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

Oskar

Gender/Age: Male
Breed: Saluki
Colour: Fawn
Location: Edenbridge

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 .

Molly is looking for a new home due to know fault of her own. Please see the owners report on this very sad case, and the reasons why they want to find her a new home. Molly 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 is currently living in London, NW9. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk


Ages Dog of the week
Maya

Maya

Maya

Gender/Age: Female 14mths
Breed: Japanese cross American Akita
Colour: Black & fawn
Location: Edenbridge

After being contact with one of your colleagues, it deeply saddens us to put up our beautiful pup for re-homing. Unforeseen circumstances have unfortunately come to light and we won't be able to provide her with the attention and time that she needs although we so very much wish we could.

It is with the deepest regret we find ourselves in the circumstances that result in piecing together this letter. We are sadly having to rehome Maya due to work commitments and family issues at home where I am having to move out the family house.

We’ve had Maya since end of July 2017, in which we have thoroughly enjoyed our time and tried our upmost to give her the best conditions possible.

We originally saw Maya (previously called Stella) in an advertisement from a young family located in Letchworth Garden City, who bought her from a local breeder. They informed us that they were in an unfortunate situation of being evicted from their premises by the Landlord who was wanting to sell the property, and couldn’t find any rented affordable accommodation that would allow dogs, so reluctantly put her up for rehoming on pets4homes.co.uk. The family themselves had two children, one being 10-12 years of age and the other being under 5 years of age, which Maya seemed very comfortable around. The house was small and did have a garden even smaller in which it was paved entirely of concrete slab. They also transferred over possession of her crate, which although had been used by her previous owners, we ultimately did not, and soon after disposed of.

When we first met Maya to greet and collect her (in a nearby park), she was quite shy/fickle to meet us and hid behind her owners. She didn’t act aggressive and was simply more interested in her surroundings. Eventually I took her on the lead and she was absolutely fine with it although looking over at her owners who were walking a short distance behind. Eventually, we walked back to her home, where she did display some territorial behaviour in the form of moderate howling. Again, no clear signs of aggression were displayed.

When we eventually put her in the car and made our way home, she was very quiet in the back and curled herself into a ball and didn’t distress with the journey nor driving, I imagine just nervous and confused by the situation of being removed from her ‘family’. Upon arriving at ours, again she was unsure of herself and where she was, becoming idle in the garden and remaining there for a short while or so before partaking in playing with her toys that were handed to us.

We initially kept her downstairs, closing her off into the kitchen/dining room area/utility room as it was all tiled and waterproof (as we weren’t sure how toilet trained she was). It was apparent that she was quite unconfident of herself in the new environment which resulted her in making mess over night when she was left alone. These continued for a short while after, however saw significant improvement when we allowed her upstairs to sleep nearer to us, be it the landing or in the door way to our rooms.

Maya will indicate the need for the toilet in a wining manner just as she does with food, however, sometimes she cannot be clear as you may think she just wants you to play with her so we tend to keep track on how many times she has been outside just in case. Her prey drive is quite high, and something we’ve actively tried to discourage the excitement generated when she’s spotted a smaller animal.

We both have now been relocated to London for work and it is simply unfair to keep Maya on her own all day in the house when she requires exercise and attention. Maya is a very affectionate dog who doesn’t like being left on her own for very long. We had her spaded in September just after her first season – was in season with previous owners, she is also up to date with vaccinations, she will also be mircochipped and given four weeks free insurance.

Below is a list of compiled traits we feel it is worth mentioning.
Good points

• Gentle in nature, food can be withdrawn with absolutely no aggressive reaction.
• Good with playing, gently bites when playing and will stop immediately when instructed to.
• Likes toys especially squeaky ones or a ball on a rope.
• She loves moist/wet food (not overly keen on dry biscuit and tends to ignore it, we went through quite a few brands!) We now give her a combination of the brand Hi-Life and pedigree meat jelly.
• Loves tuna (Has been known to jump up onto kitchen counters to quickly dispose of!) Pigs ears, Dental Sticks (we noticed decay which was slightly more progressed for her age when we first got her and have found the dental sticks helped clear this up), cold fresh water.
• Calm and patient around children.
• Tolerates car journeys well.
• Understands basic commands.
• Nonchalant when she’s been showered/cleaned and doesn’t try to avoid or escape.
• Behaviour on the lead is good, experience with using a Halti harness/lead.
• Very much a tail wiggler when greeting you!

Not so great points

• Extremely excitable around other dogs, albeit we have never seen aggressive behaviour from her towards them. We tend to not take her off the lead with other dogs around. When we believe there are no other dogs around, and therefore have left her off the lead, she will usually keep a relatively close distance, but there have been instances where she has spotted a dog a considerable distance away and charged over to them, but no aggression!
• Doesn’t like loud metallic noises such as an ironing board being constructed, motor noises such as the hover, and will remove herself swiftly from the area.
• Her Halti – we were advised by a dog trainer to use one of these s Maya is very strong with pulling. We have found the Halti very useful and much easier to control her and would advise to continue using – although Maya is still not 100% comfortable using and will try and drag it off.
• Maya is a terrific jumper and has now worked out how to jump medium level fences so needs to have a garden with high level fencing.
• Can become very agitated, animated and vocal at night if there are foxes and cats engaging in territorial disputes. Again down to excitement and her own territorial instincts.
• Likes to push her paw at you which can inadvertently catch you straight in the face! Obviously accidentally when it happens

All in all Maya is a terrific dog, we couldn’t have asked for a more lovable loyal Akita. We really hope a suitable family is found who are able to give her more time than what we currently are able to give. We wouldn’t be making this decision if it wasn’t the case and are really dreading parting with her. We are currently able to keep her with us on a ‘Home from Home’ basis for the mean while.

Maya is looking for a new home due to know fault of her own. Please see the owners report, and the reasons why they want to find him a new home. Maya 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. Maya is currently living in Sanderstead. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk


Poppy & Roman

Poppy & Roman

Gender/Age: Female & Male 6yrs
Breed: Doberman cross mastiff - French bulldog cross Chihuahua
Colour: Rust and dark brown brindle / Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

Poppy and little Roman are currently living in Maidstone. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk

Here are two very special dogs with a very special relationship.
Poppy and Roman have been with us since they were puppies,we originally brought poppy first and then Roman shortly afterwards to keep her company when we were at work....I know what your thinking....two puppies at the same time,you must be mad! Yes it was hard work to say the least but with consistent training and remembering they are puppies and will make mistakes they have bloomed into well rounded,house trained beauties.

At that time we only had one child so walks were all our favourite pastimes with the dogs,we would take them to the biggest parks with woodland as they enjoy chasing each other and poppy loves galloping through the woods,I say gallop because she really does gallop!

Over the years our family has expanded and slowly but surely with each child that has come and depends on us our poor poppy and roman have felt the brunt of it by not getting as much attention as they need and there walking needs are not being met.

Poppy is the biggest of the two she really is the gentle giant,her father was a beautiful majestic Doberman and her mother was said to be a mastiff X Staffordshire bull terrier. She is wary of strangers at first and likes to suss people out,if she is unfamiliar of someone and they immediately go to stroke her she will dodge their hand almost quite snootily she takes a little time to warm up to people,this may well be a trust thing.

Once poppy does know you she is the most gentle,loving,patient and loyal dog you’d ever meet,she has never shown any aggression towards anyone in the family and is very well socialised with children of all ages,she loves long walks and needs them too,she knows paw,sit and lie down she also despite her size thinks she’s a lap dog and if encouraged to sit on a lap or a sofa will lap up the attention!

She is also perfect at bath time and at the groomers.
She loves her food and has been known to eat a variety of different foods that have come her way especially when the children throw their food off there high chairs,she waits patiently in front of them most meal times so she also doubles up as a hoover we often say and laugh about it.

She loves chicken especially.
She is a unique colour and in the summer her brindle colouring almost looks like a tiger as she has a very orangey brindle that lighten even more during the summer months. She is beautiful.

Roman is the smaller of the two his mother was a French bulldog and father a Chihuahua,he definitely has the spirit of a Chihuahua,little,feisty and courageous!

Roman is a very unique looking dog and often gets stopped and asked about his breed. He is a dote to people and dogs he knows and is socialised with, but his horns rear when he comes across any other dogs,he is kept on a lead unless he is in a space we know no other dogs will be around as he shows aggression towards other dogs,he’s perfectly fine with new people and will approach them and bark for attention on initial meeting,other than that he only barks when the door knocks,when Poppy does or when he’s showing aggression towards other dogs.

He gets on with older children better,he likes older children and just about tolerates younger children as he doesn’t like the unpredictability of younger children and it leads him to growl.
He loves to sit of laps and be stoked on his tummy he also likes being under blankets and squashed spaces eg under peoples legs. He likes the warmth.

Roman is good in the bath but does not like the groomers trimming his nails or the hair dryer,we call him the grumpy old man sometimes.

He loves tidbits and you will always find him around your feet when you are doing anything that concerns cheese as he loves it and gets all the loose bits when you are grating it!
Roman also knows sit and paw and is house trained all though we do crate him at night times as he likes his own space sometimes as poppy likes to share with him most of the day which leads him scrunched up in a corner somewhere due to her size.

They absolutely adore each other,they are the best of friends and also had an accident litter of 11 puppies so they are pretty much an old married couple so would have to be rehomed together.

The kind of forever home they are looking for is perhaps a more matured couple with grown up children and the space for them inside the house and inside their hearts.
Ideally someone who will be home most of the time so maybe retired and has the time to walk them at least twice a day.

It would be nice for them to be spoilt again and be one of the main focuses in the household and not coming second fiddle to children or other pets.
The are really good characters and any owners would be proud,lucky and honoured to have them like we have been.

It really does hurt my heart that we have to see them go but we know it would be selfish of us to keep them and deprive them of what we know they need.

Poppy and little Roman is looking for a new home due to know fault of her own. Please see the owners report on the reasons why they want to find these little darlings a new home. Poppy and Roman 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.


Bailey

Bailey

Gender/Age: Female 8-10yrs
Breed: Staffie
Colour: Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

Owners report below
Bailey has had a hard life, she is an older girl, and it looks as if she had been bred quite a lot. She was found abandoned in Chingford, in a shocking state. She had little fur on half her body, dental damage, and was severely underweight and filthy dirty.
Happily, under our care, she has bounced back and is now a beautiful, chunky little girl. I often get stopped by fellow dog owners asking what I feed her as her coat is so shiny.
Bailey, has poor vision, and often walks into things, she can be nervous in a new environment, but once she gets her bearings she is the happiest, most loving dog. Bailey is very small for her breed, and loves nothing more than to curl up next to, or ideally on, someone she trusts. Bailey does not like a lot of exercise, a twenty minute walk and a few sniffs round the garden and she is happy. She really does love just to sit on her favourite blanket and sleep next to her companion.
Bailey would make an excellent companion for an older person. She loves being around people and is ridiculously affectionate. Bailey thrives on routine, she can be left for a few hours and is very well behaved in the car.
Due to Baileys poor vision she needs to be the only dog in the house, as she can get spooked by dogs suddenly jumping on her.
Bailey is such a soft, loving dog, she really needs someone to spend time watching TV with, snuggling on the sofa and getting cuddles.

Further Information.

Bailey is not recieiving any medication and is in tip top condition. She fed senior dog food twice a day, she has no issues over her food. She will actually eat anything, but currently senior with high protein.
She is good on the lead and does not pull, she is most happy when in the garden, she will go out for walks but really doesn't like being out for long, general rule about 10 mins, 20 if you are lucky. She is good with other dogs, she is not bothered by them whilst out, only if they jump on her as she can not see them coming and also have not enough time to spell them approuching.
Bailey was found as a stray and handed into a vets, a friend of the owner worked there and knew that they were looking or a companian for there other dog, hoping they would be interested otherwise she was going to be put to sleep. Luckily they took her, she had all the treatment and came home to live with them. The owners have had her for two years now, Bailey enjoyed her life with them until recently and is now not getting on with the other dog. We feel it is due to her being older and the other dog being younger, lively and boisterous. This is too much for Bailey, she can't see him coming, she can't read his body language and becomes startled and stressed by his presence. It is such a shame as they were really good friends and spent many hours cuddled up together.
Due to the stress to both dogs they are currently kept seperate within the home.
Bailey has never shown any agression of any type to people or other dogs she even has cats living at the home, but not directly in the house.
We are looking for a nice quiet home, without any other pets, a more homely person not to active person/s who are at home most of the day to cuddle up and snooze with there new good friend.

The owners are happy to travel anywhere for a meet and greet, the welfare of this beautiful little dog is there main concern.

Bailey is looking for a new home due to know fault of her own. Please see the owners report on her and the reasons why they want to find her a new home. Bailey 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.

Bailey is currently living in Essex All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk vaccinated, flea/worm treated, microchipped


Skip

Skip

Gender/Age: Male 7yrs
Breed: Jack Russell
Colour: White & tan
Location: Edenbridge

Skip needs an experienced adult home with no other animals. He is a housetrained boy but would play with his water and chase birds and squirrels in the garden. He is a lazy devil who loves to sleep in his bed, he would sleep through the night as well as fancy a good nap during the day! He is very dominant and would be resistant to any pressure or retraining. However, when you know his behaviour he is not a problem at all. He is very much loved by staff at Last Chance but we would all love to see him settled in a home of his own.

Gender/Age: Female, Male & Female 5/½yrs & 4yrs
Breed: Short haired

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.

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.
