LEYLA

 Breed  Sex  Age
 SBT  Female  1 year
 History and Recommendations
Hi there, I’m Leyla.

I was brought into HULA from another rescue called Jacobs Pound, I was found as a stray.

Although the staff don’t have any background history on me, they do know that I’m a sweet girl who loves being out and about.

Unfortunately no-one has taught me any manners, so I thought it was ok to jump up at people and pull them to where I want to go. I have leatnt a lot here, and of course have learnt it’s not ok to get my own way all the time. The staff say I have been doing so well with my training, but I still need to lean more, I can’t wait!

I’ve had an unlucky start to my life, but have heard that it can only get better. I even heard that I can live in a “house” which I have never lived before. It would be great to be able to see one, and even live in one, how amazing would that be!!!

I am not asking for much, just someone who will love me and in return I will give you all the love that I have XxxxX

My Ideal Home

  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 12 YEARS AND OVER
  • TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOUSEHOLD
  • TO BE IN A CAT FREE HOME
  • I WILL NEED SOMEONE AROUND FOR MOST OF THE DAY

I am reserved pending introductions

Hello there my name is Danny,

Please don’t be put off by my age, as I am still very young at heart.

All my friends here at HULA love me being around, as I just love to entertain and make people smile.

I do sadly suffer with arthritis on my spine, but I am now on pain relief and I’m feeling great. Even though I would love to walk all day, I do have to be restricted on how far I can go. But I am still active and would love to keep my mind going.

I love tennis balls or squeaky toys - it would make my day to have squeaky tennis ball!

I really enjoy being around people, but I am more than happy to be left for 3-4 hours. I do sometimes get a little bored, but I’m very good at entertaining myself with toys that are provided for me.

If you want to know more about me, please speak to someone at reception XxxX

BOBBY BISCUIT

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Poodle Cross  Male  1 year
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Please meet Bobby Biscuit,

Bobby Biscuit is a big character and full of life. He loves being around people and being the centre of attention.

Bobby Biscuit is like an over-grown puppy, and does get very bouncy when he gets excited. He will benefit going training classes, as he does need to learn some manners on the lead, as well as every day manners. He also needs to learn some manners around other dogs, as he can get a little over excited. Some dogs might not like this.

Bobby Biscuit can live with a female dogs as long as the female dog is happy to help him learn to be calmer with meeting new dogs. He can be left for 3-4 hours, but he will need to be well exercised beforehand, and have toys to play when he gets bored.

Bobby Biscuit can live with children 10 years and over, but will need to make sure they will help him keep all his paws on the floor and not let him jump up.

Bobby Biscuit is a sweet boy, and would make someone very happy XxxX

PIXIE

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi there, I’m Pixie.

I am looking for my forever home, where I can go out on lots of adventures and explore new places.

I just LOVE people, ok I do get a little excited and I will jump up at you. But I just want to make sure I can give you a kiss hello.

I am looking to be the only dog in the home, as I do get a little excited and a little jealous. Well I want to make sure I get all the cuddles and fuss.

I will benefit going to training classes, as I would like to know how to control my excitement around people and dogs. Also I do lack in daily manners, so I guess I can be shown how to behave.

Can you give me a new home? xxxxx

BARRY aka Bazza

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffordshire Bull Terrier  Male  7 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi there guys, my name is Barry AKA Bazza. I certainly don’t look my age but I am only 7 years old, so I still have a lot of spring in my step!

I am still an active lad who is seeking a home where I can get daily walks and also lots of love. I was brought to HULA from “Jacobs Pound” as I had been straying, but the last time was unclaimed and now I have ended up looking for a new family and so here I am.

Barry is walked with dogs, but doesn’t like them getting too close to him. Barry will need to go to training classes as he does need socializing around other dogs.

Barry is desperately looking for a new permanent and experienced family who will love him and his little ways and give him a loving forever home.

If you are ready for a loving friend why not ask the staff about Barry AKA Bazza. XxXx

KODIE

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi there my name is Kodie. The staff here say that I am a lovely boy but I am quite nervous at times, however once I get to know you I will love you forever.

As I can be quite nervous I need a quiet home where there won’t be a lot of people going in and out. I do need an experienced owner who is able to give me the love and time that I need to settle in.

I really am looking for a dedicated owner as I will need lifelong training and will always be wary of strangers.

I love being out, playing with toys and keeping myself busy, so I will need an active home where I will get the physical and mental stimulation to keep me going. The staff have said that I may be good with agility or flyball activities.

Although I will need lots of extra training and time I have been told I deserve this and hope that someone can take the time to find out my needs, remember though, just because I am cute doesn’t mean I am don’t need lots of training!!

My Ideal Home

  • ADULT ONLY HOME
  • AN EXPERIENCED OWNER
  • I CAN BE LEFT 3-4 HOURS BUT WILL NEED TO BE WELL EXCERCISED BEFORE

QUEENIE

 Breed  Sex  Age
 American Bull Dog  Female  3 Years old
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hello, I would like to introduce you to Queenie. Queenie is a sweet girl and full of character, who loves nothing more than a cuddle and a comfy bed to chill out on. She can be a little shy when meeting new people, but once she gets to know you she is a very loving girl.

Queenie is very nervous of younger adults, so is looking to be living with adults only.

Queenie is great with other dogs, so can live with a male dog.

Queenie was brought into HULA via a vet, and she had a condition called Cherry eye. She has had it operated on already and has been on treatment. Her eyes have cleared up now, but she may need to go on eye drops from time to time whenever her eyes flare up again.

Queenie will need to go to training classes as this will help her with her socializing around new people. We feel this will provide her an ideal foundation for in the future. Queenie is so happy to please that she will do anything to make you happy (or for a bit of food too).

Can you give Queenie a loving home? XxxxX

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
