Sheffield Dog Rescue is run by a small army of volunteers with one aim, to help dogs in need. Many of our dogs come to us via North East Derbyshire Dog Wardens and we also receive numerous calls from members of the public asking for help to rehome their pet dogs. We try to help as many dogs as we can, but funding and kennel space makes this a difficult task. We operate a no kill policy and none of our dogs are destroyed, unless advised to do so by our vet for health reasons.
All our rescued dogs receive initial vaccinations, are microchipped, deflead and dewormed. The Sheffield Dog Rescue also cover the cost of spaying / neutering of each dog.
All new owners receive one full year’s FREE membership to Sheffield Dog Rescue and we give a full back-up service to new owners.
Our kennels are located at Mosborough in Sheffield, where the dogs can be viewed by appointment. Voluntary dog walkers are welcomed, as the dogs need to be exercised and socialised as much as possible.
We rely totally on donations from the general public and income from our charity shop in Chesterfield, which is run voluntarily. The shop has a variety of new and second hands good for sale.
Blue is a lurcher who came to us via the dog wardens. He is approximately four years old.
During his time in rescue he has been very affectionate towards the people who look after him, he loves a cuddle. He travels well in a car and enjoys his walks.
Unfortunately , during a period of time when not in our care , Blue was involved in an incident which we will discuss in detail with a potential adopter.
He was returned to rescue where he has been assessed by a qualified dog trainer. The report on Blue states that the he poses no threat to people. However , he has a very high prey drive and must always wear a muzzle and be kept on a lead when out.
Most of the time Blue is calm , quiet and obedient but does need training around other dogs .
We will be happy to cover the cost of the training sessions in order to place Blue into the correct home environment.
Blue needs a patient , calm owner who is willing to put some work into helping this beautiful boy have the happy home life he deserves .
