If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

22-2-19 - Zini is an exbreeding Westie. She is nervous and will run away as much as possible so we are giving her some space to settle. She is a very nervous girl and will need another kind dog to live with in her new home to help her learn all about housetraining and help her relax. Zini will need an adult only home who are experienced with ex breeders as she would find children too scary at the moment and will need a secure home where she couldnt run and hide. Dogs like Zini can and do settle, they just need to feel secure and loved so if you have the time and patience to help this little discover a whole new world then please consider her.

11-03-19 UPDATE

Recently I have been working with Zini and what a lovely little girl she is.  She was very nervous when she first came to us but as the days go by she is coming out of her shell. Zini has been harness training but today took her first steps outside of her comfort zone!! She did really well considering she has never walked on a lead before, we went into the garden walked around a little and explored her surroundings, really enjoying the flowers.
Zini will now let me smooth her without running away and take treats from my hand.  I must say she does this very gently. Although she will take time to come out of her shell with new people I have seen her gaining a little confidence as the days have passed. She doesn't know how life is meant to be so is nervous of new things, she will need a family who has the time and patients to work with her and will need a resident dog to help her with things like house training and lead walking this may take some time but I know she will get there.
Zizi hasn't had the best life so far so she is looking for a home where there is a lot of love and when she is ready lot's of cuddles too.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so.
