All dogs from Ruff Luck Rescue come fully vaccinated, wormed, de-flead, microchipped and neutered.
A home check is required before you can adopt/foster a dog - once this is carried out and has been approved we will introduce you to the best suited dogs to your circumstances (you will be required to visit our kennels to do this).
Our adoption fee is £200 (puppies £225) and the donation money goes straight back into the rescue to help the other dogs in our care.
If you wish for us to relinquish your dog (re-home) then there are a few steps to take.
Firstly get in touch and find out if we have any kennel space/foster homes free. Once that is confirmed you would need to bring your dog(s) to the kennels for an assessment - if your dog passes the assessment we will agree to take them on and re-home them.
A donation will be required - the amount being dependent on whether your dog is fully vaccinated (proof required) & personal circumstances (please contact us). This donation helps us with their food and kennel bills whilst they are in our care.
To apply to adopt or foster any of our dogs please fill in the form below.

Lola - 8 years - Staffie Cross
Name : Lola
Breed : Staffie Cross
Age : 8 years
Vaccinated: Booked at vets
Microchipped : Yes
Flea/wormed : Yes
Neutered/spayed : Yes
Other dogs : To be an only dog in the home
Cats : no cats please
Kids : Child free home due to nervous nature
Meet Lola here due to a very drastic change in owners personal circumstances. Sadly her previous owner has to return to her own country due to housing issues etc, Lola was with her previous owner all her life so her world has been turned upside down which has unsettled her lots. She has been In a foster home for 1 week now & although initially nervous she’s doing really well now, she goes out for walks & meets people much more comfortable now, she has been good in the home but the only thing she is struggling with is at the moment is when she is left it makes her a little anxious & she will have a bark, it’s no wonder as she has had her life turned upside down. She was good as gold in kennels here when she stayed with us, she went out with lots of different handlers no problem, she can be shy to start with but soon warms to you. She will need a home who are able to spend time with her especially whilst readjusting into a new life as she will be feeling a little confused by all the changes
She can pull a little on lead but not overly strong we all found her manageable here in kennels. She will walk happily in a group of other dogs on lead. We will not home her with children as she can get a little worried at times so adult only home needed
She will not be homed with cats or other dogs within the home
She is still an active girl so will need a home who can give her the exercise she needs. She eats well & is on dry complete food with a wet mix (tinned). She has been fairly good with her toileting in kennels & foster home. She needs a fully secured garden with 6ft fencing. If you think you would be a suitable home for Lola then please follow the question guideat the top of this page so you send us all your info in your email application
Homecheck & adoption donation apply.

Microchipped : Yes
Neutered : Yes
Flea/wormed : Yes
Other dogs : Will be homed as an only dog
Cats : Cat free home needed
Kids : 14 years plus at our discretion upon meet
Meet this stunning boy who is here through no fault of his own, unfortunately he lived with other dogs and they didn’t get on which caused lots of stress within the home and was becoming a huge problem, so before it got out of hand it was decided he needed a new home. Chewie walks fairly well on lead, he will need some further basic training. Although he can be a little timid until he knows you, he is a gentle boy with a lot of love to give. He will need an active home with people who will give him plenty of exercise. He loves his walks and enjoys paddock playtime. He is kennel clean so housetraining won’t be a problem. He is on a diet of complete dry food with a meat mix. We wont home him with cats, he would for sure chase.
A dog free home is also required
He walks fine on lead on group walks. He will require a garden with 6ft secure fencing. He needs someone who has time to put into him and give him the exercise he needs.
We will only consider kids 14 years plus
At the top of this page there is a question guide to help with your email application. Please ensure you give us plenty of info about your circumstances to be considered.

Blue - 3 years - Staffie
PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY
So some of you will remember Blue he went to a home a few months ago but after 4 weeks in the home he bit an adult. I will not go into detail on here I will do so in person if you think you can help us.
So I’m looking for a pet free, child free, calm, understanding, dog savvy foster home/forever home for Blue. We have had him back with us 6 weeks & we have had no incidents at all & we had no incidents as kennels first time round either. However, he has bitten so we need to be sure we get this right. If you think you could help drop me a messsge & I will have a full in-depth conversation with you.
Or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading.
