 Labrador Collie Cross  Male  10 years
 History and Recommendations
My name’s Sam and I’m a very sweet boy, please don’t let my age put you off me!

I find the world all a bit scary and can be quite nervous about meeting new people, but once I’ve got to know you, I can relax a little and will get excited to see you! I will need you to please be patient with me.

I can live with both male and female dogs in my new home. I would need someone to be with me most of the day, but can be left up to 1 – 2 hours. I 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.

I would like a home with children over the age of 15 years old due to my nervousness; also I need a cat free home.

Please do you have a place in your heart and place in your home for me? Sam xxXxx

  • CHILDREN OVER 15 YEARS

Hi everyone, my name is Barney and I’m looking for my forever home. I am a 4 year old, Jack Russell terrier cross.

I am a little nervous of new people to begin with but as soon as I know you I love my fuss and affection and will follow you around.

I have been mixed here at HULA with other dogs and I was very good with both male and females so I can live with other dogs in my new home.

I am fine to be left for up to 3-4 hours if I have been exercised beforehand. I was housetrained when I came here but I may need reminding of this when I go to my new home.

I do like to be kept busy so will need mental and physical stimulation as I am an active boy.

So if you are ready for a loving man in your life??? Barney xxXxx

 History and Recommendations
Hello my name is Anita and I’m an Akita, and I am a loving and friendly girl. I’m also 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 that 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 background history for me. I will need someone around most the day but can be left 1-2hours if well exercised beforehand.

I sometimes show 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

BADGER

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Lurcher  Male  5 years
 History and Recommendations
My name’s Badger 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.

When I came to HULA I did have ringworm and I have now been treated for this and am all clear now. This is why my coat looks a little thin but it is starting to grow now.

I have been mixed here at HULA with other dogs and I was really good with them so I can live with other dogs in my new home pending on introductions.

I can be left on my own for approximately 1-2 hours as long as I’ve been well exercised before I’m left, as I do get a little distressed when left on my own but with training I can be taught to be left for longer.

I came here to HULA as a stray so the HULA girls have not got any back ground information about me, but they have said I give the best hugs and fuss.

BEANS

Photo of Beans the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Crossbreed  Male  1 year
 History and Recommendations
Hello, my name is Beans 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 people, therefore I 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.

 History and Recommendations
Hello, my name's Esther 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.

I’m a loving and friendly girl, although I can be a little boisterous and excitable at times. I’m an active girl, who loves being out and about on walks and playing and it has been 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 building up my socialising 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?

MARY

 Breed  Sex  Age
 Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross  Female  18 months
 History and Recommendations

I am reserved pending introductions

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

Photo of Mary the dog
I am such a loving and loyal lady and I do so hope I find a family. I am rather worried that I won’t find anyone to love me as the word at the farm is that people keep saying they don’t want a staffy :( This makes us all rather sad as we are all dogs and we are all loving and caring whether we are a staffy, a terrier or a Labrador. So please see me for me and not what you think I might be.

I have been told I am so affectionate and I must admit I do love tummy rubbles. I can get quite concerned at fast movements though so I will need a quiet and calm home.

I will need someone around most of the day as I may need reminding of house training and I also sometimes get a little worried when alone, however I will soon pick up that it is OK and you will be able to increase this time.

So if you fancy some fun and lots of cuddles in your life then please let us know.
Love always Mary xxx
Still waiting...

A poem from Mary

Photo of Mary the dog
Such kind eyes and soft to touch,
A great big heart and doesn't ask for much,
Love and kindness, loyal to the end
Lifetime companion, always your best friend.

But still they pass and walk on by,
Being a staffie is the reason why,
Aggressive and mean is each one,
They want to kill things, just for fun.

We bite our lip and try to change minds
These dogs are loving, friendly and kind
So take a minute to look past a breed
And get to know what in between

Love Mary (still searching for a home)
xxxxx

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
