WellingboroughDogWelfare

Wellingborough Dog Welfare, or Wellidog as we are more fondly known is a local charity in Grendon, Northamptonshire, and we are dedicated to making life easier for strays and unwanted dogs locally from surrounding areas. With so many abandoned and unwanted dogs entering kennels every day we are committed to finding loving homes for all of our dogs. We are a no-kill shelter who believe that second hand dogs make first class friends, and we work around the clock to raise funds to care for the dogs in our care while we search for their perfect forever home.

Rufus- crossbreed- 7 months old

Please think before applying. He will take a lot of training. We will not be taking calls at kennels please find details of how to apply at the bottom of the post

  • Crossbreed, large must already weigh about 30 kg. We were told shepherd x mastiff
  • Best as only dog, reactive
  • Children 12+ if savvy
  • Large breed experience
  • Home most of day

RUFUS- Not to be rehomed in rushden or near surrounding areas.

rufus is a 6/7month old crossbreed. He is supposed to be mastiff x shepherd. Please think before applying for him as he is hard work and is going to need a lot of input. He will be huge and is already so so strong he must weigh 30 kg already. He is very friendly but has not experienced the outside world and any noise people, anything his hackles are up and he is barking. He will need socialisation and this is absolutely crucial otherwise he will turn into a reactive dog. He is very boisterous right now, friendly but boiserous, and needs manners. He will need somebody who is home all day willing to put a lot of training in and commit to him. We do not want him returned because he is hard work! He will need to be an only dog as he needs one to one and is reactive to other dogs so needs work on this as well. Older children as he is so big and boisterous 12+. He loves to run around with a toy but thinks everything is a game right now. He will chew through leads so a chain lead will be needed, house training etc. We are looking for a home with experience with large breeds particularly mastiffs sorts etc. This boy with some training will make an amazing dog he just hasn’t had the input he should have had right now. This is a crucial time in his life. He is so so friendly and we don’t want him to turn the other way. He is a wonderful smiley dog and a typical big puppy. With the right home and somebody willing to train him he will be amazing. He loves to have fuss and his belly rubbed.

Rufus is a typical pupster they aren’t all cute and easy. If you are interested in Rufus please email wellidog@talktalk.net with:

Puppies are extremely hard work especially these little guy who are very nippy and hard nippy, house training, puppy training, they chew absolutely anything they can get their mouths on.

Buddy is a young terrier x he will not be big at all. Buddy.
Very sociable puppy. Loves playing with the bigger dogs. Is good with adults and children if they are experienced with a nippy puppy. He comes to his name really well. Is getting better with house training. Still has accidents but mostly on the puppy pads.
He is very nippy with his razor sharp puppy teeth but is very easily distracted with a toy. He loves his hard chewy bone and pully toys. He is a bright puppy and will be quite easy to train if you put the work and effort in. He will need an active home where he is kept stimulated and occupied to prevent him from chewing and destroying things. He loves to steal shoes and clothes if he can.
He sleeps in a crate with the door open and travels really well in his crate. He eats well. He settles by 10pm and is quiet in the night until around 7.30 – 8.00 in the morning. He needs a commited family who will continue his training and socialisation to ensure he gets the happy permanent home he deserves.

He could live with another dog but it must be neutered!!! Children 8+. We will NOT be taking phone calls about him at the kennels you need to email wellidog@talktalk.net with:

Little Lola is a 1 1/2 year old patterdale. We are looking for a terrier savvy home for her with no other pets! She is a little frightened at kennels and can react if she feels backed in more so with men. She is NOT a nasty girl at all this is from fear she will be different in a home. She is absolutely fantastic with me I can do anything with her and she is very clingy with me. She loves to sit on your lap and have a cuddle. She isn’t too fussed by toys or treats at the moment. She could live with savvy children 10+ but people would need to understand to let her go to them, just ignore her and she will come over in her own time. Give her ten minutes to sniff you out and she will slowly make her way over to your wagging her tail and she loves to give kisses. She is much more nervous of men. She is a bit zig zag on the lead at the moment and will bark at other dogs on the lead. She is clean in her kennel and is on a hypoallergenic diet. We would like a home for her where she isn’t left long periods of time. A lovely girl that in the right home will make an amazing companion.

GAVIN – 9 years old – Staffy

  • No other dogs!
  • Children 12+
  • Nearly nine
  • No cats!

Gavin is a nine year old staffy looking for his forever home. He is a sweety with people and his tail is always going but he is not good with other dogs at all! He was found straying so we have no background in this beautiful boy, he loves being out and about going for walks and having a good sniff around. He loves everybody and will jump up to say hello. Due to him being a stray he will need a home with no children under 12. A home with no other pets! He might be nine but everybody that meets him thinks he is about two, but he isn’t too boisterous at all. The vets thought he was one today he just wouldn’t sit still. He is ok travelling in the car, a little noisy to start with but will settle. A home is needed where there are no other dogs either side. When he sees a dog he will pull and start barking like a seal. He will listen, he loves people. He is a bit noisy but does settle it’s only when a dog barks or someone walks past he starts barking. A wonderful boy that needs a loving home to go with his personality. He does have quite sore skin on his undercarriage which the vets have advised to monitor and with regular baths hopefully this will get better. His skin has got a lot better 😁.It may turn out to be allergies. He is ok in the bath bless him as well. A super friendly boy with his humans 🥰 he is such a happy little dude.

RUBEN- whippet x- 12 years old

RUBEN HAS BEEN ADOPTED 🙂

  • Only dog, will growl at others
  • No cats.
  • Older children
  • Whippet x staff
  • Home needed: retirement home but still active.

Beautiful little Ruben is looking for a retirement home. He is a twelve year old whippet x staff, he is a dinky little boy. He may be twelve but he does act about two he is still active and is very bouncy at people to say hello. Being an older dog he does have cataracts and a few little skin tags and bumps. Ruben would rather ignore other dogs, whether that’s because with the cataracts they aren’t clear to him. Although he is not great with dogs on the lead and will growl. So with this in mind and his age we think he would need to be the only dog. Being small he isn’t too bad pulling wise on the lead. Please don’t let his age put you off as he is still very full of life and beans, apart from his grey face you wouldn’t think he was twelve the way he acts. No cats! Older children over 14+ if dog savvy. He can bark at men sometimes as he was previously abused by men. He isn’t keen on loud heavy items. He is a little pocket rocket 5 year old in a twelve year old body. Ruben is just looking for a retirement home that can give him some love and tlc for how ever many years he has left. He travels really well in the car. He is crate trained and is ok being left. He loves his food and treats but he is a snatcher it’s like he has never had food before the way he takes treats and food. He loves to play ball and is super quick, really is a pocket rocket, he will bark at you if you don’t throw it quick enough 😂 he is a bit snatchy with a ball as well so can do with a little training. He would have been a good little flyball dog when he was younger! He is very responsive to his name. A really sweet dog that needs a quiet retirement home that will take him for walks as he does love this and play ball with him 🥰 he is still an active boy always bouncing 😂

IF YOU THINK RUBEN IS THE DOG FOR YOU PLEASE CALL THE KENNELS AND REGISTER YOUR INTEREST ON 07561129207.

She is ball mad and will just play ball all day until she drops. She isn’t too bad with other dogs and would rather ignore, however we believe she will need to be an only dog. No cats. Isla could live with sensible children 8+. She is just wonderful she isn’t boisterous, doesn’t really jump up. She will sit and give paw, drop the ball at your feet for it to be thrown again. Obviously anybody that adopts her needs to understand she is possibly two guarding breeds, but she is wonderful. She gets so excited when she sees us in the morning, loves her walks. She is a strong girl but we are working on her walking and she is doing amazingly. She is ok to be left for a couple of hours. She isn’t overly treat motivated, she just wants a ball.

  • Breed: Tyson is a staffy, Tilly a staff x boxer
  • Age: both six years old
  • No other dogs!
  • No cats!
  • Kids 12+

**** looking for a home together ****

Tilly and Tyson are 6 year old staffies, Tilly is a staffy x boxer. They are both absolutely nutters and whoever adopts these two will need to be able to keep up with their energy. They are super friendly but very boisterous especially Tyson. Tilly is a bit more calmer and gentler. They need to be the only two dogs in the home and on walks aren’t good with other dogs and will bark at dogs they see on walks so they will need a strong handler to be able to control them. They have been having training and in twenty minutes happily walked to heal past another dog. No cats! No young children as together they are very boisterous, children 14+. Tyson is super treat motivated and loves a ball whereas Tilly likes to have belly rubs and a bit more cuddles. Tyson is very affectionate and loves to try and lick you to death. We do not want to split these two as they seem quite bonded and will sleep in the same bed. They need an active home and a garden is a must! So that they can let all of their energy out. They love their walks and they can be barkers if they want to be or they want something 😂. When they first went in the van they were a little distressed (could have been because they were separate) but they soon settled down. They are such a friendly pair and every morning is greeted with such wonderful hellos and cuddles and fuss. Tyson is better on the lead than Tilly she is very strong. They have been very clean in their kennel so far. They are just wonderful nutters 😂🥰

  • Breed: staff x collie, solid built boy
  • Needs to be the only dog.
  • No cats!
  • Kids 8+

This dog is just amazing…. So Toffee is a wonderful boy who is seven years old. He is a staff x collie. He is just so friendly with everybody he meets and just wants fuss.

In the kennels he has said hello to a little female dog but he doesn’t like male dogs after a few incidents in his past. He is just no trouble at all and really will make somebody a wonderful companion. Whoever adopts toffee will have to offer plenty of belly rubs as he loves this. He loves to chase a ball but doesn’t know what to do once he has got to it 😂😂.

He is healthy and travels really really well in the car, although he seems to know when he has arrived at his destination as he gets up and wants to get out 😂. He is just so gentle in every way even takin his treats. He is a bit of a talker and can be a bit anxious but I think once he has had his settling in period this will calm.

  • No cats!
  • Home needed: experienced, rural and willing to put a lot of training in to his reactiveness

PLEASE READ THE WRITE UP BEFORE APPLYING

Dexter needs a super special home and is not for the faint hearted or inexperienced! He is wonderful with me and Lynn but can be very reactive to other people on the lead. Dexter needs a super special home either in the countryside with a lot of land or in a quiet area where there are not loads of busy roads, vehicles etc. Now with me he is the most wonderful dog going and he is very very loyal! He greets you like you have been away for years however he attaches to one person very easily and can be a little bit guardy of them. He absolutely loves a ball and will play all day no matter what the weather. He loves his fuss and likes to rub against you being all silly and is super affectionate. But with his reactiveness caution is needed and definitely a trainer is needed to help this boy. He needs a home where there are no other pets. Definitely no children or visiting children. An adult only household but a quiet household with not too many people there. We know this is asking a lot but we know somebody like there is out there for this boy. He will repay you with plenty of love and fetch 😂 he just sticks to me like glue and the longer he is with us he will only get worse and increase his issues and this is not what we want! He is a nine year old Labrador x and a big boy who is super strong on the lead. He is reactive to people, cars, dogs on a walk so also needs a strong handler. He needs a home who is not afraid to put in some boundaries with him as he will need these for sure. We are in the process of muzzle training him. He is getting used to walking on a figure of eight lead and is progressing but needs somebody who will carry this on! I just adore this boy so much and yes he has quite a lot of issues but with his people he is wonderful 🥰
Dexter needs a home in the countryside that maybe has a lot of land or isn’t busy to help manage his anxiety on walks…. And experienced owners willing to have a trainer onboard.
He is a wonderful dog and we love him to pieces

SAFFIRE – LURCHER X GSD – 4 1/2 years old

SAFFIRE HAS BEEN ADOPTED 😁

  • Age: four and a half
  • Breed: lurcher x German shepherd, smaller than your typical lurcher
  • Sex: pretty little girly
  • Needs to be the only pet, no cats!
  • No young children, we would consider 16+ IF the child is extremely dog savvy
  • Home needed: a lot of time and patience, experience ideally with extremely nervous dogs. Not to be left long hours

This girl has come a long way since being with us but she is so ready to find that forever home now, yes she is still nervous but she has come so far. From grumbling at us at the back of the kennel to now coming to the front wagging her tail and walking into the lead herself 🥰 we are proud of her!! She is going to ideally but not essentially need an experienced home with nervous dogs. Whoever adopts this girl MUST let her go to them and this could take days but it could take a month. Any little noise spooks her and she will bolt. Give her the time and patience and she will come around for sure, now she will come over to us and lean into us for fuss with her tail wagging, she is a happy girly now. All in her own time. Saffire is beautiful and I can see she wants to do things but just doesn’t know how. I know in the right home who will let her do things in her own time she will thrive and you will see a different dog a few months in 🥰 she is four and a half, she is a GSD x lurcher but she is much smaller than your typical lurcher. She is much better on the lead now and she likes her walks she will be out in front now not behind you. She will need to be the only pet (she will ignore dogs on walks) and someone who is home most of the day now and after COVID. No young children but we would consider 16+ if very dog savvy and know to let her come to them and if she needs space to give it to her 🙂 to see her tail wagging at me now daily in the mornings when I arrive just gives me a big smile on my face. Whoever is interested in adopting Saffire will need to visit regularly to get her used to them before she will be able to go home. She likes her meals but isn’t too keen on treats at the moment. A wonderful girl even through her terrified eyes you can see a shining light waiting to come out 🥰😍 this girl really deserves and is ready for her forever home now. She is much happier, still frightened, but in a home environment she will thrive for sure 🙏🏼🤞🏼

  • Age: coming up to five
  • Sex: handsome boy
  • Good with dogs but very boisterous
  • Has previously lived with cat
  • Children 13+ if dog savvy
  • Home needed: patient and willing to put in training, home a lot! Active home

Bailey is a wonderful dog but he hasn’t had much training as he is very boisterous and likes to jump up. He will happily sit but not for long before he is up. He is an extremely active boy that needs to be going for long walks daily. He loves a ball and toys. He is very trainable but will just need the patience in doing so. He is very boisterous with other dogs so if he was to live with another would need one that would tolerate that. He is a very active boy that doesn’t sit still long whether this is running about or throwing himself to the floor for a belly rub. He can mouth a bit, just an excitable young boy. Travels well in the car and is super clean in the kennels. He will need someone who is around most of the time as he likes to bark when he is left and just loves the company of people

OTIS- lurcher x Dalmatian – 7 months old

OTIS HAS BEEN ADOPTED 🙂

How to apply:
We will not be taking calls about Otis at the kennels so please do not ring!! We ask you to email us at wellidog@talktalk.net;
Your name and why you think you could offer Otis the best home
Past experience of owning dogs!
Children, pets, how long he would be left for now and after COVID!
Location

We will then go through applications and only contact those who we think are suitable as we are bound to be inundated and just cannot respond to everybody!

  • Breed: lurcher x Dalmatian
  • Age: 7 months old
  • Sex: handsome young man
  • Good with other dogs
  • No cats!
  • Children 10+
  • Home needed: committed to training now and for the next fifteen years. Active home needed!

So the wonderful Otis 🥰😍 he is a happy cheeky chap but still naughty which is to be expected with his age. He is a seven month old lurcher x Dalmatian, now yes he is cute but please look past the cuteness and think of the breeds he is (prey drive etc). He is going to be a big boy so please also think about his size. We want Otis to go to an amazing home that will commit to his training and exercise needs and general needs for the next 15 years. He will need a lot of commitment and will test patience but he is a puppy, he is likely to need house training, chewing is likely, he is a bit collar shy at present. Otis is a loveable boy who loves everybody and he actually likes to smile when he meets people. He is all legs at the moment with a lot of growing to do. He loves to play with a toy and will happily amuse himself with one. He is going to need a super active home, maybe not so much now with his age and bones but when he gets older. He needs recall training as he is naughty and comes back to you only to run off and can get a little mouthy. He needs training especially manners training as he jumps up a lot. He is very food motivated so this will help a lot with his training. Puppies aren’t easy so will need patience and commitment. He gets travel sick at present. He is good with other dogs but is very boisterous so if he is to live with another dog he would need one as boisterous and a younger dog who would tolerate him. No cats!!!! He could live with children 10+ if dog savvy. Otis is not just a cute puppy who can get away with what he likes because he is cute otherwise he will become a difficult untrained dog. In the right hands this dog will be absolutely amazing, he is super clever and so willing to learn. He picks things up very quickly but still has that silly puppy brain. He is strong on the lead and is a bit all over the place on the lead. Otis is currently undergoing training to improve his jumping up and he is getting there 😍😁😁. We will give preference to those who have had dalmatians or lurcher or high energy breeds before. Otis will also need someone who is home all the time to continue his training and work his time up so he is able to be left ok. He is such a cutie with his little wire haired face and feet. He can get overexcited and mouth but again this is what any puppy would do he just needs the patience and training to bring this out of him. He is such a loving dog and would make somebody an amazing companion. A dog that is super clever. He loves being outside and going for walks. His basic training isn’t too bad, he will sit, lie down, give paw he will just need a home that when he gets to his teenage stage they will push through it 😁 one amazing dog right there with AMAZING potential. He is very photogenic and loves his picture being taken.

TOFFEE – chihuahua x – around 3-5 years old

TOFFEE HAS BEEN ADOPTED 🙂

  • Sex: little boy
  • Age: roughly between 3-5 years old.
  • Breed: we believe a chihuahua x jack russell
  • no other dogs!
  • No cats
  • Children 15+ if very dog savvy
  • Home needed: patient and understanding as he will take time to get used to home life!

Beautiful little toffee has had a hard life up until now with no socialisation at all. He has lived outside in a shed most of his life with no human interaction. He was very scared when he came to us but is now a happy little chap who loves to be with people and have cuddles. We believe he is between 3-5 years old, he is very small likely to be a chihuahua x jack Russell. He is a little pocket rocket and can mouth quite a bit when he is excited so this will need training out of him. He is very very food motivated so this would help with any training. He is going to need a home that has a lot of time and patience as he won’t get things straight away and might be frightened of certain things. He will need house training, this is the reason he was previously kept in a shed! He is a bundle of fun and loves to snuggle up and have cuddles and give kisses, and if you have food on you, well that’s just a bonus. He is not good with other dogs so he will need a home that will accept this and he will get quite focused on them, bark and pull to get towards them. Unfortunately this is probably due to him being shut away and frustrated. He loves to have zoomies so would love a garden to run around in 🥰 he needs a patient home that is willing to put in whatever training he will need. He will certainly give so much love back to whoever adopts him! A home where he will be the only pet and no children (children 15+ who are extremely dog savvy). He is not keen on his nails being cut and can snap out. No cats for this boy and someone home a lot, terrier experience will be preferred. He can freeze on the lead sometimes but with gentle encouragement he will walk on. This boy has come on so far since arriving with us he just needs a new home to take him even further 🥰😍 please ring the kennels if interested and register your interest and we will then go through all the applications 🙂 he will need to adjust to home life so whoever adopts him needs to be prepared for chewing, toileting etc. He just loves his people and his cuddles and will happily sit next to you for ages having cuddles. He is a dog on springer sometimes 😂

IF YOU THINK TOFFEE IS THE DOG FOR YOU PLEASE CONTACT THE KENNELS ON 07561129207 to register your interest

BELINDA- 11 1/2 years old – collie x springer spaniel

BELINDA HAS BEEN ADOPTED

  • Age: coming up to twelve (spring chicken at heart)
  • Breed: collie x springer
  • Sex: pretty lady
  • Kids 10+, no visiting kids under ten
  • No other dogs or cats!

Beautiful Belinda is looking for her forever retirement home. Such a wonderful cuddly girl who loves people. She is coming up to twelve and doesn’t deserve to be in kennels at all at her age, especially when she is such a loving cuddly girl and a happy girl. She needs to be the only dog and pet in the home and will need a home with children 10+ and no visiting children under ten. She is very overweight at the moment and she has a little bit of stiffness in her legs but that is to be expected at her age. Other than that she is very healthy having just had a vet check. She loves her food and treats and will happily just snuggle on a sofa with somebody. She loves her walks but with her age won’t be able to go too far. She doesn’t like getting in the car at present. She thinks she is a spring chicken at heart. She is a collie x springer spaniel. If anybody could offer this wonderful older girly a home we and Belinda would be forever grateful as we don’t want her spending longer than she has to in kennels 🥰😍

IF YOU CAN OFFER BELINDA A HOME PLEASE CONTACT THE KENNELS ON 07561129207

SUNRISE aka SUNNY – greyhound – 4 years old

SUNNY HAS BEEN ADOPTED 🙂

  • Sex: young lady
  • Age: four years old
  • Breed: greyhound
  • No cats or small furries
  • Could possibly live with a male dog around her size
  • Children 15+

Sunrise aka sunny is a beautiful four year old greyhound. She can be a bit boisterous when she first meets you as she just loves absolutely everybody and likes to jump up to say hello. All she wants is cuddles. She was kennelled previously with our lenny loo so I think he has taught her bad habits. She just loves being around people. Again being a greyhound she does have prey drive especially small furries so will need a home with no cats or small furries. She could live with children 10+. She walks pretty well on the lead. She could possibly live with another male sighthound. Sunny would like a home where she isn’t left too long and she can just lounge about with her new owners like greyhounds do. She loves to have zoomies so will need a garden. Greyhounds are such loving pets and sunny is very cuddly 🥰🥰 she loves her treaties and to lounge about in her bed. She is microchipped, due to be spayed this week and vaccinated.

IF YOU THINK SUNNY IS THE DOG FOR YOU PLEASE CALL OUR KENNELS ON 07561129207

JACK – jack Russell x – 8 years old

JACK HAS BEEN ADOPTED

  • Age: almost eight
  • Breed: jack Russell x Manchester terrier
  • Sex: chunky little boy
  • Only dog! Friendly with others outside
  • No cats!
  • Children 8+
  • Home needed: tolerant, he barks a lot. Won’t leave him long periods.

Jack is such a wonderful loving young (in his eyes) man. He loves everybody he meets and his tail is always going. He loves cuddles and will happily sit beside you chilling after he has had his sniff. We believe he would be best as an only dog, but has shown no aggression out of the home towards dogs. He might not cope if a dog came running up to him in his face, he doesn’t know how to act. He loves to beg especially if he wants something 😂. Jack being a terrier is rather noisy and likes to bark at anything so will need a tolerant home where this doesn’t bother them. He pulls on the lead but is only a small dog. Such a wonderful dog he is 🥰

IF YOU THINK JACK IS THE DOG FOR YOU PLEASE RING THE KENNELS ON 07561129207 TO REGISTER INTEREST

Cleo is such a loving young girl that just loves everybody that she meets. She is happy girl who also loves to have zoomies so will need a garden.

A wonderful girl that will make a wonderful companion. She will happily chill most the day, loves her food. She can bark at you if you are ignoring her or she wants to play 😂
