She has lived with cats but is not good with other dogs either in the house or outside. Currently Bella is in kennels in Milton Keynes.

This is Reggie. He is a lovely 7 year old red and white boy with a black mask. Reggie is much loved and is coming to rescue following a change in his family’s circumstances meaning he is being left for far too many hours home alone.
Reggie is excitable on initial meetings but settles well. He is a nervous boy and will air snap or lick his lips but not in an aggressive way . Reggie is uncomfortable around young children and therefore we are seeking an adult only home for him. He has never lived with dogs or cats nor has he been socialised with them.
Outside Reggie will pull on the lead and would want to chase to a cat if one came into his view. He is neutered and up to date with his vaccinations.
Currently Reggie is in his home in North Bristol. If you want to know more or think you could offer Reggie a home please contact Lorraine.email@example.com or ring 07760 178529
BUGSY is currently in foster and for the moment we are not taking further enquiries for him
This is the lovely Bugsy who is 6 years old.
His family's circumstances have changed and sadly they can no longer keep him with them. His owner describes him as full of life and a very funny boy.
He has been with us for a few weeks and has gained some weight which he needed to do. He has lived with children and another dog, but not cats.
Outside he is good, but can be very awkward with other male dogs, particularly entire ones.
He is neutered and uptodate with his vaccinations.
If you would like to know more please contact Lorraine Harvey on 07760 178529 or Lorraine.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bugsy is in kennels near Milton Keynes.
This is The lovely Lenny who is a 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 and when left will bark and wee. Lenny has been living with small children for the last 5 months and gets on really well with them. He isn't good with other dogs or cats.
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 email@example.com
Lenny is currently in Milton Keynes
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.firstname.lastname@example.org
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: email@example.com
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.
Roxy is a little red/white bitch, neutered and healthy, aged 8 years. She is excellent
in the home, is used to and likes children, and is happy to welcome visitors.
Roxy is not very happy when travelling in the car, but short journeys should be
However, Roxy has real issues with other dogs. Her present owners have exhausted
all possible efforts to encourage her to relax is doggy company, but she clearly has
deep seated issues and is now unlikely to accept the presence of other dogs – and cats
receive similar treatment! In the home she is calm, friendly, affectionate, and great
company so we are looking for a new family for her where her longstanding issues
will not be a problem.
Roxy needs a home, preferably in a rural environment, where she is the only family
pet. Idea lly that home will have a large well fenced garden where she can play
safely, and occasionally go out for walks where she is unlikely to meet any other dog
walkers. Although Roxy is at present used to being left for some time each day, we
would love to find her a home where she would have human company for most of the

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.
