Sally

Sally needs a home !!

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.

Rhian needs a home !!

Rhian is a very energetic and bouncy girl, she wants to say hello to everyone and play with every dog.
She will need plenty of opportunity for a good run and learn to remain calm when greeting others.

Rhian arrived on Monday from the dog pound.

She is around a couple of years old. Really nice girl in good condition for a change with the softest coat. Straight away she was up for a game with Sue’s dogs where she is fostering, usual speedy up and downs the gardens that Lurchers like to do. Quite unsure of walking on the tiled floor to start with but getting used to that now.

Buddy needs a home !!

Buddy is a young Lurcher who is nearly a year old.
He can be nervous of people to start with but is coming on well (we think he may have been hit previously).
He loves a one to one when he is very affectionate. Buddy has a very strong prey drive and he will chase anything that moves quickly.
Buddy needs input and socializing – he will then be a loyal and loving friend.

Sam

Sam needs a home !!

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 “

Mabel & Lucy

Mabel & Lucy need a home together !!

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.

Tilly

Updated October 2, 2021 Categories: DAWGDOGS NEEDING A HOME !!, dogs, progress updates, successfully rehomed.

Tilly has now found a home !!

Tilly is a 13 year old wire/long haired Jack Russell who we took on back in August as her owner is at end of life.
She is a sweet girl who is on the look out for food all the time as she’s on a weight loss plan now as a bit round.
Her hearing is selective and has a slight sight problem due to age, but hears when the treat box opens.
She loves her walks but doesn’t like to go too far. We walk her on an extendable lead, but she over does it at the beginning as she thinks she’s still a pup.
She gets on well with my 2 boys, but they are very laid back labradoodles, but hates any dog that gets in her face especially bitches, so I would say she would do best on her own or with a dog that is not confrontational.
She is getting used to petting and doesn’t attempt to get on furniture, laps or climb the stairs.
She leaps out the door now at toilet times, so she is getting lighter.
She is upto date with vaccinations last one August 12th and worming September.
She is microchipped.
We would love to find her a lovely home to live out the rest of her life.

Cara has now found a home !!

Cara is about 2yrs old, she arrived very dirty and sore but after 2 baths, a trip to the vet and some tlc is settling well.
She is a gentle girl who loves a cuddle.
She gets on well with other dogs and enjoys a good run with them but is also happy having a quiet sniff.

Evie

Evie has now found a home !!

Evie is 7 months old and a Lurcher.
She has arrived into the Rescue and settled in her foster home with Jasper and his people.
On arrival she raced around their garden having stolen Jasper’s toys to play with.
He wasn’t that bothered and watched with some resignation that she was not going to give him much peace…

Heidi

Updated September 4, 2021 Categories: dogs, progress updates, successfully rehomed.

Heidi has now found a home !!

Heidi [ GSDx ] has arrived.
A gentle soul who has clearly been socialised with other dogs.
She met Missy first who was quite grumpy and no reaction from her apart from to sensibly back off.
Next she met Pippin who likes to strut his stuff to begin with when meeting new dogs.
Within a 5 mins they were chasing each other up and down the garden.
She does startle easily from a sudden noise accompanied by a human movement which tells me maybe she has been smacked.
She will soon get over this. A really lovely girl and youngish.
Not going to inspect her teeth yet to determine her age as she has enough new experiences on her first day to cope with.
Considering she has only been with us for a couple of hours she is so far taking it all in her stride
