KIA

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Boxer X  Female  5 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi everyone, my name is Kia and I’m looking for my forever home.

The team at HULA doesn’t have any background history on me as I was a stray, however they have found me to be a very sweet girl and they know I love human company.

I love being out and about but I will need to go to training classes. I do pull a lot on my lead...what can I say, I’m excited to be out, so I’ll need training on this too.

I’ll need someone around most of the day, but I can be left for short periods to start with and have this gradually increased.

I can be quite dominant around other dogs so would like to be the only dog in the house. The team here is socializing me with other dogs though.

There’s nothing I love more than my food, but I do eat it too quickly so now they feed me in an anti-gulping bowl!

My Ideal Home

  • WOULD LIKE TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 12 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 1-2 HOURS IF WELL EXCERCISED BEFOREHAND

DOUGAL

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Patterdale Terrier  Male  15 months
 History and Recommendations
Well hello there, my name's Dougal and I’m only 15 months old.

Although I am an extremely cute lad, I am a working type dog so anyone who would like to give me a new home would need to research my breed and our characteristics.

I must attend training classes in my new home as I need basic training and also socializing with dogs as I will bark at them while on the lead. This is frustration and I need to learn to behave quietly around dogs and maybe I could then find some doggie friends, but this will take time and patience.

The one thing I love most is being out and about on a walk and a tennis ball but I need to work on my recall and dog socialization before I can be let off the lead. I can be quite bossy in the home and therefore I need to know the rules from the start else I have been known to push my luck, this is why I must have an experienced owner.

After a nice walk I do like to relax and chill out, so I can be left on my own for up to 5 hours.

We ask that any potential adopters research the Patterdale breed in-depth before thinking about adoption, a great starting place is the Patterdale Terrier Rescue website.

My Ideal Home

  • WOULD LIKE TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • AN ACTIVE AND EXPERIENCED HOME
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 15 YEARS OLD
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 4-5 HOURS PROVIDING I’VE BEEN WELL EXERCISED

BADGER

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

My name’s Badger and I am a loving and friendly lad. I’m an active boy who enjoys being out and about on walks so would love a new home where I’m kept busy.

When I came to HULA I did have ringworm and I have now been treated for this and am all clear now. This is why my coat looks a little thin but it is starting to grow now.

I have been mixed here at HULA with other dogs and I was really good with them so I can live with other dogs in my new home pending on introductions.

I can be left on my own for approximately 1-2 hours as long as I’ve been well exercised before I’m left, as do get a little distressed when left on my own but with training I can be taught to be left for longer.

I came here to HULA as a stray so the HULA girls have not got any back ground information about me, but they have said I give the best hugs and fuss.

My Ideal Home

  • AN ACTIVE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 12 YEARS OLD
  • CAN LIVE WITH OTHER DOGS PENDING INTROS
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR APPROXIMATELY 1-2 HOURS

CZAR

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Springer Spaniel  Male  8 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

My name’s Czar and I’m a friendly and outgoing chap who likes to be around people.

Please don’t be fooled by my age, because although I may be a slightly older guy I am still very active and like to go out on walks.

I’m looking for a special home with a patient and experienced owner as I can get anxious in some situations. My carers at HULA can give you more information about this and the training they’ve been doing with me.

I’ve been mixed with other dogs while I’ve been at HULA and get on brilliantly with them all so I could live with a canine companion (providing we get on well together during our introductions).

I can be left on my own for 3-4 hours as long as I’ve been well exercised before you leave me.

Can you offer me a place in your heart and a space in your home?

My Ideal Home

  • CHILDREN IN THE FAMILY SHOULD BE OVER 10 YEARS OLD
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 3-4 HOURS AS LONG AS I’M WELL EXERCISED
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH ANOTHER DOG PENDING INTROS

Photo of Esther the dog
Hello, my name is Esther I arrived at HULA from a charity that helps dogs like me get out of the dog pound and find a forever home. Sadly this means I have no background history.

I’m a loving and friendly girl, although I can be a little boisterous and excitable at times. I’m also an active girl, who loves being out and about on walks and playing and it has being said that I love balls and toys!

As I am eager to be out on walks I can be strong on my lead so would benefit from training classes to help me overcome this, as-well as build up my socializing skills.

I can be left on my own for approximately 2-3 hours as long as I’ve been well exercised before I’m left. I will also need some mental stimulation to keep me occupied as I love to be kept active.

I need to be the only dog in the home, as I would love to have all your love and affection on me.

Can you offer me a space in your home and a place in your heart?

My Ideal Home

  • AN ACTIVE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 15 YEARS OLD
  • WOULD LIKE A HOME WITHOUT OTHER DOGS
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR APPROXIMATELY 2-3 HOURS

QUEENIE

 Breed  Sex  Age
 JRT  Female  5 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Well hello there, my name's Queenie and I’m a 5 year old, Jack Russell Terrier.

I am deaf but this doesn’t stop me from doing anything. I do know a couple of hand signals for commands but would love to learn more.

As you can see I’m extremely cute and looking for my forever home. I’m not used to long walks so would like someone how understands that I will need short walks to begin with until I’m strong enough to go on longer walks.

I was never left in my previous home, but I have been tested in one of the quiet rooms here at HULA, when I first went in I did bark and scratch at the door but after a couple of minutes I did settle and just slept for a couple of hours, so I can be left for 2-3 hours if exercised beforehand.

I have been mixed here at HULA with other dogs, however I do like my toys too much and will tell a dog off if they go near my toys. But I will always give you my toy to throw for me.

Can you offer me a comfy spot in your home, or even my own tennis balls to play with??

Special Thanks

Thank you to Bridget Davey Photography for many of the superb photographs featured on the HULA website.




Pedigree logo
Our friends at Pedigree will be feeding all of the dogs in our care for 12 months. It’s part of their Feeding Brighter Futures campaign, which will see them pledge to feed 1 million meals to rescue dogs up and down the country.

The initiative will see the dogs here at HULA provided with the right nutrition they need to get them on the road to their new home – from wet and dry food for balanced daily meals, to care and treat items used as tools for behaviour training and improving issues such as poor oral hygiene.

To find out more about the campaign and learn about the difference good nutrition can make to rescue dogs like the ones here at HULA, visit www.pedigree.com/brighterfutures or www.facebook.com/wearefordogs

HULA provides rescue shelter for dogs given up for adoption

For information about the intake of dogs to HULA please read our page Relinquishing a pet.

Assessment

All incoming dogs are assessed by our staff, using nationally recognised standards. This, coupled with what we know of the dog’s history, means that the dogs can be graded, these gradings are used by our staff and volunteers to help them know how to handle each dog safely:

Management

Once the dogs have been assessed and graded, a careplan is put into operation. Some dogs need calming sessions and affection rather than long, energetic exercise sessions. Others need a disciplined approach to issues such as jumping, pulling or mouthing.

These requirements are displayed on their kennels, and the volunteer walkers put them into action. They record, on the daily sheets, the progress the dogs are making. Based on these reports the dogs’ level grading can be adjusted as appropriate. These sheets are displayed when the kennels are open for viewing, and visitors are encouraged to read them alongside the laminated pen-portraits of the dogs.


Some of our dogs are also featured on The Dog Rescue Pages
