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.



Oliver is looking for an experienced owner who has had a feisty cat in the past. He needs an adult only environment where he will be the only pet. He will need direct access to a garden through a cat flap so he can go outside when he wants to. He would suit a quiet area away from the city centre, where there is enough land around for him to explore freely.
Oliver is an independent boy who isn’t used to being handled much. He prefers his own space and likes to come and go when he wants. He loves his food and likes getting tasty cat treats. He is playful and likes to have fun with feathery toys and balls. Oliver is never likely to be a lap cat but may enjoy a bit more fussing when he feels settled. He would love to find an understanding and patient owner who will let their relationship develop at a pace he is happy with.
