My name is Cara and I am a little collie type female aged 12-18 months. I am petite, so smaller than thank I look in these pictures.I am super sweet and soft and I am looking for a quiet adult home with patient humans who will help me grow in confidence. Don’t let my angelic face fool you though, I am smart as a whip, super trainable (will do anything for treats) and I am becoming an excellent human-trainer
Once I know and trust my humans I am happy to relax and play like a puppy. I love chew toys and to play tug of war. I also love my food. As I said, I am one smart cookie. I know sit, lie down and have learned to follow my humans and to touch their hand for food. I am not a big fan of cats though – those guys scare me! I am a little nervous of strange men at first and not a big fan of sudden noises but I am learning all the normal household noises and getting used to them in my foster home. I am house trained and learning lots about living in a home environment. My new people need to be prepared to continue with my training, including lead training.
I am neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.I am looking for a quiet adult home, ideally in a rural area (with secure garden) with someone who is willing to put a little time into building my confidence.
My name is Lara and I am a 4 month old lurcher mix pup. By the look of my paws I might be a big girl when fully grown. I am a great girl altogether with typical puppy energy. I am doing really well with crate training and sleep all night without fuss. I am working on house training and getting better every day. My new family will need to be prepared to continue with this as well as continuing with lead training which I have started. .I love other dogs and would do well with another dog for company or as an only dog with people who were prepared to put time into me.
I am fully vaccinated and microchipped and neutering when I am old enough will be part of my adoption agreement. If you think you can offer me the loving home I deserve please fill out our foster or adoption form.
My name is Flynn and I am a 2 year old scruffy terrier mix male. I am a happy go lucky chap now but I was found abandoned and starving in a garden. I am good with other dogs and people but I would like to chase cats.
I am good in car, house trained and crate trained and love to play in the garden with toys. I am a busy little guy so will need a fairly active home. I am very food motivated so super trainable. I settle well at night and enjoy cuddles on the couch before settling in my crate where I sleep all night without a peep.
I am neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you can offer me the loving forever home I deserve please fill out our adoption form.
My name is Penny and I am a 3-4 year old boxer x female. I am actually more like a minature boxer with hair which makes me way more interesting and attractive.
I am a steady, calm girl cos I am a grown up(so none of that puppy craziness) but I still know how to have a good time and I am lots of fun. Through no fault of my own, simply due to bureaucracy, I was held in a pound for over a year!! That’s far too long and lengthy kennel stays are certainly associated with compromises to a dog’s welfare. But I am a resilient lady and I have come through that and it is all behind me.
Despite all I have been through I am still my super chilled out and loving self and am doing well in my foster home. I am very friendly with people and am comfortable with all sorts of contact and handling. I love my grub and will happily work on Kong toys in my crate. I love going for walks and parkland or fields are my favourite – can sniff-sniff-sniff to my heart’s/nose’s content.
I am not bothered with traffic and noises, and can spend some time alone, once I have stuff to do and had a walk. After walks I am delighted to chill with my humans – snuggling on the sofa is a speciality.
I get a bit frustrated on lead when I see other dogs (which is really understandable given how long I was kept locked up). I don’t bark, I would just prefer to keep my distance and take in information. I move on from this really quickly. My new people will need to commit to some further training in this respect, and A Dog’s Life and Anied can help them with that.
I am looking for a forever home or a foster home in a quieter area as the only dog – I have lived with cats before so could probably live with a confident cat if introduced properly. I am house trained, crate trained and great in the car (I LOVE car trips). I am neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped If you can offer me the loving forever home that I really deserve please fill out our adoption form.
We are Roderick & Stewart and we are two fabulous Chinese Crested boys. We are not Siblings but are aged 1 year (Roderick) and 18 months (Stewart). We are super friendly boys and get along really well with both cats and dogs, as well as people of course. We love cuddles and we are LOTS OF FUN. We are quite high energy dogs so need an active home. We are ok on the lead and not stressed with trafficduring walks. We are good in the car, especially if we share the crate. We are crate trained and sleep happily in our crate at night.
We love our treats and food in general. We are getting better with our toilet training so new owners would need to be prepared to continue with that. We are better suited for a family with older children. We have no problem making friends with anyone, big or small. We need to be kept warm so coats and jumpers essential.
We can be homed together or go to separate homes. If we go together, ADL will discuss ways to keep the peace – adopting two similar aged and type rescue dogs is not always plain sailing.
We met a lovely lady at AniEd last week and here is what she had to say about each of us:
Stewart is a little more sensitive and quieter than Rod. He is confident, outgoing and very friendly. He is a little worried by sudden noises but is easily redirected and LOVES hotdog. He enjoys cuddles and massages, and is very affectionate.He is a little worried by sudden or invasive handling, and shows very, very mild food guarding – no freezing, whale eye or growling, but just would prefer some space and time to eat his yummy Kong (we ALL like a little space when eating!!).
Roderick is a live wire! He is super friendly and confident, loves to be in on all the action. He prefers not to be picked up too much and can get a little over-excited when greeting and meeting new people, and may mouth gently a bit. Roderick finds the world a very exciting place, and is just such a happy-chappy!
This breed will need special attention to being kept warm and their skin cared for. They prefer to be fed a good quality wet food, ideally from Kong toys, which they love! These guys are in great health so will just require maintenance throughout their lives.
Although Chinese Crested are considered toy breeds, these guys are in it for fun and will need active lives.
They don’t quite have the right conformation for agility, and will need further training. They will need plenty of adventure and play every day too!
They are neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you thing you can offer these fun guys the loving home they deserve please fill out our adoption form.
Here we are in action:
My name is Bogart and I am a 2 year old lurcher male. I am a friendly guy and good with other dogs. I am keen to learn new things and am a sporty guy so might do well with agility or other sporty activities.
I like company so ideally looking for a home where I would not be alone for long periods. I also would like to live with another dogs. Yes I am looking for a nice girlfriend for company!!
Once I am exercised I am happy to lounge on the couch. I am a very affectionate guy and I love cuddles. I am neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you can offer me the loving forever home that I deserve please fill out our adoption form. Pictures of my handsomeness taken by the awesome Michele at Meath Coast Dog Photography
My name is Jack and I am a 1-2 year old small Jack Russell male. I am a friendly little guy. I love to play and go on walks with my new doggy pal PJ. I love cuddles and will take them from anyone willing to give them – I do not discriminate. I am very food orientated so I am super easy to train. I am very good with other dogs and am crate and house trained. I am good on the lead and in car and can’t wait to find my forever family.
I am neutrered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you think you can offer me the forever home I deserve pleaseplease fill out our adoption form.
My name is Gracie and I am a 8-9 month old mixed breed female. I am a great girl, if I do say so
myself. I am very friendly and sweet but I can be a little timid for about 30 seconds when I meet new people. I am very well behaved and surprisingly calm for my age. I am VERY food motivated and so super trainable.When I came into the pound as a stray I was quite thin so I am making up for lost ground
I am crate trained and house trained and great in the car and happily comes along on short run arounds with my foster mum. I am very good on the lead and I love to smell my way around on new adventures. I can be slightly wary when going somewhere for the first time but on the second visit I am totally confident. I am well socialised and I mix with other dogs very well. I am in foster with children aged 6+ and am good with them and I love to play and have a run around with my foster siblings. All in all I am a little dote (so says my foster mum) and a very quick learner and would be a happy addition to any home.
I am fully vaccinated and microchipped and will be neutered before going to my forever home. If you can offer me the loving home I deserve please fill out our adoption form.
My name is Ernie and I am a 3-4 year old mixed breed male. I am a very sweet and sincere dog with a gentle nature. I am looking for a quietish home in a quieter area. I am not terribly demanding in terms of space or exercise could live with another dog (I would do well with a confident pal) but I would probably chase a cat.
I can also spend some time alone and my fosterer is continuing to build on that. I am a very well mannered boy and am house trained and crate trained.
I have met visiting children and am very appropriate but would not like to live with young kids as this might be a bit too overwhelming for me. I walk fine on lead but I would prefer a quiet area for walks, away from traffic, or would be quite happy to be exercised in a garden or fields/parkland – I love to sniff around. I am also getting used to short car journeys.
I am appropriate with new people and if given time will be your best pal. I am quite happy to hang out and potter, knowing my humans are nearby.
I am neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you can offer me the loving forever home that I deserve please fill out our adoption form.
My name is Holly and I am a 2-3 year old teeny tiny terrier female. I had a pretty bad start and ended up in the pound and pregnant and then lost all my babies. I am fully recovered now and looking for a forever home.
I love company and enjoy nothing better than being curled up on a lap.I am learning new tricks like sitting on command and crate training. I am good on lead and in car. I love to play running and chasing games and I love working on my Kong toy. I am a very sweet, gentle little lady, good with children and very clever. I am looking for a home as an only dog (for now) as I have been through a lot and would benefit from some one on one time. I like company so ideally where I will not be alone for very long periods. I am house trained and generally very well behaved in the house.
I am neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. would make a wonderful companion for someone. If you think you can offer me the loving home I deserve please fill out our adoption form.
