Weimaraner X Collie


Hi my name is Legacy, I am 6 years old and I have been in rescue for over a year now. I know I have problems because I was not socialised properly when I was a puppy but I would love to be in a loving understanding home. Let me tell you about my problems, I do not like small children, their noise and running about frightens me and I cannot help it but I would bite them if they came to close. Also I react to other dogs as well especially when I am on a lead being walked. I do not mind them once I get to know them well and realise they are not going to attack me. I would love a home with say a retired couple who have a nice garden where I can chase my ball all day as I love this although it may get on your nerves after a while. If I could do this I would not need to be walked so would not have to meet my demons. Is there anyone out there who could take me in and love me, in return I would give you plenty of love back.


By Default

All of the dogs that come through our doors go through a period of assessment and medical treatment as required, this will enable us to discuss with you the current needs of the dog.

By default the dog will be:

  • Assessed by our Vet
  • Wormed, treated for flees.
  • Nutered/speyed.
  • (where necessary) on appropriate medication.
  • Microchipped.

Adoption Procedure

For guidance only:

We advise you spend time with the dog. Please be aware that it's personality will change over time as they/you interact.

You will be asked to complete a pre adoption/home check form.

When we have received this we will make contact with you and arrange a home visit, where we will verify your home check paperwork.

You will then be asked to complete the adoption paper work and you will need to sign the declaration to say that you accept the terms and conditions.

If at any stage in the adoption process, we feel that the situation is not right for our dog, you may be turned down. We don't have regimented rules on what homes are suitable.

If you decide to adopt one of our dogs we ask for an adoption fee of £175 - £200 (to cover some of our costs), this depends on the age and breed of the dog.

Sometimes we have older dogs looking for homes which we lovingly call our ‘doggy pensioners’ and for these dogs we ask for a reasonable donation. Older dogs make wonderful pets.
