REHOMING CRITERIA.

*****VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE**********

WE ARE BASED IN WEST SUSSEX

If you are going on holiday please do not apply for one of our dogs. We cannot hold these dogs it is simply NOT fair on them. So if you are NOT in the position to take them immediately (following a homecheck) DO NOT APPLY.

Sorry but we do NOT home to households with under 5's.

If you are outside our 20 mile radius then please only apply once you have been homechecked by a local rescue to you, your vet or your local dog warden and you have written proof that you have passed.

We do not know what our dogs are like with cats as we do not have cats at the rescue, it will be down to the new owner to cat train the rescue dog.

Sorry but all emails will be ignored that do not adhere to the above. The adoption fee varies from £150-£200. It is dependent on the age of the dog and whether or not it has been neutered. Often elderly or disabled dogs have only a nominal adoption fee. All the dogs are vaccinated, micro-chipped and vet checked. Adult dogs are neutered unless for some reason they can't be. Ages are often approximate as many dogs come without history. If you have problems with the application form please email us direct at allsortsdogrescue@gmail.com

BRANFLAKE (NO MORE APPLICATIONS BEING TAKEN)
HOUND CROSS
APPROX 5 YEARS OLD FEMALE SPAYED CAT FREE HOME

Branflake was adopted by a lovely family with a handsome Cocker boy. Unfortunately Branflake had to be returned after 2 days due to the dogs not getting on and the aggression escalating as time went on. This was a surprise to everybody as the cocker has never been known to be aggressive with other dogs and neither had Branflake. In fact Branflake shared her kennel with different dogs ranging from a chihuahua cross male to a lurcher female. Never any issue whatsoever. We can only assume (from what we are told) that Branflake relished all the love she was shown so much (as she had never had so much) that she didn't want to share. The cocker probably resented the intrusion and Branflake trying to hog all of the attention. Then it was very clear that neither dog wanted the other there. There was no problem out of the house. For this reason we feel that even though Branflake has been bombproof in a kennel setting, once she gets into an environment where lot's of attention is given (like in a normal pet home) she is not willing to share her space with another dog. Branflake doesn't have any socialisation problems with other dogs, she has lived her whole life with them. She seems to just resent sharing her people with another dog. We are told she was very good in the house. Just one accident on the first day. She slept downstairs without issue. Didn't chew or bark. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

HELTER
BICHON
APPROX 7 YEARS OLD MALE NEUTERED

He has not been used to living in a home so will need help with confidence building, house training, and learning how to be a pet. Many ex breeders cannot even walk on a lead. He will need a calm home with no children less than teen age. As he has always lived with other dogs he would need to be homed where there was another dog to help him. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs on our website before applying for any dog.

PEETA
BORDER COLLIE
APPROX 2 YEARS OLD MALE NEUTERED

Poor Peeta has developed kennel stress in his time with us. This is so common in collie types that stay for long periods. And as his stress levels have risen in the kennel environment they have in other areas too. On walks now he is frustrated by cars moving close by him (on our lane this is unavoidable sadly). We are doing our best to help him by kennelling him in quieter areas, providing food/toy enrichment, and exercising him with confident, laid back dogs. When the kennels are quieter and less busy Peeta is generally a much happier dog all round. The car herding is less intense and bikes/horses/joggers won't get a reaction. But when things get busy again his stress levels shoot back up. Peeta really needs to be away from the kennels so that he can have consistency and improve. He is such a lovely dog otherwise. He hasn't a bad bone in him and he has never, ever redirected his frustration on his handler, even when under extreme stress. He is good with other dogs and walks out with many different dogs (inc large males). He just needs a chance with someone who understands dogs and can keep Peeta under threshold so that he can continue to de stress, learn and be desensitised to close, moving vehicles. He is so keen to learn and do the right thing, and is so chuffed to be told he is a good boy. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

DALTON
SHEPHERD TYPE
APPROX 1YR OLD MALE NEUTERED

Dalton is clearly a Shepherd type but we're not exactly sure which type as we don't have any history on him. He does strike us as quite Malinois like. It is clear that no one has done much with him. Wearing a lead was obviously a new experience for him. Luckily he is a confident boy and he is taking all his new experiences in his stride. He is desperate to interact with people and be doing something. He was so good while we groomed out his dead coat with the rake, just sat quietly and let us get on with it. He will need experienced owners as this type of dog is super bright and very energetic. He would like a job. He can be excitable around other animals out on his walks initially. We are working on this and we're making progress using a head collar. UPDATE: Dalton has been regularly walked with various different dogs and is now much, much calmer around them. He is also much better out on his walks in general. He also has started to learn about clicker training and catches on very fast! This boy is incredibly intelligent. He doesn't like horses. If you think you have something to offer this lovely, young lad then please get in touch. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

MARVEL
LARGE LURCHER
APPROX 1-2 YEARS OLD MALE NEUTERED

Marvel is a great dog he is not a scrap of trouble in the kennels he is very polite and waits patiently for his walk. He would need a home with people who have had lurchers before and are aware of their prey drive and keenness to hunt. He is so lovely please consider this lovely dog. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs on our website before applying for any dog. UPDATE from Foster home..........We have totally fallen in love with Marvel. Yes, he has a high prey drive, and is strong on the lead when there are small and furry animals around (fragile folk or children would not be able to hold him), but my goodness, he is such a gentle, loving, and sweet natured dog for the rest - he so obviously loves humans. He is brilliant with my daughter! Marv has settled in to our home incredibly quickly - he is now totally relaxed, and isn't fazed by anything. After a good walk he likes to stretch out and snooze - though he's very happy for another walk later if you're up for it. One 'accident' on the first day, but hey, it's probably the first time he has ever been in a home, so who can blame him for that? He travels well in the car too - just sleeps! This gorgeous boy needs a home of his own, he is so content, and who ever adopts him will be very lucky indeed.
