This is 2 year old Zac a GSD x Akita (we think) who has just come into rescue. His owner has gone into hospital permanently and he ended up in a dog pound. Nice big boy who is being assessed. As you can see he needs a good groom and the last picture is after a quick brush.
Unfortunately Zak has been returned to rescue as he and the resident Shepherd do not get on. All seemed fine until the owners old dog passed away a few weeks ago. Why this should cause the 2 boys to fall out we do not know. The owners are devastated and have not come to this decision lightly as they love this dog to bits but the older dog, although he is most of the problem, must come first. Zac is a GSD cross we think Akita. He is approx 2 years old and is looking for a home where he is the only dog and with older children only.
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.
