Lizzie – Now Adopted!

Lizzie is generally a very laid-back girl who doesn’t like rough play. She can be shy & nervous when meeting new people but with a bit of encouragement and reassurance she is fine. She is good at commands and walks well on and off her lead. She has no issues with other dogs, loves a cuddle and is good with the young children in her foster home

Dogs Name: Lizzie

Age: 3

Can live with children: Yes 

Can live with dogs: Yes

Can live with cats: Yes

Current location: Newcastle Upon Tyne

Things to be Aware of:
Lizzie has a tendency to allergies so she will need to stay on her hypo-allergenic food mixed with a grain free meat topper.
She is fine being left but doesn’t like being crated, preferring her bed

The Ideal Family:
Lizzie has been in foster with children aged 5 and over, and as she can be nervous, it’s felt by her foster mum, a calm home with children of similar ages would suit her. She hasn’t shown any problems with other dogs so she can be rehomed with a friendly laid-back dog. She enjoys her walks, so we are looking for an active family for her. 

Other comments:
Lizzie has done well in foster. She is lovely with children and shows no aggression to other dogs so we have no reason to believe she can’t live with a friendly dog. Whilst she can be shy, this shouldn’t put anyone off applying for this lovely girl, with reassurance she soon overcomes this.

She can be left for a maximum of 4 hours and travels well in the car so we will consider her new home up to 4 hours form her current location.

If you have any questions, please ask Julie Anderson, Lizzie’s foster mum.

Lizzie’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 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
