We are a small independent charity who try to help any animal in need - those that are unwanted or in danger. Primarily however, we tend to take in and rehome dogs, which is where our expertise lies. However, when we do receive cats and other small animals we may enlist the help of other more specialist rescue organisations if we can't rehome them ourselves. We pride ourselves in a non-destruction policy. As far as possible we try to foster dogs in a home environment where they can be assessed and cared for without the stresses of kennels. All our animals receive veterinary care if needed, are vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, microchipped and if old enough they are neutered. Any pups rehomed will be neutered at 6 months of age at the owners expense - this will be a condition of adoption that will be followed up. All prospective new owners are homechecked.

We can only do this with your continued support and are in urgent need of local foster homes and fundraisers, even if it's just spending an hour helping at a Meet & Greet. Find out more on our volunteering page. Find out what we are up to here.

Some of the dogs that we rehome come to us from the local pound. The pounds that we work with have a Put-To-Sleep policy if we are unable to find a rescue space for the dog, once it’s time is up. This makes the task even harder. If we do not have spaces ourselves we will work with other rescues to give these poor dogs a chance of a happy life. We also rehome a number of dogs and cats that have been handed in privately to us.

We rehome dogs countrywide as long as we can find someone in your area who can perform a home check and you are prepared to travel to where the dog is fostered.

We will update more as we get to know Nala.

Nala with her sister Dotty

Beautiful Nala has been with us for just over 2 weeks now and has really come out of herself, she has been very quick to learn that if she goes outside to toilet she should get a treat when she comes in so will sit by my feet until she gets her treat. She also sits on command now :-) x

Nala will benefit from someone who is active as she is always on the go, we also insist on puppies taken to puppy training and I think Nala will benefit and really enjoy going to classes. She's a very bright little pup.

I can't believe Nala is still waiting for her forever home. She's a beautiful girl who will love you forever x

20th January

Darling Dolly (was Rita in kennels) arrived in foster with us today - she has come to Four Paws as an unclaimed stray so we know nothing of her history. She is a shy girl and is still finding her feet at the moment, the past few weeks will have been very confusing and scary for her. She's met resident dog Dizzy very politely with no issues at all and was a total angel throughout her bath. She seems to be housetrained so far with no accidents in the house at all and following Dizzy's lead out in the garden. She's nudged a few toys with her nose & earlier when I rolled a tennis ball at her she stopped it with her paw, picked it up and carried it around the room for a few minutes. She gave it up easily when I took it from her but wasn't interested in fetching it again. I think she'll be a playful little lady once she feels secure enough to show us.

She spent her first few hours pacing around the room, sniffing everything in sight & jumping at every little noise but she has now started to settle down. She's picked out her favourite bed and seems very happy to curl up for hours snoring her little head off. Dolly doesn't seem to have any basic training, but loves food and treats (which she takes very gently from the hand) so once she grows in confidence I'm sure she'll be a quick learner. She's only had her name for a few hours so doesn't know it yet, but she is very alert & responds to the sound of my voice. She is a shy girl and needs some time and help to build up her confidence. She is very affectionate & will nudge her nose under your arm for a cuddle, but startles quite easily - sudden movements & noises will make her jump. I'm sure she'll settle in soon & learn she's safe.

21st January

Dolly's first night with us has gone really well - she's been totally clean and dry in the house since she arrived & slept quietly in the living room with Dizzy without issue. I'm sure this gorgeous girl must have been loved by someone once - her housetraining seems solid & she definitely knows leads mean walks! She was a much brighter girl this morning - I got a lovely waggy tailed welcome and a lovely cuddle. Dolly really is such an affectionate girl. If she's feeling unsure or something has spooked her she looks for reassurance from the nearest person & will stand on her hind legs to bury her nose into you. She really don't seem to like walking through doorways, especially if someone is nearby but she'll get over that in time.

We took Dolly to the vet this morning for spaying & as she has been with everything else, she was a total angel. She travels beautifully in the car - she sat on the back seat with me & was either snuggled up to me or curled up by herself. She certainly didn't seem too put out by the trip. She walks quite well on the lead, she's not particularly strong but will pull a little to get to the all smells that need smelling & does tend to zig zag from side to side. She responds well to being called back to my side & seems to be picking up her new name already.

Dolly's been home from the vets for about an hour now & has spent that time curled up next to me on the sofa fast asleep, waking up every now and then to try and investigate her stitches. Otherwise, she seems well in herself and quite cheerful considering. The vet has given her a good check over & says she seems in good health, aside from quite a build up of wax in both ears which is being treated with a course of ear drops.

Here she is in the car this morning, all smiles:Image

16th February

Darling Dolly was re-homed at the beginning of February but has now been back in our care for just under two weeks. Dolly is a nervous, shy girl and on her first evening in her new home managed to escape through the front door. She was missing over night and found the next morning sadly hit by a car. Luckily her physical injuries where minimal (a fairly nasty friction burn to her front leg and a quite a bit of bruising to her hind quarters & abdomen) but thankfully nothing more serious than that and nothing physically lasting.

Here she is about an hour after arriving back with us - she was extremely bewildered, sore & stressed but her gorgeous tail wagged as soon as she saw me and she stood up for the first time since the accident to walk across the room for a drink of water.

Image

For the past two weeks, Dolly has been on a course of pain relief, anti-biotics & TLC. The bruising has faded, the friction burn almost completely healed and she is no longer hobbling around with a limp. The emotional trauma from her ordeal however, will take longer to work through and Dolly will need ongoing help and understanding from her forever family.

She was a nervous girl before the accident and easily spooked by loud noises, sudden movements or strangers but her confidence grew every day she was with us. Understandably, this progress has now been set back with a few new issues. The main thing that has been affected is how Dolly copes with being left alone. Within the first few days back with us, it became clear that she was finding it difficult to settle on her own and was letting us know by barking and crying when she was left, toileting in the house and some destructive behaviour. We moved her sleeping area to the kitchen (as it is the safest place for her with no access to anything at all that she shouldn't chew). She now sleeps in there in her favourite bed with an old blanket of mine (so that she has something that smells like me), the radio on a talk station, a small light on & several tough toys (including a kong toy stuffed with goodies) and some nights a rawhide type chew to keep her entertained and take out any anxiety on. She is responding to this routine brilliantly well & after several sleepless nights trying to ignore her cries, she is now settling down well. I no longer have to tell her to "go to bed" - she trots in quite happily and waits, tail wagging, for a treat. She will whimper to herself in the initial half hour or so after being left, but it's not loud and no longer progresses to a bark. It is highly likely that she will take a few steps back when she moves on to her forever home, but she will improve and settle down if she has a consistent routine with a family prepared to continue to work with her.

Dolly has been clean in the house for about a week now and there is no doubt she understands that the garden is her toilet (her house training was 100% flawless before she left). I think her only issue is that she just can't control herself if she's feeling stressed or vulnerable. Now that she's relaxed back into our routine, we have no issue with her house training at all and I am confident this would be the same in her forever home - she will just need some time to settle. When she's called out the garden, she canters out with her tail held high & runs a few laps of the garden before returning to the same patch of grass every time to do her business & comes running straight back in when called.

Prior to the accident, Dolly absolutely LOVED her walks. She could be quite strong on the lead on the way to a walk (although not difficult to hold on to, even for me who's a bit weak and used to walking a Cavalier!) and can zig zag a bit from side to side. She always wore a secure harness when outside & was kept on an extending lead to work on her recall (which is pretty good) and because she will spook if there's a sudden noise or a stranger appears. She always transformed into a different dog when she got outside, running circles around me & play bowing to our Dizzy dog. We haven't yet taken her out since she came back to us, initially as she needed time to recover from her injuries and for the past few days we've just been letting her relax and feel more confident. It is highly likely that she will have some concerns with traffic as a result of the accident. Later on today, we're planning to take her out into the front garden, on lead, for a few minutes to see how she copes and will build up from there. I'm hopeful that her trusting relationship with us & her love of "walkies" combined should help her and we'll update when we know more.

Dolly is coming out of her shell with every passing day (just now she was rolling around on the sofa, batting the cushions with her paws and making grunting noises - she stopped abruptly when she realised I was watching, but it's still progress!). She is an affectionate girl and remarkably trusting despite everything she has been through - she's smitten with Matt and has him wrapped around her paw, just one puppy dog look at him and he melts winks.gif! She loves her food and treats, she had developed a habit of devouring her meals in seconds since she has come back into foster with us, but is slowly learning that each bowl of food will not be her last. She is slowing down every day and has even left a few bits of food in the bowl if she's not hungry in the past few days (unheard of a week ago). She will let you put your hands in her bowl, stroke her or take the bowl away while she's eating with no issues at all and she takes food from the hand very gently.

Dolly is going to need a special home, with a family prepared to continue her journey to being a confident girl. We would like a quiet environment for her with no children (she wouldn't cope with noise & activity), ideally with a calm resident dog for her to watch & gain confidence from. In time, she will need a good walk every day as she is an active dog with energy to burn. Initially this must be on lead only until she is confident and trusting enough to be let off, which will take time. We would like to find a family that are able to be around as much as possible, only leaving her for a few hours here and there and who are prepared to continue to work on her separation issues. Applicants will be required to come and meet Dolly more than once in her foster home, to give her a chance to get to know you prior to adoption.

If you feel you are able to offer Dolly what she needs, please put in application (bearing in mind that she will be on hold for a little while longer while we fully asses her) - you will be rewarded with a loyal and affectionate friend. This girl is one tough cookie, we are amazed at her ability to bounce back and trust so quickly after the difficult life she has had so far. She is a special lady and I have never known a dog more deserving of a safe and loving home, it's about time she got to enjoy a sofa that will be hers forever.

Less than 24 hours after arriving back with us, Dolly was already settling right back in:

She's an affectionate girl who adores her cuddles:

And she adores her foster brother too:

Ella is friendly girl who has had a rough start in life. She's received little or no input before coming into Four Paws, but despite everything she is a delight. She will make you laugh all the time. Super character, friendly, energetic in short bursts them loves to cuddle up, by or on you for a snooze. Eats well, crate trained.

She is dog friendly but can be quite playful and may be too much for some less playful dogs. She sometimes also barks at unknown dogs but we are working with her on this and feel it is due to lack of socialisation in her early months.

Stevie (lady dog 8)) came into my foster care a few days ago and has already made quite an impact! She is such great company, and if there are two words to describe Stevie - they would be GENTLE GIANT!!

At just over knee height, she's a fairly large Labrador cross, but her temperament is soft and loving!

Image

She's toilet trained, knows how to sit, gives you her paw, loves to go for "walkies" off the lead, and likes nothing more than lots and lots of cuddles. She loves being around people, and Im sure she would make an excellent addition to any family.

Stevie lived with the same loving family for 7 years, but sadly their circumstances changed, and they were no longer able to look after her. She was brought to Four Paws to find a new loving home. Could that be you?

Tootsie

Image


Breed - Yorkie x (possibly an Australian Yorkie)
Sex - Female
Age - 4 Years
Dog Friendly - Yes
Cat Friendly - Not tested
People Friendly - Yes - nervous until she knows you
Child Friendly - Not known
House Trained - Not completely but doing well
Spayed - yes
Travel - Travels well in a crate (I always transport fosters in a crate)
Food - Good eater, mainly dry
Chipped - yes
Fostered - Blackwood Area

The minimum adoption donation for Tootsie is £150.

Tootsie has been with me a month being assessed and will be ready for rehoming from today. Applications are welcome during the assessment period.

Tootsie came to me after doing her time in the pound, she was absolutely terrified of everything in the house & garden, for the 1st week she hid in the kitchen & only crawled on her belly, she has done soooo well & now joins us in the living room & enjoys being stroked, she gets on great with my 4 Yorkies & my other foster, she wasn't house trained but will now go on papers by the door, she toileted out the garden for the 1st time yesterday smile.gif, she won't walk on a lead just yet but I'll keep trying.
Tootsie was spayed on Wednesday & the vet was appalled by the state of her insides, he reckons she's had "multiple" litters in her 4yrs :'(, my impression is that she's possibly been kept in a shed & bred from.
Tootsie is such a loving gentle girl who has learned from watching my gang that there's a whole new world with kind people in it & she soooo keen to have more of it, it's been heartbreaking to see her struggle to trust us & there's a lot more work to be done with her but she's worth every minute & will make the most fantastic companion.
I'd like a very secure garden even though she's shown no sign of wanting to escape over the wall (about 4ft) but holes low down may be a problem, if something frightens her she tends to run back in the house. We think she may be an Australian Yorkie - we saw one on Crufts just like her & the vet agreed :-*

13th March.
Tootsie is continuing to make progress smile.gif, a friend visited me today & at first Tootsie barked at her but 2 minutes later was enjoying having a fuss smile.gif, Toots is quiet all night & can be left for about 3 hours, I think she'd like to live with another doggy companion as she gets a lot of confidence by watching my gang, she seems to want to play with mine but is a little unsure how to play, she looks at the dogs then at me as if to say "I'm not sure Mum" sad.gif


Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Tootsie. Approved applications will be home checked.

Boo has been with us just 2 days, he is currently undergoing a two-week assessment and will be ready for rehoming from 19.03.14. As we get to know Boo we will add to his profile, for now we can say:

Boo was a scared boy when he was in the pound, he was so frightened he could only be caught and moved by using a pole and loop (needless to say this made Boo even more frightened and hesitant). When Kirsty went to pick him up all it took to get him in the van was a little patience, a calm handler and lots of tasty treats. Very quickly Boo was won over and happy to be collared and led away. He was also a very good boy at the vet, allowing them to give him his first vacs and do an all over checkup without any fuss. This poor chap has clearly had a hard time of it before coming into the charity - he is very underweight, has some dry and scabby skin (now being treated) and generally needs good care. Since coming home with us Boo has gained confidence and is settling in well. Today he actually decided to fetch the toys I was chucking and is really enjoying all the attention now (at first he was a little hesitatant). He is also begining to relax on the walks and is interested in everything, especially picking up sticks. When fed he gobbles up his food, but today was happy enough to walk away from it to see what I was doing in the garden. He is very focused on us, so his recall is great - he was off-lead for the first time today, which went well. He has also met some of my neighbours while off the lead in the back lane and was very gentle and relaxed with the attention. He has been fine with my own female dog, being a male he has been interested in sniffing her whenever they are together, but leaves her alone when she walks off. Otherwise, he will take treats nicely beside her and is fine when she recives the attention. A lovely gentle boy, but still jumpy and prone to falling back to being a little nervous - we are looking forward to getting to know him better. Every day he relaxes a little more and shows us another lovely side to his personality; we're already confident that he'll recover well.

Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in adopting Boo. Approved applications will be home checked.

Well hello! Naomi and I have just got our first foster - Bob!

Image


Breed - Labrador Cross
Sex - Male
Age - 2
Dog Friendly - Yes
Cat Friendly - Yes
People Friendly - Yes, very
Child Friendly - Not met any yet!
House Trained - Yes, sometimes needs encouragement to go before bed
Travel - Travels well once in the car, but can be stubborn getting in and out.
Food - Yes please, as much as possible. Keep an eye on him!
Fostered - Pencoed
Minimum Adoption Fee - £150

Bob has been micro-chipped and has had his first vaccination. He is currently undergoing a 14 day assessment and will be ready for re-homing on 3rd February.

Bob was a little quiet for the first day or two, but is slowly getting used to life with us.
He likes his walks, especially if he meets other dogs, but sometimes needs persuading to leave the house in the first place. He is friendly with everyone; people who come to the door, people he meets on a walk, he loves to make friends.
Bob can be a little jumpy if you move too quickly, but as he settles in more he seems to be getting better.

He loves his food, but when asked to; will sit and watch while we eat rather than trying to get at our food as well (most of the time!)
When Bob arrived he would look blankly at you if you asked him to sit, he is now learning to sit on command unless there is a major distraction.
He is in his element with other dogs and loves to play with them, however he appears less interested in toys and playing with humans, but does like to be near you. Bob is also learning to come when called which works unless he's too distracted by nice smells!

Now that Bob has been with us a few days he has started getting a little excitable at times, trying to climb onto anywhere with the slightest whiff of anything edible, even if it is long gone! He has barked a few times since he arrived, but only when he thinks he is missing out on something.

Bob loves a cuddle and will happily sleep on your lap if you let him! He has his own spot on the sofa and keeps to it well, as trying to keep him off completely was proving difficult!

He is a gorgeous dog and would make a great family pet!

Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Bob. Approved applications will be home checked.
Details of our adoption procedures and adoption application form are available by clicking here

Update: Bob has come a long way since he arrived two weeks ago, today he even waited to eat his dinner until he was told he could!

He really does seem to have settled in well. His favourite part of any day, other than mealtimes is definitely going to the park to meet some other doggy friends.

Bob is responding better to being called back, though this evening it was like he had forgotten everything he had learnt! He is definitely improving overall though.


Update 01/04/2014
Bob has made some good doggy friends who always look forward to seeing him. He loves to play, and is happiest when with other dogs.
He can play quite boisterously sometimes, but is always careful with smaller dogs and young dogs, and will leave a dog alone if they obviously don't want to play with him!
Bob is now quite good at sitting and waiting, and waiting to cross roads. He also has started going into the stream near where we live, although he hasn't swum yet, he loves to paddle.

Waiting patiently for Dinner

Millie and Milo came to stay with us last Saturday. They have lived together for the last three years. Although they do not behave as a “bonded pair” they do look for each other when they disappear in different directions in the garden. They both need the company of other dogs so we believe they should stay together.

Both Millie and Milo walk well on the lead but recall? What is recall anyway?

Millie has an upset tummy at the moment and is having a course of antibiotics. You just put them on your hand and she picks them up and eats them.” It’s so easy”

They love to be on your lap and usually curl up together. It’s interesting to note that Kai lets them get on his chair and lets them cwtch into him. There are not many fosters allowed that privilege.

They sleep together in the kitchen without a sound and often need waking up in the morning.

Lady has had an operation on her eyelid, so will not be available for rehoming for approximately 2 weeks until she has recovered from the surgery. Applications are welcome during this period.

Lady has come into the care of Four Paws through no fault of her own. She is a little nervous at the moment, but is growing in confidence every day. She is the most perfect house guest, she sleeps quietly through the night and is first up in the morning to greet you when you come downstairs. She loves her walks and loves to run around with the other dogs, her recall is excellent. She sits in a row with my three and takes treats very gently smile.gif
She has visited the vet and is the most gentle patient.
I cannot fault her, she is a ready made perfect dog angel.gif


Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Lady. Approved applications will be home checked.

Details of our adoption procedures and adoption application form are http://www.fourpawsanimalrescue.org.uk/ado...procedures.html

16th Feb
Lady had a nice afternoon yesterday at the Paws4Tea, she was a little overwhelmed by all the people, but I was very pleased with her. She is such a sweet and gentle dog and she met everyone and every dog with the same good manners angel.gif.

Today Lady has had great fun running around the fields with my dogs. When she first arrived, she just trotted around, but she seems to have discovered how to run fast now! She is great with my horses too, she comes with us all to feed in the morning and evening and knows the routine already ;D
Here she is in action in the sun this morning.

and waiting patiently at the gate to go to the next field, doesn't she look happy smile.gif
Image
part of the gang!

20th Feb
Lady continues to be a joy to foster, I did say she was faultless, but there is just one fault..... she loves to carry my slippers around and often I can only find one ;D
She is adorable though and is getting more confident every day. She has been shyly asking my dogs to play with her today, the first time she has tried to play at all, it was lovely to see smile.gif
Here she is with her mate Russ yesterday out in the field.

10th March
Lady had her operation on her eyelid last week and she is doing really well. She is so easy to look after, she even takes her tablets very easily ( wrapped in cheese or ham!).
Here is a picture of her last week before the op, playing tuggy with Russ

22nd March
Lady has had a busy time since my last update. She has had her stitches out and was absolutely fabulous at the vets. Paul could not believe how still she lay while he took the stitches out from very close to her eye. She has an amazing temperament angel.gif
She came with us on a transport run along with little Eric Terrier ;D As usual, Lady was superb! she travelled perfectly
in the van, she sat and waited patiently while we sussed out a pub for lunch and then sat quietly under the table while we had lunch (and appreciated the odd chip ;D as did Eric!). She is still a nervous girl, and when I first got her out of the van, she spotted a few young, noisy children and jumped straight back in, bless her.
She has worn her cone with good grace, she never tried to get it off and has worn it 24 hours a day (I have been so careful with her so that she couldn't scratch or rub her eye).
The last few days she has had her cone off smile.gif she is loving bombing around the fields at full speed again with my dogs and playing chase and tuggy! She takes so much confidence from my dogs, she is very much happier around them.
I really feel she needs a doggy companion in her new home, I have walked her on her own and she is nervous and doesn't enjoy it very much.
She has loved some longer walks in the woods the last two days and is so different from the scared girl that first arrived. She sticks to Shamus her foster brother like glue, but she has her tail up and is happy explore all the things that Shamus does. Her recall is excellent and praise when she comes back makes her a very wiggly, happy girl!
Here a few photos from her walk yesterday.

27th March
Why is this girl still waiting for her forever home??? She is perfect! She is fully recovered from her eyelid operation and is really enjoying being able to play with my dogs again. Her recall is perfect, her manners are perfect, her temperament is perfect, she is perfect with dogs, cats and horses, she is a cuddle monster, she travels perfectly, she is so kind and gentle.
How perfect can she be? angel.gif

30th March
Lady has had a very busy weekend! Yesterday she came to Machen Rural Market to help us fundraise. She was so much better than her first Four Paws outing smile.gif, she met people with a shy wag of her tail and took several treats off people. She met lots of other dogs and enjoyed that, she was also very good while I ate my hot dog (so good, she got a bit too).
Today she met a few ducks waddling along by a pond while off lead, she was quite curious at these strange things, but came running back as soon as I called her angel.gif Her recall continues to be excellent, I wish Shamus Hound was as good....
This afternoon she met an 8 week old pup and behaved with the same good grace that she always does;D
I keep forgetting to say, Lady gives lovely hugs! When you are sat down, she likes to put her paws around your waist and puts her head on your shoulder, she is sooo sweet ;D

5th April
Lady has had a very busy day at the Game and Country Fair at Fonmon Castle today ;D along with her foster brother Eric.
I am a very proud foster mum, Lady met loads of people and took treats off them, she was lovely with children too. She walked through the crowds and sat with us on our stand and although still a little nervous, she was soooo much better than when she first arrived with me smile.gif The difference is incredible, she enjoyed her day and wagged her tail a lot.
The highlight for me was taking her in the Fastest Bonio Eating competition and she won paws down!!! She was brilliant in the ring and sat waiting for her Bonio so politely angel.gif
