Luna's Story: Sad background: Luna's breeder was an alcoholic, and she so fed sporadically, tough life for 2 and half years then passed on to a pub owner who had her for 6 months but didn't cope not knowing her breed mix/ traits. A family homed her through website on the understanding she had lived with and was good with cats...sadly not. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place. Luna is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Luna is in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting her new family.

If interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and sadly due to unprecedented interest, we will only be able to contact you if we have a suitable dog. 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.

Luna'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: Background info: Her breeder was an alcoholic and often forgot to feed her, so she always eats and drinks very fast and immediately throws up - we've stopped this by using a slow feeder bowl and giving her an inch of water in her bowl at a time, filling it back up whenever it's empty throughout the day. She didn't get on with another dog so the breeder sold her to a lady at the pub - the owner we got her from. After 6 months decided she couldn't cope and putting her for sale on Pets4Homes, where we found her. Apparently she lived with 7 cats at the breeders house, but we now think this was untrue. We also think she may have seen some bad punishment in the past, sometimes if my husband moves too suddenly or accidentally looms over her she growls slightly or flinches, but she's never shown any aggression. She's a real lap dog in the house, loves sleeping fully covered by blankets, and doesn't mind being carried if necessary. she isn't possessive over her bed and in the house is mostly obedient. She does get stressed if left alone in a room and has eaten things she shouldn't, so she is now never left alone for longer than a minute without being crated. She likes her crate but prefers the sofa or our bed. She gets cold easily and doesn't mind having a jumper or coat put on. On walks she pulls badly and is too distracted to listen to any commands; she always wears a collar and a harness with a short lead attached to each, but if we go to a wide-open space we put her on a 10m non-extendable long line attached to her harness and a chain to attach the harness to the collar in case she slips one. We walk her for 45 minutes most nights, unless the weather is bad - she hates the rain and won't even go to the toilet in the garden if it's raining. She likes her toys and playing tug of war, she has a loud growl when she plays but it's obvious she's playing. She can be mouthy when she plays but if it's too hard and you react she's immediately very apologetic and gentle. She's a really loving companion and will be an amazing pet in the right situation.

Luna comes into our Rescue 25th February

It was lovely to met this wee girl yesterday and she was keen to explore the new surroundings, perfect as the sun was out so off we went around the kennel grounds. Bless her, a little bit nervous as she starts to settle with us but I was so delighted when she put her paws on my lap as we sat on the bench love4.gif

Anne was taking the photos above, methinks little Luna you are quite the model xxx
