Meet the dogs...

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 socialising with other dogs, how they interact with children and whether they could potentially live with cats.

Oakwood Dog Rescue works closely with International Dog Rescue,providing UK kennel space with the goal of rescuing dogs from the terrible conditions of the Romanian public shelters. Below are some of the dogs that have been lucky enough to have found a sponsor and are now safe at Oakwood looking for their forever homes...

Max - Available

Sex : Male
Size : Large
Age: 2 years

Max came to the centre in 2018 after spending his young life at a public shelter in Calarasi, Romania. He had spent his entire first year of his life being mistreated, neglected and unloved. Luckily, Max was brought over to the UK where we took him in and have tried to show him what love really is. Max has now turned two years old and will be spending his second Christmas at the centre this year. He has been over-looked in viewings as he is unsure of new people and takes time to build trust with humans. He is a young dog with a lot of potential that needs an adult only home. Once Max knows he can trust you he is like putty in your hands - he has charmed the staff and has his own fan club that loved to take him on walks with his pal, Izzy. Max is crate-trained, muzzle-trained and walks  well on a PDL harness!

The perfect home for Max: Adult only home. Female dog only. He does not like cats.

Biscuit is crate-trained and walks well on a lead.

Caden - Reserved

Sex: Female
Size: Small
Age: 8 years

Caden was one of the very earliest dogs to have been caught and placed in the Romanian public shelter. She managed to get adopted in Romania in 2012 but was returned due to no fault of her own in 2018. This was very hard for Caden to deal with and she became recluse in the shelter. Upon arrival at the centre she was wary of people, however, she now enjoys strokes and playing with tiny soft toys!

Caden would like a home where she can plod around and have peace and quiet. She has had a harsh life and needs somewhere that she can feel safe and loved.

The perfect home for Caden: Adult only home. She does not like other dogs. She can live with cats.

Kenny - Available

Sex: Male
Size: Small
Age: 3 years

Kenny was born with a birth defect which was fully corrected in Romania. He had no muscle tone on his back end when he first arrived and had to learn how to use his back leg properly as it had been twisted before his surgery. Kenny has been an absolute superstar and has been working with the staff, attending hydrotherapy sessions and physiotherapy sessions. He has been able to build up his strength and can now enjoy going out for walks with his doggy friends! Kenny is a typical JRT cross and has a plucky character! He is looking forward to finding a loving home that will continue to help him maintain his muscle mass and provide him with the unconditional love he deserves.

Kenny enjoys going on walks and loves squeaky toys!

The perfect home for Kenny: Adult only home. Female dogs only. He can live with cats.

Chewie - Available

Sex: Male
Size: Small
Age: 5 years

Chewie has been at the centre for a while, building up the confidence he needs to go up for adoption. Chewie is a timid boy due to his endless poor treatment in Romania. He is beginning to show off his goofy personality and gets very wiggly with excitement when he's around people. Chewie needs a 1-2-1 environment that will provide him with the security and love he desperately needs in order to build his confidence up. He is still wary of people but he is slowly becoming more trusting with people he knows.

Chewie enjoys a good walk and having a chew of soft toys!

The perfect home for Chewie: Adult only home, small and calm female dog. Untested with cats.

Pretty Poppy is a sweet older lady that is looking for a home where she can rest and spend the rest of her days with consistent people in her life. Poppy is beginning to struggle with the stress of kennels.

As you can see from her photo, Poppy has some issues with her sight but this doesn't hinder her in the slightest! She is very sweet and really enjoys being around people, she is a gentle girl that deserves to be out of kennels!

Poppy loves a good walk and having a good cuddle.

As soon as Lollie arrived she showed the staff her true personality - she is a very loving dog and loves a good hug! Lollie originated from Romania and can be wary of new people. She needs time to adjust and build up a bond with a family that will go at her own pace. Once she is comfortable she is the most loving dog that aims to please.

Hugo - Reserved

Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Age: 2 years

Hugo came from a private rescue which was situated on a lady's land in Romania. Hugo is a sweet soul and can be submissive when he first greets you. 

He needs a family to show him what true, unconditional love is and give him time to find his feet in a home. Hugo can be fussy when he is comfortable with you and will want lots of love and attention. Hugo would benefit from a family that ideally work from home or where he is not left alone longer than four hours at a time as he is more at ease with people around.

Hugo is trained to wear a headcollar and walks well on a lead.

The perfect home for Hugo: Children 10 and older. He does not like to share his people with other dogs. Not tested with cats.

Ivy - Available

Sex: Female
Size: Small
Age: 10 months

Ivy is a typical, bouncy puppy. She can be a little in your face with dogs and people and will need a family that can keep up with her! Ivy will need someone that is looking forward to starting training with her. She will benefit from a family that will be in the home a lot as she cannot be left for longer than 4 hours at a time due to her age and prefers to have company.

Ivy has started to go out on walks and is beginning to settle in to the runnings of the kennels.

The perfect home for Ivy: Children 13+, bouncy male dog only. Cats ok.

Bertha - Available

Sex: Female
Size: Small
Age: 1 year

Bertha is a very timid dog that has been terribly mistreated and manhandled in the Romanian shelter. As a result of this, Bertha is afraid of people and will need a very special and patient person to take her on as a project.

Unfortunately, Bertha will never become a confident or happy dog in rescue and requires a 1-2-1 environment where she can build up a solid level of trust with her owners. Bertha is available for foster with a view to adoption for when she grows in confidence in the home.

Can you be Bertha's light in the dark?

The perfect home for Bertha: Adult only, quiet home. Male dog only. Untested with cats.

Winnie - Available

Sex: Female
Size: Small/Medium
Age: 1 year

Winnie has been starved in the Romanian shelter and is currently skin and bone - we are trying to feed her up and show her some TLC! Winnie is still a bit wary around people so cannot live with young children that will easily startle her. 

When she is comfortable she is very affectionate and enjoys a hug. She is much more confident going for walks with another dog but she is not keen on bouncy dogs.

The perfect home for Winnie: Children 10+, male dog only. Cats ok.

Frankie - Available

Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Age: 1 Year Old

Frankie came to the centre in September time and we had become his 3rd home in a year. Frankie was brought to his previous owner in a tiny cat carrier at 5 months old. He has had very little socialisation with other dogs and although he doesn't react to them on  a lead he doesn't understand polite play and can become overwhelmed and take his frustrations out on other dogs, hence why he must not live with another dog.

We highly suspect that Frankie was abused in his early life as he is fear reactive to things going over the top of him. Frankie really needs a bully-breed experienced owner that is willing to do some rehab training with him so he can finally find that forever home that sticks!

The perfect home for Frankie: Adult only home, no dogs. Untested with cats.
