Current Status: Homed

Stanley's Story: Stanley'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. Stanley was one of Felicity's eight surviving pups. Stanley will be homed to a family committed to neutering him around the year mark. Rescue Remedies dogs must never be used for breeding. This will be in his Homing Contract. Stanley will be chipped, and vaccinations are in progress. Stanley was in foster in Kingston whilst he awaits his 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.

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.

Stanley - the first born and his mother's favourite – is happy and outgoing.

So Yesterday I travelled up to meet the Lovely Peter, Pat and Pups, all the P's and what a fantastic time I had. Hi ya!.gif P&P have done a wonderful job raising these babies, whom are now more than ready to fly the nest and start their individual journeys. Apologies that the photos are not great quality but they are extremely hard to photo and always on the move..
Stanley is Probably one of my fav's he is more hound like and to be honest looks like the milkman's Heart fill with love.gif]

Quite agree, Hayley! Little manly Stanley now weighs a wonderful 5.8kg. That makes him bigger than Harpo …

Stanley is about to become Stanley Matthews as he enters into his new footballing career with his human siblings Eddie and Frankie. Our thanks to Ian and Julie for offering their hearts to Stanley.


Our special thanks to Peter and Pat for nursing Stanley and his mum and doggie siblings through to good health and giving him a strong foundation for his future life.
