Sweet Perry is an older gent with a cream, soft fluffy coat, who has had a really horrible life so we want to help him get a better life for his retirement. This poor boy has spent his life on a chain.  No company.  Being fed every few days.  Now he is blind.  He has cataracts.  
He was first spotted by the rescue when he was still living on his chain, dirty, no space to wander round and all alone.  Although the owners had another dog, she was out of sight of him so they couldn’t even be close to keep one another company.  
Finally, after many weeks of trying to get them to give him up, the owners agreed to surrender him and he came to the shelter a week ago.  
What an absolutely delightful boy he is.  He’s slowly finding his way around by using his nose to the ground.  He is loving going out for a wander.  He copes very well with his disability and he’s always ready for a cuddle.  This boy deserves some happiness.

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.
