Our Dogs


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 £175 and there is a 1 week home trial - 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.

Meet our gorgeous boy Milson who is looking for a new family
He came to us due to change in his previous owners circumstances
He has lived with children so therefore would consider a family with children age 8 years & over
We would consider to live with another dog depending on introductions a female would be preferable
He is a typical young bouncy/ lively staffie who does still need further training but he has a lovely happy / friendly nature
He’s fairly good on lead apart from a little eagerness to get out & about once your walking he soon settles & walks nicely
He will need an active home who can give him plenty of exercise
He was crate trained in his previous home
He will need a garden we will not accept any applications from those that live in flats/apartments etc he needs outside space
He was left no more than 4 hours in his previous home so this would be ideally what we would be looking for again because we know he can cope with that length of time

If you think Milson might suit your family/home then you will find a guide of questions above that will help you with your email application : email thedogtrustees@gmail.com
We will only respond to applicants who give us all the info requested.

Meet Max & Patch who we are homing as a pair they are here through sad reluctant circumstances as their daddy is very ill & now dependant of carers so can no longer cope with the boys
They will need a home that’s fairly dog savvy can be shy till they get to know you & will need time to settled & adjust in a home without someone fussing over them till they are used to new surroundings.  We will not home with children as they have never lived with them & I think it would be to much
