BRUNO – English Bulldog cross, Male, 2 years old, Cjhipped, was a stray, reported good with dogs and people, will be neutered soon. More info and pictures to follow next week after he arrives into a CARE Foster home.
For more info please phone Daphne on 01493. 653955.
LILLY – Spanish Mastin, Female (Neutered), 5 years old, Microchipped, Vaccinated, Good with dogs and children, Lily is a big dog and needs more space, would be great with another gentle laid back dog(s) and a reasonable size garden. Probably best with older children due to her size. Lily is not a boisterous dog, she is easy going and likes to lay about most of the time, a gentle laid back walk each day is fine for her.
Went to meet Lily yesterday, she is a big girl and is probably a stone heavier than these photos show. She is affectionate and would settle in a new home quickly. She is a relaxed dog, not bouncy, just wants a quite loving life, good guard dog in that she barks at strangers outside.
Owner must rehome due to working long hours and moving to a small house with 3 other dogs.
For more information please phone Daphne on 01493 653955
TURKO – Mixed breed, Male (Neutered), 4 years old (DOB 26 Feb 2015), Chipped, Vaccinated, Has Pet Passport, Blood tested clear of all Mediterranean diseases.
Turco was in a shelter for most of his life, we have found out he was in a home for a short time and probably not treated very well by a man. He is frightened of strange men for about 15 minutes until he realises they mean him no harm, then he is their best friend. He makes friends with dogs fairly easily indoors and is a bit aloof to dogs when out in walks. The Foster mom is keeping him on a 10m long line but lets him run and play with dogs he knows. He loves to chase the ball and is very fast.
Turko is good a very loving, affectionate dog who craves fuss and affection from people, He plays well with dogs he knows and is a real nice boy, Clean indoors, calm and gentle. He is good with women and children and very loving. He needs a family who can provide him the love and security he so desperately craves.
If you feel you may be right for Turko then please phone Daphne on 01493653955.
TEDDY – Lurcher, Male (neutered), 18 months old, Vaccinated, Chipped, 27 inches at the shoulder, Good with children (lived with 4) and adults, Good with dogs, loves to run and play. He is clean indoors, . He is good on lead and is a loving and good boy who needs a gentle, kind and loving forever home.
Teddy was given up by his mom because of her health problems. He has been with us in our home with 8 dogs since late Dec 2018. He is generally confident and friendly and a bit excited when visitors arrive but very quickly settles down. He really is just a big puppy who desperately needs someone to love and be best friends with. He knows Sit and Down and his recall is absolute fantastic and he is starting to do Scent Work which is going very well. He is happy to sleep in his crate and be in the crate when left.
His only downside is that Ted has IBD. We have been to vets for the past few months and now feel we have a handle on this condition. Ted will need a special dog food and daily meds probably for life so his cost will be about the same as a good quality dog food for any large dog, while his meds will be very roughly £25 per month and should reduce over time. We are being honest here as we do not want him to go to a home where the food and medication plan will not be strictly followed, we have nursed him thru a very bad time with weight loss, etc, now he is much better and we don’t want to compromise his health.
He is sweet and innocent but with a touch of mischief and od be extremely lovely most of the time. He counter surfs and steals food when he has a chance but that is usually our fault for not putting things away, otherwise he is good around the house. Clean indoors Teddy is a really nice dog but still a bit of a puppy in his head. Don’t miss a chance to share life with this wonderful boy!

MARIUS – (now Mauri)– Labrador x, Male (Neutered), 5 years old, Vaccinated, Chipped, vet checked and disease free, Has Pet Passport. Marius is good with male and female dogs as he lives with both. He has not been around children and we would therefore not want to place him in a home with young children.
Marius was a street or maybe forest dog for a few years then caught by the dog catchers (who can be and usually are brutal). A vet took him away from the public shelter and kept him with her and several other dog for 3 years. This vet helps dogs where she can and homes thru UK rescue when possible.
Marius arrived on 11 Mar and has been in our home with 8 other dogs. He was very scared of anything new or any sudden movement or noise. He is now getting much better and become very affectionate to us. He is protective of the home and us, NOT aggressive but barks to warn us and stops when we ask him to. He is really a lovey boy! Mari would best suit a home with older children, or adults only which is quieter and not raving busy. He will need a few weeks to settle down, lots of treats and gentle handling to realise you mean him no harm and to bond to you.
He cannot be let off lead and is a hunter, very keen on squirrel, rabbit and any small furry animal when on walks in the forest, so we think he must have roamed a woodland and survived by catching/eating the small animals. If off lead and went after game, he would not return easily, so it will be months of training and bonding before he could be let run free.
He is very affectionate and loving dog, he needs kindness, not pack leader or dominance, that would drive him into a very dark place which we have slowly and very successfully eased him away from and into the light of trust and bonding with humans.

The trial home for Tashie didn’t work out thru no fault of his, so our special boy is back with us until a special person comes along.
TASHIE – Mixed Breed, Male (Neutered), 7 years old (DOB 5th May 2011), About 15 inches at the shoulder, Chipped, Has Pet Passport , Good with dogs, Likes people but is scared until he builds some trust in you, we are told he ignores cats, He loves treats and deer antlers. Tachie is a really lovley little dog who had such a bad start in life, He needs a calm home where he will be given time to come out of himself and learn that people can be kind and loving,
His Mother was abandoned when heavily pregnant on an Industrial estate, She was taken to a local Dog Sanctuary where Tashie was born. He has been in shelter all his life and deserve a loving home, He is here in our home with our 6 dogs and doing well.
He is now coming out to get treats with the other dogs and going for walks every morning which he enjoys at his pace, started to sniff and mark now so a sure sign of more confidence.
Tashie is shy, but so desperately wants to be friends and find that special person to trust and love, to take him home and make him safe forever. Tashie is the essence of rescue, given time, security and love he will flourish, are you ready to be loved unconditionally and to loose your heart

The dogs below are shown on behalf of Life into Balance Dog Rescue which is run by our friends and is separate and independent from CARE.
Boadicea – is a very dear girl. Shy and nervous she needs time and lots of love. Boadicea is 3 – 4 yrs old, she waited for over 2yrs in the public shelter. Here in our home she is doing better than expected as she was so anxious in the shelter. She is more bronze than black close up and is unusual to look at . Relatively calm considering what she has been through. She is walking nicely on the lead but is a little bit nervous. She will be looking for a home when she is ready. Somewhere quiet, patience will be needed for this lovely girl. She is neutered vaccinated chipped and has her own passport.
If you would like more information or a chat about Boadicea please call Lisa on 07843050396 or email [email protected]
HUGO – What a beautiful boy – Hugo is 2yrs old and has come to us from Adjud public shelter in Romania where volunteers work very hard for the dogs but supplies, food and facilities are inadequate – dogs are hungry, scared and overcrowded. Hugo is nervous and will take a little patience but he is a handsome, beautiful, gentle soul. He is vaccinated, neutered, micro chipped and has a passport. Already his character is showing as he is hoarding all kinds of toys and tea towels and things he finds in his bed. He is quite a large dog but doesn’t seem to know it as he is timid with feisty smaller dogs, but he is starting to play with some of the gentle small dogs in our house – even letting the little ones get into his bed with him. He is living here with 15 other dogs and I haven’t seen him as much as grumble or snarl. This is a beautiful boy – just waiting for someone to love him.
For more info or to chat about Hugo call Lisa 07843050396 or email [email protected]
BRUCE ARTHUR – is a beautiful boy – so named after his sponsors Father – This is a large size, very handsome dog. He seems to think he is small, he always crams himself into a very small bed : )) He is quite nervous but is beginning to show happiness & excitement when he greets us and out on his walks, he is a very gentle boy, never argues with the other 15 dogs here and is submissive even with far smaller dogs. Bruce is 4yrs old according to his passport but I would have guessed him as a bit younger. Bruce had been in a public shelter in Romania for over a year when we bought him here. He is vaccinated, neutered, micro chipped & has his passport. This wonderful dog is just about ready to begin his new life and I am certain he will be a very loyal and loving companion.
For more information or to meet Bruce please contact Lisa 07843050396 or email [email protected]
