Yorkshire news The 19 Yorkshire pets looking for a loving home this year MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - Many ended up in rescue centres because they were abandoned or abused
Breaking News ! Owning a pet is one of life's greatest joys. While they may not be able to talk, no one will understand you quite like your furry or feathered companion. They will cheer you up when you are sad, give you company when you are lonely and love you unconditionally and with all their heart. Sadly, many animals in Yorkshire are currently at rescue centres without a loving home to call their own. It would be fantastic if we could change that. Below is a list of 19 animals currently up for adoption across Yorkshire. Before you adopt, please consider that owning a pet requires patience, love, time and resources. Opening your heart and home to any pet is a serious commitment which should not be taken lightly. If you believe you can give an animal a home, have a look below. Ozzy Can you give Ozzy a home? (Image: RSPCA) Adorable Ozzy is full of beans and loves playing with his toys - if given the chance, he would play with his tennis balls all day! The Staffy cross arrived at the shelter after his previous owner was no longer able to care for him. The lively, loyal and loving eight-year-old loves investigating new places and going on walks. He is a friendly boy who loves everyone he meets and has potential to be left for short periods of times. While he is fine with calmer dogs, he likes his own space too much to share it with any other pet in a home. He can live with teenagers who are used to bouncy dogs but will need a private and secure garden with fencing of 5 feet. Ozzy is strong on the lead so would be best suited to an experienced and confident owner who could also take part in some lead training with him. After his walks, you can find him tucked up in bed with his bone, getting ready for an afternoon snooze. Anyone interested in adopting Ozzy should contact the Leeds, Wakefield & District Branch Animal Centre. More information here. Pugsly Pugsly is looking for his forever home (Image: RSPCA) The approximately four-year-old Jack Russel Terrier cross Pug is looking for his forever home after a sheltered start in life. Pugsly is a shy little fella who is nervous around new people and takes time to learn to trust. Once he does trust you, he will become very attached. Pugsly is a bundle of energy who loves to play with squeaky toys and enjoys a cuddle. He does not like being left on his own but this is something that might get better with training. The ideal owner would be someone who is experienced and lives in an adult-only home with a private and secure garden with fencing of 5 feet and not too many visitors. He could possibly live with another confident dog but unfortunately does not feel comfortable around cats or other animals. If Pugsly sounds like the dog for you, please contact Leeds, Wakefield & District Branch Animal Centre. You can find more information here.

(Image: RSPCA) Hagrid arrived at the centre after he was found as a stray. The approximately one-year-old is believed to be Whippet mix, who is friendly and loves attention. After a zoom around, he loves nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa or playing with his squeaky toys. Hagrid does not like being on his own, but he might be able to learn how to cope if his future owner teaches him. His ideal home would be with no cats, other dogs or small furries, with a private and secure garden. Hagrid is a sweet and loving boy but can be quite nippy at times. He needs a calm, confident and experienced owner who will want to continue his training. He will also need further socialisation with other dogs. If you would like to adopt Hagrid, please contact RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield & District Branch here.

Jack and Will Jack and Will are a little bit shy (Image: RSPCA) Jack and Will are two sweet boys who are now looking for a forever home.

She has had a tough time of it lately and needs to be back in home comforts. Bronte is 9 years old and full of life and love for all. Sadly she has had many litters so has some mammary lumps in her teets. These will be removed as soon as Bronte can find a home where she can then recover. Bronte also has a lump on her neck just above her collar which will also be removed during the surgery and is nothing to worry about. Despite all her lumps and bumps Bronte takes everything in her stride. She is affectionate, very friendly and struggling in kennels. Kennels for Bronte are a no no and her aim in life is to spend it with a human. Bronte is fit and active and will need her walks. She loves her outside adventures and her playtimes in the run with a ball. She would need to have a garden to potter in after her surgery and also someone who has time for walks and play once she has recovered from her operation. Bronte has lots of love to give and adores people. She is a cuddle monster and so very happy once in the arms and company of a human. A home as the only dog is preferred and where someone works from home and can help her after surgery. A quieter home with no small children is ideal. You can find more pictures and information about Bronte here.

The approximately 10-12 months-old was found at the stray kennels, desperately underweight and she had a poor coat. Many deaf and white dogs struggle with sore skin. She has been seen by a vet as a priority and is now receiving baths and medicine. Lacey lives is a silent world so struggles to communicate with other dogs and people. She knows all her commands and responds to sight only.
. Lacey walks brilliant on a lead and has fast learned her sign language. She can be cheeky and knows when she will get a treat. Lacey walks like a cloud and has so much love to offer but can be mouthy and grabby. She needs firm and fair boundaries and ideally someone who has time to dedicate and has experience of owning a deaf dog before. Lacey was born deaf so has never known what is is like to hear and communicate normally with the outside world. She would suit a home with no other pets or young children as she struggles to communicate. A garden to run and play in is needed. Lacey will need a home that can continue with her medicated baths and sign language. If you would like to give Lacey a home, visit Good Life Dog Rescue's website.

Dixie needs a quiet, rural home
(Image: Good Life Dog Rescue)
Dixie came to Good Life Dog Rescue in a terrible state of neglect. She had infected demodectic mange, patches of fur missing and was in shocking discomfort through scratching and making her skin bleed. She had a very sad and stressful difficult home life and was previously a rescue dog. The stress she was under had brought about the mange. Dixie has now had loads of treatments and is now only bald around her face. Her coat is now looking amazing and her fur has grown back. Details about Dixie's past life can be discussed with people who are genuinely interested in her. The Labrador Collie cross is extremely loving and super smart. She loves humans and adores cuddles and loads of company and walks. She does not get along with other dogs and is very reactive when out on walks. This is due to being unsocialised at an early age. If frustrated Dixie will nip the leg of the person walking her. Due to this she needs an experienced handler or to wear a muzzle when out walking. This young dog is gorgeous and has an incredible nature. Dixie is only three years old and has been pushed from pillar to post all her life. A special rural home with an experienced person or couple is needed. Due to her stressful past and sad life previously she needs a calm and quiet home. She loves walks, play times and a ball, so will need exercise on regular basis with a confident and responsible person who is mindful of her dislike of other dogs. Dixie is very affectionate and pretty and really does deserve a new start in a five star home. Dixie could live with older children in a family but will need to be the apple of your eye as the only pet. Good Life Dog Rescue will support any veterinary care needed for Dixie's mange treatment until it is completely gone. A local home in Yorkshire is preferred and someone who has experienced of dogs that have not been socialised. If you are that special human you can get in touch here.

Luna is a high energy large Greyhound cross lady
(Image: Good Life Dog Rescue)
Luna has had a sad start in life and is now ready for a new happy chapter. Luna is only one year old and is a high energy large Greyhound cross lady. Due to her Sighthound breed she will not be able to live with cats or small furries and will need a responsible owner when out. Luna has been out on some woodland walks with our volunteers and absolutely loves it. She walks great on a double clip lead and is one very loving and affectionate young dog. Luna needs boundaries and some guidance and classes would be essential to keep her socialised if possible. Kennel life is not for her due to her sad background and isolation in her past home. She needs lots of company and a home where she will not be left alone for long hours and ideally where she is the only dog. Anyone used to larger Greyhounds would be amazing for this lady's future home and adoption. Are you this person? Get in touch with Good Life Dog Rescue here.

Jerry needs a loving home
(Image: Good Life Dog Rescue)
Jerry is an American Akita who has come into care after living outside in a kennel all his life. He loves to be out walking and having adventures and has now found a new lease of life. Thanks to a kind neighbour who has been feeding and walking Jerry he has been kept a happy chap. Jerry's new life has now begun and he will be searching for a new home very soon. Although Jerry has been introduced to dogs at the kennels he can be reactive when out walking. He needs someone who loves and understand the Akita breed. Jerry is very clean in his kennel and will need a home with a garden and someone who can change his life and offer him the love and freedom he needs. Due to his past life we prefer to re-home him in an adult-only home and with someone who can get Jerry into a routine of regular exercise and lots of company. An Akita experienced home as the only dog is needed. You can find more information about Jerry here.

Lottie lives for human attention
(Image: Good Life Dog Rescue)
Lottie is seven year old and very gorgeous. She loves people and is submissive and unsure so does roll over constantly on her back. She lives for human contact and attention. Lottie loves her walks and a good sniff about. She has shown no major issues with other dogs, however a preferred home is as the only girl where she will receive all the attention and focus. Blankets, cuddles and a human to love her and cherish her is what she needs. Lottie will need a garden to potter in and regular exercise. Please note Bulldogs are not dogs that can be over exercised and only require moderate walks. They are generally not massively high energy breeds. You can find out more about Lottie here.

Bella has not had an easy life and is now looking for her forever home
(Image: Good Life Dog Rescue)
Little Bella came to the centre after suffering some terrible cruelty. Despite her past, she is a loving, gorgeous lady who adores a cuddle and a fuss and just loves people. Bella goes out walking with other dogs whenever possible and has captured the hearts of all volunteer walkers. Due to a previous broken leg this young dog can only use one of her back legs as a tripod. She can bear weight on the leg but has a tendency to swing the leg around. Her back leg does not bend. However, Bella is in no pain and walking her will be no problem. She has the traits typical of the Beagles and loves to be under hedges, in bushes and picking up scents of this interesting world around her. Due to the terrible circumstances in which Bella came into the centre's care, a home is needed without too many pressures and with no children. Guidance and training as well as love and care are needed for this youngster. Someone who works from home would be ideal for Bella so she will always have the attention and awareness that someone is there for her. To find out more about Bella, visit Good Life Dog Rescue's website.
Can you give Boss a home?
(Image: Good Life Dog Rescue)
Boss is a huge character and has a loving nature. He is full of comedy antics and fun and loves a ball and a game of chase. Boss is a chunky chap who was sadly left homeless after his owner passed away and there was nobody to care fro him. Boss hadn't been walked for quite a while due to his owners illness. All that has now changed and although in kennels he loves his adventures outside. Boss has been castrated, full vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms. He brings much laughter with the volunteers at the kennels who adore him. Boss would be a fabulous addition to someone who loves this breed and has experienced of owning a Stafford. Boss prefers his own company and can be selective with other dogs if his space is invaded at all. A home as the only dog with someone who will show responsible ownership of bull breeds is essential and some knowledge of their natures. He would suit a home with adults only. This is due to never being around kiddies and always living with the same owner all his life from being a puppy. You can find more information here. There are of course many more pets up for adoption, please visit the RSPCA or Good Life Dog Rescue websites for more information.
