View Full Version : HOMED: Male blenheim 7-ish

22nd June 2007, 01:53 PM
I will likely have an older male CKCS seeking a new home. Currently in the Dublin area but can travel elsewhere in Ireland. :) As soon as I get further details I will post.

22nd June 2007, 07:46 PM
Here he is! A VERY handsome blenheim; his name is Trix:



He was rescued from a bad situation nearly four years ago -- sounds like he was a puppy farm stud dog as he was in poor shape, afraid of people and didn't know what to make of the inside of a house. :( Now he is very obviously a house dog and is good with adults and children.

His current owner clearly keeps him in fantastic condition, as you can see from his pictures. However work now will require him to travel frequently and he needs to rehome Trix.

Please PM me if you are interested or post here, if you would like to offer this fellow a retirement home. :)

May also need a foster on this one; not sure yet.

I can take him as a foster if necessary.

22nd June 2007, 09:39 PM
Thanks Brid, I have another foster offer as well so you are OK on this one. :)

Has this beauitful boy got an home yet ----Aileen and the gang (Jazzie--Barney--Sam)

25th June 2007, 12:56 PM
I only just got his information so am only just starting to sarch for a home. I will post when he finds it! This little guy would be a great companion for someone older, or as a second dog for someone in Ireland. :)

27th June 2007, 10:47 AM
I'll check with my husband but I am interested. We have one
3-month old and he is a bit lonely while we are away working, he needs a friend. Does Trix still need a home?

27th June 2007, 04:52 PM
He does. If you are interested, and you haven't yet sent me an application (I think you might have?) go here to the Introduction section yo download one:


and email in back to me just letting me know in an email that this is for Trix! He looks like a really lovely dog.


29th June 2007, 11:27 AM
Yes, I did. I'll send you a private message

29th June 2007, 01:23 PM
I'll come back to you -- getting some more info.

29th June 2007, 03:08 PM
Grand, thanks!

2nd July 2007, 01:58 PM
Any luck with homing this man.

2nd July 2007, 02:33 PM
He has a couple of possibilities. :)

Oh good nice to hear----Aileen and the gang (Jazzie--Barney---Sam)

17th July 2007, 05:17 PM
From speaking with the owner I believe this dog is younger than initially stated -- probably more like 7 (he was guessing 8-9 but that seems too old going by the story of his background and his appearance). I need to get this dog into foster this week and have PM'd one person but he also is in need of a home still.

17th July 2007, 07:27 PM
Hubby and me said if you get stuck will foster till you find good home.

hope u can sort this lil man out poor thing!

17th July 2007, 10:36 PM
Going to a board member for foster some time this week. :)

17th July 2007, 10:40 PM
That's great news!! Hope something gets worked out soon for this adorable guy!! :lotsaluv:

17th July 2007, 10:43 PM
Ahhhhh thats great news.

20th July 2007, 10:19 AM
Any news Karlin? He looks so sweet :lotsaluv:

20th July 2007, 04:59 PM
Being fostered to a board member in next few days, and we will see how he does there. :)

20th July 2007, 05:01 PM
Oh my what a beautiful wise looking old guy. Kind of a worried look in that first pic. I hope he finds a great home soon.

20th July 2007, 10:44 PM
Hi everyone,
I haven't posted before but have been a member of the board for a while. I am fostering Trix and hopefully he will be very happy with us. I believe from chatting to his current owner that he is a gorgeous dog and very good with children - I have a three year old daughter who is very excited about him - I have shown her his picture and she has responded by renaming all her toy animals Trix! He is coming to stay with us tomorrow and we are soooo excited! I will let you all know how he is settling in and will try to post some lovely pictures of him playing in our garden ! Any advice is welcome on how to introduce him to my daughter! So fingers crossed that he settles in well and that I can give him a lovely home :luv: Very excited about his arrival tomorrow - we will probably be up early waiting for him to arrive here:D

20th July 2007, 10:48 PM
Congrats Lilly and best of luck. Trix looks like a fine pup. Just supervise play with Trix for your daughter. Show her how to be gentle. Enjoy Trix!! Look forward to pics and stories.

21st July 2007, 07:15 PM
I'm glad he's arrived now! Maybe start a new thread in the main section of the board and let us know how he is doing and get a picture if you can! :) Also people will be more likely to see the thread there, if you have any questions you want to ask for advice. Thanks so much for taking him in. As long as you can tell the 'real' Trix from all the toy Trixes you'll do fine... :lol:

23rd July 2007, 11:52 AM
This fellow needs to be in a foster spot with grown children or adults only -- toddlers aren;t the right mix for this gentleman. I need a foster spot where he can go and stay while he is neutered. I think I have a home for him but he likely needs a week or 10 day foster, if anyone can take him?

Won't be able to Karlin as I'm heading to Donegal. Sorry.:(

23rd July 2007, 01:07 PM
Karlin i have pm u.

24th July 2007, 06:14 PM
Trix is seeking an adult or older-children home where he can spend his retirement years. He is a friendly, outgoing dog. Trix finds very small children a little too overwhelming to live with so he is in search of an indoor home where he will get plenty of walks and loving! PM me if you are interested; homing applications are in the 'Introduction' section of my website, www.ckcsrescue.com

6th August 2007, 07:50 PM
I have PM'd you.:)

Hi Brid thanks this fella is with me until a home can be found for him. Who ever gets Trix is going to be very lucky as he is such a great guy. If i didnt have my 4 i would easily become a failed fosterer. :)

7th August 2007, 11:11 AM
I'm interested in giving Trix a permanent home, but until I come back from hols on 1 st september, I'm not in a position to take on any dog right now.
However If he's still available at that time, he'd have a very happy life in East Cork and daisy would have a companion.

You need to apply to Karlins rescue site for this. Best of luck.

8th August 2007, 10:12 PM
Hi ,
A friend of mine has applied to adopt Trix through Irish Cavalier Rescue , she loves Heidi and Nifa and when I told her about Trix she decided to apply . Hope she is successful look forward to welcoming Trix to Kilkenny.

9th August 2007, 03:33 AM
This guy now has several applications that will be taken in order of receipt. The first option is to a couple in Dublin not on the board, who expressed interest just before I left for Korea so I will be speaking to them first and doing a homecheck with them once I am back (I return Saturday). No all homes that apply work out however -- it may be that the dog really wouldn't quite suit the applicant or people change their mind after having time to think -- so all possibilities are open.

There are always more dogs coming in and aften slightly older dogs that really need loving homes so I hope the applicants will keep an eye out ad of course I do retain applications while I wait for a good match to come in. :)

If someone off-board applies, be sure to always have them indicate the connection with someone here etc -- it really helps me to know there are these connections and I also really need them noted in the application.

I need to change the applications a bit to better accommodate this type of question too. :)

Sounds like everythings working out for Trix, great news :D

11th August 2007, 03:48 PM
Trix as i have said before is a great dog. :D If any dog deserves a chance he is it.

13th August 2007, 03:36 PM
This fellow may need foster again. One home that applied has visiting very small children so this is not the right dog for that situation; as noted he is not generally comfortable with toddlers. I have not yet heard back from the couple who are first on the list though am hoping they will quickly get in touch if they remain interested in him :xfngr: ; however Trix may need to be in a new foster place around Wednesday.

If anyone can manage him, please let me know.

brid kenny
13th August 2007, 04:41 PM
I can take him.

17th August 2007, 04:58 PM
Thanks Brid for short term foster. :flwr: Trix has a new home and should be there on the weekend. :)

17th August 2007, 05:17 PM
if he needs transport or anyting give me a call!

21st August 2007, 01:01 AM
Trix is settling into his new home really well. We all love him to bits and he is so friendly and well behaved. He LOVES his walks aswell. He waits patiently at the door for us to bring him out. We couldn't have asked for such a sweeter and affectionate dog. We collected him on saturday and he is settling in so well it seems like he's been here forever. He got microchipped today and once he was in the vets he didn't want to leave!! Thanks to karlin, brid, sallymum and everyone else who helped Trix. He's a brillent addition to the family. Here are some pictures of him.







Lelia and Fidelma:D

Trix looks so happy. He has such a sweet face :luv:

I'm glad he is settling in so well.

21st August 2007, 10:12 AM
I am so happy that Trix is finally settled he is such a great dog and as i said earlier if any dog deserves happiness he is it.

21st August 2007, 10:36 AM
So pleased

He looks great and sooo happy. Delighted to see. Brid.

21st August 2007, 02:54 PM
I fixed the tags so people can see the pics (you had clicked to make them links rather than display pics :)).

He looks wonderful -- so delighted he is fitting in so well! I see he has already taken over a couch. :lol:

25th August 2007, 08:48 AM
Well done Trix. Looks like you landed on all 4 paws!!
