Hector's Story: Hector was found abandoned and unclaimed within a East Midlands council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Hector is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Hector was in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are 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.

First walk with Hector. He is young and inexperienced but so friendly, amazingly calm for a youngster and fun.

Hector is just 10 months old and some how he got himself in a lot of trouble, having run out of time in a pound. His beauty in soul and body meant we were going all out to save him and we were so pleased when he stepped off his transport and we knew / he knew he was safe and amongst friends.

Hector is a Shar Pei x; his slight build and athleticism gives him a terrier feel. He is a door dasher or should I say rather determined to go out for a walk. Once out of his door his calm demeanour showed, as he met his neighbours nose to nose then headed out.

We headed out to the Woodland Paddock and he pottered around whilst I took the chance to tidy up and have a telephone conversation.

He is very loving and stayed close. At one point he suddenly got hyped / silly and started grabbing but was easily calmed with no damage but a sense of teeth in his excitement. We always treat our terriers with respect and our motto is never raise their energy beyond their control. He is young and still bringing his skills together.

Wonderful character and adores being stroked. He didn't seem to know about tennis balls = retrieval, but began to denude it of its yellow jacket. We have left his harness on so he is easier to bring out on walks and he hasn't touched it. Smart lad fully vaccinated just neutering to achieve booked in for the 31st!

Hector reminds me of both Marion and Monty. Lynne will remember those characters who came through our rescue.
I think his photos give you a good insight into his character. He is fun and full of life, up for adventure for sure, but the last photo also hints at his inexperience and vulnerability.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Hector on Saturday, what a handsome chap.

Hector was keen to set off for our walk in the woods; though not so much so that I was being taken for the walk. We set off together and he was ready to pause to have a good sniff of his surroundings before we got far.

We kept a good pace and when we crossed the path of other walkers Hector would have happily greeted anyone willing to say hello.

Hector was happy to stop at the stream for a refreshing drink and we took a few moments to pause in the cool water to watch a leaf or two drift downstream before extending our walk to indulge his youthful enthusiasm.

We passed some cyclists at a distance and Hector appear unconcerned. He also showed no interest in a squashed toad we passed by on the road.

As we continued on our loop we did cross some open heathland where Hector expressed an interest in rolling in some exciting smells, but luckily we successfully avoided this and returned to our starting point without getting in a mess.

A little persuasion was necessary to return Hector to his pen given it remained a glorious sunny day but I feel sure that such a happy-go-lucky fella should not be waiting long before finding a sole mate ready to take him into their home.

I saw Hector hadn’t got out today so I took him for a quick spell in the paddock. He was easy to get out and walked at a very gentle pace, stopping to sniff everything. Even in the paddock he just sniffed and didn’t want to play with a ball. He and Chanel greeted each other in a very friendly way through the fence. He put his feet on my lap for a cuddle. He’s a calm and sweet dog.
We then ambled back to his kennel via the Poets Hut and he did some more sniffing.


As we got near to his kennel he had a little lie down in front of all the dogs barking in their kennels - and completely ignored them. He went easily back into his kennel. He was very sweet and easy to manage.

I have had the pleasure of 3 walks with Hector this week and each time I fall a little more in love with him. He has an air of innocence and inexperience about him. Its as if he is seeing each thing for the first time and stops to observe quietly and with curiosity, learning from each new experience and encounter. We had to pull over to let horses pass, he just stood and watched quietly. We met a terrier enjoying his walk on the common, digging a hole, (as terriers do!) and Hector lay down to observe. He passed Jupiter in the paddock and did a lovely calm running along play with him the other side of the fence. We went to the stream and first time he took a little drink but was reluctant to get his toes wet. Today he was paddling about confidently, enjoying the water. He is so tuned in and keen to please, so such a pleasure to show and teach him new things.

Hector didn’t want to walk far today. He seems to be teething and wants to chew on toys.He kept laying down preferring to watch what was going on elsewhere in the kennels

So I took him to the walkers area where he could lie down with the walkers and get a bit of fuss.

Hector is such a lovely sweet dog. I really hope someone gives him his home soon.

I LOVE this boy we’ve only walked together twice but I’m hooked! What a beautiful and sweet natured boy who looks at you with the most pensive look when he wants reassurance.

We had a lovely walk today. He’s still keen on lying down when he’s unsure but is happy to get going again when he’s processed the situation.

Hector is going to be such a wonderful companion for a very lucky person!

Hector has been on of the 1st on my list every time I’ve visited RR since we were introduced. I LOVE this boy, HES SO CLEVER.
Today we did some work in the paddock as Hector has been a bit reticent to walk alone. In just a short time he learnt to much. As well as acing the agility Hector really impressed me by not only learning to recall but coming back and presenting with a beautiful sit! If that wasn’t enough he then went on to learn to touch my hand with his nose when using the command ‘touch’.
He really is such a beautiful clever boy. love4.gif
