Marley is a lovely girl with heaps of personality. Marley loves to cuddle and play with her toys.

Marley is:

  • Crate trained. Marley sleeps in her crate at night.

  • Fully house trained.

  • Very well behaved on the lead.

  • Friendly with other dogs.

Marley can live with:​

  • ​Another calm dog

  • Cats

  • Older dog savvy children

Marley has become very settled in her foster home and so it is essential that she gets to meet her new owners a few times before she makes the move. Marley is currently being fostered in the LE10 area.

If you are interested in Marley, you will need to complete a home check and you must be able to commit to 1-2 meets with Marley before adoption.

Stella is originally from Spain and was brought to the UK by another rescue 18 months ago. She is around 2 years old and spayed.

Because of Stella's anxiety she developed some reactivity issues in the home. We have spent the past 3 weeks building her confidence up with new people, dogs and sounds in kennels and now she is ready for the next step of her journey. RDR will provide full guidance and support.

Stella needs a home with...

  • No children or cats

  • A secure garden/yard area with minimum 6 ft fencing

  • Someone who is patient and willing to put time into Stella, she is extremely affectionate and loves cuddles on the sofa but she is also as fit as a fiddle and needs plenty of stimulation

  • Stella needs a quiet and calm household

  • Stella gets along with most dogs and enjoys to play and so meets with dogs are welcome.

Because Stella can be quite a nervous girl she will need a few meets before she will feel comfortable going to her foster home; and so applicants must be close to the BB18 area or willing to travel.

Stella is available for a foster to adopt contract.


Our new girl Pippa came into rescue as an emergency handover so she had to go straight into kennels. However, due to her past, Pippa has developed obsessive behaviours around lights and shadows to relieve her frustrations and kennels really isn't the best place to be able to rehabilitate her. We are in desperate need of a foster home for her. We will also accept a foster home with view to adopt. Pippa needs a home that;

  • Has people at home most of the day.

  • Is in the North West UK.

  • Has owners committed to her training/rehabilitation (Full support will be given).

  • Can offer Pippa plenty of physical and mental stimulation.

  • Has no young resident children (may possibly consider dog savvy children aged 14+).

Pippa is good with other dogs and has lived with a cat. Due to Pippa's anxious energy, any resident dog will have to be secure in their own behaviours ie not anxious themselves or reactive. Pippa is not yet spayed so cannot be rehomed where there is an entire male dog. Experience with deaf dogs is preferable but not essential.


Our handsome boy Scooby has done amazing with his rehabilitation. He is a completely different dog to the one who arrived with us a couple of months ago. This said, his training will need to be continued with his potential new owners to prevent him reverting back to his old ways.

Scooby was originally adopted from Hungary but started to become reactive to people, dogs and vehicles and his owners were struggling to manage him. Lucy has worked wonders with this boy in kennels and he is now ready for the next stage of his journey. He is around 4 years old and is neutered.

We are open to both foster only offers and foster with view to adopt. We would love to find this boy his forever home

Scooby needs owners/fosterers who;

  • Will continue with his training. Full support and advice available. Scooby LOVES to learn!

  • Live close to the BB18 area or are willing to travel for regular meets.

  • Have no pets or children.

Homechecks apply. Please get in touch for more information.


Thinking about adopting a dog through Roaming Dogs Rescue? Not sure what the process entails? Let’s give you the run through!

Roaming Dogs Rescue will start the process off by conducting a home check. You will be required to fill out a home check application form, which will then be processed by the RDR admin team. Once your home check has been allocated to one of our home checkers you will receive a phone call, with any follow up questions and maybe some additional questions to ensure RDR has all the information it needs to further process your application. An RDR home checker will arrange to visit your home, where we will check that all the information we have is correct and assess your property and home lifestyle (please note; this is only to ensure that we can match the right dog to your family).

Upon successfully completing your home check, the RDR team will then get to work behind the scenes, ensuring the dog you have chosen is the best fit. If RDR has another dog that will be a better match for you, the team will discuss meeting that dog instead. Roaming Dogs Rescue does not operate on a first come first served basis. RDR’s goal is to put the right dog in the right home at the right time. 

What happens when you get matched with an RDR dog?

When the team finds the dog who is the best fit for your home, you will be contacted to arrange a meet with the dog. This is done, so you can begin to bond with the dog before they arrive at your home. This also helps when there is another dog in the household, and allows the dogs to meet on neutral ground. By meeting the dog before they go home with you, all parties can be confident if the dog is the right dog for you. It may require more than one meeting with the dog to ensure that both you and the dog are happy with each other.

The next step is the best one, its now time to welcome home your new rescue dog!

Once the dog has been adopted, a member of the RDR team will be in touch after approximately 2 weeks to arrange a follow up meet. This is carried out to ensure all RDR dogs have gone to the correct home, any issues can be caught early and to ensure both you and the dog are settling in to your new life together.

Roaming Dogs Rescue offer lifetime support to all their adopted dogs. This includes behavioural advice and support, full rescue back up and in the event a dog is adopted out to you who has a lifetime illness, support with the veterinary treatments may be offered at RDR’s discretion.

Roaming Dog Rescue has an adoption fee of £250-£300.
