Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public but you can still adopt some of our dogs: take a look at their profiles to see which ones. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming.

We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe. We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment and this now applies to all of our rehoming centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Rowland

I'm looking for a new home...

About Rowland

Centre:
Breed:
Age:
2 to 5 Years
Sex:
Male

Likes

Rowland is a beautiful boy, a bit sensitive, but very loving and people orientated. He does need to work on his doggy skills, as he can be quite vocal them. He is housetrained, but likes company at home so does need someone around most of the day to help him settle. He is a big lad, being a Greyhound X Collie, and he definitely has attributes of both breeds.

Type of home needed

Rowland is looking for an active, quiet, adult only home that can follow on the training DT staff have had to start from scratch post surgery. He will need a sizeable garden to burn off some energy as he will need to be on lead and muzzled when out for his walks. His new home needs to have no neighbouring dogs and he should be the only pet in the home. Rowland would prefer to travel to quiet walks or have quiet areas on the doorstep so dogs can be avoided.

More about me

This gorgeous boy has spent quite a while at the centre and has had to have one of his hind legs removed due to an old injury before his arrival. He has come through the operation amazingly well, and is now looking forward to a new chapter of his life getting settled into a loving home of his own. If you have the time and the patience to help a very special boy find his 3 paws in a new home then please contact the centre to arrange a meet with this handsome hound.

 

During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs. This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...
