Making a difference... One dog at a time



MALE – 2 Years old

– in rescue in Shrewsbury

Say hello to 2 yr old Buddy. He was signed over from a family home and is quite an anxious, nervous boy who is very worried around new people but give him time to realise you mean no harm, and if you have treats to offer, he will soon come round – however, any family would need to be prepared to allow him to do this in his own time and not ask too much of him too soon.

For that reason we are seeking an experienced Dalmatian home with him as the only pet and no young children who could startle him.He would therefore be best suited to an adult only home where it is relatively quiet and calm and he can regain his confidence and become the dog he deserves to be after his bad start.

Those who know the breed will understand their intelligence and stamina levels and will be prepared to give this boy the active, interesting life he deserves once he has regained confidence and is more self assured. As you can see, once he trusts you he has no issues at all, and is happy to have you in his personal space – but please do be aware you will need to be prepared to visit him a few times to establish that trust and the relationship he needs – please check the geography and ensure you are able and prepared to do so.

He is in rescue kennels in Shrewsbury at the moment and today he met a group of new people for the first time with our Christmas Day for the dogs – he was a little hesitant at first but was soon taking treats from people, not confident enough for cuddles yet but he is getting there! A lovely dog who is friendly and happy once he trusts and knows you – that’s all it takes.

Further update:- Now January and Buddy has developed even further in confidence and is much more relaxed now – still not where he needs to be but this excellent progress proves that in the right environment, with the right people, Buddy will come on in leaps and bounds.
