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.

ROSIE
History:
Rosy is keeping her paws crossed to find her third and final home! She has come in to us from a private home where her owners were unable to provide enough mental and physical stimulation for her active little Collie brain, which meant she found other ways to occupy herself such as singing to the neighbours which did not go down well. In her home prior to this she was being left long hours because of working patterns so this poor pup needs to find a paw-fect home! Rosy is a typical active Collie, she loves to be out and about keeping busy - her number one favourite thing is tennis balls! Rosy will do anything and everything for a tennis ball, she loves to fetch and will bring it back to you.. well at least half way to you then lie in wait for you to throw it again! Lead work has come on drastically since she first stepped through the door, now with a firm handler she will walk beautifully to heel but if she is given half the chance she will pull you in the direction she fancies - usually towards the playpen! Rosy loves a cuddle in her kennel, she hates to see you leave and would very much like to find a human who doesn't like to leave her too long either! We would definitely suggest dog training for this little lady, to expand her knowledge and learn her basic commands as she loves to please! We have found that other dogs aren't a priority for her, she has walked round with plenty of dogs and can react to some of the more high energy ones but generally she is looking for the next opportunity to play ball! We would suggest she be the only animal in the home, at least until she's settled into her fur-ever home. No young children due to her bouncy puppy energy and not cat tested.
Description:
Rosie is very active, she certainly needs to be doing a job. We did find a placement in the Fire Service as a search and rescue dog however she failed due to her reaction towards some dogs. She is tennis ball mad. She will do anything for a ball and will retreive all day long! She is very intelligent, picks things up very quickly and loves to please.
Rehoming Criteria:
Secure garden, no children, not cat tested and preferred to be the only dog in the home. She will need to be speyed but £50 will be refunded to owner once done and invoice of procedure received

MOLLY
History:
Molly has lived with her current owner since a puppy and is very much loved. However circumstances at home have changed and Molly isn’t coping well. Molly has a history of resource guarding and a general conflicted-ness exacerbated by stress. Despite preparations made well ahead of time, and the help of a behaviourist, the addition and reality of a new baby in the family is proving too stressful for her. The devastating decision to rehome Molly has not come lightly but her well-being and the safety of younger family members has to come first. Molly's potential home has fallen through so she really needs a home of her own asap.
Description:
Molly is a medium sized (10kg), grey, smart Springer x Poodle. She is extremely affectionate, loving and gives the BEST cuddles. She travels well and can happily spend time at home alone. She is also dog friendly (albeit, slightly wary of very big dogs she doesn’t know). She is physically very healthy. Full vet records available. She loves, and really benefits from, interaction in the form of training. She has excellent foundations in agility, runs pre-comp level course with ease, and could compete once weaves and seesaw are established – almost there with both so this wouldn’t take long. She could also be the perfect obedience, rally or heelwork companion - anything that involves lots of engagement and keeping her mentally stimulated. Molly is very handler focused, food motivated and enjoys a good game of tug.
Rehoming Criteria:
Molly needs a patient, knowledgeable and experienced adult only home. She needs an outlet for her busy brain and would suit a sport home where she would participate in regular positive reinforcement training. She could be rehomed with other steady adult dogs. She has previously lived with a cat but is a bit over interested - a confident, dog-savvy cat would be okay. Our behaviour consultant would be involved in the rehoming process to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible, and a home visit will be included to support Molly and her new home settle in together. If you’re a calm and patient person, with knowledge of positive reinforcement and experience of resource guarding, please get in touch. Please also feel free to get in touch for more information. Currently living in Leeds, West Yorkshire but could travel for a meeting. If a home cannot be found soon, Molly will have to go into a rescue.

LOLLY PUP
History:
Lolly is a wee collie/lurcher babe who arrived at Newport City Dogs Home (local authority pound) as a stray. She does have a microchip, but it hasn't been registered, so the staff have no way of tracing her owners or her breeder. No-one has reported her missing, but obviously if you were Lolly's owner you couldn't help noticing that she's 'disappeared'! So Lolly is an unwanted homeless stray at the tender age of about 14 weeks, which is what the vets have estimated her age to be. Lolly didn't exactly look like a 'much loved pet' when she arrived, her coat was dusty, she had a very distinct 'eau dog dogue' about her, and she was hand shy and unsocialised. Just two weeks in the tender care of the staff and volunteers, and with LOTS of friendly dogs to play with and learn from have transformed Lolly from an anxious little babe into a VERY happy if over-confident little lady who is desperate to make up for lost time! Every day is an adventure for Lolly! As she is a little bit on the back paw regarding her early days training, she will need a very hands on and experienced collie owner to help her learn some of the good dog behaviours she lacks. Lolly will need help learning how to walk on lead, and she won't be winning any medals for domestic goddess anytime soon! Lolly has obviously had to sleep and toilet in a confined space since her earliest days, and she is going to need a little extra help with her toiletting habits. Lolly won't be rehomers to first timers, and the staff would love an active home for her, ideally with a lively interest in agility, flyball, or similar and with a well-mannered adult dog to help Lolly learn the good-dog rules!
Description:
Lolly is a young, black & white collie x lurcher. The vets estimate her age to be about 14-16 weeks. She is friendly and playful with other dogs but needs a mature companion. Lolly behaves well around one of her mature dog companions who doesn't put up with her puppy nonsense, but she does torment some of the younger less experienced dogs, and this has tipped over into puppy spats. Lolly is very bright and clever, loves people and we think she needs an active experienced home where she will be kept busy and out of trouble.
Rehoming Criteria:
A collie experienced home with a safe gardehn, preferably with an older dog in the household. A first class veterinary reference will be required. Lolly can be rehomed with children provided the parents are sensible enough to understand that she is just a puppy, and when she's over-excited she will 'puppy nip'

JOE
History:
Joe was trained as a working sheep dog but, as he showed no interest, he was rehomed. He has been in his new home for two weeks, but his new owner has underestimated the needs of this particular breed and is unable to give him the mental and physical stimulation he needs. He’s as yet not housetrained, but my feeling is that this will be learnt very quickly given the right guidance.
Description:
Joe is black and white collie with a semi long coat. As a professional dog walker, I’ve walked Joe a number of times and have found him good natured and very responsive to commands. He loves the freedom of an open space, and will do anything for a ball. His recall seems good, even with the distraction of other dogs, and he’s shown no signs of aggression to any dogs he’s met. Off lead he shows good distance attention, having put him down close and at a distance, where he’ll stay until commanded to return. Born an bred as a farm dog Joe has only lived in a house for two weeks.
Rehoming Criteria:
I think Joe could have some real potential as an agility dog for someone familiar with the breed who was able to commit to ongoing training (including house training).
