Chelsey lost her home at the age of 7 months, as her owner couldn’t take her with him into his new home. Chelsey was then misread and misunderstood by her new family for the next six months. She ended up in the dreadful situation of living in a small crate, muzzled, and only taken out three times a day for toileting. She also had restricted water intake. Her family booked her in to be put to sleep, and the vet nurse began asking questions… The nurse secured a rescue place with ourselves and also paid for Chelsey’s spay. A family member then took Chelsey in for 4 days post-spay recovery, and was able to pass her into to our Rescue with very positive information. Chelsey is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated.

Our process starts when our homing team receives your online homing questionnaires. They will only contact where they think we may have a dog to match your circumstance and needs so the more open you are the better. Our matching is based on our dog’s needs; their temperament, energy and your skill levels to achieve a good homing. We will only contact you if we have a suitable dog.

Your garden security must be checked and reinforced to save everyone’s time.

For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £200. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.


Please note:
Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers in particular. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog’s life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
