** URGENT FOSTER HOME NEEDED **

Beautiful 10-month-old Indie came to the Shelter due to a change in family circumstances. Sadly, he is not at all happy at the Shelter so we are hoping to find a foster home for him as soon as possible.

We were told by his previous owner that he has lived happily in the home (with other dogs) but since arriving at the Shelter he has shut down and we have been unable to carry out our usual assessment process with him.

Indie needs an experienced, adult-only foster home where he can be given the help and support he will need to readjust to living in a home environment - he might like to live with a friendly dog who can teach him how to be a dog!

While in kennels he is very stressed and gets spooked by unfamiliar noises so he will need a nice quiet area in the home to retreat to and recover when he feels nervous. However, he does love food and enrichment items so in the right environment we hope he will do well, and we will start to see his personality coming out.

We are told that he has not been walked on a lead before and we haven’t been able to encourage him to use one during his time with us so his training will need to start from scratch once he has settled into his new home. Because of this, his foster home will need a secure garden.

If you could help this lovely lad come out of his shell, please email 👉 [email protected] 👈 or to see our pets waiting to be adopted, please visit 👉 www.gawa.org.uk 👈

Please note: Indie’s foster carer will receive ongoing behavioural support from our team and the Shelter will cover the cost of any veterinary treatment.

FULL TRANSPARENCY!! Regarding THE XL BULLY BAN

Here is what my insurance has emailed me today. Hopefully that will clear some of your questions and concerns.

Considering the government’s recent announcement to place XL Bully type dogs on the DDA (Dangerous Dog Act), we have reviewed our policy in order to widen it to include covering dogs on the DDA.

We will be able to cover banned breeds, subject to them having an exemption certificate.

It is a condition precedent to liability that for any dog which is a banned breed under the dangerous dogs act 1991 and/or as subsequently amended within the united kingdom the following guidelines are strictly adhered to whilst the dog is in your care, custody or control:

1. The dog is registered with the index of exempted dog (IED) and a copy of the life certificate is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.

2. A copy of the public liability insurance certificate for the dog is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.

3. The dog handler ratio is 1:1 at all times.

4. All guidelines under the index of exempted dogs are strictly adhered to and the dog must be:

i. Neutered

ii. Micro Chipped

iii. Kept on a lead and muzzled at all times

iv. Kept in a secure place, so it cannot escape


Below is the link for the Governments official definition of an XL Bully Dog:

Be assured I am based solely on INDIVIDUAL dogs, any videos or pictures posted have either been same household dogs or dogs that I know will team up nicely.

When we punish dogs for growling, we aren't helping them feel better about whatever it is that is threatening them. Instead, we are teaching to stop letting us know when they feel unsafe.

The result? A dog who stops giving warning signs and "bites out of the blue."

💚💚 Our mini main man Dodge!! 💚💚

He really is as awesome as he looks 🥰

Dodge has been back with us for over 9 months now and is desperate to get out of kennels. He gets so excited for his time out for walks and a bit of normality after growing up in a home. Dodge is a small to medium sized boy and is around 3 years old.

Dodge will thrive in a calm and quiet adult only home. He gets overstimulated by children and lots of noise so a home without children or visiting children would be ideal for him. Dodge also seems fearful of older men with white hair. We’re not sure why and we wish he could tell us 😞
He responds really well to positive training, praise and rewards! Dodge could live with another dog, he can be boisterous and a bit dominant with smaller dogs but soon calms down. He has a fantastic and funny personality once he has made friends with you and needs a person to commit to him.

Dodge is not suitable to live with small furries or children.

Dodge loves to go walking and is great on the lead! He would suit an active home who like to do lots of exploring.

Dodge is:
❤️ Neutered
❤️ fully Vaccinated
❤️ treated for fleas and worms
❤️ microchipped
❤️ good on lead
❤️ housetrained (although may need some reminding after being in kennels)
❤️ dog friendly

All of our dogs come with full rescue back up for life and 4 weeks free insurance. Dodge is located in South Wales. All applicants will need to undergo a homecheck and an adoption donation of £400 will apply.

Please share for our special little dude 💚

Someone definitely needs an Albert in their lives 🥺😭

Someone definitely needs an Albert in their lives 🥺😭

ALBERT

Albert is still looking for his forever home 😢He needs a quiet, calm home with owners prepared to help him with his anxieties and settling in. Albert has been with us for a year, his forever home is proving hard to find. We will keep trying - we know his special someone is out there! 🤞

Albert 11 years old. Despite his anxiety he is affectionate and cuddly ♥️ He is in good health, but has a bit of arthritis in his legs. He enjoys his walks - 30 minute quiet walks are good 🐕‍🦺 Albert needs a home where someone is around most of the time - to make him feel settled and secure. We are looking for a home for him no further than about an hour’s drive from the kennels in Stoke

If you want more details, Adorable Albert’s webpage is here…

Thank you to all my clients for keeping me busy busy busy!

Had Billy bear for a couple of hours on Saturday 🥰 Which could only mean one thing.. visiting La Petite Paws Patisserie stand at Battle of Evesham. Bills is spoilt everyday but we couldn’t resist spoiling him a little bit more!

This is part of the reason why safe & secure facilities such as ours are so important.

Coping with having a reactive dog can be daunting. Walk time can become the most dreaded part. What's more infuriating & upsetting is that most reactive dogs are made that way by other less responsible owners allowing their own dogs to infringe another dogs personal space causing a reaction through nervousness or just annoyance but unfortunately this situation is often in the forefront of yours & your dogs mind when you go out on a walk again making it an unpleasant experience for both dog & owner.

Tension born of apprehension from an owner who's dog has been attacked for had its personal space invaded by an unwanted 'playmate' can lead to their dog picking up on these vibes & feel like they need to defend or protect their owner. It's a vicous circle.

Our safe space allows you & your dog to enjoy exercise time with no interruptions. Whilst we understand that it may not be an option for every walk, we hope that perhaps having relaxed lead or off lead time may rub off in your normal exercise resume.

Excellent discounts available until the end of August, why not gives us a try 😊🐾
