Pendle Dogs in Need

Click here to edit subtitle

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 £150 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 [email protected] with an address and contact number . 

Why do we restrict our rehoming area?

We are aware that lots of other rescues home dogs countrywide but when PDiN was set up a decision was made to keep all our dogs close by and it works well for both us and our dogs. We put a lot of input into our dogs, we personally know each and every one of them and we want to keep them close by. PDiN is run by a small group of hard working dedicated volunteers who give their free time up to help us to find the perfect homes for our dogs, they do the home checks, they place the dogs, they liaise closely and offer help and backup with the homes while the dogs is in either foster or on trial, they help with vet runs, training advice and lots more and when the time is right they complete the adoption. After adoptions have taken place we are always here if needed for both the dog and the homes and we just could not do all this if we placed dogs outside of our area, we know our limits and we stick to them for the sake of our dogs and their new homes. Once a dog comes under our safety net it stays there for life.

We are sorry that people think we are just being awkward we assure you that is not the case, we just know our limits and stick to them for the sake of our dogs and our very hardworking little team of volunteers.

Lola - Reserved

Lola is a 4yr old female GSD Lola is a lovely natured girl who is fine with other dogs but can be scared of small dogs, she is great with children, fine with cats and ok to be left. Lola wouldn't be happy as a only dog we feel she would fret so a resident friendly dog is a must for this girl.

Lola is a clever responsive girl who aims to please but she is strong on the lead so whoever offers her a home needs to work on this. Lola is great off lead though.

Lola will not be placed in a home where she would get left alone for hours everyday she's a girl that needs company and plenty of walks.

Bella - Under Assessment

Bella is a three year old chihuahua girl. She is a lovely girl who is so far proving to be good with dogs and children. Bella doesn't like to be left for long periods.

More details will be added as we get to know her.


Pippa - Available Now 

Pippa is 15 year old jrt girl who came to us due to her owners ill health. Pippa is looking for a patient and dog experienced retirement foster home. She is described by her foster home as a bit of a grumpy old lady who is quite set in her ways and knows her own mind :) She likes a walk and does like to sleep on the sofa and even on your bed if she can. If you think you can offer he what she needs for her twilight years then please get in touch.

As a lifetime foster any vet bills will be covered by the rescue.


Cooper - Available Now

********* UPDATE**************
Info from his previous home led us to the decision he could not live in harmony with another male. However whilst in foster this has proved to be not the case and he has spent a lot of time with dogs of both sexes with no issue. If you have previously applied and been turned away for this reason and meet all his other criteria please get back in touch :) 

Cooper is a 3 year old neutered male Dachshund. He is a large boy for the breed and is full of character. He needs a calm and dog experienced home that will not treat him as a lap dog and will set some boundaries with him so he doesn't think he is the boss. He likes the company of other dogs and would prefer at least one to live with . He is crate trained and well behaved in the house, no chewing or any similar problems. He likes to potter round the garden but any home needs to make the garden Cooper proof as he does like a wander. he also loves to play with toys. He does like to sleep and his foster says he could snooze on a washing line. He can be a bit of a puller on his lead but this is being worked on by his foster home.
He would suit a dog savvy retired home with lots of time to spend with him. He can't be rehomed with children under 12. He is fine with cats.
If you think you can offer him the perfect home please get in touch.

Bobby - Reserved

Im Bobby a 18 month old neutered male lurcher.
I came into PDiN after escaping and being run over by a bus, I was very lucky all I got was scrapes and cuts. 

Bobby is great with other dogs and would really prefer another youngish dog to live with and play with but could be fine as an only dog as long as someone was in most of the day. He is clean and well behaved in and out of the house. He is fine to be left for a few hours (with doggy company) He is fine with children of all ages, loves them. He cannot be rehomed with a cat. If you feel you can offer Bobby his perfect home please get in touch





Tara - Reserved

Tara is a 10 year old terrier girl who came to us when her owner sadly passed away. This lovely girl is looking for a quiet home to love her. She is great in the house, very well behaved. She loves to go out on walks and is good on her lead, Typical terrier she does sometimes bark when meeting other dogs but soon settles and has enjoyed mixing with all sorts of dogs at our play sessions at The Dogs Den. Her ideal home would be with an older couple or person with lots of time to spend with her. She can be a bit nervous around small children so over 8s only and she can't be rehomed with a cat. If you think you can offer her the perfect home please get in touch











Valerie - Adopted

This lovely girl came to us a few weeks back. She didn't have the best start in life and she was very scared of everything. She went into one of our amazing foster homes and slowly learnt to trust people and behave like a dog, enjoying walks and cuddles. It really wasn't plain sailing and she had some challenges along the way but she is now ready to move to her forever home. Valerie is just a year old and is still very shy when meeting new people for the first time. Her ideal home will be a quiet home where there isn't lots of people coming and going and where the people have lots of time to pay her attention. She would like another doggy friend to live with, her foster brothers and her are very close and she wouldn't be happy as an only dog. She is fine with children but ideally they would only be there sometimes (like grandchildren). She needs new owners who are experienced, very calm, gentle and patient and happy to help her continue developing her confidence.
We always want special homes for our dogs but for this brave and special girl the new home will have to be EXTRA special!
 




Zac - Adopted

Im Zac

I'm only a small dog and under a year old. I came into PDiN very scared but Im already learning to trust. I love going for walks and out in the car I like all other dogs but not cats. My new home would have to be with children over the age of 12 due to me being a little nervous.

Zac is a young small lurcher around 10-12 months old. We think he is probably a patterdale x whippet, he's a lovely boy who came to us in a very scared state but due to the love of his foster home he has learnt to trust and enjoy life.

Zac needs a home where he will get lots of attention and walks he would not suit a working home where he would spent a lot of time alone. Zac loves other dogs and would really benefit from living with another confident dog. Zac loves his walks and is good on his lead but his favourite pastime is to go a drive, he adores the car. This young boy is going to make someone very happy he is such a loving dedicated 

Alfie - Reserved

Alfie is a 5 yr old staff x. Wonderful boy who loves everyone he's just a all round nice guy. Alfie is fine to live with children,other dogs and cats and is non destructive when left.

He is a very loving boy who forms close bonds with people and wouldn't enjoy a home where he spent a lot of time alone, he's great off the lead he never leaves your side, bit of a softy at time he hates the rain lol.

Alfie has got a heart murmur he has had since being born but this does not affect him at all.

A perfect family boy!

More details will be added as we get to know him

Millie - Available now 

Millie is a 5 year old jrt girl. She is a lovely girl who is good with children but can be a little nervous and grumpy on first meeting other dogs so she would prefer a home where she is the only dog. She likes a good walk and to play with her toys. She is ok to be left for a few hours but wouldn't cope with being left all day. She cant be rehomed with a cat. She would be an ideal dog for a retired person or couple.

Tia - Adopted

Tia is a 2 year old Staffy cross girl with the sweetest nature you could meet. She hasn't had a great start in life, 

Bred from twice while so very young, often found walking the streets alone, unloved and never really wanted by anyone, does this seem fair to you? It doesn't to us :-(

Tia came to us after it came to our attention  her last litter of pups were being sold at just four weeks old to anyone who had a few pound spare to buy one, we already knew of this poor girl so when we also heard she had taken ill we persuaded them to hand her over to us along with the remaining babies. Tia was seriously ill with a massive infection but luckily we got her in time and even though it was touch and go for a couple of days she made a good recovery and was even well enough to be reunited with her babies to give them the best start in life she could. Tia was a fantastic Mummy to her babies even when so poorly she still took such gentle care of them all.

Tia's babies have now all found their forever homes but Tia is still waiting. Tia has such a gentle nature she adores everyone she meets and just wants to cuddle up close for affection. She's a good girl who is fine with other dogs, loves children (a little too much at times so no under 6's for this girl). No cats for Tia. 

Tia has been through so much in her short life yet remains one of the nicest, sweetest dogs we have ever helped, people should be queuing up to offer her a home but not one suitable home has come forward.

Please consider whether you could give this sweet girl the loving forever home she now deserves.


Ella - Adopted

Little Bella came to us with a nasty ear infection which is currently under treatment. She is a lovely girl who will be looking for a quiet home soon.

Bunty - Adopted

Bunty is a 2 year old Shihtzu girl. She has come a long way since she came to us a frightened little girl from the pound and is now ready for a home of her own. She is looking for an experienced, kind and patient home with lots of time to continue the good work in her foster home and help her to develop and let her know its ok to trust all people. She is still very nervous when first meeting people and is particularly wary of men so needs a home that understands this and is willing to give her the space she needs to come round in her own time. She likes quiet and routine in her life. She loves going out for walks so a fairly active home would suit her best as well. She is fine around other dogs and ok with cats etc. She won't be rehomed where there are small children living or as regular visitors. She is clean in the house and ok to be left 2 or 3 hours. Once you get to know her and she trusts you she is a lovely girl but she is by no means a lap dog and can still be quite aloof although she has started coming for a cuddle at times. If you think you can offer her the perfect home please get in touch.


Monty - Available Now

Monty is a lovely neutered 8yr old cross breed possibly Ridgeback x Labrador who needs a new home due to no fault of his own. Monty is a ideal family dog he loves children and babies is fine with other dogs and cats, quite a laid back lazy boy at times but always available for cuddles.

Monty is a well trained boy but can be a little pully on the lead at times when he's excited about his walks.






Dolly - Reserved

Dolly is a terrier girl who came to us from the pound. So far she is proving to be a little star and good with everything.

More details will follow as we get to know her.


Darcy - Available Now 

Darcy will be 8 weeks old on Friday and will be ready for his forever home. He came to us as a tiny and poorly pup but thanks to his fosters care is now a bouncy healthy boy. We don't know what breed his is or what size he will grow to, but suspect some sort of bulldog. He is a very full on little man who will need a young doggy playmate to live with (we think he would be too much for an older dog). He can be a bit mouthy so will not be placed where there are young children. His new home will need to commit to taking him to training classes. He will not be rehomed where he is left alone a lot during the day. 

Alfie - Reserved

Alfie is a three year old male chi. He is a large boy and currently entire but that will change soon. He is a quiet boy and a bit nervous. He is fine with other dogs and would probably be happiest with a friend to live with although could be an only dog where he got lots of human attention and company. He can’t be rehomed with children under 10. He is good in the house but still a little nervous in busy situations and out on walks. He is looking for a kind and patient home who can give him lots of love ans attention.

















Badger - Available now


I am a one year older neutered Lurcher boy. I am a lovely boy but can be a little nervous when first meeting people but once I get to know you I am very loving. I am looking for a special home that will love me back and spend lots of time giving me attention. I am great with other dogs and would love a calm doggy companion to live with. I am a bit nervous of children so would prefer to live with older ones (12+) I really don't like cats.

I am fine to be left for a few hours, I just sleep till you return. I like going for walks and am very good on the lead.

Badger is such a wonderful young boy and made so much progress since he arrived in his foster home and was scared of the world. Now he needs someone who can love him long term!

Holly - Adopted

My name is Holly and I'm about 20 weeks old Staffie Cross, don't know what means but I look cute. 😍

My foster mum says I'm very playful and cheeky. I'm good on the lead, I know how to sit nicely but I do wonder why I have to lie down but I'm learning. I do have the odd accident so I'm not totally house trained but I'm getting better.

I want to play with the resident cats but they don't seem to want to, I don't know why!
I'm living with another dog at the moment, but I think equally I would be ok as an only dog. As long as I'm not left long periods of time and get lots of cuddles and play time.

I am looking for a home that has time to spend with me. If you think you are perfect for me, then please fill out the enquiry form on the pdin website for a home check or message the lovely people at pdin if you've already had your homecheck.

Please note there is no trial period when rehoming puppies and the adoption fee of £150 is payable at the time of adoption. However pdin do cover the cost of neutering at around 6 months.

I look forward to meeting my new family soon xx


Bella - Adopted 

Bella is a female EBT cross around 10-12 months old.  She's a typical boisterous youngster at times but is doing well on the lead and is doing really well with her house training.  She's met lots of other dogs and has been very sociable not showing any sign of aggression. Bella can be  a little boisterous on meeting small children but does soon calm down. She really is a lovely girl who is great in the house and loves her cuddles. Could she be the dog for you?












Benji - Adopted

This lovely boy has come such a long way in his foster home but due to an unexpected illness is looking for a new foster home or forever home quite soon.
Benji is a delightful cross breed boy, around a year old, he isn't yet neutered but will be soon. He is great with everyone he meets, loves other dogs, children and is great with cats. He is a bouncy young boy and loves his walks and is a good boy on and off the lead. In the house he loves to play (mostly with his toys but he has been known to pinch odd items like socks) and he loves cuddles. He is fine to leave a couple of hours. He is nearly toilet trained now but does have the odd accident, he hasn't lived in a house before so that's understandable. He is a bright boy with so much love to give
