Billy and Milly
Billy and Milly are 2 12+ Jack Russell crosses. Milly is tan and white, she suffers from epilepsy and can fit while watching tv. Billy is black and tan. Both are not good with other dogs and will react. They both don't like to be bathed. Not good with children. Sadly their owner is now in a nursing home and unable to keep them. Could you offer this grumpy couple a home???
I really hope you can help me.
Last summer I rescued a dog who suffered from Leishmaniasis from a beach in Greece. I brought him back to England, as I could not find anyone to re-home him with in Greece, and the alternative was euthanasia. Since the disease had not affected his vital organs and hence was treatable, I could not bear to have him put down unnecessarily. He has been on medication since August.
I live in rented accommodation and my landlady does not want the dog in the flat. I have been trying to re-home him for a long time but been unsuccessful due to his condition.His condition is improving, but he still tested positive for Leishmaniasis in April. My vet suggested I have him euthanised since I can’t re-home him due to his condition. I have not got the heart to euthanise an animal whose daily quality of life has not been impacted by his illness (yet). My landlady is putting a lot of pressure on me and I’m feeling desperate now.
Would you be able to offer this dog his last chance? Treacle is about 7 years old, neutered, male. He is most likely a cross between a Yugoslavian Mountain Hound and a Rottweiler. He is calm, affectionate, bright, easy to train and happy to please. Likes to know the rules and to have constant and good boundaries. Very sociable, both with dogs and humans, particularly likes children. Has a lot of love to give. Has been introduced to cats and gets along pretty well, however he likes to quietly growl at them as they pass. He is very easy to look after, will attend to himself if need be, but will remind you of his walking time if you ‘forget’. He is however, on Allopurinol to treat Leishmania, which he contracted in Greece. He has been receiving treatment for almost a year, and has been symptom free for over six months. He looks and acts healthy, with a shinny coat and full of vitality, you would never know he has a parasite. His condition requires him to take two pills in his food in the morning. Every six months blood tests to see if the leash is still active. Hopefully not for much longer. A dog with Leish can live a full and happy life providing he gets the love and attention he needs.
He is a wonderful dog and deserves a great life. He is the perfect companion dog.
Alfie is a sensitive soul, 9 year old Jack Russell. Vaccinations due July. He is not good with young children and can be reactive with some dogs as he has been attacked in the past. Can be nervous with strangers. Has been used to a horse yard so ok with horses. He has good recall.
Domino is a 3year old neutered Collie x. He is microchipped and vaccinated. He has never been with children so as such we would recommend a family without children
Zippy is a 6 year old staffie. He needs a quiet home as he does suffer from separation anxiety. He is a loving boy, just looking for a quiet home.
He is vaccinated, neutered and micro chipped.
Harley is a 5 1/2 year old staffy X. He is not neutered but is chipped. The owners are no longer able to keep him due to change in family circumstances. He can be nervous of other dogs and boisterous.
Nala is just 1 year old, staffy cross. She is unspeyed and due a booster vaccination. She is microchipped. Her present owner does not have time for her so she has become destructive. She is not good with cats or small animals. She pulls on lead. Nala will need an experienced owner with lots of time to train and spend time with her.
Roxy is a 21 month old collie x Staff x South African Boerboel. She is neutered and lives with another dog. Sadly due to work circumstances changing her present owners are no longer able to keep her.
Blue is a crossbreed/staffy, male, approx.3years old. Blue is a nice quiet dog who is just in the wrong home. The elderly lady who now has him can not cope as he pulls on lead and is too strong for her. He may benefit from being neutered.
