MADRA @ZaraGreyhound @DrShmoo Oh look at her face! She’s looking so happy to be away from the kennels! She’d be an amazin… https://t.co/1Gr5sT6WCo

Alby has just recently arrived into us, more details on this boy coming soon.

* Direct from Home Adoption * Sam (black female) and JJ (white male) are 7yo (neutered) siblings. Their elderly owner was no longer in a position to mind them so a neighbour is currently looking after them, unfortunately this neighbour is not in a position to keep them so we are looking for a home together (if possible) for them. They have been described as very friendly, lovely dogs who love attention and affection by getting a good belly rub or scratch! Their recall is very good and they are very clever dogs who have learned their new routine. Can anybody find it in their hearts to give this pair a forever, loving home please? ....They really deserve it.

Bumble has just come in....some people may recognise him from a post in the Galway/Mayo lost & found Facebook page where he was found curled up in the gable corner of a house. He is emaciated and his body is torn & bruised, probably from living rough and struggling through the undergrowth as he sought out a warm place to call home. Bumble is an absolute darling, and in fact he slept for most of the first three days he was with us. He is very hungry and needs building up slowly so that his tummy can cope. He is however, very excitable around other dogs and will need someone with some training experience to foster him until he is ready for homing. This poor guy is only a baby and has so much still to learn, but we just know that one of you out there will be just the perfect match for this snugglebug who has only seen the darker side of humans up until now. We are determined to show him that there IS a better life out there with humans who actually care.

Roxy and Rinn are sisters who seem to be very under-socialised in relation to the big wide world. They can be a wee bit noisy at the moment but we know they will settle down well once away from the stresses of kennels. They have just arrived in and are still under assessment.

* Booked * Daphne is possibly Boxer cross with something smaller which means she has all the good qualities of a Boxer but is less energetic and fits into a smaller space...a pocket Boxer if you will! Daphne is gentle, quiet, calm and a wee bit shy. We know she will blossom into a stunning adult who will be an amazing addition to any family

Riona has just had surgery to repair an old dislocated hip injury and has come through it very well. To her credit she must have had a lot of pain during her short life but she still loves humans. She is still a youngster though so we envisage no long lasting problems post op. Riona HATES cats and is not good with other dogs either....she is a stunning looking girl who doesn’t feel the need to share the limelight! ;) Riona really is a beautiful looking, sable coloured girl, almost like a smooth coated Lassie (rough Collie) except her ears don't point upwards. She has lots of love to give. We think she would suit children of 6 years and older, a secure garden and someone at home are also important.

These two guys came in together, surrendered due to their owners ill health. They are happy and full of life and would love to move on to their new home together too. Spike is a little bit nervous in new situations but Rocky thinks life is just made for living and he will snuggle in, loving his cuddles any time day or night!

Betsy is a friendly, happy Collie girl who is struggling in kennels. She is an active girl who will need someone at home during the day and a secure garden. No young children as she gets very excited when people run around and she may end up trying to herd them into the kitchen! Betsy is very affectionate and will make a great companion for an energetic older family or individual. She is house-trained, lead-trained and has a great positive outlook on life, especially considering how she has been let down by humans so much in her life.

These two Lab X boys are still only youngsters with their whole life ahead of them, plenty of time to overcome the rocky start they have had. Right now they are dealing with a bad dose of mange, but is easily treated and they will be ready for homing soon. They are good buddies but will be happy to be homed separately so that they can get all the attention for once. Zeus & Apollo have lived with children and we hope that any new owner will take the time to do some basic training to help them reach their full potential.

Florence is a female Collie pup who came in with her brother, Quentin. They are about 3 months old with nowhere to call home. Nice & straightforward, not traumatised or abused. Just surplus to requirements. Collie homes please ie they will need active & busy lives. They will also need training classes to help them become the best dogs they deserve to be.

A little beaut, this boy is a soft, gentle, tricolour Collie puppy.

* Booked * Rosie is an exceptional girl who has won us all over in a very short space of time. On the outside she is a regular Collie girl but inside she is soft & gentle, calm and affectionate, respectful and well mannered..... they don't come much nicer than this! We think she may be about 5 or 6 years old and will prove to be a very loyal companion for the lucky person who gets to adopt her.

* Booked * Shada is yet another victim of landlord discrimination. She is a six year old Standard Poodle who has been a much loved pet and her owners are heartbroken that they cannot keep her. Shada is a big, strong girl who needs an active family with plenty happening to keep her busy. Her coat will need regular maintenance and she is an indoor dog who will want to be very much part of the family.

OK, OK so yes, I admit it...I got a little bit carried away during my photo shoot, posing this way and that way; trying out my serious pose and my casual one (pretending I didn't even know the camera was there!) Well I hope after all that effort I put in, that you will tell me how handsome I am from all angles! My name is Nemo (no, I'm not that little fish lad from Finding Nemo.) I am a happy, two year old rather dashing Collie (if you listen to the ladies here anyway who are besotted with me and call me a dream boat.) Unfortunately no-one from my fan club is in a position to adopt me, so I decided to try this online malarkey and see if I can find my perfect match. I guess you would like to know a bit more about me? Well I am active (hello, I am a Collie after all) but I'm not as high energy as many of the other Collies here and I definitely like my sleepy time too. I also enjoy long walks on the beach and listening to Johnny Cash. I am a gentle boy and I adore being fussed over. I like nuzzling into people and getting heavenly chest rubs and bum scratches. My whole face lights up....I just feel so special when people tell me what a VERY GOOD BOY I am. I can be a bit unsure at times but once you take me for a walk and we have a chat, you'll see how quickly I warm up to you and want to be your new best friend. Now...apparently having good looks and a sweet nature isn't enough to help bag me a home??? It's madness I say! You see, I am only one of many, many unwanted Collies....and it's very difficult for the folks here to find homes for us all. I do hope my stay here won't be a long one. I'd like to live somewhere a bit more low-key and with a family of my own, like I had before. I think urban living would be a bit much for me, but if you're kind, live in the countryside and you have an enclosed garden, I'd be over the moon to come live with you.

We think Seán is a Husky X Collie and he is a busy, energetic boy who will need an active lifestyle and a very secure garden. Seán loves people, any age or any size. He is a combination of two working breeds and therefore he needs to fulfill his natural instincts, this means lots of exercise and more importantly, lots to keep his brain engaged. That may not suit those of us whose exercise regime just involves lifting the telly remote control throughout the evening!

Poor Tim is another young unwanted Collie boy who is a little bit overwhelmed in kennels right now. He is gentle and quiet but we do know that once we build him up with good food and lots of love, he will blossom into a stunning Collie with all the requirements that the breed need. A secure garden, active lifestyle, a family where there is someone at home during the day and possibly experience of the breed, are all things on Tim’s wish list.

Bee is a little small for a Pointer but there is no doubt that her size does not impact on her ability to work. She is a sweet natured, shy girl..... that is until she sees a bird! Bee would definitely be best suited to a family who understand the breed as this instinct will need to be managed correctly. Poor Bee has a condition called "Cherry eye" which has been left untended and she will be getting this sorted shortly. Bee is affectionate and kind and will make a fantastic pet for an active family.
