This is the lovely, very friendly 6 month old Staffy cross Zeus who has very reluctantly come into rescue. We will be looking for a very special home for Zeus because his problem is he is DEAF. He needs a home where someone is at home most of the time and can teach him sign language. He already knows sit. The new home will have to have a very secure garden with high fencing as no way can he be allowed to escape as he will not hear any dangers that may be about.
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.
