Spud

Spud needs a home !!

Arrived yesterday and was so scared to start with.
As soon as he was with the other dogs his whole life lightened up and he immediately set about introducing himself to all of them.
Rhian and Rocky were lovely with him.
Rocky is just the friendliest boy and loves all the dogs he meets and Rhian once Spud had stopped walking over her lay out flat and played with him.
He cowers when a hand is put out to him.
He will soon get over this and is already less afraid today

Gabbie needs a home !!

A day after Gabbie arrived we went to the beach with some of the others.
I somehow knew she would be good off lead and little star that she is she was.
She loves swimming, digging in the sand and chasing after stones thrown in the water.
She has settled really well in here in such a short time.

Gabbie arrived into the Rescue yesterday.
She is around five I would say and loves all the other dogs here.
She is still a bit anxious having had so many changes in the last week and still settling in. when she has had time to get to know me and realise that she is safe I will post more

Rocky

Rocky needs a home !!

progress update: 07/08/2022

Today by 8.15am in time to beat the queue, Rocky , Rhian and I were on our way across the ferry.
Both them had a great time and Rocky was impressive in that he didn’t bark in the crate when the engine was off.
He is improving all the time. He was off the lead, met another dog and said “Hello “.
Rocky is very tolerant even when Rhian’s play gets rough and always goes back for more.
It never matters which new dog arrives he is always friendly to them.
A little later Lianne took him out for another short walk and now he is lying on the cool tiles snoring as he sleeps.

Rocky’s Diary for Saturday, 23rd July 2022 (in Rocky’s words).

Last week I had a hectic few days.  Left the Dog Pound on Thursday, arrived at Helen’s that evening then out with one of the volunteers, Sara, on Saturday for the day.  Sara and I had a chat and she explained she wanted to find out about me generally and see if I needed any help with any behaviour issues so she could let Helen know what we need to work on with my self improvement so that I can find my fur-ever home.

I got in and out of her car without much fuss but I wasn’t very happy in the dog cradle on the back of the car so I did bark on and off to express my disagreement with the situation.  When the car was moving it wasn’t so bad but I didn’t like it when the car stopped.  I think I’d prefer being in a crate whilst travelling but I appreciate that may not always be possible so I need to get more comfortable with travelling in the car generally, in case my preferred method of transportation isn’t possible. I’ve been in Helen’s car in the crate a few times since and I travelled better with minimal fuss.

I’m quite a happy chappy when it comes to meeting other dogs and I enjoyed our walk around Canford SANG.  Sara let me off the lead in the enclosed area and I had a bit of a run around.  I’m not overly active and don’t need much running off the lead as I get hot quite quickly and being a Frenchie I struggle a bit with my breathing what with my snout being so flat.  But I had a good time and when Sara called me I was pretty reliable on my recall for which I got some treats.  I like treats!

I’m quite good at reading social interactions with other dogs and I’m particularly patient and gentle with puppies.  On our walk I met a cute five month old Boston terrier and we played and had a fun roll around on the grass.

I was ok with people I met and enjoyed quite a few fusses which were nice.  They thought I was a very good looking dog.  I very much liked my snout being gently stoked as its a bit I just can’t get to myself.  Sara told me the hair on my snout feels like velvet.  Well, I am a dapper little chap so that didn’t surprise me :-).

Walking on the lead is a bit hit and miss at the moment, mainly due to me not being able to stop myself getting overexcited.  I can walk really well most of the time but then I suddenly get very excited and start to pull.  As I’m a bit reactive to overexcitement, Sara walked me on a collar which I didn’t mind at all.  When Sara reminded me to calm down with a small flick of the lead, I did respond quite well. Reckon I need a bit more practice but don’t think it will take much and its not a main area I need to work on.

progress update: 07/08/2022

Rocky is starting to settle down and in the last two days stopped barking in excitement.
All new dogs into the Rescue are welcomed with open paws.
Last week he had the big op.
Everyone at our vets thought he was a super dog and they took photos of him to go with his post here.
I took him across the ferry with Rhian and was most impressed with his recall.
Even when he so desperately wanted to follow Rhian he came to me and walked with alongside me.

Arrived into the Rescue yesterday and immediately made friends with Rhian.
Typical French Bulldog full of life and like a bulldozer at times.
He and Rhian spent several hours chasing each other and playing.
He is still settling in and we are getting to know him.

Rhian

Rhian needs a home !!

progress update: 02/07/2022

We took Rhian to a beach last week where we knew it would be quiet with no-one there so she could have a good run off the lead and practise her recall without distraction.
She had a lovely time playing with seaweed, racing into the water and back out again and came when called.

 

https://www.facebook.com/283494308639/videos/2162350427256880

She has also been meeting up with Forest, Bo and Lyla for off lead runs in an enclosed area.
Rhian loves the company of other dogs.

Rhian is a very energetic and bouncy girl, she wants to say hello to everyone and play with every dog.
She will need plenty of opportunity for a good run and learn to remain calm when greeting others.

Rhian arrived on Monday from the dog pound.

She is around a couple of years old. Really nice girl in good condition for a change with the softest coat. Straight away she was up for a game with Sue’s dogs where she is fostering, usual speedy up and downs the gardens that Lurchers like to do. Quite unsure of walking on the tiled floor to start with but getting used to that now.

Larry

Updated June 22, 2022 Categories: dogs, progress updates, successfully rehomed.

Larry has now found a home !!

Larry is around 11 years of age and getting on well with the other dogs here.
He walked in and settled down straight away with them even to the point of letting Pippin steal his dinner.
He was meant to be barking at other dogs when out on a walk which is why he came back but I have not had that trouble with him since being with me.
The first walk out with the others he barked at a friend’s dog twice and after a quick “No ” from me he was fine.
Later on during the walk he passed by a dog with no reaction. He would suit someone who is home all the time as he does like company.
Saying that though he does settle down after the first night and is quiet until 6.30.
I don’t bother to set the alarm now as he does the job for it.
I think at some point in his life he may have been with an older person and used to being a faithful companion.
