Poor Jack is now back with us and yet again looking for a loving forever home. He has been returned through no fault of his own whatsoever, his new owners are unable to keep him due to their own personal issues. Jack has had a bad start to his life and we were hoping that he had finally found his happy ending. Please read the wording below and you will see what a lovely boy he is. After so much unsettlement, his next owner really must be his forever one..

Wording sent in by his previous owners..

‘Jack settled in well and with us and with regular prompting he quickly became house trained, slept well in his crate and also when left at night. We had a dog walker who reported to us that he was 'a dream dog! He doesn’t pull on the lead, is dog friendly, loves people and happily travels in the car too. He is a bit nervous when near traffic but with reassurance he quickly settles. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle on the couch at night. It is nothing Jack has done that has caused us to make the sad decision to return him but a personal problem and we do hope he finds his forever home quickly as he is such a lovely dog and deserves some happiness in his life' 

Branch Wording..

Jack is a lovely, gentle and slightly timid smallish lurcher. He has come to us after sadly being abandoned, he has a few scars which lead us to believe he has been used as a working dog and he may have even been dumped because he failed at being a working dog. Poor Jack can be a little timid when you first meet him but after being in foster and his temporary new home (see wording above) his confidence has grown, we hope his recent unsettlement will not be too much of a setback for him but his next home really has to be his last.

Jack is more slightly built than a lot of lurchers and he has obviously not had a lot of love or affection in his short life and we hope to find him a home to give him this as he gives it back in bucket loads. We think he will make a lovely addition to a family but due to his timidity we recommend a home where any children are aged over 8 years old. He will also need a home without cats or other ‘small furries’ too but he could easily live with another friendly dog. Jack really is a lovely, clever boy who doesn’t deserve the life he has had so far, we are sure that his special home is out there somewhere. If you can offer Jack a home for life then please contact us and arrange to come and meet him. Once you see him, you will adore him like we do.


Our adoption fee is £125 per dog/puppy and £70 per cat/kitten. The adoption fee includes: neutering, vaccinations and micro-chipping. All our cats are FIV/Felv tested. To arrange a viewing please send us an email and let us know your address, contact number, if you have children or other pets and any work commitments. Any information you provide will help us to find your perfect match. All our animals are based within our main branch area of Skipton/Keighley. Our emails are checked and replied to at regular intervals throughout the day. You can also call our branch line from Friday to Sunday. Email:  Telephone: 07949 229955.

Why I'm special

Jack has had such a bad start to his early life but he is still willing to show love and affection. He was adopted a couple of weeks ago and we all thought that he had found his very own happy ending. Sadly, he has been returned through no fault of his own whatsoever and is yet again in branch kennels. He really doesn’t deserve so much unsettlement, if you can offer him the special home he really deserves please contact us to arrange to meet him. Jack would love to meet you.
