Hello there, my name is Ruby.

Can you help me find my forever home?

I am looking for someone who I can share all my love with, someone who would be happy to cuddle up and watch TV with, and go on adventures with.

I can be a little shy when meeting new people, but once I get to know you I will love you forever. All the staff and volunteers love me, and say i give great cuddles. But I wish I had my own Mum and Dad I can cuddle, I just can’t wait to find them.

I can live with male dogs, and can live with cats too. I don’t like children screaming so looking to live with children over 10 years who are nice and calm.

If you would like to know more about me, please ask one of my HULA friends XxxX

My Ideal Home

  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 10 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAN LIVE WITH A QUIET MALE DOG
  • CAN LIVE WITH CATS WHO HAVE LIVED WITH DOGS BEFORE
  • SOMEONE WHO WON’T JUDGE HER BY HER BREED, AND LOVES HER FOR WHO SHE IS
  • CANNOT LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF DUNSTABLE

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

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.

Photo of Barry the dog
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

My Ideal Home

  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 12 YEARS AND OVER
  • NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • CAN BE LEFT 4-5 HOURS PROVIDING I HAVE BEEN WELL EXERCISED BEFORE

Please meet Lily, Lily is a typical young puppy – all legs no brain :)

Lily is a sweet girl, and loves being with people. She is very outgoing and full of energy. She is looking for someone who can match her energy levels and is happy to go on adventures with her.

Lily does need to attend training classes, as she is young but very willing to learn. She does lack in manners, and does needs more training on the lead, around other dogs and general everyday life manners.

Lily is a fun active girl, and would make someone very happy. She just need to learn some manners and she will be a super star.

If you would like to know more about Lily, please ask one of the HULA Team XxxX

  • CAN LIVE WITH DOGS WHO ARE HAPPY TO SHOW HER SOME MANNERS

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
