Urgent help needed – Two beautiful Dogs need re-homing as soon as possible.



We are looking for a home for two beautiful dogs, one is a Husky and the other is a Collie and Akita mix.


They are both rescues, who we had been fostering from the KWWSPCA, but the shelter is at capacity at the minute and does not have room to take them back at this time. Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to move from home and relocate. We have had our hours increased in work and now have little time to give the dogs the walks and attention they deserve.


They are both approx 12-18 months old, male, neutered and chipped. They are very well socialised with other dogs, and with people, and are both really great with kids. Brock (mix) can be a very friendly but is trained to sit and wait for cuddles. Odhran (Husky) was not looked after well as a pup and is quite small for a Husky, he can be nervous and panics if his neck is pulled. For that reason we have walked them on harnesses to this point but we did want to do lead training with them so they don’t pull.


Both will sit, give paw, walk on and go out on command, both house trained. Brock will recall on name. Odhran can be cheeky with recall and we have also working on this with him. We do not let him off lead except in fenced in environments.
We absolutely love these two dogs and are devastated to have to part ways with them, we would love if we could tie in with their new owners now and then to make sure they are doing okay, with permission of course. We understand if this will not be possible.


They are vaccinated, wormed and very healthy. We will provide food bowls, bedding, harnesses, leads etc, as long as they go to a good home. We will look at them going to separate homes if needed but ideally want to keep them together to avoid any distress, but they are very friendly and I’m sure will settle in with other dogs if needed.


If you can help please get in touch by email yourell54 [at] or call 087 9957116 – and we will get back asap.
