Dogs needing homes

Twix

Black and white, Short Coat, Female, 3 Years Old

 

Twix has come to us from a farm life along with Jess, both sadly are now unemployed so looking for a new home. Twix is a happy and confident young lady who will just give you cuddles all day long if you let her. As she has only ever known a farm life we feel she would be happier in a rural or quieter enviroment.

Jess

Tri-colour, Long Coat, Male, 6 Years Old

 

Jess has come to us from a farm situation and now sadly needs a new home as she no longer has any work to do. He can be a bit shy at first meeting but soon the tail will begin to wag and curiosity takes over. As he has only ever lived on a farm a quieter enviroment would suit him best.

Guiness

Please note Guiness is NOT at our rescue, if you are interested in hime please contact

Forest of Dean Dog Rescue Helen 01594560670  Guinness is a 7 yr old male neutered border collie. He loves to play ball and is extremely bright - quickly picking up new tricks and commands. He does pull whilst on a lead but this has been improving and can be managed by further training and/or a harness.

Ideally needs an experienced owner who can offer this boy lots of stimulation, company and of course love.

Guinness can be a bit of an escape artist, so will need a secure garden and care when doors are opened.
He is used to children and living with another dog.

He has previously lived with cats however whilst in foster has chased the resident cats so may be better off without feline siblings in his new home, or with a cat that will stand up for itself.
Guiness in currently in Kennels and not doing very well there would also consider foster

Jimmy,s on the Telly

For all of you that kindly donated last year to dear Jimmy,s appeal for funds to repairs his knackered knee,s now is the chance to see him on the telly. His full story can be seen on April 25th on More4 channel at 9pm...The Vet on the Hill.  Do check the times tho just incase they change. For those who have not had the pleasure of meeting Gill White who runs this rescue she will be taking a starring role in this epsiode with Jimmy.

Watch and enjoy xx

 

Jimmy has now been adopted and is enjoying a very spoilt life, how many dogs have a wood burner in the bedroom !!

Kate

Black and White, Medium Coat, Female, 1-2 Years Old

 

 Kate  was picked up as a stray with her right foreleg was smashed at the shoulder and her jaw disfigured. It had clearly been like this for some time. She would have been in great pain.
A local rescuer took her immediately for veterinary care. There was no choice but to amputate her leg. Kate has been nursed by that same kind rescuer for 6 weeks. 
Her place at the Spot was assured, and now that she has adjusted to life as a tripawed she is looking for her forever family.
Despite her sad past Kate is a trusting, cheeky, loving and playful youngster, with so much to give.
Her zest for life is humbling. She gets along well on three legs, but will obviously not be able to manage very long hikes. 
We hope that someone will see past her disabilities and love her for the typically cheeky, determined little collie girl that she is. It is that character that has helped her to survive everything that she has endured.
A careful check will be needed to ensure she keeps a trim figure, so as not to put too much strain on her good leg.

Nan

Black and White, Medium Coated, Female, 2 Years Old

 

Nan needs a new home because her owner is very unwell. She is currently in the north west of England. 
Nan was assessed today. She is a lively girl who introduced well with our assessors young dog.
She is very loving, affectionate and playful.
She does pull on the lead, but only because she has had no positive training as yet.
Nan has only briefly met children and was fine. She showed no interest in a sleeping cat but we cannot say that she has been properly tested with either.
She is a beautiful girl needing to move on through no fault of her own to a kind, collie savvy home.

Glen

Black and White, Rough Coat, Male, 5 Years old

 

Glen has come to The Spot because his owner had to move from his cottage on a farm and could not take his dogs to his new accommodation.
Glen is a perfect gentleman in every way. He wags his tail the second you speak to him, or even just catch his eye. His temperament is wonderful. He is very responsive to kindness and attention. He was so sweet with a puppy yesterday, who came up and stole the toy from right under his nose.
Glen loves to interact with play. Any toy makes him a happy bunny smile emoticon
He has a huge coat which will need brushing through regularly.
Having been a farm dog Glen will need some training, but his willingness to please should make this a real joy for his adopter.

Peg

Black and White, Long Coat, Female, 1 year old approx.

 

Dear little Peg found herself homeless and in the stray pound and pregnant. She has now had her pups and will soon be ready for a new home, she will need a collie savvy home with lots of love and kindness. She will either need to be an only dog or with a calm male dog and definately NO cats. As we do not know her background she will need full training but she is slowly learning to play with toys. She is a typical bouncy young collie who will need the right training. She is currently in foster in Northamptonshire where she can be seen.

 Under the terms of our adoption contract she will need to be speyed at the right time.

Blue.....belle

Black and white, Long Coat, MALE, 1 Year Old

 

Blue ( belle ) arrived from a stray pound where they classed him as a girl but trust me he has all the boy bits !! Blue is a VERY nervous young chap who is going to need someone with time and patience to allow him to build confidence, this can take time and is not an easy quick fix. He is frightened of sudden noises so is going to need a quiet home, we think he may have been a farm dog so everyday sounds are all a bit alien to him. He will need full training as we don,t think he has had any but under this scared exterior there is a gentle soul just waiting to come out.

Storm Damage Appeal

28/03/2016

 

We really hate to do this but following the damage from storm Katie this morning which has hit us very hard we are appealing for funds to help rebuild one of the excersie area,s which also houses two kennels for the rescue dogs. Gill was actually in the run when the huge conifer tree was ripped from the ground and crashed through the fencing, thankfully Gill and the dogs in the area where lucky to escape unharmed. The frustating thing is we have just finished rebuilding another area that was damaged by storms 2 years ago. 

For the next couple of days Gill maynot be able to take your calls or reply to e-mails as she needs to sort out some temporary housing off site for the dogs that where kenneled in the area and to clear the debris to assess how much it is going to cost to rebuild.

 

My hearfelt thanks to everyone who is supporting us. It could have been worse I would have been devastated if any of the dogs had been harmed. We are hopefully going to be able to salvage some of the run to make a short term solution.On top of everything we have just been told two more trees need to be felled because if they fell they would land on the buildings holding most of the dogs
. Thank you to everyone for your kindness. x

Rob

Black and White, Rough Coat, 11 Months Old

He is gaining in confidence and learning the art of play, he responses well to priase and kind training methods. Rob is a registered collie with the ISDS but did not show an aptitude to work sheep. He is great around other dogs.

Mirk

Black and white, Short Coat, Male, 4 years old

 

Mirk has spent his life so far being a working dog but now finds himself without a job to do. He will need a home with someone willing to give him space and understanding as he is a bit nervous at first meeting but soon comes round especially for a tasty treat and then he is your new best friend. He would probably benefit from some further training.

Belle

Black and White, Short Coat, Female, 2 years old

 

Belle is a very energetic girl with lots of love to give and she is extremely agile. She has a wonderful nature. but would be best in a home where she is doing something.  With her speed and energy and the right training Belle would make a great agility or cani-cross competitor. She really is a fantastic little character who just needs a new start in life,
