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 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.

Sacha - Reserved

Sacha is a 10 month old Rottie x Sharpei girl. She first came to us as a puppy however due to a change in her family circumstances she is back in our care. 

She loves other dogs and her ideal home would be with another dog as company, however she would be ok on her own with human attention.  She's fine with cats. She's good to be left non destructive and happy to  sleep in her crate. . She's fine with children but is very big and bouncy so probably best with older ones.. She's very loyal and has great recall. She loves her walks and would be best suited to a very active home. 

Max - Foster or Forever Home needed


Max is an 18 month old, currently entire, but soon to be neutered, male GSD.He loves the company of other dogs and currently lives with a labrador. He is pretty good with cats as well. Max is very loving, loves cuddles, and loves being fussed over. Typical of the breed he can be bouncy and energetic. He needs some work on his lead but is very good off the lead. He is used to being left for a few hours,but on return can be over bouncy. He needs a home with older children (12+) only.  

Oscar - Adopted

Oscar is a 17 month old Springer x male. He is neutered. He is good with other dogs and children. He is currently in foster and more details will be added as we have them. (please note there is a good chance his foster home may adopt him)

Please note 

We are unable to answer any enquiries about her until fully assessed and advertised as available for adoption 

Oscars foster home have now adopted him.

Cooper - Adopted

********* 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.

Bess - Reserved

Bess is a much loved girl who is looking for a new forever home due to her ex owners ill health.

Bess is 9 years young and a total joy to be around, she adores children, loves other dogs and likes to fuss and lick cats. Bess is far from old she's a very playful active girl who really needs some children to call her own that she can fuss and play with everyday, Bess would prefer to be in a home with another dog to cuddle up to but could be happy alone as long as she got lots of attention.

Please don't be put off by her age these little tinkers often live to be 18/20 years old and Bess still thinks she's a puppy.

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 - Reserved

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.

Eddie - Reserved

Eddie is a young Lurcher Male who was found straying. Eddie is a lovely boy who is looking for his forever home now. Eddie can be excitable on first meeting another dog but soon settles down.

He would like it best if there was someone around a lot of the day but he can be left with no problems for 3 or 4 hours.

He is clean in the house and good on his lead. 

A bright boy who has lots of love to give.

Eddie cannot be rehomed where there are cats or small furries.

If you think this boy is the one for you please get in touch

Charlie - Under assessment

For Charlie a 3 year old male Jrt who needs a new home through no fault of his own. He is fine with most other dogs but we feel he'd be best in a home with other nice natured dogs of a similar size, he's never lived with cats and is said to be fine with children but until assessed he can't be placed with children under 10.

Charlie is fine to be left for a few hours a day he is clean and non destructive, he needs a active home with lots of long walks, attention and a secure outside area.

Millie - Adopted

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.

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!

JC - Adopted

More details will be added as we get to know him

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.

Pippa - Now in Foster

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

Boo - Reserved


Boo is a delightful 4 year old Parsons Jack Russel. Boo is great with dogs but is not a fan of cats, she is a lovely dog with a brilliant temperament who needs a new home through no fault of her own.

Archie - Under Assessment

Archie is a Lhaso Apso male around 4 years old. So far we don't know an awful lot about him. He is a quiet and nervous boy who will need a quiet child free home. He is not currently available and more details will be added as we have them.

Please note 

We are unable to answer any enquiries about her until fully assessed and advertised as available for adoption

Darcy - Adopted

Darcy is now 9 weeks old and 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. 

Dolly - Adopted

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.

Dolly has now been adopted by her foster home.

Alfie - Adopted

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.

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
