    FRAZER

    Frazer is just 18 weeks old, a crossbreed, born October 2018, and has had the worst start you can think of for a puppy. Taken way too soon from his litter mates and mum, had two homes already and no input, training or effort at all in that time. He found himself in a dangerous situation and thankfully was rescued by one of our most experienced foster Mums and now needs his very own FUREVER Home asap.

    [​IMG]


    Frazer left his litter mates and Mum too early so has limited canine manners – he will need an experienced home as the only dog so that his socialisation and introduction to the world can be safe and gentle; he cannot live with small children as Frazer can get mouthy in play and may accidentally hurt a small child, so we think age 10+ could be best, if any.

    He has had NO input whatsoever and has been shuttled between a kitchen and a back yard then dumped on the street to take care of himself – he is with our fosters in a home now and is learning to walk nicely on the lead and all about toilet training. He is too boisterous to mix with their other dogs just yet but will slowly be introduced to them and he cannot live with cats – he is not cat friendly. He is a sweet little chap but will need someone with previous experienced, ideally someone with a bull background, to help this lad find his paws. You will need to be prepared to start right at the beginning with socialisation and introduction to the world as Frazer has been denied that by his previous “owners”.

    He is in foster in Nottingham and you will need to be prepared to visit him at least twice before adopting and fully commit to this pup. He CANNOT go to another home and then be let down – you must be 100% committed to the time, work, effort and patience he will need. Please only apply if you know you can absolutely stick with him and give him the home he deserves.

    ASHA

    [​IMG]

    Stunning bulldog cross Asha has been with us for a while now and we would dearly love to find her a furever home. She has some very specific needs though and maybe that’s why she hasn’t had the right home offer just yet.

    This gorgeous girl has been through the mill in her short life and as such needs quite a specific furever home. She is an amazing character but needs a home with little ‘traffic’ where she won’t be forced to meet strangers and visitors and she can have her own space to retreat to if needs be. She would NOT be suitable as a dog who is visited by a dog walker or family member whilst you are out – she is not trusting of strangers and takes a long time to accept new people.

    Children terrify her – clearly at some point in her past there have been some very negative associations with children and so she cannot live with anyone younger than 16 years of age – everyone in the home would need to understand the need to allow her to come to you on her terms, when she is ready – Asha is NOT a dog who likes to be cuddled, it frightens her to have such close, stifling contact but if you allow her the time, space and opportunity to make her own choices, she becomes a very loving dog – but under her own steam, her own terms.

    Asha can’t help that somewhere in the past she’s been badly treated by a human and as such this has left her with a fear of strangers and sudden movement. This isn’t something she will get over but it is something that can be dealt with by allowing Asha a safe space to retreat to and putting her in a separate room when you have visitors call – not rocket science but sometimes in our busy lives we can get complacent, and that is NOT fair on Asha – so you would have to be committed to her well-being.

    She’s a cracking little personality underneath her fear, comical in her behaviour when she feels safe enough to relax.

    She runs loose with other dogs at kennels but she can be very possessive over toys, treats or balls so she needs to go to a home where she will be the only pet and can relax and feel safe.

    So you see it is quite a specific home that she needs – someone who doesn’t see dogs as teddies needing cuddles, who can make sensible decisions for her and allow her her own space, can put her needs first and move her away when visitors call and will not ask too much of her in the early days, allowing her to make decisions for herself about you.

    Can you offer our special girl the furever home she truly deserves? You’d have to be pretty special yourself!

    LOUBIE LOU
    [​IMG]

    Very friendly girl indeed, she absolutely loves people, cuddles, fuss, attention, having her tummy tickled…anything people related – she loves affection and has lots to offer in return. She can be wary initially, but as soon as she feels they are ok then we just become more cuddle giving people! It’s very sad that she has been waiting for a new home for a while now, but that is purely down to her anxiety around other dogs.

    She is currently in kennels in Shrewsbury and would love an active home with lots of walking and exercise.

    If she could find a home with people, a large garden, no dogs around to deal with and certainly no cats, then she would absolutely flourish without doubt. She has soooo much love to give bless her, but just can’t handle dogs….any size. So a home with a large enough garden/space with high/solid fencing, and preferably rural so that she is not constantly bumping into other dogs on any walks – she is such a loving, affectionate girl, it is sad to see her spending all that time in kennels without anyone to cuddle up to.

    As with all our dogs, we can offer full behaviourist support to work on any issues and help her settle in with you, she is house trained, great with people and will make someone a loving companion – she just needs to overcome her fear of other dogs OR be with a family who accept that fear will not go away and would be happy to learn to manage her and keep her safe.

    Please consider adding Loubie to your family if you have the space, garden and love that this little girl so badly needs? We will give you 100% support and advice on taking care of her and can provide a trainer to work with you to help you handle her out and about – a strong “watch me” and a good cheese may be all you need

    PENNY
    [​IMG]


    PENNY is small for a Rottie, with longer fur, so possibly crossed with a Collie. She is a lovely affectionate girl, really loves being with and around people but has had variable responses to other dogs – some she has not been good with at all and others she has been “OK” with – she probably needs to be the only dog in a home and with someone who has large breed experience.

    ROSIE

    [​IMG]

    Rosie is a 6 year old staffie girl who loves to play ball and has that famous Staffie woogle off to a fine art!

    She is OK with other calm dogs and is a firm friend of Basil, but if she meets one who is reactive she will stand her ground and shout the odds. She is doing really well in kennels and is becoming more confident and not so concerned about other dogs and we can help you to continue this great work with ongoing advice and support.

    All she needs is someone who understands her fears and will take good care of her – our behaviourist will provide post adoption support – she is a fabulous friendly girl who loves to be with people and get fusses

    MAXIMUS
    [​IMG]
    This beautiful boy is Maximus – he is just 4 years old, and a really fabulous dog and all he wants is to be loved – he has not had a great past and due to a relationship breakdown was forced to live outside without much interaction so he will need a loving home who understands his needs and can be around for him a lot, at least in the early days, whilst he finds his feet and trusts again.

    Maximus is a very sociable chap and loves to meet and play with other dogs out and about, however, we feel a calm, quiet home with no pets or perhaps an older, calm, steady dog would be best for him and again he is very friendly with all people, young and old alike, but perhaps an older person/couple with no children in the home to create “unexpected noise” would be best for him.

    Ideally a calm, quiet, rural home where there are not tons of visitors and with a decent open space and the chance to meet other dogs out on a walk – he loves human company and that is really important to him so someone he can build a solid bond with and trust them enough to relax and enjoy.

    He is neutered, vaccinated and waiting. Please complete the enquiry form if you have an amazing home to offer to this amazing boy. Maximus is a great all rounder who will tick a lot of boxes if you are looking for a friendly and loving dog but he’ll need an experienced hand and a calm environment, and a lot of patience to see him through the transition from a safe kennel into a home environment. It won’t be easy and only really committed people should apply.

    Our behaviourist will be available to help and advise (paid for by FFH) as with all our dogs, so you would get lots of advice and support in settling him in but you must be prepared to be patient and adopt the approach she suggests so that Max can learn to relax and trust again. He’s a fabulous boy and needs a foster or FUREVER HOME before 11th January.

    Many thanks x

    TORUS
    [​IMG]
    Torus is chilling out in a foster home until early January but then will be looking for a furever home. He’s a beautiful eight year old Greyhound boy with a very strong prey drive so needs someeone with hound experience to love him and care for him.

    He’s always happy to see people, but gentle and waggy tailed, not jumping up. He’s a big strong lad when he gets running around so we think older children would be fine rather than small children running around.

    Unfortunately, he can be reactive towards other dogs and he is a hunter/chaser in his heart so whilst it needs to be furry free, he is doing well with the two other greyhounds he is in foster with – they have said the only thing that he does quickly is to go to sleep…… he’s not that bothered about going out for walks and is a big lad to shift LOL!

    He has no issues around food or being fed, loves treats, treat searches, and is fine to have the harness/lead put on. He enjoyed being gently stroked all over, although when we tried a rougher scratch, he tensed up and looked a bit worried. He will soon get used to this with more handing and learning to trust.

    Oh boy, does he do calm well. A typical Greyhound where sleep is the top priority, being in his bed is fab and just dozing and lying with you is great. In kennels when he is alone he is quiet and in his bed most of the time. He will be able to be left for short periods to begin with and gradually building up so that he can get his required hours of sofa snoozes please!

    He can pull on the lead, a general rule he was really good until he saw something and then lost the ability to pay attention and would pull!

    He can be timid around traffic, he’s probably not used to it. He wasn’t overly bothered, but was watchful of large vehicles passing. (To be fair it did seem to be a tractor and trailer outing! ) He is good in the car.

    All in all, a typical greyhound bless him, who needs an experienced GH home who will understand he has specific limitations around other animals…of any sort at the moment. Oh, and somewhere with a high fence – did we mention he’s a big boy?

    Please can you help him find a home again where he feels safe and loved?

    He’s in Shrewsbury now but we can rehome UK wide to the right home. He’s house trained, sweet temperament and just desperate to be loved.

    LOLLY

    [​IMG]
    Full details of Lolly to follow after full assessment, please bookmark this page!

    We are unsure of her exact age, but think around 4 years old. She's a mixed breed with possibly some English Bull Terrier or other bull terrier (she's about the size of an EBT) who needs a new start in the New Year. She's safe in our kennels now, but she's had a hard time and as a result can be almost too eager to please. She needs a calm, quiet home where she will get exercise and long walks.

    Lolly is a sweet girl who is good with people, loves a fuss, and as far as we can see so far, is fine with other dogs. She hasn't been tested with cats yet.

    RUBY TUESDAY

    [​IMG]

    Please say Hello to Ruby Tuesday, a beautiful one year old Bull Mastiff girl who is being rehomed after the vet suggested she might be best away from a bouncy crowd of dogs and not used for breeding. She’s a fabulous young pup but due to injury sustained in the former home can be a bit wary of other dogs at first. Who can blame her? With the right home and patient owners, she will no doubt flourish. With you maybe? Older children only and no cats. More info once she has been fully assessed.

    Please meet Sid – he is an 12 month old labradoodle x husky according to his vaccination card. Hes a big tall lad – with his combination of breeds he will need a home where you can take care of his needs in terms of both exercise and mental stimulation and as he is just a young pup, where someone is around most of the time.

    He is strong on the lead and will need guidance in all areas of general obedience but with input and effort he will make someone a fabulous companion. Sid needs work – he has spent much of his puppyhood in rescue and is not getting the mental stimulation he really needs so will need a home with someone used to large breeds who can work with him to help him catch up on lost time. FFH will gladly support a professional behaviourist to work with you.

    Sid is an immature puppy inside quite a big body and is a playful loving pup. He can cope with short periods of time home alone but any longer than an hour and he will get anxious and could be destructive. He is a fabulous young man who has not had the best start in life so we are looking for an experienced and committed home who can take on this young pup and help him find his way – the effort will be worth it in the long run. He will be best in a child free home until his over excited boisterous behaviour can be remedied. He’s a lovely friendly boy but had no input so his manners need work and he can be mouthy when over excited.

    Maybe you are looking for an intelligent, working, sharp minded large breed and can imagine Sid being the boy for you? He is having some work ongoing to help him relax and be calm but a kennel environment is creating frustration for a boy who just wants to think and work and problem solve and use up mental and physical energy. Can you help?

    We are looking for help from you please to find OUR Furever Home - PREMISES REQUIRED

    To enable us to keep helping dogs like Maximus and Chica and Rocky we need to find new premises as soon as possible.

    We need new kennels that:

    1. Meet the revised DEFRA regulations (October 2018). While we know these are not required by law for a rescue, we feel those are the minimum acceptable standards of space, heat, warm, light and comfort. Although rescues may not be bound by the same legislation as commercial boarding kennels, we feel rescue dogs deserve the same minimum standards.
    2. Are secure and safe and weatherproof.
    3. Have space for daily interaction, exercise and behavioural work.
    4. Has an opportunity to repeat Maximus’ experience with a separate space that allows calm and relaxation for the dogs who need it (if possible).
    5. Has space to create a ‘living room’ where dogs can spend time in a domestic environment having one to one attention and enrichment activity, if possible.
    We are happy to consider renting a block of kennels long term from someone or indeed a smallholding with outbuildings and a paddock.

    WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO INVEST IN THE FACILITIES to bring them up to standard if necessary and we have funds available to do so. We are a UK Registered Charity and have been for over 5 years and we can demonstrate financial capability.

    We would like to be located ideally between North Shropshire, South Cheshire and North Wales – but we are very much open to considering locations neighbouring.

    The most important criteria is a decent standard of premises that allows the dogs a certain standard of care and well being.

    If you know of any property available or soon to be available that meets our criteria, please could you get in touch?

    An email to helpnwdogrescue@gmail.com would be great!

    We are very excited at how much we could achieve so would appreciate your support in helping us make our dream a reality.

    We are hoping you’ll help us help Milo find the home he deserves. He’s a very handsome 3 year old American Bulldog cross, he has a fantastic nature, loves everyone he meets and is good with other dogs.

    Milo is not cat tested.

    Milo is super strong on the lead and is built like a bull so we would prefer to home him with older children due to his size and strength.

    He does love children though but would probably mow them down and then give them a good wash!!

    Milo loves to play and would benefit from an active family home. Milo is neutered and chipped and is ready to find his forever family.

    He’s in kennels at the moment in Carmarthen where we are sponsoring his place and if possible we’d prefer a home local or thereabouts please!

    [​IMG][​IMG] Treacle when she first arrived in kennels
    [​IMG]and just a few weeks later

    Treacle is a young Lurcher, not yet 12 months old. She was abandoned with poor skin condition before Christmas and came into kennels as a stray.

    She had obviously suffered a great deal of neglect.

    Fast forward a few weeks with some tender loving care, and she is as good as new!!

    Treacle is full of beans, super people and dog friendly, loves everyone! She has not been cat tested.

    She could do with basic training but is keen to learn.

    This beautiful young girl would suit a family wanting a loving companion, she’s just a bigger version of a lap dog….or so she thinks!

    Treacle is neutered and chipped and ready to find her furever family.

    She is in kennels in Carmarthen.
