MADRA @Griff101 Of course! We rehome pretty much all over the country now 👍 The most efficient thing to do is fill in an… https://t.co/Qjrfy51Yy3

* Goldie has been re-homed.* These three girls came into the pound together after being found in a neglected state but luckily the dog warden reached them in time. We think it may be a mother and two daughters but they are equally happy being together or apart and are now ready to move on to their new homes. Bailey is maybe 2 or 3 years old and is a big soft, gentle girl. Goldie & Tanya seem to be a bit younger and are more puppyish & full of fun Tanya is the beautiful girl with black and tan markings and Goldie is..... the golden girl (no surprises there!) Hounds make magnificent pets as they are low energy and easy to live with. They don't like being left alone for long periods though so there should be someone at home during the day or a second dog to keep them company.

Keano was surrendered to the pound and although he is coping very well, we would just love to make his visit here a short one. We think he is about 6 years old, although he does have a little "old mans face" that makes him appear a bit older, and he is small to medium size so would fit into small corner in most homes. He is a very mannerly gent and is quiet, calm & clean in his kennel, and causes us no problems at all. Keano is a Beagle x and is used to the outdoor life but I'm pretty sure he could learn all about the comfort of his own bed by the fire very quickly. He would suit an older person who wants a low maintenance guy but who still enjoys regular exercise and someone who will provide all the companionship & comfort that Keano deserves.

Rocco is a super guy who is a very sprightly 7ish years old. Although Rocco was surrendered to the pound, the information we have is a bit sketchy due to his owner becoming very elderly and taking up residence in a nursing home. What we do know is that Rocco was a well loved & cared for companion. Poor Rocco is feeling the loss of his previous life dreadfully and we are hoping that with Easter upon us that someone will look kindly on him and offer him a new home. He will need a secure garden as he has an independent nature and he loves his regular walks. He is a doggy dog and we do not think he would take kindly to be overly smothered with hugs & kisses or being dressed up in the latest doggy fashion. Once he gets the basic home comforts he will be quite content and he will prove himself a wise & loyal companion.

Oscar is a robust, energetic Collie x who is about 3 or 4 years old. He is great with other dogs but will need a secure garden so that he cannot go off exploring, as he has a huge interest in all that goes on in the world around him. It is possible that this may be the reason that he found himself in the local pound in the first place, so Oscar also needs an interesting new life where there is lots to keep him entertained. We think Oscar would be a grerat family pet but he would most likely suit children of ten years and upwards as we do not know his history.

Sydney (aka Todd) has come back to us all grown up and with a new name that suits his elegant new look. He has really grown into a stunningly handsome young man and now that he has reached maturity he has made very clear decisions on what he likes and does not like. Sydney was always a little shy and although he has improved hugely in that regard, he has decided that children are really not his thing. He does like them but finds all the noise & bustle of a busy household just too much for his laid back personality. He also can still be quite shy of men and will need a new owner who can continue to work on those fears. Apart from that Sydney needs a secure garden and someone at home during the day. He bonds quickly with his humans and would not suit being alone for long periods. Sydney is a typical Lurcher, a guy who likes nothing better than to chill on his beanbag after a few laps around the park.

Many of you will have read Sam's incredible story during the week from a broken shell to one of sparkling personality! https://www.facebook.com/madradogrescue/posts/10155614930148122 *Sam has been rehomed

Milan arrived to us at the start of July, completely and utterly terrified. He would hide in his kennel shaking, petrified of our touch. We don't know what kind of life Milan had before finding himself in the pound and then to us but we do know it wasn't one where he experienced gentle hands or much kindness. He finally began to gain some trust in a couple of the kennel crew and began to go on walks. He was still reluctant to be touched and was sensitive about having a lead put on but he allowed us to do it.

Hi my name is Chrisi. All you need to know about me is that I love cuddles and rubs from my owners. I didn’t really have the greatest start to life and because of that i sometimes like to spend time on my own, but I’m sure I’ll grow out of it once I’m in my new home. I am great with other dogs, and I’ve since made a few doggie friends. I can’t wait to find my new family so i can give them as much love as they will give me.

Brenda is a dog we consider a "tricky" as she came into us from another hoarding situation in 2016. She has been in the care of MADRA for one year and four months. She was deeply traumatised when she arrived to us and remained this way for months. Thanks to dedicated foster mum Sonia who first fostered Brenda and then she was transferred to the healing arms of Sinead. She has improved tremendously following her foster breaks and she now allows us to handle her and put a lead on her. She's an older girl around 10 years old. She's back in the kennels now due to unforeseen circumstances and we are really hoping we can find Brenda a calm home where she's accepted for her eccentric ways and where she can live out her days in a calm and loving environment. We won't lie, she's not an easy case but she has lived most of her life in a certain type of environment which we can't erase for her but that doesn't mean that she can't live a full and rewarding life. Leaving the only life she has ever known has left her with fears and insecurities but we believe that with a solid foundation of love, trust, and patience, Brenda can be happy.

Hi everyone! I'm Trixie and you better believe it when I tell you that I am full of tricks in every sense of the word! The people here were told that I am super clever and that I know lots of tricks and that I can even say my prayers at night! The thing is, I’m a bit too stressed out by the noise and constant comings and goings in the kennels so I haven’t felt up to showing off all my party tricks here.
