Dogs Currently In Foster

Scooby rdr 1.jpg



Age : 3. Originally from : HUNGARY. Now living in : BARNOLDSWICK, NW UK. Must have : PATIENCE, COMMITMENT, FORGIVENESS, LOVE. Must not have : CHILDREN, OTHER DOGS, SMALL FURRIES, VALUE FOR PERSONAL SPACE ON SOFA. My rescuers take great care of me in kennels but I am desperate for a home and a human to call my own My past has made me a little insecure so I take time to learn to trust new people and I sometimes make mistakes... I just need someone who will forgive me and guide me back on the right path. I'm very active and I LOVE to learn! I know lots of tricks and would like to learn more .

Due to my anxieties, I would like to find a companion in North West UK, preferably within a 1 hours radius of BB18 so we can have a few dates before committing to anything serious.

Status: Under Assessment

Skye is still undergoing her assessment period in her foster home.

Stella was originally adopted from Spain by her previous owners however she has struggled to adapt to home life and has started to display anxiety and reactivity. Stella will sometimes direct her anxieties through aggression and has bitten a few of the family members. Her family have done the right thing in handing her over to us as Stella needs full rehabilitation to overcome her issues. We don't believe Stella is an aggressive dog, we believe that she is misunderstood, confused and frustrated.

Stella will spend the start of her rehab in kennels where she can decompress away from a busy household. Lucy will work with Stella from kennels until she is ready to be placed in a foster home.

Isn't she absolutely beautiful

Rico is a 7 month old American Bulldog that has joined the RDR family today due to no fault of his own.

This pup is an absolute treasure! He is a little underweight due to a recent stomach illness which he has now fully recovered from so we will soon see some condition back on him. Other than that, he is very happy and healthy! He is going to grow to be a very big boy!

Rico has gone into one of our trusted foster homes for his assessment period so is currently not available for adoption.

Become A Foster Carer

Roaming Dogs Rescue does not have a kennel base, meaning we are always on the look out for foster homes so we can help as many dogs as possible. We do sometimes have to resort to securing a boarding kennel space, which is charged by the day and can be very expensive.


Could you offer a patient, loving foster home to a dog awaiting adoption? Complete the form below and a member of the RDR team will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

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 successful completion of your home check, you will be placed on the foster list, and you will be contacted when a dog is needed to be placed in your care. RDR will contact you with the details of the dogs needing a foster space and discuss with you which one would be the best fit for you.  

Roaming Dogs Rescue cover all costs incurred by the dog. All veterinary costs, flea and worming treatments and food are all covered by RDR. You will be given the full support of the RDR team, day or night for anything you are having trouble with.

Fostering is hard as you get attached, but knowing you have healed that dog and helped them on their journey makes it worth while!

Fostering for RDR has been the hardest but most rewarding thing i have done so far. Helping a dog in need and seeing them thrive in your care is the best feeling in the world.
