Vita's Story: Vita'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. Vita was one of Felicity's eight surviving pups. Vita will be homed to a family committed to neutering her pre-season. This will be in her Homing Contract. Vita is chipped, and vaccinations are in progress. Vita was in foster in Kingston whilst she awaits 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.

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.

Vita is head girl and has her own agenda (I find her irresistible!).

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..
Vita is definitely top dog or should I say Bitch she keep the three boys in line at all times and one of the bigger pups..

Can't believe Vita is still here! Vita is full of life and as warm and friendly as she is beautiful. She's athletic too, clearing the top rail of the puppy pen in classic lurcher fashion. If she's left food behind she's ready to jump back in! And did I mention the big, velvet paws …?

There’s the right someone out there for you beautiful darling. Hand reared in the home by RRDR’s most experienced foster parents who could ask for a puppy with a better start in life? Affectionate, loving, a cuddly nature and stunningly beautiful too. Whoever is fortunate enough to adopt Vita will be very lucky indeed. love4.gif

Hiya, I'm trying to promote lovely Vita. I know it's difficult with a lively pup, but is there any chance of getting a better photo of her please? The others are a bit blurry to put on adverts. :thanks.gif: :nicethread.gif:

Susannah and Steve arrived today to meet Vita and she stole their hearts... Vita is going to have a very busy life with lots of canine and child visitors and will be in the centre of all that love and fun


Our thanks to Peter and Pat for nurturing her through as she became the last one to fly from the roost... Felecity mum is now ready to find her home now she knows her last litter are safe.
