Shelby is a gorgeous, medium-sized, young boy. The best way to describe Shelby is that he is a dog with a beautiful personality. He loves to sit on the couch and snuggle up to you and he loves hugs. Shelby is a dog full of life and joy, who loves to go for long walks and play. He is a really good companion.

 Shelby is good on the lead and in the car and also friendly with the vet! He has never been with children, but is very friendly with all our friends and family and just loves attention. Shelby is living with a family, who took him in to stop the breeder (was born in a litter of eight puppies) considering euthanasia as they were having difficulty homing all 8 pups. And it was their intention to keep him safe, with the hope of finding a permanent family for him.

He is now ready to find his forever home, with or without another dog and with children over 12 years.

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.
