 History and Recommendations
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 would like to be the only dog in the home, but can walk with doggie friends.



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

BOLT

 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. I sometimes enjoy allowing my inner child out and love to play on the children’s slides at the park! What?! It’s good fun!

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.

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

BRUCE

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffie Cross  Male  5 years
 History and Recommendations
Pleased to meet you, my name is Bruce and I am a very sweet boy who loves a good fuss and a cuddle.

I was found in a garden where I had spent the first four years of 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. It is also believed I was previously up for sale on a website for £1.00 :( My rescue and training were organised by the charity Safe and Sound.

I must attend training classes in my new home as I need more basic training and also socializing with dogs.

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 also enjoy keeping myself busy so I really like Kong activity feeding toys. I give my human friends a break while I am playing with my feeding toy :)

After a nice walk I do 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 up in a ball and sleep away.

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

My Ideal Home

  • AN ACTIVE AND EXPERIENCED HOME
  • A CAT FREE HOME
  • I CAN LIVE WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 12 YEARS OLD
  • I CAN BE LEFT FOR 3-4 HOURS PROVIDING I’VE BEEN WELL EXERCISED

CUDDLES

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Rottweiler  Male  7 years
 History and Recommendations
Hi there, my name is Cuddles. I’m 7 years young and I am a loving and friendly lad. 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 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.

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
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR APPROXIMATELY 4-5 HOURS

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

I am reserved pending introductions

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

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi there my name is Bazil and I am an adorable lad. Please doesn’t let my size put you off; I am a friendly giant who loves affection and loves people. I will make a real loving and loyal companion and will make you smile.

I used to live with another dog in my previous home and I have mixed well with dogs here at HULA, I sometimes get a bit boisterous off lead with them but can live with other dogs pending introductions.

I love puddles, water and my true favorite is going in the sea!!

I would need someone to be with me most of the day, as I do get distressed with being left and do howl and whine but I can be left for up to 2-3 hours. With training to teach me that it's ok to be left along this could be increased.

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

My Ideal Home

  • CHILDREN OVER 7 YEARS
  • CAN BE LEFT FOR 2-3 HOURS AND WILL NEED ADDITIONAL TRAINING FOR THIS TO BE ABLE TO BE LEFT LONGER
  • CAT FREE HOME

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
