Maddy

Maddy

Miniature Poodle - female

Maddy can into DCH care after her elderly owner realised that Maddy who is a young and very active pup was just way too much for her to cope with. Maddy is a full of life little pup who loves to run and play and would suit a very active family who have loads of time and energy to give her the life she so needs and deserves.

Maddy is a loving, playful and very excitable little pup and she would be better matched with a experienced family who will give her the on-going training she needs to allow her to mature into a sensible adult. She is house trained and must go to a home that will allow her in to be inside with them as part of the family.

Maddy gets along well with other dogs and is learning to respect cats. She would be better off in a no cat home as she chases cats, not to hurt them but they run and she chases.

Maddy was adopted on 23 June 2014 after 1 week in foster care

Tate

Tate

Collie Rough - male

The first thing that struck me about these dogs is how affectionate to humans they are. Up to now they may have been very badly neglected all of their lives but this has not affected their relationships with humans in any way, actually they absorb every bit of love and kindness that is shown to them and give it back twofold.

They both crave and need human contact. On his 1st day in foster care, Tate tried to crawl into my lap and under my arm. I think if he could have crawled under my skin he would have - he just wanted to get as close as possible simply from being shown attention. Tate really want to please you, he comes when called, and sits when told. He so wants attention and if another dog is receiving a pat he needs to be in on the action.

Gailee takes her cue from Tate, she is always up for pats and scratches but is a tiny bit more independent than Tate. She is very curious and always looking into and smelling everything, but when she does stop, she has this way of just sitting there and looking at you with trust and waiting for you to call her. Being so thin for so long Gailee is very food focused, but her intensity of searching for any morsel of food is slowly diminishing as she comes to depend on her now very regular meals.

Both dogs love being brushed, which I attribute to the fact that they are getting some of the attention they crave. Gailee actually goes into a state of relaxed bliss during grooming time.

Both dogs are ok with cats - but Gailee does get a little too excited (she does not attack the cats in our household but simply wants to get too close and lick their faces which the cats object to.

Both dogs are also very other dog friendly. Tate and Gailee are really great friends and they are willing to be friends with everyone else.

As I type this description, both dogs are lying faithfully by my feet in the office. They would make a wonderful, warming addition to any household.

They need gentle but firm boundaries in a calm household where they will get lots of love and the attention they so crave.

They both came in with major flea dermatitis but Gailee had been neglected so badly that she has lumps down her back and worm her front teeth down from gnawing into her back all of her life. As soon as she came into care she went straight to a vet where she given a injection of cortisone to try to alleviate the red inflamed skin and open sores along with flea and dermatitis control. Her skin is clearing up but the fur may not grow back properly along her back.

Lucy (aka Trixie)

Lucy (aka Trixie)

maltese - female

When Lucy was picked up from the pound she had a very long matted coat from long term neglect. She couldn't even see through her long thick fringe! She went straight from the animal shelter to a local groomer where she was groomed. What a difference hours made to little Lucy!

The pound estimated Lucy to be 4-6 years old but she is very playful, more like a 2-3 year old. She has a small frame, only weighs some 5kgs and has a very gentle nature.

She travels well in the car in either a crate or on the seat next to you. She is fantastic with kids, is so very people orientated and just loves to hang out at your feet. She needs to be with you all the time so you have to make room for her on the sofa and in your bedroom. She is happy to sleep on a rug beside your bed as long as she can sense you are there and that she is not on her own or being locked away from you. While on the computer she finds a spot near my feet and falls asleep.

Lucy loves her walks and is learning to walk well on the lead and as she is so people orientated she is just always happy to stay by your side. She gets on well with her foster carers dog although she is so needy for attention she tries to get all of the pats. She has not had many cuddles in her neglected life and is learning to accept these also she had no idea how to play with toys.

Lucy really craves constant companionship so she'd be best suited to a home with someone home all day or with another dog to give her the company she desperately needs.

Lucy (aka Trixie) was adopted on 21 May 2014 after 4 weeks in foster care

Fluffy

Fluffy

Maltese x FoxTerrier - male

This is Fluffy, very sweet, tiny frame, gentle little boy of 7 yrs. Fluffy was surrendered by his family to DCH on the promise that we would find him a home where he would be greatly loved and cared for.

Well behaved and takes commands reasonably well. Rides well in the car, walks beautifully, loves outdoor adventures, sleeps in or out (always sheltered), house trained and likes to be close by but is not overly needy. He has playful nature with gentle puppy bites and high 5’s. Barks when excited or doing the job of watch dog, he doesn’t mind a small cuddle from time to time either. Seems to be good with small children however I would recommend supervision at all times as Fluffy could easily be hurt by a heavy hand. Fluffy really enjoys the company of other small dogs similar in nature to his own. Ideally we would like to find Fluffy a home with a playmate for fun times and comforting security. Fluffy will need regular grooming and daily brushes, his fur matts easily, he doesn’t mind a gentle groom at all but can get very nervous when bathed. Fluffy is a small boy in a big world that sometimes makes him a little anxious, loud voices and noises like thunder and fireworks frighten him. Fluffy would also suit and active retired couple who are looking for a grand dog to care for and take on small loved up adventures.

Fluffy is cared for at Padstow.

Fluffy was adopted on 17 May 2014 after 2 months in foster care

Archie

Archie

Medium x breed - male

Archie is the most delightful little pup who is great with adults, kids and other dogs. He is a little x breed of unknown origins but the vet thinks he will be a medium size boy. He is a typical pup who is enjoying life and sticking his nose into everything. He has learnt to sit, come when called along with some other basic commands. Archie has a big appetite, loads of puppy energy and is always up for a pat and cuddle. As with any pup he should have puppy school training to further his manners and socialisation. Archie just wants to play all day long although he is very quiet at night and sleeps on a bed by himself with not a peep out of him.

Archie was adopted on 21 April 2014 after 2 months in foster care

Riley

Riley

Border Collie x - male

Riley has been returned to us after 5 years as the family had a child and no longer wanted him around them. Riley is cross-eyed but that only adds to his charm. He suffers from separation anxiety and at the moment will hardly eat because he is missing the family and simply doesn't understand why he has been put in someone elses backyard.

Poor Riley first came into care when he was rescued from the pound when he was around 10 months old, he had been extremely abused and starved (he was the skinniest dog I had ever rescued). Riley slowly began to trust humans, his anxiety issues started to settle and he began to put on weight. At about 13 months he was adopted, and was with his owner for the last 5 years. He gets along well with female dogs, big or small but is not good with dominate male dogs. Riley is scared of cats and stays out of their way. He is fine with older children, but is quite scared of young children. Riley does not like the water and bath time can be a real challenge. All in all, Riley is one of the best dogs you will ever meet, all he wants in life is a family to love him FOREVER, and to take him for long walk.

Riley was adopted on 15 March 2014 after 5 years in foster care
