Adi – 7 year old male Collie Cross

Adi is a 7 to 8 years old Collie cross, he has lived on the streets for most of his life. In 2008 Adi was found with a large nail stuck in his skull, put there by a man who thought he was a threat to his chickens. Adi escaped death and the the nail was surgically removed and he continued to live life on the streets until last year when it was decided after the killing law came into force Adi’s life was in more danger than ever before, so after many successful attempts of evading the dog catchers Adi was taken to a safe place to await his chance of freedom.

Since being in the UK Adi has proved to be an affectionate and loving dog who despite his past has a love for people although he can be afraid of new situations, he is improving daily and doing well in his foster home. He seems to love the people he lives with and constantly wants to be with them. Adi is looking for someone special with the patience and understanding to work with him and help him overcome his fears. He gets on very well with all the dogs in his foster home and would benefit from living with another confident dog to show that life really is fun.

Adi is waiting for his special someone with the space in their heart, the time and patience to help him become the dog he truly wants to be.


Buster – 7 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Buster is a handsome older Gentleman who has come to us after coming to us as a stray. He is a 7 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross. Buster is a lovely older dog and always greets you with a wagging tail! He is very good with other dogs with out and could possibly live with a calm female dog. He loves his walks and walks very well on the lead. He is a playful boy, but is equally happily to snuggle up on the sofa! Buster hasn’t been cat tested. He will be neutered before being rehomed.


Tess – 10 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Tess is a 10 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier girl who was brought to the shelter due to her owners ill health. Tess is rather portly and needs to lose lots of weight. Currently the shelter staff and volunteers are giving Tess lots of exercise to reduce her weight in a bid to ensure she remains healthy. Tess is a firm favourite with the staff and is extremely loving. Tess can be rehomed with calm quiet dogs, no cats and children aged 8 years and upwards.


Pasha – 8 year old female Bichon Frise

This sweet little dog is Pasha, she’s an 8 year old Bichon Frise girl who was neglected by her previous owner along with her friend a little Peke called Hanny. The owner had become bored of them and we became involved when they literally were going to be thrown onto the streets. Thanks to our network of rescuers they were taken under our wing , vet checked and because of the state we found them in they even went to the doggy groomers to remove the knots and dirt. Underneath the knots and neglected fur were two gorgeous princesses. Both wonderful dogs, house trained, great with humans and other dogs even cats. Pasha has been through so very much in her life yet she holds no malice towards humans.

Pasha is sterilised, microchipped, fully Vaccinated (Inc anti rabies), dewormed, deflead, vet Checked, DEFRA compliant and has very own full EU Pet passport. If you could offer this wonderful dog a forever home where she will only ever know love and care, where she will will be treated like the little princess she truly is then please contact our charity as soon as possible, to be fostered in Staffordshire.


Ellie – 8-9 year old female American Bulldog

Ellie, the 8-and-a-half-year-old American Bulldog, is the Helen Mirren of the doggy world, full of loveliness, wisdom, and grace! This gentle darling may be a little boisterous on occasion, but she possesses all the love and generosity of your most cherished grandparent. Ellie may regale you with tales of her youth; of how she used to bounce around without a care in the world, and how her startling beauty attracted the admiring glances of every male pooch in the town, but, though her litheness and athleticism may have somewhat diminished in the intervening years, she remains an absolutely gorgeous old girl. However she is now at that point in life where she recognizes the vital importance of the simple things in life; a nice, gentle stroll each day, good food, and a generous helping of tender, loving care. Her advancing years mean that it is of paramount importance that she finds a lovely home as soon as possible, to ensure that she can while away her remaining years with the comfort, safety, and love that she undoubtedly deserves.

Don’t let her age fool you though, she still packs some strength is those creaking bones and, as such, she will still require an owner who is capable of handling a larger dog. Her charming personality and loving temperament do however mean that she will be suitable with most any home environment, excluding those households with children under the age of 5 – simply because of her size. She mixes well with other dogs, and would even be suitable with existing cats – as long as introductions are done gradually and sensibly.


Chico – 6 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Here’s Chico, a 6-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross, though despite his age he retains the playfulness of a mere pup! His excitement at the prospect of a walk is obvious, but don’t let his energetic character distract from how loving he is and this is reflected in his eagerness for fuss and attention. Chico has a real zest for life, he requires some basic training but if you are willing to put in the effort with him you will be generously rewarded with a wonderful friend and companion.

Regrettably, his high energy nature would make him unsuitable for elderly owners or for households with children under 10 years old, whilst he would also be best placed in a home that didn’t have existing animals. Otherwise please give Chico some thought as he is deserving of a lovely home and you surely won’t regret it.


Lady – 8 year old female Doberman Cross

Lady is a beautiful 8 year old Doberman cross. This lovely girl came to us heavily pregnant after being removed from unsuitable circumstances. Lady gave birth at the centre and has been an amazing mummy. She has reared 8 happy, healthy puppies that are now ready to go off on their own adventures and would now like to find her happy ever after. Lady can sometimes be a little timid of strangers, but one she knows you are friendly she likes nothing more than getting lots of love. She enjoys her walks, human company and cuddles. Lady can be rehomed with older children but does not like cats. She would like a home where she is the only dog at present so she can settle into a routine. This special girl really deserves a comfy, kind home where she can relax.


Poppy and Josie – 3-9 year old female Yorkshire Terriers

Poppy and Josie are a sweet pair of Yorkshire Terriers. They are 9 and 3 years old and came into the centre because their owner became unwell. They are both used to being in a home and would like to settle into their new one very soon. Poppy and Josie really love the company of people and like nothing more than sitting on your lap getting lots of cuddles. They also enjoy going out for short walks. The girls really like being together and we are therefore looking for a home where someone can take them both on. A quiet home where someone will be around most of the time would suit them best as they can be a little timid in busy or new situations. Poppy and Josie can live with other dogs, cats and older children.


Sammy – 11 year old male Shih Tzu

Sammy is an 11 year old Shih Tzu who is a real cuddly chap. He loves a walk and is great off lead and is in foster with other dogs. He loves attention and a lap to snooze in, he would like someone who is around most of the time because he adores human company. Currently in foster in Chelmsford Essex.


Lily – 7 year old female Parson Russell Terrier

Lilly has the kindest nature, and greets everyone, human and canine, calmly. She has never shown any aggression and is a real poppet! It is not known how she is with cats, but from her reaction to a squirrel in the park yesterday, it is best to assume she could not live with a cat. Lily is playful – though needs to learn that she must give up the toy if she wants the game to continue! She loves a cuddle, and eats well. She is house-trained and not destructive. She does pull a bit on the lead, but this is something that could easily be trained.

Absolutely through no fault of her own, Poor Lilly has already had four homes. She is a resilient little soul, and her zest for life has not been dented by this, but she does seem to have a certain sad resignation that she had better depend on herself, as humans come and go. For this reason, Lilly needs an owner who is absolutely committed to meeting her needs for the rest of her life, come rain or shine. She has so much love to give, and needs the same in return in her forever home.

Lilly is good with children, and could live with older children who will respect her need for peace and quiet at times. Lilly could live with another dog, but would be equally happy as an only pet. Because Lilly has been left for many, many hours alone we are seeking a home where someone is at home for most of the day. She has had too much loneliness already. Lilly is in excellent health. She will be spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Lilly is currently in foster in Southend-on-Sea, Essex.


Bobby – 12 year old male Shih Tzu

Bobby is just a charming chap who loves everything. He is great with other dogs and cats and loves people. He does have a mobility issue with his back legs. He has seen the vet and nothing surgical can be done. His back legs do not work very well but he manages to get around well and is happy to have a good mooch in the garden.

Bobby is on a low dose of Loxicom just to make sure he is comfortable because the way he walks puts pressure on his back and he can sometimes be a little sore. He is going to be seen by the physiotherapist to see if a set of wheels would be beneficial to him. They will only be needed should he want to go for a walk. In the home he has no need for help and manages to get around fine. He will need a new home with carpet though as he has difficulty on slippery surfaces. He is clean in the house and will ask to go out, if there is a step to get back in he will ask for you to lift him. He will need new owners able to lift him on occasion should he need it.

Bobby does not like to be left for long so owners who are around for most of the day and who are happy for Bobby to have his bed in their room at night. He makes no sound just curls up and drifts off until you get up. Bobby cannot manage stairs though. Bobby is a little deaf and his eyesight is not perfect, but he is a total charmer who deserves a very special retirement home. Please don’t let his needs put you off, this boy is the easiest chap I have had the pleasure of fostering. His pictures do not do him justice, Bobby had a case of camera shyness!

Bobby has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped and had flea and worming treatment. He is currently on foster in Aldershot Hampshire.


Ruby – 6 year old female Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Ruby is a 6 year old female Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Gorgeous Ruby is an ex breeding dog. She is a great girl who just loves people. Ruby will need to be re homed with at least one other resident dog as she does like to cuddle up with her K9 friends. Ruby is deaf so will need owners who are happy to keep her on lead and understand what her needs will be. She loves her walks and is not nervous. After a walk she loves to cuddle up on the sofa and will happily while away the afternoon.

Ruby will need new owners who are around for most of the day, she is great with everyone so could be re homed with older sensible children. She is not great with cats or small furries and cannot be re homed with them at all. She is a confident little lady, but not pushy and will make a fantastic friend to the right family. Ruby has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped. She is currently on foster in Alton, Hampshire.
