Feather is looking for a very special home after she was removed from a property with 12 other dogs. She is a beautiful Chinese Crested lady we estimate at being around 5 years old. In her previous home she lived her entire life indoors, never being let out to toliet and so understandably she finds the great outdoors very worrying and she is not house trained. As a result we are looking for someone who has had experience with a dog with similar troubles and has endless amounts of patience.
Feather is a wonderful dog to have around. Each morning she runs out of her kennel straight onto the sofa for cuddles and quickly curls up on your lap for love and kisses. She is the most affectionate little dog you will ever meet, forever looking into your eyes to be adored and asking for more love. She never tires of sitting on our knee and dozing off; in fact it’s normally us who have to coax her down to get some work done.
Once she realises that cuddle time is over she will happily potter around the office, but the worry starts when its time to go outside. Feather does enjoy sunning herself in our quiet grassy paddock, but she still would prefer to be sitting on our knees on the garden bench. However, she does have a run around and a chew on some grass.
Out in the real world, with normal everyday noises and weather conditions, she becomes very distressed. She will avoid going outside as best she can and if the slightest gust of wind or noise troubles her then she will hold everything in and toilet once she is back indoors. Apart from neighbouring barking dogs, our kennels are very quiet and rural and the paddock area which Feather actually enjoys going out in has no passing traffic or noise from neighbours and is very open and light. She happily toilets in the paddock and in general is quite clean in her kennel.
Feather needs a home in a quiet area, preferably rural where the everyday sounds of neighbours and traffic can’t really be heard. If the location is too busy then she will be too scared to go outside and will mess in the house. She needs a home with a large, grassy garden where she can spend her time pottering around. She does not enjoy going out for walks or visiting places so running around the garden would be her only exercise. Ideally the home will have a conservatory or room which opens out into the garden where Feather can spend the majority of her time and any accidents can be easily cleaned up, so preferably a tiled or laminate floor. If given the full run of the house Feather will urinate wherever she pleases, as this is what she has been left to do for the whole of her life up.
Feather was originally rehomed two months a go with another Chinese Crested from the same home but despite the other dog quickly getting to grips with house training she became more and more anxious about outoors and continuously messed indoors. The location was typical of most housing and was simply too noisy for Feather. So to help Feather have as few distractions as possible we are looking for a home with no other dogs where her new owner can devote all their time on her.
We are looking for someone who has had a dog with similar issues as Feather who knows how important it is to be patient and understanding. They will need to be out for no more than 4 hours a day and have a very quiet home located in a country-type area. Although Feather is extremely affectionate and loves everyone, her toilet habits and need of a peaceful life mean that we are looking for a home without children.

Dre is a black and white Saluki cross who may not be the brightest bulb but makes up for his lack of brains with his playful character and adorable nature. Dre came into our care at the end of September at just 14 months of age along with his sister Daisy. Sadly their owner could no longer afford to feed them alongside the other 9 dogs in the home.
All the dogs were kept in kennels but have been well socialised around people and appear used to being around people indoors. We have every reason to believe they will adapt well to living in the home as they love lounging on the sofa in our office and making the most of the home comforts available. Dre is very clean in his kennel and waits until his walks to go to the toilet so we are confident that he will quickly pick up house training.
Dre is a beautiful boy who loves food, playing chase and squeaky balls. He is a little shy at first when meeting new people, or going to unknown places, but with the support of his sister he quickly brightens up and starts to enjoy himself. He does a wonderful impression of a buck-a-roo, parading around our paddock with his legs flying everywhere, tossing his squeaky ball in the air. His attention span isn’t very long so he quickly gets bored of his toys and directs his attention onto Daisy. He loves to chase her around the paddock and plays really rough with her like an over grown puppy: he snaps his teeth, pulls on her ears and generally makes a nuisance of himself but thankfully Daisy loves it.
Dre is lacking in confidence out on walks but on a harness and lead and following behind another dog he walks well.
He enjoys sniffing everything and trying to pick up scraps of food on his way and is happy walking past traffic. He does, however, act defensively sometimes to passing people and dogs when out on walks. We believe he wasn’t exercised away from the home much as a pup and so needs help with his socialising skills. A weekly dog class would help him gain confidence around unknown dogs and people as he is happy to make new friends in environments he feels comfortable in. It is simply out on walks he sometimes feels threatened and barks.
Dre is a lovely boy who enjoys hugs and kisses and will happily follow his human friends anywhere with a treat. Currently he doesn’t know any commands but his willingness to learn and his obsession with treats should make it an easy task. Due to his lack of confidence and reliance on another dog we are looking to rehome Dre to live with either Daisy or an existing dog in the home, but due to his full-on playing style the dog would need to be extremely tolerant and happy to join in Dre’s puppy fights. Dre is also very greedy and will eat everything in sight so the other dog must be willing to let him!
We are looking for adopters who won’t be out of the house for more than 4 hours at a time and where any children are teenage, as both dogs have a tendency to jump up and run into your legs if you’re not paying attention during play time. Neither dog is suitable to live with other animals; they both have high prey drives so we would recommend not letting them off lead in public areas and to consider muzzle training them.

Daisy came into our care at the end of September at just 14 months of age along with her brother Dre. Sadly their owner could no longer afford to feed them alongside the other 9 dogs in the home. Daisy is a white and brindle Lurcher with eyes like sapphires; she is as sharp as a tack but will happily swap between showing off her commands and playing with her best friend and brother, Dre.
All the dogs were kept in kennels but have been well socialised around people and appear used to being around people indoors. We have every reason to believe they will adapt well to living in the home as they love lounging on the sofa in our office and making the most of the home comforts available. Daisy is very clean in her kennel and waits until her walks to go to the toilet so we are confident that she will quickly pick up house training.
Daisy is a smart dog who pleasantly surprises us every day with new tricks and skills she has picked up. She is always very eager to please and will quickly go into the sit position and demand that you take her paw in the hope of a treat. Once she has finished showing off she loves to run around in circles, tossing the favourite toy of the day in the air, normally a squeaky ball. Daisy loves to play with toys on her own; it’s a joy to watch her throw herself around the paddock pouncing on the toy to make sure it is definitely ‘dead’. She often gets distracted by Dre and it will often turn into a play fight and a chase around the paddock instead. (Daisy has a very full on playing style and likes to pull Dre’s ears!)
Once she has burnt off enough energy Daisy likes to have a cuddle and will come and lick your face clean for you or nibble your nose. She is an affectionate dog who enjoys spending time with people more than other dogs. Out on walks Daisy goes at a very slow pace, as she has to sniff every blade of grass she can find. She walks well on her harness and lead and has no worries about going out for walks without another dog for company but she can be quite defensive towards men and other dogs out on walks. We believe she wasn’t exercised outside of the home environment much as a puppy so struggles to socialise properly with people and dogs in areas she doesn’t feel 100% comfortable. However, she is very well mannered meeting people and dogs onsite at our kennels where she feels safe and secure. Daisy is looking for a home either with Dre or on her own. She is more than happy to play and exercise by herself and is so intelligent that we believe that in a home as the only pet, with all the attention and time devoted to her, she could be a magnificent lady.
We are looking for adopters who won’t be out of the house for more than 4 hours at a time and where any children are teenage, as both dogs have a tendency to jump up and run into your legs if you’re not paying attention during play time. Neither dog is suitable to live with other small animals; they both have high prey drives so we would recommend not letting them off lead in public areas and to consider muzzle training them.
