KAYLA IS NOT AT THE SANCTUARY
Kayla is a Joey's Legacy Boxer Rescue dog and if you are interested in adopting her please contact Joey's Legacy direct. We always try to help each other.

This poor girl is 7 year old Kayla (formerly Taylor) she arrived as an emergency case. Kayla is a small mastiff cross who was described as being extremely unwell, lethargic, vomiting, diarrhea and a swollen stomach, the symptoms suggested a possible pyometra, so we agreed to take her in and she was rushed straight to our vets who confirmed she did in fact have an extremely large pyometra. Kayla was taken straight in for surgery and a pyo of almost 4kg was removed! She is now recovering well although spent the following day at the vets on a drip to increase her fluids, but despite everything she has bounced back and is a transformed dog, she even removed her cannula and decided it was home time. Taylor will be looking for a home once fully recovered and assessed. She is a chilled girl, but very needy, she wasn't phased or interested in the other dogs at the vets. More info to follow
My name is Drake. I am a 12 month old Boxer cross from Spain. I was in a foster home in Spain and they said I am child and dog friendly. I am clean in my kennel. I am still learning English. I am a typical independent man and don't fuss everybody as soon as I meet them, so I was just being overlooked. But I am a young good looking chap and eager to learn, so I hope I will find my new home soon. Mucho amor. Drake x
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
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
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. ❤️
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 💙
Sandy was adopted over 7 months ago but has sadly come back into us. She is a 2 year old large collie crossbreed and was originally a foreign dog but now knows all her English commands. Sandy is overweight at the moment and needs an active owner, she can be strong on the lead but is now walking well at the rescue on a head collar. She seems fine around other dogs but will need to be the only pet in the home. Sandys issues are mainly out on walks she is reactive to traffic, motorbikes and is terrified of going in cars. She will need a patient owner to help sandy overcome her fears.  Sandy is great in the house a very loyal and loving dog. Sandy is so clean in her kennel here, she really is a lovely dog 💗
Sox is a very handsome collie, he is 6 years old. Sox is amazing here at the rescue, very gentle, loving and house trained. He walks nicely on the lead and walks ok near other dogs too. Sox is a big cuddly boy who just wants to please his owner. He did nip at his previous home so will require an adult collie experienced home. Sox has been great with all staff here but can be protective if strangers approach. Sox will make a great companion 🐾
Marley is a 9 year old staffie, this poor fella absolutely hates the kennels and we are desperate to find him a permanent, understanding staffie home. He has spent many months in a foster home we’re he come on leaps and bounds but he now needs a forever home of his own. When Marley first arrives at his new home he can be unsettled, spin around and generally stressed but within a couple of weeks he starts to settle and becomes a happy placid boy with a heart of gold. Marley doesn’t want to live with children or other pets. When out walking  Marley enjoys meeting everyone and is happy walking near other dogs too but he can be frightened of some. He is house trained and can be left a few hours at a time he really  doesn’t like sleeping in a crate but he loves to sleep in your bed and sometimes even under the duvet! If you can’t offer Marley a home then please share his post we desperately need him back in a home before he looses weight and hurts himself in kennels 🐾❤️🐾
