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:

Search #DieselUnderdog on facebook
Diesel is a wonderful dog who came to us as a puppy but sadly his family were unable to keep him due to a change in their circumstances. He is back with us in the rescue looking for a forever home.
Having lived in a home he is house trained and has got basic training. He is also very comfortable with all things to do with living in a home unlike some of our other dogs who have no home experience. Diesel is also very obedient and goes off lead with the kennel team. He likes to train, he likes to exercise and he likes to please his people.
Diesel is a collie cross and very typical of his breed, so collie experience is highly recommended for him. He has an incredibly endearing personality, and whilst with us he has been nothing but joyful and happy. He is happy to trot off with volunteers especially those he knows well, and really enjoys being out, but he has a sensitive nature, as many of our dogs do, and needs his people to be in tune with him. A family who is observant and can anticipate how he is feeling with new people or situations would be what Diesel needs.
Diesel does have a medical condition affecting his eyes, which will require medicating as an ongoing thing. He suffers with an auto immune condition which means that he requires steroid cream applied to his eyes 3 times a day at the moment, hopefully to be reduced to 2. He is very good, he lets us administer the cream no problem, he is a good patient.
A confident, compassionate, active family with solid experience (preferably shepherd/collie), in tune with dogs, understanding of sensitive natures with no children and no small furries.
He also needs a family who would enjoy spending time with him, training to keep him stimulated and able to go on good walks daily.
Before adopting Diesel, we would like any interested family to visit him a couple of times and really bond with him. He is absolutely adorable, and anyone investing in his happiness will have it returned tenfold. He is a super dog with a great joy for life which is infectious.
If you are able to give this happy and enthusiastic boy a home, please fill in an enquiry form.
