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.


Buddy has been on holiday!

He had a great time as you can see.  Buddy is looking for a foster home.  He can't walk far.  He's just looking to be a companion to someone.

Roxy has lived with another dog, and seems friendly towards the dogs around her. She walks ok, but can pull a little. Roxy as you can see is a bit overweight and will need an owner to continue the diet she has started here, so lots of walks and less treats! She has not lived with children before. Roxy is looking for a loving home with a couple or family with older children. She loves her walks and a fuss. With us due to a relationship break up.

He has visited the vets for his vaccinations and has had a dental. Whilst there he met other dogs and people. He loved everyone.

Bridie is a return to the shelter. She was homed a few weeks ago and we have been told Bridie was perfect. She has been good in the home, travels well as long as she can't see out and had been good on her walks, meeting other dogs and people. The reason Bridie came back to us was due to an incident with another dog at the park when Bridie didn't feel like saying hello. This was a surprise to us as she had often been out and about with Jasmine and they never had a cross word. Bridie is also a regular at Melton market, when volunteer Judy takes her out for the day. Bridie also joined us on our sponsored walk this year too.

BELLA BOXER Female 2 Years Available

Bella is a boisterous girl, as Boxers can be. Initially she can be quite shy and reserved, but that is understandable as Bella is deaf. Bella needs an experienced owner who is willing to put time and effort into her training, as she can be quite excitable on her lead. Bella has lived with children, but again can be overpowering, so older would be better. She can get along with other dogs and likes our other deaf dog Daisy. With us due to her being given away on a trial basis and not getting on with the new owners dog.


Max is a friendly chap as you can see from his smiling picture. He is a large boy, more the size of a Dalmatian. He can walk well, but does pull when excited.

Scruff is with us again. He went to a new home for a few weeks, but his new owners found him a bit more than they could cope with. He felt more bonded with some members of the household than others and made this known. Scruff is wonderful here, he loves everyone and often goes out with volunteer Tracy and her two dogs. They walk in the parks in Melton and he visits her home. Scruff should be an only pet although he does have a few doggy friends.
