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 popular 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.

Diesel and Blade

Diesel and Blade

Diesel and Blade, our two staffies, are mother and son. They are thirteen and twelve years old, and are very close. They are both very sweet dogs and love lots of cuddles.


Although they are seniors, they both enjoy their daily walks and are fine with dogs out. However, Blade cannot go off-lead as he is quite naughty and will run off! So, he would need to be kept on a long line.


They cannot live with cats or small furries but could possibly live with quiet children over the age of twelve years.


We would love for them to find their forever retirement home together, so if you love staffies and feel you could give them the love they deserve please give us a call.

Spirit

Spirit

Spirit is a stunning Czech Wolf Dog. He is looking for an experienced owner in his breed or similar. He has a lovely nature and is great with other dogs. He cannot live with cats but can live with children age ten years and over.


He would make a great addition to any family but time would be needed to teach him some manners and he has no recall unless treats are involved !  Spirit is such a loveable boy but he is extremely strong on the lead especially if he sees cats or small furries so any new owner would need to be aware of this.


Because of his size he would need a large enclosed garden and plenty of exercise.


If you feel you could offer this beautiful boy his forever home please give us a call.

Stella

Stella

Stella is a two and a half year old medium sized cross breed. She is good with dogs and children of all ages, she loves spending time playing with other dogs in our field.


She was brought in to the Sanctuary as she was not being walked much due to work commitments and was urinating in the home. However since being back at the Sanctuary she has been checked out by the vet and it was discovered she had a urine infection which she has now been treated for. 


Please call the Sanctuary for more details.

Sundae

Sundae

Sundae is a beautiful 6 yr old female Husky who needs to go to a home with no children or cats, she is very good with dogs out on walks but wouldnt want to live with another dog.


Sundae has a very high prey drive so is not good around any type of livestock especially sheep and horses.


Sundae sadly has suffered from neglect so will need a home with somone who has the time and understanding of this as she will show little affection towards a new owner initially. Once she gets to know you her playful cheeky side will come out. 


Sundae does go home some nights with a member of staff  even though she copes well in kennels, this is so we can have a better understanding of how she would cope in a home. The only negative we have found is that she does suffer from separation anxiety so would need to be with someone who doesnt need to leave her for long periods. 


Sundae will only be rehomed to someone who is experienced in having this breed type
