Wincey is a typical young Bulldog who is very playful and interested in everything and everyone. She is happy to be bathed and groomed and she enjoys her walks. She loves the children in her foster home and will lay down next to the 1 year old baby quite happily. Wincey also loves a good cuddle and enjoys the attention from her foster family
She enjoys her walks and can be quite vocal to other dogs, but not aggressive. She loves her food and it excites her so much she is fed half her kibble in a snuffle matt just so it slows her down and makes her work to find her food.
As a puppy she will try and push boundaries so continued training will be required.
Dogs Name: Wincey
Age: 7 months old
Can live with children: Yes
Can live with dogs: Yes
Can live with cats: Yes, but with dog savvy cats
Current location: Midlands
Things to be Aware of:
Wincey was born with a congenital heart complaint that could be life limiting, but then she could live a long life, the case studies show long and short lived.
She has seen a heart specialist and it’s been confirmed her condition is in-operable but can be managed with medication. She is currently on half a tablet twice a day and the charity will continue to provide medical support for her regarding this condition for the rest of her life, we will also cover her heart scans yearly.
She is also un-spayed so the charity will cover the cost of this once she has reached maturity but as yet, its not clear whether she can be put under general anaesthesia.
Wincey’s new owners will have to monitor her, and appreciate that she will not be able to have long walks or extended playtime; having said that, she is a bouncy and energetic young girl so she will just need pulling back a bit when she gets too hyperactive with time out in her crate.
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) She cannot be rehomed with an entire male dog.
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 ‘downtime’ as too much excitement can make her heart race. This said, her specialist vet said she manages amazingly.
Wincey is house trained but being a puppy there maybe the odd accident as she’s still young
*** 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.
