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.

ARTHUR
History:
Arthur was brought into the rescue centre by his owner who had him from a puppy. He was just too much for her with three young children and a lot of to-ing and fro-ing in the house so Arthur was in a permanently stressed condition. He is now being fostered as he was making his nails and feet bleed by his frantic behaviour in the rescue kennels.
Description:
Arthur is a smooth coated medium sized collie with a lovely mahogany and white coat. He was bred from working stock. His naturally nervous temperament has been exacerbated by lack of socialisation and an early neutering at six months. He has had little training. Arthur is very affectionate and quickly bonds to his people. He is currently living with five other collies and, after a nervous start, is getting on pretty well except when there is food about (he is very possessive so this needs managing in a multi-dog house.) He has a chase buddy in our two year old collie and is respectful of the older dogs. Like most young collies, he needs plenty of mental and physical exercise, clear guidelines and a consistent routine - it is just that Arthur needs this more than most! You will need time and experience but would be rewarded by an affectionate companion that would love to be involved in the agility game with you. Arthur travels well. He is house trained but will forget all about such mundane things as emptying bowels and bladder when stressed so be prepared for accidents early on. He likes tennis balls but we have not progressed to playing with a tuggy yet!
Rehoming Criteria:
We would like to find an experienced collie person with patience and time to develop this boy. Someone who will gently and carefully introduce Arthur to dog sports of some kind. An older dog(s) might help to allay his anxieties. Ideally, someone who is around most of the day. No young children but possibly well-trained older kids! We need 24 hours notice for dog to come from foster.

NOAH
History:
Noah was purchased from Gwalchmai on Anglesey in October 2017 as a lovely puppy companion. Sadly he has become far too boisterous for the owner who struggling having just past her 82nd birthday. Noah desperately needs more than she can give him. She knows that the longer she keeps him, the harder it will be to let him go but for his sake he needs to have something more than he has got now.
Description:
Noah is a beautiful light tan and white boy with a very expressive face. He is extremely intelligent. His mother was a working collie but no knowledge of father. Noah loves people and dogs who he meets with no aggression, just very boisterous and wants to play and jump at them. He loves running and chasing a ball and is very agile. Noah knows simple commands like sit, down, paw etc. and has no food aggression.
Rehoming Criteria:
Noah is still looking for a home. He needs to be in somewhere with plenty of exercise where his brain can be challenged and where he could be happy. He would be a very good agility or flyball candidate. He does not like to be left alone for too long and needs to learn some lead manners due to his over friendly nature. He can live with other dogs but not been tested with cats although is very excited when he see one. Okay with children but again very excited.

KRAKEN
History:
Kraken is a puppy we had from our own Husky bitch. Unfortunately having her son around is causing her to become very stressed and depressed. This means we feel another home for him would be best also he is very high energy.
Description:
Kraken is a lovely dog, willing to learn. He is white brown and dark brown with bits of black in his coat and would be classed as a Medium dog size. We feel would make a brilliant agility dog as listens to commands and never stops wanting to learn. He listens to commands walks well on the lead after the initial excitement. He is fully house trained.
Rehoming Criteria:
Due to the amount of energy Kraken has and never being able to wear him out - also the collie in him - we feel it would benefit him to be worked. He is fine with young children as lives with three Under 14s in the house. N Visiting at home address during evenings or weekends or by arrangement

PICKLES
History:
Pickles has ended up in kennels due to no fault of his own and is struggling.
Description:
Pickles is a gorgeous boy. He is active, bright and full of beans and is looking for a job. He loves people and cuddles but he can be vocal to dogs on lead but does recover with distraction work. He mixes with dogs but can be worried by bigger dogs, and it does take him a few meets to gain his confidence.
Rehoming Criteria:
Pickles needs an experienced collie home with children age 13+ . He has bounds of energy and need this energy channeled into an activity. It would benefit Pickles if he was to live with another dog in the home and new owners will need to continue his training when mixing with other dogs. He will make a great companion for a family who can put in the work to help Pickles overcome his worries and noise anxieties. Can be seen at the Dogs Trust Bridgend Rehoming centre. A temporary foster may be an option
