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



POPPY JACK RUSSELL Female 3 Years Available

Poppy is a happy girl and has bundles of energy. She prefers smaller dogs but has not been around cats. She is a friendly girl and the reason she is with us is because she did not like the youngest child in the house. She tends to stay out of the way so she would prefer an adult only household or older sensible children


Lexie is a lovely girl with lots of love to give to everyone she meets! She has lived with young children but she does not like other animals and can sometimes pull towards other dogs when out walking. She will make a great family pet as long as you don't mind a bit of drool!


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

BORIS BASSET HOUND Male 5 Years Reserved

Boris is a character. He is friendly and he is used to children from the age of 8 years old. He is fine with dogs but we do not know what he is like with cats as he has not been around them. Boris is with us due to his owner's working long hours


This friendly girl loves to be around people and is so happy. She is not a fan of other dogs however there are a select few she has made friends with! Marley did pull on the lead a lot when she first came to us but with regular walks she does walk relatively well. She can be homed with children over the age of 10 years and she does not like cats. Marley is with us due to her being too strong on the lead, with some training she will make an amazing companion. Please view her video below


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.

Zeus is a happy young pup who has unfortunately had a few homes already. His original owner found him too much to cope with and he eventually ended up in a home with another dog but the other dog found him too boisterous. He is a friendly boy and good with most dogs but not cats. He has not lived with children and we would home him with older children because he is so boisterous and has no manners. Zeus will need some training and with a stable home he will make a fantastic companion

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
