We are not your standard rehoming service however, subject to availability and suitability (as assessed by our team) we do offer spaces for dogs needing rehabilitation and rehoming. Below are some of the cases we have worked with and any available dogs looking for homes. If you are looking for a rescue space for your dog and would like to speak to a member of our team, please get in touch and we'd be happy to help.

Re-homed Dogs

Physical benefits:

  • Stimulation of the nervous system.

  • Increase blood flow.

  • Accelerates lymphatic drainage.

  • Increases flexibility and elasticity.

  • Improves muscle quality and suppleness.

  • Reduces pain and relief of compensatory muscles.

KALLE

Kalle is a rescue from Romania who was re-homed to an elderly lady at about 9 or 10 years old. He started showing aggression towards strangers and had bitten a few people when we first started training. After doing extensive training with him and his owner and her still struggling to manage his behaviour, it was decided that it would be safer for him to be re-homed elsewhere. Not long after we took him on, we found out that he had lung cancer and was showing signs of dementia and so it was decided he would stay with our team for the 6 months he had been given to live. 3 and a half years later, after a lot of love, spoiling and great memories, Kalle passed away with our team by his side.

ODIN

You may recognise this handsome chap from our social media! Our team were called by a wonderful charity called The Red Foundation during the first lockdown of 2020 to help with a human and dog reactive Dachshund who's owner wasn't able to keep him anymore. He came in for an emergency residential training programme to help work on his anxiety and reactivity until a suitable home or foster home was found who could cater for his needs. After seeing the changes in Odin's behaviour and how well he fitted into the pack (and having already expressed interest in adopting a Dachshund!), Charlotte and Nathan put forward their interest in adopting Odin! He has since come on leaps and bounds in his training and loves nothing more than spending time with the rest of the pack, going on long walks and having lots of cuddles!

Digby

Digby was the first rescue case we ever worked with as a team. He is a Jack Russel x Staffie who was aggressive towards both people and dogs and had been given up by his owners as a result of that. He came in for training at about 3 years old and quickly showed off what a lovely, fun boy he really was! He was advertised for a short while before Charlotte's mum, Clare, expressed interest in adopting him! We carried out a trial week where Clare took on Digby's care, along with her other dog's at the time, introduced him into the home and got a feel of what he would be like full time. She and the family fell in love and they haven't looked back since!

Baloo

Baloo was another Romanian rescue dog brought over to the UK by a charity at about a year old. He was placed into their kennel facilities with some of the other dogs brought over and began showing reactivity towards members of staff at the facility, as well as some of the other dogs. The charity reached out to us for behavioural support and it was agreed that he would come in for residential training. After some training with the team to help Baloo learn to trust people and better socialise with other dogs, Nathan's mum, Jan fell in love. She went through the adoption process and has had him ever since!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do i express my interest in rehoming a dog?

Best place to start is by getting in touch with our team via our contact us page. If you haven't owned a dog before we can talk you through all aspects of dog ownership and support you right through as much or as little as you need. 

Will you need to see my home?

A home check will be required. We will take this opportunity to discuss your lifestyle and how rescuing a dog will fit into it. We aren't looking to judge you or your home, but to assess the suitability in introducing the individual dog and ensure the correct fit right from the get go. 

I have children, can I rehome a dog?

Yes. We always aim to re-home balanced dogs to new owners who have the tool to build a lasting bond and partnership. We will require any children (where appropriate) to attend greetings prior to adoption and training sessions to ensure everyone is on the same page and has the same understanding around training principles and how to best welcome the dog home.

I work full time, can I rehome a dog?

Yes. It is not suitable to leave any dog alone at home for more than 4-5 hours. However, we understand not everyone has that luxury. We would want to see how you would fit in regular toilet breaks during a working day or arrangements around day care/dog walking. Ensuring the dog is comfortable being left for periods of time is something we can work on with ongoing training also. 

If there is a question you have that isn't shown above, feel free to get in touch here.
