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, Essex
Multiple visits required
Experienced home only.
Paddy is a hugely endearing little dog, who sadly found himself coming back to rescue after having spent 3 years in his original home. He I therefore housetrained and walks well on the lead. He also knows basic commands. He originally came to us in 2013 as a puppy and was returned to the rescue following a change in circumstances. Since his arrival back in the rescue, the team has worked very hard showing Paddy that people can be trusted, as he found it difficult initially to make friends with both people and dogs. He has progressed a great deal since being in our care and we know that he will continue to do so in a home.
He is now walked by many different people including all the volunteers and really enjoys spending time outdoors. He loves running around with canine friends and going on long walks, and we are continuing to work on his socialisation skills. He is now in a very good place and a loving and committed home is what he needs to start his life again. He particularly loves belly rubs, Paddy is a real cuddle monster and we know that as much as he would benefit from a family, he has a lot to offer. Once you are in Paddy's heart, you are in his heart forever.
If you are in a position to offer this little dog the love and environment he requires, please consider giving him a chance so that he can go on the long walks that he loves and explore nature, which is his favourite things to do. Paddy needs an experienced and committed family because he needs someone who can read and understand him. He would also require a fairly quiet home with no children. He would absolutely relish being someone's special friend and of all of the dogs we have in our care, nobody shows more enthusiasm for the people he loves than our little iPad (as we affectionately call him). All of us in the team who know his lovely ways absolutely adore him and we feel that he can bring someone much happiness, given the right environment and understanding of his insecurities.
Paddy needs to be visited on a number of occasions to help with bonding. If you would like to know more about Paddy or visit him, please get in touch via the application form online.
