Dog of the Month!



Age - 2 Years Old 

Sex - Male

Breed - American Bulldog x Mastiff

Size - Large

History - Nelson has come to us from a loving family who found themselves no longer in a position to care for him, so sadly had to re-home him.

Personality - Nelson is a lovely friendly but rather large boy. He loves people and is friendly with dogs too. Nelson has previously lived with children but due to his size and strength we would prefer him to go with older children. He does need some training as he is very strong on the lead. We are not sure what he is like around cats or small animals as he has never really been around them. He is a slobber chops so his family must be able to cope with this. Nelson has lots of love to give, could you be the one for him.



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 Registerd Chairty 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.
