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

Hello my name is Anita and I’m an Akita, and I am a loving and friendly girl. I’m an active girl 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.

I came to HULA from Friends of Akita who helps Akita’s in need like me. I was a stray so the HULA girls do not have any back ground history for me. I will need someone around most the day but can be left 1-2 hours if well exercised beforehand.

I sometimes shows dominant behaviour with dogs so I will need to be the only dog in the household.

Have you got a space in your home and heart for me?? Anita xxxxxx

Hello everyone my name is Milo and I am in need of my forever home.

QUEENIE

 History and Recommendations
Well hello there, my name's Queenie and I’m a 5 year old, Jack Russell Terrier.

I am deaf but this doesn’t stop me from doing anything. I do know a couple of hand signals for commands but would love to learn more.

As you can see I’m extremely cute and looking for my forever home. I’m not used to long walks so would like someone how understands that I will need short walks to begin with until I’m strong enough to go on longer walks.

I was never left in my previous home, but I have been tested in one of the quiet rooms here at HULA, when I first went in I did bark and scratch at the door but after a couple of minutes I did settle and just slept for a couple of hours, so I can be left for 2-3 hours if exercised beforehand.

I have been mixed here at HULA with other dogs, however I do like my toys too much and will tell a dog off if they go near my toys. But I will always give you my toy to throw for me.

Can you offer me a comfy spot in your home, or even my own tennis balls to play with??

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
