Dog of the week
Paddy

Paddy

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

Urgent home needed for poor boy Paddy who is now in a foster home but we are looking for a forever home for this gorgeous boy. He is a racing greyhound and unfortunately broke his back leg. He has had his op so looking for a nice quiet retirement home/foster for him to recover in. Happy boy and loves having fuss, he is very sad in kennels so if you can help this poor boy then please give us a call. Good with big dogs.

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.


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 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.

Alfie and Boe

Alfie and Boe

Gender/Age: males, 10 years
Breed: Bichons
Colour: White
Location: New Romney

Alfie and Boe are two lovely, adoring boys. They can have quite loud voices when they want to, which is most often when they want a fuss! They will need to be rehomed together as they enjoy each other's company. They are ok with other dogs, but we are suggesting they are homed as the only dogs in the home as well as older children only. They will need access to a garden where they can potter about and they both enjoy regular walks outside.

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. They can become protective of one person which causes them to growl and bark so they are looking for a very experienced adult home who are used to this breed. If you would like to know a little more about these two then please give us a call.


Meshka

Meshka

Meshka

Gender/Age: Female, 6 years
Breed: Malamute
Location: Edenbridge

Meshka is a real gentle giant with a big personality to match her size! She’s a sweet natured girl who loves to give kisses and isn’t shy about letting you know when she wants attention and she can be quite vocal. She loves company and gentle tummy rubs, but will take herself to bed if she wants to relax.

She is well house trained and walks nicely on lead. Sadly she is quite overweight and on a diet to help lose that weight and hopefully ease her knee pains. She still enjoys a couple of short walks a day and is looking for a quiet home with easy access to a garden where she can potter around and enjoy the fresh air.

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.


Outlaw

Outlaw

Outlaw

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

Outlaw is a very nervous boy. He will need a very understanding home to help bring him out of his shell and learn to trust people. He is an ex-racer so will need to be walked with a muzzle in public. Having spent all his life in kennels he will need time to adjust to a home environment so will need a quiet adult only home with someone around most of the time.

Monty

Monty

Monty

Monty

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

Monty has been with us for nearly 7 years and rarely gets asked after. 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. Since being with us Monty has become very loving towards the staff and loves to have attention and cuddles on the sofa. 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. Since being at last chance Monty can now 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. He loves to run and chase tennis balls but doesn’t know he had to bring them back. We are looking for an adult only single person home with no other pets.


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


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.

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.

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.


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.
