Help Hades find his forever home!

Hades has been with us since the start of April 2021. He came into us as his previous owners were unable to manage his behavior and knew he needed more support than they could offer.!


This gorgeous lad needs to find his forever home as soon as possible as he will be much happier in a home environment with a lovely owner who can help him with his behavior challenges. He does find kennel life quite difficult, bless him.

Hades has come on such a long way since coming into us and it’s wonderful to see is confidence growing day by day.

On arrival at the centre, Hades was very under socialised, therefore quite fearful of new environments and noises, but he has been a brave boy and come such a long way since, now walking confidently on lead and dealing with busier areas like a trooper. It’s exciting to see his improvement in such a short time and he will only continue to flourish in an understanding and loving home environment.

Hades has developed great relationships with staff here at the centre, who all enjoy spending time with him where his slightly boisterous but playful personality has shone through! He does have some bad manners which we are working on, but he has shown us he is a quick learner and is picking up his basic command training extremely well, proving he’s not just a pretty face! Once Hades is in a settled environment with guidance from a loving owner, we are sure he will reward them with loyal companionship.

He can be nervous of strangers, so any adopters will need to be willing to make multiple visits to the centre to get to know him, but it’s definitely worth it, as once you have built that trust, you will see how sweet and affectionate he can be!

Hades would thrive in an adult only home with no other pets, where someone is around for a good part of the day as he does worry when left for too long – if you think you fit the bill, please fill out a perfect match form…

We caught up with Sorrell, Animal Care Assistant at CDCH, who is Hadies key handler. Here is what she had to say about Hades;

"It’s been so rewarding working with Hades during his stay with us. From being totally shut down with fear on arrival, Hades would not leave his bed for 3 days and growled whenever we tried to make friends, to seeing him now and how far he has come is definitely a highlight." "It took time to build his confidence and trust, and get him used to new sights and sounds, but you now wouldn’t think he was the same dog. He loves his friends at the centre and nothing more than doing zoomies in long grass or playing tuggy/tearing soft toys apart (RIP teddies), and after all this he will settle next to you on the sofa as long as belly rubs are included."

Sorrell, CDCH
