To apply to home a dog, you must be ready within 7 days and complete a homing questionnaire submitted Online We work fast to secure our dogs their loving homes and can be talking to up to 10 families at any one time. Please remain open: We have the dogs we have. Our dogs need a supportive family to offer patience, time & tolerance to allow them to settle.

What a little sweetheart. Karen has the cutest face, looking a bit like a French bull dog with her short nose. She takes her time, just plodding about, really no bother at all. Karen was a little nervous around the noisy kennel block but was immediately very friendly with me. She does have a little bit of a stubborn streak (bulldog?) and made it clear if she didn't want to go in a particular direction but with gentle persuasion she would follow me.

I met Karen for the first time today, when I entered her kennel she seemed very unsure but soon realised I was going to take her out for a walk. Karen walks at a good pace without pulling. As we were walking through the woods Karen was very interested in the squirrels chasing around and although she would have liked to chase them she still remained very manageable soon forgetting about them and walking on. When we got back to the kennels she enjoyed her sausage treats which she was very gentle in accepting. love4.gif

What a doll! Bit smitten with Karen I was love4.gif lovely chunk of a girl who flung herself in my lap and gave me cuddles galore in her kennel. She's a bit tubby but this didn't stop her setting a fair pace on her walk, although she doesn't pull at all. She didn't take any notice of other dogs and seems to like sausages 0002.gif] . Lovely dog, so sorry to see her in rescue.

Hannah and david had a sleepless night last night as they were finally on countdown. As with so many of our families they have been avidly following our dogs up until the 7 day time when they could submit their homing questionnaire and discuss actual Staffies.

Winnie was the WINNER!

Hello from Winnie and family!
Winnie has been with us for almost two weeks now, and we can't imagine life without her. She is settling in well, and we love her so much!
Here are some photos from her adventures yesterday :)

Thank you all at Rescue Remedies

Greetings from Winnie (ex RR Karen)!
It's been a good month of settling into her new home now, it feels as if she's been here forever!
Lately Winnie has had an on/off dodgy stomach, suffering from urgency and pooping indoors. We initially put it down to the stress of fireworks, but has since started up again with no apparent stressors. The vets don't think anything is serious, but she has been on a chicken and rice diet with 'Canikur Dog Probiotic and Prebiotic Pro Paste' since Thursday evening and seems to be feeling a little better :crossfingers.gif: ! No more accidents but still soft orangey coloured poop. Will keep a close eye, any tips much appreciated!
Otherwise she is well! Loves to run around and explore the park (although we're getting quite out of breath trying to keep up 0028.gif ). She seems to love the autumn leaves and is happiest exploring the woods thumbs.gif .
Looking forward to the Christmas Charity walk on the 8th!
Lots of love
Winnie, Hannah and Dave
