Maxy Lakeland Terrier DofB TBAss Retained by family

Current Status: Retained by family

Maxy's Story : Maxy was owned since a puppy by a lady whose mother had 2 terriers and maxy socialised regularly. Maxy proved too much to live with very young children and now another on the way. He was taken in as emergency by the mother but kept separate from visiting children but someone let him out and he nipped (Didn't break skin) and now his life is treatened as other Rescues are saying he should be put to sleep. We know Lakies and they rarely can mix with toddlers and babies. Maxy is a busybee and need a family reflective of his needs, as a young head strong terrier. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Maxy is neutered; chipped and fully vaccinated.

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).

***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 Maxy'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.

Original Referral information : We work with our dogs & often reveal a different picture & positive skills as they build trust. urgent call from a behaviourlist who has been working with Maxy and states he is a really good terrier but is over challenged in his current setting: She has convinced the family not to put Maxy to sleep and found us and bring him into safety tomorrow
