Life from a pound dogs eyes....
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 ❤️

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.. 💚
Beautiful Bella enjoying the sun today☀️ She is a stunning Rottie/ sharpei crossbreed. This lady is very friendly but can come across a little shy meeting new people at first, once she knows you she is cuddle monster and great in a home environment. Bella needs an adult with no children or pets. Bella does not like other animals and on a walk can be reactive and strong, during this quiet lockdown period we are working with Bella, doing more lead work hoping to help her find a new home soon. Someone with experience of the breeds would be best as they can be stubborn dogs and willing to take her to a trainer so she can progress further. 

❤️Curro cuddles...

Handsome curro is still patiently waiting for his new home. Seeking an adult home with no pets. He is looking for a strong adult who can carry on with his lead training. A perfect boy in the house but sadly never given the chance. Come and get to know his fun loving personality 💙
Magnus here!! I have had no interest, I’m starting to miss having a family ☹️

I’ll give you a bit more info about me, who knows I could be the dog you never knew you needed(everybody needs a Magnus though) 

So I’m Magnus, I’m nearly 2yrs old and I am a large deerhound cross. I am a bit of hyper boy, I love running around with my favourite teddy’s and chasing after my tennis balls. I’ve been told I’m a bit of handful, I have a lot of energy and I need my new owner to have just as much as I do. 

I have had some issues on the lead, I get really over excited around other dogs and I just don’t know how to act so I now walk on a Kumfi Kalmer and I am also trained to walk on a muzzle. Apparently I would do really well in training classes❣️

I don’t want to share my home with any other pets or children, I want my new owner allllllll to myself please. 

So what do you think, have you all fallen in love with me? If you think you’re up for a bit of a challenge please fill out the form below! 

Magnus then decided to dig a little hole for tigger! He’s proud of himself 🙈😂
Name: Nikita
Breed: Husky
Age: 9-10yrs
Live with Dogs?: No
Live with Cats?: No
Live with Children?: No
Special Requirements? : Does need an owner experienced in dealing with dogs who have behavioural issues. 

Our amazing Nikita, sadly back in kennels after a lovely 2 months away in a foster home. Nikita is very much independent, she loves her own company and her favourite activity in the whole world is to sleep and lounge on the couch. 

Nikita does have some behavioural issues, she is food aggressive and needs to be fed in a separate room. Nikita is not a cuddly lap dog, she will come over to you for a fuss and a play but this will be on her terms.

We can’t stress enough how good Nikita was in her foster home, Nikita is house trained and walks perfectly on the lead. Nikita is good with quiet dogs out on a walk but does not like very playful dogs in her face and will tell them off if they get too much for her.

Nikita is just a older lady, she has her quirks but she is very loyal, she will make you laugh and smile. 

Nikita has spent 3 years of her life in kennels, we really cannot bear the thought of her spending her last here.

Please, if you think you and Nikita could be the perfect match then fill out the form below!
