Oakley deserves a chance at happiness, he was abandoned for a long time and he was found looking like a skeleton – poor boy. Now he is a happy and fit! He’s a very well balanced, loving, playful and friendly boy.
Highly social with people and dogs, a real tail wagger!
He is a medium sized boy and he also likes cats, as you can see by the photo we have on his cat test day.
We want a lovely family with another friendly, youngish dog for company for him.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
