Last week Matt Johnson found out all about the process of rehoming a dog, and this week he's busy considering some of the things that you might need to do once you get your rescue dog home.
We'll look at how to make your dog feel at home, how to establish the house rules and watch out for hazards around the home, as well as tips on protecting your dog's identity and health.
Matt's also going to be introducing you to four more rescue dogs who need a loving home.
BOBBY AND WENDY THE GREYHOUNDS (from RSPCA)
Three year old black greyhounds, Bobby and Wendy are looking for a new home together. Bobby came into the RSPCA with his girlfriend Wendy after they were found living in poor conditions. A devoted couple - Bobby is a lively chap who loves squeaky toys and going for long walks, and Wendy has an excitable nature and will do anything for food! Due to their breed they cannot live with cats and small animals but they could live with another medium dog and can live with children 8 years plus. Greyhounds are surprisingly lazy pets, who love sleeping and require no more excercise than many other breeds of dogs. They are loyal, gentle and ideal family pets despite their athletic reputation.
BUSTER (from Battersea Dog's Home)
Buster is an eleven year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He is an older gentleman who is looking for a peaceful retirement home. He is a really gentle, affectionate soul and is suitable to live with children who will be affectionate with him, rather than very young children who will be boisterous. He can/ cannot live with other dogs.
MINNIE (from Dog's Trust)Minnie is a four month old crossbreed and came into the centre after being found straying. She is looking for an energetic home as she is an active young girl and needs a family that can work with her on her basic training. She loves other dogs and would happily live with another canine pal that can show her the ropes and help her settle in to her new home. She can live with children over 8.
