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. 

BENSON (DOBERMAN MALE - APPROX. 1 YEAR)

BENSON - DOBERMAN MALE (APPROX. 1 YEAR)

Benson is a special fella in so many ways.  He has an energetic, loving and playful nature -- full of energy and fun!  Benson has an issue with his back legs as he is extremely wobbly and we are going to have him seen by a specialist vet in NI in the near term.  Further updates will follow.  He has seen a vet, and it is unsure whether his unsteady gate is due to an injury or is congenital.  He is not in pain and is extremely exuberant and loves to chase toys and treats!  He will sit for a treat and adores attention.  It is rare for us to get a Doberman into our shelter and he is proving to be a real gem.  Our wonky legged wonder boy -- the rather gorgeous big, adorable Benson -- not keen to stand still long enough for photos -- lots of energy going on!

REBA & LAUREL (JR TERRIER MIXES FEMALES - APPROX. 2 YEARS)

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 will be spayed prior to re-homing.

To learn more about this pair (Reba & Laurel), give us a ring on 047-70512 or 00353-4770512 (NI).

(ON TRIAL)  HACHI - HUSKY/COLLIE MIX MALE (APPROX. 3 YEARS)

The wonderful, one of a kind, Hachi is in need of a very active home.  He was re-homed about a year ago and, unfortunately, due to change of house and circumstances, he came back into our care recently.  Hachi is gem of a fella -- he is so intelligent, has lots of basic training and will be a marvelous and true companion.  Hachi needs a home that can give him lots of exercise and daily long walks.  He is house-trained and knows basic commands -- has been around other dogs (small and large) and is dog friendly.  He is a cool dude that is very affectionate and engaging -- adores attention and likes to play!  He is an athletic boy, so will need a 6" walled or fenced enclosure to keep him safe and secure.

RUFUS (TERRIER MIX MALE - APPROX. 1-2 YEARS)

RUFUS - TERRIER MIX MALE (APPROX. 1-2 YEARS)

This fella is super bouncy and friendly and wants attention!  Rufus is extremely lively and in need of a home that give him lots of exercise (playtime & daily walks).  He came into our care as a stray.  Rufus does not like cats!  He jumps up for attention, but has done very well with his initial training. 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.
