OUR ADOPTION FEE IS £400
This is Pepe born in Portugal unwanted and abandoned a shelter.
Pepe arrived a few days ago and he is a lovely happy affectionate boy. But he has only known shelter life so needs a family to help him adapt.
Leaving him short periods often to build up being left. Walks. Meeting daily with other dogs if no other sociable dog in the home.
His new family will need to be prepared for the 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 rescue dog should not be taken lightly - we have had dogs returned as people have not been fully prepared for the investment that maybe needed. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, Pepe 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 he 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: Pepe
Where does Pepe sleep at night?
Pepe sleeps in his bed which is next to my bed. He sleeps through the night.
Is he clean indoors?
Can Pepe be left alone?
Pepe has only been a short time but he has left for around 15min. He cries to start with, but does start to settle. His new family will need to have a good routine in place to help Pepe adjust to being left alone.
Is Pepe out on walks and how does he walk on lead?
Pepe is out on walks and loves it, he maybe small but he does pull quite a lot, his new family will need to have to teach him lead manners.
Has Pepe met other dogs?
He loves other dogs; he likes to run around with them and go on walks together. He is also currently living with another dog and he does really well.
How is Pepe with humans?
Pepe absolutely loves people and really enjoys snuggles and attention.
Have you noticed any is afraid or worried of any particular things?
The only situation where I’ve seen Pepe worried is when he’s being left alone but this will improve over time when he learns to relax and settles.
THE PERFECT FAMILY FOR PEPE
Pepe would be happy being homed with another dog but he would also be happy being an only dog.
He absolutely loves people and his walks, so an active family who can provide both mental and physical stimulation for him is ideal.
The perfect family for Pepe will be one which can provide a good routine for him where he can be left little and often to help build his confidence when being left.
