Adopting one of our dogs:
OK, we have been a little bit grumpy recently as people have returned dogs after 12 hours as "didn't settle", or a puppy after a week as "still weeing in house". When you view the dog we do treat people as adults and expect you to understand the concept of taking on a dog and what's involved. We use foster homes as A: we are too poor to have kennels (lol) and B: I have always believed it is best for the dog and new owners to see a dog in a home environment and it is better for us to assess its behaviour. This said we ask you to bring all the family to visit the dog you are interested in as it has to be a family decision and also bring any resident dogs. Please walk the dog and spend some time with him/her, maybe even take it out for the afternoon but PLEASE make sure that this is the dog for you.
Also, dogs change in different environments so they may be amazing in their foster home but may wee, poo or bark in your home initially so please consider this and whether you are prepared to put some work in. This isn't just rescue dogs; it's all dogs and puppies. Dogs often need time to settle; they will not automatically settle in your home, some do but some don't!!
When you view and have spent some time with the dog, if you would like to reserve the dog we ask you to leave a £50 holding fee. This is due to so many people in the past saying they want a dog and we do all the checks and then they pull out, and in the meantime the dog has missed out on other fab homes and wasted our time. Once all checks are done you can then pay the remainder of the re-homing fee and collect your dog. If, for whatever reason, you fail any checks then we will refund you your £50 holding fee. After all checks are cleared we do expect you to collect your dog within 48 hours.
Please do not come and view dogs if you have holidays or busy work schedules as we won't hold the dogs for these.
Also WE CANNOT guarantee breed or age as these are RESCUE dogs and it is the closest guess we can get to with our vet's help. With regard to puppies we have no idea what they are crossed with or how big they will get as generally Mum and Dad are unknown. Also, puppies are very hard work; they wee, poo chew and teeth (often on our hands, kids, furniture or clothes!!) so please keep this in mind when looking as they are very cute to look at but people forget how much hard work a puppy is and how much time they need to become well adjusted dogs.
Our re-homing fee is from free on vets' bills for life to up to £200; generally the young pedigrees, pups and rare breeds are between £175-£200. People ask why is it £175-£200. Well that's because we do neutering vouchers for every single dog and every dog is vet checked and vaccinated by Natterjacks in Bournemouth. Also, our transport costs are £750 a week and we are generally paying our vets £1500 A WEEK; that's without food and all other extras and also we take many dogs that need operations, legs amputated, cruelty cases and also have over 10 dogs on vets' bills for life.

VERY SPECIAL HOME/FOSTER HOME NEEDED;
This is Harry and he is only 2-3 years old, he is amazing, clean in the house, very affectionate and will make someone just the best companion. We have noticed he bumps into things if moved so he has a degenerative disease where he is going blind it could be 6 months it could be a couple of years no one knows. Harry is a cocker cross who deserves a loving home or a foster home and we will pay all bills. Please help share Harry as he is only young and he will make someone their perfect pet
This is Carla ! She is a 3 year old springer spaniel , house trained and her recall is excellent . She will need lead work , she loves to fetch and brings it back and she knows basic commands . She is super affectionate and she is fine to be left for a few hours in the day and quiet at night
he adorable Storm. A big GSD over 5, loves people and other dogs. This boy is very thin under the lush coat. He very patiently allowed the groomers at Pets at Home to spend many hours sorting his filthy coat - his tail and back legs were a solid matt and had to be shaved but will grow back. He trots along beautifully on the lead. Storm will make a loyal companion for some lucky person

Just off the boat from Ireland ... So we have called her Grace after Grace O' malley the Irish pirate Queen ! A typical lurcher ... Calm, loving , a sofa surfer , will take food off the side given the chance . Seeks out children for a bit of TLC ... good with other dogs ( walks with many and meets new ones daily) Not cat tested but would expect her to chase. A smaller type lurcher ... Very demure ( until meal time when she seems to suck up/ vacuum her dinner) no food aggression, pulls on lead and is in cahoots with our terrier. Approx age 1-2 years of age ... No back ground history. Loves to get in the car but is very subdued on journey. Grace has absolutely no recall ... Have walked her off lead since she arrived with us ... Stays with you and keeps you in sight ... May run with the terrier and comes back when he does . Did consider that she may be deaf initially as no response to calling squeaking clapping whistling ... This has since improved but still does not come to you on request . Treat training is kinda helping and she has learn t to sit this week. To sum up.. A fab family dog but recall needs some work.
