MADRA Older Beagle X, Keano (AKA Robert) is a low maintenance gentleman who is looking for his forever home. He is manner… https://t.co/7pO2qCikGo

Javvy was recently surrendered to our care. He is missing the love and security of a family home. He is six years old so he is over the giddy youngster phase but still loves his walks.

Our goldie oldie Charlie came into us just before Christmas with his yorkie pal Bella after their owner sadly passed away. Bella found a new home but little Charlie is still with us dreaming of finding someone to love him. Thankfully Charlie went into a wonderful foster home but he needs to find his forever home. This is what his foster family had to say about him...Charlie is such a lovely little character full of love and life. He adores his walks and getting outside in the fresh air and then panning out after in the sun or on his cosy bed. He is fully house trained and a very placid, quiet doggie with a lovely personality. We can't overemphasise how much he loves his cuddles and being cosy under as many cushions and blankets as he can find. He really likes to be around humans so he probably wouldn't fare well in a home where the owners are gone a lot. He also likes a quiet house so probably would suit an older or younger couple or person without children. About Charlie: Things he loves! Morning walks. Staring at you mournfully every time you eat even if he has just had his own food or a nice doggy treat... Couch snuggles and watching netflix. Sunbathing. As many cuddles as you can possibly fit into one day. Licking you to death. Things he doesn't love! Places that are too busy with too many people. He likes peace and quiet and zen. The sound of the hoover and hairdryer. When you have hugs with your partner and don't include him too.

Are you READY????? Ready to meet the dream girl?!?! Say hi to Patricia, a beautiful and utterly enchanting Sprollie girl. Well with a Collie and Springer Spaniel in her, you already know she is a bouncing bundle of fun! She can also "sit" and who knows what else she learned in her old life? She was certainly well cared for and she adores everyone she meets. She is very loving and gentle despite her enthusiasm for life. She loves other dogs too. She also knows how to work the camera! She is only around a year and a half old. Hopefully you can offer Patricia the fun and active life she craves.

Keano was surrendered to the pound and although he is coping very well, we would just love to make his visit here a short one. We think he is about 6 years old, although he does have a little "old mans face" that makes him appear a bit older, and he is small to medium size so would fit into small corner in most homes. He is a very mannerly gent and is quiet, calm & clean in his kennel, and causes us no problems at all. Keano is a Beagle x and is used to the outdoor life but I'm pretty sure he could learn all about the comfort of his own bed by the fire very quickly. He would suit an older person who wants a low maintenance guy but who still enjoys regular exercise and someone who will provide all the companionship & comfort that Keano deserves.

Our super friendly boy, Simba, is just waiting to steal your heart. He is a very gentle boy who has a heart bursting with love. He is so easy to walk on the lead. He is only around 16 months old and he would love a family (and a secure garden) of his very own. He would also love another canine pal to prance around with but he is willing to negotiate the terms and conditions! We absolutely love Simba!

Say hello to our Cavachon poser, Bailey! He arrived to us recently from one of the pounds. He wants to be your new pal! He is around 18 months old and full of pep in his step so he's not for the faint hearted! He can be a bit demanding and doesn't like not having your full attention! With some positive reinforcement training in an adult only home, we think he will be a wonderful companion. Isn't he handsome?!

Say hello to our couch-loving rain-hating boy Valentino. On rainy days like today, he only wants a couple of quick trots out and about and then he would much rather snuggle up and binge watch something on Netflix with you. He does love a good gallop on a nice day. He is a friendly, trusting and gentle boy who is searching for a human of his very own to love. He is only around two years old. He has the most beautiful, expressive face so it is impossible to resist those eyes. He knows that hounds don't have much luck when it comes to adoption offers but he's hoping you are looking for a chilled out boy who has plenty of sparkle. He's a real catch!

Zorro...no, not the masked hero,the adorable terrier mix!..has announced his intention to find his furever home. Zorro wishes to alert all potential adopters to his favourite things, relaxing with humans, cuddling with humans, pottering about with humans, taking lazy walks with humans. Zorro also wants them to know he quite likes other dogs & will happily consent to sharing lap space, with another laid-back lap lovin pupper. Zorro is not fond of cats, he thinks they were created specifically for him to chase. Zorro can be a bit possessive of his toys so small children would not be a good fit. Zorro is a small terrier mix of about 2 years old and a champion cuddler. He is fairly laid back so he will suit an older less active home right down to the ground. He does not need alot of exercise a couple of strolls a day for a sniff & a stretch will do him perfectly. He will do best with someone he can be with most of the day or in a home with another little dog.

Hennessy is in poor condition and he is feeling terribly down, we can't imagine how someone could not have gotten him the most basic treatment for mange. Anyhow, his life has turned around and once he gets the all clear from the vet then we hope there will be a 5 star home waiting for him. He is a Collie x Husky we think and is still only a babe of about a year old. He is very friendly, clean in his kennel and good on the lead. We haven't mixed him with other dogs yet but from what we have seen, he seems to be a good all-rounder!

Meet Dolmio..... and check out those ears!!!! Dolmio is a good natured little JRT. She can be a little reserved when meeting new people but once you get to know her, she will shower you with affection! She is around 15 months old and would prefer to live as an only dog in a quiet area. That's what she told us!

So, tell us....who can handle a Yorkie with attitude?! Cutie pie Baxter is feeling much better after his groom from Mairead (thanks Mairead!) Now he just needs to find his forever person. Baxter is searching for someone who will give him the time and space he will need to get comfortable with them. He has been through a lot of upheaval and it has made him a bit defensive and snappy if he feels pushed. We strongly feel that he will thrive if he finds someone patient who can guide him. He adores his walks but he isn't loving kennel life. He is around five years old.

Champion tail wagger, Diego, is hoping you'll come and meet him. Diego is around two years old and he's looking for a fellow ball fanatic to offer him a home!

Meet the aptly named Prince! He is a small/medium sized Labrador mix. Prince is initially very shy but once he susses you out, he turns into a completely waggy and snuggly little boy. He is only around a year old and he is looking for someone with a big heart to take him home. We think kids might be a little scary for him but older teens might suit. We can't believe how much confidence he has gained in a week so we are sure he will only blossom more in a loving family home.

Alright, where are our husky fans?!?! Meet Shelly, our super affectionate lap dog (yes, she really thinks she is a lap dog!) She is NOT loving the sunshine these days. She is very petite for a husky and she is around five and a half years old. She is very chatty and loves having deep and meaningful conversations with us! She is a little needy so she wouldn't like to be left on her own for the day. She would like another canine pal too. As she is a husky she will needs lots of activity but she is relatively low energy by typical husky standards! She's upset with finding herself living in a kennel so we are hoping someone will come along to adopt her very soon.....

This very shy but friendly, waggy boy is back with us again and he is looking for a new human to call his very own. He is around two years old and although he has the body of a collie, he has the height of a terrier! He will need a secure garden as he is known for being a flight risk. He also needs to live in a calm house in a quiet area. We know this is very specific criteria but we would really love to see this poor lad flourish into a more confident boy. He would benefit from having a nice resident dog to help him learn that the world isn't always such a scary place. Can anyone help him out? He really needs someone patient to give him the time he needs to figure them out. He does let his guard down when he feels secure enough and then he turns into the happiest boy and the ultimate tail wagger!

My name is Mr. T and here I am showing off my "sit" and "lie down." I arrived into MADRA recently from the pound (without the gold bling SADLY!!!!) I don't know how or why I ended up there but what you really need to know is that I am a big happy softie. I love people and I love showing off all the cues I learned in my past life. I am only around two years old so I am still bundles of fun. Not to brag but it's just a matter of fact to say I am a big hit with our staff and volunteers. Word to the wise....I am very strong so I will need a well fitting harness and someone who is willing to help me learn how to walk loosely on a lead. I will need a secure garden as I am a big boy and I would hate to get out and end up lost and scared. The humans say I am going to make a dream companion for the lucky person (or people) who get to adopt me so if you want it to be you, hurry up and fill out the paperwork now.
