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.

15-12-2022 Nicklette has come to us from a breeder.  She is a scared girl who is very wary about humans but will allow us to gently pick her up although she is very worried about being approached at first.  Nicklette will need a calm adult only, home where there is at least one other dog who can help give her some much needed confidence with people.  With their help she will start to settle into home life and she will watch them and then start to copy what they do which will help her with things like house training and lead walking. The garden may be as scary as the inside of a home at first and lead walking will take her time to learn.  This needs to start in the garden before venturing into the outside in quiet areas.  With adopters who understand what Nicklette needs is love and kindness, she will start to learn that the rest of her life will be wonderful and start to become much braver.  Nicklette has a passport.

23-01-23 UPDATE
This incredibly beautiful girl has been with us for just over a month now and she’s made a small amount of progress since she first arrived. She is generally quite a happy girl and she’s settled into my routine really well, but she is still very frightened of us humans and our scary hands. She will run away if I approach her and she is quite jumpy and skittish when I need to pick her up. She’s obviously still not used to being handled yet, so this is something I’ll continue to work with her on and hope that she realises soon that there’s no need to be afraid.
Nicklette is very reliant on her kennel friends and you will always find her cuddled up with them in bed. She takes great comfort in having them around so it’s definitely still essential that she’s homed with at least 1 kind and confident resident dog. She will probably be very overwhelmed when she first gets home as everything will be completely brand new to her, so her new owners will need to prepare for this and do everything they can do make sure she feels as comfortable as she can be. I think it will be a good while until Nicklette is anything near a ‘normal’ dog, so they’ll need to be completely understanding of this but accept her and love her regardless.
Nicklette is a real foodie and she gets so excited at breakfast and dinner time which is really nice to see. She won’t take treats from my hand yet, but she will eat them off the floor if I throw them near me. I try and spend as much time as I can doing this with her to earn some trust, and I’d definitely recommend that her new owners continue to do it with her when she gets home!

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.
