Bruce & Poppy's needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Bruce & Poppy were found stray/abandoned & unclaimed within a council pound. We stepped forwards to offer Bruce & Poppy a Rescue place. Bruce is now neutered and fully vaccinated. Bruce & Poppy were in Guildford Kennels and then enjoyed a break in Essex. Poppy was homed in early December as although they were a harmonious couple who had shared 4 years + together they were strong dogs and we had trouble finding a couple will to always walk them on lead managed individually. We are confidence Bruce will find his family soon and he would love to live with another dog. Bruce waits in boarding kennels in Guildford for a new family.

Visit Bruce's thread for daily updates, lots of pictures and videos. Please click to submit Online Application We will match you with a dog that suits your lifestyle, please remain open we successfully home 350 dogs per annum. We work fast to secure our dogs their loving homes.

***PLEASE HELP: We have to ask for suggested min. donation £175 at the time of adoption, to support so many dogs in kennels. We have no state sponsorship and exist on the goodwill of the public and our supporters. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life.

I'll get more pics of Bruce over the weekend, he's the more lively of the two at the moment but then dear Poppy had the bigger op with her spay so she's probably a bit more subdued than normal.
He soooo loves Poppy, wants to be close to her and licks her muzzle :smiley-gen132.gif:

He's a lovely cuddly boy, very responsive to his name and sits when I ask him to (in return for a treat !!!)

He's been watching the Olympics with me this afternoon and is now snoozing, enjoying the cool fan, he's gone and stood in front of it a few times :D it's passed their bedtime bless !!!

Stretched out on the floor,lovely Poppy on the chair behind him ...

Stretched out sleepy boy...

This was earlier when both of them were on the sofa with me, happy to share my love, very good and no jealousy demonstrated at all thumbs.gif

Bruce is on the left, think they're holding hands !!!

Looking forward to the weekend with these 2 :smiley-gen132.gif:

A few pics of Bruce taken yesterday as he arrived from the vets :D

Get those eyebrows of his :cool.gif:

His coat is a beautiful blonde colouring, his recall from the garden very good, sits for his dinner and an all round lovely boy.

Yesterday he was quite lively and excited i think to be back in a home, a little over-amorous for Poppy post spay and she gave him a few grumbles when he tried it on ! He got the message every time and always backed off and if I called him away before he had the chance then he would come to me :D
Likewise when it was bedtime and they were both allowed on my bed, they couldn't believe it and Bruce wanted to hug me and shower me with kisses then do the same to Poppy !

They both settled down quite quickly and we all slept well through the night,I woke a few times as Bruce decided he wanted to move to a different part of my bed or lie in front of the fan on the floor next to my bed. The funniest time was when he managed to make space that didn't previously exist so that he could squeeze between me and Tilly, he managed it and I had about an inch of my bed !!! They were both very good :smiley-gen132.gif:

And they've been great all day today too - the novelty of the garden available to them as they want today as the conservatory doors are wide open means they've both settled fantastically well and his amorous attention to Poppy has virtually stopped, I think she's had to tell him 'no' only a few times today. Lovely to see the two of them wandering around the garden, Bruce spotted a cheeky pidgeon on my lawn a few minutes ago and ran straight out ducking under my garden chairs ! Pidgeon got away ofcourse well before he was anywhere near close !!! Poppy followed but with not quite so much vigour !

Both Bruce and Poppy are complete cuddle monkeys, I've had one each side of me on the sofa many a time today - no jealousy at all between them which is so great to see, they do each try to be the one giving me kisses !

Breakfast was easy with them too, I fed them at opposite sides of the kitchen, they were both fine and at the end went to check out wach others bowls just in case ! I would say Poppy is the boss and Bruce loves her oodles - he's the main muzzle licker love4.gif

Should just say they are both completely house trained too, and when I needed to pop out the front door to my car they understood 'stay' and stood back to let me into my porch no problem at all and when I came in a couple of minutes later you'd have thought I'd been away for hours, such was their enthusiasm to see me again :D

No shenanigans tonight, Bruce and Poppy so much more relaxed and on to the bed, lay down, waited for me, then sleepybyes zzz zzzzz zzzzzzzz thumbs.gif

Bruce has dived under the quilt, I've made sure he has an air hole as its still warm !!! So he's under the duvet with the fan on his face !!
Poppy was a bit sleepy and quite confused at where he'd gone lol.gif

Bruce was great overnight, couldn't decide between the bed and the floor but soon settled back to sweet dreamland when he moved !

Bruce did some good snoozing and dreaming last night as he made the most of the comfy sofa...
image.jpeg
image.jpeg
image.jpeg


Bruce then moved from the comfy sofa to the comfy chair ! This was my view of him from my spot on the sofa...
image.jpeg
lol.gif
And this him in full relaxation mode !
image.jpeg


Bruce likes to look out the window in my bedroom ...
image.jpeg


Bruce and Poppy had no problem having a lie in this morning ! Outside for pee time once we did get up, they are excited to go out first thing and enjoy a bit of a run around and play. Tilly is definitely the boss and Bruce does pretty much anything she asks him to ! If Poppy decides to play Brice loves it, if she's doesn't want to she'll let him know and he totally respects that. They soon calm right down after a play and just enjoy being in the garden...
image.jpeg
image.jpeg
image.jpeg


I purposefully have kept the toys away and I tend to not be in the garden with them for long as that makes them more excitable, calm is what we want and what we have as they are both recovering from neutering on Friday so no over exertion required !

They love to chill...
image.jpeg
image.jpeg


I was watching the Olympics (again) on catch up this morning so didn't get out of my PJs til late, this was the sight that greeted me when I came out the shower...
image.jpeg
image.jpeg
awwww, soooo lovely :smiley-gen132.gif:

Some gentle indoor play...
image.jpeg
image.jpeg
image.jpeg
image.jpeg
they both respond very well when I ask them to stop or go outside if they want to play more !

And snuggles on my lap, either side of me again on the sofa...
image.jpeg


A couple more shots of Handsome Bruce...
image.jpeg
image.jpeg
image.jpeg


And this is how Bruce gets off the sofa/chair, he slithers !!!...
image.jpeg


We've also been for a walk today, easy to harness and they walk well together, keen as opposed to pully and I even found I could hold both leads and do a short video so that tells you they were pretty good walking together. Video to follow later!

Bruce is a very handsome boy, in great condition, nicely cuddly but not at all needy, his front legs reach out to you like arms when you're sat on the sofa for a cuddle, love that :smiley-gen132.gif:
Can't believe these 2 were picked up as strays. They have had some positive input from what I can see and are a very lovely couple of dogs.

I decided to give Bruce and Poppy a treat tonight, these gorgeous dogs are so easy to please :D

Nearly 8.30pm and I said we should go for a walk, well these guys were so excited !!! They're normally well tucked up in bed by this time so they were delighted to be heading out !
image.jpeg
image.jpeg

We walked past a house where a few dogs barked like crazy at us from behind a bush/fence - the look on Bruce and Poppy's faces... Where are they, where are they ??!!. No barking back, I was very proud of them :D Well, after that excitement it got even more exciting for them ... a black cat ... Now a black cat is lucky so I hope it's a good omen for these two but I can safely say they are not for cats !!! They walk very well but they pull when they've seen a cat darting off into the distance !!!
We headed in a different direction and they did settle again ! We got back and the 2 of them headed straight to the water bowl !!! It was a very exciting walk for them and if they weren't tired already they are now !!!

This is Bruce right now !
image.jpeg


Bruce and Poppy have come and gone from the garden through the conservatory all afternoon, relaxing with me on the sofa or finding a resting place of their own. I'm not convinced they are sports fans, this was they whilst Max W Team GB was winning gold in the gymnastics...
image.jpeg


They did join me on the sofa to watch more of the Olympics later on...
image.jpeg
image.jpeg

But when I uploaded the pics I spotted Bruce wasn't looking at the tele and Poppy was yawning !!!
image.jpeg


Love them even if they aren't fans of the Olympics :smiley-love014.gif: :smiley-love014.gif:

Bruce and Poppy headed over to Guildford with Lynne today, know they're gonna be soooo loved there but I am missing my weekend buddies, bed feels very spacious without them !!!

They were so good this morning, relaxing whilst I got on with my work, no interruptions from them at all, just brilliant :D
