Hope Rescue is not a rescue in the conventional sense. We are primarily a co-ordinating rescue. Most of our work involves moving dogs from put to sleep or emergency situations. We secure rescue spaces for these dogs with reputable rescues and we will also transport them to the rescue.

The majority of the dogs we deal with are strays from Local Authority pounds which would otherwise be euthanised once they have completed their statutory 7 days.

We also take in dogs for rehoming ourselves via a network of fantastic and dedicated foster homes which enable us to fully assess the dogs in our care prior to rehoming. Details of our current dogs for rehoming can be found below or please visit our website Hope Rescue Website.

Rehoming procedure

All of our dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

We ask for a minimum donation as follows:

£160 , all dogs if old enough are neutered , if not old enough neutering is the new families responsibility.

We have a thorough rehoming process at Hope Rescue:

Completion of our initial Interest Form
Informal telephone chat
Home Check
Meet the Dog
Guardianship Agreement
Follow-up visit (if necessary)

We also have some basic rehoming criteria. Occasionally we can be flexible and this will be detailed on the individual dogs rehoming information:

We do not rehome to homes with children under 5 years unless specified on the individual dogs rehoming information

We do not rehome to homes with existing dogs that are not neutered (unless for medical or exceptional circumstances)

We will rehome certain dogs to full-time workers where specified in the rehoming information, however you must make arrangements for someone to visit during the day e.g. a dog sitter

Prior to rehoming you will be required to visit the dog either in our kennels or foster home together with any other dogs in your family

If you are interested in one of our dogs then you can down load the paperwork from the website Rehoming Paperwork or please ring 07834 525753 (no calls after 9 p.m. please) or email her at dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Archie is a 1 year old Collie and is currently on foster in Aberystwyth, West Wales.

The Archie Fact File

Dog status: Very good
Cat status: Very good
Child status: Looking for older children or adult only home
House training: Very good
Home alone: Has been left for short periods and been fine, this would need to build gradually. Not suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Walks nicely on the lead, comes when called and knows sit. Just learning to play and is ball motivated for further training. He will need work on his confidence and behaviour outside the home.

Image

Archie is a stunning young lad with a sparkling personality to match his good looks. Archie was undersocialised as a youngster and is quite nervous in busy environments which means he can spin and snap. He's much happier in a wide, open space than he is near traffic so if you like long treks in the country and want a companion then Archie may be the guy for you. All things considered, he's an affectionate boy who has the potential to develop into an amazing dog but may never be able to cope with a busy lifestyle.

Image

Archie is in foster with another young dog and has gained confidence having canine company and would benefit from either sharing his new home with another confident dog or he could be rehomed as a single dog. He has been fine with dogs he has met out and about. Archie is in foster with cats and can chase if they run but it’s not in malice. He would do best with confident cats.

Image

Archie can be nervous of new people but has improved greatly and once he knows you inside the house he is affectionate and confident. He is in foster with an older child who is very dog savvy and could be rehomed with similar aged and mannered children. Care would need to be taken though if there we visiting children regularly.

Image

Archie has had some basic training has good recall and his lead walking is improving. He did not know how to play when he arrived and did not show a lot of interest in toys however his foster home have worked hard in motivating him with food and with toys and he is getting the hang of the concept of a ball and loving it. This will be useful for future adopters to continue his training using positive methods and reward.

Image

Archie has only been left for short periods by his foster home and coped fine with canine company. We would not rehome him with full time workers who were out of the home for most of the day but he may be suitable for someone who works part time or is home for the best part of the day. He travels well in the car and shows no possessive behaviour.

Image

Archie struggles with the hustle and bustle of busy life outside the home and while improving this is an area where there is a lot work left to do. He enjoys his walks and being outside in quieter rural areas and slow introductions to new areas with positive training will help him progress further. Archie will spin when he is stressed and will snap when frightened and is muzzled when out in busier areas.
In summary Archie is looking for a kind patient home who can continue to introduce him to new things giving him time to realise that the world isn’t scary. In an ideal world he would love to love out his life on a large country estate!

Image

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption. 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. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Terry is a 1 year old Brindle Staffie cross and is currently on foster in Caerphilly.

The Terry Fact File

Dog status: In foster with dogs but needs some socialisation outside the home.
Cat status: Good
Child status: Loves people and could be rehomed with children over 5 years old
Home alone: Fine being left for 4 hours with canine company.
Basic training: Very good basics and excellent recall.

Terry may be a Brindle Staffie but he is a light unusual version with an amazing personality and expressive face. He is a special lad who is looking for a home who will continue his socialisation and confidence building.

Image

Terry is in foster with 2 other dogs and after some initial settling in issues has improved greatly. He could be rehomed with other dogs with careful introductions or as an only dog. He showed no reaction to other dogs in kennels but has found everything a little overwhelming and he has shown that he can be fearful and reactive to dogs he doesn’t know. So if Terry was to live with another dog there would need to be careful controlled meetings initially and the resident dog would need to be calm and well mannered. As with many fearful dogs if the initial meeting is controlled then his confidence will grow and he will be more likely to accept the other dog isn’t a threat.

Image

His fosterer is working hard with Terry to socialise him in a positive way and ensuring that he doesn’t get scared by loose dogs. Controlling his environment to show Terry that dogs are not scary and that he has a choice to turn away rather than confront and that other dogs mean yummy treats and good things is working well and he is improving every day and even managed a day out at Barking Mad with no issues. His new family will need to continue the gentle introduction of dogs outside the house and the association between “new dog and good things”. Terry is possibly not suitable as a first time dog but most importantly he needs a new owner who is prepared to work with his at her own pace.

Terry is in foster with cats and while he can be excitable he is good on the whole and would be able to be rehomed with confident cats.

Image

So what makes Terry tick – people! Terry loves everybody so much and gains confidence from his humans and adores meeting new people out and about. This means that Terry just wants to please and he learns quickly because of this. He adores cuddles and has been kind and gentle to the children he has met. However, he is not a demanding dog and after some attention and a walk he will happily settle down and relax. As we have no previous history for Terry as he was a stray in the local pound and he is not in foster with children we are looking for a home where the children if present are over 5 years old.

Image

Terry has good basic training now but does still pull on his lead a little. He quickly learnt the basics e.g. “sit” and “down” and has excellent recall. He is also well mannered around the house and is fully house trained, travels well in the car and is happy and waggy at the vets as long as the waiting room is quiet. He has been left for 4 hours with canine company and shown no distress . If he did live with another dog and was given adequate walks he could be left for longer periods and may suit a full time worker with a break in the middle of the day and decent walks morning and evening.

Image

Terry was noted while in kennels to walk with a strange gait in his back legs, more so on the left. Investigations and X-rays ruled out bone and muscular problems and indicate that Terry has a nerve control problem in both rear legs. This has possibly been from birth and causes him no issues and has not shown any improvement with medication. As he is well muscled he copes fine and there is no ongoing treatment and most importantly Terry doesn’t seem to notice.

In summary, Terry needs a home that understands his need for further socialisation but that can see how far he has come in just a few weeks and therefore how far he will go with a little more work. Terry is a lovely friendly lad who loves all people and is a pleasure to have around the house. He has the potential to be an amazing ambassador for the breed and with his desire to please would be great at obedience or Rally-O.

Image

Cherry is a 2 year old staffie cross and is currently in emergency boarding near Porth.

The Cherry Fact File

Dog status: Would prefer to be only dog but may be able to rehomed with larger male.
Cat status: Absolutely no cats please!
Child status: Older children or adult home.
House training: Perfect
Home alone: Can be left for short periods, not suitable for full time worker
Basic training: Excellent – Gold Kennel Club!

Image

Please crosspost and share Cherry as while she initially reads as a difficult dog she has so so much to offer and has come so far in so many ways. She does need a special home and while it will be difficult to find in that home Cherry will be amazing and a joy.

Image

Cherry has returned back into our care and is looking for a new foster or forever home. Cherry spent a lot of her younger life in kennels but once moved to foster settled very quickly and easily into her foster home. She was fostered without other pets in a quiet home with just one adult. She met children and other dogs when out and about and was fine with male dogs and showed no sign of anxiousness with children. She was rehomed almost a year ago to a family home who worked very hard with Cherry but it was in her best interests to return to our care to find a new home. Cherry has the benefit of being one of our most assessed dogs ever!

Image

Cherry would either be best as an only pet or may accept a larger male dog as a canine companion. She has bonded with dogs while in kennels but always towards the big lads with a steady temperament. If we did consider a home with a resident dog there would need to be several meetings and it would need to be an experienced home. We would not rehome her into a multi-dog household or a home with female dogs. Cherry’s behaviour seems to be due to lack of socialisation when younger and will manifest itself as fear aggression towards the other dog or over exuberant rough play which she doesn’t know how to control. She has had behaviourist led positive interactions with other dogs in one to one and groups situations which can be managed but it is clear that Cherry struggles with other dogs in her comfort zone.

Image

Cherry cannot be rehomed with cats or small furries.

Image

Cherry has been fine with people and is good with children but is looking for an adult home preferably or one with older children is a possibility. She has poor self-control when meeting people or when you return and will jump and nip in excitement. Once settled Cherry is loving and affectionate and very people orientated. She has really enjoyed spending time with people in the annexe at the kennels and quickly shows what an amazing dog she is and how much pleasure she has to give. In the right home Cherry will be an amazing addition … even in the wrong environment she has a way of winning people’s hearts.

Image

Cherry worked her way through Bronze, Silver and Gold Kennel Club Awards while in her previous home and learnt: Sit, Down, Stand, Wait, Stay, Recall, Watch me, Walk to heel, wait to go through doorways after the human, wait and sit at the side of the road, wait to enter a car on command, leave food, leave a treat in front of her till told to “take it”, leave/give up a toy during play (tug), come away from distractions, and tricks: Spin, rollover, creepies etc. Her training was all positive training based and used treat or toy rewards and clicker training and she responds well to both. She is a pleasure and a joy to work with.

Image

Cherry is house trained and able to be left for short periods without issues though wouldn’t cope with full time workers. She has not been crate trained as found this distressing but is able to be left in loose without issue. She is not destructive in the home and will always chew on her own toys or a bone if she is bored. She travels well in the car and is fine at the vets. Cherry found living in a busy family home environment difficult and over stimulating especially with children coming and going and a busy road outside. When in foster in a quiet house she was much calmer and able to relax. Ideally we would like a rural home for Cherry where she is able to lower her adrenaline levels enough to allow her to learn some self-control.

Image

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption. 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. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK.

Star is an 8 month old Staffie pup and is currently on foster in Llanbradach, South Wales.

The Star fact file

Dog status: Very good
Cat status: Workable
Child status: Good - can be rehomed with dog savvy older children
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Can be left for a few hours
Basic training: Very good

Image

Star is an adorable young lady who was born in rescue and has been raised in a busy household with various dogs and visitors. Star is smaller than a pure Staffie with Mum being a black and white “piggy” Staffie and Dad a brindle Staffie cross Terrier.

Image

Star is in foster with other dogs varying in age and size and well socialised outside the home and has played equally with all the dogs! She was a typical bouncy puppy who learnt from other dogs to respect their boundaries and is now excellent at reading body language. She would love a forever home where she will have canine company, however, she could also be rehomed as an only dog as long as she has lots of company.

Star is not in foster with cats but has met cats whilst in foster and we believe she would be able to live with cats and other small animals however she would play with them without doubt! Older or timid cats may find her puppy exuberance a little too much.

Image

Star is a confident young dog who is always in the thick of things. She was the most nippy and forward going of the litter and while she is now much better she has not been around very young children so we would suggest that any children in the home are a little older. Star arrived in foster with no training at all but she is clever and biddable and aims to please and has very good basic training as well as being exceptionally well socialised and confident. She travels well in the car and is great at the vets. She is fully house trained and able to be left for a few hours each day. With canine company she may be able to be rehomed with full time workers.

Image

In summary Star is looking for an active home with or without canine company. She would adore having older children in the home to interact with and would excel at the likes of agilty of flyball. Star is smaller than she looks but is ful of fun and energy.

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 HERE and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Bodie is a 3 year old Rottweiller x Dogue de Bordeaux and came into our care via his previous owners. He is currently in emergency boarding kennels near Cardiff.

The Bodie Fact File

Dog status: Previous lived with a female Rottweiler
Cat status: No cats please!
Child status: Adult home or older children
Home alone: Unknown but kennel clean
Basic training: Good basic training.

Image

Bodie has struggled with the move from a home environment living with another dog to kennels and is looking for a quieter experienced home where he has the time and patience to be allowed to come round in his own time.

Image

Bodie previously lived with an older calm female Rottweiler and he could be fostered with another dog. The dogs would need to meet at the kennels initially. He has been fine with all the dogs he has met whilst being in kennels choosing to back away if another dog barks in his direction.

Image

Bodie is a nervous lad and does seem more comfortable with women than with men. We would be looking for an adult home but may consider one with older dog savvy children that understand he needs time and space and may feel threatened initially. Whilst in a busy, loud kennel environment Bodie has snapped at a gentleman that he had only just met who leaned over him. He has recently moved kennels and is far more confident in his interactions now. Actually once Bodie knows you you will be constantly asked whether you want cuddles or kisses!

Image

Bodie has good basic manners and walks nicely on the lead. With people he knows he is a real cuddle monster and whenever you stop for a break will demand cuddles. He travels well in the car and while nervous at the vets prefers to stand back rather than be the focus of attention. Bodie is both treat and toy motivated which makes calm positive based training much easier. He only moved kennels a few weeks ago and is a different dog already. In the right foster home this boy has the potential to be amazing!

Image

Bodie is neutered, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated. He will be microchipped when moved to foster.

In summary, Bodie is looking for an experienced, quiet foster home where he is given time and space to find his feet without feeling threatened. He could share with another dog.

Image

If you can offer Bodie a foster sofa while she waits for his forever home please contact one of the foster team - Nicky (da1sy1), Julie (paddywack), Trudie (trudes) or Leigh (Leighze) if already registered or email Kate on fosters@hoperescue.org.uk to become a new foster home.

Cleo is a 3 year old Staffie cross and is currently in emergency boarding kennels near Porth.

The Cleo Fact File

Dog status: Looking for an only pet foster home
Cat status: No cats please
Child status: Loves people and could be fostered with older children
Home alone: Unknown
Basic training: Good basic training and walks well on the lead. Responds well to clicker training.

Cleo is currently is emergency boarding in South Wales and is urgently looking for a foster placement.

Image

Hope were asked to help with Cleo as she was being kept in conditions where she was at real risk. Before Cleo came into Hope’s care she was kept in a tiny cage with other caged dogs close by and only let out briefly. She was in very poor condition when she arrived and while we were told she would not tolerate kennelling she has settled in well and her condition has much improved, both mentally and physically. She is now very much ready to find a foster home.

Image

Due to being kept in such close confines under such stressful conditions with other dogs in similar circumstances, she is not great with other dogs and will need continued socialisation with other dogs outside the home. This work has begun in kennels but it is limited how far this can go while in kennels. She has weekly sessions with our behaviourist and this support will continue in her foster home. Unfortunately we can only consider pet free foster homes for Cleo at present. Cleo would prefer not to share her home with cats!

Image

Cleo is very much a people dog and loves to have fusses, is very responsive and really good fun to be around. She spends time in the annex at the kennels providing an indication of how she would be in a home environment. Initially she would mug you for treats and then get on with the important task of exploring. Nowadays she is much more laid back and likes nothing more than a tummy rub and cuddle and using the time out to relax. We would consider foster placements with older children as long as they are dog experienced.

Image

Since coming into Hope’s care she has been having weekly sessions with a behaviourist and is doing brilliantly. She walks nicely on a lead and doesn’t pull when she reaches the end. She can be a little hesitant of new noises and places but will sit patiently when asked. She is now much calmer around the other dogs and while we do not allow close meetings between the kennel dogs she will walk well in the group and pass other dogs on the path politely. She is food motivated and responds well to clicker training. She sits well and will offer a paw (whether asked or not). She has always been clean in the annex and is not dirty in her kennel. She travels well to and from the vet.

Image

Cleo is neutered, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated. She will be microchipped when moved to foster.

In summary, Cleo has come on leaps and bounds in the last few months and is now definitely ready for a foster home. She really is a lovely girl who needs to forget her past and move onto a brighter future. If you think you can offer a space to Cleo but want to know a bit more about her first you are welcome to talk to the behaviourist who has been working with her.

Image

If you can offer Cleo a foster sofa while she waits for his forever home please contact one of the foster team - Nicky (da1sy1), Julie (paddywack) Trudie (trudes) or Leigh (Leighze) if already registered or email Kate on fosters@hoperescue.org.uk to become a new foster home.

Lady Mary is a 3 year old English Bull Terrier and came into our care from the local authority Pound. She is currently in foster in Leominster, Herefordshire.

The Lady Mary Fact File
Dog status: Very good
Cat status: Unknown
Child status: Very good; could be rehomed with children 5 and above.
House training: Excellent.
Home alone: Very good but is an active girl. May be suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Very good basics including recall.

Lady Mary was heavily pregnant when she arrived at the pound and was moved to foster to settle before giving birth to what would be 7 boys and 1 girl by C-Section. She and her pups are now looking for new homes with the view of moving mid January. Lady Mary was spayed when operated on.

Image

Lady Mary showed from the first moment we met her that she had a wonderful temperament and she has been a wonderful mum.
She has been great with the resident dogs in the foster home and the dogs she has met out and about. She can be rehomed with or without canine company in her new home. She initially showed some possessive behaviour around the resident dogs but she was a heavily pregnant dog meeting and sharing resources with dogs she had previously never met. This behaviour is no longer evident but a new owner with existing dogs would need to be aware of this and carefully manage feeding times and resources initially.

Lady Mary is not in foster with cats so her behaviour in the house is unknown but she does chase cats outside.

Lady Mary adores people and has shown nothing but affection for people even allowing strangers to come in and handle her puppies. She is happy being touched all over and has been excellent at the vets. She thrives on human company and has shown no possessive behaviour in regards to humans. Lady Mary could be rehomed with children over 5 years old.

Image

Lady Mary has good basic training and has good recall when out and about. She is a strong girl and can pull initially on the lead but when asked to wait she will. It would take a little extra work initially to brush up on the basics and she has the potential to continue learning. Lady Mary is a young, active dog and does need to learn to calm down a little in the house! She will need a new home where she get a minimum of one long walk a day and a secure garden as while she doesn’t jump particularly high she can climb fencing!

While Lady Mary is a real people dog and a social butterfly and is not looking for a new home where she will live on the side-lines, she is happy being left after an appropriate amount of exercise and will just settle quietly in her crate. She would be suitable for full time workers that have things in place to ensure she has the company and stimulation outside working hours. She is perfect in her house training, confident around the home and in new situations and adores travelling in the car.

In summary, Lady Mary is looking for an active home where she can be a real family member and get the attention and love she deserves. She can be rehomed with or without canine company.

Image

A Hope 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. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Cai is a 1 year old Jack Russell Terrier x Dachshund who is currently on foster in Ystrad Mynach.

The Cai Fact File
Dog status: Very good with dogs his own size
Cat status: May be cat workable in the right home
Child status: Good, could be rehomed with children aged 5 years plus
House training: Almost there
Home alone: Will need time left built up. Not suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Learning the basics
Special Trick: Chasing the mop!

Cai is a cheeky chappy, typical terrier through and through. He is full of character and personality who is basically a blank canvas for his new owners.

Cai came into our care via the local vets with a skin condition brought on by a flea infestation. His skin was sore and infected but a course of baths and steroids has calmed things down and he is now being neutered and will start his vaccinations.

Image

Cai is in foster with other terriers and a larger crossbreed and can be rehomed with canine company or as the only dog in his new home. He is excitable around other dogs and forever on the go which may mean that older or timid dogs may not appreciate a young ruffian in the house. He is playful and has no issues with the terriers but if the labradoodle gets involved Cai can be a little snappy.

Cai may be able to be rehomed with cats and was previously in foster with them however it would need to be a dog savvy cat and confident owner.

Cai is confident and friendly with people and has met children of various ages from baby to teenagers. We would be looking for a home with school age children and above as he is on the go so much and may prove to be over stimulated with young children around.

Image

Cai has started some basic training in his foster home but would benefit from some further input. He walks well on the lead and will sit and wait for a treat. He hasn’t been offlead yet out of the home environment and will need some socialisation.

Cai has struggled being left in the home during the daytime even with canine company but is fine crated overnight. At this time he wouldn’t be suitable for workers that work outside the home. Cai travels well in the car, is fab at the vets and while was a little possessive over his toys and food initially quickly learnt to share.

Image

He is crate trained but will bark and whine initially. He is a blank canvas at the moment with regards to training and will need to attend training classes as has the potential to be a wee terrierist if not given enough mental and physical exercise. He is a bright dog who will give back as much as you put in.

In summary, Cai could be rehomed with other terrier sized dogs who are up for a good play session or as an only dogs with lots of human input. He needs further training and socialisation but is bright and clever and will give back as much as his new owners put in if not more.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption. If a puppy is not old enough to be neutered then this must be carried out at the owner’s expense when old enough, and the relevant form completed by the vet and returned to Hope Rescue. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK.

Lolly is a 5 month Lurcher and is currently on foster in Caerphilly.

The Lolly Fact File

Dog status: Excellent.
Cat status: Excellent but needs a confident cat
Child status: Older children please
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Not suitable to be left for full time hours.
Basic training: Good basics, needs some continued training in self-control.

Lolly is a non-stop bundle of fun! A blank canvas waiting for someone to take her forward and show her the world and shape her for the future. We would be looking for a dog experienced home for Lolly.

Image

Lolly is living in a foster home with another Lurcher and a Staffie cross. She has been excellent with both dogs and those she has met out and about. She is a young dog full of fun though so may be best with dogs that aren’t too old or frail. Lolly can also be rehomed as the only dog with lots of human company. She is still young and taking her to puppy class will be a requirement of her adoption.

Lolly is also in foster with a cat and while she wanted to chase it was in play. She is young and is able to be rehomed with dog savvy cats.

Image

Lolly has been great with the people she has met and has been around children from 12 and above. She does struggle with self-control though and will mouth and nip though this has improved greatly. In new situations and high excitement she does revert back. Lolly was a home surrender and came to Hope Rescue for nipping a child in her original home. Due to this we would prefer a home if they have children to have older children, probably 10 plus.

Lolly is still young but already walks well on the lead and has excellent recall. She will sit, stay leave and is beginning to admit she does understand the word no! She will need to attend training classes to keep on top of the training she has had in foster. She is bright and responsive and thrives on praise.

Image

Lolly is still young and adores on human attention and we feel at this stage she would not be suitable for a working household where there isn’t someone in for most of the day. Lolly travels well in the car and has shown no possessive but initially would snap if asked to do something she didn’t want to do. This has calmed down as she has matured and been given choices. She hasn’t jumped garden fences but we would err on the side of caution!

In summary, Lolly is a bright and responsive pup who needed some guidance to tone down the boisterous behaviour she initially showed. She is cat and dog friendly but is young and wants to interact. We are looking for an active interactive home for Lolly where if there are children they are a little older to take into account her mouthing and nipping.

Hope is a 4 month Lurcher and is currently on foster in Pontypool.

The Hope Fact File

Dog status: Very good.
Cat status: Could be rehomed with cats.
Child status: Can be rehomed with children.
House training: In progress
Home alone: Not suitable to be left for full time hours.
Basic training: Blank Canvas .

Hope came into our care from the pound but was diagnosed with Parvo soon after moving to foster and needed to move to isolation. She is now clear of any infection and able to be out and about. We would advise that any resident dogs in the home though are up to date with their vaccinations.

Image

Hope is not in foster with other dogs at the moment but was previously. She has been excellent those she has met out and about and we would have no worries about her being rehjomed with canine companions. She is a young dog full of fun though so may be best with dogs that aren’t too old or frail. Hope can also be rehomed as the only dog with lots of human company. She is still young and taking her to puppy class will be a requirement of her adoption.

Hope is not in foster with cats but is young and has shown no indication that she would not be able to be rehomed with dog savvy cats. She is in foster with small animals and has shown no interest.

Image

Hope has been great with the people she has met and has been around children 5 and above. She will nibble a little but hasn’t shown any concerning puppy mouthing or nipping. She could be rehomed with children or into an adult only home.

Hope is still young and is just starting out on her training. She will need some further work in all areas but gentle positive training will mean she will learn quickly and will build her confidence. She will need to attend training classes to keep on top of the training she has had in foster. She is bright and responsive and thrives on praise.

Image

Hope is still young and adores on human attention and we feel at this stage she would not be suitable for a working household where there isn’t someone in for most of the day. Hope travels well in the car and has shown no possessive or aggressive behaviour. The garden would need to be secure and initially she will need to be shown which toys are hers and which things are precious to you. She likes to chase mops!

In summary, Hope is a bright and responsive puppy who is now ready to find her own home. She is blank canvas and will become what you put in. She can live with children and/or other animals.

Amy is a 12 week old Springer Spaniel and Staffie crossbreed pup, and is currently on foster in Wigan.

The Amy fact file

Dog status: Excellent
Cat status: Very good
Child status: Very good. Can be rehomed with children of all ages.
House training: Still needs a little help
Home alone: Would need someone around most of the time due to her age.
Basic training: Blank Canvas.

Amy is an adorable puppy but don’t let her looks deceive you as she is a typical bouncy pup who will need lots of training.

Image

Amy is in foster with other dogs varying in age and size and has played equally with all the dogs! She is a typical bouncy puppy but when she is told to back off she does. She would love a forever home where she will have canine company, however, she could also be rehomed as an only dog as long as she has lots of company and interaction from the humans in her life and doggy pals.
Amy is also living with cats in her foster home and she does like to play with them although with no malice. Older or timid cats may find her puppy exuberance a little too much.

Image

Amy is a young pup who arrived in foster with no training at all but she is clever and biddable and aims to please. She does get easily distracted by playing though and doesn’t understand yet which things can be chewed and which things shouldn’t! She has a particular curiosity about socks and none are safe when she is around. She still needs help with housetraining but this is improving with a regular routine and regular breaks. She travels well in the car when being held but is a little worried on her own in the crate and is great at the vets.

Image

Amy is a blank canvas for training and will need work in all areas; She is too young to have been out and about on walks and would respond well to positive training methods. She would need to attend puppy classes as a condition of rehoming to continue her socialisation and training. Her foster carers have crate trained her and are working with leaving her for short periods and she is looking for a new home which will continue this work. She will be looking for a home where people are around for the best part of the day.

Bob is a 4 year old Bull Lurcher and is currently in emergency boarding kennels near Blackwood.

The Bob Fact File

Dog status: Very good.
Cat status: No cats please
Child status: Unknown
Home alone: Can be left for part time hours.
House training: Excellent
Basic training: Excellent: sit, down, come, stop etc

Unfortunately Bob is having to return into our care as he has fallen out with one of the other dogs in his home; a larger male. He is fine with all other dogs though! He has lived for a couple of years without issue in a multi-dog household with dogs of various sizes and ages and both male and females. He is also well socialised out and about regularly at meet and greets and attending shows and events around the country. Bob cannot unfortunately be rehomed with cats.

Image

Bob is great with people, meeting new people every week. He has not been in a home with children but has met children out and about with no issue. Due to his size and energy levels we would suggest older children unless dog savvy. In large crowds he may get a little shy but with people he knows he loves his cuddles and to lean on you.


Bob has shown no possessive or destructive behaviour and is happy to be touched all over and will easily give up toys and food if asked. He is quick to learn and so willing to please and has excellent understands sit, down, come and stop. He has previously trained in agility and did really well. It would be great if his new home could continue this. He travels well in the car and has been all around the UK in a motor hom with no issues at all. Bob is fine to be left for a morning or afternoon and would be suitable for fulltime workers.

In summary Bob is looking for an active home with a large secure garden or field to run in or long daily walks. He could share with another dog or be the sole focus in the house.

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. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK.

Buster is a 10 month old Staffie cross, and is currently on foster in Penallta, South Wales.

More details will be added when Buster has been assessed over the next couple of weeks. He is though in foster with another dog and cats.

Image

Whenever a dog comes into our care we ensure that they are with their foster carer for a minimum of 2 weeks before they are rehomed. This is because the majority of our dogs come from the council pounds with no previous history and we need this initial assessment period to see what sort of temperament and personality they have and their needs from a new home. Once this information has been submitted by the foster home we then look at the interest forms we have received in advance and try to make the closest match for the dog’s individual needs. We do not work on a first come first served basis and we do not reserve dogs in advance. Some dogs can have a lot of interest and we try to find the perfect home for each dog.

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 HERE and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Marley is a 3 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback cross and is currently in foster in Penarth, South Wales.

The Marley Fact File

Dog status: Very good; living with terrier
Cat status: May be possible
Child status: Adult home or older teenagers
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Can be left and may be suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Very good but needs further work on nervous behaviour and his car phobia.

Marley is a conundrum.... He in many ways is the easiest and most biddable dogs we have had in foster excluding his car phobia! But he didn’t cope at all well with his move to a forever home. Having spoken to Ridgeback experts and behaviourists in some ways Marley is typical of the breed while obviously being an individual.

Image

So what do we know?

Marley is in foster with a smaller terrier and has also been in foster with a larger male dog. Marley has been fine with both dogs but was a little nervous around the larger male. We feel he would be better with a calmer canine companion and probably better with a smaller dog. Marley has always been sociable out and about with other dogs and has good social skills. He could be rehomed with canine company or as an only dog.

Marley was in foster with a cat though the cat had been living upstairs and Marley downstairs. There was been no reaction when paths have crossed on opposite side of the baby gate! With careful introductions we believe he would be able to be rehomed with cats.

Image

Marley loves people once he has bonded with them although he can show some nerves with strangers initially. When he is settled and confident around his humans this fear of strangers is greatly reduced. He is in foster with older teenagers and enjoys their company though he would struggle with a loud household. He is a strong bouncy dog and has had little interaction with younger children so we would not consider a home with young children. Marley bonds quicker with females.

Marley has a good level of basic training and good recall when off. He has a perfect sit and knows down, wait, stay and will play happily with toys with people, other dogs or alone. One of his favourites is a ball in a sock that he can fling around. He is well behaved at meal times and will sit patiently. He takes offered treats gently but will help himself if food is left unattended. He is housetrained.

Image

Marley has been left in his foster home with canine company and settles down to sleep showing no anxiety. He isn't left with the resident dog so we feel he would be fine left alone as well. He sleeps downstairs with no complaint. He would need a break in the day if left full time hours and a good run before and after work. Howver he did show some signs of Separation Anxiety when moved so would initially need human company while he settled.

He is none possessive over toys and treats and apart from a couple of dog beds being unstuffed has been non-destructive in the home. He is happy being touched all over and will happily share your knee once he trusts you!

Seems perfect?

Well we wouldn’t go that far but almost when he is settled and happy and understood. What isn’t always obvious is that Marley is exceptionally nervous in certain situations. This was initially most obvious in relation to his car phobia. His foster homes have worked on this and he is fine once inside the car but getting him there was a long process. This involved Marley being reintroduced slowly and positively to the car and things were being taken in baby steps before his move to kennels. This phobia started with no obvious trigger though there will have been one. At the moment Marley seems to be fine with cars!

Image

Unfortunately when he moved homes it was obvious that his fears are more generalised than to just the car though he does bounce back in some areas quicker than others. This stage of introductions is critical for Marley as if he is pushed past his comfort levels or exposed to too much too quickly his behaviour deteriorates rapidly. Being exposed to too much too soon resulted in his car phobia extending to all parked cars and becoming over dependent on one person in the new home to the exclusion of other family members. Help and advice will be given but it is critical that his new family understand before he moves how to manage this transition.

In summary, Marley is looking for an active home with previous experience of large breeds in particularly Ridgebacks and the patience to continue his training with positive based methods at his own speed. He would love a home with a large secure garden to charge around.
