This is 4 year old Siberian Husky Sky who has just come into rescue. Sky is good with everything, a really friendly girl.
UPDATE Sky has put on over a kilo in just a week so now I know it was lack of food causing her to be thin and nothing medical she can go to a new home. She will still need feeding 3 or 4 times a day until she reaches her ideal weight which is another 3 kilo. She is a lovely girl good with other dogs and older calm children. She does like company so no one who works full time need apply. Also a knowledge of Huskies would be beneficial as a Husky is a breed like no other dog.
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.
