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.

Bill - 4 years - Jack Russell/Rottweiler cross

Name : Bill
Age : 4 years old
Breed : Jack Russell/Rottweiler Cross (medium size not small size)
Vaccinated: Will be ready for homing
Microchipped: Yes
Neutered: Booked to be done this week
Flea/wormed : Yes
Cats : NO NO NO
Other dogs : No, needs to be homed as an only dog
Children : Sensible 10 years plus at our discretion upon meet

Meet Bill, an odd little mix but incredibly cute looking.
He his here due to owner's eviction and they were not in a position to take care of him any longer.  Bill is lovely with people and really enjoys his walks in the woods.  Exercise is important when considering adoption as he’s got lots of energy.  He will bark at other dogs on a walk but it’s completely controllable on lead, we are told if he gets to know dogs he can be ok but at this point I’m not prepared to place him in a multi dog home he will need to be an only dog.  Bill is fairly kennel clean but we can not guarantee that he won’t have accidents in a home whilst adjusting.  We do not know how his recall is as he is on lead when we’re walking him here so that would need to be worked on in his new home.  We will not home with cats or small furries
Children over 10 years as he has lived with children.  He has a happy, friendly, loving nature and will make someone a lovely companion.  

Benny 8 months - Spaniel/Jack Russell cross

Name : Benny
Breed : Spaniel/Jack Russell cross
Age : 8 months
Vaccinated : Yes
Microchipped : Yes
Flea/wormed : Yes
Neutered : Will be upon homing booked at vets this week
Cats : No
Kids : Dog savvy kids 6 years plus
Other dogs : Yes with right introduction

Meet our gorgeous Benny still a baby at 8 months old, he finds himself in rescue due to owner circumstances.
He is happy, super friendly and loving.  Benny is a little live wire who will need a very active home with regular exercise.  Fairly good on lead, enjoys the great outdoors
See no reason why he can’t intergrate into a home with another dog very playful here.  Enjoys company of children but would be at our discretion upon a meeting
Would hugely benefit from training classes.
Plenty of exercise is a must for this boy!
House training May need a little patience for a short while till he gets back into a routine

Marley - 11-12 years - Cross Breed

In Foster

We have cared for Marley on & off long term in kennels now for approximately 8+ years due to her owner having health issues unfortunately we havn't been able to assist getting Marley into a home because legalities wouldn’t allow this.  But finally we are thrilled that she has been signed over to Ruff Luck Rescue and now our aim is to get her some home comforts for the final months/years of her life.
Marley is approximately between 11 to 12 years old (to our calculations) she is happy, friendly, still fairly active , loves humans.   In fact she has a little regular fan club here at kennels! She’s ok on walks with other dogs, in past she has lived with a cat but hasn’t been around one for a while.  Marleye does have some medical issues which I’d happily discuss with the right person who would give her a chance.  Ideally I’d love a forever home but given her age and medical history I’m happy to appeal for a long term foster home where we will step in as a rescue to take care of her future vet costs just to make sure she gets what she deserves for the rest of her days (we will be setting up a fundraiser over the coming days to help with her costs for those who would like to donate).  

So what would we like for Marley in regards to a foster/forever home-

1. Someone who would be committed to care for an older dog for the rest of her days (I do not want her unsettled again this has to be her last stop )
2. She still needs and enjoys regular exercise so a home needs to be able to offer this
3. Someone with transport to get her to our vet should she need it
4. Someone who isn’t out all day long - she deserves TLC and company
5. No children under the age of 14
6. We may consider another dog depending on a meet to see how they got on but preferably an only dog home is favourable
7. Someone who is prepared for toilet accidents while she settles back into a home life 
8. Someone with a huge heart and a love of older dogs who can give her what she so deserves for the rest of her days


Charlie (8 years) & Hetty (6 years) - Shih Tzu


Please meet Charlie (on left) who is 8 years old and Hetty (on right) who is 6 years old.  Unfortunately, they find themselves in rescue after their owners sadly passed away.

They have been in foster care for a few weeks and have settle in well with the other resident dogs.

They are both very friendly happy dogs for have a character.  Hetty is a little girl who likes to keep her eye on what’s going on and keep things in check, where Charlie is laid back and chilled.  They are a bonded pair and so we are looking for a home together. 

If interested in finding out more about Hetty and Charlie, then please drop us an email to info@aldridgerescue.co.uk or traceygriffin025@gmail.com giving us full information on your home and lifestyle and contact details.

Poppy - 8 years - Jack Russell/Corgi cross



Meet our super little JR x corgi, Poppy who is a very happy and affectionate little girl.   Poppy is spayed, vaccinated and chipped and is 8 yrs. old, so a mature girl who likes the quiet life.

Poppy in her original home didn’t really get walked but since being in rescue this has changed, and she loves her daily walks, checking out the environment.  She is excellent on the lead and happy trots at your side. 

Although she has lived with another dog, we have found that if they are bouncy around her, she will tell them off and so we feel best suited to be the only pet where she can get all the attention.  Oh, and does she love the attention, she loves the companionship of her humans and to potter around the house and garden checking out what you are doing. 

In the car Poppy feels that she needs to assist in the driving and so Poppy does need to be secure in a crate when travelling.  She can riddle out of the seatbelt harness.   

Poppy has not had much experience of being around children and can find them quite scary, so we will not home her with children.  She is ok with visiting ones, but they do need to be respectful to her and not be running around her – say hello and give her space.  

If interested in finding out more about Poppy then please drop us an email to info@aldridgerescue.co.uk or traceygriffin025@gmail.com giving us full information on your home and lifestyle and we can then come back to you
