Information about our Rescues


Meet handsome Harry! Harry is a 1 year old terrier cross with all his vaccantions up to date as well as being neutered. Our Harry is a mischeif maker as digging holes and running off are his favourite things to do! Despite his naughty behaviour he is only young and could still be succsesfully trained out of these bad habits with the correct owner. Harry is friendly with people but fears other dogs which means we won't be re-homing Harry into a household with other animals, Ideally with no young children either. 


Max came into the Barn's care several months ago. He is currently 6 years old, neutered and fully vaccinated. Max is a timid lad but will come round after you spend time with him and get to understand his needs. He's shy and all he needs is a comfy sofa to lay on and a furever owner to love and take care of him as he will care for you. Collies need plenty of exercise and stimulation however, his new owners will need to take things slow as his safe place is his kennel and there may need to be some encouraging to do. A gentle and patience owner is ideal for our Max. If you are interested in spending time with Max please contact our Facebook Page. 


Molly came into the Barn with her three fully grown pups, who have now all found their furever homes. She is now spayed with all vacations up to date and is ready to be re-homed to her furever family! Molly is very friendly with people and will play fetch for hours on end with you. However, she is not so playful with other dogs. Which is why we recommend a household with no other pets or no young children. Molly is certainly energetic and so will need daily exercise as standard. At a year and a half old she is still a puppy herself and is fully trainable. Interested in meeting our Molly? Contact our Facebook page if so!


Meet Bart! A 2 year old Jack Russell Terrier, neutered and fully vaccinated. Bart like typical Jacks need lots of stimulation and exercise to keep them out of mischief. He may be a hand full but his love in return is certainly worth it! He's playful and so lovable, he's generous with his kisses and there will never be a dull moment with Bart around! As Bart is an excitable lad we recommend no young children but other dogs may or may not be an option depending on the introductions. However, Bart will be protective over his food so please feed separably. If you are interested in meeting Bart please contact the Facebook page as always! 


Little Ollie is a 3 year old male chihuahua who came to the shelter less than a month ago. He is neutered with all his vaccinations. Ollie is the tiniest wee dog we've had at the barn for a while now and he'd do anything for a bum scratch! He loves attention from people but does not get on with other dogs. We will not be re-homing Ollie to a household with any other pets or any young children due to this. However, a sweet cuddle buddy like Ollie has lots of love to give to his new owners. 


Benji is another Jack Russell we have here at the Barn. He is 2 years old, neutered and fully vaccinated as are all of our dogs at the Barn. He is independent and likes his own company every once and a while which is why we wouldn't recommend a household with young children and or other animals. Despite his timid behaviour he is a lovable lad when familiar with you and when out in the yard he runs around like a bullet without a single care in the world! Does Benji sound like your pawfect match? If so contact our Facebook page to meet him! 


Our handsome Rocky is a possible staffie husky cross. He is neutered, fully vaccinated and round about 4 years old with an attitude for exercise! Rocky is friendly with people but choosy about other dogs, which is why we will not be re-homing him into a household with other animals or young children. Rocky is an energetic boy and would need an active owner to take him on those well deserved long walks! If you would like to meet Rocky please contact our Facebook page linked below! Thank you.


Meet Coco! Coco is a beautiful 5 year old Pomeranian, spayed and vaccantated. She can be shy at times but once she gets to know you she’ll smother you with love. 
Coco would be best suited to being an only dog in her new home, with only older children to play with. If you are intreseted in meeting this little lady please contact the facebook page to book an appointment.

Thank you!


Meet Shadow! A stunning 4 year old husky.  Shadow loves nothing more than being the centre of attention, as well as giving out kisses to everyone he meets! He loves a good run about and could use a canine companion of his own in his new home. All depending on the indurdutions we'd love for him to be re-homed with another dog. Although, We don't recommend a household with young children as he is a excitable dog. If you are interested in meeting Shadow please contact the Facebook page to book an appointment. 


Meet Henry! A 8 year old Pomeranian. Henry is a timid boy who doesn't particularly like other men however, he sure is quite the ladies man! It may take Henry awhile to come round with new people but once you spend sometime with him you'll have a friend for life! Since Henry is an old and nervous lad we will only be re-homing him to a quite household with no other pets and with no young children. If you would like to meet Henry and spend some time with him please as always contact our facebook page for an appointment. 


Meet water loving Tizer! Tizer is a lively 10 year old collie, who has been at the Barn for a couple weeks now but has been under assement for his reported dog aggression. However, we don't recommend a home with other pets Tizer is the most loving boy with everyone he meets! He loves nothing more than chasing the hose or splashing about in the water. A good run and a game of fetch is also very much enjoyed. Despte his age Tizer is clearly an energentic pup inside. Could you offer Tizer a loving furever home?
