5 year old Patterdale Terrier (fell terrier)
Dixie took his time settling in but he has come out of himself now and has shown us he is a very loving, playful dog.
He chases balls and loves his walkies. He is clean in the home and quite well mannered. Dixie will need a home with no children or other pets.
Dixie must be kept on a lead at all times as he hunts and will seek out cats, rabbits etc....


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.


V Large cross breed - 12 months old
Rocky is a wonderful dog, just a great big teddy bear - he loves everyone and everything. He is good with other dogs and children (6+)
He is very loving, playful and attentive so easy to train. He will need someone at home a lot as he is still in his puppy stage.
Please remember he is big and strong and will require someone strong enough to walk him.

2 year old Elk Hound
Loki is quite an immature dog, it is obvious he has been left to his own devices and has never been taught manners. He is very loving, playful and happy. He does not mind being brushed as this is attention and this is what he craves.
Adults only. Although he is good with other dogs he will need to be the only pet as he is a sex pest and you cant expect another dog to put up with this – and yes he is neutered. He will need someone at home most of the day due to his insecurities and his desire to be cuddled.

12 month old cross breed (medium)
Amber is a great dog, she is very loving, playful and full of life and happiness. She just loves being cuddled and playing chase with the tennis ball. She is great with other dogs
. We think she has been crated most of her puppy-hood so will need basic training in the home and on the lead. Children 5 + will be fine

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.

6 year old Lab/Rotty cross
Marley is a big cuddle monster - he just loves being held. He is very playful and quite immature for his age.
He knows basic commands and is house trained.
He does need a little lead training. He has been around other dogs and seems to be fine but he will need to be only pet in the home as we cant be sure if he will live with another dog (NO CATS) Children 8 + will be fine

8 year old English Setter
Oliver's world fell apart when his owner refused to claim him - instead choosing to go on holiday, he would not even tell us the dogs name. Oliver has not settled in at all - he is scared of his own shadow and will not let us in
- He will show a few seconds of affection but that’s it, he does not play all he wants to do is go home. He is not interested in other dogs, he just ignores them. He needs a quiet and calm home in a quiet area and someone experienced with this breed.
We hope once he is re-homed he will start to trust humans again.

12 month old Labrador
Sadie is a happy, bouncy, loving and very playful young lady.
She is fine with other dogs and fine with cats.
she does lack manners and will need some serious lead training as she does pull and she is a strong dog.
Children 6+ used to big bouncy dogs will be fine.

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

Tao is a wonderful dog, very gentle, loving and sociable. He is fine with other dogs. He has the usual skin issues and has has one mild bout of fever and secreted Mucin which he got over very quickly so his adopter will have to very knowledgeable on this breed.
