I need training around some other dogs, am not suited to live with cats but could live with confident older children able to help with my training. I love to play and will need a big toy box too please!
I am a new arrival awaiting assessment, further information to follow. I am a 2 year old male springer spaniel.
Hello my name is Ernie and I am an 8 year old large cross breed. I’m looking for a new home where I can have lots of affection and fuss. I like other dogs and could possibly live with one if we were a good match, any resident children need to be older and used to living with a dog. I’m learning to walk nicely in a halti but will want to have a good run around in a secure area. I have just returned to kennels from being in foster here is what my foster carers have to say..... "Since he has been with us he has been a perfect gentleman, he does as he is told such as sit, stay, leave, off and calm? He walks very well on the lead. He is very sociable but gentle at the same time when he meets other dogs in the park, even when he see’s a cat, rabbit or squirrel he responds to Ernie leave and will walk on. We did not walk him off the lead because he is not ours. He loves his food and we did feed him separately from our dog as she would try and dive in and eat the lot, he does not really understand biscuits or chews but is slowly getting used to them. We hope this information helps to give someone that may be interested in adopting him some idea into the soft nature that Ernie has."

My name is Red and I am an active, attentive and inquisitive 2 year old male Husky. I was rescued from appalling conditions at a puppy farm, confined and unused to human contact. I have been undergoing extensive rehabilitation and though still nervous I am ready to start the process of finding a family to call my own. I will need experienced, patient and very committed people to continue to show me the kindness I need and support my development. I would benefit from living with other dogs but not cats and children would be considered if older. I will have specific needs from a home environment and the ability of the family to continue my rehabilitation. Please research my breed type’s character too.

Hi, my name is Wallie and I am a 15 week old male Border Collie X Siberian Husky. I’ve got specific requirements from a new home so potential adopters need to look past how cute I am and think about my needs please. I am really bright and high energy too so will need a home where my requirement for mental and physical stimulation can be met. I will also need strong commitment to training, at times my character is very strong but I also have a fearful side and so need a high level of support to help me grow into a well behaved and social adult. I could possibly live with a medium to large dog but no cats and children in the home would need to be older/ teenagers. I am not suited to a first time dog owner.

Each year we receive some 1500 new animals at Raystede. For many of them what they most need is a loving home where they can make a fresh start. When we rehome an animal, our job is a bit like a dating agency, finding the best match between each animal and their possible future owner.
Every animal has different characteristics and habits which may or may not fit with your home life. That is why at Raystede we take such special care to get to know every animal before rehoming.
For example, for our dogs and cats we use a traffic light system which gives valuable information about the needs of each dog, both to our visitors and volunteers. Only then does the matchmaking begin!
