This is Major, Major is 3 1/2 years old and came into Welfare through no fault of his own. Major has been castrated, he is also vaccinated and chipped. He eats well and appears healthy. Although Major was with his litter mates in his previous home there was some friction there so he needs to be homed as an only dog with no cats and Major is not fond of small dogs. He still needs some time spent on him as he was left very much to his own devices at his previous home. He was loved very much and came into Welfare when their owner died suddenly. House training is still ongoing, his lead training has improved and he has shown an improvement with his commands. Major is quite sensitive can be vocal, He has been known to have chewed and he seems to like women over men, he would also get obsessed with a ball if left. Major is a handsome boy, please don't let him spend any more time in kennels, he needs to be rehomed in an experienced home only with no young children.
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.
This is JESS who is just over 2 years old, she came into us after her owner could no longer keep her. She seems in good overall health, she did come in a little overweight but this has been rectified. Jess came into us with no manners at all, she thought everything was a game but now understands the word "No" and is coming on well with work which will need to be carried on by any new owner. She came into us quite a nervous girl who had no boundaries and had not been properly socialised. She loves to be in the company of people We think that she should be an only dog as she has never lived with another dog and has not been socialised with them. Jess is a happy, playful excitable, boisterous, bouncy, athletic girl who is fast, she is also brave, friendly, loving and beautiful, she is also greedy, noisy and wilful. Jess is still a work in progress.
This is JACOB who is 4 years old, he came into us a little underweight and he had a few sores, but he has now put on weight and the sore areas have now cleared up. He has no other health issues. When he first came into us he was scared and a little hand shy. He is now greeting with a bowed head and a slight wag of his tail. He shows no aggression, he is now looking at the dog's around him, he just walks by and will ignore dogs barking at him. Jacob is quiet, timid and a little insecure boy , but he is loving, he loves to be cuddled, he is also soft, shy and he needs love. He is a very handsome boy. He will allow you to trim his nails, Clean his eyes and ears. He walks on a lead and does not pull.
JACOB is not a fussy eater although he is a slow eater, he is not a pig around food and is not food aggressive. He does not destroy or eat his toys but is a little ball obsessive, although he does not play with many toys and he will not bring his ball back when asked. Jacob is still a work in progress, at the moment he does not understand or obey basic commands although we are working with him on this, He is not an over excitable dog and he does not nip or mouth. Jacob needs time and patience to build up his trust and confidence. Jacob would be better with laid back, experienced Bull Terrier people in a quiet home where he is given time and patience, we think in time he will shine but he is not to be rushed. Whatever happened in his life has clearly affected him as he is scared of the hand and sweeping brush. He is clearly responding with us but it must be done at a slow pace, at the moment he is scared of men, although he is just starting to trust our kennel man, he now wags his tail and keeps his ears up, he loves women and is much happier around all females. Jacob is improving all the time and is getting braver and he is starting to trust and gain confidence. He will be a great dog, especially with women, he wants to sit close and touch. He will be a great dog in the right hands. He is vaccinated and chipped, We will neuter him in time but we feel it is more important at the moment for him to become more confident.
