Dogs Name: Marley

Age: 3 years old

Can live with children: Older children

Can live with dogs: No

Can live with cats: Untested

Current location: South Yorkshire

Things to be Aware of:
Marley can get nervous if you make sudden movements around him and he can be reactive to dogs on occassion.

The Ideal Family:
Marley needs a home where the family are experienced dog owners and where he is the only dog. He will need continued training and positive reinforcement.

Because he can be boisterous and lively, the best environment for him will be an active child free home or where children are aged 16 and over.

As he is an energetic dog, he will need lots of walks and playtime and be in a home where he is not left for any more than 4 hours during the day.

Other comments:
Marley came to us as a boisterous young boy who had not received any training.

He displayed anxiety and nervousness when he came into foster but with nurturing and patience, he has started to build up trust and relaxing into a loving family dog.

He will need space and time to settle in his new home and takes comfort in being crated so we advise this is continued and we can advise.

He is on a raw diet which suits him well and his foster dad can advise on brand and portion size.

Marley is house trained, neutered, up to date with his vaccinations and travels well so we will consider a new home up to 4 hours from his current location.

If you have any questions, please ask John Westerman, foster dad to Marley

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



Adoption Information

*** 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.
