His Best Points :
Foster Report :
Leo is great, gentle, loving and playful. He needs to be the only dog in the home environment because, although he shared his kennel with other dogs in the shelter, he in not prepared to share his foster home comforts with another dog and he finds the need to guard: food, toys, space with the other dogs here. He shows no sign of wanting to guard against us. We can take his food or toys without any threat from him, and move him easily if he’s in our way. He’s still a little nervous when out walking, particularly with strange men, but this is improving with the more experiences we give him. He is ok meeting other dogs out on walks.

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.
