LAST UPDATED ON 18 Nov 2021

Lucifer
3 1/2 year old cross breed (small)

Lucifer is a great dog, very good with other dogs - loves to play very rough with them - loves chasing a tennis ball and loves cuddles too. He thinks cats are play things and does not understand why cats dont want to chase him or be chased! He is little or no recall and it can be very difficult to get him back on the lead once he is let off - so he will need his adopter to work on this, until this is sorted he can not be let off a lead in the open. Lucifer will make a fantastic mini agility dog - he is a flying dog. He is active and has a great love of life and food. He will need a very secure garden and children will need to 10+ and have an understanding that door or gates can not be left open due to his lack of recall.




Maggie
11 year old Rottweiler

Maggie came to us as a stray during lockdown last year - she was very wary of the staff and it has taken a long time for Maggie to trust us and show us what a great dog she is. She was not in good health when she came in but she is back to good health and for her age she is very active. Maggie is large for a female. She is more of a woman's dog but she does pick and choose who she bonds with and tolerates everyone else to get a walk and food. we are looking for an adopter who has experience with this breed - Maggie has her limits and does not like too much hands on fuss, she will sit with you and you can tickle her chest all day long but rough play is not for her. She is very loving and very loyal to the right person. She loves her walkies and goes out on a harness , but she will only allow certain people to put the harness on.
Maggie will need to be the only pet in the home - she dislikes other dogs, water, swimming, puddles. Loves her food and treats and travels well in a car. she is big and strong and she just needs a one to one relationship with a human and she will adore you if you are the right person. NO CHILDREN - you will need to visit Maggie on a regular basis as she had been in our care for 12 months. she is available for fostering
She is fed a raw diet and she has joint supplements
NO 1ST FLOOR FLATS/APARTMENTS OR FULL TIME WORKERS


Basil
3 year old cross breed (small)

Basil is a very loving and happy little dog, he loves cuddles and likes to wash you. He is great with other dogs his own size (not larger dogs) He does not mind being brushed. However Basil does have some issues, he can get possessive over his human this led to him biting the ankle of a staff member who walked passed his handler at the time (this has not happened again) he can also get possessive over his bed. He will need a child & cat free home, we will consider a home with another playful, friendly neutered dog male or female. His adopter will need experience with his issues and recognise them and be able to deal with them.


SAM
9 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 fine with bigger dogs on a walk - Sam was tried in a home with another dog that he knew from walkies, it did not work, this is why he needs to be the only pet
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. HE WILL NEED TO BE KEPT ON THE LEAD WHEN WALKED AND THERE WILL NEED TO BE SOME ONE AT HOME MOST OF THE TIME AS HE DOES NOT SETTLE WELL WHEN LEFT FOR LONG PERIODS - YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO VISIT HIM ON A REGULAR BASIS BEFORE HE FEELS SECURE ENOUGH TO GO HOME WITH YOU.



Del Boy
6 year old cross breed (large bull breed)

Del is from Poland and as soon as he landed in the UK his owners dumped him and refused to talk to us so we have taken our time getting to know him and teach him English commands.
Del Boy is as strong as he looks - he is a wonderful dog, very happy, loving and playful.
He loves running around with his fake stick as he loves to show off. He loves to run free in a secure area rather than a walk. On a walk he is very strong and does pull so his adopter will have to equal his strength and Del is very very strong.
He does not like a harness or gentle leader. Del has never been an issue around other dogs –
he completely ignores them when in the kennels or out on a walk and he ignores cats too. He is quite active but soon wears himself out and after 10 minuets he is off again- when he barks the ground shakes
He will need an adopter with experience of large strong dogs you will also need to large and very strong yourself to be able to walk him. We will be looking for a home with a vey large garden (no 1st floor + flats or apartments)
We may consider a neutered female dog of his own to live with (No Kids)

Pebbles
9 month old short coat (Bengal x)
Pebbles is a very timid cat, she does not appear to have been handled well as a kitten. She is far better with woman so we will need an home with adult females –
no children or other pets. Her adopter will need to understand her issues and be patient with her - it will take some time for her to trust –
she is good with the female staff at the shelter but now and again she is in a mood so we leave her alone until she comes to us



Millie Gone to New Home
3 year old female

Millie was handed in for rehoming as she was no longer wanted. She has been a very loving cat but sometimes has a little nip.
She is clean and has a good appetite. She is a nice cat and would suite a single person or couple.
Millie has not been around children or other pets.

Spot Gone to New Home
7 year old male

Spot is the most loving beautiful cat. He just loves attention.
He is not bothered by female cats and of course he gets on with his pal Smokey. He has a good appetite. He will be fine with children 6+


Lola
8 month old female

Lola is a very loving cat, she is playful and greedy. She loves her food and cat nip.
She does not seem bothered by the other cats. Children 8+ will be fine


Smokey Gone to New Home
10 month old female

Smokey is a very independent, playful and happy cat. She does like being stroked and play times but picking her up and cuddling is not for her.
She has not had a good start in life an had already had two litters of kittens, none survived - she is neutered now so no more babies for her,
she hisses at other cats but does get on with Spot as they came from the same home so she is used to him.
Children 12



Sunny Gone to New Home
10 - 12 year old make

Sunny has been returned as he would not settle with the male in the home.
He is very loving and likes his food. Although he is a house cat he been brave once or twice and ventured in the garden.
We will be looking for a single person to adopted Sunny preferable a female as too much noise and fuss from humans does upset him
He will make a great companion for the right person
