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.

FINALLY - no dog in any rescue anywhere in the UK is a perfect dog.  If you want a PERFECT DOG we have the information you need to obtain one, please click PERFECT DOG

< Gizmo

WELCOME GIZMO (medium exercise)

 

Gizmo is a 9 years old Shih Tzu.  He has had a difficult and disturbed past and wasn't socialised with either dogs or people. 

However he has really bonded with his foster mom, proving he enjoys human company.   He is a loving little lad and needs to be allowed to form a strong bond with his new owner.

In his foster home his confidence has improved and he is now allowing strangers to stroke him.

Gizmo is learning to socialise with dogs of all sizes and both sexes, but on the lead he can be defensive towards some dogs.  He is much happier off lead when meeting other dogs. 

The good news is that he has lived happily with other friendly dogs in the foster home, sharing the sofa and bed with them.

Gizmo enjoys walks and needs a medium level of exercise.

He has proved he is an adaptable dog who enjoys going to new places. The foster can let him off lead in safe areas.

Gizmo is fully house trained and well behaved..He can be left a few hours but gets miserable if left alone for long periods. 

Gizmo is an adorable dog, he is a lovely companion and pet.  He sleeps on the foster's bed at night and this really improves his happiness and confidence.

We are looking for a home with

  • experienced confident owners
  • knowledge of reward based training methods
  • no young children, older teenagers with lots of dog experience would be OK
  • not left for long hours alone
  • a garden is not essential because he doesn't want to stand in the garden, he wants to go for walks

< Hattie

WELCOME HATTIE (medium exercise)

 

WAKE UP EVERYONE - this is the dog you have waited for all your life. What a wonderful girl she is, loving, loyal, intelligent, loves everyone she meets and is dog friendly.

Hattie would love to live with another dog and be taken long walks.

She is a super, knee high dog who can pull strongly on the lead so would need to be walked in a "Happy at Heel" harness by Ancol obtained from Amazon. Fantastic off lead, gets over excited at the beginning of a walk but soon settles.

Hattie is fostered with dogs of all shapes and sizes she is no trouble at all.

She is slightly overweight but that is soon put right with enough exercise. She's only four years old but acts like a puppy.

You will go a long way to find such a nice dog as this one.

NO CATS PLEASE

We are looking for a home with

  • companionship for Hattie, people and dog(s)
  •  nice country walks, medium level of exercise

< Ted

WELCOME TED (high exercise)

 

Ted is a wonderful 11 months Parsons Terrier who is a fantastic family pet for children over 10 years old.  He previously lived with a 3 years old child but proved too boisterous for that child to cope with.

As a typical puppy he is very active and boisterous so children would need to be very experienced with dogs and not afraid.  Ted may accidentally knock a child over but has no aggression and would never hurt a child.

Ted needs a lot of exercise and training.  Ted is fostered on a small holding with 15 dogs and he is proving he is good with other dogs but lacks social skills so bounces right into their face and leaps all over them.  He is learning very quickly that this is bad manners and is getting much better behaved.

Ted is exceptionally intelligent and needs a lot of stimulation

Ted is just a great pup who gives a lot of love.

Ted is clean in the house, sleeps well overnight (currently on the foster's bed).  He travels well in the car but whines a bit then settles down.  He pulls on the lead but is good off lead with variable recall so needs training.

Ted suffers from Separation Anxiety so needs a home with someone around all the time and another BIG dog AS HE IS TOO BOISTEROUS FOR LITTLE DOGS.

We are looking for a home with

  • experienced dog handlers who know about reward based training methods
  • another playful dog
  • plenty of exercise and attention
  • securely fenced garden
  • not if both partners work
  • children over 10 years
  • long term financial and lifestyle security

< Whisky

WELCOME WHISKY (medium exercise)

 

EXTREMELY EXPERIENCED, CONFIDENT DOG HANDLER NEEDED FOR THIS DOG

Whiskey is a German Spitz Mittell 8 years old

Whiskey is a fabulous very friendly dog who is a joy to live with.  He doesn't bark or make any trouble when left alone a couple of hours.  He eats well and sleeps well and is very good condition.  He is good on and off the lead, house trained, travels well in the car.  He has a very happy personality and is always laughing and smiling.  He appreciates everything you do for him and is so grateful for a bit of love.

Whiskey bonds very closely to humans, he really looks you in the eye and tells you he loves you. 

Whiskey is a very kind and affectionate dog. 

He lacks social skills with other dogs but doesn't  fight or bite he just rushes into the dog's face.  He will bark at big dogs.  Some dogs dislike this approach and get upset.  He is being fostered on a small holding with a lot of other dogs and his dog social skills are improving all the time.

Whiskey needs to be handled gently as he can get nervous.  Therefore although he is very kind and affectionate he wouldn't suit children although occasional visiting children would be fine.

Whiskey can live with another kind dog who is very dog friendly, in fact it would be very beneficial for him as it would help improve his skills with dogs and gain his confidence. 

Whiskey is a gorgeous, very affectionate companion and pet and will be a wonderful dog in the right hands.

We are looking for a home with

  • a countryside home with access to long walks
  • lots of attention and love
  • someone around most of the time
  • experienced, kind dog owners
  • an ability to train a dog using reward based methods
  • not if both partners work full time
  • no children but sensible older teenagers would be fine if they are very experienced with dogs
  • an active home where he will get a lot of exercise
  • a garden is not essential but if you have a garden it must be securely fenced to 6 foot high
  • long term lifestyle and financial security

< Sasha

WELCOME SASHA (medium exercise)

 

Once again we come across a case of cruelty and neglect, pain and suffering.

Dear Sasha is an ex puppy farm dog, she has had the life bred out of her and was only finally discarded because her final litter of puppies died so she was no use any more.

She arrived terribly depressed and miserable. She was suffering long term neglect, deeply infected ears, matted stinking coat with urine stains, overgrown claws, rotting teeth in red, swollen gums. Never vaccinated, never walked, never loved.

This soft gentle girl is about 6 years old and is looking for a life of luxury where she will be spoilt rotten and loved.

Sasha enjoys going for walks, enjoys going with you in the car, wants to be your faithful companion and pet.

She is not used to children and wants a peaceful, quiet life of calm and a sense of security.

It has taken 2 weeks to get all her Vet needs seen to and she is only now beginning to feel happier. You should see her roll in the grass on a sunny day, she literally laughs with happiness.

This is such a loving, kind, affectionate girl who really needs a great home.

WELCOME MISCHIEF (medium exercise)

 

PLEASE READ THIS ADVERT CAREFULLY AND DON'T APPLY UNLESS YOU CAN GIVE THIS PUPPY WHAT HE NEEDS.

 

MATURE EXPERIENCED OWNERS NEEDED, NO CHILDREN

THIS IS A NERVOUS PUPPY THAT NEEDS A CALM, QUIET, PEACEFUL LIFE IN A QUIET COUNTRY LOCATION.  HE CANNOT LIVE IN THE CENTRE OF A TOWN WITH ALL THE NOISE OF TRAFFIC AND HE IS TERRIFIED OF CARS AND LORRIES.  HE NEEDS SOMEWHERE SAFE AND QUIET TO WALK.

This poor puppy has been passed from pillar to post through the internet selling sites and this unstable and insecure past has had a huge impact on him.  Therefore he needs kind owners with a lot of patience, a routine and a lot of exercise and socialisation.

Mischief is a very small boy, he is a Chihuahua cross Yorkshire Terrier puppy about 9 months old and has a huge personality and character.

He is very affectionate with humans but very anxious when strangers come to the house and will BITE LEGS.  THIS IS NOT AGGRESSION IT IS FEAR.

Mischief is very friendly with dogs he lives with and when out and about off lead, but needs careful introduction to people and dogs when on the lead because being on lead makes him feel constrained and anxious.

In the right home Mischief will make a super companion and pet.

We are looking for a home with

  • A QUIET COUNTRYSIDE LOCATION WITH QUIET, SAFE PLACES TO WALK
  • someone around most of the time
  • a similar sized friendly playful dog as a companion for Mischief

< Sally

WELCOME SALLY (medium exercise)

 

Sally is a very affectionate 8 years old rough coat terrier who needs a quiet countryside home where she can get 3 medium length walks a day without meeting too many other dogs as she is very anxious around new dogs

The foster is a very experienced dog handler and has deliberately not advertised Sally when she arrived in the rescue.  Sally has had several months running round the small holding getting socialised with a lot of different dogs and her attitude and behaviour with dogs is now much improved.  However the advice to most people would be to walk Sally away from dogs and gradually introduce her to dogs she will meet on a regular basis as she can be very friendly with dogs she knows. 

Sally needs companionship and love, good quality food and is not a dog who will need a lot of exercise.

Terriers are a long lived breed and can go on into their late teens.

Sally travels well in the car, is quiet and well behaved in the house although she will let you know if someone is at the door, she sleeps well at night and doesn't cause any trouble.  She likes a warm coat in cold weather.

Sally needs to be let out every 4 hours to go to the toilet so wouldn't suit a full time worker

We are looking for a home with

  • a quiet country location where she won't meet a lot of dogs
  • owners looking for a companion and pet who will spoil her rotten
  • 3 medium length walks a day
  • a nice sized well fenced garden
  • long term lifestyle and financial security

< Trevor

WELCOME TREVOR (medium exercise)

This fabulous Cavalier Spaniel is very small, he is not much bigger than a Shih Tzu. An absolute darling, he is good with everyone he meets, adults, children, and dogs. Housetrained, settles well at night (on the foster's bed), travels well in the car.

We believe Trevor is around six years old, he arrived with a very matted coat and blocked anal glands, claws so overgrown they curled over, and rotten teeth, some of which are loose and so he will be given a full dental with clean and polish and necessary extractions.

We have so far shaved him to remove his thickly matted fur, given him a bath and washed his face, taken him to the Vet to have his anal glands removed and get his vaccinations and microchipped. He will return to the Vet immediately after the Bank Holiday for the operations needed so soon will be a different dog, healthier and happier..

The Vet declared that Trevor has NO heart murmur and is in good general condition, not overweight and no major problems.

Photos show Trevor before and after his clip, his fur will quickly grow back and the new owner will have the chance to keep his coat clean and free from matts as it is growing. All that is needed is 5 minutes each day to brush him, not a big deal is it

In Trevor's previous home he was left home alone for 12 hours at a time whilst his owner worked so now suffers from Separation Anxiety.  So he needs an home where he will be spoilt rotten and given loads of love and be the centre of his owners attention. 

Only the very best will do for Trevor.

NO CATS PLEASE

  • kind, calm, experienced owners who can give him a lot of time and attention

< Brucie

WELCOME BRUCIE (high exercise)

 

NEEDS A LOT OF EXERCISE AND ATTENTION 

This is a SMALL dog about 14 inches at the shoulder very lightweight build.

Brucie is an 18 months old Pomeranian cross Chihuahua with a very sweet nature.  This is a bouncy, happy dog who is a joy to own. HE MUST LIVE WITH ANOTHER YOUNG, ACTIVE, PLAYFUL DOG THAT GETS A LOT OF WALKS.

Brucie is a very affectionate boy who needs a lot of attention and love.

Brucie is very fit with a lot of muscle built up by walking long distances with the foster.  He needs a lot of exercise, (he is currently out for 7 walks a day with the foster) and could easily walk the Pennine Way.  Please don't apply if you are lazy.

Brucie has been terrorised by children in the past so older teenagers would suit him best as he may snap when afraid of little ones who approach him.

Brucie is clean in the house if he gets enough walks, he travels well in the car and loves going to new places.  He walks nicely on lead and is good off lead.

Brucie is very good and sociable with other dogs, he can live with other dogs of all types and sizes and is not food aggressive or toy aggressive, he plays lovely with young dogs like himself.

Brucie still needs a lot of training and loves food so will do anything for a treat.  However he is a sensitive soul who is mortified if he is told off so positive, reward based training is needed as he doesn't learn anything if he is scared.

We are looking for a home with

  • owners with a lot of dog handling experience
  • calm, kind patient, owners
  • cannot be left for more than 3 hours
  • he needs to live with another dog
  • he needs at least 3 good walks each day and needs a lot of of exercise
  • sensible teenage children

< 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
