What a handsome boy, and lucky enough to be having a wonderful life! Whatever mixture he is he's certainly gorgeous. Wish we'd had a DNA test on our old dog - he was a Staffie cross, but it would have been interesting to know what else was in the mix.

After such a long time and with so many changes I thought it was time to update you on Harry.

He is now 7 (middle aged!)

Since the last post, we have moved house and Harry now has another job. He is meeter-greeter on our local foot ferry. He loves all of the attention, gets lots of cuddles. Although don't get on the ferry if you are not up for an affectionate ear nibble (from Harry!!!). He loves the ferry, you'll see from the photos below his favourite position is at the front, it just like Titanic!



We have also got a new campervan. We recently went to Scotland and Harry woke up on a different beach every morning - Harry Heaven! As usual, our holiday snaps are mostly of the dog!





We also did a DNA test on Harry just for fun. We were told that he was probably Border Collie/Lab. He definitely has Border Collie in him but we thought there must be something other than lab. Well, the results came back as 50% Border Collie (no surprise there) 25% Springer Spaniel and 25% Staffie. Well, we would never have chosen and collie x springer (that's just suicide!!!) so we think that the Staffie must calm all that down. He is great with children and does the staff talking too. Other than that we can't see staffie in him. It would be really interesting to hear from his siblings to see what traits they have grown up with, or if any of them have had a DNA test too. The results didn't matter to us we love him whatever  :D

Moved to another rescue.
No sorry, we don't know his mix  :)   He's moving into foster with Joy so there will be more pictures and a homing thread soon.
Any more photos of him?  What's he crossed with?
Is he very big?  He looks super!

The minimum adoption donation for Bertha is £165.

Bertha came into my care a month ago.  I have to admit offering to foster her was against my better judgment. I don't "do" bull breeds.  I felt sorry for her  that she was becoming so thin in kennels so thought maybe I could offer respite for a week or so to feed her up a bit.  I didn't count on meeting the sweetest most loving pooch I have ever known. 

She looks a bit odd. My postman described her as a bulldog on steroids. She is an awkward shape.  And she is a big girl.  She barrelled into the house on her first day, had a good sniff around, found the corner where she likes to sleep and plonked herself down.  She has been 100% clean in the house since day one.  On the times I've had to leave her, she just curls up and goes to sleep, nothing disturbed or moved whilst we are out. 

She sleeps on the settee in the lounge at night.  She does seem to suffer from nightmares,  a few nights a week's she wakes with a start and runs around the house making a bit on an odd noise, but she will then settle by herself.  She also doesn't have a bark, just a gruff noise she makes when she is saying hello,  or if food is around!  Talking of food, she loves it!  As she needed to put weight on I am feeding her 3 times a day.  She has increased her weight to 25kg, and could ideally be 27kg. 

She would ideally be suited to somebody with a big garden who can give her a little gentle exercise through play in the garden.  When I have walked her on a lead she pulls a lot and strains her joints and then becomes very stiff for a day or so.  She is prescribed a joint supplement and a small amount of painkillers  to keep her moving.  I happen to live in a bungalow so we don't need to worry about stairs, but I don't think she would be able to manage them well. As she us happy to sleep downstairs this shouldn't  be an issue if she isn't allowed to try and get upstairs.

So, I've told you the bad points but please don't dwell on those.  She is the sweetest friendliest dog, who greets all our visitors with a snuffle and a kiss, is clean, quiet, happy, and without doubt the easiest foster I have ever looked after.

Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Bertha. Approved applications will be home checked.

Kennel Dogs Looking for Permanent or Foster Homes / Rocky - gorgeous Spaniel X
« Last post by DextersMum on July 15, 2017, 14:45:39 PM »
This handsome boy is Rocky who has been relinquished into our care through no fault of his own.    He's 2 years old and has been with the same family since a pup.  Not neutered or vaccinated yet but will be before rehoming.

He's a good all rounder and is fine with other dogs, children & cats.
