Dogs for Adoption

 

Browse all of the dogs currently in our care that are in search of their forever homes.

If you are interested in re-homing one of our dogs, please e-mail into us at info@allcreatureslife.org to request a "Perfect Match Form".

If you would like to make a donation towards the costs of looking after the dogs and/or the upkeep of our kennels, please use the "DONATE" button on this website. Many thanks! 

 

Important Re-homing Criteria for Dogs

  • Adult dogs - a re-homing donation of £250.00 is requested. Dogs under 12 months - a re-homing donation of £350.00 is requested. This helps us cover the costs of caring for our dogs, neutering, worm and flea treatment and also any further required veterinary care.
  • If you live in rented accommodation you will need your landlord's written consent and will need to send this to us via email. 
  • All dogs rehomed from us will be up to date with flea and worming treatment and will be neutered and microchipped before leaving the Sanctuary. (Unless exempt for medical reasons). 
  • We do not re-home our dogs with existing dogs that are not neutered (unless for medical or exceptional circumstances).

The Process

  • If your application is successful, we will invite all household members in to attend a "meet and greet" with the dog. All household members must attend in order to go ahead to the next stage. 
  • If the above is successful, we will then move onto a home visit to check the premises and the garden. Once this has been passed you will then move onto booking an Adoption Date.
  • All Adopters will receive 4 weeks Free PetPlan Insurance upon Adopting an animal from us. 

After re-homing, you'll be able to access advice from the Sanctuary as needed for the rest of the dog's life.

Our Dog Assessor and Trainer, Gary Mathlin is happy to aid and advise with any queries. 

406+ Days in Kennels

Brock 

Breed: Patterdale, Male

Date of Birth: 27th September 2016

Arrived to Kennels: 21st January 2023

Out of all of the dogs here at the Rescue, I have been here the longest. 
 
Can I live with other dogs? No

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

No

Do I have any medical issues?

No - I had a small lump in my neck removed in February 2024 - the results were benign. 

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes! I always look to my handler for direction and tasty treats.
This lovely lad is Brock. How can you resist such a sweet looking face!
 
Brock has come from a bit of a poor background, where he was used for breeding and baiting in the earlier stages of his life. 
 
He has been in our kennels for a whole year now and it is breaking our hearts. 
 
His favourite thing to do is shred toys and explore the great outdoors. His handlers regularly take him on adventurous walks so that he can take in all the new smells and views. He is fantastic at responding to his handlers for direction and is very responsive for a treat. He is very intelligent! 
 
As Brock is a Patterdale he requires a family/owner who understands the breed and has a highly secure, enclosed garden. 
 
Brock has attended Wild Hearts Classes in the past run by our dog trainer Gary Mathlin. This worked on his dog reactivity. Brock needs an owner who is willing to further this training as he was excelling at a rapid rate! 
 
Brock is an amazing little dog, he just needs someone to take a chance on him!

Patterdale/Terrier Experience Required

Dale

Breed: Patterdale, Male

Date of Birth: January 2019

Arrived to Kennels: 7th July 2023

Can I live with other dogs? I am okay with some dogs when interacting out on a walk - at the Sanctuary I have met two dogs who I have gotten on well with on lead but I would be better suited as the ONLY Pet within the home, as I require a dog experienced owner to dedicate their time to my training. 

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

No - I can sometimes guard objects such as toys/chews - with the proper training from my Adult Handlers, there are ways to best manage this via professional advise from ACGAS.

Do I have any medical issues?

No

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes 

Dale is a very bouncy, lively Patterdale that lives up to the terrier name! He requires an active owner who can dedicate time too his training and provide him with the active lifestyle he requires.

Sadly we do not know a great deal about Dale's background as he was advertised for free online, after his previous owner only had him for four months. The Staff and Volunteers at ACGAS spend time with Dale on a regular basis but he is not coping well with kennel life as he is still very isolated and not receiving the true enrichment that he needs. As mentioned above, Dale does have the potential too get on with other dogs whilst out on walks (on lead), as we have witnessed this but we do not know what he is like in a home environment and therefore, believe he should be the ONLY Pet.

Dale's personality we would describe as a cheeky, happy chappy who knows cues such as "sit" and "spin", he will do anything for a tasty treat! Dale also being a Patterdale breed, loves to shred toys and would benefit from enrichment such as snuffle matts and stuffed toilet rolls that he can tear apart.

Patch 

Breed: Collie

Date of Birth: 29th April 2016

Arrived to Kennels: 14th April 2024

Can I live with other dogs? Potentially. I have met a few dogs at ACGAS without issue. One being our other Rescue dog Molly. I have also lived with a dog in my previous home for 2 years.

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

Potentially - I have lived with children of the age of 7 in my past home. 

Do I have any medical issues?

No

Can I live with cats?

Potentially. 

Am I good on the lead?

Yes - I have always been walked off lead but my handlers at the Sanctuary are getting me used to a harness. I am learning to walk on it very quickly with no issues. 

 

Patch is an extremely sweet boy who is looking for a semi-active home. Patch adores going out on walks and exploring his surroundings but also loves a cuddle and attention. He is toy motivated and will play fetch all day given the opportunity. As Patch has always been walked off lead, in the future once he has formed a bond with his new owner, off lead walking may be possible. The Sanctuary's dog behaviourist Gary Mathlin can advise on this.

Tanya

Breed: Border Collie, Female

Yes

Can I live with young children?

No - I like to chase cats. 

Am I good on the lead?

Yes - I can pull on occasion. 

 

Say hello to the gorgeous Tanya!

Tanya is a lovable girl who is people and dog friendly. Tanya is easily trainable as she has had a lot of training already and would benefit from an owner/family who can perfect her training and participate in some high level obedience! She is an absolute superstar. 

Being a Collie, Tanya will need a certain level of exercise and brain stimulation in order to keep her active and happy.
