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.

Prior to visiting our dogs you need to carefully consider a number of issues, please read before applying click HERE

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.

< Otis and Lexi

This lovely pair of Pedigree Lhasa Apsos must be rehomed together.  EXPERIENCED OWNERS NEEDED.

Both are very affectionate family pets for children over 8 years old who are calm and sensible with dogs.

They love going for walks, AND CANNOT BE LEFT ALONE FOR MORE THAN ABOUT 3 HOURS OR THEY START BARKING AND ANNOY THE NEIGHBOURS.

They will need regular trips to the dog groomers which is a cost new owners must consider.

Click below to view a video of Lucy meeting old Bruce


< Lucy 

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

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 between 2-4 years old named Lucy with a lovely kind, gentle nature.  She is very affectionate and really good with children.

Lucy is not good with other dogs because she has been attacked recently and hurt by a dog so is now very anxious around dogs.  She barks at dogs when she is on the lead because she feels constrained and anxious if they come near her.  Owners would have to avoid her meeting dogs.

Lucy is super to walk, however she is dog reactive on the lead which can be a nuisance.  Turning away when you see a dog approach is the best way of her coping, rather than expecting her to confront her fear of dogs. 

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 - She gets very nervous and spends most of it walking with her tail tight between her legs, so maybe not suitable for rehoming to town/city.  

As with most sight hounds she has a VERY strong prey drive so has to be under control on the lead where there is any chance of her meeting cats.  When off lead she will chase rabbits.

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

She is VERY 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 so if you are not happy with that please don't apply for her.

NO CATS PLEASE

We are looking for a home with

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

  • 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

Needs love, patience, another kind dog as a companion.

Shiloh is a lovely puppy, a very kind, gentle Whippet cross Boxer about 10 months old and is a big boisterous dog who needs a strong owner as he is a strong dog.   

Shiloh arrived in the rescue with a broken tail so our vet had it docked.

Shiloh is a high energy dog who is very active and will need a lot of exercise.  He is such a happy boy, just loves to run.  He is a strong dog but hardly pulls on the lead he walks very nicely once he has had a good run.  Being a puppy he is still jumping up a lot so needs training.

Shiloh is a really affectionate, kind, family pet

Shiloh is dog friendly, currently fostered with a Labrador pup and lots of Chihuahuas and 2 cats.

NO CATS PLEASE

Shiloh has always lived with another dog so needs to be rehomed with another dog.  He loves going for a walk he will go anywhere with you.  Shiloh trots around happily off lead and hangs around with the group of dogs he is walking with and doesn't run away.  He comes when called and will do anything for a treat.

Shiloh is good with sensible children and will make a super family pet.  He is too boisterous for young children so teenagers only please.

Shiloh is well behaved in the house, sleeps well, eats well, travels well in the car and is a good boy.

We are looking for a home with long term financial and lifestyle stability. HE MUST GO TO A HOME WHERE THERE IS ANOTHER KIND, ACTIVE DOG TO PLAY WITH HIM.

This intelligent, loyal dog is a wonderful companion and pet.   Please consider him, he will be your forever best friend.

< Phoenix

Phoenix is an Apricot and cream smooth haired Deer head Chihuahua aged 14 months old.

She is timid, affectionate, and shy, graceful just like a ballerina.

Phoenix likes nothing better than sitting on your lap.  She needs to sleep with her owner as this little girl needs to know your near, she is clean through the night, although not 100% house trained in the day when she gets excited and has the occasional accident.

Although Phoenix is fine living with other small dogs she is anxious living with bigger dogs, which results in her not eating.  Phoenix is slightly underweight and will need a good quality food to help her maintain her weight.

Phoenix is fine around sensible visiting children, but is too nervous to have them around all the time.

We are looking for a home with

  • a quiet. calm environment
  • someone around most of the time
  • no children as she can't tolerate the noise and chaos, although occasional visiting children would be fine

<  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.

< 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

Please do not apply for this dog if you work long hours and intend to leave the dog without having enough time to give it loads of playtime and attention and three good long walks each day no matter what the weather.

We always recommend dogs are kept on the lead around livestock especially as we are in the lambing season now.

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 

THIS DOG MUST LIVE INDOORS NOT A KENNEL IN THE GARDEN

Phone Shirley 07922665152 between 9am and 5.30pm or text any time. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR FULL NAME AND SURNAME IN THE TEXT.

 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
