Skye – Up for Adoption

Skye is a very loving girl. She adores being with people and children and loves a chest scratch and any form of stroking, she loves a hug and leans in for a squeeze!

Although she is generally quite chilled, she can also be stubborn. She has come on well in foster and will now sit for food and give you her paw. Her recall is pretty good, and she is happy on her walks but she pulls to get to another dog so again, firm boundaries and continued training will benefit her.

She can be timid when playing and will drop a toy if you try to play with her preferring to have a bone to chew.

Dogs Name: Skye

Age: 3 Years old

Can live with children: Yes

Can live with dogs: Untested

Can live with cats: No

Current location: Wiltshire

Things to be Aware of:

Skye will need to be spayed in the next few weeks. The charity will organise and pay for this, and because of this, we can’t consider homes where there is a resident entire dog.

She does not like being touched on her face/rolls but is getting better. There is no aggression she just prefers not to have her face cleaned.

Skye is scared of noises and quick movements, and she isn’t a fan of the hoover, she’s just a little anxious.

The Ideal Family:
Skye will make a lovely family pet where she can be loved and get lots of fuss. She can be rehomed with dog savvy children as she copes well with the children in foster. She is untested around other dogs so introductions to another dog(s) before adoption would be prudent. She will be happy as an only dog as long as there are people around for a good part of the day.

Other comments:
Skye is a very sweet natured girl who loves being around children and adults alike. She will need some more lead training, but she has come on well in foster. She is now toilet trained and up to date with her vaccinations.

Skye can be left up to 4 hours and she settles well preferring not to be crated. She is ok with car travel so we will consider applications up to 4 hours form her current location in Wiltshire

If you have any questions, please ask Tia Martin, foster mum to Skye.

Skyes 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.



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.
