This stunner is Ricky a young white and tan Pointer boy, with a smooth short coat, standing at medium height.
What a beautiful boy Ricky is. He came to us a short while ago with another dog who were found on the streets, possibly been abandoned by a hunter.
When he came to us he was very scared but so wanted to trust. He had a nasty injury in his side which we think may have been caught by being impaled on something or being hit with a stick. This healed very well and Ricky started to gain confidence. He is still quite submissive and is a very sensitive dog. He loves playing with his fellow kennel mates and he loves attention and is learning to trust but is still wary with strangers. However, he is such a sweet dog we believe he will blossom in a home of his own where he is given the love and help he needs to gain confidence. We are working to get weight on him and we give him extra food. In sensitive and caring hands he is going to be an absolutely gorgeous companion.
He has not been tested with cats and we think he would like a home with another dog if possible and older children

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.
