Buddy is a very handsome boy he is just over2 years old and in excellent health. He came into rescue through no fault of his own, he was born oversea and brought into this country but his owner was no longer in a position to look after him. As you can see he has a floppy ear which gives him character. .He has not been used to having his nails clipped or ears cleaned so has to be muzzled for this. He has not shown any aggression towards other dogs in kennels, he can be a little mouthy when he gets over excited and will occasionally pull on the lead initially but once into the walk he calms down. He is described as happy, playful, bouncy, fast, friendly and an agile boy who is nosey and clown like he can also on occasions be a little vocal, he can be obsessive with some toys and he understands basic commands. Buddy has been neutered, vaccinated, wormed and chipped, he is lead trained. His current diet is raw and salmon and potato dry. He has not previously lived with children or cats but he has lived with dogs. We feel that Buddy could possibly be rehomed with a calm dog, he seems to respond to dogs rather than people and he could become a dominant dog if allowed. Buddy needs to be rehomed to someone who is very experienced with the breed.

Paddy is the litter mate of Major who is also in Welfare, they came to us through no fault of their own. However, as they were together at their previous home there was some friction , although Paddy will tolerate smaller dogs when out we feel that he should be rehomed as an only dog and no cats. Paddy still needs time spending on him as when in their previous home he was left to his own devices. However he was much loved by his previous owner and came to us after his owner died suddenly. Some house training is still ongoing and his lead training has improved, he has also showed improvements with his commands.

This is Rudy Spot he a a 5 year old boy who has unique markings, a white boy with red brindle patches, he is hard to overlook he has such a sad expression, he came into Welfare through no fault of his own due to a family breakup. Rudi has lived with children but Welfare feel the best and correct home for him now is with with someone who is older or maybe a couple as all he needs now is a quiet life. Rudi is on daily medication which is gabapentin, his dosage has been greatly reduced and managed. A supply of this medication will be made available when he is rehomed, He is on this medication as he has a spinal problem which has been seen by our vet, who has said his condition is not operable but can be managed by medication and the correct exercise, he sometimes changes his gait but it is hard to see as a bad condition as he throws himself about especially first thing in the morning. He is not keen on some big dogs or small dogs that threaten him but will walk them if if no threat is presented. Rudy is spotlessly clean, he has never been known to chew and he does not pull on the lead. He is a very gentle boy. Please only experienced owners to apply who will take advice from Welfare and follow it so as to benefit this boy.
This is Lola who is 3 years old, she is a larger miniature who came into Welfare through no fault of her own. Lola is vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. Lola is good with other dogs, we have videos and photographs of her out running with other breeds of dogs when she was being walked by her dog walker. Lola could possibly live with cats but with a very slow introduction. Lola does not pull on the lead, she is clean in the kennels and the house, she eats well and is at the moment a little on the fat side. Lola is on medication and she does require blood tests occasionally, this is for a thyroid condition, we can ask for the vets report to be available to whomever adopts her to give to their own vets. Lola was a very shy girl when she first came into Welfare she kept herself to herself and took her time before she had anything to do with the kennel staff, but now she wags her tail all the time, so she may at first need time to settle in and get to know her adopters. Lola loves her food which helps with her ongoing training but saying that she is a very obedient girl.
This is Bella who is an 8 month old puppy who also came into Welfare through no fault of her own. Bella is vaccinated and microchipped but is not spayed at the moment as she is too young. Bella is a silly puppy who needs to know her boundaries, she grew up in a house of different breeds, all the dogs were around the same age so you can imagine this created some problems and Bella was given up to us, Bella has a good appetite and she eats very well. When she came into us she had a habit of play fighting with her lead, this is being worked on and she is improving . Bella is obedient, she sits, stays and waits for her food also for gates and door opening. Her house training is coming on now. She does get very excitable near other dogs of different sizes but she is not aggressive. Bella is however a very active, pretty girl who will benefit from one to one work. She is in fine form but could get obsessive with toys if not controlled. She loves a kong with treats inside to keep her busy young mind occupied.
This is Bella who lost her leg as a puppy, she has just come into Welfare and at present is being assessed.
Lola Approx. 3 years old, a girl full of character, she has a lot to say for herself and is selective over which dogs she likes or dislikes, walks well on her lead, she can be stand offish so will need a firm handler who can easily mix discipline with love and kindness to continue her training.
