Corona Virus Statement - Update April 2021

As you know, we have monitored the effect of the pandemic in Rescue and have remained open with kennel space available and doing what we can to raise funds whenever possible.

Demand for dogs in the UK remains high but as we expected, dogs are starting to come into Rescue as normal life returns. With this in mind, we have now reopened the Adoption process for new applications, but we urge people to consider their long-term family / work life balance when considering any dog. Please do not apply or be tempted to consider a dog that will not fit with your circumstances however handsome, pretty, or cute they may look.

As you know, all our dogs are matched to the right family and every dog is different and has different needs. We work hard when any dog comes into Rescue and will provide the help and advice to new owners if needed to give the dog the very best chance to flourish and be happy.

Our message remains simple, please be patient with rescues and please do not be tempted to look to puppy farms or ‘have a go’ breeders who can exploit the increase in demand. We are concerned that we will continue to see an increase in surrenders once everyone is back at work and back to their busy lives; the dogs they rushed out to buy during lockdown may not be part of their plans for the future.

Thank you for reading this and our Coordinators are on-hand to answer any questions you may have.

Hi everyone, my name is Orinoco

I'm glad to say I've had a lot of interest, so applications for me are now closed.

However you can still read my story below

I came into Rescue from a bad situation, so I am looking for a home that can help me continue my journey into normal doggie life.

I am a handsome 2 year old boy but the Team here say I need lots of help with my continued daily training program. I am doing well but have a way to go, the behaviourist has also given us a good insight into my needs, so my homework and training is laid out ready for my family to continue.

My NAYBR Foster family have really helped me get started but it’s time to look for my Furever home now. I will need to be the only dog in the home and no children please as I need to focus and can be excitable. I have separation anxiety so will need someone around to help me with that also. I have triggers that may show as dominance (clinging and mounting for example), but it isn’t. I just need to learn how to behave appropriately as I didn’t get chance to be a normal puppy.

If you feel you have the love, patience and confidence to help me flourish then please contact the Rescue.

I have my paws crossed.

Hi, it’s me Buddy

I am a 10 month old beautiful Boxer / Bulldog cross who has LOADS of energy. I can be a little nervous of children so the team think I will be better with just adults in the home. I am doing well with my training as I am clever boy so am looking for a family that can patiently and confidently help me continue my excellent progress.

All I’ve known is COVID restrictions so I need to get out and about and learn from the beginning; someone who is at home and can spend quality time with me would be ideal. I have met other dogs out and about, but I need to be the only dog in the home for now as I need learn to control my excitable nature, especially when I meet new things.

The team have said I will need my boy bits off soon so they will discuss that with my new family as I am a bit young yet.

That’s me then and I have my paws crossed for my new family.


Hi there, I’m Tyson

My NAYBR friends tell me I've had loads of people wanting to give me a new home, so they are not taking any more requests for me.

I am a stunning Boxer boy who is nearly 2 years old.

I came into rescue through no fault of my own and the team think I am very lovable but excitable. I get a tasty treat when I walk nicely but I will jump up when I get excited, I am learning quickly though.

I'm open to living with another dog but as always it would have to be the right dog who is a good stable influence. I am used to older children and am used to being left for short periods of time, I do prefer lots of company however and plenty of positivity when I am a good boy.

Got my paws crossed.

Love, Tyson..x
