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)

Height: Large (Large Collie to Labrador Size) | Breed: Collie X Hound | Colour: Black and White | Sex: Female


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

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’.

I would like to introduce you to our dear little Poppie. She is a lovely, affectionate and boisterous little kitten of 5 to 6 months old who has found herself at Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue through no fault of her own.

She has settled into life at Sunny Harbour easily and although not a huge fan of her fellow residents she doesn’t let it put her off her stride and she will play all day and all night, should the urge take her.

Her favourite toys are her ping pong balls, mice and her purple Wubba and its not uncommon to have just cleaned out her pen and come back 5 minutes later to find she has turned everything upside down and all around!

This little girl loves to climb and explore and goes crazy for some interactive play in the form of a feather tickler or laser pen.

Ideally we are looking for a fun loving cat orientated person(s) who would like to add Poppie to their family. Having always lived indoors our preference is for this to continue and prior thought, imagination and enthusiasm given to meeting her needs in this environment.

We are as always happy to advise and provide ideas.

Due to poppies rather exuberant personality she can charge around quite fast not looking where she is going so for that reason we feel she would be better around older children 8yrs +, preferably used to cats.

Poppie is very much overflowing with the joys of life and she is quite the comic and will certainly make you smile every day.

It would be good for her to have some company through the day so couples doing shift work or people working from home sometimes would be ideal for our little girl.

Poppie has been spayed and will have at least started her vaccinations and be treated for fleas & worms and microchipped on leaving Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue.

If you feel you could offer Poppie the stimulating home she deserves then please do send us a Sunny Harbour's adoption application form via our website. Please note your interest in Poppie.
