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.

15-11-21 Slipper originally came to us from a breeder and was briefly adopted but has been returned to her foster home as she didn't settle in her new home. Slipper is a very nervous girl and can feel very vulnerable at times. She is a really lovely girl, but if you move too fast she can feel threatened and sadly this can result in her being hard to manage and eventually snapping (when she was in her adoptive home). This is all fear based, and with time and love she will realise she is safe and will start to settle in to her new home. Slipper will need an adult only home with at least one other dog who can be her friend and  reassure her, along with helping her learn all about things like house training and walking on a lead. She will need extremely experienced adopters who have had dogs with similar issues to her before. She will need someone who can empathise with her - someone she can trust and feel comfortable to be with. Slipper has a Grade 2 heart murmur, she doesn't require any medication for this at the moment but it is something her new owners and their vet will need to monitor.

Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.
