    25 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. Being fostered in Suffolk.

    She has been very loved in her adoptive home, but circumstances have changed for her Adopter, and we have brought her back into foster to rehome. This is very sad for all concerned and particularly for Grace, who was very happy in her family. She is older child friendly, and other dog friendly when she gets to know them, having accepted several fosters into the home over the last few years. She just wants some love, walks and quiet life.

    She can live with another dog, probably a male is best, but she was living with one female lurcher happily before coming in. WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR A REMOTE HOME WHERE SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE WALKED WHERE OTHER OFF LEAD DOGS WOULD RUN TO HER AND A HOME WITH PREFERABLY ONLY FEMALES IN THE HOME. She is terrified of new men in her life and would take several months to get to know any male in the home. Her Rescue forum thread now goes into several page, and she has been with her foster mum over a year - There are some lovely photos and video.

    We do not rehome dogs under the age of 2 to anyone who works away from the home for more than 4 hours. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Hertfordshire, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

  • ******DOG OF THE MONTH***** JEMIMA. WHIPPET X (**ALMOST BLIND**) SHE NEEDS A SPECIAL HOME..... (NOT CAT FRIENDLY)

    Click here to read this dog's discussion thread

    8 years 23 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY FOSTERED IN HAMPSHIRE.

    This beautiful girlie was handed into the Rescue. The family no longer wanted her. Jemima is all but blind.

    She is currently living with one male Greyhound and one Lurcher bitch and a small terrier. But this is not ideal for Jemima. She needs a one to one with someone. Perhaps someone who is house-bound with a VERY large garden. She would be very happy to potter around the garden. Jemima is very happy in the company of humans and dogs she knows, but gets terrified of other dogs in the big world.

    We are probably looking for a home as an only dog, although she did live with one other female before coming in. Jemima is neutered and vaccinations up to date.

    We have a strict rehoming criteria. We do not rehome dogs to anyone who would have to leave them more than four hours in any one day. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not normally rehome further than 200 miles from base in Hertfordshire, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY FOSTERED IN HAMPSHIRE

    Amazingly, this gorgeous lovable hunk was found abandoned. He served his 7 days and passed to another mixed Rescue who asked us to take him on.

    He is currently living with one female and two male Lurchers. He is a happy chappie. He doesn't have a bad bone in his body. Has met several dogs out and about and loves children, as you can see. He just wants to love and be loved.

    Ollie was neutered last week and has started vaccinations. He is ready for rehoming.. This boy has no baggage. But he WILL DEFINITELY be happier with another dog in his pack.

    We have a strict rehoming criteria. We do not rehome dogs under the age of 2 to anyone who works away from the home, so home work based or a homemaker are good. Ollie could be left 4 hours a day as long as he has other dogs with him for company. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not normally rehome further than 200 miles from base in Hertfordshire, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    Very sadly, due to personal circumstances Lenny's owner has had to ask us to take him on for rehoming. He was being left home alone and it was felt that at just one, it was so unfair to him..

    He is currently living with one male and two female Lurcher. He is a lovable kissy boy.. He doesn't have a bad bone in his body. Has met several dogs out and about and loves everyone. He just wants to love and be loved.

    Lenny is neutered and vaccinated and ready for his new home. This boy has no baggage. But he WILL DEFINITELY be happier with another dog in his pack or someone who loves to meet up with other dog walkers as he is so social with other dogs.

    Little Dash's owner has had a drastic change of circumstances which meant that he could not offer him the life that he wanted for him. And so he asked us to bring him in for fostering and re-homing.

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY FOSTERED IN KENT.

    Dave just wants to be loved. Circumstances have changed for his Owner and she now has to work long hours. It is not fair on Dave who just wants a bit of time and love.

    He is currently living with cats and is cat and every dog and child friendly. Dave is not an old dog, and loves to go out. He will pull on the lead to get out for his walks, but once he has had a bit of exercise is happy to amble along. Dave is neutered. He really would love someone around most of the time.

    Ruby was found abandoned suffering with mange. The holding kennels asked if we would take her if they got it contained. They did and we did. She was underweight, but a few weeks in kennels and she has put on some weight and now in Foster.

    She is currently living with three whippets with her fosters, and is a delight and friendly with dogs out and about. Ruby has not yet been neutered as she has been so poorly, but she will be shortly.. Her vaccinations have been started.

    Poor Pawz was found in an horrific state - Not only suffering from mange but he had clearly been dragged and suffered some horrific feet and leg and tail injuries. He served his 7 days and passed to another mixed Rescue who nursed him through the mange, and asked us to take him on.

    He is currently living with one female and one male Lurcher. He is a happy chappie. Quite happy in his own company. Pawz has met several dogs when out and been fine. He just wants to love and be loved.

    Pawz was neutered last week and has started vaccinations. He is ready for rehoming soon.
