Juno

This pretty, semi-long haired young lady has been in our foster care for a couple of months. She was brought in as a stray, having just given birth outdoors to a litter that sadly all died, so we don’t know her history, only that she is very wary of interaction with people. At some point she has lost half of her lovely tail. Juno is beautifully house-trained, using a litter tray neatly, and is not a picky eater. Her fosterers have been working on gaining Juno’s trust by spending a lot of time in the same room, and by feeding her treats to lick off their fingers. Juno loves these treats and has very slowly started to come out from hiding when someone is in the room, to play with her favourite toys or chatter to birds through the window. She is still reluctant to receive other attention such as stroking or brushing but is completely non-aggressive. Juno plays a lot at night, and is also showing an interest in meeting her fosterer’s resident cats – unfortunately, the feeling is not mutual, so we haven’t been able to pursue this! We think that Juno would benefit from a quiet child-free home, with experienced cat owners who will be patient while she comes further out of her shell. A home with another young cat for companionship, and/or an outdoor environment such as a farm or stables where she can choose how much to interact with her people, would be ideal. Juno has had a tough start to her life. Can you offer her a happy and secure home?

Wilbur - Reserved



Wilbur Male 5 Years old, Old English Cocker Spaniel cross.

Black curly coat on legs and tail with straight hair coat on back and face, with white splodge on chest.

Wilbur is an adorable comical dog, at the moment he needs insulin twice a day morning and night to control his diabetes and a balanced diet to get his weight down. Once his weight is down, it may be possible for him to no longer need insulin.
The insulin is by injection but he is well used to staying still for this to be administered. This is also something anyone can learn to do. You do not have to get insulin from the Vet, it can easily be ordered with a prescription on the internet and delivered to your door at a more reasonable cost.

Wilbur has a fun loving character and loves to play. He is like a teddy bear that loves lots of cuddles and will give as much love back as he receives.

He is best as a pet on his own as sharing toys is something of a challenge and Cats are just for chasing and barking at.

He would love someone to be at home most of the days and would make that special someone a lovely companion.

Fully house trained, good on car journeys. Does not beg for food at the table. But will watch if you eat from your lap. Will bark at people coming to the house he doest know.

Loves:
  • Walks will carry his own lead and does not pull
  • Brings you your footwear
  • Will run for a ball, loves squeaky ones
  • Loves a brush especially with brush mits
  • Will talk to you and i don't mean ask him to speak so he barks, he just has a soft way he talks to you, hearing is believing.
  • Loves to cuddle up on the settee with a cushion.
  • Will sleep on a dog bed in the bedroom at night, but also loves to be on the bed with you and will wait to be asked up.
  • Loves a bone to chew
  • Playing with water

Dislikes:
  • Other dog having any toys
  • Cats

Crisp - Rehomed

Crisp is a 9 years old, male cat. We are trying to rehome him direct from his owner He is quite an anxious boy - his owner says he often hides under the bed if things change in the house but he just needs patience and time to adjust to things. He has come a long way since they got him as a very timid stray who had been scavanging for food by day and living in a doghouse by night. He has gained in confidence and loves lounging in the garden and never wanders too far from home. He prefers women to men and will often snuggle but it has to be on his terms. A home without children would suit him. He has been friends with a dog so he could get on with a cat friendly dog and may get on with another cat.

Jax

Jax is a 3 year old Old Tyme Bulldog. He came into our care because of bad skin and ear trouble which sadly his owners were finding hard to manage. He is doing well in foster care and has had surgery on both of his ears to remove the ear canals. This means he is partially deaf. He is used to sign language and is quite easy to communicate with (you have to talk loudly to him and use signs). He is lovely natured and loves children, he has lived with a child before. We will consider homes with respectful children as he can get quite rough when playing. He is really easy to go for a walk with, never pulls on his lead. He loves to play with squeaky toys and tennis balls, as well as chew on flavoured bone toys. Jax loves people and wants to be near somebody at all times, he suffers from separation anxiety, which he's getting over with the help of his foster carers. He loves to snuggle up with you at night or in the mornings, a belly rub is his favourite spa treatment. He almost never barks and enjoys exploring new places. He may need to stay on a special diet to help his skin condition.
