Buster's Story : Found stray/abandoned as an 8 month pup in Summer 2016 & unclaimed within a council pound: Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Buster is neutered; chipped and fully vaccinated. Buster is just settling in Gatwick Boarding kennels

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 Buster'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.

Buster'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. 21..11.16: Hi Lynne, I know you don't know me but a couple of people have advised I contact you about a dog that I have been struggling with for months and I'm now running out of options for him

I run a well established rescue. I first started helping this pound when they kept rehoming dogs with no checks for £30 its not in a good area lancs and so many of these dogs ended up worse off and we had to step in to help. Since Ive been pound pulling for them I have got every dog out most into and their rehoming has stopped. The pound kennels are due to be under going major improvement work starting in January and I have a special boy that will have nowhere to go once this work starts.

Buster has been with us since June 16, he came in screaming on a pole at just 8 months old God only knows what this pup had been through but he was a scared, very wreck. The wardens wanted him pts on day 8 but by day 5 he was coming round and I so wanted to give him a chance and luckily the kennel owner backed me.

Buster wasn't easy, he's been the hardest dog we've had, he found is so hard to trust anyone but slowly he started to show us his true lovable puppy side. Buster is now bombproof with people he knows and a lovely comical boy. I even took him to the vets for vaccinations and he coped unbelievably well.

A Rescue offered to take several of our dogs and Buster was one of them, I fully explained what he came in like and they seemed unfazed. Less than 24hrs later I got a phone call to say they wanted to put him to sleep as he was flying at them all in his kennel. I told them I was coming to collect him and they advised against it saying he was dangerous. I could hear him before I saw him, 7 people standing at the kennel front and Buster in full self protection mode I shouted his name and instantly he calmed down, I got a lead on him and brought him back where he's been ever since.

I beat myself up daily about this boy, he has some problems, I know to move him is going to put him into total meltdown again. He's a baby and I just know in the right hands he'll get there, he loves us all so much as we do him, but he just can't stay here much longer. He feel so happy and safe here we moved him so he got a lot of traffic passed his kennel and he's no longer reactive to strangers, he looks to people for a treat......But away his comfort zone I don't know how he is going to be.

I just need to know he's going somewhere that will give him time to show his true self, We can keep him until mid January I just need to know he has somewhere to go by then obviously he's not a dog we can send to emergency boarding.

Sorry for going on so much I just wanted you to understand him a little. Thanks for reading. Paula x

Buster comes on the 24th Jan 17

Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them and filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had! :icon_barking_dog-116.gif:

Buster arrived today after a 6 and a half hour journey with Chris his guardian angel. I was honoured to get a really lovely greeting as he emerged from the van. I think before he fully realised he had just entered a complete different part of his world! We went through to the paddock whilst Pip prepared a lovely big kennel for him with easy access to the paddock. We completed his chip details and he has a new collar with our disc on and he soon got over his nerves when I returned to meet him. Buster does a little fear grumble at his door but if he gets a warm greeting and not too much time to think about it, soon receives his visitors by gaining courage and showing a curiosity and need to meet and greet. Buster is positively affected by the welcoming of the voice also.

I'm sure Buster will do really well and make lots of friends over the next few weeks.

Buster is doing really well with the change of accommodation :newhere.gif:
Despite his nerves he was happy for me to join him in his kennel but was not that comfortable with my suggestion of harness or lead so we reverted to Plan B & spent some time in the paddock - he had fun showing off his lurcher ancestry :dog_running-186.gif:
