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.

BOBBY
History:
Bobby is a bright active Collie x pup, we don't have much history on his background, but we know he came from a working farm background.
Description:
Bobby is bright, active and quick to pick new things. He loves a good run off lead and mixes well with dogs. He can be a little worried around men so continued work on this in the home to gradually introduce him would be needed. He loves food and loves his toys. He would thrive in a agility home.
Rehoming Criteria:
We are looking for an experienced home for Bobby with owners that have owned high energy breed level previously. He will need to live with another dog/dogs in the house already. He would benefit from further training. All his training will need to be positive and reward based.

BERTIE
History:
Bertie was found as a stray in Spain. He was fostered in Spain with a large assortment of different dogs where he was kept safe until he could travel to foster to UK. He has now been in a family foster home for one month, living with two other dogs, two cats and an 8 year old child. The family works part time too so used to being left for short periods.
Description:
Bertie is a lovely scruffy Lurcher boy, Galgo (Spanish Greyhound) x Catalan Sheepdog who is doing well in his foster home. He's still only a baby and he has only just lost his baby teeth. He is an active boy who like most puppies gets bored easily that is why we think he would a busy active agility home with other dogs, A very affectionate dog, he is outgoing and very cheeky often making his own entertainment up i.e. helping with the recycling, has taken a cooked chicken off the work top. Here are some videos of him . Out walking at weekend - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hV6hZIUfY6o , Relaxing at home trying to get the other dog to play - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gne0gXFBB8 , Bertie playing football https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwYzI55Pc_I , Having cuddles with his foster sister - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHS-AFnIlEg and walking with her - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTv4YWHBRFw . Being silly with the water turn the sound up- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdW0iRFbgtg
Rehoming Criteria:
For a young dog, Bertie has massive potential but we are struggling to find the right home as he gets a lot of interest because of his looks but not the right home. We are looking for an active, experienced home to guide this puppy into adulthood. He is too young to be neutered so will be expected to be done as part of the adoption agreement. We have to ask the higher fee to help towards his travel and passport costs.

LOKI
History:
Loki has come into Hope Rescue directly from the pound after completing his seven days. He has been transferred to thr Blue Cross Rehoming Centre.
Description:
Loki is a black and white, medium coated WSD. He is a young dog with a massive amount of potential for the right home. He mixes well and could live with another dog/dogs. He is currently underweight and is very 'foody'. High value treats blow his mind a bit at the moment but he will work for low value food, toys and praise. He enjoys a fuss (when not busy elsewhere!) and has been good being handled during a vet visit. He is managing in the kennels but I am keen to find a suitable home as soon as possible as this sort of environment really doesn't suit young, active working type dogs!
Rehoming Criteria:
Loki could live with children and cats as long as the home is right and will keep him mentally and physically stimulated as he could go self employed and find his own entertainment otherwise! Loki really does have the potential to be a total star and will make a really super companion for someone who understands the needs of a young BC. We are happy to adopt anywhere in the UK, as long as new owners willing to travel to us to meet Loki.

JAIME
History:
Sadly Jaime was surrendered to us when he was just 10 months old due to family illness. He has now been in kennels for two months and we are working with him to overcome some of his behaviour which we see in many collies i.e. jumping, mouthing/nipping and a great desire to chase cars.
Description:
Jaime is a liver and white Border Collie. Sadly he was given to the family as a puppy who due to illness had no time to train him. He is extremely nervous of men and will lunge and bark at them until he knows them. A treat or a toy son turns him into the big puppy that he is. We have had shown him the agility equipment and he raced around like the pup he is and thoroughly enjoyed himself. His is a blank canvass just waiting for that right person
Rehoming Criteria:
Jaime is a great dog once you get to know him and, in experienced hands, he is going to make a fabulous companion. He is a firm favourite in the kennels and loves his cuddles and play. We feel he would be well suited to an experienced collie home who can continue his socialisation and training plus help to build his confidence as much of his behaviour is fear related. Although he has lived with two young boys, he still does have a tendency to mouth quite hard and jump and so we would recommend an adult home only. Check out our website and Facebook page to see more images of him. By appointment only as in commercial kennels. Please complete our online application form or ring 01769 560878 for an initial chat.

LYLA
History:
Lyla is a beautiful and exceptionally affectionate one year old. Unfortunately, she requires more space and exercise than her elderly, and now somewhat arthritic, owners can provide.
Description:
She is a beautiful cross between a Black Labrador and a Husky. The top half is mainly Labrador and the bottom half mainly Husky, but with lovely markings. She has a wonderful temperament and is extremely affectionate. She loves to run and has boundless energy. She is around 23kg. We intend to have her spayed on 8th May. She is fully house trained and wants to please, but requires some additional obedience training. She loves human and canine company. She never barks.
Rehoming Criteria:
We need to find her a permanent home with owners who appreciate her and can provide her with a more suitable environment and plenty of exercise.

LUNA

Little Luna was saved from a public shelter in Romania. She had a home offer but sadly this as not worked out as one of the lady's other dogs did not get on with her and was causing some difficulties. She is currently in a foster home with other dogs and birds
Description:
Luna is a small happy go lucky collie type - affectionate and very obedient. She learns very quickly. There are lots of pics and videos doing her puppy agility. She has a pet passport.
Rehoming Criteria:
Her new home must have fully enclosed garden and not in full time work. A working type home would be ideal as she loves to work and please. She can be seen in her foster home.

ROBBIE
History:
Robbie came to the UK from Romania in June 2016, aged 6 months. He was a very nervous pup having been caught by the dog catchers and rebounding in and out of the shelters. Through no fault of his, Robbie found himself looking for a new home earlier this year he came into foster with me a very scared, frightened and over weight boy. He is now fit, happy, and ready to go to a forever home of his own.
Description:
Smooth coated, plain brown, collie sized, mixed breed unknown. Robbie has started foundation agility training and is taking to it really well. He is good with children of all ages, people and has no issues with other dogs. He is able to be left for short periods of time with the company of our other dogs so would ideally be best homes with at least one other dog
Rehoming Criteria:
We are looking for an active home for Robbie with someone used to rescue dogs and who is willing to give Robbie time to adjust and settle. He has gone through so many upheavals and needs time to learn to trust. Anyone who gives Robbie a chance will not be disappointed as he is the most loving, loyal, willing dog I have ever fostered. Home check and adoption fee apply. Robbie is being fostered in the North West but arrangements can be made to travel to meet if the right person comes along.

BUDDY
History:
I have known Buddy since he was a pup. Initially he came to my club for obedience training but found the hall too stimulating. At six months old, his owners asked me about rehoming him as they were not coping but then they changed their minds. Around three months ago I started walking Bud once a week or so. I worked on impulse control and we were able to walk with the rest of my dog family. In these short sessions, Buddy learned to be a dog who could have fun without pressure. There are videos of these sessions on Kytoc K9's FB page. A week ago his owners told me they couldn't keep him any more. They were unable to walk him on lead as he would lunge and scream at everything and everyone. They could not take him off lead as he wouldn't come back and would herd and bite other dogs. None of this happens with me. Don't get me wrong. Buddy is not a dog for the faint hearted. He needs you to watch him. For instance, if a cyclist comes he mostly ignores them but, if he stiffens, you just call him and he is with you. His owners loved him but had emotional things going on in their lives which meant buddy was not getting what he needed.
Description:
Buddy is quite a dark black and white finely boned and light footed collie. Although a male, he is fine and not at all heavy. He would measure Large for agility. I am working on mostly impulse with Buddy and really just allowing him to learn the 'rules' of the house at this time. He is very herdy but I have had him around agility rings and he would rather concentrate on me and what I want from him. Bud wants to please. He has no release cue as yet from his ball but, if he sees me working my dogs, he will give his ball up just so he can join in. This has been done by putting no pressure on him at all. Buddy will work for food, toys or ball. He shows complete respect for all of my dogs. Although initially he was desperate to chase my cats it only took four days for him to ignore them. I took him to Greenham Common this week where there were other dogs, kids, joggers, cyclists and, of course, cows and you would not have known it!! I have only had Buddy for a week 17/04 so have not pushed him too hard as yet but, as time goes on. I will ask more from him and all will be put on Kytoc K9's page
Rehoming Criteria:
No young children, under 10. Children over 10 only if they are dog savvy. I say this only because the excitement level would be too much and would go against all he is learning right now. I would expect anyone interested to fill out a questionnaire. Viewing by appointment only.
