Likes and dislikes:

Broxie is nervous boy at first but when he gets to know you he is full of fun, he loves going for walks and playing fetch. Broxie is fully house-trained and happy to be left for a few hours alone at home. He is an energetic lad who likes to be on the move, so an active owner who suit him best.

Type of home needed:

Broxie is looking for an owner who has the time to build up his confidence when meeting new people and dogs, he is a clever boy and learns quickly. He loves his owners but can get overwhelmed in some situations, so needs a very calm home where he won't find himself in situations where he feels threatened. For this reason, he cannot live with children, but he can live with a friendly dog.

Good With Dogs

Likes and dislikes:

Megan is a sweet wee girl who is a bit shy and worried in new situations. Once she knows you she loves her training and learning new things. She loves her walks and exercise.

Type of home needed:

Megan can live with children who are 16 years old or over and needs a secure garden. Someone who has owned collies before would be beneficial to help her settle. A calm, quiet home would suit this wee girl. She needs a home with a confident dog to help her build her confidence and get used to her new home. Quiet walking areas with someone who is willing to work through her training programmes she has been working on would also benefit her and help her settle.

More about me:

Megan needs several meets at the centre to build up a relationship before she goes to her new home.

Kos was found recently as a stray, his owner did not claim him and he has now come to us to help him find his new home. Very little is known about Kos so he will be further assessed before he is placed in any home.

Turns out this fella had very very sore ears when he came into the kennels which made him appear a bit on the grumpy side. These ears have now been treated and his true loving gentle laid back character has come out. He is a really sweet boy with a fantastic you could you resist this one!

Meet gorgeous 1 year old Gus. Gus is currently in a quiet foster home and has settled really well. Gus is still very much a puppy and needs to learn some basic manners and basic obedience cues.
He is an incredibly quick learner but cannot focus in a busy household. He is housetrained but in other ways he is still very much a puppy.

Gus travels ok in the car, is fantastic with children of all ages and other dogs. He would chase cats given a chance though.

Although he is brilliant with children, he becomes very excited and is unable to focus or slow down when they are around.

Gus is also a very energetic young boy who needs mental and physical stimulation in a quiet home. He is good with other dogs.

We require his new owners to continue his training.

Homing requirements

Someone who has time to continue his training
No cats
A garden
An active owner who enjoys long walks
No young children living in the home (visiting children would be fine but Gus gets far too excited with young children)

Due to a change in circumstances, Sally's owner has sadly had to bring her in.


Once Sally knows you, she is a very affectionate girl. However she needs time to gain your trust, as she is an anxious girl who is wary of new people. Sally has lived with two cats that she has been okay with, however she can chase them occasionally. She really has no recall, when it comes to being off the lead so she needs an owner who understands that she will just bolt if given the chance. Sally can also jump high fences, so she must be supervised when out. She has anxiety when left on her own, therefore she needs an owner who is at home the majority if the day and can help overcome her separation issues. Sally is in need of a home without young children. This collie X loves to play ball and enjoys her squeaky toys.

Re-homing Criteria

Sally is not the easiest of dogs. She has had a number of homes in her past and this lack of a stability when she was young has left her with anxieties. This girl really needs a patient understanding owner who knows that it will take time, and consistency to help her nervous nature.

Fergie is a neutered 2 year old Collie Cross

He is a loving boy once he knows you, but is wary of people he doesn’t know. Fergie would be best suited to an experienced adult home, with somebody to give him plenty of exercise. A home with no other pets or young children would suit him well. Fergie wants a home where he can continue his training and have a lot of cuddles

Not Good With Other Pets Not Good With Dogs

Mr Minstrel is looking for a special home.

Minstrel is a lurcher, approximately one and a half years old and is an affectionate and playful boy.

He has had some basic training in the past but has also taken to clicker training with enthusiasm! He loves to interact with people, although he can be a little unsure of men initially, and responds well to praise and encouragement. Minstrel bonds really strongly with people and he does have some separation issues but these could be improved on greatly within a home environment.

We don’t think that Minstrel has had the opportunity to learn about things that he may encounter outside of the home environment and as a result finds this stressful and is not comfortable with other dogs. Minstrel would have to be the only dog in the home and he does not like cats.

Minstrel needs a special home with someone understanding who would take the time to help him gain confidence, to settle and enable him to carry on with his training plan; this would be fully supported by a Canine Behaviourist who currently is working with him. This is what she has to say about him;

‘Minstrel is a lovely boy who needs a calm environment to improve his confidence and to continue with his training. He took to agility and clicker training instantly and is improving greatly on his impulse control. Anyone who considers taking him into their home would see that with patience and understanding he has huge potential’.

Murphy (previously known as “Smurf”) is a lovely 16month old boy who is looking for a new home with an experienced dog owner who has the time and patience to continue with his training. He is currently being fostered in a home along side another dog who he gets on very well with, this is his first experience of living with another animal.

  • Red brindle Greyhound

ZEUS is the most beautiful red brindle boy. He is well named as you can see from the photo. He is very nice and very friendly with everyone, and quite easy to walk on a lead. One of the best travellers in a car (with a little help to get in!). He is castrated and microchipped. This boy is going to be a beautiful and well loved pet.
