Sprite's Story: Sprite was found abandoned and unclaimed within a East Mindlands council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Sprite will be neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Sprite came 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.

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

Sprite looks much better than his original photo above when found. He will be neutered on Wednesday.

How lovely it was to meet Sprite today and to walk him for the first time. He was so easy to harness and get ready for his walk and on his walk he was such a lovely walking companion to Pixie walked by Tricia. Sprite had a little bark when he saw Georgie, the rescue's resident cat and so I don't think he should be homed with a cat. He seemed very bonded with Pixie and liked her to be within his sight as we walked.
He is so gentle and so undemanding - I just can't wait to walk him again. bighug.gif

Today Sprite and I had another walk with his pen mate Pixie walked by Tricia. Sprite is just such a lovely dog - so calm,so undemanding, so affectionate.
The sun was actually shining for a while and Sprite had a little spring in his step as we went through the woods. He continues to want to stay close to Pixie and it is lovely to see the bond which has developed between them.
Once back in their pen they both enjoyed lots of treats and we left them to it to relax in their baskets.
Lovely boy. Kiss of love.gif

Had the pleasure of walking Sprite today with Pixie. Sprite is such a lovely boy , stops regularly to check that Pixie is still behind us and loved stopping for treats and a cuddle. Such a gorgeous boy!

I totally agree Anne and thank you for these brilliant photos.

Tricia and I have been walking Sprite and his room mate Pixie twice a week for the past few weeks.
He is just such an easy dog to walk and is so gentle and affectionate. If Pixie for whatever reason goes ahead then Sprite rushes to catch up with her - he likes her in sight.
It would be so amazing if these two could be homed together but I know that is a big ask.
Lovely, lovely boy. Kiss of love.gif

I am getting so fond of Sprite - he has a calm, gentle, loving nature and it is hard not to love him!

Today Tricia and I walked him and his pen mate Pixie. They look so lovely walking side by side, both the same colour and roughly the same height. Pixie so suits her name - her cute little face is always attentive as she looks for squirrels in the woods. Neither dog seems dog reactive but walk with loose leads by our sides, always in view of one another as they are so bonded. After the walk we took them into the paddock where Pixie had a great time racing around and playing with the ball. Sprite joined her for some zoomies but actually preferred to spend time being cuddled. He really is so affectionate. Kiss of love.gif

Yesterday Sprite and other dogs joined me to travel into Central London to attend a Vet Training day. This was a very special day as it was for 3 or 4 Vets to use specialised Equipment to examine and record the inside of the eyes. It involved them having drops to dilate the pupils and then be dark conditions for 2 hours with the vets wearing red lamps. They examined the eye and attached a contact lens to the left eye first, then right eye then used a hand-held, computerised machine. They needed a model patient to not only patiently acquaint themselves with an audience but then for over an hour to be passive during an intrusive examination in the dark.

Sorry didn't get so many pictures but Sprite was the one I was watching and he was amazing with everything happening to his eyes.

Sprite was exceptional and his Vets fell deeply in love.

Today Chris and I walked these two beauties for the first time. They welcomed us into their room with open paws and were really easy to harness up. They walked very well on the lead and didn’t mind mud or traffic – not even heavy lorries.
