A few dogs had obviously been abandoned and were being fed on the street by a local family. Melanie was sleeping under a bridge and eating where the family put food. Sadly, they suspected that dogs were being poisoned in that area so it was imperative for us to remove them quickly and take them to the safety of the shelter. Melanie is a beautiful girl who is very friendly and a typical playful pup. As she is likely to be a large dog when fully grown, we welcome applications from families used to large sized dogs/guarding breeds.

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 and our dog co-ordinator will be in contact with you very shortly to discuss your request. We aim to contact all new adoption applications within 24 hours and certainly within 48 hours.
