Below are brief details of Rhodesian Ridgebacks re-homed during 2008. We would like to offer our deepest thanks to all of their new owners for giving these boys and girls another chance.

These are the lucky ones but some are left behind; still seeking those special people to offer them another chance.

Could you be one of the special ones? If you think you could be please go to the Re-Homing Page for further details.

 Thank You.

 

Rhodesian Ridgebacks Re-Homed in 2008
Simba 2 - Has found a new home!
Age 2 Years

No Name 2 - Currently at Home

Unfortunately we have been unable to contact "No Names" owners. Accordingly we can no longer offer him for adoption.

Age 9 Years
Male


We have only brief details of this "Old Boy", not even his name.

He is in need of a new home because his family are moving to accommodation that wont accept dogs. He is used to living outside since he has done so since he was two years old.

Can him love and affection in his twilight years?

Ruby - Has found a new family!
Age 14 Months
Spayed Female


We are in formed that Ruby is good with people and children of all ages, a very happy girl who is responsive to commands and eager to learn.

She is good with dogs and cats she knows - but will snap at dogs she doesn't know. She does chew when left alone, but is cage trained.

A typical youngster with plenty of energy she would probably best be re-homed with someone who can be with her for most of the time, certainly in the early months.


Ruby 
Fifi - Is off to live with one of her current owner's relatives!
Age 20 Months
Female


Poor Fifi has not had the best start in life. While with her first owners she was badly injured after falling down some steps with the result that one of her front legs had to be amputated. Now her current family have to move home and she is unable to go with them.

We are informed that she is good with children and rabbits!? but not other dogs.

Awaiting Photograph
Harvey - The good news for Harvey is that he will now be able to stay in his current home!
Age 3 Years
Neutered Male


As yet we have only the sketchiest details of Harvey. We are told that he is a good natured dog - good with children.
Awaiting Photograph
Bern - Has found his new home! With another dog for a companion he seems to be enjoying life to the full!!
Age 12 Months
Male

Berne is a 12 month old puppy who is seeking a new home. Due to his owners circumstances unfortunately he is confined to the house for most of the time.
He is very boisterous and will require some basic obedience training and house training since he his not fully clean. Ideally he would be best re-homed with someone experienced with ridgebacks or at least with experience of another large breed. A sensitive and patient approach will be needed from his new owners.

Bern
Maxi - Is now able to stay in his current home.
Age 6 Years
Male

Due to a change in Maxi's owner's circumstances he is looking for a new home.
We are informed that he is good with other dogs, with visitors and with children, although he has never lived with them. His one vice seems to be cats, he doesn't like them!
Awaiting Photograph
Taff - At long last Taff has found a lovely home. He has gone to live with Scooby (see below). A new home and a lady friend! Can't be bad!!
Age 4 Years
Male

Taff is a very confident dog who is very happy and relaxed with people. Unfortunately he cannot live with cats or other small animals. he would best be re-homed as an only dog or possibly with females of similar size to himself.

Taff
Robert - Has been Re-homed by the RSPCA
Age 18 Months
Male

Robert is currently in the charge of the RSPCA in Preston.

Simba - Has settled well in his new home and even appears to have been accepted by the resident cat!Currently at Home
Age 4 Years
Male

Due to a change in his owners' personal circumstances, Simba is looking for a new home.
Having lived with young children of ages four, seven and nine he is used to and good with them. He accepts cats and is OK with other dogs as long as they are not pushy with him.
He doesn't like being left alone for too long so ideally he would best be re-homed with someone who could be with him for most of the time.

Awaiting Photograph
Lennie - Has found his new home and has settled well to the country life!
Age Approximately 2 Years
Male

Lennie is a stray who has recently arrived at the kennels. He is a big strong lad but has a lovely nature and is good with people.

Awaiting Photograph
Duke 2 - Has found a new home
Age 12 Months
Male

We are informed by his current owner that Duke is good with practically everything that he encounters. Has lived with a teenager, is good with other animals, including other dogs, and accepts strangers without a problem.

Awaiting Photograph
Sam - Has found his new home and settled in beautifully
Age 6 Years
Male

Sadly for both Sam and his current owner, circumstances dictate that they must part. Later in the year his owner is going to live abroad in a flat within a tower block and realises this is no good for Sam.

Can you offer this boy a chance to keep his feet on the ground?
Sam
Monty - Has found his new home and is set to spend his adult years hill walking!

Age 8 Months
Male

Due to a change in his current owners circumstances Monty is looking for a new home. A castrated male he has lived with children aged 9 and 6 of whom he is said to be quite protective. He is said to be fine with visitors to the home and other dogs. As with many male ridgebacks of his age he will need sympathetic but firm handling.
Awaiting Photograph
Buster - Buster has found his new home with Marmalade, an older ridgeback female, who no doubt will keep him in check!
Age 12 Months
Male

Buster hasn't had the best start in life and likely has been beaten. He has only been in kennels for a few days and while still very apprehensive of initial human approach soon comes out of himself and becomes a playful puppy. He will need an experienced and gentle owner, and require sensitive handling.
Buster
Kuma - Has at long last found his soul mates! He has a lovely new home where we hope he will be very happy.
Age 2 1/2 Years Approximately
Male

A Castrated Male, Kuma needs to be re-homed as an only dog and in a home without small children. He is jealous of other dogs which is why he had to leave his previous home.
Kuma
Kuda - Has found a lovely home and settled in immediately.
Age 6 Years
Male

Having been brought from an all breeds rescue kennel, little is known about Kuda. We are informed that his family are having to move to smaller premises and there is no room for him.
However, he has been checked or handled during his move by no less than four of our rescue volunteers all of whom have the impression that Kuda is of sound temperament.

Kuda
Bailey - Has found a lovely new home.
Age 16 Months
Male

Bailey is a strong and boisterous dog who appears to have had very little in the way of training. We are told that he very much enjoys the outdoor life. Ideally he would be suited to someone experienced with big dogs.
Bailey 
Spike - Currently at Home
Age 7 Years
Male

Unfortunately we have been unable to contact Spike's owners. Accordingly we can no longer offer him for adoption.

Unfortunately due to a change in his owners circumstances lovely Spike is looking for a loving new home.

He is a really laid back character of excellent temperament and good with children. Would almost certainly settle as an only dog or with bitches, since he seems to have no desire to wear the trousers!
Spike 
Tilly - Has found a lovely home with an 8 month old puppy to take under her wing!
Age 9 Years
Ridgeless Female

Sadly, Tilly and her family have had to part. Due to work commitments the family have had to move abroad and circumstances dictate that Tilly cannot go with them. Sporting very distinctive "silver points" she is a very gentle and sweet natured grand old lady.

Can you offer the soft bed and warm affection that she has been used to?

Tilly
Scooby - Has now found a lovely new home
Age 4 Years
Ridgeless Female

Due to a change in her owners circumstance, Scooby is looking for a new home. She is good with people but is certainly not happy around small dogs. However, she may do well with dogs of her own size.

Scooby
Dino - Dino is now staying with his original family.
Age 2 1/2 Years
Male

Due to unfortunate circumstances Dino is looking for a new home. We are informed that he is of good nature and used to meeting people, including children although he hasn't lived with children. He can be a little wary of other dogs when out.

June 2008
 
Buddy - Buddy has now found a new home.
Age 2 1/2 Years Approximately
Male

Buddy is a well cared for boy who was found wandering in the Leeds area wearing a harness. He seems to be of lovely character and is pleased to meet anybody. He may need some coaxing to get into a car but even lifting him in doesn't phase him!!

Re homed June 2008
Buddy
Righteous - With the help of the good offices of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Welfare Trust, Righteous has found a lovely new home.
Age 4 Years
Male

Ideally Righteous should be re-homed with somebody who has experience with big dogs. He has had little in the way of socialisation, which we are working on at the moment, and should not be re-homed with small children.

Re homed June 2008

Bart - It seems that Bart no longer needs to be re-homed
Age 4 Years
Livernose Male

Since the introduction of a third dog into his pack, Bart is now fighting with his old companion and therefore needs to be re-homed. We are informed that he has lived with children but their ages have yet to be confirmed.

Further Details to follow.

Zy - Fortunately Zy's original owners have managed to arrange things so that they are now able to keep him - He has gone back home!
Age 7 Years
Male

Unfortunately due to a change in his owners circumstances Zy is looking for a loving new home.

He doesn't like to be left for long periods and when in the past he has been, he has been destructive. However, at the kennels he has been the perfect gentleman, not touching a thing.

Could you give him the chance of a new life?
Awaiting Photograph
Sampson - Has found a lovely new home and settled in without any problem.
Age 9 Years
Male

Unfortunately due to a change in his owners circumstances  this old boy is now seeking a loving new home in which to spend his twilight years. Although a little wary of other dogs when out, he currently lives with a dog and cats. He is used to teenagers and is described as lovable, quiet and lazy, liking nothing more than laying by the fire or in the sun!

Re homed April 2008 - more here
Sampson & Yoda
Holly - It seems at last has found her soul mate! Holly and her new owner dote on each other!
Age 5 Years
Female

Holly is another girl who is suffering from a lack of socialisation as a puppy. More than this she has been teased by a young child and as a consequence does not get on with them. Holly would need to be re-homed as an only dog in a household without children.

Holly
Ekky - Current owners are working at keeping him with them.
Age 18 Months
Male

Due to an unfortunate change in circumstances Ekky is now looking for a new home.

Further Details to follow.

Poppy - Has found a lovely new home
Age 1 Year
Ridgeless Female

Poppy has been re-homed once during her short life. Unfortunately she didn't get along with the other dog in the household. She is good with people but may have to be re-homed as an only dog.
Poppy
Simba - Has found a lovely new home
Age 20 Months
Female

Due to the children in her household developing an allergy to her, Simba is looking for a loving new home.

She is Miss Placid, very calm and of course used to children.

Is she for you?
Awaiting Photograph 
Max & Zeta - Now have a lovely new home together and have settled in brilliantly!

Max Age 12 Years
Male

Zeta Age 14 Years
Female

Max & Zeta have lost their home due to a change in their owners circumstances.

At the moment we only have a picture of Max, a pure bred gentle grey old boy who enjoys the odd plod around. Zeta, who is a Ridgeback Cross, while a couple of years his senior is still quite lively. Both are of super temperament and quite enchanting.

These two dote on each other and must be re-homed together. They would love to have the luxury of a nice soft cosy bed that they could snuggle into together, preferably in front of a roaring fire - or radiator! Do you have one to offer?
Max
Sasha 2 - Has now found a loving new home.
Age 12 Months
Female

Not to be confused with the Sasha listed above, this is Sasha 2!

Due to a change in her former owner's circumstances, Sasha 2 is looking for a loving new home.

Not big in stature(can one use petite to describe a ridgeback - perhaps not!) and although a little apprehensive, she is very good natured and has lived with small children. At the moment she is proving not to be the most accomplished traveller.
Sasha 
Fudge - has now found a new home!
Age 8 Years
Female

Unfortunately due to a change in her owners circumstances gentle, yet active, Fudge is now seeking a loving new home. She loves nothing better than the company of people and loves to play. She is good with other dogs and currently lives with a cat. If you can offer a nice comfortable life, lovely Fudge could be your girl!

Fudge 
Sasha - has been re-homed by her former owners
Age 5 Years
Female

Unfortunately due to a change in her owner's circumstances Sasha is looking for a loving new home.

She is impeccably behaved with her current owner's young children, is good with big dogs but doesn't like small ones. She has taken a dislike to hats, which is not unknown in ridgebacks!

While she is housetrained she has had the occasional "accident" when unable to access the garden. This small problem should be easily overcome.
Sasha
Abbie - Abbie has now found a lovely new home
Age 4 Years
Female

It would seem that Abbie has had little in the way of socialization. A little on the nervy side she is better with women than men and would need an experienced owner.
Abbie
Biba - Biba has now found a new home!
Age 11 Months
Female

Biba came to us as a very frightened puppy only a matter of a few months old. While she has made progress she is still quite nervous and would need a quiet home with a very experienced owner.

Awaiting Photograph
Nero - He has now settled with his brother so will be staying in his original home
Age 8 Months
Male

Nero is one of two litter brothers who have lived together since birth. Sadly they are now fighting with one another and consequently Nero is looking for a new home.

He should settle as an only dog or possibly with adult female(s).

Awaiting Photograph 
Max - Max has found a new home!
Age 10 Months
Male

Max is a very boisterous youngster who is just about entering his doggy teenage years! He is good with people and has been good with his owners grandchildren and horses. While there are no obvious problems he has been destructive and would probably best be re-homed with an experienced owner.

Awaiting Photograph
Otis - Otis has found a new home!
Age 7 Months
Male

Otis is a big bouncy baby who has lost his home through tragic circumstances. He has been beautifully cared for and has a lovely temperament. He is used to children and has lived with a cat! A lovely boy.
Ottis
 
Cofi & MontyPlease note:- We have reproduced this message on behalf of The Dogs Trust, Merseyside Centre. All enquires about these boys should be directed to them on 0151 480 0660 -

WE ARE INFORMED THAT BOTH THESE BOYS HAVE BEEN RE-HOMED TOGETHER!!

COFI AGE 7 & MONTY AGE 10
Both Male

Likes and dislikes:
These two have been together all of Cofi’s life and so we wouldn’t want to separate them. We’d love to see these two get a home together. They are here at the Merseyside Centre as their owner started to work longer hours and didn’t have the time needed to care for these lovely boys.

Type of home needed:
TThey both mix well with other dogs and we’d recommend that they go to a home free from children under the age of five, simply because the are big, strong boys. They are both strong on the lead and so would need an owner who would be able to handle the two of them when out and about! They both have a few lumps and bumps so they are offered on the Dogs Trust foster scheme.
