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.
My name is Bruno (don't laugh) and I'm a long haired chihuahua. I'm three years old and my owner brought me into BARK as I was fighting with my sister. I am quite a bossy little man with other dogs and would probably be best as an only dog. The folks at BARK have had me neutered to stop me being so er manly. They hope I will now calm down a bit and stop thinking I'm a pint sized pit-bull. I am ok with cats, chase em if they run but don't want to eat them. I'm not used to walking on a lead and prefer to be carried thank you very much so need new owners with lots of time to train me and not let me have my own way but make me use the little legs God gave me! I would like to live with someone who is at home a lot as I don't like being left and I will bark if my hoomans are gone a long time. I am vacs and chipped and just waiting for someone up for a chihuahua challenge
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.
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 gorgeous girly is Puffy. We think she has some Heeler/ Cattle Dog in her judging by her build and especially her stunning eyes. Puffy is in her middle years and super friendly. She is quite strong on the lead but better in a harness; otherwise she is a very laid back and easy going girl who loves to roll in the grass and potter around. She gets on really well with other dogs and will happily live with a neutered male. Puffy is spayed and chipped and currently getting her vaccinations. All she needs is a great 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.
This gorgeous girly is Brandy. She is super sweet and friendly, spayed vacs and chipped and seems to be some kind of spaniel/ pointer mix. Brandy loves to run and play and cuddle any humans who are kind to her- she is just waiting for her very own humans to adore.
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
This handsome dude is Danny. He has come in with his mate Charlie and is the shier one of the two but he loves our field and loves to run and play and is finding his paws. Danny was found as a stray very thin and had been eating garbage. He is now fighting fit and looking for a wonderful new home. He seems fine with other dogs and would live happily with a spayed female (or with his mate Charlie if anyone fancied two beautiful rescue tinkers in one go!). He is neutered, vacs and chipped and ready for a wonderful new home.
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.
Don't be deceived by the greying face- Mikki is still a lively pooch! He is neutered, vacs and chipped and looking for a great home. Mikki gets on well with female dogs and would love a spayed female companion. He is playful and friendly with most people but needs calm and respectful handling and cannot cope with children; if he is pulled about or treated roughly he will snap. He needs a home with doggy people who will treat him like a dog and read his body language and then he will be a great companion.
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
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?
Mara is a lovely older girl 7plus years who has had a tough life and yet still craves human affection. Mara must have had some rough treatment in the past as she panics when picked up and cries in fear. We are teaching her to walk in a harness and she is doing well but needs lots of patience and understanding. Once in our field she is a really happy girl and enjoys a good run around with the other dogs. She can be quite bossy though and would suit perhaps a confident neutered male larger than herself. She is small collie sized, vacs, spayed and chipped and waiting for that very special home, ideally adults only.
This girl is Maisie, a shy girl but very sweet and lovely once she trusts you. She gets on well with other dogs and would love a neutered male pooch companion. Maisie is spayed, vacs and chipped and just waiting for someone to love.
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 BIG boy (small pony) is Fram. He is a Rom Shep cross and his adoption through another rescue failed so he has come to us so we can find the right hoomans for the him. He is a little shy and nervous but very friendly and gentle and is coming out of his shell with us now and starting to play. He gets on well with female dogs and would love a spayed lady companion! Fram needs a secure garden with a 6ft fence as he is a big boy and can jump. He will also need hoomans with lots of time to spend bonding with him, training him and going for long walks. He would not suit being left alone for long periods. If you have the time and space for this beautiful boy come and meet him during our opening hours. He is only two years old and neutered, vacs and chipped.
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.
My name is Barney and I love to run! I am a super friendly medium sized playful pooch who will happily live with a spayed female and I share my kennel with my friend Lucy. I am neutered, vacs and chipped and ready to have fun so if you have a nice big garden and lots of time to take me for walks (and give me cuddles) then I am the pooch for you!
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 Lucy. She has some really unusual markings with lots of stripes! Lucy is medium sized, a little shy but very sweet and just needs a little time building her confidence in new situations. A confident neutered male pooch to play with in her new home would help her settle. Lucy is spayed, vacs and chipped and just waiting for a family of her own.
Saxon is an absolutely wonderful chap. He has a gentle, playful temperament and is such a gent. Saxon is 4-5 years old. He loves fuss and attention and to play with other dogs. The way he moves suggests some problems with his hips and he may have had a bump from a car in the past. We will be getting him checked over by our vet to make sure there is nothing we can do for him but a warm bed, good food and gentle exercise (and lots of cuddles) are probably the order of the day! Saxon is vacs, neutered and chipped..
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.
Destiny is a small sized neutered female approx four years old. She acts like a pup she is very sweet, wriggly and playful and she would love a similar sized neutered male playmate in her new home. Destiny is a little timid and shy but hasn't a bad bone in her body. She will need some lead training and will be best in a ruff wear three strap harness as she may panic and wriggle free of a standard harness. Destiny is a wonderful dog and would be the most loving companion she just needs time and patience.
Evie and her best pal Adam come as a pair and we want a home for them together. They survived as strays together, had puppies together, all their puppies died and these two managed to be rescued together and come to BARK together. We really want them to stay (yes you guessed it!) TOGETHER! They are sweet and loving pair of dogs. Evie is more bubbly and has a fantastic grin, Adam is quieter and calmer but loves a cuddle. They are both vacs, neutered and chipped and young adult pooches who deserve a great 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.
