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. 

Hugh is a 4-5 year old neutered French Bulldog who is in desperate need of an experienced home. Hugh needs to be the only pet in an adults only home. He is a very loving boy once he knows people but they need to be introduced in the right way so that he has time to get comfortable around them before they try to fuss him. He was rehomed earlier in the year and doing extremely well but then one of his owners bent down to kiss him when he was rubbing Hugh's belly one day and Hugh panicked and nipped his lip. He is a very loving dog but he needs his space. If you think you have the time and patience for our Hugh he is now back at BARK and waiting for that special home again.

This big teddy bear is Alfie. He is 3-5 years old and a very calm, sweet boy who loves people. Alfie does not like cats and his previous owners told us he was not good with other dogs but he hasn't reacted badly to any of the other dogs at BARK in fact quite the opposite and was happy to wag his tail and say hello to several and to go for a walk with a very lively puppy without batting an eye (even when she ran straight into him!) so we think he would be fine with a similar sized easy going female doggy. Alfie is in need of a good hair cut as he has an extremely thick coat which in hot weather must be very uncomfortable for him. Our next step is to get him a short back and sides and find him a lovely home. Alfie is neutered, vacs and chipped.

This gorgeous young chap is Cane. He can be shy at first but once he gets to know you this boy is lovely. He is growing in confidence all the time and it would help him to be rehomed with another confident playful dog (spayed female). Older children would suit him best. Cane will be a loyal and fantastic companion who will bring lots of love and fun to a new home. He is vacs and chipped but not neutered yet

Millie has been given the all clear from the vets and is looking for a lovely quiet retirement home. They have decided not to wire her jaw as she is managing to eat but with a previously broken jaw and about 2 teeth left she can only eat certain types and textures of foods so she will always need a special diet she can cope with. Millie is 8 years old, spayed and good with both cats and dogs (she ignores them). She really deserves some spoiling after all she has been through. She may not be the prettiest and she will always be sticking her tongue out at you but she really is a lovely little dog who just wants to curl up on the sofa with you and run round the garden. She will love daily walks but doesn't need to be going miles. If you think you have space in your life for little Millie please get in touch with us at the rescue.This smiley ginger fox is our little Happy. She is a lovely young girl who can be a little shy at first but soon comes round and wants fuss. She is vacs, chipped but has just had her first season so not yet spayed. She gets on well with other dogs and would love to be rehomed with a playmate (neutered male). Older children would suit her best. Happy will make a wonderful companion and is just waiting for her forever home.

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.

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.

This is Freddie the second of two boys in the litter. He is 4-5 months old, vacs and chipped and looking for a wonderful home like his brother and 5 sisters!

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 is Angel. Big ears run in this family that's for sure! One day she will grow into those ears but right now she is 4-5 months old, vacs and chipped and looking for a fabulous 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.

My name is Henry! I'm 4-5 months old and pretty gorgeous don't you think? I am vacs and chipped and looking for a fabulous home.

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

Newly arrived in the cattery are these pretty ladies. These girls are spayed, chipped and vacs and a year old, a little shy but very sweet and all in need of patient, kind and loving homes.

This chap is the last of our ginger boys who is waiting for a loving home. You may remember he and his brothers were brought in by a caring member of the public. They had been dumped skinny and with dreadful flea infestations and hair loss. They all recovered beautifully and this chap is the quiet one who likes a fuss but likes to stay in his bed and snooze quite a bit. He is neutered and he says he won't be any trouble all he wants is a nice home, food and love and he will be a happy chap. Can you offer this sweet boy a home?

This beauty is Maddie. She is 4-5 months old, vacs and chipped and will be medium sized fully grown. Who could resist that face?

Melody is a 4-5 months old cross breed pupster who will be small/medium sized full grown. She is vacs and chipped and has the best ears!


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 is William, currently a Tom cat but will losing his manhood next week! He is just under a year old and looking for a lovely new home.

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.

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.

Suzy has come on in leaps and bounds while at Babworth. She is very very shy but a gentle girl who gets on well with other dogs and just needs patient, kind adopters to give her a loving home. Suzy would be better in a home without children as she is quite a nervous dog. A quiet, calm home with lots of TLC and confidence building (especially with another easy going neutered male) would suit her best. She is spayed, vacs, chipped etc.

Meet playful little scrufster Joanne. What a little sweetheart she is but very shy at the moment and slowly beginning to trust us. She gets on great with other dogs and a confident calm neutered male companion would help her come out of her shell in her new home. She is gentle and sweet and will make a fabulous companion. Young children may be a little much for her as she is so timid but a calm, quiet household would be wonderful. Joanne is vacs, spayed, chipped and just waiting for her perfect family

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? 

Willy was rehomed by BARK in previous years but sadly his owner's health has declined and he has had to move into a retirement home. Willy is an older chap himself but still full of beans and loves a walk. He would make an ideal companion for someone who didn't want to walk miles but would take him out twice a day for a nice stroll and let him run around in a nice sized garden. He is neutered, vacs and chipped and housetrained. He has come back to us a little chunky and could do with slimming back down a little! Willy is a lovely friendly chap who just wants to be someone's pal.

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.

Heidi is a sweet, friendly adult female looking for a wonderful new home. She looks like a corgi cross in build and is a very pretty lady. Heidi gets on well with other dogs and would happily live with a neutered male companion in her new home. She is not used to being on a lead yet but a well-fitting harness will help her not to panic and feel happy going for walks. Heidi is spayed, vacs and chipped and just waiting for a family.

This gorgeous boy is Hilton. He is an adult neutered male with some Doberman in the mix we think. Hilton has a wonderful temperament- very laid back with other dogs and very friendly with people. Hilton needs to gain some weight but he loves his grub so this is already happening quite quickly! He has some scars on his back leg from an old injury but this doesn't bother him. Hilton will happily live with a spayed female companion. Older children would be best as he is quite a bouncy boy. We love this boy at the rescue and we hope someone will fall in love with him and offer him a fabulous home.

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.


This cutie is Poppy, a collie cross pup who is 5-6 months old, vacs and chipped and looking for an active home with lots of time for training and walks. All the pups are bouncy and active but need to build confidence in new situations as the world around them is a scary place with all kinds of machines and noises they need to become accustomed to! These babies have so much potential and with good training and socialisation they will become fantastic family members. Poppy's adopters must be prepared to spay her after her first season


 Poor old Rex desperately needs a home. He is 8-10 years young, so sweet and affectionate with the ladies but takes a little longer to trust men. He needs to be an only dog but is happy to pass dogs out on a walk as long as they don't get in his space (he does not react or lunge at other dogs who are around him if not right up close). Rex is perfect on the lead just plods happily along at your side.... He loves fuss and cuddles and flirts with all the lady visitors to get them to fuss him and give him a scratch behind the ears. He has been with us over three years now and all the staff long to see him in his own home. He is available for long term foster as an oldie or adoption on a reduced fee. He is neutered and chipped. No children or cats.

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 little girly catching some rays yesterday is Silvy. She is a small sized young adult female who is spayed, vacs and chipped. Silvy is settling in and starting to come out of her shell more. She is a sweet dog who can be nervous with new people but is soon your best friend once she knows you are kind. She has the most beautiful stripey markings and is a lovely girl who gets on really well with other dogs. She would happily live with a neutered male in her new home.

Gorgeous young girl Baby is a small sized doggy who is quite shy but doing great and sweet personality is coming through. She loves her walks with her best mate and kennel companion Jasper. They play together beautifully and a confident neutered male doggy pal in her new home would be a bonus for her. She is vacs and chipped and will soon be old enough to be spayed. She will make a lovely companion and will blossom in the right home.


Lucy is a proper little live wire. She is super friendly, loves her toys and her walks! Lucy can be very bossy with other dogs but may live with a laid back neutered male companion if carefully introduced. She loves human company and likes to be busy busy. Lucy is vacs, spayed and chipped and her wriggly bum is just waiting for a garden of her very own to whizz round in!


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.

This is Fetita a cross brees female 1-2 yearsLovely Fetita is adored by all our staff and volunteers. She drives us all nuts because she is the most lovely, gorgeous cuddle bum of a dog but any strangers walk past her kennel and she tells them to go away! You are really not helping us find you a home Fatty! Her kennel mates come and go and Fatty gets left behind. All she needs is people to take the time to get to know her and you would have the most loving and loyal dog you could wish for. An adults only home would be best and she gets on well with other dogs but does like to be boss. She has shared with huge boys and small terriers and puppies. Fetita is spayed and chipped and has been with us far too long. It's time she had a home of her very own.

This gorgeous chap is Doru. He is around two years old, vacs, neutered and chipped and a lovely, friendly boy who would happily live with a spayed female companion. He has stunning markings and looks like a small collie cross. Doru is just waiting for a loving home with lots of time and patience to settle him in and make him one of the family


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.

Flossie is a lovely older girl around 8-10 years. She is a malamute cross and a gorgeous big cuddly bear of a dog who just loves fuss and attention from people but due to her size would be best with older teenage children. She would need to be an only dog as she is not so keen on her own kind! Flossie has so much love to give and she deserves a retirement home where she can enjoy some comforts. She loves her walks and needs to lose some weight. We are looking for a long term foster or adoption for a reduced fee for this lovely girl. She needs to be out of the kennels and enjoying life in her old age! She is vacs, spayed and chipped etc. Flossy a very large Husky Cross Female loves people but dislikes other dogs 

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 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.
