Albert

Albert

Albert is a lovely chunky monkey aged 5 who we think should shed a pound or two. He has come into rescue because of a change in his owner's circumstances. Albert has lived with children but does not like them getting into his space . He has given the odd growl when harassed by the baby but never more. We are looking for a home for him where any children are over 12 years of age . Albert walks well on the lead but can lunge if people walk directly at him but not to do anything . He ignores most dogs when out but again can make the odd lunge when on the lead . His recall with his owner has been good when let off the lead and he sat on command from us when he came in. Currently Albert is in kennels in Milton Keynes and ignored the dogs around him completely. He chases cats but has never caught one so we are unsure what he would actually do if he did. The photo does not show it but he has a full tail. He is vaccinated, chipped and neutered. If you think you could offer the boy a home please contact Lorraine Harvey on 01926 429903.

Kenzie & Hooch

Kenzie & Hooch

Kenzie and Hooch are a bonded pair aged 8 and 6. for whom we are seeking a home together Kenzie is the elder, he is white and neutered. Hooch is younger and is a dark brindle boy. He will need to be neutered when in his new home and HCBW will help towards this cost. Hooch relies on Kenzie and can be agitated and nervous when separated from him. He will bark if Kenzie is not in his sight. Both pull on the lead and will benefit from some training. Neither have lived with children and are not used to them so an adult only home will best suit their needs. They have come into rescue through no fault of their own . Currently they are in kennels in Gloucestershire. If you would like to know more or think you could offer these boys a home please contact Lorraine Harvey on 01926 429903

I am interested in this dog

Ollie

Ollie

POSTED ON BEHALF OF HAPPY LANDINGS DOG RESCUE, SHEPTON MALLETT, SOMERSET

Ollie is a 7 year old Boxer dog who is desperately looking for his perfect happy ever after home.
Ollie needs experienced owners who have the patience to give him all the time and space he needs to settle into a new home environment and to find his confidence there. Ollie needs a quiet adult only home, ideally with just 1 – 2 adults who invest time getting to know and to understand Ollie. He is a very sensitive boy who can easily be misunderstood, but there is a big heart in Ollie and a strong desire to belong.
Ollie will need time to get to know and trust you, but is a wonderfully comical, playful and extremely affectionate dog when he has found that trust. He loves to make you laugh, loves playtime, cuddles and interaction. As you can see from the photos, once he does know you he is a lap dog in the making and certainly very happy to snuggle under a blanket on the sofa!
Ollie is good with other dogs and could happily live with a doggy friend. He has good basic obediance and is good both on and off the lead. He does not worry about having to spend a few hours home on his own so would not mind an owner that works part time. Ollie cannot live with cats.

If you are interested in offering this boy a home or knowing more, contact Happy Landings on 01749 860350

Olly

Olly

POSTED ON BEHALF OF LARGE BREED DOG RESCUE

Olly is a six year old white boy in need of a new home. He is a friendly boy but can be reserved to start with in new environments . He can be stubborn on the lead and just stand still. He requires coaxing to move along. Olly has not had the best start to life but this is going to change. Because of Olly's past experiences we would say no to children under 12 years old and for those older to be savvy with larger breeds. He does not seem concerned by other dogs but we shall know more when he has been with us longer and we have completed his assessment. If you would like to know more about Olly , please contact Large Breed Dog Rescue direct. Their facebook page provides details for making contact.
