Dobes at the end of the rainbow!
Born 14th May 2011 this lass had a very poor and rough start in life and unfortunately her second home cannot keep her. Living with a child, two staffies and a cat Pepsi is looking for quiet and understanding owners as she is nervous of strangers and needs slow calm introductions whether it be with people or other dogs. Vaccinations are up-to-date. More information in due course. To register an interest call (01346) 532227.
Handsome, old fashioned, solid, black and tan male, docked and neutered, 8 years old with up-to-date vaccinations and microchipped. Superb around the home, very friendly, affectionate and obedient and walks well on the lead.
- Loves to sun himself in the garden
- Enjoys playing
- Affectionate, kind and wise companion who loves human company
Being rehomed as elderly owner was unable to give sufficient time and exercise hence he was a little portly when arriving at his foster home but now he is one fit boy. Kinti was living with another male and a Staffie X bitch and he enjoyed playing with her.
It is not known whether Kinti has lived with children therefore he will not be placed with a young family. He strongly dislikes cats, but enjoys car trips and can be left in the home for a sensible period of time. Vet check on 23 October revealed that this dog is generally in very good health.
Kinti will make a lovely, loyal companion for the right owner. For some reason he is a magnet for aggressive small dogs which not surprisingly he does not appreciate otherwise we cannot fault the dog. Currently being fostered in the north west of England you can find out more about Kinti on his blog. Latest blog 28 April. Enquiries in the first instance to Pam on (01346) 532227.
Sweet Lola is an isabella bitch and six years old. She has been bred from twice and needs to get her figure back, currently receiving little or no exercise and is being rehomed because owner cannot walk her. Lola has been well trained and loves to play but is very nervous around strangers. Once she gets her confidence she will be a great pet, not suitable for a family with toddlers she has plenty of pluses, travels well in the car, can be left in the home, is not destructive and likes to play. Basic commands good and takes a treat gently and let our volunteer fuss her after they had been for a walk together. More information in due course, to register an interest call (01346) 532227.
Born 23 March 2009 an intelligent neutered male who urgently needs a new home where he will have company and stimulation. Bit of a country boy so he is not used to hustle and bustle or lead walking. Used to seeing livestock and other animals, lives with a family with two young children and a pug. Will make an excellent companion for someone willing to put in the work and channel his energies. Very affectionate, loyal dog. More information soon, please call (01346) 532227 to register an interest. Remember land line numbers only or call back please.
Kass is also our Featured Dog because its time he found his new home, fit and ready to go he’s been long enough in kennels. Have you got room and time for this big fella?

Up-date 2 April Ellie has lost more weight and is down to 56 kilos but alas her prognosis is poor and she will remain in FOND’s care for the rest of her days. Warmer weather meant Ellie enjoyed a nice bath and despite her poor mobility her spirits are high. She enjoys chaperoning the young males in kennels and takes their training and welfare very seriously.
Ellie is such a game girl and has endured so many problems. We know she had a kidney removed following a diagnosis of Hydro Nephrosis in her youth, however, it is not the loss of a kidney or the frequent urinary infections Ellie suffers from but her poor mobility due to wear and tear on her spine and joints having carried so much weight for too long that are our chief concern for her welfare. Ellie would welcome sponsorship towards her keep and veterinary costs.
High days and low days with our Ellie, she continues to lose weight which is good and loves life but her mobility at times is severely impaired by fatty tissue in her off hind hip and leg. Enjoying living with Kass she is due for another general check including her thyroid week commencing 29th April. See latest picture of Ellie with Big Kass her latest ‘toy boy’. Meanwhile Ellie is watching us all!
Behind the Scenes
Not every Dobe FOND has in for rehoming reaches the Dogs Needing Homes page. Some applicants having successfully completed the adoption process patiently wait for a Dobe compatible with their lifestyle and experience of the breed. Sometimes this can take months. Sadly it is often the case once a person has decided to rehome a dog, they want one immediately and if unable to find one through a rescue centre they might turn to the many websites that advertise dogs for sale or ‘free of charge’. Usually these dogs have little or no history or some terrible sob story to tug at the heart strings. Frequently, these rehomes have disastrous results and these websites just encourage the irresponsible to breed and traffic unfortunate dogs of all shapes and sizes resulting in rescue and rehoming centres all bursting at the seams. Consequently, many dogs of all breeds are being put to sleep never having the opportunity to experience a proper caring home. If you would like a dog please consider a rescue or rehome – and be prepared to wait for a dog that suits your lifestyle. Zera (now Willow), Ruby, Bailey, Phoenix are recent examples of Dobes rehomed to owners in waiting and now young Blue. Jasmine and Troy also went to their new homes in January. Caesar had a home waiting for him prior to being mentioned on the website.
Do Not Traffic Dogs on the Internet
Once I looked like this. Happy and healthy. I was loved by my family and I thought I was for life. But that seems old-fashioned now.
Through no fault of my own my family gave me up. They thought they had found me a nice new home over the internet.
It did not work out for me. It took just 3 short months for me to go to skin and bone after I changed hands 3 times over the internet. I am gentle and loving but it was all too much trouble to look after me or feed me.
I AM NOT ALONE. EVERYDAY DOGS ARE TRAFFICKED OVER THE INTERNET. I NEVER THOUGHT THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ME. I AM SAFE NOW BUT MANY ARE NOT.
