Age: 11 Years
11 year old Terrier Ralf came into our care when his owner moved into accommodation where pets are not permitted. He had lived with his previous owner since he was a puppy.
Ralf is a quirky little character. He absolutely loves the company of people, and he adores going for walks, but he can be a bit of a grumpy old chap.
He enjoys a back scratch and he looks so cute when he sits up on his hind legs for a treat, but he is not keen on being touched on the head. He can also be bad tempered if he gets woken up when he's having a nice snooze.
Ralf's ideal new owner would be a compassionate soul who would respect his fears, his need for space and embrace his quirks. It takes him time to trust, so patience and kindness is important.
He doesn't ask for much; this little old man just wants a comfy bed in a warm, peaceful home, and a nice, sniffy walk every day. Ralf needs understanding, company and love more than anything else.

We have a number of animals in our care. Most are homeless through no fault of their own and are looking for furever homes and owners who can give them the love and attention they deserve.
Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with our adoption process:
The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.
The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries.
The appropriate team leader will liaise with the potential adopter to get to know them and assess whether they are a potential purr-fect match.
The potential new owners meet the animal, and decide if they want to adopt. New owners may be asked to visit the animal several times before the adoption takes place.
A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners home to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is safe.
If the visit goes well, you will be asked to collect the animal and to make an adoption donation (amount on request) as well as to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return them to us if you can't continue to do so.
