DOGS LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME



Adoption Process
  • Step 1: If you see a dog you like then please make an appointment to meet them.
  • Step 2: Once you have met and decided to adopt a dog a home check will be arranged.
  • Step 3: Once your home check has passed the adoption is then completed and you can pick up your new family member!
Fees & What's Included

Our adoption fees are £130 for dogs and £65 for cats.
All dogs are:
  • Vaccinated
  • Microchipped
  • Neutered
  • Wormed
  • Come with 4 weeks free insurance

If any of the above are not complete upon adoption vouchers covering their full cost will be issued. The adoption fee covers some of these vet costs - the rest is covered by fund raising.

Adoption Requirements
  • A part of your garden must be enclosed and secure. A minimum 4ft fence/wall is required, depending on the size and nature of the dog this may be higher.
  • Dogs can not be left on their own for more than 5 hours on a regular basis.
  • Dogs must not be left to sleep outside at night or during the winter.
  • If we know a dog is friendly with cats this will be specified below. If this is not specified then the dog will not be re-homed with cats.









All our dogs are regularly walked by our band of volunteers!!




Ted





Ted has come from the stray pound where his time was up.
He is a Staffy x of about 12 months of age.
He jumped straight into the car to go to the vets & wanted to fuss everyone there!!
Ted could learn a few manners on the lead- he is very strong so will need an owner who can handle him.
Update- Janice, our trainer has been working with Ted & our volunteers & Ted is getting much better on the lead.
( He looks really cute with one ear up & one down..  plus the longest tongue in the world!!!)


This is what Michael, one of our walkers has to say about Ted-
I got to meet Teddy the smiley staffy at the kennels today.
Teddy is a very energetic lad and decided he was talking me for a walk today rather than the other way around.
 Like all good staffys Teddy will cover you in mud whilst offering staffy kisses or try to sit on your lap
 ready for staffy snuggles because that's just how he rolls!
😀
Update- Teddy is learning not to pull on his lead and is doing very well!!!


Teddy recently had a day out in the Peak district with 2 of our volunteers.

Please consider a Staffy or Staffy cross when looking to adopt a dog.
They are always overlooked due to negative portrayal and due to this sad fact many are left behind in rescues and the stray kennels. 
Despite misconceptions the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a loyal, loving and reliable breed.

CHESTER




Chester is a crossbreed of approximately 18 months old.
Sadly Chester has not had a good start in life and was recently physically abused by a man with a stick which has resulted in him being nervous of some men until he gets to know them.
Chester is brilliant with females and fabulous with men he knows once they have gained his trust.
Due to this Chester would need a quiet home with no children or other pets.
Please do not be put off by this description Chester genuinely is a fantastic dog who will make the right owners a loving, lifelong companion.

SONNY





(Sonny likes to push his nose through the kennel door)

Sonny is a 3 year old sbt X.
Sonny is a lovely boy and is a big cuddly bundle of energy.
He enjoys long walks with our volunteer Wayne.
Due to his energetic nature we would be looking for a home where any children would need to have reached teenage years.
We are aware that when in a home Sonny was calm, quiet & quick to learn new commands. 
Sonny has been waiting patiently for his new home & will make a loyal & loving pet.

Ruby





Ruby has just arrived from the stray pound where she was handed over by her owner who also 'had no time for her'!
She is a Kelpie  x Collie who is only young and could benefit from some training.
She is very friendly and,once she calms down, walks well on the lead.
She seems ok with children and other dogs.Ruby is smaller than she appears in the photos!
She is a really friendly girl who will make someone a smashing companion.
Can you give Ruby the home she really deserves -you'll be rewarded with plenty of sloppy kisses!!!

SAM






Sam has also been getting used to walking on the lead and is doing really well.
He is a little shy of strangers at first but with a treat he is soon the best of friends.
( He has barked at a 2 year old so we think he may be better with older children)
Sam is about 12 months of age and will need ongoing training on his lead.
This shouldn't take long as he seems to be a quick learner.

Sadie doesn't look as if she likes her new collar!!

Sadie is a 3 year old Staffy who has come to us from another rescue.
She looks black from the photos but is in fact a very dark brindle.
Sadie is a smaller type staffy, with a very friendly temperament & is a real laid back girl.
She was very friendly with Sonny at the vets and travelled well in the van.
As you can see from the photos, Sadie likes getting in the mud -she'd been out that afternoon with one of the volunteers!!

BLADE



Blade is a JRT of about 7 years of age.
Blade will need a new owner with lots of experience with dogs .....and preferably Jack Russell's!!
Blade wants to be top dog in the home so we would need someone with patience to teach him some manners.
Janice, our trainer will be available to assist any new owners.
But please don't be put off by the description as he can be a very loving , friendly chap but does seem to not like certain dogs.
Blade would probably be best as an only dog as when he lived with 2 other dogs he needed to be the top dog.
Can you provide the stable home life that Blade needs?

Please see below profile with attached photos of Megan as discussed . My contact number is 07816325965 and can be emailed on g.e.collins@hotmail.co.uk 

 

 

Thank you for looking at my profile my name is Megan I am a Cross Border Collie with a bit of Greyhound and Whippet in me. I am 9 years of age and was born on the 11th May 2007. I am currently in very good health and am fully house trained and a very sociable and friendly dog who likes to spend time with my owner and can get on well with other dogs.  I enjoy long walks and running off the lead chasing my ball and retrieving  this and throwing it back to my owner especially in the countryside. I also enjoy trips to the seaside and like to play on the beach or sea however I’m not a big swimmer. At home when I’m not resting in my basket I like to play with my soft toys.

 

I like to eat a dry mix chicken dog food with tender meaty chunks sometimes mixed with mini Cesar country kitchen special selection fillets twice each day. I enjoy treats such as denture sticks and dog biscuits bit partial to a little bit of fish or chicken when going spare.

 

As I am a Border collie I’m a sensitive creature therefore don’t like lots of noise my dislikes includes raised voices, Vacuum cleaners, excessive banging through DIY tasks or shotgun fire and thunder and lightning.  However despite these issues I will provide my new owner with lots of love, affection and companionship for years to come. My ideal owner would be someone who has plenty of time to spare and enjoys the outdoors and lots of walks.






 

Gizmo is nearly 2, he's a border collie cross with boxer and Labrador.  His owners can't cope with him as he's left for long periods of time alone and because of this he's started being destructive.He's fine with other dogs  he chases cats, he has not been neutered, he does live with small children but is clumsy and has knocked them over and occasionally nicked food from there hands so he'd be better round older children. 

He is chipped but not sure if vaccinations are up to date.
