Current Status: Available Charlie's Story :
Found stray/abandoned & chipped but unclaimed within a council pound: Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place after 1 year waiting with another Rescue. Charlie is neutered; chipped and vaccinated. Charlie arrived into our Rescue in Oct 16
Charlie is a 3 year old American Bulldog (AmBull). Charlie is a character and a half and generally received as a loony goofy lad. Charlie is keen on his walks and can initially play with his leads but as his energy settles away from kennels is a affable and easy to manage. Charlie likes other dogs and during his last placement was regularly mixed with a Shepherd female in the paddock. Charlie is difficult to transport as he immediately looks to get out of his crate and if not in a crate will start to grab to try and anchor his acute stress. Charlie has had sore ears which has needed weekly treatment at our vets so now jumps into the travel crate and is beginning to settle after 20 mins protest. Stressed in kennels Charlie needs a home environment with people who are used to managing large dogs. Charlie hasn't got any 'guardiness' as usually evident with large guard breeds but is mouthy when stressed but well meaning and heart melting whilst he acts out his anxiety.
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 when they are sure of their dogs instincts & skills, 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.
