Sunny is a medium to large sized crossbreed aged around nine to ten years old. Sunny has lived in the Botosani public shelter in Romania for the past four to five years. When we visited the shelter recently the state he was in was quite indescribable. His coat was so matted and heavy with filth and faeces we didn’t really know where to start to make him more comfortable with the limited resources that were available to us. All we could do there and then was to hack through the heaviest of the dreadlocks to at least make the mess a bit lighter for him to carry around. He is now in the UK and we finished the job to the best of our abilities. It’s not salon standard but he’s clean, got air to his skin and, trust me, he smells a whole lot better! Sunny is a dear old boy who simply wants a slow pace home for his twilight years. He asks for so little and is so grateful for everything he gets, he’s just extremely humbling. Sunny gets on well with other dogs but would also be perfectly happy as an only dog. He was unphased and uninterested when introduced to the safe rescue cat! Sunny would like a home with no children under twelve. He likes a short walk and a comfortable bed to chill out on. That’s it really, just a sweet old man looking for somewhere to relax his wary old head for his final years. Sunny has an eye missing which has been checked by the vet and needs no further medical attention.

Sunny fostered Norwich Norfolk.

It is with regret that from May 1st 2024 we will be raising our adoption donation from £350 to £380, dependant on the dog, they are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).

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).
