Mickey is a four year old Lurcher type crossbreed. Mickey originally come to us in September 2022 from another rescue in the UK that was sadly closing down, he was originally from Spain. He was adopted shortly after arriving in our care but has recently been returned because he wasnt getting on with one of the cats in the household and has become protective of the woman in the household. Mickey is a lanky legged, comical buffoon. He needs space to be a wally and a good level of exercise and mental stimulation. He will need firm rules and boundaries to not be protective in his next, and hopefully forever, home. He’s not the brightest bulb in the box but he is super loving and affectionate. What he lacks in brain cells he compensates for with heart . Mickey could live as an only dog but another boisterous dog to play with would keep him entertained. Mickey needs a cat and child free free home. Mickey is a great character and brilliant companion but will need an experienced adopter.

Mickey fostered Norwich 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).
