    Thanks for the replies and thanks for those links JeanGenie - think with something like this it's better to get a recommendation of where to go

    Thanks. I'm not sure what kind of dog I want to be honest - not sure if that is a good or bad thing. I'm not keen on having a Staffordshire dog but if I came across one and we clicked then it must have meant to be

    Also! I fully recommended Ruff Luck Rescue, in Nuneaton. They have some lovely dogs there, not just staffies either.
    The same kennels they use house Love Underdogs (Romanian dogs). I've met some of their dogs, fantastic animals. Lovely temperaments.

    2 more for you to get your teeth into!

    Thanks, i might actually pop up later today if you will be open. Theres a couple I have seen on the site I like the look of. Any reason why every home seems to have a lot of staffie dogs, every rescue i've looked at has at least 4?

    Staffies are overbred, so much so it's very desperate in rescue homes to actually find them space sadly their popularity is their downfall.:(

    It is a shame to be honest, I'm surprised at how many Staffie's I have seen in these home's though

    Quick question. The people that work at the Dog's homes are they all volunteers as not many seem to be open past 5, would of thought in the week especially they would stay open maybe 1 night till 7 or 8?

    Depends which rescue you go to. Stray kennels such as Sunnyside, Birmingham Dogs Home etc are paid workers due to their job and dealing with the amount of dogs that they do.

    Generally, smaller rescues are all voluntary. Rosedene are, and pretty sure Ruff Luck are too. Most rescues do close at 5pm, not only so staff and volunteers can get home and aren't overworked, but also so the dogs have a cut off point and can have their own time. It must be confusing for the poor things having people walk past all the time, and so it would be stressful if this was to happen at all hours.

    Yeah I get what you mean, just would of thought 1 day in the week they would have a late night where the close at 7 or 8 that way people would go after work. Hopefully will be popping to Rosedene Rescue on Wednesday, saw a couple of dogs I may be interested in and would like to see them and hopefully talk to someone in a bit more detail

    That's great, we'll see you then!
    You can also walk any dogs that you are interested in to get to know them better yourself. Obviously dogs act differently in the kennel to out.

    We too have personal experience of CAARS (Carers Anonymous Animal Refuge Sanctuary Charity Registration No. 1147495) Having VOLUNTEERED at this exceptional PRO LIFE Refuge Sanctuary for a number of years, we can say with great clarity and the uttermost certainty that none of what is written above bears the slightest resemblance to FACT(I would go as far as to say that it may represent a serious libel on this organisations good name). CAARS do have a number of Veterinarian practices to care for,examine,vaccinate and provide any necessary treatment arising. The animals are neutered where recommended notwithstanding CAARS PRO LIFE stance and Micro Chipping is available to those who choose this concept.Carers Anonymous Animal Refuge Sanctuary DO NOT purchase puppies ,kittens or any animals to "sell on" they in fact expend considerable expense upon the location and rescue of puppies, kittens, cats, and dogs from far and wide, only recently taking a large number of dogs from a failed sanctuary in Romania, these poor loving trusting creatures would certainly not have seen Christmas had it not been for CAARS efforts to bring them safely to CAARS sanctuary for re-homing. CAARS is a Registered Charity open to the public for scrutiny 7 days a week throughout the year, CAARS records are open for all to see, it is very wrong and disingenuous of people to slander the name of such a genuine establishment which reflects upon the hardworking VOLUNTEERS who work long and hard in their efforts to help distressed animals, for little reward except to see lives saved and unwanted pets re homed to kind and caring new owners. Hope this puts the record straight, kindest regards Kerry and Arran, for the CAARS TEAM.

    Why is the above post double posted under 2 different usernames (both only just joined) and why have you suddenly picked up a post from 1.5 years ago???

    Other than wanting to cause problems???
