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: Blue
Age: 8 years old
Sex: Male
Breed: Stafforshire Bull Terrier
Neutered : Yes
Vaccinated:Yes
Microchipped:Yes

Good with cats: No.

Good with other Dogs: Blue needs to be the only dog in his new home.

Good with children?  No. Blue needs an adult only home

Summary:

Handsome people-loving Blue is very easy to have around the house, he is polite around food, although he will ‘check’ you haven’t dropped anything – just in case. It isn’t a problem to leave him on his own for a few hours at a time. Blue loves routine and to go for regular walks, whether 10 mins around the block in the rain or 2 hours exploring in the woods, he is a great companion on these trips and enjoys outings in the car too.  Blue does enjoy his sleep, especially on the comfy sofa, ideally curled up next to you but he will settle himself without nagging for attention.  Blue is very trainable and learns new things easily.
However Blue is an alert, slightly anxious kind of dog, he is quick to check things out, particularly the letter box, motorbikes and running cats.  If given the chance he will take the leader role as way to control his environment.  With consistent and firm boundaries there has been a marked improvement both around the front door and when out walking.   Blue can be reactive with other dogs, especially if they are reactive too,  but some of his most joyful and relaxed moments have been walking and playing with terriers so this is an area that could make a big difference for Blue if managed correctly.
If you are the kind of person that can be disciplined and consistent, with your own calm boundaries and want to be loved to within an inch, then Blue is the boy for you!  Blue has lived with male adults most of his life which would suit him best, however he is currently living very happily with a lady fosterer.

*** REHOMED ***

Name: Sooty
Age: 4 years
Sex:Female
Breed: Terrier Cross
Neutered: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Good with children? Hasn’t been around children before – only children over 10 years old

Summary:

Name: Fluke
Age: 2 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Staffordshire Bull terrier
Neutered: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Good with children? Fluke could live with teenage children but really is too full on for younger children.
Good with other dogs? NO – Fluke really needs to be the only dog in his new home.

Cats: No – Fluke likes to chase them

Summary: Fluke will need to be rehomed to a quiet/rural area, with an understanding and patient owner. Due to a lack of socialisation when he was young, Fluke can really struggle at times when in the presence of unknown dogs (particularly large ones), this behaviour is also worse when he is in unfamiliar surroundings, and he can be quiet reactive. His new owner will need to be able to work with our dog trainer to help Fluke settle and relax in his new home.   

Fluke is a lovely but lively boy with bundles of energy. He was trained as an agility dog in his previous home which was a great way of channelling his energy. He is very good at jumping so a very high fence and secure garden is a must! He has a very sensitive tummy, so is on a strictly fish based diet and this really suits him. He has a lovely glossy coat and really is in lovely condition. Fluke is very quick to learn and very eager to please. He will be a delightful dog once he is placed in the right home.
