I’m Margot, a pretty 3 year old female Staffie. I am really polite, I like making friends and going for strolls! Unfortunately I am not keen on other dogs and cannot live with cats. Children in the home need to be used to dogs and older. I’m a happy, waggy dog who likes being part of everything that is going on!
Frodo, Tamera, Lulu, Ginge & S
Meet Frodo (2 1/2 years), Tamera (3 yrs), Lulu (3 yrs), Ginge (3 yrs) and Suzie (2 yrs), a bonded herd of 5 very sweet and confident guinea pigs who will be rehomed together. Due to the size of the group, their set up will need to be a bit bigger than what is required for a pair.
My name is Wizbit and I am a 4 year old male Lurcher (medium). I can be a little shy at first when meeting people but quickly make friends, love cuddles and playing with tennis balls! I am generally social with other dogs but not cats, I like to chase small furries! I get really worried when left alone and need a more experienced home that is able to work on my training and have researched my breed type. I’m a handsome little Lurcher who has had a tough time previously but I can offer you my devotion and will be a great walking companion.
I’m Tammy, an 8 months old female large mongrel (maybe Ridgeback/ Boxer?). I’ve had a rough time of life and will need patient, understanding people to help continue my training. I am eager to learn and am already starting to flourish with the correct support. I was really scared of strangers but have been learning to make friends and now enjoy interacting. I’m learning to mix with other dogs and have learnt to play. I have not been cat tested yet. I’m a bouncy young dog and will need an active home able to manage my size and strength once fully grown.
Hello, I’m Loki, a handsome 4 ½ year old male Husky. I’m friendly and love going running! I prefer dogs that are the same size as me but no cats thank you! I could live with older children and am looking for an active family that will allow me to be involved in adventures and fun with them! Please research my breed type’s character and needs to ensure you can provide the required environment and level of exercise to keep me happy.
Hello my names Teddy and I am a scruffy 2 year old male terrier mix (Lakeland type??). I am partially sighted and will require eye drops for the rest of my life. I am determined not to let this spoil my enjoyment of life. I have a cheeky, independent character and need a home that will enjoy my terrier personality... I can be stubborn at times too but am adorable with it!! I am not so keen on other dogs due to having poor sight, but i am learning to walk with calm dogs so hopefully this can be worked on with time and patience. I become defensive to protect myself as I cannot tell if they are friendly or not. I’m not suited to live with cats or small furries, I have the terrier desire to hunt! I need an adult only home that has researched my breed type and understands my needs, also that can provide plenty of squeaky toys as they are my favourite!!
My name is Rosie and I’m a busy 2 year old female mongrel (small/ medium, maybe Corgi cross?!). I’m a bit of a hunter and like chasing things so will need good control from owners to ensure I don’t get up to mischief!! I’m Ok with other dogs but not cats and children in the home need to be older.
My name is Edwina, I am a 10 months old female Schnauzer cross. I have been enjoying my training whilst in kennels, I am clever and like having plenty of activity to keep me from mischief! I’m lively and busy and will need an active home that can commit to continuing my training and ensure I am not bored! I am not suited to live with cats but I could maybe live with older children. I need continued training around other dogs to help develop my social skills. Please research my breed type, I have a big character and need support to continue my development.
Zebedee And Dougal
Hi we are Zebedee and Dougal we are two neutered male rabbits around 3yrs 6months of age. We are confident and friendly and are brothers and best friends, so are looking for a loving forever home together.
Barney & Freddy
Hi, we are Barney and Freddy (brothers) aged 9 years old. Sadly, we were unhappy living with a dog so we are hoping to find a dog free forever home. We are both loving boys though I am more confident than Freddy. He likes women more than men. I am a lap cat and like a fuss. Freddy takes longer to get to know you but once he trusts you, he is also very loving. We both enjoy going outside so we do need a garden please. We may be ok with another cat but absolutely no dogs. If the home has children, they would need to be older as Freddy can be jumpy at times. Can you offer us a loving, forever home please? Love Barney & Freddy x
Chickpea, Charlotte & Emily
