Jess

Jess

Greyhound - female - 11 years and 4 months

JESS is 10 years old and loves to stand up and give you cuddles at every chance she can. She is great with little (and big) dogs as we have a little jack Russell who loves to kiss and play with JESS all the time .

Jess is a typical greyhound and has her 30 seconds of energy bursts then is a total lounge lizard for the rest of the day. An extremely loving girl who needs someone to love and care for her during her twilight years.

Jess has grown up around little children and currently lives with one at her foster home and she is great with them. she will basically let them do anything with her.

Jess will chase small animals like rabbits and chickens, so a home without that temptation is best. Jess is very healthy and will fit in easily to most households.

Jess has been in foster care since 11 January 2016, for 1.3 years

ramsay

ramsay

greyhound/kelpie cross - male - 11 months and 3 weeks

Ramsay is a very sweet, affectionate desexed boy who came with very little formal training but his willingness to please makes him a very quick learner. We are currently leash and obedience training him and he's doing very well. He responds very quickly with food/treat rewards, pats and praises. He is a timid boy though....one firm 'no' is enough to chastise him. More than that is unnecessarily cruel (very greyhound-like in his sensitivity).
He seems to get along with every dog he has met although he came to Liverpool pound with bite marks to his leg and needing stitches to his face so it was apparent he had been in some sort of a scuffle. I've purposely been careful to put him with easy going/non 'agro' dogs to boost his confidence until those memories have faded as he is a timid dog.
He loves to be inside and next to his favourite humans as much as possible and would make a very good companion dog. He's fully house trained. He also enjoys some time outside in the sunshine but sleeps in the house.

ramsay has been in foster care since 28 March 2017, for 1 month

Benson

Benson

Labrador x Staffy - male - 3 years

Benson is an exuberant and very friendly 3 year old Lab/Staffy cross. He has been with the one family since a puppy, grown up around young children (including a baby) and is very loving and gentle.

House-trained, de-sexed, vaccinated, chipped and healthy, Benson loves to run and play with other dogs at the park - but he’s also very content to cuddle with his people of an evening. He currently sleeps inside at the foot of the bed and loves car rides, but could be more obedient on the leash when walking.

He has lived with an older cat (that suffered his playful sniffs with dignity) and he has happily spent weekends staying with friends dogs. Benson doesn’t need “rescuing” as he is not in foster care, but he does need a home that can give him the regular exercise that he needs and deserves in order to be really happy, ideally with energetic children or another dog.

Boof

Boof

German Shepard cross Boxer - male - 2 years

Boof is a 2 yr old German Shepard cross boxer. He is up to date on all vaccinations, worming and flea treatments.

He is desexed and has no known health problems, he deserves a wonderful home.

He is very obedient and responds well with hand signals , clicks and words .

Although he is very well living with a house cat he will still chase neighborhood cats, if he is left for long periods of time he may dig.

He loves fetch and the water but hates showers, he is good on the lead and is very loyal, he has never had any aggression towards me or other people but it is advised to new people being introduced to be weary as he may bark and slow actions really help. Once you chuck a stick for him he will be friends with u for life, he has been protective in the past and becomes slightly agitated as his current owner saved him from abuse from a male handler from a previous owner.

**This is an assisted private rehoming. Boof is looking for an Urgent new home can can provide a loving home for him. Inquiries welcome through to Ben who will put you in touch with the current owner.**

**If anyone is willing to foster this dog, please also contact Ben**
