Rita's Story: Rita was living with her litter sister in Spain due to her owner's loss of a partner, and the resulting change in accommodation. The two litter sisters found it hard to adjust to living in a flat in an urban setting, and began to fight. They both need their own homes and gardens again in a low dog density setting. Rescue Remedies offered them Rescue places. Rita is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Rita is in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst she awaits her new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

Rita's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information:
Terrier Rescue was asked to help Rita (and also her litter sister) to find a Patterdale home who can offer her a safe, supported and secure home.
Rita comes into kennel on the 5th January 2019

What a dear little terrier and how she enjoyed her walk this afternoon. She showed an interest in squirrels and birds and definitely wanted cuddles and treats. She is a lovely little girl. Let's hope she is homed soon. angel13.gif]

what a lovely sweet dog rita is she walks v nicely alongside her litter sister fifi not even a hint of a bark between them - she loves a few cuddles and has obv been well trained if you get the sausages out you only have to say sit and immediately shes sitting there v patient waiting for her treats she seems to have a brilliant temperament we have walked lots of patties and she is one of the best anyone looking for a smallish sweet natured terrier should look no further

Rita was not feeling well today. She refused all treats and did not want to walk far. We went for a short walk - new walker Freya took her litter sister Fifi and I took Rita. When we got back to the pen I made her bed and she immediately cuddled down into it. Poor little thing. Get well soon Rita. angel13.gif] angel13.gif] angel13.gif]

I walked Rita today and if I was a terrier girl, I would take her home! She is lovely. A very easy walk, loves sausages and even walks on her hind legs beside you, just to show off and let you know she is worthy of a treat or two! Loves to sniff and walks really well alongside Fifi. A lovely couple of patterdales! X
