 Jack Russell Terrier Cross  Male  10 months
 History and Recommendations
Hi everyone, my name is Joey and I’m a 10 month old Jack Russell cross.

I am an energetic lad, who is looking for a very active family, who will give me the exercise and fun life I need.

I’m a very loving and affectionate boy who just wants love and someone to play ball with. I know my basic commands but feel like I would love to go to training classes; 1. because I love learning and 2. I get to play with other dogs!

I am good with other dogs so can live with other dogs in my new forever home.

I can be left on my own for 3-4 hours providing I’ve been well exercised and I can live with children over the age of 7 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 Joey Boy xxxx

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi everyone, my name is Kent and I’m looking for my forever home. I am 8 months old and I know my basic training but will love to go to training as I am a very quick learner and do enjoy learning.

I am a little boisterous and strong on lead but this is where training classes will make me a perfect doggy.

I would like my new owners to be at home most of the day to help me settle into my new life. I can be left for up to 2 -3 hours, but once I have settled into my new environment and routine I maybe ok to be left longer.

I do get on well with other dogs, but I can’t help myself and just want to jump all over them, so I can live with another dog in my home but will need to live with a dog that has already lived with another dog so that they can teach me some manners about playing nicely.

I do like to be kept busy so will need mental and physical stimulation as I am really still a puppy.

So if you are ready for a loving man in your life then please get yourself here to see me :0)

Hi there,

My name is Erin and I am 9 years young, please don’t let my age put you off as I have a lot of life still in me yet.

I am a cheeky little lady but well behaved also just depends on the day :) I was a little nervous over the first few days here but that is understandable. I really am a sweet and affectionate lady once I know you.

I enjoy my walks and do love a game of fetch.

I would like to be the only dog in the house so I can have 100% loves all for myself. I am house trained so can be left for 4-5 hours if exercised beforehand.

So have you got a space on your sofa and lots of love to give?

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi there my name is Bazil and I am an adorable lad so please don’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. I'll need to be taught with training that it’s ok to be left a while and then could be longer!

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

BLAZE

 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hi everyone, my name is Blaze and I’m looking for my forever home. I came to HULA as I was running around Salford Road with another dog called Bumble Bee, so I have no background information; however my HULA carers have said that I am a very sweet and affectionate young lad.

I would like my new owners to be at home most of the day, to help me settle into my new life, but I can be left up to 3-4 hours.

I do get on well with other dogs, but I can’t help myself and just want to jump all other them. I guess I do need a little training and go to doggie school. I love treats so would do anything for a little treat. I am a little nervous at first but as soon as I get to know you I will love you forever and have a lot of hugs to give.

I can live with dogs as long as my new friend is happy to guide me to play nicely.

I do like to be kept busy so will need mental and physical stimulation.

Blaze's Ideal Home

  • Can live with female dogs (pending introductions)
  • Doesn't want to live with cats
  • Can live with children 10 years and over
  • Enjoys cuddles and snuggles

LOLA

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Labrador cross Jack Russell Terrier  Female  1 year
 History and Recommendations
My name’s Lola and I’m a friendly and excited lady who loves to play!

I am very boisterous, and whilst I know some basic training I find it hard to sit still! I will need weekly dog training classes to help me calm down and to help with some situations in which I can get nervous. I will also need plenty of exercise and will need to live with someone who has previously owned a dog.

I love to chase and be chased by other dogs so I’d be happy living with another dog, but I’d need to meet them first at HULA to make sure we got on before the team would let me go home.

I love puddles, especially muddy ones! I also love toys, but have been known to get quite protective over my toys and so I won’t be able to live with children under 15 years old.

I would need someone to be with me most of the day. I can be left up to 1 – 2 hours but might cry and scratch at the door, so I’ll need to be taught with training that it’s ok to be left a while!

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

Lola's Ideal Home

  • An experienced owner - I'm not suitable for first time dog owners
  • Doesn't want to live with cats
  • Could live with another dog
  • Can live with children 15 years and over
  • Can be left for 1-2 hours and will need additional training for this

PATCH

Photo of Patch the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Crossbreed  Male  1 year
 History and Recommendations
Hello, my name is Patch and I am 1 year old. I am a young lad who needs to find a home where they will take me to training classes and also keep me well socialised. I can be very nervous of new situations and therefore need lots of socializing and training.

I am looking for an active home as I can be very lively and will need lots of exercise and things to occupy my mind.

I am not used to being left long hours and will need someone around most of my day to slowly build my confidence when you are out and about, to begin with I could be left 2-3 hours. I also need reminding of housetraining as I can often have accidents, but I am only a baby.

I know I can be nervous at times but you have to remember that being a young dog when settled I will be very lively and still need to be taught my basic manners. My adopters will have to remember that I am a puppy and do have puppy traits.

Patch's Ideal Home

  • DUE TO BEING A LITTLE NERVOUS, CHILDREN IN THE HOME WOULD NEED TO BE OVER 15 YEARS OLD
  • SOMEONE AROUND FOR MOST OF THE DAY TO BEGIN WITH
  • CAT FREE HOME
  • COULD LIVE WITH OR WITHOUR ANOTHER DOG

JOE

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffordshire Bull Terrier  Male  6 years
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

Hello everybody, my name’s Joe and I’m a neutered 6 year old Staffie and I’m looking for my forever home.

I arrived at HULA from a charity that helps dogs like me get out of the dog pound and find a forever home, which means I have no background history. However my carers at HULA say I’ve been an absolute sweetheart who loves to be around people.

I have been mixed with other dogs while I’ve been at HULA and can live with another female dog.

I do know my basic commands, however I may need a gentle reminder of these and also housetraining.

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

Can you offer me my forever home?

Joe's Poem

Oh no he's a staffie and look he is six,
You don't want an old one they can't learn new tricks,
His colour is boring and breed is bad,
We will pass on that one, enough time he has had.

Yes I am a staffie friendly and fun,
I can learn new tricks as well as know some,
My black hair shines and is as soft as can be,
And being a staffie means nothing to me!

My name is Joe and I am judged all the time,
I have done nothing wrong, I have not done a crime,
I was born a breed that seems to be tainted,
Shame as I my friends here think my breed is sainted.

I long for the sofa, a cuddle and a kiss,
The day this will happen is a day full of bliss.

Love Joe

My Ideal Home

  • Can live with a female dog
  • Cat free home
  • Can live with children over the age of 8 years old
  • Can be left for 4-5 hours providing i’ve been well exercised

Special Thanks

Thank you to Bridget Davey Photography for many of the superb photographs featured on the HULA website.




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
