Found stray/abandoned & unclaimed within a Welsh council pound in Aug 2010: Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Gwilym is neutered; chipped and fully vaccinated. Summary of homing requirements:
Gwilym came to us 6 years ago and went straight into foster with a terrier. Gwilym was homed and lived adjacent to/ with another Collie. Sadly Princess the Collie, who was also a Rescue Remedies dog died of old age, several years ago. Since then Gwilym and his family have moved and Gwilym has been a bit 'groucho' with some dogs outside if he felt blustered. Gwilym would also run to the front door and his owner managed him by pulling his collar, despite advice to control access to the door: 50:50 as Gwilym is quite assertive and he does message well. Gwilym needs a family who respects and helps him to relax and defer to his owners. Gwilym loves treats and could be easily treat trained!
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.
