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.

MONTY
History:
Monty came to us as his owners felt like they couldn't give him enough time.
Description:
Monty is black and white. He's got quite long legs at the moment! He's a busy collie and super active. He really loves to learn. Monty is a a sensitive chap and will need some confidence building work.
Rehoming Criteria:
Monty really needs to have a training-minded owner. He could live with teenagers and adults or another dog. He will need a secure garden, away from passing traffic. He can be left home alone for a little while once settled and cannot live with cats.

DUKIE
History:
No history provided.
Description:
Dukie is a lovely black and white collie. Though he is six years old, he is still active. He is a happy boy who is in his element when he's mucky and dirty! He really loves to explore the great outdoors and race around off lead, and it's here that we really see how confident he can be. He is a little worried by new people at times, but once he's used to you, he's always excited to see you. Dog friendly.
Rehoming Criteria:
Dukie loves the company of other dogs and can be very tolerant of some of the livelier pups! He could certainly live with another dog, but toys would have to be brought out at particular times, as he doesn't like to share. Dukie can live with children aged 16 and over, as he can be very protective of his bowl at feeding time.

SAMSON
History:
Samson was given up by his owner but we have no history for him. He was handed over to an organisation in Ireland.
Description:
Samson is such a fun dog to be around. He always seems to be smiling and he loves to play. He likes to herd the other dogs and put them in their correct place, and they're very tolerant of him! He is mostly black with some white, very sociable and friendly boy. He's only two years old but he looks much older, but he's definitely a youthful boy. Strong collie traits, likes to organise the other dogs.
Rehoming Criteria:
We're looking for someone with collie experience for Samson as his collie traits are very strong. He has a need to herd and chase other animals, so may be better in a rural home. For the same reason, he would need to live in a home where any children are over 16 years, due to his collie nipping and lack of history.

LOKI
History:
Loki is a very anxious dog and shows signs of fear aggression, and it's gone past our ability to re-train him ourselves. We lack the experience to know how to properly train him and have lost any confidence we had in him to follow through with the training and start the process of helping him get his own confidence back, and we think it's the best for him and us that we sadly give him up. Behaviourist's initial assessment is that that there's a very good chance he can be retrained with the right amount of time, attention and professional training that we unfortunately cannot give him. He started to bite initially when we tried to give him flea drop treatment but it's slowly grown and progressed to the stage where, when he's laid on or next to us and we try to stroke him, he reacts.
Description:
Loki is a very pretty chocolate cockerpoo, nearly 2 years old. He's really affectionate, always welcomes us back from work with kisses and waggy tail and generally loves being around us, following us everywhere. He understands basic training really well and will sit, stay, lay down and play fetch, and appears happy when we are around as long as we don't stroke him. He plays fetch and tug of war. Loves a good game or two. Loves going on walks but currently hates cyclists and 50% of dogs, it's mainly male dogs he has an issue with. He will take treats and food from our hands but seems to have a fear factor of hands touching him. He just doesn't like being stroked.
Rehoming Criteria:
Loki is looking for an active home and owners with plenty of experience and confidence to give him a chance to become a confident dog again. He will need careful socialising with other dogs as this was missed out in his early training. He has a lovely nature and is very active.

DONNY
History:
Donny is a high energy little chap whose his owner did not have time for him.
Description:
Donny is a confident little guy and travels well in the car. He need some basic training, but is very bright. He loves to run around and leap on and off the furniture. He's responsive to training and would love to learn lots of new tricks. He's got lots of energy and agility would make a good outlet for that. He's tiny (4kg) so would make a perfect small agility dog.
Rehoming Criteria:
Donny can live with teenagers, he needs an enclosed garden and needs to be the only pet currently. He will need training to be home alone and he will need house training. Donny will be neutered before going to his new home.

BOMBADIL
History:
We have had Bombadil since he was a puppy. He is very much loved and the decision to rehome him has been very difficult. He currently lives with a Jack Russell and a cat. Unfortunately he is very nervous of children and, since our toddler has started moving, he has been struggling and becoming more anxious. We feel he would be much happier in a different home.
Description:
Bombadil is a medium-sized black and white collie with tan cheeks. He has been doing agility training for about one year where he has progressed well and very much enjoys. He is a friendly and very intelligent dog and has very good general obedience. He has been to obedience classes since he was a puppy and is a very fast learner. We have been seeing a behaviourist with him due to his fear of children and cars and, although good progress has been made, these will need good management. He has a strong fear of cars and will bark at and try to chase them. We find this quite easy to manage and he does travel well in a car. The training exercises the behaviourist has shown us are to help to build his confidence around cars and children.
Rehoming Criteria:
Bombadil needs a home with no children with an experienced and committed owner who will spend time walking him and providing mental stimulation though training, which he enjoys.

SCOUT
History:
Scout has lived in a home with children in the past but we feel he may be better suited to a more mature family ideally in a rural setting.
Description:
Scout is fully house-trained knows basic commands and loves to play with toys. He really wants to please you. He's not had much socialisation with other dogs so he can find it hard to read their body signals and know what to do so his new owner would need to be aware of this and happy to take him on knowing he needed some help in this area. We have tested him with dogs at the centre and he tended to lie down and not really know what to do but was not aggressive. His previous owners did say then out on walks he could become vocal with other dogs but never tried to bite one.
Rehoming Criteria:
Scout is looking for a home where he will be able to live up to his full potential as a clever intelligent collie. ideally it would be nice for him to go to a home where he could do something like agility so he can use his brain and energy on something positive. If you would be interested in taking on Scout, please get in touch. Scout is currently finishing off his observations so will be available for adoption very soon.

TY
History:
Ty came into us from a loving home when sadly his owners had a change of circumstances and were unable to keep him any longer.
Description:
Ty is a superstar of a collie! He is a really nice boy who is house trained, well behaved in the home and does not go on furniture or upstairs. He walks well on a lead and gets on well with other dogs. Ty knows lots of commands and will sit and do down wait and knows his own name (plus much much more). He is in good health and is a very good boy for the vet.
Rehoming Criteria:
Ty is friendly with children and would make a wonderful family dog he is very confident and is fine in most situations.

FREYA
History:
Freya was rescued as a pup and adopted by a family. At the time the family were told she was not very cat friendly but they then decided after having her for 18 months to rehome 5 cats and Freya had to go. Leash of Life have a back up adoption plan so she came back into their care and had to go into Kennels as no foster carer was available at such short notice. She became very depressed and confused until her current foster mum stepped in to help her.
Description:
Freya is 2yrs old and as soon as she arrived back into the rescues care it was very clear she had not been socialist or trained in any way. She has since learned some simple commands and is able to walk to heal on short lead without pulling and is currently working on her recall. She can get very over excited when out as she has not experienced some things and the world is very new to her. She has bags of energy and loves to please she is able to learn very quickly and we think she would make a great agility dog.
Rehoming Criteria:
She will need to be rehomed with an experienced handler who would be able to continue her training. She is currently living happily with other dogs and would suit a calm K9 companion to sure her manners. If housed as only dog she will need someone around a lot as she is currently able to be left for short periods.

OSCAR
History:
Oscar is a lively, young collie who has been handed in to our care at Dogs Trust Bridgend.
Description:
He is a handsome chap with bags of character. He is a medium sized collie who is white and black. He is a bright boy and always eager to learn, he loves his food and toys which is a good motivator for him in particular toys. Here at the Centre we are currently working on his social skills with other dogs and distractions on lead. He is typical of the breed and does have a high chase drive. Oscar would be an ideal candidate for agility as he has already started showing heaps of potential and is extremely agile and always aims to please. We feel he would also do well at flyball due to his high motivation for toys. He is a loving boy and will make a superstar in the right home.
Rehoming Criteria:
Oscar is looking for an active home where he will get plenty of physical and mental stimulation. He would love a home where he has a job to do such as agility or fly ball. He is looking for an adult only home without any small furries or cats due to his high chase drive. He would prefer to be the only dog in the home to have all the attention on him. He has shown low level guarding over items that are important to him. However, we are currently working on swaps with him. He would suit an experienced home who are use to the breed and their traits.
