Marmite is an approximately 3 year old Whippet cross who found herself on death row in the pound. She is predominantly Whippet in both her size and her character! Well, we are pleased to say those days are long behind her, she is fit as a fiddle and what a diva she has now become, Marmite is quite literally the best dog ever, I have come so close to keeping her myself, but she is far too good to join the rat pack permanently, I just know the perfect home is waiting patiently for a dog just like her!
Marmite will steal your bed, and your heart, she is strikingly beautiful and gets compliments wherever she goes which of course, she is happy to lap up! Marmite is a real couch potato of a dog, she is very quiet and doesn’t really seem to know how to be a dog, although she has just recently started to play with the other dogs here, and she certainly loves to snuggle with them!
She would love a family to play with her and keep her occupied. She loves a walk and loves to greet everyone she meets! She is house trained and non destructive – happy to be left snoozing on the sofa by herself, absolutely adores other dogs so WILL NEED TO live with a companion. Marmite walks perfectly on the lead, and really is an absolute pleasure! We feel Marmite would be best in an adult only home.
Marmite is a gorgeous happy little lady that so desperately needs a forever home and family to grow up with. She doesn’t seem to know much in the way of commands, but she is so easy going it doesn’t matter!
Tansy is a gorgeous Shih Tzu of approx 18 months old Shih Tzu who came into rescue when she was left unclaimed in the pound. When she was spayed it became apparent that she had been in pup but sadly these had died and been stuck inside her, the most likely reason she wasn’t reclaimed!
Tansy is a really sweet little lady that just craves love and cuddles! She needs a home that has experience of the breed and is aware of their health and grooming requirements. Tansy will need regular grooming as she is a non moulting breed. Tansy is a typical little lap dog. She loves nothing more than cuddles, and she will quite literally spend her entire day snuggled with you. She also likes to snuggle under the duvet with you at night.
Tansy absolutely loves a walk, and is loving experiencing new things and meeting new people. She loves to explore! Tansy is house trained and non destructive, She mixes fine with other dogs, would be happy to live with other dogs or would be equally happy as the only dog. She is a very happy little lady that just loves life. She is fine to be left for short periods as long as She has a bed to snuggle up in, and she is not destructive.
Tansy can live with children age 8 years plus. Tansy is a very sweet little dog, that is very low maintenance, that desperately wants a lap of her own to snuggle up on, can you offer her this?
On Tuesday 9th July Poor Millie was abandoned near to the rescue, left tied to a poo bin alone in the rain. We were heartbroken when we discovered her and upon closer inspection it became clear that she was in a bit of a mess. She was crawling with fleas, had long overgrown nails, broken teeth and was suffering with a nasty cough. After a full examination by our vet it was sadly revealed that Millie has mammary tumours with an x-ray revealing several possible masses in her chest. We will be repeating these x-rays in 2 weeks to confirm if this is definitely the case. At the moment Millie is receiving medication to help keep her comfortable and at this stage we do not know how long she will have. We are desperate to find Millie a long term foster home where she can live out the rest of her days being showered with love and attention as she should have always been.
Millie has a wonderful temperament despite everything she has been through, she is such a sweet, friendly girl and really is no trouble at all. Unfortunately she does not appear to like other dogs and so we are looking for a home where she will be the only pet. Due to her age we also feel she would be best suited to a quiet home free from young children with someone around for most of the day.
We will continue to support Millie whilst she is in a foster home and therefore it is important that she is local to the rescue so that she can meet regular appointments with our vet.
If you can help this special girl please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Gorgeous Gina is a Terrier cross who is small-medium sized and is 2 years old. She is in a shelter in Spain until she has a home to go to. Gina has beautiful markings, with a beautiful golden brown head, freckly legs and is white and golden on her body. Gina’s measurements are: Height 40cm; Length 40cm; Weight 10kg.
Gina appeared in an area surrounded by houses and a busy road, wandering around on a cold night, looking for someone who could take her home and save her. A girl was walking with her dog and found her. Gina approached and the girl could not leave her there. Back then she was only 5 months old, spent all this time in a foster home waiting for her adoption opportunity but it didn’t come. A change of circumstances made her come to the shelter and now Gina is really sad. We hope her photos and her story have touched your heart and she will be noticed now and can live the happy life she deserves.
Gina is very playful, active and affectionate. She is a cuddle monster and loved her foster humans. She also loves toys and balls, running around and sniffing everything. She is a very smart girl and is a fast learner. She is a beautiful dog that only wants to be loved. Gina is very sociable and affectionate with the other dogs in the shelter, regardless of gender, shape or size. She loves spending time and playing with children and we will home her with children over 8 years old.
Gina has been cat tested – she doesn’t pay any attention to them, but she would need careful introductions with any new cat and it would help if they were dog savvy. Gina walks well on the lead, although sometimes pulls at first but soon stops, she is house trained, and is quiet in the car. Gina is neutered, fully vaccinated, chipped and has a passport. Homecheck and adoption fees apply.
Please meet 12 year old male Dottie the Dalmation. Dottie was handed in by her former owners as they could no longer keep her. Dottie has been spayed, microchipped and has restarted her vaccines as they had lapsed. She has also been wormed and flead. Dottie is a gorgeous girl who is happy to go for a stroll and then have a long nap! She enjoys her food and cuddles and is fine to live with children. Dottie has also lived with cats.
Dottie is initially a little timid around other dogs so would prefer to live without other dogs or with a canine friend who isn’t too bouncy and ‘in your face’. Dottie is house trained but she does sometimes wet her bed when she is asleep. This is easily managed with her waterproof washable bed, some pads and washing her blankets. We all get old at some point and I really do not feel this should prevent her from finding a family home – she is so confused at why she is kennels. We have started her on medication for the incontinence which hopefully will completely cure it.
Dottie would be suited for someone who has lots of time but doesn’t want to do lots of walking! She is calm and doesn’t bark and we are told she is fine to be left for a few hours in the car.
Flint is a 10 month old male Cross-Breed. Flint super young boy with lots of fun energy loves his walks and playing with other dogs and has quickly learnt recall. Has the potential to be good at agility or Cani cross certainly has the legs for it.
Initially shy with new people but you can soon gain his trust. Can be an only dog if you have time to burn off his energy or equally would be a great partner in crime for another dog who loves to bounce and play.
Flint needs an experienced dog owner and a kind but firm approach, routine and structure. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Fluffy is a 4 month old Spaniel cross Retriever who will be medium plus size when fully grown. She is fostered in Hingham, Norfolk. Fluffy is adorable puppy who is full of fun. She’s learning to play with toys, loves other dogs and into everything! Before coming to the U.K. she had never been out walking, she’s taken to it really well and loves it. Fluffy needs to be socialised with lots of people and dogs as this is all new to her! She would love to part of a busy family with another dog, with her being a puppy she is young enough to learn about cats and small furies.
Who ever gets to adopt her will be very lucky. Our adoption fee is £250. They are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless they are too young). If you are interested please message or call between 9am and 6pm

Meet new Boy Samson who is a lovely boy, of nearly 4 years old male Cross-Breed, just retired from racing. He is very shy and nervous at the moment but I’m sure in time he will come out of his shell.
