ADOPTION

We take great care to match a dogs needs and temperament to the ideal owners circumstances, considering many factors.  Assements take time and we are currently receiving applications for new homes that outnumber the dogs available  20 -1 . However we have dogs arriving twice a month currently. Please be aware we can not cater to specific breed requests.

Please allow 7 days before contacting us regarding your application

We are currently experiencing an unprecidented amount of applications, it may take

up to 3 months or longer to match a dog with your family.

Before applying to adopt one of our dogs please think very carefully about it. Most dogs have a potential life span of around 15 years.  Whilst it is not dreadfully expensive to feed a dog on a weekly basis there are other, associated costs, such as vet bills, that can be very expensive especially if the dog is ill or has an accident.  

We would advise any potential adopter to take out relevant insurance cover.

We provide 5 weeks free insure to all who adopt with us.

To register an interest in adoption follow the interactive application.

​​Please do not ask to take one of our dogs on a "trial" as we will not agree to that.  You are welcome to visit the dog as many times as you like prior to adoption and spend as much time as you like with him/her. In many cases we do not know what the dog has had to live through in the past and we regularly find it can take several months before a dog feels secure and settled in his/her new home.  Therefore to take the dog on a brief trial run will only upset the dog's balance and will not prove whether or not the dog will be happy living with you.
