Adopt a Dog - See available dogs below

BARRC dogs are part of our extended family, we ensure they are sterilised and microchipped.

Our aim is to match the dog to the owner and our adoption service includes post-adoption support and care to ensure success.

Our adoption fee includes a general health check, flea and worming treatment, vaccination, microchipping and desexing.  If the dog is too young for desexing, a voucher is provided.  A 14 day adoption trial period is available when adopting an animal from BARRC.

 

At BARRC we think of ourselves as one big growing family, thus with every adoption, we gain a new family member. We consider ourselves as supporters of adopters, treating each new addition not only as an individual but as part of our extended family.

We strive to work with owners to be the best pet owners they can be. This means we work with our applicants to ensure we find the perfect pet that fits their individual lifestyle.

 

Post-adoption support and remaining in touch with adopters plays an important role in trying to ensure that the adoption is successful over the lifetime of the animal.

Name: Nessa

Breed: Bull Arab Cross

Size: Large

Age: 11 months

Sex: Female

Hair: Short

About Me: Playful & Friendly

  • I am a friendly loving young lady seeking a family home that will include me in everything they do and offer lots of play, exercise and continued training.

  • I get along great with the kids in the household and enjoy the company of other dogs that are not pushy or in my face.  I have met a cat before though this cat is familiar with dogs and was happy to just sit on the chair as I wandered past.  Not sure if I would find a running cat a little too interesting to not give chase to.

  • So if you have an active lifestyle, want to include me indoors with the family and have friends with doggy mates that I can play with, we would get along just perfectly  :)

Rocko: Enthusiastic & Affectionate

  • Beautiful character in this boy

  • I am dog friendly and like kids (though not lived with those under 10)

  • I enjoy chasing cats

  • I may have the urge to mark my territory but after that I am pretty much fully housetrained.

  • My foster carer describes me as having a ‘fat’ time when there are dogs to play with.  

  • I do enjoy jumping up for face kisses but am beginning to learn that this is not acceptable.

  • I can't get anywhere fast enough! But I won't pull when on a lead.

Broly: On Hold

  • I will love you, lavish all my attention on you and only you.

  • Other four legged doggy friend are nothing compared to you and I am happy with or without them, as long as we are close to each other.  

  • I love a lazy afternoon spent at your side or a romantic stroll through the park, the birds don’t distract me from you and they can happily live with us, as long as we are together.  

  • Cats…ummm I am not sure about those sneaky beasts but will tolerate them if that is what you desire.

  • Mini humans are so cute and remind me of you, so I am gentle and kind to all I have met.

Chip2.jpg

Chip: On Hold

  • I’m looking for some humans who are keen to involve me in their everyday life, I love being around my people and seeing what you’re getting up to!

  • I’m still getting used to the life of luxury. IBM have these things called “toys” which are interesting, but I’m still working out what they’re supposed to do. The human threw one and yelled “fetch” I’m not sure what I was meant to do with that, but I’ll work it out, surely. 

  • I know some cool tricks, like sit and stay. I also know how to wait and go on my mat when I’m told. I like to please my people and could probably learn more with someone willing to put the effort in.

  • I don’t enjoy being on my own much. Sometimes I can be occupied with a bone, but I really just want to be with you the most!  I get a little anxious being away from my people, but I’m sure I can learn to part with you when you have human things to do... grudgingly.
