Things to be Aware of:
Wincey was born with a congenital heart condition that will be life limiting. She has seen a heart specialist and its been confirmed her condition is inoperable but can be managed with medication.
The charity will fund Wincey’s treatment but because of her condition, her new owners will have to monitor her and appreciate that she will not be able to have long walks or extended playtime.
She needs managing to make sure her heart is not put under undue pressure. It’s imperative this is understood. We will be able to give guidance.
Wincey still has the odd accident in the home and needs continued training as she is just a puppy.
The Ideal Family:
Wincey loves being around people so we will only consider a new home where there is someone around during the day to keep an eye on her, although she can be left in her crate for up to 4 hours.
We will consider a family with another friendly dog but has Wincey is not spayed we would need to see evidence that the dog is neutered (if male)
Wincey is a special girl that needs a special home. Her new owners must understand her limitations, as being a puppy, she will keep playing but she needs ‘down time’ and too much excitement has to be avoided.
That said, she is a playful girl and can be rehomed with children and dogs if care is given.
*** Wincey will stay under the care of Willows in Solihull where treatment for her heart condition will be covered by us including medication, scans etc so because of this she needs a home within 1 hour maximum of Solihull ***
If you have any questions, please ask Vicky Hill, Wincey’s foster mum
Wincey’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.

• 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?
