MIA IS IN FOSTER AND WE HOPE ITS A FAILED FOSTER SITUATION!
LOLA HAS BEEN RESERVED!
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!
Details and enquiry form Asha - Finding Furever Homes
Very friendly girl indeed, she absolutely loves people, cuddles, fuss, attention, having her tummy tickled…anything people related – she loves 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

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 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

MAXIMUS needs an experienced foster home committed to keep him until he can transition from a kennel to a home, however long it takes
Read his story here
Chica is a sweet and loving staffie girl, who absolutely loves people and snuggles. She’s worried around other dogs but that’s probably because she’s scared they’ll jump on her and hurt her bad back – she’s been carrying the pain for a long time so habit there.
She’s absolutely fine with cats. She loves toys, particularly soft toys and teddies.
Chica is the sweetist little girl who loves to be loved and will benefit from a quieter home where she can be the centre of attention – looking for a foster please initially but you MUST be close to Shrewsbury, Shropshire as we have a treatment plan set up.
Her back legs are very weak and lack muscle. The vets have found spondylosis in her spine which makes them think she is older than the 4 years it says on her microchip. Chica will need a good nutritious diet, keep nice and slim and will probably need pain relief for life – the cost of which WE will cover ongoing. She’s currently taking a course of hydrotherapy, which we hope will produce some strengthening of her back legs as well as reducing her back pain and we have other support planned including a physio trip and supplements.
We will provide financial help and advice to Chica’s new family, and we would cover the cost of pain relief. She needs gentle exercise such as walking and swimming, rather than running and bouncing, but she will need exercise.
She just needs a loving home, with caring people and time to rebuild and relax. Can you give her that? We will support you financially in catering for her needs but we need you to be near Shrewsbury, Shropshire so that she has access to all the help we can provide – eg hydrotherapy in Telford, vet in Shrewsbury etc – thanks x
If anyone can spare a few pennies towards Chica’s treatment, it would be appreciated

HUMPHREY has been reserved
A very handsome 8 year old Rottie boy who is very happy and friendly with people although we have not had an opportunity to see him around children so would suggest older children only as he has not lived in a home with children before.
Sadly his previous owner is now elsewhere and Matey was at home being fed by neighbours for a while, then got taken to the pound where he was forgotten about, so he is a little unsure of the big wide world and has had no routine or structure in his life just recently.
He has had a mixed reaction with other dogs. He has run lose with another Rottie and also been around small dogs and has been fine. He gets a bit worried when hes on the lead though when approaching unfamiliar dogs. Nothing to indicate he would be aggressive, but he needs gentle reassurance and guidance. Generally he is very polite and walks well on the lead with the occasional little pull but we would recommend a breed experienced home with an owner who is used to handling a big dog and will understand his worries when there are other dogs around.
He was very interested in the cats although he saw some squirrels and was not bothered by those!
He will play a bit if encouraged, but doesn’t do it a great deal. He would much rather have a cuddle as he loves being handled. He was slightly worried the first time we put a harness on him, but he was fine. He likes being stroked all over, feet picked up etc. He is a bit weaker behind so needs to be handled gently and slowly to make sure he can keep his balance. The vet checked him out and it’s not skeletal, it’s muscular so gentle walking, therapies, supplements etc. would help him no end to build him back up again after his "down time" home alone before joining us.
He has no issues with food, traffic doesn't phase him and he enjoys going on a little drive in the car, although he needs help getting in to make sure his back end is supported properly. He's very calm with people and equally he takes being on his own in his stride too.
All in all, a fabulous dog who needs to have his own sofa before Winter. Our behaviourist suggests Matey's new owner will be able to build up his confidence properly around other dogs….although he has been fine so far, he wasn’t as confident as he makes out!

CHASE AND DORA to be rehomed together
Please meet Dora – she is a lovely 18 month old cross breed girl, about the size of a staffy, and is looking for a new Furever Home.
She is good with other dogs, bonded with Chase in her last home, and is a very friendly girl.
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.
Can you offer them a perfect Furever Home please together? They are in kennels in Shrewsbury and any visitors would need to come and see them here, bringing any resident dogs.
Please fill in the Enquiry Form with as much detail as possible if you wish to be considered Thanks x

Please meet Sid – he is an 11 month old labradoodle x husky according to his vaccination certificate and is quite a tall lad – with his combination of breeds he will need a home where you can take care of his needs in terms of both exercise and mental stimulation and as he is just a young pup, where someone is around most of the time. He is strong on the lead and will need guidance in all areas of general obedience but with input and effort he will make someone a fabulous companion.
He is great with other dogs and has lived with a young child in the past and on his assessment in the cattery he was interested in a playful and curious way, no obvious sign of aggression, but with anything caution is recommended.
Sid is an immature puppy inside quite a big body and is a playful loving pup. He can cope with short periods of time home alone but any longer than an hour and he will get anxious and could be destructive. He is a fabulous young man who has not had the best start in life so we are looking for an experienced and committed home who can take on this young pup and help him find his way – the effort will be worth it in the long run.
Usual criteria applies so please make sure you have read all the criteria on our Rescue Ready page before applying. Many thanks

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.
