Buddy is a very handsome boy he is just over2 years old and in excellent health. He came into rescue through no fault of his own, he was born oversea and brought into this country but his owner was no longer in a position to look after him. As you can see he has a floppy ear which gives him character. .He has not been used to having his nails clipped or ears cleaned so has to be muzzled for this. He has not shown any aggression towards other dogs in kennels, he can be a little mouthy when he gets over excited and will occasionally pull on the lead initially but once into the walk he calms down. He is described as happy, playful, bouncy, fast, friendly and an agile boy who is nosey and clown like he can also on occasions be a little vocal, he can be obsessive with some toys and he understands basic commands. Buddy has been neutered, vaccinated, wormed and chipped, he is lead trained. His current diet is raw and salmon and potato dry. He has not previously lived with children or cats but he has lived with dogs. We feel that Buddy could possibly be rehomed with a calm dog, he seems to respond to dogs rather than people and he could become a dominant dog if allowed. Buddy needs to be rehomed to someone who is very experienced with the breed.

However, as they were together at their previous home there was some friction , although Paddy will tolerate smaller dogs when out we feel that he should be rehomed as an only dog and no cats. Paddy still needs time spending on him as when in their previous home he was left to his own devices. However he was much loved by his previous owner and came to us after his owner died suddenly. Some house training is still ongoing and his lead training has improved, he has also showed improvements with his commands. Paddy is a big handsome boy who is very loving and will make someone who can give him time a great mate. Although he will chew if left a long time on his own.

This is Mia a stunning looking 5 year old white girl with head markings that has come back into Welfare after finding a fox cub on her territory that she felt should not be there, so no cats and no small furries. Mia lived with her brother who was rehomed before she came into Welfare. Mia is on meds for a little bladder leakage and she will be rehomed with a good supply of these meds which she is happy to take. Mia is a very loving girl, she also sits, stays, waits and is gentle when taking food from your hand. Mia is spayed vaccinated and chipped.
This is Amy, she is 6 years old, she is chipped, vaccinated and spayed. Amy is very clean in the house. When walking she tends to pull on the lead but we are working with her on this. Since she has been in Welfare she has not shown any aggression towards other dogs. we were told when she arrived that she had lived with another dog, however she can be quite an excitable girl therefore we feel that she would be better as an only dog. She is a very loving girl but when she is in the house she can be a little over the top running over the furniture although this is being worked on. Amy loves food, therefore is very food focused so training is being done on a reward basis. Amy is also nosey and can sometimes be vocal for attention. She travels well in the car and will let people handle her, letting them look in her ears and at her teeth etc. She looks to be in good condition and has no skin issues.
This is Flo a lovely sweet, gentle and obedient girl an all in one small packet, Flo is spayed, vaccinated and chipped, she is great in the car and quiet in the home, she does not pull on the lead and she is easy to handle. Flo was living with a family with children of different ages and came into Welfare due to domestic problems. Flo is almost 7 years old now, she is grey in the face but young in her heart. She appears healthy. Welfare feels that the best home for Flo is either with a family or couple she could even go with an older couple or person but no cats or other dogs, she wants and needs a family to herself. This darling girl has been overlooked maybe because of her age but she has much to give and hopefully will give years of pleasure.
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.
