Lilly Female Rottweiler cross

Lilly is a 7 year old Rottweiler cross.  She is a highly intelligent dog, who needs a special home with an experienced, sensible owner;  ideally someone who has an active outdoor life and needs a dog to accompany them.    She might also be suitable for scent work as she is not large, and learns fast.
 
She was very worried about getting into a car, but now with patience and perseverance, she travels quite happily.   She was also extremely unsure about walking on a lead, and would suddenly stop and refuse to move, so it took time for her to appreciate that a walk was a “good thing”!
Her training will be ongoing as she knew very little when she came to us and has obviously suffered setbacks being moved around.   She is very affectionate and loves a fuss, but gets very excited with toys and balls, so play is limited and training games are best.   And she has occasional mood swings which maybe to do with her previous life.
 
She walks with our other dogs and is fine, but can react to strange dogs if they push into her, especially if they bark at her.

Lilly settles well at night and has not been upset by fireworks. 

She came to us from the pound and we have had her over a year.   

Lilly has been homed twice and returned twice – different reasons both times.   We always make it clear to adopters that there is no substitute for  professional help and sometimes an experienced eye can pick up something quite simple – we also give out a list of dog trainers and behaviourists who we know are thorough.     Sadly this advice was not acted on.   We can only say that Lilly is a delightfully friendly dog – she has never been difficult with any of the staff or volunteers at the sanctuary and even likes the vet.   She can however be stubborn and sometimes needs to be coaxed into the right action.   And she needs a home where she won’t be left as she gets upset.
We do hope that there is the right person out there for her, who will be patient and understanding and take advice if necessary.
We think that she would be best suited to a one or two person adult home.

Buddy Male Lurcher

Buddy is a 3½ year old Lurcher.

When Buddy first came in to us, he was very nervous and distrusting of humans. Over time, Buddy has become a very friendly and playful boy. He very much enjoys his one-to-one time and is learning how to show affection in his own special way!

He loves nothing more than a speedy sprint around our field and will happily play fetch with a football or tennis ball until he is tired out. Treats are also a favourite of his.

Buddy is good and attentive when out on a walk and walks nicely on a lead. Owing to his lack of socialisation when younger, he can be a bit vocal when he sees other dogs out on a walk, but with further input and more socialisation this can be addressed.

As a Lurcher, Buddy has a very strong prey drive and is interested by small wildlife when out walking and small pets in the house. Therefore, Buddy would be suited to a house where he is the only dog without other pets or animals.

Rico Male Crossbreed

Rico is a 2½ year old crossbreed.  He missed out on input in the formative months of his life so had lots to catch up on.

He is a sociable boy who is very playful with all shapes and sizes of dogs but just needs to learn some more manners as he can be boisterous in his play.
He is looking for someone strong as he is still learning not to pull on the lead.  He has a strong prey drive when out walking and sees small furry wildlife.
He is highly intelligent and is looking for a home that will carry on with his training and give him mental and physical stimulation.

Coco Female French Bulldog

Coco is a 4 year old French Bulldog
She will need a calm, experienced home. It takes Coco a little time to get to know people, but once she trusts you, she can be a very playful and affectionate girl who enjoys grooming and cuddles. Coco enjoys socialising outside with other dogs as long as they are calm and relaxed.  Coco does become attached to her humans and has a lot of love to give, so she will need to be the only pet in the house.
