Current Status: Homed Sebby's Story :
Sebby lived with his family since a puppy. He has always been protective of his food and nipped/ bite a crawling child on the face as it was coming near his bowl. The family booked him in to be put to sleep and the vet asked us if we could save him: Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Sebby is neutered; chipped and fully vaccinated. Sebby came into our care 28.11.16 Sebby is in boarding kennels in Broxbourne Click here to learn how to add YouTube Videos to your phpBB forum
Sebby is 5 years old, Border Collie x, neutered, good with dogs and adults, but now not for young children. Sebby can be possessive over food/space: Sebby is a grazer and can guard his half empty bowl hence his incident with a crawling 9 month grandbaby, and he lost his home. It will need work to isolate this issue, and get him to clear his bowl i.e. 3 small meals or a real appetiser to ensure he clears his bowl but doesn't guard the residue in his bowl Not a big issue in kennels but a staff member did witness it. Sebby has a 'collie mind' and will need an experienced collie owner to understand his needs
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, some 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.
