My name is Nell. I am a 19 month old tri colour Border Collie. I am a friendly girl, but a typical Collie, very protective, so I need an experienced home. I have nipped in the past so I cannot be homed with children. I am very dog friendly, but don't want to live with a cat. I am house trained and perfect in the home, but I am a bit of a herder so I could really do with a Collie experienced home. Might this be you? If so please come and see me. The Sanctuary is open every day for viewings from 1.00 until 4.30pm
DUE 27th July from Romania
This is Lupi. 
SHE is 2 years old. He is good with dogs and people. She is a medium size. 
If you may be interested in adopting her please come on down! We rehome with children 5 and over and if you live in rented accommodation please bring your landlord permission with you to own a pet. Please also bring any other dogs you may own and your children! We are open every day from 1.00 until 430pm for viewings.
We want NO negative comments on this post. They will be deleted. Rooney's owners have worked with him and loved him very much and have had him for 9 months. They were extremely distressed to bring him back, so I will repeat myself. NO negative comments.
Our big boy Rooney is sadly back In our care, he is a very large and boisterous boy who needs a firm owner willing to continue his training. Rooney can be mouthy when over excited and can jump up. 
Rooney is a very handsome lad who love cuddles and playing with his toys. Rooney is house trained and can be left for a short period, but can be destructive if left too long. He can get out of training cages and open doors including the fridge and freezer!  We are looking for a VERY active family who have experience of large dogs, Rooney can be strong on his lead but walks much better when on a harness! He can be possessive over food and sometimes over toys so adults only or dog savvy teenagers would be fine. He would be best wit someone who is home most of the day.
He is good with other dogs when out walking but will be best homed alone as he can be bossy in the home.
We hope to see him settled into a home very soon!
If you are interested in meeting Rooney please telephone us on 0151 549 0959 or complete our online adoption form: https://carlalaneanimalsinneed.co.uk/adoption-questionnaire/
Curro arrived from Spain last month having had an extremely hard start to life. He is a 3 1/2 year old Labrador cross. If you would like to meet him please ring us to arrange a meeting on 0151 549 0959...
Curro is an adorable boy around the home. He is loving, loyal and so much fun. He has bags of energy and loves to play ball and chase. He likes nothing better than to be stroked and to have a fuss made of him. 
He is really settled in the home and in a beautiful routine. He is clean and extremely happy. 
However, Curro does have issues with other dogs when out walking. He is suffering from anxiety when around them which leads to lead aggression if he gets too close. He is a very strong boy and requires strength to handle him. 
He is also wary of children and needs a home with no children. 
Curro has so much love to give and will be the perfect pet once he overcomes his anxieties. He requires a home with an owner who has the time to work with him to overcome this. PLEASE consider Curro, he really deserves a happy ending.
NOT CURRENTLY AT THE SANCTUARY
This is Sooty. He is still with his owner. He is a friendly boy originally rescued from Egypt at 6 months old. He would like an adult home with no small furries! Owner feels a home with no other dogs would be best for him, although he does currently live with a female Rottweiler. He can jump 6ft fence ignores dogs off lead but reactive to other dogs when on a lead. He is strong on the lead so needs a capable owner. He is a GSD/Saluki/Retriever cross! He is now about 6 years old. If you might be interested in meeting him please telephone us on 0151 549 0959
Scooby is still waiting :-(
Scooby has come back in. He needs an adult only home, with someone home most of the day.
Handsome Scooby is a 7 year old Jack Russell cross, he's larger than a Jack Russell but that just means he has even more love to give! 
Scooby had a sad past and until a few days ago lived his life confined to a yard. He knows what it's like to go hungry and is currently receiving extra meals as well as extra care. Scooby felt very worried when he first arrived with us but he's been busy learning he doesn't have to be afraid. Although sudden movements and new experiences can still frighten him, his personality is gradually coming out and we've found that once he knows he can trust you he loves nothing more than gentle belly rubs! This gorgeous boy needs a loving adult only forever home where he can be the only pet so he knows he's safe for life. Our lovely Scooby loves company and is crying out for a family of his own, it's making us so sad to see him in his kennel when he loves his human friends - could you be the one to make his dreams of companionship finally come true?
How much is that doggie in the window...! 

Of course our gorgeous Oscar is priceless! The cost is simply love, patience and commitment - but you will be repaid many times over.

Oscar is a typical wiggly-bum staffie who's been waiting way too long for his chance at happiness. This boy misses his home comforts and is just crying out for some company and attention, it really does break our hearts to know he waits alone day after day. Oscar needs an experienced adult owner with a pet and child free home, someone who will give this lovely boy the security and love he craves and show him he never has to worry again. Please contact us if you think you could be Oscar's perfect match, we know his forever home is out there somewhere!
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
Archie is a 7 year old Collie/American Bulldog cross who was homed a few years ago but sadly needs to come back to the sanctuary to find his happy ever after. He is a very handsome boy who is extremely affectionate and playful, once he has learned to trust his handler. He can be suspicious of strangers so any new owner will need a couple of visits to help Archie to build trust - once he knows and loves you, you will have the most loyal boy you could ever wish to meet!

Archie currently lives with another smaller dog. He is very strong on his lead and will need an experienced handler and a quiet adult-only home. He is spotlessly clean and very settled, both in a home and when in our boarding kennels, and he loves his toys and treats!

Please contact us if you think you could be the one to give this lovely boy his forever home.
Lots of lovely dogs available, please call to arrange a viewing as not all dogs are on site. 

Cici is a 5 year old Romanian crossbreed, friendly, placid, gentle natured and house trained what more can you want? She is dog friendly but prefers her own space. She would love a new home soon 💜

Duke a stunning blue eyed boy, only 3 years old. Sadly over looked due to being vocal when exited and meeting new people. He is human and dog friendly he doesn’t want to live  with cats. He needs an active owner with children 12 years plus. 💚

Laddie a 5 year old jack Russell, sadly not had much training  in the past so needs an owner willing to let him settle and then work on his issues. He is a quirky boy who will try to push his luck. He needs an experienced one on one owner. He doesn’t want to live with other animals. He is friendly with people  and is clean in his kennel. 💙

Bailey a 2-3 year old staffie cross, walks great on his lead and enjoys meeting other dogs, he doesn’t want to live with a dog as he gets jealous. He loves humans but can come across shy when first meeting strangers. Poor bailey first came to us when he was 9 months old and due to having separation anxiety he has come back in. He needs someone home in the day to shower him with love 💚

Bailee is coming to us tomorrow (wed) she is currently in the pound we’re she was due for destruction, she was previously from Romania but has ended in the pound sadly. She is a friendly small to medium sized crossbreed. We will have more info once assessed 💛
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. ❤️
Poor Rooney is not having much luck finding his forever home. It’s sad to see dogs like Rooney over looked due to size and colour. He has a heart of gold loves all people and is friendly with dogs, he just doesn’t want to share his home with one. Rooney is house trained and can be left for very short amounts of time but will stress if left alone so someone home all day to give him the love and attention he deserves would be amazing! Rooney is well trained knows his commands and is nice to walk on the lead too, just a bit giddy at first. Rooney needs your help finding a home, if your not suitable for his needs then please share his posts. ❤️
Laddie has been returned so is again looking for a new home. Small dog, big attitude! If you've owned a Jack Russell before and fancy a challenge, come on down.
My name is Laddie I am 5 years old, people think I look older, I think it’s because I’m carrying a few extra pounds! My owner was elderly and sadly died so I am worried and upset. The staff at the rescue are still getting to know me and my BIG personality they think I've been allowed to do whatever I like in my previous home due to my owners ill health. I’m starting to get into a routine at the rescue now, I am spotless in my kennel but in a home I am known to have accidents and will chew. I am quirky I will guard things, I hate paper..newspapers, magazines there all the same to me I will grab them! Today I picked up a pen and ran off and when my buddy told me to give it up I showed her my scary teeth.. my buddy on the other hand wasn’t very scared and I did give it up in the end.. I like a challenge, it’s all a big game to me. I don't like other dogs and the staff say I need an adult experienced home who have owned a terror I mean terrier like me! I am friendly meeting new people and I enjoy a fuss but I am not a lap dog I like my own company too. I am looking for an owner who can give me the guidance I need to be a good boy because at the moment I can be a bit of a nipper 💙
Lots of beautiful bullbreeds for adoption, it’s so sad to see lots of comments on the puppy’s and the cute small breeds but these adorabull faces are still waiting.. 

Rooney is a 2-3 year old staffie crossbreed, very friendly and sociable, loves to meet other dogs and enjoys company of all humans. He is overlooked as he needs someone home all day, or a bedroom of his own that he can stay in when you go out as he may become destructive if left alone, he just loves his humans so much he doesn’t like it when they leave him 💔 Rooney needs a pet free adult home ❤️

Kenny is a 1 year old staffie who is just full of fun and love. He loves nothing more than long walks, playing with his toys and enjoys to meet other other dogs. Kenny would love a new home soon, he is a youngster who needs someone home in the day to keep him occupied. Kenny walks gently on his harness. ❤️

Buddy is a hunk of love! He is an adorable American bulldog 2-3 years old. He walks perfectly on the lead and enjoys playing fetch with his toys, buddy seems interested in other dogs and will be fully dog tested  later on today, he doesn’t want to live with a cat. He is so well behaved in his kennel and doesn’t make a mess at all. He is a real favourite at the rescue. ❤️

Molly is the most amazing girl, so friendly and sweet. She was saved from the pound she is only 12 months old. Molly seems dog friendly but can be a little nervous of some dogs at first. Molly walks lovely on the lead and is a real sweetheart 💜
So many cuddly crossbreeds in our care too, all
Different shapes and sizes. 

Curro is a 4 year old Labrador crossbreed, originally from Spain, he is super friendly with all
People but does require some training on the lead around other dogs but when corrected he is as good as gold. He would suit someone with dog experience. Curro just wants an adult home with plenty of love and guidance. 🐾❤️🐾

Zorro is a 5 year old crossbreed, he loves everyone he meets and is even great with the vet. He is getting dog tested later today and he doesn’t want to live with a cat. Zorro could live with older children. He is so quiet in his kennel and just curls up in his bed he is a lovely boy. 

Lupi and her two friends lady and bunny, are all Black and Tan crossbreed, they came over from
Romania. Lupi is very outgoing and playful she could possibly with another dog, bunny likes to hold your leg for a cuddle a real sweetie, she would prefer to live without another dog but is ok with dogs on a walk. Lady is a scaredy cat at the moment she even seems cat friendly, she will thrive in a one to one home we’re she can gain her confidence, she wouldn’t suit a home with children to her being so nervous. 

We cannot believe Miki is still with us, he is a large Black and Tan crossbreed full of fun and love. He is great in his kennel and just loves to say hello every morning. His favourite hobby is zooming around the compound and having belly rubs. He could live with dog savvy children.
