First of all please excuse pictures, not easy taking them as George does not stand still for 5 minutes. He is a 7 month old Patterdale terrier Puppy who has had a less than active life so far which has caused him some frustration and not able to burn off his energy. He need a home where someone will be with him most of the time and spend time training him. First of all he pulls like anything on the lead although after 3 days that seems to be a bit easier. He is obsessed with other dogs which seems to be play but the others do not like it and I can see George will end up getting hurt. He needs a home with very experienced Terrier people, no cats as he did live with one and chased it all the time, no other dogs unless you know what you are doing and no young children. George is a challenge at the moment because of his past but is a lovely boy with us now. If you feel you are the right people for this boy please message me your telephone number.
All of the dogs that come through our doors go through a period of assessment and medical treatment as required, this will enable us to discuss with you the current needs of the dog.
By default the dog will be:
- Assessed by our Vet
- Wormed, treated for flees.
- (where necessary) on appropriate medication.
For guidance only:
We advise you spend time with the dog. Please be aware that it's personality will change over time as they/you interact.
You will be asked to complete a pre adoption/home check form.
When we have received this we will make contact with you and arrange a home visit, where we will verify your home check paperwork.
You will then be asked to complete the adoption paper work and you will need to sign the declaration to say that you accept the terms and conditions.
If at any stage in the adoption process, we feel that the situation is not right for our dog, you may be turned down. We don't have regimented rules on what homes are suitable.
If you decide to adopt one of our dogs we ask for an adoption fee of £175 - £200 (to cover some of our costs), this depends on the age and breed of the dog.
Sometimes we have older dogs looking for homes which we lovingly call our ‘doggy pensioners’ and for these dogs we ask for a reasonable donation. Older dogs make wonderful pets.
