Mabel still needs a home !!

Lucy has now found a home !!

progress update: 24/11/2021

We now feel it best that Mabel & Lucy are not rehomed together, so Lucy now has a home, Mabel is still looking for one

progress update: 02/11/2021

Both girls are now nearly clean in the house with just the occasional accident.
They have not been off the lead yet but will be let off in an enclosed area to see how their recall is.
At the moment they are enjoying long walks with Barry, Greta and Lianne.
Getting on well with the other dogs here.
They are still into everything but that is just their characters and Lucy being young is full of of curiousity.
They will need a secure garden as find any little gap to wriggle through or jump onto the bin to let themselves back into my part of the garden if I have left them out to do their business.

progress update: 27/10/2021

These lovely girls have been with us three weeks now and really settled in.
They are full on into everything, tails constantly wagging and full of mischief.
They will need someone who is patient with them as not quite housetrained yet and they do like to investigate the kitchen counters if they can get up onto them.
They are getting on well with the other dogs at the Rescue and loving their long walks to the beach with Barry.

progress update: 10/10/2021

Mabel and Lucy have settled in well and been going out for long walks with Barry. Once around the corner and away from me Mabel walks on without looking back. They are really nice girls with tails constantly wagging.tails. Now nearly clean in the house as long as I notice when they want to go out and let them out regularly. Quiet at night now and settle down for the night easily. Lucy is interested in the sea on her walks with Barry but Mabel is clearly saying to him “No thanks I will give that a miss “.



Arrived today and we are looking for a home for them together.

Mabel is the Mum we believe, and around four to five years old. Lucy 7 months to a year or so.
They both get on really well with other dogs and have been very patient with Sam who likes to play ALL the time.
Still settling in as their first day with us and we will update as we get to know them better.

Leo

Updated November 2, 2021 Categories: DAWGDOGS NEEDING A HOME !!, dogs, progress updates.

Leo needs a home !!

progress update: 02/11/2021

Leo has settled in extremely well into his foster home.
On being told by Dianne his foster Mum of the tasty meals she cooks him up for breakfast, lunch and dinner I thought I may move in myself.
Leo walks well on the lead and his table manners are much improved though I am sure will still take a little peep to see the culinary delight being prepared for him on the counter.
He loves to be outside with Johnny in the garden while he doing jobs.
Clean in the house too which is always a bonus.
He sleeps in a crate at night on a pile of cosy fleece blankets and settles down for a sleep.

Leo arrived today and is settling into his foster home.
He is getting on well with Jasper their dog and had no qualms about pinching Jasper’s spot on the sofa.
Jasper didn’t seem to mind.
We will post more reports about his progress when he has had a few days to get his paws under the table

Sam

Sam needs a home !!

progress update: 02/11/2021

Sam is coming on well with me but has a long way to go yet. Today we tried walking him with Lianne with me taking the lead at the times when I knew he would need me to.
He did very well in the park with Lianne and with me out of sight, until he met a group of people with their dogs.
He is fearful of some men particularly those in dark clothes, and there were two very nice chaps walking their dogs in this group who were wearing black.
All too much for him and I spent time sitting with him and persuading him to walk on.
Once we got going again after a little while I gave the lead to Lianne again and he calmed down.
He looks for me all the time for reassurance and is reluctant when he knows I am not close by.
I can almost give him a proper hug now without him flinching at his neck area being touched.
One big step forward is that he let Lianne put his lead on.
This doesn’t sound much but it is where Sam is concerned.

progress update: 10/10/2021

It was D Day on Sunday when Sarah and I managed to get both a collar and harness on Sam. He had a couple of days getting used to the feel of it and today went out for his first walk. After a few minutes of chewing at the leads, he quickly found the dog news on the verges and lamp posts of far more interest. Did not react to the cars, a jogger or people walking past. We walked to the Rec and friendly and interested in all the dogs he met. Soon he was pulling on ahead in his excitement at all the new smells . No reaction at all as we walked past the men working on improvements at the Rec or the digger dragging it’s bucket across the pathway. I stood near the main road to see how well he would just wait and for 10 mins he waited patiently. We met a lady and her Chihuahua who greeted calmly . He was a little weary of the lady holding out her hand with a treat but previously to that he gently touched her hand with his nose.

So pleased with him. In the weeks he has been here he has grown in confidence with new people and just loves the dogs that have come and gone to new homes.

So, you have never had a dog, live in a flat with no garden and think it a good idea to have one. Which dog would be the most suitable ?? Oh, of course a very young working Collie from a Welsh farmer !!!
This is how Sam came to live in our area with a couple who then put him in a garage with no windows when they found him too much too handle…….. No wonder he was too much for them having come from a farm where more likely tethered as no interest in herding. Then finding himself in a town with noise, traffic, inside a house with a TV blaring etc etc and terrified of a being on a lead.

Luckily for Sam he was handed over and is now with me. After two days he would let me stroke him but not take the lead off, which he had on for a week, until unclipped from his collar. I still can’t put another lead on him but that will come in time. He is a lovely dog who just needs time and a Collie experienced home. He and Heidi got on straight away and Sam was so pleased to have dog company. She chewed his collar during their rough, young dog play and today I will try to get both a collar and lead on him. I understand why he doesn’t like the feel of it knowing that like other dogs in the past who were tied up or treated roughly he is frightened. He will come on in time and be a confident dog who likes walks . He is very loving and pleased to see the people he has become used to. It only takes a couple of days and he is jumping up to say “Hello “

Sally

Updated Categories: dogs, progress updates, successfully rehomed.

Sally has now found a home !!

progress update: 02/11/2021

Sally is lovely.
She has been clobbered in the past and is still fearful of quick movements and will cower down or scoot outside out of the way.
She does like to chew things and I suspect this has got her into trouble in her past life.
She has plenty of activity toys to keep her attention focussed on them and has chews.
At the moment she is thoroughly enjoying a large bone and happy to be in the same space as Sam who also has one.

Several times a week she goes for long walks with Sarah and Tom who love her and she can’t wait for her harness to be put on so she can get going.
She also will be going to a large enclosed area once her stitches are out to blast her energy off, as up to now she has stayed safely on the lead.
She was neutured last week and has a week to go before she can do this.
She needs someone patient to help her gain confidence and it will take some time.

progress update: 27/10/2021

 

Sally had her first walk at the park today.
She doesn’t pull on the lead and walks quite nicely.
At the park I met three dog walkers I know who had a gang of dogs with them, she was submissive to them all at first with tail between her legs.
Within 5 mins tail was coming up and she was starting to greet them.
Very patient with one of them that was a bit keen on her.
Not bothered by cars at all.
She is very sweet.

Sally arrived on Monday.
She is a good old mixture of all sorts with a touch of Beagle in her. Most rescue dogs are to be honest even though everyone says cross this or that. Nothing wrong with a good of mixture of dogs and actually usually healthier. May even stand outside Parliament with a placard saying ” Stand up for the recognition of Mutts”.

Sally took to Sam straight away and was racing up and down with him.
She is a little thin and was nervous of coming in past me through the door.
She has got over this and comes when I call her in.
Sally is around four years old and a really sweet girl.

Nero

Updated October 30, 2021 Categories: dogs, successfully rehomed.

Rehomed

progress update: 31/10/2021

 

progress update: 30/04/2020

Nero settled into our foster home very quickly at just 4 months of age.
He has a very calm, sweet, gentle and polite nature.
Nero is a typical Border Collie, which includes the lovely temperament and is very intelligent.
In just a few weeks he has been a great foster pup who enjoys us all, including our young children. He loves to play with his toys and is also happy to play in his own company and especially loves the garden.
He will thrive with some further training and already knows a few basic words. He is almost toilet trained, so after every meal and drink we still have to put him outside and inevitably he will wee. He still occasionally has a little wee accident, but never a poo!
He loves his walks and is getting quite strong on the lead now. He is typically very interested in everything out and about, especially a fascination with wheels, meeting other dogs and wanting to join in with play. He has the tendency to always want to chase and so is very curious and slightly nervous with noisy cars going by when being walked along the pavement.
He is very sociable, but hasn’t been able to meet too many other dogs on leads during this social distancing time!
He has therefore never been left, so has enjoyed our full time attention, but more recently has found his voice and will bark sometimes if ignored, even though he can see and hear us in the other room, so not far away! He is also quite content in curling up on his own to have a nap!
Nero is used to our routine during the day and sleeps well in his crate during the night, but let’s us know it’s time to get up from about 6.30 every morning!
Nero will thrive on lots of company, stimulation, further training and exercise.
A very special pup :-)

Nero was one of four Collie puppies that arrived just before lockdown.
