Here You Will Find Information About The Dogs

Rochdale Dog Rescue work to prevent dogs at Stray Dog Kennels being put to sleep after 7 days if not reclaimed by their owners.

We work closely with a council contracted Stray Holding Kennels who provide us with photographs and essential information about the dogs coming in to their care so that we can during those 7 days ensure we have enough funds and space to bring those dogs who are not claimed into our care. We are often contacted by other organisations with dogs at risk of being put to sleep or by people who need help with rehoming their own dogs and will help out by offering a safe place with ourselves where we can.




4 DOGS NOW IN EMERGENCY BOARDING, 5 DOGS IN EMERGENCY FOSTER AND 0 DOGS IN THE STRAY KENNELS, PLEASE HELP!

Unfortunately the number of Bull Breed type dogs that we have to board are a massive drain on our resources and we are struggling to find the funds for Emergency Boarding.

Funding Emergency Boarding is only possible through your donations, and we desperately need to find rescue spaces or funds to ensure the safety of dogs arriving at the Stray Kennels daily.

If you can help with a donation or would like to make a regular monthly donation please use our Paypal link below or via the Help a Poundie page which has more details.

The following dogs are currently at the Stray Dog Kennels and need Rescue Places

The following dogs are currently at the Stray Dog Kennels where they will need to stay for 7 days to allow their owner to claim them.

They cannot leave before the stated put to sleep date.

Unfortunately, the majority of dogs are not claimed so we have to find a safe place for these dogs within 7 days otherwise they are at risk of being put to sleep.

We DO NOT rehome stray dogs directly to the public, but can provide more details on these dogs should they move to another rescue or be signed over into our care.


There are currently no dogs in the stray kennels.



The following dogs are now safe in the care of Rochdale Dog Rescue.

The dogs featured below are now safe in the care of Rochdale Dog Rescue. Once a dog arrives into our care they will be assessed, health checked, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. These dogs are available for rehoming; some of the more recently arrived dogs may be undergoing assessment still.

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.


No. 4667: SMARTIE (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Smartie needs a new home.
Cross breed, male, approximately 3 years old. He is black and chocolate with white on his chest, he has a smooth coat and he is small in size. He is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Smartie is a very friendly boy who is good with other dogs. 

"Smartie is a happy energetic boy who will like to be out and about and with his owner a lot. He is affectionate, playful and enthusiastic. He spent a week in the pound and was collected by Auntie Tracy - he was confident and friendly with all of her dogs from the off - no issues meeting and greeting dogs of all sizes and temperaments & mixed well. He is displaying a little separation anxiety at the mo in that he has been a bit vocal when left but he is improving already and we will build his confidence while in foster. He is still under assessment but we think he’s a little pocket rocket - Aunty Tracy was getting to know him and saw that he enjoyed doing a bit of agility - listening to commands to jump up and over little props. He retrieves a ball & recalled well - he appears to know a few commands already and will sit and wait. 

He met the friendly pet sheep and pigs and was giddy but no real prey drive or grabbing. He is a definite no for cats - he will chase and gets vocal.

He would love an owner or family who will embrace his zest for life, someone who will do lots of walks with him and who will work to build his confidence when left - he slept through fine last night & we think with a good routine he will be fine."

You will find full details of this dog in their album on Facebook in the photo's section.

All our dogs are fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, flea & worm treated before homing.

Thank you to some very kind and caring people we have been able to save Smartie! He was moved to emergency foster on Tuesday 21st January 2020. He needs a new home as soon as possible.

No. 4671: BIG G (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Big G needs a new home.
German Shepherd, male, nearly 5 years old. He is black and tan and he is large in size. He is in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Big G is a beautiful, great dog!...he needs a home before foster mum falls in love and keeps him!

This boy is not your average pet Shepherd and we are not in a rush to rehome him; we are prepared to wait to find the perfect match for him. He has had a lot of time spent on him. We are looking for working line GSD experience - a retired handler/an active Shepherd savvy person - Big G says he would like a big garden too thanks. 

He isn’t a cat fan and we doubt they will like him - he likes to chase rabbits. Will pass other dogs in the street with no issues - he is powerful on the lead. He can be dominant with other males but appears fine with females. 

Big G would love beach walks and long hikes with someone responsible who has a good understanding of a trained working breed. We are not looking for a working home but an active pet home. Big G is kennel and crate trained - is quiet when left & very clean. He loves being brushed and loves to chill on a sofa or by the fire.  We really are looking for a five star home for this boy so please put as much information as possible on your application - anything less than five star with knowledge will not tempt his foster mum to part with him.

You will find full details of this dog in their album on Facebook in the photo's section.

If you are interested in offering Big G a forever home please apply here: http://www.rochdale-dog-rescue.com/RehomingEnquiry.html

All our dogs are fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, flea & worm treated before homing.

Thank you to some very kind and caring people we have been able to help Big G! He was moved to emergency foster on Thursday 13th February 2020. He needs a new home as soon as possible.

No. 4674: ROXIE (Spayed, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Roxie needs a new home.
Cross Breed, female, born 23/10/2016. She is brindle and she is medium to large in size. Roxie is a friendly girl who knows basic commands, is housetrained and she seems Ok with other dogs. 

"Had lovely walk with Roxy, she's very friendly, she walked well on the lead, she pulled a bit but mainly because she is a large dog. She followed basic commands when crossing roads. We met quite a few dogs while we were out, one barked at her and two Westies had a growl at her but she didn't react at all. She was a little wary when a lorry went past but carried on walking, she just seemed to enjoy having a sniff at everything!"

"We did a country walk so came across tractors, sheep, cows, horses, other dogs and she was fine with everything. We took her across a narrow wooden bridge over a stream and she walked over without an issue. She pulls a bit on the lead at first but soon settles down...She is a really lovely dog and a pleasure to take for a walk."

Tobie needs a new home.
Spaniel Cross, male, approximately 4 years old. He is red and white and he is a small medium size. Tobie is a friendly boy who seems Ok with other dogs. 

"I had the pleasure of taking the lovely Tobie for a walk today. He was great on the lead, very friendly towards dogs and people we met. He didn't seem phased by traffic and didn't bark or appear unsettled by anything. He will make a great addition to someone's home with a bit of training."

"We had a lovely walk with Tobie this morning, he was a very friendly boy to all the dogs we met, he did show interest in a cat so unsure if he would be cat friendly. He is a quiet boy who seems to love being out and about."

No. 4676: TOBY (First Vaccinated)
Toby needs a new home.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier, male, approximately 10 years old. He is dark brindle with white on his chest and he is small to medium in size. Toby is a friendly boy who seems Ok with other dogs. 

"This morning we took lovely Toby for a walk with his little friend Bella.  He walked really well with another dog and it was comical to see them both trying to be the dog at the front.  They happily trotted along side by side and there may have been a little Staffie romance in the air ❤️..

Although Toby is ten years old I hope that people are not put off by his age as he walked easily for over an hour and had lots left in him.   He also managed a spritely jump onto a bench to get closer for cuddles, so he might be a senior gent in years but definitely not in personality or energy.
He is a loveable lad, and enjoys fuss and cuddles and is good company.  As last time, he was completely fine with all other dogs we met and gave them little attention.  

I cannot recommend Toby highly enough to anyone looking for a lovely Staffie."

The following dogs have rescue places if not claimed or have a new home ...

The following dogs will be moving into the care of another rescue if not reclaimed or are now reserved and will soon be going to their new home.


No. 4669: JURA (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
RESERVED: Jura has a new home.
Australian Cattle Dog/Beagle Cross, male, born 21/09/2013. He is light brown and white, he has a smooth coat and he is medium in size. He is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Jura is a friendly boy who seems Ok with other dogs. 

"...he gives lots of happy eye contact and herded me playfully a little - he obviously has the potential to beagle off after a scent but after having him on a long line and watching his half interest as my dogs took off after a rabbit scent I didn’t feel that he wanted to leave me or go off too far so I let him off in a very large enclosed area. He was very happy running around with my dogs but naturally checks in often. He did tell one of my shepherds off in a bossy herdy way like a collie would - no aggression just establishing that the other dog needs to keep his space when I’m giving out treats... I feel he would be happy living with other steady female dogs as he strikes me as being happy in a pack - he can be quite intense with owner which I quite like but may not be for everyone - he’s just very intelligent and likes to run the show if he can...He loves being in the van and travels really well. He is strong on the lead and likes to tow ahead. Jura is part beagle too and I think that’s where he gets his chattiness from as he likes to vocalise excitement... 

... He hasn’t been destructive and is very clean. Unlikely to be good with cats. Needs an owner who enjoys walking and is strong enough to manage him... he is quirky and interesting and very clever - he knows quite a few commands already. He definitely needs someone who will reward train him but also stand firm and be his leader and not over fuss him as he needs to learn he can’t have attention all the time or on command - he’s not having free reign here as I have cats and he’s settled lovely."

Currently in emergency foster he will be going to his new home soon. 




No. 4673: BELLA (Spayed, First Vaccinated & Microchipped)
RESERVED: Bella has a new home.
Staffie Cross, female, born 14.02.2012. She is black with white on her chest and she is small to medium in size. Bella is a lovely girl who is good with other dogs.

"We met little Bella this morning and she had just arrived.  She happily came along on the walk with no fuss, and was an absolute treat on the lead - no pulling, happy on a short or long lead and did that cute little Staffie thing of putting her ears right back to the point that they touched when you were talking to her as she trotted along in front.

She was naturally a little anxious at first but soon settled into the walk and was curious about everything taking it all in her stride - people, cars, horses, in fact the only time she reacted was when she saw a sheep and she just stopped dead and looked totally surprised.  After she’d stared at it for a few minutes she just carried on walking with no other reaction at all.
She is proper little girl, sweet, gentle and by the end of the walk she was starting to respond to strokes and cuddles and we could certainly see her potential to be a wonderful member of a loving family.  In summary she’s absolutely adorable ❤️"

Currently in emergency boarding she will be going to her new home soon.
