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

nigelchow1 Nigel is a 2 year old Chihuahua and has come into our care through no fault of his own.  He is very affectionate.  Would suit someone who enjoys to walk, and has plenty of time to spend with him,  we think he would really enjoy the company of another dog as he has come from a home where there were other Chihuahua

dav Oscar is approx  8 years old.  This older gentleman is currently in a foster home where his fosterers are delighted with him.   Now he is older he enjoys doing things a bit slower than he used to, but don’t get me wrong he is still enjoying doing those things like going for a dip in the lake.

Kaden – Urgent Plea

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
kaden7 We are making an urgent plea for a foster placement or forever home for Kaden.  He is a 3 year old lurcher who is finding life in kennels unbearable.  As a result he is becoming more and more unhappy and scared the longer he’s behind bars.  His carers are lovely but they can’t be there for this lovely boy all the time so we would love to hear from a family willing to take him as a fostered dog for while until he finds a forever new home.  Ideally his foster family would be around most of the time and perhaps have another medium to large dog who will befriend him.   An adult only home or one with children over 10 and where there are no cats or other small furries is needed.

Poor Kaden came into our care in April this year.  He was extremely thin at the beginning of his stay with us as can be seen from his photos.  He has now put on weight and is looking very handsome.

“The House Lurcher” is a book we can recommend for those who are interested in adopting a lurcher, perhaps for the first time.

Pepper – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off

pepperoldham7 Pepper is a 6 year old Mastiff cross who, came to us due to her owner’s change of circumstances.  She has been in branch care for quite a while now but here she is enjoying her head being tickled.

She is very loving when she gets to know you she just needs a few minutes when she meets someone new.

Pepper is turning into a beautiful young lady who is learning to ignore other dogs and her favourite thing is splashing in the water, it is lovely to watch her enjoying herself. She would benefit from an owner who knows Mastiff types and a home with no small children as she does get rather giddy sometimes

Nancy

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
nancy-hd2 Nancy is a 5 year old Lurcher who has come into our care through no fault of her own.   She has had several litters previously and is now ready to become a much loved family dog.   She will need time and patience as she is still very submissive and hand shy but she is improving as time goes by.

Nancy is currently in foster care where she is learning to live in a house and her fosterer says that she has discovered that sofa lounging is the best thing ever.    She is a bit of an escape artist so a well fenced garden is needed, although this needn’t be all around a very large garden, just the area near your kitchen door so that she can be let out without worries.

She is good with people but is still quite shy and submissive when approaching new humans.   So, a family with children over 11 is preferred and one with a friendly established dog if possible.

Nancy is good with other dogs but it’s important to be aware that in her previous life she was encouraged to chase so is not cat safe.   A home which is cat and small furry free is essential.

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 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 can suffer from separation anxiety but with the right environment and some work he is capable of spending periods alone. He is available for rehoming following the death of his main owner.  

In September 2015 my wife and I came across Ray at the Cheshire Dogs Home and we decided to offer him a home. At that time my wife was looking for a replacement for our previous dog who had died at the age of 14+ in 2012. She also suffered from some serious back problems which meant that she wanted to have a good reason to get up and about and Ray certainly provided that. Unfortunately in early 2016 she was diagnosed with bladder cancer and she died in March this year, since the death of my wife Ray has suffered with separation anxiety so he is now desperate to enjoy that commitment he once had with someone new”.

Thomas – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
thomasej7 Thomas is approximately 6 years old and was originally from another rescue where he was found feral and in an emaciated state.

This is what his owner has to say about him. “He was in their kennels down south for a long time with no interest in him, so it was suggested that he be moved up to Manchester. That was where I found him. When he came here he was very scared but first night followed me into the bedroom an never looked back. He gradually got used to people. Now he loves everybody . The other rescue thought he had been homeless for two or thee years. Thomas is a lovely, gentle dog, very obedient, very clean. He eats dried food, grazing a bit at a time. When I’m out, he sleeps in a cage which is kept open during the day and which he goes in and out of. It will break my heart to lose him, but I have no alternative. Whoever he goes to will be lucky to get him.”

Unfortunately his owner can no longer keep him as he has to go into sheltered accommodation.  Thomas does bark a lot when he sees another dog.

Jasper – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
jasper-jrt-2 Jasper, a slightly older gentleman of 13, seeks soft comfy sofa to enjoy retirement on and human slaves to wait on him hand and foot while he watches daytime television.

Humans must be able to endure loud snoring and grumpy behaviour.  Due to lack of teeth (only 3 remaining) the human must be willing to provide soft food, ideal hand delivered.

In exchange for these services you will will be repaid with excellent house manners, impeccable lead behaviour and the odd grunt of thanks.

Please contact the branch for our elderly pet adoption scheme’s terms and conditions.

Teddy – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
teddylurcher1 Teddy is an 18 month old rough coated lurcher.  He has come into our care due to no fault of his own. Teddy has kind eyes and a beautiful nature, he loves to follow you around and will come when called and even puts his head into his collar to be put on.

He needs a family who love to walk, who have someone at home most of the time, perhaps have another friendly dog already and have children over 8 as he is quite a bouncy boy. But, they mustn’t have cats or other small furries due to Teddy’s background when he was encouraged to chase them.

Khaleesi – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
khaleesi-3 Khaleesi, is a 20 month old Alaskan Malamute cross, as beautiful as her “Game of Thrones” namesake, who came to the branch heavily pregnant.  She gave birth later that evening to 4 beautiful puppies who have all gone to their new homes now and so Khaleesi is looking for a forever family of her own.

She came from the same unsuitable home with the other mums and we think that this  may have been a first time litter.  Luckily for Khaleesi she and her puppies received all the care they needed from day one.

We are looking for home, with no cats or other small furries, where she will be the only much loved companion and where there is someone at home most of the time.  She is the most needy of the adults as she hasn’t experienced a loving home in her short life.

An adult only family is needed for Khaleesi, or one with children over 10 years of age, simply due to her size, as she could easily knock or pull a smaller child over is essential as is one with experience of her breed or other large independent dogs.

 

Please read up about the breed’s needs and care before contacting the branch to express your interest in meeting her.
