Breed Patterdale Terrier (Fell Terrier)/Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age 2 years 10 months.
Whiskey is a very complicated little lady who needs a lot of support to help her re-adjust to home living. She needs an adult only home with experienced dog owners that can work with her to build on her confidence with new people and dogs. She must live in a quiet environment and have a securely fenced garden area to exercise. A rural setting is ideal. It is essential that Whiskey has no leaving hours initially, and they must be built up very slowly with realistic expectations that she really struggles to be left alone. Whiskey is a fantastic little project dog, given the right environment and training she has so much potential.
Breed German Shepherd Dog/Hound
Age 4 years 0 months.
Poppy is an affectionate girl who is new to the Sanctuary. She is currently under assessment, but will need to be the only dog with owners who have previous dog experience and are confident to handle a big girl.
Age 6 years 1 month.
Jango has lived a very sheltered life and is in desperate need of a loving family to help him re-adjust into home life. When he knows you he is so loving and affectionate and will even climb up for a cuddle. He is much more comfortable with female handlers, so new families may need to visit multiple times. He should live with adults only in a calm environment. He should be the only pet in the home but can have dog friends to play with.
Breed Shih Tzu
Age 4 years 2 months.
Violet has a history of fear aggression and will need a very understanding home to help with her behaviour. She is best suited to a household with ideally one person who can provide a very routine environment for her, as in her previous home struggled to bond with multiple people. She is good with other dogs but best suited to be the only pet in the home. If you feel you match Violets requirements then please request an application form to register your interest in Violet. Due to the amount of applications we receive please beware that we will only be contacting the successful application.
