the Month


Poor Kane hasn't had much luck bless him - he originally came into us a stray back in August 2015 and although an owner came forward they decided they didn't want him back as kept trying to escape. He was rehomed but then returned as he didn't get on with the other dog in the home. We struck lucky in November 2015 and Kane has been living happily in his home since then. Unfortunately due to a change in circumstances meant that Kane was being left for long periods of time which he didn't take too kindly to and so it was decided to have him back at the kennels to once again search for a new home.

Kane is seriously not doing well in kennels and gets even more stressed as each day passes by. According to his last owner he a great dog, good with children (10 and 13), can pull on the lead, he is house-trained but does get quite stressed travelling and being left. 

Since being here we have found him to be super friendly, he loves everyone and has walked around with other dogs no problem, although we prefer that he is the only dog in the household. He loves to have a pootle around the playpen but he doesn't really play. Up for most things - this lad doesn't let his age hold him back in any way. 

He would definitely need someone around most of the day - if he sees people he just wants to be with them but at 5pm he settles down through the night.

Not cat tested and no under 5's

KANE IS NOW IN FOSTER BUT STILL UP FOR ADOPTION. His foster parents can't say enough good things about him and he has settled really well - clean in the house, super friendly and good around other dogs. He has had a few lumps removed which according to the vet may come back but nothing concerning. Viewings by appoinment only :) 

If you think you can offer  KANE  the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on

Thank you!
