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

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

I am a very lively friendly boy who is full of beans, I am quite nervous at first with new people but as soon as I know you I will love you forever. I will need training to help me with my socializing to build my confidence up around new people and I will need an experienced dog owner to help me with this.

I would like someone around most of the day but can be left for 3-4 hours if I have been exercised before I am left.

I will need lots of mental and physical stimulation to keep me busy but I am a gorgeous lad and with the right family and further training I will be a loyal loving companion.

Have you got room in your heart to love me? Can you offer me my forever home? Ciaran xxXxx

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

I am a very lively, friendly boy who is full of beans, I am strong on the lead so will need training to walk nicely.

I would like someone around most of the day but can be left for 3-4 hours if I am exercised before being left alone.

I have been mixed with dogs here and I was a little grumpy so I am looking for a new home where I will be the only dog in the household. I would also like to live in a cat free home.

Have you got room in your heart to love me? Can you offer me my forever home? Larry xxXxx

TREVOR

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Husky  Male  3 years
 History and Recommendations
My name’s Trevor and I’m a 3 year old Husky. I’m very lively and full of fun and am looking for an active home where I will get the love and exercise I deserve,

I came to HULA as a stray so the girls don’t have any previous history about me. Because of this and my lively ways I would need a home with children over the age of 12 years old.

I’m looking for a special home with a patient and experienced owner as Husky’s are pretty but you will need to read up on them. I will benefit by going to a training class to socialize with other dogs and to learn that I can walk calmly on the lead.

I can be left on my own for 2-3 hours as long as I’ve been well exercised before you leave me.

Can you offer me a place in your heart and a space in your home? Trevor xXx

My Ideal Home

  • CHILDREN OVER 12 YEARS
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 2-3 HOURS AS LONG AS I’M WELL EXERCISED
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOUSE

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

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Patterdale Terrier  Male  15 months
 History and Recommendations
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

Hi everyone, my name is Princess 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 heard of this dog sport called dog agility, I think I will be good at that :)

I know a few tricks already and I like playing with other dogs. However I would like to go training classes to help me learn some manners with other dogs as I can be a little bossy. I do also get a little excited with my toys and I haven’t learnt to share yet, but if you can teach me then I will learn.

Have you got room in your heart to love me? Can you offer me my forever home? Princess xxXxx

JACK

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Jack Russell  Male  6 years
 History and Recommendations
My name’s Jack and I am a lively little boy looking for my forever home.

I have got a grade 4 heart murmur, I can still enjoy my walks and runs but my new adopters will need to be aware of this. It isn’t causing me any problems now and it might not in the future, please don’t let this put you off me.

I have spent time in one of HULA’S quiet rooms to see if I was happy being left on my own, I loved it and caught up with my sleep and I was very clean, so I can be left 3-4 hours if I am exercised beforehand.

I’ve been mixed with other dogs while I’ve been at HULA and get on brilliantly with them all so I could live with a canine companion (providing we get on well together during our introductions).

Can you offer me a place in your heart and a space in your home? Jack xxxx

My Ideal Home

  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER 10 YEARS
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 3-4 HOURS AS LONG AS I’M WELL EXERCISED
  • I NEED A CAT FREE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH ANOTHER DOG PENDING INTROS

HARLEY

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffie Cross  Male  10 months
 History and Recommendations
My name’s Harley and I am a Staffie X, yes I know what you are about to say or think "oh I don’t want him; he is ONE of those staffies". This makes me sad as I am a fun loving, energetic chap with lots of love to give and a great sense of humour. I admit I am a little boisterous, I am only 10 months old remember and yes I do need to learn some manners.

I know my basic commands but will benefit from being taken to training classes as I am young and have lots to learn. I will need someone around most of the day as well as I spent quite a lot of time in the garden in my previous home so I may need reminding of house training.

I would love an active family as I need lots of walks and playtime and I can live with children 10 years and over so we can have lots of fun together. If you have a dog it would need to be older than me, sensible and well trained so I can learn doggie manners.

So if you are ready for fun, fun, fun why not ask about me - Harley!! xx

My Ideal Home

  • AN ACTIVE, ENERGECTIC HOME
  • TO BE TAKEN TO TRAINING CLASSES
  • SOMEONE AROUND DURING THE DAY - CAN BE LEFT 3 HOURS AT A TIME
  • MAY NEED REMINDING OF HOUSE TRAINING
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 10 YEARS OR OVER
  • CAN LIVE WITH OLDER CALM FEMALE DOGS, PENDING INTRODUCTIONS

Special Thanks

Thank you to Bridget Davey Photography for many of the superb photographs featured on the HULA website.




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
