Dogs Under Assessment
15 month old Alfie arrived in foster yesterday. He's a Boston/Shitzu cross. Alfie will be fully assessed and vet checked before being available for rehoming so no enquiries or applications yet please.
One year old Reggie came into the rescue last week due to his aggression. It was felt he would benefit from a spell in the sanctuary. Early days yet so we'll have to see how he gets on.
Dulcie will be looking for a special home. She’s an 18 month old girl with some issues resulting in aggression, and she has bitten several times. She guards her food, her bed and her place on the sofa. Ongoing work and training is needed, and she may never be ‘cured’ but her behaviour could be managed by avoiding triggers and taking advice from behaviourists.
She also needs stability as she’s already been moved around a few times in her short life, including a spell in the sanctuary. The last thing she needs is to be moved on again so we’re looking for a special person to take her on a foster-to-adopt basis. This person must have experience, be willing to listen to and follow advice & guidance from qualified behaviourists (which we will provide) and not give up on her. It is vital that instructions and advice are followed.
The other side of Dulcie is very sweet – she’s very affectionate, likes her cuddles and enjoys playing. She loves her walks and going in the car.
Because of her aggression we won’t rehome her with children, no matter how dog-savvy they are. She gets on with other dogs so we will consider a one-dog household.
