Ferdy's Story: Ferdy was found abandoned and unclaimed within a Northern council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Ferdy is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Ferdy is in boarding kennels near Guildford 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.

Walked Ferdy for the first time yesterday and although a bit nervous of me at the start he walked very nicely and didn't pull at all. A lovely gentle giant who I am sure with patience and understanding would be a great addition to a family looking for a big dog.

Ferdy has those striking looks with soulful gentle eyes and a wonderfully warm personality
That captures you .
He's super friendly, and loved receiving long strokes down that beautiful coat. We walked down the run and he excitedly wagged and said hello to all the other rescue dogs.
His walking companion today was little Patterdale Apollo, Ferdy was very happy to be walking beside the young boy and showed off his fantastic dog skills as he respected little Apollos space and didn't try to impose himself on him.
Ferdy kept checking behind him to make sure his new friend was near by !!
He's a scenter and a sniffer and walks at a comfortable pace for a tall, large boy he wants to be by your side so isn't a strong puller.
We stopped for photos and ferdy loves a cuddle , leaning against legs to be close even though we had only just met 30 mins before.
On returning to kennels Ferdy was surrounded by dogs Marshall, King, Apollo all appeared and he waited oh so patiently as each dog passed by, He stood calmly wagging his tail, showing his skills, impressive for such a young boy.
He will make a wonderful addition to a family he's so meant to be in a loving home.

I had the pleasure of walking Ferdy today and he was just lovely. No pulling, easy to harness and so friendly and willing. I didn’t take any pictures this time but we enjoyed a nice walk and lots of sniffles. He is a biggish boy but so polite and responsive. A total pleasure love4.gif

Walked Ferdy for the first time on Sunday, he`s a lovely young boy, can be strong and a bit bouncy but it`s only puppy like exuberance and a zest for life. He walked wonderfully with his best buddy Apollo, it was very busy down by the canal and he was not phased by runners, walkers and bikes, when we met other dogs he was bouncy and excited but not in an aggressive way just in a wanting to meet and maybe play way. When we got back I took him to the paddock for half an hour, he loved being chased around and went into gangly legged zoomie mode! I also gave him a good brush, which he seemed to like, standing still perfectly.
For such a young dog Ferdy is doing amazingly well coping with being cooped up in kennels, he will need an a home that gives him plenty of exercise but I can also imagine that he would like to be a cuddly couch potato too!

I walked Ferdy today and the pictures above are exactly like he is all of the time - he's always smiling! He enjoyed the pack walk with Henry, Tizer and Apollo - he loved them all and was happy where ever in the line he was. He took a shine to Henry, but Henry preferred him to be further back and told him so (Ferdy didn't quiet get it so we jiggled the pack line around). At the Loseley lake Apollo went back leaving us with just the three and we carried on. Then at a manhole there was a lot of dirty water - Ferdy just got his paws wet... where as Henry laid right in it and turned a muddy red! A male jogger stopped as he wanted to say hellow to all of the dogs - Ferdy was very happy to have the attention of the stranger. Henry then went back 'to go in the river' and Ferdy and Tizer carried on walking, we had a lovely long walk. This boy will need good long walks and he will love his future humans tenfold love4.gif

I took Ferdy out for the first time today and he was a delight. He had a nice walking pace as you can see from the video below. He walked past dogs without any negative reaction. He was also responsive to voice commands, even moving away easily from some nearby swans after having a look. He seemed a friendly and attentive dog, and would make a great addition to a loving home looking for a large dog.

My boyfriend and I took Ferdy out for the day on Sunday. He was very well behaved and a joy.

Car travel -Ferdy travelled very well in the car. When we first got going, Ferdy was a bit fidgety, standing and moving around, but I think that is to be expected from the excitement and uncertainty of a difference to his kennel routine, and he would look for a comforting human hand for pats and attention the second I may have stopped. But, after a short time he lay down. On the way back to the kennels, he immediately lay down and looked out the window. He didn’t look for reassuring attention if I stopped patting him and he was happy to settle, putting his head down. It was only a 15 minute journey each way, but there were good indications that he travels well.

Walking and obedience – Ferdy is a pleasure to walk, generally walking in a very relaxed manner on a loose lead. Yet he showed the enthusiasm of the young boy he is (he’s only just become a year old last month) and loved a little galivanting canter when I had the energy to run (which wasn’t often!). He will look back to check on his human. My partner kept stopping to identify fungi on our walk and Ferdy was happy to stop and wait, showing no impatience to move on whatsoever. He would mooch about sniffing away at all the smells, or have a nice lean against me for cuddles, or be rewarded with treats for a few tests of his obedience. He comes back when at the end of a long lead when called, and knows sit, paw and watch me very well. I think he’s an intelligent dog and will pick up training well.

Other dogs – We walked near a few dogs today, or them us! Ferdy showed interest, but sometimes could be called away or distracted with treats and commands to sit and watch me. A couple of off lead dogs came running up to him. One approaching dog was barking madly and eventually controlled by his owner before he reached us when Ferdy barked back. One was a year old whippet (ignoring his owner totally) and this was very exciting to Ferdy who jumped around trying to play with him as the dog circled us until his owner got him on a lead. On all occasions Ferdy’s behaviour pointed to positive enthusiasm and to him wanting to play, nothing negative. Based on our experiences I would think Ferdy would be good with dogs if socialised well enough.
Strangers – On a previous day going past a large group of walkers, Ferdy seemed a bit nervous of a man trying to say hello to him (and the man did so very calmly, letting Ferdy sniff him). However, on Sunday he did very well with strangers. He was comfortable around my boyfriend, would look to move towards him if a mushroom to identify took him away from us(!) and would wag his tail and welcome him back after times we walked ahead. In the kennel car park before we left, he said a nice hello to a group of three volunteers with no signs of nervousness, accepting cuddles and a couple of treats.
Food drive – Ferdy likes treats, which will help with training him, but he’s not obsessive about or snatching with them. We stopped for our lunch while we were out on the common. Sitting on a small grassy mound took us down near Ferdy’s eye level. However, he behaved impeccably - there was no attempt whatsoever to attempt to steal our food. He was interested – few dogs wouldn’t be, especially when in kennel life – but he simply sat and waited patiently, being rewarded when he was calm and looked away.

I love his floppy ear and his tail wagging. Ferdy is a great young dog, a pleasure to be with and will become someone’s amazing companion.

Ferdy did induction training on Friday for new walker Laura - I'm sure he thought it was brill. First lesson was that Ferdy likes cuddles and you need to be receptive of two paws on you for a good hug, next was that Ferdy will subtly work out where your treats are and politely ask for a treat, then harness and leads can go on. It rained hard, but that didn't matter to Ferdy or us. His tail wags constantly and he loves being told what a good boy he is. We also found his tickly spot when trying to adjust his harness and when back at the kennels he really enjoyed being dried with a towel (more cuddles) lol.gif
Ferdy loves his walks - happy boy
