SAM & ALFIE
SAM & ALFIE - LABRADOR MIX JUVENILE PUPS
These 2 brothers are approx. 5 1/2 - 6 months old and are almost identical. Sam is shown in the top 2 photos and is a bit shy when away from his brother. They both have great temperaments -- friendly when in the kennel together and will jump up to say "hello" and so enjoy attention. Sam and Alfie had never been on the lead before, so will need all their basic training. They require a home where someone is home most of the day to provide the company, training and interaction a juvenile requires. Sam & Alfie could live with older children (too jumpy and lively for the young ones). If you are looking for a young dog to welcome into your home and provide the training and care required, please come and meet these wonderful boys!
KIT & KIMI
KIT & KIMI - LABRADOR MIX PUPS (TOP 2 PHOTOS ARE KIT AND BOTTOM PHOTO IS KIMI)
These 2 sweeties are mostly Labrador and are approx. 9 weeks old. Kit and Kimi are almost identical, except one is a bit bigger than the other. They will need a home where someone is home most of the day to provide them with the attention, training, and care a young pup requires. They have received their 1st vaccination and have been treated twice for worms. Kit and Kimi are at the fun and super playful phase, jumping up, exploring and biting anything within reach. Adopting a pup is a big responsibility and any adopter must be prepared and willing for all that is required during the puppy and adolescent phase (chewing, house-training, lead training, etc.) All adopters must have a safe/secure garden/yard and the pup has to be a house-living pet (even as an adult). These pups will be medium/large when fully grown, so please take that into account.
MARTIN (Marti) - GREYHOUND
Handsome is neutered, microchipped and has a PET PASSPORT as well! Marti was born on 1 February 2013 and is a retired racer (due to a broken toe). He is super friendly, loves human company and is good around other dogs and has never shown any aggression around cats! He loves food and treats and is very inquisitive and likes to see what is going on around him. Marti is a gentle dog and will make a great indoor pet/companion. With his striking good looks and great personality, we hope he will be re-homed quickly to someone who knows and appreciates how wonderful Greyhounds are as pets!!

Skye needs daily walks -- just like any other Husky or dog. She isn't spayed and hasn't had any pups. She is house trained but needs all other basic training. She has a good nature, loves being outside. I care a lot about her and will only allow her to a good home, experience with the breed is necessary.
PAGE - LABRADOR MIX
Meet Page -- a mostly Labrador female approx. 1 year old. Page has all the lovely traits of a Lab (friendly, energetic and full of personality). She is smaller than a Lab, but is still medium sized. Page needs all her basic training, but I am sure with patience and treats on hand, she will be a most eager to please pupil. With a bit of time and effort to teach Page her canine manners -- she will be a rewarding and well mannered canine friend for life! She could live in a home with older teenage children who could assist with her training. We will start her basic training once she is out of isolation and provide updates on her progress. Page does know the sit command -- but it seems like she has never been on a lead before.
MATILDA (COURTNEY) - TERRIER/COLLIE MIX

She is an energetic young girl with that requires a new home that can provide her with further basic training and stimulation to keep her interested. She is highly responsive and intelligent, so training should be fun and easy. Matilda is an outgoing and lovable girl -- below is her puppy photo.

TILLY - WIRE-HAIRED TERRIER
Tilly was a stray picked by a kind passer by on the busy Emyvale/Aughnacloy N2 Road. She is approx. 10 years old and was covered with fleas, so her coat was not in great condition. She was so happy to receive attention and just loves being with people. She has done her time in the Pound where she was not reclaimed and is now waiting on her new forever home. She is such a little sweetheart -- a kind, gentle natured girl. You would never guess she is an older dog as she is spritely and energetic.

RUBY - LABRADOR
RUBY - LABRADOR
My name is Ruby and I am 4 years. I am bouncy, friendly, love attention and am looking for a new home. I love to play fetch and my energy is boundless! Will you train me not to jump up and also to walk calmly on the lead -- if so, I will be so happy as I want to learn to be a well mannered friend. I am an energetic girl that would like 2 long walks daily and also to learn to come on recall when off lead. Do you know how to teach me this? I travel well in the car, but because I am so bouncy, I could only live with older (teenage) children. If you are experienced in training a dog to learn basic canine manners, please come and meet me and you will see I am well worth the time and effort, because I will give you all my love and devotion in return!
ROBIN - LURCHER
This very sweet and gentle soul is approx. 2 years old. He walks so nicely on the lead, is quiet, and so easy to fall in love with as he is affectionate in such an undemanding way. Robin is good with other dogs (even males -- even though he is not neutered yet)!He is house-trained, and already a favourite with all of us and our dog walker volunteers. He is sharing his kennel with Tyson.
For some very strange reason, we have a difficult time re-homing Lurchers, and all I can say is they are some of the nicest dogs you could ever meet -- sensitive and loving and make wonderful pets!! Anyone that has owned a Lurcher will attest to this! Robin is a wonderful fella who will be a joy to welcome into your home and life. To learn more about Lurchers, please visit the website below:
