Happily Ever After

We have helped many unwanted dogs throughout the years find their happy ever after and are hoping to save many more in the future!

Wondering how you can help us do that?

2020

So far this year Oakwood Dog Rescue has rehomed 117 dogs!

Sadly our adoptions have come to a hault during the covid-19 crisis and as our fundraising has stopped as well we are really struggling financially. We have finally been able to start rehoming dogs again but our fundraising activities are still very limited so please consider donating to us and help us keep the roof over their heads before they can find their forever homes!

Our beautiful Thistle has been adopted! She has made herself right at home and loves having snuggles with her human sister!

We wish you the best of luck Thistle!

Sara (now Mable)

The sweet, yet nervous Sara found a very loving and patient family yesterday! They were very understanding of her difficult life and were happy to give her all the love, time and patience she needs to be able to progress in a loving home. Nervous dogs are usually difficult for us to rehome as they do not fit the mould - they need dedicated people to work with them and bring them out of themselves. Sara came from a private shelter and so had better care than most of our dogs, however she was still very shy with new people. Adoptions like these are always very special to us and pull on our heart strings. 

We wish them the very best of luck in their journey together!

Riley

Not a lot of you will have had the chance to meet our sweet boy Riley. When he first arrived with us at Oakwood he was so terrified of people due to how he had been treated in his past. We didn’t give up on him though and searched our hardest to find the perfect home for him! Now our beautiful nervous boy Riley has been adopted! His amazing new family came to build up the trust with him everyday leading up to his adoption, in order to form a bond, and build up his trust in them, just look at what they achieved! 

We are so so happy for you Riley! Words can not express it! Enjoy living your happy ever after! We love you!

Frank

Our little Frank trotted off with his new mummy this afternoon happy as can be! Getting a photo was the hard part... he just wanted belly rubs off mummy! 

We couldn’t think of a better birthday present for our darling boy! Good luck Frank we will miss your cheeky little chops!

Rufus

That's right the lovable doofus, Rufus, has found his forever family! Rufus loves attention and luckily he has enough new siblings to be able to take it in turns to give him some love! We are gonna miss this clumsy, hilarious lump but we could not be happier to see him get the love and attention he deserves! 

Good Luck Rufus!

Bertha

We are so pleased to announce that Bertha has finally been adopted! It wasn't possible to touch her when she first arrived with us and it was a long road to teach her that not all people are scary! We love this photo because you can see these two quickly developed a very special bond and they have trotted off together to enjoy the peaceful life this brave little girl deserves. She's taking to life in a home like a duck to water and has already discovered the joys of being a sofa dog! 

We live for these moments.... Seeing a dog walk away with their new best friend is the dream come true. Have a lovely life ladies!

Sooty

We've had a right fun time with Sooty and his new family during his adoption appointment!

Everyone had ants in their pants and were itching get off and start their new lives together so we had to give "nice photos"a miss and instead share this awesome one of just how much fun they had. It's so lovely seeing the joy adoptions bring to the dogs and their families!

Have fun you lovely lot!

Finn

This cute little fella was so scared of people he needed a special family who could give him time and gain his trust. Luckily for him he found a lovely couple who have dedicated so much time and energy into him and they decided to adopt him. It's amazing what time and love can do for a dog who's had a hard life. We are so grateful to the families who adopt our extra special dogs and give them a chance!

He still gets super scared of people but he's now got a home for life and is enjoying trips to the beach and snuggles on the sofa. He's even made a doggy friend!

Good luck little guy!

Good luck Yari! We will miss you!

Millie (now Elsie)

The beautiful and dainty Millie has trotted off to her forever home with her new mummy! Millie had had quite enough of poking and prodding, collar changing and chip scanningthat she just wanted to get home, she did not have time for photographs!

Millie arrived petrified, she hid in the back of her kennel, she ran away from you on the field and refused to walk on a lead. Over the weeks she slowly became more confident and really enjoyed having a play in the halls. Her mum understands that she still has a long way to go but she knew that Millie would never progress in kennels.

Isabella

We've had our first adoption of 2020!

Isabella arrived in March 2019 and was a terrified but sweet little girl. She's been living with a lovely foster family and they've decided to adopt her so she now has a forever home all of her own!

She's grown in confidence so much and absolutely loves going to the beach with her new mum and dad, and her big brother Lewis. 

Have a lovely life Bella!

2019

What a wonderful year 2019 has been for Oakwood Dog Rescue, we have managed to find forever homes for 87 dogs this year! We wish them all the best of luck with their new families and are hoping to help many more dogs in the upcoming year!

Iris

We've had our final adoption of 2019 and it's a very special one. Iris has been adopted by her foster family!

Iris wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who donated towards helping to cover her medical bills. Her vet did more x-rays and they've decided that operating on her leg will cause more problems for her than it will fix (Any remaining money donated will stay in our vets account to help out the next dog in need!) so she had the all clear to be adopted just before Christmas!

Here is Iris with her big brother Lewis. They're waiting patiently for Santa and the elves tell us they're going to get very spoilt this year. The best gift of all for Iris was her new Mum and Dad giving her a forever home!

Biscuit

Biscuit has also been adopted this weekend! He spent exactly 10 months at the rescue centre. His new family adopted another dog from us last year called Lucy (you may remember her as Peg) and Biscuit absolutely loves her.

We're so happy for them all, have a lovely life little fella!

Pudding (now Pudsey)

Pudding has had a very short stay at the centre and has been adopted just in time to be Christmas Pudding.

He's only little bit he certainly made a big impression on us, and his new family. We wish them all a lovely life together!

Ivy

Yesterday we said goodbye to the beautiful Ivy, she has now gone to live with her new mum and dad further afield! 

Gorgeous Ivy had made quite an impression on the staff and volunteers, due to her massive personality and character. Her mum and dad fell in love with her upon first sight and couldn't wait to whisk her away to her forever home 

Wishing you 3 the very best Christmas and New year, and lots of luck in your forever home!

Charlie (now Archie)

A little more upbeat news for you all today, our rescue Charlie, now Archie, has been adopted! 

Charlie was in need of a foster placement due to a health issue when he met his forever family, they knew from the off that they wanted to adopt him and so he began a foster placement with a view to adoption. It wasn't an easy placement to say the least and they had their ups and downs but everyone worked very hard to help this adoption take place. Charlie's family have big hearts, they understood that taking on a Romanian rescue would be tough, and worked with the team to help Charlie begin to settle into home life. They are still working on him and are pushing forward as a team they also know that they have lifetime support from Oakwood and that we are there to provide any advice they need. 

Wishing you all the best of luck! Here's to Charlie's first Christmas in his loving home.

Rosie

Pretty Rosie has packed her bags and left the centre! She has gone to live further afield with her new Mum and Dad! As soon as this trio met they were meant to be. Rosie instantly connected with her new parents and we were told today that mum had a little tear up when Rosie entered the room the first time. 

Rosie will now have a safe, warm and loving family home this Christmas. We wish them the very best of luck together!

Frankie

Our gorgeous boy Frankie was so excited to be going home with his new mummy and daddy yesterday that he couldn't sit still! He loves his dad so much he couldn't hold back the kisses! We will miss this little ball of fun so much, it may have taken a little longer than expected, but Frankie has finally found his forever home!

Good luck Franks!

Captain

You won't have seen much of this special little guy as he's been living with some lovely foster carers instead of at the centre. Captain has some extra special needs because he was born with a birth defect so his legs haven't grown properly and would have probably died in Romania if he hadn't come to England. Lucky for Captain his new dad saw him and fell head over heels in love. He has now been adopted and they're looking forward to lots of sofa snuggles this winter! 

Wishing you lots of happiness boys, have fun together!

Callie

Our gorgeous Callie has been adopted this week!

We try to take nice photos at adoption but sometimes the bloopers are way more fun! That has always been the case with Callie so she's going out the way she came in, full of fun and taking life at her own pace! Her new doggy parents absolutely adore her as you can probably tell. 

We're so happy for them all! Have a wonderful life together!

Stanley

Our lovely little Stanley has gone off to his forever home! This gorgeous boy really charmed his new family and they fell head over heels for him! Stanley will spend his first Christmas in the warmth and security of a loving home, rather than the cold, Arctic temperatures of the Romanian shelter.

We wish them the best of luck!

Llama

Our little Llama has a furever home!! He trotted off with his new mummy and daddy this morning for his happy ever after! 

We wish this cheeky chappie the very best of luck in his new home! We will miss you!

Ziggy (now Kurly)

Our little rocket Ziggy has been adopted! We couldn’t be happier for him and his new family! They have given him a new name too! He will now be called Kurly! Because of his curly tail 

We wish you all the luck in the world Kurly. Have the best life you little cutie!

Willow (now Teddy)

Lovely little Willow has trotted off to his forever home and had been given the cuddly new name of Teddy! Willow arrived matted and filthy, but this friendly little boy caught everyone's eye and was soon sought after. 

We wish you the very best of luck little man! We have a feeling you're going to be a very spoiled doggy!

Louis (now Kiba)

We knew this gorgeous lad wouldn't stay with us for long! Louis arrived terrified and shied away from human touch. Once he realised that we weren't going to hurt him he started to show his soft and loving side. Louis, now named Kiba, has found his forever home that will allow his confidence to grow. He was a little fed up by the end of his appointment and just wanted to get home!

We wish you the very best of luck in your new home!

Tricksie (now Lexi)

Our little Tricksie trotted off home with her new mummy and daddy! She is going to be one spoilt doggo! She also has a new posh name of Lexi! 

We wish you all the love and happiness in the world Lexi! You deserve it princess!

Fudge

We knew this little guy wouldn't be with us for very long either!

Fudge has been adopted this week and has scampered off to his new home. Here he is snuggled up at home with his new big Sister and his Mummy! He's already getting brave and is going out on longer walks with them which he was too scared to do before!

Have a wonderful life with your new family Fudge!

Pepper

The sweet, beautiful Pepper has been rehomed! 

This lovely boy wasn't with us very long due to his adoring nature! Good luck in your forever home Pepper, although your stay with us was brief we all fell deeply in love with you!

Winnie (now Millie)

Our lovely little Winnie - now known as Millie, has gone to her forever home!

Winnie arrived very malnourished and was incredibly skinny. Staff and volunteers worked tirelessly to help her pack on some pounds before her viewing in which her new family fell head over heels in love with her!

Good luck to you all, we look forward to receiving as many pupdates as possible!

Chewie (now Charlie)

Chewie arrived at Oakwood very frightened. With lots of time and patience the staff and volunteers started to rebuild his trust in people but we only made slow progress. What he really needed was a special family who could see his potential and were willing to wait until he was ready to accept them.

We're pleased to say he's finally found them and they've adopted him!! Here he is taking a snooze in his comfy new bed. They know it will take him time to trust them and love them, but they're willing to wait until he's ready!

Good luck Chewie, we couldn't be any happier for you and your new parents! 

Angel (now Inger)

Angel quickly became one of the favourites here at Oakwood, her sweet nature won over the hearts of volunteers and dog walkers in no time so no wonder she's been snapped up by her new family!

Good luck Angel!

The adorable Alfie has also been adopted! This shy boy went into foster and after a little while his parents decided to adopt him! 

Good luck Alfie!

After 647 days in rescue, 3 surgeries, some wonderful vets, a dedicated team of staff and volunteers and thousands of pounds donated by our absolutely amazing and generous supporters, a wonderful lady with a space in her heart & her home, and.....

SMOKEY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!!

This little lady has been an absolute labour of love. We've had so many ups and downs with this little poppet, it's been amazing to see the relationship develop between her and her new Mummy. It was love at first sniff! True to form, she refused to pose for photos and rolled over and demanded a belly rub. 

We wish you the best of luck in your forever home Smokey!

Cara

This beautiful, goofy, fluffball has also been adopted! We waved farewell to Cara who gave her new family the run around trying to get a nice family photo. 

We liked the bloopers the best! Have a lovely life pretty lady!   

Bez

This gorgeous boy literally bounced out of our centre with his new Mummy this weekend. We didn't have you very long Bez but you certainly made an impression. 

Good luck in your new home monster chops, we'll miss you!

Buddy

All your sharing, likes and comments finally found Buddy his forever home! 

Buddy was one of our more nervous dogs and found the life in kennels difficult! He was being overlooked as he was so shy but look how relaxed he looks after only a few days!

After over 3 years in rescue he now has his own family! We wish you and your new family the best of luck!

Sasha (now Maisie)

We have some lovely news to brighten up a miserable rainy Sunday! Sasha has been adopted! She's going to be called Maisie now and we've just had a message to say she's curled up asleep on the backseat of the car on her way home to North Yorkshire! 

Have a lovely life together the 3 of you!

We wish you all of the very best Ollie!

We wish them all of the best of luck!

Sheep (now Rosie)

Our sweet little girlie Sheep has found her furever home! 

This little lap dog is going to be spoilt rotten by her new mummy and daddy! They have even given her a beautiful new name of Rosie! She may not have been here long but she definitely pulled on some heartstrings while she was!

Please join us in wishing Rosie and her new parents all the best for their future together! Good luck!

Izzy

If you have followed us for any length of time you will have seen Izzy's face plastered everywhere. This shy, yet stunning lady struggled so much in the kennels and was awaiting her forever home for 10 months! 

Izzy has FINALLY been rehomed. As soon as she met her new family we knew it was meant to be, she got along great with her new brother and was putting her paw on her new mum and dad asking for treats. This was the most confident the staff had seen her with new people. 

Izzy grew up in a Romanian shelter and never had a positive bond with a human. Originally she was so petrified she would wee if you touched her. She has really taken to her new mum and dad and has already started to create such a special bond with them. She was almost unrecognisable on her home check as she bounded over with confidence to greet us, tail up in the air waggling!

Alf

The gorgeous cuddle-bug Alf has found his forever mummy and daddy! He arrived very nervous and slowly became friendlier the longer he was at the centre. Alf was great meeting his new sister and loves play time! Apart from being a little scared of the car Alf has started to settle in very well - we wish you all of the very best guys!

Brockers (now Brocks)

Brockers has gone off to his new home! This little man charmed his new owners the second he trotted into the hall! Brockers had started to become a little wary around new people, but luckily his new mum and dad have been very patient with him and are looking forward to letting him find his feet in his new home. 

We wish you the very best of luck little man!

Jax

Our little survivor Jax has returned to full health and found his furever family! 

We couldn’t be happier for him! He trotted off home with his dad to see the rest of his new family and he looked so happy!

Good luck for the future little man! We will miss you so so much!

Mervin (now Alfie)

Finally our little love Mervin has been adopted!  

He’s trotted off to his furever home with his new mummy & daddy and we can tell he is going to be one spoilt little boy! They have even given him a lovely new name of Alfie!  

We want to wish Alfie and his lovely new family all the luck in the world in their new lives together! We miss you already!

Hazel

This gorgeous little poppet has been adopted! 

Hazel is such a timid little girl but she won the hearts of her new owners and 4 legged brother Lenny the moment they met her. She's had a big week getting to know them and having her collar changed and chips scanned made her a bit scared so when we posed for photos she'd just had enough and wanted to go home, and we can't blame her.  

We hope you enjoy your new home sweetie pie, you will definitely be very well loved!

Simba (now Buddy)

Our 50th dog Rehomed in 2019 has left the building!

Wishing you all of the best!

Mirren (now Lola)

The scruffy, matted bundle of fluff who arrived a few weeks ago has transformed into this gorgeous girl!

Bobita (now Bobby)

Remember our little golden oldie Bobita? Well, he has finally been adopted! His foster carer fell in love with him and couldn't part with him! 

Bob spent almost his entire 10 years not knowing true human affection and was stuck in shelters. When he came over to the UK he needed some medical treatment and went into foster. Since then we have had lots of fabulous updates and he has settled in well! 

We wish you the very best of luck Bobby!

Eddie

Little Eddie has trotted off this morning with his new dad to his forever home! 

When Eddie first arrived, he was very scared but very quickly he let his sweet personality shine through!

We wish you the best of luck Eddie!

Luna

Remember this gorgeous face? That's right, Luna has been adopted! This sweet girl went into foster a couple of months back to be treated for a medical problem and charmed her foster family so much that they decided to keep her.

Wishing you the very best of luck Livvie, you were the sweetest cuddle bug going!

Misty

Misty has been temporarily fostered by her new family until she had the all clear from her medical treatment. Her tests came back clear and they've finally been able to adopt her! We're very happy for them all and Misty has them wrapped around her little paw. Especially her new Dad who thought he wanted a "big dog". 

We've got lots of families now who are fostering dogs who they will then adopt and we encourage you not to overlook foster dogs... they will be available to adopt sooner or later, you could be missing out on a little gem like Misty

Jenni (now Penny)

Little Jenni has gone off to her forever home! This little lady began the week rather wary and shy, but by the end of her hometrial her confidence had greatly come on and she would instantly happy wag at the sight of her new mum and dad! She even said her goodbyes to everyone in reception as she was making her way out which she wouldn't have attempted before! 

Adopting a nervous dog like Jenni is not only beneficial for the dog - getting them into a 121 environment with care and love, but it is so rewarding for the adopters - the first time they wag their tail, chase a ball and come for affection off of their own back is like hitting new miles stones each day! You see them flourish and grow in trust and confidence.

Roxie (now Maya)

Roxie was a very sweet dog that everyone fell in love with almost instantly.

She was left caring for 15+ four month old in the Romanian shelter before she was brought to us, yet despite her hardship she was such an affectionate girl.

We wish Roxie all of the best in her new home!

Dez

Dez was reserved and awaiting kennel space for years. Upon arrival this golden oldie surprised us all with his puppy-like antics.

Dez's new owner tragically lost her previous rescue, Bonnie, a few weeks back and fell head over heels for this gentle giant!

We wish you both the very best!

She lived in a Romanian shelter for years, she managed to escape an overpopulation cull due to being such a friendly girl. Mable was saved as the shelter removed her ear tag to look as though she didn't exist in their records.

Good luck in your new home Mable, you really deserve it!

Pepper

Pepper arrived at the centre incredibly nervous and scared. Luckily, she didn't have to wait too long to catch her lovely adopters eyes.

Pepper's story is an inspirational one, and we hope that she inspires more willing people to consider putting time into a nervous dog - they are the most loving at all when you have earned their trust!

Rosie (now Sasha)

What a sweet little girl Rosie was. She started off very nervous but as soon as she realised she was in a safe place she really came on leaps and bounds.

She became a firm favourite and found her loving family with one of our ex-rescues Bertie!

Good luck to you Rosie, you deserve the best!
