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 Reserved

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


Bruce is a friendly lad with bundles of energy. He is affectionate and enjoys the company of people. He is used to young children but sadly he has been returned to us due to the young child in the household tormenting him. He doesn't like cats and can overpower other dogs. With him having shar pei in him he would benefit from his ears being cleaned every now and then

RUBY & SID JACK RUSSELL Male 5 Years & 8 Years Available

Ruby (5 years) and Sid came to us together and we will rehome them together as they get on so well. They are with us due to a marriage split and are used to children from the age of 4 years. They are fine with other dogs although they can have the odd bark at a passing dog and they do not like cats. They are both very friendly and would fit well into any home

HOVIS & NELLY LABRADOR Male 10 & 12 Years Available

Hovis is Nelly's son and we will rehome them as a pair as he loves his mum so much! They came to us carrying a bit of extra weight so we are working on getting them down to a healthy weight. They have not lived with children so we would rehome them with older children. They are fine with other dogs but do not like cats. They were reluctantly given up but their owner has been evicted. They would be happy with short walks and deserve a nice retirement home

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


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


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.

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 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.

Charlie is a shy young dog and he loves to be fussed once he trusts you and he also loves to be out running.

Ruby is a lovely girl and is used to young children and good with other dogs. She does have separation anxiety so will need an owner that will be with her most of the time. She is also not fully housetrained. She does chase cats so may not get on with living with one. She walks well on a lead and enjoys being around other dogs so would do well as a second dog. Ruby is with us due to her separation anxiety and her owner not being in a position to give her the care she needs anymore

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 so this means she gets the privilege of being carried while the other two walk back. Me-Me has this condition in one knee but not severe, it just pops out every now and then. 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
