Adopt a Dog

We prioritise dogs and puppies who have been rescued by RSPCA inspectors from often appalling conditions, where their lives are in danger from neglect or physical assault. These are the rescued dogs and puppies in RSPCA branch care that are looking for caring forever homes. To see more information and photos (if available) please just click on the “.. continue reading” link which will take you to each dog or puppy’s full information and photos then by clicking on their thumbnail photos you will be able to view larger images.

Can you offer a permanent or foster home to any branch dogs? Please see the contact details on the right for more info or to arrange a meeting.

VISIT OUR ADOPTION POLICY PAGE AT http://www.rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk/about-the-branch/our-policies

We ask for an adoption fee of £120 for an adult dog or £150 for a puppy under 6 months of age (cash please) to offset some of the costs we incur in caring for and treating the dogs in our care. Please contact us for terms when adopting an elderly dog. When compared with the initial expense of essential welfare costs when obtaining a “free” dog or puppy from the free ads or a neighbour, such as neutering, vaccinations and flea and worming treatment the estimated cost of which is now well over £300 by adopting one of our animals you are saving money and…….more importantly a life.

An excellent site for people who would like adopt but worry about coping with a rescued dog for the first time is http://www.animalsinmind.org.uk/

Once you have chosen your dog and the day arrives to take him/her home in your car it’s really important to comply with the law and ENSURE S/HE IS SECURED SAFELY http://www.rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/Transportingdogsincars-1.pdf

chancewilsmlow2 Chance is approx 2 year old Saluki.  He needs someone who understands his breed.  He loves nothing more than having a charge around.  We do not know what Chance is like with small furries so to be on the safe side we are saying no cats.  He is very affectionate when you can get him to stay still

For further information on Chance please ring 07811404346

Tucker

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
tucker Tucker is a lovely, friendly Rottweiler cross and at just over 12 months old, still very much a puppy.  Despite already weighing 45 kg he probably still has some growing to do!

Tucker loves people and likes to give kisses.  He gets on well with other dogs, although he can be a bit too eager to play and when you are as big a Tucker it can be a bit unnerving for some little dogs.

We have been asked to find him a loving home due to a change in his previous owners’ circumstances and increased working hours, which mean that he is being left to his own devices for far too many hours.  Tucker will need taking to training classes and a family with extra large dog experience and where there is someone at home most of the time.

We are looking for an adult only family or one with older children over 10 years of age, simply due to his size and bouncy nature as he could easily knock younger ones over.

If you love big, soppy, dogs and would like to meet him with a view to adoption please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Ben

bencolliecross This is Ben, a sheep dog cross, he is the happiest dog ever!  He loves meeting everyone and everything.

What’s great and not so great about Ben.

Ben is still very much a big, daft, clumsy pup so probably not suitable for families with young children.

He has boundless energy and is super clever, he only needs to be shown things once so would make a brilliant fly ball, agility dog.

Ben needs a very active home.  Although he hasn’t shown any aggression towards cats, he does think they would be great fun to chase.

Ben’s perfect family would be outdoor, active people with time and patience to teach him how to control his energy. ( training classes may be useful )

Ben has been left to grow up without stimulation, meaning he does have some silly bad habits such as jumping up.

We wouldn’t advise him going to a home where he will he left for long periods of time, he needs someone to be home most the time with him, or access to doggy daycare.

Ben just needs to learn it’s time to grow up!

In exchange for your time and patience, Ben will reward you with endless love and loyalty.

He is by far the happiest dog ever!

poppystaffy3 Poppy is a 2 year old Staffy who is full of life and has to do everything at 100mph.   She loves the water and is more than happy to go swimming.   She does need someone who understands her breed as she is quite powerful and can be a very willfull young lady.   Poppy loves people but does need to be introduced to other dogs slowly because of her boisterous nature she just dives in, but loves people and would sit on someones knee for hours.

Ray

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
raystaffy2 We have let Ray’s current owner tell you all about him and why he is looking for a new home.

Ray is currently in a foster home and living with 3 other dogs.  He gets on with them all really well, he has really settled in.

Ray is around 4-5 years old and is probably a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross. He weights around 19.5Kg and is an active healthy dog who is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date with vaccinations. He enjoys the company of other dogs, chasing balls and long walks.  He is loving and positively enjoys being with humans. He is also good with children of all ages and would make a good family pet. Ray has suffered from separation anxiety but whilst he has been in his foster home he is doing really well and is not bothered by his human friends going out.
