German Shepherd x Golden retriever
This is the wonderful Bengi who has just come into rescue. We do not know what happened in the first year of his life but on his first birthday in December found himself free to a good home on Gumtree. His present owner rescued him but unfortunately did not know their 2 year old daughter was allergic to dog fur so reluctantly asked for our help. He is 15 months old and a German Shepherd x Golden retriever and a big boy. He is very bewildered and frightened at the moment so will be working to build his confidence. He needs a home where someone has the time to exercise and train him. He seems fine with other dogs except nervous of them and I do not know about cats.
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.
