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.

25-11-2022 Millie has come to us from a breeder.  She is a bit reserved at the moment but does allow you to pick her up and stroke her and we don't think it will take her too long to come round.  Millie will need an adult only, calm and gentle home where there is at least one other dog who is very kind and who will allow her to cuddle up to them for comfort and support if she wants to.  This will help raise her confidence with people and she will watch them and start to copy what they do and this will also help her learn new skills like house training and lead walking.  These may take her time to learn as the garden may be as scary as the inside of a home at first but with love, gentle words of encouragement and praise she will gradually start to realise there is nothing to fear and her adopters will see her become the happy little dog we are sure is just waiting to come out.

03-01-22 UPDATE

Millie has been in here in her foster home for a few weeks. When she first arrived she was very frightened and traumatised. She had learnt that humans are not trustworthy. This poor little girl needed kind, gentle patient handling, so she could come to realise she was not going to be hurt. She is doing much better, but her confidence is fragile. Considering all this she is doing amazingly well.
She loves the car, especially as she now knows trips in the car usually mean a visit to my secure field where she can enjoy having a free run and some fun times (see video) She is loving home comforts, being warm, comfortable and well fed. At night, she sleeps contendly in her own warm bed in the family bedroom. Millie will need other kind, welcoming dogs in her adoptive home and sensitive adopters who are already experienced with scared dogs like Millie.  

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.
