Name: Ben
Breed:

Lurcher/Staffordshire Bull Terrier Crossbreed  

Sex: Male
Age: 4 Years
Colour: Black & White
Dog friendly: Yes
Cats: No
Children: Adult

 

Please meet ECR's very loving and smiley, Ben.

 

Ben has been in our care for several years and is in long term foster at HQ.  

 

He gets on well with other dogs, though his play is a bit boisterous and he is very forward, so gentle introductions needed. He is exceptionally agile, and can leap very high (even from a stand-still or sitting position), so will need a very secure garden with a minimum of 6-foot fencing.  Ben does need a semi rural home where most of the off lead is in fields as not suited to a suburban park environment. Ben is very bright and eager to learn,  and all he wants to do, is to please you. He knows 'sit', 'come', 'down', 'paw', 'this way' and 'stay' and does a ‘high-five’. Ben has a wonderfully broad smile and a very bouncy, energetic nature. He will need regular off- lead running over open spaces to burn off some energy but the sight hound instinct is very strong and he is very prey driven, so will chase deer, squirrels etc and when on a scent is oblivious to the dangers of traffic and his recall. 

 

Ben is very bit timid when first meeting new people and isn’t an overly confident dog and would be best suited to a quiet home with a routine. He is particularly anxious when confined in a small space such as a car, crate or similiar and will growl  at approaching strangers, this is through fear. We are therefore looking for a special home that will use gentle methods of training and confidence building to bring out the very best in him.  He is a super boy and wants nothing more than to be cuddled and kissed -tummy rubs are a particular favourite!

 

Ben has gone to two separate potential homes whilst with ECR but sadly in the first home the resident female dog became jealous and did not want to share her home with Ben much to the heartache of Ben and his potential adopters. Ben was faultless in the home. 

Ben then went on a trial basis to another home where he was equally adored. This family lived in an area where his only off-lead running was in woods where there were Deer. It became apparent Ben has a high prey drive for wildlife and thus could not be let off-lead there at all. As Ben needs plenty of off-lead exercise to burn off his energy levels he has had to come back into the care of ECR. Ben can thus only be re-homed to a family where any off-lead running will not be in wooded areas where there are Deer.

 

All dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and  neutered  where medically appropriate.

Name: Ruby
Breed: American Bulldog cross
Sex: Female
Age: 7 years
Colour: Brindle & White
Dog friendly:

Can be choosy

Cats: No
Children: 12+

 

Ruby is a lovely affectionate girl, full of exuberance and is at her happiest charging around the garden with her toys and then coming to flop on you for a cuddle. She is quite a clumsy girlie and doesn’t realise her size or her weight (30 kilos) and likes to try and sit on your lap!! 

She underwent a cruciate and meniscus tear operation at the end of last summer which meant that walks and socialisation training were suspended for some months, the operation was a great success and she is no longer in pain and back to charging around the garden.  

Ruby is very much a people dog and loves nothing more than you to spend time in her company interacting with toys, treats and cuddles and is even very gentle with elderly people despite her normal clumsiness .  

She is a big favourite amongst all of our volunteers, even the ones that are not normally bullbreed lovers as she gives everyone such a wonderful greeting and is genuinely pleased to see them.Ruby is not keen to share this and as such we are looking for a semi rural home with a large garden where she can have some decent off lead playing and any walks can be onlead.

Ruby is currently in foster and her foster mum can confirm that she is easy to have around, happy to occupy herself with a bone or rawhide and take herself of into the garden to play with a toy. 

She greets everyone with a bottom wag and a smile and is good company and can be found beside you helping in the kitchen (she does counter surf!!) or on gardening duty down in the veg patch.

.

Ruby is extremely sensitive,  and always keen to please and loves any form of fuss, especially tummy tickles, please consider this big bundle of love.

 

 

Ruby  is vaccinated, microchipped and  neutered .

Sex: Male
Age: 7 years
Colour: Tri-colour with badger face - boken coat
Dog friendly: Currently working with a socialisation programme
Cats: No

Can you Help our ‘Special’ Little Man?

 

Jakey is a really affectionate tri-coloured Parson Terrier whose hobbies include playing with toys, doing tricks for liver treats and squirrel and bird watching.

He is very stimulated by noise, especially engine/traffic noise and the motion of any wheels.

 

We feel that he may have spent much of his early life outside near a busy road and amused himself by chasing the traffic and then when he became over stimulated chased his tail in frustration. 

 

He is very bright and very quick to learn new tricks but also very OCD and needs a very strict routine, we do feel that he is possibly on the Autism scale.

 

He is a loving little man and is at his happiest when he is with you but also needs some 'down time' on his own.   For this reason we are looking for a 'special home'- an adult only with terrier experience,  in a rural situation without other dogs, where he has access to fields for walking without having to journey in the car or walk along a road with traffic.

 

Jakey is a happy boy and so deserves a second chance, so if you would like to help him and work under guidance from our behaviourist, please get in touch. He will repay you a hundred times over with lots of  love and kisses

Jakey is neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped.
