LAST UPDATED ON 14 Sept 2019

7 year old SBT
Marley is a wonderful dog, he is loving, playful, sociable and good in the house. He is good with kids (6+). He does need to be the only pet in the home but keeps himself to himself on a walk.
He was adopted but returned after 2 weeks because he does pull on the lead and as he is strong he can be difficult to walk so he will need someone strong and with patience and time to
train him and not give up on the first hurdle.
Marley does not cope well in kennels and becomes very stressed


17 month old Jack Russell

Jack is a very loving dog, loves to wash you and jump into your arms for a cuddle. He is fine with children 8+.
Jack is extremely active in the home and when out on a walk so will need lots of exercise and things to do.
Jack will have to be the only pet as he is not sociable around other animals.

5 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier x
Rocky has been passed around most of his life thus he has never been able to attach to a human, we have been made aware of at least 3 different homes but for some unknown reason he keeps being sold on or given away this has caused him to be shy and untrusting. Once he trusts you he is very loving and gives very good cuddles. He likes to play and go for walkies. He will need to be the only pet in the home.He will need a quiet calm home as he is very sensitive - all Rocky wants is a human of his own and one that will give him a permanent home.

2 year old rottweiler cross
Bolt has been passed around all his short life - we know of 5 homes he has had already! we are surprised he still loves humans as much as he does. Bolt is very immature and still thinks he is 10 weeks old. He is very loving, playful, attentive but has little or no manners. He knows basic commands and is very clean in his kennel but he is very active and bouncy and this can be hard work due to his size. He does not have a bad bone in his body and all he wants is for someone to have the time and patience to train him and give him the exercise he needs. He does not want to fight with other dogs but he will have to be the only pet as he needs one to one training with no distractions. Although he is fine with children he does not have any manners around them so he knocks them over so a home with kids 14+ only

14 month old SBT
Lola was handed in for re-homing so we know a little bit about her. She has been around children 6 years and over, she is very active, playful and very loving. She will require on going training in the home and when out on a walk. She loves chasing tennis balls she just needs to learn to bring them back. However Lola has reacted to the kennel environment in a negative way - she is very stressed and is not enjoying her time here, we have seen this before and we know if a home is not found soon her temperament and health will deteriorate. She will need to be the only pet and she will need an active home.

6 year old Lurcher
Sam is a great dog, he is fun and makes you laugh. He is playful and loving and can be quite lazy as well. He will need to be the only pet, no cats or small dogs.
He is obsessed with teddy's and likes rip them up to see what's inside. He is fine with children (6 years +)
He has been worked so caution is needed when out and about with small animals.

12 month old Whippet x
Cha cha is a great dog, full of fun and happiness
She is very active and very intelligent so will need an adopter who will stimulate her mind and take her out for lots of exercise
She will need to be the only pet in the home as she is not dog/cat friendly
She is very loving but due to a lack of manners around children she would be best with teenagers and older. She is housetrained

7 year old Chihuahua cross
JJ is a quiet and gentle little sole. when he first came in he was so traumatised at being dumped he did not eat for 10 days but thankfully he eats very well now and is much happier
He is not a demanding dog- he is happy with a walk and a sofa, he does sit on your knee and give a little kiss but does not want too much fuss.
He will have to be the only dog in the house as he does not like canine company. He is no trouble and will make a wonderful companion for a retired person or couple.
He does like his walkies so will need to be out and about on a regular basis. He will not be suited to a noisy busy home, quiet and calm is for JJ. He is very protective of his kennel so will bark and tell you off for looking.



6 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Tilly is a wonderful, loving and very patient dog. She is gentle and playful and just wants to be cuddled all the time,S he quite insecure/needy and is still coming to terms being in a strange environment. She will have to be the only pet in the home. She will be good with children (6+). She has had a very large cyst removed from her left leg and has been given the all clear.
She will need someone home part of the day

Chico - 6 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Chico came in a stray and although his owner knows he is here she has not claimed him or communicated with us. Chico is very active, playful and very loving. Although he tolerates other dogs if they leave him alone he is best being the only pet (no cats)
He is good with children (6+). He will need someone at home most of the day as he suffers from separation anxiety this is due to being passed from home to home.

8 month old Cross Breed
Stella was found tied to a bridge in Little Lever but thankfully being abandoned has not affected her. Stella is a whirl wind and loves life to the full.
She is good with other dogs and will insist on playing rough with them. She is very active and will require ongoing training and lots of exercise.
She has little or no manners but is very attentive and very trainable due to her high intelligence. She has a good nature and is full of love to give and you will get the love weather you want it or not!
She will need a home with older robust children that are used to dogs bouncing around. She will need someone at home most of the da

Dillon is a very active little dog, he loves to play and run round (be a good jogging partner for short distances). He is loving and well mannered when with you.
He likes people a lot but he is NOT dog /cat friendly and can react to dogs who bark at him.
He will need to be kept on a lead when walked but as he likes a good run round we would recommend hiring a
fenced area to allow him to do this or a very large fenced garden would ok too to have off lead fun. Children 8 +
