Jerry Jerry!! - Ridgeback X (Oxfordshire) Jerrysmiles
Jerry is a lovely big lad, who is thought to be a ridgeback cross. He is now in an Oldies Club foster home in Oxfordshire and has made himself at home straight away!

His foster carer describes him as a ball of love!

Jerry definitely needs to lose a few pounds and is working on his diet! He’s a laid back boy and the kennels where he stayed before moving to his foster home told us that he has a lovely nature. He could be a bit suspicious of new staff entering his kennel at first, but if they took a few minutes to make a fuss of him he was very quickly their best friend!

Jerry came into Oldies Club care with his friend Lady as an emergency case: their owner became ill and they were being left outside sometimes for days at a time because there was nobody able to care for them, so the Oldies Club moved them to kennels temporarily whilst suitable foster homes could be found for them.

We were told by his original owner that Jerry was about 12, but the kennels thought he was probably younger than this, more like 7. He has lived with another dog in the past and he seems unbothered by the other dogs he sees around at the kennels. We have no idea how he’d be with cats, and because of his size we wouldn’t want to place him with young children. Jerry is fully vaccinated and will be neutered before rehoming.

Can you offer this lovely boy a home?

If you are interested in Jerry, please refer to our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:

Email: rehome@oldies.org.uk
Telephone: 0844 586 8656

Jerry can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, subject to a satisfactory home visit, but note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet him.

An update on Jerry and new pics

Jerry Jerry!! - Ridgeback X (Oxfordshire) Jerrypeeking

Jerry moved into his foster home in Oxfordshire some months ago and he had no trouble making himself at home, as you can see from his photos! Here’s what his foster mum has to say about him…

You wouldn’t think it to look at him, but Jerry is the soppiest, lovable dog I have ever had the privilege of meeting. He loves being around people and having kisses and cuddles, but he isn’t pushy about it - just a subtle paw on your knee every now and again. Be aware though, if he sleeps upstairs he likes to be under the duvet on your legs!

On his walks he pulls like a small train to begin with, but after 10-15 minutes he settles down. He does love his walks and come wind, rain, snow or ice he gets really excited when his lead comes out. He’s currently being walked about 3-4 miles a day to try to burn off his excess weight. He’s ok off lead, but his recall does need some work as he tends to get distracted by his surroundings. Recall training shouldn’t be too much of a problem though as he’s very intelligent and he does love his treats.

Jerry has been left alone with my own dogs for 3-4 hours at a time without any problems. He really loves having company though, so I think he’d much prefer a home with someone who can be around most of the time.

I haven’t had an opportunity to see him in close proximity to cats, but he does pull towards any he sees on walks. I therefore think he’d be better suited to a cat-free home.

Jerry is good with other calm and steady dogs, but he will get angry with boisterous ones if they get too bouncy or pushy around him. He used to be very possessive over his food, toys and sometimes any people he was sat close to. This has been corrected now, but it is something for any potential owner to be aware of.

Jerry was overweight when he first arrived and I have found the “Burns High Oats” diet to be the most effective. I feel that he could probably still lose a few more pounds, but at his last weigh in he was 45kgs and the vet says this is his ideal weight.

Jerry seems to be okay travelling in the car now. He was sick once or twice at first, but this hasn’t happened since so I think he may be getting used to it.

The lucky person who offers Jerry a forever home will have an infinite supply of love, kisses, cuddles and affection. What more could any one want?

We're estimating him to be around 7. Hes definately nowhere near the 12 years old we were told when we took him in. We were also told he was entire but his fosterer found him to be missing equipment when he rolled over lol.
