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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Smirnoff is a lively bouncy boy who requires quite a bit of exercise. He will also need some lead training as he is strong initially. However, he is not really the sort of dog for lead walks, he is more of a country rambler. He does have a great personality once his exuberance subsides. He is a fast learner and will listen to a confident handler. Smirnoff is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. No cats.

This very handsome chap is Bean's brother. He is every bit as nice as her. He also is gentle and sweet with a steady temperament. Like Bean he would like a calm home environment as he is sensitive. Someone has taught him to sit and he sits at every opportunity hoping for a fuss and kind word. He is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

Sandy is a great boy. He has obviously been loved in the past. Quite how he ended up in the pound is beyond us. Someone has cared about him at some time as he has a pin in his leg which repaired a break. He was x rayed as one leg is slightly longer than the other. The vets who x rayed him advised that no treatment is necessary for his leg, he will just always have one slightly shorter than the other. It doesn't cause him a problem at all. He is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs before applying for any dog.
Bonnet is such a sweet and submissive girl. She obviously has had a terrible start as she is very timid initially. Once she trusts you she is extremely loving. She will need a quiet and understanding home where she will be allowed to come around in her own time. She would benefit from having a kind and confident canine companion. UPDATE 16/4/2016 Bonnet has changed a lot since she first came in. She is still submissive by nature but once she is settled into her environment she's no different to any other dog. She bounces against the door whenever anyone walks past as she wants a fuss. She jumps up with excitement when you go in her kennel. Loves her little walks. No more the scared dog hiding in the kennel, these days she's the cheeky one who shoots out when you open the door. She will take a few days to settle in a new home but she soon comes out of herself. She is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs before applying for any dog.
Ziva has unfortunately had to come back to us due to a bereavement so through no fault of her own. She is a very loving and affectionate girl with her family and friends but can is unsure and aloof with strangers. Therefore we are looking for a quiet home for Ziva where she doesn't have to be a social butterfly. She mixes well with other dogs and gains confidence with other dogs but she has lived without other dogs too. She will not cope in a busy environment. We feel she could be a Shepherd cross as her personality and behaviour is very similar to the breed. She will bark if someone comes to the door and will be suspicious of them if they are not a regular visitor but is extremely loving with those that she knows. She will make someone a very loyal companion. A family member took Ziva on for a short while but unfortunately they found the environment in their household too busy for her and Ziva found it too stressful. Ziva enjoys and needs plenty of off lead exercise daily. Cat trainable She is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped.

DOLLAR LABRADOR CROSS/GSD APPROX 5 YRS OLD MALE NEUTERED Dollar is a bit of a goofball. He has been with us quite awhile now but he still retains his positive attitude. He loves going for walks but once he has been he is happy to doze on a comfy bed. Even happier if he has a big chew or a stuffed kong. He is a bit greedy but this does have it's advantages as he'll do anything for food! He can be choosy with his doggy friends and seems happiest with med/large bitches for company. He has been friendly to every person he has ever met here. Dollar is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

Giles is a very handsome big lab. Typical of his breed he is very loving and affectionate. He loves people and being with you. He is a little string initially on walks but this is just excitement and he soon settles and walks nicely. He is responsive out on a walk and is well behaved. He likes to sit nearly or on your feet! Giles is a real people person. He is not interested in other dogs, he ignores his kennel mates and walking buddies. He'd happily be an only dog. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

Flash is quite a sensitive lad. He was a bit bewildered initially but he is starting to ask attention from us now. He is another steady collie, not in any way manic. He has been very easy to look after as he is so biddable and he will mix with any dog. In fact we would have to watch he didn't get bullied as he is the type that would let a another dog push him around. He is easy to walk on a lead and very relaxed in the kennel. He'd likely prefer a quieter home as a busy environment may be a bit much. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.
