LAST UPDATED ON 12 August 2017



Tess
12 month old Lurcher (large)
Tess is a lovely, gentle and very loving young lady.
She is a little shy at first but soon warms to you
She is the same with dogs, shy at first them loves to play with them.
She will be fine, although a little clumsy with children (6+)
She chases cats . She will need basic training


Sasha
11 year old Alsatian
Sasha is very fit and agile for an old lady. She is very gentle, laid back, calm but very aloof. She does not show much affection a little wag of the tail and the odd wash of the hand is all the gives. She is good with other dogs and does not mind cats.
She is a little nervous so we recommend she be kept on a lead when walked. She would be an ideal companion for a retired person or couple




Peter
3 year old Husky cross
Peter is quite aloof at first and can seem quite uninterested in anything - but once you get to know him he can be very playful
He does not show much affection and is very chilled in the home
He is good with children (6+) He has no issues with dogs - but again is indifferent to them - He has been a family pet.

Giz is a wonderful little dog, very loving, happy and playful....
He is great with female dogs (neutered).
He is fine with older children (8+)
NO CATS

 

 



Halo - REHOMED
20 month old cross breed (medium/large)

Halo is a great dog, very loving, very sociable around other dogs and good with children (6 and over) He thinks cats are toys and wants to play with them!
He has high energy levels and because he has spent most of his life in and out of various rescue centres he will need basic obedience training. He needs daily grooming - his adopter will need to be able to provide lots of exercise and he will also be active in the house so patience and tolerance is needed from the human.

 


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.

Bob- REHOMED
RETURNED ADOPTION 18/4/17
6 year old Terrier cross
Bob is a great little dog, very loving, playful and housetrained.
He is not bothered with dogs on a walk and is fine with nice female dogs but will need to be the only pet in the home as he does not want to share cuddles.
He will need an adult home only (visiting older children should be fine) Bob is a dog that's needs one to one - not a busy household –
a quiet relaxed home will be great for him - ideal for a single person who wants great company. No cats


Cha Cha
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


Jenny - REHOMED

4 year old Shar Pei
Jenny needs a home with people experienced with this breed and their many quirks. When she is happy she is a wonderful dog, playful, loving and a good house dog.
She does not get on with all dogs so will need to be the only pet.

Patch was handed in by her owner who when asked about her history ran off never to be seen again!

She is a very loving little Staff - loves sitting on the sofa having cuddles. She likes playing fetch and is quite active for an older dog.
She will need to be the only pet and will be fine with children over 6. She is a little bit thin but she should fill out in time.



Rufus

8 year old cross breed (very healthy & fit)

Rufus is a very loyal, loving and obedient dog. He loves playing and chasing balls - He loves his cuddles and his belly rubbed.
