Barney needs a home !!

Barney is 10 months old and needing a home.
He has been in two homes so far that we know of via the internet since being sold by the breeder and coming into the Rescue.
Barney is a very friendly dog and gets on well with other dogs.
He always spends lunchtime with the girls at the kennel he is boarding in. They all love him there and no doubt he pays particular attention to what flavour sandwiches are being unwrapped at lunchtime….

Barney needs a high fence as he has been practising his Commando skills climbing the ones in his previous home.

If you may be able to offer a home

please call Helen on 01202 380467

Phone calls & messages are usually only taken during office hours Mon – Sat.

Emails and Facebook messages can usually only be responded to within 3 days,

so please be patient if you don’t get an answer straight away:

Helen is often too busy to explain how busy she is!

We usually only rehome within approx. 50 miles of the Bournemouth / Poole area
so that we can ensure the continued well-being of the dogs in our care.
We will only rehome further afield if the homes are exceptional.
We are NOT looking for just ANY home that is offered.
All potential homes will be assessed to try and ensure the best possible home
to cater for the differing needs of each individual dog that we rescue

Thank you all !!

Sonny has now found a home !!

progress update: 4/5/21

Sonny has had no problems settling without Hamish.
He is progressing steadily and is now coming close for cuddles, and we are getting a few tail wags.
He is beginning to warm to regular visitors, taking treats from them.
We went to the beach where he was not sure about the waves but was happy to sit in beach hut and watch people passing by.
He enjoys his walks and interaction with other dogs, although is still wary of people close by.

Sonny is very nervous in all situations, he is just beginning to take treats from our hands but is very easily spooked.
He is very nervous out walking but relaxes in quiet areas and enjoys a sniff about.
He occasionally tries to play with the others but mostly just watches.
He enjoys a good run in the back garden and returns to the house if he is unsure of anything.

Sonny arrived to us last Saturday.
He was in a dog pound and his time was up..
Sonny is around a year old and has not been treated well at all.
He will need someone who is patient with him and to build his confidence.

Hamish has now found a home !!

Hamish is confident and playful at home with lots of energy. He is very nosey out and about and enjoys a good sniff, but is a little wary in busy situations.

He is mainly clean in the house but does still have the odd accident.

He does not appear to know any basic commands but will come to a whistle and the offer of food.

Hamish is six months old and still a puppy.

He is friendly and quite confident but will need a home with time to train him.

He is coming along well in his foster home.
