​Meet Merlin!

Magical Merlin is around two years old and after suffering hardship in his life as a stray, he is looking for a peaceful and pampered future.


He's a nervous boy at first, but he has been incredibly affectionate and friendly with our volunteers once they have shown him that they can be trusted. 

He hasn't been for walks before, so an experienced owner with patience and compassion is essential to help him to come out of his shell. We would love to see him learn to play and embrace life, we know it's there inside him!

Merlin loves the company of other dogs, and he is sharing a kennel with his best friend Sam. If we could find a furever home for them both together, it would be a dream come true.

Like Sam, Merlin would really love a quiet home with no children or cats.

Can you offer our Pocket Pointer Merlin (and maybe Sam!) a home? please get in touch!

Apply to adopt Merlin

If you would like to register your interest in adopting Merlin, please complete your details below and we'll send you a detailed adopter enquiry form by e-mail.



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:


Step 1:     

The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.

Step 2:     

The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries.

Step 3:     

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.

Step 4:     

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.

Step 5:     

A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners premises to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is safe and right.

Step 6:     

If the visit goes well, you will be asked to collect the animal and for an adoption donation (amount on request) and to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return them to us if they can't continue to do so.
