LAST UPDATED ON 5 May 2019



Molly 3 year old American Bull Dog x

Molly was abandoned by her owner in an empty industrial estate, this has traumatised Molly and this has had a very negative effect on her. She is not coping out in the kennels and has lost weight and she has become withdrawn. What we can tell you is that she is very loving, obedient and lazy - she is very timid this is probably due to her not trusting humans anymore. Molly is good on walkies with other dogs providing they don't bother her or try to be amorous with her, she has been heavily bred off so she is not wanting doggie affection, due to this she would be best as the only dog in the home. She has met a cat and was not bothered - but if the cat was to have a go at her she may retaliate. She is a very gentle dog and is good on or off the lead. A nice quiet laid back home would be best - No children. Anyone wishing to adopter her will have to get to know her over a period of time. She will need someone home most of the day as being abandoned has left her with separation issues


Jack

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.



Rocky
5 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier x
Rocky has been passed around most of his life thus he has never been able to attach to a human, we have been made aware of at least 3 different homes but for some unknown reason he keeps being sold on or given away this has caused him to be shy and untrusting. Once he trusts you he is very loving and gives very good cuddles. He likes to play and go for walkies. He will need to be the only pet in the home.He will need a quiet calm home as he is very sensitive - all Rocky wants is a human of his own and one that will give him a permanent home.



Nala- REHOMED

12 month old Lurcher

Nala is a very attentive dog, always looking to please you. She walks very good on the lead. She is great with other dogs and very loving. She does not like a bath and finds this very stressful and is also reluctant to travel in a car.
She is a quick learner and will need ongoing training. She is very active so lots of things to do and plenty of walkies are a must (children 6+)


Lola- REHOMED
14 month old SBT
Lola was handed in for re-homing so we know a little bit about her. She has been around children 6 years and over, she is very active, playful and very loving. She will require on going training in the home and when out on a walk. She loves chasing tennis balls she just needs to learn to bring them back. However Lola has reacted to the kennel environment in a negative way - she is very stressed and is not enjoying her time here, we have seen this before and we know if a home is not found soon her temperament and health will deteriorate. She will need to be the only pet and she will need an active home.



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- REHOMED

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

 



Tilly REHOMED

3 year old American Bull Dog

Tilly is a wonderful dog- she gives the best cuddles. She is very attentive, obedient and very loving. She is good with children (5+) and housetrained.
She is unsure of other dogs so would be best as the only pet.

 


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.


Barney- REHOMED

5 year old cross breed (small)

Barney is our little pocket rocket, he is very loving and sociable and loves to play with other dogs. He is good with children (5+) and is housetrained.

You will need secure and solid fencing. Barney is very active so will need plenty of thing to do. No cats



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.


Tilly

Tilly is a wonderful dog, she is very loving, playful and fun. She loves chasing balls and loves to go for walkies with Pablo who is her best mate.
She is fine on a walk no issues around other dogs she just want to play but some dogs find her too much as she does get in their face. Children 8+ NO CATS
