Likes and dislikes: Timmy is a sensitive soul who has really come on leaps and bounds during his time at the Rehoming Centre. He is nervous around strangers but enjoys his daily routine of meeting new people to develop his confidence and he loves clicker training. A run in the field with his doggie friends is always welcomed, followed by an afternoon doze with his kennel mate.

Type of home needed: Timmy seeks an adult home with experience of training and rehabilitation. Someone who can dedicate time to his on-going socialisation and development. In the right home he will continue to flourish and achieve his true potential.

Cleo came over from Ireland and very little was know about her. She is a high energy dog and is looking for a new owner with just as much get up and go. The down side to this energy is that when she becomes excited she starts to mouth. This is a fixable problem as she has just never been corrected for this behaviour. Because of this we feel she would be better suited to someone where there are no young children around.

Our volunteer took Cleo for a trip to the beach, she loved playing in the sea and chasing and retrieving a plastic bottle from the water. She gave mixed signals when she met other dogs, and dog socialising will need to be worked on in her new home. Cleo is a really loving girl with people and just wants affection. She has a great nose and would love to do some tracking, hill walking or even agility where she can use up her energy.

When our volunteer took Cleo out she loved the car, very settled and quiet. She was also fine in the busy town and walked well on the lead.

Have you got the same amount of energy that Cleo has to be her new owner? You will have a great companion if you do.

Meet the handsome long haired lad Billy.

Originally a stray we estimate Billy to be around 3 yrs old and a stunning handsome lad he is.

However don’t let the good looks fool you; he has a wicked sense of humour and his whole mission in life is to have fun. He will need to go into a home where someone will be firm but kind and show him the boundaries.

Billy could be homed with older, sensible dog-friendly children.

It would also be best were he an only dog, so he can get the time and training he deserves. He is neutered vaccs chipped and would really love to be in a home before Santa comes.

Billy is a large dog.

  • German Shepherd Cross
  • Age: 5-6

Otto has been with us in kennels for some time with no sign of a home pending. We have been trying to find him a home for him after his elderly owner could not look after him any more.

Otto is a 7 year old German Shepherd/Malamute Cross, castrated with up to date vaccinations.

Otto is a nice dog who loves to play and wants individual attention. He would be a great asset for someone willing to give him a home. His reaction to other dogs is mixed as he is a bit temperamental; therefore, Otto’s ideal home would be where he is the sole animal.

He is walked regularly by one of our volunteers and walks well on a lead. The kennel staff all love him and he walks past most dogs without a fuss, despite the noise and reaction of others.

Otto requires an adult only home as he has no children experience. He is not good with cats. New owners would have to be experienced dog owners.

Otto has an independent nature, but loves going for a walk.

A home visit from a volunteer from Second Chances, GSR must be completed prior to meeting Otto.

If you think you can help, either to adopt or are prepared to foster Otto, please contact Paul from Second Chances German Shepherd Rescue on:-

Not Good With Other Pets Not Good With Dogs

Pootle is a youngster with attitude and personality abound….

She may be small at just 16 weeks old but trust us when we say she knows how to ‘work it’.

Pootle will make a fabulous fun loving, energetic, playful, cuddly companion for someone with the time to spend with her.

Ideally a situation where there is someone home part of the day to keep her quick thinking, intelligent mind working and give her company for a good workout.

The photo shown here is during her recent visit to our local Pets at Home store where we do meet and greet days. Pootle after an initial settling in period decided she owned the store and greeted all her fans wonderfully.

Pootle is not suitable to live with any other animals however and will need to be an only cat.

We have deliberated over this issue for some time and despite several attempts to ‘re socialise her it has proved futile and Pootle continues to be outwardly aggressive to other animals.

She is perfect and cheeky with people it’s just unfortunate that she can’t work out how to socialise properly .

We also feel because of this Pootle needs to either be adopted to an area where there aren’t many other cats or possibly indoor only.

Aside from this slight issue, Pootle makes a wonderful, highly energetic but loving companion..

We wouldn’t recommend Pootle to a family with young children due to her energetic personality.

If you feel she may be of interest then please do get in touch via Sunny Harbour's Adoption Application Form quoting your interest in Pootle.

Flora is aprox 1 yr to 18 months, a gorgeous lurcher with the most amazing expressive ears! She has been spayed and microchipped sinced coming to KWK9 and is up to date with her vaccinations etc. Flora would do best in a quieter home without too much comings and goings initially so that she has time to bond with her new owner and become secure before having to face the big world that is out there! She can be a bit timid of men in particuliar initially but with patience and gentle handling we are sure she will overcome this. She is very loyal to whoever is caring for her and probably will always be a dog who just lets a few close people in rather than wearing her heart on her sleeve and loving everyone! She will make a devoted companion and has lots of love to give. If you can offer her a forever home please complete an KWK9 application form.
