Bracken Male American Bulldog cross

Bracken is a lovable 7yr old American bull dog cross. Unfortunately we do not know his history as he came from the pound but he is playful, cheeky and loves his belly rubbed and a good scratch from his human companion.

Bracken loves meeting people and will always enjoy a fuss.  Because of his size and unknown history we would recommend older children only he has made it clear he is not keen on loud voices.

Bracken will walk with most dogs and will play with other dogs too, however, he is full on so it would need to be a strong tolerant dog and we think he would be better in a home of his own.

Although Bracken is a big strong dog he takes treats  and food very nicely.

Bracken can walk really well when there are no distractions but would benefit from ongoing training.

We are looking for a special home for him with someone who is used to strong, large breeds and can help him reach his potential.…read more

Lilly Female Rottweiler cross

Lilly is a 4 year old Rottweiler cross.  She is a highly intelligent dog, who needs a special home with an experienced, sensible owner;  ideally someone who has an active outdoor life and needs a dog to accompany them.    She might also be suitable for scent work as she is not large, and learns fast.
She came to us from the pound and we have had her about a year.       She has been homed twice, and returned twice.   Obviously we do not know what her life was like before she arrived at the pound, but we think maybe she was kept outside, or perhaps put outside at night and maybe sometimes during the day as she can be destructive when left, but in time and once she has settled we are sure that this would not continue to be a problem.    This is why we are looking for a home where she would be a companion dog.
She was very worried about getting into a car, but now with patience and perseverance, she travels quite happily.   She was also extremely unsure about walking on a lead, and would suddenly stop and refuse to move, so it took time for her to appreciate that a walk was a “good thing”!
Her training will be ongoing as she knew very little when she came to us and has obviously suffered setbacks being moved around.   She is very affectionate and loves a fuss, but gets very excited with toys and balls, so play is limited and training games are best.   And she has occasional mood swings which maybe to do with her previous life.
She walks with our other dogs and is fine, but can react to strange dogs if they push into her, especially if they bark at her.

Lilly settles well at night and has not been upset by fireworks. 

We think that she would be best suited to a one or two person adult home.

Jeff Male Collie x Terrier

Hi, my name is Jeff and I am a 5 year old Collie x Terrier.  I am a super boy when I know you,  but can be anxious with new people and loud noises at present, but that won’t take me too long as I have already come on very well.
I love long walks and like to stop and sniff . I am good on the lead but can be a little stubborn if the smells are good.  I also like to play ball and am trying to learn to give it back.  I know most basic commands.
I have been moved around so will need my new home to be patient with me and I will then make a very loyal and loving friend.
My ideal home would be where I am not left alone for long as I worry that my human won’t come back.  I do not mind older children but they must give me my space and not be noisy. I need a garden to play in and do not want to share with cats or other small furries, after all I am a terrier cross!

He barks at noises from neighbours.

Dobbie has not had a lot of input so will need to go to training classes.

He needs an active home with no cats or small furries.…read more

Daisy Female French Bulldog

Daisy is a 3 year old French Bulldog who has had a terrible start in life. We understand that she was living outdoors and possibly used for breeding until a very kind person rescued her and asked us to help find her a good home.
Daisy is extremely loving with people but will need to be the only pet in her forever home as it would appear she has had no proper socialisation with dogs or any other pets.
When Daisy came into our care she had terrible skin with open sores but has responded well to the treatment given to her.
Daisy really enjoys her food and loves to play ball, although she hasn’t quite realised that it helps to give the ball back and she does walks well on lead as long as there are no other dogs around so she will need an owner who is willing to help her feel more comfortable around other dogs.
If you have the time and patience and are willing to give Daisy the training and socialisation she needs she will be a lovely addition to your family.

Barney – currently with Staffie & Stray Rescue Male JTR x Chihuahua

About Barney

My Name Is… Barney

I Am… 3 years old (4 in May)

I Am… A Jack Russell X Chihuahua

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 Years

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Barney has come from a well loved home and has been in this home since he was a puppy. Due to unforseen circumstances he is now looking for a new home.


Barney is an anxious little boy and has always been nervous since he was a puppy. In his current home where he is comfortable and feels safe, Barney is very loving and affectionate, he loves to be a lap dog too!

He prefers the company of older children, but would prefer to have less fuss until he has gotten to know his new family.

Barney is nervous and wary of meeting new people, prosepctive adopters will need to meet Barney several times before rehoming to make the transition easier for him. Initially Barney will bark at new strangers and cab ne more wary of meeting men. With people he has known for longer periods of time Barney is absolutely fine. Barney’s adopted family will need to take it slow with visitors entering the home initially to ensure than Barney is comfortable.

He doesn’t like having much change to his routine and wouldn’t suit a home where he would need to go on boarding kennels/a dog sitters home/family or friends home when his new owners go on holiday. His current home have spent weeks in the past helping Barney get used to a friends home before going away for the weekend.

In the home, Barney is happy to be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

Barney would love a home where he can be the centre of someone’s world and have lots of cuddles and belly rubs! He will attach to his caregiver and never leave thier side!


Due to past experiences, Barney is very anxious around other dogs, especially larger dogs. He is walked in areas where all dogs must be kept on leads to avoid face to face interactions which make Barney very nervous.


I am looking for:

  • A pet free home
  • A quiet and calm home who are willing to meet be several times before rehoming to help me settle
  • A home where children are older
  • A home that are happy to keep me on lead and walk me in quieter, less dog populated areas.


Please have a read through on the following link to see how we are working and the current restrictions that we have in place for applicants. https://staffieandstrayrescue.co.uk/news/information-on-how-we-are-working-through-the-coronavirus-pandemic

Please contact the rescue if you can offer Barney forever home.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Basil Male JRT cross

Basil is an 11 year old Jack Russell cross.  He needs an experienced,  sensible owner and a home with no children.   Basil is very much a senior citizen so likes peace and quiet and not to be over fussed.
He loves his walks and enjoys his food – can you provide that sort of home for a gentleman in his last few years?
