Geoff and his four brothers were born in kennels back in December where they remained until June when they were signed over to and arrived at SDR. He has settled into kennels very well enjoying all the fuss and cuddles his dog carer give him. He is a wonderful character.

We are looking for someone who has breed experience and has owned dogs before as Geoff will require a lot of training.  As he has grown up in kennels, he has never experienced a home environment so everything is going to be new and possibly a little scary to him.  He will require all the basic training, including toilet training.

Geoff has a lovely personality and always happy to see you. He will need lots of training but he is very smart and would love to learn he can jump up when he gets excited but with training and learning to walk nicely on a lead you will get a very wonderfully dog.

Geoff is fed three times a day on Arden Grange puppy but does require a slowdown bowl as he does bolt his food.  He would enjoy interactive feeding toys in the home to keep him brain stimulated.

Geoff can live with a dog of similar size who could teach him a few manners. Geoff can be very excitable so if living with another dog they will need to be happy to interact with an excitable pup, but also tell him politely when enough, is enough. He can also live with cats.

Geoff is looking for an active household where new owners are around for the majority of the day.  He will need an enclosed garden with a 5ft fence so he can run around and play with his toys and to do training with him.

He is a lovely affectionate dog who just wants to be loved and have a nice cosy bed to go to sleep on. Once trained Geoff will be a loyal companion.

The adoption fee for Geoff is £275

 

If you are interested in adopting Geoff, you will need to register your interest by filling in and returning one of our pre-adoption questionnaires (see below). 

PRE - ADOPTION QUESTIONNAIRE

If you live in rented accommodation, in addition to the completed pre-adoption questionnaire please include written permission from your landlord or housing authority, confirming that they are happy for you to keep a dog in the property. If you already have a dog/s the permission must state the number of dogs allowed – without this we cannot include the application.

Completed application forms and landlord permissions if applicable must be emailed to nicola@stokenchurchdogrescue.org.uk with ‘Geoff’ in the subject bar, or hand your completed form into reception.

Emails sent to other addresses will not be considered.

**Geoff will not be available for viewing until he meets his potential adopter**

Selection process:

A Dog Carer will assess each potential adopter on the information provided on the pre-adoption form.

The three most suitable homes for Geoff will be identified. These suitable applicants will then be invited in at an appointed time to discuss the needs of the dog further.   We will then select the most suitable applicant.

The deadline for applications is MONDAY 15TH AUGUST at 4PM and the successful candidates will be contacted within 24 hours. Applications received after MONDAY 15TH AUGUST at 4PM will not be included. The successful candidate must be available to meet Geoff for the first time on THURSDAY 18TH AUGUST (appointments start from 1:30pm).

Please note due to the increase in applications for all dogs and limited resource we will not contact unsuccessful candidates or give individual feedback.
