Perri

Perri

Perri

Gender/Age: Female 1yr
Breed: Pariah Dog
Colour: Fawn
Location: Edenbridge

Perri is looking for a new home due to know fault of her own.
Perri is being rehomed from home, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet.

Perri is currently living in Epsom Downs, Surrey. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk

Perri is a very clever dog and learns quickly. Although she has plenty of energy and has puppy behaviour, she also likes a good snooze or two during the day (she is crate trained) and would rather have a lie in than get up early! She is still learning her recall as she would really rather play than go home but always comes back eventually. She hates rain and wet grass and loves coconut oil – the ultimate bribe! You can always tell she’s happy as she pokes her tongue out, usually when having a nice scratch or tummy rub. She is spayed, vaccinated and house trained. She would love to play with our cat but he isn’t so sure as she’s a bit too enthusiastic and although she has chased him, she stopped when he did. She needs someone calm and patient who can gain her trust. She lived the first few months of her life on the streets and even when she moved on her experiences of people were not kind at first. As a result when she is in a house she gets scared easily and becomes defensive. She is wary of strangers, especially men, until she learns to trust them. When out and about she is happy to greet people, is getting better at meeting strange men and is fine with children and happy to play. Perri came to us 3 months ago after a long traumatic flight from India and has changed greatly in that time. She had a skin infection and was very underweight, although she didn’t want to eat either and had never had dog food. She now has all her fur back and loves her food! At first if she was asleep and didn’t want to be disturbed or she was unsure about being asked to do something she would growl or snap – then she learnt that she got treats for behaving. Now she still growls if she is unsure but can always be bribed to do what you want with a treat and it doesn’t happen very often. A new owner would need to take it slowly with her to build the same relationship. She has only bitten once when she was startled awake by someone drawing the curtains next to her and the skin was not broken. Perri loves all the dogs in the park and wants to play but can be defensive at home – unfortunately she doesn’t get on with our old dog and bullies her (she doesn’t like old dogs when she’s on the lead around them either but seems to be fine off the lead), so we have to keep them apart, which is why we are looking for a new home for her. She bullied our 2 year old dog when she first arrived and was unsettled but they soon became friends and played well together. Unfortunately he was injured (not by her) and can’t play roughly for the moment so we have to keep them apart as well! She has the potential to be a beautiful, loving and loyal pet for someone experienced who is willing to put in some work and give her the time to do so. She would do best as an only dog if someone had time to play with her, or with one young male dog who was quite dominant and liked to play too. She would need an adult household to cope with her initial behaviour but is happy to be left in a crate for a few hours if everyone is out.

Chilli

Chilli

Chilli

Gender/Age: Male 4yrs
Breed: American Bull Dog X staffordshire Bull Terrier
Colour: White
Location: Edenbridge

Chilli is looking for a new home due to know fault of his own.

Chilli is being rehomed from home, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet.
Chilli is currently living in Letchworth, Herdfordshire. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk

Chili is a American bull dog X Staffordshire bull terrier. He has recently been castrated and the vet and staff said that he was a good boy during his stay, describing him as a 'cuddly teddy bear'.

He loves to go on walks, and can be left in the house alone as he doesn't chew furniture or bark. He loves suckling his blanket for comfort and to get him off to sleep. He does currently live with a cat, and gets on fine with him. Chilli loves attention from people, and will paw you for cuddles. He is protective of his home and family. He travels well in cars. His diet consists of dry dog food, branded wainwrights - wheat free, but other than this, there is no other health issues.

The reason for rehoming, is that he is not getting along with our other dog, who we now know is more the one that is bullying him. He is a more lively dog so would be better going to a family with teenagers, would possibly be ok with another dog that has been neutered or castrated.


Buffy

Buffy

Buffy

Gender/Age: Female 2-3yrs
Breed: Staffie X
Colour: Tan
Location: Edenbridge

Buffy my little staffy x was adopted from Last Chance Edenbridge in June and regrettably I am finding it difficult to walk her as she is too strong for me, she is a wonderful dog in the home, very clean and a lovely temperament. I have gone through a training program with her and this helped a little, the situation is volatile as sometimes she is not too bad but if we see a dog on the road she pulls too hard for me and I find it difficult to control her. She does tend growl at dogs if too close, this may be because of my anxiety as when I adopted her the ‘spec’ said she was good with dogs. Last Chance are hoping she could be fostered as opposed to going back in to kennels which I really don’t want for her, they also said perhaps hopefully they could arrange a home from home for her which would be wonderful. It is with a heavy heart that I have had to make this decision; she is such a sweet girl and deserves someone who can give her the exercise she needs.
She can be left for up to 4 hours, in accordance with what Last Chance recommended with no problem, I have to say she does come on the bed and sofa which I have allowed, as this was a comfort to me as I have recently been bereaved. Apart from her strength when out, I can’t fault her for anything.

Further to our recent conversation about Buffy, you asked if I could add anymore about her.
Well she’s a very affectionate dog, likes to play chase with a tennis ball – of course then proceeds to tear the covering off it! She listens to some basic commands (indoors) like sit and stay and leave, and will sometimes sit at a curb before crossing a road if coaxed with a treat. She is a very endearing little soul, and when I need to go out sits at the window watching me leave and comes back to window when I arrive back home. She doesn’t bark but and will alert me with a growl if she hears anyone outside at night. I will miss that protection from her as I live alone.
She would be a valuable asset for someone who can master her physical strength on walks, and I believe in the right hands will be a forever dog.
P.S. She’s just made fuss of the man who came and fitted a new shower for me – and him with her. He said he’d love to have her but he works in the day and also has a cat.
P.P.S. She likes to share a banana with in the morning!

Buffy is up to date with her vaccinations, ID chipped, flea and worm treated and neutered.

Buffy is looking for a new home due to know fault of her own.

Bonnie & Tom

Bonnie & Tom

Bonnie & Tom

Gender/Age: Female & Male
Breed: domestic short haired
Colour: Tortoiseshell / Ginger
Location: Edenbridge

Bonnie is a small beautiful tortoise shell female kitty. She is very quiet and likes an opportunity to hide. She is playful and will come to you for affection once you have earned her trust. She is wary of strangers but once bonded with her new owner her affectionate playful nature will shine through.

Tom is a charismatic ginger gent! He is boisterous and cheeky. He loves to play, enjoys being groomed and to just relax in a warm cozy place. He will approach you whenever he wants a cuddle which is very often! He is particularly fond of a tickle behind the ear and a tasty cat treat.

I was wrong about them being able to be separated. They groom each other often and are closer than I thought so please can we try and Home them together.

Update from the Fosterer
Update: there have been no problems with pooping in the house at all, I wonder whether this was just an excuse to get rid of them. Tom gets a bit of poo stuck to his bum every so often but I’m hoping this was because of poor diet/stress etc.

Tom is an extremely friendly and loving young boy. As soon as he hears human movement, he is there rubbing legs and opening his big gorgeous eyes wide to show love and ask for love.
He is also very playful. He desperately wants to play with our cats but unfortunately they are too grumpy to reciprocate. Luckily his sister is often on hand & they’ll chase each other around for ages. Tom even grabs dangly toys and pulls them back and fourth when we’re too lazy to dangle it for him.

Bonnie: A very nervous little girl who is suffering nerves from her previous owners son running at and grabbing at her. If I am laying down she will come for cuddles straight away and is so sweet & affectionate I forget how scared she normally is. She’s been with us two weeks but still, as soon as I move towards her, the fear sets in and she runs.
She is now able to walk around me or near me when I’m walking as long as I don’t try to approach her.
Like her brother she is very playful and seeks the attention of my other two cats but will happily play on her own when my two ignore her and if her brother isn’t close by.

Both of them would be happy with other cats but cannot be placed with young children.
Tom could possibly be homed with a dogs(he’s never met one) but I would assume that Bonnie can’t.

Bonnie and Tom are looking for a new home due to know fault of their own. Bonnie and Tom are being rehomed from home from the fosterer, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet. Bonnie and Tom are currently living in Allhallows (just above Rochester)..

Bubble & Squeak

Bubble & Squeak

Gender/Age: Females 9mts
Breed: Mixed breed rabbit
Colour: Tri colour
Location: Edenbridge

Bubble and Squeak, they are around 9 months old, sisters so would need to be rehoused together they have both been spayed and are up to date with their vaccinations. They are currently under Vets for Pets in Crawley. They are both microchipped. They are mixed breed rabbits. Bubble is the smaller of the two with two dark ears and Squeak is the bigger girl with one dark and one light coloured ear.

They are lovely rabbits with sweet personalities that need more attention and handling. Bubble seems to be a little more curious and outgoing than Squeak.
Due to being at the care home they were not handled very often other than by myself or the other lady that was looking after them. They are very friendly but can be a bit nervous when first being picked up however once you pick them up they love being stroked and having a cuddle and they seem settled. They need a loving forever home where they will be happy and content. They eat very well and so far we have had no issues with them at all re their health, eating etc.

The care home who is predominately for the elderly with Dementia bought them from pets at home back in February this year. They went down well at first with the residents and staff but gradually they all lost interest in them and the 4 people who had agreed to buy them and look after them decided to have nothing more to do with them for one reason or another!! Knowing that I am an animal lover they took it for granted that I would take them in. I would definitely have had them myself however I am just about to have my second child and have a lot of animals already at home so really cannot take them on. I didn’t want them to just go to anyone as the care home would’ve just got rid of them to the first person they could so I decided to make it my mission to sort them a home before I went on maternity leave. I managed to get my lovely mum and dad to take them in temporarily until they get their forever home.

Bubble and Squeak are looking for a new home due to know fault of her own. Please see the owners report on this very sad and desperate case, and the reasons why they want to find him a new home. Bubbble and Squeak are being rehomed from home, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet.

Bubble and Squeak are currently living in Ewell in Surrey All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk


Riley

Riley

Riley

Gender/Age: Male 11mths
Breed: Collie x Staff (may have Lurcher
Colour: Black/Brown with white chest, paws and collar
Location: Edenbridge

Here are good things about our Riley, first he is very handsome, and talk about clever, well!, h loves humans and other dogs, he is very cheeky but loveable and wants to be with you all the time, he travels well in the car, housetrained in his current home and we have no problems of the night time, he sleeps well all through the night.
I have tried to explain his good and his bad.
CLEVER - A positive and Negative, you need to be one step ahead as works things out but hence makes him able to train, just normal puppy behaver, likes to pinch things and run away

NEEDS/WANTS CONTSTENT ATTENTION - Wants your attention especially the more people around, this means you can't get on

LOW ATTENTION SPAN - Gets bored easily. This means with the training he masters it straight a way but then gets bored.

2 PERSONALITITES - When he is calm, you can stroke him, cuddle him, walk past him, step over him and no reation. If he is hyped up then its like he is pocessed and can be jumpy and mouthy. Its like a switch and as quick as the hyped behavour starts, he suddenly calms.

Bit wary if a dog that barks but that’s improving.

Very friendly but too friendly, very jumpy and as above wants attention. If he is with someone for a while then can start to mouth, if not getting attention

This we know is puppy behavour but he uses it as a tool to get attention.

If hyped or scared, he bites and clamps his jaws. His favourite toy and the only one that he doesn't bore of is humans, well us - he hasn't bit anyone else but then no one comes round now. I'm bruised most of the time and he does break my husbands skin but hes skin is thin. We don't have places to confine him in the house, we do shut him in the hall (using stair gates) but for example he will dig the carpet, knowing that we will have to let him out.

Again to get attention but also if scared.

He likes to go for walks, gets excited but then can get scared easy and wants to come home. Can't let him of the lead as he will bolt and there will be no stopping him. He pulls on walks, really needs to be off lead as I know would be happier but can't trust him not to run off.

Further information
Riley is 10 months & is a lovely dog in the making, life has taken a unfortunate turn for us since we got him and I believe he needs a home where the owners can give him attention 24/7. Someone who is retired but active and can spend days with him exercising him and training him. I put that he wasn't good with children but only because we haven't put him in a environment with children, due to his mouthing just in case.
Reasons for transferring the dog
My mum went into hospital a week after we got him, she is very ill and I am having to deal with her condition with hospital visits, this could go on for a while yet and Riley needs the attention that I can't give. This said I don't believe we are the correct home for his bred either, we are a busy household and have had dogs before but never one that has need quite as much attention.

Riley is looking for a new home due to know fault of his own. Please see the owners report on him and the reasons why they want to find him a new home. Riley is being rehomed from home, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet.

Riley is currently living in Crawley, West Sussex near to Gatwick Airport. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk

MY COMMENTS (A Ramsey)

I went around to see Riley today, he is a beautiful looking boy in excellent condition and very happy, he is quiet a big pup, well big for his age, so this must be a consideration. It is true he is jumpy and was a little, little bit mouthy to me, but really just what pups do. The owner confirms that he really isn't getting the exercise he needs, the husband is now unable to work him due to health, and she walks him as much as poss, but obviously not enough. Riley has lots of pent up energy, I feel he is under exercised and frustrated, hence causing his excitability and mouthing.

Riley would make a brilliant dog for agility when he is a bit older, also if you need a running companion he would excel. This dog is bright and quick to learn, he would benefit in having a dog friend, to help socialise him, companion, a trainer and a playmate to exert some of his energy.


Jax

Jax

Gender/Age: Male, 2 years
Breed: Wirehaired Pointer x Lurcher
Colour: Black & Tan
Location: New Romney

Jax was unfortunately found as a stray and was picked up by the pound, and so found his way into Last Chance. At first he was just reactive to other dogs, and with more regular socialising he would return to his usual playful self around dogs. Jax was adopted by a lovely family, who tried their best to re-socialise him but to no avail. Since being with us we have continued his socialising, some of our dogs he instantly wanted to play and others he took a dislike too. Jax doesn't understand what behaviours to portray to others, one end is telling them he wants to play and the other is aggression, so many dogs are left confused by his behaviour. With continual socialising he may gradually improve but we cannot guarantee this. Jax is a big playful boy with beautiful brown eyes, who loves running around with a toy in his mouth and playing 'catch me if you can'! He loves affection and belly tickles and is soppy in your arms when he's relaxed, he really will make a great companion for someone. Jax will need an experienced home with an owner who understands his need for stimulation and either be happy to work with his dog aggression issues or manage them effectively. He is a strong lad with a high prey drive and so is very strong on lead when he sees something he wants!

I wish I could meet and talk with you, To see your faces, to see your children, What is your story? Where were you born? What is your star? I'd like to see your bedroom, your favourite book. Do you have a favourite shirt? Where have you travelled? What are your secret fears, your gnawing fears? Your gestures, the glint in your eye, your smile. When a lake or the grass or a tree is waking, Does something pierce your heart? What happened, my friend? Is that why I woke up sad this morning?


Ollie

Ollie

Gender/Age: Female 8yrs
Breed: Mongrel - Malinois/Chow
Colour: Tan
Location: Edenbridge

Ollie is slightly shy at first, but very sweet. She loves to cuddle, prefers to share the pillow with you, and is very gentle about taking her favourite thing - treats! She’s great on a leash, bounds around like a gazelle, but can also be very clumsy. She sometimes walks into walls or doors and surprises herself. If you can’t find her in the house, it’s likely she’s sleeping in the tub on warm days. She L-O-V-E-S walks - she’ll also go for a run with you without a second thought. Ollie has a quirky ear - the vet guesses it was injured when she was a puppy and it now gives her a bit of character. It doesn’t hurt her, though, and she is a huge fan of ear rubs! She prances when excited and pops her paws up in a little prayer when you come home from work. She knows basic tricks, but is still getting the hang of peeing outside every time. We use pee pads to resolve the in between times. It’s best she goes to a home with a companion dog, because she loves company and may howl if left alone in the house for hours (although she hasn’t done that in over a year). She thinks cats and bunnies are practice for chasing, but loves other dogs if they’ve got proper manners and a little energy. She doesn’t chew on anything...at all. No toys, no shoes - nothing, but she does like cuddling with stuffed animals from time to time. She thinks tiny humans are adorable and has had positive interactions with all children. She’s pretty calm, so could be good around young kids in the house, too. She’ll lay on top on you on the sofa or next to your feet, she just wants all the love and attention!

She's great with other dogs - we've always had dog roommates - and does well with children. She's questionable with cats, as we've never lived with one, but she chases after strays when she gets the chance. She's a cuddler, doesn't chew on anything (even dog toys, oddly enough), and wants nothing more than to snuggle people and other dogs. She's great on leash and will even go for a run. She doesn't make much noise - the occasional bark when someone knocks at the door - and is very sweet upon meeting new people. She did show signs of abuse when I got her - nervous around loud noises or quick movements - but we've come a long way in socializing her. She also knows basic tricks/obedience. The vet assessed she was a Belgian Malinois/Chow mix and should be around 8 years old. She definitely needs someone with experience with rescues or housetraining dogs, as we're still working on getting her 100% house trained.
Reasons for transferring the dog
I have to go back stateside and she did not do well on the flight over. I'm hoping to place her with a good family to live her life out in the UK.

Ollie is up to date with her vaccinations, spayed, ID chipped, flea and wormed.

It sounds like she would make a wonderful pet to me.

Tito

Tito

Gender/Age: male 2yrs
Breed: lurcher
Colour: tan & white
Location: New Romney

Someone To Love

I want someone
To hold me tight
To keep me safe
And promise things will be alright

I want someone
To love me for who I am
To stand up and be strong

I want someone
To dry my tears
To protect me from
All my fears

I want someone
Who won't judge me
Who will see past the scars
And see someone happy

I want someone
Who can be my friend
Who will help me out
And see me until the end

I want someone
Not just from above
Don't you see
I just want someone to love

Tito was unfortunately found as a stray and was picked up by the pound, and so found his way into Last Chance. Tito has been with us far too long now and none of us can begin to comprehend why he is still waiting for his forever home! Tito is just lovely, he doesn't have a bad bone in his body, just wants love and affection at all times! Tito loves a butt scratch and will do a little dance with a huge grin on his face, and beg for more when you stop. He is very quick being a Lurcher and will chase all the rabbits he can find, he is also quite strong on lead as he seems to think he'll get everywhere faster if he pulls. Although Tito has some jealously issues around other dogs, he is really good with other dogs and loves to play like a looney! We are suggesting he be the only dog in the home as he does become jealous if the other dog is getting fussed as he just wants it all to himself. Tito has slight food aggression but will usually warn you if you're getting too close and this tends to only be when he is eating (as most dogs do), we haven't noticed any guarding issues. Tito has been through so much with us and seen the seasons change here, it's about time he found a loving home to call his own and he is so deserving and will be an amazing family pet! This is Tito in his all time favourite position when he's just exhausted from all the playing!


Pax

Pax

Gender/Age: Male 3yrs
Breed: French Bulldog
Colour: White
Location: Edenbridge

PAX is currently living in Dudley. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk

PAX is an amazing dog in the house he’s chilled and loves to sleep and a cuddle but also loves long walks with other dogs as we take him on pack walks with lots of other dogs big and small and he is absolutely fine. He’s fine with the people out on the walks, he will let them fuss him. He loves to run and will burn energy for hours with other dogs but when he’s on his own he stays close by and just sniffs about. He will sometimes walk ahead but if you hide you will see him stop and turn around and he will come looking for you. He will jump into water to cool himself off and make a mess of himself.

When sitting on the sofa pax will jump up and invade your personal space, he will get himself into a warm spot and fall asleep. He also loves the top of his head massaged and will tap you if you stop.

Pax loves the heat and on a sunny day we will either sit/lie outside soaking up the sun or any bit of light that enters the house he’s lay in it and he’s always by a radiator on a cold day (we always put his bed right by the radiator)

When he needs you and your not in the same room he will let you know with his funny little noise he makes. Guests find it hilarious!

Overall Pax is loving and gives loads of cuddles.

When he was around 1 years old he bite his dog walker but when we had a behaviourist we under stood the reasons behind this as he was nervous and she was putting him behind his cage and trying to take his lead off while she was stood over him which made him even more nervous and he gave her many warnings but unfortunately this was what happened.
We are currently expecting our first child and we cannot take the risk of him being around our a baby with his passed even though he may be fine we just don’t want to risk it and feel he would be better with adults only.

This being our first child we already have anxieties and we don’t think it would be fair on Pax as I feel he will pick up on this anxiety and it’s not fair to just keep him away from the baby.

PAX is looking for a new home due to know fault of his own. Please see the owners report on this very sad case, and the reasons why they want to find him a new home. PAX is being rehomed from home, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet.


Archie & Charlie

Archie & Charlie

Gender/Age: Males 8yrs
Breed: Staffies
Colour: White
Location: Edenbridge

Charlie and Archie are currently living in Surrey. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk
They are both male white and 8 years old. They have been with us since they were 4 weeks old. Archie is deaf and extremely reliant on Charlie, they are inseparable. When Charlie has been taken to a vet and Archie left behind Archie is completely unsettled and crud and runs round in circles panting !

They are not well socialised with other dogs! When they do get a walk they are not let off the lead and we tend to go to quieter fields !! They have been around children from new born to teenage from a young age and always been very loving and gentle around them and other adults. They love being around people !

They are very chilled and tend to have a mad 1/2 hour running playing round the garden at tea time !

You often see them enjoying the sunshine and Charlie loves playing in water sprinklers or hoses (Archie not so much) ! They have bought us happiness and laughs! When my little girl fell down the stairs Charlie must have heard the thud and we went rushing right to her side and layed next to her within seconds before I got there ! When pregnant with my first child they didnt leave my side and if your unwell Archie wants to stay by you !!

They have managed to escape a few times in the 8 years they even went for a sleep over in a neighbouring garden and they let them in the middle of the night !!

My father bought these dogs when we lived together and sadly passed away soon after. I am not a dog lover and have never had any intention on ever buying a dog as knew I didn’t have time money and wanted a family of my own ! For the last 8 years I have done my best to look after them as I couldn’t stand the thought of dads dogs being in kennels ! I have been keeping update with fleeing worming vaccines check ups etc until recently !!we have been Showing them affection and tried to make them part of the family.

With two small children1 and 5and working and I have osteoporosis arthiritis which can result in barely being able to moveI am really struggling, I am not one to ever leave dogs alone with the children and the dogs have free run off the house as they always did and not the kids it’s impossible for the kids to even play football in the garden etc and the dogs chase the ball. I don’t let them kids just wonder round the house as I like to have either the dogs or children in site ! I feel with the dogs I have tried to do my best by are coming before my kids, they have access to the garden all day but I am unable to walk them.

Due to boredom and frustration they are known to eat the odd soft thing like a dog bed if left for a period of time. Charlie is bone/toy possessive and this has once resulted in a fight between the two of them which has worried me with small children in the house!

They have access to our garden all day so they do run around but I know this is not enough for them , hence why they had a tiff, due to boredom and frustration.

I am desperatelylooking for them to be rehomed together and we would pay a contribution monthly to the organisation ! I think this solution is the best to both myself and the dogs as feel I can’t give them the time they need! I really have tried my best and it will break our hearts to loose them but this is the only way forward, I would love to home them before it gets to much and they end up separated in kennels.

Adrienne Ramsey also hold their veterinary records that are available to any potential new owner, all basic veterinary records, I.e vaccinations, flea treatment etc.

Darling Charlie and Archie are looking for a new home due to know fault of their own. Please see the owners report on this very sad case, and the reasons why she wants to find them a new home together. Charlie and Archie are being rehomed from home, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet.

Oskar is currently living in Cheltenham. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk
Oskar is so affectionate and knows how to charm and be funny. He has a favourite toy which is a squeaky frog he likes to throw around, catch and squeak .
If he wants attention he gently nudges with his nose to get his favourite head and ear scratch, which sends him quickly into his blissed out mode.
After a run around the garden Oskar loves nothing more than to jump into his paddling pool to lay in and cool down.

He eats from a maze bowl to slow down his eating. This makes him yummy food last longer as he loooves his food.

He walks very well on this on his harness and needs gentle reassurance if a dog is coming. He needs to choose his own distance from other new dogs otherwise he will then try to get away as far as he can. He only needs you to give him quiet and gentle reassurance and get him to focus on you rather than the other dog he's afraid of. If you are not prepared to give Oskar your full and undivided attention and support in these situations he will not cope and may not be the dog for you. He loves to run off lead away from farm animals and other dogs. As all Salukis he is very fast and you can almost see him smile with the pleasure of it. He has good recall and is always mindful of where you are and in a clearing will be watching all entrances and exits incase another dog should approach. This would spoof him and again gentle reassurance is the order of the day.

At eight years old he has been well socialised and had had multiple extra trainning sessions and has been seen by dog psychologised to help him with this fear problems. They say he doesn't read other dogs body language or facial expressions. He has lived in my home with up to 4 other dogs including puppies and older dogs and bitches With slow introductions he has coped well and lived harmoniously. He has been around children from three who are supervised as should all children be with dogs and loves all company from our visitors and family members.

Oska is neutered and up to date with his vaccinations, he lives with two other dogs and enjoys their company but is scared of new dogs so needs careful introductions

I hope his is useful in finding Oskar the loving home he so deserves. If I had my health and if I could take him to my new accommodation I would not part with him for all the world. He is my fantastic furry long standing sensitive friend and I would not part with him for the world.

I have to do what's right for him and find him a new loving owner who can give him what I no longer can due to a change in my health and circumstances.

Oskar is looking for a new home due to know fault of his own. Please see the owners report on this very sad case, and the reasons why she wants to find him a new home. Oskar is being rehomed from home, so please contact me direct Adrienne Ramsey 077825 44913 or age@blueyonder.co.uk for more information which I can forward on, or to arrange a meet and greet.


Molly

Molly

Molly

Gender/Age: Female 6yrs
Breed: German Shepherd
Colour: Black & Tan
Location: Edenbridge

Molly is a female German Shepherd, she is nearly 6 years old (DOB 28-09-2012) and came to the UK from Spain with my father, who has joined me in the country after becoming a widower.

The reason why he has to give Molly up for adoption is that he needs to move homes and landlords won't accept dogs on their property. At the moment they are provisionally in my home, however, my landlord does not accept pets either and has agreed only on the condition that this will be temporary and that there will be no disturbance to other neighbours. Unfortunately, some neighbours have started to complain that there is a dog in the block (there is a policy of no pets in our state).

Molly is spayed and has hypothyroidism, for which she needs to take 600 micrograms of Levothyroxine Sodium (Thyforon) per day. The dose is usually 300mcg in the morning and 300 in the evening.

The price of a box of 250 tablets of Thyforon 200mcg is £53 at our vets (Vets4Pets), which should last a little under 3 months. There is also the option of requesting a prescription from the vets for £12, and buy the medication online, which costs £24.40 for a box of 250 tablets at petdrugsonline.com (https://www.petdrugsonline.co.uk/prescriptions/t/thyforon-200-(0-2mg).

She also needs to have a blood test once a year, which costs £98.

Overall, I would say the costs of her condition would be from £320-£220 per year (£18-£26 per month). Our vet, Karen, from Vets4Pets at Hendon, is aware of Molly's situation and has kindly suggested that you contact her (Adrienne will pass on this information if and when required by the new potential adopter) if you wish to discuss Molly's health further with her.

Otherwise, Molly is a healthy dog who is very kind and playful with children. She is aggressive towards other dogs and therefore walks in the park should be done with care, avoiding going too close to other dogs. It would probably be best also if she is the only dog in the home. She is very protective of her family and home so it makes a good dog to deter burglars (this is the reason my parents always had a German Shepherd in their home), and visitors who are not known to Molly should be introduced carefully (e.g. with a cheerful greeting from the owner to make her understand that it is a friend) – this is especially necessary with male adults.

As Molly lives currently at my home and I have an 8-year-old daughter, Molly is more than used to children. My daughter's friends come to play very often and Molly is always kind and happy around them. There has never been any incident and Molly has never bitten anyone. I strongly believe Molly would be most happy if placed with a family with children, ideally in a home with a garden, where she could have lots of fun playing with the kids. Obviously, there needs to be adult supervision when playing, especially with younger children, as Molly might get over excited and jump.

Please give this consideration as regards the cost of long term medication as it is not something Last Chance is offering to fund .

Magic, Paddy & Maddy

Gender/Age: Female, Male & Female 5/½yrs & 4yrs
Breed: Short haired
Colour: Tortie & White, Tabby & White and Tortie
Location: Edenbridge

We wanna be free

We wanna run,
we want to hide,
we wanna tear down the walls that hold us inside,
we wanna reach out and touch the grass
we wanna show our personalities,
without being scared,
we wanna to be free
we wanna live,
we wanna be heard,
we wanna be free...
oh please why won't you help us three

Hello kind readers. My name is Magic and I am a very pretty tortie and white girl, 5yrs old. I know I am pretty because everyone says so!

When I was a kitten I was bought by a lady who was very unwell. She put me in her shed and there I stayed. I was never neutered and so I was constantly fighting off big tom cats and other animals in the garden. I became pregnant again and again, and I loved my little kittens so much, but they all died or were carried off by other animals. I did my best to protect them, but I am only a little cat and there was nothing I could do.

I was the saddest, loneliest cat. One day my owner was taken away and another lady came and took things out of the house. She came to the shed and found me, frightened and starving and she took me to Last Chance. I was given a lovely house, with its own heater! I had a cosy bed and lots of food, and when I gave birth to my last two babies, I had enough milk to feed them and I was able to protect them. Unfortunately I was so desperate not to lose them, I didn’t want anyone to come near us and I think people thought I was not very nice. I taught my little ones to be scared of people because I thought that would keep them safe. I had not been very well in my shed, and I and my babies had the most terrible flu. At the time when we would normally have been socialised we were getting lots of treatment to make us better and this was hard for my kittens as they started to associate humans with tablets and going to the vet.

I have the most beautiful son called Paddy. He is a huge, handsome tabby and white boy and we love each other so much. Because I find it hard to bond with people, if I lost him I would have nothing, so we are looking for a loving home together with very patient people. I love to sit in comfy chairs on soft blankets, I love catnip and toys and when the wind blows, I race around with my ears flat, and you would think I was 6 months old. Paddy is very sweet and loves to wind around the legs of the lady who looks after us. When she strokes him, he purrs and he is so gentle. It would take a while for a new person to develop this kind of relationship with him, but once they did, he would be a big softie and I know they would love him.

My daughter Maddy is a gorgeous, dark brindle tortie, a big gentle girl. If we cannot all go to a home together, she would love a home with a very sweet, kind cat who could become her friend and show her the ropes. She is the most shy of the three of us, but she is not aggressive. She is extremely playful, loves catnip, toys and dreamies and she is curious and funny. Her favourite place to sit is on a very soft, comfy cushion in a warm spot, and if the sun is shining she will lounge all day. We all love climbing up our tall scratching posts and we will be hunters. We can catch anything!

Last Chance has done the most amazing thing for me, they saved my life, they gave me shelter, food, warmth, love and treatment when I needed it. They have looked after my babies and given us endless toys and treats, a wonderful space to play and race about, but what we need now is a home of our own, where we can be with kind people and have games and toys. We would love a garden with trees and sunshine, and very importantly we would love lots of cosy places to curl up and sleep. Unfortunately I cannot tolerate other cats, but we could be homed with gentle children 8yrs and over if they are happy to play with us with things on strings, and don’t mind taking time to develop a relationship with us. Lots of people look at us, but they want us to be friendly straight away and sit on laps, and that’s not something we can offer. If you take us home, and give us time to settle in, you will find we are funny, playful, curious, and you would be doing something wonderful by giving us a safe, loving home where we can be happy and free.

Please spread the word about these little darlings, they have waited too long for a chance to live a real fulfilled life, to run free, to touch the grass to climb a tree to play hunt, to feel the wind, rain and snow, to brask in the suns rays, to sniff, to touch to hear the real world around them.

NO animal should have to live their first four years in a cattery, due to know fault of their own, please someone show some mercy, comparsion, LET THEM BE FREE.

I KNOW YOU ARE OUT THERE, GIVE THESE A CHANCE OF LOVE, A WARM SAFE PLACE TO CALL THEIR HOME.


Buster

Buster

Gender/Age: Male 5yrs
Breed: Boxer X
Colour: White & Tan
Location: Edenbridge

OUR SAD, LONELY, STRESSED BUSTER BOY

"Life is too precious to be left to chance

Take a chance on me and I will prove how worthy your life is

If you just give me a chance, I could be the dog you've never dreamed of and never wanted"

Oh, where are you, that special person that can give this darling boy a chance of a normal happy life. Buster has been with us too, too long, he needs his chance. Buster is suffering hard, he is losing weight continuously due to KENNEL STRESS and it's not fair, he is such a lovely boy, he loves to play and is so affectionate and loving when he knows you.

Buster is a big strong handsome boy who will need lots of exercise. He is strong on a lead and needs a fit active owner to share his love of fun and long walks, but he can misbehave by biting and tugging on the lead on occasions, we find he is much better if he is on a harness, a lot of this is down to sheer excitement for the love of being out of the kennels.

Buster was O.K with some other dogs, but due to being in the kennels and suffering kennel stress he has lost the ability at present to understand the body language, some of it is out pure frustration.

Our Buster is not used to other animals now, so we are suggesting a home with NO other animals, also as has been with us for quite some time which is breaking my heart, he is now wary of strangers, not surprising really, so introductions need to be done with strangers. Due to his over exuberance and size we would not like him to be home with children, he has actually lived with young children but the previous owner found it too much of a handful to cope with him and the youngsters. He is a loveable chap who adores cuddly toys.

Ops, I nearly forgot, Buster needs a really secure garden as he is a little monkey, like I said he loves his walks and being out and about, so if he doesn't get it he will look for away to take himself out and about. We would also feel as he doesn't currently like other animals, best he doesn't live next door to any.

I know what you are thinking, but see past this, this wonderful dog needs a chance and in the right home and environment he could and will become a totally different dog, he just needs a confident, loving, firm, active owner that can give HIM the time to become the NEW BUSTER BOY.

If you feel you can offer him a loving home please call 01732 865530 10am-3pm to speak to the Manager Yuri or Assistant Manager who know this dog very well and can give you lots of information about him.


Bess

Bess

Gender/Age: Female 7-8yrs
Breed: Collie X
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

Bess is a girl with a character, she needs a lot of space and 100% devotion and is better suited to experienced dog owners or even better one-to-one. At one stage she has lived with a cat, so she may accept a cat as a companion. She doesn"t like other dogs! When Bess was only 5 months old she ran into a lane where she lived and was hit by a 4x4. As a result she had 4 pins in her neck and so must be walked with a harness. She doesn't have any health issues as a result of the trauma but she doesn"t like it when you touch/fiddle around her neck or back of her head.

She is very good in doors and can be left for 3-4 hrs. Also loves her food and would eat her food slowly just enjoying it.


Danny Boy

Danny Boy

Gender/Age: Male 3-4yrs
Breed: Scottie x
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

Danny Boy is a lovely boy once he knows you, he has to have a female owner on a one to one basis, this is all due to him being mistreated. Unfortunately this poor sad little lad, through no fault of his own was kicked and abused in his previous home, living day after day in constant fear, hiding and cowling away from his owner.

This is a very sad case due Danny Boy"s previous male owner who was sadly suffering with-Alzheimers and didn"t realise what he was inflicting on his once best friend.

Please therefore understand why our darling sad, confused, untrustworthy, frightened little Danny boy can be unpredictable towards men, and is quite nervous when first meeting you and needs to settle in slowly. Is there someone out there that can reassure him, give back the love he once knew, to enable him to trust that once again, like the song above will there ever be any pipes a calling for our Danny Boy?????? Or does he have to continue to hope, dream, wish for someone to call his name.

Look into those eyes, see his pain, reach out to him, give him a chance, give him time to trust you, give him back his life, give him the confidence, patience and love that he needs, LOVE that we all need. I know the right person is out there, make our Danny Boy"s wish come true, a loving home this Christmas, that day and every other one there on, FIND HIM PLEASE.

My Fears
© Samantha Medlin

Getting left behind
Not being loved
No one understanding
No one caring
are my fears

I was lost
No one tried to
find me
No one cared
No one listened
understood

Wishing for another chance
Wishing for someone who
will come and save me
from myself.

Look at this beautiful boy's face, can you not see the hope that is in his eyes, he is crying out to be loved. Alfie has been with us too long now, I really want to find him a calm, quiet, home. Alfie is still learning and needs extra help from a patient owner to show him the ropes. Unfortunately our darling boy can get very stressed out about some things, so I am looking for that understanding owner to help our boy. The staff here understands what are his needs, and find it very easy to accomplished, so if you think you can offer this little chap a life line, please give us a call.

We all need to be understood, Alfie is no different with your help he just might get there. Please don't let him keep wishing and hoping that someone will come in today and take him away, how many more times does his hopes have to be dash, why can't someone give him a chance, please help take his and my pain away, and let him live new life away from the rescue.

Alfie is a very lively lad, who can be a little unpredictable. He is full of life and needs lots of exercise and would probably be best homed to someone who has experience of the breed. Alfie is good with other dogs but needs a calm home so we are suggesting no children.

If you feel you can offer him a loving home please call 01732 865530 10am-3pm to speak to the Manager Yuri or Assistant Manager Jenny who know this dog very well and can give you lots of information about him.
