How We Work

Following Covid, demand for dogs in the UK remains high but as we expected, many dogs are coming into Rescue as normal life returns. With this in mind, 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.

We know every dog is different and has different needs. So when we rehome, we need to give the dog the family that is right for it. 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 due to the financial crisis. The dogs they rushed out to buy during lockdown may not be part of their plans for the future and they may not have the financial resources to keep a dog.

We will of course keep you all updated as these trends and demands change.

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

Hi, I'm Teddy

I’m a fabulous 3 year-old boy looking for my furever family that can support me with my training. I’m a bit boisterous at the moment but have been doing very well and learning how to walk without pulling. I would love a family without young children and where I would not be left for long periods as I’m not used to that yet; I really need to be the only dog as well.

I’m a lovely fun boy and if you have boxer experience, I will keep up my training and be the bestest boy the team tell me I am.

Paws crossed,

Love Teddy..xx

Note from the Rescue:

We are currently considering existing adoption applications and are hopeful the perfect family is just on the horizon for this dog. If, however, our existing applications are not quite suitable for them, we will obviously consider new applications moving forward.

Hello, my name is Betty

I'm just saying hello as I'm currently being assessed. Please watch this space for further pupdates.

Hello, my name is Milly

As you can see, I’m a beautiful 2½ year old red girl that prefers a cuddle more that playing with toys. I can pull a bit so will need some lead work but happy to meet people and other dogs whilst I am out and about. I really need to be the only dog in my house though and older children would perhaps be more suitable than a young family for me.

I love the water and have my paws crossed for a family that I can go out and about with and make happy memories.

Love Milly..xx

Say hello to Harley

Harley is now ready to find his furever home as he is doing well with his training. He needs a home where his new owner(s) will continue his training and development.

Harley is a big, strong boy who can pull on the lead so he will need someone who can handle his strength and ideally have Boxer experience. He is unsure of dogs who get too close to him and can react if they approach, however he has been taught “leave it” and has responded well to this command. He will also need a home without any other dogs or cats, but could be rehomed with older children who have lived with dogs before.

He is a real cuddle monster and loves to play in water.

As you can see from his photos, Harley is a beautiful brindle boy (who will be 6 in September) and he deserves a loving and supportive home.

If you think you meet the above criteria and would like to apply to adopt Harley then please contact the rescue in the usual ways; if you are on our adoption waiting list please let us know if you are interested in Harley (providing you meet the criteria) and one of the team will get back to you.

Thank you from all the Team and, of course, Harley.

Say hello to Neville

Neville has just been welcomed into NAYBR and we are still assessing him for rehoming. Please don't call in yet. We'll let him tell you his story when he is ready.
