Poor Teazel was absolutely petrified when he came into our care at the beginning of January, and is still a very sad little soul, but he has improved a great deal. I have recently been able to sit in his kennel with him with Jo, our lovely deputy manager, who has been working with him every day. He came to me for a fuss and a stroke and I was able to kiss the top of his head, which was lovely. It was wonderful that he felt relaxed enough to come to me, and it pays testament to Jo’s patience and love for him that has given him the confidence to seek affection. I didn’t want to leave him as it was just so lovely to be with him. I have a Whippet cross myself and I know what sensitive dogs they are, so it’s heartbreaking to see Teazel so worried, bless his heart. Once settled,Teazel will be a wonderful dog and to see him make the journey to happiness will be an amazing experience.
He desperately needs a quiet, calm, loving and patient home where he can start his new life and start to trust and love you too. He will also need a home where he will get plenty of exercise, and where he will have lots of good company throughout the day. You will also need an enclosed, secure garden to enjoy with him. Teazle could live with another dog and sensible, calm older children.
Teazel will be neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and can be rehomed outside of the county, within reason, and subject to a successful homecheck. We really, really want to get Teazel out of a kennel environment and into a home. The noise at the kennels can’t be helping him, plus it is always busy with visitors and Teazel needs peace and quiet and consistency.
Please get in touch asap if you think you can give Teazle the loving, forever home he needs, many thanks.
