Our Dogs...

IMPORTANT NOTES: 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. 

Also, whilst some dogs may not be showing as 'Reserved' on the website, they may already have interest. If the dog you are interested in ends up not being the one for you, don't be disheartened, we have many wonderful dogs coming into the rescue regularly and the right friend will be out there for you, as this has proved to be the case time and time again with families who have adopted from us.


My name is:


LOCATION: Waltham Abbey
Butch is an extremely friendly and affectionate boy who bears the scars of a hard life. He is a dog no one in the rescue will forget as he has such presence. When Butch first arrived into the rescue he was in a bad shape and a bit of a plodder who liked to stroll along at a gentle pace with stops to take in the scenery and wildlife. He has since put on an extra 30% of weight, he went from 20kg to a healthy 30kg and has found great energy. He loves to run in the paddock and is quite the master at zoomies! Butch is very responsive to treats and enjoys some training. He is not interested in traffic, people or horses, however he can be a bit choosy with his canine companions, saying that he has become much more relaxed with dogs too, and goes on pack walks. He is the most adorable of characters and wins the heart of all he meets! Butch is ideally suited to a relaxed and caring home where he can live out his life without stress and with lots of love. He has a real presence and we anticipate that he will develop further in a home. We are looking to place Butch with a family who have dog experience and able to adapt to his needs as they will become more apparent in a home. We do not rehome senior dogs with children as we feel they enjoy a quieter life.
