Hardy Needs a Home

About Hardy

My Name Is… Hardy

I am… 5 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? Has lived with a cat before

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, over 6 years


Hardy is looking for a forever home. He is a very loving boy who enjoys lots of fuss and attention. He will roll on his back to get stroked and will bark if you ignore him!

When out and about, Hardy stays on lead. He isn’t too keen on other dogs. Hardy knows basic commands and will take treats gently. When he is excitable, he does mouth gently but this isn’t aggression. With some basic training this can be resolved easily.

Hardy is used to living with children and has lived with a cat before.

His favourite game is tug of war and he can be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

Hardy is quite a laid back boy with no known fears such loud noises or going to the vets.

He is a very lively and bouncy boy looking for a forever home!


Hardy is looking to be the only dog with a family who can provide him with lots of love and exercise.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
