DOG OF THE WEEK - BUD. Lovely lurcher is Bud was living in a home for some time, but suffered from separation anxiety when his owner went out, even though he had other dogs for company. Bud gets so stressed and unhappy when he has no human company that his owner has made the difficult decision to sign him over to the rescue kennels, so that we can look for a new home for him. Bud needs a home where someone will be around for all of the time. As he has lived with two other dogs and got on well with them, he would prefer a home with another lurcher if possible, but can be an only dog as long as he always has human company. He loves children, so can go to a home where any children are over 5 years old. Bud is a typical playful lurcher and loves playing rough and tumble with his doggie friends. He does need a cat free home. Bud is in the kennels in Devon. Photo at http://www.straydogssanctuary.co.uk/dogs.aspx?d=0
We also take dogs from homes where they can no longer stay, e.g. because of a marriage break up or the death of the dog’s owner.
We take dogs of every breed, and our area covers Purbeck, East Dorset, Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch and the New Forest, and Devon, although we will always consider homes further afield, and have re-homed dogs over a very wide area. We have rescued and re-homed many hundreds of dogs since the rescue was started.
Many of the dogs that come into the kennels have been abused or abandoned and are in poor condition and often need medical treatment before they can go to their new homes.
The charity is run solely by volunteers and we receive no public money, and rely on fund raising events and donations to pay for the care of the dogs.
We always have dogs in our care that need homes. If you want to know more, or may be able to offer a home, please ring Judy on 01202 696685. We only ask for one adoption fee if someone gives a home to two of the dogs in the kennels.
If you have seen a dog on this website please telephone for a chat about the dog. We will ask you for information about yourself and your family - sometimes this may seem intrusive but we are trying to re-home our dogs in the best home we can, from their needs but also from yours so that your new dog has the best chance of fitting in.
The next stage in the adoption process is a Home Visit. We only do visits by appointment, after we have spoken to you about a particular dog. We do not visit in advance of having a possible pet for you as we like to match dogs and owners on a one-to-one basis.
If you do not live close enough for us to do a visit we can sometimes arrange for another rescue to see you on our behalf.
In certain circumstances if this is not possible we do re-home out of area, subject to a vets reference.
