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.




1 DOG NOW IN EMERGENCY BOARDING, 3 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 MORE APPLICATIONS BEING TAKEN FOR THIS DOG. THANKYOU.

No. 4699: BELLA (First Vaccinated)
Bella needs a new home.
Jack Russell Terrier, female, approximately 6 years old. She is tri-coloured and she is small in size. She has been signed over to the care of RDR; she is currently in emergency foster. Bella is a very friendly girl who is housetrained, knows basic commands and she seems fine with other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog in her new home. She cannot be homed with cats or small furries.

"This afternoon we met Bella for the first time.  At first she was a little timid but very friendly and happily came along with us on her walk.

She met lots of dogs this afternoon and was very friendly towards them, and also with people that we met.
Understandably she was a little nervous at times - walking on the lane when the cars came too close, and when the wind was blowing really hard through the trees and making a noise.  But she was easily reassured by fuss and cuddles.  
Cuddles are a thing for Bella I think!  She was very happy to sit on my knee and be told how gorgeous she was and was very comfortable to be picked up and cuddled when she was anxious.  
She has a lovely way of walking - she almost prances along - not pulling on her lead at all - a proper little princess.

I don’t think it will be long before she finds her forever home as she is absolutely adorable!"

No. 4700: ZION (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Zion needs a new home.
Cross Breed, male, born 1.12.2014. He is light tan and white, he has a smooth coat and he is a large medium size. He has been signed over to the care of RDR; he is currently in emergency foster. Zion is a friendly boy who knows basic commands and he seems fine with other dogs.

"We met Zion today. He is a big boy, he's a gorgeous colour and a handsome chap. He walks extremely well on the lead, he is clearly a strong lad but doesn't pull at all. He was happy off out to walk and enjoyed being called back for cuddles, his tail would wag straight away. He wasn't interested in any dogs we walked passed. A little terrier ran down a drive barking at him and he looked then looked away, he's very calm. He can sit and give his paw. A shetland pony walked passed with a small child and I don't think Zion looked at all, nothing seems to bother him. He's definitely a cool and calm boy. Think we are in love with him already, sure everyone else will do the same!"

No. 4701: LUNA 
Luna needs a new home.
Husky/Malamute Cross, female, approximately 6 years old. She is grey and white, she has a thick coat and she is large in size. She has been signed over to the care of RDR; she is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children.  Luna knows basic commands and she is good with other dogs.

"I met Luna at kennels and offered my hand for her to sniff. She immediately air snapped at me. Charming I thought, but I wasn't offended and opened my van - she leapt straight in despite my 3 Shepherds watching her from their crates she wasn’t phased. I took her to my field on a long lead. She chats away to me like shes telling a story. She was not happy about being touched initially but enjoyed doing training games. She knows 'sit' / 'down' / 'paw' / 'catch' so someone somewhere has put some work in - she loves being out and about. She will recall on a long line. We were told she wouldn't get on with cats but she's so far ignored mine when passing them on a lead. She's a tad thin and we were told she was picky with food but this isn't my experience so far - she's wolfing two big meals a day. It's early days so I will do another pupdate in a few more days but I really like this quirky lady. She needs someone who likes a chat. Who wont be offended if she doesn’t want to be petted (she will come over on her terms and let you rub her chest etc - she's getting better with me but I think she prefers to chat than being touched). She will grumble at strangers in a 'stay away & dont touch me' sort of way - so responsible handling and non busy walks would be needed - she doesn't lunge at people, she just doesn't want people touching her. She's been clean in the home and enjoys the company of other dogs. She enjoys sitting near you. I think she's just typical Husky atitude. She was quiet and clean over night and not destructive - gives me no real behavioural concerns - she's not aggressive but may appear that way if you don't know the breed. I doubt she will change her ways much but I do think the right owner will build her trust & enjoy an entertaining quirky companion. She settles after a walk and seems to like the TV. Obviously with her quirks she needs a quieter home - no visiting kids."

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. 4694: MAC (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
RESERVED: Mac has a new home.
German Shepherd Cross, male, born November 2019. He is black and tan, he has a smooth, thick coat and he is large 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. Mac is a friendly boy who can be nervous and he is fine with other dogs and cats.

"I got him out walking with my Shepherds - he hid under a picnic table for an hour before tentatively popping out for a sniff around before retreating to watch the others. Despite losing his family and the change of environment he slept a lot after our walks and slept through first night. He has been clean too. He has not been destructive but we do have a regular exercise routine and I do not leave him in the lounge - he is still puppyish and I am workinng on recall/sit/wait etc - he will go to his bed when asked. His confidence is growing daily. He is a bit spooky and will back off from strangers - he occasionally flashes teeth out of fear but hasn’t backed it up even when I continue through this to hold him etc. It took him a few days to get used to me handling him - he's not been used to a collar so he can cower if you hold him by it. All minor things we will work on - he's at the first fear stage and not been socialised in different environments so not streetwise yet but he will be after a few weeks with us. He is rapidly learning to inhibit his mouthing as my Shepherds are firm but fair - they tell him as soon as he gets too giddy & I can see his behaviour changing. I dont think he's a novice pup but not really difficult either as long as you're firm and he's getting regular exercise  - he doesn't appear to need as much as my Shepherds - he settles well after walks - someone with some experience especially of Shepherds or Collies would love him - he's quite sharp but not as intense or energetic as a Collie. He is a tad boisterous through lack of basic training and manners but he will learn quick enough. From what I have seen he could live with another dog - preferably a bitch or a calm male. He needs someone who will continue to work with him, bring him on and get him out and about. He's strong on the lead at the moment but working on that too."

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