Alan needs a forever home

Could Alan be your doggy soulmate?

Alan

Alan is a well-behaved boy who likes to please, and walks nicely on the lead, but sadly, his loving personality doesn’t always shine through when people visit him at the animal centre. Staff have worked with Alan and get to see this affectionate boy’s true colours, and are hoping the right person will come along and give him a chance. Alan has responded really well to training and is a very intelligent dog who has been enjoying having a go at agility (video available) - he particularly loves to have his bum scratched and will happily stand for as long as you’ll fuss him!

Beautiful Bagheera

Could Bagheera be the dog you're looking for?

Bagheera wants a forever home

Bagheera is a ‘gentle giant’ who loves being around people and enjoys curling up on his bed and being fussed, so he would thrive in a home where his adopter will be around for much of the day for company and fuss. He is a dog who will thrive most by building a strong bond, and preferably with someone who is familiar with larger breeds such as the Presa Canaria, as he can be strong and enthusiastic on the lead.
