Chelsesa - Adopt Me!






Django

DOB - MAY 2010 | Male | Mastiff

Django is a beautiful big teddy bear looking for a loving home where he can be an inside companion. It is likely that he has had a rough start in life as he does not trust easily, you must take time to get to know him and once you gain his trust he is soooo affectionate! He cuddles right into you and loves a good ear scratch but he does also think he is a lapdog so he will need training to teach him the house rules. Django is a big strong boy so his new owners must also be physically capable of taking him on daily walks. He is an awesome dog and once you gain his trust you will have a friend for life. 

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx 2 x 30 minute walks daily.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: No children.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Recommended for an only animal home. Cannot be re-homed with a cat.

Django has been with the Home now on and off for many months and has become more dog reactive as a result. This may be worked on over time. He also has some quirks around resource guarding and needs a home where everyone involved in his training is consistent. Can be fostered pending adoption.

Angus - In Foster

DOB - SEPT 2014 | Male | American Staffy X

Angus is a handsome young boy and like a big puppy he is still learning some manners. He has had a rough start to life and would love to find a family that keeps him safe. He is very intelligent and quick to learn. Angus enjoys playing fetch and tug and would require at least 2 x 30 minute sessions of moderate exercise and daily enrichment activities, Kongs and chew toys etc. Angus can be mouthy and jumpy so will need someone to be firm but fair and continue his training and build his confidence. He is well behaved when he has calmed down and is easily redirected if he gets over-excited. He would suit an only dog home and be suitable with teenage children and full- or part-time workers, as he doesn't mind being left alone and is happy and excited when you return. 

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx. 2 x 30 minute walks daily.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with children 13+.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Chelsea - In Foster

DOB - AUG 2007 | Female | Alaskan Malamute

Chelsea is looking for a loving home where she can retire in peace and enjoy her golden years. She is still quite a spunky lady that loves to go for a walk however was never taught how to walk politely on lead so does tend to pull. She enjoys having a garden to just stroll around and so she can sniff everything possible, she loves it so much that she would barely notice you there with her however in the home that is a different story as she is very affectionate! Chelsea also enjoys chasing a ball which you will get great entertainment out of as she is so uncoordinated. Just like us, she is looking for a companion to call her own.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx. 2 x 30 minute walks daily.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with children 13+.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

She must be re-homed with her man Harry as they have been together their whole lives and it would be cruel to separate them.

Chilli - Adopted

DOB - MARCH 2015 | Male | Boxer x

Chilli is a beautiful boy who doesn't take much time to warm to you. He greets you with a full body wag holding his toy teddy. He can also quite happily spend time alone in a yard but this is just until he susses you out. He isn't for the faint hearted as he does require work on lead with dogs but whoever decides to put the work into this boy will be rewarded ten fold. He has a lovely personality.

Chilli has been in and out of foster and kennels for more than half his short life. he has developed anxiety and will need owners will to work on this and that will mean going to a home with at least one stay at home or work from home parent.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I may be suited to a home 8+ years.

Lycan

DOB - MAY 2013 | Male | Mixed Breed

Lycan is just lovely and his dream home would be one with lots and lots of balls, he is not particular about the sport he plays because he loves tennis balls, rugby balls and footballs. He will play fetch for hours however has not learnt to bring them back to you so he will need training to improve this and teach him some manners. You will need a high fence because this boy can jump! Lycan is a very beautiful dog that enjoys being around people but will happily be on his own also. He is searching for that dream home and truly deserves it.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx. 2 x 45 minute walks daily.

Well I may be big but I like all people and most dogs once they are not rude and try jump on my back! I will need someone that can take me on walks, you must be strong because at the start of my walk I can pull quite a bit but I generally do settle once I realise I am not going back to kennel for a while.
