A cheeky chap with a heart of gold!

This handsome chap came to us back in July 2023 as one of the famous Moffat strays.


Meadow is a real sweetheart with an occasional cheeky side! He walks great on the lead and really enjoys a run off lead with his fellow Moffat dogs. We have found him to be gentle and calm when meeting new people and feel he is ready for the next step in his journey. 


A lot of work has gone into these dogs and now they have been given a second chance at life.


Due to Meadow's extremely under socialised background we will be looking for very specific homes, any applications received will be strongly vetted for suitability. Potential homes will need to have experience of under-socialised dogs, preferably large breeds, have a large fully enclosed garden with solid fencing of 6ft +.

Any potential homes will need to be extremely patient and understanding with their training going forward.


Meadow came to us as an unclaimed stray.

Re-homing Criteria

Any potential adopters of Meadow must be prepared to regularly visit the centre multiple times a week to develop a bond , this is a must and non-negotiable , so please keep this in mind when applying especially if you are not local to the centre.

We believe him to have only lived in a multi dog, kennel situation with little social interaction from people. They would all benefit from a confident, well socialised, neutered dog in the household of the opposite sex. The improvement in these guys since being with us is nothing short of amazing in such a short time, but there is still a long road ahead and any adopters would need to be extremely patient and understanding going forward with their training, as it is unlikely they would ever be an average pet dog.

We will not be considering homes with children under 18yrs or cats. 

A home where someone is around most of the time is important, and we are looking for very quiet homes and locations as they would not cope in a busy environment.

A totally secure garden is essential with solid fencing, not mesh or wire, of at least 6ft as they have all attempted to clear our 7ft fencing around the paddock area.

Each dog has their own separate needs and personality and we will be reading through all applications to see if any would match a specific dogs requirements. When completing the Homefinding Questionnaire, please give as much information as possible on your experience and circumstances. These dogs have come on leaps and bounds since coming to the centre, but any potential adopters will need to understand that leaving us will be a massive set back to their development , but this does need to happen so they can move forward. Adopters need to understand that it will be a long road moving forward, and will not be a easy task, but the reward when they are settled would be second to none!

If you feel you have the right experience, environment, time and patience to give one of our Moffat dogs a home please complete our Homefinding Questionnaire and we will be in touch if we feel you'd be a good match.
