Darling Deedee spent her whole life in a garden being bred from and when she was no longer able to breed she was given up to us or the owner said he was going to euthanise her! She had a home previously with someone who also bred her at a young age. It was quite clear from the moment she arrived there was a serious issue with her back legs, it turned out she had a full rupture of her cruciate ligament and meniscus tear in her right back leg. She 

underwent surgery to repair it and began rehab with a physio and swimming alongside regular acupuncture. Unfortunately as she had been left for a longtime her left back leg had been taking all her weight and we were warned it probably would tear to, which it did, so exactly 6months after her first surgery she had a second surgery to repair the left cruciate ligament. The lengthy rehab is now complete and she is now able to run off lead under supervision. She is also happily swimming and undergoing physio exercise to rebuild lost muscles and strengthen her core. Arthritis is likely to have set in but as it would in any dog her age but she shows no signs of it or slowing down, in fact she is catching up for lost time. She loves a toy and will amuse herself in the garden with it, growling at it and barking and then running in circles with it in her mouth. she will lay on the toy if you pretened to steal it from her too and cross her front legs so tight an push her chin down hard so yo can't win it.

 

Behaviouraly Deedee is a very sweet and loving girl once she knows you, she is quite suspicious initially and just needs a little time to feel comfortable. She took a while to adjust to the house and may well be anxious again in new surroundings but now she is very calm and loving , she is crate trained and fully toilet trained. However She is extremely anxious about life due to the fact she never left her previous garden for 7 years. She needs an understanding home with the experience or time to put in to learning how to help this lovely girl we will ideally re home to someone not too far from Surrey so we can continue to offer full support for her training. She is very strong and very excitable which is being worked on but needs patience and the more she relaxes about life the better he behaviour will become. She wants to rush everywhere which is because of her anxiety and she is particularly anxious when she sees people or dogs in the distance out walking, This needs ongoing work and because of her rehab we have only just been able to start addressing how to help her rather than avoid everyone in fear of her slipping or bouncing which would have ruined her surgeries. When she sees dogs out walking she can not currently meet them as does not want to be very nice and she is quite vocal with whining because she is so anxious about it. However she lives in a home with 6 other dogs and 2 or 3 others who visit and change on a weekly basis and she does very well with correct introductions, She loves young boxers and boxer puppies. She is wary of other breeds initially but we believe this can all be worked on and she will improve with more time and training. She adores playing with a toy and lives for a game of tug(although we have had to be careful to date due to her surgeries)Deedee does not look or act her age. Deedee really needs her own home with someone ideally with some land or large garden.She really deserves her happy retirement home.

If you are interested in Deedee please fill in our adoption form and make a note its 'Deedee' you are interested in.

ROXY

Name: Roxy

Gender: Female 

Age: 8years

Colour: Brindle & white

Good with Cat: No

Good with children: Has had a child grow up with her but needs home with children over 16 due to nervousness. 

Good with dogs: Has been living with another dog, ignores dogs and would rather not interact in most instances especially doesn't like dogs in her face, could live with calm dog

Lovely lady Roxy needs a new home due to a marriage break up. She is very loyal and affectionate to her family, however she lacks confidence and is wary initially of people  she doesn't know but she does come around quickly if you allow her a little bit of time to suss you out. She is slightly more wary of new men. She is mostly walked off lead and happily passes people and dogs without much interest. She isn't interested in new meeting people or dogs and likes her own space. Her recall is excellent and she never strays far from her owner.

Roxy needs an understanding family that will accept her initial wariness and will help build her confidence in the things that concern her. She can be defensive on lead if people/dogs approach which can be improved with good handling. She is extremely playful and loves to entice you into  game. She does have some slight separation anxiety which can be worked through but she will initially need a family who are flexible and can be home to settle her whilst she adjusts to a new life.

If you are interested in offering Roxy a loving and patient home please fill in an adoption form and put 'interested in Roxy' at the bottom.
