This big handsome boy is Womble and he almost didn't have a Christmas this year. He was in an overcrowded pound and at risk of being put to sleep. Fortunately, an Oldies Club fosterer came forward to help him and we managed to get him to his new foster home in Preston, Lancashire, just in time for Christmas. You can read more about him here.
Womble is about 7 years old and he's thought to be a German Shepherd and Rottweiler cross. As you can see from his photos it didn't take him long to settle in and he made the most of the Christmas festivities!
Womble is a big cuddly boy and his favourite pastimes are eating, snoozing and going for walks. He's currently about 10kg overweight so he's trying to do a little less of the eating and a bit more of the walking. He'd be happy in a fairly active home and will need someone who can continue to work with him on his diet. He's generally good on the lead, but can be strong if something takes his interest and we're not yet sure about his recall but will update when we know more.
Womble is very good with cats and other dogs, but he would prefer quieter companions for his housemates. He's a really friendly and cheeky boy and he loves being with people and wouldn't mind living with older children (aged 7 years+). It would be great if he could find a home with someone who is around most of the day, although he doesn't object to being left for a few hours at a time.
Womble is neutered, microchipped and flea and worm treated and his vaccinations have been started. He has a fatty lump on his back leg which is due to be removed before he's rehomed.
If you'd like to find out more about our lovely Womble, please refer to our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:

Womble 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.
