Dogs in the North


  • 1 year 9 months
  • Male, mini
  • Red, smooth coat
  • Not neutered

Oscar is now looking for a permanent home. After being surrendered to kennels at the end of August due to challenging behaviours, he has since been in his foster home in Liverpool, where he has settled in well.

Since being in his foster home, we have learned more about his behaviours and it seems that Oscar can be reactive to strangers whilst out walking; he lunges and barks and has attempted to bite. He can also be reactive to other dogs, especially bigger dogs so he is mostly walked on lead but enjoys a run out in an enclosed field.

His current foster carers describe him as a very sweet loving little boy, once he gets to know you. However, he needs to go to a home with more time to work on his behaviours.  The Red Foundation will provide support on his behaviour training.

Requirements in a home:

  • Adult only, calm home with minimal visitors
  • No children
  • No dogs or possibly an older calm dog
  • No cats

Frankfurter (Frank)

  • 7yrs 6mths
  • Male, mini
  • Brown dapple, smooth
  • Neutered
  • Adoption fee for Frankfurter is £250

Frank is a timid boy who is easily spooked, he has bitten in the past. His owners have learnt to manage this behaviour but feel that their home is just too busy for him and as they are looking at starting a family, it’s only going to get busier and they feel he would benefit from a calmer, quieter home with less comings and goings. Because Frank has bitten he would not suit a home with children.

He is a loving dog who adores his walks so an active home would be ideal. When he’s out and about or at home with his family around Frank is at his happiest, he really doesn’t like strangers although visitors to the house are ok as long as they ignore him.

Frank isn’t really interested in other dogs whilst out and about and if they come too close he will react so we feel a home without other dogs would be preferred. Frank doesn’t like cats.

Frank is house trained, crate trained, likes to sleep in his own bed in his owners bedroom and can be left up to 4 hours.

Frank’s ideal home would be a quiet, calm, maybe rural or semi rural adult only home, somewhere he could have some nice quiet walks without too many people and other dogs.

Requirements in a home:

  • Calm, quiet adult home
  • Minimal visitors
  • Someone who is home most of the time
  • No other dogs
  • No children
  • No cats
