Our Dogs


LOLA is a young (exact age TBC but approx 3 years), neutered, female Terrier Cross who has come to us from another rescue after going unclaimed as a stray.


She was labeled as being dog reactive and within 5 minutes of coming into our care was seen to be behaving in a way that they had "not seen before", in a positive way.


Lively, friendly, loving walks and placed between two bigger dogs, she has settled in well.


Typical Terrier nature and will react to the usual triggers.


Assessments early doors have her at about a 4 on our scale.


Can you offer LOLA the home she truly deserves and longs for? Please contact us at


BILLY, a SBT at the tender age of nine years, this charming chap is currently our most mature and longest-serving inmate. With a loveable nature and a calming influence on the rest of the dogs, BILLY is an absolute pleasure to have at Dun-Roamin’ and a firm favorite among staff and volunteers. Nevertheless, we would love nothing more than to see this gentle soul secure a home of his own.


Heartlessly dumped at the age of seven, BILLY is long overdue a lucky break. Often found curled up in his crate, he is desperate to be loved and races out of his kennel at the first opportunity to plant himself at the feet of whoever he comes across first. BILLY is a dream to walk and absolutely adores the great outdoors. Loyal, affectionate and amiable, he is the epitome of ‘man’s best friend’. He loves both human and canine company and would certainly enjoy the companionship of a calm dog within his new home. BILLY does exhibit some behavior traits which are symptomatic of stress and with this in mind, we are seeking a low-adrenaline household. That said, his issues are not insurmountable and, in the right home, could be overcome in a relatively short period of time.


BILLY is neutered, KC inoculated and microchipped. The consummate gentleman, he is quiet, non-destructive and clean in the house. Could you offer BILLY the relaxed and peaceful environment he whole heartedly deserves? Rest assured, we will remain close at hand throughout the three month trial period and beyond. Please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information…


He does have niche issues but nothing that cannot be overcome and if approached in the right way, our scale rating could have him as low as a 4.

Smudge is now around 17-18 month old and in his short time on this planet has never been in a home long enough to be able to call it home an indictment of the culture for amenable, changeable dogs that are to all intents and purposes, almost human.


This Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross male is now neutered as well as being vaccinated, kennel cough inoculated & chipped and with the powerful body, their are traits of something akin to a Collie or a Jack Russell.


Another of life's stress heads that copes poorly with the kennel environment and we would desperately love to see him settled in a quiet, calm home where ROUTINE and CONSISTENCY will bring out the dog that

we know is right there under the busy façade.


Been out twice and come back for reasons not of his own making.


I would place him quite highly on our scale at around a 7 so not for the faint hearted or inexperienced but a reward awaits anyone who can put their mind to loving this boy and can live alongside another dog

with a little patience, hard work and endeavor but not one for a home with young children or other forms of wildlife

ROSSCO is a neutered male Patterdale cross who has come to us at 2.5 years old from his previous home through behavior that could not be rectified.


It was clear early doors that he has probably been allowed to get away with a lot of behavior and has gone with displays of aggression as a form of defence.


He is friendly, lively, happy and loves his time out on walks with or without other dogs and aggression that showed it's head very early doors has totally disappeared though I suspect it may manifest itself again with strangers but nothing that can't be overcome.


He needs a confident owner to bring him out of his shell and continue with the work we have done and I am in no doubt a very different dog awaits his new owners than left his old ones.


On our scale I would place him about a 3-4.

ROXY came to us as a private re-home as she was not getting the attention, love and particularly exercise she needed.


Though she was purchased as an "Irish Staffy" by her owners, it is clear that she is in fact a SBT / Beagle Cross.


She is a sweet young lady of just over two years who is lively and friendly but is also quite easily rocked and so not as secure in her own skin as she would have you believe

She has not been socialised with other dogs and so as usual, will act out in bravado when threatened but is happily living alongside other dogs at close quarters without issue.


Though she has only been under our care for 24 hours, assessments early doors would put her at about a 3-4 on our scale.

SKYE is a currently un-neutered, female AKITA.


Four years of age and has come to us through a private re-home.


Vaccinated, kennel cough inoculated & chipped.


Only came in on 10th May and assessments are at an early stage but she has settled well into a stressful environment surrounded by other dogs and has walked well on her limited outings.


No issues experienced thus far.


Can you offer SKYE the home she truly deserves and longs for? Please contact us at


POPPY is a beautiful young cross breed who finds herself in our kennels at the tender age of just 12 months. Who, having been back in our care a month or so, we are now only just releasing for re-homing after getting on top of a skin condition which has reacted very well to minimal treatment and a good diet.


A very low threat, her only problems are frustration and typical puppy behaviors, nipping, jumping etc.


Will make a fantastic addition to most households and can live alongside other dogs.


Playful, loving and mischievous, someone will be very lucky indeed.


On our scale she is around a 3.

OTIS is a neutered male, 6 year old Lakeland Terrier who has come back to us after 3 years in a home.


Many positives personality traits and loves his time with his humans and is affectionate and loving.


Walks well and does love his walkies.

Being a Terrier he does have a tenacious nature which can be intimidating if you have never experienced this side to dog behavior.


Demands a respectful approach from other dogs but as proven in our care, can be at ease in the company of other dogs


Not one for a home with children as he is fearful of their lively nature and not for the faint hearted as prone to negative behavior displays in the settling phase.


On our scale, I would say he is around a
5 or so.


Can you offer OTIS the home he truly deserves and longs for? Please contact us at


LEO – Previously DIESEL, who has come into our care 23-05-17 has now been renamed LEO.


Chipped in 2011 he is around 5-6 years old and is a neutered male SBT cross - likely with a Boxer.


His story – placed in boarding kennels and then abandoned by his owners where he remained for a whole year.


Early assessment have him as a nice natured boy and our scale would pop him at 5 to be on the safe side though assessments are at an early stage.


Can you offer LEO the home he truly deserves and longs for? Please contact us at
