Our dogs need the guidance which other dogs provide so we are asking for experienced, committed adopters who have another friendly dog in the house. You must be committed to the patience and training required with all rescue dogs, as this can be a lot of work and we want to ensure adopters are fully committed so dogs do not get returned as this is very unsettling for the dogs.
Our dogs deserve better after all they have endured in their short lives.

OUR ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN INCREASED TO £400 DURING SEPTEMBER DUE TO INCREASED TRAVEL COSTS.
This is Mickey, his siblings Mary and Mina arrived in the UK recently and are settling in well - now it's his turn. He is currently in a foster home, where he is adjusting well to his new, domestic, surroundings.
He is socialising well with 3 resident dogs and a foster puppy room mate. He is now walking well on the lead, wants to be cuddled and sit on his foster mum's lap. He is very calm and not excited by much (but that may just be nerves).
He is fully vaccinated and microchipped, but is still too young to be neutered so adopters will be asked to commit to doing this as soon as he is old enough.
His new family will need to be prepared for the hard work of a pup - basic training, toileting, walking on and off lead, getting used to noises and living in a home.
The decision to adopt a puppy should not be taken lightly - we have had puppies returned as people have not been fully prepared for the hard work that can come. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, Mickey will adapt and become a rounded dog. But please do not underestimate this can mean a few weeks of hard work.
Please only apply if you are 100% committed to the hard work a puppy can bring, broken sleep, toilet training, socialisation, boundaries. The first week is very important and with the right boundaries and guidance Mickey will easily adjust and make a lovely addition to any home but adopters need to be fully prepared.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ADOPT IMMEDIATELY PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REPLY.

Dog's Name: Mickey
Where does Mickey sleep at night?
Mike sleeps in his bed next to my bed and sleep until around 6 am
Is he clean indoors?
Mickey is still new to living in a house so he’s had a few accidents but is learning. I’ve been leaving the back door open for him.
Can Mickey be left alone?
Mickey hasn’t been here long so has only been left for 10 min. He does cries to start with but with time he learn to settle.
Is Mickey out on walks and how does he walk on lead?
Mickey at first was not 100% on lead but now loves it and loves new smells .
Has Mickey met with other dogs?
Mickey has met lots of new dogs and is great and loves meeting new friends.
How is Mickey with humans?
Mickey can be shy to start with but quickly learns humans are amazing and loves to play and have tickles.
Have you noticed the Mickey are afraid or worried of any particular things?
I’ve not notice him being nervous of anything he’s curious like most puppies and is still new to the the UK so is still adjusting to his new lifestyle.
THE PERFECT FAMILY FOR Mickey
The perfect home for Mickey would be people who love to be outside and walking but also happy to play at home with him. He enjoys being with dogs so if you don’t have another dog it’s a must that he meets with fur friends daily.
He is still new to the UK and being in a home situation so his new family will have to continue his training such as toilet training and him being left alone.
