Adopt a Dog

The animals available for adoption are always changing and we try to keep our website up to date but it is advisable to contact the shelter to see if an animal has found a home, or if there are any new animals for adoption.

To apply to adopt, please download an application form from the bottom of this page.

About me: Lily is a gorgeous blue girl who is always happy to see people. She is very friendly, loves her food and is looking for a sofa to lie on.

Cats: She cannot live with cats or small furries.

Dogs: Yes, she could live with another greyhound or similar sized dog. She has been on walks with smaller dogs here at the shelter but will need further socialising around them.

Children: 8 years and over.

Ideal home: Lily is a retired racer, she has not lived in a home before  so will need to learn about living in a home environment. She will need access to a garden to have zoomies in, before lying on the sofa for the rest of the day.

About me: Millie is looking for a foster home with a view to adopt.
Millie is a very friendly girl who loves going out on her walks. She can be unsure of new things so will need someone who can give her the training and confidence to be a happy pup.

Cats: Millie is scared of cats so would be better in a cat free home.

Dogs: Yes, she could live with another dog after several meets here at the shelter.

Children: 12 years and over.

Ideal home: Millie will need a home with someone who will give her further socialisation and have a garden of her own.

About me: Pixie is a sweet spaniel who loves to go for a long walk but also cuddle up on the sofa.

Pixie really struggled in kennels so we found a foster home for her. Although she has settled well into another home environment she does display behavioural issues which will need managing. Sadly, she has had a lot of changes in her life and this has resulted in fear based growling. We had a behaviourist assess her and she believes that this is her way of dealing with multiple changes. She will need someone who is experienced and confident in dealing with this type of behaviour so that she can flourish into the typical spaniel we know her to be.

Cats: No, she cannot live with cats or small furries.

Dogs: Yes, she could live with another dog after several meets together.

Children: Adult only home.

Ideal home: Pixie will need an experienced and patient owner, either a single person or couple. She will need a home that can give her plenty of mental and physical stimulation to keep her happy, as well as redirect her anxiety around any changes in her life. She doesn’t resource guard but it can sound intimidating if you are not confident dealing with this type of behaviour. The behaviourist is also happy to support any new adopter.

Comments from her foster family:
Once Pixie had settled in, she is incredibly affectionate and loyal. She loves to play with her soft toys and is very food oriented. Using high value treats helps when trying to diffuse a situation where she feels particularly anxious. She is completely housetrained and loves to watch (and chase!) the wildlife in the garden. Overall she is a lovely dog and will make a great companion but she will need someone who is patient and understanding.


DOB: July 2010

Sex: Male

Breed: JRT x 

Size: Small 

Energy level: Low

About me: Bandit is a sweet older gentleman who came to us through no fault of his own. He is quite spritely for a senior and still enjoys going out for walks and sniffs. He has had a dental since being with us but otherwise he is in good health. 

Cats: No, he is a typical terrier so cannot be rehomed with cats or small furries. 

Dogs: Yes, he has previously lived with dogs. 

Children: 12 years and over. 

Ideal home: Bandit would like a quiet retirement home and a garden to sniff around in. 


DOB: December 2020

Sex: Male 

Breed: Lurcher x 

Size: Large

Energy level: Medium – high 

About me: Diego is a sweet and gentle boy. He loves to have zoomies but will happily take himself off to bed (or the sofa!) where he spends a lot of his day. 

Cats: No. 

Dogs: Diego is a sociable dog and we find that he prefers going on walks when other dogs go out too. We feel he will need to be rehomed with at least one other dog.

Children: 12 years and over. 

Ideal home: Diego has already had a few homes prior coming to us. He will need a home with someone who is willing to give him further training and a consistent routine. He is a lovely dog to have around the house and will need a garden of his own.
