Billy's Story : Two weeks ago a young staffie cross was dumped at a vets in Kensal Green. He was underweight, flea ridden and neglected, and the ex-owner confirmed he has had already multiple owners who likely had social/addiction problems. : Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Billy is neutered; chipped and vaccinations in progress. Billy is coming into boarding kennels nr Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family

PLEASE NOTE: Dog laws have changed with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces, and manage and support encounters so as not to place dog's lives at risk, (Destruction or Control Orders are common place nowadays).

***PLEASE HELP OUR LONG STAY DOGS: Our min. adoption donation £175, which supports our work and Is non returnable. We will offer an alternative dog should our dog not settle given adequate time and reassurance. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life and exist on the goodwill of our supporters and volunteers.

Please click for Billy's thread for regular updates, new pictures and videos. To apply to home a dog, you must be ready within 7 days and complete a homing questionnaire submitted Online We work fast to secure our dogs their loving homes and can be talking to up to 10 families at any one time. Please remain open: We have the dogs we have. Our dogs need a supportive family to offer patience, time & tolerance to allow them to settle.

Billy's progress through our Rescue below
Original Referral information : We work with our dogs & often reveal a different picture & positive skills as they build trust. Early Aug 18: We were asked to offer Billy a rescue place by a vet here is the information she sent...
Billy has been surprisingly good with both large and small dogs and is very social with both people and dogs. He is fascinated by cats, and has tried to follow a few but just interested rather than perturbed by them. He has also had some nice interactions with a variety of people in the park and generally enjoys getting a stroke from other owners. I have been clicker training which is coming on well and he is showing much less anxiety on the lead as a result. He has also had some time on a long lunge lead in the early hours this morning and is getting the idea of recall. Generally he is much happier and more relaxed than when he first arrived, although has done a fair amount of anxiety chewing of objects in general as you would expect with any rescue and young puppy staffie cross.

Weight wise, he now measures in at 26.4 on last weigh in, so has done very well.
On first arrival he was only 22kg. He is now 25kg of solid muscle when castrated but is now softening up a bit and seems more relaxed overall since the op.
