LAST UPDATED ON 12 August 2018



Sandy
4 year old Labrador cross
Sandy is a very active dog, he loves investigating and going on long walks. When he first meets another dog he is a little frisky but soon looses interest if they tell him off. He has met cats and just made whimpering noises but he may chase them. He can be aloof one minute and loving the next. It appears he has never been in a home long enough to bond with a human. His adopter will need to be at home part of the day and active. Older children should be fine.


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


Drake
4 year old Pomeranian
Drake can be a temperamental little chap - if he likes you he is loving, playful and attentive - if he does not like you he will let you know.
He likes being groomed and going for walkies.
He will need to be the only pet and no children.
we would preferer his adopter to have experience with this breed



Tyson - REHOMED
10 month old American Bull Dog
Tyson has had little nor no training in his previous home and was never exercised. He is a good dog, not a bad bone in his very big body but he is very immature and still thinks he is a six week old little pup. He is very loving and playful and is good with other dogs and although is good with children we would only re-home him with teenagers and over - this is due to his lack of manners and training. He will need an adopter with the time and patience to train him - He cant be left tin the home alone so needs someone at home a lot - He is quite good on the lead and does not pull - Tyson will require lots and lots of things to do and see.

 


Bailey- REHOMED
6 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross
Bailey was tied to post by his owner and watching them walk away knocked his confidence for six - we know who his owner is but they will not communicate with us. it seems Bailey has not had a great life –
he flinches a lot as though he is expecting a good hiding and does not like loud or angry people.
He likes calm and kind people and is very loving and obedient when he lets you into his world. He will need to be the only pet in the home. He does kennel guard so if you are interested you
will need to see him out of his kennel. He still has a long way to go trusting humans again


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


Lucy- REHOMED
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 .



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.


Shadow - 3 year old mastiff cross (large)

Shadow came into us as a stray - we contacted her owners who refused to speak to us thus giving us no history on her. She is very shy with very little confidence but once she gets to know you she is very loving, gentle and well mannered.
She is housetrained and seems ok around other dogs.
We don't think she would cope with a busy, noisy home so a nice calm quiet home would suit her,
Older calm children may be fine- she good on the lead


Toffee - REHOMED
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.


Milo
2 year old American Bull Dog
Milo has not come from the best of homes and can be a little shy at first , this is just trust issues –
but once he gets to know you he is great, loving, playful and well mannered - he is fine with other dogs.
He would need an lots of exercise and an adopter experienced with large breed dogs - children will need to 12 +
