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.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OTIS PLEASE EMAIL YOUR APPLICATION TO wellidog@talktalk.net with the above information

TOFFEE – chihuahua x – around 3-5 years old

  • 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 RESERVED 🙂🙂

  • 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

  • Sex: young lady
  • Age: four years old
  • Breed: greyhound
  • No cats or small furries
  • Could possibly live with a male sighthound
  • 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 RESERVED AND SHOULD BE HEADING OFF TO HIS NEW HOME SOON 🙂

  • 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. She isn’t too interested in toys at the moment but that will come with time. She walks well on the lead until she sees a squirrel and then she does pull. She has a very high prey and chase drive. 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 😂

  • Breed: greyhound
  • Sex: handsome boy (big boy)
  • Age: four years old
  • Best as an only dog
  • No cats or small furries!
  • No children!

Lenny is such a happy sweet boy who is so funny as well. He is a big boy but walks ever so well on the lead. He loves to run around our enclosure with a squeaky toy in his mouth like a loony. He just loves everybody he meets and his tail can’t go quick enough. He likes to try and climb on you for fuss (he doesn’t realise his size). He just loves his cuddles. He will jump up and is a tall boy when he does so, he just likes to let everybody know how friendly he is. Lenny is a retired racer so no small furries or cats as he has a high prey drive. He can be a little squealy so we would like a home for Lenny that won’t leave him for long periods (he can be left for around three hours). He is a gentle giant really that will make an amazing companion. He just loves being around people 😍😍 Lenny is also a typical greyhound and likes his own space. So if he is lying down whether awake or asleep he likes his own space and you need to let him come to you for fuss. He needs boundaries put in place

Enzo- 1 1/2 year old- staff x

ENZO WILL BE HEADING OFF TO HIS NEW HOME SOON 🤞🏼

Enzo at a glance:

  • Age: one year old
  • Breed: staff x American bulldog (he is a big strong boy)
  • Sex: handsome young man
  • No other dogs!
  • No children or visiting children!
  • No cats or small furries
  • Has multi joint issues so this will restrict him a lot but is manageable!
  • Home needed: experienced, no children, people that will love him and not necessarily want to take him for long walks as with his condition he can’t. No children no other pets, calm and chilled home

We are looking for very special people that are willing to offer a home to our special boy who has quite a few medical problems. Enzo has multi joint disease so basically his joints aren’t good at all. You wouldn’t think so the way he bounces around. BUT he will need a home where he either isn’t walked and has a decent garden or is just walked for say 20 mins max on the lead as we can’t stress how important it is to keep his exercise reduced. The more exercise he has the more his joints will be damaged so as much as it sounds harsh it’s for his own good and vets advice. He can be a bit mouthy and nippy when excited so he will need an experienced home. We love this boy to bits and we want to find him a special home so he doesn’t have to sit in kennels on his own during the winter as this won’t help his joints. He is a lovely boy and does love his cuddles and especially his treats and food. He needs training and isn’t good with other dogs he is very strong. However we would consider due to his condition a home where he could just enjoy the garden as we so want him in a home. He is currently on joint medication which we can supply if anybody would be kind enough to take this boy on.

IF YOU THINK ENZO IS THE DOG FOR YOU WHY NOT COME AND MEET HIM? OR FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT US ON 07561129207
