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.

21-02-2021 Keel is a very handsome hound who has come to us to find a loving home. He is worried to find himself here and relies on other dogs to give him some confidence. Keel doesnt know how to walk on a lead yet and has never needed to know anything about housetraining, sitting for treats... in fact he will never have been given a treat in his whole life! 
Keel will need a kind resident dog in his new home to help him settle and learn home skills, preferably around his size and not too much bigger than him as he can be a little scared by large dogs. He is going to an adult only home with someone special to see his potential and help him transform into a happy boy! He can't be homed with cats or small furries and needs a minimum 6ft fencing.

Keel is a beautiful, quirky little boy. Since arriving at the rescue he has come on dramatically in terms of confidence, he has begun walking on a lead, he socialises and shares well with the other dogs and despite still having some nerves he really does have an affectionate side which is starting to show itself. The crucial thing with Keel is the security of the garden in his new home, we have recently discovered that he is a rather clever lad and he can actually climb the type of fencing we have here for our yards, so he now has to be supervised whilst outside here. His new garden will need to be fully enclosed with 6ft fencing/walls and ideally he would have a long line attached to him during his settling period as he can certainly jump high when he wants to!!
Keel has shared his kennels well with Cocker/Beagle sized females and his ideal companion would be another female dog or two, as he is still lacking slightly in the confidence department I do believe he still needs another dog at this point in time, but this is definitely subject to change if he continues his vast rate of improvement with people. Keel is so full of character, he'll no doubt be a super fun companion, however he'll probably lean more on the active side once he fully learns to trust, so his future walking requirements do need to be taken into consideration too.

Keel is such a sweet boy he's really starting to show his little character. Although keel can still be a little scared of things it doesn't stop him from wanting to be around people he comes for a fuss and for treats. His house training is almost 100% and he loves his walks, he's also really good when travelling in the car.
Keel needs to be rehomed with another dog as we think it helps him more with his confidence and he also likes to cuddle up with another dog every now and then.
Keel gets on great with all our dogs that very in size. We recommend that he's not rehomed somewhere with cats as his prey instincts kick in when they run past him also at the moment he does suffer with being left which were working on and he also likes to have access to a cage as he sees this as a safe zone when he feels overwhelmed.

Keel has been in foster with us for a while now and although he can be a little timid at times he has really come on. He walks well on a lead and his house training is really good. He loves a treat and also likes a fuss but on his terms. We think Keel would benefit from another confident dog in his new home to help him really blossom. Keel is such a lovely lad who will be a lovely dog for some lucky person.

Keel is such a wonderful dog when you get to know him. He's come on so far from that scared little boy we first picked up. Keel is now happy to meet people when we are out and about and he's also found that puppy side of himself and started to play with other dogs and toys which he wouldn't do before. Keel just loves going out for walks and he also loves being in the car with you. He still has his little quirks but he's such a great little dog who deserves his forever home.

Keel is just a lovely lad to have in foster, he's really come on a treat. He now just loves to lie next to you on the sofa and have a fuss. Keel is really good when he's out, he walks well on the lead and is friendly with other dogs. Keel loves going out in the car with you loves his treats and loves being around you. His house training is spot on. Keel needs to go to a cat free house as his chase instinct is quite high.

25-04-22 UPDATE

Keel just keeps coming on better and better.  He's now is left with our other dogs while were out shopping and although he will bark when you leave him he soon settles down. Keel is just a dog who loves being with you he is fantastic while he's in the car and when he's out and about although some noises still scare him he looks to you and carries on. He still has some manners to learn when there is any type of food around but he does listen when told no. Keel gets on well with other dogs but can not be rehomed with cats as he is a hound and has chase instincts that take over. Keel will come to you for a fuss and will also lie next to you on the sofa.

what can we say about keel that we haven't already? he really has come on so far he's a little super star. he's absolutely brilliant when he's out and about he has started to let strangers fuss him. given the chance keel would love be with you all the time although hes greatful to be out of kennels and in foster but deep down we know he'd love to have a forever home. keel does have his little quirks but is such a smashing dog who deserves a chance. keel can not be home with cats or other small animals as his chase instinct kicks in.

24-11-22 UPDATE

Keel is a great little dog who definitely has his own character and little quirks. Hes getting so loving and just loves to go everywhere with you. Keel gets on well with both male and female dogs but unfortunately can not be rehomed with cats. Please be mindful it applying for Keel that he has been in foster for nearly 2 years now so will probably take a few weeks to settle in anywhere he goes.  He'll also need a garden that has a 6ft fench and is secure.
