Benny is a three year old tri colour male, who needs a new home as his owner’s circumstances have changed.  He is vaccinated and microchipped.  Benny has spent the last two years living with Bella, and would love to be rehomed with her, or as a companion for another dog.

 

Benny likes to go out on a walk, and after some initial sniffing, he soon settles down and stops pulling on the lead.  He can be let off lead, although he has wandered off to investigate a scent and got lost in the past, so if he was to be let off lead in his new home, he would benefit from some re-training.  Benny is used to travelling in the car.  He likes to meet other dogs, and plays nicely with them.  He has not shown aggression to another dog or person, unless there is food around, when he can become possessive.  Because of this, we will not rehome Benny to a family with young children.

 

At home, Benny is house trained and crate trained.  He can be left alone for a few hours, and is not destructive.  When their owner goes out, Benny and Bella go to their kennel in the garden.  Now he is an adult, he has grown out of trying to escape from the garden, although if he is left alone for too long, he will try to get out.    If Benny steals an item, he will give it back, unless it is food.

 

Benny has never lived with a cat, so his new home must be a cat free one.  He has lived with teenage children, and due to his food possession, we would not rehome him to a family with younger children.  He is a real family dog, and loves to be with his people, ideally basking in front of a warm fire or radiator.  He has spent the last two years of his life with Bella, so the perfect situation would be that they find a new home together.

Bella is a two year old tri colour female, who needs a new home as her owner’s circumstances have changed.  She is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.  Bella has spent her life as a companion to Benny, and it would be nice for them to be rehomed together, if possible.

 

Bella walks nicely on her lead.  Her owner tried using a Halti on her, but she didn’t like it.  Bella is worried by unfamiliar dogs, and will react to seeing them by pulling on her lead and barking.  If she is off lead, she will bark in an attempt to scare them away, and may nip at them if they come too close to her.  Bella has excellent recall and has been let off lead on walks, although her reaction to other dogs means that this is best reserved for a secure, dog-free area.  Bella is used to travelling.  She has never shown aggression to any person she has met.

 

At home, Bella is housetrained and crate trained.  Bella can have accidents when scared, so her new home must be a calm and patient one.  She can be left alone for a few hours, and is not destructive, although she cannot resist pinching rogue shoes if they are left lying about.  If she steals an item, Bella will give it back without any difficulty.  When their owner goes out, Benny and Bella go to their kennel in the garden.  Now she is an adult, she has grown out of trying to escape from the garden, although if she is left alone for too long, she will try to get out.

 

Bella has never lived with a cat, so her new home must be a cat free one.  She has lived with teenage children, so older children could be part of her new home.  Bella would like to be rehomed with Benny, who she has grown up with, but if that is not possible, she would be happier without another dog in her home, due to her reactivity.  She is a very affectionate girl, who enjoys cuddling up to her people and being a lap dog.  She responds well to training, so would really thrive in a home where she could take part in lots of activities, learning new tricks and having new experiences.
