Type of home: A calm, quiet home with someone around most of the day. 
Exercise requirements: At least an hour a day.

 

Other information:

 Dudley arrived at the stray kennels very nervous, frightened, stand offish and snappy. It only took him a few days to come round though, and from what we have seen he is a typical bouncy, cuddly, tail wagging youngster who just loves fusses (and treats!). He settled straight in at our kennels and gave the kennel staff plenty of cuddles and kisses!

Due to the information the pound gave us about Dudley's initial nervousness, are looking for a home for him with no children. However he is still under assessment with regards to how he is with other dogs and cats/small furries, and this will be completed after he has had his vaccination in a couple of weeks.

 

Please check back for updates!

Fergie

American Bulldog
(2 yrs approximately) 
At the Kennels

 

 

Questions about Fergie

 

Can be homed with other dogs: No
Can be homed with cats: No
Can be homed with children: No
House Trained: May need house training but she tries to be clean in her kennel
Any behaviour problems: Requires Lead Training becomes extremely stressed by new situations.
Any medical problems: No but this breed is prone to skin problems.
Period of time can be left alone: No more than a couple of hours.
Type of home: a home with a strong confident owner, preferably someone who has knowledge and experience of the breed.
Exercise requirements: At least an hour a day with additional time needed for training.

 

Other information:

 

Fergie has come to us from the pound and is still under assessment at the moment.  Initially though, she needs an adult only home as she is a typcal boisterous American Bulldog.  She is still a young lady so she is still quite mouthy, although she does listen if you're firm and say no.  Fergie is very food orientated which will be great for ongoing training.  She also loves her toys and will happily entertain herself chucking them around her kennel. 

 

Fergie is very undersocialised and has had nothing in the way of training.  She will bark at other dogs as if she is unsure what to do. She also has a high prey drive and will not be able to be rehomed with cats or small furries.  Fergie is extremely strong on the lead.  She has never been taught how to walk properly and she does pull.  She will need a very strong confident owner due to this, as well as some lead training. 

 

If Fergie is left for long periods, she will happily entertain herself by chewing.  She has already chewed up a kong and a dog bed whist at the kennels.  New owners must be prepared for this and must be able to ensure she has plenty of stimulation, chews and toys so this behaviour can be directed to the right things to chew.

 

Fergie needs an owner who has plenty of patience and time and be willing to put the effort in to turn this girl around.  New owners must also be aware that American Bulldogs are prone to skin problems and should take this into account when considering taking on this breed.  Ultimately though, she is a cuddle monster who has the potential to make someone a fantastic companion.  She is great fun to be around and is a complete goofball! 

 

If you are interested in Fergie please fill in the form below and submit it to us.  Please note, that applicats will be contacted after 11th October at the earliest, once she has been fully vaccinated and assessed. 

Marshall

Staffy x Collie
(2yrs Old) 
At the Kennels

 

Questions about Marshall

 

Can be homed with other dogs: Yes - Marshall needs a home with another dog.
Can be homed with cats: No
Can be homed with children: Yes children over 8yrs old 
House Trained: Yes
Any behaviour problems: Counter Surfs & Jumps up!
Any medical problems: No
Period of time can be left alone: No more than a couple of hours.
Type of home: A home with someone around most of the day.
Exercise requirements: At least 2hrs a day

 

Other information:

 

Marshall is 2yr old staffy x collie.  He is a very sweet boy who loves attention. Marshall has been good with the dogs he has met and does need a home with another dog.  As Marshall has a high prey drive, so he cannot be rehomed with cats or small furries.  

 

It is clear that, although Marshall has been much loved, he hasnt had much in the way of rules and boundaries.  He will counter surf and does jump up, and due to his age, Marshall does mouth when he gets excited. However, this does stop when corrected but unfortuantely, we can only rehome to a home with older children because of this behaviour. 

 

Marshall loves being outside and enjoys his walks, he is not a dog that will be content with a 20 minute walk around the block. He may look more like a staffy but he has the needs of a collie.  We can see alot of potential in this lovely boy and with a bit of effort he will be a fabulous addition to a suitable family.  Please only apply for Marshall if you have another dog at home.  Marshall really needs a playmate!

Star

Akita X
(9yrs old) 

At the Kennels

 

Questions about Star

 

Can be homed with other dogs: Yes
Can be homed with cats: Yes
Can be homed with children: Yes, children over 10yrs old.
House Trained: May need house training but she tries to be clean in her kennel.
Any behaviour problems: No
Any medical problems: No
Period of time can be left alone: No more than a couple of hours
Type of home: Needs a relatively active home.
Exercise requirements: At least 1hr a day.

 

Other information:

 

Star arrived from the stray kennels and is still undergoing full assessment.  Star is a typical Akita in the fact she can be aloof, however, she is friendly and will happily greet people.  She also seems to be good with the dogs she has met so far. Star has met the cats in the cat kennels and didn't show any interest.  If anything she wanted to leave the kennels when one of the cats hissed at her.  She has also seen a pet rabbit and didn't show any interest.  

 

Star is 9yrs old but you really wouldn't think it as she is still very active, and shows absolutely no signs of slowing down just yet.  She is in very good health and has fantastic teeth for her age.

 

Star knows some basic commands and will happily sit and give a paw for a treat. She is a lovely dog who walks well on the lead and generally is a great all round dog.  The Akita breed is not normally recommended for first time dog owners, however, Star is an exception to this rule.  She is a lovely dog who would be great for a first time dog owner.

 

  Potential owners must be prepared for dog fur to be in and on everything with this breed.  They do shed excessively and will completely 'blow' their coat twice a year so will need someone who is not house proud and someone who has a very good hoover is a must!  

  

Please keep an eye on our facebook page and website for futher updates as we assess Star.

Jax

Reserved

Beagle Cross
(18 Months Old) 
At the Kennels

 

Due to overwhelming interest, applications for Jax are now closed

 

 

Questions about Jax

 

Can be homed with other dogs: Yes
Can be homed with cats: Still under assessment
Can be homed with children: Children over 12yrs old due to history
House Trained: yes
Any behaviour problems: none shown on assessment
Any medical problems: no
Period of time can be left alone: no more than a couple of hours
Type of home: Active home with owner who can give him plenty of exercise and mental stimulation
Exercise requirements: At least 90 mins of exercise and additional mental stimulation also.  

 

Other information:

 

Jax came to us from our vets where the owners had taken him to be put to sleep due to no longer being able to cope with him. Jax is an energetic, young beagle cross who will need an active home with someone who understands the beagle breed and will be willing to put in a little bit of work.  His previous owners complained of food aggression issues but initial assessment has shown this is not the case.  We have fed him and put our hands in his bowl whilst he was feeding and also taken his bowl away without any issue what so ever.  We will continue this training with him and any new owner will be given a training plan to help prevent this starting in his new home.  Other than that, he is a happy, healthy dog who just needs an owner who is willing to give him enough attention and plenty of exercise and stimulation, which is exactly what this breed needs. 

 

Please check back regularly for updates on Jax's process whilst he undergoes assessment.

DOG ADOPTION FORM

 

PLEASE READ THE BELOW INFORMATION BEFORE COMPLETING THE ADOPTION FORM

 

 Everyone at Willow Dog Rescue is a volunteer and we run the rescue around our current jobs and family commitments.  Recently, we have unfortunately had an increase in time wasters, which then takes our time away from other important charity jobs.  Therefore, we kindly ask that you to only complete the form if you are serious about offering a dog a home.

 

Please think carefully about whether you can commit the time to a dog and can afford the relevant costs that come with dog ownership (food, veterinary treatment, grooming, regular flea / worming treatment etc), as well as speaking to all members of your household about this decision before completing the form. 

 

The adoption form will give us all the information we need to ensure you are a perfect match for the dog you are applying for.  Please answer the questions carefully.  

 

Please only complete the form for a specific dog, as due to GDPR, we are unable to keep general enquiries on file.

 

Unfortunately, due to logistical reasons, we are only able to rehome within a 50 mile radius of the kennels.

 

Dogs who are 'Reserved' on their profile above, have already been matched with homes and are currently on their temporary foster basis pending adoption.  You can still apply for reserved dogs, however, your details will be kept on a waitlist and will be deleted once the dog has been rehomed.

 

Please read our terms and conditions of adoption before applying.
