Hi I'm Sky, lovely to meet you. I came into ECR due to a change in family circumstances, I'm now looking for my forever home. I am an affectionate girl and love lots of fuss and attention, I'm at my happiest when I'm playing with all my toys! I moved into my foster home before Christmas and soon settled in on the sofa!

Sadly due to certain circumstances I didn't really go out for walks and have missed out on a lot of socialisation skills and everything outside is super exciting. Sky's foster mum Demelza Robinson has been working hard on the training front with Ciara Potter and Laura McAuliffe and Sky is currently a work in progress with walking but a cuddle monster in the house.

FOSTER UPDATE: Sky has settled in so well to fostering with us as a family, she's a joy to have around. She's well behaved in the house and loves a mooch in the garden now the weather is getting better. We have introduced some small steps of training to try to desensitise her to the outside world, this will take some time and dedication. Sky needs a pet free home, with older children as she is friendly but can be excitable and clumsy at times. Sky is very strong on the lead and needs ongoing training for lead work and desensitisation around other dogs as she is extremely anxious in their company and needs quiet walking areas, not suited to busy suburban parks and is enjoying the use of a freedom field for off lead running. Sky loves treats, toys and especially enjoys lots of cuddles and fuss on the sofa and is a lot calmer in the car now we are using a crate.

I'm a lovely bouncy girlie and am looking for a home where I'm the only dog, if you would like to offer my forever home please complete the rehoming questionnaire.

  •  Sex: Female
  • Colour: Tri Colour
  • Dog Friendly: Happy to walk with on lead dogs
  • Cat Friendly: No
  • Children: 16 years +
  • Weight: 19.6 kg

Hi I'm Sky, I'm a six year old beagle cross, I came into rescue as I was stuggling to cope in a hectic home. I used to be quite shy and timid but  whilst at HQ and enjoy a walk with all the volunteers and my most favourite person Steve!  I'm very affectionate once I'm relaxed and get to know you then I'll shower you in kisses. I'm an extreme foodie and an exchange is required, my recall is good unless there is something that sparks my interest!

I'm looking for an active home, ideally in a semi rural environment where I'm the only dog. I'm not used to being left for long periods, so would be suited to a home worker or someone that can take me out with them in the car etc. I will settle in a home on my own, but would need gentle introductions leading to a home visit and overnight stay. If you can be my perfect parent please fill out the rehoming questionnaire.

  •  Sex: Male
  • Colour: White with Brindle
  • Dog Friendly: Under assessment
  • Cat Friendly: No
  • Children: 18 years + 
  • Weight: 23.85 kg

Hey my name is Reggie and I ended up here at ECR under very sad circumstances and have no previous history. I was found abandoned overnight in woodland so I'm very scared of the wind now. I'm a friendly chap, liking lots of fuss but always seem to have a serious worried face, I'm rather anxious and hand shy at first with men but will love you once I trust you and really like cuddles with ladies. I have a couple of lumps and bumps that you would expect to find on an old boy like me, I've had a full MOT with Doggy doc David Bradbury and my first vaccine.

I I am quite worried with any form of restraint and sometimes touch, but do love attention and cuddles when I come to you for it. I love the garden and enjoy mooching about whilst the hoomans are working. I don't look for trouble with other onlead dogs and tend to mind my own business and ignore them. I am looking for my forever home, ideally an experienced adult only home, quiet with a routine. If you think you could adopt me please complete the rehoming questionnaire.

  •  Sex: Male
  • Colour: Tan
  • Dog Friendly: Boisterous, can get over excited
  • Cat Friendly: No

  • Weight: 51.2 kg

Hey my name is Chester, I'm a very friendly lad but I get scared easily. I'm currently working with our behaviourist, on building my confidence and trust in people. I like to have a routine and sometimes panic when things are scary and unknown, I get scared easily as I didn't experience much when I was younger and had some negative encounters. I get very anxious with new things that takes me out of my comfort zone, the lovely people at ECR think I may have OCD.

I am a very athletic boy and love to do zoomies round the garden and play with my toys. I love my licky mat and all the treats I get here at ECR. I need a gentle and patient adult home who will introduce new things gradually at my pace. If you think you could give me my forever home please complete a rehoming questionnaire.

Buddy

buddy 7
  • Breed: Patterdale Cross
  • Date of Birth: 01/07/2014
  •  Sex: Male
  • Colour: Black with White
  • Dog Friendly: Can be over enthusiastic
  • Cat Friendly: No
  • Children: 18 + 
  • Weight: 19.15 kg

Hello, my name is Buddy. I had a really poor start in life and I'm extremely nervous around new people and in new situations, once I know you I'm very affectionate and lovable. I'm a busy boy and need a fairly active home where there is lots going on.

I've been at HQ for eighteen months now and my confidence is coming on in leaps and bounds, although I'm still very wary of strange men. I enjoy the company of other dogs and could live with another well matched companion. My favourite hobby is sitting with you for cuddles and I'm more than happy to snuggle up on the sofa. All true terrier lovers will be smitten with me, my antics will make you smile! I currently have a strict routine and this has helped with my separation anxiety and I'm happy to chill in bed with a chew and I enjoy a good snooze in the morning and afternoon.

I love a good country walk and I'm used to a long line and will not be one that can be let off initially as I will pick up a scent and go, any off lead will need to be in a secure field. I would be more suited to a fairly active adult female home in a rural location as I would not benefit from suburban park walking and am better off in low density field and woodland areas. I'm still a work in progress and any transition to a new home will need to be done gradually, please give me a chance and complete a rehoming form.

  •  Sex: Male
  • Colour: Black with Tan and White
  • Dog Friendly: Under assessment
  • Cat Friendly: No
  • Children: 18 years + 
  • Weight: 17 kg

Hi there, my names Biscoff and I'm a real cheeky chap! I can get a little scared of quick hand movements but soon come out of my shell. I'm very nosey and get involved in eveything going on around me. If you love Terriers then your sure to love me! I also had a very bad start in life and need gentle introductions to new people, especially men.

I'm looking for an active adult experienced terrier home where theres always lots going on, I need to stay on a long line because I love to go off investigating, once my super nose picks up a scent I'm off! I'll also need to be muzzled when out on walks as I can be unpredictable with strange men. A rural home would be best and a lovely secure garden with at least a 6ft fence with gravel boards.

Hello my name is Roxy, pleased to meet you! I am a senior Stafford girlie and my chip says I'm eight but the lovely people here at ECR think I'm probably older than that. As you can see I like my food and am currently on a diet!

I'm currently in foster with the lovely Vicky, thank you for taking care of me. I do love my home comforts! I was assessed on Saturday and will be vaccinated next week. 

I am looking for a semi retirement home where there is somebody around most of the day. I am not a busy Stafford and would be happy with one short walk a day to try and burn some calories, I have previously lived with a cat but would prefer to be an only pet. Please consider me and complete a rehoming questionnaire.

  •  Sex: Male
  • Colour: Red Wire Coat
  • Dog Friendly: Reactive, working on a programme
  • Cat Friendly: No
  • Children: 18 years + 
  • Weight: 9 kg

Hi my name is Denis, I am a typical terrier or terrorist as I'm known by ECR. I am full of beans, extremely inquisitive, quite mouthy in play and do tend to get over excited! Having said that I am a very affectionate little man who loves fuss and cuddles.

I am quite a handful and as such ECR feel that I need an experienced terrier savvy home where they can control excitement thresholds and trigger points such as the front door etc. I am very intelligent and quick to learn and would benefit from someone that has the time and patience to do some training with me.

I am a working breed and would best be suited to a semi rural situation although my recall would need to be worked on and I obviously have selective hearing if there is any wildlife about! Please complete a rehoming questionnaire if you think you could give this lovable mischief a home.

Angel

Angel6 3x3
  • Breed: Jack Russel Terrier
  • Date of Birth: 01/10/2009
  •  Sex: Female 
  • Colour: White and Tan
  • Dog Friendly: Yes
  • Cat Friendly: No
  • Children: 8 years + 
  • Weight: 10 kg

Retirement foster home needed for Angel. As most of you know Angels mum had open heart surgery at the beginning of December and Angel has been with my house oldies at HQ since then. There have been surgery complications and another issue that has recently been diagnosed and sadly Jackie is not in a position to have Angel back. We have been juggling here as I have 9 dogs, 7 over the age of 13 and some palliative and needing a high level of care and a non mixer. This was ok short term but not fair on Angel long term. As such Angel is not getting the attention she deserves and is used to being Jackie's companion.

Angel is a 15 year old terrier, blind but don't be fooled by her age or her disability, she is full of beans, totally with it and quite a diva! She would suit a retired home with an active retired person who she can potter in the garden with, go out in the car visiting, snooze on their lap and sleep upstairs in the bedroom with them. Angel is happy to be picked up but does weigh about 10kg.

She is in good health, and the rescue will provide her food and medical needs via our vets so any home would need to be Epsom/Banstead/Merstham/Redhill/Godstone area. She could go in a multi dog home but only with other oldies as she is not tolerant of being knocked over or jumped on. If you think you could give Angel a home, please complete our rehoming questionnaire.
