Dan is a gentle 2 year old black and white ex farm dog. He is timid but friendly when he gets to know you and then loves to give you a hug. We know from previous experience that these farm collies usually come out of their shells once they are settled into their new homes and have a steady routine and regular exercise. Dan could live with another calm dog. We think a quiet adult only home would be best for him. A household with older calm children would be considered.
We are looking for a home for Winnie with a terrier-experienced owner where she will definitely need to be the only pet. Winnie would be great in a family environment but we think she’d be best suited to a home with older children only. Winnie has been so badly mistreated in her previous life. She’s such a great little character and she now deserves a very special home. Winnie had to have an operation to rebuild her jaw. We can’t show you all her injuries as they are too horrible. Winnie had her operation on 10 December and is recovering well. She is currently being fostered and is still looking for a special permanent home.
****Bailey is being rehomed under our Elderly Animal Rehoming Scheme (EARS) which offers financial support with vets’ fees.****
Bailey might be twelve years old but there is certainly a lot of life left in him! Bailey is such a happy little chap and he’s a firm favourite with the staff at the kennels. He loves to have ‘office-time’ where he gets a fuss and a cuddle – and treats, of course. Bailey trots along very nicely on the lead, and does a very cute ‘sit’ and ‘paw’. This little guy has so much love and affection to give. We are recommending that Bailey be the only dog in an adult only home, although we may consider a home for him with older children.
Sprite may be a big dog but he’s also a big softie! Sprite is two years old and came to us recently with his friend Pixie. Both dogs lived together in the same home, and although they shared a kennel to start with, they now have their own space. Sprite responds very well to treats and praise and is a very friendly guy. Both dogs previously shared a home with children and cats but it may be that Sprite would prefer a quieter life now, and might like to be the only pet in an adult only household, or one with older children.
Sprite weighs 33kg.
Handsome Max came to us recently with his friend Mara. He is seven years old. Max is an intelligent boy who knows some of his basic commands and is very eager to please and learn especially when
treats are involved. We are recommending that Max be rehomed in an adult only home.
Pretty Mara is eight years old. She’s an affectionate and friendly girl who loves people. Mara has previously lived with children, another husky and cats. She was as good as gold this week when she was examined by our vet, she is happy to be groomed and her previous owner has told us that she is fine when she’s travelling. Because of her size, we are recommending a home for Mara with older children only.
******SPECIAL APPEAL***** Trevor has been with us for some time now and we’d love him to find his new home soon.
Lively Trevor is two years old and a dog with a great personality. He’s full of energy, always on the go and he just loves being with his human friends, especially when he’s allowed to come up to the office and sprawl on the sofa! Trevor is just a big softie; he’s affectionate, loyal and always eager to please. He has previously lived with a youngster and two other dogs, but because of his bounciness, we are recommending a home for him with older children where he will be the only pet.
Our national website rspca.org.uk has more photos of Trevor and a video of him having fun in our exercise area with one of our volunteers. Trevor weighs 24.5 kg Please have a look!
****SPECIAL APPEAL**** Friendly, affectionate and eager to please, five-year-old Rosie is great company and a lovely girl to be around. She is always in a happy mood and enjoys going out for walks and playing with her toys in the exercise area. Rosie will come to you when called and already knows the commands ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘paw’, but she would certainly benefit from some further training where she can continue to work on her basic commands and leadwork, and learn to socialize with other dogs. Rosie has never lived with other pets but she has lived with children over the age of twelve. As she is quite a ‘bouncy’ dog we wouldn’t recommend a home with children younger than that age. She has spent her second Christmas in kennels and doesn’t deserve to have been with us that long.Rosie weighs 23kg.
Sweet and gentle Kassie is two years old. She is an ex farm collie and although she is rather timid at the moment, we know from previous experience that these farm collies usually come out of their shells once they are settled into their new homes and have a steady routine and regular exercise.
Kassie needs to go to a home which already has a dog as she will benefit from having another dog to learn from and give her confidence.
Kassie is a very clever and intelligent dog and needs an experienced, active and patient owner who has the time to spend with her to help her reach her full potential.
We have advised an adult only household for Kassie as we think that a quiet home would be best for her. A household with older children might be considered.
