Tufas is a absolutely lovely boy, he is a small labrador cross with a gorgeous short smooth gold and white coat.
This poor boy ended up needing a new home through no fault of his own. His owners movied and sadly decided there was no room for him in their lives anymore.
He is an absolutely lovely boy, he enjoys his walks but is just as happy lying by your side having a fuss. He is very food motivated so is easy to bribe but his new forever home may need to resist giving him too many treats as he is a little overweight!
We think children over 12 years and no cats and will happily live with a female dog.

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.
