Grommet lurcher boy around 3 years old

Beautiful gentle Grommet came to us recently from the stray pound. Grommet is quite a shy nervous lad at the moment so would benefit from a quieter home...

Image

Grommet is brilliant with the other dogs at the kennels but does not involve himself with them much and is lovely with both adults and children but is not cat friendly. You can see that Grommet has had a working background and out on walks at the moment he is very much up on his toes, out at the front and spotting and seems keener than he possibly is as he is combining his watchfullness with his slightly nervy persona. You can see that this boy was very confused when he first landed but is settling beautifully now.

Grommet would be best suited to a home with a female companion dog already established into the home to allow him someone to bond with and help build his confidence. If he were to be rehomed as an only dog he would need someone with him most of the time to begin with and would need not to be offered to much fuss and reassurance as this would make him more confused.

Grommet really is a beautiful lad. Everyone at the kennels is very taken with him. With a little time and patience and love and being allowed to settle down he will be a very rewarding dog to have in your life.

Grommet is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, neutered and microhipped. Grommet is currently with us here in Stoke on Trent but can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevist and the family committing to travelling to meet him with any dogs they already have.

If you are interested in offering Grommet a home please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire below..

Milo 2 year old lurcher boy

This little lad arrived with us from the pound a week or so ago. He is a tiny whirrier boy who is currently quite bemused and seems to be a lovely gentle little lad. Even when he comes out of himself I do not envisage him to be a *massive character* as some small whirriers can be....

Image

Milo really does not like being in kennels and we would hasten a guess that he has been in a home environment before. He walks beautifully on the lead and is great with all the other dogs at the kennels but does not currently over engage with them. We do feel he would benefit from a slightly older female companion in the home environment to help show him the ways of the world and to build his courage. He could possibly live as an only dog in a home environment where someone was around all of the time to help him settle and continue building up his confidence. We also feel that training classes for socialisation and confidence building would be valuable to this lad. Milo is very clean in his kennel but we do feel he may have a few accidents to begin with in a home environment whilst settling and becoming familiar and settled with his surroundings.

Although Milo has been good with the younger children at the kennels we do feel young children would be too much for him to deal with at the moment and he would not like a noisy environment so would be best suited to a home with dog savy children 10 plus who can appreciate to leave him to be whilst he gains in confidence. Milo is not a dog who needs overly fussing, he needs leaving to work things out for himself quietly without being forced to engage in numerous activities in a busy environment.

Milo will be cat tested this weekend (hopefully) now the wayward kennels cat seems to have re appeared after two weeks awol!

Milo is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and neutered.

Milo is currently in kennels with us here in Stoke on Trent and can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit and any family members and existing dogs being willing to visit with him

If you are interested in offering Milo a home please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire below

Nonnie 18mnth old lurcher girl

We all love Nonnie! She is so sweet and has definately had a hard time of it up until landing in our care. After just a few weeks though the timid shy little girl is beginning to flourish thanks to the love and care from her foster parents and their other dogs.....

Image

Although Nonnie has probably not had the best of lives she is desperate to trust. She is definately a dog dog and learning more and more each day to be a people dog and enjoy fuss and cuddles. She is only young around 18mnths so has plenty of time to keep growing in character and learning.

Nonnie definately needs a home with other dogs for companionship. She adores cuddling up to the other dogs and is starting to play more each day. Even though she is in foster with two very bossy females Nonnie copes well with this and gets on well with them and they like her. She is also in foster with a young male lurcher who she gets on well with and a older spacially aware male lurcher who's boundaries she respects. All in all she is just a polite mindful girl around the other dogs.

Nonnie is housetrained and travels well in the car, she also walks beautifully out and about on lead and is an all round good girl. In fact Nonnies only bad habits are usual pilfering lurcher traits and if she thinks she can get away with it she will counter surf in her hunt for food.

Nonnie is good with children but we do feel as she is such a gentle quiet girl that a busy household with to much noise may be more than she would be comfortable with to begin with so would be best suited to a home with dog savy children 6+.

There is not much more to say about the lovely Nonnie other than with a little time and love she will flourish into a little angel which she is already proving she is!

Nonnie is vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and spayed.

Nonnie is currently in foster in the York area. She can be rehomed throughout the UK subject to a successful homevisit and any interested families plus resident dogs being willing to travel to meet her.

In the first instance if you are interested in adopting Nonnie please complete the pre adoption questionnaire below...

Winter is a very cheeky 9 month old saluki x whippet boy who landed with us recently from the pound when his time is up. He is only currently small just above whippet size and will not grow much more.

Image

Winter is currently in foster with 3 other dogs, 2 male lurchers and a female terrier and cats and gets on well with them all. He is good with his housetraining, fabulous out on walks and is okay to be left for short periods of time. However, he is currently going through a very strong puppy chewing it if it is not nailed down phase so his current foster carer is working on crate training him! This we strongly advise to begin with with any new owner until this phase passes.

Winter is a sociable little lad and would thrive on training classes both for socialisation benefits and also for training. He loves being busy so would even suit a home looking to do agility in the future with him, anything you want to try with him he would love.

Winter needs a home with other dogs and as he is so good with cats priority will be given to homes with cats already in residence. He will also need a home with someone around all or most of the time to enjoy long walks and training sessions with him throughout the day. He walks beautifully out and about on lead and paces himself gently with the other dogs he is walking with.

With a little bit of time and training he is going to be an absolutely A1 delightful little dog.

Winter is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and castrated.

Winter is currently in foster care in Wolverhampton and can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit and all members of the family and any current dogs being willing to travel to meet him in his foster home.

If you would like more information or to be considered to adopt Winter please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire below....

Lucious Barley 18mnth old saluki boy

Our wonderful Barley who is quite simply STUNWAR! Barley landed with us from a pound in South Wales when his time was up....

Image

Barley is currently in foster in Stoke on Trent with 3 other lurchers, 2 female and 1 male and gets on well with them all. However, it is plain to see if allowed that Barley could quite easily form seperation issues so his wonderful experienced foster carers are being rather firm with him! The first few days that Barley was there he would pitch the beautiful saluki howl when left during the day and the same at night. Due to this they opted to crate train him to contain him and allow him plenty of time out. He is fine and quiet when left crated now during the day but can still be a little vocal at night but this is improving all the time! It will be IMPERATIVE for any home adopting Barley to understand this and be willing to work with this for the first few weeks and accept it could happen again during the settling in period which we will work through with you. We highly recommend anyone wishing to adopt Barley understands to begin with he both needs and feels secure with the use of a crate!

Barley definately needs a home with other dogs. He thrives with their company and we feel without other dog company he would develop permanant seperation anxiety issues. He likes to play and to cuddle. Out on walks Barley is good and good with all other dogs he meets. He is also good with the visiting Grandchildren in the home but we feel due to him being such a large boy he would be best homed with dog savy children 5 upwards. Barley is NOT cat friendly. We also feel Barley would be best in an environment with someone around alot of the time to begin with to help him become secure with being left. Barley travels well settling down to sleep.

Barley is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and castrated
Although Barley is in foster in Stoke on Trent he can be rehomed Nationally subject to a successful homevisit and family members along with any existing dogs being willing to travel to meet him.

If you are interested in offering Barley a home please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire below....

Rafferty and Ryker stunning lurcher duo. Lovely lovely boys

These two landed together after being owner surrendered into the pound! We know we risk holding up finding them the home attempting to home them together but the bond these boys have is beautiful and needs to be seen! They are both stunning boys. Rafferty the rough coat is the youngest at around 18mnths to 2 years but also the most sensible of the two currently and Ryker...... well Ryker is just something else and literally a dog in a million! So happy and cheeky aged around 5 and its Rafferty who rolls HIS eyes at Ryker's silly loving playful nature! If someone is looking for a ready made pair and willing to put the settling in work into them then look no further!

Image

When Ryker and Rafferty landed with us from the pound they were very poorly and we thought it was the dreaded parvo virus! Thankfully it was just a stomach bug but they had a BLAST at the vets especially Ryker! When we landed to pick them up they were happily following our vet nurse Kate around the place like *Mum* and were very welcoming of us and proud to show of what they thought was there new home to us biggrin.gif Think they were a bit crestfallen to leave and find themselves back in kennels.

Both the boys seem to have a wonderfully friendly nature. They have been excellent with all the people at the kennels, including children and fabulous with all the other dogs! They have not yet been cat tested but if the cat stays in situ at the kennels we will attempt that this weekend.

Both boys stand around 24 inches to the shoulder so are not big dogs. They walk beautifully on their leads and keep their kennel relatively clean. They may need a little work on housetraining when first arriving. They also travel beautifully.

Rafferty and Ryker would possibly suit best as a bonded pair into a home with no other current dogs although we feel they will be fine with a female already in the home as long as she will not be over faced with having two new playmates land at the sametime.

Both boys have been given a clean bill of health but Ryker has a silly little empty skin goitre in his neck. It is completely empty and nothing to worry about but we will get it rechecked again before they leave.UPDATE RYKERS GOITRE IN HIS NECK HAS NOW COMPLETELY GONE DOWN WE THINK IT WAS AS A RESULT OF HIS INTUBATION WHEN CASTRATED

Rafferty and Ryker are both vaccinated, kc vaccianted, de flead, de wormed, neutered and will shortly be microchipped before leaving for a new home.

They are currently with us in kennels in Stoke on Trent but can be rehomed nationally subject to a suitable homevisit being carried out and any new family being willing to visit them and meet them.

In the first instance please complete the pre adoption questionnaire below

Fancy a challenge? Magnum 12mnth old Spanish dog

Mad Magnum or Manuelle as we like to call him landed into our care after being rehomed locally to me by a Spanish Rescue. When Magnum turned out to be everything the family were told he was'nt they could no longer cope with him and the Spanish Rescue admitted they had no back up and could not help! Obviously as I was a very bad person in my last life it was us the family contacted ???

Image

Magnum is a handful and quite wilful and there is no way to hide it, nor would we want to! Any home commiting to Magnum needs to understand there is work to be done! LOT'S! We highly suspect he is a cross between a Podenco Andulaz and a Spanish Mastin! He is a large, happy, clown who at the moment is having so much fun its hard to calm him down and to get him to concentrate on anything other than messing around!

Magnum is very keen and has a high prey drive. Out on walks he is constantly spotting and refuses to listen to commands although he knows them, this constant spotting is not helped by the fact he is the most naturally nosey and curious dog I have EVER MET in my life! He pulls like a train on walks so is walked on a harness and a head collar would also be beneficial, if you can stop him dancing around long enough to get the headcollar on! He most definately needs someone willing to put him through training classes and work with his obedience and also his general socialisation.

That said Magnum will dance on the spot for food and does know sit and give paw! He has been fabulous with ALL the dogs at the kennels and the children but is definately NOT cat friendly! Magnum needs a home with someone dog exprienced, up for a project and preferably with an older female who will play with him BUT also keep him in line when she has had enough. Someone with a little land to allow him to run off his excess stupidity energy would be ideal and preferably somewhere with someone home all or most of the day! We do know that Magnums housetraining is quite good, however, toys and long lasting treats need to be kept out of the equation to begin with aswell as the home we took him from reported some issues of resource guarding although to be fair with his toys and pigs ears in the kennels we have not witnessed this.

All in all with time and effort Magnum will be a highly rewarding boy once a few months of hard work has been placed into him. Any home needs to understand though they are taking on a BIG stubborn, puppy who if allowed to take an inch will take the proverbial mile! Don't all rush at once biggrin.gif winks.gif

Magnum will not be rehomed into a home with children under 16 and with young children visiting! Especially not ones who wear teddy bear onesies as apparently he also nearly got himself into trouble with a child in his last home dressed as a fluffy bear! Not malice but again over excitement and the fact that although he is incredibly bright he does a good impression of being as thick as mud. I also think I am WAY to honest for my own good biggrin.gif I do feel the need to point out though when he was walked by someone 5ft 10 at the kennels dressed as a dinasour he was fine (please do not ask) All that said we do love him and so it seems do the other dogs and there is never a dull moment with this boy around.

Magnum is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, pet passported, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and neutered.

Magnum is currently in Stoke on Trent reducing my poor long suffering kennel walkers to fits of inappropriate laughter at any given moment and can be rehomed nationally. It will be imperative for anyone wishing to offer Magnum a home to visit with other members of the family and any other resident dogs.

If you have a good sense of humour, the patience of a Saint and want to be thorougly rewarded in heaven then please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire below...

Buster lovely, funny 8 year old EBT boy

Buster makes me laugh! Possibly the most hardcore EBT we have had to date in the most ridiculously hilarious way......

Image

Buster landed with us from the pound in the most sad state. He was sore, very under weight and just a total mess. When he first landed he was actually a calming influence on Carrie one of our most hard to handle current kennel residents and she settled and walked beautifully with him.

Out and about on the kennel walks Buster walks impeccably with the other dogs. That is until one of them barks then he seems to have the most endearing Rambo switch that flicks and suddenly gets a bit antsy and has to be watched. Sadly for Buster what he does not realise which we do is he has the most lame squeeky bark ever and the other dogs just look at him as if to say *YES RIGHT!*. Due to this behaviour we feel Buster will be best rehomed as an only dog and with someone who has had experience of EBT's and their behaviour in the past. Buster would love a home with someone around all or most of the time and someone who will take him out and about on plenty of fun walks. Buster does need some work still on lead manners and is very typically bully in the way that the head and shoulders go down and off he goes. He is not overly pully though and tends to settle once he reaches the end of the lead. Buster needs to be rehomed with dog sensible children 10 plus. He has never shown an ounce of malice where humans are concerned but is definately a bit over animated when giving you bully kisses and prone to nibbling your lip. He is also the most waggy bull terrier I have ever met!

Wherever Buster has been up until now we do not feel he has had the best life. He deserves someone who knows not to let his stubborn side rule them but also that this middle aged boy now truly deserves a family who will dote on him and love him to within an inch of his life. He is special.

Buster is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and neutered and currently in kennels in Stoke on Trent.

Buster can be rehomed nationally subject to a suitable homevisit being carried out and any family members willing to travel to meet him!

If you are intereted in offering Buster a home please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire below

Ty 2 year old lurcher boy - CAT FRIENDLY

Ty came into us earlier this year with his siblings carrying parvo virus, seriously emaciated and full of demodectic mange. Sadly although we hospitilised them immediately Ty was the only pup to survive. :'(

Image

Since then Ty has been recovering in foster as he had a very long journey to face and is now thankfully a fighting fit wonderful strong little pup.

Ty is currently on foster in Stafford and is living with other dogs and cats and in the main gets on with them well. He is a typical pup though and can be a little pig headed and stubborn at times and loves to play whether the other dogs do or not!

Out and about Ty is fabulous off lead, has wonderful recall and is good with other dogs. He is also good with children but is spooked by young noisy ones and does get frightened being a big strong pup would be better in a home with older children teenage upwards. He is also a little wary of other noises and loud bangs.

Ideally Ty needs someone who is home all or most of the time to continue with his basic training and would benefit from training classes. Another strong willed female lurcher would be a fabulous companion for Ty and who will keep him in his play but enjoy running and playing with him.

Ty travels well and is fine to be left with the other dogs for periods of time without being destructive. He does however if bored and not watched like to help landscape the garden when out there un supervised but what young lurcher doesnt.

Ty would LOVE an active home with people who like to get out and do plenty of walking and who will take him with him whilst they get out and about. He loves to be doing and busy and spending time with his people.

Ty is vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and castrated.

If you are interested in offering Ty a home in the first instance please complete the pre adoption questionnaire below...

Artie stunning 5 year old Greyhound boy

This is the beautiful Artie who recently came to us from the stray pound and I think he is possibly one of the most handsome hounds I have ever seen he is so beautifully put together

Image

Artie is a lovely boy but is NOT cat friendly and does need socialisation with other breeds of dogs as can be more than common with greyhounds. Artie would probably benefit from any new family being willing to take him to socialisation classes once he had settled in.

Out and about Artie walks beautifully on lead but we do feel that he might be a bit of a leaper if he sees other dogs running off lead under he gets a little more worldly wise.

Artie gets on well with the other greyhounds and lurchers at the kennels and we feel would be ok to be an only dog or with other hounds for company. Although Artie is in kennels he works hard to keep his area clean and also travels well.

Artie is vaccinated, kc vacacinted, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and will shortly be neutered.

For more information or to offer Artie a home please complete the pre adoption questionnaire below. Artie can be rehomed UK with subject to a successful homevist and any new family being willing to travel to meet him.

Sammy stunning 7 year old greyhound boy

Image

Sammy recently came back to us after his family had a new baby and they were worried that his prey drive seemed to high. However, Sammy really wants a quiet life in a quiet home and although now in foster he is spending time around young children to begin with he was very nervous of them. He is learning now they can be fun and interacting with them more but he does much prefer the quiet life and is a typical cheeky but lazy greyhound boy.. Therefore we feel Sammy would be best suited to a quieter home with children teenage plus...

In the house Sammy is spotlessly clean and loves to relax and sleep. He is fine to be left and does like the company of other greyhounds but we feel he will happily settle as an only dog in a home environment with someone around most of the time.

This lovely smiley boy does have his cheeky side and will play with toys both in the house and outside in the garden.

Out on walks Sammy is walked on lead and muzzled. Although in the main he walks beautifully by your side he does need watching around very small fast moving dogs and is NOT cat friendly.

Deb who is fostering Sammy alongside her 10 year old greyhound and younger lurcher girl loves him and as a first time foster has found him a really happy easy going dog to have around. She has had no problems or upset with him at all.

Someone will be really lucky to have this wonderful wonderful hound and hope he is snapped up and quickly


Sammy is vaccinated neutered and microchipped

He is currently on foster in the Cheshire area.

If you are interested in offering Sammy a home please complete the pre adoption questionnaire below

Serena 3 year old lurcher girl

This is the stunning Serena who is currently with us in kennels in Stoke on Trent

Image

There is not much to say about this wonderful girl. Serena is lovely, walks well on lead and is great out and about with other dogs in the main but is muzzled and has to be watched around smaller dogs. When settling into a new home as Serena is quite sensitive she may have the odd accident to begin with.

We feel that Serena would be best suited to live either as an only dog in a home or with a calmer older male who wont push her around or challenge her. Serena is good with children and older dog savy children of 8 plus would be fine. Serena also travels well and settles easily in the car.

Serena does have good recall when off lead but as with alot of lurchers she can play a little rough and does need more socialisation with smaller dogs so would be best only let off in enclosed areas where she can have a run alone.

Serena is NOT cat friendly.

This girl is so loving and really bonds with people and any family looking to have a singular dog or with an older calmer male as stated would have a really loyal, loving, lovely hound and be lucky to welcome her into their lives.

Serena is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and spayed.

If you are interested in Serena please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire below

Dobbie 2 year old whippet boy

Dobbie landed in our care around a month ago from a stray pound in Hull. At the time he was very red and sore and looked to be mangey but in fact thankfully it turned out to be a flea allergy and once treated he healed quickly and started to look fabulous. Now he is in tip top physically shape and ready to go!

Image

Dobbie is a typical little young whippet boy, energetic, nosey, michievious and bouncy. He adores cuddles and way to much attention and we feel would be best suited to a whippet experienced home with other whippets he can bond with, get up to mischief with and then cuddle up to. He would not manage as an only dog unless someone was willing to give their whole life up to be his doting slave!

Dobbie has been introduced to the kennels cats and showed no malice BUT the kennel cat does stand her ground! She would NEVER lower herself to run from a dog. I do feel if a cat were to run Dobbie would not be able to help but give chase. With a big black puffed up hissing fur bag though he politely sniffed her bum then really annoyed her by attempting to bat her on the head with his paw. We feel unless someone had VERY rufty tufty cats and massive experience and confidence at introductions he would be best placed into a home without cats.

Out and about walking Dobbie is busy! He needs a little work on his lead manners as he wants to be everywhere sniffing everything and will try to see how much he can get away with! He has in the main been good with the other dogs in the kennels but needs someone willing to teach him better manners at introducing himself as bouncing on two legs yelling Oi Oi Oi does not go down well causing the other dogs to be a little off hand with him. He is also a little vocal on walks if dogs approach from the opposite direction and again will start to have a shout. On some occassions a firm NO, or LEAVE it is enough but on other occassions he carries on. We feel Dobbie will definetely benefit from socialisation and training classes to improve his manners and skills around other dogs.

Although Dobbie is with us in kennels he is a clean boy so we feel house training will be no problem at all as long as someone is on top of him to begin with. He also travels well and settles to sleep. Due to Dobbies bouncey nature we feel he will be best placed into a home with dog savy children 6 plus.

Dobbie is currently in the kennels in Stoke on Trent and can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit being undertaken and family members and any resident dogs being willing to travel to meet him

Dobbie is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and has been castrated.

In the first instance if you are interested in offering Dobbie a home please complete the pre adoption questionnaire below

Bentley 2 year old Staffie boy

Bentley is ace! He has been with us now in kennels since just 6 months old after being taken from a very bad *home situation* where a little damage to his temprement had already been done. We have worked through this in the main now and most of it was just about him maturing and mature he has into the most wonderful, comical, cheeky little man...

Image

Bentley is very settled with us at the kennels, he flourishes on routine and that is what he gets, that said though as much as we love him its now time to try and find him a home of his own. Out and about on a daily level Bentley is very good and sociable with all other dogs, he has quite good manners apart from if he is standing still with a dog to long he thinks the best way to say hello is to attempt to hump their leg be it male or female. Non of the dogs seem to take offence to it though which is ridiculous! He never attempts to cause any upsets or arguements at the kennels but occassionally other dogs have a go at him and he either tells them off back or looks completely crest fallen and upset. Bentley is also good off lead, listens, recalls well and has so far been good with other dogs playing nicely.

Bentley needs a home with Staffie experienced people and someone around most of the time to allow him to settle in. He would also prefer a home without other dogs and NO CHILDREN under 13! When Bentley first landed with us sadly he had been starved and in a position where he had to fight for his food. At 6 months we did place Bentley into a foster home for a short time for assessment and we found that he was defensive of his food bowl and you had to wait for him to finish and move away from it before attempting to remove it. If you tried to take it away he would try to bite at your feet. He also needed keeping off laps as if he did not want to move he would dig his heels in and get snappy! Of course now he is castrated and matured all this may have gotten better and we have NEVER seen any hint of this at the kennels. In fact in the kennels you can put your hand into his bowl and mess with his food whilst he is eating alongside you, not something we would recommend at home because why would you but something we have done for assessment purposes only! Likewise cuddles and climbing on the knee in the kennels causes no problems. However, as Bentley was starved and abused in a home environment the triggers could be different so something we are acknowledging and making people aware of to be safe!

Bentley walks well on the lead, travels well and is housetrained. We feel he would benefit from training and socialisation classes to allow him to continue to flourish.

Bentley is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed and castrated and really is a wonderful happy shiney little man!

Bentley is currently with us in kennels in Stoke on Trent and can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit being carried out and family members being willing to travel to meet him

3 x 9 week old puppies

These beautiful, beautiful babies are now ready for rehoming here with GG and currently in our kennels in Stoke on Trent. There is also 2 brindle puppies from the same litter but they were a little more timid so are in foster in Wigan and will soon have their own rehoming thread....

Image

These puppies are exceptionally lucky and have had a fabulous start from day one. Their Mother was picked up as a stray and taken into our local stray pound where she was rehomed directly to a lovely family. Sadly it was very quickly found that she was pregnant and although the family adored her their working hours meant they were not equipped to deal with her and the babies. The pound owner stepped in, bought Mum back and whelped her himself, allowed her to rear the puppies until the right time at 8 weeks old and then Mum was returned her to loving home and the puppies moved into our care. They are unspoilt. Having had a good start and being kept with Mum till the right age they are healthy, fit, strong, independant little babies who know no fear.

The ones available on this rehoming thread are as follows

1 male = Good strong big pup who is already quite a tall dominant proud dog. He will be best placed as an only dog or with a confident bitch or pack of dogs who will allow him to continue to grow but also teach him that at just 9 weeks old he is not totally indestructable

1 female = sweet and commical with a widows peak already growing in in her markings and a under shot jaw. The jaw will only add to her character and certainly not affect her in anyway. She is a little explorer and her confidence already is massive, she is happy to nosey around and get up to mischief on her own and unlike her litter mates was happy to spread her wings a little further in the paddock yesterday. This little girl will fit in anywhere, happily with other dogs or also as an only dog.

1 female = The smallest girl ie the runt of the litter and for me the pick. Happy go lucky, shiney and loving this little lady oozes a quiet confidence but is also extremely loyal and loving and is the first one to rush back to you with a big smile on her face for a cuddle. Again she would be fine as an only dog or with a companion dog or in a pack environment

As with all puppies we will only rehome them to a home environment with someone around all of the time. They are just 9 weeks old and will need help with all the good basics ie housetraining, socialisation and everything that goes with bringing on a good stable well versed dog. As I said they are unspoilt and we would like to keep them this way! We would highly recommend puppy training classes and also basic obedience classes and the purchase from Amazon of The Perfect Puppy by Gwen Bailey a real puppy owners bible that I read repeatedly.

The puppies will be safe to be rehomed into an environment with cats and younger children. It does need noting though that puppies are fast moving, have sharp teeth and at times will use them on younger children so any home has to be sensible and aware of this fact.

The puppies have all been health checked and given a clean bill of health. They do currently have a slight heart murmour that my vet feels is absolutely nothing to worry about and puppies can have it at this age and usually it disappears. They are all 1st vaccinated, de flead, de wormed and microchipped and their 2nd jab is due next Monday after that they will be ready to leave! As with all of our charges that leave us before neutering age you will be asked to sign and enter into a contract stating you agree to the neutering of the pups between the ages of 6-8 months! Failure to do this will lead to re claim.

The puppies can be rehomed nationwide but any new family will have to be willing to travel to Stoke on Trent with any current dogs to meet with their chosen pup.

In the first instance if you are interested in adopting one of our babies please complete the pre adoption questionnaire below
