Not all of the dogs we rescue are straightforward. Some of them are a little zany, zippy, zappy and zoomy and need a special type of home.
The beginning of 2020 has found us with a whole bunch of these quirky characters and we are in desperate need of some very particular homes for them.
They are all gorgeous, all worthy of a home offer and will all make the most wonderful companion for the right person. We will provide any new owner with a full training plan and ongoing support to ensure the very best start for these dogs in their new homes.

Here’s a ‘rogue’s gallery’ of our special dogs, along with a list of their particular requirements!
Berry is a sweet and affectionate male greyhound. He could live with another greyhound or lurcher and with support could make friends with other breeds of dog as well. He has a simple training plan to follow and is easy to manage on walks.
He needs a rural home because he is scared of traffic. He is a playful chap and could live with older children.
Finley could live with another greyhound or lurcher, and can make friends with other dogs with support, although will need watching carefully around smaller breeds.
Finley has a simple socialisation plan to follow. He is laid back and affectionate indoors and loves the sofa! He could live with older children.
Wilbur is a bull lurcher and has been with us a long time now and really needs a home of his own. He needs to be an only dog, although he is friendly with most dogs when out and about but can be scared of some.
Wilbur is a bit of a sensitive soul and can be anxious about things. He will need a home used to young and bouncy bull breeds. Wilbur has a training plan and a special diet and is housetrained and travels well in the car.
This loveable, affectionate, intelligent and playful dog doesn’t like to be left alone at home and will need an adult-only home.
Frank is another long-stayer who is in need of a home of his own. This big, male greyhound needs to be the only dog in the home. He can make friends with other dogs when out and about but does need some support.
Frank has a simple training plan and is a sweet and loving dog who could live with older children.
We think Frank has been overlooked because he has hip dysplasia.
This lovely lurcher is currently in a foster home and so is used to a home environment. He is also used to his fosterers being out at work.
Bilbo needs to be the only dog in the home and also needs support around other dogs when out on walks, but he can make friends with gradual introductions.
Bilbo could live with older children and teenagers and is house trained and good inside the house. He is a playful, happy and loving dog and we would love to see him settled in a home of his own.
IF YOU CAN HELP please do get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 03000 125 125. Our specialist team will be happy to talk to you about the needs of these dogs, and others in our care. We offer post-homing support for the lifetime of the dog, so you will always have someone to come to for advice and help should you need it.
You can find all of these dogs, plus many of the others in our care on our ‘Meet the hounds‘ pages.
Often we have dogs available for homing that we can’t publicise on our website and social media pages, so it is always worth getting in touch with us as we might have the right dog for you hidden out of sight!
