Special Needs Dogs

These are dogs in our care but are either working on a behavioural programme or undergoing medical treatment prior to been offered for adoption. 

Name: Ruby
Breed: American Bulldog cross
Sex: Female
Age: 8 years
Colour: Brindle & White
Dog friendly:


Cats: No
Children: Adult


Ruby is a lovely affectionate girl, full of exuberance and is at her happiest charging around the garden with her toys and then coming to flop on you for a cuddle. She is quite a clumsy girlie and doesn’t realise her size or her weight (35 kilos) and likes to try and sit on your lap!! 

She underwent a cruciate and meniscus tear operation at the end of last summer which meant that walks and socialisation training were suspended for some months, the operation was a great success and she is no longer in pain and back to charging around the garden.  

Ruby is very much a people dog and loves nothing more than you to spend time in her company interacting with toys, treats and cuddles and is even very gentle with elderly people despite her normal clumsiness .  

She is a big favourite amongst all of our volunteers, even the ones that are not normally bullbreed lovers as she gives everyone such a wonderful greeting and is genuinely pleased to see them.Ruby is not keen to share this and as such we are looking for a semi rural home with a large garden where she can have some decent off lead playing and any walks can be onlead.

Ruby is currently in foster and her foster mum can confirm that she is easy to have around, happy to occupy herself with a bone or rawhide and take herself of into the garden to play with a toy. 

She greets everyone with a bottom wag and a smile and is good company and can be found beside you helping in the kitchen (she does counter surf!!) or on gardening duty down in the veg patch.


Ruby is extremely sensitive,  and always keen to please and loves any form of fuss, especially tummy tickles, please consider this big bundle of love.



Ruby  is vaccinated, microchipped and  neutered .

Can you Help our ‘Special’ Little Man?


Jakey is a really affectionate tri-coloured Parson Terrier whose hobbies include playing with toys, doing tricks for liver treats and squirrel and bird watching.

He is very stimulated by noise, especially engine/traffic noise and the motion of any wheels.


We feel that he may have spent much of his early life outside near a busy road and amused himself by chasing the traffic and then when he became over stimulated chased his tail in frustration. 


He is very bright and very quick to learn new tricks but also very OCD and needs a very strict routine, we do feel that he is possibly on the Autism scale.


He is a loving little man and is at his happiest when he is with you but also needs some 'down time' on his own.   For this reason we are looking for a 'special home'- an adult only with terrier experience,  in a rural situation without other dogs, where he has access to fields for walking without having to journey in the car or walk along a road with traffic.


Jakey is a happy boy and so deserves a second chance, so if you would like to help him and work under guidance from our behaviourist, please get in touch. He will repay you a hundred times over with lots of  love and kisses

Jakey is neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped.
