More about me ..... 
I am currently in a lovely foster home, here's what his foster dad Sam has to say about him. 

Harold has had a great first few days. A lot of walking and meeting people/pets, some good bonding time, and basic obedience. He’s respecting boundaries, not jumping up, and relaxing very well in his new home. Today we’re going out again, perhaps around the Park! Next week I’ll be getting him a long lead so we can work on recall and play fetch. hes such a good boy. 

What I need …
The rescue are still getting to know me. I will be in foster for a few week to get my vet work done. 
 
​I need to be an only dog in the home.  An owner with  bullbreed experience and I would love my own garden
sorry No kids or cats  x

Rico came to us as an owner surrender.
He was a much-loved family pet until the birth of a 2nd baby and his behaviour changed. He had lived with their other child with no issues but his owners saw how stressed he was and felt they needed to do what was right for him even if that meant giving him up. 

Rico came into our kennels ,  he was assessed over a period of  time , he showed us how loving and sweet he was but after a while he began to get really stressed in kennels. It was really sad to see how stressed out he was. We then found an experienced foster home for him to go to. 

From his foster mum -
Rico did really well in his foster home. He can be left for a few hours on his own, he  gets comfy on his chair and just sleeps. He loves playing with his toys, snuffle mat and kong and will leave them when asked to. He would walk by dogs to start with as he just ignored them, his foster mum adored him and saw how sweet, loving and loyal he is. He's very sooky and loved his cuddles. 

Rico bonds closely to his \family\, he is a very loving boy. He likes quiet walks where he can take his time sniffing about, exploring, he sleeps in the sitting room by himself without a peep. He has so much potential. 

His foster home was in the city centre and after a time Rico started to get really stressed again and be unhappy around dogs, he also started to show some unwanted behaviour such as growling at strangers, after doing this he would know it was wrong and get upset with himself and go away and hid,  this was so sad to see. 

He was also trigger stacking and found it really hard to relax and decompress he was not a happy boy,  it felt like he had the weight of the world on his wee shoulders. 

We realised he needed more help than we could give him and he really deserved a chance to be a happy boy again. 

A decision was made to get Rico some more help. We reached out to Ryan at Bankhouse Emergency Kennels And Rehabilitation.  These kennels work in-depth with dogs that show signs of dog aggression, resource guarding, fear or aggression.  Each dog has a programme tailored to their needs and once the dogs settle with them and start the restart process there smiles come back and they enjoy each and every step of there experience .

Rico has been with them for over a month now and had been doing really well. He has 4 - 5 different handlers who he works with everyday. He walks by dogs now with no issues at all. He is more relaxed and focused on his handlers, he really enjoys the rural location of the kennels. He is also being fed on a raw diet.  

Rico was starting to show some resource guarding issues. He is now getting  the help he needs, his training is being carried out safely and securely by professionals. 
We have no doubt that magic will be worked at Ryan's rehab kennels and Rico will overcome his fears.

Rico will be in this program as long as he needs to be. He will be following a programme when he leaves kennels and will need a specific type of home. 
This will be a foster home with Support  to start with. Adult only homeMust be the only Pet  Must have Bullbreed experience Must live in a semi-rural locationMust continue to feed him on a raw diet  Work closely with the kennels and the rescue with regards to Ricco's ongoing trainingMust be willing to travel to Leeds a few times to meet and bond with RicoKeep his training up when he is in a home, you will be provided with all the information and training plan you need to this . 
Rico can also be rehomed in and around the Leeds area as well as in Scotland. 

We are getting weekly updates on how Rico is doing we will update as we know more about his training and rehabilitation.

Size - medium
Dogs  -  under assessment 
Kids -   Teens 
Cats - No 

History....   Owner surrender, I used to live with my mum but we got into a fight over a bone,  my owner couldn't keep us apart, a vet suggested that I was \put to sleep\ then this rescue saw my story and saved me.  

More about me ….. I am now in a lovely foster home.  I am a bit stressed at the moment but hopefully in time I will feel better.  They say I an a strong boy who is very giddy and super sweet.  I haven't been outside much so its a bit strange for me at 1st, I really love my walks . I get stressed being on my own but I heard them say that they will help me with this and in time I will be able to get my very own family. 

From my foster mum 
He is all love and the sweetest thing, he is quite low energy (snoozes a lot and just wants belly rubs!) but he is a big boy and can be quite strong on the lead. He will get there with lots of love and patients. 

What I need...….
I will need to be the only dog in the home at the moment . I haven't lived with children but I could live with  teenagers. I really love my humans and my walks.

Age

3 years old

Name - Bruno
Age - 3 years old 
Size - Medium
Sex - Male  
Dogs  - walks with other dogs outside but will bark at some as well 
Kids -  no, teens or older 
Cats - lives with cats but does chase them 
 
​History....
owner surrender through ill health 

When I first  arrived in rescue......
Bruno is in his home until a foster/new home can be found 

What I need …
Bruno needs an experienced bullbreed home that is pet and child free. He is a sweet boy but has been possessive in the past of his toys. 
He is walked during the day by a dog walker and walks with other dogs. Bruno does however bark at dogs when on the lead and out walking. 
He is fine being left on his own for a few hours, can get car sick so does not travel well. He is a much loved pet and his family only want the best for him. 

Bruno loves learning and will need an owner that will work with him with +R training ​. 

Positive Reinforcement: +R = Adding anything good that your dog will work for. Good =Treats, praise, toys, smelling. Goal to increase a behavior.
