Dogs of


Meet Ozzy! CONAN

Lurcher DOG

Approx 1-2 Years

Meet the adorable Conan who came in as stray, covered in mange, petrified and dreadfully thin. He has come on in leaps and bounds over the short time he has been with us - he has really started to come out of his shell, loves people, great with other dogs although can get excitable and has started to gain weight. Good on the lead, loves to bomb around the playpen and adores cuddles! Struggling in Kennels and tends to put off going back to his kennel as much as he can. Would be better with older children and not cat tested.

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

Mark Collins

FDR would like to pass on their thanks to Mark Collins for kindly raising £120 on behalf of Forest Dog Rescue by holding a raffle. Wendy (trustee) had the pleasure of meeting Mark and receiving a cheque last Thursday evening.

Mark is one of the Trainers at Westglen Puppy & Dog Training who hold classes on a Thursday evening at St. Mary's Church in Kidderminster. One of our very own dogs (Sonny who was adopted by Stephen Read) has proved to be outstanding pupil too, well done everyone.

Lurcher - DOG

Approx 3 Years

Rollo is a lovely boy who is being re-homed due to his owner's ill health . Rollo's owner described him as a very friendly and loving boy who loves cuddles! He can get quite excitable so he would need an active family, as he loves his long walks. Rollo is good on the lead and would need to stay on a lead as he has a tendency to chase moving creatures so no cats or furry creatures in the home. We have walked him around with our other dogs and he has been really good, just the odd bark at some but when corrected he does behave. He is really not doing well in kennels as he has spent his life in a home environment so we need to try to get him out as soon as possible. Great character!. 

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