Bella                      Dougie

Bella and Dougie need a new home through no fault of their own and they need to remain together. They are both 8 years old and are spayed/neutered & chipped. 
We have a complete history of them being good with children.

UPDATE 5.2.2017: Bella & Doug are on route to their foster home. Both are extremely thin, ribs showing, nails curled into their pads. Doug has a gunky eye and seems unsteady on his back legs. They have nothing at the moment, so we will place up an Amazon wish list for new collars, leads, beds and toys & decent food shortly.
We will be able to update further once they reach their foster home.



UPDATE 6.2.2017: Following a visit to vet for a full health-check.
Doug had 5 nails embedded in his pads & Bella had 3 - both on antibiotics.
They both have ear infections - so both have treatment for that.
Doug has dry-eye and arthritis in his back legs.
Both have pressure sores, both have tartar build up on their teeth.
Bella has a slight heart murmur but no medication needed.
Both are undernourished - Bella weighs 13.3kg & Doug 16kg

A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PURCHASED BITS FROM THE AMAZON WISHLIST TO AID IN THE CARE OF THIS LOVELY PAIR.

UPDATE 14.2.17: So today is day 9 and look at the difference in these pair. Doug has gained 5.3kg and Bella has gained 3.7kg and we can't say thank you enough for everyone's kind donations towards their care. They are now ready for their forever home and only the very best will do.



If you are able to offer the ongoing care they need and deserve please get in touch by completing an application form. A home-check and donation of £150.00 will apply.




Bruce

Age : 4 years old 
Neutered : Yes
Chipped : Yes 
Vaccinated: Not up to date  
Good with dogs : Slow intro
Good with children : Yes 8 years +
Heath Issues : None
Area : Essex




Bruce is coming into rescue through no fault of his own.

He is 4 years old, has been neutered and chipped, however is vaccinations are not up to date.

Bruce is on a Chappie and biscuit diet at present, his treats are ham/chicken and biscuits. He gets upset tummy if fed just cooked sausages.

Bruce weighs in at approximately 26kg and is a very lively boy.
He unfortunately doesn’t get the walks/exercise he needs at present, so this is adding to his bounciness indoors. He isn't allowed full run of the house whilst his owners are not around as he is a chewer and will destroy his bed. Whether this is something that would change with exercise and stimulation we don't know, but any new home would need to be aware of this and be able to use the necessary precautions.
 
Due to Bruce being very full on he will not be placed in a home with small children. We are recommending any home needs to have children aged 8 years plus, at least. 

Bruce has not lived with another dog so a slow introduction is definitely needed. He is a humper so please also bear this in mind.
Bruce has no re-call at all, so can’t be let of lead. He does not like cats or small furry animals which also include birds.

Bruce does pull on the lead whilst walking but with training he does learn quickly if given the guidance needed. 

Bruce will be a handful to start with as he has much energy to burn off, but with with the right experienced owner we think he would calm down.  He does mouth and doesn't appear to have many social, but he will sit for a treat which is a good place to start.

Bruce can be ball and toy obsessive as he LOVES to play. 


This boy may take time to settle and show improvement, so please only get in touch if you have experience, the time and energy to work with him.  

If you think Bruce could be the bullie for you then please complete an application form - (*an adoption fee of £175.00 Bruce will apply, please see the bottom of the page)




Tilly

Age : 5 years old 
Spayed : Yes
Chipped : Yes 
Vaccinated: Yes (booster not up to date)  
Good with dogs : Not socialised
Good with children : Yes 7 years +
Heath Issues : None
Area : Oldham








Tilly needs a new home through no fault of her own.   We would like Tilly to be re-homed as an only dog as she hasn't been socialised. She doesn't like cats, and will chase small furries/birds.

Tilly lives with a 2 year old child and also has experience of older children visiting. She has always been fine with the children and although Tilly has a bouncy nature she has not knocked the toddler over.

We feel Tilly needs an experienced handler who can establish boundaries for her. Tilly appears to be food/treat motivated so this could be used to further her training.

Tilly is currently being left for up to 6 hours and is walked every other day. We believe this is the reason for her bounciness and perhaps her eagerness/pulling when out being walked. We feel that with one on one attention, lots of consistent exercise and rules she would settle right down.

If you think you can provide Tilly with the home she deserves then please complete an application form. (*adoption fee of £175.00 for Tilly will be payable, please see the bottom of the page).

Benson
Age : 5 years old  
Neutered : Yes
Chipped : Yes  
Vaccinated: Yes
Good with dogs : Yes /very slow intro
Good with children : 13 years + 
Heath Issues :None
Area : Essex



Benson's life has been a bit unsettled up until going into foster recently and so he is in the process of settling down. The information on him below is initial and we will update the details as we go along.




Benson is still looking for his forever home - his foster family has updated us with the following information:
 

Benson has settled well in his foster home and is now much more relaxed. He still can be can be a bit  nervous around new people but this is getting rarer as he is now getting used to being more social. 

He is very clean in the house and will generally indicate when he needs the toilet. Benson will require a very secure garden as he will run off if he gets the opportunity. He has no recall - so no off lead walks yet. 

He can be mischievous around the house if he is bored, and if given the opportunity will chew a shoe or a dustpan - he will need to be watched to make sure he doesn't steal and eat any objects. He loves to play fetch with a kong. A good walk usually relieves Benson's boredom and he will then settle for a good sleep. 

The foster family is at home with Benson for most of the time so he has not been crate trained. He barks when they go to first leave but can be distracted with a few treats and then settles down. He has not used to being left for long periods of time and so we will look for a new home where this can remain the same.

In the typical bullie fashion Benson does have a veracious appetite and will steal your food if given the chance. His current diet is raw meat (no chicken) with vegetables and a few biscuits. He is not food aggressive in any way and gets very excited for his dentastick last thing in the evening. 

Benson can be unpredictable with other dogs but he has improved greatly. He is very well behaved in a large pack - he does join in with the local bullie walks.  It's usually other dogs barking at him that unsettles him and starts him off (as we all know a dog off the lead over the park with the owner miles away is usually the problem). A water bottle is used for discipline and generally keeps him in order. He is muzzled around other dogs but not on his late night or street walks. 

Benson is a very affectionate dog and loves cuddles and neck scratches. He will sleep normally on the sofa but also likes to join you in bed. He is very strong so will require a home with at least teenage children. He will pull initially on the lead and pull you out the front door but he settles very quickly into a pleasant walker. He will need ongoing socialisation and training.

Benson is a very clever dog, who just hasn't had the luxury of the best start in life. He's a happy dog generally and and will give any new home lots of pleasure.

UPDATE 12.2.2017 - Benson joined in with the Absolute Gravesend walk today. Jeskyns Country Park has safe enclosure's so he was able to have a good run about. He is such a special lad and is so deserving of his own home

 

If you think you can give this gorgeous boy his permanent home he deserves please
complete an application form. (*£175.00 adoption for Benson fee will apply, please see the bottom of the page)





Rio
Age : 7 months old (June 16) 
Neutered : Yes
Chipped : Yes  
Vaccinated: Yes
Good with dogs : Yes   
Good with children : Yes
Heath Issues : None
Area : Amerham










Rio is currently at an animal home waiting to be re-homed and they have asked Absolute for help. The assessment below is from the Animal Home and any application received will be forwarded to them for possible progression.

'Rio was found with severe mange and has had intensive treatment. He is ready to be re-homed.
Rio is such a character, very sociable and gets on well with people and all the other dogs in the kennels, he does need a bit of house and manners training as has never been in a home environment, but we don’t think it will take him long to learn. He is very cheeky, playful, loving and loves cuddles.

We think Rio is a gorgeous pup, who would be suitable for a family who have bull breed experience, as they need to understand and manage the strong will of this breed. Basic house training would be needed, as would a few recall training lessons to give the adopters the confidence to let him off the lead. Once settled, he will make a very loyal and affectionate family pet'.

If you think you can give this lovely boy a new home please complete an application form and we will forward it to the Animal Home for further progression. (*a homecheck and adoption fee for Rio will apply, as per the animal home's own rules and regulations)

Parsley


Age : 4 years old approx.
Good with dogs : To be re-homed as an only dog
Good with children : Teenager upwards
Heath Issues : None
Area : Wansford (Near Peterborough)







Parsley is currently at an animal home waiting to be re-homed and they have asked Absolute for help. The assessment below is from the Animal Home and any application received will be forwarded to them for possible progression.

'This is Parsley a male Bull terrier cross. Parsley came in to our care via the pound and arrived very underweight, we don't think in recent times before coming into our care he has had a good time. This lad may look like a tough boy but he is so far from this - he loves people and is a real softy.

Parsley passes other dogs without issue but is looking for a home as an only pet. He can often be found sleeping in his bed ignoring the hustle and bustle of kennel life. Parsley loves a treat and would excel at reward based training. Our Parsley needs a forever home where he can continue to gain weight and be loved like he so deserves.

I have spent some time with Parsley recently and I think his tough look has worked against him. He's the first BT we've had in for a long time, and to me he displays a few traits very common in bullies. He did share a kennel fairly contentedly with a female staff, but a vocal male dog passed close to Parsley's kennel and he redirected on his poor kennel mate. Parsley needs to be the only pet in the home.

When I have walked him he has passed dogs with no concerns. He will take liberties in the

home and he needs to be reminded he doesn't rule the roost. I've had no issues with him at all and he loves a cuddle with me and my boyfriend. Unfortunately we already have a staffy boy, a bullie boy and a rather grumpy Patterdale old lady, otherwise he'd be home with us! I would just like to see his profile shared with experienced bullie people as I think in the right home he would be a fabulous addition. In my opinion he walks on a lead like a dream. He'll do anything for a treat and he loves toys. He was picked up as a stray so I would recommend he doesn't go with kids as we have no history'.  

If you think you can give this lovely boy a new home please complete an application form and we will forward it to the Animal Home for further progression. (* a homecheck and adoption fee for Parsley will apply, as per the animal home's own rules and regulations)
