Homes Needed!


Homes are needed for dogs featured on this page, however these are not always ex-poundies, and are not always in the immediate care of Rochdale Dog Rescue.

From time to time Rochdale Dog Rescue is contacted by a member of the public asking for help to rehome their dog following a change in work or marriage circumstances, ill-health, the death of an owner or financial difficulties. Whilst we do not rehome pound dogs directly to the public from the pound, the dogs on this page are usually still in their existing homes, are in foster homes, have been signed over directly to rescue or are currently in boarding kennels.

In these instances as the dog's background is mostly known or it is possible to visit and assess the dogs ourselves we will aim to help or rehome the dog by featuring it on this page.

Each dog featured will have photos wherever possible and a description of it's history and current circumstances.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions page before you place an enquiry, this will help explain why it is only the dogs on this page that are for direct rehoming.

Please note that Rochdale Dog Rescue does not rehome to homes where there are children under 10 years of age.

We also need to ensure that if you do not own your own property the landlord has given their permission for a dog and any garden you have is fully enclosed and secure. We also need to make sure any dogs we rehome are not left 'home alone' all day and lastly that any other dogs you have are neutered.

We rehome within an approximate 100 mile radius of our base (but if you are close to this then please do ask us).

If you think you could offer any of the dogs a loving home then please complete our Rehoming Enquiry Form in the first instance.

LUCY





Please meet Lucy, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, approximately 8-10 years old. She is brindle with a grey muzzle and she is smallish in size.

Lucy was found abandoned by an empty house with another staffie; sadly he is no longer with us due to untreated health conditions but Lucy is still here patiently waiting for a new sofa and family to call her own.

Lucy is a friendly girl; She likes cuddles and walks and is quite active for her age.

She would need to be an only dog in her new family; but is quite easy to manage out and about on a walk.

If you are interested in finding out more about offering a permanent home please complete our re-homing form above.

Lucy has been Spayed, Fully Vaccinated and Microchipped.





MAX





Please meet Max, a Staffie Cross, male, approximately 3-4 years old. He is black and white and he is medium to large in size.

Max is a friendly boy who walks nicely on the lead and he likes playing ball and being busy, so would love a home where he can do more training and activities - he has recently started having weekly agility sessions which he has taken to very well.

Max has been re-homed before and came back because he was showing some pushy behaviour to the ladies in the house; with other family members he was fine.

He can also be unnerved by certain people approaching him when out and about if they come into his space - so he just needs a home with a calm confident owner who can keep him safe and secure when out and about.

He is good with most dogs so could potentially live with another one but cats are a no.

Max has been with us a little while and would love to find that loving home who will give him time to settle into a home environment as will be different from kennel life for him and someone who loves doggy activities as much as he does!

Max has been neutered, Fully Vaccinated and Microchipped.





REG





Please meet Reg, a Cross Breed, male, approximately 3-4 years old. He is black with brindle head and legs and the most soulful eyes, he has a smooth coat and he is large in size.

Reg is a friendly sweet boy with a fun loving and playful personality. He can be a little boisterous in the kennel environment but once in a home is a completely different dog, loyal, loving and calm. He is an active boy who likes being out and about enjoying life.

Reg does need to be an only dog as he does not get on with all dogs. He has lived with children in a previous home and is really good with them. Reg is also house trained, non destructive, OK to be left home alone and he travels well.

HOLLY



Please meet Holly, a Cross Breed, (poss Labrador x Staffie) female, approximately 2 years old. She is black with a white chest, she has a short coat and she is medium in size.

Holly was handed in as a stray & was not claimed unclaimed. She has had a broken back leg & ribs at some stage which was left untreated - could have been kicked or in an accident. Rochdale Dog Rescue have paid for her to have X-rays and the vet is happy that although she has slight deformities her injuries are fully healed and do not affect her day to day life.

Holly is very fit & active and likes a good run, she is self limiting and will sit or lay down when she has had enough. Holly is quite clumsy due to her leg so is best suited to an adult home or with older children.

Holly is a gem in the house, quiet, house trained & never been destructive, can be left for periods without issues. Holly will chase cats so probably best re homed without them if possible.

She likes to play with other dogs, she is protective of her food / treats though with other dogs so a home as an only dog or with careful management at meal times would be ideal.

Holly loves people, she will lay on you and cuddle for hours, she is a stunning looking girl and although she can be strong and excitable on the lead she will walk very well wearing a head collar.

Holly has been micro-chipped, neutered and fully vaccinated.

Please meet Cara, a American Bulldog, female, approximately 6-7 years old. She is white and she is large in size.

Cara has a lovely sweet and steady nature, she seems good with everything and is very friendly. She knows how to shake a paw for a treat

Cara is good with other dogs, we are not sure about cats as yet but we can cat test her if required.

BUBBA



Please meet Bubba, a Dark brindle Cross Breed described as follows... "there's almost certainly some Staffie in there, possibly some collie as he has some slight feathering to his tail, sometimes I think I can see a bit of Lab, sometimes mastiff or Boxer - he's more like a small mastiff"... whatever he is he is a real stunner!

He has a slight limp on one hind leg which has been checked out and it's a slight deformity to his hip socket, probably congenital - nothing can or needs to be done to it atm but he may need anti-inflammatories when he's older.

When Bubba arrived at Lurcher Link, found as a stray, he was petrified of everything and everybody and had obviously been badly beaten but he has come on in leaps and bounds and is now very friendly and very playful but given his scaredyness, he will not be rehomed with any children under the age of 12. He is coming on in leaps and bounds and would love to be with his own loving family now.

He gets on well with other dogs and walks nicely on a head collar.

Bubba is currently in the West Yorkshire area in the care of Lurcher Link.

If you want to follow his story on the Lurcher Link website Click Here

He has been Vaccinated, wormed, microchipped and neutered. If you are interested in finding out more please contact Kaye on 01422 240168 (before 9 pm please)or email kaye@lurcherlink.org
