Beau – Now Adopted!

Beau is a lovely dog that adores children and would rather snuggle up with them than play. She is full of character and can be stubborn (as bulldogs tend to be) but she is good at commands and great off the lead. She will give you her paw and is fine with dogs outside the home.

Dogs Name: Beau

Age: 6

Can live with children: Yes 

Can live with dogs: Yes (but see comments)

Can live with cats: No

Current location: Whitby, Yorkshire

Things to be Aware of:
Beau has a bit of arthritis in her leg that gives her some discomfort so she will need to continue taking supplements for this. She is also on prescription food for weight loss, as her weight needs to be controlled to help with her leg.
Because of her arthritis, she is not able to walk long distances so needs to be limited to short walks.

The Ideal Family:
Beau has done well in foster, she has really enjoyed being around the children aged 1 and 10 so, ideally she will be rehomed with a young family where she can bond with the children or a ‘stay at home’ family as she prefers human contact to anything else.

Other comments:
Beau has been in foster with other dogs, but it has become apparent, when given and choice, she prefers all the attention for herself, so our preference would be for her to be rehomed as an only dog.

Beau can be left for a maximum of 4 hours.

She isn’t the best traveller so the maximum travel to her new home will be 4 hours from her current location.

If you have any questions, please ask Verity Carnie, Harper’s foster mum

Beau’s adoption fee is £250 and will need to be paid in full prior to her going home which will also be subject to a home check.

*** As of the 4th of April 2019, Geordie Bullies Springboard introduced a small charge to apply to adopt a dog from our charity. *** IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY AGAIN FOR 12 MONTHS***

How will it work?
We will be charging £5.00 per year for membership to apply for a bulldog with the charity, this will also cover the cost of a home check if required. 
This fee will cover you for one year from the date you apply, you do not pay per application. 
For example, you apply for a dog and pay your £5.00 membership, you have a home check and are not successful for that dog, so you apply again for another dog a few months after, you will not pay another £5.00 assuming your situation is the same.
Please note, there is an exception to the above. If you pay your £5.00 and move within the year and require another home check before you have been successful, there will be a further £5.00 charge to cover volunteer expenses of carrying out a new home check.
Your responsibility as an applicant
When you are applying for a dog, you MUST make sure you meet the adoption criteria and you are 100% sure you are ready to open your heart and home to a rescue dog. Please pay attention to the requirements of the dog, in particular, consider the following. 
• How far the dog can travel in relation to where you live.
• The suitability of the dog should you wish to add to your pack later. Does the dog you are applying to adopt like other dogs? 
• Are there any restrictions with the age of children the dog can be rehomed with? If so, how does this match your family unit?
Prior to completing an application form, you will need to pay the £5.00 fee via PayPal. 
Please put the name of the dog and your name as reference. E.g. Joe Bloggs (your name) / Bella (dogs name). Please make a note of your payment reference number. PLEASE also ensure you select friends and family to avoid fees for the charity, the fees are an extra 30p if you wish to pay goods and services so £5.30 instead of £5.00
When completing the adoption application form, you will be prompted to enter your PayPal reference number and date of payment. If this is not entered, we will not process your application.
