Ella – Now Adopted!

Ella is a very loving girl who likes to have a lot of human attention. She isn’t keen on rough play and doesn’t really know how to play with balls, but she likes tug of war toys. She enjoys her walks and can be reactive to other dogs, but she is easily distracted.

Dogs Name: Ella

Age: 2 years 10 months

Can live with children: Yes – see comments

Can live with dogs: No

Can live with cats: Yes

Current location: North East

Things to be Aware of:
Ella is quite a timid girl who can easily be scared by loud noises and new surroundings.

She can get over excited around noisy children and will jump up, so she will need a calm home.

The Ideal Family:
Whilst Ella can be re-homed with children, we feel children aged 12 and over would be more suited than younger children. This is because she is much better being in a calm environment, and she doesn’t cope very well with children running around and loud noises. She enjoys her walks and cuddles and will make a lovely companion.

Other comments:
Ella is a little sweetheart. She has spent a lot of time in a crate in the past and she finds comfort in it and will happily take herself to her quiet area when she needs to.

In foster she is gaining more confidence and is learning to trust her foster parents. She will need understanding and patience in her new home where continued nurturing will be required.

Ella can be left for up to 4 hours and as she travels well, she can be re-homed up to 4 hours from her current location and is house trained.

Ella’s adoption fee is £400 and will need to be paid in full prior to her going home which will also be subject to a home check.

*** As 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
