Dog of the week
Patsy

Patsy

Patsy

Gender/Age: female, 15years
Breed: collie cross
Colour: black
Location: Edenbridge

This is Patsy our dear 15 year old collie cross. After being in a loving home with a man she adored she sadly had to come back to last chance due to her owners ill health. Everyday we have noticed her age is catching up on her and she is starting be less active and having lack of energy to do anything. Most of this is due to being depressed in kennel and being very lonely. As Patsy is getting older we do not want her to die in kennels and we are desperately looking for a new home her before its too late. A year ago we had a health scare due to patsy having a brain lesion but since being on medication she has got a lot better but this can re occur anytime which can be fatal . She is very wobbly on her back legs but she still enjoys having a run about with her favourite toys. Patsy is looking for a adult home only who can give her the retirement home that she deserves and is in desperate need for. She is very affectionate but only on her own terms but enjoys having you around her. Patsy has been in the kennels now over 2 years now being over looked due to her age and health problems, but once someone gets too know this poor girl they will fall in love with her quirky ways and personality.

Scout

Scout

Scout

Gender/Age: male, 10yrs
Breed: lurcher
Colour: brindle
Location: New Romney

Scout is an incredibly friendly and loving dog who just wants all the love and fuss he can get! Sadly his owner passed away so this older boy is looking for his new forever home where he can be given unlimited cuddles! Scout is looking for an adult only home with no other pets and will need someone around most of the day (not just during the current restrictions) as he does suffer from some separation anxiety so will need to have the time he is left on his own built up very slowly and gradually. Unfortunately as Scout's previous owner was mostly housebound he wasn't walked very often which has resulted in him being reactive when he sees other animals, often pulling on the lead to get to them or barking and growling until he can no longer see the other animal so Scout would benefit from further socialisation around other dogs or may be better suited to someone with a large garden which he can sniff and explore in undisturbed. A complete and utter cuddle monster just looking for his forever retirement home.


Nash

Nash

Gender/Age: Male 5yrs
Breed: Jack Russell

He is a Happy chappy who is craving a lot of love. He has an infection on his rear end but is currently being treated here at last chance and is improving everyday. he is looking forward to finding a new loving home

Frankie

Frankie

Gender/Age: female, 6years

Craving for a lot of love and attention, Frankie enjoys her walks and having lots of cuddles. Please call for more information. Only dog in the home please.


Sophie

Sophie

Gender/Age: female, 4yrs
Breed: greyhound
Colour: Fawn
Location: New Romney

Sophie is big sweet shy girl looking for her new forever home after being retired as a racing dog. She would love someone around most of the day to take her on lovely walks where she can sniff and explore before settling down for a snooze or a cuddle on a big comfy bed or sofa! Sophie is good with other big dogs but as is usual with her breed will chase small furries so no cats or other small pets and we are suggesting calm sensible teenage children. As Sophie has been used as a racing dog she may need a little bit of time to adapt to home life but once she does she will make a wonderful loving companion.

Elsa

Elsa

Gender/Age: Female 2yrs
Breed: Greyhound

Breed: French bulldog
Colour: Fawn with black mask
Location: Edenbridge

Fergie is a beautiful girl who was rescued from Wales and came to us in a very poor state. Fergie has a few medical issues and needs ongoing medication and we are looking for a foster home for her. She is a very cheeky girl with a big personality, who will put a smile on anyone's face. Fergie loves going out for her walks and having lots of company. She needs further socialising with other dogs and is probably best suited as an only pet where she will receive all the love and attention she has missed out on up until now.

Lazer

Lazer

Gender/Age: Male 3yrs
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Lazer is a big strong boy who has now retired from his racing career. He would need a patient owner to help him get use to a home life as all he has ever known is kennel life. He does still have a high prey drive so couldn’t live with small dogs or cats. He is good with bigger dogs. He loves his walks and is always eager to go, so would benefit from an active home.


Ralph

Ralph

Gender/Age: male 3 yrs
Breed: Min Pin
Colour: Red
Location: Edenbridge

Ralph is a nice lad who is ok with some other dogs but must be only dog in home. He is not suitable to live with children or visiting children. Ralph is sweet and friendly when he knows you but is very wary of new people and doesn’t like to be approached by strangers when on lead. He has lots of energy and loves toys, so needs an active, adult only home with space to walk him in quiet areas and time to train him and help him with his issues.

Alfalfa

Alfalfa

Gender/Age: Male 3-4yrs
Breed: Saluki
Colour: Tri colour
Location: Edenbridge

Alfalfa is a handsome, lovely boy who loves his treats and food, but has shown some behavioural issues around guarding in his previous home, so would be best suited to a one to one Adult only home with an experienced owner.


Boycie

Boycie

Gender/Age: Male 5yrs
Breed: Staffie
Colour: Light brindle & white
Location: Edenbridge

Boycie came from a loving home. But since being in kennels has shut down and is very stressed, so needs a loving home to bring him back out of his shell and give him some much needed love.

Zac

Zac

Zac

Zac is a very cheeky boy and has such a big personality. He is a very sweet once he knows you but can also be unpredictable.

Flo

Flo

Gender/Age: Female, 4years
Breed: Boxer x
Colour: White
Location: Edenbridge

Flo is a sweet girl who has very clearly had a traumatic experience some time in her life. She loves attention and a fuss while showing off her tricks for a treat, however the minute she sees a lead she will freak out and start ragging the lead, not taking any attention of people. She will need a experienced owner who is very patient who can work with her to get her use to wearing and walking on the lead. She loves to play and goes crazy for every toy she has especially bouncy balls. It seems that Flo is deaf as she doesn't respond to any noises or her name. She is sadly not good with dogs. Flo would need a a adult only experienced home with someone who can show her love and trust.

Forest

Forest

Forest

Gender/Age: male, 4yrs
Breed: Sprocker
Colour: chocolate
Location: New Romney

Please read my write up very carefully as I am looking for a very experienced special adult only home. First of all, I am ENERGETIC! Not just 'likes a walk energetic' but 'wants to be on the go all day, every day' energetic! If I don't have a really good run I can get frustrated and cranky and unfortunately can take it out on whoever is nearest to me. Secondly, I have no recall, none whatsoever! You may call me but I have far too many sniffs to explore or things to chase to take any notice so I will need a really secure area where I can run and run and then run some more! I have a very loving cheeky side but I need routine, structure, exercise and an experienced person who knows how to deal with me. I can be ok with other dogs but am very full on and dominant so would be better as the only pet in the home. I can get protective of some toys or bones so need someone who has dealt with this kind of behaviour before and because I have places to go and things to do I am very, very strong on the lead so will need someone who can handle me. As you can see Forest is quite the character but comes with some challenging behaviour that will require a lot of hard work, time, patience and experience. We are looking for someone who has previous experience with challenging dogs and ideally someone who has a large secure bit of land where Forest will be able to run and burn off his energy. If you think you could offer Forest the right home please contact New Romney on 01797 366620 for more detailed information.


Fella

Fella

Gender/Age: Male 3yrs
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Fella is an ex-facing greyhound and he has a very high prey drive so must be the only pet in the home. Being an ex-racer he has only ever known kennel life therefore everything in a home will be new to him so he will need an understanding loving owner to help him adjust to retirement. Fella is good with bigger dogs.

Bo

Bo

Gender/Age: male, 2 yrs
Breed: cockerpoo
Colour: apricot
Location: New Romney

Bo is a very lively and energetic young boy who is looking for an adult only home. Bo was mistreated in the past which has made him wary and nervous of strangers which can often result in him reacting aggressively so he MUST go to a home that has previous experience of unpredictable dogs who can be aggressive and snappy and who will be able to give him lots of time and space to settle at his own pace. Any potential adopter must be prepared to make several visits to the centre to gain Bo's trust. Bo likes to be on the go all day so will need an active home where he can burn off lots of energy. He can be good with other dogs but can be quite dominant, especially over food and toys so may be better suited as the only animal in the home and he also has a high prey drive so will chase cats. If you are an experienced, understanding, patient person who thinks they can provide this little lad with the right home please call New Romney for a chat on 01797 366620.


Bodin

Bodin

Bodin

Gender/Age: Male 10yrs
Breed: Malamute
Colour: Coffee & cream
Location: Edenbridge

Bodin is a lovely big boy with a big character and like a typical Malamute he loves the sound of his own voice. He loves company and a fuss but very much on his own terms. He loves to lay in the sun and run through water to cool himself down. Bodin needs a very experienced adult only home with knowledge of the breed and with limited visitors as he needs very slow introduction to new people. Bodin is good with dogs on the lead but can be dominant off lead so needs to be the only pet in the home. Bodin would make a fantastic companion to someone who has the patience and understanding of his specific needs. Please contact us for more details.

Jake

Jake

Gender/Age: male, 3yrs
Breed: Beagle
Colour: tri colour
Location: Edenbridge

Jake is a big cheeky boy who is looking for his new forever home after originally coming to us due to his owner's newborn baby becoming allergic to Jake's fur. Since coming to us in August 2019 Jake has been into 2 different homes but returned both times. This is due to Jake having some behavioural issues, most likely because he was never given the proper training and care in his formative months as a young pup. Firstly, Jake is a typical beagle - he LOVES food and he loves to steal anything and everything! However, this can lead to some occasional possessive behaviour so we are looking for someone who is both beagle experienced and has previous experience of dealing with possessive/guarding traits. Secondly, Jake bonds very well with his human and can be very loving and loyal but does not like to share his human so he will need to go to a home where he can have one to one interaction. Jake is good with other dogs but not cats and will need an adult only home. He is very playful and cheeky and will make an absolutely wonderful companion for the right person. If you are interested in giving this handsome cheeky chappy a home please phone the New Romney branch for more information on 01732 865530.


Cobi

Cobi

Gender/Age: male, 6years
Breed: Jack Russell
Colour: tan and white
Location: Edenbridge

Cobi is a very happy dog when he feels safe, but when he feels scared or frightened he will lash out and will bite if given the chance. When he knows you he can be very affectionate. We are looking for a very understanding and strictly adult only home with no children visiting please as Cobi needs a special person who can give him the time and patience he requires. Preferably with females owners. Please call to find out more information about this little character.

Tito

Tito

Tito

Gender/Age: male, 4 yrs
Breed: lurcher
Colour: tan
Location: New Romney

Tito is a very energetic, loving boy who is looking for his forever home where he can be given time and space to settle at his own pace. Tito has had a difficult start in life after being found as a stray and it's possible he was mistreated at some point as he can be very reactive around fast movements which tend to startle him easily. He is good with other dogs, although can be quite jealous if they get the attention rather than him so would be better suited as the only animal living in an adult only home. We are ideally looking for someone with experience of lurchers and who has time to help Tito feel safe and settled in his new home, preferably one person on their own as he doesn't like to share his human! Tito really is such a loving boy who just needs a calm owner to help him feel safe and loved, if you are interested or would like more information on this handsome boy please call the New Romney centre to talk to a member of staff.


Buster

Buster

Buster

Gender/Age: Male 6yrs
Breed: Patterdale x
Colour: Black
Location: New Romney

Buster is a cheeky chappy who is looking for a loving patient home to call his own. He was originally found as a stray so we don't have much past history on him but it is possible he was mistreated as he is wary of strangers and absolutely terrified of loud noises. He isn't very keen on going for walks which tend to make him quite stressed but he simply LOVES chasing tennis balls so he would be better suited to someone with a large garden or bit of land where he can safely explore and play. Buster can sometimes exhibit compulsive behaviour as a stress response i.e circling if he is frightened but we have been working with him at the centre and have found he can be distracted by a treat or squeaky ball. Buster is a high energy dog and finds kennel life quite stressful so we would love to see him in a home, preferably in a one to one situation with someone who is experienced with the breed. Buster can be good with other dogs but will chase cats and he will need an adult only home. Once he knows and trusts you he is a very loving and loyal boy who just needs someone to give him a chance. Please call the New Romney branch on 01797 366620 for more information about this lovely lad.

Taylor

Taylor

Taylor

Gender/Age: Male, 5 years
Breed: Border Collie
Colour: black and white
Location: Edenbridge

Taylor is a very active dog who needs a lot of exercise and stimulation. He can be unpredictable therefore needs an adult home only. He is usually friendly and wants attention but on his own terms. Would benefit from having a lot of land to run around on and an owner very experienced with Border Collies. Handsome guy needing a special home.


Gucci

Gucci

Gucci

Gender/Age: Female, 12 years
Breed: Jack Russell x
Colour: White & Brown
Location: New Romney

Gucci is a very independent strong willed lady, who is very affectionate once she trusts you but this is on her own terms. She needs someone who is able to visit her regularly before she goes home so she can accept you in her own time and learn to trust you. Once she trusts you she is very friendly and will seek affection, ear tickles are her favourite! She loves wondering around and going for walks, but must be kept on lead as she has no recall and will just do whatever she pleases. She is good with other dogs, but is very dominant and so if living with another dog, they must be submissive or accepting of her. We are looking for a quiet, adult only home where she can enjoy the rest of her retirement. Gucci does have Cushing's disease and so we at Last Chance are managing this, but she will need regular check ups to ensure she is doing well. We are happy to get her fostered or adopted, so if interested please do ring us on 01797 366620 to discuss.

Fenton

Fenton

Gender/Age: Male 7yrs
Breed: Labrador x Airedale x Patterdale
Colour: Black and White
Location: Edenbridge

Fenton loves to play and spend time with people. However, unfortunately he has had numerous homes in his 4 years which makes him anxious and he was never given the appropriate socialising and attention as a puppy therefore has some problems now. He does not like other animals including other dogs in or out of the home, he also does not like postmen/women and people who come to the door, although once they are in the house he is such a friendly, happy dog you would think he had a secret twin! He must go to a responsible, adult only home with people that can give him lots of well deserved attention.

Here is what our staff have to say: Fenton is a very friendly affectionate boy. He loves bringing you his toys , he doesn't want you to touch them just look at them while you stroke and fuss him. He has a very high prey drive and becomes very fixated when he think he has a scent. He will dig and dig and dig in a certain spot if he thinks something is there so he does have to be pulled away to make him snap out of this, often he will come away covered in mud all proud of himself. Sadly Fenton doesn't like other dogs mainly collies, he can walk calmly on a lead but if a dog comes up to him he will tell them off and go for them, so therefore he would have to go to a home as a only pet. Maybe in time with a lot of socialising he can slowly be introduced to some dogs. Fenton is a very loyal dog to his owner so would always want to protect them from harm, So slow introduction to new people and strangers is best done very slowly. Sadly one thing he always sees as a threat is the Postman/woman, whenever they approach he will lunge and go for them protecting his home, hopefully this is something that could be sorted with a post-box outside the house or a porch so Fenton never has to actually meet the postman/woman, same could be said for deliveries etc. Cyclists are also a fear he has so likes to protect himself before he gets hurt (he doesn't understand that cyclists wont hurt him). In the home however Fenton is absolutely lovely and sweet, he will just want to be around you getting fussed. He loves all toys , fluffy ones , squeaky ones and rubber ones . He so cheeky when coming back from his walks in the centre, that he quickly pulls into empty kennels to look and steal from the other dogs. His kennel is always covered in toys on the floor and in his bed, its surprising he even has space to lay down or sleep, but he does manage to fit in with his cuddly bears and get snug with them. He unfortunately hasn't had the best training and missed all that as a puppy and has spent most of his puppy and young ages in kennels. He would love a adult home with someone who can show him the love and training he needs. He would make a lovely pet and will make you smile on a daily basis.

Thank you Carrie


Monty

Monty

Monty

Gender/Age: Male 8yrs
Breed: Lurcher
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

Monty is a such a handsome young man who would love to go to a nice new home. Monty loves to be around people and is really quite affectionate. However, similar to so many rescue dogs we collect as strays Monty was obviously never socialised as a pup and so he is dog aggressive. This is something that could maybe change over time with the correct training classes and devotion. We really would like to see Monty go out to an adult home with no other animals.

Here is what the staff have to say:

Monty has come from a bad past. He has a hunched back where the vets think he was kept in a crate that was too small for him for a long period of time. Because of this he does have bad trust issues so would need someone who can help show monty that not everyone is bad. Monty is not good with any animals and will bark and pull to them. Unfortunately he gets so frustrated that he hits your leg when wanting to get to other dogs. So he is to be muzzled when out in public. He is improving very quickly when out on the lead now. He can calmly walk with a dog in sight and not bark or hit your leg. He would never be able to meet dogs but would love a home with someone who can keep up his training and continue the work with him. In the home he is very cuddly and affectionate but has to be on his terms. He would love a big bed to stretch out on as he loves to sleep! Playing chase in a enclosed area with a ball or fluffy toy is his heaven! Carrie x

Alfie

Alfie

Gender/Age: Male 8yrs
Breed: Staffie X
Colour: Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

Alfie is a very lively lad, who can be a little unpredictable. He is full of life and needs lots of exercise and would probably be best homed to someone who has experience of the breed. Alfie is good with other dogs but needs a calm home so we are suggesting no children. Read more about Alfie by clicking on 'Home2home' above tool bar.
