We have an 18 month collie cross (Cody) that we would like to get rehomed. We got him two weeks ago from a home where he wasn’t trained and we think he was kept in the back garden. His sister also lived there but I think she lived indoors. He is nervous around other dogs.
About a week ago he growled at our 6 year old son, although most of the time he’s fine and licks him. We are starting to train him but only really responds to me. I’m at work during the day so we would like to have him rehomed. He is very affectionate and loves cuddles and belly rubs etc but perhaps he is not be suitable for a family with small children. We think he just needs training but I can’t do it as I’m at work and he doesn’t respond as well to my wife as me. We have started his vaccinations.

Ivy is 18 months old and is being rehomed through no fault of her own.

She is fully vaccinated, neutered and is a bundle of energy. She would suit a household who can give her the exercise she needs

Beau is a border collie cross, he is very playful and is looking for a home who can focus his energy. He is not suitable for a home with small children due to his excitable nature.

Maya is a much loved pet who’s owners rescued her at 6 weeks old from a building site in Azerbaijan. Maya came back to Ireland with her family this year. Maya is very cuddly, gets on well with other dogs and is fully housetrained, she is neutered, microchipped and passported. Her owners are unsure of what kind of a dog Maya is but she’s like a mix between a beagle and a boxer but she was born without a tail.
Maya can be a bit unsure of loud noises and unexpected things so when a baby arrived Maya’s environment became very challenging for her and despite efforts at getting her used to the baby she is not getting any more comfortable.

Maya’s owners are heartbroken making the decision to rehome her as it was not a situation they ever imagined finding themselves in, but unfortunately it is the best option for both Maya and the new baby. Maya is looking for a home with no children and new owners who can appreciate this exotic beauty.

I found a stray male dog in a very bad way back in January, myself and a couple of neighbours having animals ourselves decided to help this poor dog unable to walk, riddled with his own feces and urine matted to his skin and under it all riddled with mange well. I took this dog in to help him as the pound said they did not have the funds to make him better so I paid for vet treatment over last few months myself. After months of treatment I have finally got him fit and well, neutered, microchipped and vaccinated, I have 5 dogs myself and 4 horses and really cannot have any more dogs.

Milou is between 6 and 8 year old male neutered sheep collie type dog he is very good with my 5 bitches which are all ages and breeds from terrier to newfoundland, he does bark at the horses so I have had him on a long lead when walking him. He is house trained and very good in the house and can be left on his own for several hours during the day. Milou has a very placid personality, happy to lie on the couch cuddled up to you and go for a walk around the fields, not destructive,  seems well trained sits and goes and lies down on command.

Meet Dexter, he is 3 years old cocker spaniel. Very playful and full of energy, very friendly. He loves taking walks, loves attention.

He is not neutered or vaccinated. He is microchipped. He does get on well with other dogs as far as I’ve seen. I don’t know what he is like around children since he hasn’t been around any.

Abby was found 29th December last year, freezing in Ongar Park, Dublin 15. We have reported her to the pounds, gardai, vet and lost dog pages… no success finding the owner.
She is estimated to be around 2 years now, but due to hear sweet face and lovely ears she looks like a forever-puppy . We micro-chipped and spayed her earlier this year and gave all vaccinations (Hillcrest Vet, Clonsilla).

She was loved and well taken care of. She is house trained and lead trained, and is very well socialized with other dogs, running free in the park and playing. She is very good with children (when it is too much of activity for her, she simply retires), he is very laid back indoor. Loves being close, but also keeps our rules perfectly (she is not allowed upstairs in bedrooms). She has adapted well to our rhythm and activities. She is good in car and she does not bark at all (just signalling when postman or strangers approach the door). Due to her short hair, she doesn’t need special care or high maintenance.

I wholeheartedly recommend her to families with kids, as well as to single or senior households as she is truly a great partner for all.
At the moment she is used to having a little back garden, where she likes sunbathing when we are not in the park. It would be great if the next owner would have that too, or – if living in an apartment – can offer enough walks to the park where she has plenty of dog friends already.

Moe is a 5 year old male beagle. He’s neutered and all his vaccinations and worming is up to date.
Moe is not a hunting dog and has been with us since he’s been a puppy.
Moe suffers with anxiety and having a dog companion and baby in the house is not helping him.
Moe needs a quiet and calm home without other animals or children where he can offer someone all the love he has to give.
He is very much a beagle, he’s very clever and obedient but he needs to get out of the house every day and is a lover of routine.
