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. 4793: REX (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Rex needs a new home.

Jack Russell Cross, male, born 29/05/2021.  He is black with white markings with a smooth coat and he is small in size. He is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Rex has 3 legs but this does not seem to bother him at all.  He seems fine with other dogs and enjoys a stroke and chin tickle.

"Rex was brought to me by Aunty Wendy who had been walking him for the last few weeks. She had built up a relationship with him and explained that she had found that he had a few quirks but had always been friendly towards her. 

Well I didn't know what to make of him for the first few days. I'm still not sure how to explain his atitude or character; I will try my best to describe him to try to help find him a great home. 

So Rex was a stray - we have zero history. He has a leg missing - this looks to be an amputation rather than a deformity. Rex on the surface is lively and greets people willingly with a waggy tail. He is fine meeting other dogs. However Rex grumbles, growls and snarls a lot. Now I won't lie, this was quite unnerving at first - he is difficult to read - he enjoys being picked up and carried under your arm, he snuggles in for cuddles and strokes, he enjoys being fussed but he grumbles a lot during interaction. He will seek to be lifted by tapping your legs. If you put him down he whips around to look at his missing leg. 

I suspect his behaviour is trauma related. He is definitely affected by whatever happened to him to loose that leg. 

Now Ive held off writing this as I wanted to be more sure of what we were dealing with however he's still quite confusing - I do love him though! Now I'm over the grumbling he doesn't phase me at all and we have a right old chat - I'm sure he thinks he's talking! I can stroke him while he grumbles, he has never escalated. 

He has shown no aggression to me or my family, even when he's acted and sounded like he is going to eat me. This is not a guarantee that he will never show aggression, that is impossible with any dog. However I have pushed him a little by handling him/stroking him while he's grumbling to test the water and he clearly has his reasons for what he does but he doesn't appear to want to back it up or escalate. It's very bizarre. 

I have started to discourage the grumbling and left him be if he starts - I have rewarded nice behaviour & used distraction (food/toys) & ignored the growls. He is doing it a lot less now that he's settling but I've no doubt he will flare up again once moved. The missing leg in no way slows him down. He is lovely in the home, clean, not destructive, can be left while you pop out for a couple of hours. He has got on with my dogs on the whole but he can be a bit of a pest in the morning wanting to play etc so I'd say he could live with another dog or dogs but it would have to be a calm/patient one. 

Absolutely no children or visiting children, he needs someone who is Terrier savvy, patient and with maybe a warped sense of humour in that they don't mind being grumbled at and will happily chat! He does need a routine where he gets two walks a day. He will walk as far as a normal dog - he can tow a little too. He is absolutely lovely now I have a two walk/two feeds a day routine going with him. 

He will check boundary fences and gates for an escape route & try to squish under gates if there's a gap, however he doesn't seem to be able to climb. He travels in a crate with no problems. He can retrieve a ball though the trick is to have two identical balls to swap with otherwise he will grumble at the ball he retrieved for you! 

He will suit an adult home, no cats, secure garden."

Update:

"Rex has settled really well - he is an absolute cracker. He is clean/none destructive/settles well. 

He is typical of a Patterdale/Terrier type breed in that his 'character' is way bigger than his size. 

I suspect after watching him that he suffers from post traumatic stress relating to his lost leg. If handled or any raised voices he whips around to look at his stump. I do not feel that he has any pain - he's been vet checked/he is a bit tetchy about being touched around the leg area but loves being lifted and cuddled & will let me examine him all over. 

He's a quirky boy and will grumble and snarl to communicate. This is unnerving until you know him. Common sense and dog experience tells us that we should give a dog space if growling as normally a pre cursor for a nip or bite & we do not know what he's saying, however he has not nipped me at all despite doing a good impression of intent. I don't even think about scooping him up and he is fine. 

His leg in no way slows him down - he loves a chase around with the bigger dogs - he gets on fine with most though may clash with other male Terrier types - some dogs get offended if he catches up with them and will tell him off which he takes as a cue to watch his manners. 

He is polite around food and can be left for a few hours, he travels well. He really is a sweet loyal boy. 

I'd say a quiet home with no cats/either with or without a steady dog(s). Adult home with no kids - preferably Terrier experience, someone confident with dogs and not easily offended by his quirks and who can see the best in this boy - I ignore undesirable 'chats' and praise when quiet which has worked here. He has had something horrid happen that we will never know what but he's great with me and my family as he trusts us. Unfortunately my cats want him gone so he can't stay."

No. 4794: ZELDA (Spayed, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Zelda needs a new home.

Cat, female, approximately 18 months old.  She is white with black patches and tail and she has a smooth coat. She came into the care of RDR with two kittens; she will be rehomed when the kittens have been rehomed and she has been spayed. She is currently in emergency foster:

"Zelda, Mum to kittens, is quiet, friendly and wants to be loved. She can be chatty and does squeak at you. She shows interest in toys and has had a little play with a wand toy but I'm sure as her kittens grow up her personality will shine through more. She has shown so far that she has a placid and a fantastic personality. She isn't one for cuddles or to sit on a knee but will step on you when reaching for a treat. She loves treats, doesn't like wet food and is litter tray trained."

No. 4801: LOKI (Neutered, First Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Loki needs a new home.

Loki is a Jack Russell Terrier, male, born 05/04/2018; he is tan and white, he has a smooth coat and he is small in size. He has been signed over with Stitch to the care of RDR due to a change in their owner's circumstances. He is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Loki and Stitch are both lovely boys who we would prefer to rehome together but we will are happy to consider rehoming them separately.

"I met Loki and Stitch this morning. What a sweet pair. I walked straight into their kennels to get them and both were super excited, they both came to me and let me place the leads over their heads with no issues. They were both eager to get going, so we headed off. There was a little competition going on to begin, which was, the battle of being leader of the pack and mostly won by Stitch. Both dogs clearly love each other, they often checked on each other and Stitch even gave Loki a few kisses. As we approached a lady with a large poodle, Loki had a little low growl at it. He did stop when I told him to and as soon as we passed them, the lady asked about the dogs and both dogs stood patiently. They are sweet natured boys, happy to be stroked, they didn't want my treats, but there was so much going on they just wanted to be on the go."

"Lovely to meet Loki and Stitch this morning. They were keen to get moving and although small in size, can pull like a train. These are no nonsense dogs and walked at a fast pace and were pretty focused, with no sniffing or general meandering. I’m sure once they got used to a good exercise routine they’d be less intense! They are affectionate and soft and enjoyed a lovely cuddle when we got back to the kennel. Interested in the dogs we passed and Loki can be a bit mouthy. Stitch also pulls when he sees bicycles passing by, but apart from that, good as gold "

No. 4802: STITCH (First Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Stitch needs a new home.

Mixed Breed, male, born 22/04/2021; he has a white and black speckled semi coat and he is small in size. He has been signed over to the care of RDR with Loki due to a change in their owner's circumstances. He is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Stitch is a lovely, friendly boy who is good with other dogs and cats.

"Lovely random Cross Breed - height of a small Spaniel, length of a big Corgi and head of a Collie! Needs a bit of work on his house training so patience needed - I suspect it's partly marking behaviour as he's still entire & knows to go out for poops. He is a bright boy so sure he will get it with guidance. 

He can be left, no separation issues, he has not been destructive, he loves other dogs and people. Loves cuddles and food. He is fine around my cats. He is a blank canvas and needs an owner wanting to train a youngster - he pulls a bit on the lead initially but settles - he will be a sweet companion"

No. 4805: FLORENCE (First Vaccinated)

Florence needs a new home.

Bull Terrier, female, approximately 12 months old. She is tricoloured and she is medium in size. She is currently in emergency foster. Updates will follow for this lovely girl; her condition is improving daily.

"Florence or Flo is a Bull Terrier and has been with us for almost a week now after spending the previous week critically ill at the vets, where she was handed in suffering both pyometra and a linear blockage requiring major surgery. She was quite a nervous little girl when she arrived and was obviously in some considerable pain and is very lucky not to have died. Flo was extremely underweight some of which was clearly caused by the blockage she had suffered preventing her from taking in nutrition, but other signs lead us to believe she has not been properly cared for prior to this. Flo has been on a high calorie diet since arriving with us with small feeds every three hours to help prevent any leakage from her numerous incisions poisoning her and to allow her stomach to stretch slowly and she has come on in leaps and bounds literally!! She is extremely loving and friendly towards people and very trusting despite going through so much and she loves attention. She is around 12 months old and over the last few days has got her spark back and is now very playful and a bit of a clown. She also loves to cosy up on the sofa.

Flo is a very typical Bull Terrier and ideally needs a Bully experienced home who would embrace all the quirks of this lovely breed. At the moment she is indicating that she would like to be the only dog and is a little bit too interested in cats. This little girl has the potential to make someone a very loyal and loving companion."

No. 4806: ARCHIE (Neutered, First Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Archie needs a new home.

Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua cross, DOB 24/05/2017. He is tri-coloured with a smooth coat and very small in size.

"Archie is a timid gentle little boy who bonds quickly with his human, he is cautious with new people but can be won over with a gentle voice and food.

Archie has lived with other dogs but would prefer to be an only dog where he doesn’t have to compete for food or attention. He likes short walks where he can have a sniff but only if the weather is right, any rain, wind or too much cloud cover and he would rather give it a miss thanks.

He is generally clean though can have an odd accident (normally when the weather is bad and he really cant hold it).

Archie is lovely with people although he did have a snipe at the vet when he gave him his jab (standard Chihuahua behaviour I'd say) but he has been the gentlest little lamb with us. Happy to be gently stroked by visitors & he loves to be carried - Archie can be left while you pop to the shops and loves a ride in the car.

Archie is not keen on dogs approaching him but will happily sit in the crook of your arm till they pass.

Archie would love a quiet home where he can be the centre of attention, he would like a gentle owner who will help build his confidence and he loves being a sofa buddy and watching TV."

Theo needs a new home.

Pug cross, male, approximately 4-5 years old. He is tan and cream with a black muzzle and ears and has a smooth coat.

Theo came into our care with Alby and Bella.

"I met Theo, Alby and Bella today. Theo was first out. He seems such a friendly boy and was desperate for cuddles and affection. We had a little walk and he was very well behaved and walked nicely on his lead.

Theo seemed to get a little jealous if he thought he was being left out. He will jump up for attention and is not keen to sit still even for a treat.  All of them are little livewires and enjoyed having a run together today"

Alby and Bella came into our care with Theo.  Alby and Bella will be looking for a new home together.

"I met Theo, Alby and Bella today. Alby has the most gorgeous foxy face.  He enjoyed playing with a ball and was happy to bring it back to you.  He walked nicely on his lead and enjoyed having a nosey around.   Beautiful Bella was out next, she seemed the most gentle of the 3 but did give a little impatient bark when she wanted to be on her way.

They all wanted cuddles and will jump up for attention and didn't want to sit still for a treat - they are little livewires and really enjoyed having a run together.

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. 4804: BUDDY (First Vaccinated)

Buddy has a new home.

French Bulldog, male, approximately 2 years old. He is dark brindle and he is small in size. He was found as a stray. Buddy is a lovely, friendly boy who knows basic commands, he is housetrained and he seems Ok with other dogs.

"I met Buddy today and oh my what a gorgeous boy he is. He's so friendly and gave me a lovely hello before we set off on our walk.  Buddy walks at a nice pace. He does pull and likes to lead a little but stops for lots of sniffs and wees too. Almost everyone we met, Buddy wanted to say hello to and greeted them with a very waggy tail.  He was a little unsure around a bouncy Lab and gave out a little warning growl but once it had settled, so did he.  Buddy knows how to sit when asked and soon learnt when a gravy bone came out of the bag that was the time to sit down. We had lots of kisses and cuddles, he is certainly one adorable chap and loves to be the centre of attention."

Buddy will be going to his new home soon.
