Stanley is a beautiful boy who came to us as a stray. However, we do know his history. Stanley is house-trained and very friendly with people. His old owner's say that Stanley is a loyal and loving dog, he just loves being with people and getting as close to them as possible! He is not good with cats. Stanley is very obedient and knows all his basic commands. We are working to socialise him and he is coming along really well and is walked with other dogs. Can be strong on the lead at times but his lead training is coming along nicely. Great family pet.
If you think you can offer Stanley the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on

Last Sunday FDR were invited to a new event (for us anyway) and what a fabulous day out we had, many thanks to K9 Rescue and all who contributed to an excellent family day out at The Quarry in Shrewsbury, we look forward to joining you again next year.
All at FDR really do consider ourselves to be a very fortunate charity, the kindness just keeps on coming which in turn helps us to continue to help those who can't help themselves.
No end of people show their kindness and support in so many different ways.
The latest is the kindness shown once again by
Tamara and Chris who fostered our lovely boy Seth
they held an Wedding Anniversary Dance to celebrate years of happiness together and then so kindly donated £40 which was raised on their special day plus Chris's mom has sent us £25 too, words fail me... there will never be words to express just how humbled we are at your kindness,
Tamara and Chris and Chris's mom, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts xxx
Many thanks to The Rotary Club in Ludlow, they kindly nominated FDR as one of their chosen Charities to receive £2500 from the successful Ludlow Fun Dog Day!

This is the gorgeous Buster who came into us as a stray however we do have some history. We have been told that he is good with other dogs, shy of cats and has previously lived with children. He is a big friendly boy who loves lots of fuss and attention, we have found that his lead training does need some improvement but is learning quickly so will need a family to continue with his training.
No children under the age of 5 years old.
If you think you can offer Buster the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on
