Our lovely little Ginnie is now ready to find herself a third and final forever home! After coming to us from an owner who was unable to cope with her, we promised that we would find her the most paw-fect home!
Ginnie is a typical bouncy pup who is full of the joys of spring, she was a little shy when she first arrived but she is full of confidence now.
On the lead she can be a bit of a monkey at times, usually when she sees another dog or human the excitement is too much to resist to bounce around but we are working with her and getting her to understand that she can be excited but not act like a kangaroo!
We are also finding her some friendly dogs to make friends with, it's clear she hasn't had much socialisation before coming to us so we are teaching her that although she can play with some dogs we don't greet them by jumping on their heads or paws in their faces. She is doing much better, she could potentially live with another dog who would cope with her energy to teach her but equally she would be just as happy as the only dog with dog friends on walks and to continue her socialisation.
Ginnie's favourite place is the playpen, she has got so much energy and is as fast as lighting when the zoomies kick in! With her clever mind and speediness we have started to introduce her to some agility equipment, it's safe to say she is a tunnel monster already and is mastering the dog walk. Once you can harness her concentration and enthusiasm she could make a cracking agility dog!
We are looking for an active family, one to take her to training classes to work on the areas she is lacking, one to absolutely idolise her and her stunning huge ears!!!
Meet our lovely boy Corey who has come into us from another rescue, to begin with he was a bit shy and had no idea what the lead was for but he has come on a long way already!
Corey's favourite thing is zoomies in the playpen, with or without toys, he doesn't mind and will zoom about as fast as he can with the odd leap round and roll on the floor! If you follow us on Facebook you might have seen a few of his zoomy escapades!
Despite not really sure of lead walks he has now come full circle and really looks forward to seeing that lead because he knows it's his turn for walkies! When he first comes out he can be quite excitable and bouncy (gone are the days of hiding behind someones leg!) but he does then settle and walk nicely.
We are now working on him meeting new people as his shy side does come back but he is going out with new volunteers as much as possible, once he knows you he is your best friend for life.
Corey loves other dogs, he has walked with a multitude of different dogs here and has wanted to play with them all, he has even helped one of our more nervous dogs gain some confidence. Corey could live with another dog but we do think he would be equally happy to be the centre of someones world as an only dog, to relive his puppyhood and be utterly adored as an only dog with just having dog friends out and about!
Overall Corey is just a big dafty with a big heart and loveable nature, he really will make someone a very lucky owner.
Olly has recently come back to us due to a family difficulty which left them in absolutely no other option but to return Olly to our care, understandably they are heartbroken but have given us lots of information so we can help him find a new home.
We originally had Olly after his racing days were over and he was starting his retirement, we are hoping that he finds a home as quickly as he did before as he isn't a fan of kennels especially now having a taste of domesticated living... not to mention finding his love of sofas!
We are ideally looking for a home with no or older children as his previous owners have told us he can be a little possessive with high value items but they have worked really hard to combat this and had made a great deal of improvement. Olly commendably gives ample warning if he isn't happy about a person taking the item from him, he has never been put in a position to take this any further but he will need owners to continue working with distraction and trade going forward.
In the home Olly is as relaxed as they come, opting to spend the majority of the day lazing around snoozing, he is housetrained (though may need reminding of this after his stay in kennels), he travels really well, he is super affectionate and friendly with everyone he meets... his only downside in the home is that he is counter height so no food left on the side is safe from his nose & stomach.
Olly has lived with a cat though he will chase if the opportunity arises but nothing more, he is also good with other dogs though he's not overly interested in them as he's more interested in his walks and sniffs.
We are looking for a home where someone is around a lot as he isn't a huge fan of being on his own, in his previous home he was gradually built up to be left for around 2 hours a day cozied up in his crate with the TV on, so any new owner will need to help him built up to be happy left longer.
On the lead Olly walks immaculately always by your side on a nice loose lead trotting along, his owners have told us he has good recall and some basic commands.
Overall Olly is a gorgeous boy who deserves another chance and will no doubt make someone a very lucky owner to have him.
