MADRA @lloislanel 🥰

* In Foster * Working in rescue is a constant rollercoaster of highs and lows. Recently our boy Goldie went on a trial adoption after 415 days in our care. We desperately hoped his waiting was finally over for good. Very sadly his new home didn’t work out and he is back at our shelter. He took a serious dislike to the neighbour’s cat walking along his boundary wall so instead of Goldie being tormented indefinitely and the possibility of the cat using up its 9 lives, his new family, understandably, decided they had to return Goldie... 415 days...Over a year. That's how long Goldie has been in our care. He has spent the majority of that time waiting at our shelter. He has had two foster homes to give him breaks fom our shelter as he is so painfully stressed out living with us and it's not doing his psychological state much good moving back and forth. Goldie is a three year old ultra charismatic Pitbull Labrador mix whom we all love dearly. The good stuff: 1) He really loves to play outside and if you have a secure garden for him to gallop around in, he will be a very happy boy, 2) He is also a very affectionate boy who would like to hang out with you on the couch. Goldie is a very, very clever chap and he responds really well to positive reinforcement training. 3) He loves his toys and treat filled Kongs and Kong Wobbler. 4) He has quite a few different cues and is just waiting for someone to teach him much more. 5) He is crate trained and muzzle trained. Goldie is really a very sweet lad who needs a patient and understanding person to allow him the time he needs to get comfortable in a new home. Things he needs: a) He will need a home where someone will he commited to help him with his training, b) He has some dog friends but he isn't always comfortable meeting new dogs out and about, so a rural location with a very secure garden would be ideal for him. He can be quite reactive so having someone who is willing to work alongside a positive reinforcement dog trainer is essential to help manage his fears, c) Goldie needs a cat free home. Once he finds a suitable home, we know he will make the greatest companion. He has been waiting so long already. Has anyone a spot in their heart and home for this special boy? If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill in an adoption questionnaire and a member of the rehoming team will be in contact. Once we've had a chat an appointment can be made to meet the dog.
