Joker is a small to medium sized crossbreed aged around three years old. Joker has come into our care recently from the Botosani public shelter in Romania. When we visited the shelter back in October he was pointed out to us by Daniel who is a volunteer carer there. Daniel is one of very few people who work tirelessly 365 days a year for the Botosani dogs and when he pointed out his two favourites and pleaded for them to get a chance in the UK we definitely were not going to refuse him. Joker arrived in the UK a few weeks later and is now ready for adoption. Joker mixes with other dogs and needs a confident dog to show him the ropes in his new home too! Joker is initially wary of new people but once he learns to trust you he is comical, playful and very loving. Joker is now walking well on a lead but needs to gain experience out and about. Joker could live with respectful children aged twelve plus.

Joker fostered Brundall, Norfolk.

Adoption Policy

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).
