DOB: June 2021

About me: Doug is finding kennel life very hard and would prefer a warm cosy sofa to curl up on. He really enjoys being with someone and so would need a home where somebody is around most of the day. He loves going for walks and likes to show off his younger side by being very bouncy. So he would need someone who is willing to be patient with him whilst working on his on lead training.

🐶 Max 🐶

Age: 11 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Cocker spaniel
Size: Medium
Energy level: Medium-high

Personality: Max is very friendly and loves people. He was a bit worse for wear when he first came to us; he had a severe ear infection that has affected his hearing, needed lots of teeth removing and was underweight. Since recovering from all of this and being in a foster home, Max has found a new lease of life and certainly doesn’t seem his age.

Live with cats: No.

Live with dogs: Max has been enjoying all the attention from his fosterers, so we think he would be suited to being the only dog in his new home.

Live with children: Yes, he has previously lived with children.

Ideal home: Max needs someone that is around most of the day and can give him the attention and love that he craves and deserves.


Dob: June 2019
Sex: male
Breed: greyhound
Size: large
Energy level: low- medium

Personality: Bob is a retired racing greyhound. He is a very happy boy who is always wagging his tail! He likes to do a little happy dance when he sees you and is hopeful you will have some treats to give him too. He loves his walks and is a typical greyhound who likes to have zoomies and then lie in his bed all day.

Good with dogs: Bob needs to be the only dog in the home. He has walked with our other greyhound Bix but generally seems to prefer to avoid other dogs.

Good with cats: no, he will chase cats and small furries.

Good with children: any children living in (or visiting) the home need to be 12 years or over.

Ideal home: a comfy sofa for him to stretch out on. Preferably someone with sighthound experience, Bob is muzzled in public.
