This is Rudy Spot he a a 5 year old boy who has unique markings, a white boy with red brindle patches, he is hard to overlook he has such a sad expression, he came into Welfare through no fault of his own due to a family breakup. Rudi has lived with children but Welfare feel the best and correct home for him now is with with someone who is older or maybe a couple as all he needs now is a quiet life. Rudi is on daily medication which is gabapentin, his dosage has been greatly reduced and managed. A supply of this medication will be made available when he is rehomed, He is on this medication as he has a spinal problem which has been seen by our vet, who has said his condition is not operable but can be managed by medication and the correct exercise, he sometimes changes his gait but it is hard to see as a bad condition as he throws himself about especially first thing in the morning. He is not keen on some big dogs or small dogs that threaten him but will walk them if if no threat is presented. Rudy is spotlessly clean, he has never been known to chew and he does not pull on the lead. He is a very gentle boy. Please only experienced owners to apply who will take advice from Welfare and follow it so as to benefit this boy.
Peggy is about 4 years old, we are not sure of her precise age as she was found wandering the streets. Since coming to us she is chipped, spayed vaccinated and wormed. although she has had a few ear infections since being with us but has no other health concerns. She is a happy, excitable, boisterous also a hyperactive girl that can also be dominant. She does not like her eyes or ears cleaned or her nails trimmed, she does understand basic commands. She is not obsessive with toys or objects, she does not chew or destroy her bedding. She does walk on the lead but also pulls. As we do not know anything about Peggy's background we do know from assessing her while she has been with us she is a very fear aggressive dog who will take years of time, patience and love for her to trust again. Peggy is both food and dog aggressive, she has made some progress since being with us, she now travels in a car and when she has been to the vets she has behaved very well. Peggy does not like cats. She would not be good with a young family due to her nature at the moment and the fact she is boisterous and once she reaches a certain level of excitement she does not listen. Peggy needs very very experienced people who can understand her problems and work with them, it will not be a quick fix, Peggy needs to learn how to trust again and she may never be that perfect dog, she has been damaged and let down by people and she needs very very special people to help her.
Sophie is 12 years old, she is up to date with her vaccinations, wormed and chipped she has also been spayed. Sophie was nervous when she came to us and did not want to come out of her crate, she will need a lot of reassurance initially. Sophie is insecure, nervous but also excitable, she is a little overweight, her eyes teeth and ears are fine but she has poor mobility on her back end due to an operation she had when she was younger. Sophie is initially wary of strangers and will back away from them, she also will bark at strange dogs that enter the kennels, she does not like people or dogs around when she is eating. She also does not like hose pipes. Sophie does like routine, she will not go to toilet in her kennels so she needs to be let outside regularly. Sophie allows you to clean her eyes and ears, she understands basic commands but she can get over excited and mouth/nip. She walks on the lead but also pulls, she is also food aggressive. She does not like her nails trimmed, she is not obsessive with toys or objects, she does not chew her bedding, she does not show any aggression whilst on the lead, she is not fussy about her food, in fact she is a good eater, but does tend to snatch treats. She does not drink lots of water and is not a messy drinker. She does not play with toys and will not fetch a ball. Sophie again needs to be rehomed with people that are experienced with Bull Terriers, It is not known what she is like with children so she should not be rehomed with a family who has young children. Sophie needs lots of time, patience, reassurance and love.
This is Bandit who was born in January 2018, he is vaccinated, wormed and neutered who came into rescue through no fault of his own, he is in excellent condition with no health concerns. When he first arrived with us he was very excitable and couldn't wait to come out of his transport van, he had also travelled up with other dogs. He has now settled into kennels, he is calm. On his visit to the vets he travelled really well in the car and was very good while waiting for the vet. He does look at other dogs but soon just walks on by. Bandit is described as being a happy, cute, excitable, athletic, charming handsome, beautiful boy, who is playful, loving,puppy like, fast who loves to cuddle. He is also friendly, clever, fun loving and outstanding. He will let you clean his eyes and ears and trim his nails. He understands basic commands, he sits,lays down and gives a paw. He is good on the lead although he does pull, neither is he aggressive on the lead. He does not get over excited and nip/mouth, he is not obsessive over toys or objects, he does not chew his kennel or bedding. He is not food aggressive or fussy over his food. He is a good eater, he takes treats nicely and does not snatch and he can be bribed with food. He does not pick up or eat things on walks. He does not drink a lot of water. He does not eat or destroy toys, in fact he does not play with his toys and will not fetch a ball. He cannot be re homed with cats, small furries or chickens. We think if he is introduced properly and if he has a strong experienced Bull Terrier owner he could be homed with a very calm bitch. Bandit is very clean although when he initially came into the house he did mark. Bandit is a very handsome young boy with no issues.

We would describe Bronson as a happy, excitable,playful,boisterous,bouncy boy who is very loving and in turn he loves to cuddle. He is very sharp, fast,friendly and very clever. He is puppy like, clumsy, agile, athletic who is very fun loving despite his deafness. As we stated above he came into us underweight, dominant and confused, he was not lead trained and would attack the lead, he has been worked with and is now fine on his lead now. He picked up house training very quickly and if he is outside and wants to come in he will bark at the door. Bronson is a lovely boy. He will let you clean his eyes and ears, trim his nails, he understands basic commands, he will sit, lay down and give his paw.

He does not drink lots of water and is not messy around his water bowl, He does not destroy or eat his toys, he does play with his toys but will not fetch his ball. He does bark sometimes. As Bronson is deaf he tries very hard to look and learn, he does understand some simple signing. Bronson so wants to please and is a fast learner. He is a very special boy and could in time be rehomed with a special calm bitch. He cannot be homed with cats, small furries or chickens.
URGENT foster/forever home needed. This is Jay who is now 12 years old, he came into rescue through no fault of his own, he was abandon in a flat relying on neighbours to put food through the letter box until the relevant authorities opened the flat. As a result he came into rescue very thin and with muscle wastage on his back legs, he has regained weight and is now weighing in around 32 kg so he is a big boy and quite strong even for his age, he has regained strength in his back legs through gentle regular walking. He is quite a strong boy that still likes to play, he loves human company and lots of cuddles, he walks well on the lead and does not pull. He has been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations and is chipped, he does have a bit of dry eye, his tear tests are 7 and 9 when last tested but he is on medication for this. He is also on vivitonin for his age. He has been good when meeting other dogs outside the home and has sat nicely in the vets surgery when he has visited, however we feel he should be an only dog, as he has not got on with one of the dogs when he has been in the house. We would love for this boy to be in a loving home given his age and the awful experience of being left in a flat on his own. It needs someone special to give his a home as he is an older boy. We will pay for all medication.
