Bear is a super excitable and boisterous boy who has been busy working on learning some much needed manners. He is a strong dog who will pull on the lead and does jump up when he’s excited, so more learning is needed, but he does enjoy his training as he’s always keen to get those tasty treat rewards. He’s not a cuddly dog but he can be affectionate and does enjoy a little fussing. He much prefers to have fun chasing after his toys or enjoying a tasty filled Kong. He’s at his happiest when he’s running around and would suit an active owner who can make sure he gets lots of exercise. He would enjoy doing an activity like agility or scent work, which would also help tire him out. Bear is a young boy who has bags of potential and is sure to make a very rewarding pet.



Ace is looking for a home with a garden which isn’t close to a road. He may suit living with high school aged children who will give him space when he needs it. He isn’t keen on dogs so needs a dog free home.

Ace is a happy and affectionate boy who loves being made a fuss of. He is very playful and has lots of energy, he likes playing with a ball and will enjoy being able to have fun in a safe outdoor space. He will need regular grooming to keep his longer hair tug free.
