When Speedy was found as a tiny puppy, the bones in one of his paws had been fractured and he couldn’t walk. The vet operated, putting in  a rod and a ‘necklace’ to support the bones which he then removed at a later date.  Despite his initial trauma, he was soon bounding around in puppy fashion which gained him the name ‘Speedy’.
Although in the end the damaged leg healed a little shorter than his other legs, he runs, plays, jumps as normal and enjoys his walks. He is full of energy and would love his own family – he has been waiting over a year. He is so good with adults, children and other dogs that he deserves a loving home. This sweet, friendly boy didn’t have a good start in life. We can change that!

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.
