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 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!

Other information:

Meet our new dog Grace. She has just arrived from the pound and is a sweetheart. She is around 4 years old and has obviously had some pups in the past. She loves cuddles and when we took her to the vets for her vaccination she was laid across Steve's lap. She has been good with the other dogs in the pound but we're still in the process of her assessment due to her only just arriving. If you would like to meet Grace, the kennels are open for viewing every day from 11am til 3pm.

 

MAVIS

(RESERVED)

Terrier Cross

(approx 4-5yrs old)

in a foster home

 

Questions about Mavis...

 

  • Is she used to other dogs: Yes but can get jealous.
  • Is she used to cats: No
  • Is she used to small animals such as rabbits: No
  • Is she used to children: Mavis is very good with children but needs a home either without children or with children over 10yrs as she can be nervous of them.
  • 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 she 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 home where she will receive lots of walks.  She is a very active little terrier. 
  • Exercise requirements: at least 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. 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 would be very happy as an only dog, she is fine with other dogs but likes attention. Mavis has shown signs that she may have been a working dog so no cats or small furries and although she has grown in confidence no children under the age of 10 as she gets worried by them.

 

Mavis is now a happy little girl about 6yrs old who is ready to have a home and family of her own, she is lively and loves her walks so someone who is active and wants a walking companion would be ideal. Aunty Sylvia has put a lot of time and effort into Mavis and has done a fantastic job turning her around from that scared girl that arrived with an horrific facial injury.

 

If you are interested in meeting Mavis, please give us a call as Mavis is in a foster home not at kennels so we need to make arrangements.

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 she 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.
