    MIA is in foster, and we hope its a failed foster situation! Watch this space
    [​IMG]

    Mia is a beautiful sweet lurcher girl but is very nervous and will need someone who can help build her confidence and give her the time and attention she needs.

    She is such a pretty lady, and loves to be fussed and cuddled but is wary of other dogs and tends to walk very closely to your leg when out of the kennels, as though she is worried that something dreadful is going to happen.

    She is in good health, friendly and affectionate, loves a zoom in the field and happy to take treats, nice and gentle – she would benefit from a quieter home with someone who knows lurchers and can give her the reassurance and love she is looking for. Probably not a good choice if you have cats or furries, and we would prefer no small children – her ideal home would be with an older couple who can give her the home she deserves, surrounded by peace and calm and love where she would be the only dog.

    ELLIOT

    [​IMG]



    Elliot is a very friendly little boy who loves people and is very happy to be around them. We would say that he would be fine around children who were experienced and confident as he might be very bouncy in his puppy enthusiasm.

    He is friendly and inquisitive with other dogs and wanted to play with others – he is at an age where he needs positive interactions with dogs to learn from and have fun with too. He was really unsure on his cat assessment and absolutely not sure what to make of them – he couldn’t work them out at all and in true young dog style got bored of them quite quickly!

    Elliot was great with toys and interacted well. Loves toys and playing, the more the merrier in fact and he was also very good around food – loves treats and no trouble with me being around his bowl whilst he was eating.

    Elliot loves a fuss and has no issues at all in being handled – he loves to be stroked and touched and is quite happy to have a harness put in him for safe walking which is a good job as he can be quite skippy and Bambi like when out and about.

    Hes a very sweet natured and lanky puppy who needs some input and training – he will be a fantastic dog in the right home where they understand his puppy ways and are able to train and guide him. He was quite happy in the car and travelling and has no issue with traffic noise etc – he can be a bit barky in the kennel but this could well be excitement and frustration and learning from the others!

    He is a really lovely, friendly happy dog. What a sweetie! His picture doesn’t do him justice BUT he needs lots of input and training as does any young dog really – please do not under estimate the time and commitment that a young dog will need and it will be a requirement of your adoption contract that you attend puppy classes with him. We will need evidence of this and a contact number for the training – it MUST be positive and reward based reinforcement.

    LOLA
    [​IMG]
    Lola is very friendly towards people and is actually over the top in her welcome which I think is stress/anxiety based as she can very easily cower if she thinks you might get upset with her. so the initial behaviour is trying to “warm you to her” I feel. She is also very timid around other dogs, very wary and on her guard – she has been OK with the ones we have met both on and off lead but she gets worried – more so down to an expectation of what might happen from the person holding the lead. Lola has not been well treated in my opinion and has had some very negative experiences of people.

    Lola cannot live with cats – she growled and would have chased if she could have so cat free home is essential.

    Lola had a mixed reaction with toys – she does not understand how to play – it would seem that she has not had the experience of play and is unsure how it all works. She can be a bit ball obsessed so I wonder if she has been exercised with a ball – she certainly has not had any lead training which makes me wonder what experiences she has had.

    Lola was fine around feeding – no problems, but again was so wound up and stressed that she could not enjoy being fed treats. It was difficult to handle her as she was so worried and in my opinion this dog is not actually used to having nice, gentle cuddles/strokes etc. She almost panicked when I tried to stroke her all over and literally jumped all over the place with anxiety to start with – I was very gentle with her but you could feel how tense her body was, almost as if anticipating bad feelings.

    Lola is terrible on a lead and harness and in my opinion has had no training whatsoever. It does not occur to her not to pull, or to perhaps follow in another direction. Some of that is stress as well as lack of training. One of the staff has also experienced her dropping to the ground and cowering when he tried to pull her back, again as if she anticipated getting punished for not walking nicely – this girl has NOT had a nice experience at all and it makes me so very sad as she is so beautiful and desperate to be loved.

    She travelled well in the car and was not bothered about traffic or traffic noises when we got out to walk. She is OK on her own in the kennel, waggy tailed and doesn’t mind being alone but she is struggling to be calm – she is anticipating bad things and in my opinion this poor dog has not had a good experience.

    There has been no proper training and most definitely she has experienced some negative punishment techniques, and sadly she expects to receive it as well. This adds to the huge amount of stress and anxiety she has right now. She wants to do right…but doesn’t actually know how. Our plan is to help her by lots of positive interactions, gentle touch and handling and whilst she is in kennels to help her walking on a lead, gaining confidence around other dogs and with people etc. She may struggle to learn very well whilst she is so stressed and her adrenaline levels so high. We need to work on helping her trust people more, realise it is safe to be calmer and then she will have the capacity to learn quickly as underneath it all she wants to please.

    Because of this can we please suggest that Lola needs a very experienced family who will not move too quickly to fuss her. They will understand her stress and anxiety and that this sometimes will come across as manic over-activity which unfortunately is simply due to her high anxiety right now. We want her to be the only dog in a home, no children as they can be unpredictable and even in play could frighten her given how she is reacting – a raised hand and she cowers, a loud voice and she cowers, seemingly expecting to receive negative punishment, so we feel a home that is calm and relatively quiet, with adults who can take their time to help this poor girl develop into the amazing dog she could be.

    As with all our dogs we will offer full post adoption support for Lola with a professionally qualified behaviourist to advise and help. Please help us find Lola the home she deserves where she can experience kindness, gentle handling, positive interactions and love?

    Thank you.

    ASHA

    [​IMG]

    Stunning bulldog cross Asha has been with us for a while now and we would dearly love to find her a furever home. She has some very specific needs though and maybe that’s why she hasn’t had the right home offer just yet.

    This gorgeous girl has been through the mill in her short life and as such needs quite a specific furever home. She is an amazing character but needs a home with little ‘traffic’ where she won’t be forced to meet strangers and visitors and she can have her own space to retreat to if needs be. She would NOT be suitable as a dog who is visited by a dog walker or family member whilst you are out – she is not trusting of strangers and takes a long time to accept new people.

    Children terrify her – clearly at some point in her past there have been some very negative associations with children and so she cannot live with anyone younger than 16 years of age – everyone in the home would need to understand the need to allow her to come to you on her terms, when she is ready – Asha is NOT a dog who likes to be cuddled, it frightens her to have such close, stifling contact but if you allow her the time, space and opportunity to make her own choices, she becomes a very loving dog – but under her own steam, her own terms.

    Asha can’t help that somewhere in the past she’s been badly treated by a human and as such this has left her with a fear of strangers and sudden movement. This isn’t something she will get over but it is something that can be dealt with by allowing Asha a safe space to retreat to and putting her in a separate room when you have visitors call – not rocket science but sometimes in our busy lives we can get complacent, and that is NOT fair on Asha – so you would have to be committed to her well-being.

    She’s a cracking little personality underneath her fear, comical in her behaviour when she feels safe enough to relax.

    She runs loose with other dogs at kennels but she can be very possessive over toys, treats or balls so she needs to go to a home where she will be the only pet and can relax and feel safe.

    So you see it is quite a specific home that she needs – someone who doesn’t see dogs as teddies needing cuddles, who can make sensible decisions for her and allow her her own space, can put her needs first and move her away when visitors call and will not ask too much of her in the early days, allowing her to make decisions for herself about you.

    Can you offer our special girl the furever home she truly deserves? You’d have to be pretty special yourself!

    LOUBIE LOU
    [​IMG]
    Very friendly girl indeed, she absolutely loves people, cuddles, fuss, attention, having her tummy tickled…anything people related – she craves affection and has lots to offer in return. She can be wary initially, but as soon as she feels they are ok then we just become more cuddle giving people! It’s very sad that she has been waiting for a new home for a while now, but that is purely down to her anxiety around other dogs.

    She is currently in kennels in Shrewsbury and would love an active home with lots of walking and exercise.

    If she could find a home with people, a large garden, no dogs around to deal with and certainly no cats, then she would absolutely flourish without doubt. She has soooo much love to give bless her, but just can’t handle dogs….any size. So a home with a large enough garden/space with high/solid fencing, and preferably rural so that she is not constantly bumping into other dogs on any walks – she is such a loving, affectionate girl, it is sad to see her spending all that time in kennels without anyone to cuddle up to.

    As with all our dogs, we can offer full behaviourist support to work on any issues and help her settle in with you, she is house trained, great with people and will make someone a loving companion – she just needs to overcome her fear of other dogs OR be with a family who accept that fear will not go away and would be happy to learn to manage her and keep her safe.

    Please consider adding Loubie to your family if you have the space, garden and love that this little girl so badly needs? We will give you 100% support and advice on taking care of her and can provide a trainer to work with you to help you handle her out and about – a strong “watch me” and a good cheese may be all you need

    RUBY

    [​IMG]


    Isn’t she beautiful? YES of course she is and she is an Old Tyme Bulldog and aged 2. However, before you get all excited and think she is the dog for you because she is beautiful and friendly and all of that …. you need to be aware of this.

    Ruby has not been well socialised and has been used for breeding purposes. As such she is not always comfortable with other dogs and can be a little cheesed off if they get too close or in her face. She has been doing really well and is slowly developing better social skills, but she needs an owner who understands her concerns and can a) help her to get over them and b) keep her safe in the meantime.

    Because bulldogs like Ruby can also develop certain health challenges, we must find someone who has experience of her breed and can give her the life she needs and deserves. She is not a big hike cross country kinda gal, and as the breed can sometimes have a tendency towards hip and elbow dysplasia (although we have no reason to believe that is the case with Ruby) and can develop breathing difficulties so weight management is important in both these cases, she needs someone who knows what they are doing and can look after her properly and FUREVER. No more pups for this little girl – she is very friendly with people, loves fusses and to play but can be fussy about other dogs.

    Are you the right home for Ruby? It’s not whether she is the right dog for you I’m afraid!

    ROSIE

    [​IMG]

    Rosie is a 6 year old staffie girl who loves to play ball and has that famous Staffie woogle off to a fine art!

    She is OK with other calm dogs and is a firm friend of Basil, but if she meets one who is reactive she will stand her ground and shout the odds. She is doing really well in kennels and is becoming more confident and not so concerned about other dogs and we can help you to continue this great work with ongoing advice and support.

    All she needs is someone who understands her fears and will take good care of her – our behaviourist will provide post adoption support – she is a fabulous friendly girl who loves to be with people and get fusses

    WOLFIE

    [​IMG]
    WOLFIE

    Please say hello to Wolfie a handsome young lad who finds himself in rescue through no fault of his own.

    Wolfie is a smashing chap who is a little wary of strangers at first but soon comes round, especially if treats are on offer!

    He really is a super young chap who will make a fantastic companion once settled in his perfect furever home and will need a home where you will be committed to continuing the work that is being done with him – he has had an unsettled start in life but has come on in leaps and bounds since being with us and responds well to routine and consistency = oh and treats!

    He might be OK with an older female dog but with a young male it could end up quite boisterous in your home, he loves to play! – so please think carefully about bringing this bundle of energy into your home before you apply.

    He’s a real sweetheart who is very loving once he knows he can trust you – he loves to cuddle up and relax once that safety need is met.

    Fab boy, needs a good stable home with someone who can offer him that much needed care and commitment and give him the life he deserves – he is a smart lad and enjoys puzzles and treat searches, works things out quickly.

    MAXIMUS
    [​IMG]

    This beautiful boy is Maximus – he is just 4 years old, and a real fabulous dog and all he wants is to be loved – he has not had a great past and due to a relationship breakdown was forced to live outside without much interaction so he will need a loving home who understands his needs and can be around for him a lot to begin with at least.

    He is great with people, loves to be fussed, and can live with nice children who know how to behave around dogs – especially if they also know how to throw and ball and can tickle behind his ears! He has always met people really nicely and is a very loving dog – craving affection in return.

    He is great with other dogs, large and small, and we feel he would be happiest living with another dog if possible as that is what he is used to and would enjoy the company. He is a very handsome boy, and is only in rescue due to a relationship breakdown as this meant he was not getting all the time and attention he truly deserves – hence we want to make sure he gets that now in a home with company around a lot. Great temperament and will make someone a fantastic pet.

    He is neutered, vaccinated and waiting in our kennels in SHREWSBURY in Shropshire to meet you. Please complete the enquiry form if you have an amazing home to offer to this amazing boy. Maximus is a great all rounder and will tick a lot of boxes if you are looking for a friendly and loving family dog.

    KARA

    [​IMG]
    Please meet Kara a beautiful 4 year old Rottie girl who is doing well in her socialising….

    She can sometimes be a little worried by other dogs and she seems to have a distrust in men – she can be tense and afraid when approached by men she does not know but is fine if they are sensible and allow her time to get to know and trust them. We are doing some work with her to help her overcome this fear and any new home would need to be prepared to continue in the same way and take advice from our behaviourist. She was not bothered by the cats and showed little interest in them so could probably live with a cat assuming the right introductions and the ability to keep them separate and allow a slow and patient settling in period.

    Kara will need a furever home that is experienced with her breed please and would be best as an only dog in a quiet environment where she can settle and feel safe. If your household is busy and noisy with lots of people coming and going it would probably not suit Kara and be a bit much for her sadly.

    Also, no little children please for Kara as she can be a little snatchy where food is concerned having spent a period of time wondering where her next meal is coming from so if you have a toddler wandering around with a biscuit, for example, Kara may well save the child the bother of eating it! She is a loving girl who has had a rough time where she lacked love and security and stability – we need someone who understands that and can help her unpack her baggage please.

    CHICA
    [​IMG]
    Chica is a typically cuddly and loving staffie girl who absolutely loves people and snuggles. She is timid and worried around other dogs but as long as she could see them and they weren’t rushing her or on her face, she handles it really well.

    Her back end physically is very weak and looks sore so she will be wary of anything going around there for the time being and she has muscle wastage in her back legs through lack of decent exercise – so that will also help. Lack of exercise might also explain why she is wary around other dogs, she may not have seen much of the world in her life so far?

    She found her time through the cattery overwhelming. She was absolutely fine with the cats and was more worried than anything really.

    She loves toys and settled down so well with them all. She particularly likes soft toys and teddies.

    She is great with food, no aggression or guarding and loves treats of all sorts and I did a treat puzzle game with her which she grasped straight away. Not bothered at all with me around as well. She is a smart little cookie who loves to be loved and will benefit from a quieter home where she can be the centre of attention and get all the fuss and cuddles that she deserves.

    She will also need an exercise plan to help build up her muscle mass, so someone will need to be prepared to take advice and help get this girl fit again so she can enjoy her life from now on.

    She loves being handled and has no problem at all with it. She really, really loves being cuddled…a true Staffie bless her. She is also very good on the lead – no pulling, but she is very stiff behind and throws her front leg out to the side when she walks so she doesn’t go fast anyway. Again we will put together a suitable exercise plan for her to help her improve her gait.

    She was relaxed around traffic, didn’t bother at all and was happy to go in the car – in fairness, I think she was happy to go wherever I was going as she loved being with me and having company. She is struggling in kennels and is getting stressed so the chance to get her into a home would be fabulous – she will do so much better with people and attention and a few home comforts that she has probably not had much of at all.

    Our behaviourist says she is a very sweet girl who needs a loving home. She has physical/skeletal elements that need to be helped bless her but I think gentle exercise will help as well. She is sociable and inquisitive so just a happy staffie – loves treats, toys, fuss and cuddles just anxious if other dogs get too close to her and needs to feel safe. She doesn’t have any special requirements – just a loving home, with caring people and time to rebuild and relax.

    HUMPHREY IS TRIALLING A SOFA AT THE MOMENT… fingers crossed
    [​IMG]
    Humphrey is a beautiful lurcher boy, super friendly personality and very happy around people whether men or women, he loves a fuss from anyone.

    Humphrey is a big lurcher lad so would probably be best NOT to be with small children who can get knocked over easily! There is no malice, he’s just a big lurcher boy with a massive enthusiasm for life!

    With other dogs, he is very gentle and quiet when approaching other dogs whether in kennel or out on a lead on a walk, lots of waggy tails etc. and no problems at all in meeting and greeting nicely.

    In the cattery assessment he was quite interested in those small furry creatures, and he did look at the cats for quite a while – he would probably chase given the chance, but in a savvy and sensible home, it might work – perhaps best to err on the side of caution though!

    If encouraged, he likes to play, not a big fan of chasing a ball, but he does quite like soft toys – his favourite past time though is counter surfing in good lurcher stylee as we found out when he got into the food store at kennels! He is a tall lad when he stands up, so no shelf is safe – but those of you with lurcher experience will no doubt be fully aware!

    Please be aware that Humphrey loves food! Really loves his food! No aggression or guarding but be warned he will check pockets, jump for it etc. but nothing malicious. This is another reason why Humphrey is best to not be rehomed with small children as they will be easily mugged by this gorgeous lurcher boy!

    He loves being stroked and cuddled bless him, no areas to worry about at all, great on the lead, walks nicely, no pulling – unless of course there is a treat a little further up the street!

    Not concerned at all in traffic or by the noise enjoyed going out in the car for a little drive around, no hesitation in jumping in to see where the adventure was taking him.

    He can settle quietly, loves a snuggle and is a relaxed boy in kennels at the moment.

    What a sweet, gentle, loving, kind dog he is. Doesn’t answer to his name but that will come in time…or maybe he has another one that he prefers! He is a real treasure and just seems to take things in his stride. Would recommend ongoing socialising to keep him happy and to ensure that gardens are lurcher safe, and counters are clear!

    MATEY
    [​IMG]
    A very handsome 8 year old Rottie boy who is lovely with people and super friendly but not always great with other dogs.

    Sadly his previous owner is now elsewhere and Matey was at home being fed by neighbours for a while, then got moved in the pound where he was forgotten about, so he is a little unsure of the big wide world and other dogs in it. He would therefore benefit from a breed experienced home with an owner who is used to handling a big dog and will understand his preference to be the only dog around.

    He’s a great temperament and good on the lead but needs an understanding home.

    CHASE to be rehomed with DORA please
    [​IMG]
    Chase is a beautiful 10 month old cross breed pup – he is a mix of spaniel, dalmatian or pointer and as such will need a home where you are used to a smart intelligent high energy dog that is a combination of working breeds and so will NOT do well sat at home watching TV! Chase will need a home with exercise, mental stimulation, ideally a job to do or agility, obedience or disc dog stuff! He is an amazing young pup, great with other dogs, smart and well mannered, friendly and keen to do marvellous things – the right home will enjoy his energy and intelligence and get involved in activities to keep him happy and fit.

    GIBBS HAS BEEN RESERVED!
    [​IMG]
    Gibbs – Gibbs is a very friendly boy and met lots of people out and about that he liked very much :)

    Gibbs is great with other dogs and has liked every that he has met – and they have liked him too – whether out and about or through the kennel doors and everything has been really positive.

    He has been through the cattery and had a good look at the cats, but didn’t seem particularly bothered by them – as always we would suggest caution and a careful introduction.

    Gibbs can be very playful if encouraged – he likes toys of all sorts, but isn’t overly bothered with them at the moment – he is however a great fan of food!

    He has a very good appetite, likes all sorts of treats and food bless him, and no issues with people being around him whilst he was eating.

    He loves to be stroked and fussed, no problems with being handled, just a great relaxed friendly chap but can pull like a train on the lead! He is responding well to training and is easier to manage using a harness which seemed to help calm and slow him down a little.

    He went out and about and wasn’t bothered by traffic noise, happy to get in a car and travel, quite a nosey passenger actually!

    Overall he is a very friendly dog, not the usual over the top, bouncy chocolate lab. So whatever he is crossed with is a good mix! He’s very lovable, will make someone a great companion, but will need good levels of exercise and stimulation so as not to suffer from his “good appetite”

    DOMINO
    [​IMG]


    Domino is a lovely young boy, a very immature puppy inside a 10 month old body, and does not seem to have had much socialisation so lacks confidence in certain situations. Because of his age Domino needs a home where someone is around nearly all the time at least, as he cannot be left alone for long periods – no more than an hour at the most once he has settled and this to be gradually increased over time, moving up to 2 hours maximum to begin with. Please do not apply for Domino if you are out at work and cannot give him the company and support he needs right now.

    He loves to be with people and is typically very friendly but when he meets strangers he can be wary to begin with – once he decides you are OK then he will approach, perfect manners and waggy tail but he must not be forced into situations that he is not comfortable with and we will not rehome to young children who might cause him concern.

    He is a sweet natured puppy and any children would need to have experience around dogs and be old enough to understand how to behave around a baby that is going through a critical development period.

    He is good with other dogs but if they are over the top and in his face he chooses to distance himself until he feels safe and confident – again not much in the way of socialising so someone who has experience and understands the importance of this is needed as where he is timid at Once in the cattery he looked at the cats but not overly interested, chances are his immature fun puppy side might like to try and play, but he would learn really quickly not to do anything. And her certainly has no ill intent towards them but again has no experience and would need to learn.

    He is a playful boy who wants to play with you and engage and has no issues around food or taking treats.

    He enjoys being handled and as far as he is concerned, the more cuddles the better, he really loves to be handled and stroked. He is good on the lead, didn’t pull at all and was happy to trot along nicely. Wasn’t bothered by traffic noise and was happy to be helped into the car to go on a short trip.

    Please bear in mind he is more basset than spaniel and as such has a long back and short legs – this can predispose dogs to problems with their spine and back and so should be discouraged from jumping up or down and any “rough terrain” that might cause physical challenges.

    He is looking a bit sad at the moment and missing being with people so it would be great to find a suitable home with experience perhaps of bassets and their needs – he is a very sweet, loving dog who just deserves to be an equally loving home. He doesn’t appear to have had lots of input, socialising, life experiences. So we would recommend some gentle introductions to the world by an experienced, calm and capable owner.

    Being part hound he loves to sniff and follow a trail so anyone with experience of or willing to learn and do some nosework would be great with him – but at the moment this immature and timid young lad needs an experienced, capable, confident home to help him make up for the lack of socialisation he seems to have had – typically puppy who will need help in not jumping up etc and a chance to relax and have company whilst he builds confidence in the world.

    Please only apply if you can meet his needs and there is someone at home all/most of the day at least for the next few months whilst he catches up with his development and his confidence.
