Need help, not diet related

I'm sorry this is not diet related but we have fallen in love with a beautiful rescue dog and there will be lots of people who want him, so I am asking you all please to send us good luck vibes, we have 3 spaniels, but he has stolen our hearts.

He’s beautiful, wishing you good luck, you obviously know your stuff with Spaniels.

I have 1 and have to say she’s enough to handle!

Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to lucigret

We have 3 and one more would fit in well and he so deserves a great home.

Our’s was the off spring of a rescue dog. Her parents were both so calm, not this one! What is it with the zig zag walking 🤣😂

Our dog before was a rescue dog as well. Keep thinking positive 😁

Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to lucigret

,We have one rescue, I just feel like he is so beautiful so many others will want him and as we have 3, we may be overlooked. One of ours walks in circles round us, which causes a few issues, but we manage,

I will be positive, thank you 😊

Oh he looks gorgeous Lorraine. All the fingers, toes and paws are crossed here for you. I think the fact that you are already spaniel owners will be a huge tick next to your name not get you passed over. Best of luck, he'd be a very lucky boy to live with you xx With spaniels, there's always room for one more 😂😂💖 xx

Thank you springersrule, we did say we wouldn't get any more but he just really got to me and as you say there's always room for one more xxx

Just a tip. The Rescue I am involved with prefer people who are smitten with the dog’s personality and character over looks.

Hoping you do manage to adopt the lovely boy though.

Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to MissisB

Thank you I know they try to match dogs to the right people, but thinking about it they do like the dogs to go to members of the fundraising group I belong to, so maybe we are in with a chance. I don't know how many others have applied though.

It can be a bit of a maze at first but come here as often as you can and keep heading back to the Pinned Posts and it will fall into place.

I should have mentioned, in case you're using the app, it doesn't reach all parts so you're better getting rid of it and using the browser to access the website :)

Everything crossed for you. Good luck on hopefully achieving your wish. Can tell he will be one lucky dog if you are chosen to be his mummy, and I so wish there were more people on this earth so caring to our animal population. 🤞

Thank you, it's heart-breaking seeing all their sad little faces, I would help them all if I could. We do what we can with donations and fundraising, but it's never enough.

Wishing you guys the best of luck for an addition to the family. I was watching dog house yesterday with dinner so hard to resist getting a dog x

Loraine518
Loraine5182st 7lbs

Just a quick update, he has now arrived in the UK and is apparently very gentle and just wants love.My application has been received and Joan from the rescue is going to call me tomorrow, so we are definitely in with a chance.

It probably helps that she is a member of my fundraising group and has seen loads of pictures of my dogs having fun, but I will still need to have a home check.

Not sure exactly what breed he is as he has a back up package with Labrador rescue, so he may be a spaniel lab cross, which is fine by us, as he is gorgeous.

I don't know how long he has to stay in kennels, but imagine it will be a while before he can actually come to his new home.

Thank you all for your lovely replies, I will update you when I know more xxx

Looks like all the positive messages and support did the trick, Boris will be coming to live with us and we can collect him next week.😁 Thank you so much everyone xx

That's fantastic Loraine. I'm so pleased for you and Boris. I'm sure the others will be fine with him. Well done and congratulations xx

Loraine518
Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to springersrule

Thank you, I can't believe how quickly it's happened, it's great that we are both off work next week as its about a 4 hour drive each way to pick him up.

I thought we would have to have a home check and it would take several weeks, but she phoned today and is sending his adoption documents and we will pay the donation and collect him next Tuesday.

Ziggy will be fine and probably Merlin, Blue-Moon can be a little bit possessive, but will I'm sure be fine. They are used to my daughters pug staying regularly. xx

springersrule
springersrule57kg in reply to Loraine518

Oh that is perfect timing, not just for picking him up but for him settling in too.

I'm sure there wont be more than a few muttering under the breath off Blue-Moon. My Mr Pringle likes to mutter at others just to let them know i'm his mum but its very quiet and very brief lol xx

Loraine518
Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to springersrule

I know it couldn't have worked out better really and I'm sure him and Blue-Moon and Merlin will all become great friends. xx

I was just wondering if there was any news, I'm thrilled for you and Boris. Hope all goes well with settling him in.

Loraine518
Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to lucigret

Thank you, it helps that I work mostly from home at the moment, I'm expecting a few little teething problems initially, but sure it will all work out.😀

lucigret
lucigretAdministrator in reply to Loraine518

From your photo, it looks as though he is used to be being around other dogs, so that will help. I wonder what happened to his friend, I hope he/she has found a forever home as well.

Loraine518
Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to lucigret

He is used to other dogs, just not sure about cats yet.

There were 4 dogs altogether, the one with him who has a new home, and her brother and sister, who are looking for new homes. I'm sure they will get lovely new homes soon as they are all gorgeous x
