If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

20-08-22 Hector is a handome boy who has been returned from his home and is now looking once more for a loving home. His previous adopters worked very hard with socialisation and training, plus they had the support of a behaviourist to help manage Hector but when a change of personal circumstamces arose they felt they had no choice but to make the very difficult decision to give Hector back into our care.
Hector does have some issues that need continued and ongoing training with. He has some food guarding behaviours and when out of his confort zone , for example at the vets or if he is startled suddenly he can become unpredictable and is at risk of making the wrong decisions. He can get on very well with dogs under supervision and is also said to be fine with cats. His trainer and adpoters worked hard with giving games, physical exercise - which he loved and enjoyed a good 2hr run daily and in the home, with nothing to guard and a calm home he did exceptionally well and enjoys affection.
Hector needs an experienced, adult home who are aware of his struggles and are experienced and equipped to support him and help him make progress whilst keeping him safe. Due to his food and resource guarding he would be best placed as an only dog in the home where he will have the best chance to relax and enjoy life.

Today I took Hector the bocker out on the bike and what an absolute delight he is! Hector would go miles and miles is he had his way! Unfortunately Hector got returned into our care for resource guarding. what we say around here is he's a 'typical bocker'! He has not displayed any behaviour like this with us, but this doesn't mean he won't.
Hector is looking for an experienced home with someone who will stand by his side and help him with his problems. He's looking for a VERY active home where he can go on lots of new adventures and lots of new places! He's been here far to long now and it's about time he found his happy ending

Hector is a very smart boy who will need a family that can help stimulate him physically and mentally. He’s a very good boy and listens to what he’s told, he’s a very switched on dog. Hector loves going for walks and massively appreciates it when kennel staff are willing to go for a little run with him. Hector goes out to play with other dogs and really really enjoys himself but would probably thrive better as an only dog due to food guarding issues and the fact he does sometimes get a bit overly excited. This sweet man absolutely loves people and is a pleasure to work with and be around, he adores snuggling up to people and perching his paws on your lap as much as he loves chasing a ball and having a good run around. He also adores playing with the treat puzzle games at the rescue and is so smart he usually manages to find them all every time, a family that could continue to allow him to play games like these to stimulate his mind would be perfect!

Hector is a very handsome boy who has a lot of love to give! He’s a very smart boy who learns more and more as the weeks go by. Hector has worked with pro trainers on his food aggression/guarding and has made HUGE progress, he’s a very obedient young man which makes him very easy to work with. As long as any prospective adopter adheres to the training he's been having and implement it correctly then they should have zero problems with him.
Hector is a very bouncy boy and does have a cheeky side which is very funny and charming. He absolutely adores his toys and has even learnt to release a toy/object! We are all extremely proud of how far he’s come and would love to see him flourish into a beautiful companion in his new home.
Now that the weather’s gotten colder, Hector has also started to allow us to put jumpers on him although sometimes he will pull them off to play with. This angel is also very kennel clean so house training shouldn’t be too much trouble for him and given how smart he is he should learn quite quickly! Hector also walks on a lead but is quite strong when he’s excited so his new owner(s) will have to be aware of this.
He would likely prefer to be an only dog in his new home but does regularly go out to play with other dogs similar to him in the yard so he’d potentially be able to have visiting dogs. Hector also has a very soft side and loves a cuddle and some fuss, but will need an active, adult only home to keep him busy.
