Buster – 3 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Buster is a 3 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Buster is a very loving and content dog with great enthusiasm for walks and playing outside but settles quickly and will lay quietly around the house, quite content with his own company. Buster loves EVERYONE. His tendency to play does get the better of him so would needs to be homed either alone or with a dog who already has good training and boundaries. Buster although a joy, rarely follows basic commands and pulls on the lead but has already made an improvement and would learn quickly with someone consistent and firm with the rules. Recall will need some work. Overall Buster is a beautiful dog who would fit into a family and be a perfect pet just the way he is but has the potential to be outstanding with a little training. Fully house trained. Sleeps in a crate overnight. Does not chew or dig! Plays ball and eats well. Buster is good with children but doesn’t like cats. He is lucky enough to be staying in a temporary foster home in Banbury, will need a new foster home or a forever home asap. Adoption subject to homecheck and adoption fee.

 

The Algernon Trust Animal Sanctuary Northamptonshire

The Algernon Trust Animal Sanctuary Northamptonshire

Owing to the difficulties the Founder Jane Shepherd has experienced since the death of her husband Melvin in September 2013, it has been decided to close down the Algernon Trust on 30 September. Sadly there is no one to take over from Jane and the trustees have voted for the closure of the Trust. Jane is enormously grateful to Animals in Need in Little Irchester who have offered to take over all the rehomeable cats and dogs as well as taking responsibility for previously adopted animals should any need to return into care. All the dogs in boarding kennels have been moved to Pine Tree Farm and the remaining cats and dogs will be transferred over the next few weeks as space becomes available. Jane will help out by looking after any returned cats and dogs until Animals in Need have room for them. She will continue to care for the elderly cats currently at the Sanctuary plus the foxes and two of the Trust dogs. Cats and dogs in long term foster care will remain Jane's responsibility. Any Trust income remaining at 30 September will be transferred to Animals in Need to cover the costs incurred by the Trust animals taken over. Jane hopes Trust supporters will also support Animals in Need, a Rescue with the same ethics and policies as the Algernon Trust. Jane wishes to thank all the Trust's volunteers, supporters and trustees who have helped her rescue and care for animals since the Trust was set up in August 2001. Jane and Melvin had saved domestic and wild animals since 1989 and 30 September will be a very sad day indeed.
