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.



Major is a clever dog and knows quite a few commands. However, he is strong on the lead and does need some training. He is used to children from the age of 10 and he is good with other dogs, he can't be homed with cats. He is a friendly boy and would do well in a home where he will get plenty of mental stimulation as well as physical

RYKA LURCHER Male 10 Months Available

Ryka is a young energetic dog. He was found tied to a gate and is such a friendly boy. He is good with other dogs and although he is used to small children we would rehome with older children as he is so big and still a baby himself, which is the rehome for him coming back to us. He was quite boisterous around the young children in the household.

LILY AMERICAN BULLDOG CROSS Female 15 Months Available

Lily is a friendly young dog with a lot of energy. She is good with children although with her size she may knock small children over. She walks well on a lead but can get quite excitable when she sees another dog and pull towards them! She is good with dogs but can get a little scared if they get too close! We do not know what she is like with cats. Lily is with us due to her owner moving away and not being able to take her.

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!

SCAMPI STAFF Female 5 Years Reserved

Scampi is a cute staffi and loves the company of people, she does not like being in kennels and would love to be in a home.

She is used to older children and can't be homed with other dogs or cats.

STELLA ROTTI CROSS Female 4 Years Available

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

DEEFA LURCHER Male Approx 2 Years 6 Months Available

Deefa is a handsome boy. He came to us very nervous and quiet but he is starting to come out of his shell and really bring his lovely personality out. He is used to children aged 12+ and we don't know what he is like with cats. He seems friendly with other dogs but can be nervous. He is shy on first meeting but once he is your friend he will love you forever. He came to us as his owner went into hospital and could no longer care for him

LUCY SALUKI CROSS Female Approx 1 Year Available

Lucy as we have named her, was found on Gaulby Lane between Billesdon and Houghton on the Hill a week before Christmas. She was wearing a red collar but was not microchipped. As no one has claimed ownership of Lucy she is no available to adopt. She is a friendly young dog and she likes to be out running. We would rehome her with older children as we know nothing about her


****** SPECIAL PLEA ****** Scruff is wonderful, he 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. He has visited the vet and behaved well with both people and dogs he met as we walked in. 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. 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 Available

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


Diesel was a shy nervous boy when he first came to the shelter and is really starting to come out of his shell. He is used to children from the age of 12 years. We do not know what he is like with cats and he seems unsure of other dogs, barking at some and ignoring others. He has typical collie traits and is collie size. Diesel is with us as his owners are going into full time work and Diesel would be left alone all day

CHARLIE STAFF Male Approx 8 Years Available

Charlie is a spritely 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 very happy and 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.


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. Bruce came to us due to his owners moving and no pets allowed.

WILLOW SPRINGER SPANIEL Female 11 Months Available

Willow is a young energetic dog and needs a lot of exercise. She came to us as her owner found owning a springer too much. She is hit and miss with other dogs, it seems she would prefer to be an only dog and she cannot be homed with cats. She would fit well into a busy household with lots to do!

MISSY AKITA Female 1 Year Reserved

Missy is a lovely young pup, full of energy and loves everyone she meets. She was a bit underweight when she came to the shelter but we will build her up and she is still young so has some more growing to do. She is good with children and most dogs she meets but we don't know what she is like with cats. She is with us due to her simply being unwanted

JAVIER STAFFI Male Approx 4 Years Available

Javier was found wandering on London road in Leicester. He was very quiet and submissive when he came to us but he loves the company of people and loves nothing more than a cuddle, his walks and a game of fetch. Javier has put on some weight, since joining us and seems a happy boy. He is hit and miss with other dogs and we would advise that he be re-homed as an only dog, only because as he was a stray we know nothing of his history with them. That said he does walk very nicely past and along side the other dogs here at walking time, so would not be a problem when out and about with his new family. He is a joy to have around when out and about in the kennels. Take a look at Javier paddling in the pool!

COOKIE GREAT DANE CROSS Male 6 years Available

Cookie is a wonderful boy who just needs the right owner. Cookie is very well behaved in every way except when food is around with other dogs. He needs to be an only pet with no contact with other dogs in his home or theirs. He walks well and his last owner had no problem with him out and bout on his walks, but he had a partner with another dog and Cookie would have to stay at that house and problems arose. He has been home with a staff member for the day, met other dogs and behaved very well. We have taken him on our sponsored walk. We do stop and food comes out, but no problems when he's with us. Cookie will do well if he can just find the right owner. He has been with us for a while now and he is such a gentle giant, he would be happy with a rug to sleep on surrounded by his new owners.
