DOGS at a Herefordshire rescue centre are waiting for forever homes.

Hereford and Worcester rescue centre has four dogs in their care, all in need of someone to adopt them into a loving home.

The rescue centre has provided a biography of each precious pooch:


Hereford Times: Rupert, a three-year-old mastiffRupert, a three-year-old mastiff

Rupert is a stubborn, cheeky, and comical three-year-old mastiff.

Sadly, Rupert has inoperable cataracts to both eyes, an operation would be too risky due to potential complications. His sight is failing fast so he requires an experienced, calm, and quiet home where he can feel safe. Adult only and pet free home.


Hereford Times: Maddie, one year old staffy crossMaddie, one year old staffy cross

Maddie is an excitable, energetic, and eager to learn staffy cross and is one years old.

She has never had a chance to settle in a home, so we are looking for a committed and patient owner to take her under their wing and continue her training.

A good sense of humour is essential.

A pet free, adult only home is needed for Maddie.



Hereford Times: Lenny, a young adult lurcher Picture: Hereford and Worcester Animal Rescue Lenny, a young adult lurcher Picture: Hereford and Worcester Animal Rescue

Lenny is a young adult Lurcher. His exact age is unknown.

He will soon be ready to start his new chapter with a new family, as he is currently still recovering within his foster home.

Lenny is the friendliest and sweetest boy with the biggest personality you can imagine.

It has been tricky trying to keep him rested since his surgery to repair his broken leg, but he is getting there, any potential new owners must be around for the majority of the time as he does suffer from separation anxiety.

Lenny will need to be kept on a lead whilst being exercised for the foreseeable future, mainly to protect his leg and as he has a high prey drive, with this in mind we will be looking for a home without any small pets or livestock nearby.

A home without a resident dog is best as Lenny gets incredibly excited around other dogs and this will not help with his continued recovery.

He wouldn’t be suitable for a first-time dog owner, any children in the home must also be aged eight years or older as his history is unknown.



Hereford Times: Bruno, a seven-month-old Lurcher cross pointerBruno, a seven-month-old Lurcher cross pointer

Bruno is a seven-month-old lurcher cross pointer.

Young Bruno is a true sweetheart, he is full of beans and loves meeting new people.

He knows his basic commands and likes to show off especially if there is a tasty treat or two as a reward. But continued socialisation is required as he can find new environments and situations very exciting.

Bruno does not enjoy being left alone for long so an environment where he can be around humans for most of the time would be ideal.

He is a very clever dog and would thrive in an active home with lots of stimulation.

Any children in the home would need to be eight years or over because he can become very excitable and boisterous.

A home with another dog will be considered but they must be calm and respectful. Although, he is a youngster Bruno can get overwhelmed and is more than capable of telling a dog off for being rude.

For more information on any of the dogs listed above call 01568 760033.

The centre regularly welcome new furry residents, so even if none of the dogs above are suitable you can give them a call and they can add you to their waiting lists.
