ENZO is a 7yr old Labrador-X who is very sad at being in kennels. He is a people friendly boy & wants nothing more than to have a family to call his own, & a comfy sofa to curl-up on. He loves his food & playing with his toys & will give paw when asked. Enzo is not good with other dogs or cats, so he will need to be an only dog & a cat-free home. He has lived with children but we feel he would be best in a home with older children & he will enjoy lots of walks & playtime.

MANCHESTER DOGS' HOME FIRE
ARC sent a donation to Manchester Dogs' home after the terrible fire on September 11th. Below is their response:
To: All our generous friends at ARC.
Thank you is not enough!
The level of generosity & support we have received has been over & above anything we could have anitcipated.
The tragic events of Thursday 11th September have touched everyone & we want to make sure that we say thank you to every person we are able to.
Please accept this letter as our official receipt for you kind & generous donation of £50.
Due to the level of support we have received it is going to be difficult for us to update everyone individually, please keep an eye on our website www.dogshome.net, our Facebook & our Twitter feeds.
We are committed to ensuring something positive comes out of the tragedy & we will update you through these pages as much as we can.
On behalf of the Trustees, the staff & most importantly - the dogs
THIS CHANGE IN THE LAW COMES INTO
FORCE ON MONDAY 20th OCTOBER 2014
Dog owners who allow their pets to snarl at strangers, threaten postal workers, damage garden fences or aggressively chase cats will face fines of up to £2,500 or have their animals taken away under laws that come into force on Monday (20th October 2014)
Police, council officials and social housing landlords will be able to issue community protection notices, or “dogbos”, to force the owners of nuisance animals to take steps to control their behaviour.
Measures could include attending behavioural classes, keeping their dogs muzzled or on a leash, strengthening garden fencing, or having their animals neutered or microchipped.
Owners who do not comply with an order will face a £100 on-the-spot fine or criminal prosecution, with a maximum fine of £2,500, or up to £20,000 for businesses using guard dogs.
The measures are contained in the Dealing With Irresponsible Dog Ownership: Practitioner’s Manual and are part of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
Legal changes were made earlier this year to permit prosecutions for a dog attack on private property. Maximum prison sentences were increased from two years to 14 years for a fatal dog attack; from two to five years for injury; and three years for an attack on an assistance dog.
We now have an AMAZON wish list.

to take effect from 29 December 2014:
Please check with DEFRA or www.gov.uk
On March 1st 2015 – it will be compulsory for ALL dogs in Wales to be microchipped (England in 2016).
Throughout 2014 the Dogs’ Trust are running free microchipping events in both Wales & England. See their website for more information on where & when these events will be taking place.
Participating vets will also be offering this service. Visit the following website for details of which vet practices are in the scheme. www.chipmydog.org.uk/participating-vets/

There is no limit to the number of dogs that you can have chipped on this scheme, and the offer only applies to dogs & NOT cats. (Most rescues & vets will chip your cat for a small fee)

COULD YOU OFFER A HOME TO A RESCUE DOG WHILE WE FIND ITS' FOREVER HOME ?
We are looking for dog-friendly people to join our band of dedicated fosterers to foster our rescue dogs, so that they can learn to live in a home environment instead of kennels. We will always be available for any back up should it be required, and will carry out a home check prior to you fostering the dog.
A sad fact of life is that dogs do go missing from time to time. By having an ID tag on your dog's collar stating your name, address and telephone number, you can save your dog the unnecessary stress of a pound visit. It will also keep you on the right side of the law, as even if your dog is microchipped, your dog is required to wear an ID tag when in a public place. Failure to do so can result in up to a £5,000 fine! Stray dogs can only be picked up by dog wardens, NOT the police or rescues so the first person to contact if you've lost your dog (or if you find a stray dog) is your local dog warden.
Although it is not yet a legal requirement (except as required by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991), it is always a good idea to have your dog micro-chipped with its own unique identification number. This way you can be traced quickly and your dog returned safe and sound.
Under Section 2 of the Control of Dogs Order 2002, every dog on a highway or in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on it or on a plate or badge attached to it. Failure to do so is an offence against the Animal Health Act 1981 for which an owner can be prosecuted and fined.
Any dog without a collar on a highway or in a public place may be treated as a stray dog and seized by the Local Authority.
If your dog strays, you should contact your local dog warden (through the Environmental Health Department of your Local Authority) immediately and stay in regular contact. If your dog is found by the Local Authority, you must pay the Local Authority's reasonable expenses before it will be returned to you.
If after seven days, the owner of the stray dog does not come forward, the Local Authority may transfer the dog to someone else, transfer it to an establishment for stray dogs ( or in some areas, have it destroyed ).
If you are the finder of a stray dog you must either return it to its owner immediately or take it to your Local Authority. If you want to keep the stray dog, you must provide your name and address to the Local Authority and keep the dog for a period of not less than one month.
NB. Under Section 27(5) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is a criminal offence to have a dog on a designated road without the dog being on a lead.
