Over the years we have owned a large variety of dogs, fifteen in all, with our favourites being Lurchers and Terriers. Such lovely dogs but a hunting combination to beat all others! We live in the country and often suddenly come upon deer which would involve a long chase for the dogs and a long wait for me! They always returned tongues lolling and so happy, but I would be very anxious, worried and often freezing cold! In fact all those hours of waiting probably caused my grey hair!

I decided that the next dog we adopted must not be a hunter and when a Staffie called Rae was being fostered and sounded lovely, I couldn’t recall the breed having a strong prey drive so went to see her. Of course, she came home with me to meet an elderly Lurcher and a Terrier. She came in and tore round the house, upstairs and downstairs, like something possessed, whilst the other two looked on in amazement! After this initial display of Staffie exuberance, she quietened down and fitted in immediately accepting straight away that Bailey was in charge. We renamed her Kay.

My friend complains how I constantly eulogise about Kay’s qualities but she really is the best dog I have ever had. She’s funny, affectionate, sensitive and above all extremely loyal. She behaves excellently with other dogs and is always ready for a game and is very respectful with older dogs. She likes swimming and loves nothing more than racing with a like-minded dog across the lakes on our walks. During this summer’s hot weather, Kay often stands in our garden pond, dipping her head under the water only to surface draped in lily leaves and pond weed!

Kay is so well behaved in the house and if the doorbell rings, there is no mad barking but she calmly goes to the door with me to see who is there. She loves people and is a firm favourite with our postman and delivery drivers. There is no panic to keep doors or gates closed because she wouldn’t dream of going out on her own.

She really is the perfect dog and I am so disappointed that it has taken so many years to discover what a beautiful breed Staffies are and so I would always suggest to prospective owners that they consider adopting one.

This lucky chap was re-homed just before lockdown in March and he’s really fallen on his feet. He lives in a cottage in the woods and his new owners say: “he is very obedient, walks off the lead and loves watching the deer. Friendly to all EXCEPT other dogs….” Lucky you don’t walk in a crowded park every day, Bobby.

If your Sussex Pet Rescue dog would like to share Christmas wishes, please send a photo and write up to info@sussexpetrescue.org.

 

 

 

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a better 2021!

We are delighted to report that now lockdown measures are easing, we have been able to re-home the dogs from foster homes in which people showed an interest before lockdown.  This leaves us with space in foster homes to accommodate dogs looking for a new home. We have had numerous enquiries about accepting dogs for re-homing during the last few weeks but sadly had to turn them away.

When we have dogs available for re-homing they will appear on the website and Facebook page as soon as they have been assessed.  Please keep an eye out and ring the number given if you think you can offer the dog a forever home.

Thank you for continuing to follow Sussex Pet Rescue and although we haven’t been re-homing for the last few weeks, we have been very busy helping applicants with veterinary costs throughout this time.

If you are in the unfortunate position of looking for a new home for your dog, please ring Jan on 01403 864742 or Helen on 01444 400371.  Thank you.

Here’s hoping that easing of the Covid advice has allowed many of our followers the chance to reunite with family and pets who have been missing each other for so long, and maybe to start thinking about summer holidays.

We’re sorry we haven’t been able to offer any dogs for re-homing for so long, however we have to take the health of our helpers and prospective new owners very seriously and we’re working on ways to begin carrying out home checks safely.

Thank you for continuing to support us during this extraordinary time, and please keep on checking our website because dogs will start appearing again soon.
