Dogs for re-homing

Pumpkin is around 14 months old and did not have a good start in life living outside in a garden and coming into rescue as a welfare case. He is an energetic excitable young man who has limited experience of the world and didn’t have any training or socialisation as a puppy. He likes people but can get over excited and jump up and grab things. He can be dog reactive and bark, lunge and get over excited when he sees them. He will need a rural home with someone who has the time and patience to visit him here frequently and get to know him and put in the training at home. He has not lived in a house so will need a slow intro from a room or area that can be sectioned off and have minimum items there. He is a really sweet boy who deserves a chance. Adult only home, no kids, cats, small furies or other dogs.

Bonnie is female rottie who had been very badly neglected/abused and came to us for rehabilitation and health care. With your support we have been able to do extensive surgery on her eyes and get her well again. Sadly Bonnie will always have trust issues and is not good with unknown people or dogs. She is another of our sanctuary dogs who will live here and loves playing in the paddock and time with those she trusts and snoozing on her sofa. Your continued support allows us to help and care for dogs like Bonnie who are sadly too damaged to re home.

Sebastian is a middle aged rottie around four years old. He is another of our Sanctuary dogs who could be re homed but needs a “very specific home” Seb is an ex guard dog and may also have been used for breeding. This means he has probably never lived in a home and he bonds very strongly with his handler and will protect them and the environment he is in. He can also guard food although this is much improved. He is not a bad dog and his behaviour was encouraged and reinforced by the job he did. He takes time to trust new people and can display guarding behaviour or over excitement. He would need a very experienced owner who is calm but confident and is able to visit regularly and get to know him slowly. The home would need to be rural with an outdoor kennel so that he could be introduced to a home environment slowly too. Ideally a property with its own land or in a very rural area. Seb is selective with other dogs and will tolerate some calm individuals but would need to be an only dog. Adult only home without cats or small furies. Once he knows and trusts you he likes small amounts of interaction re touch and loves being outside and playing with his toys.

Mr Gibbs is a male Rottie aged around 16 months old. He is sadly another pandemic pup who has been passed around and had limited socialisation and training.
He is a bright young man who needs an owner who is willing to put in the time and effort to continue his “positive training”. Gibbs can be reactive on lead which means he can bark and lunge at other dogs and people he does not know because he is fearful and did not have much socialisation due to lock down and unsuitable homes. We also know that he was picked on by a male Rottie so is currently not keen on other Rottweiler’s. He is very sporty, active and strong and likes to be busy and have a purpose so a home where he can do some sports training would be ideal.
He is now learning to socialise with other breeds of dog and could live with a medium or large breed after suitable intros.
Mr Gibbs although friendly with females once introduced is very much a mans dog and prefers the company of men. He needs a breed experienced rural home without children, cats or small furries as has high chase drive and is very bouncy.
Please do not apply unless you have read his profile and can meet his needs. Home checks apply

Yogi is a male rottie x aged around 5 yrs and another sanctuary dog here looking for a very specific home. Yogi was rescued abroad as a puppy and then moved to the UK with his owners. He has extremely high drive which means he likes to chase birds and small furies. Sadly, after an incident with a cat Yogi came back into rescue. Yogi also has some ear issues that require a specific diet and can make them sore and touch sensitive. Yogi can be suspicious of new people and takes time to trust so needs a home in the South West willing to visit regularly to get to know him. He prefers women to men and loves relaxing on his sofa or chasing birds in the paddock! He would need an adult only breed experienced home without children or other pets. He will tolerate friendly dogs on walks as long as they are respectful but would chase livestock or small furies so could only be let off lead in a secure area.

Max is a 5 year old Rott x cross. He has had a ruff start and has spent most of his life in kennels. He is incredibly bright and learns things quickly but he does have high drive, can get over excited and be fearful. Max has had limited socialisation with other dogs and the outside world so is another sanctuary dog or is looking for an experienced owner with positive methods of training in a quiet rural home ideally with own land. He would need a room or garage conversion so he can have slow introduction to a home. No cats, dogs or children. Max is a special boy who has huge potential in the right home. He loves his sofa in his room here or searching for his ball in the paddock.

Simba is clearly not a rottweiler! (But could live with a friendly one) He with us for re homing as we also have experience of the breed. He is around 2 yrs old and has not had a great life. Imported from China which will have been scary and we don’t know what his puppy life was like but suspect it was not very positive. He is touch sensitive particularly around the head and takes time to know and trust new people and can display how he feels quite formidably.
In many ways he is a typical Chow Chow and very Cat like. Chows can be affectionate but it is usually very much on their terms and like cats they can be very aloof and only want small amounts of contact. They are also quite predatory and like to chase and hunt birds, rodents and small furries. They are very stubborn and recall is rarely 100 percent so most owners keep on lead unless in a secure area. They do need lots of brushing and grooming which Simba’s owner would need to be prepared to do (once he trusts them) and until he is happy with a groomer.
Once Simba trusts and knows you, he can be a fun affectionate dog who is full of character. He is however fearful and needs an owner that is prepared to visit frequently and get to know him and build his trust. He likes other friendly dogs and could live with another after suitable intros. A rural home with either a breed experienced owner or one who has worked with fearful dogs positively in the past is essential. No children, cats or small furries. Please do not apply because he looks cute and fluffy, Simba is a special boy who needs an owner who will put in the work and take things slowly.
