Other Dogs Needing Homes

These dogs are with other rescues. If you are interesting in giving one of these dogs a home please contact the rescue that he or she is with.

Name: Dusky

Sex: bitch

Age: 6 years

Information: Dusky arrived on Monday, another unclaimed stray. She is thin and needs to fatten up which she will do so with the help of the extra meals she is being given. When I spoke to her fosterer Pauline today to find out how she has settled in with her, I was told very well and at that moment in time sprawled across Pauline’s lap. She is about the size in height of a Collie and six years old. She has got on very well with the dogs she has met. She is quiet at night and tomorrow will be left for a short time to see how she copes with being alone. Probably, like most Lurcher types she will have a sleep. If you may be able to offer a home please call Helen at Dorset Animal Workers on 01202 380467.

   

Name: Ed

Sex: dog

Age: about 2 years

Information: Ed (named after Ed Sheeran as apparently he was on the radio at the time of choosing a name!) is a lovely, affectionate, gentle lurcher boy, about 2 years old. He has been a perfect house guest with his foster brothers Taylor and Snoop. He is house-trained, gentle on the lead, happy in his crate and good in the car. Desperate to play with his mates but unfortunately Taylor and Snoop can’t really be bothered! Ed loves a cuddle and will try and sneak on to the sofa given half the chance. If you would like to offer a new home for Ed, please contact Dorset Animal Workers on 01202 380467 and ask for Helen

   

Name: Riley

Sex: dog

Age: about 3 years

Information: Riley is a stunning male lurcher who is around 3 years of age. Riley is a quiet, calm boy who isn’t particularly interested in playing and is much happier spending most of his time investigating with his nose. He’s a very sweet natured boy, who is partial to a cuddle and a fuss, but will potter off to do his own thing once he’s had enough. Riley doesn’t really seem to know any commands; and although he does enjoy treats even the use of them hasn’t brought forth any knowledge of them, so we would recommend starting from scratch to teach him the basics. Riley appears to be sociable with other dogs, however he has NOT met any cats whilst here with us. He is able to go to a home where any children are 5 years +. If you may be able to give Riley a home, please ring Foredowne kennels in Devon on 01803 872260. RESERVED

   

Name: Rogan

Sex: dog

Age: young adult

Information: Rogan was in a dog pound and his time was up. He gets on extremely well with other dogs, walks gently on the lead and has a gentle nature. He is nervous of new people and in particular men at first and we think he has not been treated at all well in the past. A really nice, sweet natured boy. If you may be able to offer a home please call Helen at Dorset Animal Workers on 01202 380467.

   

Name: Sadie

Sex: bitch

Age: young adult

Information: Sadie was in the dog pound with Rogan and her time was up too. She is also a sweet natured and gentle character. She gets on very well with all the dogs here. On her walks she likes to bounce down to play with the dogs she meets. If you may be able to offer a home please call Helen at Dorset Animal Workers on 01202 380467.

   

Name: Tina

Sex: bitch

Age: 9 years

Information: Tina is a Whippet cross who is 9 years old. Tina is good with other dogs and excellent off the lead. She is a quiet girl and likes nothing better than to curl up in a comfy bed after her walk – usually with either Bono or Holly nestled in next to her. She is mothering Bono at the moment who has a bad eye. If you may be able to offer a home please call Helen at Dorset Animal Workers on 01202 380467.

   

Name: Willow

Sex: dog

Age: about 15 months

Information: Willow is looking for a home. He is around 15 months old and gets on with dogs and children. Willow is still in his juvenile stage so patience needed for training. Everything is a game to Willow. Saying this he does sleep a fair bit which is the Lurcher thing after a good walk. Kelly who is fostering him will update on his progress as he settles in with her. If you may be able to offer a home please call Helen on 01202 380467 Update from fosterer Kelly on 7 March 2018 Since Willow has been here he has been very lively and playful. He loves playing with toys and little Scooby, although Scooby does need to put him in his place at times as willow can be boisterous and seems unaware of his size! He travels well in the car and behaves very well in public, he loves (and needs) a good run off lead, his recall is very good and he has no interest in any animals roaming on the forest. Willow is still a young dog and needs someone to continue his training and reinforce that jumping up isn’t acceptable and sofas aren’t for playing on! He’s a big softy who will be a very loyal dog but still has a lot of growing up to do! If you would like to offer a new home for Willow, please contact Dorset Animal Workers on 01202 380467 and ask for Helen.
