GRACE ***** Reserved *****
This is the gorgeous Grace who is 18months old, un-neutered, but up to date with her vaccinations. She loves to have human company with lots of fuss and attention, but isn’t quite so keen on other dogs.
She currently lives with her Boxer brother, but unfortunately they have started to have disagreements which have resulted in a fight.
Gracie is looking for a home with no other pets, and any children would need to be over 12. She will need ongoing training with walking and recall as she reacts to other dogs she sees.
Once settled into her new home she will need to be spayed.
This lovely girl has lots of love to give and is ready and waiting for her forever home. If you think you can give that to Gracie, then please contact Tracey Lowes on 07778 933529, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
ROCKET ***** Rehomed :) *****
**** PLEASE NOTE: We are not taking any more enquiries at the moment for ROCKET ****
We are looking for a calm, but strong, family for the lovely 4 year old Rocket.
He is a big, bouncy boy who can be very excitable and will use his physicality to test the boundaries. He is not aggressive, just super, over-the-top friendly! He has lived with older children, but because of his strength he has been known to push them over, so we would exercise caution when re-homing to a family with children.
He is fine being left for a couple of hours, but he would love a garden of his own to explore and play in, and plenty of walks to burn off some energy.
If you think you Rocket could fit into your family and would like more information about him, please call or email Karen on 07712 669707 or email email@example.com
Please bear in mind, he is a strong boy who will need work on his meet-and-greet skills. However, he is keen to learn, and would be ideal for someone with time to spend on his training. Due to his current situation he has never been off lead, so we have no idea of his recall.
Missy is a 7 year old Boxer cross, who has been in HCBW foster since last August recovering from a very complicated cruciate operation (actually she ended up having 3 operations). She will always have a slight limp so she doesn’t need much exercise, and her weight needs to be constantly managed to prevent excess stress on her other ‘good’ back leg. She is on a monthly dose of Cytopoint for a recurring skin allergy which is now, finally, under control.
Unfortunately, Missy doesn’t get on with other dogs, so when she is taken for a walk she reacts to any dog within a ½ mile radius, and is constantly on the lookout (under every car and behind every bush) for cats to chase. She is a very loving girl when she gets to know you, and enjoys nothing more than a cuddle on the sofa. She is fine to left for a couple of hours, as long as the bin is out of sight and there’s no food left out on the worktops!!
Ideally she needs a calm, adult only house, with a large garden, and someone who understands that going for a walk is not a relaxing experience for her.
If you think you have the right home for Missy, and the time to spend with her, please get in touch with Karen Kerby by phone: 01869 321010 or 07712 669707, or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Missy is currently in Hertfordshire.
Dogs in other rescues
The following Boxers are not with HCBW, however, we are posting up their profiles here to help promote them and find them new homes. Please contact the rescue noted for more information about these dogs.
Duke , a beautiful young boxer/rottie cross
Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary, Bristol
Can you offer the perfect home on a permanent or foster basis to help this lovely boy?
Sadly due to issues with separation anxiety and a new baby on the way, Duke became too much to handle in the home. He is full of beans and can be strong on the lead, however with some training and time this could be overcome. He is sociable with other dogs but can be a bit boisterous so he will need plenty of space to interact and play, he can also become quite fixated on other dogs and struggles to know how to interact with them. Having no social skills, he will need 121 training in the home and initially will need to be walked in a quieter more rural area to not become over aroused. He really doesn’t like to be left alone either, so he will need someone who can be home with him initially all of the time slowly building his tolerance to be left with a regular routine and some stability and training. In the garden he can be an escape artist so he will need good secure fencing and again his need to escape will need some work in the home.
We understand that Duke will have some training needs and we would love to find him an adult home with someone experienced in bigger breeds who could just give this lovely dog the chance to thrive. He will need to live as an only pet and with adults or older teens only and no cats . He really is a lovely dog who just needs some guidance but will reward you with big soppy cuddles and utter devotion in return.
Please call and speak to our re-homing team for more information.
