We understand how difficult it is to give up your beloved Leonberger, but sometimes it is the only decision a Leo owner can make. If you are in a situation where you are finding it difficult to cope with your Leonberger or your home circumstances have changed, we can help you through the painful process of rehoming.  We will do everything in our power to make it as stress free as possible.

After you have surrendered your Leonberger, we will find the very best home for your beloved dog and will keep track of him/her to ensure that they are receiving the very best care. 

Our process is to find out the reason for the dog coming into rescue and obtain the dog¹s full history, including any health information. If lack of training or easily dealt with behaviour problems are the cause, and if the owner is willing, we attempt to help the owner keep the dog by offering training suggestions and resources.

If the dog¹s behaviour is too much for the owner or the owner is not willing or able to work with the dog, then one of a few things may happen. If the dog lives close enough to one of our volunteers experienced enough to do a basic evaluation then we will arrange a visit to your home to interact with and assess the dog. We may also use a qualified behaviourist to temperament test and assess and advise us of the choices available. Our dedicated welfare and rescue team are here to help and advise.

Any contact or discussions with members of our Rescue and Welfare team are in the strictest of confidence. We will not judge your reasons for needing to rehome your dog as we know this is a hard decision for any dog owner to make. 

For any advice or help needed with your Leonberger please contact one of our team, our contact details are shown on our Contact us page on this website.

We are looking for a home for a 4 year old Leonberger female who will soon be 5.

She hasn't lived with children so we would be looking for a home with older children only.. 

She can be reactive with other dogs, so would need to be the only dog in the household and is also not too keen on cats. 

She is house trained and lives in the home and is an affectionate girl who likes a fuss and is sociable with adults and strangers. 

She can be spooked easily, especially by fireworks. 

An experienced home would be needed but help and support with settling this girl in to a new home would be given by our team and our behaviourist. 

If you feel you could give this girl her forever home, please email us requesting a new owner/foster questionairre and please indicate if you would be willing to foster for us in the future if needed at:


Kind regards
