​Meet Oreo!

Just like his namesake, 3 year old Oreo is sweet, scrumptious and so delightful!

He's a Bichon X Shih Tzu (a Bich Zu? Or a Shihchon?) who is at first fearful of strangers (human and canine) but once he gets to know you and feels comfortable, he's brimming with love and affection.

Oreo is a playful chap and he will quickly become inseparable with his furever owner, once that all important bond has been forged. He promises to be totally besotted with you, and shower you with licks and kisses.

He needs to be slowly and gently introduced to new people to help him to gain confidence, and he could live with older children, who will understand his boundaries and let him have plenty of space initially. He is quite large for his breed and also quite strong.

Oreo has shown reactivity towards certain dogs (usually high energy and excitable types) when out on walks, but he does like the company of well-mannered dogs, who he can get to know and trust. As such, we are happy to consider rehoming Oreo to a family with another dog.

If you feel you might be able to offer this yummy little man his pawfect home, please get in touch!

Apply to adopt Oreo

If you would like to register your interest in adopting Oreo, 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.
