White – 3 year old female Bulldog Cross

White is a female Bulldog Cross aged approximately 3 years old. She is looking for a home with garden, families with children 10-12 years and above will be considered and no full time workers please as we aren’t sure if she is used to being left alone for long periods. White will need careful and slow introductions with other dogs and new situations as she has been locked away from the outside world for a year, with little interaction with other dogs. No cats please. She came into kennels as a group of 10 dogs last year and had had puppies, these dogs were all living together in one household and were neglected and suffering from various health problems. Once the puppies were older they were all separated and kenneled separately. She lost her home, her doggie companions and her family all at once but to her credit she has coped remarkably well so far in kennels and is the happiest, most affectionate girly you could ever wish to meet.

White is a very affectionate lady, she absolutely loves human company and is friendly with anyone who will pay her attention. She loves a stroke and cuddles and will give you a slobbery kiss if you let her! She adores a massage of her whole body especially her shoulders, she would sit for hours if you have the time. If you stop rubbing, she turns around and looks at you with a sad expression willing you on to give her another go! When she is in her kennel, she leans up to the bars and will stand for hours if you tickle her with your fingers. She is very gentle when accepting a treat or her food. I would expect her to form a close bond with new owner and family. She responds well to some commands and will do a nice sit and stay. White can initially get excited when outside her kennel and pulls on lead, whether she is just so eager to get out of her kennel we aren’t quite sure but she does calm down.

Poor White doesn’t really stand out from other rescue Bulldogs and she isn’t the most pretty of them either but what she lacks in looks she makes up with affection and love, which is far more important. White is a typical example of a friendly loving, loyal, happy Bulldog, always pleased to see you and forever showering you with cuddles and sloppy kisses. Even if you aren’t looking for a bull breed, please do consider our girl as she is a smashing sweetie who will become a wonderful companion in the right family. Wonderful White needs some luck in her life as she hasn’t had much up to now, can you find room in your heart and home for this most ugly but beautiful girl?

All our dogs have a veterinary health check and are micro-chipped, neutered, flea/worm treated and are fully vaccinated. They also come with 6 weeks free insurance.


Cora – 3 year old female Cross-Breed

Cora is an absolute sweet heart but is quite a nervous girl so this does need taking into consideration. She needs a older confident male to help keep her settled and steady. Cora was returned to us as due to her nervous nature out and about on walks should she become worried or frightened by another dog she can re direct. Either into the other dog you are walking or at your knee. Due to this she is best muzzled when out and about. Teamed with her nervous tendencies she does also still have her bossy female moments and can be a bit pushy out and about on walks and attempt to run other dogs down, again due to this she is best kept in a suitable muzzle when running off lead.

Cora travels well, is clean in the house and good to be left with the company of another dog whilst her owners head out. She has been living with an older child and was fine with him, she would be best suited to a quieter home with any children being dog savvy and 8 plus. Cora would be best suited to a home that understands that pandering to a nervous dog is the worst thing you can do. A home that will continue to be consistently firm but fair with their boundaries and allow her to work things out herself. This beautiful girl has obviously had a very hard time wherever she was before landing in Gaps care and any home must understand that she needs time to adapt and learnt to trust and be willing to stick with her through that adaptation period.

Cora is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, treated for parasites, microchipped and spayed. She is currently with us in kennels here in the Midlands but can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful hom evisit.


Freeway – 2-3 year old male Saluki Cross

Meet Freeway a stunning young feathered Saluki boy who came to us a while ago from the stray pound and has been under assessment. It has taken us a while to place Freeway up for rehoming as we wanted to *fully* assess his Aaluki type behaviour. He is typically Aaluki in that he can be quite vocal in everything and especially with other dogs. We wanted to make sure that his silly noises and deep growls were saluki related noise and not aggression. However a few weeks after neutering as can be the case this behaviour and the noise levels started to subside and recently now he has started to actively seek out the other dogs for interaction and will now make attempts to play.

Freeway would be best suited to a home either as an only dog with someone around all or most of the time in the beginning to help settle him in or with a couple of female dogs who will play with him, continue to teach him manners and also be willing to put him into his place when he needs it. He could possibly live with another male as long as there was already a strong female presence in the home to keep the boys in place, I do feel though that a dominant male would not be the best mix for him.

Freeway is a joy to walk! He has that mix of Saluki elegance tied up with the ridiculous prancing silly behaviour that can result in him going from walking nicely to a spin, hop, skip and a jump in glee! He is not cat friendly and we feel that any resident children would be best aged 7 and above and dog savvy. Freeway also travels beautifully and just settles down and relaxes

Freeway is currently with on foster in the midlands and is vaccinated, kennel cough vaccinated, treated for parasites, microchipped and castrated. This beautiful boy can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful home visit and any new family being willing to travel to meet him with any resident dogs.

Rock and Teddy – 3 year old male Cross-Breeds

Rocky and Teddy are best of friends who were rescued from a difficult life on the streets of Romania. We think they are around 3 years old. Since coming to us they have learned to trust people and to walk on the lead, they can still be wary of new things though and need an understanding home. We would like to find them a home together as they are such good friends, and Teddy as the more confident boy helps rocky feel safe, they will need a home with a secure garden and no young children.


Luki – 5 year old male Collie Cross

Luki is a 5 year old male Collie Cross. He is housetrained, great with other dogs and knows basic commands.


George – 3-6 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

George is a 3-6 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He had a terrible start in life. This poor boy needs a loving forever home with no other animals.


Roxy – 4-5 year old female Jack Russell Terrier

Roxy is a delightful little girl who is a bundle of fun. All the while you are happy to play Roxy will keep bringing the ball or toy back to you. She is great with people and loves sensible older children who will play with her. She is clean in the house and travels well in the car. Roxy is looking for active new owners who enjoy walking and lots of playing. She does like to cuddle up next to you on the sofa of an evening and have a good watch of the TV, with strokes of course.

Roxy is best suited to being re homed as an only dog, and no small furries she is a Terrier ! She will need new owners who are around for most of the day as this is what she is used to. Roxy has been neutered, vaccinated and chipped and is currently on foster in Basingstoke Hampshire.


Darcy – 3 year old male Dachshund

Beautiful little tan coloured Dachshund boy, 3 years old he weighs just 5.2kilo so he is a real little lap dog, hes a very cute little lad. Darcy is an affectionate little chap,and he loves a cuddle. He is good with other dogs and likes nothing more than running around the garden with them !!

Poor Darcy was found just in time! When found he was in a very bad condition physically (weighed 3kilo) and had been involved with a car collision as the people that dumped him left him running after their car and he was hit by another. He suffered a broken Jaw, which was repaired with a Small metal plate, so he is now he is back to health and not worried by his past injuries at all. Darcy is house trained. He is just so easy to look after and gets along so well with all the other dogs. He makes us laugh when he tries to keep up with the other dogs when they are running around playing as his little legs cant move quick enough to keep up ! Darcy has not been tested with cats. Darcy would suit a family with older children (over 12 years). Darcy needs to be homed with another dog for company as he is such a friendly loving little boy. His current location is in a foster home in Solihull, West Midlands.

Fosterers report : My view at the moment is Mr Darcy all tucked up tidy next to me while I work after a good run round the park. He is simply one of the most wonderful dogs I have ever been lucky enough to meet and how lucky are we to be fostering him. He is completely house trained, sleeps through the night in or out his crate, he will definitely need a home with another dog and with someone at home vast majority of time because he does suffer from separation anxiety – he is like my little shadow and it’s wonderful. He needs a lot of love but it’s so easy to do as he is so well behaved, loving, happy and great fun. Whoever has him are going to be very lucky.

If we didn’t want to keep fostering we’d have him like a shot. He is vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, neutered, microchipped and has a Pet Passport.


Brian – 3 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Brian is a handsome long legged light Tiger Brindle Stafford boy. He is friendly and he absolutely adores strangers (worst guard dog ever!). Constantly wants fussing etc, he’s very overprotective of his mum and loves her to bits. Brian is left on his own throughout the day and is fully house trained. He’s obedient, sits when told to, says please when receiving a treat etc.

Brian has never been a problem with other dogs, other than the usual play fighting and playing. He’s been walked with them a couple of times but never been left alone with them. He’s not really interacted with children and cats, so we will specify only older children over 13 years.

Brian has been with his owners since he was 8 weeks old. They recently found out that the wife is pregnant, and had to move home. The new landlord has insisted they cannot have pets and therefore this means they can no longer keep Brian.

Brian is still in the home at the moment and not in kennels. It would be nice and less traumatic for Brian if he could find a new home to go to straight from his old home. His currently location is in home in Birmingham, West Midlands. He is vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, neutered, microchipped and his adoption fee is £135.


Bobby – 3 year old male Collie Cross

Bobby is a cute Collie cross approximately 3 years old. He’s neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He’s currently in foster near Chippenham looking for his forever home. He is calm but can be playful and is well behaved but would benefit from some formal training. He is good with other dogs, walks well on the lead and has been clean indoors whilst in foster. He has shown some interest in the resident cats but possibly with training this could be managed. He needs a home with children of 9/10 or over and someone with time and experience to continue his education. Home check and donation apply. Call his fosterer at 01249 730587.

Woop woop woop!!! I’ve just heard that Bobby is going to feature in Dogs Today Magazine in the November issue which is out on 9th October. Very exciting.
