Derek's Story: Derek was found stray 2x nd owner refused to claim him second time. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Derek is neutered, chipped, and vaccinations are in progress. Derek was in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting 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.

Derek is a little bundle of happiness. He loves people and will make himself at home on an lap available. He was a natural posing for his photos and then after getting cuddles from all the volunteers he could find he happily trotted off with Charlie for his walk.

I met Derek for the first time this afternoon, he is such a lovely bundle of fur which feels so soft. He was very good taking him out of the kennel block and back in, ignoring the other dogs barking at him. Derek is such an endearing boy making little snuffly squeeky noises along the way. He is a good fun boy, I imagine he will not be with us for too long. love4.gif

I had a wonderful welcome from Derek this afternoon he was just so pleased and excited to be going out for a walk. Whilst out we had two off lead dogs pass by which Derek did bark at initially which I think was only meant in a friendly way but we moved out the way to let them pass by by which time Derek was more interested in searching in the bushes and undergrowth and so no further reaction. We made our way down to the stream which Derek enthusiastically waded into and enjoyed having a cooling down. He is an alert little lad and is quite excited when he spots squirrels but as soon as he realises he cannot chase them he carries on walking. Derek is a pleasure to take out, he is good company and a character. bighug.gif

Seeing this little chap as I passed the kennels I couldn't help saying hello. His little tail wagged enthusiastically to say hello and he took his treat so gently and placed it on the floor for later as he was more interested in chin tickles. What an absolute sweetheart he is!

Derek is a very popular little chap. He has an ever growing fan club at the kennels.
He has also had a smart new haircut...….

jan had a nice little walk round with the v friendly derek who behaved impeccably throughout although when he spotted a deer in the grounds he naturally reacted a little bit to it he is one v sweet and handsome terrier who we are sure is going to be v popular with the walkers and has all the traits to make a great family dog

I was lucky enough to walk Derek this afternoon, I hadn't taken him out for a few weeks as each time he had already been taken out before I arrived. Derek really is such a lovely lively happy chappy. He is always so very excited to being taken out, he is very alert and would dearly love to be able to chase squirrels up trees. His enthusiasm is catching and definitely lifts your spirits. This is one gorgeous boy who will be a wonderful addition to a family. bighug.gif

The lovely Derek and I went for quite a long walk this afternoon. His joy for life is so plain to see. We took a trip down into the stream which Derek thoroughly enjoyed wading in up to his stomach. There was another of our walkers with a dog also paddling in the water both dogs were exceptionally good and just ignored each other. After a few minutes Derek was more than happy to continue on his walk. When we got back to the kennels he waited patiently for his sausage treats. Just such a gorgeous boy. Kiss of love.gif
