Matilda – Now Adopted!

Matilda is a shy girl who settles with reassurance. She loves her cuddles and her favourite toys are the squeaky kind. She can follow simple instructions and she stays close by when walked off her lead. She is fine with dogs on her walks as well as in the home.

Dogs Name: Matilda

Age: 3

Can live with children: Yes

Can live with dogs: Yes

Can live with cats: Untested

Current location: Midlands

Things to be Aware of:
Matilda has struggled on occasion when it comes to weeing in the house. She has good days and bad days and her foster mum has worked very hard with her. It is essential that her new family are patient and will commit to continued training with patience and encouragement.

The Ideal Family:
Whilst Matilda lives with children, she can get nervous of sudden movements and loud noises so we feel children over 3 would be preferred but overall, she needs a calm home, where there is someone around for most of the day who can provide her with lots of reassurance and attention.

Other comments:
Matilda hasn’t had the best start in life, and this has caused her some anxiety. We feel that patience is the key here when it comes to her toilet training.

With ongoing encouragement, she will start to relax and realise that she won’t be moved on

Because of her anxious nature, Matilda can’t be left for any more than 4 hours, she travels well so we will consider a new home up to 4 hours from her current location

If you have any questions, please ask Vicky Hill, Matilda’s foster mum

Matilda’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
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.
