FOR ADOPTING DETAILS

LAST UPDATED ON 20 October 2018



Blake- REHOMED
6 year old Greyhound

Blake was handed into a vets after being attacked by another dog - his owner would not pay to treat him so the Vets payed for his treatment and then the Shelter took him in.The attack has left Blake with more physical scars than psycological - although he lived with another Greyhound he is now a little wary of other dogs and tends to shy away from them now.
Blake is very loving, playful and in short is a gentle giant. He will make a loyal and loving companion.
Older children should be fine and NO CATS - He is housetrained.


Eric
2 year old French Bull Dog
PLEASE READ ALL OF HIS DESCRIPTION
Eric has double incontinence due to his brain not sending signals to the bladder or bowl thus he has to wear a nappy whilst in the home and this will be for the rest of his life.
He also has a megaesophagus - this means he has to be fed small meals to prevent him regurgitating his food.
He has a great personality and is very tolerant of all the washes, sudacrem applications and cuddles he gets on a daily basis
He is ok with other dogs (neutered dogs only) and does not mind cats. He can get a bit mouthy when he gets excited.
He will need a quiet home with no children - He finds a busy household a little too much and he does get car sick
Anyone wishing to adopted Eric will have to spend time over a few days or even weeks getting to know him as he has attached himself to the staff at the Shelter and he thinks this is his home!
His adopter will need to be patient, understanding of his condition and someone must be at home most of the day to be able to change his nappies and clean him


Troy
4 year old Mastiff cross
What a good dog Troy is - he is very loving, playful and sociable. He has met female dogs and seems to be a lover not a fighter – he is very enthusiastic around them and can be too much for smaller dogs and would probably be better as the only dog in the home. He got hissed at by a cat and ran off.
He is clean in his kennel so should be housetrained and we know he is good with children (6+) He is a big strong dog so an experienced owner is needed.
He is great in the car but needs some training on the lead.



Chalkie- REHOMED

8 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Chalkie is a wonderful dog, he is very loving, playful and well mannered - he has a great smile too.
He has met a female dog and seemed fine but the stress of kennels life is taking its toll so we are unable to tell if he does get on with other dogs or not so its best he is re-homed as the only pet –
He is good on a walk and does not want to cause trouble. He is housetrained & Children 6+


 


Pepper- REHOMED

13 month old Shar Pei/Husky cross

Pepper is a great dog, very loving, playful and good manners. She has met a dog and she is not very comfortable around them so she will need to be the only pet. In time with socialisation she may become more accepting of dogs. She is a little shy but soon warms to you.

She is housetrained but due to her age she will need someone in part of the day. Older children should be fine.



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.


Cha Cha - REHOMED
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


Pip

8-10 year old Miniature Pinscher

Pip is a very shy little dog this is due to being given away several times - we know of 4 homes he has already had - so it takes time for him to trust new people but once he lets you in he is a very happy, loving and sociable little dog. He has no issues with other dogs and cats do not bother him. He loves going for walkies and for his age is he is very active. He is in good health and he has just had a dental carried out. Anyone wishing to adopt him may need to get to know him over a period of time - No children

 



Minni

7 year old Alsatian

Minni is a very loving, kind and gentle dog with adults and children - she likes being groomed and playing fetch
She is housetrained. Minni is not dog/cat friendly so would need to be the only pet in the home –

She would need an experienced adopter - (children over 8 years)


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.


Nacho (was Bailey)- REHOMED

5 year old Chihuahua (very small)

Nacho was found dodging traffic and the people on the chip have denied ownership. We think this little dog was hit by a car as he had a black eye,
cuts and bruises when he came in. We don't know whether a hit on the head has made him temperamental or whether he has always been like this.
Nacho will only allow ONE person in his life anymore and is has a major attitude problem. He will NOT get on with other dogs at all of any size or age.
There is no doubt he has been a "handbag dog" - this again has probably added to his issues. He has to be muzzled when at the vets.
We will only consider an adopter who is on their own , no children and no pets - you must have experience of this breed and their issues.


Pablo
5 year old American Bull Dog
Pablo has been locked in a garden since he was a puppy with very little socialisation and when his owner landed himself in prison he was no longer wanted by the family.
Pablo has adjusted very well to life (all be it in kennels) He loves his walkies –
he is good on the lead but due to his size and lack of fitness he is slow and likes short walkies –
He is good with most dogs (only neutered) He loves his walkies with Eric the French Bull Dog :-) and Tina our resident Alsatian.
He is very loving and sometimes becomes a bit amorous. His adopter will need to have experience with large dogs and live a calm and quiet life.
No Children and although he is ok with most dogs (if they are neutered, he does not like un-neutered males or brown fluffy dogs) he is best as the only pet.


Sushi- REHOMED

16 month old Pug cross

Sushi is a great little dog, she is loving, playful, well-mannered and sociable.

She is fine with other dog and cats. Children 5+
Sushi is a very sweet little dog - (other dogs must be neutered)
