Kika – Terrier Cross

Terrier SOS is at its capacity in terms of dogs it can manage - and we are always dreading opening our inbox because the need seems so great....
This is the beautiful Kika.  Kika was one of the many dogs abandoned in Spain - she ended up in the same perrera as Lolo.  Time was not on her side - she is a larger (15 kilo) cross - and she ran out of time - they needed to clear kennels and she would be the next to go.  I had been asked if we could help her several times - and we said we were unable - but I got a final message asking if I could just try and squeeze her in - if we said No - Kika would lose her life - it is really that simple.  So although we really just don't know how we find the room - we did.

We get put in the most impossible position - and we work hard to change the destiny for these dogs - dogs like Kika (right, below with Lolo).

We have never regretted saving a dog - and they deserve a loving family and a chance to get to shine.  Could you be Kika’s Guardian Angel?  Kika is only 18 months old - she is a female Terrier cross - she is a bit larger that a fox terrier - she is a very loving girl and she needs a family that has the time and commitment to her.  She has never been a pet and will need some help to make that transition - she has been showing anxiety about being left and we will be working with a behaviourist.  The prospective family will continue the work we are putting in.  She will need a family that will be around for her - and due to her excitability she cannot live with any young children.
She is in Norfolk - she is speyed, vaccinated, passported and health checked.  She cannot live with young children or small furries.

Lolo – Fox Terrier

Meet the amazing Lolo!  A beautiful fox terrier boy and an honoured member of the Pointy Ears Club!
Like so many of our dogs, we got a message about a boy at risk in a perrera in Southern Spain - so through the usual wonderful volunteers he came into our care. He went into kennels with another of our rescued dogs, Kika.  They were firm friends - which just shows he can live on his own or with another dog (with proper introductions).  Lolo is 5 years old, neutered and in foster in Nottinghamshire.

Lolo is a super little dog. He enjoys being outside, always on the go, sniffing out the local wildlife and patrolling the fences and keeping the neighbourhood safe. Indoors he's the first to relax on his bed or (better, in his opinion) on a chair or sofa. His foster has often stood up from desk and turned round to find Lolo has taken up his rightful place on her chair. Lolo loves a cuddle, on his own terms, he'll snuggle up in the sofa and watch a film with you but is just as happy working on a chew in his bed.

With ears like these, there's no sneaking past Lolo, he wants to be part of whatever is going on in the home. Whenever you are, there's Lolo, right behind you or sitting on your foot. Just don't leave the bathroom door ajar...
Lolo loves humans and is so friendly with everyone he meets, he even showed no fear when meeting the vet. Lolo is getting used to seeing other dogs out walking. He's picked up the training really quickly, and now walks really well on the lead. However, his recall is typical for a terrier (i.e. non-existent!) and he is very prey driven so we expect life for Lolo will be enjoyed on a lead!  See a video of Lolo on our facebook page

Prince George – Cairn/Yorkie Mix

Drum-roll please, for His Terrierness, Prince George of TerrierSOS! Found as a stray in Spain, Prince George is a young terrier cross that is in need of a new home. He is currently in UK foster, with his kennel-mate Princess Georgina.  He is small (approx 5 kilos) and really lovely - but he is wary of new people.  He has the 'ones he trusts' - the rest he would prefer at a one metre radius to begin with.  No aggression, but he drops to the ground or flattens in a submissive fearful state upon first introduction. george01 He's still quite insecure. He has bonded with the kennel owner and seeks her out for reassurance. So Prince George will need a calmer home - we anticipate he won't be great with loud children as they can frighten him very quickly. Do you have a spare throne in your home for our little prince?

Mr Darcy – Terrier Lurcher Mix

"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you..." Thus spake Mr Darcy, in Pride and Prejudice.  Our own Mr Darcy is similarly young, tall, dark, and handsome...  An athletic young man, looking for life time companionship with his future loving family.  He is Airedale-sized, and has everything to learn, but is fun and sweet and will make a great companion.   Need we say any more? darcy5 Spaniard Mr Darcy came to our attention earlier in August, who we moved to kennels from a perrera and is now safe, fostered in Norfolk.  He is a wonderful, happy, lust for life kind of dog.  He is young (approx a year old) and ready for the big wide world.  He is a lurcher type cross and has quite the need/joy of running - he is into everything and is quite cheeky.  He will need an active family and one that is ready to help him become a pet.  He is larger - approx an Airedale height - but on the athletic side.  He did suffer a swelling in his elbow when he arrived from Spain - this has gone down but he will need a very comfy sofa to rest on from now on.
