Just like the fictional detective, Holmes loves to explore new environments and discover new challenges. His ideal day would consist of a lovely walk with wonderful sights and smells, some training with his favourite humans, followed with a snuggle on the sofa (or on your lap) for some much-needed affection. Holmes' past hasn't been as easy one as he is the sad antithesis of our Dogs Trust message "a dog is for life, not just for Christmas". Poor Holmes was an unwanted gift which we have never been to work out why. Once he knows you, which can take time and patience due to his history, you will have a friend for life. The love he shows is unconditional, and he would like nothing more than to have the same affection in return.
Type of home needed
Holmes has made huge progress with us at the centre. He enjoys his walks but even more so now as he is learning that having dog friends to join him can be a lovely experience. Although he enjoys his companions on his walks, Holmes would love nothing more than to be an only pet in the home to soak up all the affection he has missed out on over the years.
More about me
Although Holmes looks strong and confident, he is a sensitive chap who just needs that bit of extra patience to get to know new people. Holmes has been working hard with us on making new friends at the centre and has stolen everyone's hearts! Will you let him have yours? Only pet in the home, adult only home with no visiting children. We will only arrange an appointment for you to meet this dog once we have received your completed Homefinding Questionnaire, spoken with you on the phone, completed your home check and both parties have agreed this could be the right dog for you. Please contact us on 01980 629 634 to request a questionnaire and start the process.
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...
