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 encounters for at least 4 months until sure of their dogs instincts & skills, most of our dogs will need to be retained always on a lead, so as not to place dog's lives at risk, (Destruction or Control Orders are common place nowadays).

We will offer an alternative dog should our dog not settle given adequate time and reassurance.

02.01.17: Hi Lynne, Happy New Year, hope you have had a reasonable break over the holiday period.
I am hoping my quota with you has renewed now with it being New Year and all that jazz and I am wondering if you could help with Scamp. As you may know I help with dogs from Ireland and on the last lot at the last minute they asked if they could add Scamp he had been rescued from travellers and they wanted him out. I agreed with the view of trying to place him once he was safe.
He has been used to work :( he has a very scarred face and tatty ears and was said to be used on badgers, the thought just makes me feel sick).
Anyway he's neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and passported. He has shared with dogs in the past but can be a little OTT at times. Very people friendly but here where we have cats, rabbits, sheep, chickens etc he is very distracted a lot of the time. I am kind of hoping that as you have experience with working terriers you would consider him, he is perfectly safe here so there is no pressure and if I am honest I should not have added him on the last bunch but could not bare the thought of him living that life any more.
I have attached pictures so you can have a look hes a very handsome dog, possible Irish Terrier cross.
Many Thanks Mikeyx
Scamp comes on the 10th Jan 17
