Stanley – Now Adopted!

Stan is a very easy going Bulldog, he loves being fussed and cuddled, whether that’s by children or adults. He’s playful with another dog in the family, loves his food and everyone else’s given the chance. His foster mum has described him as a real character he can be stubborn but will do as he is told, he is fantastic around all animals and children of all ages. He is great on the lead but his recall wasn’t great but he has been quite deaf until recently because of chronic ear infection, he’s building up muscle in his legs as he wasn’t used to exercise. Stan knows basic commands and will generally do anything for a treat.

Dogs Name: Stanley

Age: 7

Can live with children: Yes

Can live with dogs: Yes

Can live with cats: Yes

Current location: Midlands

Things to be Aware of:
Stanley is an ex stud dog and is now neutered. He does tend to wet his bed if he’s given the chance but when he’s crated this has stopped, however he won’t have a bed in his crate he just likes the plastic bottom. Stans foster mum can advise on this. If he’s left out at night he pees, he likes his crate so it’s a win, win situation
Stanley loves to have a bath; he’s not fussed but his ears or tail being done he just lets you do anything for a treat.

The Ideal Family:
Stan has really flourished being in a home surrounded by children and with playful dogs so we would ideally like him to go to a similar home where he can please himself to join in or chill out.

Other comments:
Stan has captured everyone’s heart; he is such a happy boy who loves having people around him. He can be left for a maximum of 4 hours during the day in a crate. And he travels well in a crate so we will consider a new home for him up to 4 hours from his current location.

Stan comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

If you have any questions, please ask Louise Toon, Stans foster mum

Stans adoption fee is £200 and will need to be paid in full prior to him going home which will also be subject to a home check.

*** As of the 4th 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
