Algarkirk's Jerry Green Dog Rescue are looking to find a home for Ozzy and Sydney in time for Christmas
Staff at The Jerry Green Dog Rescue are hoping to find a new home for the beautiful Ozzy and Sydney.
Sydney and Ozzy are both active dogs who love to spend their day walking and exploring through the fields. While little Sydney looks small she certainly has the speed of a greyhound! She loves to run and play chase games in our enclosed Paddock area. Ozzy tries his very best to keep up with her and often isn’t too far behind.
These delightful pair is looking for a home where someone is around for most of the day. They could potentially live with older children pending successful introductions at the centre and are looking to be the only pets in the home.
Sydney can be initially shy at first and a little wary of new situations so if looking for a new owner that understands this. She loves her food and works really well for treats.
Ozzy loves any lap that he can climb up on you – he can make himself fit anywhere that will give him a good bum scratch!
Think you could offer these lovely little guys their forever home in time for Christmas? Please contact us South Lincs on 01205 260546.
The team would like to say a big thank you to Jessie.
She is currently working towards a badge for 1st Kirton Brownies but went that step further by helping the dogs at the South Lincolnshire centre.
Jessie is making handmade dog treats that are delicious peanut butter, if you feel your dog needs a tasty treat this Halloween then if your quick you might still be able to pick up a bag or two!
She is selling bags of 20 for just £2.50 and will then be donating the money raised to the South Lincs Jerry Green Rescue.
Maya, Bobby and Poppy tested out the first batch of treats and were very impressed; they said they were the bets treats they have ever tasted.
We couldn’t be more appreciative that they decided to choose us as their charity to help, all of us here at the centre believe Jessie definitely deserves to receive her badge.

On Bonfire night it is likely we will either be wrapped up and watching the fireworks or inside with a warm drink by the fire. Although it’s a fun for us, our dogs may feel a little differently.
Loud bangs and sudden bright lights in the sky can scare our dogs, so here are some tips to try and keep them safe during the festivities:
- Walk your dogs in the daytime when fireworks are unlikely and make sure go out in the garden with them when you let them out for toilet breaks during quiet periods.
- Close the curtains after dark and put the TV on a high volume to muffle some of the sound from outside.
- Create a den for your dog to act as a safe space if they feel scared. Utilising a table, place blankets or sheets over the top to create “walls” and underneath you can provide her with soft bedding and cushions as well as some of their favourite toys and chews.
- If your dog does not want to utilise a den, allow them to find their own safe space. If they come to you for reassurance you can give them a fuss but if they take themselves away, give them space.
