Bovril is a young small/medium crossbreed, around 12 months old and a really handsome dog – we can see Staffordshire Bull Terrier and German Shepherd in him. He is quick to learn and keen to please and adores cuddles and being with people. Bovril would love an active family or someone with time to spend on him, perhaps with older children or teenagers who could take him for long walks, jogging, or try agility (which we think he would be fab at!
He walks nicely in a head collar and has been well behaved on his trips out, passing people and dogs on the lead without problem. Out in fields he shows he would be keen to chase birds, so will need some training. He has met children and really enjoyed this. He travels in a car well and is keen to jump in! Bovril needs a home urgently as he is getting distressed in kennels as he needs stimulation and the company of people. Because he is an unclaimed stray and we do not know his history he cannot go to a home where there are young children or where they visit regularly. Sensible older children or teenagers should not be a problem. He needs a home without other dogs.
Bovril is wormed, flea treated, microchipped, vaccinated and will be neutered before going to his new home. A donation of £120 is asked for to help cover the cost of this. We live in hope of saving the dogs in the Pound, but when we don’t have a spare kennel then these dogs’ lives are at risk. As I write this, kennels are full. Could you be Bovril’s lifeline? He is in South Gloucestershire but can be rehomed anywhere in the country, provided you can travel to meet him.
Potential adopters will have thorough home checks before and after homing and will need to give references to ensure that Bovril goes to caring and responsible owners. Please contact the dog wardens (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can offer Bovril a home!
