Prince George Chorkie Yorkshire Terrier Chihuahua Mix – Rehomed

He is small but mighty, our first ever ‘Chorkie’ here at Terrier SOS, a yorkshire terrier chihuahua mix, probably bought as a puppy as an expensive present in a Spanish pet shop. As pet shop don’t operate a return policy, he was abandoned over a year later, found straying and never claimed.

Now about 2 years old, Prince George is in London foster, and is as adorable as he looks. He adjusted very quickly to his foster family, gets on with the resident dog and with everyone he meets, dogs and humans.

George is very affectionate, quite needy, he needs to be by your side. He loves playing zoomies with other dogs in the park and has great recall. In his foster garden, he enjoys digging and hiding his bones in funny places.

He loves cuddles, in fact he lives for cuddles. He is also a bit of a kangsroo, and can jump up and down very high for treats or when he sees the lead.

Minnie – Wire Fox Terrier – Rehomed

Minnie is a young female fox terrier, taller than average, very affectionate to people. In the house with her foster family, she is very calm and very attentive. She is very patient with foster sister Fox Terrier.

After months spent in kennels, she enjoys the home comforts sofa and bed, and is house trained. This is because she is quite bright and quick to learn. She loves chewy toys and zoomies in the garden. Out and about, she walks very well on the lead. However, she gets erratic when she sees other dogs in the part, through a mixture of fear and excitement. This has improved but will need work. For this reason, she would be better suited for a family who have owned dogs before. She can live with other dogs at home and is great with older children. She is as irresistible and has many admirers whilst she promenades.

Minnie ended up in a Spanish pound through no fault of her own, she hasn’t had a great start in life and fully deserves to catch up, as well as help some humans in the same way.  In London foster.

Yoko – Welsh Terrier Mix – Rehomed

We were asked to help an ‘Airedale’ in France – he had been found wandering – they had contacted the owner on the microchip and he said he had given the dog to someone else – and did not want him back – the new owner didn’t want him – so he was in the pound.

 

Yoko is an older male (about 9).  We were asked as his last chance, and we said yes.  We were told he was an Airedale but when the Transport Van arrived and out popped this little dog, we knew he was more Welsh Terrier than Airedale due to his size!  Welsh Terriers are often mistaken for miniature Airedales (as their owners will agree!) but they’re a very different terrier indeed!  We believe Yoko is an Airedale / Welsh mix.

 

Yoko is a loving and fun boy, but he doesn’t like other dogs – and being in kennels is not ideal for him – he has been moved to a quieter environment in Norfolk and is working with a trainer to deal with his dog-dog frustrations. He deserves a foster / adoptive home. He is a bright, loving dog, he likes people and really would need some time on his own. He is 9 and is looking for a retirement home. As he is medium sized, he is more manageable with his dog-dog issues and we would work with any prospective family to ensure a plan was in place.  He walks well on a lead, travels well in a car and loves people!

Can you give this boy a lifeline?

Evoque – Airedale – Rehomed

This is Evoque – she is 2 years old and a very typical Airedale girl – so much so that her family felt they could no longer cope with her and put her into rescue. We are told she is people and dog friendly.

We are working with a Spanish rescue to help find this beautiful young Airedale girl the furever family she deserves.  She is with a rescue co-ordinator in Spain and we are working with them to see if we can find her a UK home – so they will provide the support and back up.

If you would like adopt – please complete a Homing Questionnaire and get in touch. We do love our Airedales!

Joanna Senior Airedale – Rehomed

As many of you know we are at our maximum capacity for dogs that we can manage at present. So it has been so difficult for us – as we love dogs and not being able to help makes our volunteers suffer – we never forget the dogs and their faces. But we are human and as it is, our lives are consumed by rescue, so sometimes we make the hardest choices. But … there are times that we mean to say ‘No’ and we say ‘Yes’ instead.

joanna01

This is one such time. We were told about an Airedale girl, 11 years old, a pet, but the family were moving overseas and they could not take the dog, they did not know what to do and they were running out of options and time. The dog was going to be brought to the perrera.  A horrible place for any dog, and a place no dog should experience. So we said Yes when we meant No.

A wonderful volunteer picked up the dog for Terrier SOS – to move her to our residential kennels (they are well maintained, well staffed and the dogs are cared for). Well, what she told me just broke our hearts.

This is Joanna and she is an Airedale – one of our volunteers refers to her as the Large Lass. She was bought as a puppy for a family. She was the love of their life, they both worked in Madrid and were doing well. The family was doing well, but sadly one of the partners passed away unexpectedly, the other continued working and caring for Joanna, but then he lost his job. Money became an issue and he was forced to return to his hometown. No money, no job. His only offer came from a job overseas and he felt he had no choice, and decided to let Joanna be rehomed. But not many options for an old airedale, and not much interest and he was running out of time. He reached out, and through the many connections/shares – she ended up in our inbox.

She is beautiful, well groomed, she came with toys, blanket, bed and food. She has been loved and has been a family member – and our volunteer had a very emotional pick up – another one – and we have promised him we will find her a wonderful retirement home.

Joanna is dog and people friendly. She will need a family that will understand and help her adjust – we dont want her to be in kennels so we are looking for a foster with view to adopt – we would like to move her soon so would look at foster as well.
