** BOBBY **

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 (collie, greyhound, husky mix)

Gender: Male

Age: 17 months

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 17 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. He does have a bite history through redirection and resource guarding, because of this he is looking for an adult only pet free home. 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.

Wally wants to be involved in everything and anything, he is very inquisitive. He likes attention and can get very overexcited when having it. He does like to curl up on his bed and be near his humans.

Wally has become much better on a walk and although we still advise a muzzle outside he is proving time and time again with a little direction from his handler he can walk nicely and can walk passed other dogs without becoming wound up.

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 led away. 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 react if being 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 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.

Whilst Wally does have a good recall when in a secure field, he has not been let off lead outside of a secure field. He will need to stay on a long line as he gets distracted by other people/dogs. However with continued training his recall will only get better!!!

Wally has enjoyed various sports whilst in our care and particularly enjoyed agility and canicross.

Despite his 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?

** CHESTER **

Breed: Malinios Cross Lurcher

Gender: Male

Age: just under 2

Can live with children: 16+

Can live with dogs: No but can have dog friends if introduced properly

Can live with cats: no

Extra requirements: needs someone at home most of the time

Chester is a stunning 20 month old Mali Cross Lurcher who came in to our care through no fault of his own. Unfortunately although Chester was a much loved pet he does lack basic training and some manners. Chester absolutely adores people and would happily spend all day around his humans. He will sit on your feet for a tickle and even ask for a belly rub! Chester is very clever and needs something to keep his brain busy, when bored he can become destructive. Chester is a bouncy lad who does still jump up at people when first meeting them, when is gets to overexcited he does still on occasion mouth although this has gotten better. He walks well on a slip lead and harness although does need reminding every now and then to walk nicely. Chester is a big bouncy lad who very much behaves like a puppy. He needs owners who have experience and can continue his ongoing training. Chester has known to steal things around the house and be destructive and needs an owner who can redirect his naughtiness into more sensible play. Chester enjoys playing with other dogs if introduced correctly. Due to his mouthing and hyperness he is looking for an adult only home with someone around most of the time to continue his training. Chester is looking for a lurcher friendly home who understand that in his head he is still a giant puppy. He needs owners who are willing to put the work in as he has the potential to be an amazing family pet he just needs the training. He is learning to be calm and can often be found in his bed chewing his antler. He needs an active home with someone who can not only give him lots of walks but can also keep his brain active. Do you have a Chester shaped hole in your life?

**SHADOW**

Breed: Sharpei cross Boxer

Gender: Male

Age: 2

Can live with children: No

Can live with dogs: No

Can live with cats: no

Extra requirements: needs an experienced home.

Handsome Shadow is yet another victim of being a lockdown puppy. This beautiful lad is now ready to find his new start.

Shadow is an amazing boy who absolutely loves to play and have cuddles with people he trusts. Shadow is a typical boxer mix with boundless energy and the desire to play all day.

Shadow loves being out and about, playing in the garden and having long walks.

Due to being undersocilised shadow is wary of strangers and takes time to get to know people. Shadow can also be territorial but in Foster has improved hugely.

Here’s what Shadow’s fosterers say about him:

He is doing so well, He loves to play with my (adult) son and his friend. He has been great with people coming to the house, a little nervous at first but absolutely fine after a few minutes. He’s eating but is certainly not motivated by food or treats, makes a change!! He does love his toys and will play all day, but will settle quickly when you want him to. He responds well to his name and will come back when called. He is reactivate to other dogs on walks but fine with people. He does get excited and jump up and mouth when playing but this is improving. Just a really lovely affectionate, fun dog who just needs literally a few days to settle in, and then you couldn’t find a better pet.

Shadow is dog reactive but has made dog friends with slow introductions. This is an issue that with further training could absolutely be resolved.

Shadow is looking for a child free pet free home. He would prefer a more rural home away from busy roads and the hustle and bustle of town life.

Do you have a Shadow shaped hole in your 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?
