Benson was vaccinated as a puppy and kept in the garden shed sleeping on a wooden pallet with a scrap of old carpet on topn. Fed in 3 cans for dog food 2x a day. Fine with the children, very friendly and loving boy. In original home he was in with children aged 1, 4 8 11 and 15.. Never met dogs, never walked. Given into Rescue at 2 years of age. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Will be neutered; chipped and vaccinations in progress. Benson is currently in our Chessington Kenns.
Benson was homed for a week and after a couple of accidents became house trained and respected his home. He lost his home as his dog skills were too novice
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.
