This is 11 month old Labrador x called Chip who has just come in through no fault of his own. He will be with us for a while as he has to be neutered, back dew claw removed and then work on his badly deformed front foot which happened before he was born when his cord got tangled around it.
UPDATE...... Unfortunately Chip the Lab is still with us. He had a home check a month ago but his new potential owners had a two week holiday booked a week after the home check so we said we would keep him for them until they came back. He was in his new home for a day and they found he was two much of a problem with young Grandchildren so he is back with us. He is 14 months old, very excitable because he is still a pup and he does have a badly deformed foot which does not stop him running about. If you are interested please message me your telephone number and I can tell you all about him.
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.
