Oclan is a small to medium sized crossbreed aged around seven years old. Oclan was rescued from the Lancram public shelter in Romania. He is now in a UK foster home and progressing very well and gaining confidence every day. Oclan is a very sensitive and gentle boy who enjoys the quiet life. He is noise reactive and will get a little stressed in rowdy situations though so will need further socialisation. This has improved over the time he has been in his foster home, but we feel he will potentially always be affected by this. We are looking for a very patient and experienced adopter who will continue the work we have started in rebuilding his confidence. Oclan absolutely loves his walks and will be enthusiastic when setting out however he can be unsettled by unexpected noises so walking in a quieter environment would benefit him. Oclan is happy to interact with respectful children aged ten plus and enjoys cuddles on the sofa every evening. He mixes well with other dogs and would benefit from a calm, confident resident dog however this isn’t absolutely essential if he has human company throughout the day.
Oclan fostered North Walsham, 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).
