Meet our dogs


This handsome boy is Barney!  Barney is around four years old. Barney came to us with no background history and was very wary of the staff when he arrived. In Barney’s time at the sanctuary he has come on leaps and bounds and is now very affectionate towards the staff. Barney loves to play with […]

Trigger and Sophie

This gorgeous pair are Trigger and Sophie and they are 7 years old. These two are very special because Trigger is blind, has been since birth and Sophie helps him to get around. We assume they are brother and sister and they are inseparable due to Sophie making sure she points him in the right direction. Because […]


This Stunning girl is Peggy!  She is a 6 year old bearded collie mix. As you may have noticed Peggy has 3 legs but that doesn’t slow her down! She is great with other dogs and loves to chase footballs! She will make somebody a perfect companion.


Betsy is an 8 year old JRT. She came to us as her owner sadly passed away. She has taken some time to adapt to life at the sanctuary. Betsy would be best suited to a home with no other animals or children. She will need time and patience to allow her to settle into […]


Margot is a lovely 8 month old beagle! She is good with other dogs and loves a good run in the field. Therefore she will need an active home with someone who is interested in training, since she is still young.

Bonnie and Sadie

Bonnie and Sadie are an amazing mother and daughter duo. They are aged 11 and 9. These girls need to be rehomed together as they are so well bonded. Don’t let their age put you off; they are still full of energy and love nothing more than playing fetch on the beach. Bonnie and Sadie […]


Nicky is a 9 year old toy poodle. He is a very sweet dog who loves human company and therefore doesn’t like to be left for periods of time. He can be uncomfortable with some handling and therefore it is important to build up trust with him. However staff and volunteers absolutely adore his charming […]


Maisie is a 1 year old Staffy X.  She is an energetic dog who loves running in the field. She can be slightly nervous at times around new people, however she is coming on well at the Sanctuary. Maisie loves playing with other dogs and her toys! Once she is comfortable with you she is […]


Lucy is a 3 and a half year old Beagle X. She is an active dog and would make an amazing running or hiking partner! She could live with other dogs and has been around children before. She is a real sweetheart and deserves to be in her forever home.


Chase is a 4 year old JRT. He is a lovely dog with tonnes of personality! He loves nothing more than playing fetch with his favourite people… or anyone who’ll throw the ball!! He could potentially live with another dog depending on how they got on with each other; however he would not be suitable […]


Shabba is a stunning black shepherd! She is about 2 years old and was originally from the pound. From our assessments, she could live with older teens and a more settled adult dog. She will need an active home where she will get enough exercise and mental stimulation to keep her happy.


Red is an active boy, who loves nothing more than a game of fetch, and would make a fabulous hiking companion. He ignores other dogs on walks, however he wouldn’t be suited to living with other pets. Red was originally brought to the sanctuary in June 2018. He will need an experienced owner to help […]


Vern is around 14 years old. He loves to chill in the sun, going for walks and playing with the staff here at Assisi. He would love to meet an owner who understands him and is able to give him lots of love but also his own space. He would also need to be the […]


Jack is a 6-year-old Jack Russell Terrier. He has been at the sanctuary now for a number of months and is still looking for his forever home. He would need an experienced owner to work his behavioural issues. He wouldn’t be suitable to live with children or cats unfortunately. However, he could potentially live with […]


Teddy is a 4-year-old Pomeranian cross. Teddy is an active boy who loves exploring on walks. He will need an experienced owner as he is a nervous dog with some behavioural issues. He wouldn’t be suitable to live with children or other animals, so he would be best suited to being the only animal in […]
