* Direct from Home Adoption * Here is some of what Rhubarb’s current owner had to say about her... “Rhubarb is a four year old Black Labrador, Collie crossbreed. She is 60cm(2ft) in height. Is very friendly and likes to be around humans and other dogs. She’ll lick a stranger if they let her. She adores being part of the pack and does not like being left alone. She needs to be in an active house, or if possible doggy daycare. She gets on very well with other dogs, is playful and loves football, a lot! Rhubarb has a high energy level and is very strong. So she would suit owners that are physically fit and able to handle her strength. She requires two walks a day, morning and evening with one or two weekly runs off leash in an enclosed area. Rhubarb is the ideal dog for people who like to exercise, run and keep fit. A special dog to have around, both fun and loving she will enhance the wellbeing of those around her.”

* Direct from Home * Stormzy is a well loved boy who is being sadly surrendered due to a change in accommodation circumstances. We are looking for a home with a very secure, preferably walled garden for Stormzy as he has proved himself to be a bit of a climber and an escape artist. We would also recommend training classes for Stormzy with his new owner as he can get distracted by cars and passers-by when out on walks. Here is some of what his owner had to say about him... “Stormzy is a beautiful dog. Loves to be inside, up on your lap and on the bed. Talks back to you. Loves being around other dogs and is well used to living with other dogs. Lived with a cat. Brings shoes, clothes anything thats around him to greet you at the door. Doesn’t chew though. Lives with a seven year old so he’s used to children too. Doesn’t like cows. Isn’t good with recall when out as he likes to explore and bark. Loves to be around people but fine on his own when you’re gone to work. Loves his walks and swimming in the sea or anything that has a bit of water. Would make a lovely family dog.”

Our striking boy Henry is still on the look out for someone special. He's a two year old blue merle Collie who is absolutely everything you could ever want in a dog! He is friendly, gentle, affectionate and easy to walk....not to mention, absolutely gorgeous inside and out. The list goes on and on....and Henry has quite the fan club amongst our kennel crew. Considering he's a young Collie, he's pretty laid back by typical Collie standards. He's still looking for an active life of course, but we reckon once he gets his walkies, he will be more than happy to chill out with his people for the evenings. He gets on with everyone and is truly a pleasure to know. He has been waiting weeks now and it's time for him to start a new life.

* Foster home needed * We would really love to get Oliver into a foster home, he would need a secure garden and he would even suit someone who works, as he would be content on his own in the garden we think. He does prefer out of doors as the noises of normal household stuff (taps, washing machines, telly etc) can make him anxious or over excited. * It's no exaggeration to say that Oliver has absolutely captured the hearts of the kennel crew with his sad, soft gaze and oh-so gentle, affectionate ways. He has an old back leg injury, which went untreated in his old life. He has been examined by a vet and we've been assured that he's not in any pain but he has a slight limp. He walks very well on lead. Oliver would make a perfect housemate if you live alone. He is very shy and unassuming at first with strangers. ...but he's an absolute darling once he trusts you. He's quiet and calm by typical Collie standards but sadly he is upset by kennel life. He's looking for a simple and quiet life in an adult only home with lots of time with his human. He likes other dogs too so he would make an ideal second dog. He is only around two years old and we are sure that with some love and patience on his side, that his confidence will utterly flourish....

Zoe is a shy girl who will need a sympathetic new owner who will show her the ropes. She needs someone home during the day and a secure garden. Children should be older, maybe 10 years up but not a very busy household. She is a lovely sweet girl but has two working breeds in her make up so dont be fooled.

We would be looking for a Collie skilled home for this girl.

* Direct from Home * According to his family, Rocky is very good in the house (He is house-trained.) Even though Rocky is an only pet, he does get on with other dogs. Here is what else his family had to say about him... “Rocky is a 5 year old black male Labrador Husky. He is very pleasant and friendly and loves the company of people. He is energetic and fun-loving. He likes to wander around the garden or go on long walks – particularly around the lake. He also likes to lounge around the house and lie in front of the fire. We are no longer able to give him the exercise he needs so reluctantly we are looking for a new home for him where he can enjoy the company of people who can take him for walks and enjoy him.”

Primrose is a lively, young girl. Another collie who came into us as a stray. She has bags of energy and will need an active home but also loves being in the company of people. Although she gets along with other dogs, she is very much focused on humans, looking for the next cuddle.

Maximus is a JRT x Staffie boy who has had to be relocated through no fault of his own. He is a bouncy, high-energy, super happy boy who has been raised with children and other dogs. He does not like cats though and needs to learn a little self control when it comes to meeting new doggy friends too. Maximus needs a new family who can match his energy levels and give him the stability he needs after the upset of leaving the only home he has ever known.

* Direct from Home * Mia is a lovely dog who is being surrendered by her family as they are sadly no longer able to provide the home or life she needs. We are looking for a home with an enclosed, secure garden for Mia. She would be fantastic company for someone who she could be out and about with as it would combine two of her favourite things activity and company! She has lived with other dogs and horses. She has had contact with the neighbour’s small children, with no issues. Here is some more of what her owner said about her... Mia is a very friendly, energetic Husky cross. She is spayed and is fully house trained. Mixes well and gets on with other dogs. She loves long walks and is a good fun dog, she really enjoys human company. Can live in doors or out doors and she is not a noisy dog (she doesn’t bark much.) Doesn’t travel too well in cars as she can sometimes become sick but has improved with this (this is something that can be helped with training also.) Doesn't like cats!!

Eggsy is a lovely girl, she’s a bit shy right now and we think a rural home would suits her better.

Yet another abandoned Hound, Jenga is in pretty poor shape with an open sore on his leg, several other cuts & bruises and a very swollen fetlock. He has seen some hard times for sure, but we are hoping to put a smile on his face with a comfy bed, medical treatment for his injuries and regular meals and cuddles.

Alrighty, where are our German Shepherd fans? Clara is big & bouncy and will really need either an experienced owner or a home in the country. She is almost full GSD and can be a bit barky with other dogs and appears aggressive sometimes, she isn't though, she’s just a young, bouncy youngster. With a shiny black coat and such loving brown eyes, she's bound to light up your life. Clara exhibits the best features of German Shepherds - curious, alert, clever and brave. Imagine having such a companion all to yourself! We here at MADRA are delighted to have met her. Our happiness would be complete if Miss Clara was to find a home of her own, with someone who would bring out the best in her. Are you up to the task?
