Our Dogs and Cats

Meet Our Residents



Comet is a very nervous boy who is fearful of everything, so needs a calm and dedicated owner who preferably has experience with nervous dogs. His new owner needs to be dedicated and willing to commit to long term training and confidence building, while always being mindful of how anxious he will get in new situations. He is working hard to improve his manners and become more comfortable when he sees another dog, but this is something he will need to continue with his new owner. Comet is very loving and playful when around people that he knows, and he loves any kind of human contact, especially getting his ears scratched. He is lots of fun to have around and will make a very rewarding pet for the right person. He does love his treats and he is always keen to work on his training so he can get some tasty rewards. He would suit being the only pet in a quiet, adult only, home with an enclosed garden. As Comet has some specific requirements we will carry out a home check for any possible homes.



Shilo is a confident and happy girl who would like a home where she is the only pet. Although she’s not keen on the camera, she is actually a very affectionate and loving wee girl, who loves people and always enjoys getting a cuddle or some fussing. She loves having fun and enjoys playing with toys and she likes to chase after the light from a torch. She would like home with a garden so she can spend some of the day outside. Shilo may suit a home with high school aged children. She does have some medical issues which our kennel management team would be happy to discuss with anyone interested in giving her a home.
