Aurora

Aurora

Jack Russell Terrier Cross - female

**On Hold. Aurora has found her new family and is on hold until she is ready to be adopted out.**

Aurora was born in an animal shelter facility and came into foster care with DCH on the day she was born. She was born a little earlier than expected and was quite small to begin with but has grown to be a wonderful and playful puppy.

Aurora's mother is microchipped as a Jack Russell X Pomeranian and her dad is unknown so we have listed Aurora as a Jack Russell Terrier cross.

She has been raised in care as an indoors / outdoors dog but always sleeps inside. She is used to using a synthetic grass pee mat for a toilet when indoors.

Aurora has received her 1st and 2nd vaccinations and is booked in to receive her 3rd and final one for this year on the 25th March.

She has been wormed, microchipped and flea treated.

Aurora is booked in to be desexed on the 25th March as long as the vets are comfortable with her size at the time. She will also receive a repair for a hernia at the time of desexing.

**NOTE: She will be available for adoption only after she has healed from surgery and a tentative date of when she can be rehomed is the 8th April.

Aurora has a very playful and adventurous nature. She is a bit of a wriggle pot when you pick her up and she just wants to get back down and run around. She has lots of energy and loves to play. She demands attention and does not like being alone.

She will chew on anything left out as any puppy does and she is a bit of a climber and can climb up onto fences and chairs etc.

We would recommend that she attends puppy school after being adopted.

Aurora was adopted on 11 April 2021 after 4 months in foster care

Banjo

Banjo

Fox terrier - male

Update: 20/12. Adoption pending.

I have come in from the pound around 3 weeks ago. I am extremely timid and scared and am only just getting used to my new surroundings.

I am going to need a very special owner to love and care for me, someone who will spend the time continuing the work my foster carer is doing to help me face my fears. Noises really scare me and as of now I only feel safe hiding near a corner. Unfortunately I am unable to tell anyone why I am so scared like this. They are assuming I may have come from a not so friendly home and environment towards me.

I really love to interact with the resident doggy and I get on well with the 2 resident cats so I would love a home with another friendly dog. He has helped me gain some confidence.

I am currently taking anxiety meds to Help me overcome my fears. I
Have started to enjoy running around the backyard supervised.

I am unable to tell anyone my age so the vets have estimated I am anywhere from age 8 upwards. I have a mild heart murmur which doesn’t affect me and I don’t require meds for at this point in time. I have had tests done and my other organs are all healthy.

I will need a desex and my teeth cleaned prior to Being rehomed. I am going to stay with my foster carer until January so she can continue helping me face my fears however will be looking for a home after this to continue it.

Please contact my foster carer Jeanette with expressions of interest and provide some details around the type of home you can offer me.
Email contact only please as I am working and cannot answer the mobile.

Banjo was adopted on 31 January 2021 after 1 month in foster care
