Our policies are simple

We do home visits

We do 48 hour trial

We do ask for a minimum donation of £180 for ALL our dogs (Neutered,vaccinated, micro-chipped, 4 weeks insurance, flea & worm treated and rescue back up for life of the dog)


All our dogs are neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, treated for fleas and worms, insured for 4 weeks and have full back-up from NANNA for the rest of their lives. 

All our dogs can be seen between 11 and 3
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday

Rehoming donation is a minimum of £180, you may give more if you wish

Jadie was taken to the pound as "found" by her owner!
How cruel is that, she is an older dog in double figures and has some lumpy, bumpy bits but nothing that seems sinister!
She just want to love you, she loves her walks, travels well in the car, not good with many dogs, so best in a one pet household.
This little lady needs a bed in front of the fire, NOT a cold kennel this winter, can you give her this?
Older rescue dogs have so much to give, all they ask for is a chance.

This handsome chap was left behind when his owner went home from the building job he was doing, obviously Marley had done what he was got for and no longer wanted.
Only a young dog, now neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and ready for his new family, he takes a little time to trust but when he does, he is amazing.
On going training will be needed but well worth it, he is a great dog and deserves a great family!

When we saw this dog in the pound and she looked so sad........... she is around 6 years old, we believe, she is FULL of fun and bounce, she loves to take YOU on a walk, but soon settles. I would like to think this dog was loved and not just got rid off, because she is so trusting and obviously loved her owner.
Again, because Mindi is a pound dog, she can only go worth children over 10 years old

 Toffee has been brought in by his owner because another landlord has said "No pets" So another devastated owner and bewildered dog in rescue!
Toffee loves to take you on a very quick walk, but long walk, so a healthy energetic owner/family for this lady, she loves everyone and react to some dogs but could be introduced to other dogs over time.
Chunky Labrador x, full of fun and love, she will be a blessing to any family. 

 Jake and Millie
Two fun loving "naughty" terrorist oops, I mean terriers! 6 years old and they are a mini pack in what they do, so no cats or small furry critters around these two and perhaps better that they go to older children too. Although we have had no issues with them, they are FULL of energy and they would benefit from an energetic family, lots of walks (they walk well on lead but can be a little vocal at the start of the walk), all in all, they would be a handful but a lovely handful!

Ringo has problem with his vision and he can be walking along nicely and then he goes and walks into a tree, he jumps up and misjudges exactly where you are and his mouth is always open causing him to make contact. Too many people around him frightens him as well, so a very quite but experienced home for this guy. We walk him and tell him a car is coming, that reduces the sudden movement he makes when cars/lorries go pass........ he is NOT blind as he can see a feather floating down passed his face, it seems to be dark colours (tree trunk) and he jumps towards light colours!
Not very old, pound dog, but we feel he would be better in a home without children!

Walker and Skye
 These two have been used for breeding and now in their twilight years they have been handed in to rescue. Skye has an old eye injury, but the vets are happy with it.
Walker is now neutered and they really would like a home together. Skye loves her toys and Walker is a little more reserved  but loves a cuddle.
They absolutely love to go on our walks and they have lived with other dogs, but perhaps time to be just the two of them.
Not sure how they would be with children, so perhaps we should go with 10+.

 Not seen a dog on here you like? Then please pop down to the shelter, your new baby could just be there waiting for you!
We are open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday 11 till 3.
This young dog has come on leaps and bounds since being with us and is now ready for his new home, yes he is another staffy in rescue but like most staffys, it is NOT his fault. This dog has so much love to give and he is very eager to learn, he is a pound dog so no children under 10 years old and he would be best a one dog only home.
Ronnie, loves his walks and he is now doing basic training, sit, stay and speak!

Bailey the American Bull Dog
This young dog needs an experienced AMB owner, he will push his boundaries, but he is eager to learn. Bailey is a typical AMB, he has been purchased as a "cute" puppy, put out in the garden and then allowed to get lost! He was picked up by the dog warden and no-one claimed him.............. so sad because he has had very little training and has very few manners. NANNA team have been working with him because he does "mouth and nip" but his "nip" is powerful, leaving good bruising and marks......
Only approx. 16 month old, so lots of potential for the right owner. NO CHILDREN but he is great with some dogs!

Molly is a red Staffy
Molly is a beautiful dog, loves nothing more than her humans but she IS dog aggressive and because of this, she needs to be walked on a halti or muzzled. She will suddenly lurch forward, whilst gently walking down the street, so she really needs to be watched and a firm control of her is a must!
This little lady has been used for breeding and possibly been "forced" into the act, because she would NEVER allow any dog that close to her!
Yet another dog treated so badly by humans!

Scrappy is "mental" full of fun, naughtiness and an absolute nightmare with very little manners BUT he is young and very eager to learn and "try" to stay within the boundaries. He is a stray, so children over 10 years old because we have no history, Scrappy is a good name for this name and his bubbly personality. Lovely dog with a great character! 

Hahaha another dog with a perfect name, Bouncer, he is great around most dogs and get on extremely well with Bailey the American Bull Dog, little dogs confuse him!
Very young and at the right age to be trained, can be an "idiot" on the lead but then he can be great, depending on his mood!
Another pound dog so again children over 10 years, little children could be used as skittles as he "bounces" his way through the door!
Young, powerful but huggable dog.

Lola came into NANNA because she was placed with young children and she is actually quite frightened of them, she is not doing well in kennels as she gets quite stresses around the other dogs. She needs an adult family, with experience in bull breeds, she is not aggressive, she will growl but as soon as she realises you are not going to hurt her, she is a gentle loving dog.
Just needs a loving, understanding home and family, where she can snuggle up to you for the night.............. lovely, sweet dog, with lots to give.

"The boys are back in town"
Frankie and Frostie
The pair of double trouble are just puppies but they are very close, they do fight over food, but usually they is no blood but an awful lot of noise, which sounds as if they are "killing" themselves!
Can you handle a pair of large puppies who hate to be apart from each other but a handful together.
They love their walks, they love to play, they love to have cuddles and they have only had 10 days in a home since they were 7 weeks old, so they do deserve a good home, their two brothers have landed on there paws............... please consider helping these two to land on theirs!

Thank you for looking at our dogs, don't see one you like? Then please pop down to the shelter, we may just have taken in a new one that would be perfect for your family!
07921 215049 is the number to call between 10am and 10pm for more information on any of the above dogs!
