NANNA has many dogs looking for homes, they have been assessed and will only be rehomed to homes NANNA feel confident is the right for them, please understand that our priority is with the dogs!

Our policies are simple

We do not rehome pound dogs to families with children under 10, because we  don't have a full history on that dog

We do home visits

We do 48 hour trial, giving you and the dog a chance to see if it is the right home/dog!

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)

Dogs in pairs will stay together, we will not part them.


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
Please note: We are closed all day, to public, on Monday and Friday
For more information you can ring us on 07921 215049 
Rehoming donation is a minimum of £180, you may give more if you wish

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!

Roll over Beethoven
Beethoven is a retired, very young racing greyhound, who had an injury to his leg. This is healing nicely and he is well on the way to make a full recovery.
Greyhounds love lots of short walks and a sofa in between walks! Beethoven is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to start his retirement at a very young age!
No small furries or small dogs!
07921215049  (between 10am and 10pm) is the number to call if you would like more information, or pop down to NANNA and come and meet him. We are closed Monday and a Friday but open the rest of the week between 11 am - 3 pm.

Jim a lovely Deerhound x Lurcher, he is only a young dog, but he is dog reactive if they come into his space, he is also very food driven. Jim will need a home where his new family has Lurcher experience, he cannot be let of lead, he will not come back, we have fun capturing him in an enclosed area, so out in open field............ no chance!
Jim is a pound dog, so he cannot go with children under 10, but we feel he may be better with teenagers.
Jim would need to be a single pet as he has very strong prey instincts.

Charlie-boy a fun-loving collie who loves to stalk anything that stands/sits still. He is a pretty well trained but has hearing problems....... problem being, he is selective!
With this in mind and knowing how much fun he has running away for you in a secure area, he will not be one for off lead walking, believe me, he is fast and refuses to come back, even for treats!
Charlie-boy is about 4 years old, naughty, fun loving collie, experienced owners would be great for this one. Older children a must because of his stalking habits!

Staffordshire Bull Terrier x

Small male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Young Jack Russell x Staffordshire

A beautiful American Bull Dog x Staffordshire Bull Terrier, stunning girl who needs more training.

Cindy and Belle REHOMED
Two lovely but very frightened little dogs who are just beginning to learn that they can run and play!


 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.
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.

 CILLA Not up for rehoming yet
Cilla is a very young but frightened little spaniel x. We have a plan in place to help this little girl gain confidence, so not up as yet for rehoming. There is a happy little dog in there somewhere, she is better with men, than women, but with lots of treats in your pocket.

"The boys are back in town"
Frankie and Frostie
The pair of double trouble are just over 12 months old and they are very close, they no longer fight over food, if they do they don't draw blood but they make 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!

This guy is a handful or armful of trouble, he is lazy, stubborn and a lump! He refuses to walk, loves to be carried, objects totally to running..... dogs aren't meant to run as far as Norton is concerned, he thinks they are there to eat sleep and eat more!
Sadly Norton came back to NANNA after having a really bad fight with his "sister" of 18 months, so this guys is a one dog household dog!
Teenage children only and definitely an experienced home for this stubborn, gorgeous boy.

Hector a young Terrier Lurcher, who is just over a year old, he is brilliant around most dogs but if they get in his face he will react. He is very, very playful but need to learn how to chill out. Lots of walking for this little guy or he will get bored, boredom equals naughtiness!
Hector needs more training and young enough to want to learn. Hector can go with children but we not little ones, we suggest 7 years or older.
Lovely little dog who needs training and an active family and home........ can you offer this young dog the right home?

Solo a fantastic Staffy x, he loves everyone and everyone loves him. He can be selective around dogs, but ANY human will do for this beautiful dog.
He walks well and loves his walks, he tries so hard to please whoever is working with him.
This guy will need an active family, where he will be a HUGE part of the activities. Solo has a very sweet personality, but sadly can only go where children are 10 or over because Solo is from the pound!
Fantastic dog and very loyal to his handler.

 Eden the beautiful Staffordshire Bull Terrier who really needs an energetic home, where her "bouncy" personality will be transformed into perhaps agility or something. She is FULL of fun and drive, pretty good around other dogs but can be reactive to some.
This little lady needs exercise to reduce her energy levels and stimulation too, so tricks and food games will help with this. She is a lovely bubbly little Staffordshire Bull Terrier and will be a brilliant dog.

 Cooper and Roxy
 7 year old brother and sister

Sonny and Benji


2.5 years old and stunning, very eager to please and a little highly strung around other dogs but just wants to play

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!
