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.


CANDY ROTTWEILER CROSS Female 6 Years Available

Candy is a lovely friendly girl and is happy just having the company of people. She does not like other dogs or cats and she would be ok to be homed with children over 12 years because she has not lived with young children. She has came back to us due to her owners not being allowed pets in their property. Candy is such an affectionate girl with a great personality

AGGI JACK RUSSELL Female 2 Years Available

Aggi is with us due to the older dog in the house not getting on with her and it would cause fights between the two. She is used to young children but can't be homed with other pets. She is quite shy on first meeting but is a fuss pot once she knows you

ROCKO JACK RUSSELL Male 2 Years Available

Rocko is a happy boy with a real terrier personality! He is ok with other dogs but not cats and should be homed with older children over 12 years as he has not lived with children. Rocko needs an owner that is used to terriers as he has come back to us due to his owners not being able to cope with the terrier in him

CUBBY LURCHER Male 1 Year Available

Cubby has unfortunately came back to us due to his owner's working hours increasing and him being left for long periods. He is good with most dogs however he can sometimes get over excited when out walking on a lead and can be quite vocal. He is such an affectionate dog and loves the company of people. He can be quite shy around new people but once you have won him over he shows you his lovely personality


Hank is a big lad and can be quite strong on the lead. He is friendly towards people but is not a fan of other dogs especially if they come up close to him. He has lived with young children but we would rehome him with older children just because of his size. He is with us due to his owners not having the time to dedicate to him anymore due to work hours

COOKIE GREAT DANE CROSS Male 7 Years Available

Cookie has been with us for such a long time now, 3 years in fact and he is such a gentle giant. His only issue is his love of food and he is possessive around other dogs which means he can't be homed with another dog. We can only assume he had to at some point fight for his food as he was brought to us from another rescue centre as a stray and has briefly been rehomed but came back to us due to him going for another dog when food was around. He is an old boy and would love a rug to lay on and he walks so lovely on a lead


****** SPECIAL PLEA ****** Scruff loves everyone and often goes out with volunteers for the day as he is a real favourite here. Scruff should be an only pet although he does have a few doggy friends but he does have a fascination with small furries. Scruff is looking for a home where everyone is used to large breed dogs and can be firm but fair, if there are children they should be older only because we do not know much about his past. He is very friendly and loves the interaction with people and playing ball. Scruff came back to us due to his owners finding him too much to cope with.

LOLA SPRINGER SPANIEL Female 9 Months Reserved

Lola is a lively active pup, is used to children from age 9 years. She is fine with other dogs but has not lived with cats. She is with us due to her being too much to cope with

CHARLIE STAFF Male Approx 8 Years Available

Charlie is a happy boy with a charming personality. We do not know too much about him, he was found as a stray in Stratford and came to us through the dog warden. He is a friendly boy and walks well on a lead. He is hit and miss with other dogs and we would rehome him with children over 12 because of his unknown history. He does have a bit of arthritis in his back legs so would benefit from an anti inflammatory daily, this is not a costly medication but LAR would carry on with the cost of this if the new owner wishes. With his arthritis he does have good days and bad

FALCON LURCHER Male 1 Year Available

Falcon was due to be put to sleep at the vets for not getting on with the other male in the household but the vet deemed him so lovely and friendly that they thought rehoming was the best option so he is with us. We would rehome him with older children because of his size and we would not rehome him with another dog


Bruno's owner passed away and he is unfortunately now in kennels waiting for his new home. We do not know much about him so would rehome him with older children but he is friendly and doesn't seem too bothered with other dogs but he is depressed in the kennels and appreciates any time he gets with us

POPPY WESTIE Female Approx 6 Years Available

Poppy has not had a great start in life, we know nothing of her history as she was dumped at the shelter at night time in a cage with no note and she was rehomed around 1 year ago and has recently come back to us due to her elderly owner not being able to cope with her. She needs to meet you a few times to trust you so she will need a patient owner. We will rehome her with older children and she doesn't like other animals. This girl needs some stability and love

MEME, MILLY & HONEY CHIHUAHUA Female 6 Years & 5 Years Available

Honey is Milly's daughter and Me-me is sister to Milly. They are all very close and for this reason we are seeking a special home willing to take on these lovely girls. Milly has knee displasia and will struggle to walk very far she seems to have had this for a while. Me-Me has this condition in one knee but not as severe as her sister and Honey has had a few teeth removed. Unfortunately we do not know too much about them as they were left at our shelter gates with a note containing little information. They will need a patient owner as they don't like to be crowded. Honey is very much a lap dog and loves to be with you and Me-Me is the most inquisitive. Milly is the most unsure but they are all fussy girls and ideally need an owner with chihuahua experience

RASCAL JACK RUSSELL Male 9 Years Reserved

Rascal is with us due to the unfortunate passing of his owner, Rascal was found next to his owner and he has been mourning in the kennels. He was briefly rehomed but he does not get on with other dogs, he has not shown this side to him at the kennels as he is so sad but he can't be homed with other animals and he has not lived with children so we would rehome him with children aged 12 plus. He is such a different dog out of kennels, happy and so much more confident. He loves his walks and walks lovely on an extendable lead

MOLLY STAFF CROSS LURCHER Female 6 Years Available

Molly is a bouncy excitable dog with lots of energy to burn. She loves everyone and loves being out walking, she gets on with most dogs but not smaller ones which is the reason she has come back to us, her owner had taken her out and let her off the lead but she did not get on with a small dog in the park. She is used to children from 12 years of age and she does not get on with cats

BELLA DOBERMAN Female 4 Years Available

This gorgeous girl is friendly and she has lived with young children. Bella has been mounted so many times by the male in the household that she has bald spots down her sides and on her ears, this may grow back but because of how bald she is there is a chance it may not. She is with us as her owners couldn't cope anymore. She does pull a bit on the lead and she can bark at some passing dogs but off the lead she loves playing ball
