Our Dogs and Cats




Nelson is a happy wee boy who loves to have fun. He likes playing with his toys, whether that’s chasing after a ball, throwing around a squeaky toy, or keeping himself amused with a tasty filled Kong. He has lots of energy so likes to keep active and might even like to run with his new owner or go hill walking. He is an affectionate boy but he does need a bit of space at times, and he enjoys learning and loves enrichment. Nelson does have resource guarding issues, so needs an understanding owner who will commit to working with a professional to manage this. He can be reactive around other dogs, but has been working on this and is now happy to wear a muzzle and is more likely to take a treat than react badly. Nelson has a lot of potential and is sure to be a very rewarding pet for the right owner.



Saffron is looking for an experienced owner who has preferably had a Torti cat before so they can understand the Torti nature. She needs a home with direct access into a garden, and needs to be the only pet in a home without children.

Saffron is an independent girl who enjoys her own space but she does like being made a fuss of when she’s in the mood and enjoys having someone around to keep her company. She loves a comfy bed where she can have a snooze, and likes having a box to hide in if she feels anxious. Saffron likes playing with catnip toys or just rolling around in some catnip, and she loves tasty cat treats. She has a lot of energy so she will need a home with a cat flap so she can go outside for some fun whenever she wants to.
