Ringo is one very handsome looking boy that we have. He has a tan and white short smooth coat and he stands at medium height about the size of a Labrador.
Ringo is such a lovely, friendly, happy but lively boy.  He loves his walks but is quite strong and needs to learn how to walk properly.  He is very enthusiastic about his walks but loves his cuddles also.  Ringo came to us after being found on the street.  The owner was known but he didn’t seem very enthusiastic about coming to claim him.  Probably the fine for no chip and vaccination was more than he thought the dog was worth.  Ringo certainly doesn’t act his age (if the vets report is indeed right).  He would be happy living with another dog but probably a female would be better.
We are training him with a Halti and although he doesn’t like it much we think he will soon get used to it.

His Best Points :
Really happy and sociable character, very enthusiastic

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.
