Abu and Ally are adorable 6 month old Sprollie siblings. They have come from a rural home so can be a bit scared in new surroundings but are very friendly once they know you. They need a bit of work on lead but we just know these pups will give so much love and entertainment to their new owners. Abu is recovering from ringworm so Ally has certainly been in contact with it, although she does not show symptoms. Ringworm is a common skin infection caused by a fungus. It is normally easily treated with creams which can be obtained from a pharmacist but it is highly contagious. It is spread by contact with infected people or animals, contaminated objects or soil. We have taken measures at kennels to minimise risk of ringworm spreading to other dogs or people but this is not ideal. We are looking for a superhero foster or adoptor to give these guys a chance and care for them in a home environment. Ultimately, we are seeking individual homes for these 2. If you think you can help, we would be happy to guide you through caring for these gorgeous pups. If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill in an adoption questionnaire and a member of the rehoming team will be in contact. Once we've had a chat an appointment can be made to meet the dog.

Banksy is looking for a very special someone to win his heart. He has had a rough time lately and because of this he can be slow to give his affection but once you win him over, he is silly, youthful and a delight to be around. He is only about 6 months old and found the kennels completely overwhelming at first. He was terrified, but in time, he has learned to trust us and we can now see his playful personality. Banksy loves playing with other dogs and would do well in a home with a canine companion to give him confidence. However, due to his tendency to be fearful, he will need an experienced owner and a fully secure garden. He is not suited to a home with young children.

* Emergency Appeal * Theodore has come on hard times in life but he is being an absolute soldier. He was surrendered to the pound as he was no longer needed. He was likely a working dog but has now lost most of his sight. He still loves a walk, especially through the long grass, and can even be a bit strong on lead. He is a sweetheart who will snuggle into you, once he knows you’re there and trusts you. Because of his vision impairment, he can be startled by sudden noises so he will need a quiet home and, for his own safety, he will need a completely secure garden.

Tally is a country boy. He is quite unsure and is finding kennel life a bit busy for his liking.

* Direct from Home* Here is some of what Jack’s owner had to say about him.... Jack is very friendly and loves company. He is excellent with children and loves to be petted. Jack is very active and would make a wonderful companion on long walks. He is 5 years old and looking for a home where he can run around. Jack needs a new home as he does not get along with our younger (male) dog but gets on perfectly fine with a slightly older (female) dog. Apart from not getting on with our younger dog, he is a great companion. He is not aggressive. Jack is fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

Jenny is one of our latest Tricky Collies. She has been severely undersocialised and because of this, is skittish around new people and does not yet walk on lead. It will take her time to build up a bond with a new owner. Jenny would particularly benefit from another dog in the house. Jenny will need an experienced owner who is willing to continually work with her. A completely secure garden is a must for Jenny.

Jack came in when his owner could no longer care for him. He is affectionate but has lived a sheltered, rural life and would suit a quiet home where he can potter around and keep you company. He does walk on lead but not very well at the moment so we are working on this.

Lola was lucky enough to get into a fabulous foster home, here’s what her fosterers had to say about her... “Lola is an absolute sweetheart. She fitted in straight away with our dogs and has totally won us over. She loves her cuddles, both with people and dogs. She's improving on the lead. All around, she's a very easy puppy to have around, and completely endearing.” If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill in an adoption questionnaire and a member of the rehoming team will be in contact.

Jasper sadly came back to our shelter as his new home didn’t work out. Hasn’t he got mischief written all over his face?! Jasper’s original family were told he was a Labradoodle when they got him as a pup, we think he may be some sort of Bearded Collie cross although whatever mix he actually is, we can tell you, he is 100% adorable! He's a big, happy, hairy, bouncy adult-dog-moonlighting-as-a-puppy kinda boy. Did we mention very bouncy?! It's hard to catch him not smiling, and he'll do almost anything to make his people feel as happy inside as he does. He was surrendered to us with great sadness, due to someone in his family becoming ill. He was so loved, there is no doubt about that. His family wants him to go to a wonderful home with someone who has the time needed to dedicate to him. Jasper is a lot of dog, in the very best way. He is just a year old after all. He has a lot of energy, but is learning when to unleash it (in other words, is figuring out that inside time calls for inside manners.) He is super obsessed with his people - once you're in his circle, he turns into a giant, fluffy cuddlebug. He absolutely adores having dog besties so he can be rehomed on his own or with other pooches who like to play and play. He will need some help with training, like learning how to walk nicely on a lead and that putting his bum on the floor gets lots of attention and treats, unlike jumping up. He can be a chewer so he will need some help with that and lots of mental stimulation will help resolve that. He really has the most fabulous nature. Jasper also loves children....although he would be a bit too exuberant for younger children. He's not suitable for living in close proximity to chickens but other than that, he gets on with just about everyone he encounters. A VERY secure garden is a must for Jasper, he can and will escape otherwise and we don’t want that. Jasper may be a big boy, but he's got a sweet soul. Need a big, goofy boy in your life? Then you definitely need to ask for Jasper. He's the tenderest, goodest boy around. And come on, look at that smile! At the minute, Jasper is a little shy in the kennels and on introduction to new dogs but with people out on a walk he transforms into a goofy, very jumpy Labradoodle or Collie type. He’s probably not for a first time dog owner! If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill in an adoption questionnaire and a member of the rehoming team will be in contact.

*Direct from Home * Sadie strayed into a lovely family, who microchipped, vaccinated and got her spayed in order to set her up well for her new home. They would have kept Sadie but unfortunately she is causing a lot of stress to the cats who are in this home for a long time, by chasing them. Sadie has no issue with the resident chickens, dog, horse and donkey. Here is some more of what her guardians had to say about her... She is excellent with our 3 young boys and our dog. She is not suitable for someone with cats however which is why we cannot continue to keep her. All in all Sadie is a very sweet natured, friendly and funny dog who can make people laugh. She is energetic and loves playing and catching balls and because of her compact size she will suit someone who prefers a small dog breed. Sadie has an old cosmetic injury (see photo.) The vet we (the owners) have seen with her fixed the nose somewhat but the stitches in the bottom just opened up again. She consulted with other vets but they all agreed because it does not bother Sadie in any wait and she eats and drinks normally, that there is more risk of infection due to intervention than a cosmetic repair would be of benefit. So we decided that we are not looking into it further. It does not bother her in any way only that she is not going to win any peagant competitions with it! The owner’s vet estimates her age to be between 2-5 years. She said it is hard to guess because of the few front teeth that Sadie lost due to the above mentioned injury to her lower face. Sadie is crate trained, not fully house trained yet. If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill in an adoption questionnaire and a member of the rehoming team will be in contact.
