Needing a Home

These are the dogs that are currently in our care and who are looking for their forever home.  These dogs can be viewed at  (B.A.R.C) - Wath Kennels, Station Road, Wath-upon-Dearne, S63 7DG

Not all of the dogs will be housed at the kennels as we do use foster homes too.  If you see a dog you like and it is in a foster home, please contact us and we will arrange for you to meet them.

Our adoption fee is £130 and all dogs will be neutered, microchipped, flead and wormed before adoption and this is all included in the adoption fee. They will also come with 4 weeks free insurance.  Full support is given after adoption, so don't be afraid to call us about anything at anytime.

If you are interested in any of our dogs please give us a call or alternatively download our Adoption Form and send it back to us via email.

  • Can be homed with cats: No
  • Can be homed with with small animals such as rabbits: No
  • Can be homed with children: no young children due to Alfie's excitement.
  • Does he have any toileting problems. e.g Not house broken: May need to learn house training again due to length of time spent in the kennels.
  • Does he have any other behaviour problems: Alfie has been undersocialised with other dogs and as a result when he see's other dogs as he gets frustrated if he can't get to them to say Hello and will paddy like a spoilt child.
  • Does he have any medical problems: No
  • Period of time he can be left alone: no more than a couple of hours
  • What type of home is he looking for: Alfie needs a home with no cats or small furries and where he will get tonnes of exercise and socialisation so learns how to behave when greeting other dogs. 
  • Exercise requirements: at least 1hr per day

 

Other information:
Alfie came to us from the pound where he was handed in by his owners.  He is around 3yrs old and a bright boy, which is half his trouble he knows what he wants!! Alfie has issues when he see's other dogs as he gets frustrated if he can't get to them to say Hello and will paddy like a spoilt child. Alfie is good around children but again we feel he'd be better suited to older children.  When he is 1 on 1 he is a fantastic boy.

Alfie needs a home with no cats and where he will get tonnes of exercise and socialisation so learns how to behave when greeting other dogs.  We will fully support anybody who would like to offer Alfie a home, he is so sad in kennels and this adds to his frustration when he gets out.

Please feel free to bob down to the kennels to meet him.

in a foster home

 

Questions about Monty...

  • Can be homed with cats: Yes
  • Can be homed with with small animals such as rabbits: No
  • Can be homed with children: no young children due to Monty's nervousness.
  • Does he have any toileting problems. e.g Not house broken: fully house trained
  • Does he have any other behaviour problems: very sensitive and can be very timid
  • Does he have any medical problems: No
  • Period of time he can be left alone: no more than a couple of hours
  • What type of home is he looking for: He needs a calm, quiet home with a kind, patient owner who can give him lots of love and allow him to come out of his shell at his own pace.
  • Exercise requirements: at least 1hr per day

 

Other information:

Monty is a lovely lad who has recently returned to our care due to a change in circimstances. His owners are absolutely devastated at the descision.

Monty first came to us back in 2013 as a very scared, timid pup. He had not had the best starts in life and had no trust in people at all. He went straight into a foster home with other dogs where he gained some confidence.

Monty is a very sensitive dog and can be very timid. He needs a calm home with a kind, patient owner who can give him lots of love and allow him to come out of his shell at his own pace. He is ok with dogs, but if he was to go to a home with another dog, they must also be calm, well balanced and confident.

Monty is not a difficult dog to look after, he just needs someone who can be the leader and in return, he will be a very faithful companion. He is so loving and loves to play and run!

SKYE

(RESERVED)

German Shepherd x Collie

(approx 4-5yrs old)

at B.A.R.C - (Wath Kennels)

 

Questions about Skye...

 

  • Is she used to other dogs: We’re unsure if she’s lived with another dog but she has been ok with all dogs she has met.  She has spent a short term foster placement in a home with another dog without any issues.
  • Is she used to cats: Yes, Skye has lived with cats previously.
  • Is she used to small animals such as rabbits: unknown
  • Is she used to children: Skye is very good with Children.  Shes very gentle.
  • Does she have any toileting problems. e.g Not house broken: She has been housetrained but now she is in kennels she may need a little reminder training once in a home.
  • Does she have any other behaviour problems: Nervous (see information below)
  • Does she have any medical problems: no
  • Period of time he can be left alone: no more than a couple of hours
  • Is she crate trained: no
  • What type of home is she looking for: A loving owner who can take the lead and not give in to her tantrums (see below for further information).
  • Exercise requirements: approximately 1hr per day
  • Dietary requirements: no special diet but she is currently losing weight due to her being obese.  Due to her breed, she needs to keep her weight to a normal level.

 

Other information: Skye has been returned to us after her owner couldn’t meet her needs.  Skye is a rather nervous dog and can be quite stubborn, for example, she will have a tantrum if she does not want to go for a walk.  There is no malice in this, just a lot of backing up and throwing herself around trying to wriggle out of her lead.  If you are firm with her and do not give in, then this is half of the battle.  Since we have been training her with lots of positive reinforcement she has come on very well but she will try this behaviour with any new person so we expect her to try this with her potential new owner. 

 

She is very nervous of loud bangs (as are quite a few dogs) so any potential owner must be aware of this, as she will be distressed around bonfire season.

 

Skye is a very loving dog but she does have the tendency to become very clingy.  Her new owner will need to be firm and put plenty of boundaries in place.  She can be destructive if left in a room on her own whilst you are in the house so again, her new owner would have to be firm with this to help stop this behaviour. She hasn’t shown signs of being destructive if left in the home on her own.

 

We will provide support to any new owner with the training and settling in of Skye.  

 

An adoption fee of £130 will be payable.  Skye is neutered, fully vaccinated and micro chipped and will be up to date with flea and worming treatment before being rehomed.  This is all included in the adoption fee

BILL

(RESERVED)

Lurcher

(approx 5-6yrs old)

at B.A.R.C - (Wath Kennels)

 

Questions about Bill...

 

  • Is he used to other dogs: He is a little unsocialised with regards to playing with other dogs.  If he goes to a home with another dog the other dog will need to be calm but playful and show Bill clear signals so as to avoid any confusion. 
  • Is he used to cats: Bill has not been cat tested.
  • Is he used to small animals such as rabbits: Bill has had a quick meeting with a rabbit in a hutch.  He had a sniff and walked away.
  • Is he used to children: Bill can be nervous and very playful so a home with older children would be best.
  • Does he have any toileting problems. e.g Not house broken: Bill has been for a sleepover at a fosterers and asked to go out to the toilet during the day.  There were a couple of accidents through the night but this can be sorted quite quickly.
  • Does he have any other behaviour problems: Nervous (see information below)
  • Does he have any medical problems: no
  • Period of time he can be left alone: no more than a couple of hours
  • Is he crate trained: no
  • What type of home is he looking for: A home with our without another dog.  Bill will adore any new owner.  He is very playful so will need an active home.
  • Exercise requirements: approximately 1hr per day
  • Dietary requirements: no special diet.

 

Other information: Bill came to us from the pound so we have no history on him. He is very nervous in kennels but once in a home environment he is a completely different dog.  He can be wary of strangers but this is only nerves and if given a bit of time he will come around.  This can be sorted with lots of positive reinforcement and repetition when meeting strangers.  Bill is ok with dogs but can be very playful.  If he goes to a home with another dog, the other dog needs to be confident, calm but also playful.  He has met rabbits in a hutch and wasn't bothered but he has not been cat tested.  A home with older children would be best due to Bill's being timid but also playful.

 

An adoption fee of £130 will be payable.  Bill will be neutered once in a home environment. He will also be fully vaccinated and micro chipped and will be up to date with flea and worming treatment before being rehomed.  This is all included in the adoption fee

MAVIS

(RESERVED)

Terrier Cross

(approx 4-5yrs old)

in a foster home

 

Questions about Mavis...

 

  • Is she used to other dogs: Yes. She is currently in a foster home with another female terrier.
  • Is she used to cats: Mavis has not been cat tested
  • Is she used to small animals such as rabbits: unknown
  • Is she used to children: Mavis is very good with children.
  • Does she have any toileting problems. e.g Not house broken: Mavis is fully house trained.
  • Does she have any other behaviour problems: Nervous (see information below)
  • Does she have any medical problems: no (see information below)
  • Period of time he can be left alone: no more than a couple of hours
  • Is she crate trained: Yes
  • What type of home is she looking for: A loving home, with our without another dog.
  • Exercise requirements: approximately 1hr per day
  • Dietary requirements: no special diet.

 

Other information: Mavis came to us straight from the dog warden after being hit by a car.  She had injuries to her jaw where the skin had degloved and needed to be stitched back.  After she had served her 7 days and no owner came forward, she became a Willow dog and was fostered by Aunty Sylvia.

 

Since then she has been to the vets a couple of times for wound checks and has been no problem.  Mavis is timid and very fearful of men but this will be worked on by Aunty Sylvia and Uncle Mick. 

 

During her ordeal and treatment she had never shown any aggression at all, she has just let the vet staff do what was necessary with no fuss or resistance.

 

Mavis will make a fantastic companion, although timid of some men, she can be very affectionate and loving. Mavis gets on brilliantly with Poppy (Aunty Sylvia's Willow dog) and is playful. She walks nicely on a lead and loves her cage....it is her safe space when she feels worried she takes herself off into her cage and comes out in her own time, the door is always open so she can please herself.

 

Mavis loves food!

 

Mavis has met Aunty Sylvia's great granchildren and will happily and gently take treats from them but then goes in her cage out of the way so a home with older or grown up children will suit Mavis.

 

An adoption fee of £130 will be payable.  Skye is neutered, fully vaccinated and micro chipped and will be up to date with flea and worming treatment before being rehomed.  This is all included in the adoption fee
