Brad is a 4 year old Staffordshire bull terrier and is currently on foster in Treharris, South Wales.

The Brad Fact File
Dog status: Good out on walks but would do best as the only dog in a new home
Cat status: Unknown
Child status: Good, could be rehomed with children over the age of 8 years
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Has been fine for the short periods he has been left by his foster carer
Basic training: Very good

The cold winters nights are drawing near and what better way to warm yourself up than cuddles on the settee from Brad. This is one loving, tactile and adorable dog. Do not miss out on the chance to be his new family. Brad has settled very well in his foster home after a long time spent in kennels. He has shown himself to be house trained, good on the lead, good with other dogs out on walks and a confident and well socialised dog.

Image

Brad is the only dog in his foster home but was assessed in kennels as needing to be the only dog in the home. He was very bonded with Sally an older Staffie who he came in with but unfortunately in a home environment they struggled together. Out and about though Brad has been fine with the dogs he has met. He will grumble at rude dogs that come over a little too quickly but generally has coped very well. Brad will not be rehomed with cats.

Brad is great with humans; adults and children. He adores meeting new people and being made a fuss of and is kind and gentle with the children he has met. Brad is not over demanding and not a bouncy dog that is in your face but will politely ask for attention and enjoys just being with people.

Image

Brad has a good level of basic training; he walks well on his lead and will sit and wait for food. He has shown no destructive or possessive behaviour and travels well in the car. He is house trained and chooses to sleep downstairs at night. He has now been left for a couple of hours and has shown no sign of being distressed or upset. That being said he would not be rehomed with a full time worker as we do not know how he would react to being left for longer periods especially as he will be the only dog in the home. He is not looking for a new home where he will be ignored and side lined. Brad has spent a long time in kennels and he deserves to be included in a family homelife now and get lots of love and affection.

Image

In summary Brad is looking for a new family unit who don’t have any other pets but are looking for an affectionate uncomplicated companion for long walks and cosy evenings. Brad is one of the most grateful dogs we have seen and has bucket loads of love to share.

Morris is an 8 year old Lurcher and is currently on foster in Cwmbran.

The Morris Fact File
Dog status: Good, can be rehomed with other dogs.
Cat status: No cats please.
Child status: Older children or adult only home.
House training: Very good.
Home alone: Has been left with canine company. May be suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Good basics and very biddable.

If you are looking for a true family dog then look no further, Morris is your man. He is a gentle, affectionate, fun and active dog who loves to be at the centre of a busy family. He moved into his foster home without a fuss and has been an easy dog to live with.

Morris is in foster with 2 other Lurchers, male and female, and settled well with both and will initiate play sessions with both. He has been fine with dogs he has met out and about and with the dogs at kennels and will back off from confrontation. Morris would love canine company in his new home especially another sighthounds. We would be cautious rehoming him with small dogs. He could also be rehomed as the only dog if he had plenty of human company to keep him entertained.

Morris cannot be rehomed with cats and has an unhealthy (for the small animal) interest in small furries.

Image

Morris loves all human contact and has shown no signs of nervousness around males or females and will get an ear scratch from whoever offers. He is not in foster with children but has shown no issues when out and about. As Morris is older we would prefer a home with either teenagers or an adult only home.
Morris has good basic training and walks perfectly on a loose lead; well unless there is a cat when he will pull until asked to leave. He has not been offlead in foster and we would suggest caution for the future as we believe he will be prey driven. He is an easy dog to have in the house and has learnt his new name quickly. He is responsive to positive training and eager to please. We do feel that he has been subjected to harsh handling or training in the past as will cower if he things he has made a mistake. He is none possessive and not destructive in the home and apart from some scent marking initially house trained.

Morris must have a secure garden in his new home with 6 foot fencing as he is a jumper! Baby gates are no challenge and while he didn’t clear 6 foot he was close when he saw a cat manage it! He also has the potential to develop as a seasoned counter surfer if given the opportunity.

Morris has been left with the other dogs in his foster home and has been fine and we do feel he would be fine to be rehomed with full time workers as long as there is canine company. He would need a break in the day and appropriate exercise and company out with these hours.

In summary Morris is a very sociable dog who has settled into foster relatively easily and is now ready to find his forever family. He could be rehomed with or without canine company and in the right environment would be suitable for full time workers.

Pudding is a 2 year old English Bull Terrier and is currently on foster in Caldicot, South Wales.

The Pudding Fact File
Dog status: Very Good
Cat status: Very Good
Child status: Very good, could be rehomed with children aged 5 plus
House training: Perfect
Home alone: Can be left, may be possible for full time workers.
Basic training: Good basic training.

Pudding hasn’t put a paw wrong since arriving from the pound … she is a gorgeous, cuddly, playful girl who would fit in just about anywhere.

Image

Pudding is in foster with a Staffie cross and she has slotted in with him really well although they do have the typical noisy rough housing play! She has also met dogs at the kennels and outside the house and there have been no issues. Pudding could be rehomed with canine company or as an only dog. Pudding is in foster with a cat and could be rehomed with cats.

Image

Pudding loves people and is a very tactile and loving dog. Pudding is good with adults and with all the children she has met, she could be rehomed to a family with children aged 5 years plus. She has met visiting children but is not in foster with children.

Image

Pudding loves to be out and about on her walks exploring the world and would like an active new home where she will go on varied walks and adventures. Having said that she is not a demanding dog and will cuddle up quietly or snooze until it is walk time. She was a little overweight when she came in which she has started to lose. She has good basic training and walks well on her lead and has good recall. She is food and praise orientated.

Image

Pudding has been left in her foster home and has shown no signs of stress. She has shown no possessive or destructive tendencies. She is more agile than she looks and will require a well fenced garden. With the right amount of exercise and input she may be suitable for full time workers.

In summary, Pudding could adapt and fit in to any new home as long as she received a lot of love and attention.

Cougar is a 1 year old Border Terrier x Pug who is currently in foster in Penarth.

The Cougar Fact File
Dog status: Good; but can be OTT in his play style
Cat status: No cats please.
Child status: Good; could be rehomed with children over 8.
House training: Very good.
Home alone: Can be left for very short periods. Probably not suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Knows the basics but he is a bright dog and would love to learn more.

Image

Cougar is in foster with another terrier and does benefit from having canine friends to burn off his energy. He can however be a little OTT in his play style and some dogs will take exception to this. He could be rehomed with or without canine company but with another dog they would need to be tolerant.

Cougar is not in foster with cats but did spend the first 24 hours in a foster home with cats and was far too interested! Due to his boisterous nature we do feel a o cat home is best.

Image

Cougar loves people and a fuss though he can initially bark a little, showing he is not quite as confident as he may seem. He could be rehomed with children but we are looking towards children that are definitely school age as he can mouth and does need some work on his self control initially.

Image

Cougar is an active dog who is always up to something! He walks nicely on the lead most of the time and is very well behaved when there is the chance of some titbit on offer. However he does struggle with his self control and will need a calm patient owner that can spend some time working positively in toning down his behaviour. Cougar seems to have had no boundaries in his life before coming to foster and has improved greatly … he now no longer jumps onto the table at dinner time! While there is some work to do he is bright and able to learn.

Image

Cougar has been left with canine company and has been fine however we do think he would struggle with full time working hours, primarily by getting onto trouble. He will and does steal items and they can get chewed and become precious items! He will need appropriate items to chew and would benefit from mind games as well as a good amount of daily exercise. He is house trained and travels well in the car.

In summary, Cougar is a terrier cross who is looking for an active home where there is someone in for most of the day. He does need some work and consistent training to tone down his “naughty” behaviour!
