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.

SHANA
History:
I have owned Shana since she was eight weeks old, intending training her to work sheep. Sadly she is showing no herding instinct and has no confidence in presence of sheep. With running a small sheep farm and owning four other working collies, I do not have the time to channel her energy and brain power into other disciplines and she is not getting the attention she deserves.
Description:
Shana is black/white, smooth-coated and prick eared bitch. She is well marked and very pretty, on the small to medium sized, slight build. She is keen and fast when playing and has a great retrieve instinct. She wants to please and get things right, has a great temperament and is a little sensitive, Shana is obedient, well socialised and house trained. At present she lives in and sleeps in crate in porch at night.
Rehoming Criteria:
Shana is looking for a fulfilling role in pastures new. I am very reluctant to part with her and a 5* home is essential with a job in mind, not merely as a breeding bitch. This must be a home for life

MEREDITH (MERRY)
History:
Meredith (Merry) is a beautiful, sociable dog who loves all beings. Sadly she just needs so much exercise, which we are unable to give her.
Description:
Merry is a small Collie. She has long, beautiful hair, mainly black on top, with a white chest and belly, white nose and a white tip on her tail. In the summer, she has lovely auburn tones in her fur. She is really active and is always in the go. She loves to play football, chase, and loves cuddles, by humans of all ages. She is very obedient. She is extremely clever and quick to learn new things. She is motivated by affection not food. She would be perfect for agility trials, tracking etc. Her only slight flaw is she likes to eat alone, and gets protective of her food when other dogs are around. She just needs to be shown what to do! She was spayed last year after having one set of pups.
Rehoming Criteria:
She needs a home where she can run and play all day. Without constant stimulation, she can get a little stir crazy, so she needs a home where she will be taken out everyday and taken for long walks, runs and be given opportunities to stimulate her mind. She does not like to be shouted at new owner needs to be firm but in a soft tone. She is used to being with other dogs so ideally she would be rehomed where there are other dogs. Can be seen at home.

MAX
History:
Max was handed in for rehoming due to his high energy levels and his need for mental stimulation. He came to me thinking he ran the show!
Description:
Max is a medium height white/apricot Cockapoo with bags of energy. I have found it quite easy to retrain him. In his last home he was taught some bad habits and had no boundaries but learns quickly and is willing. He will make someone a great agility dog, he's quick and has good drive.
Rehoming Criteria:
Max needs an experienced home where there is time to train and simulate his brain and no small, resident or visiting children. He has not been tested with cats. Re-homing fee applies

RALPHIE
History:
Ralphie came into the rescue as his owner was working long hours. Ralphie clearly hadn't had much training but is excelling here at Foal Farm with his training programme
Description:
Ralphie will be an Intermediate dog as he is just above Medium height. He is showing a fabulous level of intelligence and the willingness to learn. He does have some issues with chasing moving cars and this will need to be addressed in his new home.
Rehoming Criteria:
We're seeking a home with children 12 years plus. Ralphie can live with another dog as he very much enjoys the company of them and this may assist with him settling in. However, Ralphie can go as an only dog as long as his adopter puts the work into him. We will only consider homes within one hour of Biggin Hill as we will work with potential adopters on Ralphie's training to ensure a successful and permanent homing.

PIPPA
History:
Pippa came to us from a family who couldn’t cope with her high energy. We had very few details but we know that she was born 4/4/2019 .
Description:
Pippa is red with black muzzle/nose with short tail. She’s a clear Stafford / Frenchie cross but with muzzle so she doesn’t suffer any breathing issues whatsoever but has Frenchie ears. She is very active, can jump heights and enjoys a challenge. Judging from guidance online, we believe she would measure Small for Agility. She is very good with other dogs. She’s been health checked, microchipped and full vaccinations and and is free from any health problems as we’ve had her checked over.
Rehoming Criteria:
She needs a dedicated forever home where they are willing to give her the opportunity to use her brain and burn her energy. I have plenty more pictures. She can be seen at our home.

ANGUS
History:
Angus is looking for an active home.
Description:
Angus is such a bright and complex chap and we feel he would love to do agility etc. to utilise that brain and energy. He loves his walks and likes to learn new tricks. He can be worried when he first meets people. He is housetrained and can be left for a few hours. He is looking for a quiet home. He is definitely not a lap dog!
Rehoming Criteria:
Angus is looking for committed and experienced owners who will allow him time and space to settle in. We are looking for a quiet adult only home for him with preferably one owner. Angus will need ongoing training in the home as he can be insecure in certain situations as he does show guarding behaviour. Potential adopters will need to make multiple visits to the centre to build up a relationship. He is unable to live with cats or small furries. New owners will need to follow the advice given by the training team on how to settle him in to his new environment and the rehoming process will be gradual.

TONKS
History:
Tonks is a Romanian rescue dog who came to the UK in November 2019. but despite all our efforts, the rehoming just hasn't been working out. She just doesn't did not get on with our other older dog. It's really sad because she is such a bright girl and is learning things so quickly and can be really affectionate when the house is calm.
Description:
Tonks is incredibly bright and will pick up new commands and games within minutes. I took her to a secure dog field with an agility course just before Christmas and she absolutely loved it which is why we wanted to put her on Agilitynet. She understood it all and took to it without much encouragement at all. She also enjoys running with me. Tonks will master any trick or activity in a short time if trained to it. She has a strong handle on 'sit', 'down', 'leave', 'wait' and 'go away' and, if nothing else more interesting is going on, she's started to develop her recall. Even though she came from kennels in Romania, she is now house trained, happy to walk on a lead and showing a real interest in developing her training towards agility courses. She doesn't always share well with other dogs if she thinks they might be interested in her toys or treats. Tonks really enjoys a cuddle and a belly rub, and has a very cute habit of coming up to anyone sitting on the floor then climbing up and nestling down in their lap. Tonks is a wonderfully enthusiastic member of the household, always happy to see you and interested in what you're doing - she especially enjoys spending time in the kitchen whenever anybody is out there cooking.
Rehoming Criteria:
If Tonks could find an owner with the time and experience to train her to it she could make a very good agility dog. Alternatively she could become a good Cani-X dog. She needs a home where she can use her brain and find something to keep her occupied. Better in a child free home

ROO
History:
Roo was originally from Romania and rehomed to an elderly couple who are not a suitable home for such a high energy dog due to mobility issues.
Description:
Roo is a gorgeous, petite 17kg lad who is so eager to please and learn and extremely friendly with people and children. He is currently given little opportunity to socialise with other dogs and walked on a close slip lead, which is making him frustrated as he gets on very well with other dogs when allowed to mix. He was taken by an assessor to meet a dog to test his reaction and it was very clear he had no issues and just wanted to play, but can also ignore. He is also non-reactive to dogs who show aggression. During the assessment he was taught a hand signal within seconds and is clearly very highly intelligent. He hasn't lived with cats. Roo is pretty good on lead but currently not allowed off lead. It is strongly felt he would pick up sound recall very easily with reward based training given his responses during the assessment. Roo has no anxiety when left home alone for short periods, is fully house trained and loves to travel in the car. He is neutered and up to date with vaccinations and in very good health.
Rehoming Criteria:
Must be an active home. Roo can get excited and 'mouth' so ongoing training is needed and he would be better suited in a home without very young children. over six. Home checks apply. Full rescue back up given

ALFIE
History:
Meet the bright and bouncy Alfie who came in to us as a stray. He has served his days and has now been transferred to us to rehome. We are hoping this lovely boy flies out quickly as he is really hating kennels. His sad cries, howls and barks can be heard all over the kennels. He is desperate for human company when he sees you its like you've been gone for weeks.
Description:
Alfie is a medium - large size crossbreed. He is brindle in colour, possibly Kelpie X Staffordshire bull terrier. He would measure Large. He is a very quick learner, ball motivated, food motivated, wants to please, very agile and fast! He is really eager to learn and does have the makings of a perfect agility dog! Off the lead he loves to run everywhere, picking up toys and making his own fun or fetching what you throw for him, his favourite is the boomer ball which he occupies himself with! Once he has nailed training, we do think he would make an awesome agility dog. He is agile, toy motivated and super fast. We also think he would love the challenge! He is ball and food motivated and just wants to please! On the lead, he can walk well but does sometimes get distracted, excited and all over the place so we are now getting him used to a Gencon which he walks beautifully on! Alfie is a super friendly boy. He loves everyone he meets and his tail never stops wagging. We have let him say hello and walk round with lots of dogs whilst he has been with us and has always been a very good boy, just wanting to play. We do feel his exuberance may not suit every dog as he can be a bit full on but we do feel he could live with another dog. He is still young and puppylike he hasn't quite learned that not everyone wants to cuddle him, we are working on this, as his excitement gets the better of him sometimes. However, he does have a lovely 'sit' and does give paw.
Rehoming Criteria:
Alfie would very much like a home where he is only left for short periods, not to exceed four hours. He really doesn't like to be on his own. He would also like an active family who can provide the balance of physical and mental stimulation he needs. For this reason we would definitely recommend some obedience/puppy training to get up to scratch to become a well behaved dog and no young children for him to accidentally knock over. Not been cat tested. Secure fenced garden. Subject to meet and greet if another dog in the home. Any prospective owner will be required to have a homecheck.

Squirrel has gone a canicross home which is more in line with the training he’d had in previous years. It’s a shame though as he would have stood a fair chance at agility and competing although probably not at serious/ highly competitive agility levels given his age.
