JACKO

Jacko is a very handsome black haired cross-breed boy, now around 5-6 years old, who has been in rescue since 2013 years (half of his life) and we’re desperate to find a new home to call his own.


Eventually bought over to the UK, he was adopted by a lady in a rural home, who sadly had to give him up due to ill health. Jacko would be happy living with, or without, other dogs, but we suspect would be perfectly happy to be the only one & have all the attention to himself.

Jacko is fine on a lead, but does a good impersonation of a steam train to begin with! He clearly remembers his days of freedom and his recall still needs a bit of work. He is also a seasoned traveler. Jacko is good with other dogs and we suspect he would be fine with confident cats after careful introduction because when he first arrived he lived in our isolation wing with another dog and we discovered a local feral cat was sharing their sofa at night.

Although based on his confidence with people and their apparel we believe he was an owned dog, it’s likely he spent his time meeting his pals scrounging and  socializing on the streets of Romania, when he was caught he served ‘time’ in kennels.

                                                                      LUCKY


Lucky is a Cavalier x Terrier. He is about 7 years old and STILL waiting for his forever home. He has been badly let down by humans at some point and has clearly been treated cruelly by someone, we believe it’s likely it was by a man, resulting in him needing time to trust new people. He needs a patient family ready to slowly build his confidence with them. 

Lucky is fabulous with other dogs, he has lived with a child, but would prefer an adult home. His requirements are very simple, all he asks for is good food, a comfy bed (preferably yours), lots of cuddles, a soft armchair or sofa to share and plenty of country walks. 

In return he will be the best friend you have ever had, he will be dependable and loyal, always pleased to see you no matter how much of a mess you look, he wont leave the toilet seat up, the lid off the toothpaste, nor steal your make up, loose the car keys or pee on your floor, AND he will act as an early warning system to alert you to potential dangers.

If you are interested plesse email:-  [email protected] And we will send you our adoption enquiry pack.

PEEVEY

Peevey is a delightful little Parson Jack Russell is 7 years old. We dont know much of his history, his last owner simply left him with us, and vanished. Peevey loves people and once he has discovered you are his friend, he wants all the fuss and attention going. He really is very loving and affectionate. As far as we know he hasn’t lived with children. So will not consider applicants with children. He mixes well with other dogs of all sizes and is currently living with many others. He is not good with cats and gets very excited if he sees one, and prepare to chase, so needs a cat free home.

Peevey lives indoors, and is clean and not destructive. He loves to sit on a lap and watch sports on TV. He is very keen to please & quick to learn new skills. Peevey travels well in the car and walks well on lead, and once he has built up a bond with his handlers, and has developed a well established relationships with them, is good off lead – in safe locations. However he does want to chase ‘wheels’ so care must be taken around cyclists and perhaps joggers too.

Peevey’s new family ideally need to live in a rural situation with woodlands, fields, moorland and beaches to walk him in. They will be sensitive and understanding about his unknown past, and experiences, and prepared to gently help him adapt to their lifestyle.

He is living with Mick in the farmhouse at the Sanctuary, near Kidwelly, South Wales, so potential adopters must be prepared to travel to meet / collect him once they have been through our adoption procedure.

To apply to adopt Peevey please address your enquiries to ‘Peevey’ ‘by email to [email protected]  And we will send you our adoption enquiry information and questionnaire

                                                                       SCRAPPY

                        

Scrappy is a 5-6 year old male Cross-Breed. Scrappy would dearly love his very own home, he has been waiting for almost two years. He is a very friendly and affectionate young chap, but is territorial so needs proper introductions to strangers or new people when at home, mixes well with other dogs, but doesn’t like cats – his terrier handbook clearly states that must be expelled from the vicinity or exterminated.

He currently lives in the farmhouse with a bevy of terriers and two big dogs. He is clean indoors and not destructive. His previous owner had young grandchildren and he was good with them. However he didn’t live with them full time so will not rehome him with resident tots or under 10’s.

Scrappy loves his home comforts and his favourite perch is on the back of the sofa or armchair pretending to be your scarf. Scrappy is at the Sanctuary near Kidwelly. After interrogation potential adoptors will be expected to travel to meet / collect him.
Please send your application to Scrappy via email to [email protected]

 

 

                                                                     ZUZU


Zuzu is a Romanian cross breed. She is another totally unique dog, a big dog on small legs, but not deformed like a Bassett Hound.

                     

 We believe she is no more than 5 years old, possibly as younger. Zuzu is a super friendly girl, she loves everyone and has been a quiet and (mostly) well behaved dog here. She does enjoy being with people, and can be a bit of a clown and finds it impossible to stand up if there is any chance of a belly rub. She definitely isn’t a dog to be home alone ALL day.

She gets on well with the majority of other dogs, she has clashed with one other bitch. They simply dislike each other, but did not fight. She happily lives with many other dogs here, and regularly walks with and meets other dogs of all sizes when out.
Zuzu does enjoy her walks and loves investigating new places with pals- human and canine. She goes off lead on her walks, and has a fabulous time running and investigating her environment. 
She travels well and has been clean and not destructive indoors.
Zuzu hasn’t been fully cat tested yet, but her initial visit went very well with her taking very little interest in the cats she saw. She has met and played with our horses- yes they all 3 played, lying down together when tired. She has also behaved well with a friends horses, been respectful and kept her distance.  So would need to be kept away from other livestock as I assume she would also see them as her new best friends. 

She is currently living with Fionna at the Sanctuary, near Kidwelly in South Wales.

To apply please address your enquiries to Zuzu, by email to [email protected]  we will then send you our adoption enquiry information and questionnaire

 PILLI

Pilli is a 2 year old Mastin Espaniol. We dont know her background, just that she was rescued in Spain, rehomed in the UK and sadly not accepted by the resident dog. So we offered to help her. This magnificant girl is a little shy to begin with, but loves people of all ages. She seems to have a special infinity towards children, she has been incredibly sensitive and gentle with them. She gets on very with other dogs, big, small, male or female. She has also been found around cats. Pilli been clean indoors, she is not destructive and a pleasure to have around. She does love to be outside, but likes to be able to check back indoors frequently to see what she might be missing. So a decent size country garden is a must.

Pilli walks well on a lead. Her recal is slow, and not yet reliable enough when out, so we walk her on a long line when away from our own secure fields. When she realises she is being called, she recals very quickly, but she clearly still doesnt expect any communication, becomes absorbed in what ever she is doing, and simply doesn’t hear. This is improving with time and effort. She travels very well in the car or van, settles down quietly and snoozes until you reaxh ypur destination. We are looking for a spacious country home with a secure garden for this beautiful girl.

However Pilli doesn’t like empty cattle trucks or horse boxes, perhaps they took her livestock family from her? She will also bark at horses if they come near her boundary.  Despite seeing them every day she will still  bark at our two, though  less so than she used to.  They in turn take no notice, and stand and stare, which probably makes her worse!

Pilli is living in the barn at the Sanctuary with Fionna. You will need to be able to travel to South Wales, to meet / adopt her.

Due to the volume of calls we receive, to speed up your enquiry please make your initial enquiries by email addressed to ‘Pilli’ at:- [email protected]

and we will send you our adoption enquiry pack and questionnaire. Please note ALL applicants, and their homes, will be vetted for suitability prior to an invitation to meet her.

                                           ALEXANDER & ORLOV

Can be homed together or as a pair

Brothers, they came to as a very bonded pair, they had spent some time kenneled prior to arrival so we’re quite wild indoors at first. They have calmed down a lot, and settle down nicely now – as long as everyone else does. But as young clowns they are prone to boisterous excited behaviour and if wound up.

The boys are clean indoors and have not been destructive, but if left unsupervised with cushions and small movable items I suspect they could become part of some pretty exciting games. ( only what one would expect from a couple of youngsters left alone to party).

 

They walk pretty well on a lead. Their recalls are good, but as sighthound type dogs we are selective about where they run free. They adore other dogs andlove to play. The boys are living with dogs of all sizes. It would be lovely if they could stay together, but we are well aware training two dogs at once is hard work, and they can be a handful, so will consider applications for individual homes. Ideally if separated there will already be at least one other resident dog. The boys are very friendly and will make lovely family dogs. However they may be a bit bouncy for toddlers unused to dogs.

Alexander And Orlov are living it up with Fionna and her pack at the Sanctuary, near Kidwelly, South Wales, whist they wait for their forever homes.
