Our Dogs and Cats

Meet Our Residents



Bailey is a very nervous girl who is scared of everything and she is looking for an understanding owner who has had previous experience with nervous dogs. She will make friends with new people but does need some time and patience to come around, so her new owner will need to visit her a few times before taking her home. She likes to have her own space at times and likes to stretch out in her comfy bed for a little quiet time with her soft toys. She likes being made a fuss of by people that she knows, and always enjoys a tasty stuffed Kong or a lick mat with some doggy safe peanut butter. Bailey gets on well with other dogs and could potentially live with a doggy friend, but this would depend on introductions. She is looking for a quieter home without children under 16.



Eli is a shy wee boy, but when he gets to know you he is very sweet and affectionate. He just wants to be petted as much as possible and is even happy getting brushed. He loves cat treats but hasn’t shown much interest in toys yet. He is looking for an understanding owner who can help him gain some confidence. He would like a home with a garden, so that when he is feeling a little more sure of himself, he can get outside to explore and enjoy a bit of independence. Eli may be suited to living with high school aged children, but would prefer to be the only pet in his new home.

A Wonderful Life
