Our Dogs...

Important Notes

You may not see the right dog for you on the selection below, but by all means do send us an application, as we always have other dogs coming in, and very often, not all our dogs feature on the website.

Only families have who been homechecked AND who have an appointment with the kennel team within the following 2 weeks to view a dog will have priority viewing on their first choice. 


My name is:


LOCATION: Waltham Abbey
Note: Ages are estimates
Alvin is a fabulous dog who sadly spent the last 5 years of his life in a shelter in Romania. He arrived as a young dog and was never given a chance until now. He is a super steady dog, very reliable and hasn't got a bad bone in his body. He has been sharing a kennel for all these years with his friend Simona and they get on fine mainly because Alvin agrees that she is the boss and she's in charge. He's quite happy to do what he's told bless him.
When Alvin first arrived, he was quite puzzled by the concept of going out for a walk, but once he realised what this was all about, he really took to it. He absolutely loves going out and the sight of his harnesses brings a huge smile to his face! Alvin is a large dog so due to his sheer size, needs someone who can handle a large dog, but he is actually very polite on the lead and does listen to his people.
Alvin has never lived in a home so will need someone committed to house training etc.. He will no doubt pick up on what is expected of him as generally, he aims to please his people.
Alvin had a full medical check-up, dental and blood profile on arrival, being an older gentleman and we are pleased to say he is in good health.
To express interest in Alvin, please fill in an application form online.
Alvin is a very sweet dog who really loves people, we know that he will bring much happiness to any home. Having spent most of his life in a shelter we are looking to place Alvin in a home with experience, as he may develop further once rehomed. He also needs a physically fit family, he is a big boy and he loves his exercise. No small furries and no children as we never place senior dogs with children to allow them a more peaceful time, but plenty of cuddles please.
