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

DALTON
SHEPHERD TYPE
APPROX 1YR OLD MALE NEUTERED

Dalton has come on so well in the weeks that we have had him. You'd never now know what a sheltered life he led previously. He loves his walks and walks with any person or dog from little puppies to huge lurchers with no issue. He is still a little strong on the lead but only because he is keen to get going. Any of our volunteers can walk him now though. He is very responsive and will sit when asked and respond to his name. When cars come down the lane he moves to the side and waits for his treat. Dalton is inquisitive but not reactive out on his walks. Cars, bikes, other dogs, joggers etc are not an issue, they just mean treats are coming to Dalton! Horses are still a work in progress but we rarely see them so it's difficult to condition him to them. Dalton definately is quite malinois like, however he is not the sort to make a police dog or compete in ipo etc . He has quite low drive and a sensitive personality. He does not have a strong character. Rather than play games in the paddock he'd just rather roll around at your feet hoping for a belly rub! If you get too animated he becomes a little worried. He is athletic though and does require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation and training. He is very, very intelligent. Some of the things he works out or does are seriously impressive. He likes to be with you and given the chance he'd like to hang out with his people much of the time. Mals are famous for having powerful jaws and can destroy even the most robust strong toys. Dalton has never destroyed a non stuffed toy here. He's had the same red Kong's since he came and they're all still intact. As are the rubber sticks and rope toys. Much of his food is given in the red Kong's and similar interactive toys. He's never chewed up his vet bed (although he does drag it into his run to sunbathe!) Another Mali trait is mouthing. Dalton only does this open mouthed. I'm not even sure rubbing his head against you gently with his mouth open can be called mouthing but that is his version lol. Dalton responds well to kind, positive training methods. He understands clicker training, although sadly we don't have enough time to do this enough with him. We take him into the kennel kitchen regularly to get him used to it. He has a crate in there and is very good in it. He just lays down quietly as he knows when he does this treats fall through the bars! We have left him alone in the crate in the kitchen and he was fine. He has not attempted to chew the bars or open the door. He just waits patiently. Malinois types are special dogs and they require more time than many other dogs. Although to a malinois person Dalton would seem pretty tame compared to the high drive ones that have serious jobs. He would still like a job but something like canicross, agility, scent work (he loves using his nose!). He is very food motivated but currently not toy motivated. I hope Dalton can find his perfect person/people soon. He is such a fantastic dog. With an experienced oeraon who can provide all the mental and physical activity that he needs he will be awesome! 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

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.

CASH
ROTTIE CROSS GERMAN SHEPHERD
APPROX 1 YEAR OLD MALE NEUTERED

Cash is such an affectionate, loving and sensitive boy. He really looks like he should be a protector but he really won't fill those boots. Think Scooby Doo and you won't be far off! He is quite a baby really and silly things make him jump. He isn't nervous though. He just hasn't seen much of the world. He loves everybody and loves to play with other dogs too. Not all dogs appreciate his playfulness but when he finds a dog that does they have great fun playing. He acts more like an adolescent lab than anything. Silly, loving, goofy and loves to carry stuff around in his mouth. Another dog who we have yet to hear bark. 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.

Patsy is a very good girl at the kennels. She is clean, quiet and gets on with her kennel mate. She enjoys going for walks and is good on the lead. Anyone can walk her. She isn't a timid dog but she isn't full on either. If Jack Russells are your thing then I think you'll really like Patsy. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

LILY(NO MORE APPLICATIONS BEING TAKEN)
WHIPPET LURCHER
APPROX 6 YEARS OLD FEMALE SPAYED

Lily is continuing to be a superstar in her foster home. We're told she is pretty much the perfect dog. She has been perfect with all the people and dogs she has met. Even enjoying a walk in the the park with a huge pack of dogs with the morning walkers. Lily had to do the school run one day and couldn't have been any less chilled about the whole thing. She really does seem to be a 'go anywhere ' sort of dog. And if you can't take her somewhere then shes happy to stay at home. We really don't get many like her. Sadly still nobody wants her 😔 We hope her lack of leg and tail isn't putting people off as it really doesn't worry Lily. Being a small lurcher she doesnt take up much room as she is only the size of a male whippet. Please see website for further information 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.
