Battersea Dogs & Cats Home


Name: Freddie
Age: 3-6 months
Breed: German Shepherd cross

Freddie arrived at the Home as a stray with a broken leg and vets suspect he had been involved in road traffic accident. Freddie is a stunning, active and friendly chap. He needs an experienced home where new owners will be able to provide him with consistent training and be confident in setting ground rules. Poor Freddie has had a difficult start to life and is looking for a second chance. This loveable lad would love to find a family to give him all the love, cuddles and walks he deserves.

Mince Pie 

Name: Mince Pie
Age: Seven weeks old
Breed: Lurcher cross

Mince Pie is a seven week old Lurcher cross puppy, and along with his siblings he was rejected by his mother and hand reared by Battersea’s team. He is a very confident puppy, who loves being picked up, and enjoys climbing up your arm! Like all puppies he uses his mouth to explore so he can be quite nippy, so his new owners will need to do lots of training with him, but he can be distracted from nibbling by playing with a toy. As a hand reared puppy his mum wasn’t able to teach him how to behave, so he will need a bit of extra training. He needs experienced owners who have had dogs before, in a home with more than one person, so they can share the training. He could live with children aged 10 or older, who are used to dogs. He could also live with an older dog who can be a role model for him. He also needs a home with a garden.


12 years old male mongrel, wire hair, small, dark brown.  

Name: Max
Age: 12 years old
Breed: Mongrel

Golden oldie Max is a charming little man who is always up for a cuddle. He arrived at Battersea as his elderly owner could no longer look after him, but he was well loved and looked after in his previous home and is a cracking boy. He adores being stroked and rolls over on his side for a belly rub. Everyone who meets Max falls in love with his gentle nature, including Paul O’Grady who fell for Max when he was at Battersea filming for the Christmas special of Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs on ITV1 this Christmas Day. Max is looking for a warm and loving home where he can live out the rest of his years in happiness. He can live in any location and may be suitable for first time dog owners. Because he loves people so much he doesn’t like to be left on his own for too long so will need someone who is around for most of the day. Although Max likes other canines, he’d prefer to be the only one in his new house as deserves all the attention to himself. To find out more click here.


 Mylo, Medium, Blue and Silver, Short Hair, Male, Shar-Pei (Cross), 3-6 months old

Name: Mylo
Age: 3-6 months
Breed: Shar-Pei cross

Stunning boy Mylo arrived at Battersea through no fault of his own because his owners had to move house and couldn’t take him with them to their new accommodation. This lovely lad has so much to offer his new family and dreams of a new home with owners who can give him lots of cuddles and take him on long countryside ambles. Mylo wants to be friends with everyone he meets and is always up for a game. He’s so happy and eager to please and will bring lots of laughter to his new home. Mylo is still young and needs owners who are prepared to put in time to train him and channel his energy. He is a social butterfly and could live with a dog and possibly a cat.
