Adopt a Dog
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.
Name: Buster and Tiny
Breed: Buster (long haired terrier cross) and Tiny (black and white Jack Russell)
Age: Both 9 years
Good with children? Yes – they are very good with children over school age
Good with other dogs? They tolerate other dogs, but would prefer a home home where it is just the two of them.
Good with cats? Although they have previously lived with cats, they do like to chase and bark at them.
Summary: These two boys are half brothers. They are completely inseparable and are desperately looking for their forever home together – We will NOT split them. Sadly, Buster had to have his eye removed, since being in our care. This was due to an untreated eye problem that stemmed back from when he was a youngster. He has now recovered from his operation and our vets are very pleased with his progress.
Buster and Tiny do not like to be left for long periods of time so would prefer a home where someone is around for the majority of the day.
These boys are so much fun and they will make a lovely addition to the right home.
Breed: Staffordshire bull terrier cross
Age: Just over 1 year
Good with children? Darcy is very bouncy and has not been used to children. We would prefer her to go to an adult only or with teenage children home.
Good with other dogs? Yes, but can be a bit full on for some.
Good with cats? Darcy ignores them out on walks but chases if in her house or garden.
Summary: Darcy is a lovable and happy little dog. She has come on in leaps and bounds with her training since being in our care. She walks perfectly on the lead, is excellent off lead and is completely housetrained. Darcy likes to sleep in a crate for comfort and travels happily in a crate too. Darcy would prefer a home where someone is around for most of the day. She will need a active home as enjoys her regular walks and being a young dog, she has bundles of energy.
Age: 6 years old
Breed: Jack Russell
Spayed: No (she is currently in season, so will be spayed in 3 months)
Good with children? No – Poppy has never been around children Good with other dogs? Poppy is fine with other dogs out on walks but would not want to share her home.
Summary: Sadly Poppy came into rescue as her owner passed away. Poppy is a nervous little girl who has not seen much of the big wide world. However, each day she is with us, she is gaining in confidence. We are looking for a quiet and understanding home for Poppy.
Age: 16/17 months
Breed: Bichon Frise
Good with children? Yes but is VERY playful.
Good with other dogs? Yes, Timmy is currently in foster with other dogs. He loves to play and we feel he would benefit from being in a home with at least one other dog.
Good with cats? After initially trying to chase the cats in his foster home, Timmy got a bop on the nose by one of the cats and now gives them a very wide berth!
Summary: Timmy is full of fun and mischief! But he can be a handful and certainly isn’t a dog for the faint hearted! Timmy suffers from separation anxiety, so cannot be left alone. He is also extremely destructive and will chew anything and everything if it gets in his way or it looks fun. He is not housetrained – although he is showing slight signs of improvement – he likes to mark his territory – especially in the house. He adores other dogs but does play roughly and not all dogs would be happy with this. He is however, very loving and loves humans. He will make a lovely companion for someone who is prepared to put time and effort to improve his training.
Age: 10 years young
Spayed: No – Lucy cannot be spayed for health reasons.
Good with children? Yes – Lucy loves children
Good with other dogs? Yes – She loves the company of other dogs but young and bouncy ones may be too much for her
Good with cats? Lucy tends to ignore cats so could possibly live with one
Summary: Lucy is a lovely girl and is very young at heart. She is a very gentle girl and is extremely loving with both children and adults. Lucy is very well behaved in the home and is perfectly out on walks. She loves going out and about and meeting new people and other dogs. She does pull a little on the lead (especially if something took her fancy!) but certainly is more than controllable. Lucy is currently in a foster home so an appointment will need to be made to meet her.
Age: Just over 2 years old
Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Good with other dogs? Yes – Some but after a careful introduction. He is not good with small dogs
Good with cats? No
Good with children? To our knowledge he has never lived with or been around any children. He has been extremely nervous of any he has seen out on walks. Therefore we will not consider rehoming him to families with children under 14 years old
Summary: Boris is looking for a large breed – preferably Mastiff experienced home. He has previously lived with other large dogs after a very careful introduction with no issues. He isn’t so keen on smaller dogs (he is not quite sure what they are so likes to shout at them) and really isn’t too great with cats. Boris has sadly had lots of homes in his short life. He was passed around an estate and lived mainly in very small flats. It is unknown whether he has ever actually lived with or has been around children, so due to his sheer size – combined with the fact he is very nervous of strangers and unexpected loud noises, we would suggest that he could potentially live with very dog savvy children over the age of 14 years only * We will not consider homing him with any children under this age * He walks surprisingly very well on his lead and collar and loves going for walks in the fields. Once Boris has been introduced properly to new people, he is a big and gentle giant who is incredibly affectionate. He loves all types of treats and especially loves playing with his cuddly toys.
Age: 4 years
Breed: Labrador cross Mastiff
Neutered : Not yet but will be done prior to rehoming
Good with children? Yes – toby is good with children of all ages
Good with other dogs? Some – after a careful intro but toby would prefer to be the only dog in his new home
Good with cats? No
Summary: Toby is a lovely boy who sadly found himself in rescue as his owners moved abroad and were unable to take him.
Toby is okay to be left at home alone for a few hours each day whilst his owners go to work. He is perfectly housetrained and very well behaved in the home.
Toby loves going for walks – the longer and muddier the better. He would suit an active family home – he certainly isn’t a couch potato.
He is a very loving boy although can be a little wary of some men when he first meets them.
Age: 9 years old
Good with other dogs? Yes
Good with cats? No
Good with children? Yes – Hamish is good with older children
Summary: Hamish is a lovely boy and very typical of his breed. He will need a hound experienced home or a family who have thoroughly researched his breed and are sure that they can commit to a Beagle.
Hamish loves long walks and also loves the sound of his own voice! He is quite playful and enjoys chewing on his toys.
Like most Beagles, Hamish enjoys his food and especially loves meaty treats as a snack.
He is generally very good with all people – his only exception are the vets – especially when he is being vaccinated. He is really not keen on going to the practise at all, but treats do help to distract him.
