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 is such an affectionate girl with a great personality

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

AGGI JACK RUSSELL Female 2 Years Available

Aggi is with us due to the older dog in the house not getting on with her and it would cause fights between the two. She is used to young children but can't be homed with other pets. She is quite shy on first meeting but is a fuss pot once she knows you

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 Reserved

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.

GUCCI STAFF Male 10 Years Available

Gucci is a compact little staffi with a lot of love to give. She is used to children from the age of 4 years, she is good with other dogs but doesn't like cats. She is with us due to her owner moving in with their parent

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

JESSIE AMERICAN BULLDOG Female 4 Years Available

Jessie is with us due to a relationship split. She is nervous around other dogs and she tends to keep out of the way of cats. She also needs to be homed with older children. She is very friendly but seems unsure of most things around her. She needs a new owner she can put her trust in and show her that everything is not as scary as she thinks

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


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 but he is depressed in the kennels and appreciates any time he gets with us

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 she seems to have had this for a while. Me-Me has this condition in one knee but not as severe as her sister and is unlikely to worsen and 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

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

WASP PUG Male 7 Months Available

Wasp is a special boy and he will need someone with a lifestyle that suits his needs. He was brought to us with an obvious leg problem, he has a permanently dislocated knee cap and this may never need anything doing however this could change when he is fully grown. He does however need surgery on his other back leg as the knee cap comes out of the socket easily, this means he will be prone to early arthritis. We will get this surgery done and decide on the vet's advice whether he is best to recover in a home or with us until we deem him recovered enough to go to his new home. He is great with other animals and any potential owner needs to be aware he needs to be kept slim and not over exercised, this will be the best course of action for his knee and hip joints. Ideally he would be best as a second dog as he gets on with others so well and loves to play!

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 should grow back as she could have seasonal alopecia which comes and goes but nothing to be concerned about. 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

LULA MALAMUTE Female 3 Years Available

Lula is a sweetheart and friendly towards everyone she meets. We would rehome her with older children and she is hit and miss with other dogs, she can bark at others to start with when walking. She should ideally be the only pet in the household and she does not like cats. Lula is with us due to her owner having an operation and not being able to give her the attention she needs
