Hank is coming into rescue following a change of family circumstances. He is a much loved boy and has been great with the young children he has lived with.
Hank is 6 years old, neutered , vaccinated and micro-chipped. He is a really good boy in the home. Outside he starts by pulling on the lead but settles. He can be difficult when first meeting new dogs and sound aggressive but once the initial meet has happened and the dogs have come together he will mix quite happily.
Hank is currently in Andover and the current Coronavirus will mean a delay in immediate rehoming but if you think you would like to give Hank a home or know more about him please contact Lorraine Harvey by phone: 07760 178529, or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This lovely chap is a boxer cross, aged approx 8 years old. He is much loved but circumstances mean he is not getting the walks exercise and attention he needs.
Lennox is a happy, friendly boy , used to children but not cats, who he will chase. He is excitable .on first meeting but chills quickly. He has not encountered livestock and has not had off-lead experience other than the garden.. He walks well on the lead but will pull towards other dogs. If they yap at him he really doesn't like it.
Lennox is a chunky lad and does have a lump on his back although this has not changed shape or grown for well over a year and is benign.
Lennox would be covered by our Oldies policy which will be fully explained if you would like to offer him a home. Currently Lennox is in his family home in Southampton.
If you would like to know more about Lennox or offer a home, please get in touch with Lorraine Harvey by phone: 07760 178529, or via email: email@example.com
Lenny is currently in foster and is recovering from surgery to remove a lump on his leg. Once he has recovered, we will try again to find him a forever home.
He is a lovely 7 yr old red and white bobtail. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date with his vaccinations.
Sadly for Lenny he suffers badly with separation anxiety which means he cannot be left on his own, and can be wary of strangers until he gets to know them
Lenny is looking for a forever home where he will be able to learn that it isn't so scary to be left for a while , where he will feel safe and secure. He will need someone to be at home all the time and be the only dog.
If you think you could be that person, and have lots of patience and understanding to help Lenny with his next stage in his life, then please contact Tracey Lowes on 07778 933529, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
This lovely young red and white boy is Oscar, he is 15 months old and looking for a new home, he knows basic commands and walks well on the lead when encouraged.
Like any boxer he loves a cuddle on the sofa and is comfortable and relaxed at home, although he can take time to warm to visitors. Oscar does however, come with some issues which will need to be worked on, he is a nervous boy who needs to learn the world is not a scary place and to trust people, he is particularly wary of men and this will take time and patience to resolve, he can bark if he feels uncomfortable.
Any prospective new owner for Oscar will have to be prepared to go back to basics, as if he were a new puppy, very gradually exposing him to the outside world and different experiences to build his confidence. We are looking for an experienced knowledgeable and pet free home for Oscar where someone is around most of the time, he will not be rehomed with children under 15 and behavioural support will be offered by HCBW.
We are seeking a new home for Oscar in easy travelling distance of where he is currently living, in the Hampshire area.
If you would like to find out more about Oscar and are interested in offering him a home please call Eleanor Barton on 07947 609594 or email Eleanor.email@example.com
If you do not meet the above criteria please do not apply for Oscar, he has very specific needs.
Missy is an 8 year old Boxer cross, who has been in HCBW foster since August 2018, initially 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 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 is with Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary, Bristol
Duke is a beautiful young Boxer/Rottie cross. 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 the re-homing team at Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary for more information.
