Lost and Found

If you have a missing pet and you would like to put him/her on our website please send:

  • full description including age sex or any distinguishing marks
  • if neutered or micro-chipped
  • area and date where lost
  • contact number and a photo if possible

This will, I think, apply mainly to cats but can be any type of animal.

If only a couple of animals are re united with their owner it will be worthwhile


Name: Millie
Breed: Cross Breed
Age: 2 Years
Sex: Female

Arrived 5th December 2013

Lost her home due to a relationship split.  Millie pulls slightly on a lead.  She lacks confidence, needs a patient person to build this up.  She’s scared of cats and could do with loosing a few kilos.  She is affectionate and craves attention.  She just loves to be groomed, rolling over on her back but stood up again when asked.  Takes food gently and is very playful and loves tug and fetch, seems dog friendly, loves people.


Name: Toby and Ren Reserved
Breed: Deerhound Cross
Age: 7 Years
Sex: Male and Female

Toby male

Ren

Arrived 18th December 2013

Large dogs, Toby and Ren are looking for a new home because their owner is moving house into rented accommodation and they are not allowed.. They have lived with other dogs and a teenage child although we are told that they are good with all children. They walk really well on a lead, one person can easily walk both dogs together.  Large dogs but very easily managed.  No sign of aggression in the cattery, fantastic to be groomed and handled.  Gentle with food but with no interest in toys.  Seem to be good with other dogs, good at the vets and travel well.


Name: Jinx
Breed: Cross Breed
Age: 15 Months
Sex: Female

Arrived 19th December 2013

Her owner put Jinx into private boarding kennels and then refused to take her back.  Has mixed with male Newfoundland, seems very affectionate when you enter her kennel.  She pulls slightly on the lead but this can be helped with training.  Medium size, loves fusses, affectionate playful, ball crazy, can be difficult to get her attention when she has a ball.  No cats, can be touched everywhere and takes food gently.


Name: Benji
Breed: English Springer Spaniel
Age: 4 Years Date of Birth 21st June 2010
Sex: Male

Arrived 20th December 2013

Benji is a nice boy who has come to us because he was too much for the other dog he was living with. He is a little strong on the lead but walks better with a halti on. He is responsive and willing to learn. Benji would be best living in a home with no small children and other dogs.  He is of very dominant nature, guards beds and sofa, anyone thinking of taking him should perhaps speak to our manager first, please ring 01430 423986 any day of the week but before 3pm.  Than you.


Name: Comet
Breed: Lurcher
Age: 4 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 21st November 2012

Comet was dumped at the vets, not this area, in Lancashire, he had severe facial injuries and part of his jaw had been ripped away.  Someone had tried to staple his face together using domestic staples.  We believe all this came from using Comet for badger baiting.  Despite the many injuries he suffered (we have a lot of sympathy for the badgers as well) and extensive surgery at our vets he was patient towards the veterinary staff but no small animals for Comet though.  He will need a strong, experienced owner.  He walks well on a harness, rarely pulls but can be very strong if he sees or smells something.  Doesn’t know playing and not good with other dogs.


Name: Kodak
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  18 Months
Sex: Female

Arrived 25th February 2014

Kodak has come into our care through the stray system. She is a really nice girl who is full of fun and waiting for her forever home. Kodak walks well on a lead but a little extra training would be beneficial. We have walked her through our cattery and found her to be ok with our cats, she did not want to chase them or bark. Because Kodak was a stray we do not know what she thinks to children but she comers across as a very loving girl.


Name: Jaffie
Breed: Staffie
Age: 18 Months
Sex: Male

Arrived 6th March 2014

A stray from picked up by the Animal Warden in Cottingham.  Walks well on a harness with no pulling, no food aggression.  Very friendly boy.


Name: William
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  2/3 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 9th March 2014

William, ours last October, then re-homed.  Originally a stray found in the Bridlington area.  Now returned for being unruly on a lead.  Yesterday 10.3.14 I did a limited amount of walking with this large dog, passing other dogs and people with next to no reaction and he was easy to walk  Will try him again.


Name: Kevin Reserved
Breed: Lurcher
Age:  3/4 Months
Sex: Male

Arrived 6th March 2014

A stray puppy from the Keyingham area.  He’s no problem on a lead, seems a bit scared of cats and with no food aggression.


Name: Buster
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Age:  2 Years
Sex: Male

March 2014

This dog is not at our centre, he is in a private foster home.  If interested, in the first instance, please phone the office on 01430 423986 any day but before 3pm.  Buster is not getting along with the other dog in the house altho normally he gets on fine with other dogs.  He is a typical terrier and perhaps needs a ‘terrier person’.  No children for this dog.  Although we think he is a full Yorkshire he is very large for one, perhaps weighing (guessing) about 14 kilos and as you can see is very hairy.


Name: Sasha
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  4 Years
Sex: FemaleArrived 13th March 2014

Our dog returned, has been in her home two years.  She was with a couple and sadly one has died, the other cannot cope.  Sasha has a super nature, she is a gentle giant, has lived with two cats and another dog in her last home.  She was also very good with their 4-year-old grandchild.  Could  do to loose a few kilos


Name: Dotty
Breed: Jack Russell
Age:  3 Years born May 2011
Sex: Female

Arrived March 2014

Snapping at the other dog in the house, this very attractive rough coated tri-coloured dog has lost her home.  No children and best as an only dog.  Great with staff in kennels, should fit in well as an only dog.


Name: Kim
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: 11 Months
Sex: Female

Arrived 22nd March 2014

Owners shift pattern has changed and hasn’t enough time for this large dog.  Can pull on a lead, walks better on a halti, was fine with the visiting grandchildren although she can jump up.  Can chew when bored but should grow out of this.  Can be groomed and touched everywhere, no problems but can snatch at treats, likes toys.  Could do with some obedience training as very boisterous, knows basic commards.


Name: Benson
Breed: Basset Hound
Age:  2 Years
Sex: MaleMarch 2014

Benson is not at our centre, he is in Holme on Spalding Moor with Lesley, a professional dog behaviorist, if interested please telephone Lesley on 01430 860472.  This is what Lesley has to say about him:

Benson is not quite 2 years and quite a worried dog.  He has come to us because he was snapping at his original owner.  We found no problem with this but when re-homed to a couple with 2 dogs, he bullied the Whippet X and again, challenged the human members of the family.  We find Benson to be very obedient and as we are always quite firm with our rescues, have had no trouble with any aggression.  We feel he needs another chance and a firm but fair owner would have a loyal, friendly dog with Benson but he will take advantage with a lenient owner.


Name: Wellington
Breed: Basset Hound
Age:  4 Years
Sex: Male

March 2014

Wellington is not at our centre, he is in Holme on Spalding Moor with Lesley, a professional dog behaviorist, if interested please telephone Lesley on 01430 860472.  This is what Lesley has to say about him:

Wellington is 4 years old and came to us because he suffers from separation anxiety.  He also had a problem with other dogs and when re-homed with a couple just before Christmas was returned to us because of this.  We find him able to play with all our dogs without much problem and he meets  new dogs nearly every day.  Wellington may occasionally growl but firm handling prevents this and he is then fine.  He was re-homed again recently to a home with a JRT but was returned within 36 hours because the dogs would not settle near each other and insisted in being at opposite ends of the room.
We really like Wellie and feel that with the right owner he will make a delightful member of the family.


Name: Esme
Breed: Staffie
Age:  4 Years
Sex: Female

Arrived 25th March 2014

A stray picked up by the Animal Warden in the Goole area.  Walks well on a lead with only a slight pull, loves to be groomed and take treats gently, no cats though!  She is very friendly with other dogs, she was walked with both male and female dogs with no aggression.


Name: Poppy Reserved
Breed: Miniature Pinscher
Age:  3 Years
Sex: Female

Where's Poppy? you may think this is a photo of a blanket but this is how Poppy makes herself comfortable, she does it herself, no help.

Poppy's a real little character

Arrived 30th March 2014

Poppy was left for long periods whilst the owners were at work.  She is not good with small children, ok with cats, best as an only dog and barks when left on her own for a long time.  She is a very tiny dog, about two foot high from toes to tips of ears.  She a very good natured, happy little dog now she’s settled


Name: Ellie Reserved
Breed: Dalmatian Cross
Age: 10 Years DoB 10th January 2014
Sex: Female

Arrived 5th April 2014

Ellie is frightened in our noisy kennel she daren’t move much, she stays in her bed.  She will come round in a few days and perhaps we’ll have a better photo then.  Her elderly owner has health problems and is no longer able to care for her.  Photo taken without disturbing Ellie too much.  Hence not too clear, she is very overweight, hopefully her new owner will gradually slim her down a bit.


Name: Nellie
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  3 Years Dob April 2011
Sex: FemaleArrived 1st April 2014

Family bereavement and no-one in a position to care for Nellie and Neville (shown separately).  Nellie walks well on a lead with a slight pull, she is excellent to handle and was good when we bathed her, takes treats gently.  Medium to large in size.


Name: Neville
Breed: Rottie Cross
Age:   3 Years DoB April 2011
Sex: Male

Arrived 1st April 2014

Neville and Nellie are both in as there has been a family bereavement and no-one is in a position to look after the dogs.   Neville is a large dog and walks well on a lead although he can be strong when he wants to be.  He is excellent to handle and can be touched all over, takes food very gently and was brilliant when bathed.


Name: Princess
Breed: Shih Tzu
Age: 4 Years DoB 25.5.10
Sex: FemaleArrived 1st April 2014

Owner working long hours.  As yet Princess has not settled well here, she’s very frightened and mistrusting.  She will settle soon and then her true character will come out but we will be looking for a home with no small children.  She has on a buster collar as she has been to the vets for neutering and a fur de-matt.  These are small dogs but their coats do need a lot of attention, often costing £30 every couple of months for a professional groom.

14th – Princess has really come out of her shell in the last few days, she loves her walks and is much happier and friendlier in herself.  This is Princess in one of the outside runs, photo taken today, she has never ventured that far before:


Name: Alfie Reserved
Breed: Cross Breed Labradoodle Type
Age: 2 Years born June 2012
Sex: Male

Arrived 3rd April 2014

Our dog returned after one year, was Oscar with us, owner now working longer hours and cannot cope with his behaviour.  He is extremely boisterous, excitable and needs training!!!.  He chases rabbits and needs to be walked on a halti as there is no controlling his on a normal lead.  He liked being groomed when you get him to stay still and can be touched all over including feet and ears, no aggression.  He is very friendly to everyone but would probably scare children with his erratic behaviour.  He needs an experienced owner.


Name: Marley Reserved
Breed: Spaniel Collie Cross
Age:  19 Months
Sex: MaleArrived 7th April 2014

Again, just arrived, guarding the children of the house.  No children next time. Medium size.


Name: Blackie
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  10 Years born January 2004
Sex: Female

Arrived 14th April 2014

Collected as a stray in Long Riston, is chipped but on follow-up the owner had died and no-one else in the family wanted Blackie.  She’s 10 years old but very active and fit, seems an easy to manage dog,  When asked to sit for the photo she sat straight away, seems no bother.  In good condition, nice shiny coat.


Name: Nattie
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  18 Months
Sex: Female

Arrived 14th April 2014

A stray from the Snaith area.  Attractive rough coated dog possibly a Bedlington x Whippet.


Name: Natalia
Breed: Labrador Cross
Age: 1 Year
Sex: Female

Arrived 14th April 2014

Another stray dog (area unknown) in via the Animal Warden.  She has served her time in council care, no-one has claimed her.   Very bouncy dog, needs some training but extremely friendly.


Name: Spud
Breed: Lurcher
Age: 2 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 11th April 2014

A stray, picked up by the Animal Warden in Fridaythorpe near Bridlington.  Very friendly


Name: Benson
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: 18 Months
Sex: MaleArrived 12th April 2014

Benson is a lovely friendly dog but has lost his home due to the fact he dominated and bullied the other 6-year-old male Labrador in the house.  He also kept the cats out of the house and out of the garden as well and he chased the chickens.  On the plus side he was well-behaved and gentle with the grandchildren of 5 and 8 years.  Really good at the vets but not use to car travel.  Benson wants a home where he is the only dog and no cats please.
