We would like to introduce you to our new boy Lukie. He has come from a home where he was a much loved member of the family, but unfortunately, due to his owners deteriorating health and personal circumstances, they were unable to meet Lukie's needs and as heartbreaking as it was for them, they knew Lukie deserved a better life than they were able to offer him.
Lukie was 3yrs old in January, he is a lurcher type and is a sensitive boy who is very loving once he knows you, he adores Kerry at the kennels, and is adjusting slowly but surely to kennel life. Lukie would love a home with someone around most if the time who can bring him up to scratch with his training, due to his owners poor health and having to shield he hasnt been out and experienced a lot of what the world has to offer so a patient home to help him experience things and gain confidence.  A secure garden is a must for him as he enjoys time outside.  He loves it in the Paddock at the kennels, and a home with older children as he has never encountered children in his previous home.
Lukie lived with other dogs previously but was bullied by one of them he never had a go back, his best friend was a chihuahua.....unfortunately Lukie thinks he's the size of one and will try to get on your knee for a cuddle!!
If you think you can offer Lukie an active home and help him become the fabulous dog we know he has the potential to be

Other information:

 

Millie has come to us from the stray kennels after her owner sadly passed away.  Millie is a 9yr old patterdale and is a happy little dog. 

 

Millie needs an experienced female owner as she does not like men at all.  She needs someone who will be around most of the day and she needs to be the only pet in the household.  When out on a walk Millie can be reactive to both people and dogs, therefore, she would require a muzzle when out in public.  Millie would love to have the company of only one person. One on one she is a fantastic little companion, but it appears her life has been rather sheltered.  She would not be happy in a home with lots of visitors and she would  need to be kept away from visitors as she will be very protective of her owner.  

 

Millie would make a fantastic companion for someone and would be good company for a lady living on their own.

Any behaviour problems: Can be reactive to dogs.

Other information:

 Colin was found as a stray and taken to the pound.  Unfortunately, his owners did not come for him despite being contacted so he has ended up at Willow.  

 

Colin is a terrier, possibly crossed with a pomeranian due to his fluffy fur and is a very very busy dog.  He is super friendly towards people, has no manners whatsoever and will jump up for a fuss.  He is incredibly giddy, happy, and loves the sound of his own voice.  

 

Colin is hit and miss with dogs and has typical little dog syndrome.  He is very barky when meeting new dogs and weighing in at only 7kg, he thinks he is as big as a Rottweiler.  He will need an owner who can help teach him some manners.

 

Colin needs an active home with someone around most of the day.  Just because he is small, doesn't mean he will be content with a 30 minute walk a day.  Colin definitely has the terrier gene and loves to be on the go.  

 

Colin needs a home where he can be the only pet and have all of the attention.  He will need ongoing training and someone who can give him lots of exercise and stimulation.  

 

If you are interested in offering Colin a home, please complete the adoption form below.  We kindly ask you to only complete the form if you are serious about offering him a home and have discussed this with all members of the household.  The adoption form will give us all the information we need to ensure you are a perfect match.  Please answer the questions carefully.

 

As Colin has only just arrived with us, his assessment will not be completed until he has been fully vaccinated.  As a result, we will not be responding to applications until after 15th January.

 

 

DOG ADOPTION FORM

 

Due to the high demand of dogs at the moment, we are currently receiving a large number of applications for each dog.  We try to reply to every application, however, the rescue is run soleby by volunteers, around work and family commitments.  Therefore, we will not respond to applications where forms are not submitted correctly.  (Please see bullet points below).

 

The adoption form will give us all the information we need to ensure you are a perfect match for the dog you are applying for.  We have no blanket rules for rehoming.  We will consider all homes for dogs and will match dogs up to a home we feel will suit them best.  Not all dogs are suitable for all home types and this is why we specifically ask for ages of adults and children in the household, as well as how much exercise and time you can realistically dedicate to a dog each day.   Please answer the questions carefully and give as much detail as you can.  The more details and information we receive, the better.

 

Please think carefully about whether you can commit the time to a dog and can afford the relevant costs that come with dog ownership (food, veterinary treatment, grooming, regular flea / worming treatment etc), as well as speaking to all members of your household about this decision before completing the form. Please only complete the form if you are serious about offering a dog a home. 

 

Please read EACH of the below points BEFORE applying, to ensure your form is submitted correctly. 

 

Due to the large amount of applications we are receiving for each dog, we will not be able to consider applications where the below points have not been adheared to, and unfortunately, these will be deleted without a response to comply with GDPR regulations.

 

  • Please read and answer the questions carefully.  Do not use autofill when completing the form as this will only partially complete your address.  We specifically need your full address and names and ages of ALL members of the household to be able to consider your application.
  • Please only complete the form if you live within 30 miles of our kennels in Sheffield.  We are unable to rehome more than 30 miles away.  
  • Unless we have specifically requested your details, please only complete the form for a specific dog we have in our care.  Any forms for 'any dog' or a dog we do not have available, will be not be responded to and will be deleted to comply with GDPR regulations.
  •  Please give as much information as you can when completing the form. 

 

Dogs who are 'Reserved' on their profile above, have already been matched with homes and are currently on their temporary foster basis pending adoption.  You can still apply for reserved dogs, however, your details will be kept on a waitlist and will be deleted once the dog has been rehomed. We are unable to reply to applicants of 'reserved' dogs.  If we have 'Closed' applications for a dog, please do not complete a form.  This will mean we have been inundated with offers of homes and will have numerous homes on a waitlist for that dog.  Any additional forms received for dogs that have been 'closed' will be deleted to comply with GDPR rules.  

 

Please ensure you read and agree to our terms and conditions of adoption in the below attachment before applying.
