DONALD

NAME:Donald

AGE: 7yrs 1 month

COLOUR: red & black

NEUTURED: Yes

DOGS: Has lived with a dog, not recommended to love with dogs now.

CHILDREN: Over 14s only due to his bouncy nature.

Handsome Donald is in need of a new home due to  his family moving abroad. He has been living with another dog but his owner and we feel he would be best as an only dog unless a very good match. He is quite under confident and expresses himself in over exuberance.to hide his lack of confidence. He can be quite protective of his house and property so needs someone who will understand this when having guests around and help him relax and use a safe place for him to go too. This can likely be worked on in a new environment but his new family will need to be willing to put some effort in to it. He mostly ignores other dogs on a walk unless large dogs bark at him and then he can feel a bit defensive again and be quite strong so a family willing to put some time into understanding this and helping him learn to ignore even in these situations. 

He is big and bouncy so no small children, he doesn't know his own size and strength. At the end of the day he loves a cuddle on the sofa. The ideal family would have time to help him feel settled and put in some time to with our trainer to help him with the few little issues so he can live his best life.

If interested in him please fill in an online adoption form and comment that you are interested in 'Donald'

FRITZI

Name: Fritzi

AGE: 7yrs 11months

COLOUR: white with brown spots

SEX: Female

Neutured: yes

DOGS: mostly good but not to live with

CHILDREN: Good but over 12s only

CATS: not good

Fritzi's family are moving abroad and can't take her with them. She is a very sweet natured girl. She has been in her current home since she was 3 yrs old and had previously never been taken out of her garden. She now enjoys her walks and causes no problems on the lead. She is mostly good with other dogs but like most dogs can dislike the odd one and be quite strong . She enjoys a dip in the sea when warm enough too. 

Fritzi does have some allergies for which she is on steroids, unfortunately these have made her put on lots of weight which we hope to address and find a family for her willing to follow diet instructions to get her back to a healthy weight. 

She can be left home alone for 4 hours without any problems, she adores humans and craves their attention so would be best as the only dog to be center of attention. She loves a cuddle and tickle and will lie on your feet or on the sofa. We are assessing Fritzi's allergies further to see if there is more were can do to get her steroid dose down and will be looking for a home willing to do their best for this gorgeous girl.

Boxer Rescue will pay for veterinary fees for her.

Please fill in aan adoption form and comment that it is 'FRITZI' you are interested in.

SASH

Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary currently have a female Boxer cross in their care. We are told she is wonderful, she's 9yrs old, in good health apart from having some age related arthritis which she has medication for. Sash is also a resource guarder which they are easily managing at the sanctuary.

They would love to find Sash her forever home, but sadly have had little interest despite posting on social media etc and have asked us to help by posting here.

If you are interested in Sash please contact Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary DIRECT: https://oxfordshireanimalsanctuary.org.uk/adoption/dogs/sash/
