Rigby is a gorgeous, young lad with a light, tan, fluffy, semi long coat, and  black masked face. We think he looks a bit like a retriever! Rigby was abandoned as a very young dog in a local Spanish village. He lived there with all the feral cats and was fed by the locals – one man would always leave his garage open in the bad weather so Rigby could have shelter, but Rigby would never get close enough to be caught, but eventually he caught and now he is safe with us. As expected, Rigby was a quite shy to begin with but to our surprise he came round very fast and is now a total love bug, loves his cuddles and lots of attention.
Rigby gets on well with his kennel mates but definitely has his favorites which are the girls, he currently lives with larger and smaller males, medium and smaller females and a 5 month old puppy male, they all sleep and play happily together. Rigby loves his walkies and is calm and polite on the lead he can be a bit nervous of new loud noises.

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.
