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.


PETER PUG Male 4 Years Reserved

Peter came to us with his friend Mouse but they can go home separate. He is so cuddly and wants to be friends with everyone. He is good with other animals and has lived with children. He was very overweight when he came to us which was not helping his breathing but has lost some whilst being here. He ideally needs someone with experience of this breed as it can come with a lot of health problems

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 does need to lose some weight but we are working on this and is already shedding the pounds!

STELLA ROTTI CROSS Female 4 Years Reserved

Stella is a happy friendly girl and loves a cuddle. She was a little overweight when she came in but she is now down to a much healthier weight. She does pull a little on the lead at first and prefers calm dogs. She has lived with children but we would home her with older children as she is with us because she was jealous of the new baby in the house

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

MOUSE PUG Female 10 Months Reserved

Mouse came in with Peter

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.

BENNY BEAGLE CROSS Male 1 Year Reserved

Benny is a young lively dog with bundles of energy. He is good with other dogs we're not sure what he is like with cats. He came to us because he can be destructive when left. He is very friendly towards everyone he meets and would do well with someone to take him on plenty of walks. He has been rehomed for a short period of time but was too much to cope with. We would rehome him with older children as he can be quite boisterous

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


Bruce is a happy boy. He is excitable and can be a little boisterous but he is a young dog and has a lot of energy to burn! He walks nice on a lead and is used to living with children from the age of 2 years. He seems fine with other dogs but can be overpowering. He is such an affectionate dog and loves to have cuddles. Bruce came to us due to his owners moving and no pets allowed.


Hugo has came to us due to his new owner having allergies. He is a baby so his new owners will be starting from scratch and he will need a lot of training and he does like to explore everything with his puppy teeth. He is currently being fostered. He is more pomeranian so he won't grow very big

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

TYSON ROTTI CROSS GSD Male 2 Years Available

Tyson came to us as his owner had allergies and struggled to walk him as he can pull on the lead especially when he sees another dog. We are not sure what he is like with other dogs as he can bark at some and ignore others. He has lived with a cat and children from the age of 6 years. He is a very affectionate boy but needs a firm owner who can carry on the training we have started with his walking

POPPY POODLE CROSS Female 11 Months Reserved

Poppy is a friendly playful and energetic young pup. She has been reluctantly brought back to us due to her having separation anxiety. She does not like being left and she will need an owner willing to put the time and effort into her being able to be relaxed when left. She is used to children and is good with dogs and best with confident cats but she can bully shy cats. She loves people and would benefit from a busy household where she will get plenty of walks and cuddles.


Major is a clever dog, really benefiting from mental aswell as physical stimulation. He is unfortunately not coping very well in kennels and enjoys spending his time outside. He has briefly been homed on a farm however he was not suitable around livestock. He gets on with most dogs and has lived with children from the age of 10 years but doesn't like cats. He loves to be out playing with a rope toy and chasing a ball and he has a few tricks to show off too!
