Eddie & Daisy Very Special Story Need Special Home


Stroud, Gloucestershire

Pet Description


If you would like to contribute to their vet bill and their future medication for the next 12 months which can go with them when we find their forever home our PAYPAL address is starfishdogrescue@hotmail.co.uk it would be appreciated.

UPDATE: Have spoken to Daisy & Eddie's vets they are 16 not 14 !!! their date of birth is January 1999 - money was left in vets accounts to have both these dogs destroyed but they have refunded the money back to themselves. Both these dogs have been with their owner since tiny puppies - they have been well looked after by their owners have been boosted every year, received regular vet treatment both have been loved cherished pets. They have suffered neglect at the boarding kennels where they have been boarded, lost half their body weight probably because they were just given biscuits which with their teeth they would find difficult. Its taken two days for them to start de stressing, sleeping and eating properly they are now starving eating well and on four small meals a day. Little Daisy is blind and deaf we think but is settling but taking longer than Eddie who is like a pig in s***t, and is even playing with toys.

We have helped a lot of dogs over the years that other rescues would not help for various reason or were difficult to rehome ie their age, disabilities etc and always been very successful in finding them amazing forever homes. These two wee souls will be our biggest challenge yet but we could not ignore their plight which was desperate and they were not ready to leave this world yet - somebody probably their mummy and daddy in heaven were looking down of them and made sure they were safe.

The reason they will be hard to home is their age they are 16 years old brother and sister and they are inseparable they cannot be split up so we need an earth angel to see this and I am sure there is someone who was meant to offer them their home and heart. They have been together and their family since puppies so have never known any other family.

Starfish will before they leave us get everything done medically and has started a fund raiser as there will obviously not be an adoption fee like usual which helps and often covers the vet fees, we want to be able to provide to who ever adopts them at least for 12 months the medications they need which we are hoping will help secure them a forever home for what ever time they have left.

Our next job will be to start looking for their forever home - most people know their story but will tell in a shorten version. Eddie & Daisy have been with their family since puppies unfortunately 2 years ago their mummy died. November this year their daddy went on holiday and left them in boarding kennels - he unfortunately got ill and was hospitalized. The dogs were left in the kennels. Last week their daddy passed away and his son ordered the destruction of the dogs the same day. Fortunate for them an angel who walked dogs for this kennels managed to get a reprieve for a few days and contacted as many rescues as possible most did not have space and most did not even bother replying. We could not get these little souls out of mind that first horrible picture we were sent from the kennel which you can see in their montage we could not get out of our minds. Knew it would be a tough one but their plight had made their way to us for a reason. They arrived very smelly, dirty, skinny and stressed out of their heads. As you can see from the videos they started to calm down, its still early days and they are going to struggle with the change at their age.

I bath them both and then we had cuddles on the sofa for the afternoon while we waited for their foster family to come and get them and they never showed any aggression at all just sweet souls, Eddie was the first to calm down and show his lovely side, poor little Daisy the frailer one of the two struggled more. They are in foster care currently with two other terriers and are fine although Eddie if challenged will stick up for himself. No cats he tried to chase my cat.

So who is this person who will take on these two little souls for what time they have left - it may only be 12 months to 2 years it may be longer - they have very obviously been loved all their life and this last 4 months has been hell for them, they are in a very neglected state, sad and confused. We will give them everything they need but they need a forever home as soon as possible so we can save other little souls like these guys.

These two babies need to re homed together its not an option to split them so please do not ask, they love the garden and both are still very sprightly for their age and will be even better once they have put weight on. I am hoping there is a earth angel out there who will see this and think they are maybe perfect for a lonely relative with a secure garden who is too old to consider another dog but missing the company - I am sure their mummy & daddy are looking down from heaven and know who this person is and we so look forward to hearing from you.

Home checks apply as always - please email us starfishdogrescue@hotmail.co.uk

Will continue to update their progress and their profile.

Important Checklist for adopting or buying a Jack Russell
Before making contact, or planning a visit for this Jack Russell puppy or dog, please make sure you have considered all the points made on the below checklist. We advise that you DO NOT buy a puppy or dog from the advertiser unless you are happy that you can tick off every point on this list and are confident that the advertiser is genuine.  If you have any concerns over an advertiser please report them to us.

Research first
The fact that you’re considering adopting, or buying a new puppy or dog is an important decision and one that should not be taken lightly. Your new pet will solely rely on you in many ways, so it's important that you’re 100% committed before hand. You can do further reading about caring for dogs and their wellbeing in our pet advice section. You can also find out more information about the Jack Russell dog breed by visiting the Jack Russell Dog Breed Information.

Is the advertiser genuine?
Confirm that the advertiser is genuine. You can do this by arranging a visit with the potential advertisers home, if they try to avoid you visiting, or make excuses, then you should be concerned. If the advertiser asks for money, or deposit to be paid online without you visiting the dog at their home, or they request to meet you somewhere or drop the dog off at yours, then please DO NOT agree. We advise that you should never send money online. If you’re concerned about an advertisers authenticity then please report them to us.

Mypetzilla conducts various checks on advertisers on this site, but are unable to confirm that all are genuine. So please make sure you visit the advertiser at their home and verify this yourself.

The advertiser should let you see the puppy with their mother and in some circumstances their father as well. If the puppy is shown without their mother, then this can indicate that they've 

been breed by the advertiser and or possibly imported. If the advertiser makes excuses as to why you can't see the mother, we advise that you immediately walk away.

Check the puppy is over 8 weeks of age
Before bringing your beloved puppy home, it's important that the puppy is over 8 weeks of age and has been properly weaned before they leave their mothers. Some sellers will keep the puppy longer than this and this is perfectly fine.

Health check of the puppy or dog
It is very important that you check the health of your puppy or dog before you decide to adopt or buy. Although this can be difficult, most sellers will agree that you can return the puppy or dog within 48 hours should they have any health issues. It's worth taking your puppy or dog to the vet for a health check as soon as you take them home. The seller should be willing for you to do this. If the puppy has already had a health check by the seller’s veterinary practice, then they should provide you with the legitimate paperwork to support this. It is also worth ringing the vet to confirm everything beforehand.

Check the puppy or dog is up-to-date with their vaccinations
All puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first between 8-10 weeks of age and the 2nd vaccination 2 weeks later around the age of 10-12 weeks. Older dogs may also need booster vaccinations and this is normally recommended by the vet.  It's important that you check with the seller what vaccinations the puppy or dog has had. It's worth noting that puppies should have had their first vaccination before they leave their mother.  If the seller has not provided a vaccination plan, then it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside.

Have the puppies had treatment for worms and fleas?
Puppies should be wormed at the age of 2 weeks and again around 5 weeks old. Before the puppy leaves the seller, they should have had more worming treatment at 8 to 12 weeks of age.

Ask questions about the puppies mother
It's worth asking the seller how old the mother is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. How many litters she has had. How is the mother's temperament. All these questions are important for the future health of your dog and the seller should want to tell you everything about the puppies mother.

Are the puppies socialised?
It's necessary that the puppies have interacted well with their puppy litter and have been raised in a home environment around other adults, children, and general household life. Puppies that don't receive this kind of training and development from a young age, may go on to develop behavioral problems later in their life and become difficult to train.  They may likely develop temperament issues and will find it difficult to adjust to family life.

Is the puppy/dog registered with the Kennel Club?
If the puppy or dog has been registered with the Kennel club, then you must check that you’ve been given the correct documentation before you take the puppy/dog home. It's worth considering to check the documentation and phoning the Kennel Club to verify the registration.

Check the puppy or dog is Microchipped
From the 6th April 2016, it is required by Law that all dogs over 8 weeks of age are micro chipped and that the seller's details are registered in their name and are kept up-to-date. The breeder is responsible for microchipping the puppies and must have all the correct information updated on the database before they are adopted or bought. You must make sure you receive the microchip documentation with the chip number and then arrange to change the microchip details into your name. You can find out more information about this by visiting our puppy and dog Microchipping article.

Considering the pet insurance costs
Insuring your puppy or dog is one of the most important decisions you should make when bringing your beloved puppy home. Veterinary fees can become extremely expensive and it's important that you have the correct level of cover beforehand. We recommend that you research pet insurance providers and purchase the correct level of cover. Most polices will allow you to start the cover the day your puppy or dog arrives to their new home. Please check our pet insurance section for further information.

For further information please make sure to visit our Pet Advice section. However here are a few helpful dog related articles which we recommend you read before making a decision to adopt or buy a puppy:
