NEEDS A HOME WITH ANOTHER DOG
Lila is an adorable 2 year old Staffy cross who we all call our little piglet! She is completely white but with so much pink showing through, and by making little snorting noises, she makes it is easy to see how she got her nickname! Lila is looking for a new home after she was removed from a property with 4 dogs and owners who were unable to cope with them all. She was very scared when she first came into our care, and she still needs that extra bit of reassurance, but we have all quickly come to love her.
Lila settled in at the branch largely thanks to the other, confident dogs in our care. You see Lila adores other dogs. In fact she is like a different dog when she has a canine companion by her side. She confidently strides out on her daily walks with her doggy friends and off she goes, happy as anything, wanting to overtake them! Whereas when she is walked alone she is very on edge and hesitant. When with a companion she loves trotting down the bridal path, trying to pull us towards every passing squirrel she spots and towards every dog that is in sight so she can go and say hello.
She has lovely manners with other dogs and will insist on sniffing each pooch we pass. She does, however, pull a lot on lead, so we walk her on a harness but she would benefit from some reward based training to get her to walk to heal or you may end up with one arm longer than the other! She does play very nicely off lead with our other dogs and her favourite game is chase.
She likes to be the one getting chased though so we have to run around the paddock after her if the other dogs aren’t feeling up to it! Lila is much less confident with people and although she likes to go and greet every stranger she walks past, once she has approached them she tends to lose her confident and back away. It has taken her a few weeks to form a strong bond with our staff but now she trusts us she is cheeky and playful and very affectionate, but it does take her a little longer than most to make that connection. She is, however, unphased by all the comings and goings on at the kennels and is happy walking past traffic and school yards. But when it comes to one on one contact she likes to have met you a few times before having a stroke or a cuddle. Once she knows you then she likes to sit on your knee, have a good bum scratch, be chased around the paddock and will be very generous and wash your face for you too!
Lila is looking for a loving home with an understanding owner who will give her time to settle in and adjust to all the change that’s happening to her. We are looking for someone quite local who will be willing to come and meet her a few times and build a bond with her before the big day of taking her home so that she feels safe and secure. It is vitally important that there is another dog in the home that is keen to play with her and is confident in themselves. She is looking for a quiet home with adults only and where she won’t be left for more than 4 hours at a time.

Nico is an extremely loving and affectionate 2.5 year old Border Collie who is looking for a very specific type of home following the tragic passing of her owner.
Although Nico loves nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa with you and showing you how much she loves you she has lived a very sheltered life and needs an adopter who can replicate her previous home life. She needs a rural setting with just one or two people in the home and no other pets. Nico will need access to a private enclosed garden to play in and be taken for walks in the countryside where she will not encounter other people or pets.
If you would like to register your interest in Nico please contact us via email and we will send you some more information about her.
