What a handsome, sweet and friendly dog Doug is. He has tan short coat white a white chest and he has a delightful character.
He is currently being cared for by an elderly couple who took him in because he appeared abandoned in the street.
Doug loves his walks and already sits when asked. For his age, he appears to be a very calm dog who just wants love and attention. He is currently living with 2 other dogs who were also abandoned. However, he doesn’t stay in the main part of the house so may require house training.
He gets a good walk every day and lots of fuss which is quite apparent from his relationship with the foster. If you look at the photos you can see how much he cares about him. They also have cats and he doesn’t seem to worry about them.
He is a very friendly easy going young man and would fit into most homes.

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 be activated from the link on our website.
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.
