the Week!


Meet the very loveable Yoda who has come into us as a stray so sadly no history. Since he has been with us he has shown himself to be a very friendly boy who loves fuss. Yoda is ok on the lead but can pull a bit when he gets carried away sniffing but with firm handling will walk nicely. He knows a few basic commands such as sit and has been off the lead on our top field where he loves to have a good run around but soon comes back to check your still there.  
Yoda has walked round with Shamus many times and is always very well behaved, not really showing any interest in other dogs. He has also come nose to nose with Tag in the playpen tail wagging!  Yoda likes his toys but he loves his Kong bone the most and is very gentle when having treats will sit quietly until you give him one. 
Yoda is a lovely dog who would make someone a lovely companion or a very good family pet. Not cat tested and no children under the age of 5 due to history not being known. 

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