Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff, visitors 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.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

About Teddy

6 to 12 Months


Teddy is bubbly young lad who still has a lot to learn. Unfortunately he has quite a few anxieties about the world so will need very patient and understanding owners who will take things slowly with him while he settles in to his new life. He needs a little time to warm to you but once you've made the cut then he'll be your friend for life! He is very affectionate and forms a strong bond with his owners. He'll need to learn all his basic training, including house training, but he likes his treats so this will help keep him focussed.

Type of home needed

Teddy will do well in a peaceful home in a quiet area where he can fully relax and feel secure. A busy urban area will not be suitable as traffic noise may worry him. His owners must be within a 30-minute drive of the Leeds rehoming centre as multiple visits to his new home will be needed to help his transition. Although he can't live with young children, over 16's should be fine. He will need a secure garden so he has somewhere to explore off lead. This will also help with his house training. His owners will need to be with him 24/7 as he cannot currently be left alone. It will take time but if done very slowly we hope he could eventually spend very short periods on his own. He will need to continue his dog socializing as he has very little experience of this, which means he needs to be the only dog in his home for now.

More about me

All Teddy needs is a chance. With a lot of patience, gentle encouragement and in the right home he has lots of potential. Can you help him become the dog we know he can be?


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...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Teddy, who is based at Leeds. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
