DUKE is a fabulous 4yr old American Bulldog who is looking for a home because of a change in circumstances & his previous owners' can no longer keep him.Typical of this breed, he is a Big Friendly Giant & is bouncy & very energetic. He loves people of all sizes, although we feel he may be too much for very young children as he will be likely to bowl them over with his enthusiasm & we feel he would be best suited to a young, active family. He is great with other dogs, but will not tolerate cats, and he seems ok with livestock. Duke will need a well fenced garden, and he will also require plenty of exercise & mental stimulation, so a family with someone home quite a lot. He will also bond strongly with his new owners & become a very faithful family member. Duke just loves people & having his tummy tickled!

Changes to dog breeding laws will come into force in Wales on April 30th 2015, in a bid to tackle irresponsible breeding.
Puppies cannot leave their mothers until they are at least 56 days (8 weeks) old.
Under new regulations passed by the Welsh Government, licensed breeders will be required to show how they will give their dogs environmental enrichment and how they will socialise their puppies.
From April 30, 2015, license holders must ensure breeding bitches do not give birth to more than one litter in a 12 month period, and do not produce more than six litters in their lifetime.
Bitches must be at least a year old before they can have a litter.
In addition, anyone keeping three or more breeding bitches at their premises, and/or anyone who breeds three or more litters within any 12 month period, must hold a breeding license.

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.
