Benny

Benny

Gender/Age: Male 2yrs
Breed: Jack Russell
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

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

Benny is a very quiet dog who adores someone throwing his tennis ball. He is an excellent companion and will quietly follow his owner around the house and garden interested in what they are up to. He is excellent off lead in parks or woods. He can be left at length with no problem.
Reasons for transferring the dog

Benny is a wonderful dog. Who through little fault of his own is being put up for re-homing.
We are expecting a baby and already have two dogs so cannot keep him.
He has only two minor but easily trainable issues. He gets stressed by a busy front door and would benefit greatly from a quiet household. In the time we have had him we have moved to a quiet country house and this issue has improved immensely. He also can get grumpy if you try to move him of an evening (if he feels he has settled on the sofa or a bed for example).

Last Chance gave me some advice regarding the sofa/bed issue and we have been attaching a lead to him of an evening to ensure he understands who is boss if we want him to move. He has responded excellently to this instruction. Proving he is easily trainable.
Sadly with a baby on the horizon we would just never feel comfortable with him and the baby in the room despite how brilliantly Benny may have been. Very sad to see him go but he will make an excellent pet in the right home.
My comments and further informaton on their Benny Boy
Benny is good with other dogs and is currently living with two, he not used to cats so best not homed with any.. We are suggesting an adult home, as he can get stressed by too much going on and too much noise, I don't blame him either.
Benny can quiet happily be left at home and he is not noisy or destructive, Benny is house trained in his current home and is clean, he would need to be taught this in his new home.
Benny is very intelligent and eager to learn, he is only a young dog and has lots and lots of potential in becoming a very obedient well trained dog if you help him, maybe attend training classes, great for socialisation and making friends, either ways he is quick to learn.
Benny is up to date with his vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and flea treated.

Benny 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. Benny 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.


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?


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!


Bella

Bella

Gender/Age: Female 2yrs
Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback
Colour: Beige
Location: Edenbridge

Bella is currently living inKingston upon Thames Surrey

All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk
She is a beige rodesian ridge back she is Fully vaccinated & micro chipped, she is not neutered.
Bella is the bestest companion any man woman or child could Wish for, she’s loyal, loving, affectionate Bella loves cuddles, kisses & belly rubs.
Bella loves attention, when you first walk through the door Bella will jump up at you lick you wag her tail and greet you with so much love, Bella does not like being left alone, she needs someone very active that will bring her every where they go & also needs to have a lot of time, which unfortunately I don’t have and can’t handle right now with a new born, if Bellas left alone for to long she will get disruptive and start howling and chewing small things such as remotes, but saying that she has stayed over a period of time with my gran and was very well behaved when she left her for maximum a hour here and there, so possibly I have given Bella a attachment issue with me.
Bella is very strong on the lead but does settle after a while if your consistent and firm, Bella can be taken off the lead but I would advice her being on a mussel as depending on how other dogs react to bellas boystress jumpy behaviour sometimes things can get abit growly, Bella understands a lot of commands, she is fully house trained she’s good with cats, rabbits & reptiles. Bella is amazing with children my daughter is 9months and there bond is the most beautifulest thing I have ever witnessed honestly, my daughter sleeps on Bella, they share toys they have hug time they are literally Bestfriend’s.
Bella is good with food you can put it down move it with no problems she will sit wait and give you paw for her food and stay until you say she can eat. Bella is nothing but amazing with humans never had a problem at all with men women or children. She just loves everyone and wants cuddles and someone to scratch her ears and love her.
Further information
Bella isn’t socialised with other dogs but is good with puppy’s she can be around some dogs but it depends on how the other dog reacts to Bellas playful and boystresness, she’s very bouncy and jumpy if the other dog can tolerate Bellas behaviour they will get along, if they snap at her she’s more than likely to have a growl
Reasons for transferring the dog
It’s too much hard work for me as I have a 9 month old and Bella does not like being left alone she will howl and be disruptive in the house so I literally can’t leave my house unless my mum comes over to visit as I have moved far from my family also walking Bella whilst pushing a buggy is very complicated as she is a very muscular dog, and pulls on the lead but saying that, I think Bella has an attachment issue with me and my daughter as I have left her at my grans and a friends when I first had my daughter and they was able to leave Bella at home with no disruption for a hour max here and there Bella is 2 on the 27th of December,
Bella is currently unneutered, this will be done before adoption, or will be booked in to our vets for neutering on the day of adoption.

Bella 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. Bella 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.


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.


Lufian

Lufian

Gender/Age: Male 11mths
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: White
Location: Edenbridge

Lufian is 11 months old, he is up to date with his vacinations, has been neutered and micro chipped.

I am contacting in regards to re-homing my cat, much to my sadness and disappointment. I am hoping you can help.

I am not the right owner for him as I am an unsettled single person, not home enough, always travelling and work very long hours. I have had to move house three times already in the year I have had him and have to move again next month. I am struggling to find any landlord to accept him and I am also likely to be moving abroad in April.
He seems unhappy in my care. He needs a home that can provide him lots of attention, and a lot of energetic playtime. He roams and has gone missing often so I think he would be better in the countryside with plenty of land to explore, rather than Lewisham where I currently reside.
He likes to be around other humans and cats all the time, he doesn't like being left alone so he needs a home with lots of people and/or other animals. He absolutely loves children and playing. He also loves snuggles and even wraps his paws around humans in affection, giving plenty of kitty "kisses" and a bit of grooming.

I should add that he is deaf and I found him starving and abandoned in Greece at 6 weeks old. I fell in love with him, have given him the best care possible and brought him all the way back, paying rent I can barely afford for a garden apartment for him. Despite this, like I said, he is unhappy and goes missing often. He also defecated on my bed last weekend while I was away, despite having two doting cat sitters to tend to him, which I took as the final confirmation that he is unhappy with me and needs to be re-homed as soon as possible. Also because I am moving house in a couple of weeks (I don't know where to yet) and abroad in a few more months, I feel it is best to re-home imminently.
He is very beautiful and friendly, getting himself "catnapped" occasionally, so I am sure he will be easy to re-home.

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

Please see the owners report on him and the reasons why they want to find him a new home.
REG 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.
REG is currently living in Eastbourne. All Last Chance Animal Rescue procedures will be adhered too, please check out our web site for further information www.lastchanceanimalrescue.co.uk

My name is Reg, or Reginald when I'm naughty. I'm from a loving family but due to their separation and my mums working so much im looking for some one to be my new family.. Im good with children, as my owners had two boys, from age of 7 , and i do like cats as i share my home with my mate tiggs, I am good with otherdogs as I have a few who come and vist me, one is a chuaiua which we have great fun together. But i do think I am human more than a dog. I am good with horses, sheep, cows, chickens, ducks/swans as I swim with them in the pond. I love going for long walks , and swimming I could do it all day.. My mum says I am a beaver as I love to swim, and tear up branches and carry them, bigger the better.. I am good off the lead, but can pull on the lead.. I love to play..I talk when I play some say im growling but im just talking.. Playing tug.I am a big dog so I amvery strong, (5 & half stone..) but really I am a big softy.. who loves cuddles on sofa in ya bed if I could, head on your pillow snoring.. I have so much love to give and loyal, but I am ok with being left alone as I have been left all day, outside with a nice kennel.and duvet. I dont get car sick.. Love sitting on the arm of the sofa people watching out of the window.. Good guard dog as I do bark

My bad points...oh dear... I am very boisterous and forget how big Iam and push myself on you.... can sulk, I will eat most of your food if you let me..but I do have a big bowl of food, I just graze at it all day... And I do like to run off with shoes but I dont chew...and I would not move of your sofa if I could.. And I am quite heavy so I do have a left leg/hip problem, limp this only happens if chase a ball sometimes, but the vet said I just need a pain relief if it happens but is very rare, and goes within a few hours Do not go into kennels if u go on hoilday..

Please rember i am a big boy, but so full of love.. looking for a forever home.. Many thanks REG

The reason Reg is looking for a new home is due to his owners have seperated and the current owner has to work all day 6 days a week and some nights. She knows that he needs more love and attention that he is used too, also he misses the company and is being left too long on his own.


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.

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 1yr 9mths
Breed: Japanese cross American Akita
Colour: Black & fawn
Location: Edenbridge

Please meet our loving, bouncing and adoring Akita, Maya.
We are sadly having to rehome Maya due to no fault of her own, our working commitments have seen unanticipated change and we simply cannot give her enough hours in the day.
We’ve had Maya since July 2017, in which we have thoroughly enjoyed our time and tried our upmost to give her the best conditions possible. Having previously owned Akita’s in the past, she is by far the most affectionate and loving one we’ve had the pleasure of owning. She absolutely loves attention and will follow you anywhere, trying to squeeze in a cuddle as often as possible! Very spirited by nature, she loves nothing more than her toys and to play/run with in the garden, often willing to involve her owners in playful activity. She is submissive of humans, a little fickle of strangers, and however, can be rather excited at the sight of another dog! She understands basic commands such as, sit, down, paw, ‘say please’, wait, stay and come. Her recall isn’t quite there, but is easier to manage if she knows you have tasty treats on you! We haven’t seen any pre-emptive or sudden aggressive behaviour towards other dogs, it appears she simply wants to greet and play with them.

Maya’s previous owners (1st owners until 8 Months old where we took her in) Maya from were a young family who 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. Maya has crate experience from living with the previous owners – we have never used as it was clear she seemed quite uncomfortable with and we stress that it’s a method potential new owners do not use.

We initially experience behavioural issues, such as not being completely house trained and having quite the separation anxiety, but we have seen a major improvement in both regards with her being fully house trained and the separation anxiety being far more manageable for her. We found a set routine was key in overcoming issue, which we can elaborate on when making contact in person. Maya has been spaded and is up to date with her injections as of 29/08/18.


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


Good points

• Extremely affectionate for the breed
• Gentle by nature, food/toys can be withdrawn with absolutely no aggressive/territorial/possessive reaction
• Very playful, gently bites when playing and will stop immediately when instructed to
• Has experienced all types of terrain and very much enjoys new outdoor environments
• Likes toys especially squeaky ones or a balls on a rope
• She loves moist/wet/jelly food and has been exposed to raw meat diets successfully. Dry meat chews such as pig/cow’s ears, dental sticks, tinned tuna are some of her favourites
• Calm and patient around children
• Tolerates car journeys well
• Understands basic commands
• Behaviour on the lead is good, experienced with using a Halti harness/lead and would recommend continue usage (used in the above photo)
• Very much a tail wiggler when greeting you!

Not so good points

• Can be quite excitable around other dogs and small animals so due care is required
• Maya is a terrific jumper and may pose a risk to low 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!

All in all, Maya is an absolutely wonderful dog, who will bring much love and joy to her new owners as we have had the pleasure of experience. She truly is magnificent!

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


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.

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.
