BELLA

Photo of Bella the dog
 Breed  Sex  Age
 Collie cross Akita  Female  11 months
 History and Recommendations
Please meet Bella,

Bella is a sweet girl, but is too clever for her own good. She likes to get her own way, and if she doesn’t she get upset and sulks. Bella is nervous of new people when first meeting, so will need a few intros before going to her new home. Once she has got to know you she is your friend for life.

Bella will need to go to training classes, and this will need to be booked before she goes home. The training will help with learning new manners and teaching her she can’t always get her own way. It will also help with meeting new people, and socializing with other dogs. Bella also finds the outside world very scary, and anything new she comes across she freaks out. So is looking for someone who will help her become happier being walked, and feel training will help her bond with her new owner and feel happier being in new situations.

Bella is looking for an experienced owner, who has dealt with difficult dogs and training problems before.

Bella is a young girl, who loves going on walks and keeping her mind active. She is looking for an active family, who will give her plenty of mental and physical exercise.

Bella has been mixed with male and female dogs, and has no manners at all. She will go straight to play, and will use her though play. Bella is to be the only dog in the household, as she needs work on playing and socialising with dogs. However after training and time she may in the future have better manners and can live with another dog.

If you would like to know more about Bella, please ask one of the HULA Team XxxX

 History and Recommendations
Please meet Pearl,

Pearl is looking for an experienced owner who is up for a challenge and who can give her lots of love, attention and TLC.

Pearl has not had much training or socialisation with other dogs, however she loves being around people and would spend her whole time wanting a belly rubs. She is a very active girl, so will help you keep fit and healthy as she needs long walks. She is also very bright so would love mind activity games.

Due to Pearl’s lack of socialising with other dogs she is currently going through a lot of training with the staff and is coming along very well. However she does still need a lot more work for her to be happy with other dogs, so is looking to be the only dog in the household. She also needs a cat and small animal free home as she has a high prey drive.

Please meet Missy,

Missy is a typical young puppy – full of energy and a lot of fun.

Missy is a sweet girl, and loves being with people. She is very outgoing and full of energy. She is looking for someone who can match her energy levels and is happy to go on adventures with her.

Missy does need to attend training classes, as she is young but very willing to learn. She does lack in manners, and does need more training on the lead, around other dogs and general everyday life manners.

Missy is not happy being left so is looking for someone who is around most of the day, and can slowly get her use to being on her own. However this may take a while, and will need building up slowly.

Missy has very long legs and this means she is a very good jumper!! She is able to jump 6-7 foot high fencing, so she’s looking for someone who has a very secure garden or is happy to be with her when she is out in the garden.

Missy has lived with cats before and is very good, but she does want to play. So is looking to live with a cat who has lived with lively dogs before, and is happy to tell her off if she gets too much for them.

If you would like to know more about Missy, please ask one of the HULA Team XxxX

Jazmin is nervous of new people, however she is soon won over with a bit of hotdog and will be your friend for life. She gives great hugs too!!

She loves being the centre of attention, however a bit too much and isn’t happy when other dogs share her time with people. So is looking to be the only dog in the household. Jazmin is a very bright girl, and loves training, which is great as she does need more everyday manners and socializing with new people and other dogs.

Jazmin does have a cheeky/naughty side to her, so is looking for someone who can take her to training classes, make sure she doesn’t always get her own way and keep on top of her training. She is lovely girl now, so with more training and guidance she will be a fantastic dog.

Possi-bull?

Are you thinking of adopting a rescue dog? If so please give consideration to the bullbreeds.

There are many good reasons for allowing one of these wonderful dogs into your life.

Click here to read just a few of them.



Pedigree logo
Our friends at Pedigree will be feeding all of the dogs in our care for 12 months. It’s part of their Feeding Brighter Futures campaign, which will see them pledge to feed 1 million meals to rescue dogs up and down the country.

The initiative will see the dogs here at HULA provided with the right nutrition they need to get them on the road to their new home – from wet and dry food for balanced daily meals, to care and treat items used as tools for behaviour training and improving issues such as poor oral hygiene.

To find out more about the campaign and learn about the difference good nutrition can make to rescue dogs like the ones here at HULA, visit www.pedigree.com/brighterfutures or www.facebook.com/wearefordogs

HULA provides rescue shelter for dogs given up for adoption

For information about the intake of dogs to HULA please read our page Relinquishing a pet.

Assessment

All incoming dogs are assessed by our staff, using nationally recognised standards. This, coupled with what we know of the dog’s history, means that the dogs can be graded, these gradings are used by our staff and volunteers to help them know how to handle each dog safely:

Management

Once the dogs have been assessed and graded, a careplan is put into operation. Some dogs need calming sessions and affection rather than long, energetic exercise sessions. Others need a disciplined approach to issues such as jumping, pulling or mouthing.

These requirements are displayed on their kennels, and the volunteer walkers put them into action. They record, on the daily sheets, the progress the dogs are making. Based on these reports the dogs’ level grading can be adjusted as appropriate. These sheets are displayed when the kennels are open for viewing, and visitors are encouraged to read them alongside the laminated pen-portraits of the dogs.


Some of our dogs are also featured on The Dog Rescue Pages
