Frankie is a three year old greyhound. Frankie originally me into our care from a UK pound after being handed in with no microchip and no owner came looking for him. He was soon adopted and had been in that home for a year but has had to come back to us due to a new baby in the household. Frankie is an absolutely beautiful boy inside and out and has the most beautiful eyes. He loves other dogs and loves his walks. He needs space to run in his new home as he can become a bit bouncy if he feels cooped up. Frankie travels well in a car and can be left alone for reasonable periods of time with no issues. Frankie can live as an only dog or with dog friends. Frankie is not good with cats. Frankie needs an adult home environment.
Frankie 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).
