Adopt a dog


Microchipped and Vaccinated

Lovely young lady Tessa is looking for her forever home.

Being an adolescent, Tessa has still got some learning and training to do, so any potential new owner will need to bear this in mind, and be prepared to take on the responsibility.

Tessa does tend to pull quite a bit on the lead and does need to learn some lead manners. She is eager to meet new people and has a habit of jumping up at people passing by.

A large enclosed garden would be beneficial, where she can wear off her excess energy, but an active home would be a must.

We feel due to Tessa being so energetic she would be suited to live with kids 10+.  She has lived with cats and we feel that with a successful introduction she may be able to live with another dog.

She is an extremely loving dog who does like to get her belly rubbed.  If you think you can offer Tessa a loving new home please contact the office directly on 01224 208989 or click on “Request to adopt Tessa now”.

I will be happy to have a home. Are you sure I'm right for you?
