Dogs needing homes

Fidget

Tri- colour, long coat, male, 9 years old

 

Fidget is a loving but complex character, he sadly came into rescue as he couldn,t cope with the baby noise in the house which was causing him great distress. He really doesn,t like loud or squeeky noises but will happily play for hours playing with a ball. Whilst he is fine around other dogs we feel he would be best homed as a only dog in a quiet rural home. He has had no lead training so really pulls on his lead so would ideally suit someone looking for a loving companion who can run around in the garden and not go on long walks....also cats are a NO.

Nora

Black and white, short coat, female, 15 months old

 

 

Nutty Nora is a typical lively collie full of life, love and energy. She has only ever know a country life so needs a rural home where she can run about like the little loon she is. She has had no training and has picked up the collie trait of wheel and jogger chasing although she takes no notice of cars. She really needs a collie experienced home that will help her to ignore this urge but she is a quick learner and in the right hands will learn this is a no no. She has so much love to give and will hug anybody who comes near her, she has the intelligence and speed to become a fantastic flyball or agility dog, She is great around other dogs, travels well and is housetrained. She will also need to be spayed when the time is right.

Rif

Red and White, Rough Coat, male, 18 months old

 

Rif is a wonderful friendly boy who will melt your heart. He came to us via another rescue who did not understand his breed and were going to put him to sleep. He has had no training so is going to need a very knowledgeable owner who will socialise and train him properly. He is fine around other dogs and very keen to play with anything going but needs to learn some doggie manners so starting him in a puppy training course would really benefit him.

Dottie,s Right For Sight Appeal

Dottie is a beautiful 14 week old pup who is adorable, happy and loving. However in a very short time Dottie will be completely blind due to a condition she was born with. She can have a operation which will enable her to have full sight for the rest of her life but this is very expensive. We are appealing to everyone to help us save Dottie from a life of darkness as we could not turn this poor little girl away and have taken her into the rescue in the hope we can help her.

 If you can just spare a pound or two to help then please donate via our paypal account on the donate button at the top of the website. Please state it is for Dottie so we can keep her funds seperate.

 

Thank you from Dottie xx

 

Update 4 / 12/ 14

Thanks to so many amazing donations we have now reached our target for Dottie,s operation when she needs it, hopefully Gill has replied to everyone who has donated but with the large number of donations apologies if she has missed any. We really do appreciate all the donations following this appeal. Dottie has an appointment with the specialist next friday to see how much her sight has deteriated since her last appointment. They are hoping she can have her operation when she is a little older as it would produce a better result but if it is going down hill too quickly it will be done sooner.  Any further updates will be on our Home Page.

Forest

Please note Forest is NOT at the rescue , we are just helping another rescue to find this loving boy a new home. If you feel you can offer him a new home please contact the rescue  http://www.starfishdogrescue.co.uk/dogs-looking-for-a-home.html this is his story,

This is probably one of the hardest homing ads we have been asked to write as it features a lovely dog known to us since he was a puppy. Forest’s owner is a lovely young man who is terminally ill with limited time. He wants what is best for Forest and has asked us to find him a home that will love him as much as he does and give him what he needs. Forest is currently still living with his owner.

Forest is a Bearded Collie x Greyhound and has been with his family since a baby – he was a naughty puppy, full of mischief! But those puppy days are over and Forest grew up into a stunning, beautiful and well balanced dog.

Forest is a Lurcher and in the woods he will chase after things but he has never killed or attacked anything he just likes the chase. He has even come across baby deer and has not hurt them. He lives with a cat with no problems but will chase other cats when out.

For a Lurcher his recall is pretty good over the park although in the woods it can be a bit hit and miss as he will sometimes take off, but always comes back. His owner says “with him he is fine but if other family members take him out he will muck them around sometimes so he needs a confident owner who Forest can respect as this boy needs to be able to be let off the lead”. He loves to go to the fields and have a ball thrown for him and will race around with the other dogs.

Forest is the most loveable dog and a lovely gentle boy- he loves nibbling ears and his love for his master is very obvious to see. He is fine being left for 3 - 4 hours.

We need a 5 star home for him who can give him a wonderful life. We think Forest would be best an only dog only because that is how he has lived or perhaps with another girly doggie friend - his Daddy said “Forest adores Whippets and he always dreamt about getting Forest a little Whippet sister”.

Forest has been neutered and will be vaccinated & microchipped prior to homing.

If you are interested in offering Forest a 5* home for life please email for our questionnaire in the first instance to: starfishdogrescue@hotmail.co.uk
