Handsome and loving Rene is a young Vizsla/Lab cross, with a short, tan, soft coat standing at medium height. Rene adores people, including children, and we advise over 10 years as he is very bouncy. He loves his toys, especially playing tug of war and fetch and he will play for hours on his own too with his squeaky toys (he is a ‘strong’ toy chewer so needs tough toys).
Rene adores cuddles and love and will happily lie on the sofa with you cuddling and soaking up all the love and is very affectionate back. He gets on well with the other dogs and children in the house. This gorgeous boy wants to be with you all the time and he cant wait for his walkies – he has boundless energy but he is a very quick learner as he is food obsessed.
Has learnt sit and wait. Is improving his loose lead walking.
Poor Rene has blotted his copybook and lost his home because he has been threatening the residents cats. The family are gutted he has to go but feel they have to protect the cats. He is staying in the home as a foster until he gets a new home.
This is some of the things the owner says about him……..
Has got used to Lying quietly in the crate while we work. But if impatient to come out, will tell us!
Almost always clean in the house now. Sleeps through at night – no howling etc. But absolutely cannot live with small furries ie  cats. Reactive and high prey drive when out walking to sheep/lambs, horses, birds, squirrels etc.
We love him to bits and will be heartwrenching when he goes. We have tried so hard to help him accept the cats.

His Best Points :

Is OK with other dogs – would really like another dog to play with.

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.
