From Teresa Cargill
**** SPARKLE IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ****

I have just had to stop myself from sharing hundreds of photos of this little dot with you; her foster Mum has shared so many of her antics and they are hilarious. We have seen zoomies in the snow - just enough for toileting, nothing too excessive! - shouting at the hoover - when not even in use! - and killing her stuffed toy that is larger than her! And don't even mention the carnage in the bathroom when she thought she was a Labrador and shredded every toilet roll she could set her jaws to! And all this from a pint-sized little thing who didn't even seem to know how to play when she arrived at her foster-home. She has certainly made-up for lost time now! We know her foster-parents have fallen for her charms in a big way because she didn't even like cuddles to begin with but is a cuddle monster now, but they may not miss clearing up after her antics!

Sparkle is not a naughty dog by any means, she has not put a paw wrong - toilet rolls, newspapers and stealing from the laundry bin don't count. We are just glad that her Frenchie spirit has shone through, live and well.

She is not a fan of cats or other dogs, sorry - more work is needed to improve her tolerance of other dogs but it was incidents in the previous home with the resident dogs that saw her handed to us initially. She does enjoy calmer children and will happily snuggle up to them. She is not quite 2 yet but her floppy ear and sticky-out tongue give her a more worldly-wise appearance - yes, it is always out to some degree, poking fun at the world.

Sparkle's foster-Mum had a chat with her and this is what they came up with:

"How sweet am I, everybody likes my tongue says it makes me look cute, I am that cute I have just thrown all my toys out of there basket, done my zoomies round the lounge including jumping from one sofa to another, quick snooze before the next mad 30 mins or so. While out on my morning walk I actually saw another dog which is quite a rare occurrence living here, I don’t mind though cos I don’t like them at all I am quite happy just having humans as my friends & I don’t mind if they are small or big they are all great fun to play with or snuggle up to which I might add I love now ( a nice warm lap especially) I don’t need any four legged friends. X"

Succinctly summed up really. Sparkle will be spayed before leaving her foster-home so if you and your family want a little pocket rocket with quirky little habits, please read on.

From Teresa Cargill
**** INTRODUCING RUDOLPH WHO IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ***

NO prizes for guessing when this lad joined us? And yes, another who needed to be introduced and so here we are with value for money - intro and adoption post!

Rudolph is around 2 years old and has been truly gorgeous in foster. He was in a lively home with a young child previously and he had very divided loyalties, not knowing whether to protect the child if the child was scolded, or to dislike the child when he was winding up Joseph. The poor lad was overloaded and anxious - the family found him very hard to manage and so surrendered him to us.

It seems that our Rudolph is your typical Frenchie in so many ways. Yes, he is a big lad for sure and would we say he is okay with other dogs and children? Not really 'okay' but 100% enthusiastic! This can of course be good or bad as his enthusiasm will need to be curbed to a manageable level, like all 4 paws on the floor please, but he is a wonderfully cuddly boy who is keen to please and be loved. His foster-carers have found absolutely nothing bad to say about him - but they are fostering and not adopting because that is what suits them better - and we are very happy with that too.

We maintain very close contact with our foster-carers and offer any and all support needed, and we do listen to their recommendations for the dogs, that is why we ask them to assess the dogs in the first place. Rudolph's fosterers have nothing but praise for him and have found him to be a very amenable and entertaining house-guest:

"I’d recommend that he goes to a home where he won’t be left alone during the day, and that they are able to give him lots of attention. He’d be good with kids, but gets very jealous when he isn’t the centre of attention so we are not sure how he’d be with other dogs. He does learn fast though, and we’ve noticed that his behaviour can change to adapt very quickly (usually after a day or two)

Other than that, he’s been absolutely brilliant and incredibly well behaved, so I don’t foresee any problems for whoever he goes to live with.

The best analogy I can give is that he is basically a giant lap dog. Is quite happy as long as he is getting physical contact."

Oh yes, and he might steal dusters ..... and knickers. And try to uproot small trees (wanted a stick!) .... and dance in the bath ........ this lad has character!

This is all very useful feedback for anyone interested in Rudolph. If you want a quite, small lapdog then Rudolph s not for you but if you want to be kept on your toes with LOTS of giggles, he is The One. I have to say that he is not tested with cats and would probably be rather too springy for them, maybe not for very young children either as we don't want to invoke any unpleasant memories, so probably 8/9+ years old and dog savyy, more from a respectful point of view than for Rudolph's needs. He clearly wont respect their space! Rudolph has a full-on 'HELLO' attitude, so be prepared as he is around 16kg. he is a solid chunk of a lad, 2 years old and about to be neutered (he doesn't know!). He needs a home who will love and entertain him and I am absolutely sure that he will return that tenfold.

If you would like to apply for Rudolph:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be found on this page in the 'files' tab at the top left or downloaded from the website.

**** INTRODUCING JOSEPH, WHO IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ****

It is odd to be bringing you an introduction and adoption together but things have been so frantic over Christmas/New Year and it was just before Christmas that Joseph came in to us in a bit of whirlwind. He has been VERY difficult (makes Cushing look like a kitten!) but has settled down now and been well-assessed ready for the right home. Due to his background he was almost feral when he arrived, spitting and snarling like an alley-cat - but again, it was bluster and bravado due to fear. We really are seeing some very disturbed pooches coming through now and although some are beyond help where medical issues exist with their neurological pathways, some just need to be understood and Joseph is just such a dog.

Joseph had literally been living rough on the streets with his owner and was passed around many people in the space of just one week before finally coming to us - to say that he was 'wired' was a definite understatement. We know some of his background and he was Previously a much-loved family dog but events conspired against him and we are not entirely sure how long he lived rough for; he is only 2 and so very capable of readjusting. He displayed a tendency to guard bags - not necessarily of food but just bags of anything and this is probably from his past of being with his human and needing to keep things safe. He was also a terrible food-guarder which was also understandable as he was thin and seemed permanently hungry, but now seems to know food is available regularly and so is improving, but this is still something to watch. He has begun to play with toys and is not at all possessive with them, seeming to enjoy a game.

We cannot emphasise enough how patient and experienced a home taking Joseph needs to be - which is exactly what his fosterers are but they are regular fosterers for our Problem Children, so wont be adopting him even though he has stolen their hearts now.

This was the update from Joseph in his foster-home:

"My name's Joseph and boy has my life been full! Chaos was one thing that my life always had but now I've landed on my paws and stability, love and play time is the name of the game now! The hoomans here both love me a lot and they understand that sometimes I forget that I won't be hungry here ever again and I don't have to fight to keep all my food to myself and there is always something else to eat coming soon. I lurrrve adult hoomans but the little ones bring back horrible memories and they scare me, my foster mummy thinks that maybe some nasty ones did horrible things to me with my lead and harness as I'm terrified of harnesses and very wary of having my lead clipped onto my collar.

I have two doggy pals here, another little frenchie girl like me and a big Husky cross Rottweiler boy. I love to play tuggy with them all but I don't like to share my bowl with them. The big dog he helps me most to feel safe and confident and I look to him when I'm usure, normally if he's calm I'm calm.

Foster mum here said that out the house I'm great, I walk pretty nicely on lead once it's clipped on and I like to meet all kinds of new dogs, I'm still frightened of the little hoomans but I just ignore them and walk a little faster past them. I don't like those big things on wheels either, foster mum says they're called lorries, vans and buses, I just don't like when they're moving fast near me but again the big dog helps me feel safe and as long as I'm on the inside and he's on the outside of the pavement I feel pretty safe.

Anyway time to go and cause some havoc somewhere, maybe we can tear up another stuffed toy together on the stairs or something."

So you see, he is very workable and desperately wants love and stability. He has been castrated now too so this is helping him to chill out a little. If you would like to apply for Joseph you need to be dog-free or have a bigger, calm dog that may help him feel safe, as the one in his foster home does. You will need to be very patient and accepting in the event of unwanted behaviours, which should be ignored, and Joseph may need some time-outs to de-sensitise because over-simulation is his absolute enemy. He cannot be with children at all, no exceptions, and needs a very calm quiet household with people who can be around him to earn his trust and reward his progress. Joseph is a very special boy who came very close - within hours - of being PTS because of his initial behaviour, but time, love and tolerance have been his friend so we cant let him down now.

If you would like to apply for Joseph:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be found on this page in the 'files' tab at the top left or downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly - also in the files tab and available on the website.

*** CUSHING IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION ***

Yes, you may be experiencing some deja vu as this is his second adoption post. Sadly things have not worked out for Cushing in his new home but he has not done anything terrible, please don't think that, but sometimes things just don't gel for the while family - and that is why we have our 2 week cooling-off period during adoption, the 'pre-adoption' phase, because it is vital that everyone in the household is happy.

I cannot emphasise enough how important it is that you search 'Cushing' using the 'search this group' feature on the FB page (to the left) or read back over his posts on the webpage, because Cushing is not easy, but neither is he a monster - he is a trier! And he has improved monumentally in his current home, he has been encouraged to trust and he now plays and cuddles beautifully. It is fair to say that his home have certainly taken him further along his journey of rehabilitation, but do expect an initial relapse and be prepared to work with that - support will be given. He does like to live with another dog, and I think the adorable photos demonstrate that point perfectly, but he can be a monkey with other dogs out and about and is not the kind of dog you take the pub with you, it just overloads him and he reverts to guarding/protection mode. You have to earn Cushing's trust slowly but once you do he is very devoted and loyal - I found this myself and it was a joy. That said, you need to also be kindly firm with him or he may guard his human inappropriately - he needs to feel safe so that it is not needed. A confident owner is needed for Cushing who sees past his bluster and bravado.

His current home offered these words:
"He is such a lovely companion, and is essentially the perfect dog, his growling he does is minimal now and actually cute [bluster and bravado]. He has a tendency to guard food, even if it’s in a separate room, from anyone who he deems below him. In our house it’s [wife] and Lola [other dog]. He gets on fine with Lola 99% of the time but did snap and bite when a treat was in sight, it was completely unpredictable. He has also met with other dogs on walks and been good as gold, just the occasional bark, but he lunged at a German Shepard, again completely unpredictable. The other dog was calm and happy, I think he may have been protecting me."

So that really sums up his insecurity - and he hates vets, a muzzle is advised there but this should be worked on and desensitisation with regular visits, just in and out, may help. He is such a cuddler though, loves human contact.

Cushing needs to be homed with an experienced person(s), much older children only (16+), no cats and a tolerant female dog. This must be his last move and so he needs someone very special, even a single-person home who can be around for much of the time. He is a lovely lad once he settles and it is just that which must be overcome.

If you would like to apply for Cushing:

1. Complete an Adoption Application form that can be found on this page in the 'files' tab at the top left or downloaded from the website. Before doing this please make sure that you fulfil the criteria required and read the Adoption Guidelines thoroughly - also in the files tab and available on the website.
