Life from a pound dogs eyes....
My name is Harry, although really I look like more of a 'Scruffy'. The photo lady said she had never seen a dog that looked like me before. I look a bit like a Norfolk/Norwich terrier but double the size! I am a medium sized dog (as you can see on my new photos). I have a comical and adorable face! No one has any idea what breed I am. I was just left tied up outside Asda and no one claimed me. It's a tough life being a dog sometimes. I can be boisterous and dominant and would benefit from an active home with owners who are experienced with dogs like me, who would like a bit of training. I have an issue with vets! Any veterinary treatment I need is to be undertaken at The Sanctuary. I love other dogs but I can be possessive over toys and sticks etc so I need an adult only home as I can be dominant at first but once I know you I am really lovely, so I would like a firm but kind owner. Having said this, I was an angel for the photo lady and took my treats gently and sat down for her. I just need to know who is boss and then I think I will make an adorable companion for someone. The photo lady said I am very handsome and have lovely eyes. I love playing and cuddles. I am about 2 years old. Please come and see me. Love Harry xx
Look at that adorable face! Handsome curro originally came from Spain. He is a friendly gentle boy in our care, always well behaved and clean in his kennel. Curro will require some further lead training in his new home. Curro is looking for an adult home with no other pets. He is great in a home, house trained and not destructive. ❤️
Hello everyone I am gorgeous Nikita and I am reading the News. 😇
Firstly, I have been told to apologise to you all because we haven’t posted news for a week! 🤭There is so much of it but everyone has been so busy with all the Dogs and cats coming in; as well as the poor sick  ones like old Max 🤕and puppies and kittens to look after. 
It’s been a very hard week and our Laura, the kennel manager, is away on holiday 😎she so deserves one  but we all really miss her, especially Lexie and Humphrey 🐶they are both having a sulk. ☹️Lucky that our old friend Lauren is giving up time to walk Lexie, or she would be in a right strop🙈😬 It’s good when people help out, it means the staff can spend more time with us so we don’t get lonely. 
One thing that’s never forgotten is our lovely good night Treat from Cathy, she comes in at 9 every night to check all 40 of us and make sure we are warm and cozy before handing out the Sausages 🌭that’s the best part of the day😋
Well I suppose I better tell you the news. Lots of dogs got a home, 🤗 lovely saffron, Angie, Beans, Robbie, Kellie the staffie, chutney, Sadie, Sandy and dotty !!!they are so lucky. 🍀
 I am sad that I haven’t,  😢because I was really good in my home and well behaved but I had a few accidents when my lovely owner went back to work so now am waiting for someone to choose me. 
I am older and need a comfy home, please ask to meet me, you won’t be disappointed. 

Kate the Cattery 😺manager has been run off her feet caring for over 50 cats and kittens but she is chuffed that some have found homes this week.  Big grumpy Alfie 😾 Found a home 🏡 and shy brothers Tiggy and Taffy also Lovely Pri who had been waiting the longest was chosen and gentle older Jags, a lovely girl,  is also homed How good is all that! 👏🏻Worth waiting for I hope🤗 Kate has asked me to mention Chilli. She is gorgeous a lovely grey colour and she has lived with a dog 🐕 but she doesn’t care for the attention of children,  so needs an adult home where she can be an indoor cat but she walks on  a harness and lead😃!! How cute is that! She really misses being in a home . So have a look at her pictures and come and make her day and mine ! 

Don’t forget to ask for me Nikita, oh and little white staffie Princess she is so sad 😞 she cries for attention and she is a nice housetrained girl,  she said to say she can live with a family but not a dog or cat😬. Well that’s it folks,phew! Thanks for being patient we hope to have newsreaders every-night from now on, they are in training 🙈
Love Nikita and Sanctuary pals X
Marley has been in an out of homes since he came to us at 5 months old. Please do not apply to adopt him because he is cute. Marley is now 10 months old. Marley is friendly with all new people he meets but in a home he is protective and can resource guard, we’ve tried a few homes now with different set ups and it seems Marley does not like men in the house and he is only loyal to one person. Marley has nipped in his homes. We are hoping to find a woman living on her own or possibly with a spayed female dog. Marley has bags of potential but we  will not consider someone who has no experience with dominant dogs. Marley is a firm favourite with the staff and volunteers at the Rescue 💚
Hi everyone it’s me big Charlie! I’m a 2 year old large crossbreed. I’m a friendly boy full of fun and love, I have a cheeky personality, so come on, come and get to know me. I was returned because I was a silly boy I love to play with anything soft so scatter cushions, teddy’s things like that I love to grab them and I don’t like to let them go, so I need some work to help train me out of that. I love other dogs and would suit a female friend who can cope with a big playful boy like me! Hoping someone with experience of large dogs can come and adopt me ❤️
Hi everyone, I’m not sure if you have met me yet but I am the sanctuary’s very own Princess Belle 👑💞

I’ll tell you a little bit about me before I go. I am a friendly girl, I walk well on the lead and I am great with other dog’s. 💓

I am very playful and can be boisterous at times. I am eager to learn and motivated for both food and toys ❤️

I do need someone who can commit to training me in the house, I am a clean girl but do need plenty of toys to occupy me and keep me busy as I get bored easily. 

Due to my size I am looking for a family with experience of large breeds, with no young children but could potentially live with another dog. No small furries though please 🤭

I have got to say I am well up there with the biggest divas on the planet 🤣💞 Someone with lots of time, patience and dedication will suit me... I will give you the biggest thank you of all, a big sloppy kiss 💋 

I am sure someone out there must have a Belle shaped hole in their heart... could it be you?

Lots of love, Belle 💞💓
My name is Champ, I am a 4-5 year old Rottweiler cross. I am a friendly, loving boy in search of a Rottweiler experienced home. I love my toys and treats. I can be a little strong on the lead initially but soon settle. I don’t react to dogs on a walk but I haven’t yet been introduced to any here at the sanctuary. I need a pet and child free home preferably with Rottweiler experience 🐶🥰
Hi everyone it’s me missy, 👋🏻 I should really be called Polly pocket because I’m so small and cute. I’m a 9 year old quirky staffie. I would suit someone with bullbreed experience because I do that silly staffie growl and can be talkative, I don’t mean any harm I’m just full of personality 💞 I love my friend Julie she comes to see me everyday and I help her with her jobs! Im not well socialised with other dogs so I need a home with no other animals and no children please. I’m perfect in a home, spotless and no problem at all. Come on surely someone out there must have a suitable home for me 💋

Tubby and Peppa are two beautiful girls, sadly there  owner is no longer able to care for them so they have come to us for rehoming. Tubby is 7 years old and peppa is 6. If they could be rehomed  together then that would be amazing but sadly in this day and age two mature staffie types are unlikely to get adopted quickly as a pair so if they don’t get much interest we would consider homing them to loving separate homes so they don’t become stressed in a kennel environment waiting months on end for a home. They both have fun loving personality’s and are yet to be assessed around other animals. 

Anyone interested in adopting can fill in an online adoption application on our website and we can invite down once safe to do so.
Stella is a 7 year old staffie, come into us through no fault of her own. She would love a new home waiting for her when all this is over! She would suit an adult only, pet free home ❤️
Did someone say chicken! 😋😋😋 Heather is super glad lots of donations of sausages and chicken have come in 🍗 ❤️

Heather will be up for re homing when safe to re open. She is approximately 2 years old and is a staffie. This pretty girl is a forever friend once she gets to know you, she is more nervous of men but can be won round with sausages.  Heather does not like other dogs/ cats and will  need a sensible adult pet free home. she loves her toys and treats and is clean in her kennel. she would love a new home soon.
Big girl Elexii is a 3-4 year old collie cross. She is a lovely gentle girl who would like a home without children. She could possibly live with another dog if they were calm enough as she doesn’t like being constantly pestered. She knows her basic commands and has been getting to know her friend Sally, they are playing together each day.

Sally a young 1-2 year old collie cross. She is a little shy when she first meets you but quickly comes out of her shell, she has a fun loving personality and loves to play with other dogs and burn off some energy. Sally is known to be cat friendly but may chase if given the chance so slow intro would be needed. When over excited Sally can nip and be silly so a home with teenagers would be more ideal willing to train her. Sally will make a great addition! x
My name is Nell im a pretty collie only 20 months old. I have had a few homes in the past and I do need an adult experienced collie owner as I can be protective and i have bitten in my previous homes. I would suit a working home were I can spend most of my time outdoors. I love long walks and enjoy to meet and play  with other dogs, I just love life and I am super friendly what more can you wish for? Please consider me I’m waiting very patiently. Love Nell 🐾❤️🐾
Handsome buddy is still waiting for his home, he is a 1 year old mastiff crossbreed. Buddy needs an adult home willing to help him learn some basic manners, he can get over excited and mouth especially around his lead. he is easily distracted by food or toys which will help with his on going training. Buddy is not a bad dog he Just needs an owner with understanding of these big bull breeds. Buddy seems fine with other dogs  just very very silly and boisterous. The staff spend lots of time working with dogs like buddy who spend longer In Kennels, they are all great with us even in this stressful kennel environment. Buddy would suit an experienced home with plenty of time to train him, with no more than 2 adults as he does bond more with one person.. 💚
