Duke has sadly come back into rescue through no fault of his own. He was attacked by another Shepherd a while ago and he is now very wary of other dogs. He needs a home with no other dogs although he could probably live with a nice calm bitch. Also he has not had contact with young children so calm teenagers only. He needs a strong handler who has lots of time to work with him and rebuild his confidence when out walking and he sees another dog as he reacts to this. He is a beautiful loving dog who needs a loving home.
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.
