Say hello to Peaches, a very sad abuse case that has touched everyones hearts here at the rescue.

Peaches spent her whole life tied to a short chain, starved and beaten day in, day out - she is 8 years old - 8 years she has spent enduring a living hell and now she is finally free. She has since been nursed back to health and has gained lots of good weight (she came in at 8kg , now weighs 13.5 and should slowly end up reaching 15).

Even with all the suffered abuse Peaches is not aggressive and is very gentle and loving once she knows you. She can be shy when first meeting someone and when moved to new places but once she feels safe she is happy to receive affection and love. Peaches loves the company of other dogs and cats and can easily live in a multi-pet home but due to her being starved she is a little protective around other dogs at dinner time so will need to be fed separately (this behaviour can of course change in time once she knows she's receiving regular food) We would suggest a covered, open door crate for Peaches to have as a "Safe den" where she can have hear meals and retreat to if she needs some time out. Peaches is generally a very calm dog and has a lot of love to give. If she feels scared she doesn't show aggression she just finds a small space to hide in until she feels safe and then she comes out to explore when she's ready. Once she knows you she will be your best friend and we feel an experienced home can turn Peaches into a very confident pooch without too much trouble.

Adopters wanting Peaches MUST have had a shy rescue before and have no resident children under 10 as we think young children will spook her. She comes with 24hr telephone support form our trainer and plenty of help from the team here at the rescue. It Is important that adopters also understand when Peaches moves to a new home this may set her back a little and she will need lots of time to adjust, not be rushed to be taken out for a walk and just generally be allowed time to get to feel safe in a new house with new people.

She is darling girl who just wants to be loved and just needs needs that right home to nurture her confidence more (something that is hard to do in rescue kennels, we have taken her as far as we can now). Peaches really deserves this chance.

Please get in touch if you can be her happy ever after. She is in our Euro shelter and ready to travel direct to a UK forever home.

Hope some nice person adopts her. She needs a loving home

Beautiful girl. Hope she can get her forever home soon 🙏🙏🐶

How people can do this is beyond me 😔 to be so cruel 😢 I hope she gets the life she truly deserves

Bless her poor little heart ❤️ hopefully she finds the perfect family & has all the love in the world to make her forget her bad beginnings ❤️😘

Meet 4 year old Inukai, a really lovely boy that found himself in a killing station where he was ever so sad. This chap has been in kennels for 3 years now and we would really love to see him with an owner and a warm home to sleep in.

Inukai is a really lovely boy who enjoys the company of other dogs and seems to enjoy the attention from every handler the enters the kennels. We have no idea how a boy so lovely ended up in rescue for so long.

This chap is 20-25kg and around 50-60cm tall. We have best evaluated his temperament in kennels as he seems like an all round happy go lucky boy.

He requires an adopter who understands he has spent 3 years in kennels so will need plenty of time to adjust to home life and not be rushed to become an immediate companion animal. Inukai can be cat tested on request and is in our Euro shelter ready to travel direct to a UK forever home.

Please get in touch if this is the boy for you. Please note adopters must have had a rescue dog before to apply for Inukai.

Meet 4 year Suzie,

A complete cuddle monster originally rescued as a stray puppy with severe mange (see photo). Poor little Suzie nearly died but luckily due to a very skilled vet team she made a full recovery by the age of 8 months. Suzie is currently in home boarding with our trainer and looking for an experienced home.

She is fantastic with children and adults and really likes to play and receive affection. She has been absolutely fine with visitors in the home. Suzie requires an experienced adopter due to her insecurity around other dogs…she is absolutely fine with the five she in foster with now but that is because she has gotten to know them, so unless you are an experienced dog owner/handler and are willing to give her time to integrate with your dogs then she would be better as the only dog. ..our trainer had no bother bringing her into his five dog home but only because he is calm, firm and takes no nonsense.

Suzie is house trained, lead trained, crate trained and isn’t a big girl (14kg) . She had a home before now but they did not want to work with her so gave her back to the rescue after three years and it broke poor Suzies heart. She has now received all the training she can and is a much better balanced dog. We would like to see her with an experienced person so that she does not regress to any old behaviours. She listens to correction exceptionally well so anyone adopting Suzie MUST be willing to correct her if required to ensure she continues going the right way.

Anyone interested in Suzie will get to meet her with our trainer and if you have a dog of your own introductions will be done carefully and correctly. Adopters need to be mindful that due to her not being consistent with all new dogs she is not an off lead pooch in busy dog areas.

This little girl battled through so much in her young life and has come so far and really does have so much to give we would LOVE to see her in a family that understands her and will love her forever. She truly deserves this.

Please get in touch if this is the girl for you.

**Indoor Cat**

Meet 7 year old Spartan,

An unbelievably affectionate cat who will sit on your lap all day long asking for cuddles and kisses. Spartan can live with children and dogs but is FIV positive meaning he should be either the only cat or with other cats with FIV (he likes other cats too) . FIV is not at all as scary as it may sound and nearly all cats go on to live to a very good age with no medication and if medication is required in very old age it is inexpensive. Feline FIV CANNOT be transmitted to humans or dogs.

Back to Spartan -he is a LARGE lad weighing in at around 6kg! He would honestly make someone the perfect companion cat, he has so much love and joy to bring to any home. Spartan is fully house trained and has no other health issues, is fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.

Please get in touch if you would like some further info on FIV or are interested in homing this lovely lad ! He is in our euro shelter and ready to travel direct to a UK forever home.
