Animals in rehabilitation

Here we have Marshall 

Marshall was handed over to us when his previous owners began to struggle with his reactions and amount of drive as he got older 

Marshall has now hit 18 months and true to teenager traits he has been allowed to be boss and in turn is presenting with some aggressive behaviour. 

Marshall is going to stay with our rehabilitation centre until he finds better ways to deal with situations he may find stressful and greets strangers a little more nicely! 

He will then be looking for a home with breed experience- more to be disclosed upon further assessments. 

Harley is a Cane Corso bitch 

She is currently in rehab working on her stranger introductions. Very true to the breed Harley loved her family and protected them with her life but could be hit and miss with who she would allow into her home. She also struggled with passing traffic and bikes. 

Once we have a better idea of what her ideal future placement will be we will update the page accordingly.

Olive 

Olive came to us on her last chance

she is a tricky combination of high drive breeds and despite the families best attempts Olive couldn't cope with other animals or strangers and no longer was suitable or safe to live in their home environment 

Olive was nothing more than a nervous, insecure little dog who has come on leaps and bounds since being with us. 

Before she used to lunge at anyone outside of her circle, how she is easily handled by several kennel staff. Instead of greeting people with lunges she will wag her tail! This is a huge improvement for Olive 

She will always have a shyer side to her and is looking for a one person handler or a breed savvy couple with no children or other pets to offer her the placement she really deserves. 

This is Mela

Mela was handed over after a chap called us up who had their dog advertised on gumtree 

She was said to be an adult/child/dog friendly dog with no issues. 
Upon a volunteer attending the house and witnessing how harsh the owner was on Mela it comes with no surprise that when we got her back to the handlers home placement she began to show signs of fear aggression and feeling real lot uncomfortable inside the home 

We decided that as it was unlikely Mela has ever lived in a house due to her overall body state and smell that trying to force this on her whilst also trying to gain her trust was a step too far and we were overwhelming her more so we made the decision to move her to emergency boarding rescue specific kennels. 

She is making great progress, showing no signs of aggression and is slowly learning to trust again at her own pace. She will soon be looking for an adult only placement to continue her work in.
