hi all,putting feelers out initially. my husbands step dad has unexpectedly passed away this week then yesterday his mum was taken in to hospital we think it may be a while before she is well and then we dont think she will be able to return to her home. they have a jack russell dog about 6 years old soft as a brush and very very friendly, the neighbours are currently caring for him so i am asking if anyone would be interested if needed to look after him temporarily or maybe permanent, really dont want to put him in rescue he is used to being with people 24/7. we cant have him as i have 4 cats. he is living at lincoln at present, going down tomoz to visit mum and check on the dog will take some pics just in case. thank you. x

Hi Peanut. Sorry to hear about your Husbands Stepdad.

 

It might help if you gave a bit more info about the dog. I know he's not yours so you might not know him very well but would probably be worth finding out. Stuff like is the dog able to live with other dogs? Can he live with kids? Is he destructive in the house? How long can he be left alone for? Is he neutered? Would the fosterer be expected to pay for his food or would costs be covered?

 

Just anything you can think of really.

I'll explain my situation and see what you think.

 

First of all, i must stress that if I was to look after the dog it could only be a temporary thing. I would not be able to have him permanantly. I'd be able to have him untill the last week in July. This is when we move and he wouldn't be able to come with us.

 

I have a dog. She's VERY friendly and i know she'd love to have a little playmate! However, she is very playful and can be quite boistrous! She's never aggressive and doesn't bite at all but she does like to jump and climb on other dogs! She's not a big dog but she's stocky and quite strong.

 

I only work 2 and a half days a week. So for 4 days a week, i'd be at home with the dogs or they'd be out with me. But obviously, on the days that i work, if my boyfriend is also at work, the dogs would have to be left alone together in the house for a few hours.

I don't crate my dog. When we're out, she has the run of the house. So the dog would have to be really good with my dog. I'd need to feel comfortable leaving them alone together and know that he wouldn't be likely to turn on her or snap at her etc.

 

If the dog showed any sign of being destructive (chewing carpets for example), i would have to return him to you straight away as we currently live in a rented property and we really can't afford to loose our deposit!

hello all, im afraid that i am now looking for a permanent home now for benji, it is going to be a while before my husbands mum is going to be well and then she will most likely be in care, i know this is a big ask, even tho i really dont want him to go into care i would have to consider that if cant find him a home, i would need to be assured that he is going to a forever home, i have a pic that i will try to put on later, seen him today he s alovely natured boy , looks like he could do with his nails clipped as he has not been getting much exercise, because he is in lincoln you would have to be sure you really want him,we think he about 6 years, seems to be ok with dogs, not destructive at all just wants some love, thank you x

Why don't you let me foster him for now? If he doesn't get along with my dog or if he is destructive, i'm sure Whittybeaver's offer of foster would still stand.

 

I'd help you to find a permanant for him. I'd even do home checks to make sure he was going to a good home.

 

If he does come to live with me for a while, he'll be loved and looked after while he's here just the same as my dog is. I'd keep you up to date with pics, emails etc xx
