Skye is quite a shy dog who isn’t overly keen on rough play. She loves her toys and can be a bit possessive over them with the resident dog in foster, but she happily shares her toys with Jack.
She follows commands such as Sit, Paw, Bed etc. She is good on her walks either alone or with a pack and she is very affectionate, loving bath time, cuddles and brushing, any interaction really. Skye will happily sit around with the children, and in her foster mums’ words, ‘she is amazing with them’
Jack loves a bit of rough play and he loves his rubber toys. Like Skye, he is very good with children of all ages. He responds to commands well and loves being out walking with other dogs. He loves a fuss & cuddle like Skye and will push her out of the way to make sure he gets the lions share.
Both Skye and Jack are great out on their walks. They don’t pull and they are happy to greet other dogs. Jack’s recall is pretty good but still needs a bit of training, Skye hasn’t been tested off the lead.
Things to be Aware of:
Skye loves footballs and balloons which she will pop. If children are playing with a ball around her, she will get it!!
She has had a full tail amputation which will just need keeping an eye on whilst its healing but there should be no ongoing issues
Jack needs his ears flushed every so often which he lets you do, and his tail pocket and nose rope need to be cleaned regularly – his foster mum will advise.
The Ideal Family:
As Skye & Jack both love interaction and have really been great family pets whilst they have been in foster, it would be nice if they can be rehomed with children, but essentially, they need company so we are looking for their new owner(s) to provide a loving home where they will not be left for long periods giving them lots of attention and walks.
Skye and Jack can be crated during the day for up to 3 hours and as they travel well, we will consider a new home up to 4 hours from their current location. Both Skye and Jack have been sterilised.
If you have any questions, please ask Louise Toon, their foster mum
Their adoption fee is £600 and will need to be paid in full prior to them 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.
