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. He has learnt to walk on a halit and is much easier with it on. 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 calm, confident handler. He can be a bit bouncy for a lot of dogs so we tend to mix him with strong females which he will be submissive to. He really just needs someone to give him a chance and show him the ropes. He is a smart dog and learns quickly, you just need to teach him what you want him to learn. He has done some clicker training and loves to learn. Smirnoff is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. No cats.

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 mixes well with the other dogs here but I think he prefers to have the kennel to himself. He is no trouble in the kennels, he is clean and pretty chilled once he has had a walk. 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.
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 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. In fact he is a bit of baby around people, if he thinks he's done something wrong he goes all silly and worried. Dollar is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.

If big, black dogs are your thing then Oliver is your man. He obviously has a lot of lab in him as he likes to carry stuff around...his toys, his bedding, even a stainless steel food bowl (just like his namesake he really does ask for more!). He loves his lady friend that he shares with and they often have a good play. He is very strong on the lead but we are working on halti training to help with this. Despite being big and strong he takes biscuits like a little lamb. Please note Oliver mixes well with other dogs but would prefer to live alone or with a similar sized bitch. He is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs before applying for any dog.
Tilly is a pretty, spayed, nearly four year old girl who is tall but slender ( 25-26kgs). She started off life on the streets of Greece but was rescued as a puppy. She has been in the UK for a long time in foster homes but hasn't been fortunate enough to find her own forever home. Tilly (like many rescue dogs) can be worried by some new people initially but once she knows you she will be your friend. Tilly is great company, very affectionate, loves cuddles & fuss, walks nicely on the lead either on her own or with other dogs. She has good recall and travels well in the car. She is crate trained. She has regular visits from older children who are dog savvy and she enjoys their company. She has spent time around horses and cats. She is experienced in a busy environment such as county shows and is also a seasoned camper! She has the potential to learn dogs sports, obedience and anything else that will keep her busy as she is highly intelligent and sensitive. She needs kind leadership and firm but loving boundaries. A quiet, experienced home is sought, either with an easy going , preferably large and playful male dog or with no other dogs , who is willing to stick with Tilly for the long term and work with her to overcome her remaining fears. PLEASE contact Give a Dog a Home UK to discuss if you think you can help Tilly. She will make a faithful companion to the right person, for the rest of her life.Someone willing to stick with Tilly for the long term and work with her to overcome her remaining fears. There is plenty of advice and support available from people who know Tilly well to help her make the transition from her foster to forever home happen smoothly. Please contact by email: email@example.com or By Phone: 07896 041561
Amber is a proper, old fashioned sort of GSD. She is strong, stocky and not too tall. She is a confident and out going girl. Certainly not the sensitive, timid type. I think she is the sort of dog that would protect her family in the unlikely event she should ever need too. She is also confident with other dogs. She is a strong character though and likes to be top dog. She shares her kennel with a bouncy, adolescent, male dog and she has taught him to be respectful of other dogs and not to jump all over them! Despite her bossy nature she doesn't mind sharing treats, food etc with her kennel buddy. She loves her walks and can be strong on the lead (like most of our big dogs). Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked. Please read the rehoming criteria on page one of available dogs before applying for any dog.
Pearl is a very sweet collie, she has probably not seen much of life, everyday she is getting more and more confident, she would suit a home with people who wont expect too much too soon from this gorgeous girl, who are willing to let her take things at her pace. She is fine with all of our dogs, not the best dog to walk on a lead as she is worried, so patience and kindness for Pearl. Vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped and vet checked.
