Dogs for Adoption

PLEASE NOTE - VIEWING RESCUE DOGS IS STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Appointments are booked after you have submitted an adoption application form and this has been approved by the adoptions team. Please do not turn up at the centre without an appointment as you will be turned away. We politely ask that you follow our adoptions process to avoid having a wasted journey and also disrupting our care of the dogs by turning up uninvited.

All new dogs into rescue are assessed and then offered to the people on our waiting list before being offered for general adoption. Your ideal dog will arrive at the centre and get adopted without you even knowing about it, unless you're on our adoptions waiting list.

IF YOU WISH TO BE NOTIFIED OF ANY NEW DOGS COMING INTO THE CENTRE THEN PLEASE FILL OUT THE ADOPTION APPLICATION FORM AND WE WILL ADD YOU TO OUR WAITING LIST.

Here you can view the dogs currently in rescue. We aim to provide a full behaviour assessment on each dog covering a range of areas from how they cope with travelling to social skills with other dogs. If you want to know more about one of our dogs, see their profiles below........   

Luca - AVAILABLE (A Foster home would also be considered)

DOB - 02/12/15

Sex - Male

Breed - Romanian Shepherd X 

Size - Medium/Large

History - Luca has come over from Romania where there are thousands of stray dogs living on the streets. He is one of the lucky few who got brought to England for the chance at a better life. Romanian dogs are often treated badly and so they learn early in life to be cautious of humans in their fight for survival. Luca was brought over the UK by another rescue who placed him into a foster home in Ireland, who then couldn't foster any longer. Luca was homeless until Oakwood stepped in to provide him with a temporary home, as such we are caring for him on the rescues behalf.

Personality - Luca is very shy, he has been through alot in his short life, he is starting to learn to trust humans and is coming out of his shell. Once you win his affection he likes having his ears rubbed and loves to play with a stuffed squeaky toy! 

He's very shy of people and takes time to warm up to you, a little gentle encouraging with his favourite treats do the trick. It's such a rewarding moment when he comes out to greet you and asks for a love.

We are looking for a very special home for Luca, someone who is happy to take on a training project, Luca needs someone who can help him become the dog he should always have been before he was mistreated by humans. A long term foster home would also be considered.

A little message from Luca -

"I'm still very scared and frightened that something bad might happen to me, life was hard in Romania. I want a quiet home with a nice human I can learn to trust"

Specific Requirements - Can live with calm, sensible female dogs only, can live with cats, Quiet adult only home (16yrs+) because Luca is shy and a busy home with children will overwhelm him.

As a result, he needs vet treatment and rehab for 6 months. He's a lovely little fellow and he doesn't want to spend the next 6 months in rescue.

Willy can be homed with cats, older children and quiet female dogs. He is used to a crate and can be left for up to 5 hours per day.

All costs will be covered by us.

Due to the length of time we ask that your seriously consider if you will be able to commit to the 6 months period as sending him back to us isn't an option, this is for Willy's benefit.

Important Information To Consider

Before you take on a rescue dog please consider that many of these dogs have not had the best of starts in life. Many have not had any time invested in them so they don't know how to behave in an acceptable way, this is something we need to teach them. 

They will take time to settle into a new home. There may be problems you will need to work through, hence the free training and support Oakwood gives you. They might poo in the house, they might bark when you leave them, they might destroy something. Please listen to what we tell you at the viewings and during the visits, we know these dogs and disclose everything we know. Deeply consider what you are told about the dog and its personality before you offer the dog a home. It does them no favours to go into a home for a week and then come back to the kennels. 

With training and guidance they will settle, if you do nothing and bring them back after a short time then it makes them harder to place next time as they get upset every-time they are brought back and the problems become harder to tackle. Please be sure you can commit to a rescue dog before you take them home.

To view our adoption requirements, click here. IF YOU WANT TO APPLY TO ADOPT ONE OF OUR DOGS, PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM, CLICK HERE

So you can more accurately assess the size of a dog you are looking at, please use our size guide.

Their status (AVAILABLE, AVAILABLE TO WAITING LIST ONLY, or RESERVED,) is listed. Unfortunately due to the time-consuming nature of young dogs and children, we are not able to re-home to people who have dogs under 1 year old or children under 1 year of age. We will also not re-home to anyone who has a dog with existing behavioural issues, as it could potentially worsen the issue or cause the adopted dog to develop an issue. Existing dogs will also need to be spayed or neutered before adopting a new dog.
