This dog has now been reserved and we are no longer accepting applications.

If you have completed an application for this dog and the dog has not been reserved to you, you may wish to select an alternative dog that is waiting for a home. You will not need to repeat your application if a homecheck has been completed, you can email to advise you which dog you would like to adopt.

During the pandemic, we are much busier than usual and as we are run by volunteers we are unfortunately unable to respond to everyone individually about the status of their application.

Please rest assured your application is appreciated and we recommend checking the status information for updates on the dog you wish to adopt until you are either contacted and given details of the next steps or the dog is reserved.

Occasionally dogs may become available again and the status bar will change to reflect this.

Thank you for your interest in this dog and for your patience and understanding in these difficult times.
