RUBIO – Afghan x, Male (Neutered), 2 1/2 years old, Vaccinated, Chipped, Blood test clear.
The Spanish owner says he is very sociable with people and children from 2 to 14. A bit shy, takes a little while to build up his trust, then he is fine.
He says Ribio likes small dogs but not keen on large dogs but he lives with a Labrador, a Spanish Water Dog, a Chihuahua and the bully breed who fights with Rubio.
Rubio walks the beach and mountain routes off lead and does not run off. He mainly lives outside but when he comes indoors he is calm and well behaved.
CARE have an opportunity to get this dog out of a dangerous situation in Spain, but we cannot take him unless we have prospective homes lined up for him on arrival.
He gets on with most dogs, only the bullies and pushy dogs cause problems. Normal dogs are fine and he runs with them and enjoys their company.
The bully breed dog hates Rubio and so they fight, resulting in injury. The dogs are being kept apart at the moment but the owner will not keep them very much longer, so we have been ask to try to home him here in the UK.
If you are interested in adopting this boy then please let us know asap. IF we do not have any response then he will stay in Spain.

TEDDY – Lurcher, Male (neutered), 20 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. After treatment and finding the right food, Teddy is now off medication and doing well. He is on a salmon based dog food, good quality and available from Amazon. We tried other salmon based dog food which were not so good but this one has solved his problems and he must be kept on it.
He is sweet and innocent but with a touch of mischief and can be extremely lovely most of the time. He counter surfs and steals food (and shoes if left about lol) 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.
Phone Daphne on 01493 653955 for more information about this dog if you want to make a nice dog even better!!
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]
