If you are going on holiday please do not apply for one of our dogs. We cannot hold these dogs it is simply NOT fair on them. So if you are NOT in the position to take them immediately (following a homecheck) DO NOT APPLY.
Sorry but we do NOT home to households with under 5's.
If you are outside our 20 mile radius then please only apply once you have been homechecked by a local rescue to you, your vet or your local dog warden and you have written proof that you have passed.
We do not know what our dogs are like with cats as we do not have cats at the rescue, it will be down to the new owner to cat train the rescue dog.
Sorry but all emails will be ignored that do not adhere to the above. The adoption fee varies from £150-£200. It is dependent on the age of the dog and whether or not it has been neutered. Often elderly or disabled dogs have only a nominal adoption fee. All the dogs are vaccinated, micro-chipped and vet checked. Adult dogs are neutered unless for some reason they can't be. Ages are often approximate as many dogs come without history. If you have problems with the application form please email us direct at email@example.com
Coral has been in a home and has been very much loved. Unfortunately she found the built up area and all the busyness of the area very stressful. Her owners tried so hard with her but as they don't have a car to drive her to the countryside for walks they felt it would be kinder for her to find a home elsewhere. She will need a quiet home in a more rural area. She needs routine and stability. A busy household would not suit. She was very stressed on her first couple of days in the kennels but by the third day she really started to relax and enjoy her new setting. Her previous owners found her reactive to other dogs where they walked her but she has been good with them here. She made good friends with Ludo (who is very bouncy!) and also has been exercised with other dogs without issue (however, we feel it best not to home her with another female just in case). In her previous home she could be very fearful of strangers. We have found her to be very submissive to people here and with new people she can cower, however she does come around quickly, especially as these new, strange people are usually volunteer walkers who have come to take her over the fields. She has many different walkers and we haven't found an individual who she is too scared to interact with. She is very happy and relaxed in the kennel environment, I think she feels safe. We are in a rural area so all her interactions with people and other dogs are in a pretty stressfree environment. We have found that she is fearful of cars passing close on the lane (she will bark at them). She is such a submissive girl, she just wants to be somewhere she can feel safe. No cats. She is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs before applying for any dog.
Cat is very affectionate. Friendly, litter trained and loving. She is used to living in a home as she has been fostered since very young. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.
Jenny is a fabulous, out going, sociable and friendly girl. She loves everyone and is good with the other dogs too. She is essentially still quite puppy like although she is adult size. She is brilliant fun and nothing fazes her. She is a big,strong girl but she is just keen to get on with having some fun. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

Dear, sweet Gridley. His nickname is Scooby doo as he is a bit of a wimp. He is very sweet and gentle but quite sensitive too. He has met lots of dogs, including small dogs, and been great. He loves his little walks now that he has got braver. He likes company so another dog would be a bonus for him. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

Nova has been a very much loved pet. Unfortunately, a year ago, her life became very stressful due to a new baby. Her owners tried for months to help her learn to live with the changes but to no avail, she just became more and more stressed. She came in to us very anxious, hyped and overweight. We have had her with us a couple of weeks now and she has made massive improvements. She has been losing weight with a careful diet and exercise regime. Exercise alone has helped Nova massively. She is much calmer and more relaxed. She was anxious of strangers but even this has improved as we get different people to walk her, now new people mean new walks, and Nova lives for her walks. She loves being around people she knows but she also has learnt to be more independent and is happy in her own company too (especially with a stuffed kong or a nice, low fat, cows ear!). Due to negative past experiences we will not home Nova with children. She needs a home with easy going people who will not spoil her. She is very much the terrier so will need plenty of exercise and a home without cats or small furries. She'd likely prefer to be an only dog. As she has lived in a home we have found that she is very clean in the kennels. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

Charles put the spring into springer! He is busy, busy, whizzy, spaniel. Even when he's just let into the little paddock he is rushing around like he's looking for something. He reminds me of the police sniffer dogs. He does stop though, especially if there is a chance of a fuss or a belly rub. In his kennel he is actually pretty chilled. Needless to say this lad won't suit walks around the block or in parks. He needs to dash about in the coutryside or on the beach. He is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

Dear sweet Serena (now called Nellie') has come back to us through absolutely no fault of her own. The circumstances of which can be discussed with any serious applicants that come to meet her. Nellie has been very much loved and her Mum has done a fantastic job of helping her improve way beyond what we could have hoped for (and in such a short space of time). She is brilliant in the house, very clean. She is fantastic on walks and has a brilliant recall. Nellie has been around horses and other animals without issues. Although she did enjoy herding the geese. She has been used to going most places with her Mum and has learnt to be brave around the vast majority of people. She does still remain wary of big, burly men. Maybe this is a remnant of her past? Or maybe just because she is sensitive. Nellie also was fine to be left alone for short periods. We have had such a huge amount of information from Nellie's Mum and will endeavour to find her the perfect home. The home and owner she had was perfect for her but sadly it was in Nellie's own best interest that she came back to us. Nellie will need to keep her name. She knows it well and is very happy when you use her name. She's had a lot of change recently, it wouldn't be fair to change her name too. She would like a country home again, without young children or big, burly men. In the right home Nellie is as near perfect a dog that you could hope for. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs before applying for any dog.
We think Gabriel must be Merles brother. They are similar in so many ways and have the same, lovely, gentle personalities. Gabriel is a really good boy and is never a minutes trouble. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs before applying for any dog
