Dogs in need of good homes...

Things to consider before adopting a dog:- Am I able to give the exercise and mental stimulation a dog requires on a daily basis? Will the dog have someone with him/her for most of the day?  We insist that the dog is not left alone for more than 4 hours in the day.  Am I prepared for the costs associated with keeping a dog (i.e. vets bills and food)? All animals are micro-chipped, adults are spayed/neutered and flea/worming treatment is kept up to date.

We will ask that you visit any dog you are interested in at least twice. Dog introductions may take up to 3 visits.
A home visit is required before any dog is adopted. This is to ensure that the environment is suitable (i.e. garden has lockable gate and fences are secure).

Please call to book a viewing appointment.

Minimum charge for our dogs is £125.00
Please note all payments are cash only.


BELLA DOBERMAN Female 5 Years Available

Bella is a friendly girl who is used to being around newborn babies. She is fine with most dogs but can take a dislike to some and can occasionally bark. She has been around cats but this is the reason she is back with us, she was not getting on with the cat in the household. She came to us with not very much hair on her sides and ears, the vet has said this looks like seasonal alopecia and comes and goes, it does not need any treatment. She can pull on the lead but does eventually calm down. Playing ball is her favourite thing to do!


Bruce is a friendly lad with bundles of energy. He is affectionate and enjoys the company of people. He is used to young children but sadly he has been returned to us due to the young child in the household tormenting him. He doesn't like cats and can overpower other dogs.
