LADY TUMBLE

Photo of Lady Tumble the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Large Bulldog Cross  Female  2 years
 History and Recommendations
Tumble is a large Bulldog X who is as soft a marshmallow!

Tumble was s stray so we have no background information her but what we can tell you is that at some point this poor dog had a rough life! Tumble was extremely nervous when she was first in kennels and the rescue and staff worked hard to build up her confidence, she then came to HULA and what a star this dog is, unless there is fox poo around, then she is no longer a white princess!!!

Tumble will take a little while to get to know you and new people once home so this will have to be done slowly and with lots of treats.

Tumble will need training classes booked with her new adopter to ensure she gets to socialize with people and other dogs, she is great with dogs but sometimes a little over the top and playful. She is also very strong on the lead.

So if you are ready to rumble then come and see Lady Tumble

RUBY

Photo of Ruby the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Crossbreed  Female  2 years
 History and Recommendations
Hello, my name is Ruby and I’m 2 years old. I’m a lovely girl, however I can be nervous of you at first, so I need an owner who understands this and gives me the time and patience I need. Once I know you I am a very loving girl, who is always eager to please. I am learning the lead isn’t a toy and this is coming along well too.

I came into HULA as a stray so the girls don’t have any background information on me; however they have said that once I come out of my shell I am lovely.

I do need to be the only dog in the home as I can be nervous at times and do get carried away. Due to this I will need to continue to go to training classes, to help me build up my confidence and manners around other dogs.

My past is unknown but the staff here believe Ruby has not been treated kindly by people she has lived with and with help from another rescue and HULA she really has grown in confidence.

Do you have a spare seat on the sofa, or a ball that needs throwing? xxxXxxx

GEORGE

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross  Male  2 years
 History and Recommendations
Well hello there, my name's George and I’m 4 years old.

I am a very loving and friendly lad, who just loves having fuss and attention, well who wouldn’t just look and my cuteness!

I love being out and about and therefore need an active home where I will be kept occupied. I do love my toys and can keep myself amused with them however what’s better than having someone there to play with me.

I do need to be the only dog in the home as I love having all the attention I can get. I would benefit from training classes where I can work on my socializing skills as I can get carried away with excitement.

The staff here always say that I am one of their favorites and I am often known as “Georgie porgy” that being said I do love my food, but the girls are ensuring that I keep in shape, so I would need someone to ensure they carry on with this. This is to also help with my leg that I recently had an op on for a luxating patella. It’s not causing me any problems and I don’t need any medication for it, however as I get older I could get arthritis in it.

Can you offer me a comfy spot in your home, or even my own football to play with?? George xxXxx

MARVIN

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffordshire Bull Terrier (retired)  Male  8 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi there guys, my name is Marvin or Marv for short. I am an older chap coming in at around 8 years old bless me, so really the staff think I should be in a settled home and not looking for a new one!

I am still an active lad who is seeking a home where I can get daily walks and also lots of love. The staff have no background info on me as sadly I was found straying but they have said although I am a little naughty with my blankets in the kennel in a quiet room I am a lot calmer and settled.

Marvin will walk around with other dogs but he is not keen when they get into his space, as we don’t have background we are not sure if he has had a bad history relating to other dogs scaring him in the past.

Marvin is desperately looking for a new permanent family who will love him and his little ways and give him a loving quiet retirement home.

If you are ready for a loving friend why not ask the staff about Marvin. XxXxXx

KIA

 Boxer X  Female  5 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

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 am able to be left most of the day as long as I am well exercised and have things to do while you are out.

I can be quite bossy around other dogs at times but I could live with a male dog pending introductions.

There’s nothing I love more than my food, so show me food and I’ll show you the love! Have you got room in your heart to love me? Can you offer me my forever home? Kia xxXxx

BRUCE

Photo of Bruce the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffie Cross  Male  5 years
 History and Recommendations
Pleased to meet you, my name is Bruce.

I am a very sweet boy who loves a good fuss and a cuddle, I was found in a garden where I spend the first four years of his my life. Living all alone in a back yard – I was not taken out during that time and missed out on so many important life lessons. I did have a lot of baggage on arrival at the training kennel where I required a lot of retraining before I could safely leave them to come to HULA for re-homing. We also believe I was trying to be sold on a website for £1.00. This training and my rescue was carried out by Safe and Sound.

I must attend training classes in my new home as I need basic training and also socializing with other dogs as they can worry me a litte but I cold live with a quiet female intros depending.

I really enjoy the outdoor world and love going on long walks. I enjoy having loads of cuddles and playing with lots of toys. I enjoy keeping myself busy and I really like Kong and activity feeding toys. These help to give my human friends a break while I am playing.

After a nice walk I like to relax and chill out, so I can be left on my own for up to 3-4 hours. I do find it hard when you initially leave me but as soon as you're gone I will curl in a ball and sleep away.

Do you want some company when out on a walk, or a nice warm cuddle everyday?? Bruce xxXxx

PRINCE

Photo of Prince the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffie Cross  Male  6 years
 History and Recommendations
Prince is a well-mannered lad who is looking for an active home as he does love a fuss, but would be quite happy to relax and chill.

Prince does need his owners to be experienced, but if you are a first time dog owner, you will need to have training classes booked. Prince is a strong boy so would need to be walked on a harness to help with his strength, so that he doesn’t pull on his collar.

Here’s what Prince has to say for himself: “Hello there, my name is Prince and I am ready to find my new forever home. I enjoy interacting with people and love having a fuss. I am a real sweet boy who enjoys a play too. I don’t always want to give up my toys but will swap them for new ones or food. I am good with other dogs and enjoy playing but can get a little over excited, so this would depend on intros. I would be happy to live with a female dog for companionship. I can be left alone for 4-5 hours at a time if well exercised, and providing I have things to do, otherwise I get bored.”

“Could you offer me the love and attention that I deserve?” Prince xxx

BOLT

Photo of Bolt the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 JRT x Parsons  Male  3 years
 History and Recommendations
Well hello there, my name's Bolt and I’m only 3 years old.

As you can see I’m extremely cute, if I may say so myself. I am looking for my forever new home; this will need to be with experienced dog owners, with children over the age of 15 years old.

I love being out and about; my favorite toy is a really good game of football in the garden.

I don’t really like traveling in the car, but I’m happy to walk everywhere instead.

I will need to be the only dog in the house so I can have one to one attention and also I’ll need to go to training classes to help me socialize with people as I’ve been known to be quite nervous with people approaching me on walks and I need to learn not to bark at bikes and joggers as this is not a behaviour I should be doing. I must admit I’m hard work at first but with the dedication and training I deserve I will soon be a loyal companion. Due to these issues I will need to stay on the lead at all times. I will not be allowed off lead.

Can you offer me a comfy spot in your home, or even my own football to play with?? Bolt xxXxx

RUPERT

Photo of Rupert the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Large crossbreed  Male  8 months
 History and Recommendations
Hi world,

My name is Rupert; I am a lively lad who will make you smile. I am looking for a lively active home where I will get lots of mental and physical stimulation as I need to be busy to keep me out of puppy antics.

I will need someone around most of the day to teach me to be left for longer and also get on top of my house training. I will also need training classes to be booked with a trainer before I leave HULA to ensure I get off on the right foot. I can be very over the top with dogs and have no manners and don’t know when to stop; I will need more socialising to ensure I understand right from wrong.

Sadly in my short 8 months I have had around 5 homes, I can’t say why as I have always tried my best to please but it never seemed to work out for me. I am really hoping that now I am at HULA my luck will change and I will be having my first birthday in my new ‘forever’ home!

So if you are ready to rumble and have some fun in your life come and give me a try!

My Ideal Home

  • SOMEONE AT HOME MOST OF THE DAY AS WILL NEED REMINDING OF HOUSE TRAINING, CAN BE LEFT 2-3 HRS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 12 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • WILL NEED TO ATTEND TRAINING CLASSES
  • COULD LIVE WITH A QUIET FEMALE DOG

CUDDLES

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Rottweiler  Male  7 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi there, my name is Cuddles and I’m 7 years young and I am a loving and friendly lad once I know you. I’m an active boy who enjoys being out and about on walks so would love a new home where I’m kept busy.

As I am so 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 I am a big dog to pull. I particularly pull towards vans and do need training in this area, when near them I try to jump in head first!

I can be left on my own for approximately 4-5 hours as long as I’ve been well exercised before I’m left.

Please don’t let my size or breed put you off me, I am a big teddy bear who just wants love and affection, the girls at HULA are very nice but I just want my forever home with my forever humans. I sometimes take a while to get to know people and do of course bark in the home as that is what I was bred to do.

Please pick me, I will love you forever xXx

My Ideal Home

  • AN ACTIVE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 15 YEARS OLD
  • WOULD LIKE TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • CAT AND SMALL ANIMAL FREE HOME

I am reserved pending introductions

Hello there my name is Blue, I am 6 years old, and I’m a Staffordshire bull terrier, a lot of you may think I don’t want one of “those” breeds, but I am a very sweet, loving boy who just wants love and affection from anyone I meet.

I came in to HULA sadly as my previous owner was poorly and could no longer look after me, I’m hoping I won’t be here long and my new family will fall in love with me.

I have been mixed here at HULA with dogs and I was very polite and good with them, so I can live with other dogs in my new home pending introductions. I spent time in a quiet room to see what I was like being left I was very settled and clean so I can be left 4-5 hours as long as I have been exercised beforehand .

Have you got spare in your home and space in your heart for me? Love Blue xxXxx

  • LOVES EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING

NELLIE

Photo of Nellie the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Collie  Female  1 year
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

We’re pleased to introduce you to Nellie, a 1 year old Border collie. She has recently come to HULA as her elderly owner was sadly very poorly and therefore unable to look after Nellie and give her the exercise and care he knew she needed.

Nellie is a very very active girl and looking for an energetic home. She will need to go to training classes (these will need to be booked before leaving HULA) as she’s a very clever girl and so will need to be kept busy. These classes can also help with her socialization with other dogs, as whilst she can walk with them nicely on a lead, she can get very bossy with them, so needs further work in this area and cannot live with another dog.

Her future family will need to be experienced dog owners, ideally with the collie breed, or a similarly active breed. They will need to be prepared to put in lots of time walking her as she’s very energetic, and they will need to understand she may need (as all our dogs may) reminding of house training when she first gets home.

She’s a very friendly lady and has a lot of love to give. We believe her future family will have a lot of fun with her, getting to know her and with the right training and patience, watch her blossom into a fantastically clever dog with loads of character!

  • LOOKING FOR AN EXPERIENCED OWNER
  • CAN BE LEFT 2-3 HOURS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 12 YEARS AND OVER

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
