SETH

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffie Cross  Male  12 years
 History and Recommendations
Here is one of the happiest boys we know, Seth!

Seth is just about ready to find his new home, settle down and retire!

Poor old Seth has had a rough time and was found straying with a severe eye and ear infection. Due to the eye infection being so terrible and ulcerated we have had to remove his eye after the treatment was just not working. We also had to take a few teeth out and castrate him, quite a lot bless him but added to that Seth was losing weight and we were not sure if he had a lump in his tummy, we opened him up at the same time and thank god he was clear, even after all that this boy was so happy to see us! The only word to describe Seth is Kind… He is just so kind.

So now it’s time to give this lad some kindness back, if you feel you can offer him the retirement home he needs then please get in touch. Seth has been with us since December 2014 and needs to move on to him own brand new family.

Seth is great with people and dogs but care must be taken when approaching his blind side as you might scare him.

HOLLY

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Border Collie  Female  5 years
 History and Recommendations
Hello there, my name’s Holly.

I am a lovely 5 year old Border Collie. I’m a loving girl who loves fuss, cuddles and a good old belly rub, who can resist one of those?! I can be a little nervous of new people so I need to live with experienced owners who will understand this although once I know you I will be yours forever.

I am better suited to a home with older children, as I do have collie traits. I’m also not keen on people being around me when I’m eating, so I’ll need to be left alone to eat in peace.

I have lived with another dog previously however, we didn’t always get along, and I love to have all the attention on me! I need an active home that will keep me physically and mentally stimulated but a home that’s not too busy as I am nervous during some situations.

I love my toys particularly tennis balls however I can be quite lazy and will only bring them half way back to you!

My Ideal Home

  • WOULD NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • DOESN’T WANT TO LIVE WITH CATS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 15 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR A MAXIMUM OF 4 HOURS
  • CANNOT LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF WOUGHTON ON THE GREEN

BRUCE

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffie Cross  Male  5 years
 History and Recommendations
Pleased to meet you, my name is Bruce.

I am a very sweet boy who loves a good fuss and a cuddle, I was found in a garden where I spend the first four years of his my life. Living all alone in a back yard – I was not taken out during that time and missed out on so many important life lessons. I did have a lot of baggage on arrival at the training kennel where I required a lot of retraining before I could safely leave them to come to HULA for re-homing. We also believe I was trying to be sold on a website for £1.00. This training and my rescue was carried out by Safe and Sound.

I must attend training classes in my new home as I need basic training and also socializing with other dogs as they can worry me a litte but I cold live with a quiet female intros depending.

I really enjoy the outdoor world and love going on long walks. I enjoy having loads of cuddles and playing with lots of toys. I enjoy keeping myself busy and I really like Kong and activity feeding toys. These help to give my human friends a break while I am playing.

After a nice walk I like to relax and chill out, so I can be left on my own for up to 3-4 hours. I do find it hard when you initially leave me but as soon as you're gone I will curl in a ball and sleep away.

Do you want some company when out on a walk, or a nice warm cuddle everyday?? Bruce xxXxx

BOLT

 Breed  Sex  Age
 JRT x Parsons  Male  3 years
 History and Recommendations
Well hello there, my name's Bolt and I’m only 3 years old.

As you can see I’m extremely cute, if I may say so myself. I am looking for my forever new home; this will need to be with experienced dog owners, with children over the age of 15 years old.

I love being out and about; my favorite toy is a really good game of football in the garden.

I don’t really like traveling in the car, but I’m happy to walk everywhere instead.

I will need to be the only dog in the house so I can have one to one attention and also I’ll need to go to training classes to help me socialize with people as I’ve been known to be quite nervous with people approaching me on walks and I need to learn not to bark at bikes and joggers as this is not a behaviour I should be doing. I must admit I’m hard work at first but with the dedication and training I deserve I will soon be a loyal companion. Due to these issues I will need to stay on the lead at all times. I will not be allowed off lead.

Can you offer me a comfy spot in your home, or even my own football to play with?? Bolt xxXxx

My Ideal Home

  • WANTS TO BE THE ONLY DOG
  • AN ACTIVE HOME
  • CAT FREE HOME

 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 can be quite bossy 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, so show me food and I'll show you the love!

My Ideal Home

  • WOULD LIKE TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • CAT FREE HOME

PENNY

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Mastiff Cross  Female  6 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi everyone, my name is Penny. I’m a 6 year old Mastiff X and I’m looking for my forever home where I will receive the love and affection I deserve.

I’m a very loving and affectionate girl but can be a little clumsy sometimes (I think that’s what makes me so cute).

I am known also to be a big jumper so I will need to have very high fences in my new garden.

I came to HULA due to my previous owner moving overseas so was unable to keep me. I would benefit from going to training lessons just so I can learn how to be calm around lots of people and dogs. I do already know the basic commands like ‘sit’ and ‘down’.

I can be left on my own for 4-5 hours providing I’ve been well exercised and I can live with children over the age of 13 years old. I’m not a cat lover so would like to live in a cat free home.

Can you offer me my forever home? Love Penny xxxx

My Ideal Home

  • NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG
  • DOESN’T WANT TO LIVE WITH CATS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 13 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 4-5 HOURS PROVIDING SHE’S BEEN WELL EXCERCISED BEFORE SHE’S LEFT

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi everyone, my name is Milla and I’m looking for my forever home.

I am a very sweet girl and I love being out and about and keeping myself busy. I may be 10 years old, but I am still very active and love life.

I am currently on epilepsy treatment and having this investigated by the HULA vets as I do not have seizures and haven’t had one for a while, but if you want more information then please ask a member of staff. I hope this won’t put people off because the staff here all say I am an absolute gem, so this must be good mustn’t it?

I am an easy going girl and can live with cats and dogs. I am currently running around and playing with a group of dogs here and loving the time spent with them.

I do hope I find my new family soon as I really do deserve to be in my ‘forever’ home xxxxx

RUPERT

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Large crossbreed  Male  8 months
 History and Recommendations
Hi world,

My name is Rupert; I am a lively lad who will make you smile. I am looking for a lively active home where I will get lots of mental and physical stimulation as I need to be busy to keep me out of puppy antics.

I will need someone around most of the day to teach me to be left for longer and also get on top of my house training. I will also need training classes to be booked with a trainer before I leave HULA to ensure I get off on the right foot. I can be very over the top with dogs and have no manners and don’t know when to stop; I will need more socialising to ensure I understand right from wrong.

Sadly in my short 8 months I have had around 5 homes, I can’t say why as I have always tried my best to please but it never seemed to work out for me. I am really hoping that now I am at HULA my luck will change and I will be having my first birthday in my new ‘forever’ home!

So if you are ready to rumble and have some fun in your life come and give me a try!

My Ideal Home

  • SOMEONE AT HOME MOST OF THE DAY AS WILL NEED REMINDING OF HOUSE TRAINING, CAN BE LEFT 2-3 HRS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 8 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • WILL NEED TO ATTEND TRAINING CLASSES
  • COULD LIVE WITH A QUIET FEMALE DOG

CUDDLES

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Rottweiler  Male  7 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi there, my name is Cuddles and I’m 7 years young and I am a loving and friendly lad once I know you. I’m an active boy who enjoys being out and about on walks so would love a new home where I’m kept busy.

As I am so 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 I am a big dog to pull. I particularly pull towards vans and do need training in this area, when near them I try to jump in head first!

I can be left on my own for approximately 4-5 hours as long as I’ve been well exercised before I’m left.

Please don’t let my size or breed put you off me, I am a big teddy bear who just wants love and affection, the girls at HULA are very nice but I just want my forever home with my forever humans. I sometimes take a while to get to know people and do of course bark in the home as that is what I was bred to do.

Please pick me, I will love you forever xXx

My Ideal Home

  • AN ACTIVE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 15 YEARS OLD
  • WOULD LIKE TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • CAT AND SMALL ANIMAL FREE HOME

Possi-bull?

Are you thinking of adopting a rescue dog? If so please give consideration to the bullbreeds.

There are many good reasons for allowing one of these wonderful dogs into your life.

Click here to read just a few of them.



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
