Lola is an anxious girl who is looking for an understanding and experienced owner who can help build her confidence. She was very nervous when she came to stay with us, but each day her confidence is growing a little more. She is very affectionate and cuddly with the people that she knows, she loves her comfortable bed, and is always happy to get a tasty treat. She has lots of energy and loves running around having fun with her squeaky ball. She does have some behavioural issues and will need to continue with her training. As she’s not keen on other dogs she will also need to work on her doggy socialisation skills. She would like an adult only home where she can be the only pet. Lola needs to get eye drops every day, her new owner must be prepared to do this, and be aware that as a pre-existing condition pet insurance will not cover the cost of this.



Murray is looking for a home with a cat flap so he can go into the garden whenever he wants to. He may suit a home with high school aged children but would like to be the only pet in his new home.

Murray is a happy boy with a sweet and affectionate nature. He is very friendly but can be a little wary in some new situations when he’ll need a little extra TLC. He loves his food and is always delighted to get some yummy treats. He will need regular brushing to keep his longer hair knot free, and prevent the poor boy needing another haircut to remove his matted fur. Murray is a cuddly boy who will give his new owners lots of love.
