Adopt Eric!

Eric is a loving and affectionate 5 year old male dog for adoption, who is looking for his very own safe haven with a loving family where he can feel secure and cherished.

Eric adores people and simply craves cuddles and affection.  He has a timid nature, so can be uncertain on walks, needing some help with confidence building as he often seeks reassurance, yet he loves his walks in the countryside with his friend Ariel who he relies on for confidence – with further patient guidance and understanding from his new family, he will easily blossom into the vibrant, gregarious spirit he’s meant to be!

This kind and incredibly joyful little boy brims with affection and loyalty, he walks nicely on the lead, is great meeting people and dogs out on his walks, and with his love of people he has great recall, although with his timid nature, he can be easily startled, so off-lead walks should be limited to very safe, quiet places, close to home, that he has already got to know very well over a period of time.

Eric is a sweet, gentle soul, whose heart is full of love, so can suit living with dog savvy kids.  He needs a home in a peaceful setting away from busy towns or cities with access to a garden and would enjoy company for most of the day. Eric becomes much more confident when he is with another dog, as on his own he finds it difficult to cope outside of his safe surroundings, so a home with another dog is a must for Eric, either his new family will have an existing resident dog, or they adopt Eric together with another dog.

In summary, Eric is a really adorable, good natured dog, who, with just a little bit of nurturing, will absolutely flourish with a new loving family.

All of our dogs have lived their whole lives in family groups in an open space, kennel free environment and it is therefore a shock for them to leave all that they know. For this reason, we require Eric’s new family to either have an existing resident dog if introductions go well, or adopt Eric together with another dog.

Holistic Rawfeeding Rescue
We are a holistic rawfeeding rescue, so as with all our rescue dogs and puppies for adoption, Eric is being fed a natural raw diet and is currently being fed Paleo Ridge for improved health and longevity.

As a rawfeeding rescue, we ask that this diet is continued in her new home as he loves it so much! We provide full advice and support as standard for anyone who is new to rawfeeding dogs or holistic priniciples.

Homecheck by your chosen dog applies to see if he likes her new home!  Our Dog Adoption process involves several visits to get to know your dog, and for your dog to get to know you, so that the rehoming is not a shock away from all that she knows and is simply a natural transition to his new family.  We find that this helps our rescue dogs to settle into their new home with less stress and anxiety and makes for much more successful adoptions.

For this reason, we only rehome within travelling distance of our base in West Wales at the moment. Full lifetime rescue backup and adoption contract applies, so if for any reason our dog is not suitable or circumstances change, we require the dog to be returned to us.

** We are just a very small team here in the UK, so we currently prioritize adopters within travelling distance of our base in West Wales, due to the practicalities of journey times for post-adoption back-up and support from our sanctuary. We apologize if this leads to disappointment, however we have found through experience that more local dog adoptions do not overstretch our limited resources. Thank you for your understanding!
