    ROCKY

    [​IMG]
    Rocky is 10 months old, great with other dogs, chases the cats he used to live with, and has lived with a teen. Now he needs a home where he can have help to catch up on training, socialising, learning about the world and developing confidence. He needs someone at home to help him make up for lost time and unpick bad habits. He can me mouthy and has developed some anxieties having had no input. He’s neutered, vaccinated and needs an experienced furever owner with time for him.

    He is currently in foster in Greater Manchester where he will be learning about the world

    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 is small for a Rottie, with longer fur, so possibly crossed with a Collie?

    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.

    He is used to living with another dog and recently his very best mate in kennels found his furever home. This hit Maximus badly and he started to pine and lose weight and confidence. For this reason we think a home with a resident dog, maybe older and stable, would be preferable for Maximus.

    We thought we had found him a perfect home with a lovely family, another dog for company and children who he loved on their visits.

    But being in a home again triggered some awful memory from his past and he became anxious and fretful, unable to settle, waking with a start, defensive and pacing, panting and very distressed. As much as the family wanted to work through this with him, with two small children this wasn’t possible.

    We are fortunate to have a superb behaviourist working with us and she found him a live in temporary placement with a therapist/behaviourist working with zoopharmacognosy (google it, its fascinating!) and he’s thriving, calm, comfortable, sleeping like a log. His time there is coming to an end after Christmas, so we are anxious to find him a home, foster or furever, in Shropshire and surrounds, before then, as we are worried taking him back to kennels will set all his progress back.

    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). Maximus is at his happiest with another dog but it needs to be a small child and cat free home.

    Could it be you?

    If you are willing to offer him a foster home, we will need to be assured you will give him a home until his furever home is found however long that takes. He has been through enough in his short life.

    Thank you.

    CHASE

    [​IMG]
    Chase is a beautiful 10 month old cross breed pup – he is a mix of spaniel, dalmatian or pointer and as such will need a home where you are used to a smart intelligent high energy dog that is a combination of working breeds and so will NOT do well sat at home watching TV!

    Chase will need a home with exercise, mental stimulation, ideally a job to do or agility, obedience or disc dog stuff!

    He is an amazing young pup, great with other dogs, smart and well mannered, friendly and keen to do marvellous things – the right home will enjoy his energy and intelligence and get involved in activities to keep him happy and fit.

    Can you offer him a perfect Furever Home please? He is in kennels in Shrewsbury and any visitors would need to come and visit, bringing any resident dogs.

    Please fill in the Enquiry Form with as much detail as possible if you wish to be considered Thanks x

    TORUS
    [​IMG]
    Torus is a beautiful eight year old Greyhound boy who is looking for a new home through no fault of his own. Due to a significant change in family circumstances this lovely lad finds himself homeless and in need of a new houndie loving home.

    He was brilliant in a home environment and had lived with children but a terrible break in at the home when he was home alone has left him now a little less confident.

    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. He is a hunter/chaser in his heart so it has to be a dog, cat and furries free home. We also tested with pigs and sheep and he was keen to find a way over the fence, so its absolutely zero tolerance around animals.

    Now to the good bits, he is good with you around him when eating, 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 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 but can rehome UK wide to the right home. He’s house trained, sweet temperament and just desperate to be loved.
