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.

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.

BRANSTON
History:
Branston is a very loveable but also a very anxious boy. He is reactive to many triggers within his environment which means he is unable to cope well in his current home where he lives with another Border Collie and a toddler. He has never attacked another dog or children, but does bully the older dog. Over the past three years, he has been working with a variety of behaviourists who advise that the best thing for him is to remove some of his triggers, which largely involve the other dog and the toddler. They think, he will thrive much better in a home where there are no other animals or children and where he will receive the 1-2-1 attention that he craves and desires. It's a heartbreaking decision to rehome him and a last resort, but the safety of both dogs and the child involved needs to come first.
Description:
Branston is a red merle border collie. He is approximately 20kgs so is Medium-Large. He enjoys 1-2-1 agility sessions with a dedicated trainer and current owner. Although due to his reactivity, he hasn't competed at an agility show yet. At training, he is completing courses at a Grade 7 level and is incredibly focused whilst in the ring. His strong herding instincts and motion sensitivity means that he often lashes out at the other dog in the home and he has shown some growling tendencies, fear aggression and stalking behaviour towards the toddler. When he is alone, he is very loving and attentive. He loves learning new things and playing as well as having some relaxation time with his owners.
Rehoming Criteria:
Branston is very intelligent and requires a lot of mental stimulation so would suit a home with experienced Border Collie owners. It would be great if he could continue his agility training. An environment where he is the only dog with no children is now the best option for him. Support will be available for any potential new owners. They will need to be home checked and the current owners will take Branston back if things don't work out.

SHADOW
History:
Shadow is currently in foster with Spaniel Aid UK. She was relinquished as she was too active for her previous owners and needs a job to do. After four weeks in foster, she is now available for adoption. Shadow is in foster in Derbyshire.
Description:
Shadow is completely gorgeous in both looks and personality. She would measure as medium (on the small side - weight 11kg) and 8-9 inch flyball height dog. She hasn't seen much of the world and was initially shy in new situations in foster but soon came out of her shell and is very outgoing now she's gained some confidence. She is very active and happily on the go all day. She is quick/agile and a fast learner. I have been teaching her some foundation obedience and box work in foster which she gets quickly and easily. In the home, she loves cuddles and is great with children and other dogs.
Rehoming Criteria:
Shadow needs an active, busy household where they have time to invest in her training. She could happily live with other dogs or as an only dog (currently living with four Spaniels (3 x males, and 1 x bitch) in foster. She chased cats in her previous home so best cat free. Dogs must not be left longer than four hours on their own. The charity does not re-home to families with children under 5 years old, You would need to be able to travel to this location twice for a meet and greet. To find out more information visit the Spaniel Aid website. To apply you need to submit an application via the Spaniel Aid website www.spanielaid.co.uk where all criteria can be viewed.

NIA
History:
Nia is a three year old rescue from Romania. She spent her first year on the streets and had a litter of pups. She was then rescued and has had a good life in the UK. She is a much loved pet and companion but due to losing my house I cannot offer her the life she needs. I am reluctant to let her go but it is in her best interests.
Description:
Nia is a dual layer coat black and grey 32kg Sheppard. Very intelligent and quick to learn. Affectionate, full of beans, very treat orientated and responds very well to commands. Loves exercise and loves having tasks. Her only quirk is scavenging food from the streets and she is not fond of having her claws trimmed!
Rehoming Criteria:
Would only go to a loving home and is great with children 4+ but is picky about sharing with other dogs. Would need a fit person who could give her plenty of exercise. Fully house trained and not a destroyer.

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.

NERYS / NESS
History:
Nerys, now known as Ness, was a failed sheepdog who loved to chase chickens but not sheep. She didn’t have any love or training for the first three years of her life so has some time to make up!
Description:
Nerys is happy, healthy, very energetic and as bright as a button. She is a beautiful girl inside and out. She has high energy levels and, although she loves cuddles and her down time, Nerys will walk for hours on end and loves to play. She eats well and has put on weight and her coat is silky and shiny! she is happy, healthy and very energetic!
Rehoming Criteria:
She is such a sweet baby and just needs a family to live her and help her get over her fears. She needs an active home where she will get the exercise a collie needs for both her body and brain. We feel strongly that she should be rehomed either as an only dog, or with a male dog but not a female.

SQUIRREL
History:
Squirrel urgently requires home due to his family emigrating to New Zealand mid-January. Has been living with another Border Collie since he was a puppy and was there before the children started coming along five years ago. Current location is on the South Coast.
Description:
Squirrel is a black and white Collie. He would measure as KC Large for agility. Weighs around 28kg, kibble fed. He is dual registered KC/ISDS from working lines, trained in Cani-X and Bikejor until approx age four. He has lived with another dog since a puppy and two young children for the last five years. He is very ball orientated and used to 1-2 hours off lead exercise each day. Very switched on and friendly, gets excited when meeting new people. Likes other dogs and interacts well. Highly trainable and still remembers all the activity commands used in Bikejor - some of which could be transferred to agility (left, right, speed up/go on, close, etc). Assumed the dominant role despite being the younger of the two dogs, both entire males which got on well. Castration booked for 02/01/2020. No known health concerns or injuries. Further information, photos and videos are available. Good at the vets, good to groom. Very good with children of all ages. Used to free roaming horses, deer and cattle in the New Forest and not bothered by them. Likes to paddle in water but not fussed about actual swimming.
Rehoming Criteria:
A good all round prospect for a working home, I feel he needs a little job to do. Has had a couple of episodes of food guarding. Due to this and his assumed dominant role, he would be better in an experienced collie home. Could live with other dogs. Not tested on cats. If you feel you can offer this lovely boy the 5 star home he deserves, please contact me.

JUNIPER
History:
Juniper came to Many Tears as a failed sheepdog.
Description:
Juniper is a stunning Collie girl. She is kind and would make a loving and loyal friend in the right home where she gets the exercise she needs. She has never lived in a home so will need help with house training, but she's a smart girl and should pick this up quickly.
Rehoming Criteria:
Juniper will be best in a home with at least one other dog to give her some confidence. If you have the time and understanding to let this girl bloom you will be rewarded tenfold.

BAXTER
History:
When Baxter came into rescue he was a very timid boy and had never lived in a house.
Description:
Bouncy, beautiful, beaming, blissful, brilliant. Baxter is all of these and much much more. As he's a a young boy, he will pick things up very quickly in the home environment. He is incredibly intelligent and inquisitive. Baxter walks on a lead and loves to run, play, sniff, snuggle and give kisses. He’s a friendly boy who loves all other dogs and people.
Rehoming Criteria:
Baxter can take a little while to realise that new people aren’t scary, but once he knows you he devotes on you! With the correct socialisatio,n Baxter will learn that people are great to be around. He does not have a bad bone in his body. He is just full of love. Now he just needs a nice family to take him in so he can show you just how perfect he is.

KIVA
History:
Kiva did not have the best start to her life. When she came into rescue in late October, she was a scared little girl. She would cower to the floor as soon as anyone went near her and you could see the fear in her eyes. Now, she’s come out of her shell and ready to find her forever home with people who will provide her with unlimited patience, love and kindness.
Description:
This dear sweet Sprollie is a beauty. She is an absolute sweetheart in every way. She’s stunning, gentle and kind hearted. Once she knows you she’s a loyal girl, and it doesn’t take her long to gain trust. She’s also really gentle and playful. She really will need to live with another kind and gentle dog or dogs in her new home and need owners who are experienced with dogs like her.
Rehoming Criteria:
Kiva would make a great companion for an energetic family who love the outdoors and who would take Kiva on new adventures! Kiva will still need a home with a resident dog or dogs to help her confidence get to 100%.

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. She's had a lot of interest, but not really the right sort, sadly
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. She is already doing sequences, 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.

LARA
History:
Lara has been with us for over a year now after a really horrible start in life. She was a very stressed, unhappy dog with a lot of behavioural issues when she first came into rescue and it has taken some time to sort out. She is now a happy, affectionate, playful little girl who really deserves a good home of her own.
Description:
Lara is a black and tan, short-coat GSD X, smaller than the average shepherd but very agile and quick to learn. She loves to work and also has a good nose so would train up well for agility, canicross, obedience or working trials. Once she knows and trusts you she walks nicely on the lead and comes back when called. She loves to race around a field at breakneck speed and finding and chasing rabbits is the best fun! She loves chasing a ball and does bring it back, but she will test you out. Bored clever dogs are usually naughty dogs and she would be this without something to do. She still has some learning to do and is not suitable to a novice handler. If you have some experience with training clever dogs she will reward you with devotion and skill that you will both enjoy. She has had some training whilst with us and is generally good on lead with an experienced handler. She gets anxious around dogs she doesn't know and some people and will lunge and bark if allowed to do so. However, if she is confident in her handler she is much better behaved. She loves running around and will jump up to eye level to look you in the eye. She will also play fetch although still needs to learn to bring the ball back to you every time.
Rehoming Criteria:
Lara needs an active home where someone is around for most of the day and where her brain can be exercised as much as her body! We feel she would do well at most things including agility, cannicross or obedience. Lara's ideal home would be with another dog and an experienced handler who won’t let her potential go to waste and reassure her that she is safe. She still has some learning to do and is not suitable to a novice handler. If you have some experience with training clever dogs, she will reward you with devotion and skill that you will both enjoy. Any potential home will be homechecked prior to adoption. A home without children (or lots of visiting children) would be best as she is mistrustful of people she doesn't know.
