31-08-2023 Beattle is a gorgeous but timid boy who has come to us from a breeder to find his forever home. He is quite unsure of our intentions at the moment and can be quite frantic to pick up initially but when we go slowly he is ok to handle. Beattle was a very good boy to groom despite feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Beattle is looking for a calm adult only home to ensure he can have an environment he can thrive in and come out of his shell. He adores other dogs and will need a home with at least one confident resident dog that can help Beattle settle in and give comfort to. We are unsure if Beattle has lived in a home before so he will need understanding adopters that can help him learn new skills such as housetraining and walking on a harness/lead when he is ready. Beattle is such a sweet boy that needs an understanding loving home that can help him be the boy he's always been meant to be.

So Beattle has been with us for just over a month now and he is definitely making slow but steady progress. He’s a lot better at being handled now (even though he still doesn’t like it), but I don’t find him as jumpy or flighty to pick up anymore. You do still have to go slow with him, but he does cope okay. He’s also recently discovered his love for toys and his favourite thing now is to chew on a nylabone, or chase a ball in the yard with me. He still doesn’t know to bring it back yet, but we’re working on it!! Another firm favourite of his is food. He absolutely loves yummy treats and is more than happy to take them from my hand, so this is the main thing I’ve been using to try and earn his trust.
Beattle will still need a home with a resident dog as he is very reliant on his kennel friends. It will also help him massively in areas such as house training and lead walking. I haven’t started harness training with him yet as I don’t think he’s quite ready, but this is something his new owners will need to think about. They’ll have to take it very slow with him and practice just in the house and the garden for a while, until his confidence improves enough to take on the outside world.
This lovely boy puts a smile on my face every day and I know he’ll become someone’s special man in time .. he just needs to be given a chance! So please don’t keep him waiting much longer.

While Beattle is still timid of you and will not approach you, he’s improved so much since being with us. It’s fantastic to see the fear he was filled with, slowly vanishing. Beatle is a ladies man as all the girls with him absolutely adore him and can’t stay away from him.
It is amazing to see his progression, but there’s more work to be done with Beattle, to fully bring him out of his shell, to learn to love and trust.

Beattle is continuing to make good progress and he’s now a very happy and waggy boy in himself.
He’s approaching me a lot more now and is very inquisitive, watching me going about my tasks.
He likes to give my fingers little kisses, and only very recently he has started to accept a tiny scratch under his chin. I still don’t think he’s sure, but a part of me thinks he is starting to enjoy it!!
Today I took him into the grooming room to give him a little spruce up. I gave him a brush and trimmed around his eyes and he was a superstar. I didn’t give him a bath as I thought I’d start with something little, but I think I will next time, as he was such a good boy.

Mr Beattle Man really is such a happy boy and it’s truly a pleasure to look after him. He finds joy in so many things here at the rescue, even though he doesn’t get much, and I think this makes him incredibly special. Anything food related, toys, new blankets, meeting new dogs .. he’s just always happy. I think he’ll absolutely love home living once he gets through his initial worries, and his adopters will be very lucky to have him.
This week I have taken things a step further with him and fitted him up with a harness. I haven’t taken him out yet, as I want to take the whole process very slow and go at his pace. Putting the harness on and taking it off every day for a little while is the first step! He wasn’t sure at first, but he was still accepting of it, bless him. I’ll keep you all updated on our progress!

Beattle has been with us in foster for a week now and he's doing really well. He is almost house trained and he gets on well with all our other dogs. He is a little hand shy but does come to you for a sniff and will take treats from your hand. He loves to cuddle up with the other dogs and sometimes will let you give him a little stroke, other times he will run away but does return and settle back down. Beattle does not walk on a lead yet but now we've let him settle in a little we will start to work with him on this. He does play with the other dogs now and again and has also started to play with some toys. He really is a special little guy who will be an amazing little man once he comes out of his shell and starts to enjoy being around people.

Beattle is still a little hand shy but is such a little character he loves to follow you everywhere to see what your up to. he does still forget sometimes when it comes to going potty and has the odd accident but he's really getting there. He has found his voice when it comes to waiting for his food. He doesn't like to be left alone and will bark when left but does calm down after a little time. Beattle doesn't walk on a lead yet this is being worked on. Beattle get on well with dogs of all sizes and he's also ok with cats.

Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

 If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.


Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
