DOG OF THE WEEK - RIGBY - Lurcher Rigby is looking for a home to call his own!  He has been estimated To be around the 2 years old mark. He really seems to have been through the mill and had to have major surgery to save his leg. He came to us as a stray, circumstances unknown – he somehow had a hole in his leg, which really was in an awful state and was going too be very hard to repair. He could of quite easily lost his leg or worse if the infection had got worse his life. After being given lots of medication and loads of TLC Rigby has made an excellent recovery He was very underweight, but with plenty of good food he he now looks and is much healthier.! Rigby is a very good traveller. He is looking for a cat free home. Rigby is such a lovely natured chap who is very affectionate and is going to make a wonderful pet and companion. He is in the kennels in Dorset. Photo on the adopt a dog page.


URGENT - Beautiful golden brindle 7 year old whippet/lurcher Minnie urgently needs a new home because of a change in her owner's circumstances.  Minnie is a lovely natured dog who loves people and is very affectionate. She is quite an energetic, strong natured girl who needs a home where she will have plenty of long walks. Her recall is excellent and she is very good with dogs she knows, but can be wary of dogs she meets for the first time. Minnie is not keen on cats. She is fine when left on her own in the home. Minnie is fully vaccinated, and has been spayed and micro-chipped. If may be able to give Minnie a new home, please ring her owner Sam on 07972071135, She is in Essex.  Photo on the "adopt a dog"  page.
