Pre Adoption Questionnaire


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 Max will be identified and graded 1st 2nd and 3rd

The 1st applicant will be invited in to talk to a Dog Carer regarding Max. If the Dog Carer and applicant are happy, the process will proceed to them meeting Max. If this meeting is successful the usual adoption process will apply from there on (as per the 10 steps to adoption included on the pre-adoption form)

If for whatever reason the 1st application does not proceed, we will then move to the 2nd applicant and thereafter to the 3rd.

Applications will close on THURSDAY 13th AUGUST AT 4PM and the successful candidate will be contacted by FRIDAY 14th AUGUST 4PM to arrange an appointment to meet Max.

Please note we will not contact unsuccessful candidates.

 

More information about Max

Max is a gentle giant who came into our care after his previous owner had a sudden change in circumstances. He has settled in well and has become accustomed to our daily routines. He can get a bit stressed when left alone for too long so we would advise he has his home alone time built up gradually.

Max would be suitable for 1st time dog owners but he will require some basic training as he currently doesn’t know anything. This would include recall training and toilet training. He does walk well on a lead and doesn’t pull and will walk by your side. 

Max is an ex-racer so would require a good sized garden to let off some steam and two walks per day would be sufficient for him. We have decided due to his racing history, it would better for him to live in a home without small animals including cats.

When mixing Max with dogs, he has shown to be very gentle and playful. He will calmly say hello and have a sniff and will let other dogs have a sniff too. He loves to run around and have a play but when they have had enough, Max will happily go off and do his own thing.

Max is not used to living in a home environment as he was previously kennelled outside, so it may take him a little time to adjust to his new home.  He isn't sure what to do with toys, and although he inteacts gently with his handlers, he doesn't really know how to engage in play.  He is a very affectionate boy so we are sure this wouldn’t take long for him to get used to. He isn't used to wearing a harness, although he is happy to have it on, he doesn’t really move when let off lead. As soon as the harness is off, he will happily wonder off and investigate his surroundings.

In the right home with a comfy sofa for him to snooze on, he will make a lovely addition to your family.
