LEXI - COLLIE MIX

Meet Lexi -- our new addition to our shelter. Lexi is like a small Whippet/Collie mix, very petite in size and is approx. 9-12 months old. She has not been well socialized and is nervous with new surroundings and people -- she will shiver and wet at first, but once she relaxes, she is very affectionate. Lexi would love a family that has the time to bring her out of her shell and get her use to new environment. 

ELLIE

ELLIE - JACK RUSSELL TERRIER MIX (RESERVED)

This shy beauty is very sweet and a bit shell shocked after arriving into our care yesterday (31 July). Ellie is approx. 2-3 years old and is timid and feeling unsure at the moment. She will let you pick her up (snuggles in), but trembles with unsurety -- no aggression, just scared. Ellie is as sweet as can be, a very special girl looking for a special family who will have the patience and understanding to make her feel safe and loved. As Ellie is a new arrival and in isolation, we will provide updates on her progress. 

RIO

RIO - COLLIE (RESERVED)

Rio is a juvenile -- only 5 months old and already has some basic training -- knows the sit command and learning to walk on the lead -- but still jumps up to receive attention. This is natural, but easy to correct. His nature is extremely biddable and loving. Rio craves attention and interaction, therefore, requires a home where someone is home most of the day to provide him with lots of playtime, exercise & positive training. His lovely personality will win you over!

DIGGER

DIGGER - SPANIEL/COLLIE MIX (RESERVED)

Kind and extremely sweet, Digger is a young male, approx. 1 1/2 years (DOB: March 2013). He was a very much loved family pet that was recently voluntarily surrendered to us. He was well cared for and part of the family. Digger is a fabulous fella who is used to children, good with other dogs (that are also gentle and not dominant). He is sharing a kennel with our lovely, Rossi, and they have become great pals. Digger is lead trained, house-trained, and would like a calm new home -- one that will allow him time to settle in and gain confidence until he gets his bearings. P.S. It is not always easy for dogs to come into a rescue after coming from a loving home environment. If you are looking for an easy and chilled out fella to welcome into your home and life, please come meet Digger!! 

WINSTON - SPINGER SPANIEL

WINSTON - SPRINGER SPANIEL (RESERVED)

This wonderful young fella just arrived into our care as a voluntary surrender -- his owner bought his as a pup from a breeder and didn't have an enclosed area, so Winston was kept on a chain most of the time. He is now 1 year 7 months old and was born on Christmas Day 2012. Winston is a fabulous fella who adores attention and is looking for a home that can provide lots of exercise and allow him to be a house-living pet. Winston did very well with his first lesson on the lead and it will be easy to further his training. Winston was so delighted to wander about in the exercise fields -- freedom from the chain! He would like to be the only pet in his new home -- but does get along with female dogs that are not dominant. He is a now a happy, very friendly and most biddable guy in need of a wonderful home -- ideally, someone that loves and understands what Spaniels require to be content! Great dog -- he will be a pleasure to welcome into your home and heart - after all he has endured!

ROCKY

ROCKY - LABRADOR/TERRIER MIX (RESERVED)

Rocky has such a gentle and loving nature. He is only 10 months old (DOB:  4/9/13) and is used to children. He came into our care because he managed to get into the owner's chicken coop. Poor Rocky was very unsure/scared when he arrived on Wednesday, 2 July (tail between his legs). He was introduced to some of the our quieter dogs and did well in their company. While Rocky had never been allowed in the house in his previous home, he must be a house-living pet/companion in his new home. Rocky walks well on the lead and is a sensitive and kind dog. Rocky has been introduced to compatible male and female dogs and is enjoying his canine socialization. He is less timid now and anxiously awaits his new home! 

RODGER

RODGER - DALMATION/SPANIEL MIX (RESERVED)

Rodger came into our care along with his sister, Suzie, and  he approx. 4 months old. They were the last of an unwanted litter. Rodger has had no basic training -- so would best suit a family with older children -- as he is very bouncy, excitable and jumps up to receive attention! Rodger requires a home where someone is home most the day to spend the time, interaction and care a juvenile pup needs. He is so friendly and playful and will make a fun and enjoyable canine friend and it will be fun to teach him all his canine manners, so he will be a well behaved companion for life!   

ACE

ACE - GREYHOUND

Meet Ace, a 2 year old male that is new into our care because he did not make the grade as a racing dog. He is great with other dogs (he has been introduced to Suzie, Rodger and Albert) and he is very tolerant of the young ones). He has a fantastic nature and is a cool and gentle guy. For anyone familiar with Greyhounds or Lurchers, they know they are wonderful pets -- so easy going and gentle! Please come and meet Ace and see for yourself what a marvellous guy he is. 

RUBY - LABRADOR

RUBY - LABRADOR 

My name is Ruby and I will be 4 years old in August. I am bouncy, friendly, love attention and am looking for a new home. 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 get along with canine friends and might not mind felines either! 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

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:

CREEVE

CREEVE - TERRIER/COLLIE MIX

Handsome and friendly, Creeve is approx. 3-4 years old male. Creeve would be best suited to a home with no other dogs so he can receive all the love and care he deserves without having to compete for attention. Can you offer Creeve a secure garden/yard and a warm place to sleep indoors as well as daiily walks and lots of love? If so, please contact us or visit our shelter to meet Creeve!   

When Creeve arrived at our shelter, we noticed he was holding up his back left leg and he was seen by the vet on Tuesday, 13th May. The vet determined he had an old injury to his pelvis and femar and we will arrange for him to be operated on next week. Creeve had his surgery on his broken leg on 4th June and is recovering well at the shelter (he was also neutered). Creeve is doing great post surgery and is running about and full of fun -- a great dog who will be a loyal and devoted companion.  

ROSSI

ROSSI - BORDER COLLIE (ON TRIAL)

Rossi is a beautiful 10-12 month old Border Collie -- she was given up by her owner as she was not interested in being a working dog with cattle or sheep. Her owner felt it was best for Rossi to be re-homed as a family pet. She is lead trained, good with children and other dogs. Rossi is very intelligent and an extremely active young female, and would best suit an experienced owner of Border Collies. Rossi will chase her tail when feeling stressed or anxious, and is having a hard time relaxing in our kennel environment. When we bring her into our office, away from the other dogs, she calms down and is so biddable! Rossi just wants to be with people and is very eager to please and just needs that special home that understands her needs. 

DAISY

DAISY - LABRADOR/POINTER MIX

Meet Daisy - our 3-4 year old Labrador/Pointer mix female. Daisy is full of energy, so will require a home that can provide her with lots of exercise and can further her training. Daisy is very smart and eager to please, so with treats on hand, she will work hard to learn all her canine manners. She is a fun dog and is enjoying meeting new canine friends -- she gets along with other male dogs that aren't dominant or overly lively. She  has a nice and super friendly personality and will make a rewarding canine friend. 

DEBBIE & ROXY

DEBBIE & ROXY - GERMAN POINTER MIX & JACK RUSSELL TERRIER (FEMALES)

These 2 beauties came in together and we want them to go to their forever home as a pair -- they have lived together for most of their lives. If you are looking for a canine pair -- little and large, these 2 females would be perfect! Debbie is a petite German Pointer mix female approx. 3 years old and little Roxy is a Jack Russell female approx. 5 years old. They are house-trained, and are so biddable and adorable. Little Roxy will sit on Debbie's back when relaxing, and it would be a shame to break up these long-time friends. To learn more about them, please contact or visit our shelter.
