Gorgeous Dexter boy is a medium-sized, young Pointer mixed with Spaniel. He has a tan and white, soft, short coat and some pretty dappling. Dexter has blossomed into such a happy and loving little boy, from a quivering wreck when he was first rescued.
Dexter was running around the streets for a while and no one could get close enough to catch him.  He was so hungry, he eventually followed some dogs on a walk back into their garden and they managed to catch him. Poor boy was literally skin and bone when he arrived and was taken into foster to help build him back up again.
He’s now a very sweet-natured, little boy and loves to play with his doggy friends. He will now also seek out love and cuddles from people. Dexter can still be a little timid with new experiences, so his potential adopter must need a little patience and give Dexter time to settle into his new life.
We think he needs another friendly dog to live with to give him that bit more confidence. Has been around cats and was not interested in them. Dexter has never lived with children but has met children and was kind and gentle with them but being a slightly nervous dog, we are looking for children over 12 years please.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog

Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance  FREE, to apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.

All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.

For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas

This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
