LAST UPDATED ON 27 March 2020



Titch
3 year old American Bull dog (Large)
Titch came in as a stray so we have no history on her. She is very stressed in kennels and is losing weight daily
Away from the kennels Titch is a very loving, gentle and well mannered dog. She is very laid back and loves her cuddles
She is very good on a walk and does not pull on her harness.
She will need to be the only pet in the house, she does react to dogs if they show her aggression so she should always be kept under control and on a lead when other dogs are around.
.She will need an experienced adopter (no children)


Rosie
10- 12 year old Staffie
Rosie is a wonderful dog, she is very loving, playful and clean
She loves sitting at your side and being cuddled. She is fine with children (6+) but will need to be the only pet.
She likes chasing a ball and this has done her good as she has lost some weight and is much fitter now.
She will make a wonderful companion for a retired person or couple


Dash
14 month old SBT
Dash came in as a stray - his owners refused to claim him because he was too boisterous and randy! This is true but it is something that can be sorted with time and patience.
Dash is a very loving dog and demands cuddles and kisses typical of the breed. He is very active and can be mouthy. He has been known to be a little amorous but this will stop in time.
He is not very playful and has not been socialised around other dogs so does not know how to react so we will be looking for a pet free home for him as he needs one to one obedience training with no distractions.
Dash is a very good dog and just needs someone who will not give up at the first hurdle. Children 8+


Milly REHOMED
10 year old cross breed (medium)
Milly has found herself in need of a new home due to both of her owners passing away within a few weeks of each other,
this has lead to stress related alopecia but her fur is slowly growing back and we are now seeing much more of her personality as well. She is now pleased to see you and her little tails wags all the time now. she is very loving and gets all giddy when you pat her - it must still tickle her quite a lot
She is best as the only pet in the home, she would suite a retired person or couple to give her a new and loving home


TESS REHOMED
9 year old Patterdale Terrier
Tess is a wonderful little dog, she is very loving, playful, loves cuddles. She is great with other dogs (neutered only)
NO CATS/RABBITS etc.. as she has been a working dog.
She will need an active family, children 6+ will be fine
She will need to be kept on the lead when on a walk due to her working background

 

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.


Coco
6 year old Labrador
Coco is a very loving dog, she is good with children (6+). She is very active and giddy so will require a good amount of exercise and stimulation.
She has never been socialised with other dogs and does not know how to behave around them so she will need to be the only dog in the home. No cats - regular grooming required


Oliver REHOMED
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.



Sadie REHOMED
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 REHOMED

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.


Lexi REHOMED
4 year old terrier cross


Lexi is a lovely little dog, she is very loving, likes to be held and cuddled. She is ok with dogs (no cats) She will be fine with children 6+.
She is very playful and loves her toys - she is very needy and likes to be with you. So someone will need to be home a lot.



Tao
8 year old Shar Pei

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.
We have added Turmeric & black pepper to his hypoallergenic diet and he is much better and has had no further issues. He will be available on our foster scheme
(please visit our website for T&C's of our foster scheme) He will be fine with older children
