One of our rescuers saved Joey from the public shelter (see picture) where being small he didn’t stand much chance of surviving against the big dogs. Fortunately he had only been there a couple of days when she spotted him. It seems that he had an owner who loved him and took very good care of him but we know no other details about why he was in there – perhaps his owner died. Now, however, he is safe in a foster home.
Little Joey is extremely friendly and  follows his foster carer everywhere she goes. He is very affectionate, very friendly with people in general, fine with dogs but clearly prefers the company of people.

All potential adopters will have to undergo a screening and home check process. This can take between 1-10 days dependant on available volunteers to perform your home check. All volunteers for ABLDR are unpaid and do this in their spare time whilst also holding down regular daytime jobs. Please be patient whilst we complete these checks. They are set to protect not only the dog but also you, the adopter, from adopting the wrong dog for your family. If you wish to adopt one of our lovely dogs, please fill in an Adoption Application form and one of our adoption team will be in contact with you. We aim to contact all new adoption applications within 48 hours. (Initial contact may be made by email, so please check your email junk folder)
