How handsome is Mr Tyson!! He is 5 years old, and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.  He loves being out and about with our volunteers. He is a very strong boy so he needs someone who can manage his walks comfortably. He will also need some aspects of basic training as he can be very excitable. Tyson would be best suited as an only dog home with no cats, and children 14 years plus please.  As always a safe enclosed garden is required. Tyson has the biggest smile, and his eyes just melt you when you look at him!! Micro chipped, vaccinated and neutered.
Please only pm the fb page to apply for Tyson,  or email us. Vet references may be required.
The Barn operates by appointment only, face masks to be worn at appointments due to Covid restrictions 

Look at this beauty, Ruby, the English Bulldog.  She is 2 years old, and just loves her big red ball and chasing bubbles.  She is well behaved albeit a little crazy, she just loves getting her belly rubbed too.  Ruby would prefer a home with calm children, over the age of 10 years to play with, and someone home most of the time to keep her company.  She would need to be the only dog in the household, and no cats.  As is all our dogs, Ruby is micro chipped, spayed and vaccinated. Please email us or contact the Facebook Page to make an appointment to meet this pretty girl. Facemasks to be worn at appointments due to Covid restrictions


Patches is a beautiful girl. She is a Spaniel Collie cross, and is 2 years old.
She needs a home with someone who will be at home all the time and willing to work with her issues. She needs lots of exercise and stimulation. She can be destructive when left alone, can be nervous and sometimes a bit 'nippy. We need a home for Patches that has no other animals and no children.  A safe enclosed secure garden is also required. Please DO NOT apply for Patches if you cannot work with her issues. Micro chipped, Vaccinated and Spayed.

Please pm  the fb page to apply for Patches. The Barn runs by appointment only.
