Available for Adoption

**** ROGUE IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ****

Applications closing Thursday 19th April 2018

Rogue came to us through a vet when her owners surrendered her due to not being able to fund her medical care. She had a very damaged ear canal and it needed extensive (and expensive!) surgery to mend her. Her eyes were also very sore and they needed some attention too. But once everything was done and all repaired, she has become an absolutely wonderful little dog who ticks just about every box – very little bothers Rogue.

I know there may be a rush for this little 3 year old because she likes children, is not troubled by other dogs, not really interested in cats either – what’s not to love?? Her eyes and ears will need to be kept cleaned regularly to prevent any future flare-ups, and she is also due to be spayed as she recently came into season, but PFBR will contract to that. Her biggest requirement is love and cuddles, she is SUCH a baby! I have so many pictures of her being snuggled and she looks to be in absolute heaven.

If you would like to apply for Rogue – and who wouldn’t? – please read the following:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be  downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – available on the website.

2. Once completed with as much detail as possible please email or post your form to your Regional Coordinator. They will inform you if you meet the required criteria before passing the form to the Management Team for consideration. The most likely candidates for each dog being adopted will then receive a home visit after which a decision will be taken and announced here. No names will be given out publicly.

3. All dogs entering adoption are subject to a 2 week ‘trial period’ for the family and the dog to decide if they like each other. The Adoption Fee is only payable after this time – details of this fee can be found on the Adoption Guidelines, please ensure you have read them thoroughly and understand what is expected of you, and that you can afford to take on a rescue dog.

Payment plans are not available

All Phoenix Rescue Dogs have 5 weeks free insurance on completion of Adoption contracts.

**** APPLICATIONS FOR ROGUE WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL CLOSE OF PLAY  THURSDAY 19TH APRIL AFTER WHICH THE CHECKING PROCESS WILL BEGIN AND NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS WILL BE TAKEN. ****

**** BASIL IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ***

Applications closing Friday 13th April 2018

Basil headed off for his long-term foster and although he has been much improved with his over-stimulation, he is not willing to share his toys. This means that as much as he and his lovely girlfriend got along (photo shows them together), she didn’t fancy sharing either and so we have had a few scuffles, making both dogs unhappy.

To refresh, Basil can be a confused lad; he wants to be affectionate, loving and loved, but sometimes just gets a bit over-awed with life. If excitement levels rise – doorbell, visitors, children playing loudly – he gets very flustered and can appear snappy. Except he isn’t snapping to bite or hurt – he is anxious.

Basil has had a tough life medically – he is all okay now but the emotional scars remain, and he will need pain management forever. He has also been attacked by a larger dog on two separate occasions whilst on a walk and minding his own business, so the fact that he is even as well-balanced as he is is amazing! He can appear unpredictable in the home – not out and about, he could care less! – but it is actually not unpredictable at all if he is understood. i.e the stimuli around him is controlled. He has been a very well-mannered lad in foster-care and really enjoys a walk and a good game.

He adores a ball, not to obsessive levels, just to play and have fun, with or without a human, and so Basil does need a garden to be able to entertain himself in.

Basil is only 3 and has lots of love to give and life to live but he will need experience and patience. He needs to be an only dog or with one who has no interest at all in toys, maybe older, and it must be a female too.

If you would like to apply for Basil:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – also available on the website.

2. Once completed with as much detail as possible please email or post your form to your Regional Coordinator.

**** LAUREL IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ***Applications closing Thursday 12th April 2018

Image may contain: dog

You may be experiencing a touch of deja-vu with this post 😞. Unfortunately things have not gone as well as hoped for Laurel in his pre-adoption home and he is again looking for that forever sofa. Read on to find out why Laurel is worth the little time and effort needed for him to feel safe and loved.

This very handsome 2 year old fawn lad came to us as he was showing unpredictability and boisterousness around a 2 year old child. He has been in foster with another male Frenchie and this was just fine with Laurel, but sadly not with the resident Frenchie 😞 Laurel is a very handsome lad though and so maybe the competition was just too much, but we would be happy to place him a female as this would remove any need to jostle for position on either side.

Laurel is castrated and all vaccinations are up to date.

His fosterer feels that he needs a family who love to get out and about on walks as he can walk forever. He loves cuddles and loves to play and is completely fully house-trained. Hi s photos also seem to express that he likes to sleep ….. and play the clown. I should also point out that a couple of cushions have been nibbled …. beware. And he does not like cats either, sorry.

His foster-Mum says he is a wonderful lad, ready to go and will be a fabulous companion pet. I cant really add much to that!

If you would like to apply for Laurel:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – also available on the website.

2. Once completed with as much detail as possible please email or post your form to your Regional Coordinator.

**** REMEMBER KEVIN? WE URGENTLY NEED HELP TO FIND HIM HIS FOREVER HOME ******

Applications closing Thursday 19th April 2018

 

Kevin was affectionately nicknamed ‘The Coffee Table’ by the Team when he came to us last year, as he was rather rotund and certainly not built for speed. Fast forward a few months after being in foster care and he is a shadow of his former self; toned, fit and svelte. But he is still having some very serious issues that we need to share with you in the hope of finding him an understanding Forever Home, because in the wrong hands he could be very difficult and would be at serious risk of PTS, and there is no way we want to set him up for a fall.

We could MRI scan Kevin, as he is displaying some neurological problems. He is readable as sometimes his face changes, tightens, and he will launch to bite. It doesn’t happen very often and once given a few minutes time-out he is very apologetic, but just can’t help himself it seems. There are no set triggers. So, an MRI might undercover an issue, maybe give a diagnosis. But it won’t offer a cure. And we will still have a dog with a problem.

Kevin is currently in foster with a very understandable couple who are child-free and very understanding of dog behaviour. They have a small Frenchie girl who Kevin adores – most of the time. He will sometimes turn on her for no reason and she is not the type of girl to bite back or put him in his place. He has been known to back off from more ebullient female dogs when walking, but otherwise he will always try to get the first word in, although this has improved. He is hyper-sensitive when out on a walk and will know of approaching people/dogs long before his walker does, and for this reason he can’t be let off the lead, which is a shame as he loves to run and play. Surprisingly, building work in the home has not seemed to bother him and now that the work is finished he is still waiting for the chaps to arrive each day. His fosterers have described him as being almost permanently on-guard, but he seems to be ready to respond to perceived trouble before he even knows if there is any there.

Have you lived with a dog like Kevin? Do you or someone you know understand neurological problems and feel able to cope? Ideally, Kevin needs a home in the middle of nowhere that has large but enclosed spaces that he can’t escape from but can just be busy in. He was heavily resource guarding in his previous home, but this is not the case now, and he doesn’t even seek to attack the free-range chickens since picking one up and not knowing what on earth to do with it!

Kevin is highly at risk, a major Problem Child, and we are urgently appealing for help with him as he is young and fit in all other ways, this undesirable behaviour is not constant, and he is worth working with.

Please use the contact form for more information or email [email protected] if you can help

**** WINIFRED IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ****Applications closing Wednesday 11th April 2018

You may remember the lovely Winifred? She had spent a massive part of her life wearing a cone due to her ears being in such a very bad way. Well no more! She had ear canal surgery and is a different dog, although even throughout her time with the cone and ear-irritation, she maintained her adorable nature, so truly is lovely girl. Winifred is 3 years old, castrated, happy and healthy and very affectionate.

Winifred does love toys and a game – her foster Mum has said that she could give a professional footballer a run for his money! Her love of playing and exploring mean that she is a lean, well-muscled little lady who is very trim. Playtime is great but she also likes her humans to be around for cuddles too – she thoroughly enjoys children and as a little dot of a dog she isn’t too much of a problem with bowling them over, but be aware that this can happen with sheer exuberance!

Winifred is well-mannered, prefers off-lead strolls (but not whilst in pre-adoption please) and pottering as she is still not brilliant on a lead, but this can be worked on, she settles well, loves all things with 2 legs too.

So why has she not been snapped up with such a great write-up? Four legs: That is Winifred’s Archilles Heel, she cannot abide other dogs or cats, we would not trust anything fluffy near her. On a walk she may react to other dogs, especially if her human gives them attention – to be avoided.
She is also not a fan of the hoover ….

Winifred needs a home who can continue her training with walking and desensitisation to other dogs when out, so some previous experience, but definitely, categorically, no cats. She needs a loving family home with children who like to be busy, out and about with a pooch, that is exactly what she needs.

We would also like to move Winifred as soon as possible so her adoption application period will be short and we would like applications to be as detailed as possible to make sure we can make a speedy decision, but the right one.

If you would like to apply for Winifred:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be  downloaded from this website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – available on this website.

2. Once completed with as much detail as possible please email or post your form to your Regional Coordinator.

**VIXEN AVAILABLE FOR FOSTER TO ADOPT**

URGENTLY needs her Forever Home so that she can work on her insecurities and settle down.

She look just so sweet and innocent? And yes, she is, most of the time …. she just doesn’t particularly like to live with other dogs. If a home were very experienced and maybe had an older, larger male then maybe …. but only maybe. Ideally Vixen is a solo kinda gal.

She is a lively lass of 2 years old and has never been around younger children so we would like a home with children of around 11+ ideally and she can be an anxious girl too, so someone home for most of the day would be ideal. In foster she has bullied the resident male Frenchie mercilessly, so anything of her own kind is a definite no-no please.

Vixen isn’t tested with cats and fluffies either, so probably not a good idea.

She doesn’t seem to have been very well socialised in her early life and this is apparent in that she pulls on the lead and has shocking manners but her foster home have worked very hard with this and she has proven to be quite biddable. This positively enforced training will be needed to continue in her new home, so she is not for the inexperienced owner. She was a stubborn lass on the lead so has been trained to the harness – as she could also be a bit of an escape-artist when she decided not to walk! She does need good daily exercise as this will help her to relax and become more confident with her world in a positive way, and her foster-family have brought her on to walk nicely when out now.

As you can probably tell, Vixen is proper little character, and is also a very affectionate wee thing too – she just needs keeping to the path of righteousness! She has been very loved in foster-care but her poor manners to the resident dog cant be allowed, and despite very consistent attempts to get them to be friends, she is having none of it. Everything else is very workable with her.

If you would like to apply for Vixen please either Call Teresa Cargill or Deborah Wadhams (Contact numbers found on the contact page) or email a message using the contact form.

**** SWEETPEA IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION **** Applications closing 29th March 2018

This wonderful little girl is now ready for her Forever Home, and at only just over a year old we would really like to get her settled asap.

Sweetpea is a tad needy but has been learning great manners in her foster-home. She would probably be best in a home with other dogs as she adores her foster Bullies and seems to find confidence when with them. She really loves cuddles, the more the better and although she is not happy with babies, she is a good girl with small people in general.

She did have issues with her ear (photo shows this on arrival), but this has now been resolved and will only need to be monitored and kept clean. Toilet-training has come on in leaps and bounds too so will just need to be continued, but do expect a couple of accidents initially. And watch the bins; Madam is a Bin Raider if not watched carefully! I always suspect this is protest action but forewarned is forearmed!

Although Sweetpea probably wont live with cats, she can be with children and other dogs but in an orderly-ish environment, nothing too manic or lively as she is still coming out of her shell.

Are you SweetPea’s forever home?

Can I live with Children?  Yes

Can I live with Dogs?  Yes definitely

Can I live with Cats:  No

To apply for Sweetpea:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – also  available on the website.

**** OAKLEY IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ****Applications closing 3rd April 2018

 

I said before that Oakley has come on in leaps and bounds since coming into foster and I cannot emphasise that enough. He was a scared, skinny, little boy who was severely underweight and basically scavenging constantly. His foster-carers have done a truly amazing job with him in feeding him well and getting him to a fit and handsome 12kg. He has learned immaculate manners around food, as well as developing a very keen interest in toys that he was not previously showing, and he now loves his squeaky ball (sorry!).

Oakley is almost 4 now and has enjoyed a great outdoors lifestyle lately, with lots of walking and exercise, and this is very obvious just by seeing his muscled legs and body. He is a completely different dog to the one that arrived into Phoenix and his confidence also reflects that.

On arrival, Oakley was quite anxious and so a home that can understand that this might resurface very temporarily is essential, as he will need to be given time to settle again, but he is keen to please and learns very quickly, and is much more relaxed in general. He will shortly be neutered now that he has gained weight, and this will be carried out before he goes to his Forever Home.

Oakley is fit and well and displaying absolutely no medical issues; he loves being with his humans so a home where they are home often, maybe retired/semi-retired, would be perfect for him. He likes to be out and about so pub lunches, walks, weekends away – oh yes, Oakley is quite the country lifestyle lad. He needs a calm home with older children only, definitely no cats and someone who is experienced and understanding with dogs in general. And if that home should also enjoy the outdoor life, then Oakley is definitely the dog for the job, he is quite the rambler!

He is indifferent to other dogs out and about but seems much more content to live as an only dog so we would prefer to keep him this way.

Are you Oakley’s forever home?

Can I Live with Children? Older children only

Can I live with Dogs? Ideally not

Can I live with Cats: Definitely not!

Type of home: A calm home but one that likes to be out and about and includes a dog in their lives.

If you would like to apply for Oakley:

1 Complete an Adoption Application form that can be downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – also  available on the website.

2. Once completed with as much detail as possible please email or post your form to your Regional Coordinator.

**** MARVEL IS AVAILABLE TO ADOPT **** 19/2/2018

Image may contain: dogImage may contain: dog

Here is another pretty lady for adoption: Marvel. She was originally with the Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter and they very kindly allowed us to take her on and continue her recovery for some eye issues. These are likely to be on-going and she will need drops for the rest of her life, although this is not costly the adopting home should be aware of it. As long as her eyes are cared for she will be just fine. She is not good in the dark so night-time walks are difficult and her sight in dimly-lit rooms can also be problematic – a full medical history will be available for passing forward to her next vet. NC&DS managed her initial medical needs and have made a huge difference to her quality of life in doing so.

Marvel has come on in leaps and bounds in foster-care and her foster-Mum has taught her to sit and wait – although she gets very excited whilst waiting! She loves to play fetch, and chew her rope toy, she tries to play with her resident pet friend but that lady is very laid back and doesn’t play back, shame. She loves a good cuddle and a good old belly rub and enjoys being around her foster-Mum (no more going to the toilet on your own!). She has also taken very well to her name and comes back on recall. She is very good at toileting outside but hasn’t yet learned how to ask when she needs to go out, but that will come. She loves being around the little girl in the family and laps up the energy that she can give her – children are so much more fun and Marvel is only around 4 years old. She has demonstrated some jealousy when another family member is fussed by the resident dog and so this will need to be addressed gently, as she may just be being protective of ‘her’ humans, so some gentle work on reassuring and managing this will be useful if she is to live with another dog. It has been a rare occurrence and not of major significance but the appropriate handling of any situation such as this can determine how things develop. Marvel loves her walks and gets very excited when her lead comes out but she is a pleasure to walk. That said, she is very balanced as she also loves bedtime and as soon as she hears that it is bedtime she runs upstairs to her bed and climbs into it.

I think her foster-family have summed it beautifully: “We are going to miss her loads but I’ve really enjoyed helping turn her into a very playful, loving young girl. She will make a family very happy.” And what a great job they have done in giving her this opportunity.

So what does Marvel need that you must consider before applying?:

CHILDREN – yes, she needs the energy that they provide when older humans just cant keep up!

DOGS – yes, will happily live one, maybe male and of her size

CATS – untested so no

TYPE OF HOME IN GENERAL – a family home with an understanding of her medical needs (daily drops) but one that enjoy being out and about with a dog, because she thrives on that too

If you would like to apply for Marvel:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be found on this page in the ‘files’ tab at the top left or downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – also in the files tab and available on the website.

*** MYSTIQUE IS AVAILABLE TO ADOPT **** 19/2/2018

Image may contain: dogImage may contain: dog, screen and indoor

Oh my, it is such a good job I am neither rich nor live in a mansion or this is another one I would be stealing! These Golden Oldies just tug at my heart-strings! Look at this little lady, an adorable 8 year old. Sleeping and eating are her life; nothing too lively thank you very much; yes, she lived in a very lively family home with young children and was as gentle as could be, but preferred to just take herself off for a nap when it all got a bit much!

She is a perfect companion dog – visiting grandchildren would be ideal but a quieter, calmer household would suit Mystique nicely. A bit of a bimble around the block, maybe a jaunt to the park (not impressed by snow though), nothing too strenuous but very much enjoyed, then a bit of a snooze, some food, a trip into the garden perhaps, back to the sofa and a comfy a lap – yes, that is what Mystique likes best. Cuddles are her thing – and she has a certain penchant for men too apparently!

BUT, she can occasionally have a resource guarding issue with food and toys. Once she has eaten and walked away, just fine, but she can get rather protective over her food, so this needs to continue to be worked on, particularly if there is another dog in the house, then separated feeding will be necessary.

Mystique came into season in foster and so we will commit to her spay in a few weeks time when we will also take a good look at her teeth, but we will contract to all of this.

Can you offer a retirement sofa to Mystique? It is worth it for the cuddles and snuggles!

———————————————————————

So what does Mystique need that you must consider before applying?:

CHILDREN – she lived with them very amicably but would now prefer some peace and quiet, so probably only visiting ones or much older children

DOGS – yes, will happily live with a calm one, but makes a wonderful only dog too

CATS – completely indifferent

TYPE OF HOME IN GENERAL – a calm, gentle one that wants a companion to love and be loved by.

————————————————————————

If you would like to apply for Mystique:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be found on this page in the ‘files’ tab at the top left or downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly – also in the files tab and available on the website.
