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. 4777: FRED (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Fred needs a new home.

Cross Breed, male, two years old. He is dark brindle with white on his chest, he has a smooth coat and he is medium in size. He has been signed over to the care of RDR. Fred is a friendly, shiny boy who is housetrained, knows basic commands and he is good with other dogs and cats.

"Walked Fred this morning. He's a lovely friendly young man. He's a tad strong on his lead and has a tendency to take off at speed if something catches his eye but easily manageable. Fred is happy to walk by the side of the road and the couple of other dogs we saw, although we didn't let him approach them, he had a very waggy tail. Fred took the treats on offer very gently. He knows how to sit when asked and will lie down if bribed with gravy bones. All in all Fred seems to be a very steady, well mannered young dog and can imagine him being lots of fun once he has settled into his new home."

No. 4778: DOOD & RAINE (Microchipped)

Dood and Raine need a new home.

Pocket Bullies: Dood is male, 5-6 years old, tan in colour with a smooth coat and he is small to medium in size. Raine is female, 4-5 years old, chocolate in colour with a smooth coat and she is small to medium in size. Dood and Raine are a lovely, friendly pair who will be rehomed together, as the only dogs in the home.

"I met Dood this morning and had a nice walk with him, Raine and Aunty Wendy. Dood's a lovely chap, he walks nicely and didn't mind the traffic passing by. We only saw one other dog, a Spaniel that was near where we stopped for a rest. Was so proud of Dood and Raine, neither of them reacted when the Spaniel started barking. Even its owner commented how well behaved they were. Dood's a friendly boy, he enjoyed having a back rub and was happy to swop between Aunty Wendy and me to see who gave the best. He's a gorgeous boy who maybe hasn't had the best start in life. He so deserves a new life filled with love."

"I met and walked Raine this morning. She is a beautiful girl and greeted me nicely with her buddy Dood. She is a stocky girl, who looks like she means business, when in reality she is a softy. We were told she could be a little wary with people she didn't know, so we took it steady with her and at her own pace. She happily set off walking with myself, Aunty Cheryl and Dood. We came across our first dog very quickly and Raine saw it, but wasn't bothered at all. She was ok with the busy road, just took it steady and had a good sniff about. She wasn't strong on the lead, she was easy to manage. I soon found her looking up at me wanting to be stroked. I gently stroked her along her back, she was relaxed, so I then tickled her head. She must have felt comfortable with us as she didn't seem stressed, like I thought she might. We stopped off for a little drink of water and a rest. There was a dog barking for his owner who had popped in a shop, Raine was interested, had a look over to see what the fuss was about, but she then wasn't bothered. She was too busy enjoying some fuss. She was a pleasure to walk, I enjoyed her company!"

No. 4779: GUCCI (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Gucci needs a new home.

English Bulldog, male, born 20.02.2021. He is tan and white and he is medium in size. He has been signed over to the care of RDR; he is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Gucci is a very friendly, boisterous boy who is housetrained, knows basic commands and he is good with other dogs.

"If you are looking for a nice chilled lazy bull dog then Gucci is definitely not your guy...

Think more hyper bulldozer and thats a better description. At 15 months old he has been raised with two young children and an owner who although she adored him she simply was not strong enough for his bolshy bully behaviour. 

This has been a hard decision for his family, they actually signed him over to RDR several months ago but could not part with him and asked for him back after a few hours. They began bringing him to me for daycare which helped in the way of smoothing the edge off him for a day or two but as he got no solid boundaries at home then he just became fitter (I am a daycare who will work to mentally stimulate as well as exercise the dogs here however one day a week with me then 6 days at home ruling the roost will not touch the sides with this boy). 

The children in the family are getting more active and Gucci's mum has been struggling to manage what is really 3 youngsters - especially when Gucci sees them as playmates and entertains himself by chasing them around.

So here we are again, he is back with me and about to undergo the biggest bootcamp of his life.

The bonus is that I know him well enough to write his assessment and give a fair bit of an idea of him. 

Gucci on the surface is boisterous, full on and rude. He is easily distracted by his surroundings - he's a nosy beggar who doesn't want to miss out. He has not in my opinion and experience been captured by owner or trained how to behave - from what I have seen he's been very much loved but treated like & spoken to like one of the kids, he hasn't had any real training though he does know how to 'sit' and loves a ball. He will not recall if he gets free as it becomes a game - but to be fair I have only let him off in a secure field where he will come back if I pretend to leave through a gate or fully engage him with a toy but if there's other dogs or kids to play with then I'm boring & he's off after them. He is a bright dog and I think his excess energy is a combination of a bit of anxiety, lack of consistent suitable exercise, training & dog enrichment - he has become a kid chasing machine & a fit one at that and given that he has a decent snout unlike many bullies he can breathe & has tons of stamina. 

I think that someone with English Bull or Bulldog experience who enjoys walking and is willing to start again with him would love him. He is a pup (will chew shoes etc). Any owner needs to be patient enough to bear with him while he matures and guide him through his bully toddler stage. I have watched him play with small kids - he really does adore them but I think they are too stimulating for him. He is fine with other dogs too but he's a massive pest wanting to play - this does not wash with my Shepherds as they are not into playing with other dogs at all and will send him packing (without escalating to aggression) but I don't think many dogs would want the hassle (not ruling out living with another dog but you really need to consider whether your dog would appreciate the hassle & could cope). 

Ideally I would think he would suit an active ish couple. Bear in mind as fit as he is he is still a bully & hot weather can affect them - early & late walks or training games in the shade would be needed. He's not keen on being left all day but can be crated for short periods (couple of hours) or enclosed in an area where he can't chew stuff - he slept in an area under the stairs while with his previous owner). It takes him a few days to adapt to change so is likely to throw up allsorts in the first day or two - is known to hump new people (rude!) but again I think it's what he can get away with - he's never ever done that with anyone here so I feel its all just over arousal. 

I see a big daft bulldog - no aggression, he's not had a chance to bond and respond to one person as the environment he lived in was busy. After a few days here I am hoping we can start to get some ground rules and a good routine going but given we are a busy home I know that we are also not the right environment to calm him. 

He loves water and will paddle he also travels well."
