Pippa is a special girl who needs a special home, with a CONSISTENT approach by EVERYONE in the household.
She can be a loving, cuddly girl, but she can also be vocal and appear aggressive if she doesn’t know or like you. We have seen her bond superbly with staff at the kennels, so we feel sure she will blossom in the right environment with someone who will make the effort to fully understand her.
She is only 3 years old so she still has lots of energy, but when I have walked her round a secure field she was relaxed and wanted to play. She has now met me a few times and she seems to have accepted me, but I try to keep eye contact to an absolute minimum; I let her come to me and do not make a big fuss when she does; and I allow her to sniff my hand, but I don't reach out to stroke her. These are all actions which I follow when I meet any dog – especially for the first time!
If you think you meet the criteria needed to give Pippa a loving home, please contact me (Karen) via email (email@example.com) or by phone (07712 669707) and I will be happy to discuss Pippa’s situation further. Please note she is currently in North Buckinghamshire, and you will need to be prepared to visit her to let her get to know you.
Bruce is a 2yr old male.
He is VERY lively and quite boisterous. He is vaccinated, microchipped, un neutered (this will need to be done once he has been rehomed). He has no health problems as known. He is very full on when he has met other dogs, so for a long time he has been kept away from them. He doesn’t like cats. Due to his boisterousness he couldn’t be rehomed where there are small children. He lives with older children so ideally over 12’s. He is crate trained . If left to his own devices he can become destructive through boredom. He does live with another young boxer but we are looking for a home where he will be the only dog at the moment. This will enable the new owners to go back to basics with him and calm the jumping up and really work on his socialization and recall.
Ideally a home where someone is there the majority of the time, as he is spending a lot of time crated, is what he is looking for.
He is currently in South Somerset.
If you would like to know more about Bruce and think you might be the right home for him then please contact:

Stan is an 18month bobtail male.
Stan doesn’t seem to have an off switch and is very boisterous.
He is vaccinated, microchipped and no known health problems. He doesn’t like cats. Due to his over excitement and boisterousness he will not be rehomed where there are small children. He does live with children but only over 12’s. On the very rare occasion that he has met other dogs, he is so very full on that it has resulted in problems. Stan doesn’t have any recall and so the new owners will need to go back to basics with him teaching him socialization, recall and calmness. We are looking for a home where someone is there the majority of the day and where he will be the only dog at the moment. Despite living with another dog he is spending a lot of time crated and on his own.
Stan is in South Somerset.
If you think you have the time and patience to give Stan that special home and would like more information please contact:

Eros is a lovely, sturdy, brindle boy
Age: nearly 6 years old
Vaccinations: Up to date
Travels in car: fine
Cats: no, will chase them.
Dogs: Could live with a placid female.
Dogs outside the home: When off lead he plays well with most small dogs and female dogs but not males.
On lead: Initially pulls, in an excited way but calms down. Will lunge towards some dogs, usually males and will sometimes bark.
Recall: Good, unless there are other dogs around.
Children: 12+. Eros likes children but because he is very strong and boisterous we think he may prove too much for younger ones.
Eros is a typical boisterous boxer boy who is coming into rescue because of the failing health of his elderly owner. He will benefit from some attention and exercise which it has not always been possible to give him in recent time.
If you think you would like to offer Eros a home, please contact Lorraine Harvey on 07760 178529 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Toffee is just over a year old. She is a lovely natured dog, is well socialised and is good with other dogs. Unfortunately, she does not appear have an 'off' switch, so she's on the go all of the time and has become destructive in her home, even when her current owner is in the house.
Whilst her constant running around may be funny to watch and experience for a short time, she needs a home with someone to show her how to relax - she's in a permanent state of alert!
We think she may benefit from being in a home with an older, calm dog to guide her, but this is not essential. The key is to find a home with someone who is able to teach her that it’s OK to put her paws up and have a rest sometimes 😴
If you have the time and patience that will be needed to help Toffee, please contact Karen Kerby, either via email (email@example.com) or phone (07712 669707)
She is fully vaccinated and will need to be neutered after her next season.
As per our adoption policy, a home-check will be required.
