Random is a medium sized crossbreed aged around two years old. Random came to us from the Botosani public shelter in Romania around a year ago. He was shut down and terrified back then and barely recognisable from the mischievous and comical character he is today. When I named Random I had no idea how well suited he would be to the title. From his weird and crazy coat to his quirky behaviour he is indeed about as random as a dog gets, but he’s absolutely fab with it! Random loves his humans but in his own random way. He’s always close by, always ready to have fun or will sit companionably close during rest times. Once on a lead I can fuss him, cuddle him, cut his ever unruly fringe and anything else I want but currently when the lead isn’t on he will stay just out of reach. He acts like hands are made of hot coals, he’s curious and he will dance around them but he’s not yet ready to ask to be stroked. When on lead he’s so relaxed being stroked that he will actually fall asleep….. weirdo. Random will need another confident dog to be quirky with in his forever home. He is used to children of nine plus in his current foster home and doesn’t pay much attention to them but will take treats from them very gently. Random is certainly not suitable for any first time dog owner but for anyone experienced with the journey of scared/shy/quirky dogs would really enjoy the ride with him!

Random 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).
