Camelot - JRT X (Hertfordshire) CamSweetFace
Camelot (Cam for short) is a 14 year old Jack Russell Cross who came into our care after his owner died. Camelot was completely devoted to his owner and so he has found the transition to a new life very upsetting, poor lad. He is in an Oldies Club foster home in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, waiting for someone to offer him a permanent home. As his foster carer says “He needs to find a new home and a new owner to fall in love with“.

Taken time to settle: Camelot has been in his foster home for 4 weeks and is not completely settled, but he is improving all the time. Due to stress, he had some weeing accidents at first but this has gradually improved as he has settled and become familiar with his new routine. He is fine to be left at home alone though. His foster carers have left him for 3 or 4 hours and he doesn’t fret at all and just seems to sleep.

Excellent with dogs: Camelot is very good with other dogs in all situations including visiting their homes, out on walks and them visiting his home. He shows no signs of aggression and he seems to enjoy the company of other dogs so would be happy to live with other dogs.

Unknown with cats: Camelot isn’t used to living with cats and, as he has been upset by his change of circumstances it would probably be best if there were no cats in his new home.

Fine with well-behaved children: Camelot has been fine with his foster carers’ visiting grandchildren (aged 5 and 9) and seemed to enjoy watching them. He isn’t playful though so wouldn’t want to be a children’s play companion. He should be fine to live with children of 5 years and older, provided they aren’t allowed to pester him or pull him about.

Enjoys onlead strolls: Camelot has been enjoying 40-minute onlead strolls at a nice slow, sniffing pace. He stays on his extending lead because he has poor eyesight and hearing and so might get lost otherwise. He is as happy to walk around a residential area as the countryside, which is handy when it’s muddy. Most of the time, he doesn’t pull on the lead but can do a bit on the way home (expecting dinner!).

Doesn’t like the car: Camelot seems a bit stressed by cars and he barks, so he wouln’t want a home where he had to do lots of car travel.

Camelot’s favourite pastimes: Camelot loves to amble around the garden quite a few times a day. He really enjoys his walks. And he likes to sleep a lot.

Camelot’s dislikes: Camelot doesn’t like being man-handled too much – for example when the vet checks him out or when you lift him in and out of the car. His foster carer says: “He is his own dog and likes to be in control of his own movements! Having said that, he will sit next to you on the sofa with his head on your lap while you stroke him. So touching is OK; manhandling not! But he isn’t aggressive about it, he just does a sort of pretend nibble of your hands.”

Camelot’s perfect home: Camelot is obviously a sensitive lad so he will need owners that are happy to give him time to settle in very gradually. His foster carers say “He’d be happy in any sized family from a single person to a couple with children, preferably with experience of owning Jack Russells. Direct access to a garden is essential so an upper flat wouldn’t be suitable. A busy house would be fine if he has a quiet place of his own where he can observe but be undisturbed – he seems to like having things going on around him“.

Health notes: Camelot is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated. He has a few lumps but the vet has checked them and they are nothing to worry about. He isn’t on any medication and is in good health for his age. He has cataracts so can’t see in the dark. He also has plaque on his teeth but, as he doesn’t seem to have toothache or infected gums, the vet said that it was best leave them until he needs an anaesthetic for something else.

Foster carer’s summary of Camelot:
He’s a slow boy and doesn’t jump or run at all; he tends to amble about but trots a bit in the garden. He’s still quite unhappy and has taken being wrenched from his previous home life very badly. He often whines, howls or barks for a while in a way that seems like he is expressing unhappiness. We have found it frustrating that there seems to be nothing we can do to help him through this; he just needs time.

He is tolerant and doesn’t seem fazed by whatever is going on around him. He just sits and watches. He accepts other dogs or people of all ages and sizes. He is friendly and has never shown any sign of aggression towards ourselves, other people or dogs. He sometimes barks for a minute or two, mostly when he’s in the garden but sometimes indoors, so he wouldn’t be suitable in a noise-sensitive home.

He likes a bit of fuss now and then and will sit on the sofa next to you with his head on your lap. He enjoys his food but doesn’t steal food even when it is at his level.

Cam just needs a new owner to grow to love and then devote himself to unconditionally. Could you be Cam’s new person?

————-

If you can offer Cam a permanent home, 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

He 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.
