Meet Nelson

Nelson is looking for an experienced dog owner who has dealt with resource guarding issues in the past. He needs an adult only home where there will be no visiting children, and where he will be the only pet. He would like a home with direct access into a secure and private garden, in a quiet area away from the city centre.

Nelson is a happy wee boy who loves to have fun. He likes playing with his toys, whether that’s chasing after a ball, throwing around a squeaky toy, or keeping himself amused with a tasty filled Kong. He has lots of energy so likes to keep active and might even like to run with his new owner or go hill walking. He is an affectionate boy but he does need a bit of space at times, and he enjoys learning and loves enrichment. Nelson does have resource guarding issues, so needs an understanding owner who will commit to working with a professional to manage this. He can be reactive around other dogs, but has been working on this and is now happy to wear a muzzle and is more likely to take a treat than react badly. Nelson has a lot of potential and is sure to be a very rewarding pet for the right owner.

Meet Biscuit

Biscuit is a nervous girl who is wary of strangers and needs a owner who will be prepared to visit her a few times so she can get to know them. She is looking for an owner with experience of resource guarding, who preferably has had a nervous dog in the past. She needs a adult only home, with no visiting children under the age of 16, where she will be the only pet. She will need a home with a garden of her own which is not shared with other neighbours.

Biscuit is a super high energy girl who is very independent and prefers to have her own space to play with her toys, rather than have attention. She is ball obsessed and loves collecting toys from our paddock and bringing them back to her kennel so she can continue to play with them there. She can seem aloof at times and really doesn’t like a lot of fussing unless she has initiated the contact, and this is usually limited to the people that she trusts the most. When she has settled into her new home and gained confidence, Biscuit may like to do an activity like Canicross or Flyball to keep her mind and body active. She would prefer a home with a private garden so she can play outside, and will enjoy visits to the local park for a good sniff around or to a freedom field so she can enjoy running off some of her energy.

Meet Ziva

Ziva is looking for an experienced owner who has had a nervous dog in the past. She needs an adult only home where there won’t be children visiting, but she could potentially live with another dog if introductions go well. She needs a quiet home in a quieter area away from the city centre, where she will have company for most of the day.

Ziva is an extremely nervous girl who is very wary around new people and needs a dedicated owner who will visit her until she is happy to accept them. The person who takes her must be committed to improving her social skills with the help of a professional trainer in one-to-one sessions. She is very loving with people that she knows and is sure to be a very rewarding pet for the right owner. Ziva enjoys getting out for walks but can become overwhelmed easily, so needs to wear her muzzle when she is out and about. She loves going to our paddock area because it is enclosed and safe for her to run around after her ball. Ziva loves other dogs and may like to live with a doggy friend, but as she can become easily overexcited around dogs, her new friend would need to be able to cope with this.

Meet Candy

Candy is looking for an experienced owner who has had a Torti or other feisty cat in the past. She needs an adult only home where she will be the only pet, and needs a home with direct access into a quiet garden.

Candy is a sweet girl who is generally happy and quiet natured. Like all Torti’s she can have her feisty moments though, so needs an owner who has the experience to watch for this. She loves her food but is on a diet and needs help to watch her waistline to make sure she doesn’t put her lost weight back on. She loves her bed and enjoys having some quiet time so she can snooze happily. Candy isn’t very playful but she likes going outside, so needs to have direct access into a garden where she can explore and hopefully burn off a few calories.

Meet Ruby

Ruby is looking for an experienced owner with an adult only home. She needs to be the only dog in the home and would like to have direct access to a private and secure garden where she can burn off some energy.

She is a sweet, loving girl who loves to say hello to everyone she meets. She loves going for walks and doing zoomies is a favourite of hers. She is a boisterous girl who easily gets over excited which can lead to her becoming mouthy. Her new owners will need to continue her training, including working on her manners so she can meet people and dogs politely. Ruby would benefit from having an owner who has had an energetic and boisterous dog before.

Meet Saffron

Saffron is looking for an experienced cat owner who has had a feisty cat in the past. She needs an adult only where there won’t be children visiting, and needs to be the only pet. She would like to live in a quiet area away from the city centre, in an area which does not have a lot of other cats.

Saffron is an independent girl who likes to do her own thing. She gets very upset when she sees other cats and can redirect when feeling frustrated. She has been used to going outdoors but seeing other cats has caused issues for her in the past. She may be better suited to staying indoors because of this, but needs the option to go outdoors in case indoor life doesn’t suit her. She needs to stay in an area where there aren’t a lot of other cats around as she will become upset even if she sees one through a window. She loves a comfy bed where she can have a snooze, and likes having a box to hide in if she feels anxious. Saffron likes playing with catnip toys or just rolling around in some catnip, and she loves tasty cat treats.

Meet Roxy and Bella

Roxy and Bella are looking for a home together and would suit an experienced cat owner. They would like a home with a cat flap straight into a garden, and may suit living with children aged 7 or more who are used to cats. They would like to be the only pets living in their home.

Roxy and Bella are an affectionate and friendly pair who would love to find a forever home. Roxy is the more confident of the two and adores being made a fuss of, while Bella can be a little shy at first but comes around quickly after getting a little attention. They would like a home with a cat flap so they can go outside to play whenever they want to. They both love a comfy bed where they can curl up for a snooze. Bella loves to play with toys, especially any with feathers, and although Roxy likes to play when she is in the mood, she much prefers having a cuddle.

Meet Peter

Peter is a lovely old boy who deserves to spend his golden years in a loving home. He would prefer to have company for most of the day, and he may suit living with dog savvy children aged 10 or more. He could potentially live with a quiet dog if introductions go well.

Peter is a gentle and very sweet boy who has lots of love to share. He is very affectionate and cuddly, and even thinks he should have the chance to be a lap dog. Even though he has his excitable moments and does love his soft toys into literal pieces, he is a very easy going boy who is a joy to have around. He enjoys shorter walks, and likes sniffing around in our paddock. He gets on well with other dogs and enjoys meeting his doggy pals when he’s out, and may like to live with a nice laid back friend.

She may suit living with dog savvy high school aged children but will need to be the only pet in a home with a private garden.

She needs an owner who can help her gain confidence and work on her social skills. Bella has lots of energy so would suit an active owner who will enjoy being energetic with her.

Meet Poppy

Poppy is looking for an experienced owner who lives in a quieter area away from the city centre. She may suit living with high school aged children but needs to be the only pet in her home. She would like a home with direct access into a private garden with high fences.

Poppy is a nervous girl who is very anxious around new people and in busy environments. She is very sweet with people that she knows and enjoys being fussed over, but takes a while to build a bond with new people. She is an energetic and playful girl who would suit an active person who will enjoy taking her on long walks in a quiet area away from traffic. As well as needing work to overcome her anxiety, Poppy needs to work on her fear reactivity around other dogs and her desire to chase after cars, so she needs a committed owner who is willing to spend time overcoming these issues.
