Molly

Please note Molly is NOT currently at the rescue but still in her home near Leeds, if you feel you can offer this very precious girl the life she needs please contact them direct on the e-mail at the bottom of her write up.

 

 Molly has a mild form of myasthenia gravis which means she cannot walk very far, she has been diagnosed and now has 1/2 a tablet once a day to prevent full blown symptoms . She is with a family of people and other dogs, because of her disability she is now left behind for long periods and is very upset about this.  Molly is a real sweetie, she loves cuddles and tickles, she plays with children or anyone who will give her a fuss. She walks on the lead really nicely - 10mins will do for her, she eats a normal diet and is housetrained, her recall is excellent, she is the ideal dog for a sedate home  who dont want to walk far. Her medication costs £12 per month, she does not need any further vetinary treatment or check ups for her myasthenia. 

Molly would ideally suit someone looking for a loving companion who doesn,t need daily hours of walking, she has so much love to give and is such a placid and loving girl. If you would like to know more about this amazing girl please contact Salli on salli.midgley@btinternet.com

Tilly

Tri-coloured, short coated, female, 5 years old

 

Tilly,s reason for coming into rescue is very sad. Her daddy owner died a little while ago and she was so devoted to him as she spent every hour of every day with him. She is now quite depressed and her family feel that she needs a home where she will get undevoted attention as sadly she is now left at home during the day whilst they work. They really do love her but feel she would be better in a new home. She is good with other dogs and cats but is a bit frightened of small children....well they can be a bit scarey can,t they.

This girl would make someone the most loyal friend and companion.

Spy

Black and white, long coated, male, 10 years old

 

 

Spy is a dog that loves to just lounge in the sunshine and plodd around his own space. He is good around the other dogs here and is quite happy to push forward for a fuss if he feels he,s being ignored. He would make someone a great companion to share the gardening with. He is not good on the lead so would suit someone looking for a friend who doesn,t need endless walks. All he needs is a safe garden with a loving home attached. In his picture he has had a haircut but his coat will grow back to be a long coated gent.

Stanley

Black and white, short coated collie cross, male, 2.5 years old.

 

 

Stanley is sadly coming into rescue due to a change in his families circumstances. Stanley loves walks and runs and rarely gets tired. He is very gentle and kind mannered to those he trust and knows and loves a cuddle, he still tries to climb on to our laps to snuggle up. He has grown up with their son Rufus who is now 6 and has never shown any negativity towards him or their new baby although he is a very bouncy energetic dog who is inclined to jump up for a hug. He loves his chew toys and balls  (not shoes and owners things). He likes to bark to let us know someone is at the door. He is playful and bouncy, full of excitement and fun. He knows commands such as sit and wait and has good recall, he does pull on the lead a little so they have used a shoulder fixed harness and this works really well. He travels well in the car, he is toilet trained and responds well to kennels if you were to travel for a week.

Branco

Branco is NOT at the rescue and will not be coming into us. If you feel you can give him a new home please contact the owners direct...contact info at bottom of his story.

 

 

Branco is a loving, full of character Border Collie cross originally rescued from Crete and brought back to full health.  His rich white coat and with caramel swirl is really different to a lot of Border Collies.  He loves running in parks, in heaths, bramble patches and over fallen trees.  He is the first one to jump into a river or lake if given the chance.  He even runs in his sleep!!   His favourite park at the moment is Richmond Park because he can run in big open fields, through running streams and bark at deer.  He is perfect for a young family as he loves small children and will follow them all day around the house to make sure they are OK.  His favourite treats are big butchers cow bones, roast chicken skin, beef jerky and drinks more water than any other dog we've seen!  Branco does get anxious when he is left on his own but with love and affection, he quickly builds a bond with anyone.  He is a regular feature at our local pub (he loves pubs full of friendly people waiting to scratch his head).  We took Branco in when he came over from Crete because his original rescue family could not longer take him in and our friend who rescued him had a change of personal circumstances which meant she could not longer look after a dog.  We've kept Branco since September 2013 but being a full time working couple we cannot provide him with the kind of life that we feel he best deserves and would thrive in.  Branco would be ideal for a young family or elderly couple would want a loyal companion and have access to ample open space.  We will miss Branco dearly, we want to give him the best life and hopefully hear about his adventures in years to come."
