Dog of the Month!



4 Years Old


Labrador x Rottweiler

Leo is a big bouncy boy who will need an active home. He loves running and playing and has endless amounts of energy. Leo will need some obedience training and some further socialisation as he is quite full-on, he is very intelligent so should pick up on training well. As he is so big and bouncy we would only home Leo with adults or possibly sensible teenagers. Leo gets on ok with other dogs but he would prefer to be the only dog in the home, cats are a no go.

Leo is a great character and with a little training he will be a fantastic companion for someone.


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.
