Each year thousands of unwanted dogs end up in rescue centres, many because of their high energy levels. As this is a quality we value in agility, we believe many would make super agility dogs. So if you are looking for another agility dog, think about giving one of these dogs a second chance. We promise to keep a dog on this page for at least six weeks or until we hear that it has been rehomed. Whenever possible we will let you know where the dog has gone via the Happy Endings page. If you have a dog that you think would make a good agility or flyball dog, you can add it to the page direct by using the online entry form here. Dogs must have a photo to be listed. All we ask is that you let us know when the dog has been rehomed as there are many more dogs waiting to be listed.

This is a free service to private individuals who cannot cope with their dogs any more for whatever reason and for rescue organisations. Please note that while this is a free service, rescue organisations may ask for a standard donation to continue their work.

PHIL TUFNELL
History:
Phil arrived with us with very little background information. He is a fabulous dog with so much potential and a real zest for life!
Description:
Phil is a liver and white Springer. He is very outgoing and a lot of fun! He will need a home where he will receive full training (including house training)but due to his zest for life and his intelligence this should not take too long. He loves food and will also work for a ball. He does need some work on the lead as he does sometimes forget you are at the end of the lead! He is a very loving boy and will do anything to please. He is amazing with other dogs and will happily live amongst others.
Rehoming Criteria:
Phil's ideal home would have no children under 7 years of age and no small animals (cats etc). He wil need someone with plenty of time to dedicate to training. He would like to live with other dogs pending introductions. He cannot live in Luton. If you have a genuine interest in rehoming an Appledown dog, please make sure you have read and understood the criteria in each album. You will need to contact the kennels between 10am-4pm.

PEGGY
History:
Peggy is just as Peggy looks - a little livewire of a girl, always on the go and most definitely not a lapdog. She finds herself looking for a new home because she proved to be a skilled escape artist, but such a fabulous little character, she is without doubt worth paying the extra £s needed for the strongest, most bullet proof fences! Friendly with everyone she meets and great with other dogs, she doesn't want to live with cats and needs further work on house-training and travelling. Peggy would like a very active household, where she can be involved in family life and allowed to be the true terrier she is. PEGGY'S IDEAL HOME - cannot live in Luton - could live with another dog pending introductions - no cats - secure surroundings - ongoing training, including house-training - children over 7 years - very active - can be left for a couple of hours once settled and exercised well beforehand - continued care and stability for the rest of his days (average 13 - 16 years+) IF YOU HAVE A GENUINE INTEREST IN REHOMING AN APPLEDOWN DOG, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE CRITERIA LISTED IN EACH ALBUM. YOU WILL THEN NEED TO CONTACT THE KENNELS ON 01525 220383, 10am - 4pm. WE DO NOT USE MESSENGER FOR KENNELS/DOG QUESTIONS.
Description:
Peggy is a very active, small black and tan, smooth-coated terrier mix. She will be a wonderful addition to an active household. An active home would be ideal.. She thrives on praise and will work for food. She is a quick little dog who has so much potential!

STITCH
History:
Stitch was born May 17th 2017 from my favortie bitch, Tweed. She has been an entertaining, confident girl from birth. I kept her to do Agility along with her mother. To this end, from the age of six months, Stitch has been to Agility classes to get used to the idea. She is obviously only jumping low poles at class, but on occasion at home has jumped fences with ease. I am gutted to rehome her, but have been diagnosed with an incurable cancer and, above all, I want to be fair to her.
Description:
Stitch is a gorgeous long coated lurcher with an affectionate and faultless temperament. She is a generous, enthusiastic girl who is very energetic. She loves doing agility it and is confident with all the equipment though she has not encountered the see-saw yet. Stitch loves children, people and is friendly with other dogs. She lives with three other dogs - two lurchers and a Border Terrier. We do not have cats so I would be very careful there. She understands that she is not allowed to chase birds (chickens, pheasants etc..), but occasionally tests my resolve. Stitch has been taken out with me on my bike and remains on the lead to run alongside and behaves well. She has been taken into town, in and out of shops and in cafes while we eat. She lies under the table with no trouble. Stitch is very alert, very fast and will chase if she gets the opportunity. However, if she is occupied, she prefers a fully interactive game of frisbee, ball playing or gardening. Stitch is a large dog and will make around maybe 27in at the shoulder. She is strong and weighs around the 26kg mark. She is almost through the chewing stage, but adores leather, shoes etc if they are left around.
Rehoming Criteria:
I have not rehomed a dog before so I am looking for someone special who understands lurchers. She is a sighthound and this must be taken seriously. Stitch is a gorgeous dog in every respect so deserves the best. She must have an attentive, sporty home as she is full of life all of the time. I am looking for a loving home where she will continue agility and maybe Cani-X She is used to being walked in a lightweight plastic mask and will chase deer, hare etc if she is given the opportunity. I do not want her coursing. I would like her to have a home with at least one other dog as she has never been on her own before. She can be seen at home with her mum and granny where any more questions can be answered.

BLUE
History:
Blue came into our care as his elderly owner was completely unable to cope with a four month old puppy. He is currently in foster with both children and another dog,
Description:
What can you say about a puppy really – Blue is excitable and boisterous. He has lots and lots of learning to do. Some manners and boundaries are being established. He also has lots and lots of training to do, needs lots and lots of time and patience, with lots and lots of stimulation – together with a balance of down time too – just like having a toddler again! That said he is lovely and isn’t too badly behaved. Since coming into our care he has had lots of new experiences, is house trained, been fine with the children and other dogs and walks well on lead – not yet off lead and will require training in this area. He is great meeting new people and travels well in the car.
Rehoming Criteria:
New owners must be fit and activ and have experience of Border Collies. They should have the time to spend with Blue regarding training, have a secure garden and the house large enough to accommodate a dog. Donation to pay.
