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 yrs 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 although 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.

Koda

Koda

 


Koda is  two years old and he is a boxer cross. He is a friendly bundle of energy who is looking for an active home preferably with someone who has had experience with the boxer breed. 


He is okay with dogs out and about although can be very full on and he does need further recall training. He could possibly live with another dog but it would have to be a dog that could cope with his energy as he wants to play constantly.


We have put twelve yrs plus to live with children.


Koda does not like being left so we would like a home where his owner would be home with him most of the time.


If you think you could give Koda his forever home please give us a call.
