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.

Other information:

Monty is a lovely lad who was 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 is calm and confident and return, he will be a very faithful companion. He is so loving and loves to play and run!  Monty is a very large dog, around the size of a small Great Dane! He will need a home with land so that he has somewhere secure to be able to be off lead.

Other information:

 

Hugo came to us from the pound where he had spent over 4 weeks there.  Hugo is a lovely little chap who loves his toys and loves to play.  Hugo also loves food and as a result likes to have be given space when eating and does not like to be pestered.  It is for this reason why he cannot be rehomed with children or other dogs/cats. When out on a walk he is absolutely fine with dogs and will happily walk with them.  He loves a cuddle and is a good little traveller too.  Hugo is looking for a quiet home where he can spend time exploring a garden, a couple of lovely walks a day and a nice lap to sleep on.

 

Hugo is at the kennels where he can be viewed everyday between 11am and 3pm.

Other information:

 
Hunter came to us in very sad circumstances.  A member of the public witnessed him being thrown from a van on a country lane. Abandoned in the dark and cold. Fortunately for Hunter, the lovely people who witnessed him being dumped, along with a couple of dog walkers who joined in to help, spent the next two and and half hours trying to catch him. He was understandably bewildered and terrified but they didn't give up and eventually managed to get him to their home where he spent the night before coming to us the next day.  The dog warden tried to get in contact with his owners but they didn't return the dog wardens call.  As a result, Hunter has now become a Willow Dog.
 
Hunter is a Saluki cross and is just over a year old. Despite still only being a young boy he is calm and placid, such a gentle soul. Hunter is a little scared of other dogs but has shown no aggression at all, he simply just backs away from them.  Cats and small furries may be an issue due to his breed but we have not properly cat tested him yet.  He has seen a rabbit and tried to playbow but then was a little fixated on the rabbits in the vets when he was there for his vaccinations.  Hunter has been very gentle with the children he has met.
 
Hunter is at the kennels where he can be viewed everyday between 11am and 3pm.

Other information:

 
Eric came to us from the pound after he had been in there for some weeks.  He was very sad and stressed when he arrived.  Eric does not cope well in kennels. 
 
Due to Eric being stressed we have not dog / cat tested him yet as he has too much pent up energy, however, he didn't show any interest in the pound to the dogs in the kennels next to him.  We will assist any new ower with introductions to new dogs if required. 
 
Eric has possibly been hit in the past as he does cower at times,  he also has had no lead training so does pull quite a bit.  He is very strong on the lead. 
 
Eric is a little bit of a water baby and loves to have his belly rub.  Any new owner MUST be able to provide sufficient belly rubbing duties on a daily basis!
 
Eric is at the kennels where he can be viewed everyday between 11am and 3pm.
