Trailhounds looking for loving homes

Listed below are some of the trailhounds currently available for adoption. We are able to supply a full history of each hound, e.g whether they have lived with children, cats, other dogs etc. We take in around 60 hounds a year; some we home ourselves and some go to reputable rehoming centres throughout the country. We ensure hounds are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and visit you in your home so that we can answer any questions fully. There is a £120 adoption donation. We have teamed up with PETPLAN Insurance and offer 1 month free insurance when you adopt a hound from us. If you are new to trailhounds, please carefully read our FAQ and training page to be sure that a trailhound is the right type of breed for you.

Covid-19. All rehoming is being done whilst observing government guidelines.

HOUND TRAILERS – Please ring Sue or Barbara if you have a hound you wish to rehome. We can discuss if you wish us to assist you to privately home your hound (either by it staying with you until adopted OR for it to come into our care until adopted)  OR if you are happy for it to go to an external rehoming centre, in which case they take over sole responsibility for it.

ADOPTERS –  Contact us and we will send you a pre adoption form. We have received an unprecedented number of enquiries all over the country since March 2020. We always match the right hound with the right family but we currently have more people waiting than available hounds.

As well as privately homing hounds, we also send some to other rehoming centres. If you see one on this page that you are interested in, contact the centre directly to register interest but please be aware – their own homing criteria will apply.

Billy, aged 5

Billy is 5 years old. He is a super friendly and happy boy who will need an  experienced home. He has been living in a house since 20th December and has had no toilet accidents. This will be ongoing training with his new owner. Bill will need good fencing and a garden to run around in. He could live with another dog especially one who would enjoy playing with him. He would prefer an owner who will be around quite a bit of the time.

Billy gets very excited and strong on a lead when he sees other dogs as he loves to try and say hello to them, so will need an owner who is experienced enough to continue training him. His recall training is coming on well but he will need a home that can offer SECURE off lead time for him, as he loves to get his nose down on a scent.

Paddy is a 4 year old boy who has previously lived in a home. He is a lovely hound who can get a bit anxious in certain situations so would benefit from an experienced owner. He is looking for an adult home. He can get quite strong on a lead so needs an owner who can manage a strong dog. For more details, ring WARS for a chat.



Jack, aged 6 and half

13/12/2020 JACK HAS BEEN ADOPTED. Jack is a handsome 6 and half year old chilled out boy, who is looking for a relaxed retirement home.  He is good around children and has seen cats but not lived with them. He currently lives with other hounds and may be a perfect companion to another dog.
Jack has had a bit of lameness when racing which will not affect him as a general pet. He has been neutered and fully health checked. He loves long walks followed by lots of kisses and cuddles. As with all our hounds, he will need a secure garden and owners with time to spend teaching him all about becoming a house pet. Jack is currently in our care and getting used to life on the sofa!
