We are happy to accept a minimum donation of £100 to adopt a dog.
Potential adopters can only view a dog once we have spoken with you and carried out a home visit.
LYNX 6 yrs old (male) German Shepherd cross, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He can overreact towards some dogs he meets (lunging, barking). NO CATS or LIVESTOCK. He is ok around older children (15+), ok in the car. He is never walked off the lead and requires a bit of training. He has been in the kennels for the past year and tends to get very excited when he sees people or goes for a walk. He can be fearful of people in uniforms, he is best suited as the only dog in the home. Potential adopters must be prepared to meet with LYNX a number of times. He is a lovely, friendly and very people-oriented boy who is just waiting for his special someone.
LEAH 6 yrs old (female) German Shepherd cross “Bull” breed (possibly), neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. NO CATS or LIVESTOCK. She has not lived in a home with children, but she is ok around 15+. We don't have any history on the first 2 years of her life. She shows deficiencies in socialisation with people and she is very shy initially. No signs of aggression, LEAH is making great progress in training, she responds well to basic commands but she requires solid recall training. She can get excited and pull on the lead when meeting dogs on walks. She needs a very secure garden as she may escape when unattended. Any person interested in LEAH must be prepared to meet with her a few times, she has so much to offer and she loves to learn.
