Skye is a very bright and loving girl. She responds to commands such as sit, stay etc and she loves all human contact, from having her face wiped to strokes and cuddles.
She is a strong young girl who is reactive towards other dogs and for this reason she is kept on a lead and can’t be allowed to free run . She will pull if she sees a dog, but she is very good at walking on her own and isn’t worried by traffic.
Skye is very happy to laze around in her foster home and have a mooch about in the garden.
Dogs Name: Skye
Age: 3 & 1/2 years old
Can live with children: Yes aged 7 years and over, reason being she needs calm influences.
Can live with dogs: No
Can live with cats: No
Current location: Berkshire
Things to be Aware of:
As mentioned, Skye can be reactive to dogs. She is also sensitive to certain proteins so she will need to stay on her current food which is readily available.
The Ideal Family:
Skye needs a Bull breed savvy, dog free home where her owner will be a strong pack leader who will provide ongoing training for her or someone with experience of a quirky bulldog. She is the perfect girl in the homes and has been very good around the visiting children. She cannot be off her lead outside the home, so a garden would be perfect for her to run around.
Skye has a very loving personality. She is a quick learner and tries to please. She respects a strong pack leader so this will be essential for her successful adoption.
Skye travels well so we will consider homes up to 4 hours from her location in East Berkshire
She is spayed, up to date with her vaccinations, can be left for up to 4 hours and is toilet trained.
If you have any questions, please ask Marlize Barnard Whitfield foster mum to Skye.
Skye’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.
