Dog of



Pets Corner - Kidderminster

A lovely evening spent with the staff at Pets Corner Kidderminster who kindly invited Forest Dog Rescue to their informal coffee evening to allow local animal related businesses to get to know each other. Lovely cakes and cool drinks for us, and for our four legged friends biscuits from Katie's Canine Kitchen and iced treats made by the staff that all the dogs enjoyed on a very warm evening. It was nice to see Hall Green Retired Greyhound Trust there, along with other various people, a most enjoyable evening had by all, and Thank you to Pets Corner for inviting us. 

Lucky 7 Scooter Club

We had another amazing group of people visit us today..the ."LUCKY 7 SCOOTER CLUB"

These lovely people fund raise for various charities and today we were honoured to have been one of them..

Tracey and her colleagues have been collecting food, blankets, towels and toys since last January and came to pass it all over to us today for the dogs in our care.

At least 35 to 40 kind, fun loving people have raised funds totalling £220 of which was used to purchase food etc, plus there was another £135 cash which came from different members plus our new found friends from the Black Star in Stourport (special hug to Alfie and Charlie please guys) thank you all for your kindness and generosity.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks Tracey please pass on to all your incredible and so cheerful colleagues, really amazing troupe of people thank you 

We do try to thank everyone for their kindness and continued support towards FDR and hopefully we don't miss anyone, nothing is taken for granted and we consider this charity to be truly blessed by so many, thank you each and everyone of you

the Month




This little monkey is back on the search for a new home, he was initially rehomed from us in 2014 but was returned this month (May 2016) due to unforeseen change in circumstance due having to sell their family home.

Rolo thinks he is top dog of the world, safe to say he does have a touch of little dog syndrome and thinks every other dog needs to be barked at.

Although he will never be able to be rehomed with another dog, we have began to work with him and his relationship with other dogs. With a firm handler he will walk along side other dogs with no issues, he will also sit next to another dog providing the dog is kept calm and under control (see more pictures on his own page via "Meet the Dogs" page) - he finds it very difficult to contain himself if the dog is  jumping all over the place! 

Saying that he is coming to terms with not being allowed to get away with bad behaviour and is getting there step by step. He will need an owner willing to carry on with his training and ensure he continues to improve. 

His lead work is also something that needs a few finishing touches as he feels the need to run everywhere trying to pull you to go faster, fortunately he is only dinky and you are able to check him back to heel, this needs to be done a fair few times on a walk but he's already started to improve.

He is a real cuddly little boy who loves to be told what a good boy he is, when he wants a cuddle he will sit and put is ears back looking at you with big brown puppy dog eyes and an extremely waggy tail.

Rolo is certainly a character but who couldn't resist his huge radar ears!

No cats and no children under 5.

If you think you can offer Rolo the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on
