Adopting Cats, Dogs and other Small Pets
The Dogs, cats and other pets advertised for adoption here and elsewhere on this site may have been advertised by private individuals or Pet Rescue or Pet Welfare organisations. In each case, the current owners-keepers will have their own procedure for adoption. Please remember that in the majority of cases, adoption enquiries are not handled by telephone, and may require a certain amount of form filling and a house visit. If you are interested in adopting a dog, cat or other small pet, you will generally need to make an appointment to view the animal.

Information about Rosie
Rosie is a boisterous Bull Mastiff x large breed puppy. She had 6 owners before we took her on but unfortunately, we have found she is too much for us. She needs a home with someone who is used to large breed puppies as she has obviously missed out on her litter mates helping to break her of bad habits like hard mouthing, jumping up and lunging on the lead. She generally walks quite well on the lead although she is very strong. She has minimal recall so can only be let off the lead in a confined area. We had her spayed at a year old, she is microchipped, house trained and in good general health. She still likes to prune and eat any garden shrubbery and will destroy fences unless they are strongly dog proofed. We have had her for just over a year and love her dearly but feel we are not the right people to give her the full, active life she needs. She has got bite history but it was partly my own fault as I tried to take a wrapped chocolate sweet from her and she snapped at me and caught my hand and arm, not seriously I might add, but I am obliged to let anyone interested know the full facts. Look forward to anyone who thinks they could give Rosie the love and attention she needs.
