Questions about Earl

 

Dogs size: Large

Can be homed with other dogs: Still under assessment 
Can be homed with cats: No
Can be homed with children: still under assessment 
House Trained: May need house training due to being in kennels
Any behaviour problems: Still under assessment 
Any medical problems: No.

Type of home: A home with someone around most of the day. 

Exercise requirements: At least 60 mins per day.

 

Other information:

 Earl has come to us recently from the pound. He's a lovely lad and travels really well in the car. He can be quite vocal in the kennels. He can also be very bouncy when excited, therefore a home with no small children. 
 

Due to his breed, and the fact he has some marks on his nose indicating he has been worked in the past, a home with no cats or small furries. 
 

Earl is still having his vaccinations the moment, therefore, until he is fully vaccinated we're unsure what he is like with other dogs. however, he has shown no reactivity to other dogs he has seen at the kennels or vets. 
 

once he has been fully assessed, which will take another few weeks, we will have more information on the exact type of home he needs.  
 

If you would like to offer Earl a home, please complete the adoption form below. 

Millie

Patterdale Terrier
(9yrs Old) 

 

Millie needs a very specific type of home.  Please only apply for Millie if you feel you can meet all of the below requirements in the description.

 

Questions about Millie

 

Dogs size: Small

Can be homed with other dogs: No
Can be homed with cats: No
Can be homed with children: No
House Trained: Millie has come from a home but may need refresher training due to spending time in kennels
Any behaviour problems: Needs an adult only home with 1 female owner.  Must have a large, fully enclosed garden for exercise as Millie becomes highly reactive and stressed on walks, so can only go for short walks.
Any medical problems: No.
Period of time can be left alone: No more than a couple of hours.
Type of home: A home with someone around most of the day. 
Exercise requirements: At least 1hr a day.

 

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. 

 

 

Marshall

Reserved

Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Collie
(3 years old) 

 

Questions about Marshall

 

Dogs size: Medium

Can be homed with other dogs: Yes
Can be homed with cats: No
Can be homed with children: Yes, children over 10yrs
House Trained: Yes
Any behaviour problems: Still under assessment
Any medical problems: No.
Period of time can be left alone: No more than a couple of hours
Type of home: Active home with someone around most of the day.  
Exercise requirements: At least 2hrs a day.

 

Other information:

 

Marshall has been returned to us once again after being placed out into 4 different homes.  He is once again in his foster home and has been there for a little over 6wks now.  We have not rushed to put him up for adoption because we have been waiting on him displaying the behaviours that he keeps getting returned for so I can work on them........We're still waiting!


Marshall has been tried in 4 different homes, different situations with other dogs, as an only dog we just can't seem to get it right for him, he has displayed the same behaviour in all 4 homes.  He becomes vocal and disruptive when he doesn't get enough attention.  However, this behaviour does not manifest in his foster home and he isn't the centre of attention there.


In his foster home, Marshall has very clear rules and boundaries.  He is fabulous with other dogs and he loves EVERYBODY!  He has recently been tried at agility classes and he took to it like a duck to water.  

Marshall is a lovely boy, he is happy in his foster home but if the perfect home was out there, that would be fantastic. Someone who is active and retired he'd love a doggy brother or sister or two.

 

  Unfortunately, we will not consider homes where people work from home as, although at home through the day, Marshall will cause disruption.  He has already been tried in a couple of homes where people have worked from home and he has been returned due to this.

 

Please fill in and submit the application form on our website, if you feel you can offer Marshall the home he needs. He does need further training and would love an owner who is interested in agility!

 

 

Roxy

Reserved

Staffy x Boxer
(2yrs old approx)

 

Questions about Roxy

 

Dogs size: Medium

Can be homed with other dogs: No
Can be homed with cats: No
Can be homed with children: No (see below)
House Trained: Yes
Any behaviour problems: Can be reactive to dogs
Any medical problems: No.
Period of time can be left alone: 2 to 3 hours
Type of home: An adult only home with a garden of at least 6ft in height.
Exercise requirements: At least 1hr a day.

 

Other information:

 

Roxy is an amazing, loving dog who loves to cuddle on the sofa.  She is very treat motivated and absolutely loves carrots.  She is fully house trained and can be left on her own for 2 to 3hrs at a time without any issues.  She loves playing tug with her rope and is a brilliant jumper when fetching her ball.  She does require a home with a garden with a fence or wall at least 6ft high.  She also needs an adult only home with no other pets.  She loves people and is ok with kids although, in a home environment, she does feel a little nervous around children, which is why she needs an adult only home.  She is well trained but does require some lead training. She can be reactive to dogs so does require some training with this so she would be better suited to someone who has experience with reactive dogs.  Roxy is a bit of a sun worshipper and farts like a good un, so potential owners need to be aware of this :D

 

If you think you can offer the perfect home for Roxy, please complete the adoption form below.  

 

 

 

 

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.
