If you're looking to add a furry friend to your family, look no further than the Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary.

Gender - Female

Age - 11 months old

Breed - Collie x

Addison is an adorable super smart dog that loves to learn. 

She hasn’t had the best start to life but there's plenty of potential here for someone willing to put in time and effort.

Her new owner needs to be patient and give her time so that she can build up her confidence with the outside world.

Addison can live with a well behaved, confident dog but not other pets or children under 16.

Her forever home needs to have a private garden with 6ft fencing all around as well as an owner that will take the time to gradually build up how long she can be left alone.

Find out more about how to give Addison a forever home.

Gender - Male

Age - 3 years old

Breed - French Bulldog

As you can see, Bengie is incredibly handsome and is very friendly around people.

He needs to be the only pet in the home but is well-behaved around other dogs on walks and can live with children aged 14 and over.

After surgery on both ears, he is almost totally deaf which means there are a lot of needs any prospective owner will need to consider when giving him a forever home.

Benjie requires a set routine without too many distractions in the home and his new owners will need to bring him back for sanctuary-covered vet checks relating to his post-operative ear surgery and forthcoming airway surgery 2-3 months after adopting.

His new owner should give him minimal walks daily and not over-exert him and they should be financially secure enough to afford ongoing vet bills.

Gender - Male

Age - 5 years old

Colour - White and black Crossbreed terrier

Banksy loves to play and be around people.

He would be best in a home where his owner is around most of the time and is free to take him on long walks.

Banksy is looking for a home without other pets and children that has a garden for him to play in.

He needs an owner who knows about resource guarding and you should only apply if you do understand what this behaviour means.

One of the sanctuary's behaviourists will be on hand to provide the lucky owner with support though.
