We also have a dogs Facebook page which has more photographs and updates on our lovely canine residents.

Poppy, six year old spayed staffie female and Bobby, seven month neutered male staffie/lab cross. Ideally looking for a home together as these two have bonded so well. Preferably with a large garden as they love to run around together playing. Experienced dog owner required as Bobby in not very worldly wise and in need of training and Poppy can sometimes be funny with other dogs. Although some training/work required with these two they are such a happy pair that we are sure they will bring a lot of love andjoy into someones life.


New arrival Lexi is a spayed Mastiff/Boxer/Staffi cross aged six. She had a really bad start in life. Starved and severely underweight she was rescued by her previous owner who managed to get her weight up to standard fairly quickly. Unfortunately for Lexi she could not keep her as her new owner worked long hours so Lexi would be left alone for long periods of time. Reluctantly she brought Lexi to us to rehome. Despite her bad start Lexi has retained an affectionate nature. She’s excitable and always ready for a game or a long walk. She would thrive in the new loving home which she deserves. 

Thai is a six year old neutered Mastiff cross male. His former owner contacted the sanctuary when he got a job in Germany and could no longer keep Thai. We did not have any kennel space so he went on our waiting list. In the meantime, unknown to us, his owner took him to a vets to be put to sleep. Thankfully the practice manager took pity on him and got him signed over. They were able to look after him until a kennel became available at the sanctuary. At first he was very scared and nervous but now loving his new lease of life. He especially likes his toys and walks. Ideally we are looking for someone experienced around large strong dogs and although not aggressive to other dogs we feel he would be better in a home with no other animals having one to one attention.


Introducing Scoop, aged ten a neutered Jack Russell Papillon male. He was brought to us at Barby Keel Animal Sanctuary because he could not get on with his companion dog. So, he needs a home with no other animals. Although Scoop is an older dog you’d never guess it as he is still very active, playing with his ball and enjoying long walks. When he first came to us at the sanctuary he had very bad breath. The vet found it necessary to remove twenty teeth. He was probably in a lot of discomfort as at the time he was eating dried food. He has now fully recovered, he has no other health problems that we are aware of. We really want him to find a new home as he is a tiny bundle of affection and fun.  

Billy is a male Staffy Boxer cross and is roughly seven years old. He’s neutered and microchipped. Billy is a long term resident. He was previously owned by a homeless guy that could no longer look after him. He’s not good with children and will be rehomed to someone who doesn’t have any other pets. He needs a very experienced dog owner who will be able to continue with his training.

Lou Lou is an eight year old Jack Russell cross who spent the first five years of her life shut away in a shed. She is now in a loving home but suffers from serious separation anxiety.  This means the family she is with, feel that due to their work schedules they cannot offer the right sort of environment for her happiness. We are looking for someone who is
at home most of the time but who also enjoys long walks as Lou Lou is still very sprightly.

She is a very friendly dog and is lively for her age. She’s good with people and currently enjoys Doggie Day Care where she shows no aggression towards other dogs. At the moment she lives with a very young child but due to possible jealousy issues the owners think she would be best placed in a home without young children. She enjoys playing with her toys and is housetrained.  Lou Lou is spayed and microchipped. She has not come into our kennels as her current owners feel that this would cause her too much anxiety but Barby Keel Animal Sanctuary will still be responsible for undertaking the homecheck. If you think you may be the right person to help this very lovely dog please contact Dan on 07956995330.

Patch is a seven year old male neutered staffie. He came to us at the beginning of April due to the sad death of his owner. He’s not good with cats and needs to go to a home without dogs or other animals. He’s house trained and loves his home comforts. Patch is an affectionate, friendly dog who loves his walks, toys and playing in our garden.
