Sam

Rottweiler cross Sam came into our care when he broke his leg in an accident and his owners couldn’t take care of him. The one-year-old spent a few months recovering and is now looking for a lovely new home. He was quite traumatised when he first arrived and was terrified of being handled but he’s now gaining confidence and he’s learned to be very sociable with people and other dogs. He absolutely loves to play football and has lots of energy so he’d like a fun, active home where he’ll go on lots of adventures.

Molly and Toffee

Ten-year-old crossbreed Molly and nine-year-old Jack Russell terrier Toffee have lots of energy and are looking for an adult-only home together. Molly is in good health and Toffee has epilepsy which requires medication. Poor Molly can be a little unsure around new people so is hoping for a calm, patient owner who can take things slow. She loves to play ball and would like a secure garden to play in. Toffee loves to be with you (preferably on your lap!) and adores cuddles and fuss but does, therefore, find it difficult being left home alone.

Cody

One-year-old terrier cross Cody is a sweet boy who is looking for experienced adopters who would be confident to continue with his training and behaviour work. He can be reactive around unfamiliar people, dogs and vehicles but has been doing well with training. He is happy on the lead and wearing his muzzle when he’s out in public. He’d like a quiet, rural home where he can come out of his shell. When he does, he’s very affectionate and playful. He wags his whole body with excitement and is incredibly intelligent, picking up new things very quickly!
