Kiki – Now Adopted!
Kiki is a very gentle and loving Bulldog who loves the young children in her foster home. She isn’t bothered about playing with toys very much, but she loves the fuss and attention she gets from the children.
She walks well on her lead and harness and is non-reactive to dogs on her walks, and very friendly towards them.
Kiki can follow commands such as sit and stay, and she has good recall off the lead. She isn’t a rough and tumble kind of girl; she prefers gentle strokes and enjoys lots of fuss.
Dogs Name: Kiki (Frankie)
Age: 5 years 11 months
Can live with children: Yes
Can live with dogs: Yes
Can live with cats: Untested but probably
Current location: Midlands
Things to be Aware of:
Kiki has a condition called Megaoesophagus and as such she needs to be fed in a Bailey chair. She is fed balls of food which is her kibble which has been soaked and made onto balls which are hand fed to her and then she needs to remain in the chair for 10 minutes to allow her food to go down.
Her foster mum can talk any prospective owners through the process. This isn’t difficult to do at all and she is fed morning and night.
The Ideal Family:
Kiki needs to be in a home where there is someone with the time to meet her feeding needs twice a day, also take her for walks (which she really enjoys) and give her lots of cuddles and attention.
Because of her demeaner with dogs outside the home, we have no reason to think she could not live with an equally friendly dog. And because she is gentle around children, we have no restriction on the ages of any children in the home.
Kiki has been described by her foster mum as a bulldog who needs to know she is loved; she really is a sweetheart who deserves a very loving home.
Kiki is toilet trained and can be left up to 4 hours. She is spayed and up to date with her vaccinations and travels well so we will consider a new home up to 4 hours from her current location in the Midlands
If you have any questions, please ask Vicky Hill, Kiki’s foster mum
Kiki’s adoption fee is £300 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 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.
