Dogs

A recent study in welfare kennels showed that there are noticeable peaks in dogs showing stress when site is open to visitors and that 90% of kennelled dogs were showing this!

Therefore, as of 1st January 2019 after a successful trial, we will be introducing a new procedure for the viewing of dogs by appointment only.  In line with other major animal welfare organisations we will no longer allow public access to our kennel runs.

Viewing will be by appointment only and suitable dog(s) will be brought up for you to meet.  We request that other visitors do not walk around the kennels; all other areas will be open as usual to visitors.

We are hoping that this will not impact on the numbers of our dogs finding new homes but having spoken to other similar organisations this has not been the case, and a tremendous difference has been made to the dogs' welfare.

 

All dogs that are adopted from Woodside have to have a pre home visit before going out.  The Trust do not home to a property with no or communual garden.  A garden will need to be fully enclosed with 6ft fencing before a dog is rehoused.

 

Dogs available for adoption include:

Alfie

Alfie

Alfie is a friendly 4 year old Greyhound. He is good with other dogs and older children, he is an ex-racing greyhound so cannot live with cats or small animals.


Contrary to belief greyhounds do not need a lot of exercise, they like to have a quick sprint and then usually just plod with their owners. They are actually quite lazy dogs !


If you feel you could offer Alfie his forever home please give us a call.


New owners must be aware Alfie will need to be muzzled at all times when out in public due to a very high prey drive.

Bailey

Bailey

Bailey is a 6 year old Malamute x Gsd. She is looking for an owner who has experience with this breed of dog. She can be a little reserved with new people at first but once she knows you she is so sweet and affectionate. We believe she has had several different homes in the past and the last home was only for a week so we do not have a lot of history on her. She has been socialised here with dogs and is doing great so far. 


She can live with children over the age of 10 years, but she would need to be the only pet in the home.


If you would like to meet Bailey please call us.

He is okay with other dogs out and enjoys his daily walks, and he travels well in the car.

Pepper

Pepper

Pepper is an adorable little Jack Russell who had to be returned to us because his owner sadly passed away.


He is now looking for his forever retirement home as he is twelve years old. He is a friendly little chap who still enjoys his walks, and is good with dogs out and about.


Although Pepper is good with everyone he meets we have put an age restriction of ten plus with children because of his age.


He would ideally suit a quiet home where his new owner is home most of the time as this is what he has been use to.


Pepper as like a lot of terriers is not keen on cats ! 


If you think you can give little Pepper lots of love and cuddles please call us.

Tina

Tina

Tina is a 5 year old Labrador cross who is looking for a home as the only pet.  She is such a sweet, lovely girl but does suffer from seperation anxiety and will need someone who is home the majority of the day.


She is very good with dogs out on a walk but needs to be the only dog in the home as she can become quite jealous in a confined area.


Tina has so much potential but is a very needy dog so will need strict boundaries and a routine.

Zeus

Zeus

Zeus is a happy friendly chocolate labrador, he is approx. six years old. He was brought to Woodside because his owner was moving and they were not allowed to take him to their rented property.


Although he cannot live with cats, Zeus is good with other dogs out and about and has actually lived with another dog in the past. It may benefit him to live with a dog again as he is not keen on being left. Alternatively an owner who is home most of the time would be ideal. 


We have put an age restriction of five plus to live with children as,although he is good, he is quite boisterous.


If you think you can offer Zeus his forever home please call us.
