He would love another chance, but away from small furries! Click here to view a video of Harry on YouTube.

Small Furries

Someone once told me that for every 100 ex racing greyhounds, 10 will settle happily with a cat without batting an eyelid, 10 will never be able to live with a cat and the rest are somewhere in between – it will depend on the dog, the cat and the amount of training an owner is willing to do. It’s a pretty good rule of thumb – the only problem is deciding which dogs fit into which category! Obviously the calmer ones are the first choice, but we never know for sure until they have met the cat or small dog in question.

If you have a cat we will introduce you to the dogs we think are most likely to settle with a cat. We will then bring the dog with us when we do your home check. That makes the process more individual – we need to know how the dog gets on with your cat, not someone else’s. With other dogs the process is similar but we’d ask you to bring your dog to the kennels, or meet up somewhere to introduce them.

Needless to say, our dogs will be on lead and safely muzzled during this process!

Sometimes on our dog descriptions you will see that we mention they are not suitable for homing with small furries. This just means that they’ve been through the above process and had a strong reaction. It doesn’t make any difference to their general suitability as a pet.

“Returned Through No Fault of His/Her Own”

One of our volunteers recently asked why we don’t expand on this in our descriptions. Although most of re-homings are successful, occasionally dogs are returned to us. There are a variety of reasons for this – illness, bereavement, family breakup, general change in life circumstances. Sometimes people haven’t researched the breed, or they haven’t thought through all that owning a dog entails. Very occasionally there are behavioural difficulties which the owner is unable to overcome. We don’t think it is fair to previous owners to go into details on a public website but we will always be happy to discuss the reason for a dog’s return with you on a one to one basis.

“Unsuitable For Homing With Children Under The Age Of….”

Our homing policies are flexible and we have no age limit at either end of the scale, although if you have new born twins and a lively toddler we’d probably suggest waiting for a couple of years! If the phrase above appears in one of the descriptions it’s usually because the dog is big and boisterous and could inadvertently hurt or scare a young child while playing. We are flexible on this – if it says “under the age of 8” and you have a confident 6/7 year old who’s used to large dogs then there shouldn’t be a problem. Occasionally we have a very shy or nervous dog who wouldn’t be happy in a household with young children.
