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.
CHESTER *** Rehomed ***
Chester is a white boy, 9 years young and is a much loved family member. Very sadly serious illness in the family means he needs a new home. Currently he is living with extended family in the Bury St Edmunds area but this is a short term arrangement. Chester is neutered and vaccinated . He is a really good boy and has lived with children. Cats are a complete 'no' as he will chase. He walks well on the lead and is friendly towards fellow dogs. He can be boisterous meeting dogs when off-lead but if they reject him he just turns away. He has never shown any aggression. A typical male [sorry guys] sometimes he has selective hearing. Chester is a lovely chilled boy who enjoys company and we are looking for a home for him where he will not be left for long periods home alone. As an older boy he is eligible for cover under our Oldies Policy which will be explained in full if you adopt Chester. Home checks will apply. For any enquiries or offers of a home please contact Lorraine Harvey on 07760 178529 or Lorraine.email@example.com
DOTTY *** Rehomed ***
Dotty is a lovely 10, nearly 11, year old white girl who is coming to us as her family are moving away from the UK. It has not been an easy decision as she has been a wonderful family pet to 2 young children, and is currently perfectly happy to share her house with a friend’s male Staffy. She reacts to the cat next door and would chase it if she got the chance, so we are looking for a cat-free home!
As with lots of Boxers her age, she has a few health issues, such as a skin allergy which is managed with diet, and a few lumps and bumps. In 2017 she had an operation to remove a number of epuli and a sizeable lump (possibly cancer) from her lower jaw. Unfortunately this has started to grow back and, whilst she is still eating and drinking OK, it can cause her some discomfort if she cuts it while playing. Otherwise she is full of life, and a very friendly girl.
Despite her family’s best efforts, her recall has never been good, and she can be very determined (she pulls!!!) when she is walked on a lead, but she is generally friendly to dogs she meets when out.
She would like a home where she will get lots of love and attention as she is used to having someone around most of the time, but there is no problem with leaving her alone for short periods.
If you think you could offer Dotty a home, please get in touch with Karen Kerby either by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 01869 321010 or 07712 669707.
We will consider re-homing Dotty as a ‘forever foster’, so that HCBW would cover her vet bills.
