If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

05-12-2017 Smartie is a 3 yr old male crossbreed who has sadly been returned  He is a lovely, VERT high energy and active dog and his owners could not give him the exercise and training he needs. Smartie needs a home without children only because he is so over-enthusiastic with everything they would find him too much!  He is very vocal for playing, noises and welcoming.  He pulls on the lead in excitement so this needs to be worked on. Smartie is quite good at traveling in the car and being left. He is good with other dogs if introduced properly and loves cuddles.  He likes to be around you when in the home and a good game of tug of war. He will make a lovely pet for the right family, would suit a home with another dog for company. He is great and a real character.

Smartie is the happiest, most affectionate, playful chap that you could wish to meet. He is 95% kennel clean during the day, he either goes onto the play yard or out for a walk right after his dinner and will do his business straight away. He knows a few commands and is very intelligent - so if his new home wanted to do agility or flyball etc with him, then I feel he would really enjoy. Saying that though, it isn't a necessity as I feel he would be just as happy going on long walks and playing with some dog friends. Smartie could be an only dog in the right circumstances, but he does love having the company of his kennel mate, Spice.
I don't feel that Smartie should be homed with any kids under 14 years old, and any kids over should be dog savvy. This is due to his bounciness and the fact that he does like to mouth, only out of play, but it would be too much for young children. He will require a bit of training to stop his mouthing and to make him the wonderful family member that I just  know he wants to be. If you feel like you are the perfect fit for Smartie then please fill in an application form, so we can get this lovely boy out of kennels.

Meet Smartie he's such a happy individual and FULL of beans, he loves playing and pretty much anything that involves ENERGY. Smartie has been here about a month now after being returned due to ownwers not being able to meet his energy levels. Smartie would make a lovely pet in a very active home and would be a bonus if there was another dog for him but he could possibly be an only as well. Smartie also walks on a lead but pulls a bit so may need further training but he also sits when asked.

This beautiful little boy is still waiting in kennels and I really can not figure out why. He gets on well with his kennel mates and since his old kennel friend - Spice - got adopted, he now has 4 new female dogs to live with. Safe to say he loves all of the attention from the ladies. He is such a smart little cookie and really lives up to his nickname, Smartie Pants. He knows quite a few commands and loves treats so will be very easy to train in general. Smartie is too good for kennels, he's more than ready for his forever home and everyday I just hope that that will be the day someone comes to take him to the life he deserves. I can not express the pure love that this dog has in his heart, the look that he gives me whenever I come to see him says it all to be honest. If you are looking for a smart, happy, waggy and friendly boy who will make you laugh until you cry. Then this is the boy for you.

Smartie is still looking for his forever home and it just doesn't make sense to me. He is everything you could want in a dog, he is affectionate, cuddly, playful, clever, active and just generally gorgeous. He goes on walks with numerous other dogs that he isn't kennelled with and gets on fine with them, although he isn't too keen on all other males. He could go with older children as long as they are dog savvy or would happily go to an adult only home too. Smartie is beautiful, he is my boy and he knows it. We have a very special bond which although it will break my heart when I am no longer a part of his life, it'll also make me incredibly happy, to see him leaving kennels to start the life that he so desperately needs and deserves.
Everytime we see each other it's like he can't contain his excitement and just gives me the most wonderful greeting, and I have to say that the person who gets to come home to that every day will be the luckiest person on the planet. He will never stop giving you love, he will never stop appreciating your time and attention.
If you want a bright bundle of fun and love in your life then don't hesitate to put an application form in.
It is genuinely such a pleasure looking after this boy in kennels, but he deserves so much more. He deserves someone who will always be there for him and if any issues do arise (which let's be honest, dogs are not machines so sometimes there are things that need to be worked through), they will stick with him and not just give up on him like others have in the past.
I love him with all of my heart and I know that if someone just gives him a chance then they will too.

Every single day Smartie makes me fall more and more in love with him. He shows another side to his gorgeous personality that makes you laugh hysterically or hug him a little tighter. He is one incredible boy who has got his very own fan club at the centre, which I think I can safely say, I am the founder of. He has been in my car, Marks van, I take him in the roundpen, sandschools, out for walks and sometimes we just chill in the yard. He is getting so good at passing dogs whilst out, aswell as going on walks with dogs he has never met before. He is even starting to walk past males without batting an eye. 

Which is why I can not see how he is still waiting for someone to come and fall in love with him. If I could, I would take this boy home right now, but heartbreakingly I can't as we already have 8 in my house. 
There are actually no words for the joy that Smarts brings to everyone who actually knows him and spends time with him. 
He deserves people who will never let him doubt just how wonderful he is, because he is one of the rarest gems who will forever own a piece of my heart. 
So if you feel this is the perfect boy for you then don't hesitate to come meet him, I can guarantee he'll steal your heart too.

Smartie is officially our longest serving resident of many tears. He’s been with us since October excepting for one brief stint in a foster home. There is absolutely no reason why this sweet little fellow should still be with us, he’s getting over looked time and again and I find it hard to believe that there’s no one out there who can find it in in their heart to love this very lovable dog. 

We are rehoming dogs on a daily basis who are older, less pretty and have far more issues than our little Smartie, who is outgoing and friendly, walks on a lead, sits for treats, is a very pretty little man and quite a spring chicken at only 4 years old. 

Some people say that he’s not a desirable breed, well what nonsense that is, a springer spaniel crossed with anything is a winner in my book. And as for the so called ‘desirable’ breeds? Smartie is a picture of health compared with some of the pugs, bulldogs, frenchies and bichons that we see with all their attendant medical issues. 

Smartie is a healthy, lively, affectionate adorable little bundle of fun and it’s ridiculous that he has gone so long without a home. 

He has had some behavioural issues in the past and in his foster home but we currently have no problems with him here where he has a kennel mate he loves and no issues with food or toys or people. In fact he is a firm favourite with all the staff and regularly goes out walking with members of the public. 

If you are looking to adopt a dog please please please take a minute to consider Smartie, he’s in need of rescuing as much if not more than any of our others. He needs an active home with experienced dog owners and preferably no children as he can be boisterous. He would love life as  an only dog but equally does get on well with his kennel mate so we could consider homing him with the right other dog. 

If you’re unsure or think there’s any chance at all that he could be the one for you please come down and meet him and let him bounce and lick and wag his way into your heart.
