Wenzel is a greyhound type crossbreed of around fifteen months old.

Wenzel was bright to the UK from a shelter in Romania as a puppy. Unfortunately he didn’t receive good training needed at a young age to make him a well mannered adult and has been handed into our care simply for, very fixable, unruly behaviour.

Wenzel is a super affectionate and enthusiastic boy who loves everybody he meets. He responds instantly to an authoritative voice and in the correct home he will be such a great companion! Wenzel will jump up and scratch people in his enthusiasm to be loved. He is a smart boy and can determine who will allow him to do this and who will not and as such will need everyone in the household to be following the same rules and commands. If allowed he will pull on the lead during walks, but can walk to heal perfectly well if made to.

Wenzel gets on well with the other dogs in his foster home but plays quite roughly and any dog in his new household will need to be able to match him. He can also get a little carried away and we use the good old fashioned “it’ll end in tears” theory to distract him when games get too rough.

In summary Wenzel is a high energy dog that needs space, exercise, stimulation and above all training! He has the basic temperament of an absolute star but has just lacked the guidance and leadership needed to channel his energy and intelligence into positive behaviours. He’s also extremely comical and more fun than you could ever imagine a dog to be!

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).
