REGGIE

Reggie is an extremely handsome, friendly, loving boy aged 2 ½. He was surrendered because of his toy possession/aggression but his fosterers, with the help of a behaviourist, have helped him to mainly overcome this behaviour. Having said that he can be unpredictable where toys are involved but all information regarding his behaviour and how to handle him will of course be passed on by his fosterers and behaviourist.

We’re not sure if he could live with a cat, but he can live with children. Because he has shown aggression in the past we won’t rehome him with children under the age of 12. We feel he would benefit from living with another dog, particularly to help him with his separation anxiety, which has improved a lot since being in foster but is still a work in progress.

His recall needs work as he’s easily distracted, but Reggie walks well on a lead, travels well in a car and is quiet and clean in the house. He loves to play, and likes to be with his humans as much as possible.

Reggie is being fostered in Pulborough, West Sussex, so adopters need to travel there to meet him, let the dogs meet, and in time collect him. The adoption fee is £350.

THOR

Thor is a 9 month old neutered boy who came into rescue as his owners and other resident dog couldn’t cope with his food & toy possession & aggression.
Thor is a very anxious boy, which can translate into aggression. He is fearful of traffic so has to be kept on a lead otherwise he’ll try to lunge at cars. Whilst in a car he has to be crated. He doesn’t know how to get his point across sometimes so may well nip – he’s not overly aggressive, he just doesn’t know how to respond. He’s very excitable and gets overwhelmed easily. He has made good progress in foster but he's still a work in progress.
On a positive note he’s clean and quiet indoors, non-destructive and playful. He’s generally adorable and cuddly and sleeps well in his crate. He has a lot of energy as you’d expect from a pup so needs lots of exercise and stimulating toys, food puzzles etc.
Thor is not going to be an easy dog, and even with behaviourist reports which will be passed on along with information from his fosterers he’s going to be hard work. He needs a quiet home ideally not near traffic, with no young children. He’s unpredictable with other dogs so we can’t say for sure if he could be homed with another one – now that he’s been neutered he might be fine but we’d insist on meet & greets before agreeing to adoption. Perhaps a well behaved female dog could teach him how to behave! 😊
Thor is being fostered in new Malden, Surrey and his adoption fee is £400.
