My name is Max, I am a very big and VERY handsome German Shepherd Dog. Despite my size I have great manners on the lead and am easy to walk. I am 5 years old so we have lots of years left to become best friends and have some big adventures. I am ok with other dogs but can get a bit bouncy and excited. I would also be fine with older children (but I might accidentally squash a little one!) - I am super friendly and would be a great addition to any home.
Hi I am Cilla, a 9 year old medium sized Staffordshire girl. I love my walks and also enjoy cuddles and fuss from people. I am not good with other animals but would be a lovely companion for someone. I came a Bleakholt as a stray so not much is known about my background.
Hi there, I'm Charlie the 6 year old Staffie boy. I really don't like kennels and got very frightened when the fireworks went off this year, so maybe you could take me home and make me feel better?
I get very excited on my walks and try to grab my lead - this looks a bit scary but I am not being nasty, I just REALLY like to go for walks! I soon settle down with firm, calm handling. My mum in kennels has done some clicker training with me and says I am very clever.
I am not too keen on dogs or cats but have previously lived with older children. I am secretly quite a sensitive soul who desperately needs a kind person who is experienced with dogs to take me home and make me happy again.
Hello, I'm Zara a beautiful medium sized German Shepherd. I am 12 years old but you would never know it, I am still very active and healthy.

I am clean in my kennel and don't destroy my bedding.

I am only a baby and have such a great character, please consider me.
Hi I'm Marley the staffordshire bull terrier. I am 12 years old but really dont act my age, I still enjoy my walks and dont pull in my special harness. I would be best in a home with adults and no other dogs. I am pretty undemanding and would be ok if you needed to leave me for a few hours to go to work. I am not keen on other dogs but I am super with people and am a great partner in a game of fetch. Could I be the one for you?
Hello! I am Spike Patterdale (just so you dont confuse me with the other Spike that lives here) - I am 6 years old but act much younger. I am a friendly chappy who is nice to walk and ok with some other dogs. I would suit someone who has owned terriers before as I could be a handful for someone who was not used to their cheeky ways. I don't like to be left alone for too long so would need someone who could keep me company for most of the day. Could that be you?

HAWK HAS FOUND A NEW HOME BUT WE HAVE OTHER GREYHOUNDS AND LURCHERS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
Hi I'm Hawk, a graceful and stately greyhound. I am roughly 5 years old and came into rescue after my racing career was over. Dont worry though, I dont need lots of exercise and would much prefer to sofa surf than hike for miles every day. I am a gentle soul who is very easy to walk, they even use me to teach all the new walkers because I am so good. I am good with other dogs and enjoy going for walks with them. I would be any greyhound lovers dream but would ideally like a home with adults where I can relax and take life easy.
