Dog of the Week
We work closely with the Dogs Trust in Ilfracombe and K9 focus in Torrington. We want to help these charities to give home to the stray and abandoned dogs of North Devon and you can help too! Every Wednesday morning we feature a K9 companion looking for their "forever home" on The Voice Dog of The Week. We also talk about the joys of re-homing and of course walk you through the entire process!
For more info have a look at the Dogs Trust's & K9 Focus' websites:
This Week's Dog of the Week is Lumi
Lumi is a sweet, three-year-old, female German Shepherd, who arrived at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe as a stray earlier this month.
She is a sensitive, shy girl who is finding the world a little overwhelming at the moment. She looks to her Canine Carers for comfort and adores fuss and affection. She is such a soppy girl who you can’t help but fall in love with. She is house-trained and walks gently on lead. She loves home-comforts and has been sharing her kennel since arriving at the centre.
As Lumi is a little timid she is looking for a loving adult only home where she will be introduced to new things in a fun, positive way and at her own pace. She would appreciate a home in a quiet area and someone around most of the day, with time left a lone to be built up gradually. She could possibly live with a calm, mellow dog and have doggie walking friends who are also chilled out.
If you think you can give Lumi the loving, forever home she deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.
Previous Dogs of the Week
Cadbury is a three-year-old Terrier who will shower you with kisses and melt your heart.
He may be small in size but he is big in personality. Cadbury is a typical Terrier who has lots of energy and likes to be on the go. He enjoys long walks where he can go exploring and when he is ready to settle he enjoys lots of fuss, cuddles and curling up on your lap.
Cadbury would love to find a loving, active home; he is house-trained and needs a secure garden. He could live in a home with older teens and he is used to someone being around most of the time. Time left a lone would need to be built up slowly. Previous experience with Terriers would be beneficial.
Cadbury is currently relaxing in a foster home, on our Home from Home Scheme while he waits for a permanent forever home.
If you think you can give Cadbury the loving, forever home he deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.
Puppy is a one-year-old Terrier with a lot of love to give at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre. He loves the company of people and is playful with other dogs.
Puppy happily shares his kennel with another dog and loves to play chase as well as going for walks together When Puppy knows you he likes fuss and affection. Since arriving at the centre as a stray Puppy has learnt his name and comes over to you when called. He enjoys tasty treats and this will help with learning his basic training.
Puppy is looking for a loving home where he could live with children as young as eleven. He would appreciate someone at home most of the day and time left alone to be built up slowly. Puppy could share his home with a dog that loves to play. Do you have friends that walk with dogs? Puppy would love canine walking buddies!
If you think you can give Puppy the loving, forever home he deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm
Marvel is a handsome four-year-old Greyhound at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe who is looking for a home.
Marvel is an energetic fella who likes to have an open space to run around and play in. When walking on lead he walks beautifully right by your side. He has a lot of love and affection to give and likes to lean into you for a fuss. Marvel loves his food so much that he will do anything for you when offered a tasty treat. He has been sharing his kennel with another dog since arriving at the centre and they enjoy chasing each other and curling up in a bed together.
Now his racing days are over he is looking for a slower pace of life and will be happy with a couple of walks a day, a sprint around the garden, followed by a snooze afterwards. Greyhounds do not need a lot of exercise, after a quick burst of energy they’re content having snuggles with you at home.
Marvel would love to find his special someone to love. He is looking for a home where he could live with older teens, as he is a proper foodie and may try to snaffle a snack from younger ones. He would love a garden to run around in. He could either share his home with another dog or would like regular walking canine buddies.
If you think you can give Marvel the loving, forever home he deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.
