Hades

Hades is a handsome Labrador cross who has been waiting far too long to meet his perfect match. He’d like an adult-only home with experienced owners who can help him settle in and show him the ropes. While he’s a big lad, he can be nervous of strangers but is very loving and loyal once he knows you. He’s such a sweet, affectionate dog, once you get past his shyness. He was very under-socialised when he first arrived in RSPCA care but he’s been very brave and is learning every day. Hades would like a quiet home as the only pet with someone who will be around for most of the day.

Charlie

Charlie was rescued alongside 44 other dogs after being found living in a run down outbuilding in Ceredigion, in Wales, in January. The five-year-old is one of the last dogs rescued from the operation left looking for a new home after months of rehabilitation. He was very nervous and withdrawn when he arrived and wouldn’t move from the corner of his kennel for about six weeks. He slowly began to come out of his shell but didn’t take his first steps outside until May. He’s since come on leaps and bounds and is now ready to find a loving new home.

Rory

Deerhound cross Rory is only nine-months-old but already weighs in at over 30kg. This big lad is a gentle giant who is still growing so is looking for a home with owners who have owned big dogs before!

Alfie

Three-year-old Japanese Akita cross Alfie has spent far too long looking for his forever home. This big goofball is very intelligent and knows lots of commands which he’s happy to show off for a treat. He loves to run around and snuggles up to you for a cuddle. He is a nervous boy so is looking for an adult-only home where he’ll be the only dog and can have all of the attention. He can get anxious walking on the lead past unknown dogs but he enjoys playing with dogs he knows.
