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.

We just have one boy in the pound at the moment. A wee Staffie - dinky proper type staff. Strongly suspect the "finder" was the owner due to some of his comments - including how he wasn't allowed dogs in his flat so believe that's why handed in. He said he had nicknamed the dog "Budds" and he responds to it so am assuming that is actually his name.
NEUTERED male, about 18-24 months. Very handsome young man, photos don't' do him justice. Budds is very very friendly and biddable. A pocket rocket he likes to whiz around, loved the agility jumps and adores fuss and attention. Been very friendly towards all people, plays fetch etc, will work for food and toys but isn't possessive over anything. Needs some training but isn't a complete thug.
That's the good side. On the negative side he has been reactive towards other dogs. However, we do feel it is something that could be worked with as he can be called away from them and so on. He's basically a gobby little toerag when walks past the other dogs. It's also something that wonder how much is in the kennel environment as he is hyped up there but my gut feeling is that he is under-socialised with other dogs and would need some desensitising. I do think very much that there is a very good chance of bringing him round otherwise I wouldn't be sharing him of course. He's such a nice little lad. Ax
Budds comes into Guildford Kenns this week
