Rescue Finnish Spitz

April 2017 – We have recently become aware of 2 Finnish Spitz bitches who are looking for new home(s).  One is called Goldie and is 8 years old.  The other is Lady who is 9 years old.  Both are neutered and could be homed together or separately. They would probably be best in a home without children.  If you may be interested in giving Goldie or Lady or both of them a new home, please read the information and links on this page and then contact Sue Price in the first instance for more information – email subrinian@gmail.com, tel 02476 464258.

Update March 2017 – We are very pleased to hear that Honey has now gone to her new home!
February 2017 – We have recently become aware of 6 1/2 year old Finnish Spitz bitch called Honey who is looking for a new home.  She is a loving friendly bitch but would probably be best in a home with no other dog and no young children/toddlers.  If you may be interested in giving Honey a new home, please read the information and links on this page and then contact David Rolfe for more information – email davidjrolfe@gmail.com, tel 01278 423406.

When a breeder sells a Finnish Spitz puppy to a new owner, everyone hopes that this will be for the life of the dog – and in most cases it will be.  However, occasionally the owner may become unable to continue looking after the dog.  This may be for one of a number of reasons e.g. illness of the owner, significant changes in lifestyle, a move to unsuitable accommodation, or emigration.  This page offers advice and contact information for owners who find themselves in such a situation.  It also provides advice and contact information to anyone who may be able to offer a permanent new home to a ‘rescue dog’ or may be particularly looking for an older dog rather than a puppy.

If you are an existing owner of a Finnish Spitz and need to re-home the dog:
first of all contact the breeder (click for contact list) who sold you the dog as they may be able to help
– then, if necessary, contact one or both of the Finnish Spitz breed club rescue contact persons listed below

If you are interested in offering a new home to a ‘rescue’ Finnish Spitz:
