Our special love for Churchy (Churchill) who is now in temporary foster...but has gone lame on one leg so we are investigating this on Tuesday. We are praying it is nothing sinister. Our thoughts for SarahW who is supporting Churchill

Churchy's thread

We were approached to help Meera 1.9.15 and she was homed 3.9.16 She has matured greatly within this journey thanks to our devoted volunteers. Lizzie came into Norfolk pound May 2014 and to us in May 15...she is now enjoying her home & family again supported by our volunteers: So many people help our dogs as they find their way into Rescue and are supported whilst in our care. It is so touching.

72 Longstay homed in 17 month period (Waited longer than 1 year)

Our Stats 2016: 96 dogs

Comment: Our Homing Team
The culture of dog adoption is of its own. Our first instinct is viewing any home offer, coming from the eyes of understanding each dog's individual needs.

Sociability: We may be specifically looking for a home as an only pet; to join another skilled resident dog or one of similar energy levels. We maybe looking for a pack home or understand our dog is settled around cats so giving a family with a cat(s) the opportunity to Rescue rather than forced to buy a puppy. We are looking for scope of the garden and the level of security it offers. We are also eager to hear expectations outside of the home within high and / or low dog density regular exercise areas.

Off Lead expectation: This is and has to be a big issue when viewing a possible home offer. Dog laws have changed significantly and reflect a general public who have less experience and therefore tolerance of, off lead intrusive dogs, especially if they are bull breed. Generally dogs approaching people and especially jumping up to greet, is no longer acceptable. To achieve off lead these days any dog has to have proven 100% recall & be good mannered with people & children. The off lead dog must have good manners meeting other dogs & tolerance for any propositioning dogs they meet, dare I say it especially if they are bull breed. Connectedness needed by our terriers is to 'turn on a button'. Terrier owners need to trust their recall & be scanning the distance to 'distract before they engage/ commit'. Terrier owners have to know the territory and know how to avoid fox or badger sets; holes in fences by railways, paths leading towards open roads or easy access into people's back gardens. There is also the incidents of dog napping; poisoning (accidental or deliberate). The social dog can be guilty of approaching dogs who are not welcoming and can start fights or become a pain to fishermen; livestock; picnickers; playing children etc. More dogs are forced to wear a muzzle outside due to control orders or be they simply sensible owners. We find its 'one mistake' nowadays and you feel the full force of the law. A wrong dog or person encounter, and its a muzzle for life with a control order from the dog warden or police. They are not interested in who started it, your dogs long record of good behaviour, the complainant is seen as the upholder of the law; the other the defender and usually gets the blame. Its good to take pictures and be first to make the complaint sadly. This is why in Rescue Remedies we counsell towards supporting your dogs on leads in public for everyone's sake. A muzzle is a sign of a responsible owner not a sign of a dangerous dog.

Inclusiveness in the Home. Our culture as a Rescue is to be very relaxed in the home and ensuring a secure garden so our dogs can be relaxed also. We look for inclusivity especially if a dog is spending solitary time during the day during work periods. We are happy to home in flats but frequent access to short and regular long walks is a must. Flats demand housetraining attained and maintained; a dog who settles in own company, and relatively quiet...isn't howling their owners in or barking at external noises. We have many a story around balconies generally we don't like them. (We don't like swimming pools or electric gates either) Flat living, to us should mean 'free range' that is unrestricted access to furniture, and ideally bedrooms. We do not believe in cages/ crates other than to securely travel in: Open beds give a homed dog scope and comfort. A temporary crate is acceptable until housetraining and freedom from destruction is established when left: We find some of the dogs who come in to us have crate phobia with justification and have yet to establish their developmental milestones through chewing which had been inhibited, through very restricted opportunity since a puppy. Finally never buy a child gate always a dog gate it is over a foot taller and accomplishes restriction better than a crate, as necessary.

Realism: We view dog applicants like job applicants, only the former is of a much higher responsibility in our view. Some dogs can not cope with confrontative attitudes; or head-held attitudes looking to place labels such as Dominant behaviour traits ; Aggressive behaviour or Lacks subservience. Dogs wag their tails for many different reasons; So often we hear 'but he was wagging his tail' as if a wagging tail always means happiness; it doesn't. Watching a dog's body language you begin to read that dog's level of concern, relaxation and trust. Some dogs are naturally vocal; any noise isn't a growl it can simply mean expression. The classic is when we are told 'the (or your)) dog wanted to attack every dog': Correction: Our dog has a name and they may well have wanted to approach a dog to smell and greet them, but first they need to get to know their new territory, community and intuit their owners responses. 'To get to or to get at' you need experience to read intention: Meetings can be facilitated so both dogs relax and satisfy their curiosity and sense of trust. Our dogs are presumed to have an impoverished upbringing...we start with 'baby steps' and you can't go too slowly so they are always gaining a sense of positive reinforcement and shaping.

All families are lovely. All families want to get it right. Anyone applying to Rescue needs to be applauded but then they do need to adjust their minds towards helping a dog. We run a professional dog rehoming service and it takes many years of experience to learn our skill and to sense the deal breakers and pertinent issues before selecting appropriate dogs. A Rescue family comes with a good balance of humility; confidence; tolerance and commitment. We look for stability and take the long view. A Rescue family's expectations need to be such, so our dog is succeeding from the outset...they are 'glass half full people' loving the dog and providing support. I always ask our homing families to have forgiveness; our dog will get it wrong initially until they sense what is acceptable and they are shaped by praise and more praise.

Diet is key: We like variety given to our dogs. Would you like to live on steak and chips every meal from now henceforth day in day out. There is a myth that dogs have to have the same food every meal...life is more than controlling bowel motions. Better to up the quality of food and cut out cheap chinese manufactured treats and add real food into your dog's diet. Some explore raw diets. Others fresh cooked food; Others Complete dried with complete moist to add ease of digestion & flavour. Some Dried or wetted dried. We are not diet gurus but ask people to be conscious as costs allow. Colourants are definitely OUT. You get what you pay for: It's a good motto!

We're a special Rescue who does not discriminate on breed; age or 'homeability'. Many Rescues are economically wealthy as they pick off the easy to move dogs without a second thought for the dogs they left behind: They don't neuter, they don't take elderly dogs on with complex health issues. Some don't take their dogs back. But dog wardens know Rescue Remedies will always help if they can...

What makes us a VERY SPECIAL RESCUE... is YOU because we find those families who will take on an older dog

Comment: We all love our Rescue work and know whatever activity we are engaged in, our Rescue Remedies (Staffierescue; Terrierrescue) is the most important work! Most reading this weekly diary share their lives with one Rescue Remedies dog if not a few Rescue dogs who at 'a point in the past' came home with us. This week as is usual we have been linking up with new and forever friends. Both our homings were with loyal committed Rescue Remedies families Cori and Deborah & Anthony...the time was right for little Patch and Miko to come to reside. Supporting our Rescue financially; with regular or sporadic time episodes committed to our dogs is rewarding. People know we are passionate and are in the Realism of Dog Rescue not picking off 'the fluffies' as it is sometimes termed. We are there stretching our resources; capabilities and engaging to help our dogs who wait and wait.

Truly heartfelt gratitude and remember one of our mottos... our dogs couldn't and we couldn't make it without YOU

Comment: So many volunteers have been involved with our super week ...8 homings 4 of them happened the day Dianna spoke to them which had us jumping into car and changing walking schemes etc to 'Make it happen' People involved in the heart of our Rescue understand its like being in the military when you get that call...you run

:smiley-chores002.gif:

I am bowled over for Peggy; she was the surprize homing having just spent 2 months waiting for a Rescue place then 2 weeks waiting for her spay place and 2 days with Ros in recovery and her family appeared. Peggy flew out. We are all delighted for each of our lovely dogs who made it home this week, each has their story and its wonderful: When they became 'at serious risk', we picked them up and here they are having made it thru Rescue into permanence. Remember all the best homes are Rescue homes!

We are doing well getting our bitches spayed now only have 6 to do and a poss Shepherd we are just arranging to take. Please let us know if you have fostered before just email or if not complete a fostering form.

Comment: Yep...with a sadness in the air, winter is here and our hearts are down knowing our kennelled dogs are in cold wet concrete kennels. People that aren't around kennels can buy into the romance, there is no romance ref kennels. We have said many times how much we bust our guts to keep our dogs out of kennels and break a leg to get our dogs out of kennels for an extra night. Dianna's regular saying is "its not what suits us ask our dog would they rather be sleeping in a kennel tonight or in your home!" Yes ofcourse the kennels we use are heated..but only over night. Our dogs have to have access to their runs and the kennel doors are more often open than shut, due to regular activity. So we have the coats up in the kennels and our volunteers come out of their snug homes to break our dogs days up, and to remind them they matter; they are truly loved and to build their spirit; confidence and uplift their mood. BUT yes winter is here and I for one have a sense of foreboding thinking of our lovely ones open to the elements ....but they are safe... being constantly thought about and we are working hard to plan their release date. Keep the foster offers coming in homeless means homeless
