Here are some of the dogs we have available for rehoming at the moment. Please be aware that we cannot be sure how well any of the dogs will get on with any cats you may have at home.
These dogs are featured here because none of them were wearing ID discs when picked up and when scanned, none were microchipped. Look after your pet and get him microchipped - that way he will be returned to you if he strays. Dogs must wear ID tags by law. Ask at reception for disc engraving done while you wait and microchipping by appointment.
We have new dogs arriving at the centre every day and so the most recent arrivals may not feature on this page for a few days. Please contact us if you'd like more up to date information.
Please - think carefully when deciding to rehome a dog.
Dogs are being let down by people who agree to take them, but then change their minds.

BrandyA letter from Brandy's foster home :
Hi,my name is Brandy. I'm around 5 years old and I'm a Staffy cross Boxer girl.
My foster Mum tells me every day I'm a pretty girl and a good girl. I can be left for a short time, I just sleep the day away in peace and quiet. I also know all my manners. I sit and wait for food and I do not touch unless told to. I can 'speak' on command, give both paws, sit, down, bed, stay and leave. I'm very affectionate and think I'm a lap dog. When my Mum comes home from work, I greet her, show her all my toys and then snuggle down on the sofa for a cuddle.
I am clean in the house, I do not chew, have accidents or bark when my foster parents go out. I need to be an only animal in the house.
I'm full of character, extremely intelligent, happy and an affectionate girl, who needs the right people to give me a chance. I guarantee that once I'm in your life, I'll leave a paw print on your heart.
RandolphA stunning, castrated, handsome and VERY loving dog. Randy is a big boy who needs a home with no other dogs or cats please. During his time with us, he has shown that he is not good with other dogs. Randy is hoping to find a home with experience of the bigger breeds. Very loving towards people.
Stan in fosterStan is approx.13 months old. He would best be suited in a home with older children due to his size. Stan will need a strong owner. During his time with us, he has shown to have a lovely temperament. Stan is a lovely boy and very big ! A gentle giant.
Here is an update from Stan's foster Mum :
I thought I would send some photos of Stan and also update how he is getting on. He is a big beautiful boy, he gets on fantastically with my girl German Shepherd. He is not so good with other male dogs even though we have tried plenty of times to introduce him with males. He is fantastic with females. You can leave treats, bones and toys on the floor with no problem. Stan can sit, wait, roll over, paw,and lay down, also bark on command. He loves cuddles and sleeping,is a very clean dog and not one accident in the house. An all round brilliant dog. We will be very sad when a lucky family has him as part of their family but we want Stan to have the very best!! He can be left for reasonable amounts of time as long as he has got a bone. Stan doesn't like shouting or fighting and is a very happy dog but not too keen on cats. He loves a ride in the car and loves kids. Stan is not bothered about someone eating, if it's our dinner time, he will just lay in his bed. He takes treats gently. No damage to my house. But he will run at the front door if someone knocks. He loves soft toys. I hope some of this is helpful,he is an ace big dog and so deserves a permanent home. Stan is the man.
Please call the kennels to arrange to meet Stan.
HarleyAbsolutely GORGEOUS dog, about 2 years old. During his time with us,he has made friends with everyone. He is looking for a family who love the big dogs. Big and daft - that's Harley!
Harley is an American Bulldog or American bulldog cross.
Aero chocolate beauty.A great favourite at the kennels is Aero! She is a Staffie cross bitch who, during her time with us, has shown herself to be a happy dog who is good with cats. An experienced doggy home is needed where Aero can continue her training. She can be grumpy with other dogs, but is fine with cats!!
Noel has been waiting a yearSo called, because he was dumped at Christmas. Noel is a great favourite at the kennels, because during his time with us,he has been walking nicely on his lead, he has not jumped up and has not been at all boisterous. He is calm and loving. Noel is only about 2-3 years old. He is polite and has nice manners. He shows no attention to other dogs or livestock. Noel does not like cats.
He would love a family to call his own. He's waited a long time.
TysonYoung Staffie boy. Came in to us, dangerously thin - totally emaciated. We had not advertised him until now, as he was too weak. Now, after careful nursing and lots of very small feeds, he is ready to go to a new home. He had been reported as seen wandering around on his own for three weeks, prior to him being caught when he wandered into a couple's back garden. He was so thin, we don't know how he was still standing up. He had no trust in people, which has now grown immensly. He loves everyone here! He sits on command but is quite strong on the lead at the moment, so he will need a firm, kind owner who will take hm to dog training classes. Unfortunately, he cannot live with other animals or birds.
DreDre is a 2 year old, beautiful male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. During his time with us,he has shown us that he is a true gentleman. He is good to walk, he sits on command and gives his paw. Very loving. Dre doesn't like cats though, so strong,sensible owners are what we are looking for. Strikingly handsome dog. Not yet tested with other dogs.
JosieJosie is a medium sized staffie bitch cross with goodness knows what! She absolutely LOVES to play ball. She loves a belly-rub and loves her food even more! During her time with us, she has shown herself to be a very friendly little girl and is all over you when you go in for a cuddle! Assessments with other animals ongoing.
Josie would like a home with no small children as she can be boisterous in play.
BaileyPoor Baily has been very mistreated in the past, but bears no grudge. He still loves people, despite what has happened to him at the hands of uncaring, spiteful owners. He has so many different breeds in him, it's hard to tell quite what mix he is!! He looks a bit like a hyena and has funny sticky out ears and a dear, funny little face. He really is a typical mongrel and will make someone a lovely, faithful companion and family member. Assessments with other animals are ongoing.
DenDen is a happy, baby Labrador cross. During his time with us, he has shown us that he is an affectionate, nutty dog who loves all the attention. He was frightened when he first arrived but not now - everyone is a potential friend to Den!
FlapjackFlapjack is a Patterdale cross. He is looking for a home with no cats and could possibly share with another dog the same size but no bigger. Flapjack is fine with older children and is believed to be around 6yrs old.
Kittens Jack and DillThese kittens are 16 weeks old and need to be rehomed together. They are brothers.
Fluffy is a probably a Labrador/Staffie cross. He is just one of hundreds of similar looking 'Staffie types' searching for a home of his own in this country right now. We know, because of that, he will probably be here a very long time, waiting for his chance of happiness.
Still, he's happy enough here. He likes all of us but I bet if he could speak, he'd probably ask for a family of his own.
We are looking for a home without children because Fluffy is a big, heavy dog.
Fluffy is about 5 years old and during his time with us, has proven himself to be good on lead, quite obedient and goes out for walkies with other dogs.
He eats an ordinary complete food, together with some tinned meat and his tummy is good on this. He is clean in his kennel.
Fluffy is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
Fluffy is hoping for a home where he doesn't have to be called 'Fluffy' !!!
BostonBoston is a happy, laid back boy who is content with life. During his stay with us, he's taken no notice of other dogs. We know he can be left in the house when you go out. He walks well on his lead. Boston is about six years old and a very laid back, grateful, easy-going boy. Lovely easy dog.
OscarDuring his time with us, Oscar has proven to be a very popular dog with the staff and visitors. He loves to play with us. He's been around children and had been very good with them. He looks at the cats but has not shown any bad feeling towards them. He's castrated. A nice dog.
Perry saved from death row.Perry has been saved by Mutts from another rescue that had no room for him. He has a temporary place.
Perry is an entire male Staffy X, white with brindle patches, approx 5-8 months old. During his time with us, he has paid no attention to the livestock and cats and seems good with dogs. When other dogs have barked or growled, Perry wags his tail and walks away. He is very affectionate, playful and well mannered.
FrankFrank is approx. 2 years old. He is a large dog, a Boxer cross and has just arrived at Mutts in Distress. He was a very popular dog in the pound where he was awaiting execution for being just 'another unclaimed stray'.
Assessments will be carried out and we will update here as we learn more about him.
BlossomBlossom is lovely. She's a Great Dane cross. She's only about 8-9 months old and has just arrived, so we will update when we get to know her a bit. She is very underweight at the moment but so far, seems a big and very sweet natured pup.
ArchieArchie is thought to be an Akita cross baby,around a year old. He has just been castrated, is fully vaccinated and microchipped. During his time with us, Archie has shown that he likes people, but can play rough and mouth quite hard when he's doing so. For this reason, we are looking for a home with no children, as quite unintentionally, because of his size,he could hurt a small person. Archie has a lot of love to give and likes to be busy. He loves play and loves his walks. An ideal dog for someone experienced with big breeds.
AvaPretty young German Shepherd cross bitch. Just arrived. She was apparently 'found' by a member of the public. She was on death row waiting to be destroyed as an unclaimed 'stray'. Fortunately, we had a kennel available and took her in on the day she was due to die. She's shy and very bewildered. She seems to be wondering what's happened to her. She is safe now and is undergoing assessment. A very pretty golden colour. More information as we learn more about her.
HollyHolly is a dear little Jack Russell bitch, about six years old. She's only just arrived, so we will update as we get to know her.
MyrtleA wire haired Jack Russell bitch. More info once she has settled in.
Young pupArriving soon, a young terrier pup. More info once settled in.
