Title: An 18 month Bullie boy Fayo - Foal Farm, Kent
Post by: Ruth on October 07, 2012, 10:29:31 pm
We have been asked to help find a little bullie boy a home. He is currently at FOAL farm in Biggin Hill, Kent. He is 18 months old and had a factured leg which has healed nicely and needs no further medical attention. He can be a bit mouthy at first but soon stopped after a sharp 'No'. He pulls on a lead so this will require some work. He is a typical young energetic bullie that is going stir crazy in kennels. He would be a different dog with long walks, a loving family and some training.

A handsome boy that is very food oriented so can easily be trained with food as an aid.He has the usual toy obsession for a kennelled bullie and it is really just for attention.

He needs a bullie experienced home, as he needs to be taught a few manners. As he still puppy 'mouths' I would reccomend a home with teenagers or older only. He cannot live with cats (or any small furries) but with careful slow introduction and some boundaries being set he could probably live with a bullie bitch or a a larger breed as he is probably too full on for a smaller dog.

FOALfarm would prefer this boy is homed in the Southern Counties (Essex, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, London) and you are welcome to visit and get to know him.

Can anyone offer this energetic unruly boy a chance to develop into a loving, family dog?

If you feel you can offer Fayo a chance then either contact FOAL farm direct:

Sad news, he couldn't cope so Fayo is looking for a home once more.

He needs patient, very switched on Bullie people. He's been working with our behaviourist in the potential home but his level of bounce just didn't calm down and the gentleman couldn't cope.

Please could you continue to have him on your site and send any enquiries our way?

Thank you

Mary

Post by: gilly on February 01, 2013, 04:03:03 pm
He sounds just like our last ebt was when we got him at 13 months old and he turned out to be an excellent dog after some hard work and training. Sadly he died aged 14 years old in November so we are now looking for another rescue dog (ebt) and would love to help but unfortunately we live in County Durham which is 5 hours away. He looks and sounds the ideal bull terrier and I cant believe he's still there after 4 months, if only we were a bit closer.
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: Ruth on February 01, 2013, 04:12:52 pm
Well that is a shame Gilly - I have been to visit him and he pulls like a steam engine, he cannot concentrate for long on anything you say to him because he is just so excited to be out, he snatches treats until you remind him your fingers are attached but despite all of this, if you know bull terriers, you will recognise a lovely happy dog that is just desperate for attention, new experiences and love.

However as we all know it is a long hard path to get past that initial stage and then to enjoy the beautiful fun loving, affectionate dogs they will become.

Novice bull terrier owners are put off by his initial over the top behaviour.  :(
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: gilly on February 01, 2013, 04:28:49 pm
he sounds exactly our last one we are racking our brains how to get him , do you think he would be ok in the car for 5 hours ? ( toilet stops obviously ) or are the kennels set on him being homed local?, someone is going to be so lucky to have him .
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: Ruth on February 01, 2013, 04:32:52 pm
Try approaching Foal farm direct, fill in their online application form and in the 'other information' box at the end tell them you are interested and an experienced owner, say you saw him on the bull terrier trust site.

They do homechecks so if they will only do local, let me know and I will talk to them to see if they will allow a BTT homecheck.

Hi, just to give you an update on Fayo. Foal Farm Kennels have been in touch with us and were very helpful and honest. Because of his naughty nature they would prefer Fayo to  meet his prospective new owners several times so they can observe how they are with him and how Fayo is with them and to hopefully build up a relationship. We think this is very fair and responsible of them. This is not practical for us as we live 6 hours away and maybe our hearts were ruling our heads so unfortunately Fayo won't be heading north with us.
Thank you all for your messages, we too will be following Fayo's progress and wish him a lovely home soon.
We will keep looking nearer home.
Gilly and Trev

Oh.....such a shame....thankyou for letting us know gilly and terry.....how dissapointing.....but i suppose they have their reasons.......like you say they are being fair and  responsible ...but it is what is meant to be.....for him and for you.....hopefuly someone like youreselves nearer home for them will come along and make fayos dream come true.....he really is a cheeky little monkey....isnt he! Well we have plenty that need forever homes and i know Ruth will be there for you to help you find the bullie for you........we really do have some desperatley needing a forever home.....speak to Ruth.Godd luck in finding youe bullie....keep up the postings and let us know how your getting on.........a lovely bullie is waitng for you to make their dreams comes true ;D
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: Ruth on February 05, 2013, 09:12:56 pm
That is a shame indeed - Fayo desperately needs an experienced home environment to learn some manners in.  :(

I do understand where Foal Farm are coming from though. Poor Fayo went to a prospective home, they had come to visit him several times. They picked him up and two hours later he was back! He had gone to their home, spotted the fish pond in the garden, dive bombed into it to chase the fishes he could see moving, leapt out then charged indoors and did a bullie run round the front room, smashed the TV by sending it flying off it's stand, whilst trailing water everywhere...... Now an experienced Bullie owner would have made allowances for a young energetic bullie coming out of kennels and would have taken him for a looong walk BEFORE taking him home, then taken him around the house on a lead, fed him and shown him his bed!
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: the Londons on February 06, 2013, 04:25:30 am
Couldnt agree with you more Ruth.....Gosh what fayo did doesnt sound like anything a Bullie WOULDNT do............they mustnt forget he has been in kennels a long while.....and he felt it was great to escape for a bit.........exceitment.....nerves and fayos temperement and clownish ways are all part of his character....and like you said....a nice long walk would have got that out of him and he would have been a bit calmer........if youre going to take on one of our lovely bullies.....you wouldnt expect anything less!!!! It really is such a shame that they could not make an exception in this case as gilly is experienced and is willing to travel all that way.....she could spend the day with him.....well look at us Wtih Toddy......we only had a few hours with him.....and i sometimes thinkh you just know....you get a feeling....i wish foal farm would reconsider....and at least give him a chance.....like j said to us if it didnt work out he could come back and it would be like he has had a holiday!  WE knew though the moment we saw Toddy he was for us! Just hope Fayo doesnt spent too much longer in Kennels.........like poor Toddy! good luck little Fayo :'(
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: B.ORCHID on February 06, 2013, 06:39:55 am
Sorry to hear that Gilly and Trevor but it is a prudent decision.
I agree with you Ruth and Alison I really do hope Fayo finds a home and dreams can come true look at little Toddy he found The Londons and is in seventh heaven ;D

Post by: soosiesu on February 06, 2013, 01:41:10 pm
Oh Ruth - that is so funny - not for poor Fayo obviously, who had to go back to kennels - but what an introduction to the breed!

As the Londons said though I could see most bullies doing that - on a good day!  ;D
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: Ruth on February 06, 2013, 02:20:42 pm
I know - it did make me laugh when the kennel staff told me the story.

He is very demanding though but he was so lovely and not aggressive, I know he would calm down when he has a home, a routine, decent walks and good food. Bullies do notoriously badly in kennels. In general they are not a breed that can go without stimulation and play and do not like their own company for long periods of time especially without the exercise both mental and physical. As we all know, no one sleeps the deep sleep of a tired bullie however we also know that an overenergetic understimulated bullie is nothing short of a nightmare.

Fayo will only get worse as time goes on  :(
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help....
Post by: the Londons on February 06, 2013, 04:41:07 pm
Oh dear Ruth.....do you not think they would reconsider and give gilly and trevor a chance.....in fact more to the point give fayo a chance....like you say a big part of his behaviour is due to being confined to the kennels....for such a long time....i do hope that he will not be there for too much longer....mind you this incident for someone not familiar with our bullies wont enhance his chances of being rehomed.....we would love the cheeky monkey if we could....brad goes mad at me because he says .....you say that about every one that needs a home....but its true.....he says if we had  each one we wanted to rehome we would have to start up our own foster home......now theres a good idea!....if we didnt have to work....we truley would.....that lottery win....if only......... ???

Gilly and Trevor could you not arrange with Foal farm to let you spend a whole day with him, then go to a hotel for the night and spend the next day with him too. surely they would see and you would know if he was right for you ? We went up foal farm the other day and he was pacing up and down the kennel run, he was barking and came up to the wire fence looking very stressed ! We met him up there a couple of months ago after he had a walk and he was such a sweet boy. He is not selling himself very well at the moment and he will only get worse i feel so sorry for him.

Saying co durham is a long way.....but then they are the ones if it doesnt work out who have to drive all the way back to kent.....and if they are that commited to come all the way in the first place .....surely they should be given a chance!

Yes I met him a few months ago and he was a lovely boy, adored his teddy toy - very excitable but so sweet, he loved my sausage treats and sat nicely - I took him out for a bit and he was so interested in what was going on. It is so sad that he has been in kennels for so long and I know he will not be the same dog soon. :( :( I will try to get up there again and take him for a walk. :(

It would be up to Gilly and Trev to ask - no offence meant but I cannot personally recommend them having never met them - but I would happily arrange a homecheck and then even offer a bed for them for the night if they took up BullieJ+N's suggestion of seeing him two days running and Foal Farm agreed.

Post by: gilly on February 11, 2013, 05:03:26 pm
We’re sorry to say that we are not changing our decision.
After speaking to the lady at foal farm it was obvious that Fayo was not the dog for us and I got the feeling that she felt the same.  As far as I am aware Foal Farm did not refuse us, but I agree that due to his problems, a relationship should be built up before re-homing to ensure it is the correct match and to save Fayo going backwards and forwards.
We have not met Fayo so can’t comment about his temperament and don’t want to put anyone else off but going off what the lady said, he needs a lot more work than we initially thought.  If we had lived nearby we would have called in regularly over a few weeks to observe his behaviour and take him for walks but that is just not possible.
Due to working shifts I will not be present all of the time and so Gilly would spend a lot of time with Fayo on her own and after hearing about his behaviour I do not think she would be strong enough to manage him.  Don’t get me wrong, the normal bull terrier behaviour like running around the house and garden like a bull in a china shop would not bother us, in fact we found the story hilarious.
I know you all have Fayo’s well being at heart but it is with regret after giving it loads of thought and sleepless nights that we just daren’t take the risk.
Hopefully he will find a new home locally very soon.

Thank you for letting us know Gilly & Trev - Poor Fayo has been in kennels for more than 6 months and I met him 4 months ago so I imagine he is more of a challenge than he originally was - sorry if you felt pressurised a bit but we all just wanted to see him given a chance before it is too late but totally understand your decision.

Glad you bought him up Petra....there are so many to ask about....bless him....its tough isnt it....so many to rehome.....even if someone could foster him ....it would help....at least he would be out of kennels....i do really feel for him....when i think how long toddy was in kennels before he found us.....or should i say ...we found him......wish someone would give fayo a chance.........he is a little bugger....but half of that is due to being in kennels i bet....he just needs a break with someone that is willing to give him a chance....... :(

We were up at Foal farm recently and poor Fayo really is not selling himsef, we met him before on a walk and he was fine but this time he was pacing up and down the run and barking like mad ! he did not look like the same dog to me being locked up is really getting to him.

really the kennels send them into a manic high, mocha lost weight even though her food intake was increased,  eme that she had never had so much a snarl at ended up fighting, they had to be separated for the duration.   However it can be reversed by someone who can spend some time and effort with them.    Just finding the right person, there is someone out there looking for a dog,

I'm Fayo & I'm a typical young Bullie. I'm looking for an owner with experience of my breed before. I can play roughly with other dogs and would do best as an only dog until I've had some training.

Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help.... Fayo
Post by: ClareT3 on November 24, 2013, 09:24:11 pm
I think they should extend the area he can be rehomed to.  I can understand their anxiety... but to an experienced bully owner he would be no problem (well, ok yeah, a bit of a problem maybe, at first).  I think most experienced bully owners would find him more of a challenge in a good way, well, challenge is not the right word really, cos, well, Fayo would be like a mission, an entertaining mission.  I'm sure most of us (me included and my OH, when I read it to him) who are experienced, laughed at the story of Fayo running through the garden and pond and back through the house soaking wet!  We all know he will be a lot of work initially but he just needs a good, loving, patient home.  Again, yes I can understand Foal Farms anxiety at him being rehomed far away - but there is such a thing as technolgoy, emails, photos, skype.  Personally, I think he'd be better off in that warm, loving home he deserves than being kept in 'rescue' for the sake of distance - such a shame.
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help.... Fayo
Post by: the Londons on November 25, 2013, 12:50:39 pm
Yes ClareT3....im begining to think that too.......he would stand a better chance....he has been at foal farm far too long....bless him....maybe CHRISTMAS will bring him some luck.....god knows he needs it poor boy....even a foster home would help him right now....any offers anyone ??? Pleeeeeeeeeeeze ;)
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy needs your help.... Fayo
Post by: Ruth on November 25, 2013, 01:29:06 pm
I think if someone further afield applied, they would have no objection if they were prepared to travel to visit Fayo and build up a relationship and Foal Farm were satisfied the prospective owners knew what they were doing as their trainer is local to them too so the applicants would be on their own ???

Perhaps they are just worried that without this commitment Fayo would be stuck far from Foal Farm with people insisting he be moved NOW. Doesn't matter what people say, when they take a dog home and feel they have bitten off more than they can chew the responsibility becomes the rescues to remove the dog rightaway and a reputable rescue would obviously want to for the sake of the dog but logistics would make it very difficult. We have had people insist that unless we picked up the dog the same day they would dump it at the RSPCA kennels and that was after they had been homechecked, had relevant experience and were offered ongoing support.

Obviously we have some lovely applicants who have gone above and beyond and understand that a rescue bullie can have a few issues that can be worked on (quite a few on here) but experience has taught us all that this is not always the case. :(

Post by: the Londons on November 25, 2013, 06:38:16 pm
I do understand Ruth.....and know that they only want the best for Fayo.....I don't think people fully understand the commitment of taking on a rescue (of course only bullie experienced people do)and cant believe that they don't give it a try and expect the rescue to then take them back.....but glad that they do....as you said...they would otherwise be dumped somewhere else....its so hard isn't it ...to get the right person who will be totally commited to the bullie in question...and if someone was prepared to forsake aLL...........and travel back and forth to make sure that Fayo was the right one for them....then they will know that they have the right person ;D

We've had 5 rescue dogs from bull terrier welfare starting in 1976. Belinda was rehomed and lasted 2 days. She was a lovely dog who loved every one yes she was a handful at first but she was only 16mths old. We had her until she was13.  Next  was Henry he lasted 1 day and was taken back.  Yes he was not dog friendly but we could cope with that my husband was up at 5.30 at first so he could walk him without any trouble.  He made friends with other dogs after a while. I just wish we could rehome another dog there are so many needing a home.

Post by: Ruth on November 25, 2013, 09:26:15 pm
I'm with you Linda, as far as I am concerned you do what you have to do.

I have had dream docile ones, a truly challenging one that was not keen on most people (for 12 years I banned unexpected visitors) I now have one who is not great with other males dogs so early morning on-lead walks during the week and weekend early morning outings to Ashdown forest so he can have a good run off lead in a relatively safe area, he is however fantastic with people and kids ;D

I loved them all and for all their little ways I can truly say they loved and trusted me (eventually LOL)

Unfotunately after more than a year in kennels Fayo will be a real challenge and will need a truly dedicated new family who will persevere with him  ??? I really feel for him but at least the kennels are indoors and heated for the winter which is better than for most kennel dogs :-[

FAYO WOULD LIKE A NEW HOUSE PLEASE!
http://www.foalfarm.org.uk/appeals/ (http://www.foalfarm.org.uk/appeals/)

Fayo, our English Bull Terrier has a real opportunity of getting out of his kennel and being cared for by his dedicated dog volunteer, Vikki. Vikki will initially house him in an outdoor unit whilst re-introducing Fayo slowly to ‘normal’ life, ensuring that this lovely dog has a chance of happiness. Fayo’s problems are that he ‘targets’ every day items such as cabinets, doors, shadows and anything ‘out of place’ and will direct his aggression to these items and has been returned to us for these issues.

Vikki is a dedicated volunteer for Fayo and is heartbroken every time she leaves him behind at Foal Farm. She will be able to give him a daily routine which will enrich his life, going out and about to different places (Fayo loves a dip in a river!!) whilst maintaining his behaviour outside of a home environment for the time being.

We feel this may be his only opportunity of ‘getting out of Foal Farm’ and having a chance of a relatively normal home life which he has been extremely lucky to have been offered.

For every donation made over £10.00, donors will be put into a ‘hat’ for a chance to win a night’s stay at The Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge which has been kindly donated for Fayo’s fund.  The prize includes a nights stay with breakfast.  Please look at their website for more details of the hotel: www.oatlandsparkhotel.com (http://www.oatlandsparkhotel.com).  Help us help Fayo on his new venture. We know money is tight in this current climate but we would just like to help this young lad. We do not want him to spend the next 10 years in rescue. We need over £1,000 – we have £240.00 so far so get digging down those sofas for those pound coins!  Donations can be made in our reception or on our ‘Just Giving’ page which can be found on the front page of our website or click here http://www.justgiving.com/Foal-Farm2 (http://www.justgiving.com/Foal-Farm2)

I'm not sure I understand this?? ??? what do they need a £1000 for?? if the dog is going into foster/rehome?? Or are they paying her to take him away???  ;) If so I will take one of their dogs, or two?? ;D

From the Just Giving page:

I've been at Foal Farm for quite a while now as I need a specialist home because I can be a little bit naughty in a home.  My problems are that I 'target' things like televisions, windows, pictures, cupboards, actually you name it, I obsess with it which makes it very difficult to find me a home.  One of my regular dog volunteers, Vikki, is very special to me and takes me out on lovely walks but she would like to do more to rehabilitate me so I can find my permanent home. Vikki has offered to house me in an outdoor unit with all the doggie perks like heating and my own big grass area to run around in but she says we need to raise the money to build this unit.  So, please donate what you can so I can have a chance at a normal life and not have to stay in my kennel for the rest of my days.

Fayo is a very difficult dog in the home and has been returned quite a few times. He really needs very slow introductions to home life.

I am going to sponsor Fayo and hopefully get a chance to visit him, saw this on the dog sponsorship pages:

Fayo came to Foal in 2012 with a bandaged leg at just 17 months old.  It was reported by his previous owners that he had fallen down the stairs and injured himself.  Unfortunately, the leg was the least of our worries as the bandage had been on too long and his foot had started to rot.  Many, many foot baths later (with Fayo not being too keen on this) he made a full recovery and started to look for a home.......

I contacted Foal Farm again as we had already been involved with Fayo, just to check funds were still needed and what they were doing, I got the following reply I am hoping our trainer may have some time to help Fayo which is what I suggested in my email to them:

Dear Ruth

Thank you very much for your email.  Unfortunately, we have actually began the building of Fayo’s kennel at our volunteer’s home.  We are also demolishing the unit that Fayo is currently housed in so a delay in getting Fayo to his new remote kennel is not an option I’m afraid.

However, we would welcome any opinion from someone who will be able to assist the volunteer who is caring for Fayo.  Please could you let me have the cost of this and we will go from there.

Sounds like a good option for Fayo, far better than staying in kennels ALL the time.

Londons - I think it says 'are demolishing' not have demolished!!! ;)

This poor boy!!  :( What are they medicating him for??  ??? He sounds like a OCD case with the lights/shadows etc that set him off!!  Has anyone enquired as to what he is being fed?? I hope this move actually will help him and is not a shuffle sideways. I am sure if jeremy goes to see him he will have some suggestions to help the boy!! 8) I don't like to think of a relatively young dog living possibly for many years, kenneled. So, fingers crossed for Fayo!! that he can possibly be slowly desensitised to his 'triggers'. :-*
Title: Re: An 18 month Bullie boy Fayo - Foal Farm, Kent
Post by: Ruth on March 09, 2014, 06:22:39 pm
I think that is what they are hoping, the triggers are in the home environment so that is what they are trying to address with this new arrangement. Otherwise he was kenneled all the time which wasn't helping.

They are trying their best and are prepared to pay and work with Jeremy so let's hope he has time :-\

He is still on the sponsor page so I will donate that way so it is for Fayo. Although as you said Alison I dont mind helping any dog and I know Foal Farm have had him a long time and not given up on him like some rescues would :o
