Baz is a five to six year old medium to large crossbreed.
Baz was brought to the UK a few months ago by another rescue but slipped out the door of his foster home and was on the run for two months before being caught be a professional trapping team. He has now been in our care for a YEAR and has never looked to escape once bonded with his humans but great care will need to be taken when first moved.
Baz is a completely different dog to that nervous character that arrived a year ago. He wasn’t ready to be put in an inexperienced home back then straight from street life. He is now rehabilitated and loving home and family life.
Baz is now a confidant, playful and happy boy who we take to crowded coffee mornings and he loves all the attention he gets. Not only is he one of the most handsome dogs we’ve ever seen but he’s also beautiful on the inside. Baz is affectionate and once bonded is a devoted companion. We would not consider a home without another dog so please do not apply if you don’t have one. Baz is not tested with cats and is not able to so cats are unfortunately not an option.
Baz currently lives with children and is fine with them but they need to be dog savvy and at least ten years old. Baz travels well in a car and is fine to be left at home for reasonable periods of time with a dog friend.
This stunning boy has huge potential and parting with him won’t be easy, but he deserves the very best of homes. He’s resilient, stubborn, fun and affectionate in equal measures and the right family will be so lucky to adopt him.
Baz fostered Norwich Norfolk.

Our adoption fee is £300, 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).
