Dog of the Month!



2 Years Old


Yorkshire Terrier x Chihuahua

Ruby originally came into Oakwood as her elderly owner was having mobility problems and could not manage to exercise Ruby anymore. 

She is quite a shy dog, and can be nervous meeting new people. Ruby is not good with other dogs, and although she is under-going socialisation training it is unlikely she will ever be able to live with another dog. She is not good with cats and due to her timid nature we would not home her with children.   

Ruby is crate trained and is fine to be left in there for short periods. She can be a little timid when first going out for a walk but is great once she gets going. She loves nothing more then sitting on the sofa and having cuddles with a pigs ear to chew on.

What Ruby needs is a home where she will not be babied or spoilt, with people who are willing to put the time into attending training with her as she has the potential to be a super dog.

If you think that you have the time and patience to bring out Rubys' potential then please get in touch. 

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. 

      Can You Help? To continue running the rescue we depend entirely on donations and fundraisers. Any donations are very much appreciated (even if it's just 50p!). You can use the 'donate' button to donate using PayPal. Thank you for your support.
