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.

DAISY
History:
Daisy was sold to an elderly couple who couldn't cope with her and they took her to the vet to have her put to sleep. Can you believe the owners wanted that puppy killed! The vet got the couple to sign her over to us. We have had her since 15th March 2017.
Description:
Daiy is a silver or grey Miniature Poodle, 13.5 inches at the shoulder. She is house trained but not obedience trained, though she starts training lessons with us next week. She is good with other dogs, cats and young children. She enjoys playing with children. She does not like being crated. It scares her. Once she is in she is okay, but it's the fear of the door being shut. Daisy loves the trampolene, climbing up high on furniture. She is bouncy and full of energy and full of fun. All of this needs direction and agility would suit her as she loves to please, too!
Rehoming Criteria:
We have a contract which means that she is to be returned to us if there is any problem in keeping her... this is life long. The contract also stipulates what care of the dogs we expect. The new home would have to sign and agree to these terms. We have no rigid criteria and judge each home is judged on its merits. All our dogs come with insurance and we prefer the new home to keep this up though it is up to them. We have no upper age limit for the new carer but this dog is age appropriate to a person maximum age of 65 years. We do not home to anyone under the age of consent.

CHARLIE
History:
At less than two years old, Charlie is in the kennels for the third time. He was born on a farm and spent the first year of his life in a family home where they were unable to cope with his energy levels and some of the bad habits he unfortunately picked up such as chasing behaviours typical of bored collies. During his time in the kennels we are trying to combat some of these behaviours and so far he has progressed well with traffic. We are also focusing on increasing his obedience skills and again, he is very quick to learn and progressing well.
Description:
Charlie is a young, tri colour working collie. He is quite a small, slender build, perfect for running around an agility arena. He is a wonderfully intelligent dog and needs to be in an environment where this will be used, be it working in a small holding, agility or fly ball. He has little experience in any of these fields but the drive is in him. He is very quick to learn and will work for both food and toys so is easy to train. He is an affectionate soul and loves a cuddle but he will chase/lunge at passing traffic, bicycles and joggers. He has lived in family homes and loves the affection, but he needs to be worked in some form or another.
Rehoming Criteria:
Try as we might, however, we feel that Charlie doesn't really belong in a normal family home. As previously stated, Charlie is a highly intelligent dog and he needs to use it. He is good with other dogs and can live them, he can be quite playful so would need another playful dog. He is good with children but may be better living with older children/teenagers as he gets a little over excited. He will chase cats. Our main criteria for Charlie is to go to someone who will work his brain. He has met sheep and showed a strong instinct to herd them. Although he has no training for this, he could possibly be used to work a small holding if trained up. He would be great to be trained up for agility or flyball. He needs an active home with someone with strong working collie experience.

ARAGORN
History:
Aragorn was handed into our rescue by his previous owner.
Description:
Aragorn is a handsome Malinois X who carries all the traits of a Malinois. He is full of beans and loves learning new things. He will thrive in a home where he can do a job and have plenty of mental stimulation.
Rehoming Criteria:
Very striking, Aragorn is looking for a new home where there is someone experienced with his breed and willing to commit time and energy to his socialisation. He is somewhat bewildered by everything going on around him at present and just wants to be right away in the background. He needs help to gain confidence and become the happy, settled boy that is in there desperate to come out. Partly house-trained, he lacks confidence around other dogs, but is improving. Aragon's ideal home is with someone with the knowledge of this working breed and committed to training, socialisation and building his confidence. Children must be a minimum of 13 years of age

LUMIYA
History:
Lumiya was found as stray as came to us via the dog warden
Description:
Ear, ear, it's Lumiya, a very lively whirlwind of a girl, full of energy, but very affectionate, and when she wasn't looning around, she stood very close to us (with her paw firmly fixed to Jane's foot!). She is a striking black GSD with tan legs. She has fabulous ears and is rather unusual looking! A total rough diamond.
Rehoming Criteria:
Lumiya will need her new owner to be experienced and totally committed to training her, going right from the basics, but she has so much potential. She will enjoy lots of exercise and mental stimulation, and in return for all this, she will be a loving, loyal companion. They will need to be patient and committed to training, starting with basics including house-training. Cannot be left alone to start, though this will need buidling up slowly. Children in teenage years. Yumiya cannot live in Luton.

SAM (AKA SAMMY)
History:
Sammy is in need of a forever home, at just 14 months old he’s on his third home. This is no reflection on his character because he is a smashing little Collie! Sadly due to a change in my circumstances, I am unable to meet his needs any longer and now work Monday to Friday 9-5. Sam deserves the best which I cannot give him. His life started on a farm in west Wales. He was brought to herd sheep but was deemed to 'friendly' with them. He then had a short stay on a small holding with a family and three other dogs. Sadly the family were unable to manage four dogs and rehomed Sammy with myself.
Description:
Sammy is a handsome boy, black and white and on the smaller size for a Collie. He is very affectionate and prefers humans over playing with other dogs. He will chase a ball all day long and loves catching it mid-air... he’s actually really good at it. Sammy has completed the five week 'life skills' course with Dogs Trust. It was here I was told he would make a great agility dog. He demonstrated excellent attention, focus and a real willingness to learn. It was my intention to start agility with Sam, but I no longer have the time to commit to this. I would love him to have the opportunity to fulfil his potential. Sam knows all basic commands and has good impulse control, he is a pleasure to train. He also really loves toys and games, I make games for him currently to alleviate boredom when I'm at work.
Rehoming Criteria:
Sammy needs anexperienced Collie owner. He is high energy dog and will do best with the intention of using him for agility or another job. Although he is not a yard dog and should be part of family, he loves a cuddle and doesn't like being left outside-he thinks he's missing something. Must not be left on own for long periods of time, he becomes bored and will chew to distract himself. Sam has been around children aged 1 and 6 with no issues, but this has been for a short time only, therefore, I am not be able to say for certain how he would respond living with them. I am happy to provide additional photos.

LANDO
History:
Lando was found as a stray and brought into us via the dog warden.
Description:
Lando is a very pretty male collie who is black with white and black socks. He is your typical young collie who thrives on praise and just wants to please. Lando would like you to know that he is a typical young border collie and would love his new owner to understand this and be happy to work with all his wonderful collie traits. He is super affectionate, very sweet natured and would love to do some agility work because he knows collies are at their best when brain and body are put to use. Oh, and he is a bit of a stunner! Can't fault him!
Rehoming Criteria:
Lando'sideal home is not in Luton, new owner(s) committed to training him and giving him everything a collie needs to stay happy and healthy, only children over 7 years. He could live with another dog pending introductions, other pets unknown. He needs stability and continued care for the rest of his days.

JASPER
History:
Jasper was rescued from the kill pound (the perrara) in Gran Canaria, by Pet Pals GC. After preparation for foster/adoption, he was sent to foster with me in UK. He has been with me for just over a week.
Description:
Jasper is a blonde, normally long-haired dog. He had to have his coat shaved because it was a stinking matted mess when he was found. He is still very skinny but is slowly gaining condition, although he will never be a fat dog. He is a little bundle of energy and will play will his ball or any other toy for hours, a real Duracel Bunny! He loves chasing his ball but is almost as happy throwing it for himself. He is very bright, eager and quick to learn. He is also very affectionate and loves a cuddle. He has a full current Pet Passport. . He has his own Facebook page called Jasper's Page where there are more pictures of him.
Rehoming Criteria:
Jasper deserves a loving home where his true potential will be realised. He is still a baby and needs ongoing training to keep his mind and body active. He gets on well with other dogs but wouldn't recommend he was homed with cats. His adoption is subject to a homecheck and adoption fee which goes towards the cost of removing him from the Perrara, all vaccinations, castration, flea/worming, kennelling costs in rescue, transportation fees to the UK.

ASHA & WILLOW
History:
Asha and Willow came to us originally due to their owners working longer hours.
Description:
Both girls are large, strong dogs. Asha is a rich chocolate brown colour and Willow is a grey colour with white on her chest. They are active, clever girls that need an outlet for their energy! Willow is lacking in confidence and will need some training.
Rehoming Criteria:
We are looking for a training minded home with people who can continue to build Willows confidence and both girls' basic training. They are strong girls and will need a home with multiple carers as one person will struggle to walk them! They will need a secure area for off lead exercise. Please contact us for further information.

ZEENA
History:
Zeena came into our care due to her owner no longer being able to care for her. She is currently in foster in the Worcestershire area.
Description:
Zeena is a stunning brindle crossbreed - possibly Mastiff X. She is a big bouncy girl, and would love an active home such as Agility or Cani-X where she can get the exercise she desperately needs. She is a lovely girl - good with children and other dogs and can live with cats upon careful introductions. Zeena is house trained, crate trained and knows all the basics. She walks well on the lead but can pull at times.
Rehoming Criteria:
Zeena can live with children aged 5+ years, mainly due to the fact she is quite a big girl and can be bouncy at times. She can live with other dogs as well as cats upon careful introductions. A meet and greet can be arranged.

He was helped by Hope for Podencos to come over from the high kill shelter in Gran Canaria and now he is in foster home in Hampshire, UK.

DEWI
History:
Dewi has had limited socialisation as a young pup and is looking for his secure forever home . He is worried by new people and in new situations so will need continued learning and building of his confidence.
Description:
Dewi is a bright dog and has already shown his potential with agility. He loves to do it out in the field with us. He is bright and loves to learn new things. He loves his toys and loves a game of ball chase. He is motivated through food and toys. Dewi has shown extreme worry at the vets and is muzzled due to snapping. The muzzle training program will need to be continued and working on intense handling.
Rehoming Criteria:
Dewi mixes lovely with dogs and will need to live with other dogs in the home. He will need to live in a adult only home. He is a gorgeous boy and will make a fab addition if the home is patient and willing to continue his training. Please contact me for me information.

BISCUIT
History:
Biscuit has been in kennels for a very long time with more than one rescue organisation. He is currently fostered by Spiritlink Behaviourists on behalf of Birch Hill Dog Rescue to enable him to undergo the rehabilitation he needs to find a new permanent and loving home. Since moving in after New Year, Biscuit has come on in leaps and bounds, but will need someone who is prepared to give him the time, space and dedication to continue to bring out his fabulous personality. He has a history of using his mouth but hasn't done so with me in the six weeks he has been here. H His agility skills (and mine!!) are very basic but in the right home the sky's the limit. His age is listed as four, but I think may be a tad older ..
Description:
Biscuit is a typical small terrier with a golden scruffy coat and a love of all things sporty! He plays football. He has meals in a kong which he can flick and chase all over the place. He leaps into and out of the boot of the car and onto and off my lap! My legs currently serve as indoor jumps and in pursuit of a bite of my bacon sandwich he can reach almost 3ft from a standing start. He travels well and is crate trained. His new home will need to continue toilet training, We've had a couple of accidents but remember he's been in kennels for years!
Rehoming Criteria:
Biscuit needs a home with an owner who is with him more often than not and with whom he can share his love of active living. He does not trust easily and will need someone who is prepared to work with me to build their bond before adoption. He is a one person dog and, although tolerant of many hands, he would prefer a 1-2-1 relationship. He is good with other dogs - there are eight others in my home - but likes his own space.

BOB
History:
Bob was surrendered by his owner, along with his litter mate, due to illness. He realised he had taken on too much and could not cope,. Bob was kept in a kennel outside so he has never known living in a house. He has settled well into foster care in West Yorkshire.
Description:
Bob is a tri Border Collie. He enjoys a fuss and is friendly to people other dogs. He has a good recall but that's it regarding training. He seems keen to learn. Loves to play ball. Strong on the lead so needs work, house training in progress. Not sure about cats or children although his litter mate who came in with him is fine. He needs his energy channeling and to exercise his brain.
Rehoming Criteria:
He needs an active home. I would say that he can mix with other dogs. Bob could have great potential in the right home. He can be seen at his foster home.
