Dog of the week
Bullet & Shadow

Bullet & Shadow

Bullet & Shadow

Gender/Age: Male 12yrs & 5yrs
Breed: Lurcher & Whippet
Colour: Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

Bullets original owner had sadly passed away, so she went to live with her owners son and his dog Shadow but now due to the landlord saying they can no longer keep pets in the home, they have come to us for re-homing. Both are a very loving pair and like attention and a fuss. They both have a very good appetite and love their food. Bullet would love a nice comfy bed to curl up and go to sleep on and watch the world go by, shadow has a lot of energy and loves his active walk to help burn off his energy. Bullet and Shadow hate to be left and will howl and bark if they are left for a long period of time. We are looking for a loving home for both of these ideally they both need different homes to benefit them however they have such a good bond that they cannot be separated. So we are looking for a home that can accommodate both of them, a nice quiet home for her to retire in but active enough that you can take shadow on long walks while Bullet lays in bed at home in the sunshine.

Rolo

Rolo

Gender/Age: Male 6yrs
Breed: Chihuahua
Colour: chocolate & cream
Location: Edenbridge

Rolo is a typical nervous chihuahua. He is very friendly once he knows you and will happily sit on your lap for a cuddle and love. However he is very nervous around new people and will need a lot of time to settle in. He is protective of his home and will need a quiet adult only home with someone in all the time to help him come out his shell.


Poppy

Poppy

Gender/Age: Female 16mths
Breed: JRT x Cocker spaniel
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Poppy is a very sweet loving dog when she knows you but at first can be a little timid of strangers and also shows a dislike to the postmen. She is great with other dogs but advised to be kept on the lead as Poppy has a very high prey drive. She constantly needs her mind to be busy so needs a very active home.

Arna

Arna

Gender/Age: Female 3yrs
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Black & white
Location: New Romney

Arna is a very sweet young girl looking for a loving forever home after being used as a racing greyhound. As she is an ex racer she is not used to living in a home but they do adjust and adapt quite quickly and are very skilled at locating the comfiest beds or sofas! Arna is good with other dogs but will chase cats and we are suggesting calm sensible older children. Arna would love someone around most of the day to give her all of the love and attention she has been missing out on and she will be a loving and loyal companion for the right family so please consider opening your heart and sofa to this gorgeous girl!


Symba

Symba

Gender/Age: female, 1.5yrs
Breed: Boxer
Colour: Tan and white
Location: New Romney

Symba is a very friendly bouncy strong girl who sadly hasn't had the best start in life. She has been used for breeding, passed from pillar to post and then mistreated by her previous owners who felt violence was the best way to make her behave. Despite all of this Symba is a happy cheeky girl who just loves people and wants to be with them all the time. Because of her bad start she does have some obedience and recall issues but with time, patience, routine and gentle reward based learning she will hopefully improve in this area. She is good with other dogs but will chase cats and is great with children, although we are suggesting older children as she doesn't know her own strength and will knock little ones flying! We are looking for a very active experienced home that can give Symba the exercise and training she needs, and will need someone home most of the day as she doesn't like to be left for too long. Please consider giving this beautiful girl the loving home she deserves.

Pixie

Pixie

Gender/Age: female, 4-5 years
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

Beautiful girl pixie is a very gentle girl who loves to be around people and enjoys her long walks. Being an ex racer she will have to be muzzled in public as she does not like small furries especially cats. Looking for a home who can give her the exercise she needs and the TLC she deserves. Good with other dogs but not trusted around small dogs.


Arlo

Arlo

Gender/Age: Male 9 months
Breed: Staffy X
Colour: Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

Arlo is a cheeky, playful boy that loves nothing more than to be around people. He is still very much puppy like and loves to play with toys, not that they last long around him. He has been around other dogs but would benefit from further socialising. Arlo is strong on the lead so will need plenty of training with this and also training in general. Arlo is a bouncy and can be boisterous, he can find walks overwhelming at the moment and gets anxious and frustrated and takes it out on the lead as well as you. So he will need an experienced owner to help him overcome his worries about walking. In his previous home Arlo was very cheeky and would steal toilet roll and bath mats to play with. He also loves frozen carrots and enrichment toys to keep his mind occupied. Arlo needs an active adult only home with someone with experience and also the time and patience to put into training to help this cheeky puppy become a loving dog.

Monty

Monty

Monty

Monty

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

This is Monty he has been with us for nearly 7 years and rarely gets asked after sadly. Monty has come from a bad past. Poor Monty has a hunched back which the vets think was caused by his previous owners keeping him 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 him that not everyone is bad. Since being with us Monty has become very loving towards the staff and loves to have attention and cuddles on the sofa, but of course this has taken time and patience to achieve and we want to be frank about his hang ups. Actually, Monty only wants one loving owner, he doesn't want to share and can become very jealous which may lead to him being aggressive. He is not good with any animals and will bark and pull towards them and needs to be muzzled in public places. Unfortunately, he gets so frustrated that he hits your legs when wanting to get to other dogs, so his new owner needs to be quite strong. However, since being at Last Chance Monty can now calmly walk with a dog in sight and not bark or hit your legs but this will take time to achieve in his new home. He would never be able to meet or live with dogs but would love a home with someone who can keep up his training and continue the work we have done with him. He loves to run and chase tennis balls, the only problem there is he just doesn’t know he is meant to bring them back! So lots of balls required! The reason we have had Monty with us for so long is that he is not an easy dog but we are sure there may be someone out there he could call his own and will love him for what he is, a slightly damaged rogue! So to sum up we are looking for an adult only, single person home with no other pets, lots of patience, love, garden and tennis balls! Lots of visits to spend time with him before adoption would be required, so someone not too far from us would be ideal (unless you love long and frequent journeys)! If you feel you could be Monty's 'human' please contact us, we would love to hear from you.


Aurora

Aurora

Aurora

Gender/Age: Female 6-8yrs
Breed: Malamute
Colour: Grey & white
Location: Edenbridge

Aurora is a typical malamute that loves the sound of her own voice. She doesn't like to be left so would need someone who is home most of the day. She has come to us very matted so would need some gentle brushing to help get these mats out as she is not keen on having this done. Aurora is good with some dogs on slow introduction but would need more socialising and training with smaller dogs. We are looking for a active pet free adult only home for Aurora, as she has a lot of energy and does not know her own strength and size.

Reggie

Reggie

Gender/Age: Male 1yr
Breed: Staffie
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

Reggie is a big bouncy staffy. He is a typical staffy and has a lot of energy to burn, so he will need an active household with someone who can give him plenty of exercise. He loves his toys but they don't seem to last long around him, he also likes to steal tissues. He loves a fuss and to be around people, so will need someone home most of the time. He walks very nicely on the lead, but would benefit from training and socialising.


Jake & Marley

Jake & Marley

Jake & Marley

Jake & Marley

Gender/Age: Male, 5-6years
Breed: Chihuahua
Colour: Tan
Location: Edenbridge

Jake and Marley are two typical Chihuahua who have a lot to say for themselves. They are very affectionate dogs and love to be around people but they also like to rule to the roost.

If you would like to know a little more about these two then please give us a call.

Otis

Otis

Otis

Gender/Age: male, 2 years
Breed: mastiff cross
Colour: tan
Location: Edenbridge

Otis is a big friendly boy who loves his walks and playing ball. He loves nothing more then being around people so will need a home with someone who has the time for him. He is very powerful on the lead but does listen when he is told. Being such a big boy he needs a very strong active owner who is willing to put in the training and further socialising with other dogs. We are looking for an adult only home for this lovely big boy.


Bruce

Bruce

Bruce

Gender/Age: male, 8yrs
Breed: Staffy
Colour: Black & white
Location: New Romney

Bruce has come to us through no fault of his own as his owner sadly couldn't care for him anymore. Bruce is a very sweet, friendly boy who has previously lived with cats, dogs and children and is looking for his new forever home with someone around most of the day to give him the love and attention he deserves. Although he is an older boy he is still very active and loves exploring and going for nice walks but he can be quite strong on the lead so will need someone capable of handling him. If you have room in your heart and home for this gorgeous senior pup please fill out an adoption request form or give us a call on 01797 366620

Electra

Electra

Electra

Gender/Age: Female 2-3yrs
Breed: Kangal
Colour: fawn and black
Location: Edenbridge

Electra is a gentle giant who can be a little shy at first when meeting you. We are looking for a home who is used to having giant breeds before due to her size and the power behind her as she doesn’t realise her own strength. She walks well on the lead but when she sees something she’s interested in she is very strong so Electra needs a strong active owner who can give her the exercise she requires. She loves her squeaky toys and goes mad for them as she is very playful, loves lots of cuddles and generally loves being around people. Good with most male dogs but could do with further socialising. If you can give this big girl a place in your heart and home then give us a call. Older children only due to size and large secure garden required. Also Electra needs to be the only pet in the home please.


Bigman

Bigman

Gender/Age: male, 3 years
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Bigman can be very hyper but once he has had a good run and a walk he is happy to spend the rest of the day snoozing. He is very friendly and loves to be around people, good with other dogs but advised to be muzzles around small furries as Bigman is a ex racing greyhound.

Layla

Layla

Gender/Age: Female 4 years
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Fawn
Location: Edenbridge

Layla is a very energetic girl who loves to have cuddles. Inside the home Layla is well behaved and loves to play in the garden where she has a mad 5 minutes running crazy. Once Layla is settled and happy in her family she becomes protective of them, this means that when she is out and about she is very vocal to people she sees or people approaching her family home. Layla improved in her previous home whilst out on walks but became very focused with people passing close by. So would need more training and socialising to help her get over this. She is nervous of dog’s especially large dogs so again would need socialising to help her overcome this. We are looking for a pet free active adult home for Layla preferably someone with experience of the breed. She has a lot of love to give and does love to show it when she knows and trusts you.


Max

Max

Max

Gender/Age: Male 2-3yrs
Breed: Border Collie
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

Max has sadly been returned to us unexpectantly. Max can be very affectionate and loves cuddles and attention when he knows and trusts you. If you aren't stroking him enough, he will let you know by nudging you with his paws! He loves chew toys and playing fetch with tennis balls, but can be reluctant to give the ball back! He is incredibly active and inquisitive when out for his walks. He is very strong and will pull quite hard on his lead, but has no recall so cannot be off the lead at present. Max is not good with other dogs, and will bark for our entire walk if there are other dogs around us. Max is unpredictable around people; there are some that he bonds with instantly and others that he will take a dislike too. Max is quite protective of his house and things and will bark at any people passing the house or coming to the door. We are looking for an experienced adult only home with no visiting children. He would benefit with someone who is active and has knowledge of the breed and behavioural issues.

Harper

Harper

Harper

Gender/Age: Female 3 – 4 years
Breed: Lurcher
Colour: Brindle
Location: Edenbridge

Harper is very stressed in here in our kennels in the short time she has been with us but has loved her big comfy bed that she lounges in. She loves her walks and investigating all the smells. She does seem to want to chase squirrels and birds on the ground so we think she may have a high prey drive. Harper would benefit from training and further socialising. She loves attention but can get carried away and jumps up for more.


Mr Roly

Mr Roly

Gender/Age: Male 2years
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Mr Roly has a big personality and loves to go out for his walks. He enjoys company and always on the go so needs someone who can give him plenty of exercise. Needs to be muzzled in public due to being an ex racer. Loves to have his zoomies.

Buster

Buster

Gender/Age: Male 8yrs
Breed: Patterdale
Colour: Black
Location: New Romney

Buster is looking for a very special adult only home who has lots of experience with dogs with behavioural issues and also someone who is familiar with the Patterdale breed. Buster originally came to us as a stray so we have no previous history on him but we suspect he was tied up and left due to the marks present on his neck when he first arrived at the centre. Sadly Buster has been returned to us several times over the last 4 years which really is a terrible shame as he has so much love and loyalty to give to the right person who is prepared to give him lots of time and help to settle. What we know about Buster - he is sometimes frightened of being outside and can become very agitated on a walk, often lunging at other dogs and people. All of this is fear based - he is just so overwhelmed and frightened by the big outside that he can't cope with too much coming at him at once so it is for this reason that he will either need a large garden to exercise in or someone who has a secure piece of land where he can safely explore and anyone who adopts Buster must accept that he may never be comfortable going for a walk. Buster is also very frightened of loud noises and will become agitated and constantly circle if he can't get to his 'safe zone' (in this case his kennel), sometimes he can be distracted with a squeaky toy or treat (both of which he loves!) but other times he can't calm down until he is removed from the situation entirely. Lastly, Buster loves his human so much that he cannot tolerate sharing them so will need a home which doesn't have any visitors or has somewhere safe and secure and separate for him to go for a short while if visitors come into the home. Anyone interested in adopting Buster must be prepared to visit the centre a few times a week for 1-2 months to establish a relationship with him before he will be ready to go home and he will be better suited as the only pet in the home as he doesn't like to share his toys. Buster will make an amazing companion and friend for the right person - he is a cheeky, funny, energetic boy who loves to play (especially with squeaky balls or a paddling pool!) and have lots of cuddles with his human - if you feel you could offer a forever loving home for this boy please call New Romney on 01797 366620.


Jake

Jake

Jake

Gender/Age: Male 4yrs
Breed: Beagle
Colour: Tri colour
Location: Edenbridge

Jake is one of our long termers who unfortunately is very misunderstood and has to be accepted for his cheeky ways. We are looking for a very strict one to one home with a single adult and no young children visiting. He needs an owner who has the patience and time for him. Jake is very food oriented and when he is around or near food he will try his very best to get his paws on it, meaning he will try and get into the cupboards and fridge at all costs. If he gets hold of anything he will guard and will bite if you try to take it away so there are tricks and ways around this.

Once he is settled Jake can be very affectionate and loves cuddles on the sofa, he also loves his toys and can be very entertaining. Jake loves his long walks and always has his nose to the ground smelling everything, so it can take a while to get anywhere with him. Jake also has a very high prey drive due to his breed so we recommend to never let Jake off the lead. One to one adult home only.

Mega Mike

Mega Mike

Gender/Age: Male 2-3yrs
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

Mega Mike is a very friendly boy who LOVES his toys, he walks great on the lead and happy to be around other big dogs. We do suggest muzzling him around small furries due to being an ex racing greyhound. Loves affection and having a good whizz about.


Yacht

Yacht

Gender/Age: female, 2 years
Breed: Greyhound
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Yacht is very shy at first and takes her a while to come around. Once she knows she’s safe Yacht loves to have company and having cuddles. Yacht is an ex racing greyhound so everything is new to her but doesn’t take her long to get used to her new surroundings.

Forest

Forest

Forest

Gender/Age: male, 5yrs
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.


Ralph

Ralph

Gender/Age: Male 3yrs
Breed: Min Pin
Colour: Tan
Location: Edenbridge

Ralph is a lovely affectionate boy but has issues and needs a adult only home with and experienced owner who is patient and will give Ralph the time and space he requires. sadly he is not suitable to be homed with children. He loves to cuddle up on the sofa and loves a fuss. He loves to play ball and loves his toys! In the home he is like a big puppy and will follow you everywhere once he knows you. Ralph has fear based aggression when it comes to meeting people he doesn’t know or new environments. This causes him to become very vocal and snap when he is scared. He will need a very experienced one to one, adult only home, with someone with the time and dedication that he deserves!

Taylor

Taylor

Taylor

Gender/Age: Male 5yrs
Breed: Border Collie
Colour: Black & white
Location: Edenbridge

Taylor is a very energetic boy! He can be obedient and knows a few commands, he loves going for long walks and walks well on the lead so this will help burn off some of his energy. He does enjoy playing fetch/chase but only on his terms so once he has had enough then he will simply stop playing. Taylor is reactive to cars / traffic so would need a home on a quiet street where walks with busy roads can be avoided. Due to Taylor’s behaviour issues we are looking for a very specific home for him. The home he needs is a single person only who has experience not only with the breed but dogs with behavioural issues with no visitors. Ideally a home with a bit of land or a large garden for him to explore safely. Any potential new owner for Taylor would be required to come and meet him a few times to help build a bond before adopting him. If you are interested and think you are able to offer Taylor the home he needs please get in contact by completing one of our adoption questionnaires mentioning his name on the form and a member of staff will get back to you.


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. So is best left alone when he goes into his scared state, this usually occurs when he hears loud bangs. When he knows you he can be very affectionate and loves to sit on your head looking out the window. We are looking for a very understanding one-person adult home for Cobi with no children visiting please and no other pets. Cobi would need to go to someone who has experience dealing with JRT as Cobi needs a special person who can give him the time and patience he requires. Please call to find out more information about this little character.

Danny Boy

Danny Boy

Gender/Age: Male 10years
Breed: Scottie/Carne X
Colour: Black
Location: Edenbridge

Danny Boy is a lovely boy once he knows you, he has to have a female owner on a one to one basis, this is all due to him being mistreated. Unfortunately this poor sad little lad, through no fault of his own was kicked and abused in his previous home, living day after day in constant fear, hiding and cowling away from his owner.

This is a very sad case due Danny Boy’s previous male owner who was sadly suffering with-Alzheimers and didn’t realise what he was inflicting on his once best friend.

Please therefore understand why our darling sad, confused, untrustworthy, frightened little Danny boy can be unpredictable towards men, and is quite nervous when first meeting you and needs to settle in slowly. Is there someone out there that can reassure him, give back the love he once knew, to enable him to trust that once again, like the song above will there ever be any pipes a calling for our Danny Boy?????? Or does he have to continue to hope, dream, wish for someone to call his name.

Look into those eyes, see his pain, reach out to him, give him a chance, give him time to trust you, give him back his life, give him the confidence, patience and love that he needs, LOVE that we all need. I know the right person is out there, make our Danny Boy’s wish come true, a loving home this Christmas, that day and every other one there on, FIND HIM A HOME PLEASE.

MORE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR BOY For those of you that feel you can give our little lad the right home, you would have to visit him on a regular basis, over weeks, even maybe months for him to get used to you and to start to trust you, so this is something that must be considered.

Danny is ideally looking for a quiet home, with a female that does not have regular visitors, with NO CHILDREN, MEN OR OTHER PETS. Danny needs to be his on boss, not be confronted by things or over stimulated or trying to teach him. Danny I would say at the moment, but who knows in the future, is currently not a companion pet, and would not understand or want loads of cuddles or fuss. Like I say he might be the most adorable companion, but this would take time.

Consideration must be taken when out with Danny, due to his fear of people, especially men, you would need to keep a distance from people and dogs whilst walking our Danny boy.

For more information on Danny please call our staff at the Edenbridge rescue 01732 865530


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.

Tito

Tito

Tito

Gender/Age: male, 6yrs
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.


Alfie

Alfie

Alfie

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

Alfie has been with us for some time now due to his behavioural issues, he originally came to us from the welsh pound with no history so we have no idea what traumas he had been through before he got to us. Alfie doesn’t like meeting new people and can be very protective of his area, for these reasons we have come to the conclusion that it would be too stressful for Alfie to be rehomed so he will be staying with us living out his years in a safe environment that he is comfortable with and has members of staff that he has developed a good relationships with. Alfie loves playing ball, lazing in the sun and peaceful walks around our private fields. If you would like to join Alfie's fan club please use the contact form to let us know - your sponsorship will help us supply Alfie with all the things he loves, tennis balls and favourite snack Schmackos! Along with all the care, love and food he receives at the centre of course.
