Sat/Sun 12/13th August
Far Forest Countryside Show 

Thank you to all who made this fun packed week end possible, we know it takes an awful lot of planning, dedication and sleepless nights to make these kind of events come together.

On behalf of many may we congratulate you on a great job done, what an amazing week end!
So many pictures to post that clearly speak for themselves, well done.

Many thanks to Mary Blount, Becky, Tony and all members of their hard working team for not only one, but 2 incredible Fun Dog Shows, they bought so much pleasure to so many.
Thank you also for all you have done past and present on behalf of Forest Dog Rescue, your kindness and dedication will always be remembered and greatly appreciated and we wish you great success in your future ventures ahead of you. Enjoy and good luck 

Many thanks also to our fabulous volunteers who have joined us again today, we know your time is valuable but you still choose to stand by our side, thank you all so much 

It was great to see the support given to many charities and businesses over the weekend, tremendous outcome, thank you once again.

And finally...thank you Stephen for your time spent today with the gorgeous Kenco!

Not sure who was having the most fun but what a team you both made. 

The impact of Kenco spending time out from the kennels and on the search for his forever family was so endearing, he has stolen so many hearts by just being who he is.

It's hard for any dog to show their true self in kennels but boy did this lad shine today...good luck Kenco and thank you Stephen, let's hope your determination and kindness has helped this lad finally find the family he longs for, well done 

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


Beautiful Bart came to us from another rescue as a stray so sadly we have no history on him.
Since he has been here he has proven to be a little bit of a live wire!!

He loves nothing more than a good run around in the playpen, he is full of energy, loves to chase balls but doesn't always bring them back however he always comes back for a cuddle.

His lead work when he came in was appalling, we don't think he had ever been on a lead before. We are working very hard on this and he is improving but it's slow progress. We have tried various headcollars but he hates them with a passion, however a harness and slip lead seem to be best suited to him.

Bart is very affectionate when he is off lead in the playpen and in his kennel but on lead it isn't always easy to get his attention as he is so busy taking in the world around him so training is a bit of an uphill struggle especially when there are other dogs around. He is fantastic with Spot and they get on like a house on fire however other dogs are there to be barked at unfortunately. We are not sure what he would do, whether he wants to play or not however we are currently working on him being calm and quiet and ignoring other dogs which is a work in progress. Due to tis reason he would need to be the only dog in the home and futher socialisation would be highly recommended.

Bart will benefit from an experienced dog owner as he will need further training, we feel he might be best suited to an active home with older children who can keep him busy and give him lots to do.

Not cat tested , no children under 5 

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

Thank you!
