Handsome Max came to us recently with his friend Mara. He is seven years old. Max is an intelligent boy who knows some of his basic commands and is very eager to please and learn especially when
treats are involved. We are recommending that Max be rehomed in an adult only home.
Pretty Mara is eight years old. She’s an affectionate and friendly girl who loves people. Mara has previously lived with children, another husky and cats. She was as good as gold this week when she was examined by our vet, she is happy to be groomed and her previous owner has told us that she is fine when she’s travelling. Because of her size, we are recommending a home for Mara with older children only.
******SPECIAL APPEAL***** Trevor has been with us for some time now and we’d love him to find his new home soon.
Lively Trevor is two years old and a dog with a great personality. He’s full of energy, always on the go and he just loves being with his human friends, especially when he’s allowed to come up to the office and sprawl on the sofa! Trevor is just a big softie; he’s affectionate, loyal and always eager to please. He has previously lived with a youngster and two other dogs, but because of his bounciness, we are recommending a home for him with older children where he will be the only pet.
Our national website rspca.org.uk has more photos of Trevor and a video of him having fun in our exercise area with one of our volunteers. Trevor weighs 24.5 kg Please have a look!
****SPECIAL APPEAL**** Friendly, affectionate and eager to please, five-year-old Rosie is great company and a lovely girl to be around. She is always in a happy mood and enjoys going out for walks and playing with her toys in the exercise area. Rosie will come to you when called and already knows the commands ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘paw’, but she would certainly benefit from some further training where she can continue to work on her basic commands and leadwork, and learn to socialize with other dogs. Rosie has never lived with other pets but she has lived with children over the age of twelve. As she is quite a ‘bouncy’ dog we wouldn’t recommend a home with children younger than that age. She has spent her second Christmas in kennels and doesn’t deserve to have been with us that long.Rosie weighs 23kg.
Sweet and gentle Kassie is two years old. She is an ex farm collie and although she is rather timid at the moment, we know from previous experience that these farm collies usually come out of their shells once they are settled into their new homes and have a steady routine and regular exercise.
Kassie needs to go to a home which already has a dog as she will benefit from having another dog to learn from and give her confidence.
Kassie is a very clever and intelligent dog and needs an experienced, active and patient owner who has the time to spend with her to help her reach her full potential.
We have advised an adult only household for Kassie as we think that a quiet home would be best for her. A household with older children might be considered.
Two-and-a-half year old Jack is looking for his new, forever home. This gentle boy came to us with a nasty skin condition which is now a lot better. We are recommending a home for Jack where he will be the only dog, either in an adult only household or one with older children.
Like any young collie, eighteen-month-old Moss is lively, playful and full of energy. Moss is a very affectionate, intelligent dog who now needs an experienced, active owner who will help him reach his full potential with firm, but kind handling. Moss already knows some of his basic commands and is very eager to please and willing to learn. He’s definitely a dog who needs to ‘work’ and would be ideal for agility training or flyball once he’s settled into his new home. Through no fault of his own, Moss has already had several homes in his young life so his next home really must be forever. With a stable home environment and a regular exercise and training regime, this lovely young dog will surely thrive. We think that it would be best for Moss if he were the only pet in the home.
Bea is a lovely friendly girl. She has had some training, but will need to continue with that in her new home. She has lived with young adults, Guinea Pigs and another larger dog. She was previously house trained. Has travelled in cars before using a seat belt. We think she will make a great pet in a range of different homes. She still has a lot of the playful puppy in her and will be great fun to watch her grow and mature into the fine dog she can become.
We are looking for a home for Winnie with a terrier-experienced owner where she will definitely need to be the only pet. Winnie would be great in a family environment but we think she’d be best suited to a home with older children only. Winnie has been so badly mistreated in her previous life. She’s such a great little character and she now deserves a very special home. We’d love Winnie to go to her new home this Christmas but she has to have an operation to rebuild her jaw. We can’t show you all her injuries as they are too horrible. ** Winnie had her operation on 10 December and
is now back in kennels waiting for a new home or foster home **
