3 adult dogs seeking new homes
Sadly during the first part of this year I have had three dogs left with me that need rehoming. I have had them here for a few months and they are all pretty stable and just seek attention.
I will list them below and if you think you could possibly give them a chance in life please get in touch with me. There is no commitment to you initially, if you try and the match does not work out they are always welcome back.
The reason for using this forum is that I think they will have a nice quality of life and possibly an active one if adopted by users on this site. None are to be adopted for breeding purposes.
If you would like further information please email me and i would be delighted to talk to you about them.
Thanks for looking.
1. Baby. Long coated, wire haired jack russell bitch approx 4 years, white with tan markings, very energetic, would make a great walking companion, does not run off when off the lead. Adores cuddles and attention. I do not know what she is like with very young children but shes fine around cats and other dogs. Living outside in kennel at the moment but would easily adapt to indoor life.
2. Blue. Blue merle border collie bitch, approx 3 years old, very pretty, long legged, devoted.
Currently outside in kennels, think she would prefer outside or a boot room/utility room. She is a little stressy when in kennel and sees cats, pigeons, birds but is like a little kitten when out and lies on grass beside me when i am gardening, or trots behind me, not leaving my side when out on a walk, she is brilliant off the lead and would be great for a very energetic family. She loves to play with the other dogs and lives with another but she never picks a fight. I think she would be good with younger children, she would adapt to an outdoor life and would probably settle camping etc. She is long legged and long coated so would need regular brushing.
3. Tia, black labrador. I bred Tia she is 5 years old. I sold her as a puppy but unfortunately at the end of last year her family had their house reposessed so she came back to me. She is as all my labs were, quiet, calm, loving, attentive and very obliging. She was out of a bitch I bred myself so I know her genes are good. She is a non barker. Would be good with kids as family had toddlers. She loves to swim in the ponds, river, love to retrieve, is great off the lead and never picks a fight or an argument with the other dogs. She would definitely benefit from living indoors, although is currently out in a heated kennel.
Tia is not used to excessive excercise but could adapt slowly. She is happy for a 3 mile walk and spends entire walk "fetching".
None of the dogs that come to me are kept on leads at any time. I simply could not excercise them enough if that were necessary. I take 3 or 4 out at a time and all come back willingly. I live in an area that does not require me to go out on the roads from my gate so leads would have to be reintroduced.
Please, before anyone judges, these are not my own pets, I am not a registered charity, I do not get donations of any kind, I am therefore not asking for any contribution towards them.
I do hope someone has room for one and there is a happy ending for this.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this. regards.
I suddenly want a dog now. They sound lovely!
And yes, I know we can't.
Hill dog? You missed the part about being in Essex then? Walking however, is not a problem. Chino and i covered around 1k miles last year. HOWEVER, we are cutting back, mainly as she is getting middle aged. Chris has always liked black Labs, i've always had a soft spot for Collies (almost had one instead of Chino), and Merles look gorgeous.
We have an above average sq footage of garden space, due to the layout of our street and our house being on the corner. And that's not including the front garden, which is currently fenced off. Open fields are a 10 minute walk away.
This is Chino:
Chris called me back. She's very interested, but we'll talk more this evening. Let me know what your schedule is.
Well fantastic news! Thanks for the many interested folk who contacted me. You will be glad to hear baby has settled in happily with an OM'ers grandfather who recently lost his own dog and baby is now a pampered pooch watching tv on the sofa and walking to the shops each day to get the paper. What a result
Tia has gone to a very young OM'er a delightful lady and her loving family and is apparently following her new owner everywhere. She has settled in with their elderly dog well and is looking forward to a life walking and camping in the Lakes. Maybe we will even occasionally get an update . A big thank you to both families.
We are now seeking to rehome a much tougher candidate. HARRIET a year old TUGGLE, she looks like a jack russell and is about same size as a standard jack. She is beautifully marked, smooth coated, not for the faint hearted as she has endless energy and is not currently housetrained. In fact she is not trained in anything at all! But she is a joy to be around. Very loving, mad as a hatter. Anyone brave enough out there?
Just wanted to update and let you know that we have been lucky enough to find a companion for Chino. Her name is Bella, a 6yo Collie/Lab mix. Needed rehoming as the previous owner was unable to give her the attention and care she deserves, to the point where his family stepped in and removed her.
The PO's family brought her to us (from Worcs) on Saturday as they (understandably) wanted to site visit and meet us. It has been incredible how quickly she has been accepted and accepting of our family. This weekend was 'full on' due to the 60th, so plenty of new people, locations and situations (and dogs). She handled it all with ease.
Obedient, gentle, well trained, and great around other dogs, we have really fallen on our feet with her. Chino's a bit put out having been an only child for 6 years, but i think she likes the company, which was the reason for having another dog.
