Pongo is a 8 month old English Bull Terrier x Beagle. He is a friendly social boy who was found as a stray so we have limited history for him. He loves people and other dogs, he is medium sized and quite chunky. Pongo is only a baby and has missed out on crucial early socialization so will need owners willing to put the effort in and teach him the basics like walking, basic obedience, manners etc. However he is exceptionally bright and smart and enjoys learning new things. Pongo is very social with dogs and enjoys their company. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a homecheck and adoption fee. He will also come with 4 weeks free insurance and a voucher for a box of free food. Better pictures of Pongo to follow.
So, everyone knows I have a passion for senior dogs. So much so that I constantly take them on from pounds/kill shelters and then spend ridiculous amounts of money vetting them and getting them up to health for you lovely people to adopt. I try to limit myself to one a month because they are so goddamn perfect that’s it’s ludicrously easy for me to turn round a keep them because “oh nobody wants to adopt them anyway.” 😂 This one is no different! But I have to be honest with myself; there’s a long list of oldies waiting to come in and this boy here, he’s so perfect I can’t see why someone wouldn’t want to adopt him. So here goes..
This is Gomez. He is a 14 year old Daschund x Jack Russell Terrier. He’s quite a vibrant little chap and to be honest you’d never even know he was 14. He was dumped at the pound by his old owners as he was “no longer of use to them.” I have a right soft spot for low to the ground funny senior dogs so me and Gomez hit it off right away. He’s affectionate and confident, he loves to go for walks and is funny and vocal when he’s super excited. He gets on with absolutely everyone he meets. Big dogs, small dogs, cats and people. He loves his sofa and would love to sleep on his sofa all day alongside a human of his own to give him belly rubs. He is housebroken and sleeps quietly in his bed all night. He really would be wonderful companionship for a retired person. Gomez is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and subject to a homecheck and reduced adoption fee.
Thistle is a 6 year old Cocker spaniel x collie who came into rescue alongside his Mum and his sister after they were taken out of a kennel facility where they have spent their whole lives. Thistle and his sister Fleur were born there and have never known life outside of those bars, so not surprisingly he’s finding everything a little overwhelming right now. Thistle is a sweet guy who can be a little shy but is generally very social with people. He has taken to life in the house very well and enjoys his home comforts like his bed. He will require further work in his new home with his housebreaking but is getting better every day. Thistle has not let started walking outside of the house on the lead as it’s all a bit new but we have started garden walking so this will also require further work. Thistle is good with other dogs but can be a bit grumbly when he’s unsure, this doesn’t manifest in any aggressive behaviors and is very easily corrected. Thistle has shown no interest in the resident cats whilst in foster so could live with a dog savvy cat.
Lack of early crucial nutrition in his life has caused him to develop knuckling in his front legs. This does not affect his mobility or cause him pain but does cause him to stand very square. Our vets have confirmed this will require no further treatment, is unlikely to cause him problems in the future but can make him look a bit strange at times. They have said there may be a chance on a good diet that it could improve.
Thistle is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a homecheck and adoption fee. He will also come with 4 weeks free insurance and a voucher for a box of free food.
Fleur is a 6 year old Cocker spaniel x collie who came into rescue alongside her Mum and her brother after they were taken out of a kennel facility where they have spent their whole lives. Fleur and her brother Thistle were born there and have never known life outside of those bars, so not surprisingly she’s finding everything a little overwhelming right now. Fleur is very sweet natured, calm and quiet. She has been over shadowed by her Mum and her brother who were much more dominant characters so is a shy fragile little girl who needs owners who will teach her all about life and help her build her own confidence. She is good with dogs and would benefit living with another one to show her the way. She doesn’t understand boundaries with food as her and the other dogs have shared all their food so will need to be fed separate from other dogs Incase she gets herself bitten. She is not food aggressive at all and can’t fathom why nobody wants to share with her. She is also non reactive to cats.
Fleur is deceptively tiny, not much bigger than a JRT. Our vet affectionately says “she’s been shrunk in the wash.” She is very friendly with people but can be a little shy at first.
Fleur is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a homecheck and adoption fee. She will also come with 4 weeks free insurance and a voucher for a box of free food.
Spooky is a 6 year old small sized female schipperke mix. She has spent her whole life in kennels and as a result is a very shut down little lady. Spooky is quite food motivated and will approach people for food but otherwise is generally disinterested in them currently. She is not aggressive or fearful with people but has never had any positive interactions with them so does not seek out attention or try to engage with them because she has no reason to. At present she is an aloof independent dog; very cat like in her mannerisms. Spooky is clean and quiet in the house, she is enjoying her home comforts and now that she has learnt about living in a house she doesn’t want to go outside in the rain ever again. 😂
She doesn’t seem overly bothered by other dogs, she’s generally very disinterested in them also. Spooky is a complex little lady who will have a lot to offer someone if they can spend the time reconditioning her and teaching her what a new life outside of bars has to offer.
She is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a homecheck and adoption fee. She will also come with 4 weeks free insurance and a voucher for a box of free food.
Rodney is a 2 year old half collie sausage half surprise. Even our vets are a little bit stumped about this handsome chaps genetic makeup.. he is the very best of a Heinz 57. He is very long with short little legs and is small to medium in size. Rodney loves people and is incredibly social; he particularly like children and would love some little people to call his own. He was found as a stray by a school and spent a great portion of his time convincing children to feed him their lunches. 😂He is also brilliant with dogs and would love a canine companion to play with. Rodney is very bright and food motivated, he learns new things quickly with ease. He has not shown any problems at all whilst in foster but has stolen a lot of hearts wherever he goes. Be prepared to be won over by this gorgeous boy and his wonderful character. He is a complete clown and you can’t help but smile when you look at him.
Rodney is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a homecheck and adoption donation. He will also come with 4 weeks free insurance and a voucher for a box of free food.
Gorgeous Lexi is a 6 month old medium sized crossbreed. We believe some German Shepherd in there however she isn’t very large and our vets do not think she’s likely to get much bigger. Lexi was picked up as a stray very underweight digging through rubbish trying to find something to eat. She was incredibly frightened but has come on leaps and bounds and now really enjoys having a fuss and generally being in a home with people. Lexi is a very typical puppy and will need all the basic puppy training. She’s very sweet and playful and is doing well with her house training. She sleeps quietly in her crate all night and is bright and learning lots of new things. Her new owners must be willing to continue her training to help her grow into a well rounded dog. She loves other dogs and I really feel she would benefit from a canine companion. Lexi is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a homecheck and adoption donation. She will also come with 4 weeks free insurance and a voucher for a box of free food.
