Current Status: Homed

Ada's Story: Ada's Mum, Felicity, was found tied up and very pregnant. Felicity was handed in to a council pound, who then contacted us. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place to Felicity, saving her life. Felicity had her pups in November 2018, whilst in our care. Ada was one of Felicity's eight surviving pups. Ada will be homed to a family committed to neutering her pre-season. This will be in her Homing Contract. Ada will be chipped, and vaccinations are in progress. Ada was in foster in Kingston whilst she awaited 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.

Ava'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:
One of a litter of Lurcher pups, born to Mum Felicity whilst in our care.

By tomorrow morning all eight of Felicity's surviving puppies will be seven weeks old. I'm pleased to say that they are now doing well. After the early deaths the remaining pups still had a chest infection needing repeated injections of antibiotics. They also required regular “coupage” to clear their lungs. Our rendition of “The Puppy Slapping Song” will never make a Christmas No.1 but it kept Pat and I sane over the festive period …

At that point it became clear that we had, in effect, two parallel litters; four pups were making progress (Stanley, Vita, Oates and Tensing) and four were either making little progress or even losing weight and “going into reverse“ (Freya, Ada, Hester and Marion). The small girls needed careful but determined hand feeding – syringing at times – to keep them eating. Then, when they had finally agreed to stay alive, we found all eight had worms …

Fortunately we had decided to wean the little ones early and we were keeping the two groups separate and all of them off Felicity. Just as well really. Felicity had been wormed during the first week after giving birth but, evidently, eggs had already passed to the pups. Then, because her instinctive clearing away involved eating their poo, Felicity was re-infested. Milbemax all round! Somehow the bigger pups have had more resistant worms and today they finished three days of Panacur ...

In another week the puppies will be ready for microchip, first vaccination and ... finding new people to love. They are all adorable and their individual characters are emerging along with their striking looks and a lot of Saluki-like characteristics. Yes, it's already time for them to be homed.

Ada is a sweetheart (unless you're an irritating sibling!)

Ada is now growing! She is possibly the quietest of the puppies and is very fond of her brother Tensing and sister Marion (on the left). After all, what's a brother for if not to sleep on?

Ada was homed to day … and I forgot to take the homing picture! But I have received the following, lovely, text from Samantha …
Ada is a beautiful calm girl. She's settled really well after a good journey. Eaten supper and had a good kip in the crate. Now on my lap in front of the fire. Thank you both for giving her such a great start in life. She's super secure and wonderful xxxxxx
