Scamp's Story : Found stray with evidence of having been worked. He came over from Ireland to a Welsh Rescue holding for us, Terrierrescue: Rescue Remedies. Scamp is neutered; chipped & fully vaccinated. He has a Rabies Passport. Scamp came 10.01.17 and was kennelled in Chessington & Gatwick

Scamp'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. 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

I met the cheeky Scamp today - he enjoyed a run around my garden and next thing I know he was virtually sitting on my garden chair with his feet on the table trying to slurp Lynnes coffee and eat the shortbread biccies !!! Lovely lad and sweet and gentle boy love4.gif

Scamp met our vet yesterday as the scab ob his muzzle was infected. Only a superficial infection and Scamp allowed Laura to clean off the old scab and clean the under wound. He is now on antibiotics to help the healing. Scamp claimed his name in the crate at the back of the dog mobile intent to reach items the other side of his crate and with ingenuity managed to pull 2 leads into his crate and make short work of them.

Then photoshoot with Sarah see above! Scamp is very food focused and we noticed this on the photoshoot he knew there were treats and human biscuits around and his attention was firmly on the hunt and paid no attention to the boundary fences and under shed creeks which most Fell terriers are drawn to.



Then on to cat & Chicken test another dog. I was running out of time but really thought it was worth seeing the ex working in those highly stimulating environment. many of the Irish dogs manage farm type environments and that is separate from their 'day/ night job' Scamp did surprisingly well with the chickens but was alert and attentive to the cats. No barking but wouldn't trust him to go closer.

A wonderful Irish boy who is a Red Fell Terrier but with Irish genetics mimics a short haired Irish Terrier as his size is a small Irish Terrier bitch size.

Lovely Scamp joined Lynne on a trip to the vets today to check out the wound on his nose, bless him, its infected and he has more antibiotics to try and heal it, wrap the tabs in cheese and they're down the hatch in one, easy peasy ! Scamp also has a gunky left eye so has eye drops for that and much to my surprise he's been an angel letting me put them in !

Scamp is very sweet, I've got a horrible cold so he's been lovely company today and got some r and r for himself as well, perfect arrangement ! He's staying tonight which he will love and so will I thumbs.gif
Scamp loves his food, would keep on going for ever I think if you let him !!! No worries with me around his bowl :D He did pinch my bagel cheeky little fella ! And would have had my chicken soup given half a chance ! Keen is how I would describe him !

Scamp has thoroughly enjoyed resting this afternoon, cuddled up with me on the sofa love4.gif

I've also given him a bath and whilst I don't think he enjoyed it he was good as gold, stood still and enjoyed the lather and rinse and then loved the towel dry thumbs.gif Scamp had his dinner and has been snoozing ever since love4.gif

Scamp has done very well this afternoon, I really don't think he's used to being an indoor dog, the tele was a surprise to him ! He did cock his leg inside a few times on arrival, marking or peeing, I'm not sure which but not much so I think maybe marking ! I've let him out on a few occasions and praised him for having a pee in the garden this afternoon and we've not had any accidents for a while. I'm not convinced he's properly house trained but he is very keen to please so picking it up well and most importantly poops were done outside ! :D

For a working lad he is so loving and gentle, definitely a big softie at heart love4.gif

Cuddle time as I rested on the sofa...

So ex working Terrier becomes biggest softie ever love4.gif
And he makes a very wonderful, gentle and loving biggest softie ever love4.gif
Scamp is utterly adorable love4.gif xxx

On the housetraining front Scamp did go to try and mark a couple of times in my bedroom last night when he first went in but delighted to confirm no issues overnight or this morning and outside for pee and poop around 8am, what a good boy :D

His face was a picture when he looked in the long mirror in my bedroom...

you can see the scabby infected bit on his nose bless, he's very good and doesn't touch it with his paw but does rub his left eye which is the one he has his eye drops for. An angel again, quiet as a mouse and still for me putting his drops in this morning - there's not many do that !

Bedtime, Scamp slept very well last night zzz zzzzz zzzzzzzz, I can completely confirm he loves being a daft soft soppy house dog love4.gif

Scamp has totally won my heart love4.gif when you read ex worker Terrier you tend to have a preconception in your head, well I do even though I know I shouldn't ! Scamp is such a mega gentle loving softie that he has taught me once again to ignore any preconceptions and not form judgements until you meet ! I can't help but think he must have been quite a rubbish working Terrier though !
One thing I can confirm, meet Scamp and he will win your heart in an instant :smiley-love014.gif: thumbs.gif
Super super boy, love you Scamp xxx

Awwww lovely Scamp has headed back to kennels with Lynne smiley-sad010.gif
I'm gonna miss him and even in his short stay with me he's made a big impression on my heart love4.gif but being the gentleman he is he'll understand that dear little staffie girl Ann-Marie needed tlc tonight to recover from her spay thumbs.gif

Super duper little chap, can be cheeky which I like a lot ! But mostly good as gold :D
So his cheeky side revolves around him fancying his chances to eat anything he can see or smell !!! He did once jump up onto the worktop to help himself from the open treat bag that was at the back of the counter top ! The good thing is there is no problem at all taking him away from said treat bag as I was giggling at his antics and putting him back so his feet are on the floor ! He doesn't quite understand the difference between my food and his either and I think would happily live in the dishwasher !!! His keenness on food will I'm sure be of merit when putting in some training hours with this bright little chap thumbs.gif

House training foundations are definitely there, totally clean overnight and most of today, just 2 small pee accidents inside, one of which was definitely my fault ignoring his signals that he wanted to go out and the other was at the bathroom door which I have to say made me smile lol.gif

Here's the wee lad looking out of my bedroom window
IMG_4812.JPG


And the handsome boy out on his walk this afternoon, loving the winter sunshine :D
IMG_4813.JPG

Lovely boy to walk, easy on the lead, I had him on the extender so that he could investigate as he wanted to where it was safe for him to explore. Never far from me and did love to sprinkle at every opportunity and spread his scent around with his paw scraping on the ground ! He really wanted all the other dogs to know he'd been there !
We met a little white dog walking the opposite way round the block to us, all signals from Scamp were good but given I've only just met him we didn't do nose to nose but I sense he has dog skills.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely stroll on a beautiful afternoon :D

Come on Scamps home :crossfingers.gif:
