AMBER (COLLIE FEMALE - APPROX. 3 YEARS)

AMBER - COLLIE FEMALE (APPROX. 3 YEARS)

Amber is an affectionate and loving girl and is in need of a special home that understand some of the special Collie traits.  Amber was re-homed in Nov. 2019 and recently returned due to her exhibiting fear aggression towards other dogs and some people.  She was absolutely fine and a perfect pet when inside with her adopters.  She became stressed when around other dogs when out for walks.  She would need a home that can prevent her from being in situations that cause her to be anxious and able to help her overcome this behaviour.

SUE (SPRINGER SPANIEL/LABRADOR MIX FEMALE - 6 1/2 YEARS)

SUE - SPRINGER SPANIEL/LABRADOR MIX FEMALE (6 1/2 YEARS)

Sue is a new arrival into our care, she is really friendly, loves attention and belly rubs.  She is not fond of other dogs so will need to be the only pet in her new home.  Sue is overweight so will need lots of exercise & playtime to get her slimmed down to her ideal weight.  Sue is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go to her new home.  Since her arrival, she has yet to attempt to dig her way out!  Please read below further details about her:

Sue's previous owner has had her since she was a pup and also has her brother, who never attempts to get out.  A secure area was provided, 2 types of Pet Safe fences were purchased, but have proven unsuccessful in his attempts to keep her safe.  She would dig under his fencing, he would secure it again, but she would continue to find a way to tunnel under.  Alan lives near a very busy road and he was so concerned about her safety, thus he was compelled to contact us.   Sue needs to be a house-living pet and will need lots of exercise -- a long daily walk or two!  A large 5' walled garden/area would perfect.  She was provided with long walks and does come back eventually on recall.  Below is Alan's write-up about Sue. 

"Sue is 6 ½ years old and is a Springer/Labrador. She is very lively and is an escape artist! Any new home will need a secure area where she can be kept, like a robust fence or even a wall as she likes to try to get out. She can jump quite high so any fence or wall will need to be at least 5 foot in height. She has loads of energy and loves to chase leaves during a windy day! She is microchipped and has had her vaccinations. She is house trained but on occasion still jumps up on things. She likes to bark too and can be aggressive towards other dogs who are invading her patch! She loves to be rubbed and gives plenty of licks.

AGNES - COLLIE MIX FEMALE (APPROX. 1 1/2 YEARS)

AGNES HAS A SPECIAL STORY -- SHE WAS RE-HOMED TO A GREAT HOME AS A JUVENILE PUP.  THEY TOOK HER TO PUPPY CLASSES WHICH SHE EXCELLED IN HER INTERACTION WITH THE OTHER PUPS.  AGNES DEVELOPED FEAR AGGRESSION IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS AND HER OWNERS HAD 2 BEHAVIOURISTS ACCESS HER.  THEY DID ALL THEY COULD, BUT HER ANXIETY AND INSTANCES OF RUNNING IN A HERDING MANNER AND NIPPING/BITING AT ANKLES/CALVES HAS CAUSED HER TO BE RETURNED TO US.

GRACIE (FOXHOUND FEMALE - APPROX. 6-7 YEARS)

GRACIE - FOXHOUND FEMALE (APPROX. 6-7 YEARS)

This is one special girl to us!  She came into our care as a stray in a very bad state -- so thin with long existing sores on her rear and legs.  She was microchipped and registered to the IKC via a Hunt Club that had disbanded 2 years ago and there were no further details as to where she was sent or sold to.  She was not reclaimed and has been enjoying her new life of comfort and care.  We have watched her transformed from a low in spirit dog, to a happy and playful girl!  She had been sharing her kennel with a young Pug mix female (Snuff) and they snuggle up together & were best friends.  Gracie is one of those special dogs that we are so thrilled to witness such a broken down dog changed to a happy soul -- gaining weight and so enjoying our attention.  Being at the shelter is such a blessing for her -- she is a true joy!  She is driven by food -- so it has been so easy for us to train to her come and follow us!  She is great with other dogs and is in need of special home that can provide a large enclosure for her to run about and play & then welcome her to relax on a comfy bed near the sofa and fire!  Her spirit and personality will win you over when you meet her.

(ON TRIAL)  REBA (Larger) & LAUREL (Smaller) - JR TERRIER MIXES (APPROX. 2 YEARS) - NEED TO BE RE-HOMED TOGETHER

These 2 very sweet and affectionate females came into our care as strays.  They rely on each other and get distressed when apart.  These sisters walk nicely together and snuggle up in their bed and would be lost without each other.  While it is not easy to re-home 2 dogs together, we feel it is vital to keep them together.  These girls do not like cats and are fearful of other dogs, so will need a home where they can be part of a family who can provide lots of attention of snuggles between them!  They have been vaccinated and are spayed.

He has lots of love to give and wants a home that will appreciate his personality and help him learn further canine manners.  He is neutered, chipped & vaccinated.  Rufus has a strong personality so will need an experienced adopter that can further his training and teach him how to behave around other dogs.

ROCKY (COLLIE MALE - APPROX. 1 - 1 1/2 YEARS)

ROCKY - COLLIE MALE (APPROX. 1 - 1 1/2 YEARS)

Handsome Rocky came into our care as a stray -- he was extremely timid upon arrival (as is apparent from these photos).  Rocky is coming along nicely and is getting used to attention and his initial fear of people.  Rocky loves his walks and has transformed from the dog who came into the shelter in April.  He loves playtime and running around with his toys and enjoys being brushed and bathed. He has learned to walk well on the lead and is a smart and responsive fella.  His new adopter may need to come to the shelter a few times to meet and walk him, but when you gain his trust he will be your best buddy and devoted companion.
