Mika’s Story: Mika was loved by his original family. He got out of the garden when rubbish was being put out and rushed over to a postman. The postman tried to push and kick him away, and Mika bit his shoe. Mika’s family were ordered to give him up by their housing association. We agreed to take him in as soon as kennel space was available.
We believe Mika to be a Bedlington Terrier crossed with a Fell Terrier. His glossy, wavy, luxuriant coat is amazing. Mika is excellent with other dogs of all sizes in the home, but is not for cats or other small animals, including frogs, birds, etc. Mika deserves an experienced terrier or lurcher family behind him so he can achieve full socialisation outside. Wearing his whippet muzzle protects him from his own excitement. Strict exit management essential avoiding front door or back gate opportunist escape. Mika is neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. Mika is currently in boarding kennels near Gatwick. DofB 01/11
If interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our online homing questionnaire.
We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and we will only be able to contact you if we have a suitable dog.
For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.
Please support our work and help our long stay dogs:
Our minimum adoption donation is £200. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life
Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers in particular. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog’s life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
