Dogs in Need from Spirit of the Dog


See our facebook page for more details.

We are always looking for homes for unwanted dogs. This is difficult as we do not have our own centre. However if you would be willing to take on a dog that is desperate for a second chance in life please contact Claudine on 07999 518244


Recent rehoming stories:

Loki the Rottweiler/Dobermann cross came to us in desperate need of a home. The one year old male could not find a space in any rescue kennels and was facing being put to sleep. People were scared of him because of his size and playful/boisterous behaviour, even labelling him potentially aggressive. For our behaviourist, Claudine, it was tear-jerking seeing him run free chasing a ball and happily being stroked by strangers, as it was for Sarah who decided she would give him a home. Sarah is currently integrating Loki with her resident dogs, a German Shepherd and a Dobermann.
