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.

Working with our friends at Rescue Dogs for Agility Homes UK to find happy homes for active dogs.

LEO
History:
Leo is a young dog who was taken to the vet to be PTS. He came from a home where he was spoiled and considered snappy. He was the only dog in a family with children and up to six weeks ago he never showed this behaviour at all. We have not seen much of that.
Description:
Who is looking for an agility pocket rocket? Leo is a little chap, possibly a mini agility type. This super dog is ready to set the world on fire, but like all the greats in this world he has his quirk. He suddenly decided he wasn’t going to give up something he had. When his older owners didn’t figure what to do, he learnt he could do it. He needs a job, real direction. He does want to please and use his brain but hasn’t been given the opportunity to do so. He does love a cuddle and to be fussed all over.
Rehoming Criteria:
So if you’d like to give Leo the job he desperately wants and needs and are willing to do a bit of work - shouldn’t be too much as he is super friendly and fun - then please apply. He would benefit from a home who has had dogs before and are willing to to work with any problems should they arise. He needs a fair, firm and fun home or foster home with other dogs to also guide him which may help a bunch. Little Leo is apparently good with cats but we would need to carry out our own cat test to confirm this. Leo will need a nice friendly home where any children at the property are 10+ and dog savvy.

GARTH KENNEL COLLIE PUPPY
History:
My name is Ann Watt and I'm helping an elderly woman in her late 70s to find home for some litters of puppies. She is KC registered for Border Terriers but breeds other dogs such as Collies and JRTs and as well. She is not a puppy farm. All the dogs are well taken care of and only lack socialisation. As they are local to me, I'm handling the pups as much as possible and putting toys in with them. They have been brought up on a farm with cats and other animals all around.
Description:
This little boy is the last one left of his littler. He just a good quality farm collies. No fancy stuff. Great natured, clever mum. I have one of their collies and she's awesome.
Rehoming Criteria:
If I cannot find homes for this puppy at age 10 weeks, he will have to go into rescue.

DIP
History:
Dip was taken on with another pup by a family in a heart over head moment. I've taken her in to find her a suitable home.
Description:
A tri colour, short coated collie, Dip is a very sweet girl who is keen to learn new things. In the short amount of time she has been with me, she has gained in confidence greatly. She engages well with her person once trust has been established. However, she needs to be able to take things at her own pace and treated gently and kindly. She already has fabulous recall and is off lead. We are working on nose touch, leg weaves, middle and proprioception work. Dip can also be a little nervy, worried and insecure. She will back off and bark at things she is unsure of, which is quite a lot at the moment. I've never had cause to believe it will escalate further.
Rehoming Criteria:
She needs her collie brain engaging and someone with the environment, patience and skills to bring her on. She is not at all ready as yet for a busy agility environment, although she seems to have a good recovery rate as long as allowed to retreat to a safe place which is often her person. She has lived with children.

MILO
History:
Milo came over from Romania privately 18 months ago where he was homed with a family with two young children who apparently teased him with treats until he snapped at one of them. He was placed in local kennels who advertised him on FB. I fostered him seven months ago to save him from being PTS or returned to Romania. He stayed with me for some 10 weeks where he interacted really well with my pack of six. He was a bit shy to start with but soon gained in confidence. He needed some discipline especially concerning food but this was soon sorted. He was fine on and off the lead and house trained. I found him, what I felt at the time, was a suitable home with four adults and an older dog of whom he got on well with. It has recently come to my attention (some four months since he was adopted) that the positive discipline he needed has been somewhat lacking to the extent now that his owners have become fearful of him and want him rehomed as soon as possible.
Description:
Milo is just under the medium measure for agility. He is of mixed colouring and long-haired with a gorgeous fluffy tail and weighs approx 14 kgs. I did some initial agility training with him and he was very interested and showed great potential. One of his eyes is slightly smaller than the other but my vet has examined him and says it is congenital. I think this adds to his good looks! He shows no signs of any sight loss. He is food oriented and is keen to play ragger, loves cuddles, sleeps in a crate at night and does not wake you in the morning! He is very intelligent and quick to learn. He has had some initial scent training and picked it up very quickly.
Rehoming Criteria:
Milo, through no fault of his own now requires a loving home ideally with another dog who will play and interact with him which he loves. His new owner needs to be experienced and confident to administer the positive discipline he needs which is only what a young dog would need but substantially earlier in their life. Milo has been allowed to get his own way too often. If I only had two or three dogs I would be happy to give him a new home but this is not the case. Milo would benefit from a home with no young children but older ones who would respect that he needs his own space. He is crate, house, lead trained and has a good recall. Loves running with other dogs off lead. Please give this dear little dog a lovely home which he so desperately needs to prevent him going to a rescue centre. I am happy to discuss him further if needs be.

BOB
History:
Bob was rescued as a small pup from a public shelter in Romania and didn’t have the best of starts at a young age. He has been fostered in Knighton since he was five months old, and it’s really time he found a forever home of his own.
Description:
Bob is possibly a mix of Jack Russell x Collie. He is a gorgeous, lively boy, full of intelligence and personality. He loves to play with other dogs, toys and humans, too. Bob is highly motivated by food and can be trained with normal dog food, let alone treats. He has the potential to be a very well behaved boy. Now what he needs is someone who can put the time in with him. He would be fabulous at agility. Shy with strangers at first, he soon comes round. He walks nicely on-lead and recalls well. Bob is house-trained, crate-trained, non-destructive, and travels well. He will be a medium-sized adult dog - not more than 15kg.
Rehoming Criteria:
Bob would need a home with at least one other, youngish playful dog and an adopter who understands that he can be shy with strangers - especially visiting the home - and that they feel confident they can manage this. He is child friendly if they are older, calm, and dog savvy. He can live with cats, and has done before.

GIDGET
History:
Gidget is a lively boy who's had a few homes in a short time. probably because when being being left alone, he became destructive
Description:
Gidget is a small Husky type, but slender. He is very smart and quick, gets along well with other dogs but can be a little OTT. He enjoys being given activities to do and is quick to learn. He's has had some basic training but is getting frustrated in a kennel environment.
Rehoming Criteria:
Gidget needs someone with him for vast majority of the day as he hates to be alone and can become destructive. He would be okay with children aged 16+. He can be seen at the rehoming centre.
