Arthur is a medium sized crossbreed aged around 9 months old. Arthur came into our care recently from the Botosani Public shelter in Romania. He was one of a litter of pups we met during our trip in October. To be honest it was actually pitiful to watch him as every time all the dogs of the shelter barked all of the other pups in his pen would attack him and he would scream and run for cover in one of the rickety huts. There was nowhere to move him to as the shelter was full so all we could do was make him a promise that we would get him over on the first possible transport to the UK once we were home. Due to a lack of handling from humans and the bullying from his siblings and other pups in his pen, Arthur arrived very shy and lacking in confidence. This is now ancient history as being part of a large pack here has taught him well in his foster home! He is now a comical character in the pack with the mischievous streak that ALL carefree puppies should have. He loves to play with his friends and toys and when he’s tired himself out he will come and find a lap to curl up on. The quivering, bullied little pup that arrived all those weeks ago is long gone and the dog that’s emerged is just the best fun to be around. Arthur loves the company of other dogs and would like another playful dog in his forever home. He could live with respectful children aged ten plus…..but will steal their toys if the opportunity presents itself.
Arthur fostered Norwich Norfolk.

Our adoption fee is on average £350, dependant on the dog, they are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).
When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a slip lead. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and will not trust you, and you will not know which situations might upset your dog. If your dog panics, then a slip lead is the only way to prevent your dog from escaping (many dogs can escape from a collar and/or harness). It will take AT LEAST 3-6 months for your dog to settle-in and for you to know your dog fully (longer for nervous dogs). The slip lead must ALWAYS be used during this settling-in period.
Even after your dog is settled, it is safest to use the slip lead in situations where your dog may become scared (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the vet), and it situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a back-up safety measure.
The slip lead is a safety device and must NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the lead to apply pressure to the dog’s neck is damaging. If your dog pulls on the lead, then we can advise you on training methods that avoid harm.
Once your dog is settled, you may want to consider using a harness (together with the slip lead) if your dog is comfortable with being handled when it is fitted. Most harnesses are not escape-proof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer.
Retractable / extendable leads must never be used on our dogs.
Adopted dogs must be collected from the rescue and transported straight home in a crate.
Fences and gates must be 5ft min & secure. All dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).
