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.
charlie came into rescue through no fault of his own, he came from an owner whose circumstances had changed. Charlie is 4 years old, he will be 5 in July. Charlie has a slight heart murmur but is not on any medication, he also has a slight dry eye, he did come into with a skin condition but this has now cleared up with the right diet and care, he may also be slightly deaf. He does not mind his nails trimmed or ears cleaned. He does not show any aggression to other dogs in the kennels and does not nip or mouth, but he does have a tendency to jump up. Charlie can pull on the lead but once checked he walks fine, he should be walked on a harness, he can be obsessive with certain toys, he has not been known to chew or to be destructive. Charlie does understand basic commands. Charlie is a happy, playful, boisterous, bouncy boy, but he is also nosey, clever, loving, puppy like, he is a handsome, beautiful big boy. Charlie can also be lazy and just lie and watch the world go by. Charlie is neutered, vaccinated, wormed, chipped, he is lead trained and used to travelling in the car. His current diet is raw with salmon and potato dry food. He has not previously lived with children, cats or dogs. We feel that Charlie needs experienced owners and could possibly go with a smaller dog but that would have to be the right dog.
Jethro came into rescue through no fault of his own, he came ot us from another rescue who were not breed specific, he had been handed in by his owners as their circumstances had changed. He is 4 years old, he came to us with a bad skin condition and swollen dirty ears which has now been treated. with a good diet and medication and has no issues now. Jethro has no problem having his nails trimmed and ears cleaned and has shown no aggression towards other dogs in the kennels. When he sees you he does get excited, he is pleased to see people but does not nip or mouth, he can also pull on the lead initially but then walks fine. He can be obsessed with toys, he has not been destructive and he does understand basic commands. Jethro is a happy, excitable,playful, boisterous bouncy boy who is fast and nosey. A lot of people overlook Jethro as he looks "war torn" due to his previous skin condition. Jethro is neutered, vaccinated, wormed, chipped, he is lead trained and used to travelling in a car. His diet is raw with dried food. We do not know if he has previously lived with cats or dogs although we understand he has previously lived with children. Jethro is not a morning dog, he likes to lie in and get up at his leisure, he would suit an active family who likes to go on long walks, he will take a lot of exercise and loves to be outside.
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.
Rudie Red came into Welfare through no fault of his own, it seems he spent a lot of his time in a crate, Rudie is just over a year old. He has no health issues and is in good condition as he did come in a little underweight.
He is fine with having his nails trimmed and ears cleaned, he has shown no aggression at all towards other dogs. He does get a little over excited and will nip and mouth but this is puppy behaviour. Rudie will pull on the lead but this is a work in progress, he has no obsessions and has not been destructive since he has been with us. He does not understand any basic commands at all but again this is a work in progress.
Rudie is a happy, playful, boisterous, clever, puppy like, clown like and athletic boy who can be vocal but is also very loving.
Rudie has been neutered, vaccinated and wormed, he can travel in a car and is in the process of being lead trained, he has not previously lived with children, cats or dogs and he needs to be house trained. Rudie is in good order but he requires extra work and proper training as nothing has been done with him, he could possibly go with another dog but only with an experienced owner.
