LAST UPDATED ON 11 September 2017



Tess - REHOMED
12 month old Lurcher (large)
Tess is a lovely, gentle and very loving young lady.
She is a little shy at first but soon warms to you
She is the same with dogs, shy at first them loves to play with them.
She will be fine, although a little clumsy with children (6+)
She chases cats . She will need basic training


Sasha
11 year old Alsatian
Sasha is very fit and agile for an old lady. She is very gentle, laid back, calm but very aloof. She does not show much affection a little wag of the tail and the odd wash of the hand is all the gives. She is good with other dogs and does not mind cats.
She is a little nervous so we recommend she be kept on a lead when walked. She would be an ideal companion for a retired person or couple


Peter
3 year old Husky cross
Peter is quite aloof at first and can seem quite uninterested in anything - but once you get to know him he can be very playful
He does not show much affection and is very chilled in the home
He is good with children (6+) He has no issues with dogs - but again is indifferent to them - He has been a family pet.



Gizmo - REHOMED

4 year old Jack Russell

Giz is a wonderful little dog, very loving, happy and playful....
He is great with female dogs (neutered).
He is fine with older children (8+)
NO CATS

 

 



Edna
mature cross breed (collie/boxer 13 - 15 years)
Edna is a wonderful old lady, full of loveliness. She is fine with other dogs providing they are quiet and respectful of her age. She may be able live with an older dog who is neutered as we can not spay her due to her age. She is fine with cats.
All relevant blood tests and health checks have come back ok. She has some mammary masses and a large fatty growth on her back leg, again this would require lengthy surgery to remove and she is too old.
She still gets giddy and playful but not for long. She will be available on our foster scheme please see our website for full details on fostering http://www.animalshelter.org.uk/foster.html
She has gained weight in the 3 weeks we have had her.

 


SAM
RETURNED ADOPTION 21/2/17
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.

Gary
15 month old Patterdale cross
Gary is a very active dog, loads of energy and great enthusiasm for life. He is reactive to his environment so would need a calm home, with no other pets or young children.
He loves his toys especially tennis balls. He can be very loving. He will need further basic training. He has had his left eye removed due to glaucoma and there is a chance that he may loose his other eye in the future. His adopter will need patience and experience and be quite active as well.


Cha Cha
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


Lucy
6 year old cross breed (gsd cross)
Lucy was handed in as a stray - she had suffered injuries to her legs and head - we are convinced that her owner handed her in because they did not want to pay vets bills as a total stranger would not have been able to get near her at that time.
We have took our time with her as she is shy and nervous and did not want to trust humans. She has come on in leaps and bounds now and we think she is now ready to go into a home (hopefully) She is fine on a walk now - although she can get spooked she recovers well. she now shows us she is loving and playful. She does not get on with other dogs so needs a child/pet free home. Her adopter my have to get to know her over a period of time due to her insecurities .



Susie
12 month old American Bull Dog cross
Susie is very loving, playful and intelligent. She is eager to please and easy to train. She has never been socialised around other dogs so does not know how to react to them but we think with some careful socialisation she may be great.
She loves helping her self to toys but is a serial teddy killer! She can get very giddy and loves to run. She would require a calm quiet home with no other pets. She is fine with older children - 10+



Patch

8 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Patch was handed in by her owner who when asked about her history ran off never to be seen again!

She is a very loving little Staff - loves sitting on the sofa having cuddles. She likes playing fetch and is quite active for an older dog.
She will need to be the only pet and will be fine with children over 6. She is a little bit thin but she should fill out in time.



Rufus

8 year old cross breed (very healthy & fit)

Rufus is a very loyal, loving and obedient dog. He loves playing and chasing balls - He loves his cuddles and his belly rubbed.
He is housetrained - he would be best as the only dog. He would suit an active retired person or couple


Toffee
2 year old domestic short coat
Toffee has been in our care for more than 12 months now.
She is a very independent cat and will only allow you to stroke her head.
She will need an adult home only with no other pets.
Her adopter will need to be understanding of her many quirks.
