Dog of the week
Bess

Bess

Bess

Gender/Age: Female 10-11 yrs
Breed: Collie X
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

Bess is probably the most overlooked dog ever! She has sadly been with us for 10 years now so it’s no surprise that she now has trust issues with new people. It takes her quite a while to build up a bond with someone but it’s always handy to have some treats to win her over. She is very stubborn and if she doesn’t want to do something she won’t do it, this is how she has become very clever in conning staff to give her treats. When Bess trusts you she is affectionate and loves to be petted but very much on her own terms, she doesn’t like to be over fussed or crowded. Bess would need a very understanding and devoted home with someone who is happy to leave her be to adjust to her new home life after so many years in kennels. All Bess would love is a nice soft comfy bed and short walks throughout the day, she is housetrained and not destructive. She would make an interesting pet and if you have the time and patience she could become a loving addition to your home. Bess is best suited to being the only pet in the household as she is not used to living in close contact with other dogs/cats. We would love to find Bess a loving home in her twilight years, if you think you could be the 'one' for Bess please call us 01732 865520 or use the contact form to get in touch.

Jake

Jake

Gender/Age: male, 3yrs
Breed: Beagle
Colour: tri colour
Location: New Romney

Jake is a big cheeky boy who is looking for his new forever home after originally coming to us due to his owner's newborn baby becoming allergic to Jake's fur. Since coming to us in August 2019 Jake has been into 2 different homes but returned both times. This is due to Jake having some behavioural issues, most likely because he was never given the proper training and care in his formative months as a young pup. Firstly, Jake is a typical beagle - he LOVES food and he loves to steal anything and everything! However, this can lead to some occasional possessive behaviour so we are looking for someone who is both beagle experienced and has previous experience of dealing with possessive/guarding traits. Secondly, Jake bonds very well with his human and can be very loving and loyal but does not like to share his human so he will need to go to a home where he can have one to one interaction. Jake is good with other dogs but not cats and will need an adult only home. He is very playful and cheeky and will make an absolutely wonderful companion for the right person. If you are interested in giving this handsome cheeky chappy a home please phone the New Romney branch for more information on 01797 366620.

Bo

Bo

Gender/Age: male, 2 yrs
Breed: cockerpoo
Colour: apricot
Location: New Romney

Bo is a very lively energetic young boy who is looking for a patient loving home after having a bad start in life. He was taken on by a couple after they found he was being locked in a crate all day by the previous owners and not being socialised at all. Unfortunately due to this Bo has developed a fear of new people and will react with aggression when he first meets anyone new so anyone interested in adopting Bo will need to make several visits to the centre to gain his trust. Bo has shown guarding behaviour in the home and will react with aggression if anyone tries to take food or toys or anything he considers 'his' away from him, therefore we are looking for someone with experience with this kind of behaviour and who will be able to help him overcome these issues. Bo has previously lived with another dog so may be fine to do so again although he can be very dominant so may be better suited as the only animal and he will need to go to an adult only home.

Tweet

Gender/Age: male, 9-10yrs
Breed: Jack Russell x
Colour: Black & tan
Location: Edenbridge

Tweet is a very affectionate boy, who is often overlooked because of his age although he doesn’t act his age at all. He is very stressed in kennels so often barks at people but he only wants to say hi and have a cuddle. Once he is out of the kennel, he loves to play with his toys especially squeaky ones, these also help to calm to him down on walks as he get very excited. Since being with us tweet has become very stressed and vocal whilst interacting with other dogs and will need a loving understanding owner to help him socialise with other dogs. Tweet would make a lovely companion for an adult only home, where he can have all the fuss and cuddles he wants. I have been here for 6 months and have not had a home since being here, no one has given me a chance, I've not even been reserved and had my name on the reserve board. Please ask to see me outside the kennel and in the socialising room you will see a different side of me.

Tito

Tito

Tito

Gender/Age: male, 4 yrs
Breed: lurcher
Colour: tan
Location: New Romney

Tito is a very energetic, loving boy who is looking for his forever home where he can be given time and space to settle at his own pace. Tito has had a difficult start in life after being found as a stray and it's possible he was mistreated at some point as he can be very reactive around fast movements which tend to startle him easily. He is good with other dogs, although can be quite jealous if they get the attention rather than him so would be better suited as the only animal living in an adult only home. We are ideally looking for someone with experience of lurchers and who has time to help Tito feel safe and settled in his new home, preferably one person on their own as he doesn't like to share his human! Tito really is such a loving boy who just needs a calm owner to help him feel safe and loved, if you are interested or would like more information on this handsome boy please call the New Romney centre to talk to a member of staff.

Gucci

Gucci

Gucci

Gender/Age: Female, 12 years
Breed: Jack Russell x
Colour: White & Brown
Location: New Romney

Gucci is a very independent strong willed lady, who is very affectionate once she trusts you but this is on her own terms. She needs someone who is able to visit her regularly before she goes home so she can accept you in her own time and learn to trust you. Once she trusts you she is very friendly and will seek affection, ear tickles are her favourite! She loves wondering around and going for walks, but must be kept on lead as she has no recall and will just do whatever she pleases. She is good with other dogs, but is very dominant and so if living with another dog, they must be submissive or accepting of her. We are looking for a quiet, adult only home where she can enjoy the rest of her retirement. Gucci does have Cushing's disease and so we at Last Chance are managing this, but she will need regular check ups to ensure she is doing well. We are happy to get her fostered or adopted, so if interested please do ring us on 01797 366620 to discuss.


Buster

Buster

Buster

Gender/Age: Male 6yrs
Breed: Patterdale x
Colour: Black
Location: New Romney

Buster is a cheeky chappy who is looking for a loving patient home to call his own. He was originally found as a stray so we don't have much past history on him but it is possible he was mistreated as he is wary of strangers and absolutely terrified of loud noises. He isn't very keen on going for walks which tend to make him quite stressed but he simply LOVES chasing tennis balls so he would be better suited to someone with a large garden or bit of land where he can safely explore and play. Buster can sometimes exhibit compulsive behaviour as a stress response i.e circling if he is frightened but we have been working with him at the centre and have found he can be distracted by a treat or squeaky ball. Buster is a high energy dog and finds kennel life quite stressful so we would love to see him in a home, preferably in a one to one situation with someone who is experienced with the breed. Buster can be good with other dogs but will chase cats and he will need an adult only home. Once he knows and trusts you he is a very loving and loyal boy who just needs someone to give him a chance. Please call the New Romney branch on 01797 366620 for more information about this lovely lad.

Zac

Zac

Gender/Age: Male, 9years
Breed: Jack Russell
Colour: black and white
Location: Edenbridge

He likes going out for walks and he loves his squeaky toys and singing along with them! Zac needs more socialising with other dogs and he doesn’t like cats. He needs an adult home only.


Fenton

Fenton

Gender/Age: Male 4yrs
Breed: Labrador x Airedale x Patterdale
Colour: Black and White
Location: Edenbridge

Fenton loves to play and spend time with people. However, unfortunately he has had numerous homes in his 4 years which makes him anxious and he was never given the appropriate socialising and attention as a puppy therefore has some problems now. He does not like other animals including other dogs in or out of the home, he also does not like postmen/women and people who come to the door, although once they are in the house he is such a friendly, happy dog you would think he had a secret twin! He must go to a responsible, adult only home with people that can give him lots of well deserved attention.

Here is what our staff have to say: Fenton is a very friendly affectionate boy. He loves bringing you his toys , he doesn't want you to touch them just look at them while you stroke and fuss him. He has a very high prey drive and becomes very fixated when he think he has a scent. He will dig and dig and dig in a certain spot if he thinks something is there so he does have to be pulled away to make him snap out of this, often he will come away covered in mud all proud of himself. Sadly Fenton doesn't like other dogs mainly collies, he can walk calmly on a lead but if a dog comes up to him he will tell them off and go for them, so therefore he would have to go to a home as a only pet. Maybe in time with a lot of socialising he can slowly be introduced to some dogs. Fenton is a very loyal dog to his owner so would always want to protect them from harm, So slow introduction to new people and strangers is best done very slowly. Sadly one thing he always sees as a threat is the Postman/woman, whenever they approach he will lunge and go for them protecting his home, hopefully this is something that could be sorted with a post-box outside the house or a porch so Fenton never has to actually meet the postman/woman, same could be said for deliveries etc. Cyclists are also a fear he has so likes to protect himself before he gets hurt (he doesn't understand that cyclists wont hurt him). In the home however Fenton is absolutely lovely and sweet, he will just want to be around you getting fussed. He loves all toys , fluffy ones , squeaky ones and rubber ones . He so cheeky when coming back from his walks in the centre, that he quickly pulls into empty kennels to look and steal from the other dogs. His kennel is always covered in toys on the floor and in his bed, its surprising he even has space to lay down or sleep, but he does manage to fit in with his cuddly bears and get snug with them. He unfortunately hasn't had the best training and missed all that as a puppy and has spent most of his puppy and young ages in kennels. He would love a adult home with someone who can show him the love and training he needs. He would make a lovely pet and will make you smile on a daily basis.

Thank you Carrie

Bodin

Bodin

Gender/Age: Male 7yrs
Breed: Malamute
Colour: Chocolate & cream
Location: Edenbridge

Bodin is a very handsome chap who is good with other dogs but prefers small dogs really. We are suggesting an adult home with someone who has experience of the breed. Sorry no cats and adult only home please. Bodin is a lovely big boy who can be strong on lead but loves long walks and cuddles. The Alaskan Malamute Dog Breed, a little of what you should know! Bred for strength, originally used to pull sleds with heavy loads. Physical Characteristics, large and robust, triangular head with small erect ears and bushy tail that curls over their back, various colours, black/white, grey/silver/white, red/white and brown/white, medium to long coat, thick and heavy. Activity, moderate to high. Positives friendly, playful and patient. Things to consider: can be stubborn and has an abundance of energy. Hi my name is Bodmin and I want to tell you my story, due to circumstance beyond my control my mummy and daddy had to say goodbye to me, I miss them so, so much. I love my cuddles and miss cuddling up on the sofa when I was allowed on those rare occasions with my mummy and daddy, the good old days, it makes me so sad when I think back. Also when I think of all those glorious days in the woods, oh what fun I had even thou sometimes I was a little bit naughty and did not come back or even listen sometimes when called back, eh that's in our breeding, we can be a bit stubborn at times. Obviously I need to brush up on a few good manners, I can still jump up at times, sorry but I can get so, so excited, I just want to love you and for everyone to love me. I do like dogs, but generally feel happier and more comfortable with smaller breeds I think this is because of my then house mate, my little Jack Russell friend that I lived with until my mummy and daddy's daughter moved away taking my little Jack with them. This was a very upsetting time in my life, I did love him, he was a really good friend to me. I just need some love, someone that wants to be my friend, someone who knows my breed that can see through my fur, slobber and high jinx, oh yes also my love of water, nothing better playing with the hose pipe when it's on, paddling pool well that's just HEAVEN.


Monty

Monty

Monty

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

Monty is a such a handsome young man who would love to go to a nice new home. Monty loves to be around people and is really quite affectionate. However, similar to so many rescue dogs we collect as strays Monty was obviously never socialised as a pup and so he is dog aggressive. This is something that could maybe change over time with the correct training classes and devotion. We really would like to see Monty go out to an adult home with no other animals.

Here is what the staff have to say:

Monty has come from a bad past. He has a hunched back where the vets think he was kept in a crate that was too small for him for a long period of time. Because of this he does have bad trust issues so would need someone who can help show monty that not everyone is bad. Monty is not good with any animals and will bark and pull to them. Unfortunately he gets so frustrated that he hits your leg when wanting to get to other dogs. So he is to be muzzled when out in public. He is improving very quickly when out on the lead now. He can calmly walk with a dog in sight and not bark or hit your leg. He would never be able to meet dogs but would love a home with someone who can keep up his training and continue the work with him. In the home he is very cuddly and affectionate but has to be on his terms. He would love a big bed to stretch out on as he loves to sleep! Playing chase in a enclosed area with a ball or fluffy toy is his heaven! Carrie x

Alfie

Alfie

Gender/Age: Male 8yrs
Breed: Staffie X
Colour: Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

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. Read more about Alfie by clicking on 'Home2home' above tool bar.
