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.

Breed - Brindle Cross Breed
Sex - Female
Age - Aprox 2yrs
Neutered - Not yet
Dog Friendly - Yes, so far, but not much contact due to current cough
Cat Friendly - Not tested
People Friendly - Yes, very!
Child Friendly - Not tested
House Trained - Yes
Wormed - Yes
Flea Treated - Yes
Travel - Complains briefly, then settles. Possibly more to do with being separated (dog guard) than travel itself.
Food - Dry food with a little wet mixed in.
Fostered - Pencoed.

Sophia has been with us a week now (and I have only just got around to making this thread, apologies!) and has settled well.
She is a very friendly girl and loves a tummy rub, and to sit on your lap.
When she arrived she had just picked up a nasty strain of Kennel Cough, for which she has some medication, and this has helped a lot. Due to this cough she has not yet been neutered or vaccinated.
Sophia knows basic commands, and will sit, stay (mostly) and lie down. She does pull slightly on the lead at the moment but not too much, and will stop if reminded often.
She loves to play ball, and will bring it back and drop it for you to throw again.

Sophia is a lovely girl and will make somebody very happy!

Sophia is currently undergoing a two week assessment and will be available for adoption from 7th June. Applications are welcome now.

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

Meet LOLA
Lola is very special indeed, she has limited sight but she really doesn't let that phase her smile.gif

Image

Breed – Cocker Spaniel
Sex - Female
Age – 4 Months
Dog Friendly - Yes
Cat Friendly - Yes
People Friendly - Yes

Flea Treated - Yes
worm treated - Yes
Travel - Travels fine
Food - Dried Food
Fostered - Risca

Lola would benefit from being rehomed with another dog as she is partially sighted and would cope better with the company of another dog!

Lola came to me yesterday through no fault of her own. She really is a lovely girl and has met my two dogs and also my cats with no problems at all!! Her confidence is growing since she came to stay with us. She was a little timid at first! But within the space of a day you can really see the difference. Today she is very playful and doing all the things you would expect from any pup winks.gif

We went for a little stroll in our local park and she loved having a sniff around and meeting a new friend smile.gif She is happy as long as she is close to you! I did have to carry her over to the park as all the noises were a little over whelming for her understandable due to her limited vision..

Her first night went quite well, although I did stay up with her for a while as she didn't want to settle at first. I then let her sleep with Soxy who gave her the company she wanted, she then settled down and slept till 6am smile.gif She does like company, human and dog alike!!

I will update on her progress as I get to know her better smile.gif Here's a few pic's to keep you going she really is an angle angel.gif


Lola is currently undergoing a 14 day assessment and will be ready for re-homing from the 25th Sept. Applications are welcome during the assessment period. Approved applications will be home checked. Because Lola is just a baby we will be looking to rehome her where someone is around for the majority of the day and where there is a steady resident dog.

I am so cute

Ace is a very sweet (but can be timid) cocker spaniel Boy, and he is also partially sighted.

We want to rehome him with another older (not another pup though) sighted dog, especially as his sight may deteriorate. A lot of things scare him at the moment so am gently socialising him. His greatest love is to cwtch up with you.

He may go blind but 1st and foremost he is a puppy and a cocker spaniel so will have needs applicable to his age, breed and other abilities (or lack of).

03-09-2014
Ace has come on so well, he is very confident loves all people and other dogs, his partial sight does not affect him and he gets on with his daily life most people do not realise he can not see that well. He runs up and down stairs chasing Poppy. Rattle a treat packet and he is there first. He is loving and will sleep cwtched on you lap. He has great recall and just follows the other dogs he will do anything for food. He is totally gorgeous

It is a condition of adoption that he is neutered at six months old

Nelson is currently undergoing a two week assessment and will be available for re-homing from 13th September 2014. Applications are welcome during the assessment period. Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Nelson. Approved applications will be home checked.

Details of our adoption procedures and adoption application form can be found here: http://www.fourpawsanimalrescue.org.uk/ado...procedures.html

30th August

Nelson has been handed in to Four Paws, through no fault of his own, due to illness meaning his previous owners couldn't give him what he needs anymore. He has been much loved by his previous family, who where heartbroken to part with him, and it's clear to see how well he has been looked after.

The first thing to know about Nelson is that he has extremely limited vision. He has a degenerative condition whereby his retinas are gradually degrading. He has been slowly loosing his eyesight for some time now, which means he copes remarkably well with it. It is possible that he can still see some light and shade, although it's hard to tell how much is him following smell/sound and how much is what little he may be able to see. I have spoken at length to the vet who has been caring for him for several years, who says that Nelson is in no discomfort whatsoever and no treatment is needed for the condition.

Prior to coming into the care of Four Paws, Nelson spent around 3 months in kennels so he's really enjoying his home comforts at the moment. He travelled home well in the car, starting out in the front footwell and ending up on my lap by the time we got home! He's still finding his way around our house and garden, so there's lots of bumps on the head at the moment but he is incredibly good at navigation and will follow the sound of my voice across the room without too much issue. Most of last night was spent snoring away contentedly on the sofa, waking up only to eat his dinner. He enjoys his food but isn't at all greedy and takes his time over his meals.

So far, Nelson's house training seems to be flawless - he's gone outside every single time. He spent last night sleeping in the kitchen, separated from the resident dogs to give him some peace and quiet. He didn't make a peep all night long and was clean and dry. He was still curled up in his bed when I came downstairs and didn't seem at all put out by my lie in this morning!

We are looking for a calm and quiet home for Nelson, where he can spend his retirement being spoilt as he deserves to be! While he seems to cope with being left for a few hours, we'd like to find him a family who won't need to leave him very often as he is an old boy who enjoys company. A home as an only dog, or with a calm and steady resident dog would be ideal, although Nelson is extremely dog friendly and remarkably confident despite his vision issues. We are puppy sitting the gorgeous 14 week old Nim today and Nelson has astounded me by taking to her straight away. They have spent the past 20 minutes chasing each other around the garden and play fighting non stop. I really didn't expect that reaction from him, and will continue to assess how he gets on with her today and my two dogs over the coming weeks.

Please don't overlook this wonderful man due to his slightly more senior years and eye sight problems - he is such a cheerful, affectionate and determined old boy, he has totally captured my heart and that of everyone who cared for him while he was staying in kennels. If you think you can offer Nelson everything he needs for the rest of his life, please put in an application - link to adoption procedures and application form are at the top of this post.

1st September

Nelson has been with us for a couple of days now and I'm completely amazed at how well he has settled in. He's such a bright boy and is already learning the layout of the house/furniture - after a few bumps on the head he can now walk from the kitchen through to the living room with ease and with a little help can find the water bowl & the garden doors.

He has been joining us on our daily walks and I really wasn't sure how he'd cope at first - I didn't need to worry! Nelson is so confident and sure footed, he happily trotted along on an extending lead & was so thrilled to find himself surrounded by grass & muddy puddles! He's incredibly resilient - trips and stumbles don't phase him in the slightest, he is always straight back on his feet and off exploring again, making the best piggy snuffle noises ever!

I dont' have a single negative I could say about Nelson - he's so affectionate (belly rubs are his favourite thing ever!) & loves absolutely everyone he meets. He gets on so well with the resident dogs, he desperately wants to play but they're not giving in just yet! He did find his perfect playmate on Saturday though, when we where looking after the very gorgeous 14 week old Husky pup Nim for the day - he played with her non-stop, and every time she walked away he was right behind her coaxing her to play again!


8th September

Lovely Nelson has settled in so well with us, it's really amazing how well he has adapted. He has quickly learnt where the furniture is and can find the water bowl and garden doors without too much difficultly. It's quite amazing to watch him making his way around the room, recognising an obstacle and moving in the right direct towards whatever he is looking for. It's been quite a learning curve for us too - realising the importance of always putting things in the same place to avoid confusion has been the only thing that we've needed to be really aware of. Once I moved a dog bed and Nelson got quite a shock walking head first into something that wasn't there before!

He is still sleeping in the kitchen in the kitchen by himself to give him some peace and quiet from our dogs, but he stays in the living room with them now when we go out and seems happy with that. He gets on so well with them both, and every dog that has visited the house. There has never been so much as a grumble, he is so patient and has a very playful side. He has never made a peep at night and hasn't had a single accident in the house. He's generally a quiet dog, but will let out quite a distinguished, husky bark if he can hear a noise he's not quite sure of.

Nelson enjoys his walks (on lead, for his safety) and is quite an active boy, he can keep up with my two no problem. He does find meeting unknown dogs out on walks overwhelming (he will try to back away from them first, but will give a little warning if they don't leave him alone). It's easy to manage at the moment, and completely understandable that he doesn't want strange dogs jumping all over him when he can't see and is on lead so can't escape.

Hopefully it won't take long for someone to fall in love with our wonderful man - he has so much to give and it is so rewarding to share our home with him.



6th October

Our Nelson is still waiting so patiently for his forever family to find him, he's incredibly settled in his foster home with us but really needs a sofa to call his own! He is such a joy to have around and such an easy house guest, never putting a paw wrong. He has never slipped up with his house training (although he will cross his legs all day if it's raining), he sleeps quietly downstairs with my two dogs at night and copes brilliantly with being left home alone for a few hours.

Typical golden oldie, Nelson spends his days lazing around the house snoozing and pottering around the garden. Meal times are possibly the highlight of his day, this boy really loves his food! As soon as he hears the jingle of a lead though, his little ears go up and he'll trot straight to the front door with his tail wagging. Despite being slightly older, and so chilled out in the house, he's still an active dog and will need plenty of exercise in his forever home. He just loves being out and exploring, his eyesight not at all affecting his confidence in exploring new environments.

Please, please don't overlook Nelson for his more senior years and limited eyesight - you will be missing out on one amazing addition to the family. Nelson is incredibly trusting and affectionate, he makes me smile every day. If you think you can offer him his perfect retirement home, there is a link to our application form at the top of this thread.

Check out that smile!

Elsa is coming to the end of her two-week assessment and will be available for adoption from 11th October. Elsa came to us as a poundie, she was highly recommended due to her wonderful temperament and easy disposition (my 16year old girl Buffy is getting to that stage in life where she likes to be left alone and can get grumpy). Elsa has settled in very well - after a few small accidents on the floor, she is now almost completely house trained. At first Elsa would pace around the house, very unsettled and looking lost, then she found Buffy's bed and suddenly she was 'home'. Yes there is nothing better in Elsa's life now than to lounge on Buffy's bed, legs up, head draped over the edge (Buffy is clearly unhappy with this development!). Elsa is gentle, warm and loving, yet, full of fun and life. She looks permanently happy now, there is always a bounce in her step. She loves us to throw a teddy (also stolen from Buffy) and will sometimes fetch it back, and flops onto her back for a belly rub as soon as she gets any attention. Sometimes she gets overly excited and jumps up, but she quickly calms down. Elsa is respectful of our things around the house, she doesn't chew anything other than her dog chews. She likes her food and loves treats.

When out and about Elsa loves her walks, she has enjoyed cycling and walking, after some initial pulling, she settles into a good walking pace. However, she is easily distracted and wants to go and meet bikes, people, dogs, rabbits, squirrels, butterflies, postmen, ambulances ...almost anything really. When meeting other dogs she is interested, playful and loves the attention given by dog and owner. Initially Elsa's recall was probably the poorest I've ever seen (bring back our foster pup, Seren), she seemed to have one mode, go forward, though she was not running away, she just kept walking and failed to respond to calls or any sort of encouragement (I get the impression that she was a 'latch-key' dog in her previous life - not use to being on lead or confined and happy to wander about at her own leisure). While there is still work to be done, there have been significant improvements - today, for example, we had her walking loose with a long lead attached (just in case!) for 30 mins on a lovely wood walk and she always came back to check on us and even started showing some real nice recall behavior for some lovely treats. However, at the end of the walk, she decided she wanted to stay longer and kept walking towards a main road - until we caught her. Elsa is an active dog who would enjoy a minimum of 45 minutes walk daily.

Elsa is great in the car in that she is very quiet - she isn't always keen to jump in but loves to jump out. Elsa is great with other dogs and I think she would very much enjoy sharing her new home with a friend (as I say this she is sitting on top of Buffy in her bed) but she is also person-focused so would be happy without.

Elsa's new owners would be advised to continue her recall training (possibly taking her to training classes - depending on the owners experience). If you are interested in Elsa please take a look at our adoption procedures and put in an application in the first instance. Approved applications will be home checked.

Sirius came to Four Paws as an unclaimed stray. I have met him in kennels a few times and when my husband and I, and Rumo, took him out for a walk yesterday we had a great time together, Sirius is easy going and no trouble at all. He is a very friendly and kind soul, and a bit needy, so we all felt very strongly that there is no way to return him to his kennel - we brought him home.
Sirius is very skinny at the moment and needs some TLC - and food. He is a very affectionate boy, soft and gentle, behaves well in the house and responses prompt to correction (no kitchen counter surfing, no sofa etc.). He is fully house trained and so far, we have not heard a noise from him. He settles very well and slept through the night. He eats whatever is given to him and almost instantly learned to sit for a biscuit - which results in him sitting around the kitchen with this look of expectation in his eyes smile.gif. He travelled excellently in the car, flops down and just enjoys the ride.
All this really tired him out yesterday and he picked the most comfy looking dog bed for a snooze - even if it was a bit too small:

Benji is undergoing a Two week assessment so will be available for rehoming on the date 25/10/14 applications are welcome as of now.
Benji was handed into Four Paws through no fault of his own. After a little time in kennels Benji has come into foster with us, please keep checking his thread and the comments for regular updates on his progress.

Image

We picked Benji up yesterday, and he travelled back well in the car. After the initial “I’m not getting in the car, nope. Nooooo! Oh, it’s quite comfortable” and a boost, Benji settled in the foot well resting his head on Ellie looking adoringly into her eyes.
When Benji walked into the back garden he was shouted at by the resident dogs… this soon settled when they had a good sniff. Benji stood there then when they were all let of their leads he pottered up the garden after Lexie and Jasper.

Image

Benji then explored the house. He took comfort in Lexie and Jasper being there but mostly followed us from room to room just in case he missed everything.
Benji ate his dinner, and Lexies…and Jaspers! He was a very hungry boy! He allowed us to take the food away so no food aggression.

Image

Image

Last night we all went upstairs to bed, Benji had mastered the stairs by this point. Benji got a little worried when all the doors closed, but soon settled and his quite little cry stopped almost as soon as it started. We heard nothing all night! We think he slept outside almost all of the doors last night.

Image

This morning Benji was very excited with himself, he was clean all night (apart from a few drips – but shh, we wont tell) he ran out the garden and did his business. Benji then went for an explore and what did he find in Lexie’s bed when he came back in? a full rawhide bone! Wow! He ran around the living room then started to munch on it. Lowri saw him and took it off him, no problem! He just looked at her like “aww man! Oh well! TOYS!!” then started throwing toys around the room… he was so excited and glided across the room straight into the patio doors. Benji was catterpulted back across the room! He got up and shouted at the door! – it was so funny! Benji was then a little hesitant when Lowri opened the door for him to get outside after a little cuddle.

Image

Benji went on his first walk with us this morning! Again, he didn’t want to get into the car, but again he settled. We went to Hailey park!
Benji was very excited! He stayed on the extendable lead. Benji was a little picky with who was allowed to sniff his face. He got a little grumpy with a few dogs who didn’t use doggy etiquette. We will work on this whilst he is with us.

Image

Benji has very sore skin, he keeps itching and itching! He has a little bald patch on his back where red skin can be seen.
All in all, Benji is so far a super little dog! Can you offer a forever home to him? If you think you can, please fill in an application smile.gif

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