Timmy - male, castrated and fully vaccinated. DOB 20/02/2020

When we rescued lovely Boo we were told his best pall Timmy also needed a home so how could we say no? At the time Timmy was recovering from surgery to fix both his front legs as a result of being hit by a car. He was found last year in November, after he spent 24 HOURS ON THE COLD CEMENT in the middle of the city. He was sleeping in the freezing cold after being hit by a car with 2 broken front legs and hip. His rescuer ensured he had immediate surgery and he spent the next few months crawling and was unable to walk for quite some time.

Timmy then went off to the foster where he narrowly escaped death a second time after someone threw antifreeze over the fence and killed the other dog he was living with. Sadly Timmy also damaged his hip in the original accident so once he arrived with us he went back to the vets to have his femoral head removed.

For this reason we are looking for a very special family for Timmy. He will never be a 'normal' dog going on extra long walks and hiking up mountains BUT he will make someone the most loveable companion if he is given the chance. He gets along great with other dogs and is even good around cats. I cannot begin to tell you how totally adorable this dog is. He is just the sweetest, kindest and most gentle of souls and nothing he has been through has affected his amazing nature. What he lacks in physical ability, he makes up for tenfold in the temperament department.

Timmy walks well on a lead and is house trained, but does need a home to have direct access to a secure garden where he can potter about as the length of walks he can do will be limited.

If you are interested in adopting Timmy please complete an application form at the link below. You can read all about the process of adoption on our website and we suggest you do this before applying. Homecheck and adoption donation of £500 will apply. https://www.savingandrehomingstrays.org/dog-application-form Thank you xx

Baby Boo - male, not castrated and fully vaccinated. DOB 20/06/2023
Poor Boo was found laid in the street with not only one, but both of his back legs broken. He laid in the street in exactly the same spot for two days as he was unable to move and no one went to help. When our rescuer was eventually called and went to his aid he was laid on a pile of poo as he’d not been able to move far enough to get out of it. He was seen by vet and had both his legs operated on with special fixings and spent a number of months recovering in the vets with his best pal Timmy (also looking for a home).

His home needs to have direct access to a secure garden. Boo is house trained and walks on a lead and is just the sweetest dog you will ever meet. He cries with joy every time you come back from being away and hangs onto your clothing following you round the yard and just wants to be loved.
After everything this poor boy has been through it is amazing that his capability to live remains intact and although he is physically imperfect he is perfect in every other way.

Juna - DOB 03 May 2023 - female. Spayed and fully vaccinated.

Juna is one of two siblings we were asked to take on as their rescuer could not find any other solution for them. They are now nearly 10 months old and before coming to SRS lived their whole life (since being rescued as tiny babies) in a stable and are desperately needing their freedom and a family to call their own. These lovely sisters were dumped in a forest with their other siblings and whereas the other pups were all adopted, Jura and Fina did not get any interest as they were the largest of the litter which is such as shame as they are beautiful dogs. Since being with SRS they have enjoyed spending time with the other dogs in our care, especially Rory who can match them in size. They are typical playful pups who are looking for families willing to put in the work and training they will need including lead, house and recall training. They enjoy living with other dogs but have not been tested with cats. The girls have had no training and do not currently walk on a lead, so direct access to a secure garden where work can be done on this is essential. Applicants must have secure gardens (at least 5 ft fences/walls) and no small children due to their large size. We want them to have a life of fun and adventures with a family who will love them completely.

Little Reena came into our rescue after being abandoned with a temporary fosterer with two old Bichons. She is a kennel club registered (very tiny) Frenchie (weighing only 7.8 kilos), is about 7 years old and is an absolute sweetheart.

Reena is a very special little dog and although not disabled in any way, she has clearly had some growth (birth) defects and has a very short body and rather barrelled chest. As communication with her original owner has not been difficult we have not been able to get a full medical history, but she does have quite bad scaring on her head and on one side. The scars make it look like she has been attacked by a dog, but her orginal owner says they are the result of a traumatic birth as she did not take the mother to have a C section (when one was clearly needed). As my vet was unsure as to the cause and as we didn’t have any medical history on her have carried out spinal x-rays and ran full blood works and although Reenas spine is severely deformed she is healthy in every other way. (She has now had a full dental, being spayed and is up to date with her vaccinations).

All of these things just make Reena even more special and she is just like a little baby, who would let you love her all day. We do think she would fare better as an only dog (or with another very gentle dog) as she is such a special little girl and would rather be cuddled than play with the other dogs.
She is house trained, crate trained and lead trained as you’d expect from a dog that has been a pet all its life. Little Reena would be perfect for a home with older people and whilst she could live with older children we do think at this age in her life she would prefer a quieter home where she was the centre of attention.
If you think you have room in your heart and home for little Reena please pop onto our website and complete an application form. A virtual home check and £500 adoption fee will be required. Thank you x

Rory (DOB 5.2.23) is an adorable nine month old puppy boy. He was found chained in the middle of nowhere with no water when he was about three months old. We took him under our wing and prepared him to travel. Rory is a lovely young dog who will be on the larger side when fully grown. He is fine with people and other dogs and has also been around young children however due to his size we would recommend older children. He is fully vaccinated, has had all the necessary tests to travel, but is not castrated due to his age . We do not recommend that larger breed dogs are castrated until they are around 12 to 18 months old. Rory is looking for a family that will give him adventures and an active life and will continue with his puppy training. If you think you could offer Rory the loving home he deserves please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form. An adoption fee of £500 will apply.

Travis is a mixed breed (we think with some GSD) from Romania born on the 30 Oct 2017 and came into rescue along with his 2 siblings and has not been rehomed with them yet due to his disability. He has been with us in the UK since May 2018 and now we would love to find a very special home for this very special boy.
Travis was born with issues in his hips and the many vets in Romania diagnosed many different things but it was only when he came into our care and seeing our vets (and having more X-Rays) that we confirmed a diagnosis.

Travis does not have any hip sockets – they never formed. So his hips do not stay in place and move about which he moves. He has never needed any pain relief and is a strong dog and copes very well and isn’t in any pain. Initially our vets said he should be PTS but after seeing him playing very happily, in no pain and with the strength that he has in his front end he agreed he has a great quality of life and deserves a chance to live it to the full. He loves running round the garden and playing so needs a nice big garden and lots of space. We do need his home to have an understanding vet who is willing to work with us if necessary for any decisions on his future treatment and this would be part of our adoption contract.
Fabulous with other dogs especially boy dogs. He loves to play out with the boys.
Travis can be a funny with new people and can be a bit barky. It doesn’t take him long to warm up and we think it’s a bit of territory guarding as he is fine when out and about.

Travis walks fine on a lead and travels well in the car and has been well behaved at the groomers.

Travis would be perfectly happy in a home where he never goes for a walk as long as he has a big garden to run around and people to give him love and attention. He is a very sweet soul.

If you this you can offer Travis the extra special home and family he needs we would really like to hear from you. Please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form. Please note a home check and adoption donation will apply x

Zara is a pure bred GSD bread in Romania born on the 27 June 2019 and came into rescue due to her disability. She has been with us in the UK since November 2019 and now we would love to find a very special home for this very special girl.
Zara was born with issues in her hips and the many vets in Romania diagnosed many different things but it was only when she came into our care and seeing our vets (and having more Xrays) that we confirmed that she has the same issues as one of our other wonky dogs.

Zaras hip and ball joints did not form properly so do not stay in place so they move about which she moves. Even though Zara is quite long and tall she still copes well and isn’t in any pain. She loves running round the garden and playing so needs a nice big garden and lots of space. We do have some wheels that can fit her, however as she isn’t actually paralysed her back legs don’t bend and they point forward so don’t work well in a typical cart but there may be different options that can be explored. We do need her home to have an understanding vet who is willing to work with us if necessary for any decisions on her future treatment.

Zara adores loves everybody. She gets on great with most dogs especially little dogs and could potentially live with another small dog. She is not as happy with bigger dogs and can sometimes growl and snap but will never start a fight. She could also live with children and she is a lovely soul.

Zara does have a sensitive stomach which is a common problem in GSDs. She has had lots of tests and there is nothing wrong but it can be a problem keeping weight on her as she doesn’t process food properly. She is on a special diet and takes probiotics at the moment and we are also about to try her on a raw diet to see if this helps. As a result she is skinny. This is a balance for Zara as being lighter helps her get about and having too much weight on her may limit her mobility. Zara is booked in for a dental cleaning later this month as she does have a tendency to hoover up food and sometimes a bit of poop!

Zara is fine on a lead, travels great in the car and happy at the groomers.
Zara would be perfectly happy in a home where she never goes for a walk as long as she has a big garden to run around and people to give her love and attention. She will sit and ask for attention as she loves a cuddle.

If you this you can offer Zara the extra special home and family she needs we would really like to hear from you. Please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form. Please note a home check and adoption donation will apply x

Gracie (DOB 15/11/15) medium sized approx 22-22 kilos and in foster in Ayr, Scotland. Gracie is the happiest most loving dog you will ever meet. She loves everyone she meets from the second she meets them and is usually in her back within 5 seconds wanting tummy tickles ...

Gracie came into rescue as a pup with her two sisters Babe and Dolly. She was adopted fairly quickly along with one of her siblings, but through no fault of her own returned about 3 years later after a relationship breakdown where no one was in a position to take both dogs.

Upon their return it became very clear that neither dog had been socialised during this time and further investigations revealed that as both dogs had been reactive on the leads as pups their owners had just avoided any contact with other dogs rather than working to resolve their issues.

Dolly was rehomed by an amazing couple who worked very hard to make her into a fantastic dog friendly dog, but sadly Gracie was not so lucky. She was in rescue for quite some time (living happily with a group of dogs after careful introductions) before eventually being adopted by what seemed at the time to be a perfect family.

Luck was not on Gracie's side yet again though, when she was once again returned to rescue because of alleged dog reactivity problems and a behaviourist who had said she could never live with another dog.

Before we bought Gracie back into rescue this time through, she was sent away on a residential training / assessment course where the trainers confirmed our belief that with correct introductions and an experienced owner Gracie can indeed be the most amazing dog in the world.

Within two days of being back in rescue Gracie was living in the main house with 5 other dogs she had never met before. She is a very submissive dog, who will react to other dogs in order to get them to stay away from her, but once she has been introduced properly she is the most playful dog you could wish to meet.

Since moving to our new site, Gracie no longer lives in the house as we don’t have the facility to have smaller groups here and she would be very stressed living with the number of dogs we have indoors. She now lives in our fabulous converted workshop with her two best pals Muffin and Rupert and spends her days chasing and playing with the boys.

You could not meet a more amazing dog than Gracie. She LOVES people and so deserves her chance to finally have a family that will work with her to overcome her fears ... She would suit many different homes, but we would like to see her in a more rural location with owners who will give her the time and space she needs to reach her full potential regarding her dog relationships. She also requires a cat/small furry free home.

If you think you can offer Gracie her forever home please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form. Please note a home check and adoption donation will apply x

Tessa and Tosca Female crossbreeds, 20 June 2018, neutered.

Must live in a child free, pet free and dog free home and would ideally be rehomed together.

Tessa and Tosca were in a shelter together for 3 years before coming under our care. During that time they were well cared for, but did not receive as much human attention as they perhaps needed. As a results they came to us as very timid pups and have both been adopted separately and come back to us as they were too timid apart to live in a home. We would therefore love to see these girls adopted together as they rely on each other for their confidence. At the rescue they enjoy playing, sleeping and cuddling. Tessa and Tosca have done a little lead training at the rescue, but we would need a family willing to put in the time and effort to gain their trust and work on their training slowly and with our support. We know it’s a big ask to find these two a home together, but we like to dream big for our dogs. If you have the time, patience and love for these girls please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form.

Mischu Male crossbreed, DOB 01/05/2012, castrated.

Must live in a dog and pet free home.

Mischu came to us with his sister Iza after spending 8 years in a shelter with very little human socialisation. When they came to us they were very scared and shy dogs. He is very bonded with his sister, but isn’t keen on other dogs so if they are rehomed separately it needs to be into a pet and dog free home. When they arrived they were both very scared of everything, but over time have relaxed into life here and become firm favourites with our volunteers. Mischu is the most confident of the two, but his little sister Iza definitely wears the pants in their relationship. Mischu loves doing the zoomies, snoozing, food and a cuddle. He will need work on lead training so his family will need a secure home and garden to begin his training. If you can offer him love, comfort and patience we would really like to hear from you.

Iza Female crossbreed, 01/05/2012, neutered.

Must live in a dog and pet free home.

Before coming into our rescue Iza had spent her entire life living in a shelter. She had been rescued as a puppy (along with her brother) by a well-meaning rescuer, but 8 years later was still sitting in a pen having never known much social interaction. As a result she arrived with us as a very timid little thing. Over time her confidence has grown and she is now an absolute delight. She loves a good fuss and cuddle and despite being much smaller than her brother, she definitely is the boss out of the two. She is a friendly lady and is happy with new people pretty quickly after being introduced and she really loves to snuggle. She will need work on lead training so her family will need a secure home and garden to begin her training. If you can offer her love, comfort and patience we would really like to hear from you.
