Current Status: Available
Gucci's Story: Gucci's family house was burnt down; the family escaped with Gucci and nothing else. Their allocated accommodation will not accommodate a dog. Friends took Gucci in but this could only be very temporary. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving her life. Gucci is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Gucci is in boarding kennels near Guildford whilst awaiting 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.
Gucci'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: Emergency call from vet who had had no luck finding a Rescue place for Gucci

I loved spending time with Gucci on Friday - she’s an absolute love - easy on the lead with the common to ourselves, super walk love4.gif

Gucci made me smile, let’s say she’s not little miss skinny ... but she still chose to go under the stiles on the bridge 0002.gif]
Love her Heart fill with love.gif]

Gucci just has one of those faces that can look sad.....but she’s not at all. Xx
Gucci looks a lot more serious than she actually is. She pulled for the first few minutes of our walk but soon settled in to a nice, steady pace. I took her down to the stream....she wasn’t overly impressed until I went in the water with her. Once she’d got used to it, she was fine and had a little paddle for a few minutes. Tony, my partner, walked her back to kennels, the more friends Gucci has, the better, as she seems very people friendly. Xx.

I can confirm that although Gucci may look a little bit sad she absolutely is not 😊 and when she smiles it's infectious!
It was my first time walking Gucci and she really is such a lovely girl. She was so good while I was fussing trying to clip on her leads and then on the way out she was super gentle, although obviously strong she is very aware of her walker and definitely made allowances for me, this just made me fall in love with her even more Kiss of love.gif
Gucci walks like an absolute dream, lovely gentle pace, but... she can also get the tiniest bit excited! It really is just a little skip and a jump, again she controls herself and it is so lovely to see this big, gorgeous girl having fun.
Such fabulous company, so much so that I did not want to take Gucci back! Every time we found ourselves on a path back to kennels, I'd look at her big old smily face and we'd divert on a longer walk!
Last but not least Gucci is an absolute stunner, she has the most gorgeous chocolate brown coat, big old wiggly bottom and the kindest eyes Heart fill with love.gif]

Heather here - I looked after Gucci for a few weeks before she came to RR. She had been with another friend for a couple weeks but unfortunately we both live in flats that have no dog policy’s otherwise I think one of us would have kept her forever.

Gucci became my best friend over that time and loves a cuddle on the sofa (usually snoring) and was very well house trained as long as we kept to our scheduled walk times. She was a bit funny about eating when she came to me but she had been through a lot of trauma with the fire and being separated from the family, and by the time she left she was licking the bowl clean!

She does have very sad eyes, especially when she would come and put her head on my lap if I was on the computer and she wanted some attention. And she will follow you everywhere around the house, including to the toilet. woo.gif]

I would be out of the house for 3/4 hours a day and when I returned she would be right where I’d left her - asleep on the sofa. She loves sleep, her kong, and playing tug of war with a rope. But most of all, she loves a ball. The bigger the better!

She is dog reactive, and I’m sure this is because she’s been under-socialised. We did lots of work going to the park (with muzzle) and walking past different dogs and distractions (a squirrel or bird might get her going too) and she got better and better at ignoring them. She has so much potential and is very smart. She learnt in a couple of days that an open door doesn’t mean she is allowed to rush through, and to sit when at a road, and to “leave it” when she gets tunnel vision. It would be nice to see her go to a home that could reinforce all of these and work on her recalls with distractions.

Besides all that, she will soon be your best friend if you choose to give her a chance. love4.gif

Gucci really is such a lovely girl and today we had the nicest of walks.
I think I've said before that Gucci is a big, strong girl but she Is also a very kind girl. She is super aware of her walker and is an absolute joy to spend time with.
Gucci can be a plodder, but she does have a bit of a wiggle going on, particularly her bottom!! Really it doesn't take a lot for me to fall in love and with Gucci it's her big old wiggly bottom Kiss of love.gif
Love this girl so much love4.gif love4.gif

Fabulous walk with Gucci yesterday.
I got such a lovely, happy welcome from this delightful girl and it reminded me all over again how amazing this beauty is. I am pleased to say that not only does Gucci no longer look sad she has now started to smile, seriously it is the cutest thing, her big old tail starts to wag and this big grin appears on her face Kiss of love.gif
For a big girl Gucci is so very gentle, no pulling on the lead whatsoever, apart from when she spots a squirrel! It's really not a problem and does make me smilie, Gucci can go from this gentle, plodder to super alert ready to run, cheeky girl woo.gif]
Not the longest walk because of the heat but as always it was a pleasure to spend time with Gucci, love her ❤️ Come along forever home
