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.

BLUE
History:
Blue came into our care as his elderly owner was completely unable to cope with a four month old puppy. He is currently in foster with both children and another dog,
Description:
What can you say about a puppy really – Blue is excitable and boisterous. He has lots and lots of learning to do. Some manners and boundaries are being established. He also has lots and lots of training to do, needs lots and lots of time and patience, with lots and lots of stimulation – together with a balance of down time too – just like having a toddler again! That said he is lovely and isn’t too badly behaved. Since coming into our care he has had lots of new experiences, is house trained, been fine with the children and other dogs and walks well on lead – not yet off lead and will require training in this area. He is great meeting new people and travels well in the car.
Rehoming Criteria:
New owners must be fit and activ and have experience of Border Collies. They should have the time to spend with Blue regarding training, have a secure garden and the house large enough to accommodate a dog. Donation to pay.

BEA
History:
Bea is looking for her forever home through absolutely no fault of her own as her previous owners no longer had enough time for her. She has currently settled well into a foster home with four dogs, two cats and three chickens. She would much rather avoid the cats, and after some initial excitement around the chickens, she mostly ignores them now, but overall gets on well with everybody.
Description:
Bea is a black & brindle Hound/Lurcher mix who is very loving and cuddly but also smart and active. She is approximately 21in to the shoulder and weighs about 13/14kg. She would make a great agility dog, or even a cani-X partner. Bea enjoys playing with toys, and, while her retrieving needs a bit of work, there is nothing she loves more than playing tuggy. Her foster mum took her to watch the Champ ring at an agility show and she played happily with her toy even with the loud banging see-saw close by. She will make a fantastic agility dog – especially as she is already very good at jumping stairgates! Bea loves to play with some of her new dog buddies but is also very respectful when the older ones do not want to interact. She is crate-trained, house-trained, travel well in the car, and have been cat tested. Loud noises sometimes scare her little but, after some positive reward training, she now recover very quickly and realises it isn’t that scary after all. Her recall is good and while she occasionally gets distracted by the odd bird, she will come back when called. She does pull a little bit when on-lead probably because she is curious and wants to look at and sniff everything as she has not had too many exciting experiences in her life so far but, once the treats come out, she behaves very nicely. Who doesn’t, after all, love sausage!
Rehoming Criteria:
As she is a Hound/Lurcher mix, Bea will need a home that will give her lots of exercise and mental stimulation. Lots of positive training and plenty of exercise will help her make the most of her clever brain and let her enjoy all the great things life has to offer.She will also need someone who has lots of love to give and patience as some things may scare her. Ideally she would like a dog buddy or two so they can play and have fun together.

SKETCH
History:
Sketch has been a family pet until his owners had to move from the area to care for an elderly relative. They describe him as 'loving, energetic and clever.' After providing a good start to his life, they decided they could not offer Sketch the time and exercise he requires and that he might be too young and lively for the four other older dogs they would also be caring for.
Description:
Sketch, a well grown lilac merle and tan dog who currently weighs 20Kg. He has a lovely nature and is sociable with dogs and people of all ages. Sketch is already enjoying some agility activities just for fun at the Rescue Centre and is proving a fast learner. He has high levels of energy but is not wild or manic in his behaviour. He is quite toy orientated. While Sketch could easily be homed as a pet, staff at the Rescue Centre feel this would not do justice to the talents of this stunningly beautiful and well socialised dog who, with further training, has the potential to turn heads in all the right ways in an agility or obedience arena. Sketch has lived with older children. Sketch is crate trained and can be left for short periods of time, but has had little experience of travelling by car to date. DOB 22.06.2017.
Rehoming Criteria:
Applications from experienced owners who can offer sketch the time, training and exercise he requires to develop are warmly welcomed. An adoption application form and further rehoming information is available in the Welcome Pack on the CDRS website

STITCH
History:
Stitch was born May 17th 2017 from my favortie bitch, Tweed. She has been an entertaining, confident girl from birth. I kept her to do Agility along with her mother. To this end, from the age of six months, Stitch has been to Agility classes to get used to the idea. She is obviously only jumping low poles at class, but on occasion at home has jumped fences with ease. I am gutted to rehome her, but have been diagnosed with an incurable cancer and, above all, I want to be fair to her.
Description:
Stitch is a gorgeous long coated lurcher with an affectionate and faultless temperament. She is a generous, enthusiastic girl who is very energetic. She loves doing agility it and is confident with all the equipment though she has not encountered the see-saw yet. Stitch loves children, people and is friendly with other dogs. She lives with three other dogs - two lurchers and a Border Terrier. We do not have cats so I would be very careful there. She understands that she is not allowed to chase birds (chickens, pheasants etc..), but occasionally tests my resolve. Stitch has been taken out with me on my bike and remains on the lead to run alongside and behaves well. She has been taken into town, in and out of shops and in cafes while we eat. She lies under the table with no trouble. Stitch is very alert, very fast and will chase if she gets the opportunity. However, if she is occupied, she prefers a fully interactive game of frisbee, ball playing or gardening. Stitch is a large dog and will make around maybe 27in at the shoulder. She is strong and weighs around the 26kg mark. She is almost through the chewing stage, but adores leather, shoes etc if they are left around.
Rehoming Criteria:
I have not rehomed a dog before so I am looking for someone special who understands lurchers. She is a sighthound and this must be taken seriously. Stitch is a gorgeous dog in every respect so deserves the best. She must have an attentive, sporty home as she is full of life all of the time. I am looking for a loving home where she will continue agility and maybe Cani-X She is used to being walked in a lightweight plastic mask and will chase deer, hare etc if she is given the opportunity. I do not want her coursing. I would like her to have a home with at least one other dog as she has never been on her own before. She can be seen at home with her mum and granny where any more questions can be answered.

LADY P
History:
Lady P was rescued at five weeks from the streets. She went into private foster and came here at four months old so she's had a good begining. This is all documented with photos.
Description:
Lady P will be a large dog (approx. 26kg). She is one of the most beautiful dogs I have seen. She is a fast dog, loves to run and is very agile. She is very loving. She was crate trained two months ago but seems to have 'forgotten' that. She is okay on a lead but needs to do more loose lead walking. She knows sit and down. She is good with people.
Rehoming Criteria:
Lady P needs an experienced home in the countryside only. Ongoing training and socialising is essential. She is not for families with small children. She is good with other dogs but I would prefer other dogs to be male. We are told that she was cat friendly in her foster abroad and lived with two cats. Please contact me with any questions. Home check to done.

PRECIOUS
History:
Precious was a street dog in Turkey and just wasn't street conscious at all - she simply wouldn't have survived on the streets. She is presently safe in kennels in Turkey, funded by The Turkish Street Dogs and will be ready to travel to the UK around July/August time. Full support and backup by The Turkish Street Dogs.
Description:
Precious is a beautiful brindle with a white blaze, medium to large size, athletic build and very active. She is a very happy girl, adores people and loves children. She just wants to play. She will have had basic home training and some play with people and other dogs in the kennels. She is very good with cats.
Rehoming Criteria:
Precious would benefit from being placed in an active, fun home where she can be trained and kept busy. Being a young dog, she would benefit from ongoing training and play. Adopters should allow her time to settle after the upheaval and travel from Turkey.

LULU
History:
Lulu has been rescued from Turkey by The Turkish Street Dogs, a non-profit-making organisation which fundraises to help these dogs. She will be travelling to the UK in August. She was found as a very young puppy on the streets of Turkey, with a broken leg, which was successfully treated by a local vet. She is now fit and well and is presently in foster care in Turkey, living happily with other dogs and children.
Description:
Lulu is a long-legged girl, athletic slim build, very active, always on the go, with a delightful temperament and would suit an active home. She will be a large size dog. She is a pretty girl with black, brindle, cream colouring. She will have received basic training in the home and seems to be good with other dogs and children.
Rehoming Criteria:
An active home would be ideal. Other dogs and children OK. Adopters should allow Lulu time to settle after the upheaval & travel from Turkey. Being a young dog, she would benefit from ongoing training and play.

TWIX
History:
Twix is a former family pet where they had five children. He was my brother's dog until a change in personal circumstances has led to a need for him to find new home. We have temporarily taken him on to help find him a new home as we do not have the capacity to look after him long term.
Description:
Twix is an affectionate black and white short hair intact dog, around 14-15 kilos, with basic training. He is eager to please and thrives on brain work and responds well to instruction. Since we picked him up on 15th April, we have worked through some basics with him and he seems to have enjoyed the work.
Rehoming Criteria:
Twix would suit a loving family home where he would be able to take up agility

CHASE
History:
I am considering rehoming him due to change in personal circumstances. He has been doing agility for the last year Nd is showing real enthusiasm towards it and will be a very quick dog. I rescued him at a year old and when he came to me he hadn't got any socialisation with other dogs and didn't know how to play. He is a loving dog and loves people as before I got him he didn't really have much interaction with people. I have a two year old and he's too bouncy for her.
Description:
Chase is a black and white, medium size dog with all the basic commands as well as agility commands such as left right back go tunnel. He would make someone, who has the time to put the work in with him, a cracking agility dog. He is good with others dogs is a bit protective of food and toys but loves his ball.
Rehoming Criteria:
He is fine to be rehomed with other dogs. He just needs to be fed separately as he can be possessive of toys. Not nasty just growls. Would be fine with older kids

TOR
History:
Tor came for puppy socialisation classes but unfortunately he is just too strong for his owner. He was bought from a local farm as a pup from their two working sheepdogs but he needs more mental stimulation and training than his owner can give. She is absolutely devastated, but is trying to do the right thing for Tor.
Description:
Tor is quite a big boy with a slight wave in his coat. He has a lovely nature, outgoing and friendly and desperate to have something to do. At 15 months old, he has basic commands and would be at just the right age to take forward in any discipline.
Rehoming Criteria:
Untested with cats - probably not advisable with small children unless in a home with collie experience!

CASH
History:
I got the dog when he was four months old. Since then, he has lived in UK, Finland and Ireland so he is very used to traveling. Most of the time he has been living in kennels, but he can relax indoors as well. Unfortunately I do not have as much time for this dog as he needs. As dog's owner, I can answer any further questions about him and his history.
Description:
Cash is white with brown eye patch. He is rough coated so needs grooming at least twice a year. He's an active and fun dog who is a little bit shy sometimes with new people when it comes touching and handling him. He has done basic training in agility and participated couple unofficial competitions in Finland. Some videos are available.
Rehoming Criteria:
The new owners must have time for this dog plus a knowledge about terriers and active dogs. Preferably countryside, possibility to kennel. Transport to UK to new home can be arranged without costs.

TOMMY
History:
Tommy came into rescue, with his friend Millie, through no fault of his own. We originally thought they needed to to be rehomed together, but he can be a little boisterous for her so we are now looking to find separate homes for them.
Description:
Tommy (aka Tommy the Tank) is a handsome, fun loving boy who has loads of energy. He's a clever lad and mental stimulation in his new home is a must. He would be great at agility or would make an ideal running buddy. He is a sociable and just loves attention. No matter what, he puts a smile on your face if you are feeling low. He may need a little reminder with his house training as he has seen a lot of change recently. He needs a firm hand but is food oriented and eager to please so is fixable.
Rehoming Criteria:
Tommy needs an active household where they are happy to run his little legs off and where they are prepared to go back to basic training if necessary, as sometimes he lacks manners when excited. He would love to live with a friend of similar size who is up for a bit of rough and tumble. Tommy could live with teenagers but not little people as he mouths a bit for attention. Apparently he doesn't like cats.
