Dogs

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.

Picture of Brandy

Brandy

A 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.

A 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.

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!!
Picture of Tyson

Tyson

Young 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.
Picture of Josie

Josie

Josie 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.
Picture of Bailey

Bailey

Poor 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.
Picture of Den

Den

Den 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!
Picture of Flapjack

Flapjack

Flapjack 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.

Picture of Fluffy

Fluffy

Meet Fluffy!
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' !!!

Picture of Archie

Archie

Archie 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.

Once he's been assessed, we will be looking to find him a kind home with a family who will look after him this time. At the moment, he is said to be very scared.
We'll make it all better for him.

Picture of Spanish Pups

Spanish Pups

These six puppies were in a 'killing farm' in Spain. A killing farm is where people who don't want their dogs, take them to be killed. These were brought to the attention of BIGGSD (a German Shepherd rescue forum), whose members clubbed together to raise the 1,200 pounds to get them out and over to the UK. The job was then to find them somewhere safe to go once they got to England. Mutts In Distress have opened their doors to these youngsters and will give them everything they need to get them on the road to a happy life. Once they are well and happy, we will be looking for kind,permanent homes.
Update: the pups are thriving and well socialised. Gorgeous.
Picture of Spanish Pups

Spanish Pups

update : the pups are slowly coming round and gaining confidence. Some more than others but they are learning that not all humans are bad. They have soft beds, toys and human contact and can take their own time in relaxing without being forced to interact. A great improvement already.
Here they are stretching their legs in the paddock and having some gentle fuss.
One has now been rehomed. These are happy confident pups now, as they should be. They are doing really well.

Picture of Tyson GSD

Tyson GSD

Another beautiful German Shepherd (Alsation) who finds himself facing certain death in Ireland. Many unwanted German Shepherds are put to sleep in Ireland every day, for doing no wrong - the owners just don't want them.
This pup is unwanted by his owners and he's been handed in to the pound who, after he's been there for seven days, will kill him if he has nowhere to go.
We can't stand by and let that happen. He's just a baby.
Updates when he arrives.
