Latest dogs looking for homes....

Betty – 8 year old female Cross-Breed

Betty is a female medium sized Crossbreed of about 8 years old. After being found dodging cars in Romania and, subsequently living in a pen in a field, Orbetica, renamed Betty by her fosterer, finally came to the UK a week ago (mid March). Betty is a fantastic dog, who has taken to the comforts of home life like a duck to water!

She is fully house-trained and gets on really well with the three large female dogs that she is sharing her home with. She loves people and, as one of the photos shows, likes to snuggle on the sofa with her foster dad. She travels well in the car, and she can be lifted in and out with no problems at all. She is the size of a small Collie.

Betty seems to have a little sight in one eye. She gets around happily in the house and garden and is loving her walks. She is perfect on the lead – striding along (but not pulling) with her tail up, taking everything in. Betty can live as an only dog, but she would love to have a quiet companion who is going to interact with her quietly, and not jump all over her!

Betty won’t be rehomed where there are cats. She hasn’t been cat tested, and, like most street dogs, may view cats as prey. Her rescuer told us that she is a little food aggressive, but so far all she has done is a very small growl at one of the other dogs in her foster home, and nothing more. Betty would make a good first-time dog. She needs someone who is at home most of the time as she enjoys human company. If you are interested in her, you can speak to her fosterer and visit her if you are close enough.

We would do a home visit and there is a donation of £220, as with all our dogs. We don’t rehome where there are children under 10 years old.


Jack Sparrow – 7 year old male Yorkshire Terrier

Please meet Captain Jack Sparrow, or Max as he is more commonly known! Max is a Yorkshire Terrier of 7 years old, he came to us when his owner had personal problems which made her unable to care for him. He is shy at first and will hide away but settle in a couple of days. He is quite the regal gent, he walks beautifully on the lead and is house trained, most of the day he spends snoozing on the sofa however he loves his food and walks!

Max is a gentle little soul, he is a darling with not a bad bone in his body. He loves other dogs but would prefer to be the only one in the home, Being older its only fair he should have a person or persons to himself!. He is not destructive at all and is quite content being left for short periods. He is a very undemanding and lazy boy, Would suit an older person or couple.

This lovely old chap would make a fantastic addition to any family as he is really laid back and undemanding, but equally a lovely cuddly loyal company. Max would like an adult only home as he is unsure of children. Max cannot live with cats as when he was younger he lost his eye due to a cat so is scared of them. Max is castrated, fully vaccinated and chipped. He is flea and wormed. Could you give this beautiful boy the retirement home he deserves?


Willow – 16 month old female Whippet Cross

Willow is a 16 month old female Whippet cross. She is house trained, crate trained and non destructive. She loves playing tug and fetch and is a lap dog who loves nothing more than snuggling up with you. She is currently living with 5 cats but if she is going to be rehomed with a cat it would need to be dog savvy as she can be a bit playful around them.

She has never lived with or been around small children so i think its best she is rehomed with children over 11 years. She isnt keen on walks as they make her nervous so she will need either a large garden so she has plenty of room for exercise or some one willing to help her build up her confidence out side.

She can be dominant with other dogs so for this reason I feel she may be best as an only dog or with a submissive male of similar size. Willow is fully vaccinated, spayed and chipped.


Lucy – 9 month old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Lucy is a 9 month old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Lucy is currently in foster in Gwent South Wales. Lucy came to us as a puppy. Her owners were only young and were struggling to cope with Lucy. By managing her she spent most of her time locked in a crate. She was quite under weight when she first came to us and her coat was dull and dusty.

Lucy is a happy young girl. She currently lives with two other dogs both male and female. She is sociable outside and loves her walks. She walks on a harness and travels well.

With Lucy’s age any potential home must be committed to do further training. Lucy had also been allowed to nip as a puppy. This has been worked on by her foster but if Lucy is over excited will try and play mouth. She has lots of energy so a active home would be good for her.

She is currently living with one child but would benefit a home with sensible kids 7 years up. Lucy has so much potential and with the right home could really bring her on.

Lucy is vaccinated, spayed and micro chipped. She is also up to date with flee and wormer. A homecheck and adoption fee of £165 applies


Cassie – 7 month old female German Shepherd cross St Bernard

Cassie is a 7 month old female German Shepherd cross Saint Bernard. Cassie is a beautiful dog in all ways, stunning to look at and has a lovely nature too. She is looking for a new home through no fault of her own. She would like new owners with large breed experience and who are around for most of the day as she does need some training. She is fine with other dogs and is currently in foster with all manner of dogs ranging from a German Shepherd Dog to a Chihuahua and cats. She is very polite with them all and has taken no notice of the cats so far.

Cassie must attend training classes as when she is fully grown she will be very strong. It is a imperative that she starts her training now so that she grows into a large but well behaved adult.

Cassie can be homed with older sensible children (she has been around toddlers with no issue)just because of her size. She is a little nervous of travelling in the car but we will continue to work with her on this as she has just not been in cars before.

Please consider fully before applying the cost of insurance and feeding and the potential size that Cassie could grow to. She will be re homed on a neutering contract and will need to be neutered at the correct time (we do offer reduced cost neutering at one of our vets). Cassie will be vaccinated, micro chipped and have had flea and worming treatment. She is currently on foster in Aldershot Hampshire.


Cleo – 2 year old female Cross-Breed

This is Cleo who is approximately 2 years old female Cross-Breed. She is very hard to get a picture of her as she’s so sweet and wriggly and just wants to lay down for a tummy rub. She is beagle size and living happily in foster with children and other dogs. She’s very affectionate and a quiet girl who loves human company. Being fostered in Blackmore Essex.


Honey and Lottie – 6-7 year old female Chihuahuas

Honey and Lottie are 6-7 year old female Chihuahuas. Honey and Lottie are the sweetest little girls you could wish to meet. When they arrived with us their nails were overgrown and what few teeth they had left were rotting away painfully. Lottie also had a very large hernia that could have been quite dangerous for her if left any longer. Honey has a grade 3-4 Heart murmur, most probably caused by her teeth. (she doesn’t require any medication at this time).

They have both seen our vet and had all the treatment they needed. Because neither of them have any teeth it does mean that their tongue’s hang out most of the time, we think this makes them extra special. Honey and Lottie are fine with other dogs, cats, teenagers – due to their size, they are very tiny (under 2kg) older children only please. They would like new owners who are around for most of the day as they do love a cuddle. You only have to look at them and their tails start to wag.

They are not house trained but we are working on this in foster, they are also not used to being walked, again we are working on this in foster. They do need to be fed separately as they can argue over food.

They are an adorable pair of dogs who really do deserve a wonderful home. They are currently on foster in Aldershot Hampshire, they have been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped. Lottie has had her hernia repaired and both have had their teeth sorted and nails clipped.


Rosie – 16 month old female Lurcher cross Collie

Meet beautiful young Rosie who has just arrived with us yesterday. She is a Lurcher cross Collie Girl of medium size at 24 inches to the shoulder. She is no more than 16 months old. She is happy and playful and gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home. Rosie loves playing with a ball and will fetch it to you as well. She is a bright girl and knows sit and paw and leave it. We think that Rosie will have good recall too. She is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated and we are now taking applications for this gorgeous girl. In Foster in Surrey.


Karma – 2 year old female Cross-Breed

Karma is a 2 year old female Cross-Breed. Karma was found with her family, 5 puppies and daddy, all the puppies disappeared. One was managed to be “save” and now he is in great hands. Even her “husband” was adopted! But she now is alone so the pack was split up. Now what? She needs to look forward and find a new home.

A few words about her: She is not older than 2 years old, about 20 kilos. I would say medium to large sized, i think she is a mix of mixed breeds. She is caring, calm, clean, obedient and friendly, gets along well with other dogs (not yet tested for cats), can be left alone though! She likes to sleep on the couch and bed and enjoys the human presence and touch.

I believe that she was born and raised as a stray because it seemed like she didn’t even know what a house is and once she got in and felt safe and warm she was snoring for two days! She is also an alert barker and would defend her house at any means!

She is faithful and grateful for being saved! Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness and that is why I call her Karma, cause she has given me good karma after saving her.


Coco – 5 year old female Labrador

Hello, my name is Coco. I’m a five year old female Labrador. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owners felt they no longer had the time to look after me properly. I’m a very friendly and active girl and I get along well with everyone I meet. I also get along well with other dogs, although I can be a little too full-on and boisterous for some. I’m toilet trained and I can be left home alone for a few hours without any problems providing I’ve had a good run beforehand.

I know the basic commands however I could benefit from further training as I can get a little over excitable and bouncy at times. I’m very playful and out-going and I always enjoy a good game with my toys. I’m also very affectionate and I just love having my tummy rubbed!

I’m now looking for an active forever home with a person or family who have owned dogs before and have researched my breed type. I can live with sensible children who are used to being around bouncy dogs and I’d could possibly live with a male dog who could cope with my lively nature. I can also live with dog-confident cats. My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes and provide me with a minimum of one hour of active off-lead exercise every day.

If you’re interested in adopting me you will need to be fully prepared for the hard work and long-term commitment involved in caring for a dog, you’ll be taking on a ten year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.
I hope to see you soon,


Hooch – 1 year old male Dogue de Bordeaux

Hello, my name is Hooch. I’m a one year old male Dogue de Bordeaux. I arrived at The Mayhew after being found abandoned on the streets of London. I’m a very friendly, playful and loveable chap. I get along well with everyone I meet and I like to snuggle in close for love and attention. I love having my belly rubbed and if you stop stroking me I’ll quickly offer you my paw to request that you continue. I’ll also try to sit on your lap if allowed!

I love going to the park and I get along well with other dogs I meet out and about. I know the basic commands but I do need further training. I’m currently learning to walk nicely on my lead without pulling but when I see a cat I soon forget my training, so I’ll need a strong owner with the strength to control me.

I’m now looking for an active person or family who are experienced with large breed dogs and have researched my breed type. I can live with sensible teenagers who are used to being around dogs but I’ll need to be the only pet in the home. It’s not yet known how long I cope being left home alone so I’m currently looking for a home where there is someone around for most of the day. My new owners will be expected to continue my training, take me to training classes and provide me with a minimum of one hour of active off-lead exercise every day, initially wearing a longline until my recall improves.

If you’re interested in adopting me you will need to be fully prepared for the hard work and long-term commitment involved in caring for a dog, you’ll be taking on a fourteen year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,


Toby – 4 year old male Terrier

Meet timid four year old terrier Toby, who is being fostered in Cardiff, South Wales. This little guy loves sitting on laps and on the settee – but only when invited first. He snuggles right up to you and enjoys being held like a baby. Toby does sleep a lot but also likes to spend time exploring in the garden. He likes his walks too. If you are in the kitchen he is soon on his back legs begging for food – watch out because if you leave the dishwasher open he will lick the plates!

When he came in Toby had a badly broken front left leg following a road traffic accident. He had surgery on this and has 2 plates and a wire in it. He has physiotherapy twice a day – 5 exercises and 3 walks of about 15 minutes each a day. He is slowly building up his strength on his bad leg. He is putting it on the ground to walk on it almost all of the time now but tends to run on 3 legs as that is quicker. He has had Metacam for pain relief but isn’t in pain very often now. Toby is due to go back to the vets on April 22 for a check up and x-ray to make sure his leg has healed so will not be rehomed until after this time but applications are welcome now.

Toby is quite a timid boy who would cower at a raised voice or if something was dropped near him. He is getting better all the time now. He isn’t going to scale your fences but will go through hedges so gardens will need to be secure. Toby is currently living with 3 dogs – he doesn’t play with them but is comfortable around them and does cuddle up to one of them to go to sleep. He will play with humans and play bow. Toby is sociable with adults and loves children as long as they aren’t really noisy. He loves to be touched. He looks sorry for himself when he knows you are going to do his physio but he is very good while doing it and doesn’t seem to be uncomfortable any more.

His foster family say that Toby is as good as gold in the car and travels well. He is fine at the vets but not surprisingly is a bit timid. He has been left for 3 to 4 hours on occasions as is fine with the other dogs out of the crate. He was previously crated but doesn’t need to be any longer. He is lead trained – he pulls a little at first but slows down quickly because of his leg. He does need further training when on the lead as he tends to snap initially at other dogs – although he then sniffs with them quite happily. This is being worked on.

Toby is looking for a quiet home where there is someone to give him lots of time and work on boosting his confidence. Any children in the home would need to be fairly quiet and know how to behave around dogs, and are not too boisterous. Toby loves attention and having lots of people around (as that means more people to cuddle him). He can be left for short periods but would need someone who is home for most of the day. His new family will need to continue with his physiotherapy and walks. He knows how to “sit” but is still learning to walk on a lead.


Toby is neutered, up to date with his vaccinations and flea/worming treatment and is micro-chipped. Prospective adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in South Wales.

If you are interested in adopting Toby please read about our rehoming process and complete a Pre-Adoption form ( link here ) and one of our adoption coordinators will contact you for a chat.
