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




Charlie has a big personality for such a little dog. He was a scared dog when he first came in but he is slowly coming out of his shell. He can be nervous around new people so he will need someone patient and with older teenage children as he has never lived with children. He is not great with other dogs and should be the only dog but has walked next to a few and not bothered with them. He does not like cats. He is with us due to the ill health of his owner

Barney & Ziggy have unfortunately come back to us after being in their new home for a few months due to Ziggy not getting on with other dogs.

MINTY JACK RUSSELL Male 7 Years Available

Minty has had a hard time since reaching his senior years. His owner died and he was brought to the shelter. He has been rehomed but has come back to us due to him being a very stubborn terrier and not liking being told what to do. Since being brought back it had been discovered he had a mass in his stomach and has had surgery to remove his spleen. Minty will need a terrier savvy owner as he can lash out when he does not get his own way. He is a real cutie and would prefer to be the only pet and somewhere he can have little and often walks
