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

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.

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.

Sebby was understandably a little reticent today as he has left his family and he appeared on a journey he knew not where. After a vet check and 1st vaccination John passed him into the care of our vets until I was able to take him. We went to my favourite wood and had a long walk. He enjoyed the walk..wasn't keen on the 'sit command' but then who was I?! Sebby was keen on the scotch egg though.
Here Sebby is on 'entry to Rescue' walk.

I took Sebby out for a walk today, he was a bit nervous with loud noises and when we passed people but seemed to really enjoy his walk and exploring the woods. After the walk he was a bit less nervous and was happy to sit and have a little cuddle and some sausages. thumbs.gif

Was greeted with a cuddle from sebby this morning! He was a little nervous heading up the hill, but relaxed into the walk as we hit the fields. Was as good as gold, but as Lis said gets a little nervous when we passed people. However towards the end of the walk I got a few jumps out of him when she saw a pack of dogs on the path and a very waggy tail, and even tried to approach a ambull and staffie (who turned out to be a little grouchie!)

Hopefully his stay will be short! But, I hope he learns to relax a little in a new environment. He's a clever boy and loves a cuddle.

(Will add a pic soon)

Sebby had a great break with Andy's family for 3 days. Sebby went in withdrawn and remote and came out very relaxed and had wonderful walks and play sessions. Sebby has had kennel cough so he went to our vet and was placed on antibiotics. A long day in a warm dog mobile. We stopped off for a cat test which showed Sebby to be 'cat blind' He saw them but look straight through them like he did with the chickens.

I've walked Sebby a few times now and his confidence is definitely growing, he's always happy to see you and loves being out walking and exploring. He always meets other dogs well, we came across about 7 or 8 off lead dogs, some of them were quite excited and Sebby looked a bit nervous, he did back away a bit but never showed any aggression. They were all friendly so he let them all sniff him and then we went on our way. Sebby is an easy dog to walk, very calm, he doesn't pull on the lead and looks back every now and then to check on you. I don't think he's very happy in the kennels, he could do with a sofa and lots of love and security. love4.gif

I met and walked Sebby today and wow! What a dream! Any collie fan couldn't help but instantly fall in love with this gentleman.
We had a lovely relaxed walk with lots of sniffing and exploring together. He was very happy to pass both people and dogs and very much enjoys cuddles and fuss. All this wonderful boy needs is a loving, consistent home and a warm sofa to curl up on!

While Sebby was in Chessington, soon after he had arrived, I had the pleasure of taking him out over lunch a few times, and what a nice gently soul he is outside. He is very calm, even when approached by several off lead dogs all at once, greats them nicely with a friendly tail wag and sniff, then carries on calmly. He is undeterred by joggers, perhaps a little nervous when a bicycle comes suddenly round the corner, but no sign at all of an adverse reaction other than perhaps stepping aside to get out of their way. He did not react at all to the horses in the field, even when one came over to the fence to take a good look at us.
He seemed to enjoy being outside, had a good sniff around, did not pull on the lead at all. Once in a while he turned around to check I was still there.
I am very happy for him that he is now with some doggie friends in Broxbourne, but I shall miss our lunchtime walks in Chessington.
Here are a few photos from end of last year in the sun - doesn't he have a wonderful smile?
