Teds' Story: Teds has been through a few homes and at one point on a farm with a few cats. Latest home was with a cat but Teds is intently interest in this cat and making management of both very difficult. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Teds is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Teds is coming in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting his 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 we will only 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 £250 (£400 for pup under 1 yr old). 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 in particular. 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.

We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Teds is still settling in our care. He was 'getting over stimulated in the kennel block so we have bought him into the house where it is quiet and easy to get him on to his walks and also access to the paddocks when the kennels are quiet early morning and early evening.

This evening he had a great time just chilling out he loves toys

Teds is doing really well. He is spending his mornings in my garden and beginning to settle in his own company. When he came he wouldn't go through a door or gate without you, he also was intense in ragging toys etc. Teds is now running into the paddocks without hesitation and although he tends to wait by the closed gate he enjoys relating to dogs on the other side, then runs into his room and settles. He doesn't divert on to you, even if he is getting in a tizzy. I can pick him up and also calm him down with strokes if his energy is tipping over: I get lots of licks in the process icon_redface.gif . Teds is a speedy terrier who is a little head strong but with lots to observe, he loves to spend time watching and he is very happy. Teds is calm in his room and enjoys his toys and his food.

Teds is my "Dog of the Day"

Love him. I always say Terriers are like Champagne you have to savour their fizz. Teds is 1 year old and head strong and hasn't had a terrier person to assist him to help him fully embrace his gifts and mature into the terrific terrier he is destined to be. Teds is a Fell terrier. Patterdales are Black fell terriers and Lakies are Fells. The Lake District is the Fells.

Teds in now in my house and we spend lots of time together and we are working together. His hype doesn't frighten me nor him. He knows I can still him, stroke him and calm him when he gets "hot headed". He usually throws me a few licks in the midst of me calming him. He doesn't divert in the moment which many terriers do, so he has control and has not intention and great resistance to catch you with his mouth.

Separation Anxiety: Chief Objective To run from ... By this I mean he came in very clingy and glued to his persons not wanting them to leave him. I moved him out of the kennel block as he was sensorially over-stimulated and reacting adversely e.g. ragging his leads and toys. He now is in his room in my house and I can spend time especially early morning and evening when everything is quiet. During the day he spends about 90 mins in my garden and a walk. When I got him through a door he would stay close to the door and try to get back to me. We (Teds and I) have been working on him running away and going to enjoy and we are getting there. Teds runs through and into the first paddock (Beginning of the video) and then through and won't quite go into the second paddock but eventually does. I'm working with his volition and we have come a long way so I don't push him but facilitate him becoming more and more comfortable.

In the second video you will see I have secure him so he is able to run in and out of the second paddock enticed by dog company in first paddock


At the end of the evening session here he is running back to his room ...away from me bravo1.gif


Here is Teds out on his walk with Nic and myself today. The double leads avoids him, when stressed, focussing and ragging the leads. He is doing really well


Teds in making great strides in gaining skills and embracing life . Watch this space he is beginning to bring things together in his head and make sense of his current situation and gain greatly from it.

We have been walking Teds twice weekly for the last three weeks or so and it is encouraging to see him slowly relax into the walks. Originally we had let him choose the route but now quite often he is happy for us to direct him. He is becoming more confident with where he is going and now I am sure could make his way back if he ever needed to. Teds likes to know where the kennel site is.

At the moment we are trying to avoid the triggers to Teds's anxiety - other dogs, other people, horses - yesterday though we came across all of those and managed to keep him calm. He is now more than happy to accept high value treats en route and also lots of gentle strokes if we stop for a minute or two.

He has had such a very unsettled start to his young life - Teds is only just one year old - so it is no wonder he is in such need of calmness and stability and understanding people. Onwards and upwards Teds!
