Gibbsy & Billy's Story: Their owner lost her property and had nowhere for her boys to go, as the arrangements she had made let her down at the last minute. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving their lives. Gibbsy is Billy's father and is two years older. They are devoted to one another. They can be nervous by nature when meeting new people, but are very loving. They grew up with a young child. They may have a rice sensitivity and flea allergy. Gibbsy and Billy are neutered, chipped, and vaccinated. Gibbsy & Billy were homed but as they have not been socialised with dogs their excitement prompted return. They are now waiting in boarding kennels nr Gatwick awaiting their new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

:welcome.gif: to the family Gibbs & Billy love4.gif love4.gif xx

I met and walked this delightful pair on Sunday. When I went into the kennel both boys were in their baskets shaking. I sat down and started talking to them. In no time at all they were both on my lap and giving me kisses. They could probably smell my girls so were quite comfortable around me. They totally ignored the other dogs in the kennel block as we left. Both boys walk well on the lead with no pulling. We started off through the woods where the boys were busy sniffing all the new smells on offer. Next was a stop off at the Poets Hut where the boys enjoyed cuddles. Gibbs was happy to take sausages but Billy turned his nose up at them! We then continued our walk where both boys were happy walking with passing traffic. They crossed the road nicely. We saw a couple of dogs out but they didn't react at all. These boys have so much to offer. Somebody is going to be so lucky to have them. Well trained with excellent manners. Would love to spend time with them again. love4.gif xx

What a lovely pair of terriers. I walked them for the first time yesterday and, to be totally honest, am not completely sure yet which dog is which. What I do know is that they were both very friendly, more than ready for a walk, and totally enjoyed that walk. They seemed happier than I had seen them previously when I had spoken to them through their pen door. They both enjoyed a treat or two. I am really looking forward to getting to know them better but hope so much that they find their forever home very soon as finding themselves in kennel care must be very confusing for them. angel13.gif] :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

I walked these two sweet boys this morning, you get a lovely welcome, they are very easy to harness. We had a lovely walk in the woods, they were so excited when they spotted squirrels and desperate to follow them! Typical terrorist nose to the ground and investigating every new scent. These two are really bonded, and they walk beautifully together. Please consider these two sweeties for their forever home :smiley-bounce016.gi:

It was great to be able to spend time with this lovely duo again today. What a difference I saw in them this week. As soon as they saw me by their kennel door they came running up to greet me. As we walked through the kennel block Billy was a little barky towards the other dogs. Much more confident this week. Both boys were eager to get out of the kennel block and get on with their walk. They were quite pully but this is easy to manage. A lot of it was just down to shear excitement. We saw other dogs out and about which both dogs had a little bark at. Billy is more the feisty one of the two. They loved their walk investigating all the new smells. A horse rider was approaching us so we stepped aside into the woods so that the horse could pass by safely. Both dogs had a little bark but soon stopped when asked. The horse rider remarked how lovely the boys were. Gibbs is a big fan of sticks, branches and logs. This week he kept stopping to pick them up, even trying to drag broken tree trunks along. The bigger the better 0002.gif] As we were walking back to the kennels through the woods, a squirrel dared to run up a tree in front of the boys. Both of them barked excitedly and stood up on their hinds legs for a better view. It was really lovely to see the boys more settled this week and their characters emerging. Fantastic pair, very loving, well mannered and great fun. Typical terrier boys love4.gif xx

(Since returned)

Cathy and Derek came on a very rainy day and as they arrived the sun came out and its warmth made us all happy... Gibby & Billy bee-lined Cathy and their nerves faded as Derek proceeded to fuss the twosome. Happy days and years ahead...

(Since returned)

Gibbsy and Billy are settling in to their new home reasonably well. Gibbsy has taken to his new circumstances brilliantly but Billy is finding the transition a bit more challenging. They are both very strong on leads and sadly intolerant of other dogs but we are making small steps to deal with this. Taking them for walks seperaty has allowed their individual personalities to appear.
