Meet some of our dogs looking for new homes.

Photos and a brief description of each dog are shown below. Due to the constant coming and going of the dogs the photos may not always be as up to date. If you plan to make a long journey to see a specific dog it is advisable to call to make sure the dog is still with us and available.

KODIE

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Springer Spaniel  Male  5 years
 History and Recommendations
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

  • AN EXPERIENCED OWNER
  • I CAN BE LEFT 3-4 HOURS BUT WILL NEED TO BE WELL EXCERCISED BEFORE
  • I NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • CANNOT LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF LINKS WAY LUTON AND BRADWELL COMMON MK
  • TRAINING CLASSES NEED TO BE BOOKED

THEO

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Lakeland Cross  Male  1 year
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Theo is a Lakeland terrier through and through, and the Kennel Club describes the breed perfectly... “A cheerful little rascal, hardy and agile, he comes from England’s Lake District. Courageous, affectionate, tireless, lovable and naughty - all of these epithets fit him well”.

That about sums up Theo. He’s very prey driven and therefore should not share a home with other animals (cats or small animals) and needs to learn some more manners around dogs, so isn’t yet able to live with them either. Training classes are a must for him, he needs recall work and to learn more manners around other dogs and he will need to stay on lead due to some of his cheeky ways, and poor recall – afterall, tireless and naughty are breed traits! he’ll need lots of mental and physical stimulation so is looking for an active owner.

So if you are experienced and ready for a challenge maybe this loveable rascal could be the chap for you.

My Ideal Home

  • LOOKING FOR AN EXPERIENCED OWNER
  • CHILDREN 15 YEARS AND OVER
  • WILL NEED TO BE TAKEN TO TRAINING CLASS
  • CAT / SMALL ANIMAL FREE HOME
  • NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE 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
