We assess the dogs in foster homes and are very honest about their behaviour, temperament and needs. Please read more on our Adoption Page

We are looking for forever homes for our dogs, so please read our dog profiles carefully. Before you contact us, please consult thoroughly with your family: you need to be certain that you can give the dog what it needs both now and for the rest of its life.

Sadly we see spiraling numbers of dogs who suffer terribly because their owners can't afford the lifelong care they need.   Keeping a dog is expensive (especially when they are ill or injured) so please do not apply for one of our dogs unless you are able to pay for it to be kept in the best of health.  We strongly suggest you take out INSURANCE to cover vets bills click HERE

WE DO NOT normally REHOME DOGS WHERE THERE ARE CATS OR CHILDREN UNDER 5 YRS.

DOGS MUST NEVER BE LEFT ALONE WITH CHILDREN.
for information about correctly managing dogs and children here are two good guides from the Kennel Club and Victoria Stilwell

The behaviour of dogs is improved using POSITIVE REWARD BASED TRAINING, FOR VIDEOS SHOWING PRACTICAL EXAMPLES CLICK HERE scroll down to see all 10

Dogs CANNOT be left alone for 8-9 hours.  SO IF YOU WORK FULL TIME we will not rehome a dog to you unless you employ a dog sitter or dog walker, and we recognise there is expense involved with providing this for the dog.  Here is a good example of a professional dog walker that we recommend in the Kirklees area DOGGYNANNY

If you are going on holiday within the next two months and cannot take a dog with you please apply for a dog on your return.  It's not fair to adopt a rescue dog that we have spent so much time and effort to settle and rehabilitate then dump it in kennels. 

WE DO NOT SELL DOGS, however we ask for a Charitable donation to be provided on adoption to help towards keeping the rescue running.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT LET DOGS GO OUT "ON TRIAL". You may see the dogs as many times as you like before deciding whether or not to adopt.  Most rescue dogs have been through great stress and taking them home only to return them a short time later because owners change their minds would be cruel and damaging.  Dogs quickly form attachments and must not be returned as if they were mere objects.  So please, think very carefully and don't just take a dog on a whim.  As an adopter you should understand that it can take several weeks for a dog to settle into your home.  You must be prepared to commit to doing whatever is necessary to help your dog become a secure and happy family member. Our returns policy exists purely for those rare circumstances where a new owner is unavoidably unable to keep their new pet.

The following 2 photos were taken one month after the hip operation


Click below to view Boudicea after the operation



The following photos were prior to the operation

< Boudicea APPEAL FOR FUNDS

TRAGEDY !!! Poor Boudicea had to have a hip operation to relieve the pain of long standing hip damage.

****  FUNDING APPEAL ****

The operation cost £701.94 and there will be further costs for two months of physio and hydrotherapy.

Please help us cover these huge bills to our small Charity.  To donate click HERE

-------------------------------------------------------------

Boudicea is very aptly named after a Warrior Queen !!!  This is  not a dog for the faint hearted. THIS DOG IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.

This is the smallest dog, even smaller than a Chihuahua but has been returned by experienced dog handlers as she has a huge personality and bossy attitude with other small dogs. 

We are looking for owners who have a bigger dog, or no other dog if they can be around most of the time to keep her company.

Boudicea is a tiny teacup Yorkshire Terrier about the size of a guinea pig.  She is a little dog with a HUGE personality.  She loves everyone she meets and is very good with big dogs although she can sometimes be bossy with small dogs.

Boudicea is being fostered on a small holding where she runs 4- 5 hours each day around the fields.  She will need a lot of exercise in her new home so just letting her in a big garden is simply not enough.  It would be great if she went to a home with bigger dogs who already get a lot of exercise.  If she gets tired she is so small you can pick her up she weighs next to nothing.

We are looking for a home with

  • lots of attention and love
  • experienced, kind dog owners
  • someone at home most of the time
  • not if both partners work full time
  • no children
  • 4 -5 short walks a day plus time in the garden
  • secure fenced garden
  • long term lifestyle and financial security

where she will be treated like a proper dog and given a really interesting life with lots of love. 

NO CHILDREN PLEASE SHE IS SO TINY THEY COULD ACCIDENTALLY DAMAGE HER.

PLEASE DON'T APPLY IF BOTH PARTNERS WORK FULL TIME, LOTS OF TIME, PATIENCE AND EXERCISE NEEDED.

THIS DOG DOESN'T WANT TO BE LEFT ALONE MANY HOURS AT A TIME

Neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, treated for fleas and worms. 

Phone Kathy 07711617148 between 9.30am - 6.00pm or text any time. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR FULL NAME AND SURNAME IN THE TEXT.

Jack is a very friendly, affectionate terrier about 7 years old who needs a lot of exercise and attention, he is full of life and full of fun !!!

Jack is about the size of a Border Terrier, 15 inches at the shoulder. 

Jack pulls on the lead when he is excited at the beginning of the walk but if he wears a harness this isn't too bad and anyway he isn't a strong dog.

Jack is playful, he loves to play ball and is very easy to train using treats as rewards.

Jack is a proper terrier so terrier experience is valuable, he is keen on chasing birds and wouldn't suit a home where there are chickens !!!!

< Harvey

Harvey is an ideal family pet for children over 7 years of age where he will get a lot of time, attention and cuddles.

This 4 years old terrier is a super family pet, he has been used to living with a retired man so would suit a fit retired couple.  Harvey has never lived with children but is fine around older children who are kind and sensible with dogs.  He would prefer a peaceful. child free home but would be OK with visiting children over 7 years of age.

Harvey is a committed lapdog, he loves snuggling up on your lap in front of the fire to watch TV.  He loves having his tummy tickled.  He wants to be with you and follows you around like a little shadow.  He sleeps on the end of the foster's bed at night and is quiet until morning.

Harvey is no trouble to live with, he is clean in the house and a good guard dog.  He barks if someone comes to the door to alert you they are there but he is not a noisy dog, the rest of the time he is quiet.  He has travelled short distances in the car with no problems.

He loves going for walks but will be happy with 3 half hour walks each day.  The most important things for Harvey are company and love.

Harvey is good with female dogs, the foster had a Deerhound and Border Terrier.  Sometimes a bit anxious around male dogs because he feels threatened and may snap but he doesn't bite and he is not a fighter.

Needs someone around most of the time, may bark when left and annoy neighbours.

For a loyal and loving best friend, Harvey is the dog for you.  He loves to sleep on the sofa so please don't apply if you are too house proud to let him do this.

< Black Pudding

Black Pudding is a fat Spaniel - there is not getting away from it - he is a chubby, he is overweight, and he needs to lose a pound or two.  However we can't criticise him for that because most of us could do with losing a bit of weight eh !!!

However Black Pudding is a fantastic truly remarkable family pet who adores children and wants a home with children over 7 years old.  Such children need to be dog-wise, experienced with living with big dogs who are boisterous and with parents who keep a close eye on preventing children and visiting children hurting the dog.

Pudding loves people, he loves them so much he suffers real anxiety when left alone.  he is OK left downstairs at night when he knows someone is in the house but if left alone he barks and whines which upsets him and annoys the neighbours.  Therefore someone around most of the time is a must have for his new home and best a detached house so if he does have to occasionally be left alone the neighbours won't complain about the barking.

This boy is VERY LOVING. All he wants is to be fussed & cuddled.  HE ADORES CHILDREN! His favourite part of the day is going on the school run! He loves nothing more than being fussed by all the kids. 

Pudding builds a strong bond with his family. He just wants to please you. He fetches you his toys, your shoes (Not chewed!) as gifts for you.  Also he will try to fetch your post but these end up at bit tatty.  So may be worth a letter box guard or an outside box.

Pudding doesn't want to share his owners so will be best as an only dog

Pudding is very good for grooming, very good for the vet, he is very good in the car just lays down quietly.

He has basic training. He will sit, lay down & has good recall as long as there is no prey scent or prey around. He will play ball with you.

He is dog friendly outside the home. He loves to play with other dogs outside. It would be nice for him to make some doggy friends for playtime. Plus he will share his family with other dogs outside the home no problem.  It's different in the house however.  He is jealous of other dogs in the house. If dogs are visiting then make sure all toys are put away and be aware that he may not want to share his people with the visiting dog.

Pudding has a high prey drive. If given the opportunity would chase cats, birds, rabbits, squirrels, horses, sheep, cows, deer etc. the smaller prey he would likely kill if got hold of them. He would definitely worry farm stock. So he must be kept on lead around farm land & areas where he can be let off must be carefully considered first.

At home Pudding is noise reactive. He will bark at people walking past the house, dogs barking outside, cars etc.

In a nutshell he’s a typical spaniel that just needs a family of his own. He needs a child buddy of his own from the age of 7+ that is sensible around dogs & parents that have had experience in dogs in the past & are prepared to put some extra time in training him a bit.

In return you will get the most loyal best friend a family could want.

We are looking for a home with

  • lots of attention and love
  • lots of exercise
  • kind dog owners
  • not if both partners work full time
  • children over 7 years
  • no other dog n the household
  • a garden is NOT essential but if you have a garden it must be securely fenced
  • long term lifestyle and financial security

Neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, treated for fleas and worms. 

FOSTERED IN EAST YORKSHIRE

< Jack Rabbit

This adorable terrier is 4 years old.  He has led a very sheltered life and so needs a home with a lot of dog experience, time and patience to gradually accustom him to the world. 

For a terrier he is quite big, about the size of a Corgi.  He is white with patches the colour of a wild rabbit.

Jack Rabbit is anxious when he meets new dogs, he is scared so needs to be introduced to kind gentle dogs only so he can get used to dogs.

Jack Rabbit will need lots of short frequent walks until he is accustomed to going out and about, he is scared of the great outdoors and also is rather unfit and overweight so can't be rushed.

 This is a very affectionate dog who is not used to children and because he is so nervous we want a home with NO CHILDREN PLEASE.

If the TV is on, Jack Rabbit loves to watch cowboy films, he sits on the sofa with all his attention on the storyline !!!! 

Jack Rabbit is your best friend, and he needs a lot of love, so please consider applying for him.

< Lucy 

GENTLE, AFFECTIONATE, A KIND SWEET GIRL. Lucy needs someone around most of the time and another gentle, confident, dog friendly dog to live with as she would learn from that dog how to be more confident with other dogs.

EXPERIENCED DOG OWNER NEEDED WITH A QUIET COUNTRY LOCATION

NO CATS PLEASE

Adorable small young whippet girl about 2 years old named Lucy with a lovely kind, gentle nature.  She is very affectionate and really good with children.

Lucy is very good with other dogs once she knows them but barks at strange dogs when she is on the lead.  We are looking for a home with another kind dog that can give Lucy confidence with dogs.  Lucy is super to walk, and when she barks at a dog you simply turn away. 

Lucy has made friends with kind gentle dogs and met a whippet a few times who she adores and runs about with off lead.

The video shows her meeting an old dog, the video is taken in "real time as it happened" so you can see it doesn't take her long to get relaxed with a kind dog.

Lucy needs a country home where it is quiet and peaceful.  She really doesn't like road walking, busy/noisy places, traffic etc

As with most sight hounds she has a VERY strong prey drive so has to be under control on the lead.

She's fabulous with children but better suited to older children, just because she's so fast and strong when playing

She is nervous of most men initially. She's okay once she's got used to them.  She hates the postman, workmen, window cleaner etc   She's fine with women, and with men once she's got to know them.

On the whole she is very affectionate, gentle and well behaved, and in the house she is no problem at all and a delight to live with.

Lucy needs to wear a coat outdoors and indoor at night as she really feels the cold.

Lucy is good off lead in a fenced field, she loves to run and will come back when called once she has had a run.  She enjoys playing ball and running with it in her mouth.

Lucy is house trained, she likes to snuggle up on the sofa.

NO CATS PLEASE

We are looking for a home with

  • a countryside home in a quiet location not near busy roads

<  Pringle !!! needs to go with Fox Cub

IF YOU ARE GOING ON HOLIDAY PLEASE APPLY FOR A DOG ON YOUR RETURN WE CANNOT KEEP A DOG FOR YOU

COUNTRYSIDE HOME NEEDED

Pringle's best friend is Fox Cub in the advert above.

This dog would suit a small holding or similar place where there is a lot of open countryside where he doesn't have to go on the lead around town because he is terrified of traffic.

This may be a very small dog but he has a big personality !!!!

Dear Pringle is a very nervous 9 months old puppy who is so scared he will sometimes snap in self defense if handled badly.  He is therefore not good with little children, older teenagers with a lot of dog experience would be better.

This little dog needs kind, gentle owners with a lot of patience.  He needs to go with another small playful dog to build his confidence.

Pringle needs experienced dog owners.

Pringle almost always 100% house trained, he will have occasional accidents so needs someone around most of the time to let him out.  Please do not apply if both partners work as he cannot be left long hours.

Pringle is a very affectionate little pet who is very loving and loyal once he gets to know you. 

Pringle is good with dogs but is sometimes a bit bossy in play and will nip dogs when he gets boisterous.

< Teddy

EXCEPTIONALLY PATIENT, KIND OWNERS NEEDED

SMALL HOLDING OR FARM REQUIRED

Teddy is a very loving and affectionate dog who has fear issues.  He loves to snuggle up on the sofa next to you to watch TV and sleep with you on the bed at night.

Teddy needs mature experienced owners.

Teddy has been badly treated in the past so is sometimes snappy if he is handled in a bossy and confrontational manner as this makes him scared and he gets into self defence mode.  You cannot tell him off this really upsets him, instead you have to negotiate with him and persuade him to do what you want.

Teddy needs you to be very patient with him.  So if you are always rushing off somewhere and need to rush putting his lead on or moving him between rooms then your speed will scare him and he will freeze and refuse to move.

Teddy is good on the lead and needs walks about 30 minutes each. 

Teddy is good with other dogs but needs to be the only dog in the home or he could be rehomed with a kind, steady dog.  Teddy sometimes gets jealous when the owner fusses another dog and he will growl.

Please note if he is handled badly Teddy will snap. 

NO CATS PLEASE

We are looking for a home with

  • a quiet, countryside location he is fostered on a small holding and is no problem at all.
  • lots of attention and love
  • experienced, kind dog owners
  • an ability to train a dog using reward based methods
  • NOT if both partners work full time
  • NO CHILDREN OR FREQUENTLY VISITING CHILDREN
  • an active home where he will get a lot of exercise
  • secure fenced garden with minimum of 4 foot fence is essential
  • long term lifestyle and financial security

< Amelia

This dog is with "Barnsley and District Animal Welfare" click HERE for details of this rescue

Hi my name is Amelia.

I have been picked up as a stray so my background isn’t known but I am a medium to large young cross breed who has some big ears! It’s possible I am Shar Pei cross but who knows with us Heinz 57 dogs.

I am very friendly with everyone and I am also very focused and smart for my young age.  In my last home it would seem that I have been trained as I will sit and swop both paws over and I can also lay down.  I am obedient as well as pretty but still unfortunately for me I still have no home of my own.

I am currently keeping all paws crossed that someone out there may just glance my way and see my pics of me laying down and being a good girl.

I have been ok around other dogs and would love to go for some walks very soon as I have lots of energy to burn.  I am approx 18 months old and need a home with people who love some outside adventures and have the time to show me how to be happy and just how fun life can be when you are a wanted and loved dog.

Can you give me the home I deserve this time?

This dog is at Oakenshaw kennels click HERE  for opening times and to arrange a viewing

< Diva

This dog is with Friends of Akitas Rescue

Diva needs calm, quiet owners who are capable of handling a big dog, who can offer a forever home with long term financial and lifestyle security.

Diva is a 3 years old American Akita.  This breed is often overlooked due to bad press but it is a breed that is loyal, docile, intelligent and very affectionate with it's own family.  Akitas are good guard dogs and very  protective over children within their own family.  Akitas do not like being teased and pulled around by children, so sensible dog-wise children are needed who understand how to treat dogs with kindness and respect.  Akitas are strong willed and need experienced, calm owners to treat them fairly.  They are physically strong so need fit, active owners.  Akitas can live to 14-15 years if well cared for and fed good quality diet.

Diva is a friendly and inquisitive dog and she loves to have a fuss.  She is a calm, relaxed girl who shows no signs of toy or food guarding. 

NO CATS PLEASE Diva cannot live with cats.

Diva can live with another kind calm male dog.

Diva has not been assessed with children.

We are looking for a forever home with long term stability, financial security, big dog experience, a big enough house and car and well fenced garden. 

PLEASE OBTAIN FULL FAMILY COMMITMENT TO DOG OWNERSHIP BEFORE YOU PHONE US

 LAMBING SEASON - KEEP YOUR DOGS UNDER CONTROL

 

   

< Sky

Sky is with UK German Shepherd Rescue.

We are appealing for a very special home for our lovely Sky.

Sky is only around 3 yrs old, but has problems with her hips & hocks, which mean she will only be mobile for a few years.  Her Xrays show bone overgrowth and the vet has informed us there is no option for surgery.

So Sky needs a special home, who will exercise her regularly but not over do it.  She would not be able to do hilly walks, or long hikes.  She would benefit greatly from swimming, and the rescue will pay for 2 hydrotherapy sessions per month for her for life.  Her weight needs to be kept low, and she would benefit from supplements such as Yumove, green lipped mussel, and glucosamine & chondroitin.

Sky is a happy girl, who rarely needs pain relief, but will need it more as time goes on.  Worst case scenario in approx 2yrs time , she wont be able to hold her back end up.  Best case scenario she will potter around for a couple of years and hopefully reach 7 or 8 yrs old.   We simply don't know.

Sky has so much love to give.  She adores children.  She is fine with other dogs.  She is housetrained, travels well, and really enjoys the walks she does.  Her recall is good.

NO CATS PLEASE 

Please can somebody open their hearts to this lovely girl, and cherish her for the rest of her days? THE SKY IS THE LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF LOVE SHE WILL GIVE YOU.

Currently in foster care nr Oldham, Lancs

PLEASE ensure your car is big enough to travel the dog in comfort and safety without being squashed in causing it to feel cramped and claustrophobic
