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. If you think you have what I need please contact the people t Pendle Dogs in Need.

Bobby - Under assessment

I am a 15 month old neutered male lurcher. He is  a lovely boy  who came into our care after an accident when he was hit by a bus. We need a foster home for him asap he is very sore as you can imagine. Lived with children and fine with other dogs.







Bandit - Available Now

Bandit is a tiny JRT cross around 2/3 years old. Bandit needs a terrier savvy home with the experience to cope with his quirks, Bandit isn't keen on strangers and would nip if he was approached by one, they need to let him come to them in his own time! Once he gets to know you though he is a loving, cuddly little man.
Bandit is generally fine with other dogs. We have had him in day care and in foster with 4 other dogs with zero issues but he has been known to take offence to some dogs, usually big ones from time to time. Bandit id fine with cats. This tiny little boy has a lot of attitude at times but its easily managed and he does listen when told......to know this little champ is to love him.
No children or busy homes for Bandit.
He would prefer a home where someone is around a lot of the day to give him lots of attention and would be an ideal companion for someone who is retired. he is ok to be left for a couple of hours though.
Could you offer this little character the loving home he deserves?

Max - Available now

Max is a lovely 6 year old male lurcher. He is currently entire (but not for long) He is a fantastic boy, great with other dogs and cats and children. Although he likes other dogs he would be fine as an only dog as well.
Max likes his food and will beg and get excited at meal times but has no food issues and does not help himself. He is good on his lead and likes some good long walks. He is clean in the house and not destructive at all. Could he be your perfect dog?



Valerie - Under Assessment
(not available for rehoming)

Valerie is a 12 month old cross breed girl who hasn't had the best start. Despite this she is a sweet dog who loves people and other dogs. More details to follow.


Jake - Adopted

Jake is a lovely young male lurcher. He is a sweet and affectionate boy. He is a very bouncy and energetic boy and because of this would be best suited to a home where there are no small children. He is great with other dogs and would be best suited to a home where he does have another dog for company. He doesn't like being left for long periods so a home where there is someone about a lot of the time would be ideal for him. He loves his walks and will need a home energetic enough to take him on good long walks every day. He cannot be rehomed where there are cats and small furries in the house. If you think you can offer the energetic and loving home that would suit this boy best please get in touch.

Tia - Available Now

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, we think she lived outside a lot.  She came to us with her puppies a few weeks back. Her pups have found their homes and now it's her turn. Tia is fine with other dogs and children. She is looking for a kind and patient home that has time to spend with her working on her training and letting her know the life of a much loved and pampered pooch. If you think you can offer her the perfect home please get in touch.

I was found straying and my owners no longer want me 😓

I'm a female small staff I'm a calm well behaved girl who's very recently been bred from....can you help me please?

We need a cat and small child free foster home for this sweet little girl.







Isla - Reserved

Isla is now 8 weeks old and looking for her forever home. She is a delightful little girl full of fun and mischief. She is a staffy cross and will very likely grow up to be quite a big girl. She is well socialised with children and other dogs. She has had her first vaccination and a clean bill of health of the vets and her new home will need to take her back to our vets for her second vaccination at 10 weeks then she can start to go out for walks :) She is looking for a family home with time to spend with her. Please note there is no trial period when rehoming one of our puppies and the adoption fee of £150 is payable at the time of adoption. However we do cover the cost of neutering at around 6 months.







Lexi - Reserved

Lexi is a 3yr 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.
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 I guarantee 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.

Bunty - Under Assessment
(not available for rehoming)

Bunty came from the stray pound and was quite fearful but she is gradually learning to trust people again in her foster home. More details to follow.

Henry - Adopted

Henry is a collie x staff boy. He is around 4 years old and has recently been neutered.  Henry is a loving dog that likes to cuddle up on the settee. He is good on the lead. He house trained. Henry loves other dogs to play with and would probably be best in a home where he has another steady dog for company. He is good with small children but we can't say how he would be around cats. Henry will let you know if someone is coming in or knocking by barking.He likes going out in the car and is a good traveller. Henry doesn't much like to be left for long so is looking for a home where there is someone around a lot of the time. He does like to sleep upstairs, not on the bed but where he knows his humans are nearby. He will make a great, loyal family member.





Eddie - Foster Home Needed

Eddie is a young Lurcher Male who was found straying. He wasn't reclaimed and after his 7 days came to PDIN and is currently in kennels waiting for a foster home to give him a chance.

He needs to be someone around most of the day and have high fences and no cats or tiny dogs.

He's such a sweetheart can you help him on the road to his new forever home.






Wilf - Available Now

Wilf is a young (approx 12 months) terrier boy. He has just been neutered. He is typical of a young terrier, very active and bouncy and can be a bit vocal. He loves playing with his toys.  He likes to go for decent walks every day and enjoys playing in the garden. He is a loving boy and likes to come up on settee for a cuddle. He sometimes still barks at other dogs when he is on his lead but is good with other dogs otherwise. He is good with children but due to his bouncy nature would be best suited to a home where the children were 8 plus. His ideal home would be with people who know the needs of a young terrier and have lots of time and attention to devote to him. He can't be rehomed with cats.

Bella - Reserved

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?

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



Boris - Reserved

Boris is in the pound kennels and we need a foster home to help us to save him.

This boy melts your heart!

Boris is a very young Akita cross breed and what a character he is. Boris likes to listen to every word you say to him while cocking his head and pulling the funniest of faces. Boris is young and can be a little giddy at times but one word and his focus is 100% back. This medium sized Teddy Bear is going to be a joy to train he's such a bright people focused boy.

Boris seems fine with other dogs but no cats or young children until fully assessed.
