Super Mare. Her foster family will send a fuller write up and better pictures soon I am sure.

Toby George

07-10-2014

 

We are very busy and have lots of dogs needing homes, many of which no one wants sadly (dogs too old, too big, unpopular breed, too scared, etc.) There is rarely a day goes by without us being asked to take in dogs. Often we get asked to take in several dogs each day.

 

This afternoon my sister phoned me. She had taken her beloved dogs to the vet for general health checks. Whilst there, Georgina saw a very upset looking uniformed lady with a beautiful, calm, happy looking young dog sitting quietly next to her. My sister asked the lady what she was doing there - though she know what the answer would be. The lady was a dog warden and she was waiting, with huge sadness, to take the dog in to the vet to be put to sleep. The dog had been found straying a couple of weeks ago. He had a chip but the people he was registered to said ' they had sold him' and did not want him. No one wanted him in fact. The dog warden had tried 7 large, well known rescues - no one would take him.

 

My sister asked if we would take him. She was in tears and begged us to save this young dogs life. The reason no one else would help - he is a staffie..............

 

What could I say?

 

I said yes and, within a whisker of being too late as the vet was preparing to inject him, my sister saved this dog. Literally by seconds.

 

The dog warden gratefully delivered him to us. He is now here - and now needs a very special forever home asap please. We have called him Toby George. And he will go and be neutered next week. He is an unusually marked dog. And unusually friendly and calm too.

Sophia - Reserved

07-10-2014

 

Sophia is a very beautiful 2 year old black and tan Cavalier cross Cocker Spaniel. She is very timid as she has come from a Welsh Farm and has not seen any thing else. Though she is worried, she is very sweet and gentle natured. Sophia will only be re homed where there is at least one other friendly young dog as a companion and guide for her. Hopefully we will be able to find Sophia a good foster home where she can be further assessed shortly. She has several bald patches and is not in a great condition at the moment. I am sure, given time and a good diet, she will quickly become a stunning young lady.

Kenny - Not available for adoption yet.

07-10-2014

 

Kenny is a 3 year old Springer Spaniel who has had a very very sad life so far and, therefore, needs a VERY VERY special, understanding, sensible forever home which is in the country and has other dogs there that are kind and friendly.

 

He is a cracking dog and has showed no aggression - just sadness, sorrow and sensitivity. If you think you deserve this young dog, please contact us and his history will be explained to you. HE MUST GO WITH OTHER DOGS!!!

Benji Collie

07-10-2014

 

Benji is a very handsome 3 year old Collie who was been handed in to the Pound due to a marriage break up. Allegedly, he is used to family life and living with young children. Benji has been staying with a new foster family who are novice dog carers. He has been fantastic in their house. 100 per cent good. Out on walks, he is rather a handful but he is going to start dog training classes with them shortly and I am sure he will quickly learn. Benji has been back here for the last week whilst his foster family have been on a weeks holiday. During this week, he has been neutered. He has also spent time with several of my resident dogs and has been excellent with them.

 

There is a minimum donation of £200.

 

Update from foster carer 14/10/14

 

He is a loving dog but also independent which means he can be left on his own happily for a few hours. For walks we changed the lead to a halti which has made walking him extremely easier. He isn't aggressive towards other dogs but he does bark as a warning if he feels scared. He's always very well behaved in the house and does what he is told. He absolutely loves playing fetch and tug of war. And he also responds to the following commands: sit, come, give, lie down, role over, and paw.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alba

02-10-2014

 

Alba is a gorgeous dog from Romania, Dogsfriends kindly agreed to take her in from an organisation that raise funds to bring them over from dreadful high kill shelters, where the dogs are literally beaten to death rather than being PTS once the shelters are full.

 

She is a wonderful dog, walks nicely on a lead, appears to be house-trained using a dog flap too. Alba is more Labrador than anything. She loves people and kids but we wouldn't place her anywhere with young children as we don't have a full history on her.

 

However she gets on well with my 12 and 13 year old.

 

Alba would love a home with another dog to keep her company. Alba did have a bout of Distemper, from which she is completely cured now, but does have a post Distemper tremor which means she constantly trembles a little bit. This doesn't cause her any concern or pain but it is just something for potential adopters to bear in mind when they meet her.

 

Could you offer Alba a family of her own?

Update from foster carer 1/10/14

 

So, we need a foster home for a dog that we're fostering for another rescue. The other rescue are happy for us to appeal on their behalf. Alba has been fostering with us (me Cerian) for a few months now. When she arrived I saw that she had a slight tremour in her back legs and after much research it seems that this is from having distemper as a pup but amazingly surviving it. Alba fits in fine into our busy household, gets on with the kids, visitors, other dogs etc but she's started to fit occasionally, again this is thought to be from distemper years ago. This in itself isn't a huge problem, although not very nice for her. The problem is that living in a large pack of dogs, a dog that fits is not safe, when dogs fits generally other dogs will pitch in and attack the fitting dog. After her last fit my dogs think that there is something rather wrong with her (and they'd be right) so now they have taken a dislike to her even when she's not fitting. She is fine with some dogs like Squirrel, max, sara and with the tiny dogs. So Alba sadly needs a new long term/permanent foster home. She loves her walks and is very spritely, she's only 4 in her passport but looks about 10 when you meet her, until she has a funny five mins and races round playing. If you think you could offer her the safe and comfy foster home she deserves then please contact me and we'll go from there. At the moment she is kept separate from the majority of the dogs to keep her safe, this obviously isn't ideal for her because it means she's not in with us all the time which is where she'd like to be, also my house is fairly small and all the space is needed.

Reggie - Reserved

31-08-2014

 

Reggie is a big strong tan and white coloured Staffordshire Bull Terrier who was born on 14th November last year. He has recently come to us as his owners are moving to a rented house where they are not allowed to take him.

 

He was lucky enough to go straight in to a foster home but, sadly, he is not as we were told he was and so he had to come to the stables. Reggie is very unhappy and confused to be here. He really needs a very staffie savvy foster or forever home urgently where he can be guided, trained and nurtured so he can become a good friend and companion.

 

Reggie is now at the Stables, has now been neutered and is ready to go to foster or, preferably, a forever home asap.

Shep & Benji - Reserved

29-08-2014

 

Shep and Benji are a pair of older Westie boys who have been very much loved. Sadly their owner recently passed away so the boys came over to us so we can find them a great retirement home. They are both 12 years old but are really loving their lives, so don't let their age put you off. Both are lovely dogs. Quiet, well behaved and happy. So if you like Westies - you will love these two. Currently being fostered in Weston-Super-Mare.

 

 

There is no minimum donation but please bare in mind the various costs incurred so far.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lise

28-08-2014

 

Lise she is 12yrs old, spayed. Owner working double shifts and wants to re-home her. She is okay with larger dogs but worried around small ones. She is good with children....bloody shame to part with her at that age. She is a short haired border collie.

 

This poor old lady urgently needs a foster or forever home.

 

She has various health issues. I tried not to take her as we have absolutely no money for her vet bills - but no one else will.......................

 

Really really urgent. Anyone??? Please!!!!

The 4 Shih Tzu's - Updated

28-08-2014

 

Blackie, Cyndey, Mel & Polly are four Shih Tzu girls, all aged between 6 and 8 years old. Their owner has become too ill to care for them any more. She, very sadly, gave them to us for re homing. They have all been much loved but have never left their farm before, so ever thing is now very new to them.

 

All four girls are very attached to each other and appear to live in peace and harmony. We never ever separate pairs of dogs that love each other. We do often get pairs, and, indeed, have quite a few pairs at the moment (Shep and Benji, Tiny and Chloe, Lenny and Harry etc.). I did have three very attached ex breeding yellow Labrador girls and they were lucky enough to all be adopted together. And very recently, three of our ex breeding poodles all went to a great new home together.

 

But I think it will be pushing it to find anyone to take on all FOUR together. So, I know it is another huge ask, but these four lovely ladies really need to go in to a very sensible and experienced foster home where they can be carefully observed to work out who needs to go with who.

 

They are all very friendly and appear to be in good condition.

 

Update 15/9/14

The four Shih Tzu's went to see our lovely eye specialist today. From the left, here is what he found

 

Cyndey - completely blind. But she is incredibly friendly and outward going.

Blackie - she has some sight and is definitely the most outward going and the 'boss'.

Polly - again, she is completely blind but so affectionate and brave

Mel - her eyes are both very good. Bizarrely, she is the most timid.

 

The four little dogs have spent the last couple of weeks with a very good temporary foster carer (it was she who realised that a couple of them had trouble seeing. The plan was that Jenny would work out which pair gets on better with each other. But they all get on so well. I have never met four dogs that live in such peace and harmony. I have them back at the Stables now. They are going to another foster home tomorrow for further assessing. But I can't imagine things will greatly change between them. They are just a great, cute bunch of lovely little ladies.

 

Donation to be discussed with Rose for these 4 little poppets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Harry & Lenny

28-08-2014

 

Lenny (Blenheim) and Harry (tri coloured) are two of the loveliest Cavaliers you could ever meet. They are a pair of middle aged chaps that have been very much loved. Sadly their owners were having to work very long hours and the boys were left a lot. So they have come all the way from the other side of London to us so we can get them a great forever home.

 

They went straight in to a lovely foster home in Burnham on Sea and they have settled in very quickly. They are very different characters apparently. Harry is very active and loves his beach walls, etc. Lenny is much quieter and more laid back. They do not appear to be very attached BUT we PROMISED we would not part them - so, obviously, we will only re-home them as a pair together.

 

Both boys were rather overweight but are losing weight nicely. They need and deserve a fairly active home where they are kept fit and very happy.

 

Harry and Lenny could possibly be split. Lenny needs a quiet, pampering home. Harry needs an active home with other dogs and lots going on.

Izzy

28-08-2014

 

Well, if we were running a competition for the dog in the worst state, Izzy would undoubtedly be the clear winner. She is cutest Shih Tzu you could possibly have - but her coat is one big matted mess and her skin so sore. She is 5 year old, newly retired breeding girl with an amazingly sweet and gentle nature. She is going to the groomers very soon and her coat will have to be totally shaved off. She will feel much more comfortable then but will need little coats to keep her warm till her coat grows back obviously.

 

Izzy has fortunately been taken to a lovey quiet foster home in Weston super Mare, where, best of all, there are two other friendly Shih Tzu's who came to us from the same farm and were adopted by their foster carer. (Maybe Izzy will be lucky too.....)

Millie Yorkie

28-08-2014

 

Poor poor Millie is a very moth eaten looking black and tan Yorkshire. She has lots of sore places on her body, especially round her ears and eyes. This lovely little lady has just been retired from being a breeding bitch - she is now looking for a great, forever retirement home where she can learn about life as a pampered pet. Like the vast majority of ex puppy farm dogs, she will need a home with at least one other friendly canine to show her the ropes. Millie is being fostered near Weston super Mare. I am optimistic that, given time and good food, etc., she will become a very different looking dog soon.

 

There is a minimum donation of £200.

 

 

Update 11/9/14

 

Millie the 6 year old black and tan Yorkie is still looking for her forever home. She has a lovely personality and is quickly overcoming her fear of loud scary noises. She has some excellent traits including greeting you with huge cuddles when you enter the house and loves cuddling up to you on the sofa. She also enjoys an occasional tumble with my terrier. I am pleased to say since starting her antibiotics course her skin seems to be improving dramatically and her fur around her eyes and belly is growing back. Millie would be best going to a home where there are other dogs her size to learn from and play with. She does not yet ask to go to the toilet, however we have only had one accident in the house. She is generally good with other dogs, but she will tell dogs off it they are too much. She is still learning to socialise and walk on the lead and likes to stop on her walks. She would be best going to somewhere where the other dogs also do not need a lot of walking. If you would like to see more of Millie and enquire about adoption please contact dogs friends or like our page The Jones' foster dog family on Facebook.

 

Update 26/9/14

 

This little lady is still with us. She has completely settled into our home now. She now looks forward to her daily walks and loves to lay on the stairs and watch the lounge. She sleeps in a crate at night as we were having issues with her toileting in the night. She is slowly learning basic commands with treats and enjoying her new life away from breeding. She is yet to be spayed due to being in season, but will be soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daisy

28-08-2014

 

Daisy is a Bichon Frise bitch newly retired from breeding who is about 7 years old. She is very cute and really deserves a great forever home. We were told she is nervous and can be 'snappy' if scared. But she has been 100 per cent good here, even when the vet did all sorts of things to her - there was not one grumble.

 

Daisy has gone to a lovely quiet foster home, where another little Bichon already lives. The foster carer will send a further update soon I am sure.

 

Update from foster carer 14/9/14

 

Today I had her professionally groomed but all her fur had to really come off, its a shame, but her face and ears look lovely. The first week she was a model dog, she loves Bella and follows her everywhere. Now she is settled in although we had had a few accidents in the house. She is no longer timid, will walk with her lead and collar and take a biscuit from my hand. She will not actually come to me for a cuddle, but gets close when Bella is on my lap. She loves being in a house and the garden and sleeps with Bella. She does not like sleeping alone and I think she will need a little dog for company when she goes to her forever home. She is a little darling and every day is a great improvement.

Jessie

25-08-2014

 

Jessie is a striking, chunky, beautiful 6 years old Labrador cross Malamute who has been much loved by her last owner. Unfortunately Jessie became too unreliable around the cats on the small holding were she lived with her older lady owner/ So sadly she is now here. She is such a lovely dog. Poor Jess keeps howling and crying softly to herself when she is left (the Malamute half of her). But when she is out and about with people, she is very happy, obedient and waggy, especially when treats are involved (that the Labrador half of her). We really hope to find Jessie a lovely, active country home as soon as possible where there are no felines and the owners are experienced, calm and sensible - in return, they will have a great friend.

 

 

Update 18/7/14

 

Poor Jess had an accident with her paw recently and had to had an emergency visit to the vets. The vet is very concerned as all her paws are getting sore as she tends to pad around her kennel a lot.

 

Fortunately Jessie has gone into a foster home at last. It is reported that she is getting along very well with Bammy who is neutered 11 year old Ridgeback.

 

 

Update from foster carer 23/08/14

 

Regarding her progress:

  • Her resource guarding is improving as she becomes more secure.

  • Her recall is patchy but improving.

  • Her relationships with other dogs still has a way to go - work in progress. She's less growly on meeting other dogs (I'm giving her lots of neutral / positive experiences with confident local dogs) but she just doesn't know when to stop sniffing them and following them about which annoys them.

  • And I don't think she'd encountered traffic before.

  • She hasn't howled in ages.

  • She likes to run barking to anyone who comes to the gate (or if my neighbours come home late or leave early - which I'm discouraging!)

  • She's adorable with people, and behaves like a playful puppy quite a lot of the time.

  • Since the biting incident, I've been supervising her with my dog and separating them, although we have been walking all together.

  • Her ideal situation would be to go somewhere with lots of people and activity and cuddles, but no other dogs.

 

The donation for Jessie is negotiable with Rosemary.

Meg

14-08-2014

 

Meg is an extremely cute 6 year old Border Terrier. Her owner has recently emigrated and, sadly, had to leave Meg behind. She is a lovely, very people friendly little dog. She is said to be very good with children and some dogs. Not cats though.

 

Hopefully, Meg is going to be able to go in to a foster home very soon, where she can be further assessed. A forever home would be great though.

 

There is a minimum donation of £200.

 

 

Update from foster carer 22/10/14

 

Meg who is a 6 yr old is coming on slowly, she is a great little dog indoors and out, playful and affectionate and call back is excellent. Her downside is that she does not get on with other dogs, when on walks she has to be kept on the lead wearing a muzzle if other dogs are around. I have only had her a few weeks and we are making good progress with other dogs but still work to do, I think living with another dog would help her enormously as once she gets to know another dog she behaves much better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blaze - Reserved

05-08-2014

 

Blaze is a very special dog. She is incredible kind, sweet and gentle. A lovely soul, through and through. She is about nine or ten years old, is blind in one eye and has, at the moment, very sore skin. Blaze is having all the vet care she needs lavished on her. How she can be so calm and relaxed with such painful skin and terrible ears, I really don't know. I wish I had half her courage and patience..................

 

We are looking for a five star forever home for this lovely lady. She came from the 'bad' place where the owner seemed to delight in giving his dogs 'good' kickings. So Blaze is said to be very wary of men. She went to another farm for a few months and did not come straight from the 'bad' farm by the way - it is closed down now.

Tim

24-07-2014

 

Tim, the middle aged Collie, came to us last year in a sorry state. He was found straying on the Brecon Beacons and was very very frail and lame. Our vets x-rayed his legs and discovered he had old breaks on a front and a back leg, neither legs having been set and pinned to get them right. After a few weeks of care and comfort, he got fitter and was able to go and live on a local farm as a companion to the retired, elderly farmer.

 

All went very well for many months. Very unfortunately, Tim went for another dog that appeared on 'his' farm and inadvertently bit that dogs owner when she tried to part the dogs. Even more unfortunately, the lady complained to the local police and has made a very big issue out of this. The police, though very understanding, have insisted that, to protect Tim, we remove him. The farmer is devastated at losing his constant friend and companion. Tim is not feeling much happier either.

 

This lovely lad needs a foster or, even better, a forever home asap please.

 

 

 

 

 

Diesel - On home trial

22-07-2014

 

Everyone here loves our great big happy pup Diesel. He has transformed a lot over the weeks he has been here and he is now loving playing with other dogs and with people. Strangely, like Ace, he adores big, strong men the most. And, again like Ace, it would be great to get him a forever home with an active, intelligent young man- who will help Diesel live a full and happy life.

 

There is NO minimum donation for Diesel.

Ace

22-07-2014

 

Ace is a huge, shiny dog who adores big strong men especially. He is INCREDIBLY strong (on all levels) but he is totally without malice. Very unfortunately, his original owners gave him zero training, boundaries and guidelines, so, though he is going to be 2 in a few months, he acts like a great big excited puppy - and therefore he daunts a lot of people.

 

His dream home would be with an active, intelligent young man - who would teach and encourage Ace to be the same!

 

He has been here for months already and though he is tolerating kennel life, he is getting very sad to be stuck indoors - he wants to be out and about with his special person.

Flo Jo

22-07-2014

 

Update from foster carer 12/8/14

 

Flo is a very gentle lady. She is very well mannered, walks to heel on and off the lead. She doesn't really care for other dogs and children are a bit too loud and bouncy for her liking. She loves humans, she is very affectionate and gives the best cuddles. She just has so much character.

 

Flo Jo has had a tough last 12 months. Firstly, her owner had a very bad accident and is still in hospital, with it looking unlikely that he will ever come out. Luckily one of his friends took Flo Jo in but, unfortunately the dog snapped at one of the toddler grand children at the weekend. So, rather then the dog being pts, we have taken her in.

 

She is a 7 year old, smallish, long haired black/grey lurcher lady. She has been living in harmony with other dogs. At the moment, she is very shell shocked and timid. We hope to get her a great forever home asap. In the mean time, a foster home, without babies or toddlers, would be great. Flo Jo has just finished having a season so will needing spaying in 3 months, which we will arrange.

Mathilda A.K.A Pink Westie

07-07-2014

 

Well, we had a blue Westie last year - Ruby. Now a pink coloured Westie has arrived. She is 2 years old and has sore skin which the last owner has been treating.

 

This little Westie was called Wendall - but she really deserves a pretty, girlie name. Ideas for a new name beginning with M please?

Update from foster carers 11/7/14

 

Having enjoyed her supper has now settle down to watch re runs of the last of the summer wine.

 

Update 3/9/14

 

 

Mathilda also known as Pink is a Westie cross, about 2 1/2 years old.
She gets on with other dogs, is house trained, but still needs help learning to walk on the lead. Mathilda will sit for a treat and her meals.
Mathilda cannot go with cats. She is wary of people having come from a puppy farm but has zero aggression. Mathilda would like a quiet home in a rural area with perhaps a another friendly dog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judy & Jessie

Judy                                      Jessie

 

Judy and Jessie are two very cute, tiny Yorkshire Terriers girls, both aged about 7 years, that arrived from a puppy farm last weekend. They were lucky enough to go straight in to a foster home - where they have both thrived. Judy and Jessie are sweet, friendly little dogs but will need to live with other kind, friendly little dogs. Their foster carer thinks they will be fine to be parted - so long, as I say, they do not go as only dogs.

 

They are being fostered near Bristol.

Lexy

22-04-2014

 

Lexy is a very loving and well-trained six year old female staffie who I've been fostering since Sept 2013. She loves to have cuddles on the sofa, go on walks and play ball. She's perfectly house trained, walks well on and off the lead, only plays with her toys and never chews anything that's not hers.

 

She always does as she's told - including ignoring the wild ducks that have recently arrived in the garden! She has managed to make all visitors to the house fall in love with her, despite many having previously had no interaction with staffie's and having preconceptions about the breed. In no time at all she's sitting on their knee having a cuddle or making them play ball with her.

 

I have a four year old son who she tolerates but is unsure of at times so she really would be happier in a house with older/no children. She also gets scared when other dogs run up to her on walks so would be best in a house with no other dogs.

 

She had a cancerous tumour removed last Sept - but there have been no signs of any re-growth in the last 7 months and she seems to be in perfect health so it's likely the whole growth was removed.

 

There is NO minimum donation for Lexy, but please bear in mind that we have spent hundreds of pounds to get her fit and healthy.

 

 

 

 

 

Bruno

03-04-2014

 

Bruno is a small terrier cross mainly Jack Russell, but a little longer in the body than the average Jack Russell.

 

Bruno was homed with an elderly gentleman in July of last year. Sadly, the gentleman had a heart attack in February. It has now been confirmed that he cannot return to his home so Bruno needs a new home.

 

Bruno doesn’t like cats, there have been some issues with dogs, but he is living with other dogs now with no problem.

Winter & Wonder - Foster family adopting

02-04-2014

 

Wonder and Winter are wired haired fox terrier cross miniature poodles, born dual sexed, and now aged 6 months old, having arrived here at 5 weeks old. They have grown in to lovely, happy, lively young pups.

 

Wonder has had her surgery now and is recovering very well. Winter is due to have her op shortly. These two pups are very attached to each other so can only be re-homed together. They have been very well handled, trained and socialised by their foster carer and are ready (as soon as Winter has her surgery) to go to their own forever home.

Oscar

28-01-2014

 

 

 

Oscar is a 6 year old Rottermann who is looking for a new home - either foster or (preferably) forever home - asap as his owner is too ill to look after him.  Oscar's best friend is a little Yorkie and he likes cats too apparently.  He is a bit shy with new dogs.

 

Update 8/2/14

 

Oscar has gone to a new foster home, watch this space for new photos and information.

 

Update 23/2/14

 

Great news for Oscar, he will be going back to his owner in the very near future.

 

Update 7/3/14

 

It seems that poor Oscar will not be returning home as his owner has made the decision that he is no longer required!!!

There must be some body that can give this special chap a good home.

 

Update 1/5/14

 

Oscar is interacting with our 5 other dogs really well. On the lead he does lunge at other dogs but it's obviously because he is nervy and not aggressive. He is an absolute softy. He accepts our cat. In all he is a lovely dog and is fine with people and other dogs once he has got over his apprehension and got to know them.

He is still looking for a permanent home and as his foster carers we will continue to work with him in the meantime.

Cassie the Rottie - Long term foster

01-09-2013

Update 2/8/14

 

Cassie is no longer available for adoption as she will be another of our long term foster dogs.

 

 

Cassie is a lovely, amazingly good natured 5 year old Rottweiler at we took in last week end.  She had been rescued from an awful situation at the beginning of this year.  Unfortunately, the couple who took her in became too ill to look after her so we were asked to help her. Even more unfortunately, they failed to tell us she has a very bad back leg which will require major surgery to correct and take away the pain.   The couple had spent money on having a large, benign lump removed from
one of her back legs and feeding her up, but they could not spend the money fixing her cruitite ligament that had 'broken' on her other back leg. As soon as she arrived, it was obvious how bad it was.  She saw our vets first thing morning who agreed and her great foster carers brought her over again on Tuesday her full xrays to confirm this.

Update

Cassie is a beautiful Rottie that desperately needs a cruciate operation. Dogs friends took Cassie in and are trying to raise funds. She is an easy foster dog but has had a troubled life, this shows in day to day life. We're sure the right home is out there for her but obviously she cannot be homed until the operation is done . Please help us raise funds for this wonderful girl. The operation will be between £1000 and £1300 thank you. If you would like to donate to help this little lady out, we'd really appreciate it. You can donate by either sending a cheque to us, marked for Cassie or use our paypal button on our website. Maybe you'd like to hold a little fundraiser, like a cake sale or a coffee morning? Thankyou so much for your support.

 

There is NO minimum donation for Cassie, but please bear in mind that we have spent hundreds of pounds to get her fit and healthy.
