CARE Dog Rescue have new dogs coming in daily.  There are all types, shapes and looks.  We do not get many small dogs, but from time to time small dogs do come along.  So you never know,  your ideal companion may be with us now and looking for a home.

We rehome most of the unclaimed stray dogs  in this area.  We only have a limited time to find a home for these dogs or they may be euthanized by the local authorities.  Therefore if you are even slightly interested in one of these dogs please call us as soon as possible, it just might save a life!

Please phone CARE Dog Rescue on  01493 653955 to discuss the type of dog you want, so that  we can do our best  to match the right dog to you and your family.

Our Dog Pics

Cookie (Was a stray)- Boxer x Staffie x Husky, Female, 4 years old, Had vaccination as a pup but not never boosted, Microchipped, She is very friendly, Loves lots of cuddles, Very Affectionate, Superb with people of all ages, Very gentle, Good Recall, Travels well, She doesn't like cats or female dogs, OK with male dogs, Good with children but best with older children, Happy when visitors arrive and settles after a few minutes, A sweetheart!  Very affectionate!  Gentle around older people, Clean indoors


Poppy (was a stray) - Jack Russell, Female, under 2 years, Very affectionate, Loves a fuss and cuddle.  Now in a foster home and doing very well.  Likes people, may be ok with children but has not been around any so we cannot say,  OK with other dogs.  Very nice girl.

Missy – Cross breed, Female, now 5 months but pictures at 3 months, so a bit bigger but still below a medium size dog, Chipped, Vaccinated, has Pet Passport as she came from Bulgaria,  Very pleasant and friendly dog with humans , cats and dogs, Loves playing, Very happy little dog,  Adventurous but stays within human contact - doesn't trail off or attempt to run away,  Clever , Inquisitive, Barks at unknowns coming onto the property but then stops,  She adores human attention ,especially 'cuddles', a very sweet dog,


Now fostered with a family with 7 children from 2 1/2 up , absolutely great, perfect family dog, Housetrained, Knows sit, Beg, Paw, Leave, Bed, Stay and goes to toilet on command.  She is happier with another young dog.

Toby - Lurcher type, Male, around 4 years old, Neutered, Vaccinated, Chipped, has pet passport, has been in a rescue in Spain for 3 years and has no hope of ever being adopted there.  We don't usually bring dogs in from other countries but this boy touched us so we are looking into bringing him here to find a forever home for him.  He is friendly to people, OK with dogs and a good boy.  He has been in kennels there for so long, we feel he is a special case and deserves a better chance in life.

Toby was found abandoned and placed in kennels while a home was found for him.  3 years passed but  no one showed any interest.   A home  in Spain was eventually found, only for the new owner to have to go back to Denmark after  just one month.   No-one want to look after him and he was placed back into kennels.  Private kennels were found for him  and he is there to this day.  Unfortunately, his luck is running out again.  He will have to leave these private kennels as very soon as they do not keep dogs long term and there is now nowhere for him to go.

Toby is a good boy but he may take a few days to settle in after being moved around and especially after a long and bewildering journey.  He  gets on well with other dogs when introduced properly and simply loves the company of people.  He is 55 cm (less than 2 ft) tall from head to floor and weighs approx 25 kg.  When he has been given some time to settle, Toby will make a loving pet.  Being part of a ‘forever’ family is all he really wants  and, importantly,  not be moved or be discarded ever  again. 

Diesel - Jack Russell x Staffie, Male, 17 months, Living with children of 11 weeks, 17 months, 7, 9,m 11 and 12 years,  so good with children.

Russell - Jack Russell, Male, 1 year old, Wormed and Flea treated, Good with child, Good with the cat, Good with dogs, Can be left, Chases cars and is allergic to fleas, Does not like to share toys, chews or food with another dog but fine with people having these items,  May be a little nervous when first meeting strangers but then is very affectionate,  Loves going for walks, Gets excited when a car goes past and will bark and want to chase it,  Likes to play and run around the garden,  Loves to curl up on your lap and fall asleep

Owner wants a home for Russell where he is the only dog.
