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
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. ❤️
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 🐾
Big Tyson is still looking for his special home. He is 19 months old and full of fun. 
He’s a strong lad but walks well with our staff. He is good with other dogs. He’s getting very stressed in Kennels. 
If you like the big dogs please come and visit him.
Magnus is a lovely boy originally adopted from CLAIN as a puppy. He is now 1 year old lurcher possibly wolfhound cross judging by his size! He is a sweet boy friendly but a little shy at first he quickly comes out of his shell and is a silly pup at heart. He is great in a home and would suit a home with older children. Magnus can be worried getting in and out the car so will need some training for this. We are ideally looking for someone with experience of this breed. We are open 1.00-4.30
For viewings ❤️
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

She is ecstatic 😃jumping about with joy, she got chosen today by a lovely couple who saw her in the news🤗 She is going home on Saturday 🏡 and she said I should read the news so some lovely person will choose me!🙏
Bruno also got a home but no cats or kittens 😾where are all the lovely cat 🐈 lovers? 
We have dozens of gorgeous cats and kittens waiting for a home of their own. 
I Promised to mention Martine the X  German Shepard , she has come from an awful place in Spain,  a lovely lady saw her suffering and rescued her and sent her to us . 
Also Lipsey my staffie friend she is missing her family life and asked to be mentioned😊if you are looking for a loyal fun loving family dog.

Breswster is a handsome chap he is  only 1 year old. He is a mastiff crossbreed. Brewster came in through no fault of his own, but since spending a while in kennels he is becoming stressed and can be difficult on his walk, in time with training this will improve and staff are working with his lead manners now. Brewster seems ok around other dogs just boisterous so could possibly live with a spayed female. come and get to know brewster he is a funny friendly  boy.
my name is Nell im a pretty collie only 20 months old. I have had a few homes now  but I do need an adult experienced collie owner as I can be protective and i have bitten in my previous homes. I’m just so loyal to my owner. 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 🐾❤️🐾
Charlie is a handsome large crossbreed about 2 years old. This friendly boy just loves all people but sometimes doesn't realise his own size and strength! He would try and sit on your knee if he could. Charlie is known to be dog friendly and walks nicely on his lead when wearing a head collar. charlie needs an adult home willing to give him time to settle in slowly,he is sad in kennels. x
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 💗
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 but 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, we really hope he finds his adult forever home before Christmas 💚
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 💚
How can cute little Rosie still be waiting for her new home? She is 12 months old. Rosie needs an adult home with no other pets. This little lady loves to go for long walks but can be a yapper around other dogs so will require some further training. Rosie needs a confident handler willing to let her settle down in her new home slowly. There must be a Rosie shaped hole in someone’s heart 💚
Hi it’s me Oscar the 4-5 year old crossbreed, you may recognise me from earlier in the year, I’m now back at Carla lane looking for my new forever home. I am an active little boy I enjoy having my walks and enjoy getting lots of attention, I don’t mind meeting new dogs on my walks too. I can be wary of new people at first but once I know you I’m a real snuggle buddy, I need a home with no children or visiting children. I do not like the car and I will bark at traffic and passerby’s  this is why I have been returned, little dogs like me think we can take on the world to protect our owners I thought I was being a good boy. I am house trained and spotless In my kennel too. If you have an adult home ideally with no pets please ask about me! ❤️
