    Default 12 mths Male~Lincolnshire

    Bracken (scroll down the page)

    Every Chance Rescue




    Bracken is less than a year old and already he has been let down by humans!

    Bracken is with Every Chance as he told his last owner off when she went to grab things off him. Bracken is doing just fine in his new foster home with the help of a Dog Listener but we will need his new carers to continue with this when Bracken is adopted.

    Bracken has lived with other dogs and does love to play so another calm and confident playmate would be great for him.

    hia i applied for Bracken way back in jan,i had home& work check etc after a long wait. the people here insist on you following their training methods to the letter & would be they said in almost daily contact for the rest of the dogs life,to the point where if in the case of old age the vet recommended PTS you still had to discuss this with them 1st,when they said they might take the dog back if it was in the dogs interests. i eventually found out we didnt get bracken as they felt there could be food issues between him&my girl as i had said when asked about other dogs we see regularly that 1 of her doggy friends, Brodie had pinched her dentistick on a visit here & rubes had just let him. im sorry if this sounds bad i am trying not to be critical& for all i know this could all be common practise with rescue places

    It would be a bit excessive to insist on constantly overseeing every aspect of training. This sounds like perfectly common food guarding and is usually
    pretty easy to train away from so I am not sure why, once a good home is chosen, there wouldn't be a level of trust that he'd get along fine.

    It would be a shame for a dog not to be rehomed due to micromanaging by a rescue. On the other hand the rescue may not feel it has spoken to quite the right home yet for this dog. Severe food guarding where the dog has snapped can be a real issue and such a dog would not suit all homes. Basic, pleasant positive training as a puppy eliminates this problem ever even starting so it is a shame someone didn't work with him from the start.

    Hope he finds a home.

    Having read their adoption information I think their name "every chance" is a little misleading. Many people including myself I believe would be put off by their apparently overbearing attitude, a bit like big brother is watching you.

    Poor Bracken I hope that he does get the chance of a nice home.

    Although I totally respect any rescue's right (and obligation) to ensure the long-term welfare of dogs they have rehomed, I would not feel comfortable or relaxed with constant contact/supervision from any rescue.

    Just my humble opinion .

    I also asked about this gorgeous boy, and it is correct about the training and contact with the rescue. They want this training to follow the Jan Fennel to a T!

    im also not suitable

    I've followed this dog on another forum and I don't think you're alone.
