    GRACE. 7 YEAR OLD GREYHOUND X. (SADLY - APPLICATIONS OPEN AGAIN. NOT CAT FRIENDLY - WE ARE LOOKING FOR A FEMALE OWNER OR FEMALE ONLY HOME.)

    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 with a VERY large garden so she can follow them around. And someone who would take her out but not come across other off lead dogs who would come up to her. She would be very happy to potter around the garden with one good walk a day. 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.

  • JASPER. BEDLINGTON X. (APPLICATIONS OPEN)

    Click here to read this dog's discussion thread

    4 YEARS. 24"

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

    Jasper was rehomed back in 2013 as a young pup. Unfortunately his owner's circumstances have changed and is unable to keep him.

    Neutered and vaccinated Jasper is used to living with other Lurcher and Jack Russels, and so is missing their company. He is lead reactive outside the home but when let off just wants to round everyone up for a race. Very good in the home and good to be left for up to 4 hours.

    He is good with the dogs that he lives with and very good with humans and children. He needs some work on his lead reactiveness or someone with a lot of land so that he doesn'c come into continual contact with off lead dogs running up to him.

    We have a strict rehoming criteria. we do not re-home to anyone who works away from the home for 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.

    APPROX 5 YEARS. 22"

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

    Tinks was found wandering in Kent with a severe back leg injury, and served his 7 days in holding kennels. He came into us just before Christmas. Now being fostered in Essex and doing well.

    Having come in as a lead reactive dog, he has proved not so off the lead and has now met and walked with several dogs. He is a bit of a lap dog and loves people and all the dogs he has lived with. When he does go off lead he just stays away from other dogs and likes to chase scents along the fields.

    He is currently being fostered with two female Lurchers, but gets along with any dog he lives with.

    We have a strict rehoming criteria. we do not re-home our dogss to anyone who works away from the home for more than four hours in any one day, but home work based or a homemaker are good. 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.

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

    This lovely girl was in a loving home but circumstances have changed and it is best that she finds another home with someone around more.

Millie will be neutered shortly and she will be ready for re-homing.

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M.

    She has been very loved in her relinquishing home, but circumstances have changed for her Owner and they were unable to find accommodation where Lola could go with them. This is very sad for all concerned and particularly for Lola, who was very happy in her family. She is child friendly, and other dog friendly. She just wants some love, walks and quiet life.

    She can live with another dog, or as an only dog as long as she has someone around most of the time, as she is used to that life. - There are some lovely photos and videos on her forum thread.
