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.
This is Bruce he is 3-5 years old. 
We are helping to promote him for Liverpool council. He is not at our rescue and viewings will be by appointment only so please contact the rescue or complete an application on our website. 
He has a friendly temperament and loves going for walks. 
We will be doing an assessment of him shortly and update his profile.
My name is Bailey. I am a 2-3 year old Staffie cross, I have sadly had a few homes since originally coming to the Sanctuary at 9 months old! I have made lots of progress each time In my homes but sadly I became more dominant in the home and became reactive to the dog in the house so we think a home on my own would be best. I would suit a child and pet free home. I'm a skittish boy at times  looking for reassurance from my owner, I have lots of potential and love to give and enjoy showing off my tricks. I love to play ball and enjoy my walks. I can be stressed being left alone so a home with someone in for the day would be ideal. I am spotless in my kennel and very gentle with the staff. I hope I don’t have to wait long in kennels.
Love Bailey xxx
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 is currently not at the Sanctuary. He is currently at a specialist rehabilitation centre whilst we have our kennels refurbished.
Jack is still waiitng :-(
Jack is currently not at the Sanctuary. He is currently at a specialist rehabilitation centre whilst we have our kennels refurbished.
Please note. Scooby is currently not at the Sanctuary. He is currently at a specialist rehabilitation centre whilst we have our kennels refurbished.
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.
Pickles is coming back into us soon. She is an 18 Month old french bulldog. Unfortunately pickles has taken a disliking to the main carer and has snapped. She is a timid little dog and was hand shy in the kennels and would flinch at first but never shown aggression, also great with the vet too! She is super friendly with everyone at the rescue and seems to bond more with one person, pickles doesn’t want to live with children because she can be skittish. She walks perfectly on the lead but doesn’t like other dogs and will bark on walks. She has a funny character very playful and also enjoys cuddles on the sofa! She wouldn’t suit being left alone long hours so someone home for most of the day  would be ideal. Please don’t apply because  she is cute, she needs a dedicated owner willing to give her the time and training she needs especially around new people and dogs. SHE IS NOT AT THE RESCUE. YOU MUST FILL AN ONLINE APPLICATION ON ON OUR WEBSITE TO APPLY FOR HER. 💜
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 💛
Some of you may remember little Harley the bichon, sadly it didn’t work out in his home and he is back up for adoption. He is a 4 year old bichon frise, he is an active boy who enjoys going for long walks, he has been great at the rescue with the staff and loves nothing more than playing fetch! He loves his ball. Unfortunately Harley has severe separation anxiety and hates to be left alone at all so will need a home we’re he can’t be left alone, in time he may get over this issue with some training and reassurance. he is only young. Harley also became protective of his owner and when visitors came to the home he would bark and did nip, this is totally out of character for him. He is a gorgeous boy but does need that little bit of training in a home. We are looking for an adult pet free home for Harley with someone in all day to keep him occupied, we hope he gets the chance and training he needs 💚
