Dogs Looking for Homes



Absolute Bull Terrier Rescue have these lovely bullies looking for their forever homes. 

If you think you may be able to offer one of these fabulous Bull Terriers a loving home, please complete the Application Form.

                                                                                                                                           




Reuban

Age : 6 years old
Neutered: Yes
Chipped : No
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Yes 
Good with cats : No
Children : Unknown
Medical Issues : Deaf/no others
Area : Brentwood, Essex











Reuban is currently in kennels and we are looking for a foster/forever home for him as quickly as possible.  

Reuban will need an experienced bullie owner/or deaf experienced home. Reuban is in kennels as he became too much for the resident dogs due to him pushing the boundaries and wanting to be "top dog" at all costs. It is felt that he could be homed with a submissive female only. He is an extremely loving and funny boy and has many good qualities. He is house & crate trained and does ask to go outside, he will sit and wait for his food and seems to know that a wagging finger means to stop so he has had some level of training. 

If you can offer Reuban a foster space or his forever home please complete an application form. (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)





Tammy

Age : 2 years old
Spayed: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : No 
Good with cats : Yes
Children : Yes
Medical Issues : None known 
Area : Stoke On Trent





Tammy is a two year old small standard (possibly miniature) who can be left on her own for a good few hours, travels well in a car, is good with children (currently lives with several) and is good with cats. Tammy was bitten by one of the other resident dogs at 6 months of age and since then has zero tolerance for any other dogs and she has to be muzzled when out in public.

Tammy is of course very energetic and is vocal but the assessor feels this is elevated at present due to her not having been walked at all in 2014 and she at present lives permanently in the back yard and is brought in at night and sleeps with the cat(s).

Tammy was fine with the assessor, and very friendly until he bent over her to put the lead on and at this point she bared her teeth and did give quite a strong warning, she did however put this behind her for the chance to eat a gravy bone. Tammy isn't great on a lead and she does pull but as she is small in frame she was not overpowering.
 
Tammy need to be an only dog and will only be re-homed with an experienced Bullie owner who can give her lots of exercise and the one on one training/attention she needs.

If you feel you can offer Tammy a forever home as an only dog and you have the experience to handle her ways and work on them please get in touch by completing an application form(*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)





Dodger

Age : 6 years old
Neutered: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Okay with small 
Good with cats : Doesn't chase 
Children : Yes
Medical Issues : None known 
Area : Leeds











At present all we know of Dodger is that he is white with brown mark on bum, he is microchipped, entire and his vaccinations are not up to date. He is great with kids, good with small dogs but not big dogs, and he  doesn't chase cats. He has no aggression issues with food or treats but does stressed with change and licks/chews his paws.  We are waiting on a further assessment and will update here with more news as soon as possible.

We need a foster home for this lad as soon as possible for further assessment. If you have space in your home please let us know by getting touch at info@absolutebullterrier.co.uk 








Cleo

Age : 8 years old
Neutered: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Re-home as only dog 
Good with cats : Tends to ignore 
Children : No
Medical Issues : None known 
Area : Ipswitch

Cleo is a lovely girl who has a pedigree background - the current owners have all the documents (currently stored in the loft) for her including the microchip details.  Cleo is a healthy girl who has had only one bout of kennel cough approximately 4 years ago with no other health issues since. 

Cleo walks on a half check lead: She pulls excitedly to start with but then usually calms down and walks steadily depending on who and what she meets along the way. She tends to pull away from other dogs and likes to be left alone. If a loose dog approaches threateningly she will pin them down but has never drawn blood. Cleo does get on well with the other family dogs but often walks away preferring her own space. Although Cleo’s recall is generally good she can only be allowed off her leash when there's no one else (including dogs) around- for fear of her reaction without control of a lead. She does require more freedom but this is rarely possible in her current home.


Cleo's current family used to have a cat which Cleo was scared of.  As with dogs she tends to ignore them when out on walks if they are just sitting still but we are not sure of her reaction if a cat came too close or ran by. Cleo's only experience of meeting other small pets was a rabbit owned by a family member – Cleo showed no aggression but licked it!

Cleo does growl every time the children in the home (aged 5 and 2) approach. She is slightly better with the quieter older child, but is very wary of the 2 year old who of course demands attention and can be noisy. We have been assured that Cleo has never nipped either of the children. She acts like a ‘grumpy old lady’ who just wants to be left alone. She was with the family before the children were born and appears to resent their presence and the attention given to them. The assessor diverted the children’s attention for a short while by giving them some paper to draw a picture of Cleo and during this time Cleo enjoyed a neck & ear rub. She allowed the assessor to playfully pull her tail, pick her feet up, nuzzle up to her face and there wasn’t a murmur let alone a growl – she just came back for more until the children returned to which she responded by leaving the room again.

Cleo barked when the assessor arrived and she was obviously wary of a stranger entering the house.  She was restrained at first but soon became friendly once she was spoken to. Upon offering hands for her to sniff she did growl but this was accompanied by a wagging tail. Cleo was then quite happy to stay for a cuddle until the children came in.
Cleo is not a chewer but does tend to drag her bedding around so she has a single duvet with a duvet cover over it.  Cleo is currently left alone for approximately 6-8 hours and appears to enjoy being on her own but she does seem to miss the family when they go on holiday. Cleo travels well in the car.

Cleo allows adults to take food/a bone away from her but does growl at the children. She does occasionally tail spin and can become obsessed by her ball. She is frightened of fireworks and dislikes the hoover. 

The assessor feels that Cleo is a lovely dog that needs a home with no little children or other dogs. She is not aggressive, however does need some assistance with socialising with other dogs so that her walks/exercise/play time can be enjoyed more without being fearful. She would be very happy to be the sole recipient of love & attention.
 
The current owners are a lovely family and the decision to re-home Cleo has been very difficult, however they want the best for her. If you feel you can offer this lovely lady a home of her own where she can bask in peaceful love and attention then please let us know by completing an application form.  (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)
 






Max

Age : 3 years old
Neutered: No
Chipped : Unknown
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : No
Good with cats : No
Children : Yes 13+
Medical Issues : None known 
Area : Isle of Wight












Max is a miniature bull terrier who is very friendly towards people, he likes to talk to you to get your attention.  Max is not good with other male dogs but could possible be fine living with a female - a slow introduction would be required with the facility to separate. 


Max does chase his tail a lot which may be due to stress. Max can be possessive against children, if the child runs towards the person who he see's as pack leader and so he will only be re-homed into a household that has teenage children and older. Max is not food possessive apart from when he has a bone, so its probably best he is not given these.

Max is crate trained and can be left for 4-5 hours a day - he will happily sleep in his crate providing get gets long walks and adequate attention to balance these periods out.  Max will wee when he is out on walks but will only do a poo in his own back garden and he usually pulls all the way home if he feels the need to go. Max would make someone a fantastic walking/trekking partner as he has boundless energy.

He will require some basic training, he has no recall at all, but can be distracted by a tennis ball so this could be used to teach him.He is currently fed on dry food only, but suffers with wind, so maybe a raw diet would sort that out.

Max hasn't had a very good start in life, but he has got a lot better with love and patience from his current owner.  The spinning may never be resolved but over time it may reduce as he settles/calms to his environment.


Max will only be re-homed with someone/a family that has experience as he will need guidance that only an experienced bullie handler will be confident to give. If you can provide a calm environment with plenty of exercise that Max needs please let us know by completing an application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)






Peppa

Age : 14 Months (as of March 2014)
Spayed: Yes
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : Best suited as only dog
Good with cats : Yes
Children : Yes 8+
Medical Issues : Sensitive Tummy
Area : Chatham Kent



 








Peppa is a white female approximately 14 months. She has been spayed, microchipped and is up to date with her vaccinations including kennel cough and is wormed every three months.

Peppa is toilet and crate trained and has attended 4 months of training classes including socialisation. The commands she knows include sit, wait/stay, down (this takes some persuasion) and recall. Peppa has LOTS of energy (even for the breed) and requires at least an hour and a half walking per day minimum. She can play fetch, and returns with her ball no matter what other distractions are nearby.

Peppa is great off lead when a ball is involved and will not usually divert her attention away from you. She loves squeaky tennis balls (Kong Air) and will happily play fetch for hours on end, although care should be taken as she occasionally chases the ball so enthusiastically she can end up grazing herself or biting her tongue. Care should be taken if Peppa is off lead without a ball as she can be quite curious and may run over to meet other dogs, owners, boys playing football etc. without consideration to any recall command given.

Peppa loves to be the centre of attention and
loves cuddles. She loves human contact and will happily follow us around the house; she loves to be involved in everything. We haven't known Peppa to be destructive to the house or furniture, she is usually left with Kongs and other durable toys to satisfy her inquisitive nature; she has been known to examine the contents of a handbag. Peppa is not currently allowed upstairs. Peppa has no known ailments although, due to her energy and enthusiasm in everything she does, she can occasionally graze herself. She has quite a sensitive stomach and care should be taken over her diet. We have had success with feeding her Arden Grange chicken and rice dry food and we would strongly suggest that this is continued. Peppa should not be given foods with colouring or human foods apart from cooked meat and raw carrots (which she loves).

Peppa currently lives with 2 cats. She would be fine living with relaxed cats that are used to dogs/possibly a very relaxed large breed dog/but ideally will be re-homed as an only dog. Peppa will not be homed with temperamental cats or dogs, as she loves to play but doesn't read body language very well.  Due to Peppa's lively nature and the fact that she is still mouthing occasionally, she will not be homed with small or nervous children. 

Peppa can be left up to 4 hours but no longer, she lets you know when she wants to go out and will tap the door to get back in 

If you think Peppa could be the bullie for you then please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)








Lola

Age : 2 years old
Spayed: No
Chipped : No
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Yes on walks but never lived with
Good with cats : No
Children : Yes all ages
Medical Issues : 3 legs
Area : Edinburgh


Lola is a lovely girl who has 3 legs - she was a pup when she broke her back leg, it was pinned but that didn't work so it was amputated - she has adjusted very well and it doesn't bother her at all. Lola is good with dogs although has not lived with one, she is excellent with children of all ages, but doesn't appear to like cats. Lola is a beautiful girl and loves nothing more than sitting up and cuddling up with people. She is a small bull terrier as her mum with a mini and her dad was a standard size. 

Lola is currently in foster so we should have some more news on how she settles very soon.

If you have any questions or would like to make an application to be Lola's forever parents then please fill in an application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)











Shelby

Age : 2 years old (DOB: 1.3.12)
Spayed: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes but not up to date
Good with dogs : Yes on walks but never lived with
Good with cats : Yes ignores them unless they run/never lived with
Children : Yes
Medical Issues : Deaf
Area : Hertfordshire

 
Shelby is such a sweet little girl but needs somebody that has experience due to her being deaf and nervous around feeding time. She needs someone who can give her the time and attention she deserves, who can also recognise how being deaf can make her more nervous in certain situations. For example; she is very wary of people going up the stairs close behind her and gets very anxious, at feeding time looking behind her in case people are going to creep up and get her food.  She loves nothing more than a sofa cuddle, a good belly rub, and a visit to the park and is very people friendly. She just needs someone to work on her feeding times and get rid of her anxiety issues over time.

Shelby is really good on the lead, pulling infrequently. She is fully house & crate trained and will happily spend 4-5 hours in there without a bark. Being deaf has its positives too. She walks along happily ignoring any dog barking at her across the street and never hears the postman coming. She is a clever but stubborn little girl who has been trained with sign language. She amazes lots of people when following commands (but in the typical bullie way she will sometimes only do things when she feels like it). She knows sit, stay, lie down, paws and go to bed or wherever you point enough times.

She is very chilled once she has gotten rid of her crazy bully energy at the park. She does need her walks and runs or is noticeably more naughty at home because she is young and full of beans. But when walked for half hour to an hour twice a day she is a calm dog really and the vets always comment on how placid she is. Being deaf obviously means that you cannot recall her unless she is looking at you but if you wave a ball of any kind at her it will bring her back to you. So a spare ball is always taken out and she is fine off lead in areas that are enclosed. If she is at a park with a ball she totally ignores other dogs as she is ball crazy. She is a wonderful bullie who just needs some additional reassurance at her anxious times in order to settle down.


If you have the experience of dealing with a deaf bullie and are able to provide the consistent reassurance for Shelby so that she can settle and become part of your family then please complete and application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)






Zoe

Age : 6/7 years old 
Spayed: Yes
Chipped : No
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : No
Good with cats : No
Children : Yes
Medical Issues : Previous trauma
Area :SPAIN











Zoe is currently in a shelter in Spain. Absolute have been asked to try and assist with finding her a home in the UK as they don't have many adoptions in Spain.  We obviously haven't had the opportunity to assess Zoe one on one so the information gained is form the shelter.


Zoe is a miniature bull terrier. She is good with adults and children, she always looks into your eyes and walks really well on a lead.  She is a sweet girl who has suffered a lot. Her previous owners unfortunately left her in a position where she had to defend her own life at the expense of her own health. When she wasn't useful to them anymore she was abandoned with a painful skin infection, eye and joint problems and old unhealed fractures. 


Zoe needs to be an only dog and needs a family who can make allowances for her past and give her the time and love she needs and deserves. 


If Zoe should find a suitable home in the UK we have been advised that land transport is made by volunteers and the shelter would raise money to get her a flight. Getting Zoe to the UK will not be an overnight process so Absolute will need to call in as much support as possible to make the journey possible so please bear this in mind.

If you think you can open your home and heart to this girl who who needs a safe haven for the rest of her years please get in touch by completing an application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)






Luna

Age : 2 years old 
Spayed: No
Chipped : Unknown
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Only dog household required
Good with cats :Unknown
Children : Never lived with
Medical Issues : None known
Area :Rotherdale

Luna is a mini bull terrier. Up until yesterday (21.3.14) she lived with  a staffy and a young puppy. Following an incident where the puppy was allowed to try and help himself to Luna's food and she responded with an attack on the puppy, she has now been moved to an Absolute foster home for further assessment rather then be put to sleep as one of her owners wanted.  


On the evening of 21.3.14 we gained an update for Luna's foster parents : Luna has settled in really well. She appeared to be a bit nervous of men but we think this is following a mild trauma. She has been described as a very placid little girl, non reactive to the forester's own dogs from the crate. They will be taking them out for walks together over the weekend and a full assessment will follow.

UPDATE: 22.3.4 Here are just a few pictures of Luna's foster parents introducing her to their dogs. She has seemed fine with them....her tail was wagging the whole time with no signs of aggression.... if anything she seemed a little anxious but still kept wagging her tail. So far so good but it's still early days.....

 


UPDATE 24.3.14 Luna is getting on well with her foster family...




UPDATE 28.3.14 Unfortunately today Luna has been unpredictable with her new foster family and we think for now its best she is moved to a foster home where she is the only dog. If you can offer a foster home to Luna then please get in touch via our Facebook page/emailing us or completing an application form
 
(*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)

Buster

Age : 4 years old 
Neutered: Yes
Microchipped : No
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Yes 
Good with cats : No
Children : Never lived with
Medical Issues : None known
Area : London





 
Buster is currently in foster, he has proved to a good lad and knows basic commands such as sit, stay and no. Buster tries to be dominant and is also a little food aggressive but this can be worked on over time. He is currently crated overnight and also at the families meal times. He has lived with a bullie female recently and as soon as she reinstated herself as the top dog he was fine and settled down. He is a typical bullie in that he will have naughty moments but with discipline at the correct time, as well as love and affection he will be a lovely boy.

We would prefer for Buster to be re-homed with someone who has bull terrier experience and is used to being the pack leader. If you think you can offer Buster a forever home and the guidance he needs then please get in touch by completing an application form.(*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)








Rocky

Age : 5 years old
Neutered: No
Microchipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes 
Good with dogs : Not lived with 
Good with cats : Yes
Children : Yes 10+
Medical Issues : None known
Area : Huddersfield




Rocky was assessed and found to have a good temperament, to be friendly and playful. He is fully vaccinated, chipped and house/crate trained. When he needs to go out he will let know by sitting by the door and looking at it. 

He is good with children, however kept behind baby gates when babies/toddlers are around. This is mainly because he wasn't brought up with babies and his current owners have always responsible with the child's and Rocky's safety.
Rocky loves to be outdoors. When walking on lead he does pull it at first but only because very excited about going out, after few minutes he walked fine. He is good around other dogs and is happy to be sniffed however, he does react to other dogs barking and he himself will bark/act defensively if he feels threatened.

Rocky has been an only dog and didn't grow up with other animals apart from the cat he used to live with. He was fine with the cat and grieved when she passed away. 

Rocky loves company, however he also likes/enjoys having his own space and doesn't like to be stroked while resting/sleeping. He doesn't like to share his food and can be possessive over food. Food is also the best motivational tool for him. He grown up eating carrots and apples as snacks, also loves bread. He eats normal dogs food for main meals but never refuses leftovers. 

If you would be interested in finding out more or feel you are the right person to give Rocky his forever home please let us know by completing the application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)





Neo
Age : 3 (Dec 2010)
Neutered: Yes
Microchipped : Yes
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : See below
Good with cats : No 
Children : Yes 10+
Medical Issues : Skin issue
Area : Cambridgeshire


Neo is a 3 year old neutered male. He was well socalised with dogs and older children, until he attacked a cat approx 6 months ago, which later died under anesthetic. His current owners have lost confidence and have not walked him since the incident, so at present he is very boisterous.  Neo has a friendly nature and didn't showing any signs of worry/fear when the assessor was in the house. Neo is crate trained and can be left for a couple of hours at a time. He has not chewed anything apart from his own toys, he does not react to loud noises or cars but shows interest in chasing bicycles, and he absolutely does not like the hoover or the vets (past injections have had to be done in the waiting room). Neo does pull strongly on the lead but does travel well in the car without a crate (he is happy to settle and snooze). Neo has learnt to open door handles and so his current home changed handles to door knobs. 

We need a experienced FOSTER home who is able to work with Neo, to get him used to being walked/exercised and socalised again.  Once Neo is in foster we will be then be able to assess him closely and be able to update you as to when he is ready for a new home.

If you are an experienced bullie handler and can offer a FOSTER home to this handsome bullie boy, please get in in touch with Absolute by completing an application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)


Please keep checking back for more updates....
 
UPDATE FROM FOSTER HOME : 

Neo is a smashing bullie boy but has got a lot to learn. Neo was not toilet trained, but since being with us Neo has learnt to ask to go outside and on most occasions he gets it right, but he does slip up and as Neo has got the run of the house it can get a little damp and smelly.

Neo has been taken to the vets for a well being check and was found to have a skin condition and treatment has been started for this. Neo has been crated for most of his life. His teeth are ground down and also some are missing. He has has some scars on his face and legs, and some hair loss due to wearing an electronic collar with (probes) digging into his neck to stop him from barking. The collar has been removed and destroyed and since then he has stopped barking.

Neo is frightened to go very far on walks, it’s as if he has a fear of the outside world. I have tried to introduce Neo to other dogs, but he became so upset at the time that this will require more time before it can be tried again.   I have tried to settle Neo with Tess my bullie and for 5 days Neo and Tess got on really well until Neo attacked her. Neo caused no damage other than stress to Tess who is 14 years old so they have separated since then.

I feel Neo will settle more easily with a family that has no other animals. Neo has shown to be good with children, as our grandchildren visit. Neo requires a lot of time and attention and he will run out of the door at every opportunity, as soon as he sees it opened. Be aware that Neo can still open doors, and of course Neo does not like cats. If I didnt have Tess I would keep Neo.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR AN ANIMAL FREE FOSTER HOME FOR NEO NOW TO FURTHER HIS PROGRESS. IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE THE EXPERIENCE TO HELP THIS BOY PLEASE LET US KNOW STRAIGHT AWAY.

 




Thor

Age : 1.5 years old
Neutered: No
Microchipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : Yes
Good with cats : Yes
Children : Yes 
Medical Issues : None known

Lolly

Age : 3 years old
Neutured: Yes
Microchipped : Not known
Vaccinated :Not known
Good with dogs : No
Good with cats : No
Children : Yes 13+ 
Medical Issues :None known
Area : Battersea





Lolly is an English Bull Terrier cross. She is a real sweetheart of a girl, with a fantastic personality. She absolutely adores a cuddle and a fuss and will try to sit on your lap for snuggles! On the other hand, she has lots of energy and loves being kept busy when on walks – she would play fetch all day if she could! 

Lolly is very trainable as she loves her food. She already knows SIT, DOWN, both PAWS, STAY, DROP and BED. She loves playing with toys and playing search games with food, which keeps her mind busy! 

Lolly has been responding well to further training, as she can be vocal on seeing other dogs. She is very friendly when meeting dogs, but needs new owners who are committed to helping her through this issue. As she needs this consistent training, it is best that she is the only dog in her new home, so that her new owners can concentrate on her. 

Lolly is a house trained, although may need a few reminders when she first gets home/in new surroundings. She is looking for owners who are around for the majority of the day, as she has found kennel life stressful and may take a little time to settle into her new home. With some further guidance, Lolly will be a fantastic addition to her new family.

If you think you can provide this lovely girl a family to call her own please get in touch and complete an application form  (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page) 





Angel (Mini Bull Terrier)

Age : 5 - 6 years old
Spayed: Unsure
Microchipped : Yes
Vaccinated : No 
Good with dogs : Calm/Large breed
Good with cats : Possibly
Children :  Yes 10+
Medical Issues : None known
Area : Vauxhall, London










Angel is a miniature Bull Terrier. 

 Angel is a very loving little girl and likes nothing more than having treats (which she takes nicely) and playing with a ball. Angel pulls a bit on her lead but is very well trained and knows sit, paw and lie down.

Angel has in the past lived with a young child and is currently living with two staffies, a cat and ferrets. Although the cat is used to dogs and Angel takes no notice of him, it is probably best for her not to live with a cat.

Angel has had separation issues but this is currently being worked on and she can now be left for a short time, probably no more than a couple of hours.

Angel originally came from a home where she was kept caged nearly her entire life. She does have a slight bend to her back legs due to not having enough space to stretch within the crate. This does not cause any medical problems. Apart from once having sore paws which are now treated, Angel has no known medical conditions. The current owner believes that she is spayed.

Angel and her current owner will need to meet any prospective adopter(s) and it is very important that whoever is a lucky adopter of her that she is NOT crated and you are willing to travel to Central London to meet her and her current owner.



 

If you think you can provide a loving, crate free home for this lovely little girl then please get in touch and complete an application form  (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page) 





The photos below are of the home that Henry and Carlton were living in. Carlton the Bulldog has already found his forever home.







Henry

Age : 4-5 years old
Neutered : Yes
Microchipped :  No
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Yes
Good with cats : Not tested
Children :  10+
Medical Issues : Ongoing 
Area : Liverpool




Henry is currently being fostered by one of Absolute co-ordinators. Henry has already been to the vet as he was clearly in need of attention. The whole of his body was found to be infected in some way, his glands, eyes, ear, paws, throat. His temperature was also a little high. The vet has said that considering what he has been through and the pain he is in he has settled really well and he appears a very trusting boy.  Henry's heart is however fine. He also advised that he is not deaf as we were originally informed but his ears are just badly infected. He is blind in one eye and partially sighted in the other. From looking at Henry's teeth the vet thinks he is around 4 - 5 years old and it's just the conditions that he was living in that have made him look a lot older. For the first time in a long time Henry is not in any pain. Absolute will continue to see Henry get the treatment he needs and we will keep you updated on his progress.  

Update 6.3.14: Henry's eyes and ears have improved a little. He was let off his lead this afternoon and was able to either see/smell his foster daddy and ran to him and did some bullie spins which was really great to see. His personality is really starting to come out now and he is looking/feeling much more alert. Henry is due back to the vets next week so will have a bit more news then. 



Keep checking back here to find out when Henry will be ready re-homing. If you can assist Absolute with his veterinary care fees then please click on the 'Donate' tab and see how you can support him.

Once we receive your application, and your home check is complete (and deemed satisfactory) we do hold your details, and so are then ready to call you straight away if a dog comes in that we feel would suit you


                                                                                             
Kara

Age : 12 months old
Spayed : Not yet 
Microchipped : Not yet
Vaccinated : Not known
Good with dogs : Possibly
Good with cats : Chases
Medical Issues : Skin (possibly food related)
Children : Yes  
Area : Coventry

Kara is a beautiful girl who needs to be re-homed with an experienced bullie owner. She has been pampered a little to much and needs some further training/guidance/socialisation to learn her boundaries.  Kara is good with children and with dogs - but not in a pack, we therefore will re-home her as a single dog or maybe with one other only.  Kara does have a skin complaint at present but we think this is possibly food related - further assessment will be done. She is a typical bullie lady, lots of love and affection to be had, but just needs to learn a few manners. 





If you think you can give this pretty lady some love and guidance then please get in touch with Absolute by completing the application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)








Pebbles (now named Betty)

Age : 3-4 years old 
Neutered : Yes
Microchipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Not yet
Good with dogs : Yes
Good with cats : Not tested
Children : 13+ (not lived with)  
Medical Issues: Blind in 1 eye
Area :  East London





Pebbles (now named Betty)  is an ex-breeding bitch who is blind in one eye. She is being picked up tomorrow (17.2.14) by an Absolute co-ordinator and will then be going into a foster home. Once she has settled in she will be spayed and vaccinated. 

At present all we know of Pebbles is that she is dog friendly, lives with a cat, likes to chase pigeons, is food orientated, is very bouncy so any children in the home would need to be 10+years.  A further update will follow as soon possible.

Update from foster parents 25.2.14: 

Pebbles has been re-named Betty - new life.. new start

Betty is doing well but has come into season so we have had to delay her spaying surgery. She is really coming into her own now, has started playing and is extremely lively and happy. Betty is extremely affectionate and loves her cuddles. Although she has been allowed off the lead in the park she doesn't have a great recall at the moment. Betty loves her food and is very greedy, She is house trained/clean (only had a couple of wee's on the floor whilst adjusting to new surroundings). Her crate door is left open and she likes to pop in and out from the crate to the kitchen area. She has pulled some gloves down from the shelf but not chewed/eaten them.

Betty is absolutely adorable and has settled in well. We have been advised by the vet that her eye does need to be removed as it's causing her irritation and this can be done at the same time as being spayed. It's doubtful that her mammary glands will go down/reduce in size from over breeding.

Betty does cry a little (whimpering NOT barking or howling) when she is left on her own initially but after a few minutes she settles down. On the whole she is very nosy and loves 'helping' with the cooking at meal times. Betty is being fed on a natural diet (cooked meat not raw) with rice, pulses, vegetables or couscous.
 

Some up to date photo's will be coming soon...


Update from foster parents 11.3.14:   We have taught Betty some new commands:

She now knows her name is Betty and will respond to it.  Betty will now come running to us
when called to come. She will also stay on command and will not move until she has been told good girl. She will also drop food that she tries to scavenge of the street when told to leave,  and is happy for me to take chicken bones out of her mouth when I miss her picking one up. We are still not having much luck with “sit” at the moment, but we’re working on it.

Betty has now stopped whimpering when left on her own at night and goes straight to sleep.

She no longer snatches and is very gentle when taking treats by hand and will wait until told she can have them. She has no interest in chewing anything we have left lying around like shoes or gloves, but she does love a bone. She also likes to jump up and down on the spot when she sees anyone with food but will not jump onto them (very funny to watch, but training her not to do it).


When it comes to playing she likes to tug on a rope as long as its gently, but she is not interested in squeaky toys or chasing balls.

A couple of things any new owner would need to be aware of is that she will try and follow strangers, but walks very well on a lead with no pulling or dragging. Betty needs to only be walked with her left side to your body so she can see you or she gets nervous.

She has no interest in trying to chase cats or any other animals and is very friendly to every dog she has meet (even the angry ones). 





Betty is still in season but once this is out of the way then we will take her to have her eye taken out, be spayed and the lump removed from her leg.


She is a truly wonderful dog and someone will be very lucky to have her.


Please keep checking back here for updates on the lovely Betty. We will let you know how her surgery goes in due course. It will be a little while before she is ready for re-homing but please get in touch if you think you can offer her a forever home. 

 Update from Foster parents: 14.4.14

Betty has now been spayed. She has been a bit naughty nibbling and licking at her stitches, but they are due to be removed on Saturday. She is like a little happy puppy again, playing and skipping around, such a lovely little sweet bully.
 

Betty is brilliant with other dogs, she can be taken anywhere (trains, underground, buses, DLR etc) and loves going to the local pub with us in the evening. She is very obedient when she can see you but does have the typical bull terrier selected hearing when she cannot. She poops once a day (we like to feed her twice daily) and is excellent on a lead, she does not pull or drag (except when she needs to go to the poop as she like to go on grass). She does like to jump up when she gets really excited onto your legs, and when uber excited she will do a bully nip (we are working on this but have not managed to stop it) so would suggest she goes to an owner who has older children/adolescents.

She has had the following:  Monthly flea treatment, womer, kennel cough intranasal vaccine, full vaccination course, back leg lump removal.  We will try and get her eye removed within 2 weeks but this will depend on if I can fit her in at work. 

Betty is now ready for a forever home. If you are able to offer this lady a lovely home then please let us know by completing an application form







Lola


Age : 5-6 years
Spayed :
Yes
Microchipped :
Yes
Good with dogs :
Homed as an only dog 

Good with cats : No
Medical issues :
None

Children : 10+
Area : West Midlands

Lola is 5 and a half years old and has a truly loving nature, Although she does require a firm hand. Lola we feel would be better suited to children of 10+ years due to her being like a bullie in a china shop at times. She would be best as an only dog as she is very lively. Her previous owner advised that she has never had any health issues.


 
Lola can be left with no problems, she is good on short car journeys. She loves nothing more than to sit and have a cuddle.


If you would like to offer Lola her forever home please contact us by completing the application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page)




Bailey


Age : 5-7 years
Neutered :
Yes
Microchipped :
Yes

Vaccinated: Unknown
Good with dogs :
No

Good with cats : Not Tested
Medical issues :
None

Children : 14+
Area : Merseyside



Bailey is currently with The Dogs Trust in Merseyside. He is a chunky chap who's very popular with the staff. He loves attention and is very friendly towards people. He also enjoys his walks, meeting and greeting everyone whilst he's out.

Bailey is a lovely lad but he is strong and can pull on the lead so they feel he's best with children over the age of 14. Bailey doesn't tend to like other dogs so care must be taken when out with him and will not be able to be let off the lead. He is house trained and happy to be left  for a few hours.

If you would be interested in finding out more or can offer Bailey his own special home please let us know by
completing the application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page) - the application will be forwarded onto The Dogs Trust









 Buster


Age : 7-8 years
Neutered :
Yes
Microchipped :
Yes

Vaccinated: Yes
Good with dogs :
Caution needed

Good with cats : No known
Medical issues :
None

Children : 10+
Area : Stoke on Trent



Buster is currently in Kennels with Greyhound Gap and this is their write up:

Buster is possibly the most hardcore EBT we have had to look after, to date but in the most ridiculously hilarious way......

Buster came to us from the pound in the most sad state. He was sore, very under weight and just a total mess. We did however find that he became a calming influence on Carrie (one of our most hard to handle current kennel residents) and she settled with him and they walk beautifully.

Out and about on our kennel walks Buster walks impeccably with the other dogs until one of  them barks. He then seems to have the most endearing Rambo switch that flicks and suddenly gets a bit twitchy and has to be watched. Sadly for Buster what  he does not realise is that he has the most lame squeaky bark ever and the other dogs just don't seem to take any notice of his noise.

Due to this behaviour we feel Buster will be best re-homed as an only dog and with someone who has had experience of EBT's/their behaviour. Buster would love a home where someone is around all or most of the time and also be able to take him out walking.

Buster does need some work on lead manners and is a typical bullie in that that he drops his shoulders and head and off he goes. He is not overly pully though and tends to settle once he reaches the end of the lead.

Buster needs to be re-homed with dog sensible children of 10 plus in years. He has never shown an ounce of malice where humans are concerned but is definitely a bit over animated when giving you bully kisses and is prone to nibbling your lips/ears. He is also has the most waggy tailed bull terrier we have ever met!

Wherever Buster has been up until now, he certainly has not had the best life. He deserves someone who knows not to let his stubborn side rule them but also that this middle aged boy now truly deserves a family who will dote on him to within an inch of his life. He is very special.

If you think you can be the happy ending this boy deserves please let us know by
completing the application form (*adoption fee will be applicable, please see the bottom of the page) - we will forward the application to the Kennel
