Sooty

18-11-2014

 

Sooty who is approx 9 months has now been with us for just over a week and has been an absolute delight. She has a beautiful gentle personality, is house-trained, knows to wait for her dinner, plays and shares without any problems, and has very good recall off her lead - unless there is a playmate!

 

Sooty was not well socialised as a puppy and this has made her very shy and nervous. She is doing incredibly well while we are working on this but it is clear she will need a quiet home where someone is home most of the time, with at least one other friendly and calm dog to learn from, and no young children. Sooty will need to go to some socialisation/puppy classes to build up her confidence and independence.

 

Sooty is a beautiful girl who would really like to be someone's companion dog - she loves her walks, but mainly just wants to wander by your side, and when we get home she just wants to curl up for a long cuddle. If you are looking for a constant shadow and walking companion then she could be the girl for you.

Wally - Reserved

15-11-2014

 

Hi, I'm Wally I was a stray with my friend Willis the Whippet. I came to dogs friends very nervous and very smelly..... But look at me now I've been bathed brushed and cut and looking for my forever home. I'm still a little nervous and a bit scatty but love cuddles and love playing. I get on with other dogs and don't mind cats. I'm living in a busy house with 5 children aged between 2 and 14 so am well socialised. If I sound like the dog for you please get in touch x

William

10-11-2014

 

A few days ago, we were asked to take in a 15 week old GSD type pup by his owners as she could not afford to keep him. We agreed and had an ideal foster home lined up for him. He was called Tyson but, because we have had quite a few dogs with that name in recently, the foster carers decided on Wolfy for him (we are on W names).

 

He was collected and arrived here safely BUT he was not 15 weeks but 15 months old at least. Strangely, when his previous owner called that evening to check he was ok, they were adamant he was 15 WEEKS old...............

 

Anyway, however old he is, he has never had a collar and lead on, or had any training or socialising so you can imagine how daunted and petrified he was to have had a long trip over and then to arrive in a rural place (he came from a big city). Seeing the other dogs really worried him. His tail was tucked right under him and he kept trembling all over. But he showed no aggression thankfully. And he is a very handsome chap.

 

We had to rethink the best plan for him as the foster home lined up for him would have not been suitable sadly. They took in the whippet and Springer Spaniel who it turned out, had been dumped together and are very attached to each other (details and pictures soon).

 

Anyway, the plan was to keep Wolfy here and work with him. But, amazingly, an ideal foster home was offered to him and he went there yesterday. The foster carers have another lovely older GSD girl and their home is quiet and calm. And they adore GSD's. We all agreed the name Wolfy does not suit him so he has now been named William - and that suits him very well.

 

William is being fostered, starting his training and socialising, and being properly assessed in Weston super Mare.

Update from Foster carer 10/11/14

 

Just to let you know William is just amazing but even more amazing is Abby, accepted him, not phased at all.


William is so a puppy, into everything, didn't realise how well behaved Leah was and Abby is.
He does not have an aggressive bone in his body, he lets you take a chew off him quite happily.
 

Just had a puddle, but need to know the signs he wants to go out. Will keep you updated and try and get a better photo when he will sit still.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ruby the Shih Tzu - Reserved

09-11-2014

 

Ruby is a very pretty 5 year old golden honey coloured Shih Tzu who has just been retired from breeding pups. She is very cute and we really hopes she gets a great, loving forever home soon.

 

Ruby was lucky enough to go straight to a lovely foster home (with No Tail and other resident friendly little dogs) in Weston super Mare. Further updates and better pictures soon I am sure.

 

There is a minimum donation of £200.

 

Update from foster carer 15/11/14

 

Ruby is delightful, she is like a teddy bear but still nervous of me. She will let me stroke her but I start under her chin and then work backwards. She is clean in the house and sleeps well. She really does NOT like being in a pen, even the large puppy pen I have. I think she would be better homed where there is another friendly dog, she is very close to Nettie and it would be good if they can go together. I haven't taken them out yet so can't comment on that. She will chase after my cat in the garden - my silly cat will run! The first night she did bark but now I know it was because I had put them in the puppy pen, on the whole she is now quiet. I tried to give her a cuddle last night but she froze, I'm sure she will come round but s-l-o-w-l-y . I had just opened the door for them to go out before bed last night and there was an almighty bang, I jumped but the dogs didn't react at all. I hope she will find her forever home soon.

 

 

 

 

 

Lily the Lab

09-11-2014

 

Lily is a very gentle, sweet yellow Labrador who has just been retired as a breeding bitch and has come for us to find her a great forever home.

 

The farmer thought she was about 5 years old but the vet thinks she might be younger. Lily has limited eye sight and will see our eye specialist on Monday as our vet is really not sure what is going on with her eyes.

 

Lily was lucky to go straight to a lovely foster home on a quiet small holding with two other lovely canine ladies.

No Tail - AKA Nettie

09-11-2014

 

No Tail is an exceptionally sweet and gently tiny Westie girl. She is 2 years old and has not been a 'very good' breeding girl, so she has been retired from the farm and has come over for us to find her a great, loving, forever home where there is at least one other friendly little dog to show her the ropes and rules of home life.

 

Unfortunately, she has very recently lost her litter and still has a lot of milk plus a fever. So she went straight to a special, kind foster carer for pampering and careful care.

 

Further updates and pictures soon I am sure. No Tail is being fostered in Weston super Mare.

 

There is a minimum donation of £200.

 

Update from foster carer 15/11/14

 

 

I named No Tail Nettie as I could not see myself calling out No Tail in the park! She answers to Nettie (not to No Tail). She is delightful, she loves to have a fuss made of her and last night I gave her a cuddle and she curled up and fell asleep for an hour, she really snuggled into me, so sweet. She does jump up at me when I sit down but is learning what 'off' means! She is quiet but there are some noises that happen, like music or animal sounds on the television that she will bark at. I am working on this and I'm sure she will settle soon, she does sit and watch the television sometimes! It's just giving her time to get used to the different sounds. I had just opened the door for them to go out before bed last night and there was an almighty bang, I jumped but the dogs didn't react at all. I haven't taken them out yet so can't comment on that. I think she could be an only dog but only with someone who is at home most of the time or who can take her with them. She and Ruby are close to each other and it would be nice if they could go together. She does have the odd accident in the house, I need to recognize the signs she wants to go out. I hope she will find her forever home soon.

 

 

 

 

 

Ace - Reserved

04-11-2014

 

Ace is the sort of active, intelligent dog that doesn't do very well in kennels. So I have been spending as much time as possible with him. Initially, one word from me and he did as he liked but now he's learned that listening brings plenty of rewards, lots of praise and especially lots of treats! which he takes very gently. Ace now loves his training and is very focused, always wanting to do more.

Ace loves going for long walks and gets on well with my three dogs. His recall is good and his favourite game is being chased by another dog. He enjoys it all the more if its splashing through deep water, although he doesn't seem to like swimming.

Ace doesn't show much interest in livestock and has even walked past the kennel cat a few times, totally ignoring it! He is proving to be a great character, I just wish he could find a home. When I drive back to the kennels, Ace always rewards me with a great big kiss. I like to think this is his way of saying 'thank you' for all of my efforts but I sometimes wonder if its Ace's desperate plea for me not to leave. HEARTBREAKING!!

Ace now needs an experienced foster or forever home. Perhaps with another young dog with the same energy and playful nature. He desperately needs to be out of kennels, so he can continue learning to be the well behaved dog that he is trying so hard to be.

There is a minimum donation of £200.

 

A few months ago, we were asked to take in a large, young dog that the owner could not longer look after. He finally arrived here a few weeks ago and he was shockingly badly behaved and had obviously had no training, socializing or boundaries - all of which is bad for ANY dog but extra specially bad for a huge, strong dog!

 

Ace was purchased as an 8 week old pup by a lady for her teenage son. The son quickly lost interest apparently and soon after the lady had an accident and could do nothing with the dog. So, after a year or so, he arrived here as no one wanted him. And he was truly daunting. Luckily he is very good natured and is willing to learn.

 

Yesterday was probably the best day of his 18 months long life so far. He meet Fiona. And she is a very experienced, sensible and kind 'dog lady' who specialises in big dogs. Ace came out in his usual boisterous puppy way. Fiona spent time with him and the transformation was truly amazing!

 

This dog has huge potential, we are not sure what breed he is, Fiona thinks Great Dane cross. His records say Mastiff cross, but whoever his parents were, he has a kind good nature and in the right hands, will make a great dog.

 

Ace needs an experienced home with physically fit people - he is very big and strong and handsome. He will need continued and consistent guidance and training. We hope the great day he had yesterday, will be the first of very many for him.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Butch - Reserved

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 - Reserved

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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 - Reserved

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.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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 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.

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.
