Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.


I'm looking for a new home...

About Maddie

2 to 5 Years


Maddie is an independent girl who likes nothing more than investigating her surroundings. She loves putting her nose to good use so would enjoy lots of fun activitives to keep her mind mentally stimulated.

Type of home needed

Maddie is looking for active owners who are up for doing some training. She can show a lovely sit but does need to brush up on other basic commands as well as some lead and focus work around other dogs. She has greeted dogs here at the centre politely but much prefers her own company. Leaving hours in the home can potentially be a few hours but should be built up gradually while she is adjusting to the new environment.

More about me

Maddie would be best suited to live with older children (16 years) as she enjoys her independence.


In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continue our vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd like to help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.
