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:

Doc Diesel

LOCATION: Waltham Abbey
Diesel needs to be visited a couple of few by any family looking to adopt him.
Doc 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 and 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.
Diesel is a collie cross and very typical of his breed, so collie experience is required 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 all the volunteers and really enjoys being out, but he has a very sensitive nature, as many of our dogs do, and needs his people to be in tune with him. Generally speaking though he is a very positive boy. He does have some underlying insecurities which will however require an experienced family, able to read him and manage him when he feels anxious.
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 time a day at the moment, hopefully to be reduced to 2. He is very good, he lets us administer the cream no problem, so he is a good patient with us. But this is something to be aware of for any family able to offer him a home.

A confident, active family with solid experience (preferably shepherd/collie), in tune with dogs, understanding of sensitive natures with no children and no small furries. The family for Diesel needs to have few visitors in the home or the ability to put him away when people come in as he can be guardy in the home.
He also needs a family committed to 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, and understand his nature. He is absolutely adorable, but he is a sensitive boy.
If you are able to give this happy and enthusiastic boy a home, please fill in an enquiry form
