Alan is a gorgeous, little, black and tan pup. When he was picked up off the street, it was evident straight away that he was a proper little character. Alan seems to think he is a rottweiler in a pinscher’s body! He loves attention and will run straight to you, as soon as he sees you. However, because of this, he seems to think all the attention should be just for him. He has sass and attitude. He drives the volunteers mad because of his determination to get all the attention, but we all love him. He would probably suit an only dog situation or maybe an older dog, who won’t take any nonsense.
Alan hasn’t been tested for cats and he would suit children over 10 years and he will be small.
His Best Points :
Such a cheeky chappy, who just wants cuddles and attention.

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.
