** BOBBY – RESERVED **

Breed: Jack Russell cross

Gender: male

Age: 4

Can live with children: no

Can live with dogs: yes, I would like to live with another dog but it isn’t essential.

Can live with cats: yes

Extra requirements: female only household or with a confident man

Bobby is still looking for his special home!

Bobby has been with us for quite a while now and is looking for a very special home. Unfortunately Bobby has had a very troubled life and that reflects in his behaviour.

Although Bonnie can be cuddly and he enjoys human company, he often doesn’t like being touched and needs an owner who understands cuddles are on his terms.

Bobby does have a long bite history and has recently come back from his Foster home due to biting. Because in the past Bobby’s warning signs have been ignored he now bites first and asks questions later, although with training this has gotten much better and he will now lip raise first. That being said he does love the attention from his human and enjoys being in the same room as his people

Bobby has had a hard life and because of this is looking for a female only home, or a home with a confident male who understands Bobbie’s fear of men. Bobby has been known to bite the ankles of men whilst out on a walk so must wear a muzzle when in public, however we haven’t had this issue in a long time. Bobbie is regularly visiting the park with some of his canine pals and so far has not snapped at another human and even jumped up for treats! That being said a muzzle is still essential just incase!

He can live with dog savvy cats but would like to live with another confident dog!!! Despite all of his problems Bobby can be a very loving and very sweet boy.

Bobby takes much comfort from being around other dogs. His behaviour is much better (although he will always be a bite risk) when he has a confident canine pal with him.

Do you have the extra special home Bobby is looking for?

** WALLY **

Breed: Lurcher

Gender: Male

Age: 2 years

Can live with children: no

Can live with dogs: No, but can have dog friends on a walk

Can live with cats: no

Extra requirements: needs an experienced owner

This handsome lad is a 18 month old Lurcher who has been in our care for a while now.

Wally is a very energetic and enthusiastic young boy who is looking for a home that can meet his needs and continue his ongoing training.

He has had a troubled past having had several homes before he came into our care. Although in the past Wally has bitten due to poor handling and for asking to much of him, Wally is now much more settled and hasn’t had any bite incidents for quite some time. Wally has become much better with his issues and now has clear trigger points, making it easy to see when he is uncomfortable in a situation. Although he does have a bite history Wally has progressed hugely since being in our care, he has become an absolute cuddle monster who just loves to be with his people.

Wally wants to be involved in everything and anything, he is very inquisitive. He loves attention and loves to play, although sometimes needs to be reminded not to get too hyper!. He does like to curl up on his bed after play and be near his humans, if you’re lucky enough he’ll even lay next to you for a cuddle!!

Wally has become much better on a walk and although we still advise a muzzle on a walk, (when out in busy places) he is proving time and time again with a little direction from his handler he can walk nicely and calmly without becoming overwhelmed or needing to wear his muzzle.

Wally walks nicely on a slip lead and although he has silly moments he will calm down when told. Wally’s biggest issue is that he does not like to be held or grabbed. In the past Wally has bitten when being held however with training will now happily let you take his collar and lead him away, although he can still be unsure if suddenly grabbed.

Wally is crate trained and sleeps in his crate overnight with no issues. He can be left for a couple of hours, he is normally left in his crate with a chew. He has been known to chew things if left unsupervised, he is a giant puppy at heart and still acts like one despite his size.

He knows his basic commands, although needs further help with his recall and is very keen to learn more, he has shown us he has a brain he just needs to be helped to find it! Wally would thrive in obedience or agility classes.

Despite his previous problems he is a very playful happy boy, and loves to play with other dogs especially our other lurcher!! He absolutely loves playing with our Kennel staff and enjoys a good game of tug. Currently Wally’s favourite thing is to play in the paddling pool or to play with his friend Chester.

Wally is looking for an adult only home with owners experienced of his breed/issues. He would like to be the only pet in the household. Could you offer Wally a loving home?

**BRANDY**

Breed: Springer Spaniel Cross Standard Poodle

Gender: Male

Age: 2

Can live with children: No

Can live with dogs: No but can have calm doggy friends

Can live with cats: no

Extra requirements: needs an experienced home.

Brandy is a 2 year old Sproodle. Unfortunately he is one of the many victims of being a lockdown puppy. Brandy has been poorly socialised and whilst he absolutely loves people out and about he does have a few issues. Brandy loves a cuddle and will throw himself at everyone especially when out on a walk. Unfortunately in the home he is a very different boy! Brandy was brought in due to the fact that he resource guards. This means he will steal items around the house and then try to bite when they are taken off of him. This is something we are working very hard on to fix. Brandy can also become aggressive and bite when he feels threatened. Due to his poor upbringing when he feels threatened Brandy will bite with little warning. This can simple be from someone standing to close to him whilst he is sleeping or trying to stroke him whilst standing over him. Brandy absolutely loves a cuddle but this has to be on his terms whilst he is learning to trust people. He doesn’t like it when people grab him or stand over him so interactions are best when sitting down. Brandy is a very loving boy however does have another side to him. Brandy is looking for an adult only home with no other pets although he could have calm doggy playfriends. He is looking for an owner who has experience with aggression and resource guarding and someone who is happy to continue the training currently in place. Could you offer Brandy a quiet calm experienced home?

Age: 3 1/2

Can live with cats: no

Rosie is a stunning 3 and a half year old Lurcher who is seeking her perfect home!

Rosie has had a hard life and is now seeking a peaceful home where she can relax and be worry free.

Rosie adores people and loves having cuddles, she would make a very good sofa buddy! Rosie could live with children 12 plus who are used to big bouncy dogs, she would love to play and have cuddles but may jump up and knock smaller children over.

Due to Rosie’s past she is looking for a pet free home. Rosie has unfortunately been attacked by dogs in the past, this has made her very worried however with slow introductions she could walk with other dogs.

Rosie has an incredibly high prey drive and has cleared a 6ft fence after rabbits before! Rosie must stay on a lead on a walk unless in an enclosed field. She can be strong on the lead but walks well on a halti or figure of 8.

Rosie is the most sweet and loving girl. She adores humans and loves nothing more than a cuddle, play and long walk. Rosie is an absolute Gem, she just needs someone to see past her troubled past. She does require some further training with dogs however she can walk with other dogs if slowly introduced. New owners must be prepared to continue her socialisation with dogs at her pace with the help of the rescue, however she loves to meet new people and will happily be fussed all day!

This beautiful girl is looking for owners who want to go for nice long walks, who will play with her in the garden but most importantly she is looking for new owners who will love her and give her plenty of attention.

Could you be Rosie’s forever home?

Milo is a 2 year old old thyme bulldog who was returned to us in April after an incident in the home. Milo is now ready to find his forever home.

The good stuff:

Milo is full of life and the world is an exciting place. He absolutely adores people and will jump all over you for attention. He loves to play and he loves to cuddle up on the sofa once all of his energy is out.

Milo loves his walks and exploring the fields and parks, he absolutely loves a sniff. Milo knows some basic commands and walks well on a lead.

Milo is such a wonderful boy who just wants to spend time with his humans. He is still a playful puppy at heart who is fully of energy.

The important stuff:

Due to an incident in his previous home Milo is now on a muzzle order, this means he must be muzzled and on lead when out in public.

Milo also needs a child free home with no regularly visiting children.

Milo is a resource guarder and whilst with careful management this isn’t an issue owners must be aware he has bitten in the past over high value food and toys.

Due to his guarding and poor management of this, Milo has unfortunately bitten a child.

We will happily discuss all of this with any new adopted and will give a detailed background on him including the 2 biting incidents.

That being said Milo is an amazing boy and you can see simply by meeting him how happy and full of life he is.

Could you give Milo is second chance?

Can live with cats: no

Chester is a 2 year old Mali cross lurcher. He has been returned to our care after being to bouncy for his adopters.

Chester is an absolute love bug who is so desperate for attention he can get over excited and be a big mouthy. When given a toy to hold he becomes much less mouthy and is able to get the attention he craves without getting to over excited.

Chester can walk well on a lead bug needs to be reminded of this. He gets very over excited when he sees other dogs or small prey like squirrels and will pull and lunge to get go them. He loves other dogs but gets frustrated when he can’t say hello.

Chester needs a home with owners who have a lot of time to keep him entertained and who want to do lots of walks or activities such as agility.

He is looking for a home that can keep him physically and mentally stimulated and allow him to have the attention he craves. When bored he can become destructive and needs help learning how to settle down.

**SKYE**

Age: 4 years

Breed: Border Collie

Gender: female

Can live with dogs: has never lived with another dog, could possibly live with another collie if properly introduced.

Skye is a stunning Border Collie who has come into our care through no fault of her own. She is 4 years old.

Skye is a little overweight and will need to continue her diet, although she is a lot Slimmer than she was when she arrived!!

Skye is a lovely girl who enjoys human company. She is worried by new people and does need time to warm up to strangers and guests in the home. Skye absolutely loves her walks and being out in the garden.

Whilst Skye loves a tickle this must be taken slowly as she gets worried by to much attention, new owners will need to build up the level of attention they give her.

She is dog friendly and could potentially live with another dog although she hasn’t ever lived with one, however she can get excited on walk and pull towards other dogs. She would prefer a cat free, child free home.

Typically of the border Collie she has shown some want to herd her humans because of this she is looking for an adult only home.
