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.
Kia came into Welfare through a dog warden she was found as a stray, Kia is 10 years old and it is very sad to see this old lady in rescue, we would love to see her in a home in her twilight years. She has no health issues now although she came in with swollen/dirty ears, long nails and swollen hocks but these are not a problem now. She was also underweight but has now put on weight. We think she may be partly deaf. She is a small bull terrier could possibly pass as a miniature
Kia is not good around small dogs and is not good with cats.
She is fine having her nails trimmed and her ears cleaned, she does not show aggression to the dogs in the kennels but she will push boundaries, when she first came into Welfare she was a little excitable and was prone to nipping but again she is fine now, she does not pull on her lead, she cannot be given balls to play with as she is ball obsessive, she does not chew or destroy her bedding. Kia understands basic commands, she is very good, she wants to please and know her place.
Kia is happy, excitable, playful, boisterous, bouncy, clever, agile, clown like, she can be a little vocal, she will tell you when she has had enough, she is also a very loving girl although she looks a little “raggy” due to her age. She can also be dominant if you are not firm with her.
Kia has been spayed, her vaccinations and worming are up to date, she is lead trained and can travel in a car. Her diet is raw with salmon and potato dry, We don’t know if she has lived with children. She needs a firm fair experienced owner and needs to be an only dog as she will need to adjust to her owners.
Tommy is a big handsome boy, he has come into rescue through no fault of his own, he came into rescue through his owner who was no longer in a position to look after him. Tommy is 7 years old approx.. Tommy has no health issues apart from him being partially deaf, he also has a wall eye which causes him no problems. He does not mind having his nails trimmed or ears cleaned.

He is a happy, playful, boisterous boy, but is also cuddly and calm, he is a big dog and very handsome.
Tommy has been neutered, he is up to date with his vaccinations and worming, he is also lead trained and can travel in a car. His current diet his raw food with salmon and potato dry. He has not previously lived with children, cats or dogs.
We feel that Tommy should be an only dog and not be homed with small children or cats. He must have owners experienced with the breed, he does need work and firm, fair handling.
