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. 4805: FLORENCE (Fully 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."

"Well it's been a while since we have updated on Flo who has now attained a healthy weight of 22.5 kilos. The reason for the lack of updates being that RDR had bloods done to ensure that whilst a known potential tendency with English Bull Terriers there was no ongoing nutritional imbalance or medical reason for Flo having the desire to eat non-edible items which led to her needing major surgery. The bloods came back clear for any medical reason however they did show signs that she was fighting an infection. She underwent a scan and it was suspected that the Pyometra she had alongside the linear blockage prior to coming into RDR’S care may not have completely cleared when initially treated as she had not been spayed alongside the blockage surgery. She has been treated again with antibiotics and monitored as we were advised it was too soon after major surgery to open her back up unless we had no other option, and last week she was given the all clear and her wounds being declared sufficiently healed to consider getting her spayed in early February which also should be the ideal 3 months after her last heat based on the date of the initial Pyometra. Flo however had other ideas; her vaccinations had been delayed due to treatment and she was taken to the vet yesterday to start those, however whilst in the waiting room she unexpectedly spotted blood and went into heat (perhaps she fancied the rather randy male Yorkie who was also waiting to be seen). She is now being monitored closely in case of another Pyometra occurring during or after this heat. 
In other news though Santa came!!! And he brought loads of toys. Flo also has also developed a keen interest in tropical fish!!!
Flo is a livewire with boundless energy, she loves her toys and these have helped to stimulate her away from stealing (and eating) inappropriate stuff. Currently in light of her previous blockage she cannot be left alone without being crated, hopefully this will improve over time but she needs someone who is around most of the day and who has a keen eye to ensure that she does not eat anything she shouldn’t. 
She remains a happy dog and is very loving towards people and whilst enthusiastic her manners are improving. From her reaction to toys she is quite prey/sound driven and that also appears to apply towards other dogs/animals, she needs therefore to be an only dog and would prefer to be the centre of someone’s world. Flo needs a home experienced with English Bull Terriers and their quirks and a home which can provide ultimately plenty of physical exercise and mental stimulation as currently and for the foreseeable future she needs to be exercised on lead only. Due to the delay in being able to vaccinate Flo we have not been able to assess her properly in all environments and this has now been delayed further by her coming into heat but updates will follow when we are able. 
Flo is in a foster home and whilst she cannot be homed immediately we do not want to miss the opportunity for her if her perfect home is currently out there and prepared to wait so we are inviting enquiries from potential adopters who can meet her current requirements (keeping fish is not mandatory, Santa however is!). This little girl has been through so much in her short life she really deserves a bright future in a loving home."

No. 4810: BILLY & BOBBY (Both Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Billy and Bobby need a new home together.

Pomeranian/JRT Cross, they are brothers, date of birth 03/05/2014. Billy is tan with some black, he has a thick coat and he is small in size. Bobby is tan with a thick coat and a curly tail and he is a little taller than Billy. They have come into the care of RDR due to the sad death of their owner. Both Billy and Bobby are currently nervous little dogs, Billy more so than Bobby; they are looking for a quiet, patient home together.

"We met Billy and Bobby this afternoon and took them for a nice walk. We knew in advance that they were a little worried at the moment so we took introductions slowly and without fuss.

We set off on the walk and both dogs walked really nicely on the lead. They liked to be side by side and seem to be a very bonded pair, with Billy (the darker coloured one) looking to Bobby for reassurance.
They walked past other dogs and people without incident, but didn’t engage with them. Billy is the more nervous and at the moment is a little upset by noisy vehicles and buses. When we stopped to take photos and have a biscuit Bobby really enjoyed his treat and took it nicely, letting us stroke him a little and seeming quite settled. Little Billy however wasn’t ready to trust us and wouldn’t take a treat or let us stroke him so we just let him be.

They are two very cute and loveable little dogs who I’m sure will settle into someone’s life if they are allowed to do this at their own pace and with patience."

No. 4814: BRUCE (Fully Vaccinated)

Bruce needs a new home.

Rottweiler, male, approximately 10 years old. He is black and tan and he is large in size. He has been signed over to the care of RDR with Wolf due to the sad death of their owner. Bruce is the sire of Wolf. Bruce has been nervous of his current situation but is now coming round and proving to be a friendly boy.

"Myself and Aunty Cheryl took big lad Bruce out for a little walk this morning. He was already on a lead when I first saw him and as I stepped out of the office, he was eager to come over to see us. He was friendly towards us and let me stroke his head. He is a big lad and at first he was strong on his lead and excitable. We both had a lead each and Bruce walked in the middle of us, this made it easy to handle him. However, by the time we got down to the road, he had tired lots and he was no bother. As we walked up the road, he enjoyed a good sniff and about 50 wees! We stood to the side when two dogs passed us and he wasn't bothered as they passed as we distracted him with treats, but afterwards he did want to go to them. With a little encouragement he walked nicely again with us. We couldn't get him to sit for a treat, but he did take them gently."

"Aunty Wendy and I took Wolf for a walk today and oh my what a handsome boy he is. For a big lad he's very gentle and walks nicely on his lead. He seemed a little apprehensive at times and liked to know where we both was, frequently turning to check we was still there. He posed beautifully for Aunty Wendy to take a few pics and happily took treats and let me stroke him. Wolf was lovely to meet and walk today. Anyone who likes big gentle dogs would absolutely fall in love with him like me and Aunty Wendy did!"

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. 4812: MAGGIE (Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

RESERVED: Maggie has a new home.

Staffie Cross, female, approximately 8 months old. She is tri-coloured  and she is small to medium in size. She was found as a stray and unclaimed; she is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Maggie is a very friendly, bouncy girl who is housetrained and she knows basic commands.

"I collected Maggie from kennels and was a tad cautious as was told she was quite boisterous. 

She was so happy to see me that she jumped up and down in front of me for cuddles, she got straight into my van despite there being other dogs in the upper crates. She settled down and travelled quietly. I let her into my secure dog field - she had a good run around and checked in when I called her. I introduced her to a couple of other dogs - she took it all in her stride. In the home she can be playful but has settled lots already. If she can get away with leaping at you for attention then she will and she will try to hold the cuff of your sleeve in a puppyish manner. I am firm but fair and redirect this behaviour into something a little more polite, I ask her to stay on all fours and sit for attention or food. She already knew how to sit for treats and is a really pleasant girl. She is bright and eager to learn. I would describe her as more giddy than boisterous & she will relax after her walks. She is getting her fill of socialisation as I have various breeds - she is respectful of my large female (sometimes bossy) young Shepherd bitch and does not try to challenge her or any of the other dogs. She slept through the night from day 1 and has so far been clean. She would suit a Staffie loving home - she looks to have a bit of some sort of bulldog in her but is very Staffordshire in size and behaviour. 

She will pull a bit on the lead but that's to be expected for her age/history and breed, she will soon learn manners with the right owners I'm sure. I would say that she can definitely live with other dog friendly tolerant dogs. She has been fine with all of mine and is comfortable sharing toys, attention, space and treats. 

She is not smitten with my cats so a cat free home please. 

She would be fine with older dog savvy kids (over 12) but bear in mind that she is an excitable adolescent that may jump up and needs ongoing training. She really is a lovely pleasant girl."

Currently in emergency foster Maggie will be going to her new home soon.
