Breed Rescue Stand

Good dog rescue organisations will always strive to match each applicant with an appropriate dog. They know if a particular dog likes children, can get along with other pets, needs lots of exercise, plays rough, is easy to train, is afraid of adults, jumps fences and so on.

They cannot make a good match if they don’t ask questions about the type of home the adopter will provide. So if you're looking to adopt a breed rescue dog, be prepared to answer a wide range of questions to make sure you're ready for this commitment:



Crufts was held on 9-12 March 2017 with over 162,000 people attending the event.

Over the four days of Crufts, 16 rescues joined us on the stand to promote their breed and the hard work that they do – and brought along some of the wonderful dogs that they care for. We would like to convey our thanks to the following rescue organisations: all the organisations that took part.
