Dogs for Adoption

 

Dog Of The Week: Willow - See her rehoming information below! 

 

 

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".  While we will try to reply to every application, this isn't always possible due to demand, therefore if you do not receive a reply within 14 days you should presume your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. 

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.

Brock 

Patterdale, Male, Date of Birth 27th September 2016 (7 years old), Arrived to kennels 21st January 2023.

Out of all 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

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 came into our care on the 21st January 2023, due to his owners not being able to provide for all of his needs anymore. Brock has come from a bit of a poor background, where he was used for breeding and baiting at the earlier stages of his life. Due to this and his breed, he has a very high prey drive.
 
Brock is only seven years old and is very typical for his breed, he is very friendly towards people but is not a "lap dog". Brock enjoys exploring in our enclosed fields and occasionally shreds his favourite toy when he picks and chooses! He adores going on long, adventurous walks with his handlers and is good on a long-line. He walks to heel and is always looking to his handlers for direction.
Brock has attended Wild Hearts Classes in the past, which worked on his dog reactivity. Brock needs an owner who is willing to further his training, as he was excelling at a rapid rate! As Brock is a very energetic, smart dog, he will massively benefit from this to keep his brain healthy and satisfied. He is not the type of dog that will be happy with an around the block walk twice a day. 
 
Since Brock is our longest resident within the kennels, he has formed a bond with a few of his handlers and now responds well to them. He loves to stand up on his back legs to take a treat and will wait ever so patiently for a que. Brock cannot live in a home with cats or any small furries, this is due to his natural instincts as a breed. Brock would also prefer and be best suited, to living in a home where he is the only dog. A person/persons with experience of this breed would be beneficial to him. We have been informed that Brock is not keen on going to the groomers or being overly handled in this way. 
 
Ideally, he would like a home with a medium to large, fully enclosed garden where he can explore. He would be happy to live in a family with dog savvy children, over the age of 13.
Brock is an amazing little dog, he just needs someone to take a chance on him!

Dale

Patterdale, Male, Date of Birth January 2019 (4 years old), Arrived to kennels 7th July 2023.
Can I live with other dogs? Yes

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

No

Do I have any medical issues?

No

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes 

This bouncy chap is Dale! Dale came into us on the 7th July 2023 due to his previous owner working long hours and sadly not having enough time for him. Unfortunately we do not have a lot of information on Dale's background. His previous owner only had him for three months. We know that he was used to being left alone in the house for 13+ hours a day. We do not know how much of the outside world he has actually experienced. 

Dale is a very affectionate boy who loves cutches and fuss. He is rather fond of his carers and always greets them with a waggy tail every morning.

He is obsessed with food and will spin and spin and spin in order to impress you to receive a treat! He is a very excitable boy and his energy is unmatched. Dale has recently made friends with a Staff's Labrador and they happily play together in our enclosed fields. Dale loves a game of chase! 

He loves toys and responds well to his name but we would not trust him off lead, in an unsecure environment due to his breed. Dale has quite a high prey drive and likes to chase anything that catches his eye! Such as squirrels and birds. As small as Dale is, he can jump quite high to our shock! He often gives visitors the impression that there is a mini trampoline in his kennel. Therefore a heavily secured garden with high fencing is a must for him. 


Dale would do well in a quieter home with or without another dog. Dale has met a few dogs whilst in our care and has got on well with them as mentioned above. He would love for his new family to be home a good part of the day to keep him company. This is to help Dale fully settle into a home, as we are unsure as to how many homes he has had already. 

Dale can be a bit of a grumpy boy at the Vets and isn't a massive fan of going there - potential adopters must be aware of this. 

Beau

Labrador X, Female, Date of Birth 2011 (13 years old), Arrived to kennels 29th July 2023.

Can I live with other dogs? Yes

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

Yes

Do I have any medical issues?

Yes - I have had Entropion Surgery to correct my inverted eyelashes. Due to years of scarring, my eyesight will sadly never be 100% again but I am now out of pain. I am currently on Apoquel tablets for my itchy skin and may need these for the remainder of my life. I am also on eye drops for "dry eye". 

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes 

 

Beau sadly came into our Rescue on the 29th July 2023 in quite poor condition. Sadly, she was found to be suffering from an uncomfortable condition named 'Entropion', Alopecia and other skin conditions were also noted at the time. We have an estimated time on how long she has been suffering with these conditions and it amounts to 8+ years.

She had been receiving treatment on and off for this over the last few years but after having the conditions for so long, has now been left with chronic, permanent scarring around her eyes. 

Beau underwent Entropion surgery in October 2023, it was a huge success! 

 

Her personality is one in a million. She is a happy go lucky dog and she greets everyone with a wagging tail and adores to be fussed. Due to her being a Lab X, she is OBSESSED with food and will quickly gravitate towards the person with the most treats. Although Beau's eyesight is not 100% due to the damage, there is certainly nothing wrong with her nose! 

She adores attention from her carers and is very keen on playing fetch, just don't throw it too far or she won't see it! Beau's range of vision is around 13ft. 

Beau has met a number of dogs since being at ACGAS and has got on well with them. One of her best friends is a golden Labrador. Beau could potentially live with another dog, providing they can match her energy and personality. Her adopters need to be patient and aware of all of the above. We are looking for an individual or family who can let her settle at her own pace and give her gentle encouragement to further her confidence and give her the loving, comfortable home that she deserves. 

Due to her building great bonds with her handlers here and showing us that she is keen to enjoy her life, we are confident that she will absolutely flourish in the right home.  

Missy

Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Female, Date of Birth 3rd June 2016 (7 years old), Arrived to kennels 31st July 2023.

Can I live with other dogs? Yes

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

Yes

Do I have any medical issues?

No 

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes 

Being a Staffy, she is quite a big girl weighing in at 18kg. Important information for Adopters to know is that Missy thinks she is a lap dog!
 
Missy is an absolute softy at heart and adores seeing all of her human friends at the Sanctuary. On more than one occasion, she has been more interested in us than the other dogs. Missy is always happy and has a gorgeous personality. She will often lay on her back for you to give her belly rubs. She is a typical happy staffy! Her favourite thing to do is roll in the grass and play with a football. 
 
Although Missy is a very happy, confident dog, she does display signs of slight separation anxiety in the kennels and can do what we call a "Staffy cry". In a home when she has bonded with someone, this may change as she will feel settled and secure.
 
She does know basic commands such as sit and down but it is a one in a million chance that you can get her to stay still for two seconds, her tail is constantly wagging! 
She is good on the lead and does not tend to pull much. A sensible harness is recommended for her outdoor time. 
 
She could potentially live with another dog in the future as she has met our Staff Labrador here at the Sanctuary and they have got along well. All Missy wants to do is play!
A meet and greet would be needed at our Site with the successful applicant if they have an existing dog, as they would need to be tested to see if they are comfortable with Missy's boisterous energy! As she has never been around cats before, she is best suited to a home without one. 
 
Missy loves her home comforts and would be more than happy and content with humans who can shower her in attention and let her cuddle up next to them on the sofa. Missy has broken two garden chairs with us here just due to the shear excitement around her handlers.

CURRENTLY IN FOSTER

Flynn

X Breed, Male, Date of Birth 20th July 2018 (5 years old), Arrived to kennels 8th July 2023.

Can I live with other dogs? Yes

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

Yes

Do I have any medical issues?

Yes - I am currently being treated for Grade 2 Heart Worm. I am on crate rest until February 2024 to ensure the medication I have received carries out it's required purpose. Please ask the Animal Welfare Team for further information. 

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes 

Say hello to our sweet boy Flynn. Flynn is a Romanian Rescue and had been living in Romania all of his life until he was brought over to the UK in June 2023. Since being in with us, his confidence has blossomed and his true, cheeky personality has started to shine through. He is very puppy like in his mannerisms! 

Flynn is amazing on the lead and does not pull, he tends to walk just in front of you with a slow stride. He can become spooked at certain traffic and will require training with this. Off lead, all Flynn wants to do is RUN!, he has his moments where he has bursts of energy and when he just wants to potter and sniff. Due to Flynn's background of being a Romanian street dog, we would never recommend that he be let off lead, in an unsecure environment. 

Flynn is an absolute joy to be around and always greets us with a wagging tail. He loves to play with his toys and adores doing zoomies. He is a very energetic boy with a lot of energy. He loves a butt scratch and will happily be brushed when it is shedding season!

He is especially energetic when playing with other dogs and has even made some doggy friends whilst being at the Sanctuary. 

He came into our care from a multi dog kennel and is used to being around 25 other dogs in a pen at one time. Flynn is currently thriving in Foster with another doggo friend who he adores. Flynn cannot live with a cat as he has not had much exposure to them. 

Flynn is trusting of humans to a certain degree. We believe he had minimal contact with humans before he was sent to the Romanian Shelter. He is better around women than he is with men. With lots of time and treats, Flynn's trust in people has grown and he has built a bond with the staff at the Sanctuary but this can still falter at times in front of strangers. Which is completely understandable given his history.

Ronnie

French Bulldog, Male, Date of Birth 27th April 2021 (2 years old), Arrived to kennels 20th July 2023. 

Can I live with other dogs? Yes

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

No

Do I have any medical issues?

Yes - I am currently on Apoquel tablets to help with my itchy skin. I may need to be on these for the remainder of my life. I am also allergic to anything CHICKEN flavoured. 

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes 

Say hi to our lovely Frenchie Ronnie.

Ronnie is a fantastic, energetic, bouncy boy who is always so happy to see new people. He is a joy to be around and his energy lights up any room.

Ronnie was brought into us on the 20th July 2023 due to his unhappiness in his home. Ronnie was sadly displaying negative behaviour towards the 8 month old child in the home when there was food involved. Due to this, Ronnie is to be rehomed with children over 10 years of age only. He has always been loving towards the 9 and 10 year olds in his previous home. He is absolutely fine with teenagers and adults. Ronnie can be food possessive around another dog and people on occasion. 

Ronnie currently spends a lot of his day with his 5 other rescue friends in our enclosed field. He tends to potter around and do his own thing. He will occasionally play a game of chase if he feels like it. When treats are involved, Ronnie will bark at you to give him some first. 

Ronnie loves nothing more than sitting on your lap and having cuddles. He will make a great companion. 

Lenny

Greyhound X, Male, Date of Birth January 2022 (2 years old), Arrived to kennels 5th September 2023.

Can I live with other dogs? Yes - depending on the dog

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

No

Do I have any medical issues?

No

Can I live with cats?

No

Am I good on the lead?

Yes but my confidence needs building.

Lovely Lenny came into us on the 5th September 2023 after being found as a stray in Merthyr South Wales. Lenny was taken in by Hope Rescue before coming to us, as sadly they were already operating at full capacity. 

Unfortunately we have no idea where Lenny has come from and what his life was like before he was on the streets but from what we have observed of his personality so far, he is a very polite and quiet boy who adores a fuss from his handlers.

Unfortunately Lenny is not coping well in kennels and is in need of some home comforts ASAP. He adores his cwtchy beds here and is a cuddle bug at quiet time. 

Lenny walks great on the lead and with further training, will be easy to handle. 

He loves to run laps around our enclosed field with his doggo friends at the Sanctuary and due to his breed, he has some speed! Lenny gets on with other dogs and will often try to play a game of tag with them, if they can keep up that is! Lenny would be well suited to living with another dog of a similar breed. Site hound/Lurcher/Greyhound.

Cilla and Lulu

Breed - X Breeds (Cockerpoo X's)
Colour - Cilla - Black with white chest. Lulu - Grey
Gender - Females (Sisters)
Date of Birth 3rd September 2015
Arrived at ACGAS 26th October 2023

Cilla and Lulu are a terrific duo on the search for their forever home. Both are 8 years old, their breed is a mix! Cavashon, Cockapoo? Who knows! 

Cilla and Lulu arrived at our Sanctuary as their owner could no longer afford them financially. They are a bonded pair and would like to be housed together. They could live with other dogs but are not suitable to live with cats as they like to chase. They are wonderful dogs who love being around people. They adore having fuss and attention from their carers.

Both girls are very good on the lead and enjoy going out for walks, they will play in our enclosed field but only if they feel like it!

When they first arrived to us they were quite nervous and Lulu can still be a little unsure of new people at times, therefore, basic training will be needed when settling into a new home. They may need reminding of house training due to the new environment. Our Kennel staff were using puppy pads for the first few days they were with us, before they got into their walking routine. 

They are sure to bring you lots of joy!

Gizmo 

Breed - Yorkshire Terrier 
Colour - Grey and Tan
Gender - Male
Date of Birth - 1st May 2017
Arrived at ACGAS 31st October 2023

This scrumptious boy is Gizmo!

Gizmo loves nothing more than exploring new places. He is a very happy go lucky dog and is always excited to make new friends humans and dogs alike!

In his down time, Giz loves being snuggled on your lap for some love and attention. Even though he is a small boy with short legs, he loves to go on long walks with his handlers.

We sadly do not have a lot of information on Gizmo's background but he was found wandering the streets in Pontypool, on a busy road and was taken in by a member of the public who then took him to a local Vets. Gizmo's owners were contacted via the Microchip details but they did not want him back.

After much love at the Sanctuary and a good hair cut, he is now ready to start his new journey.

Gizmo is very friendly upon meeting other dogs and has met a number of them at the Sanctuary, therefore we believe he could live with another. We do not recommend that Gizmo lives with a cat. We believe Gizmo would enjoy a household where his humans are home for most of the day so that he can receive plenty of around the clock attention. 

If you would like to adopt this lovely boy, please email into us to request a Perfect Match Form. 

Willow

Cocker Spaniel X Beagle, Female, Date of Birth 24th July 2022 (1 1/2 years old) Arrived to kennels 20th November 2023.

 
Can I live with other dogs? Yes

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

Yes

Do I have any medical issues?

No

Can I live with cats?

Yes

Am I good on the lead?

Yes but I will need a bit of training as I like to pull and jump up at you!

This lovely little lady is Willow. 

Willow is a little fire cracker and loves nothing more than being in the great outdoors exercising and training. Willow knows basic commands and LOVES to play fetch!

She will need an active family who can give her plenty of long walks and ideally, training, so that the spaniel part of her brain can be satisfied!

Willow loves cozy lap cuddles and receiving all the love and attention she can get. She is an extremely sweet, friendly girl. She enjoys the company of other dogs on walks and also does well with them off lead. She can be a little nervous around them upon first greeting, especially if they are bigger than her but within a few minutes, she is running laps around them. 

Willow came into the Sanctuary from a flat environment with no garden and was sadly, howling quite a lot which made neighbours concerned. With Willow being half spaniel half Beagle, she will not be suited to a small home with no garden as she is a very energetic breed. 

Willow is looking for a home where she can go on regular adventures with owners who have a lot of time for her. We believe she can live with children and other dogs due to her friendly nature. Willow does not react to cats from what we have observed. She also travels very well in a car/van. 

Molly (Chocolate) & Jazz (Black)

Labradors, Female, Dates of Birth - Molly 28th December 2014. Jazz 14th February 2012 (9 & 11). Arrived to kennels 20th November 2023. 

 
Can I live with other dogs? Yes

Can I live with teenagers?

Yes

Can I live with young children?

Yes

Do I have any medical issues?

Molly - No. Jazz - Yes. I have two lumps on my body that are being biopsied on the 6th December.

We are both due to have dentals done the week of the 4th December. 

Can I live with cats?

Yes

Am I good on the lead?

Yes

Molly & Jazz are absolutely wonderful dogs who are on the lookout for a new home. Ideally we would love for them to be rehomed together but they can go separately. Molly is a very bouncy girl with a lot of energy, she gets excited very quickly and will jump up and give you little play nips. Jazz is the older of the two and will be at your side at all times. Jazz loves to plod along on a walk and will act as your shadow, where as Molly is usually off finding the muddiest patch too play in. Both are extremely friendly dogs with a very sociable nature. Molly is currently is a little chunky therefore, she will need treats in moderation!
