Calypso – 4 month old female Cross-Breed

Calypso is a four-month-old medium sized cross-breed dog with a medium coat. This beautiful girl is currently in the care of RSDR and is waiting for someone to offer her a loving home.

On the 7th June 2014, we had a phone call asking us to help a puppy that had been injured in another town. The boys went to collect her. She had been taken in to a school and some of the children had collected a donation for her. Her injury was already healing and apart from a limp and parasites she seemed fine.

Despite being found injured on the streets and having a bad start in life, Calypso is a very happy girl. She loves being made a fuss of and gets on great with all the other pups and dogs. She is young enough to learn how to get along with cats and would make a wonderful addition to any family. Calypso has been vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated and comes with her own pet passport.

Juniper – 4 month old female Cross-Breed

Juniper is a four-month-old medium sized cross-breed dog with a medium coat. This beautiful girl is currently in the care of RSDR and is waiting for someone to offer her a loving home. On the 19th May 2014, a box of puppies was left outside the shelter during the night. A hole had been chewed through the box and there was no sign of any pups.

The pups must have been hiding somewhere in the area and heard the other dogs at the shelter as the next day they found their way back to the shelter and were hiding in the yard on the morning of the 20th. The three puppies were all girls. They were very scared to start with but it didn’t take them long to realise that we wouldn’t hurt them.

Juniper is a lovely sweet girl and is enjoying her walks. She loves a fuss and plays well with the other dogs and pups. She is young enough to learn how to get along with cats and would make a wonderful addition to any family. Juniper has been vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated and comes with her own pet passport.

Khaleesi – 2 year old female Cross-Breed

Khaleesi is a two year old medium to large sized cross-breed dog with a medium coat. This beautiful girl is currently in the care of RSDR and is waiting for someone to offer her a loving home. On the morning of the 12th May, we noticed that someone had posted on the RSDR fan page asking if we could help a dog in another town. The dog was described to be in a terrible state.

There was a link to a news article showing pictures of her; she was extremely thin and appeared to have almost no hair at all. People were worried that she was diseased, so they were asking if someone could catch her and put her to sleep. We set off on the 70km journey to try to find her. When we eventually found her she was cowering in fear. Despite being terrified she allowed us to approach – perhaps her desperation for contact took over. She has to be one of the saddest cases we have seen.

Khaleesi appeared to have deformed front legs and was very weak. She had no hair; she was covered in fleas and ticks and one of her ears was torn. We took her to the vets on several occasions and, such was her state, full blood works were taken regularly. She was very anaemic; moreover she had canine ehrlichiosis and sarcoptic mange. Her legs were supported and, as a result, are now completely straight. She received medication for her other ailments and is now healthy again.

Despite her traumatic experience, Khaleesi is a very loving girl. She is a real character and loves to play. She went through a stage of mouthing where she would gently take a hand or leg in her mouth but, like most pups, she is growing out of it. However, she still likes to try to take my slippers when I am sitting down! Khaleesi will bark at strangers but, once she has investigated them, she very quickly makes friends and just wants attention. She has been great with all the dogs and pups she has met with the exception of one- one of our own dogs once had a go at her over a toy. Khaleesi didn’t start the argument, but nor did she forgive the instigator, so we now have to keep them apart. This has proved to be an isolated incident.

Khaleesi loves to lie in the garden, bathing in the sunshine, and is very attached to Ragnar, one of our other rescue dogs. We hope that they can be adopted together. She can be a bit stubborn at times (if she doesn’t want to go somewhere) so she needs firm but gentle handling. She is clean, loving and housetrained and she is used to being in a crate when travelling. She has never been destructive, so we do not want her going to a home where she will be shut in a crate at any time (apart from during travel). Khaleesi would be better suited to a family without small children; she has never demonstrated any nastiness but, as she is quite a big girl and does like to play, there is a concern that she could knock a small child over. Khaleesi would be a perfect pet for someone as she is kind, affectionate and fun-loving.

Gracie – 3 year old female West Highland White Terrier

Meet sweet little Gracie, the 3-year old West Highland White Terrier, who is being fostered in RCT, South Wales. She is a nervous little girl – an ex-breeder who is still learning about life with a family and as such will need time to learn how to become a normal dog. She is making progress though. She will now come to you when she feels confident and jump up to be stroked, although she may still back off when someone approaches her. Any startling encounter has her currently looking for the safety of her bed so her new family will need to be lovingly patient with her. This life is all so new to her. She is a very gentle girl. House training is coming along but will need further work. She is still learning about going for walks and hasn’t mastered the lead yet. Once she gets to know you and feels confident, she will come over to be stroked, which she enjoys but she is still wary of new people. She is very good at the vets but tends to be very car sick on the way.

Gracie is the mother to the puppies with mange that came into rescue quite recently. She is being treated with Malaseb shampoo twice weekly as prescribed by vets and now only has broken skin in a few places. She is still rather bewildered by this new world with all its sights, sounds, people, dogs, cats and loud noises! A phone ringing or door slamming will send her scuttling for the safety of her bed or crate – but this will improve as she gets used to living in a loving home. She is fine to be left for a few hours with no problems at all. She has met dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages and ignores the cats. She hasn’t got the hang of playing yet so will beat a hasty retreat if asked to join in. Given time and patience she will learn how to have fun.

Gracie is looking for a calm, quiet home with a resident calm dog to teach her how to be a family pet. Ideally someone with experience of ex-breeding dogs would be perfect for her. She would be best suited to a home where there was someone at home for most of the day. With love and patience this nervous little girl could become such a loving companion. She deserves to know all the fun and love that being a family pet can bring.

Gracie is up to date with her flea and worming treatment, micro-chipped and fully vaccinated. Prospective adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in South Wales.

If you are interested in adopting these boys please read about our rehoming process and complete a Pre-Adoption form ( link here ) and one of our adoption coordinators will contact you for a chat.
