Dog of the Month!



6 Years Old


Siberian Husky

Simba is a lovely calm dog, he is not a typical Husky! He came to us from a lady who had taken him on from somebody else and she was going to train him for racing. But being the chilled out chap that he is, he showed no interest in running with the pack. Feeling he was in need of a nice pet home instead the lady asked Oakwood to find him a nice family to spend the rest of his days with.

Simba is good with other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog living in the home as he loves all of the attention being on him. He would be fine with visiting dogs and joining another dog on a walk. He is also really good with children but due to his size (he is big for a Husky) we would not home him with really young children.

Simba does have some issues with his hips and is on daily painkillers but it doesn't bother him too much and we would give any future adopters all of the information about the cost of his medication. With him being a Northern breed he does need someone willing to put in a lot of work on his coat.

This lovely dog really deserves a lovely family and a comfortable home to spend the rest of his days in.


Welcome to Oakwood Dog Rescue - Winner of Charity of the year 2014 in the Goole & Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards

Oakwood Dog Rescue was set up by Gill Williams; founder of Oakwood Canine Services in 2009, initially to support clients who could no longer take care of their dogs for whatever reason. The not for profit organisation has since grown, and now rescues dogs from across the UK. Based in Hull on Sutton Fields, near Kingswood. Gill is now assisted by a great team who day in day out, work tirelessly to take in, assess and re-home as many dogs as possible.
