loving the unloved, homing the homeless

Dogs needing homes

Jess

Tri-colour, short coated, female, 15 months old

Jess has had a really bad start in life and is looking for a extra special home that will show her what love is. She has come from a farm enviroment and its obvious that she has been very badly treated. She is really scared of people and is going to need someone who will give her the time and space to come out of herself, this can take a long time but the reward of seeing the life come back into her eyes is the best reward you can get. She is fine around other dogs and would probably benefit from being homed with another resident calm dog as she will learn so much from her fellow canines. She needs a quiet calm and rural enviroment to help her heal and for this reason we wouldn,t rehome her with small children. This little girl does not have a bad bone in her body and so deserves the life she should always have had.

Mischa was rehomed by us in 2010 but sadly now has to come back into rescue as her owner can no longer care for her. She is a loving and friendly girl who would make someone a great companion. She is a girl who likes to be kept busy and does enjoy a nice long walk and a good play. She is housetrained and good around other dogs but hates cats . she also doesn,t like thunder and loud noises. She  also has passed "the Kennel Club" canine behavior & training Gold Award".

Herbie

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

 

Herbie is a collie cross with the most piercing blue eyes. He has come to us from a pound where he was signed over by his owner. Herbie is a calm boy who is a bit shy at first meeting but once he gets to know you is affectionate and obedient. He has a funny habit of grumbling but there is no aggression there and with a treat he will be your best friend. We don,t think he has had much training so going back to basics would benefit him, he is very good around other dogs and might be best homed with another dog to help him overcome his shyness. He is good on the lead and clean in his kennel at night. Due to his shyness we would prefer he had a rural home with no small children and only older children who will respect his space.

Buster ( Reserved Pending Homecheck )

Tri-colour, long coated, male, 3/4 years old

 

Sweet Buster was found as a stray and has obviously not had much love in his short life, He is quite bashful at first meeting but once he knows you mean him no harm he comes out of his shell. He is ok around other dogs but can feel overwhelmed with too much going on so would like a nice quiet home where he can learn what it is to be loved.

Ben

Black and white, short coat, male, 5 years old

 

Ben is a dear fellow who has obviously had a terrible start in life, we think he has been kept in a small area and been badly treated. He can get quite stressed if there is too much going on around him so he is going to need a extra special home. He needs a quiet enviroment whilst he learns to trust and see that the world can be a wonderful place. He would probably suit someone looking for a companion who is not too demanding. Considering how badly this lad has been treated he shows no malice towards people , he walks ok on the lead and is good around other dogs,

Roxy

Please note Roxy is NOT at our rescue please contact Diana Brimblecombe Rescue Centre if you feel you can give this special girl a home  http://www.dbarc.org.uk/dogs.html#

 

Black and White, Short Coat, Female, 5 years old ?

 

Are you the very special person for this very very special girl? She will melt your heart, but her story will break your heart.

Roxy's former owner was a farmer, and was surrendering her to rescue due to his own ill health. 
Fair enough, one would think, but he said nothing about her past. Then, when Roxy was being spayed prior to coming to DBARC, the Vet noticed a problem with one of her hind legs, took an X-ray, which showed very serious damage to one of her hips. 
The farmer was contacted. Oh yes, he had forgotten to mention that some time ago, he couldn't even remember what year, he had run her over with his tractor. He didn't even take her to the Vet. 
So this poor dog must have suffered agonies with an untreated fracture, which eventually healed to give her a painful and partially disabled leg, and she has struggled on for years like this. 
We couldn't get Roxy into the care of our Vets fast enough! Orthopaedic surgery was carried out, with immediate and miraculous results, and now after just a few short weeks, we have a comfortable and fully mobile dog who is already able to use that leg very well, and has now been signed off by our Vet as fit and ready for rehoming.

Roxy is an adorable darling, and it is truly amazing that she has the ability to love and trust humans, as she has only ever known neglect and suffering until now. 
She was the model patient, and she is a wonderful dog, but she will need a very special home, as she has a quite understandable terror of motor vehicles. She has never seen road traffic, and the only farm traffic she encountered caused her dreadful injuries. 
She will therefore need either a home with lots of land for her to enjoy without ever needing to walk on a road, and/or a loving and patient owner who will help her overcome this very understandable fear. We are working on this at DBARC, and her new owners will need to continue the therpeutic process. 
This beautiful dog has a wonderful, loving heart, a gentle and trusting nature, and an endless appetite for cuddles! She is an absolute sweetheart, who has had nothing, asks for nothing, yet has infinite love to give. 
If you are able to match this love, and give her all the special care she needs, please come and meet our darling Roxy.

Lassie ( Reserved )

Black and white, long coated, female, 9 months old

 

 

Lassie is a very sad and frightened little girl who is going to need someone with the time, patience and love to help her understand that there are nice people in this world. We are not sure of her background as she was found as a stray but whatever has happened to her she has lost her trust. She is not an aggressive girl to people or other dogs. If you pick her up she will cling to you like her life depended on it. She will need a rural and quiet home, preferably with another dog and NO small children. She will also need to be speyed after her first season under the terms of our adoption contract.

Nikko and Yang

Both of these dogs are currently in Romania where they are beoing cared for until homes can be found for them in the U.K. They have both secured funding for their travel costs so we helping to advertise them to help them start a new life over here, We will deal with the enquiries and the usual homechecks will apply.

Nikko is approximately 2 years old. He is also very friendly with people and dogs and we also told he is good with cats. He is in foster with a local vet in Botosani and is in good health. We do not know as many details about Nikko but we do believe he is house/kennel trained.

Yang is approximately 2 years old. He is very friendly with people and other dogs and wants company.We are told he is kennel trained (so should be house trained) and knows basic commands but of course that will be in Romanian. He walks well on a lead and has played with children with no problems. He does need both mental and physical stimulation so should be good for agility.The only problem with Yang is that he has had fits in the past. He was with Onevet in Bucharest from September until December and just before he was due to leave for the UK in Nov he had 2 fits. They put him on medication and in Dec I had him moved to a good private shelter. The lady there does not use medication for him and since then he has had one fit but it was brought on by him being scared of something. Obviously this will put people off of adopting him but maybe someone will see just the beautiful dog that he is.

Bailey

Red and White, Long Coated, Male, 2-4 years old

 

Bailey is very energetic, loving and affectionate. He will follow you around the house and loves human company, although would not be suited to being around young children. He loves exercising and gets on well with  other dogs. He adores playing catch with a tennis ball, and could do this for hours. His main issues are that he  is very sensitive to noise and will bark and whine when I empty the dishwasher, dry my hair, hoover, etc.  When this happens, he will chew the fur on his side, but does not damage the skin. I believe this is a way of coping with his anxiety.

 

He would be best placed with someone who is experienced with dogs, particularly with collies, and has the time to train and exercise him frequently to keep him physically and mentally active. He responds to commands such as to come, sit and stay, and is very food motivated.

Fidget ( Reserved )

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.
