Adopt a dog

We run an appointments system where interested parties are invited to meet a particular cat or dog where mutual compatibility has been agreed. Alternatively, visitors are welcome to look around on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 10am to 2pm to view dogs, and 11am to 2pm to view cats.

About Otter

  • Cheeky like a puppy is!
  • A chatter box
  • An adult only home 
  • I could potentially live with another compatible dog
  • I can be very worried of the world but am gradually learning to be more confident

‘Optimistic Otter’ here! Slowly but gradually coming out of my shell and getting used to the big wide world of fun and love! Food and toys are the way to my heart, but neither last long so I do need supervision as I will entertain myself when left. A great travel companion, so I am ready for those holidays together but somewhere quiet to continue my introduction to new people and other dogs would be best.

I crave attention and do want to be loved but this will take time and a patient and calm owner who knows my breed and that I can be a little vocal and mischievous at times! I do require on lead exercise as I can be worried of new noises and I’ll be off as quick as a flash and a large secure garden to call my own which I can explore in.

I could potentially live with a compatible canine however I can be a little over the top and enthusiastic which not all dogs like so they would have to be of a similar energy level as me and around adult companionship.
