Hope Rescue is not a rescue in the conventional sense. We are primarily a co-ordinating rescue. Most of our work involves moving dogs from put to sleep or emergency situations. We secure rescue spaces for these dogs with reputable rescues and we will also transport them to the rescue.

The majority of the dogs we deal with are strays from Local Authority pounds which would otherwise be euthanised once they have completed their statutory 7 days.

We also take in dogs for rehoming ourselves via a network of fantastic and dedicated foster homes which enable us to fully assess the dogs in our care prior to rehoming. Details of our current dogs for rehoming can be found below or please visit our website Hope Rescue Website.

Rehoming procedure

All of our dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

We ask for a minimum donation as follows:

£160 , all dogs if old enough are neutered , if not old enough neutering is the new families responsibility.

We have a thorough rehoming process at Hope Rescue:

Completion of our initial Interest Form
Informal telephone chat
Home Check
Meet the Dog
Guardianship Agreement
Follow-up visit (if necessary)

We also have some basic rehoming criteria. Occasionally we can be flexible and this will be detailed on the individual dogs rehoming information:

We do not rehome to homes with children under 5 years unless specified on the individual dogs rehoming information

We do not rehome to homes with existing dogs that are not neutered (unless for medical or exceptional circumstances)

We will rehome certain dogs to full-time workers where specified in the rehoming information, however you must make arrangements for someone to visit during the day e.g. a dog sitter

Prior to rehoming you will be required to visit the dog either in our kennels or foster home together with any other dogs in your family

If you are interested in one of our dogs then you can down load the paperwork from the website Rehoming Paperwork or please ring 07834 525753 (no calls after 9 p.m. please) or email her at dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Archie is a 1 year old Collie and is currently on foster in Aberystwyth, West Wales.

The Archie Fact File

Dog status: Very good
Cat status: Very good
Child status: Looking for older children or adult only home
House training: Very good
Home alone: Has been left for short periods and been fine, this would need to build gradually. Not suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Walks nicely on the lead, comes when called and knows sit. Just learning to play and is ball motivated for further training. He will need work on his confidence and behaviour outside the home.

Image

Archie is a stunning young lad with a sparkling personality to match his good looks. Archie was undersocialised as a youngster and is quite nervous in busy environments which means he can spin and snap. He's much happier in a wide, open space than he is near traffic so if you like long treks in the country and want a companion then Archie may be the guy for you. All things considered, he's an affectionate boy who has the potential to develop into an amazing dog but may never be able to cope with a busy lifestyle.

Image

Archie is in foster with another young dog and has gained confidence having canine company and would benefit from either sharing his new home with another confident dog or he could be rehomed as a single dog. He has been fine with dogs he has met out and about. Archie is in foster with cats and can chase if they run but it’s not in malice. He would do best with confident cats.

Image

Archie can be nervous of new people but has improved greatly and once he knows you inside the house he is affectionate and confident. He is in foster with an older child who is very dog savvy and could be rehomed with similar aged and mannered children. Care would need to be taken though if there we visiting children regularly.

Image

Archie has had some basic training has good recall and his lead walking is improving. He did not know how to play when he arrived and did not show a lot of interest in toys however his foster home have worked hard in motivating him with food and with toys and he is getting the hang of the concept of a ball and loving it. This will be useful for future adopters to continue his training using positive methods and reward.

Image

Archie has only been left for short periods by his foster home and coped fine with canine company. We would not rehome him with full time workers who were out of the home for most of the day but he may be suitable for someone who works part time or is home for the best part of the day. He travels well in the car and shows no possessive behaviour.

Image

Archie struggles with the hustle and bustle of busy life outside the home and while improving this is an area where there is a lot work left to do. He enjoys his walks and being outside in quieter rural areas and slow introductions to new areas with positive training will help him progress further. Archie will spin when he is stressed and will snap when frightened and is muzzled when out in busier areas.
In summary Archie is looking for a kind patient home who can continue to introduce him to new things giving him time to realise that the world isn’t scary. In an ideal world he would love to love out his life on a large country estate!

Image

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. We have a suggested minimum donation of £160. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Cherry is a 2 year old staffie cross and is currently in emergency boarding near Porth.

The Cherry Fact File

Dog status: Would prefer to be only dog but may be able to rehomed with larger male.
Cat status: Absolutely no cats please!
Child status: Older children or adult home.
House training: Perfect
Home alone: Can be left for short periods, not suitable for full time worker
Basic training: Excellent – Gold Kennel Club!

Image

Please crosspost and share Cherry as while she initially reads as a difficult dog she has so so much to offer and has come so far in so many ways. She does need a special home and while it will be difficult to find in that home Cherry will be amazing and a joy.

Image

Cherry has returned back into our care and is looking for a new foster or forever home. Cherry spent a lot of her younger life in kennels but once moved to foster settled very quickly and easily into her foster home. She was fostered without other pets in a quiet home with just one adult. She met children and other dogs when out and about and was fine with male dogs and showed no sign of anxiousness with children. She was rehomed almost a year ago to a family home who worked very hard with Cherry but it was in her best interests to return to our care to find a new home. Cherry has the benefit of being one of our most assessed dogs ever!

Image

Cherry would either be best as an only pet or may accept a larger male dog as a canine companion. She has bonded with dogs while in kennels but always towards the big lads with a steady temperament. If we did consider a home with a resident dog there would need to be several meetings and it would need to be an experienced home. We would not rehome her into a multi-dog household or a home with female dogs. Cherry’s behaviour seems to be due to lack of socialisation when younger and will manifest itself as fear aggression towards the other dog or over exuberant rough play which she doesn’t know how to control. She has had behaviourist led positive interactions with other dogs in one to one and groups situations which can be managed but it is clear that Cherry struggles with other dogs in her comfort zone.

Image

Cherry cannot be rehomed with cats or small furries.

Image

Cherry has been fine with people and is good with children but is looking for an adult home preferably or one with older children is a possibility. She has poor self-control when meeting people or when you return and will jump and nip in excitement. Once settled Cherry is loving and affectionate and very people orientated. She has really enjoyed spending time with people in the annexe at the kennels and quickly shows what an amazing dog she is and how much pleasure she has to give. In the right home Cherry will be an amazing addition … even in the wrong environment she has a way of winning people’s hearts.

Image

Cherry worked her way through Bronze, Silver and Gold Kennel Club Awards while in her previous home and learnt: Sit, Down, Stand, Wait, Stay, Recall, Watch me, Walk to heel, wait to go through doorways after the human, wait and sit at the side of the road, wait to enter a car on command, leave food, leave a treat in front of her till told to “take it”, leave/give up a toy during play (tug), come away from distractions, and tricks: Spin, rollover, creepies etc. Her training was all positive training based and used treat or toy rewards and clicker training and she responds well to both. She is a pleasure and a joy to work with.

Image

Cherry is house trained and able to be left for short periods without issues though wouldn’t cope with full time workers. She has not been crate trained as found this distressing but is able to be left in loose without issue. She is not destructive in the home and will always chew on her own toys or a bone if she is bored. She travels well in the car and is fine at the vets. Cherry found living in a busy family home environment difficult and over stimulating especially with children coming and going and a busy road outside. When in foster in a quiet house she was much calmer and able to relax. Ideally we would like a rural home for Cherry where she is able to lower her adrenaline levels enough to allow her to learn some self-control.

Bodie is a 3 year old Rottweiller x Dogue de Bordeaux and came into our care via his previous owners. He is currently in emergency boarding kennels near Cardiff.

The Bodie Fact File

Dog status: Previous lived with a female Rottweiler
Cat status: No cats please!
Child status: Adult home or older children
Home alone: Unknown but kennel clean
Basic training: Good basic training.

Image

Bodie has struggled with the move from a home environment living with another dog to kennels and is looking for a quieter experienced home where he has the time and patience to be allowed to come round in his own time.

Image

Bodie previously lived with an older calm female Rottweiler and he could be fostered with another dog. The dogs would need to meet at the kennels initially. He has been fine with all the dogs he has met whilst being in kennels choosing to back away if another dog barks in his direction.

Image

Bodie is a nervous lad and does seem more comfortable with women than with men. We would be looking for an adult home but may consider one with older dog savvy children that understand he needs time and space and may feel threatened initially. Whilst in a busy, loud kennel environment Bodie has snapped at a gentleman that he had only just met who leaned over him. He has recently moved kennels and is far more confident in his interactions now. Actually once Bodie knows you you will be constantly asked whether you want cuddles or kisses!

Image

Bodie has good basic manners and walks nicely on the lead. With people he knows he is a real cuddle monster and whenever you stop for a break will demand cuddles. He travels well in the car and while nervous at the vets prefers to stand back rather than be the focus of attention. Bodie is both treat and toy motivated which makes calm positive based training much easier. He only moved kennels a few weeks ago and is a different dog already. In the right foster home this boy has the potential to be amazing!

Image

Bodie is neutered, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated. He will be microchipped when moved to foster.

In summary, Bodie is looking for an experienced, quiet foster home where he is given time and space to find his feet without feeling threatened. He could share with another dog.

Image

If you can offer Bodie a foster sofa while she waits for his forever home please contact one of the foster team - Nicky (da1sy1), Julie (paddywack), Trudie (trudes) or Leigh (Leighze) if already registered or email Kate on fosters@hoperescue.org.uk to become a new foster home.

Cleo is a 3 year old Staffie cross and is currently in emergency boarding kennels near Porth.

The Cleo Fact File

Dog status: Looking for an only pet foster home
Cat status: No cats please
Child status: Loves people and could be fostered with older children
Home alone: Unknown
Basic training: Good basic training and walks well on the lead. Responds well to clicker training.

Cleo is currently is emergency boarding in South Wales and is urgently looking for a foster placement.

Image

Hope were asked to help with Cleo as she was being kept in conditions where she was at real risk. Before Cleo came into Hope’s care she was kept in a tiny cage with other caged dogs close by and only let out briefly. She was in very poor condition when she arrived and while we were told she would not tolerate kennelling she has settled in well and her condition has much improved, both mentally and physically. She is now very much ready to find a foster home.

Image

Due to being kept in such close confines under such stressful conditions with other dogs in similar circumstances, she is not great with other dogs and will need continued socialisation with other dogs outside the home. This work has begun in kennels but it is limited how far this can go while in kennels. She has weekly sessions with our behaviourist and this support will continue in her foster home. Unfortunately we can only consider pet free foster homes for Cleo at present. Cleo would prefer not to share her home with cats!

Image

Cleo is very much a people dog and loves to have fusses, is very responsive and really good fun to be around. She spends time in the annex at the kennels providing an indication of how she would be in a home environment. Initially she would mug you for treats and then get on with the important task of exploring. Nowadays she is much more laid back and likes nothing more than a tummy rub and cuddle and using the time out to relax. We would consider foster placements with older children as long as they are dog experienced.

Image

Since coming into Hope’s care she has been having weekly sessions with a behaviourist and is doing brilliantly. She walks nicely on a lead and doesn’t pull when she reaches the end. She can be a little hesitant of new noises and places but will sit patiently when asked. She is now much calmer around the other dogs and while we do not allow close meetings between the kennel dogs she will walk well in the group and pass other dogs on the path politely. She is food motivated and responds well to clicker training. She sits well and will offer a paw (whether asked or not). She has always been clean in the annex and is not dirty in her kennel. She travels well to and from the vet.

Image

Cleo is neutered, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated. She will be microchipped when moved to foster.

In summary, Cleo has come on leaps and bounds in the last few months and is now definitely ready for a foster home. She really is a lovely girl who needs to forget her past and move onto a brighter future. If you think you can offer a space to Cleo but want to know a bit more about her first you are welcome to talk to the behaviourist who has been working with her.

Image

If you can offer Cleo a foster sofa while she waits for his forever home please contact one of the foster team - Nicky (da1sy1), Julie (paddywack) Trudie (trudes) or Leigh (Leighze) if already registered or email Kate on fosters@hoperescue.org.uk to become a new foster home.

Lady Mary is a 3 year old English Bull Terrier and came into our care from the local authority Pound. She is currently in foster in Leominster, Herefordshire.

The Lady Mary Fact File
Dog status: Very good
Cat status: Unknown
Child status: Very good; could be rehomed with children 5 and above.
House training: Excellent.
Home alone: Very good but is an active girl. May be suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Very good basics including recall.

Lady Mary was heavily pregnant when she arrived at the pound and was moved to foster to settle before giving birth to what would be 7 boys and 1 girl by C-Section. She and her pups are now looking for new homes with the view of moving mid January. Lady Mary was spayed when operated on.

Image

Lady Mary showed from the first moment we met her that she had a wonderful temperament and she has been a wonderful mum.
She has been great with the resident dogs in the foster home and the dogs she has met out and about. She can be rehomed with or without canine company in her new home. She initially showed some possessive behaviour around the resident dogs but she was a heavily pregnant dog meeting and sharing resources with dogs she had previously never met. This behaviour is no longer evident but a new owner with existing dogs would need to be aware of this and carefully manage feeding times and resources initially.

Lady Mary is not in foster with cats so her behaviour in the house is unknown but she does chase cats outside.

Lady Mary adores people and has shown nothing but affection for people even allowing strangers to come in and handle her puppies. She is happy being touched all over and has been excellent at the vets. She thrives on human company and has shown no possessive behaviour in regards to humans. Lady Mary could be rehomed with children over 5 years old.

Image

Lady Mary has good basic training and has good recall when out and about. She is a strong girl and can pull initially on the lead but when asked to wait she will. It would take a little extra work initially to brush up on the basics and she has the potential to continue learning. Lady Mary is a young, active dog and does need to learn to calm down a little in the house! She will need a new home where she get a minimum of one long walk a day and a secure garden as while she doesn’t jump particularly high she can climb fencing!

While Lady Mary is a real people dog and a social butterfly and is not looking for a new home where she will live on the side-lines, she is happy being left after an appropriate amount of exercise and will just settle quietly in her crate. She would be suitable for full time workers that have things in place to ensure she has the company and stimulation outside working hours. She is perfect in her house training, confident around the home and in new situations and adores travelling in the car.

In summary, Lady Mary is looking for an active home where she can be a real family member and get the attention and love she deserves. She can be rehomed with or without canine company.

Image

Lolly is a 5 month Lurcher and is currently on foster in Caerphilly.

The Lolly Fact File

Dog status: Excellent.
Cat status: Excellent but needs a confident cat
Child status: Older children please
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Not suitable to be left for full time hours.
Basic training: Good basics, needs some continued training in self-control.

Lolly is a non-stop bundle of fun! A blank canvas waiting for someone to take her forward and show her the world and shape her for the future. We would be looking for a dog experienced home for Lolly.

Image

Lolly is living in a foster home with another Lurcher and a Staffie cross. She has been excellent with both dogs and those she has met out and about. She is a young dog full of fun though so may be best with dogs that aren’t too old or frail. Lolly can also be rehomed as the only dog with lots of human company. She is still young and taking her to puppy class will be a requirement of her adoption.

Lolly is also in foster with a cat and while she wanted to chase it was in play. She is young and is able to be rehomed with dog savvy cats.

Image

Lolly has been great with the people she has met and has been around children from 12 and above. She does struggle with self-control though and will mouth and nip though this has improved greatly. In new situations and high excitement she does revert back. Lolly was a home surrender and came to Hope Rescue for nipping a child in her original home. Due to this we would prefer a home if they have children to have older children, probably 10 plus.

Lolly is still young but already walks well on the lead and has excellent recall. She will sit, stay leave and is beginning to admit she does understand the word no! She will need to attend training classes to keep on top of the training she has had in foster. She is bright and responsive and thrives on praise.

Image

Lolly is still young and adores on human attention and we feel at this stage she would not be suitable for a working household where there isn’t someone in for most of the day. Lolly travels well in the car and has shown no possessive but initially would snap if asked to do something she didn’t want to do. This has calmed down as she has matured and been given choices. She hasn’t jumped garden fences but we would err on the side of caution!

In summary, Lolly is a bright and responsive pup who needed some guidance to tone down the boisterous behaviour she initially showed. She is cat and dog friendly but is young and wants to interact. We are looking for an active interactive home for Lolly where if there are children they are a little older to take into account her mouthing and nipping.

Image

Puppies need to be neutered at their new owner’s expense. Neutering is a condition of adoption and something we follow up to ensure it has been completed.

We do not rehome puppies to full time workers

Puppies must also be taken to training classes and this will be followed up. If you do not know of training classes in your area please research this before you contact us about rehoming.


All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. We have a suggested minimum donation of £160. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded [a href="http://hope-rescue,..com/index.cgi?board=policy&action=display&thread=21146"][font color="Red"]HERE[/font][/a] and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Hope is a 4 month Lurcher and is currently on foster in Pontypool.

The Hope Fact File

Dog status: Very good.
Cat status: Could be rehomed with cats.
Child status: Can be rehomed with children.
House training: In progress
Home alone: Not suitable to be left for full time hours.
Basic training: Blank Canvas .

Hope came into our care from the pound but was diagnosed with Parvo soon after moving to foster and needed to move to isolation. She is now clear of any infection and able to be out and about. We would advise that any resident dogs in the home though are up to date with their vaccinations.

Image

Hope is not in foster with other dogs at the moment but was previously. She has been excellent those she has met out and about and we would have no worries about her being rehjomed with canine companions. She is a young dog full of fun though so may be best with dogs that aren’t too old or frail. Hope can also be rehomed as the only dog with lots of human company. She is still young and taking her to puppy class will be a requirement of her adoption.

Hope is not in foster with cats but is young and has shown no indication that she would not be able to be rehomed with dog savvy cats. She is in foster with small animals and has shown no interest.

Image

Hope has been great with the people she has met and has been around children 5 and above. She will nibble a little but hasn’t shown any concerning puppy mouthing or nipping. She could be rehomed with children or into an adult only home.

Hope is still young and is just starting out on her training. She will need some further work in all areas but gentle positive training will mean she will learn quickly and will build her confidence. She will need to attend training classes to keep on top of the training she has had in foster. She is bright and responsive and thrives on praise.

Image

Hope is still young and adores on human attention and we feel at this stage she would not be suitable for a working household where there isn’t someone in for most of the day. Hope travels well in the car and has shown no possessive or aggressive behaviour. The garden would need to be secure and initially she will need to be shown which toys are hers and which things are precious to you. She likes to chase mops!

In summary, Hope is a bright and responsive puppy who is now ready to find her own home. She is blank canvas and will become what you put in. She can live with children and/or other animals.

Image

Puppies need to be neutered at their new owner’s expense. Neutering is a condition of adoption and something we follow up to ensure it has been completed.

We do not rehome puppies to full time workers

Puppies must also be taken to training classes and this will be followed up. If you do not know of training classes in your area please research this before you contact us about rehoming.


All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption. If a puppy is not old enough to be neutered then this must be carried out at the owner’s expense when old enough, and the relevant form completed by the vet and returned to Hope Rescue. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Bob is a 4 year old Bull Lurcher and is currently in emergency boarding kennels near Blackwood.

The Bob Fact File

Dog status: Very good.
Cat status: No cats please
Child status: Unknown
Home alone: Can be left for part time hours.
House training: Excellent
Basic training: Excellent: sit, down, come, stop etc

Unfortunately Bob is having to return into our care as he has fallen out with one of the other dogs in his home; a larger male. He is fine with all other dogs though! He has lived for a couple of years without issue in a multi-dog household with dogs of various sizes and ages and both male and females. He is also well socialised out and about regularly at meet and greets and attending shows and events around the country. Bob cannot unfortunately be rehomed with cats.

Image

Bob is great with people, meeting new people every week. He has not been in a home with children but has met children out and about with no issue. Due to his size and energy levels we would suggest older children unless dog savvy. In large crowds he may get a little shy but with people he knows he loves his cuddles and to lean on you.


Bob has shown no possessive or destructive behaviour and is happy to be touched all over and will easily give up toys and food if asked. He is quick to learn and so willing to please and has excellent understands sit, down, come and stop. He has previously trained in agility and did really well. It would be great if his new home could continue this. He travels well in the car and has been all around the UK in a motor hom with no issues at all. Bob is fine to be left for a morning or afternoon and would be suitable for fulltime workers.

In summary Bob is looking for an active home with a large secure garden or field to run in or long daily walks. He could share with another dog or be the sole focus in the house.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK.

Marley is a 3 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback cross and is currently in foster in Penarth, South Wales.

The Marley Fact File

Dog status: Very good; living with terrier
Cat status: May be possible
Child status: Adult home or older teenagers
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Can be left and may be suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Very good but needs further work on nervous behaviour and his car phobia.

Marley is a conundrum.... He in many ways is the easiest and most biddable dogs we have had in foster excluding his car phobia! But he didn’t cope at all well with his move to a forever home. Having spoken to Ridgeback experts and behaviourists in some ways Marley is typical of the breed while obviously being an individual.

Image

So what do we know?

Marley is in foster with a smaller terrier and has also been in foster with a larger male dog. Marley has been fine with both dogs but was a little nervous around the larger male. We feel he would be better with a calmer canine companion and probably better with a smaller dog. Marley has always been sociable out and about with other dogs and has good social skills. He could be rehomed with canine company or as an only dog.

Marley was in foster with a cat though the cat had been living upstairs and Marley downstairs. There was been no reaction when paths have crossed on opposite side of the baby gate! With careful introductions we believe he would be able to be rehomed with cats.

Image

Marley loves people once he has bonded with them although he can show some nerves with strangers initially. When he is settled and confident around his humans this fear of strangers is greatly reduced. He is in foster with older teenagers and enjoys their company though he would struggle with a loud household. He is a strong bouncy dog and has had little interaction with younger children so we would not consider a home with young children. Marley bonds quicker with females.

Marley has a good level of basic training and good recall when off. He has a perfect sit and knows down, wait, stay and will play happily with toys with people, other dogs or alone. One of his favourites is a ball in a sock that he can fling around. He is well behaved at meal times and will sit patiently. He takes offered treats gently but will help himself if food is left unattended. He is housetrained.

Image

Marley has been left in his foster home with canine company and settles down to sleep showing no anxiety. He isn't left with the resident dog so we feel he would be fine left alone as well. He sleeps downstairs with no complaint. He would need a break in the day if left full time hours and a good run before and after work. Howver he did show some signs of Separation Anxiety when moved so would initially need human company while he settled.

He is none possessive over toys and treats and apart from a couple of dog beds being unstuffed has been non-destructive in the home. He is happy being touched all over and will happily share your knee once he trusts you!

Seems perfect?

Well we wouldn’t go that far but almost when he is settled and happy and understood. What isn’t always obvious is that Marley is exceptionally nervous in certain situations. This was initially most obvious in relation to his car phobia. His foster homes have worked on this and he is fine once inside the car but getting him there was a long process. This involved Marley being reintroduced slowly and positively to the car and things were being taken in baby steps before his move to kennels. This phobia started with no obvious trigger though there will have been one. At the moment Marley seems to be fine with cars!

Image

Unfortunately when he moved homes it was obvious that his fears are more generalised than to just the car though he does bounce back in some areas quicker than others. This stage of introductions is critical for Marley as if he is pushed past his comfort levels or exposed to too much too quickly his behaviour deteriorates rapidly. Being exposed to too much too soon resulted in his car phobia extending to all parked cars and becoming over dependent on one person in the new home to the exclusion of other family members. Help and advice will be given but it is critical that his new family understand before he moves how to manage this transition.

In summary, Marley is looking for an active home with previous experience of large breeds in particularly Ridgebacks and the patience to continue his training with positive based methods at his own speed. He would love a home with a large secure garden to charge around.

Brad is a 4 year old Staffordshire bull terrier and is currently on foster in Treharris, South Wales.

The Brad Fact File
Dog status: Good out on walks but would do best as the only dog in a new home
Cat status: Unknown
Child status: Good, could be rehomed with children over the age of 8 years
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Has been fine for the short periods he has been left by his foster carer
Basic training: Very good

The cold winters nights are drawing near and what better way to warm yourself up than cuddles on the settee from Brad. This is one loving, tactile and adorable dog. Do not miss out on the chance to be his new family. Brad has settled very well in his foster home after a long time spent in kennels. He has shown himself to be house trained, good on the lead, good with other dogs out on walks and a confident and well socialised dog.

Image

Brad is the only dog in his foster home but was assessed in kennels as needing to be the only dog in the home. He was very bonded with Sally an older Staffie who he came in with but unfortunately in a home environment they struggled together. Out and about though Brad has been fine with the dogs he has met. He will grumble at rude dogs that come over a little too quickly but generally has coped very well. Brad will not be rehomed with cats.

Brad is great with humans; adults and children. He adores meeting new people and being made a fuss of and is kind and gentle with the children he has met. Brad is not over demanding and not a bouncy dog that is in your face but will politely ask for attention and enjoys just being with people.

Image

Brad has a good level of basic training; he walks well on his lead and will sit and wait for food. He has shown no destructive or possessive behaviour and travels well in the car. He is house trained and chooses to sleep downstairs at night. He has now been left for a couple of hours and has shown no sign of being distressed or upset. That being said he would not be rehomed with a full time worker as we do not know how he would react to being left for longer periods especially as he will be the only dog in the home. He is not looking for a new home where he will be ignored and side lined. Brad has spent a long time in kennels and he deserves to be included in a family homelife now and get lots of love and affection.

Image

In summary Brad is looking for a new family unit who don’t have any other pets but are looking for an affectionate uncomplicated companion for long walks and cosy evenings. Brad is one of the most grateful dogs we have seen and has bucket loads of love to share.

Sasha is a 2 year small “piggy” Staffie and is currently on foster in Bridgend, South Wales.

The Sasha Fact File

Dog status: Good
Cat status: No cats please
Child status: Good, could be rehomed with children aged 8 plus
House training: Almost there
Home alone: Has been left up to 4 hours as long as she has something (suitable) to chew on.
Basic training: Good basics

Sasha is a little ray of sunshine; a little snuggly, bouncy, loving soul in a petite package. Sasha came to us from the pound so we do not know her breeding but she does look like a proper Staffie.

Image

Sasha is living in foster home with another male Bull breed and after some initial settling in issues has been good as gold. She also came into season just after arriving in foster which hasn’t help wth her socialisation. She could be rehomed with another dog or as an only dog. Sasha is not in foster with cats and would prefer a cat free home!

Sasha is a real people dog and she loves all people, big and small, so is not looking for a new home where she will live on the sidelines. She could be left for part time hours but we feel she wouldn’t cope with being left full time hours even with canine company. She does like a good chew and something to gnaw on needs to be provided when she is on her own. Sasha is in foster with a primary school age child and could be rehomed with children of 8 and above as she can nip when excited.

Image

Sasha has good basic training and is walking well on her lead. She knows sit and paw already and is food orientated so would love to learn some more. She would benefit from going to training classes. Sasha has shown some food possessive behaviour around the other dog in the home but making sure she has time to settle and realising that her food won’t be disappearing will increase her confidence. She travels well in the car, hasn’t shown any issues at the vets and while she is a little afraid of the hoover just moves herself to another room.

Sasha cannot be neutered as yet as she has recently been in season. She will have to be neutered once her hormones settle down and this will be a condition of her adoption and followed up.

Sasha is a young, active dog who thrives on human company and would love to live in a family environment. She can be rehomed with or without another dog and may be suitable for full time workers.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. We have a suggested minimum donation of £160.

Kodiak is a 2 year old Lurcher, possibly Pharaoh Hound, who came into our care from the local pound. He is currently on foster in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

The Kodiak Fact File

Dog status: Good, can be rehomed with other dogs.
Cat status: Absolutely no cats please.
Child status: Could be rehomed with children; 5 and above
House training: Excellent
Home alone: Has been left; suitable for full time workers.
Basic training: Good basics; walks well on the lead and well mannered.

If you are looking for a true family dog then look no further, Kodiak is your man. He is a gentle, affectionate, fun and active dog who loves to be at the centre of family life. He moved into his foster home without a fuss and has been an easy dog to live with as well as winning over the staff at kennels.

Image

Kodiak is in foster with 2 other dogs, male spaniels, and settled well with both without any issues. He has been fine with dogs he has met out and about and with the dogs at kennels and will back off from confrontation. He has shown no possessive behaviour with other dogs or people. Kodiak would love canine company in his new home but could be rehomed as an only dog if her had company for a greater part of the day than not.

Image

Kodiak is not in foster with cats and has shown to have a strong prey drive so we would not be looking at a home with a resident cat. We do have Lurchers that can be rehomed with small furries so this is not a blanket policy.

Kodiak loves all human contact and has shown no signs of nervousness around males or females. He loves a cwtch and has been great with both adults and children. Kodiak could be rehomed with children from the age of 5 upwards.

Image

Kodiak has good basic training but will benefit from further recall training especially when there are distractions. He is fabulous on his lead and doesn’t pull at all. He loves treats and praise and is easily trainable. He will need to be onlead around livestock.

Kodiak is clean in the house, travels really well in the car settling down to sleep within minutes and has been fantastic at the vets. Kodiak is not possessive and will happily share his toys, possessions, food etc with humans. He can be touched all over and showed no fear in the vets. He would need a secure garden.

Image

Kodiak has been left with the other dogs in his foster home and has been fine. He is currently fostered with a full time worker with a break in the day at lunchtime for a walk so could be rehomed with full time workers. It should be noted though that he has always been left with canine company in the foster home.

In summary Kodiak is a very sociable dog and would benefit from a family home with or without canine company. He is an active dog who will need an preferably rural home with long walks (and a sofa!).

Miley is a 12 week old Crossbreed pup who is thought to be Staffie cross something leggy, and is currently on foster in Wigan, Greater Manchester.

The Miley fact file

Dog status: Very good
Cat status: Very good
Child status: Very good. Can be rehomed with children.
House training: Still needs a little help
Home alone: Would need someone around most of the time due to her age.
Basic training: Blank Canvas.

Miley is an adorable puppy but don’t let her looks deceive you as she is a typical bouncy pup who will need lots of training. She came into our care via the pound so we have no knowledge of her breeding or history. She has been in foster since she was 6 weeks old.

Image

Miley is in foster with other dogs varying in age and size and has played equally with all the dogs! She is a typical bouncy puppy but when she is told to back off she does (eventually). She would love a forever home where she will have canine company, however, she could also be rehomed as an only dog as long as she has lots of company. We would suggest that resident dogs are not too old or too frail as Miley can be a bossy little madam!

Miley is also living with cats in her foster home and she does like to play with them although with no malice. Older or timid cats may find her puppy exuberance a little too much.

Image

Miley adores people and while not in foster with children has met some from toddler upwards. She could be rehomed with children but consideration needs to be taken into account for her puppy nipping and mouthing.

Miley is a young pup who arrived in foster with no training at all but she is clever and biddable and aims to please. She does get easily distracted by playing though and doesn’t understand yet which things can be chewed and which things shouldn’t! She still needs help with housetraining but this is improving with a regular routine and regular breaks. She travels well in the car and is great at the vets.

Image

Miley is a blank canvas for training and will need work in all areas; She is too young to have been out and about on walks but will be heading out into the wide world over the nextw eek. She would respond well to positive training methods and would need to attend puppy classes as a condition of rehoming to continue her socialisation and training. Her foster carers have crate trained her and are working with leaving her for short periods and she is looking for a new home which will continue this work. She will be looking for a home where people are around for the best part of the day.

Image

Puppies need to be neutered at their new owner’s expense. Neutering is a condition of adoption and something we follow up to ensure it has been completed.

We do not rehome puppies to full time workers

Puppies must also be taken to training classes and this will be followed up. If you do not know of training classes in your area please research this before you contact us about rehoming.


All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. We have a suggested minimum donation of £160.

Frankie is a 1 year old Terrier and came into our care from the local pound. He is currently in foster in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire.

The Frankie Fact File

Dog status: Very Good
Cat status: May chase, would be better rehomed without cats
Child status: Not in foster with children
House training: Excellent
Home alone: May be suitable with canine company for part time workers
Basic training: Knows the basics but he is a bright dog and would love to learn more.

Image

Frankie is everything a terrier should be, bright, enthusiastic about life, comical, loving and fun. He has settled very well in his foster home and has been a very good boy. Frankie is good with other dogs out on walks and could be rehomed with or without canine company.

Frankie has not been formally cat tested and is not living with cats in foster. However, he does have a chase instinct and has shown an interest in cats he has seen out on walks which mean he would be best rehomed without feline friends.

Image

Frankie can initially be a little nervous around new people whilst eager to say hello. Once he knows you he is very loving and really thrives on human company. Frankie is not in foster with children and we would prefer older children or an adult only home for Frankie.

Frankie is an intelligent dog who has some basic training and has been having fun learning some basic training in his foster home. He will no sit when asked and has good recal in the house and garden. He does pull a little on the lead and will need his recall working on in his new home when out and about.

Image

Frankie has been left for a few hours at a time by his foster mum and may be able to be rehomed to part time workers if he had canine company. He is fully housetrained and is a high energy dog with a bounce that means he would need a securely fenced garden! He loves travelling in the car and has coped well at the vets even with an infected wound which was obviously sore. Frankie can be nervous of loud noises and some general household noises and can be possessive over high value treats. A little positive counter conditioning will reduce this worry he has but is partly the reason why he will not be rehomed with young children at the moment.

Image

In summary Frankie is a real sweetie and once he has met you he is highly affectionate and always happy to see you. He is a high energy dog who would benefit from an active home without young children.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. We have a suggested minimum donation of £160.
