Our stunning mutley has been in kennels a while bless him, he has had no luck with his search for a foster 💔
he is seeking a pet and child free foster home that is experienced with large breeds.
We are happy to consider homes from across the uk if the applicant is the right fit.
Mutley has no impulse control, he will need a patient, kind, but firm handler that will work with him and teach him the "correct" way to behave.
Mutley was originally from the pound where he had served his statuary time and was facing euthanasia, His eyes screamed for help! He is only a young boy and he so deserves more than kennels!
He does have issues... he is bouncy, he is boisterous and he is big, however he is full of love! He basically thinks he is a puppy and behaves as such...
He will mouth when excited and lead climb if he isn't kept under control, We would like mutley to be muzzle trained so he can be muzzled when he is out, this is due to the fact he is mouthy, it would be much better for him if he was muzzled.
We are more than happy to have a behaviourist come and work with mutley in a foster home but without a foster home a behaviourist is no good as he isn't getting the stimulation and time spent with him that he desperately needs in kennels.
He is DESPERATE for a chance to thrive in a home, whilst he is ok in kennels he isn't thriving and he isn't learning!
If you feel you could offer a foster home for mutley please complete our application form by clicking the tab below!
Phil has been with us for a while now as we have been treating him and working to get a clear fecal.
Phil is now ready and waiting for his forever home.
Phil is between 5-6 years old and is a beautiful bright healthy bearded dragon.
His foster home have described him as a dragon that is full of life and character, He loves his bugs and will sit and demand them at the door of his enclosure, He has a cheeky personality and would love to find his forever home.
He is currently in foster in Preston, Lancashire.
We would be happy to arrange transport to the perfect forever home for Phil, The adopter would be expected to cover fuel costs as well as the usual adoption donation
A home check would need to be completed first for ensure the enclosure and setup is correct.
He will require a 4x2x2ft minimum enclosure along with all the fittings, We do NOT supply enclosures etc as we need ours for the next animal that comes in.
