HOLLY

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Border Collie  Female  5 years
 History and Recommendations
Hello there, my name’s Holly.

I am a lovely 5 year old Border Collie. I’m a loving girl who loves fuss, cuddles and a good old belly rub, who can resist one of those?! I can be a little nervous of new people so I need to live with experienced owners who will understand this although once I know you I will be yours forever.

I am better suited to a home with older children, as I do have collie traits. I’m also not keen on people being around me when I’m eating, so I’ll need to be left alone to eat in peace.

I have lived with another dog previously however, we didn’t always get along, and I love to have all the attention on me! I need an active home that will keep me physically and mentally stimulated but a home that’s not too busy as I am nervous during some situations.

I love my toys particularly tennis balls however I can be quite lazy and will only bring them half way back to you!

My Ideal Home

  • WOULD NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • DOESN’T WANT TO LIVE WITH CATS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 15 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR A MAXIMUM OF 4 HOURS
  • CANNOT LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF WOUGHTON ON THE GREEN

ROCKO

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Crossbreed  Male  1.5 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Pleased to meet you, my name is Rocko.

I am a very happy young man, but I can be very nervous of people and certain situations. I can be particularly nervous of men. Once I’ve gotten to know you though, I can be very affectionate.

I would benefit from going to training classes as I need further socializing around people and also other dogs. I can be terribly playful around other dogs as I do get excited. Apparently I need to learn some manners! The cheek of people! If I am to live with a dog, the dog will need to be quite tolerant of this, and will need to be able to help show me some manners!

I have lived with cats in the past, and here at HULA I was very good with one, so as long as the cat in the home is used to dogs, then I can live with them and I can live with children 12 years and over.

I’m not looking for a busy household as due to my nerves, I wouldn’t like there to be lots of hustle and bustle and new people coming and going.

I do have a grade 2 heart murmur and whilst this causes me no problems at present, my adopters will need to look into this and how it affects my care. The team at HULA can chat to you about this too.

I’m a sweet, affectionate lad who needs understanding and experienced owners… Could this be you?

My Ideal Home

  • AN ACTIVE AND EXPERIENCED HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH A DOG FRIENDLY CAT
  • CAN LIVE WITH A DOG (PENDING INTROS)
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 2-3 HOURS PROVIDING I’VE BEEN WELL EXERCISED
  • CANNOT LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF KINGSTHORPE, NORTHAMPTON

BOLT

 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

My Ideal Home

  • WANTS TO BE THE ONLY DOG
  • AN ACTIVE HOME
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 15 YEARS OLD AND OVER
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 2-3 HOURS PROVIDING I’VE BEEN WELL EXERCISED

KIA

 Breed  Sex  Age
 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

PENNY

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Mastiff Cross  Female  6 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi everyone, my name is Penny. I’m a 6 year old Mastiff X and I’m looking for my forever home where I will receive the love and affection I deserve.

I’m a very loving and affectionate girl but can be a little clumsy sometimes (I think that’s what makes me so cute).

I am known also to be a big jumper so I will need to have very high fences in my new garden.

I came to HULA due to my previous owner moving overseas so was unable to keep me. I would benefit from going to training lessons just so I can learn how to be calm around lots of people and dogs. I do already know the basic commands like ‘sit’ and ‘down’.

I can be left on my own for 4-5 hours providing I’ve been well exercised and I can live with children over the age of 13 years old. I’m not a cat lover so would like to live in a cat free home.

Can you offer me my forever home? Love Penny xxxx

My Ideal Home

  • NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG
  • DOESN’T WANT TO LIVE WITH CATS
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN 13 YEARS AND OVER
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 4-5 HOURS PROVIDING SHE’S BEEN WELL EXCERCISED BEFORE SHE’S LEFT

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.
