Dogs: Ernie

Ernie

Male - approx. 12yrs old

Ernie is a sweet, loving little boy who was found as a stray on New Years Eve. Despite several appeals nobody has come forward to claim him. He is now looking for a forever home. The vet thinks he is around 12 years old but he’s a bouncy, lively little dog who loves people. There was another little dog found close by, Eric, and we think they may have lived together but cannot be sure. Ernie will be neutered later this week and also needs to have some teeth taken out. Do you think you could offer this older gentleman a forever home? A comfy bed and a cuddle is what he needs now - not stuck waiting in our kennel.

Dogs: Buddy

Buddy

Male - Approx 1 yr old

Meet Buddy a super special elf who we are hoping will be able to find his forever home just in time for Christmas! Buddy is a brindle and white crossbreed who came to us from a member of the public who was finding it difficult to give Buddy the time and care he needs. Buddy wasn't in the best condition, he had dry, flakey skin on his back and sore, inflamed ears but he is now looking and feeling much better after receiving treatment. Buddy has bags of energy and a huge amount of love to give and we are hoping it wont be long before someone falls for him. Everyone that meets Buddy falls in love with him. He absolutely loves attention and is more than happy to keep staff company whilst they are working on reception and he will greet visitors with a big grin and a tail wag. Occasionally he can be a little shy if he doesn't know you but it doesn't take much time (along with a couple of treats) before he is your best friend! Buddy knows basic commands such as 'sit' and 'paw' but does need some work on his recall. He also loves to play with toys and is excellent at playing fetch. He will happily chase after a ball and bring it back to you for you to throw it for him again. He does have quite a strong chase instinct so we think that if he was to live with a cat, the cat would have to be very laid back and be used to being around dogs. He's also been very good with his toilet training. He has only had a couple of accidents in the time that we've had him in our care and we think that with some simple training at home it won't take him long before he is completely house trained. Buddy is a lively, bouncy boy so we think that a home where there are no young children would be best for him as we wouldn't want him pushing them over. He does seem to really enjoy the company of other dogs so we would be happy for him to live with a friend after they have met at our centre. He has lots of energy and loves going for walks so he would be best suited to a home where he will get plenty of stimulation and exercise.

Dogs: Joey

Joey

Lurcher - 10 months old

We have a super sweet boy residing at the centre looking for his forever home. Joey originally came into our care at the end of 2017 when he and his littermates were dumped at our centre in a box. They were only around 8 weeks old and were extremely poorly and required round the clock care. Thankfully the puppies pulled through and went off to loving new homes, but sadly due to a change in his owners circumstances, Joey has found himself back at our centre. At only around 10 months old, Joey is a typical puppy and as you can imagine he is full of energy! He loves nothing more than running around and playing with his toys. He knows basic commands such as 'sit' and 'paw' but his recall is something that needs to be worked on. He has improved since coming back to our centre and we are sure that with some consistency and a little more training, it shouldn't take him long! Joey is extremely loving and absolutely adores people! His tail almost never stops wagging and he will happily come and sit by you, sometimes even on you, to make it easier for you to stroke him! He can get a little carried away and will sometimes jump up at you to greet you. He means absolutely no harm when he does this, he's just really excited to see you but we think that he would be best suited to a home where there are no small children. Joey also loves other dogs. He will happily run around the playing field with them, quite often showing off how quick he is! He can get a little too excitable sometimes but seems to respond well when an older dog 'tells him off' and puts him in his place! He tends to back down and roll over to say sorry! We are happy to let Joey live with another dog and since he has previously lived with cats, we think he would be fine to go to a home where there are feline residents as long as they are used to being around dogs. Joey really has stolen the hearts of all the staff and volunteers at the centre with his sweet, loving nature and we want nothing more than for him to find a home where he will receive the training and stimulation he needs. We think that he would be best suited to a home where he won't be left alone for long periods of time, simply because he gets bored! He will need quite a lot of exercise to help burn off his energy so quite an active household would be ideal. He has been good as gold when it comes to toilet training at the centre and we are hoping that this is something that will continue when he finds his forever home. We are sure that with a bit of training and encouragement Joey will become a wonderful addition to a family! He has bags of love to give and really is a big sweetheart!
