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.

28-03-2022 Caleb has very sadly been returned.  He originally came to us from Romania and had a terrible start to life being brought up on the streets.  This has left Caleb a very worried boy and although he loved his family they had a busy home and he finds new people and new situations very stressful which has resulted in him in snapping at strangers. 
Caleb needs an experienced adult only home with at least one other confident dog and owners who understand the fact he is so worried he can be unpredictable in certain situations.  He needs a quiet and calm home where there is not too many people coming and going.  Caleb is house trained although he can be worried about going in the garden on his own especially in the dark but with another dog that may help his confidence with that.  He walks on a lead but can react to people when out walking and may always require a muzzle when around strangers but that should not prevent him from living a full life. He is a very young and trainable dog who just needs the right environment so if you have the time, experience and comitment to work with Caleb please apply and get him out of kennels as soon as possible.

I had the pleasure of walking and getting to know Caleb yesterday. Initially he was scared and nervous of me and being out, but not nervous enough to refuse the few pieces of cheese that were on offer. I took him on the quietest walk around the rescue and it was lovely to see him start to relax the more we walked. He walks beautifully on a lead and after about 20 minutes he was wagging his tail and wanted to interact with me. I felt confident enough to then take him on a slightly busier route when a few cars and a tractor passed us with no reaction from him. We passed another dog and Caleb made it very clear he wanted to play and can't wait to make some new friends. Caleb will sit, give his paw and is very gentle when taking treats. He is a beautiful, young dog who deserves his new start in life and, in the right, quiet home with an owner experienced in handling nervous dogs, he will flourish and live the life he is meant to have.

Caleb has been back in kennels for a little while now and initially he was very reactive to any new person he saw, he'd bark at them non-stop and hope they'd go away. So, we put in place a plan for different people to go in to his kennel, completely ignore him, crouch down and then offer him treats. When he'd had a couple of high value treats they would get up and leave without too much stimulation. It's only been a few days and the difference in him is incredible. So, Calebs new home will have to be able to continue his training and positive association with new people and experiences. He does love other dogs and he will need a resident dog in his new home, he loves to play but could do with a very good role model to learn from. I am smitten with this boy, he has a heart of gold and deserves people to truly love him and be by his side for the rest of his life.

Caleb had his first taste of Squeezy cheese today and he was instantly a fan.
Caleb is the sweetest boy who needs a home that will help him gain confidence and become a happier boy. He finds some men to be scary, he has been good with all the female staff of MT but does find a couple of the men intimidating which he communicates by barking at them. He needs a child free home with atleast one resident dog that will show him the world isn't that scary. He has also passed his cat test.
I find it heartbreaking watching this boy in kennels, he has so much love to give, he just needs people that know how to help him and will fully commit to forever.  

19-05-22 UPDATE
Caleb wanted to pop in and show you all what a model he is. He is making such huge progress and is the most cuddly boy with people he trusts.
