Flynn - Experienced Foster Needed

Meet Flynn a adorable 8-10 month old male Border Collie pup, Flynn came to our attention when he was advertised on face book free to a good home, unfortunately by the time we got in contact he had already been given away, 3 homes in 4 days later we finally managed to secure his future and he is now safe with us.

When we offered to help this pup we expected a aggressive crazy animal to arrive as that is how he had been described to us but what actually arrived was a very confused and insecure little boy who we suspect has been passed around for most of his short life. Flynn has zero aggression but he has also had zero training or any sensible input at all. In less than a hour today Flynn has learnt so much, he now knows how to sit, how to give a paw and how to listen when asked, he's a smart pup and in the right hands is going to progress with ease. Flynn doesn't seem to know what other dogs are or cars in fact most things he has come across he has to study carefully to be sure they mean him no harm but once this is done he is quite happy to inspect them closely.

Flynn originated from Wales and we strongly suspect he is a puppy farm dog, he shows all the signs of never being outside the 4 walls he was born in but he's not overly fearful he's just a little cautious until he knows things mean him no harm.

Friendly, kissy and so loves a snuggle, we can't wait to see this pups progress but to do this we need a special sort of foster home.

No children, they would over stimulate him and he gets nippy in play.

No cats.

Flynn could maybe live with 1 other sensible dog that wouldn't get in his face but must be able to separate and have the experience needed.

Someone who has the time and patience to guide this pup, to connect and bond with him, to be his trusted friend.

He is super smart and willing and ready to learn!


Zac - Available Now

Im Zac

I'm only a small dog and under a year old. I came into PDiN very scared but Im already learning to trust. I love going for walks and out in the car I like all other dogs but not cats. My new home would have to be with children over the age of 12 due to me being a little nervous.

Zac is a young small lurcher around 10-12 months old. We think he is probably a patterdale x whippet, he's a lovely boy who came to us in a very scared state but due to the love of his foster home he has learnt to trust and enjoy life.

Zac needs a home where he will get lots of attention and walks he would not suit a working home where he would spent a lot of time alone. Zac loves other dogs and would really benefit from living with another confident dog. Zac loves his walks and is good on his lead but his favourite pastime is to go a drive, he adores the car. This young boy is going to make someone very happy he is such a loving dedicated 

WILF - Reserved  

Wilf is a young (approx 12 months) terrier boy. He has just been neutered. He is typical of a young terrier, very active and bouncy and can be a bit vocal. He loves playing with his toys.  He likes to go for decent walks every day and enjoys playing in the garden. He is a loving boy and likes to come up on settee for a cuddle. He sometimes still barks at other dogs when he is on his lead but is good with other dogs otherwise. He won't be rehomed with children under the age of 12.  His ideal home would be with people who know the needs of a young terrier and have lots of time and attention to devote to him and carry on with this bright boys training. He can't be rehomed with cats.


He is currently in Kennels and desperate for a foster or forever home to give him a chance.


Bunty - Reserved

Bunty is a 2 year old Shihtzu girl. She has come a long way since she came to us a frightened little girl from the pound and is now ready for a home of her own. She is looking for an experienced, kind and patient home with lots of time to continue the good work in her foster home and help her to develop and let her know its ok to trust all people. She is still very nervous when first meeting people and is particularly wary of men so needs a home that understands this and is willing to give her the space she needs to come round in her own time. She likes quiet and routine in her life. She loves going out for walks so a fairly active home would suit her best as well. She is fine around other dogs and ok with cats etc. She won't be rehomed where there are small children living or as regular visitors. She is clean in the house and ok to be left 2 or 3 hours. Once you get to know her and she trusts you she is a lovely girl but she is by no means a lap dog and can still be quite aloof although she has started coming for a cuddle at times. If you think you can offer her the perfect home please get in touch.





Lexi - Adopted 

Lexi is a 3yr old staff x mastiff girl. 

She's playful and intelligent and responds well to treats when training. She seems good around small children but because of her size and bounciness wouldn't be ideal to live with them.
She is super fit and loves long walks and playing ball games. She does like to chase things so no cats or small furries for her.
This girl will give so much affection to her new family and deserves the same in return so please find a place in your home for Lexi, she will make you laugh, and I guarantee she will kick start your day with a smile.

Lexi is fine when meeting dogs around but she needs to be the only dog in her home. She is a large girl and can be a bit pully but walks well on a harness. She is fine to be left for a few hours.





Isla - Adopted

Isla is now 8 weeks old and looking for her forever home. She is a delightful little girl full of fun and mischief. She is a staffy cross and will very likely grow up to be quite a big girl. She is well socialised with children and other dogs. She has had her first vaccination and a clean bill of health of the vets and her new home will need to take her back to our vets for her second vaccination at 10 weeks then she can start to go out for walks :) She is looking for a family home with time to spend with her. Please note there is no trial period when rehoming one of our puppies and the adoption fee of £150 is payable at the time of adoption. However we do cover the cost of neutering at around 6 months.



Tia - Available Now

Tia is a 2 year old Staffy cross girl with the sweetest nature you could meet. She hasn't had a great start in life, 

Bred from twice while so very young, often found walking the streets alone, unloved and never really wanted by anyone, does this seem fair to you? It doesn't to us :-(

Tia came to us after it came to our attention  her last litter of pups were being sold at just four weeks old to anyone who had a few pound spare to buy one, we already knew of this poor girl so when we also heard she had taken ill we persuaded them to hand her over to us along with the remaining babies. Tia was seriously ill with a massive infection but luckily we got her in time and even though it was touch and go for a couple of days she made a good recovery and was even well enough to be reunited with her babies to give them the best start in life she could. Tia was a fantastic Mummy to her babies even when so poorly she still took such gentle care of them all.

Tia's babies have now all found their forever homes but Tia is still waiting. Tia has such a gentle nature she adores everyone she meets and just wants to cuddle up close for affection. She's a good girl who is fine with other dogs, loves children (a little too much at times so no under 6's for this girl).

Tia has been through so much in her short life yet remains one of the nicest, sweetest dogs we have ever helped, people should be queuing up to offer her a home but not one suitable home has come forward.

Please consider whether you could give this sweet girl the loving forever home she now deserves.



Valerie - Available Now 

This lovely girl came to us a few weeks back. She didn't have the best start in life and she was very scared of everything. She went into one of our amazing foster homes and slowly learnt to trust people and behave like a dog, enjoying walks and cuddles. It really wasn't plain sailing and she had some challenges along the way but she is now ready to move to her forever home. Valerie is just a year old and is still very shy when meeting new people for the first time. Her ideal home will be a quiet home where there isn't lots of people coming and going and where the people have lots of time to pay her attention. She would like another doggy friend to live with, her foster brothers and her are very close and she wouldn't be happy as an only dog. She is fine with children but ideally they would only be there sometimes (like grandchildren). She needs new owners who are experienced, very calm, gentle and patient and happy to help her continue developing her confidence.
We always want special homes for our dogs but for this brave and special girl the new home will have to be EXTRA special!

Max is a lovely 6 year old neutered male lurcher.  He is a fantastic boy, great with other dogs and cats and children. Although he likes other dogs he would be fine as an only dog as well.

Max is currently in kennels and needs a foster or forever home to give him a chance now.

Bandit - Reserved

Bandit is a tiny JRT cross around 2/3 years old. Bandit needs a terrier savvy home with the experience to cope with his quirks, Bandit isn't keen on strangers and would nip if he was approached by one, they need to let him come to them in his own time! Once he gets to know you though he is a loving, cuddly little man.
Bandit is generally fine with other dogs. We have had him in day care and in foster with 4 other dogs with zero issues but he has been known to take offence to some dogs, usually big ones from time to time. Bandit id fine with cats. This tiny little boy has a lot of attitude at times but its easily managed and he does listen when told......to know this little champ is to love him.
No children or busy homes for Bandit.
He would prefer a home where someone is around a lot of the day to give him lots of attention and would be an ideal companion for someone who is retired. he is ok to be left for a couple of hours though.
Could you offer this little character the loving home he deserves?

Boris is young and can be a little giddy at times but one word and his focus is 100% back. This medium sized Teddy Bear is going to be a joy to train he's such a bright people focused boy.

Boris seems fine with other dogs but no cats or young children until fully assessed.

This lovely boy has come such a long way in his foster home but due to an unexpected illness is looking for a new foster home or forever home quite soon.
Benji is a delightful cross breed boy, around a year old, he isn't yet neutered but will be soon. He is great with everyone he meets, loves other dogs, children and is great with cats. He is a bouncy young boy and loves his walks and is a good boy on and off the lead.
