    Hi.

    I have just registered here because I am looking for a dog to join our family. Actually my wife and I.

    We life in High Wycombe, Bucks and are looking for a dog to no matter what breed.
    He or she needs to be good around dogs and house-trained. That is all we are asking for.

    We have had a look around the Dogstrust here in Harefield but could over the past weeks find any dog that wanted to adopt.

    I am working from home and have lot of time to train the dog.

    So if you have a dog to rehome you think would be of interest please get in touch.

    Thanks.

    Fabian

    if you are interested in a rottie there was one looking for a home in a thread called "need loving home a.s.a.p" you could see if they are still looking for a home.

    Thanks everyone for the replies so far.

    We are ideally looking for a smaller dog (max medium size) and not a power breed.

    I am walking a power breed cross at my local dog rescue but he would be to powerful for our lifestyle I believe. Stokenchurch Dog Rescue

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Fabian

    Have you had a look in Binfield Dog Rescue yet? They're based in Wokingham which i don't think is too far?

    They have a couple of Greyhound crosses and quite a lot of staffy crosses, and a few other larger breeds. From their site they are very keen to have people come and walk their dogs. Good luck!

    Thanks everyone for the great information. :)

    I will have a look at the different links and keep everyone updated.

    @r_neupert: MK meaning Milton Keynes? No but close. High Wycombe.

    Aaaaah! Well done - fantastic you've taken a Staffie on too - they need a helping hand right now. You must keep us updated on his progress!

    I'm off to RR tomorrow to meet Rodney and Bobby with the view to foster one. Taking my bulldozer/dog to see if she gets on with either, she better be on her best behaviour!!
