Homes Needed

Due to the volume of calls we receive, to speed up your enquiry please make your initial enquiries by email. We will require you to complete our pre-adoption questionnaire before we can proceed. Email us at [email protected]  and we will send you one.

If you really can’t email, then please telephone Fionna on 07976-538588 & be prepared to leave a message.

NB: You will not gain any advantage by telephoning, everyone needs to complete the questionnaire, dogs go to the best home for them, not the first to enquire.

All applicants will be vetted, & will need to be able to travel to the Sanctuary near Kidwelly, South  Wales.

We always have dogs not yet listed here.

 These dogs are at the a Sanctuary, near Kidwelly, & you will need to travel to meet/ adopt , after our vetting procedures are completed satisfactorily.

If you are interested in adopting one of these dogs please email us & we will send you our pre adoption questionnaire

Note: it goes without saying that ALL dogs should be supervised around children, and ALL children should be taught how to behave with and around dogs. Tail pulling, poking, sitiing on or climbing on dogs is NEVER acceptable behaviour.


JACKO


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.

                                                  BONNIE (top) & CLYDE




Medium sized Crossbreeds, Bonnie & Clyde, are looking for homes together or individually. They are about 5 years old.

Both are friendly with other dogs. Bonnie really is not good with cats. Clyde on his own seems uninterested in them, but with Bonnie around he will join in the chase. 

Bonnie is very affectionate, and is fine with other dogs when out, but can be bossy with dogs coming in to her home. Bonnie is clean indoors. She hasn’t been destructive. She also travels very well.

Her hobbies are:

Cuddling

Sitting on laps

Eating 

Playing with other dogs

Investigating what everyone else is up to

Car rides

Chewing raw meaty bones

Hogging the bed

Hiding all the toys

Oh and chasing cats, squirrels, rabbits etc

Clyde also needs a home. He is also delightful friendly and affectionate, and not at all bossy like her. 

His hobbies are mostly the same. 

But he isn’t quite as keen on chasing – unless Bonnie is involved, then he is as keen as her. 

He loves trying to pull harder than Bonnie when on a lead. 

Herding is his forte, and when they were first in rescue care they had puppies. Clyde took full responsibility for all 8 of them.and kept them all in a nice tidy group for Mum, Bonnie. 

He also like pinching everyone else’s food.

They are happy to stay together if you can’t choose one over the other. But will consider separate home offers too.

They have no experience with children so won’t be homed with under 12s.

They are currently living the dream at the Sanctuary, near Kidwelly in South Wales.

To apply please address your enquiries to Bonnie & Clyde 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. 

They are 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
