Max, a Collie, came to the Barn in 2017. He is 6 years old, neutered and fully vaccinated. Max is a timid boy but will come round after you spend time with him. He is shy and needs an owner that can offer him love, patience, attention and a comfy sofa. Collies need plenty of exercise and stimulation but with Max his new owners will need to take things slow and at his pace.  His safe place is his kennel, but he needs to know that outside is full of fun! A gentle and patient owner is ideal for our Max. Max just loves having his belly rubbed! If you are interested in spending time with him please contact our Facebook Page or email us  

Molly is a 2 year old Belgian Shepherd cross.  She came to the Barn with her three fully grown pups, who have now all found their forever homes. Since coming to us in April 2019 she has been spayed, micro chipped and her vaccinations are up to date. Molly has undergone basic training using positive reinforcement, this must continue with her new owners.  Joanne Doonan, IMDT, has kindly agreed to carry this training on with Molly.  She is highly intelligent and would chase a ball for hours if she could. Molly is selective about other dogs, so we recommend a household with no other pets and no young children. Molly is energetic and will need daily exercise as standard. This beautiful girl is so willing to please her human, she just needs the right person to bring out the best of her. Could you give Molly what she needs? Contact our Facebook Page  or email for more information


Look at our handsome 2 year old Lurcher Sidney. A fun bouncy boy who just loves walks and is so full of life. Sidney is also happy to cuddle up to you on the sofa after his exercise.  Sidney can be re homed with a similar size dog pending suitable introductions.  Sidney would also need a home where his human is with him majority of the day, children 12 years plus and no cats. He is neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated. Please contact our Facebook Page or email us to meet our lovely boy

Everyone say hello to 'Alfie'. He is a 2 year old Dalmatian.  Alfie is a great boy that loves being the center of attention, a real character!  He will need someone in the home with him, due to separation anxiety.  We would like a home that has children aged 14 years plus,  no cats and no other dogs. Dalmatian experience is preferred, with an enclosed secure garden.  Alfie is micro chipped, neutered and all vaccinations up to date. Could you be the family Alfie is looking for?  Please contact our Facebook page or email to make an appointment    

Who could resist this young pup!! Rufus the hound..This full on, bouncy, energetic boy is just over a year old now, a typical puppy in every way. He is a Harrier Hound, and just loves sniffing when out on walks.  He is very strong on the lead, and would ideally go to an energetic family home with children 14 years plus.  He could also be re homed with another dog of similar size and energy.  He travels well in the car with correct restraint.  A fully enclosed garden is a must, and someone  willing to spend time and to be committed in training this boy to the best he can be!  Please make an appointment to say hello to Rufus, by either email or via our Facebook page 


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
