Rouco is a gentle giant of a dog, very handsome and he has a black coat that makes him look like a Retriever. He is a friendly boy and loves his walks and his owner and this is why the poor boy is looking for a new home. Rouco came from Spain at 8 years old and who can tell what awful experiences he has had, possibly in kennels from most of those 8 years.
He’s never been taught to walk nicely on lead, so he pulls to get to sniffs and to say hello to other dogs. He is being left a lot too and the owner wanted to take him out in his car a lot but the poor boy hasnt been in many cars and hes not used to them and being left. Everything new to him should be in moderation and unfortunately, it wasn’t done like that and after less than a week the owner wants Rouco out.
Rouco is now in kennels in South Yorkshire and we are looking for a home for him, with or without other dogs, with people that will work with him and his new experiences and not leave him for too long on his own. This boy has so much love to give and we all thought he has got his big break but it wasnt to be so now hes back to square one again. He’s not had much experience of children but teenagers will be great for him. Sorry but we have no photos of him in his new, albeit temporary, home in the UK despite asking for them

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.
