Russ is a happy, sociable and friendly pup, one of a litter of 7 which was dumped at the gates of the shelter we help in Portugal. They have remained there ever since as there are rarely offers of homes locally.
As the pups were found without their mum it is hard for us to say what mix of breeds they are.Consequently we have promoted them as 'up to medium', please note the pictures make the puppies look bigger than they actually are.
Russ is fully vaccinated and microchipped but is too young to be neutered so we will need adopters who will commit to doing this as soon as old enough.
The puppies will need toilet training, training , learning to walk on a lead and a little time to adjust to living in a home environment after growing up in a shelter. The outside world will be brand new to them - traffic, people, open spaces etc
With the correct training, guidance and boundaries our puppies will settle well and we ask our adopters to be fully committed to doing whatever is needed for each individual pup.
We will only process applications from applicants who can adopt / take a dog home on the arrival date or shortly after. You will need to travel to Fleet, Hampshire to meet / adopt from there, so please check the distance before completing the adoption enquiry form.
A home check pass will be required before reserving, meeting or adopting a puppy and we are unable to promise / hold a puppy at any point through the process before a completed home check.
Please click 'adoption policy information' in the red box above and read through all the information including our basic criteria and applying to adopt.
* We are hoping that Russ will arrive on 24th March. However, as we currently have limited foster homes available, the date of arrival will depend on available space if no forever home has been found.
