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

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.


Fred is a handsome boy, a bit shy on first meeting and could do with his confidence building but he is such an affectionate dog, gets on with other dogs although he has not had much interaction with them at the kennels. He has lived with young children but he is quite boisterous so we would rehome him with older children as he is likely to knock smaller ones over. He did briefly live with a cat when he was a puppy but we don't know what he would be like now. He walks well and loves to play ball!

ZION STAFF CROSS Male 2 Years Available

Zion is a friendly boy, walks lovely on a lead and is good with other dogs however he should be the only pet as he can get quite jealous which is the reason he is with us. We would rehome him with older children

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

DOTTY JACK RUSSELL Female 15 Months Available

Dotty is a quiet girl on first meeting but when she is out walking with you one on one she really shows her personality. She is good with other dogs and has lived with children over 5 years but she has not lived with cats. She is with us due to the child in the family having an allergy to her

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


Titch is a sweet girl, can be nervous on first meeting so she will need someone patient. Although she has lived with children from the age of 5 years she would prefer older or sensible children. She is good with other dogs and could probably live with a cat too. She is with us due to her owners ill health

TAZ JACK RUSSELL Male 4 Months Available

Taz is a cutie and full of energy! He is currently being fostered and due to him having high interest we will choose the most suitable home for him. He is fine with other dogs and he is used to children but has not lived with cats. He is a puppy so will need someone who has the time to train him. Taz is here due to his owners working long hours


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

RASCAL JACK RUSSELL Male 9 Years Available

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
