KIA

 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

 Patterdale Terrier  Male  15 months
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

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

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

MOLLY

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Border Collie  Female  7 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi everyone, my name is Molly and I’m looking for my forever home.

Sadly my owner passed away so I don’t have much background history. However my HULA carers have said that I am an extremely sweet and affectionate young lady.

As you can imagine, being a Border collie, I am extremely clever so will need mental and physical stimulation. I would love to be taken to training classes so I can learn new things and would even like to try a doggy sport like agility.

I can be nervous so I’m looking for an understanding family who will introduce me to new people and situations slowly using positive training and treats.

I can be left on my own for 3-4 hours providing I’ve been well exercised beforehand and I can live with children over the age of 12 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? All my kisses, Molly xXxXx

My Ideal Home

  • WOULD LIKE TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • DOESN’T WANT TO LIVE WITH CATS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN AGED 12 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR TO 3-4 HOURS PROVIDING SHE’S BEEN WELL EXCERCISED BEFORE SHE’S LEFT

Special Thanks

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.
