Bonded Pairs

Sometimes our dogs have already found their pawfect match of the canine kind when they come to us and we just can't bring ourselves to split them up - so instead, we search for a special kind of home who can accommodate two beautiful dogs, instead of one. By adopting a bonded pair, you'll be rescuing two souls instead of one and your dogs will already have a companion to keep them company when their human family isn't around.

The term “bonded pair” indicates a duo of dogs that, for whatever reason, are strongly attached and need to be adopted into the same home together.

Bonded Pairs currently at the Refuge

Sam and Mac - Bonded Pair - ADOPTED

Sam - DOB - FEB 2007 | Male | Maltese X Shih Tzu
Mac - DOB - JAN 2004 | Male | Maltese X Shih Tzu

Hey there we are Sam & Mac!
Sam is the white boy and Son of Mac.
We are a couple of friendly fluffy's looking for a quiet loving home where we can have lots of human companionship. We both enjoy pottering around with each other and absolutely love affection.
Sam & Mac will need some TLC to get them back to good condition, which will involve diet, moderate exercise and regular grooming so they can show off their lovely winter coats again.
These two are sure to warm the right household and make a great addition to the home.

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Sam & Mac will require approximately 30 mins of exercise daily. They will need part time / stay at home workers as they can be quite anxious when left alone. They will require regular grooming to ensure their coat are nice and matt free.
Sam & Mac will need to be on strict diets and regular exercise so they can lose weight / improve overall health & wellbeing.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Sam & Mac have not been around children much previously but may be suited to older teens in the home who can give them their own space.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Sam and Mac prefer the company of each other only.



Sox and Bonnie (Bonded Pair) - In Foster

Sox DOB - DEC 2006 | Female | Rhodesian Ridgeback X
Bonnie DOB - JUN 2015 | Female | Rhodesian Ridgeback X Mastiff

Hey I am Sox and this is my gorgeous daughter Bonnie. We are looking for a family that would be willing to adopt the 2 of us as Bonnie stresses when I am not around, she is like my shadow. We have some medical requirements however we are generally easygoing dogs and will be a treat to have in your home. I am quite a confident lady and I will approach anyone new to say hello, sadly I cannot say the same for my daughter as she is very nervous and will avoid people where she can. She will come around once we have people who will commit to us and care for us but we just need to be given that chance. If you feel you can offer us a home then please enquire today!

MY ENERGY LEVEL: Bonnie will need 2x 30 minute walks daily and Sox will need 1x 30 minute walks daily

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Older dog-savvy kids




Lilly & Max (Bonded Pair) - ADOPTED

DOB Lilly - MAR 2009 | Female | Labrador X
DOB Max - MAR 2009 | Male | Labrador X

Lilly and Max are brother and sister so they absolutely must stay together - they are really one dog. They are very friendly, calm and relaxed, they don't jump up on people, they don't get on the furniture, and they are obedient and well behaved. They are inside dogs and use a dog door with ease.

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: The ideal home for Lilly and Max is one that has a large garden and a roomy house (they take up a bit of space). They are fine left home alone but they love being with people and would prefer to be where the action is so the more company they can get the better. They love children and are gentle and tolerant. They are eager to please and learn quickly. Their perfect day includes a swim in the river or an hour off lead in the park One walk a day is sufficient but they'll happily go more often.


MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Good with cats and other dogs
