Dogs for adoption 01777 708 707
All adoptions will be subject to a successful “Home Check”.
This is to verify that you have sufficient space in your home & garden, with suitable security (fences, walls etc) in order to confine your animal from escaping, being caught by a warden & returned to a council dog pound….again!
This will obviously depend upon the breed & size you wish to adopt.
We have to charge an adoption fee to cover food, veterinary treatments, vaccinations, neutering & micro- chipping whilst animals are in our care.
This does vary slightly dependant upon breed size & condition in which they arrive.
This is Peanut who's adoption failed and she has come back to the rescue. We have spent some time building her up again and now she is fighting fit and ready for what will hopefully be a forever home this time! Peanut needs a good quality diet as she has sensitive skin which can flare up. She is a lovely medium sized young dog, vacs and chipped and due to be spayed. All she needs is a committed family with plenty of time and love.
Lucy is a gorgeous little Miss who lurves people and human company and toys and running about and playing and life!! She is not great with other dogs and would like to be the only pet but other than this she is a superstar. She needs an active home and will be up for lots of walks, training, maybe even a bit of agility. This girl is intelligent and will love a challenge. Lucy is spayed, vacs, chipped and just waiting for a family to love her.
Little Miss Sandy is a sweet small sized girl who has had to come back to us as her Mum had a bad fall and can't take care of her anymore. She is very friendly with adults and other dogs although is not a fan of children. Sandy is 1-2 years now, spayed, vacs and chipped and so sad to be back in kennels. This freckled pretty poppet needs a loving new home.
Samba is a sweet friendly boy who was a little scared when he first arrived with us but now his cheeky, bubbly personality is coming through and he has kisses and cuddles for everyone. The only way we managed to get him to sit still for this picture was to mesmerise him with treats off camera! Samba gets on really well with other dogs and is great with people but would be happier with older children. He is still a pup and has a little more growing to do but is vacs and chipped and looking for a lovely forever home.
Here we have the fluffy and gorgeous Najya. She gets on great with other dogs and is lovely with humans too. Najya is vacs, spayed, chipped and just waiting for that special someone to take her home.
Meet George, an old timer with a sad face but a happy personality. George is 10 years plus but in good health apart from a little arthritis in his hips which some good food and supplements and a warm home will soon ease. George has a sad story. He had an owner in Romania who died. George was turned out on the street as is so common there but he lay outside his owner's apartment building for weeks patiently waiting and wondering where his owner was and why he wasn't allowed inside anymore. Luckily a kind lady rescued him before the dog catchers could drag him off to the pound to an uncertain fate and now he has made his way to us. This wonderful dog is calm, very friendly, clean in his kennel and great with other dogs. He is on a reduced adoption fee as an oldie and we want to see this gent settled into a loving retirement home as soon as possible. George has plenty of life left in him and deserves some spoiling in his twilight years.
Lovely Molly needs a very special adopter. She is great with other dogs and LOVES people she knows but come and meet her in the rescue and she will guard her kennel like an Amazonian if you are a stranger! We don't blame you for walking on by but if you happen to have a little time, and maybe a pooch or two at home (pref male) to keep her company (and you want to give a dog a chance that will othe...rwise spend the rest of her life with us) let us take you for a walk with her. Get to know her. Visit her and walk her a few times, give her a few treats and as if by magic you are no longer barked and growled at. You are loved! She has so much love to give when she stops her nonsense and trusts people. If you were to be that special someone to give her a chance she would be the most loyal dog you could wish for.
Bandit is a young JRT cross who was seized from a home where he was being neglected and mistreated (along with Smokey). The marks on his face are from having his mouth taped closed. He is a sweet, friendly boy who is good with other dogs and would happily live with a spayed female in his new home. He is now vacs and neutered and ready for a loving home.
This handsome puppy is Peter. He is a nervous boy and can be very fearful of strangers (especially men) but he is already coming on brilliantly after a short time with us. He is walking nicely on a harness and getting braver every day. Peter is a young unneutered male but vacs and chipped. He would suit a home with a playmate for him already, ideally a spayed female. Peter needs calm, patient and confident owners who will work with him at his pace and help him to become a happy and well balanced adult dog. He will be medium sized fully grown.
Here we beautiful Nugget. This sweet lad was adopted from us as a pup but was sadly returned recently. He has found being back in kennels incredibly hard and was very distressed and anxious for the first few weeks but now he is beginning to get his mojo back and a waggy tail. He is a lovely lad, a little nervous but friendly and playful. Nugget needs calm, confident and loving owners who will be patient and kind and teach him how to behave using positive training. Another confident female dog of a similar size would also help him settle. Nugget is neutered, vacs and chipped and almost 2 years old. A quiet home without children would suit him best. He has so much to offer the right home if he is given the chance to show his true character.
Wilf is looking a little shaggier since this picture was taken at the groomers but equally gorgeous! This is a special appeal to find a home for this boy. Wilf needs a home with no cats or small furries and ideally no children but he could live with other dogs pref spayed females of a similar size if carefully introduced. He gets very very excited when he sees other dogs but does not show aggression towards them. Wilf is a very high energy boy who needs lots of exercise and ideally a good sized high fenced and secure garden to burn off some energy in! He has a high prey drive so needs to stay on the lead at all times. We have found Wilf to be incredibly sweet and friendly at BARK and we really hope someone gives him a chance. He is a lovely chap he just needs the right home. Wilf is vacs, neutered and chipped and waiting for his chance
Brooke has been waiting and waiting for over five long years for someone to choose him and take him home. People are put off when they see him leaping around his kennel but out of his kennel he is a super dog, brilliant on the lead and loves his walks. This intelligent, handsome boy needs a home with no children due to past experiences and would like to be an only pet. He has so much love and loyalty to give the right home. Brooke is neutered.
This gorgeous young lad is Gizzy. He really is a fabulous dog, so loving and friendly. Gizzy has a skin condition which is improving all the time and he will need good quality food and careful monitoring to ensure it doesn't flare up again. Gizzy really is a sweetheart and fantastic with other dogs. He is just waiting for the home he so deserves.
This sweetheart is Lily. Her photos don't do her justice as this girl is a stunner. She was only a tiny pup when she first arrived at BARK with the rest of her litter 5 years ago. Since then she has been in a loving home but sadly her Dad is now very poorly and can no longer take care of her so the difficult decision was made to send her back to us to find a new family. Lily is such a gentle, friendly girl. She is a little shy but adores people. She is very timid with other dogs and needs some work in this department. Lily is neutered, vacs and chipped and looking for a quiet home with lots of cuddles and walks
This gorgeous girlie is Arielle. Can't say enough nice things about this sweet, gentle dog. She is an older girl perhaps 5-8 years so nice and calm and walks beautifully on the lead but loves a good roll around and a cuddle and fuss. She loves people. She gets on well with calm male dogs who don't bother her so much and is sharing with one of our chaps here at BARK. Arielle will make a fantastic companion. She has been beautifully groomed by her rescuer before coming to us and is in great condition. All she needs is a loving forever home. One very special and beautiful dog.
Lenny has been with us a little while now. He was quite thin when he arrived and needed some building up. He has been through the wars and has a few scars but is a big daft lump of a dog and super friendly. He is a bit like an over grown pup now and needs adopters with lots of time to wear him out and train him as he tends to leap all over people forgetting he is a big fella. He gets on well with some dogs but needs careful introductions as he has been bullied and can go on the defensive. Lenny has a lot of love to give and will suit an adults only home due to his boisterous behaviour and someone who will give him lots of exercise and teach him how to politely greet the humans! He is neutered, vacs and chipped and ready to go.
Our spotty lurcher Betsy is still waiting in the kennels for her forever home. She is a lovely loyal dog and bonds to people she knows. She is not great with other dogs and Betsy would suit an adults only home best but she has so much love to give if only someone will give her a chance. Her last home offer fell through only because the fencing was too low and the landlord would not allow it to be altered. Poor Betsy just doesn't have any luck and she deserves a normal happy life in a forever home.
This daft pupster is Henry. He was adopted but sadly when he went to work on his Dad's market stall with him every day he couldn't cope with all the people and was barking at all the customers which was not good for business! Henry is still very young and needs someone with the time and patience to train him and slowly build his confidence and socialise him so that the outside world doesn't seem so scary. He would happily live with a spayed female pooch esp one who will give him confidence and show him the way. Henry is vacs and chipped but still too young to be neutered and needs more time to mature before this is done when he is approx. a year old.
Nikki is such a lovely dog with people she knows but with strangers she can be aloof and wary. She just needs time to build trust and confidence and then you see the real Nikki. She would like to be an only pet ideally and a home without children would suit her best. Nikki is spayed, vacs and chipped and has already been waiting far too long for her forever home. Could you take the time to get to know our girl and give her a chance at a better life than kennels can offer her?
Nino is a very sweet, friendly and affectionate dog who is far less nervous of people than his pal Azur but when out on walks he looks to his pal a lot for reassurance. He would benefit from being rehomed with a confident and calm spayed female. Nino is neutered, vacs and chipped and needs a patient, kind and loving home (ideally without children) where he can build trust and affection with his owners. He is a wonderful soul
This gorgeous chap is Azur who has come in with his long time pal Nino but may in fact be better off rehomed without him and with a confident calm spayed female. Azur is very nervous of people and takes time to build trust. He will flinch if strangers try to touch him. This is slowly improving as he grows used to things at BARK but Azur will need adopters prepared to give him all the time and patience he needs. He will then be the most loyal and loving dog you can wish for. Azur would be best without children due to his nervousness. He is intelligent and has had some training. He walks best in a harness and is more independent out on walks than kennelmate Nino. Azur is neutered, vacs, chipped and just waiting for a very special and loving home
Meet the very handsome Johnny! He is approx a year old and very like a black Giant Schnauzer although parentage unknown. He is a lovely, friendly and very lively lad who will suit older children as he is so bouncy and in need of some training. Johnny has an old untreated and healed injury to one of his front legs/ shoulder but this does not seem to bother him if he is kept in warm conditions. Clearly rescue kennels in winter are no good for him at all. He would benefit from good quality joint supplements/ hydrotherapy in the future. Johnny is looking for a home who can cope with the training needs of a big adult dog who acts like a puppy. He is a stunning dog, neutered, vacs and chipped and waiting for the right family. We have yet to test him with cats and dogs more info on this to follow.
This is Mara, a young adult spaniel cross who has had a difficult life so far and is looking for a very special home. Mara has suffered abuse and starvation in her past. Her tail became caught in a fence and she had to chew it to get free. She was then rescued a very thin, injured dog and taken good care of but chewing her tail became a nervous habit and it took a long time to stop her doing this so that her tail could heal. Mara is spayed, vacs and chipped and such a loving dog who will be incredibly loyal in the right home but she is very sensitive and needs an experienced doggy home with patient owners who will work with her to overcome her fears. Mara can get very nervous in certain situations, especially around strangers. She also has a habit of guarding her bed or crate. Mara needs an understanding child and pet free home where she can build a firm bond with her owners. She has a lot of love to give the humans who help her overcome her past.
This is Honey, another beautiful female puppy, the largest of the litter but she will still be small to med sized fully grown. Honey loves her cuddles and is such a sweet girl. She is vacs and chipped and just waiting for her family.
Bob is a neutered JRT cross (don't be deceived by the pics he is much bigger than a JRT!) and was rehomed by BARK as a young dog. Now sadly at 8 years old he is back with us. He is a sweet funny chap who is full of life. He looks like a JRT who has had some of Jack's magic beans. Would suit older children or adults only. loves to play. Bob does not get on with other dogs and needs to be an only pet but will be a great companion and really needs a second chance at happiness.
Toby is a sweet lovely boy, less than a year old and super friendly and cuddly. He is great with other dogs and has already been neutered, vacs and chipped. He will be a medium sized, gentle and gorgeous boy who just needs his very own home!
This is Shane who the staff have nicknamed Dobby! He is a lovely boy, gets on well with other dogs and is looking for a forever home. He is neutered, vacs and chipped and a young boy with bags of energy. He would suit older children in a new home and would love a spayed female doggy companion.
This gorgeous girly is Ebony. She is 1-2 years old and currently undergoing her vaccinations and assessment but it is safe to say she loves people and fuss! When she is fully vacs we will test her further with dogs but her reactions have all been great so far. Ebony has just finished a season so will also need to be spayed before leaving BARK but this sweet dog is going to need a fabulous forever home very soon. We think she's just beautiful.
Marmalade is a young adult male who has been found as a stray. He needs to be neutered and this will be done in the next few weeks. Marmalade is a little scared and shy still but likes to talk to us and likes a fuss. He will be looking for a home in the new year when he has lost his manhood.
This lovely young lad is Red. He has a really nice temperament and loves people. Could live happily with a spayed female but would also be content having his humans all to himself. Red is a medium sized, neutered adult, vacs and chipped and ready for a lovely forever home.
This is Rupert, a special little chap who is long in body, short in leg and big in personality! He has been waiting for a forever home for a few years now and is around 6 years old. He desperately needs to get out of the kennel environment and into a home as he gets over excited when he sees people and a lead and can be a bit OTT, grabbing the lead and us in his giddiness to be out in the sunshine...! As soon as he is out on a walk he is a champ and this would soon stop in a home environment. He is such a fantastic character. Sadly he does not get on well with other dogs but he would love an adults only home where he could just be himself and enjoy life, showing what a loving boy he really is. Rupert is neutered and chipped.
Little boy ready after Christmas and looking for a loving and responsible home.
This is Pippa, a lovely shy girl around 4 years old who suffered terrible abuse in her past and is very brave considering that for months we could not get this girl to leave her kennel or bed without carrying her. Pippa needs a very patient calm home with no children. She can live with another male if carefully introduced (she can be a bit choosey!) and currently lives with Cesar our tripaw. She is a sweetheart and in the right home will continue to make amazing progress. Pippa will always hold her head slightly to one side due (we suspect) to being hurled by a dog catchers pole by the neck in Romania.
This is Snoopy, a loveAluna was very nervous and shy when she came into us but this little girl is now happy, friendly and has a tail wag for all our visitors. She is looking for a home without children, but she would happily live with another dog and shares with Ellie at the moment. Aluna will make a lovely companion and is ready for a home of her own. She is spayed, vacs and chipped.ly small sized cross breed boy who has just come into the rescue. He is less than a year old, vacs, chipped and neutered and looking for a new home. A real sweetheart.
