Emily is a 2 year old Romanian Crossbreed who came into our care last year. She is currently in emergency boarding kennels near Porth.

[attachment id="1197"]

Emily isn't in foster at the moment but we have a comprehensive kennel assessment and her 2 siblings have now been rehomed. Emily will be rehomed as a Foster with a View to Fail dog to allow her to settle into a home environment before an adoption is finalised.

The Emily Fact File

Dog status: Looking for an only pet foster home
Cat status: No cats please
Child status: Adult only home preferred
Home alone: Unknown
Basic training: Will need to go back to basics

Looking for a quiet foster home with no other dogs, Emily will be possibly the most rewarding foster dog you could imagine. Although worried of new people, new things and in particular strange men, she tries so hard to please and to get over her fears. She does this with a lot of silly "talking" to make it clear when she is not too happy, but yummy treats help her to forget her worries. Once you are in Emily's inner circle she rewards you with so many cuddles and kisses that it is the best feeling in the world.

Image

Emily was not socialised appropriately as a puppy and while she isnít aggressive she is inappropriate with other dogs and a bit of a bully! She will roll dogs over, pin and growl and our concern at present is that resident dogs would either not put up with her or be scared of her. As she is worried by humans as well it is difficult to correct this behaviour so it is better for now that she is not put in position where it will be reinforced. Once settled and more comfortable she would benefit from play dates and socialisation with other dogs. Again Emily is not aggressive to dogs out and about. Her lead walking is improving but she is still worried at times and will go from prancing around to asking for reassurance if something scares her.

Image

Emily is not doing brilliantly in kennels and really does need a foster sofa - she loves females and while still cautious about men is coming round quicker. Itís amazing to watch her gain in confidence from the people around her - if she is with a group of people she knows and trusts she will happily greet a stranger as long as they are calm and wait for her to go to them. She really needs to get into a foster home where she can start to get used to day to day life and start to meet new people slowly and on her own terms. Emily is so cuddly with you once she knows you and will give proper hugs and it would be so very rewarding to watch her progressing. Emily has been let down so badly in the past and it is time for her to move onto a new life.

Image

Emily is one of three dogs that originally came over from Romania aged 15 weeks. They are now almost 2 years old and had always lived in a kennel environment. Milo and Lady have moved to homes that have the time and patience to bring them on and while it wasnít easy it was rewarding and they have much more confidence and loving dogs after a short amount of time. Emily is under socialised and will need an experienced carer who can bring her on at her own pace without rushing her. We also need to make it clear they have just arrived in our care we and did NOT import them ourselves. We categorically do not agree with the importation of EU dogs but these are here now and in need of help and we will do our very best for them.

Image


All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. We have a suggested minimum donation of £160. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded [a href="http://hope-rescue,..com/index.cgi?board=policy&amp;action=display&amp;thread=21146"][font color="Red"]HERE[/font][/a] and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Leo is a 3 year old Staffie and came into our care from the local authority pound. He is currently in kennels near Cardiff.

Leo isn't in foster at the moment but we have a comprehensive kennel assessment. Leo will be rehomed as a Foster with a View to Fail dog to allow him to settle into a home environment before an adoption is finalised.

The Leo Fact File

Dog status: Would prefer to be only dog in the home
Cat status: Unknown but can be tested
Child status: Excellent
House training: Clean in his kennel
Home alone: Unknown at present
Basic training: Good mannered

Image

Leo is a typical Staffie lad Ė desperate for human company and a bundle of pent up excitement at your arrival Ö treats or cuddles? Nothing better than a waggly bum trying to stay on the floor when every muscle is primed to leap up and smother you in kisses! Once that initial excitement has gone though he is content to settle down Ö preferably leaning against you or on you!

Leo wasnít impressed at being in kennels initially and became bored and used his time to the full by destroying anything that could be destroyed! However since moving to one of our other kennels he has calmed down and is a pleasure to spend time with and much more houseproud! He is now happy to chill out in his kennel and has shown what a wonderful companion he is.

Image

So what makes Leo tick?

Well he definitely loves his toys and adores his Boomer Ball!
He also loves his food and will give the bestest sit and paw if there is an offer of a treat!
Leo loves to run around and have fun in the paddock; to feel the grass under his feet and the sun on his back

But none of these things come close to Leoís real passion and thatís people. Leo adores people, any people! Leo would love a home where he has his own people and would adore a family with children, especially if they want to play footie.

Image

Unfortunately soon after moving to kennels there was a falling out between Leo and one of the ďBig BoysĒ with Leo coming off worse. This means that right now Leo needs to be the only dog in the home but please donít let this put you off as Leo really is a fabulous lad who does his best to please. We can offer behavioural support for anyone interested in rehoming or fostering Leo. This will explain how to overcome his fear of dogs and how you can help him build his confidence and learn how to interact with other dogs in a positive manner.

Image

So yes Leo needs some basic training and some consistency and boundaries but he is bright as a button, motivated by food and desperate to please. Most of all this lad needs a chance Ö a chance to show you how well behaved he is and how much love he has to give.

Candy is a 4 month old Terrier cross, possibly Border or Patterdale Terrier. She is currently on foster in Hull, East Yorkshire.

The Candy Fact File

Dog status: Very good.
Cat status: Good will chase to play. No malice.
Child status: Very good.
House training: Good
Home alone: Can be left for short periods but we would like a home where someone is around for the best part of the day due to her young age and natural need for companionship
Basic training: Learnt the basics but would benefit from training classes.

Candy is a little pocket rocket. She adores life and finds the world an exciting and interesting place to be explored at top speed! Her enthusiasm and lust for life is infectious and she will make the most wonderful, comical companion to brighten your day. We donít know what she is but she is still terrier sized both in stature and personality. Most of all this little lady is very very affectionate and turns into your little shadow, she is loyal and will melt your heart on meeting her. She will be a brilliant hot water bottle for the winter months always on your lap, chest or neck (scarf) as soon as you sit down, occasionally sitting on her if she gets to your seat first. Whoever is lucky enough to have Candy as part of their family will never be cold or lonely, so come on peeps who wants a Candy hug?

Image

Candy is living in foster care with other dogs and is a confident wee puppy who hasnít found a dogs yet she doesnít regard as a playmate. She can be quite enthusiastic in her play and maybe goes a step too far but will take a telling off well and is learning doggy etiquette. She has now learn which dogs are up for a session of play and which to ignore. Candy is very vocal generally and when she plays she makes lots of noise, some of which sounds aggressive (yaps, snarls and loud growling) but is just part of her play. She could be rehomed with or without other dogs in the home.

Candy is in foster with cats and small furries. She is young and likes to chase but there is no malice. She settles down quickly when in their company and has been caught sleeping with the cats. She has also been in with the Guinea pigs and while initialy excited quickly realised they were quite boring!

Image

Candy is in foster with an older child and has met children out and about with no issues. She could be rehomed with children as long as they realise that although she is small she is not a toy. Older children would be ideal in matching the playful adventurous nature of a terrier!

Candy's house training is coming along nicely for her age but she will need a little help. She can be left for short periods, however, due to her young age we would like a home where someone is around for the best part of the day. She travels well in the car and hasnít been phased by any day to day activities or noises. She has good basic training and knows how to sit and is getting used to a lead. She has good recall Ö until there is a distraction! Candy is not a particularly nippy puppy but she is a chewer so will need lots of appropriate toys to direct her attention onto.

Image

In summary, Candy is a young adventurous puppy and is always getting into some sort of mischief. She loves being around both people and dogs and could be rehomed with or without either. She is an active little girl and responds well to positive training and would revel at being in a bust home environment. She is quite terrier-y and so her new people should understand some of the delights of living with a young terrier.

Puppies need to be neutered at their new ownerís expense. Neutering is a condition of adoption and something we follow up to ensure it has been completed.

We do not rehome puppies to full time workers

Puppies must also be taken to training classes and this will be followed up. If you do not know of training classes in your area please research this before you contact us about rehoming.

Charlie is a 6 year old Staffie and is currently on foster in Port Talbot.

The Charlie Fact File

Dog status: Very good.
Cat status: Unknown
Child status: Very good
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Could be rehomed to a full time worker.
Basic training: Very good but will pull on the lead.

Charlie came into our care when her elderly owner went into hospital and later passed away. Charlie has obviously been loved in the past and has had good basic training before coming into Hopeís care. She settled quickly and easily into foster but is now in need of a permanent home.

Image

Charlie is in foster with other dogs and has met dogs when out and about and has been great with all. She could be rehomed with or without canine company. Unfortunately we donít know how she is with cats.

Charlie has been great with the adults and children and loves his cuddles and sharing a sofa with her humans. She is in foster with children and could be rehomed with children 5 and above.

Charlie is house trained, travels well in the car and none destructive (well except for cuddly toys but itís in the roolz that their eyes need removing!). She is fine being left and would be suitable for full time workers as long as she got a break during the day and attention outside those hours. It should be noted though that at present she is in foster with other dogs.

In summary Charlie is a fabulous dog who would suit a range of homes from someone retired to a full time worker. She could make a lovely family dog if the children are old enough to be sensible. She could live with another dog(s) and would equally be ok as an only dog.

Lilly is a 3 year old small terrier and is currently on foster in Stevenage.

The Lilly Fact File

Dog status: Excellent
Cat status: No cats please
Child status: Very good
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Can be left with no issue.
Basic training: Very good.

Lilly is everything a terrier should be, bright, enthusiastic about life, comical, loving and fun; a tiny bundle of terriorist! Unfortunately due to a change in her owners circumstances she needs to return into our care and is looking for a new home.

Image

Lilly has not lived with another dog for the last few years but is sociable and well mannered when meeting dogs out and about. She was initially fostered with other dogs without issues. She could be rehomed with or without canine company. She would not suit a home with cats unfortunately.

Image

Lilly is very people friendly and loves to meet new people. She hasnít been living with young children but she could be rehomed to a family with children. We would be looking at children 8 and above really.

Image

Lilly is an intelligent dog who has excellent basic training including obedience and rally classes. She walks well on the lead and while her recall is not 100% she will take direction and change direction when you do! She has great manners waiting for her food and to cross roads; most of the time she will do as asked! She shows no destructive or possessive behaviour.

Image

Lilly travels well in the car and takes vet visits in her stride. Not much phases Lilly including fireworks and hoovers; you can vacuum right round her! Lilly settle well when left alone and will chill out in the house when there is nothing exciting happening. She would prefer a home worker or company during the day but would be suitable for part time workers, maybe full time workers with canine company. Lilly likes to feel warm and does feel the cold sow ears a coat or jammies in the winter and loves to sleep under a blanket.

In summary, Lilly is a healthy happy well mannered dog that loves her walks, loves to run and play but also loves to sleep and snooze in the sunshine.
