Life from a pound dogs eyes....
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 🐾❤️🐾
Miley and Louisa have come from Greece in hope of a better life. They are both collie crosses aged 2 years. They love each other and miley does depend on Louisa especially when out walking. Louisa will trot around the fields no problem very outgoing and friendly but shy miley needs some coaxing and a gentle voice and she then soon follows her friend. These girls are friendly and spotless in there kennel, they are growing in confidence each day. Although they are not a bonded pair we would like to try to rehome them together and if not successful we feel they would both need another dog to help them feel secure. An adult home with experience of owning a dog is needed and a secure garden/yard with 6ft walls/fencing too. Please fill in the online adoption form if you feel you can meet there criteria they would love a home soon ❤️

Our handsome Joey is looking for a 5 star home 🌟 He was recently involved in an accident and is currently under our vets regarding a leg injury, of course Carla lane will be paying for his leg bills until he’s healed   (Please no negative comments regarding previous owner) Joey  is an ex racing greyhound he needs an adult experienced home  he is a very nervous boy with trust issues he really needs the time to settle and allow him to bond with you, once he knows you he is a loyal friend. Joey is very nervous on his lead, he’s no trouble to walk but is easily startled and is very much a flight risk, he needs to be walked on the two point contact at all times and never let off lead unless a secure area but again only when he knows you well. Joey is dog friendly but would prefer not to live with another dog he likes his humans, toys and treats all to himself. Joey enjoys playing with his cuddly toys and his favourite hobbies are eating sausages and going for walks. Any new owner will need to have transport to bring him back and forth to our vet until his leg is fully healed, at the moment he is in a cast for 6 weeks and doing really well. Please complete the online application if you feel joey is the dog for you. ❤️🐾

Sweet sisters Beyonce and Britney enjoying there walks today. This pair are a dream to walk although it would require two adults to walk them as they can catch you off guard and pull towards small animals or just refuse to walk occasionally but they are getting better each day. Beyonce loves the sound of her own voice especially when she is excited to greet you but she soon settles down! Britney is on extra meals as she’s a lot thinner than her sister but in a home she should gain weight steadily without the stress of kennel environment. These girls love a cuddle and are ok walking near other dogs but they will growl if they get up close and personal! They are spotless in there kennel and will make great pets in a home environment.  Please fill in the online adoption form if you feel you can offer these girls a quiet home with no pets or young children. ❤️

Our gorgeous lad Rex is back with us looking a new forever home. Rex is a large cross breed, he is 7yrs of age and is a lovely boy who loves everybody he meets. Rex can be a bit shy of new people at first but soon comes round!🐾 Rex loves his food, cuddles and running around our compound.
He needs an active, strong owner who will give him plenty of exercise and walkies💗
Rex can live with other dogs but needs a home without small animals. 
We feel Rex would settle in to an adult only home better. 

If you think you have the perfect home waiting for Rex, and you are an active adult only family then please fill out our form below:


We are appealing for a experienced home for Smokey, a 1yr old GSD cross. 

Smokey adores being around dogs therefore we feel he would be better off living with another dog
(Please do not apply for Smokey if you do not have another dog)

Smokey is full of life, love and beans! He is an active boy, lots of energy and is just a great dog to be around. Smokey has been returned to us a few times as he does guard his food and toys with humans, this will need training to help correct this.

Please do not overlook this gorgeous boy, he is such a delight. Smokey is great in the home, he is house trained and not destructive, he also walks well on his head collar lead.

Smokey’s home needs to be adult only(No children 18yrs and younger), active, have another dog and willing to take him to training to help with his guarding issues.

We really don’t like seeing Smokey in kennels, we can only do our best to give him as much attention as possible but it’s no home😢

If you think you could offer Smokey a home and you fit the above criteria then please send your application our way💕


Our little girl Ty is really needing her special home, this poor girl hasn’t had any stability the last year of her life, she just needs an understanding home to call her own. 
Ty is a 10yr old Jack Russell, she needs a quiet home with experience of dogs with behavioural issues. Ty is a small dog with a BIG attitude, she loves you once she knows you and is full of personality.
Ty does have some issues, she can resource guard and does not like to be forced to do things she doesn’t want to do such as being restrained or picked up. A patient owner is a must!

Ty loves her food, toys and even a bath every now and again, this is of course when she trusts you. 
Please share for our beautiful girl, she needs and pet free ADULT only home. 

If you think you meet the criteria above, please fill out an adoption form for our quirky girl.
