“You can't buy love, but you can rescue it"

When looking at our dogs can people please be aware of our rehoming area which is Burnley and Pendle. We go as far as Barnoldswick in one direction and Parts of Blackburn in the other but do not go out of these areas. This is rescue policy and is not open to negotiation. We require a home check before you can meet any of  our dogs who are all in foster homes in the area, we do not operate from a kennel base.
All dogs have an adoption fee of £175 payable after a trial period 
To express an interest in any of our dogs please complete the enquiry form found under the fostering/adopting tab or if you previously had a home check by us email with an address and contact number . 
Please note we do not place our dogs in homes where there are un-neutered male dogs.

Foster/Forever Home Needed!!

This fantastic girl waited a long time for her forever home and we thought we had found it for her last year. Unfortunately it wasn't to be and due to a relationship break up she is again needing our help.
Lexi is a calm intelligent girl that loves her long walks along with a play in the river , if your an energetic outdoors type of person then look no further.....can you offer Lexi the home that she so deserves?
Lexi is a 4yr old staff x mastiff girl.
She's playful and intelligent and responds well to treats when training. She seems good around small children but because of her size and bounciness wouldn't be ideal to live with them.
She is super fit and loves long walks and playing ball games. She does like to chase things so no cats or small furries for her.
She settles in really quick and is clean around the house. She barks when people come to the door but this is not excessive, she is just protecting the most important thing to her, which is her humans. This girl will give so much affection to her new family and deserves the same in return so please find a place in your home for Lexi, she will make you laugh, and she will kick start your day with a smile.
Lexi is fine when meeting dogs around but she needs to be the only dog in her home. She is a large girl and can be a bit pully but walks well on a harness. She is fine to be left for a few hours.
If you think you could help her please either message us on here or email us at

Foster home secured - under assessment

Pedro is a 19 month Brittany Spaniel who was brought into the country by another rescue but unfortunately Pedro has some resource guarding issues and has nipped a child in his current home and the rescue have advised he is put to sleep.

We don't agree and neither do his current family who love this lovely boy and understand his issues but sadly due to them he now needs a child free home.

Resource Guarding is something a lot of dogs do and it varies in severity Pedro's is not bad its mainly around his food and we confident its workable and manageable but due to this we are looking for a certain type of home for him.

No children under 12
A home where his high energy levels can be met.
A home that can keep his brain busy and focused.
A home that understands the needs of a working breed of dog
A home were he has lots of time spent with him and where he won't get left alone for long hours everyday.

Pedro can live with other dogs and cat savvy cats.

Milo is a lovely affectionate little boy, who is clean in the house, he can be left for a few hours but wouldnt enjoy a home where he was left alone every day. He would make an ideal companion for an older person or couple but would be equally happy in a family home.

Patsy is another cracking girl who keeps getting overlooked and has waited far too long for her forever home. She is a young neutered cross breed. She is described as being perfect in the house, clean, non destructive and fine to be left a few hours. Her foster home have worked hard with her and she is doing brilliantly on her lead and loves a good run and play in the garden or on her long lead. She loves people and is an affectionate girl with humans young and old. Due to her bouncy nature she would be best placed with children 8+. She would prefer to be an only dog and not share her humans and cant live with cats. Her one fault is she can be quite vocal when she meets other dogs out and about (typical terrier type!). However this is currently being worked on with her foster and a dog trainer and is improving all the time. She isn't a perfect dog (is there even such a thing??) but if you think she could be your perfect dog and you are willing to spend time getting to know her and working with her then please get in touch.

Sandy is a 7 month old Lurcher girl and is very striking in her appearance. She is a lovely sweet natured girl who just wants to be with you all the time, (even to the toilet 😂). She’s good with other dogs and fine with cats but will chase them if they decide to run. She does pull slightly on the lead but that’s usually when another person or dog walks by that she wants to meet. She will counter surf given the chance (typical lurcher). She will make a great companion with another resident dog or on her own providing the human doesn’t go out too long. She won't cope well with being left home alone all day. Due to her size and bouncy nature we wouldn't place her in homes with young children. Sandy is now ready for her forever home xx 🐶 Anyone offering her a home needs to understand she is a young girl and isn't the finished product. She is bright and a quick learner but is still work in progress and her home will need to be committed to continuing her training. If you feel like you can offer her the time and patience she needs please get in touch.

Chloe is a wonderful 16 week old Jack Russell x Staffie puppy, looking for a new home for no fault of her own.

She is a very bright puppy, who needs a home that will challenge and stimulate her. She would be perfect for dog sports (such as agility or flyball) as she is fast and focused and will work for both toys and treats. She responds very very well to kindness and positive training.

This is a dog who wants to be on the go all day... She is not a couch potato and will not suit someone who leaves her to her own devices, as she's clever enough to quickly get into trouble!

She is clean and quiet overnight in a crate (7-8 hours) and travels perfectly in a crate in the car.

She can be yappy when she wants to play with or greet a dog, so a future owner must understand how to handle this. She is also at the mouthy & nippy puppy stage, but responding well if you squeak and disengage from her when she's overstimulated.

She is good with dogs of various ages and sizes, sociable but not pushy. She hasn't been tested with cats. She's very friendly towards all people she has met while in foster, including children.

We are looking for a home that will "work" this pup in some way and make use of that switched in on brain. As with all of our pups, a condition of her adoption will be that she attends suitable training classes.

If you think you could offer Chloe the perfect home please FULLY read all the information on our website and fill the online form in. If you are already home checked please contact us with your interest to
