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

JIMBO

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Labrador Cross  Male  6 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi everyone, my name is Jimbo and I am looking for my new forever home.

I am a big loveable rogue who enjoys nothing more than a big cuddle and lots of fuss. I love travelling in the car and exploring new places.

I came into HULA through no fault of my own. I have been living in a loving home for the past 3 years so I am finding kennel life a little stressful. The staff have been looking after me well though and I love my daily walks and playtime. Ideally my new home would be able to provide lots of lovely walks to keep me occupied and lots of cuddles to keep me loved.

I would prefer to be the only dog in the home as sometimes I can be a little grumbly towards other dogs but hopefully my new owners would be able to teach me some manners around new dogs and help me become more sociable around them.

My Ideal Home

  • I NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME
  • CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER 10 YEARS OLD
  • I CAN BE LEFT FOR 4-5 HOURS BUT WILL NEED TO BE WELL EXERCISED BEFOREHAND
  • CANNOT LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF SUNDERLAND PLACE, SHORTSTOWN, BEDFORD

SASHA

 Breed  Sex  Age
 SBT Cross  Female  9 years
 History and Recommendations
Hello my name is Sasha I am a lively 9 year old girl who is seeking her forever home.

I am a Staffordshire Bull Terrier X, but PLEASE don’t let that put you off!! I am a very friendly girl who is happy to fly the flag for all bull breeds in need of rescuing.

I am full of life with plenty of love to give. I love playing with toys and will generally greet you with a toy when I get excited and I can get a bit wriggly.

I have been mixed with several dogs whilst at HULA and I can get quite jealous and try to dominate them so I would prefer a loving home all to myself.

I have been lucky enough to spend a couple of nights with a member of staff who said I was absolutely a pleasure to look after. I am house trained, good in the car and love the company of humans and love to have lots of attention and cuddles.

I have had a few lumps and bumps removed by the vet but I am now on the mend and ready to become someone’s special friend. 

Have you got a space in your home and a space in your heart for Sasha? xxXxx

My Ideal Home

  • Cannot live with other dogs or cats
  • Can live with children 7 years and over
  • Can be left for 4-5 hours providing I have been well exercised beforehand

POPPY

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi everyone, my name is Poppy 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.

Photo of Poppy the dog
I have had to have extensice training due to my over the top mouthing behaviour, I am a lot better now but my new owners will need to carry on with my training so I don’t slip back in to my cheeky ways.

I do like playing with other dogs, but I think I play a little over the top and I get told off by the other dogs. But training will help me become calmer around them and not be so excited when I see them. Sadly I have spent most of my life in kennels with nowhere to call my own home and I just can’t wait for that time when someone picks me! I will need training, I will need time but blimey I will give you so much love in return!!

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

THEO

Photo of Theo the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Lakeland Cross  Male  1 year
 History and Recommendations
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

My ideal home would preferably be full of experienced owners who can teach me new tricks as you are never too old!!

Have you got the room in your heart and the room in your home? If you do I promise to give you lots of love xxXxx

 Jack Russell  Male  14 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Please meet Dave, he is Jack Russell terrier and he is 14 years young. Please don’t let his age put you off as he is a very lively boy and you will see he does not act or look 14 at all!

He is a very happy little man, who is full of love! He loves to follow you around and see what you are doing, if he isn’t doing that you will find him cuddled up on the sofa getting his beauty sleep.

He has been mixed here at HULA with other dogs and he was fine and not bothered by them at all, so he can live with a female dog in his new home, pending introductions.

One of the staff members took Dave to their home for a couple of nights, she said he was absolutely lovely and affectionate. He tells you when he needs to go to the toilet and was not destructive with any of the furniture in her home. He did love a cuddle on the sofa!

He is good at being left and is clean in the home so he can be left for 4-5 hours if well excersied beforehand.

Have you got a space in your home and a space in your heart for Dave? xxXxx

HOLLY

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Well hello there, my name's Holly, I am 10 years young, but don’t let that put you off, as they say “the old girls still got a lot of life in her yet”!

I came into Hula as my owners were no longer able to look after me the way they should, due to this the staff do not have any background information on me, however, after a long assessment they have got to know me and my ways!

I can be a little nervous at first, however once I know you and gain my confidence I do enjoy a good fuss. I would benefit from training classes, as despite my age I can get a little carried away around other dogs and animals. I have heard the staff say I’m a typical terrier, and into everything.

Photo of Holly the dog

I love been out and exploring so would like an active home, where I am kept mentally and physically stimulated. I do enjoy my toys however I would much prefer some love and fuss.

I do need an experienced owner as I have got some behaviors that will need work on and due to my background I may need reminding of house training. I need someone who will understand how I tick and work with me understanding my ways and needs.

Can you offer me a comfy spot in your home, or even my spot on the sofa…. Holly xxXxx

CANA

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi everyone, my name is Cana 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 socialising to build my confidence up around new people and I will need an experienced dog owner to help me with this. I will also need training when it comes to being left and this will need to be taken seriously as I can howl at night and during the day if left for long periods so please consider this when you think about giving me a home.

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. I will need my adopters to research my breed, although I am handsome and stunning I need someone who will understand me and the work I was originally bred to do.

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

RUBY

Photo of Ruby the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 GSD X Akita  Female  6 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Meet Ruby, Ruby has been sadly returned to HULA as her adopters schedules changed and she was not able to get the exercise needed. This meant Ruby was becoming anxious and so her adopters decided she would be happier finding a home where they had more time to give to Ruby and her training.

Ruby is a real sweetheart but does take time to get to know you, her adopters need to be experienced so they can work with Ruby and understand her socializing needs. She will need training classes booked in her new home and also lots of exercise.

If you have time and patience to get to know this lady and understand her needs fully you will soon get to know the Ruby we know, the funny, clever and cheeky lady willing to please you once you are her ‘forever friend’ XXXXXXXXX

My Ideal Home

  • LOOKING FOR AN EXPERIENCED OWNER
  • CAN LIVE WITH A QUIET MALE DOG
  • WILL WANT TO BE TAKEN TO TRAINING CLASSES
  • CANNOT LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF HANSLOPE
  • NEEDS LOTS OF PLAYTIME AND ADOPTERS WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR

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
