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.

Beau - 12 months - Pointer/Doberman Cross

Age : Born 21/9/18
Breed : Doberman x pointer
Vaccinated: Will be up to date prior to homing
Microchipped : Yes
Flea/ wormed: Yes
Neutered: Will be prior to homing
Cats : Can not live with cats
Dogs : still introducing at the moment will update further
Kids : We will only home to families with kids 10/12 years & over if are dog savvy as he’s a big bouncy lad

Beau is a happy chap full of puppiness & bounce.  I suspect his lead training hasn’t been very consistent as he is a real strong puller at the moment, which with time, commitment & training can easily be sorted.  We are still continuing with assessment at the moment & will update ASAP.  He will need a family/owner willing to commit to training him further & an active dog savvy home.  He is on the larger leggy side & very playful & puppy like still.  We haven't seen any concerns around people he is very happy & friendly.  We are going to interact him with other dogs a little more over the weekend & update more in the coming days

Cooper - 12 months - Cross Breed

Vaccinated: Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Flea/wormed: Yes
Neutered : Yes
Cats : Cat free home needed
Other dogs : with right introductions yes possibly
Kids : has lived with kids so probably 6 years plus at our discretion

Cooper is a stunning boy with a pair of cracking ears 😁
He is a gentle boy but can bit a little shy till he gets to know you and is aware of his surroundings.  He hasn’t got a bad bone in his body, he just wants to be friends once her over comes his shyness.  Cooper is fairly good on lead and enjoys his walks, he loves his food and always leaves an empty bowl.  He is here due to a drastic change in his previous owners circumstances, he is still young enough to adjust to a new home life.  Cooper will require an owner who has time to give him plenty of exercise as he is still very young and active.

Teddy - 7.5 months - Yorkie

On Home Trial

Name : Teddy
Breed : Yorkie
Age : Approx 7.5 months
Vaccinated: Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Flea/wormed : Yes
Neutered: Yes
Cats : May play chase but will test further
Other dogs : With correct introduction yes
Kids : At our discretion if we feel happy 6 years plus

Meet teddy here through unfortunate circumstances and no fault of his own.  He is a little bundle of sweetness and fun, however he WILL need further house training, he is improving but will for sure have accidents and a potential owner will need to work with this.  He is brill with other dogs, in foster with 2 collies so I know for sure he is good.  He has in past lived with a child and is loving and fine however I will only home to families with children if I feel the children are suitable upon an initial meet.  He does like his walks however in new surroundings he does need some gentle reassurance so this also needs to be considered.  I will only place in a home I feel has time for him and where he won’t be left for long periods of time, he is full of beans and not a dog for someone with limited mobility or an older person (not discriminating, I’m doing what’s right for him )

If your keen to be considered then please send your very detailed email to thedogtrustees@gmail.com
