Tess' Story: Tess was found abandoned and in a North East council pound and unclaimed by the family on her chip. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving her life. Tess is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Tess came in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting her 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.

Tess' progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Original referral information: Have you got space for a female Patterdale please? I will try my absolute best to hold but we have no emergency boarding

Tess is an easy Patterdale: That still means any future family and current handlers need to have their wits about them. She is alert to any wildlife and cats! Easy to handle and manage. Was spayed today and no problems with her with the necessary co-operation required. Tess gets people smiling... SWEET

Terrific Tess has come home with us for a few days. We had never met her before and she was very happy to jump in the car with us. I sat in the back with her and she seemed happy to sit on my lap and eventually settled. She even decided she needed belly rubs mid drive 0002.gif]
At home, we went for a walk around the block and she then settled on the sofa. She is very keen on belly rubs and will ask for more if you stop providing them - see video proof!
If you're looking for an adorable Pattie, do submit an application form, as this girl won't be around for long! :crossfingers.gif:

We're pleased to report that Tess slept really well through the night. We tried to persuade her to sleep in her own bed in our room - we even gave her two choices of bed - but she preferred to be on our bed. She was an absolute star. We got lots of kisses this morning. love4.gif
She has clearly lived in a house before, as she doesn't mind noises like the TV. And she's toilet trained. She's happy to do her business either in the garden or on a walk.
We went on a nice walk this morning and found out that Tess is great with traffic and takes directions very well. We have passed a few dogs and Tess pulls towards them in what seems to be friendly interest.
She would suit an active family and could be your perfect jogging companion, as she's still young and playful, but also really cuddly.
We took advantage of the sunny weather for a mini photoshoot to show you all what a pretty girl she is! love4.gif

Walked Tess for the first time the other day. She is a very easygoing, happy, friendly little dog, fine to handle (putting leads on was no problem and she enjoyed strokes on the head and sniffing my hand). I think she would have been quite happy to carry on walking all day! She thoroughly enjoyed exploring the woodland paths, especially the parts covered in leaves to snuffle around in. There must have been lots of interesting scents to follow as it was nose to the ground all the way. We saw a few squirrels and a mouse, all of which she was very interested in - if she was off lead I am sure she would never be seen again... she would have loved to follow those squirrels up the trees and race through the undergrowth following her nose...! Don't think it will be long until she is snapped up.

Tess is such a fun, loving girl! She's an impeccable house guest and is 100% house trained.
She walks really well on the lead and doesn't mind traffic or loud noises. She's a Patterdale Terrier so she wants to investigate everything, but she also takes directions very well. She does like to pull towards pigeons or squirrels or cats but she's easily moved along. She's met a few people on her walks and has brought smiles to everyone faces.
This girl just loves cuddles! She doesn't mind being picked up or wiped a bit after a muddy walk. She doesn't mind having her paws touched. She wasn't sure of the brush at first, but once I introduced her to it slowly, she rubbed herself against it and realised it felt good, so we had a good brushing session. She didn't actually shed much at all.
She doesn't guard her toys or her food.
Do submit an application form if you're looking for a wonderful Pattie!!

What a lovely foster break Tess enjoyed recently. Today it was raining for most of the day, the wind was blowing and the mud in the woods was almost knee high but none of this deterred little Tess who so enjoyed her walk. She was very easy to harness and seemed to love every minute of being outdoors.

She is such a pretty, endearing little pattie - small but compact and wonderful to walk.

She showed interest in birds and squirrels but was easily persuaded to continue her walk. She enjoyed lots of sniffs despite the heavy downpours.
I would think this little pattie would fit into a home very easily. Of course she would have to be kept safe because although she is an easy little pattie she is nonetheless a patterdale and has all the delightful quirks and behaviours of that wonderful breed.

So looking forward to walking you again Tess. bighug.gif
