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
Babushka is a beautiful older girl who has spent the last 7 years of her life in a Romanian shelter. She came to us before Christmas and has really come out of her shell. She was very subdued in Romania and also suffered terribly with her teeth, which have now been attended to. She has a new lease of life and has started being very affectionate with the team. She can still be a little shy but she is a true little gem, waiting to be discovered by a loving and kind person. She has started playing recently and enjoys the company of other dogs. We think that she would also get along well with cats, as long as they don't try to steal her food from under her nose.
She is incredibly affectionate and loving with the people she is comfortable with, she loves being kissed and held, she's a real cuddle monster and has started learning her basics, like sit and give paw. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Babushka does have some arthritis so would not be able to go very long walks but she really enjoys going out and bouncing around with her doggie friends, for an older girl she can be very playful.
Babushka also particularly likes her den, which is in her kennel and just watches the world go by. A real sweetheart, adored by everyone who meet her. This is a dog who has spent most of her life in a shelter and we assume the early part of it on the street, so might develop further in a home, we can't give a complete picture of who she is, as is the case for most of our ex street dogs, so we would only place her in a patient and understanding home who will be flexible and adapt a little to her as she progresses. She has spent a few days in foster and her family said she was clean, and an absolute joy to have. Babushka knows how to return the love tenfold as lovely little golden oldies like her do. If you are able to offer a loving home to this little lady, please fill in an enquiry form.
Note: we do not place senior dogs with children
Babushka would love to find a family who is very affectionate, she loves cuddles above everything with the people she knows. She would enjoy a nice garden to potter in and do her favourite thing: zoomies! She can't go on big treks due to her age, but certainly enjoys a good walk. Babushka can share with cats and enjoys the company of dogs outside, we are still assessing her suitability for a multi dog household. She is looking for a flexible, experienced and loving home, happy to let her live life at her own pace, taking her on nice walks where she can meet other dogs and available for cuddles when she asks for them would be amazing. If you feel you are this person or family, please get in touch by filling an enquiry form online.
