    Happy and loving. 25 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. FOSTERED IN POOLE. DORSET. Charlie came out of holding kennels, so absolutely no known history on this lad. He is a beautiful boy who loves to play. He loves peoople of all sizes and dogs of all sizes. Fostered with one male lurcher and one female. He was neutered today and will be ready for his new home shortly. Charlie is house-trained. We think Charley would be happier rehomed with another dog in the home, or with someone around most of the time. We do not rehome dogs to anyone who works out of the home full time. I'm afraid due to past experiences, we do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. FOSTERED IN SUFFOLK. Tilly was lose for nearly 5 weeks when she was caught as a stray.

She was scared of the garden, but now is getting better on all outside walks and is having fun. She just needs some tlc and someone around most of the time. Due to past experiences, we do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references.

    Approx 3.5 years old. 25 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY IN KENT. Archie has been in the same family since he was 11 weeks old. He has not been an easy pup and some 3 year's old is still a little pickle. Lately the bitch of the family has started to retaliate at his antics and the family feel it would be best to split them. He has no recall off lead and can be reactive on lead with dogs he doesn't know and with some people he doesn't know. His relinquishing owners want the best for him and so are being completely honest about his needs. We do not rehome to anyone who works away from the home for more than 4 hours in any one day.

    Gorgeous. SALUKI X 25 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. FOSTERED IN CORNWALL. Sidney was found wandering. He served his time in holding kennels but was overlooked for several weeks. We had a space and brought him into Caroline for fostering just before Christmas. He has good social skills with other dogs. At the moment he feels that most things in the home are there to play with, including shoes, books and glasses! but is learning. He has recall, and that is being worked on within the pack quite successfully at the moment. We do not rehome to anyone who works out of the home more than four hours in any day. Due to past experiences, we do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    Happy and loving. 21 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. FOSTERED ON THE HAMPSHIRE/BERKSHIRE BORDER. Little Jingle was found wandering and came to us after her 7 days were up. She is the loveliest of little dogs and just loves everybody and every dog she meets.

She will be neutered shortly and will be ready for her new home. Jingle is house-trained. We do not rehome dogs to anyone who works out of the home full time. I'm afraid due to past experiences, we do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base.

    Superb sweet temperament. Should reach 25 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING FOSTERED IN BERKSHIRE. Her thread goes into 8 pages. Bambi was bought by a lad who didn't want her to stay in the situation she was in. When he got her home it was clear that she was seriously ill, very lot and lethargic. He rang us and asked if we could take her. After dropping her off at our SLR Vets she was diagnosed with parvo virus. It was not sure if she would survie, but she did. Four days later she was in the clear and came out into her foster home with Christine and her own 3 dogs. She is an absolute cuddle poppet. We are looking for an active home where she can have fun and run with like-minded dogs. and preferably another dog in the family - children families welcome. We need someone around most of the time.

    Superb temperament. 27 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING FOSTERED ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT. Bruce was found abandoned. He has an unrepaired knee injury to the front leg which we have had investigated. It seems to have fused at the bone, but doesn't seem to cause him pain, although we have him on loxicom and also green muscle additives. We have had all his legs x-rayed as he was so weak on the back end. He may have been crated for long periods, giving him muscle wastage. He is not a pretty sight, as he has multiple lesions on his face and body. We can only hazzard a guess at his fate before he was abandoned. Even through all that he must have endured in his life, Brucie has a sweet trusting nature and is starting to play. He is currently fostered with two female Lurchers and 3 children, and is loving it. He is a lovely lovable boy. He is neutered and vaccinations will start next week, when he will be ready for his new home. We want the very best home for his lad as his life must have been hell. We do not rehome to anyone who works more than 4 hours away from the home in any one day. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details. Or phone 07940 555 574 between the hours above.

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY SUSSEX BORDERS. This poor little mite was thrown over a 12 foot wall into a stable yard. She has clearly been crated in too small an area and her legs at the front are bowed.
