CARE Dog Rescue have new dogs coming in daily. There are all types, shapes and looks. We do not get many small dogs, but from time to time small dogs do come along. So you never know, your ideal companion may be with us now and looking for a home.
We rehome most of the unclaimed stray dogs in this area. We only have a limited time to find a home for these dogs or they may be euthanized by the local authorities. Therefore if you are even slightly interested in one of these dogs please call us as soon as possible, it just might save a life!
Please phone CARE Dog Rescue on 01493 653955 to discuss the type of dog you want, so that we can do our best to match the right dog to you and your family.

Dogs in need of a good home as of 9 Mar 2014
Dixie - Border Collie, Female (Neutered), 4 years old, Vaccinated and Chipped, OK with dogs, OK with children, Loves people, OK with cats, Housetrained, DOB 05 Oct 09
A lovely dog, loves to play with ball and go for walks, Like traveling on the train, bus or car, Will let you take things from her, Good off lead, Very affectionate, Can be left.
Family has new baby and feel Dixie would be happier in a home that can give her more time and attention.
Murphy - Border Colie, Male (Neutered), 5 years, Murphy is a wonderful gentleman; He loves cuddles, Very good on the lead, A bit nervous off the lead and he likes to keep in his comfort zone, will look back to make sure you are not too far behind, His recall is good when he trust you, Murphy is a very happy boy who loves human company, Good with other dogs and cats, Would love to be the centre of your attention.
Due to bereavement, and work commitments, I am no longer able to offer Murphy the life style he should enjoy.
Poppy - Border Collie, Female (Neutered), 5 years, She is a real character, Would be best suited as the only dog in the family, although she could be left for short periods she needs someone at home with her, Great off the lead with fantastic recall, Needs training on the lead as she can get a bit excitable with passing traffic, so a quieter residence is preferred. Poppy loves to run and play with a ball, which she will do all day given the chance, On the beach she prefers large stones which should be avoided as they wear out down teeth, She needs a committed home that can cope with a very intelligent Collie needing daily walks, loving and cuddles.
Due to bereavement, and work commitments, I am no longer able to offer Poppy the life style she should enjoy.
Bella - Jack Russell, Female (Neutered), 18 months, Vaccinated, Chipped, Lovely little dog, Needs house training, No small children, Does not like other dogs, Super affectionate, Nice dog.

Stray - Rottie, Female, about 3 to 4 years, large and muscular, not good with dogs, seems fine with people, a nice dog and affectionate.
Stray - Rottie, Male, under 2 years, very nice, not good with dogs, seems great with people.
Lola - Staffie, Female, young dog, not good with other dogs, a stray who was rehomed several months ago, returned because she went for other dog in the home, very affectionate, very stressed in kennels.
Benji - Finnish Spitz, Male (Neutered), Vaccinated, House trained, Good with dogs, Good recall, Not possessive of his food, Lovely soft silky coat, doesn't like to be brushed, A loyal and loving little dog.
He does grab and tries to rip post, Benji sometimes lunges towards scooters, skate boards and cyclists when out in the lead. He can also try to nip the back of people’s legs when they go away from him, so not for families with children, Better suited to an adult hom
Must be rehomed due to his owner passing away.
Remie - Chihuahua (long coat), Male (Neutered), 18 months old, Vaccinated, Chipped, Lap dog, Ok with dogs he knows, Nervous of strange dogs, Can be left, Barks at strangers sometimes. A lovely little dog who is a bit shy and nervous at first, but fine when he gets to know people and dogs, almost completely house trained.
Must be rehomed due to marriage break up.
Jessie - Staffie x, Female (Neutered), 2 1/2 to 3 years, Good with dogs both on and off lead, Can live with another dog if they are friendly, Jessie is Microchipped, Vaccinated, crate- trained and chooses her crate as her bed, Travels well in the car (travelled for 3 hrs with no problem) and is happy either loose or in her crate whilst travelling, Can be left at home normally for 2 hours but has been left for 6 hrs, rarely, without problem. Jessie is calm and relaxed around the home and doesn't currently go on the furniture or upstairs. She get's a bit nervy in the dark and may bark at her own reflection if the curtains aren't drawn. NOT good with cats or small furry critters like guinea pigs, rabbits, etc, Loves long walks but hates the rain, walks nicely on her lead, loves a good run off lead, especially on the beach, good recall, but equally happy with a short walk round the block and really will just take any attention she can get.
We rehomed Jessie from CARE as a stray in June 2012. She has completed Bronze and Silver clicker training and passed with flying colours. She enjoys a bit of home-made agility. Use to live in a busy family with 3 children under 10, and whilst she adores her family unit, she requires careful supervision with strangers / visitors to the home. Gets excitable with young children in home or outside, occasionally meets people she doesn't like (usually large men) but just barks or growls at them.
Unfortunately, Jessie had to be be re-homed because she became increasingly protective of her family unit and with the small children having lots of friends in to play, with lots of running around as she simply gets too stressed. Jessie was very calm when we first re-homed her, so a quieter home will suit her and she should settle back into the calm girl she use to be.
Duke (a Stray) - Staffie cross, Male (Neutered), 6 years old, Microchipped to a London address but no one there, Very shy as you can see from the pictures, Very affectionate and so wants to be friends. Very cowered in kennels and possible he could have been abused with shouting or beatings. Loves to be stroked and fussed, Will give his heart to you if you treat him nice (and it seems he needs a break in life!).
Now in a foster home, Can be left, Has become friends with a female Staffie in the foster home, Clean indoors, Quite boy who sleeps a lot. An ideal companion for older person as he does not need long walks but is strong on the lead when he wants does pull.
Stray - Dogue de Bordeaux x type, Female, Around 1 to 2 years, Nice, Sweet girl, Affectionate and Loving.
Tinka - Husky x Malamute x GSD, Male (Neutered), 5 years, Vaccinated, Microchipped, Vet checked in good condition, Born with a deformed leg which had to be amputated (bottom two pictures are 3 yrs ago before amputation), Lived with children and use to live with a cat, He prefers and enjoys being outside, Initially hesitant of other dogs, especially when on a lead, but friendly when he knows they are not a threat, The same applies to "new" people, Tinker would be useless as a guard dog as he would rather lick than bite. His favourite past times are walks and chasing after balls thrown etc.
Owners reluctantly must rehome Tinka due to genuine personal circumstances that mean Tinka is left over 12 hours a day.
Khan - GSD x Collie, Male (Neutered), 18 months old, Chipped, Vaccinated, Has Pet Passport, OK with dogs but prefer to be the only dog in the home, Loves people and requires lots of loving, Clean indoors, Never been around children, Brought from Bulgaria as a pup by owners, Loves his walks but pulls on lead so some training needed.
A much loved family pet that has to be rehomed due to owners illness.
