We lost our beloved dog in October last year. She was 10 years old and became very I'll very quickly and had to be pts.
We have been talking recently about getting a new dog and would ideally like a rescue. But those we have seen in local rescue centres areoften larger dogs and not suitable to live with children.
We have an 11 and 7 year old so would prefer something smaller and that the 11 year old would be able to eventually walk on his own. Can anyone recommend where to even begin looking? We are not fussed about breed, just one that would fit into our family. Also any advice on the process would be very helpful as well, thank you
Hi What about Manchester dogs home? Please don't get one from Leigh dogs home. It's a money making place which poses as a charity amongst other dubious practices,have a Google. Maybe ask on local Facebook pages for rescue centres. Sorry I've been not much help.
Dogs4Rescue are a brilliant rescue based in Irlam. They have a good variety of dogs as they have rescues from overseas as well as the UK. They have been incredibly supportive to us and encourage trials to ensure your family and the dog are right for each other, and they offer lifetime backup and advice. They are also kennel free - the dogs live with the ladies who run the rescue. They have a very active Facebook page, please look them up.
