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.

29-11-2022 Ice is a nervous girl who has come to us from a breeder.  Her passport ages her as a year old but we think she is older and have aged her as 6.  She is scared at the moment but but once in your arms she does settle down if you speak gentle to her.   Ice will need a calm and quiet home with someone who has experience with scared ex-breeding dogs. She will need at least one other dog to be her friend and who will allow her to cuddle up with them for comfort and support if she wants to.  She will watch what they do and then start to copy them which will help her with house training.  Ice will need to learn about how to walk on a lead as at the moment this is far too scary for her to even consider but with time, love and patience she will gradually start to realise she is loved and there is nothing to fear and her adopter will be rewarded with a devoted forever friend.

11-01-23 UPDATE

Ice has been with us for just over a week now and is slowly settling in. She is happy and content around our dogs but still not quite sure around us. She sleeps quietly all night in the kitchen with our three dogs, loves her food and has been clean around the house. Ice is now easy to get in from the garden, she will follow our dogs.
The first few days we could not get near her, Ice was not aggressive but would run away from us. After some training with a slip lead and gentle encouragement she soon learnt that we had kind hands and would not hurt her and then let me smooth her. Ice is still not sure if she enjoys this but will now tolerate it with no lead on, but only for a short time but it's a step in the right direction.
Ice has a long way to go but with plenty of TLC and patience she will reward you tenfold. Once clipped and groomed Ice will be stunning. She will need someone who has had experience with nervous dogs before, and would benefit from living with a another confident dog or two. If you think you could help Ice and have the experience please fill in the application form below. 

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.
