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:

JAVIER STAFFI Male 3years Available

Javier was found wandering on London road in Leicester. He is a wonderfully people friendly dog who loves his walks and a fuss and a game of fetch. We are now in a position to re-home him. Javier has put on some weight, since joining us and made a new friend in Jasmine, but he does not like male dogs as much. With that in mind we would advise that Javier be re-homed as an only dog, only because as he was a stray we know nothing of his history with them. That said he does walk very nicely passed and along side the other dogs here at walking time, so would not be a problem when out and about with his new family. He is a joy to have around when out and about in the kennels. The picture was taken on a morning when he was allowed out to help with the cleaning. As you can see, he was very happy to sit with his toy.

COOKIE GREAT DANE CROSS Male 6 years Available

Cookie is with us again. He is a wonderful boy who just needs the right owner. Cookie is very well behaved in every way except when food is around with other dogs. He needs to be an only pet with no contact with other dogs in his home or theirs. He walks well and his last owner had no problem with him out and bout on his walks, but he had a partner with another dog and Cookie would have to stay at that house and problems arose. We have not seen it here, but all dogs are fed in their own kennels alone. He has been home with a staff member for the day, met other dogs and behaved very well. We have taken him on our sponsored walk. We do stop and food comes out, but again, no problems when he's with us. Cookie will do well if he can just find the right owner.
