Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, all dogs will have a rabies vaccination, a course of DHLPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvo, Parainfluenza) vaccinations and the Kennel Cough vaccination (except in the case of older dogs where we do not give the KC vaccination).
Many of our dogs have gone to live happily with new owners in properties without a garden (flats/apartments etc.) We recognise that everyone’s circumstances are different so we treat all of our potential adopters and dogs as individuals. We would try and match you up with a dog that we think would be best for you, your home and, of course for the dog.
We ask all our potential adopters about any outside space their property may have and, as part of the home check process, the home checker will look at your environment and whether it is suitable for the dog you want to adopt and may make recommendations.
Adult dogs will generally be neutered before travelling unless very old or considered medically unfit for surgery. Puppies under 6 months will not be neutered and for large breed puppies under 10 months will not be neutered. Adopters will be expected to cover the costs of neutering their puppy and confirm to the rescue that it has been done.
Like humans, every dog is different. Many love children, but some are not suitable for living with children, or may not be suitable for living with very young children. Should you have your heart set on a particular dog from our website that is sadly not right for your family circumstances, we will discuss this with you and do our best to find the right dog for all of you.
