This is the stunning Max. We are looking for a home that has had a similar type sight hound before. He is 2 years old and could be a Saluki cross Greyhound. He is rather a tall boy and so we are looking for an adult only home, either as an only dog or with […]

Astrid – 7 month old female Cross-Breed

Hello, my name is Astrid. I’m a seven month old female mixed-breed. I arrived at The Mayhew after being found abandoned on the streets of London. I’m a very friendly and sweet-natured girl. I get along very well with everyone I meet, always greeting people with a waggy tail. I also get along very well with other dogs of all shapes and sizes and I love meeting up with them for a play and run around in the park. I’m an intelligent dog and I’m now starting to learn the basic commands, which I’m responding well to and I have an excellent recall but I do need further training so I’ll need someone with plenty of time on their hands to continue my training and perfect my doggy manners.

I’m super affectionate and I love nothing more than snuggling up close for love and attention. I’m also very playful and I’m now starting to learn what fun can be had with toys. I’m now looking for a forever home with an active person or family who have owned dogs before and have researched my breed type. I can live with sensible children from twelve years of age and upwards providing they are used to being around bouncy dogs and I’d happily share my new home with another dog providing we’re the right match. I wouldn’t be suitable to live with cats. It’s not yet known how long I cope being left on my own for so I’m currently looking for a home where there is somebody 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.

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,

Astrid

Peggy Sue – 19 month old female Rottweiler

Hello, my name is Peggy Sue. I’m a nineteen month year old female Rottweiler. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner wasn’t able to look after me properly. I’m a confident, active, bouncy and friendly girl and I get along well with everyone I meet, always greeting people with a waggy tail and I’m learning not to jump up when saying ‘hello’. I also get along well with other dogs but I can be a little too over the top with them and most don’t appreciated my boisterous nature. I’m an intelligent girl. I get bored very easily, so my new owners will need to include me in daily activities and keep me both mentally and physically stimulated.

I’m toilet trained, I know the basic commands which I respond really well to and I enjoy learning new things. Super playful, I always enjoy a good game with my toys. I’m also very affectionate and I love to snuggle in close for love and attention. I’m now looking for a forever home with an active, confident and experienced person or all-adult family who have owned large breed dogs before and have researched my breed type. 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’ll need a home where there is somebody 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 to two hours 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 an tweleve year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,

Peggy Sue

Beau – 9 month old male English Cocker Spaniel cross Poodle

Hello, my name is Beau. I’m a nine month old male English Cocker Spaniel cross Poodle. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner was travelling a lot a felt she no longer had the time to look after me properly. I’m a very active and bouncy chap but I also have a sensitive side; I can be shy of new people, occasionally barking at strangers but I’m always very friendly with people who take the time to say ‘hello’ to me. I get along very well with other dogs and I love nothing more than meeting up with them for a play and run around in the park. I’m toilet-trained and I travel well in the car. I’ve also learnt the basic commands, which I respond well to but I do need further training so I’ll need someone with plenty of time on their hands to continue my training and perfect my doggy manners.

I’m not keen on being left alone and I like to be included in everyday activities. I have been known to bark when left home alone. I’m a very affectionate chap and I’ll roll over to have my tummy tickled at a moment’s notice. I’m also very playful and I always enjoy a good game with my toys, I especially enjoy playing football. I’m now looking for a forever home with an active person or family who have owned dogs before and have researched my breed type. I can live with sensible children from ten years of age and upwards providing they are used to being around bouncy dogs and I can live with another dog providing we’re the right match. I could also live with dog-confident cats that could tolerate my lively and playful nature and wouldn’t allow themselves to be chased. I’ll need a home where there is somebody around for most of the day and I wouldn’t be suitable to live in a flat. My new owners will be expected to take me 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.

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,

Beau

Tiny – 7 year old male Yorkshire Terrier

Tiny is not a very fitting name for this lad as he is not a “tiny” Yorkshire Terrier. He has had a difficult time recently and is now looking for a new home with owners who are patient, gentle and understanding. Poor Tiny has had part of his tail amputated, he has also had to be completely shaved as his coat was in very poor condition. This will grow back in a short time and he feels so much happier and comfortable with his coat gone. He is a very nervous boy who needs owners who have the time to let him settle with no pressure, once he is happy he will come for fuss. He does like it on his own terms though and will grumble if he is picked up.

Tiny is fine with other dogs and can be re homed with others or as an only dog, he has lived with other dogs in the past. He really needs an adult only home with owners who are around for most of the time and who are able to give him the space he needs to feel secure. He lives for his ball so would suit an active retired owner. Tiny is clean in the house and can be left happily for short periods. He has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped, he has also had a dental. Tiny is currently on foster in Guildford Surrey.

Dre – 14 month old male Saluki Cross

Dre is a black and white Saluki cross who may not be the brightest bulb but makes up for his lack of brains with his playful character and adorable nature. Dre came into our care at the end of September at just 14 months of age along with his sister Daisy (also featured on DogsBlog.com here). Sadly their owner could no longer afford to feed them alongside the other 9 dogs in the home.

All the dogs were kept in kennels but have been well socialised around people and appear used to being around people indoors. We have every reason to believe they will adapt well to living in the home as they love lounging on the sofa in our office and making the most of the home comforts available. Dre is very clean in his kennel and waits until his walks to go to the toilet so we are confident that he will quickly pick up house training.

Dre is a beautiful boy who loves food, playing chase and squeaky balls. He is a little shy at first when meeting new people, or going to unknown places, but with the support of his sister he quickly brightens up and starts to enjoy himself. He does a wonderful impression of a buck-a-roo, parading around our paddock with his legs flying everywhere, tossing his squeaky ball in the air. His attention span isn’t very long so he quickly gets bored of his toys and directs his attention onto Daisy. He loves to chase her around the paddock and plays really rough with her like an over grown puppy: he snaps his teeth, pulls on her ears and generally makes a nuisance of himself but thankfully Daisy loves it.

Dre is lacking in confidence out on walks but on a harness and lead and following behind another dog he walks well. He enjoys sniffing everything and trying to pick up scraps of food on his way and is happy walking past traffic. He does, however, act defensively sometimes to passing people and dogs when out on walks. We believe he wasn’t exercised away from the home much as a pup and so needs help with his socialising skills. A weekly dog class would help him gain confidence around unknown dogs and people as he is happy to make new friends in environments he feels comfortable in. It is simply out on walks he sometimes feels threatened and barks.

Dre is a lovely boy who enjoys hugs and kisses and will happily follow his human friends anywhere with a treat. Currently he doesn’t know any commands but his willingness to learn and his obsession with treats should make it an easy task. Due to his lack of confidence and reliance on another dog we are looking to rehome Dre to live with either Daisy, pictured above, or an existing dog in the home, but due to his full-on playing style the dog would need to be extremely tolerant and happy to join in Dre’s puppy fights. Dre is also very greedy and will eat everything in sight so the other dog must be willing to let him!

We are looking for adopters who won’t be out of the house for more than 4 hours at a time and where any children are teenage, as both dogs have a tendency to jump up and run into your legs if you’re not paying attention during play time. Neither dog is suitable  to live with other animals; they both have high prey drives so we would recommend not letting them off lead in public areas and to consider muzzle training them.

Daisy – 14 month old female Saluki Cross

Daisy is a Saluki cross girl who came into our care at the end of September at just 14 months of age along with her brother Dre (also featured on DogsBlog.com here). Sadly their owner could no longer afford to feed them alongside the other 9 dogs in the home. Daisy is a white and brindle Lurcher with eyes like sapphires; she is as sharp as a tack but will happily swap between showing off her commands and playing with her best friend and brother, Dre.

All the dogs were kept in kennels but have been well socialised around people and appear used to being around people indoors. We have every reason to believe they will adapt well to living in the home as they love lounging on the sofa in our office and making the most of the home comforts available. Daisy is very clean in her kennel and waits until her walks to go to the toilet so we are confident that she will quickly pick up house training.

Daisy is a smart dog who pleasantly surprises us every day with new tricks and skills she has picked up. She is always very eager to please and will quickly go into the sit position and demand that you take her paw in the hope of a treat. Once she has finished showing off she loves to run around in circles, tossing the favourite toy of the day in the air, normally a squeaky ball. Daisy loves to play with toys on her own; it’s a joy to watch her throw herself around the paddock pouncing on the toy to make sure it is definitely ‘dead’. She often gets distracted by Dre and it will often turn into a play fight and a chase around the paddock instead. (Daisy has a very full on playing style and likes to pull Dre’s ears!).

Once she has burnt off enough energy Daisy likes to have a cuddle and will come and lick your face clean for you or nibble your nose. She is an affectionate dog who enjoys spending time with people more than other dogs. Out on walks Daisy goes at a very slow pace, as she has to sniff every blade of grass she can find. She walks well on her harness and lead and has no worries about going out for walks without another dog for company but she can be quite defensive towards men and other dogs out on walks.

We believe she wasn’t exercised outside of the home environment much as a puppy so struggles to socialise properly with people and dogs in areas she doesn’t feel 100% comfortable. However, she is very well mannered meeting people and dogs onsite at our kennels where she feels safe and secure. Daisy is looking for a home either with Dre, pictured above together, or on her own. She is more than happy to play and exercise by herself and is so intelligent that we believe that in a home as the only pet, with all the attention and time devoted to her, she could be a magnificent lady.

We are looking for adopters who won’t be out of the house for more than 4 hours at a time and where any children are teenage, as both dogs have a tendency to jump up and run into your legs if you’re not paying attention during play time. Neither dog is suitable to live with other animals; they both have high prey drives so we would recommend not letting them off lead in public areas and to consider muzzle training them.

Dotty – 5 month old female Bichon Frise cross Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Dotty came to us unsold due to having a serious heart murmur. She has seen a Cardiac Specialist and has been diagnosed with a small hole in the heart. There is no treatment for this and it is hoped Dotty will go on to have a long and happy life, although we cannot guarantee this. She will need to have her heart re scanned in approximately 12 months at our vets in Kent, just to ensure all is progressing well. We will of course cover the cost of this.

Dotty is in all other ways a typical young pup, full of beans and mischief. She is getting the hang of house training and is enjoying her walks. She will need new owners who are around for most of the day and who understand that her needs could potentially change when she is older. She would be best re homed with another resident dog as she can be a little nervous initially. Once she gets to know you she is a loving little pup who loves to play. She is fine with other dogs, interested in cats and can be homed with older sensible children.

Dotty travels well in the car. New owners will need to be around for most of the day. Her coat will need regular grooming so please consider fully the cost of this before applying. Dotty will need to be neutered at the correct time as part of the Adoption Contract. He has been vaccinated, micro chipped and is having regular flea and worming treatment. He is currently on foster in Basingstoke Hampshire.

Lucky – 1 year old female Labrador Cross

Lucky the 1 year old chocolate-colored Labrador cross has a wonderful personality that makes her a very easy dog to become highly attached to, and if you were to spend any time with her you would soon find yourself unshakably smitten. She is very excitable and playful and absolutely adores being taken on a walk or having a bit of playtime. She’s still a tiny, little puppy at heart! Labrador’s are quite renowned for their nigh-on insatiable appetites and it looks as though little Lucky has lived up to this reputation, with a gorgeous rotundity that marks her out from her contemporaries.

She retains the wonderful cuteness of puppyhood and a quick glance at any of the pictures that accompany this write-up will back this up, from her butter-would not-melt mouth all the way to her wriggly bum, this sugar-coated cupcake is a delight from head to toe! There is nothing more satisfying than wrapping this lovely little lady’s squishy tummy in your arms and giving her a great big cuddle! Simply put, how can you not love our roly-poly rascal? She initially arrived at the center alongside her – somewhat slimmer – sister, Bonnie, who has since been adopted. At that point, both were suffering from a quite severe skin complaint and looked a little worse for wear, though still irresistibly adorable! Due to this condition, they were forced to stay with us for longer than they would have liked, but now that she has the all-clear, this portly pooch is all ready and raring to go to find her forever home! Can you offer Lucky a lovely home just like her sister?

Lucky has a lovely nature and so would be suitable in most home environments, excluding those with young children (below 10 years old) due to her excitability, including those with other pooches as Lucky is a very good mixer – though perhaps a little too energetic for certain dogs – but otherwise she’s an adaptable little chublet who can make the right owner exceptionally happy – and will make them feel very Lucky indeed!

Blitz – 2 year old male German Shepherd cross Rottweiler

Long legged blitz the 2 year old German Shepherd crossed with a Rottweiler, is one of our more elegant dogs. He’ll stand around the exercise run with a wonderful proud air about him, looking extremely handsome and sophisticated. He’s a very confident and loyal chap who’ll intelligently listen to commands and play chase for a lifetime if you asked him to. One of the delightful things about blitz is his cheery face; he has a huge grin nearly all of the time and its definitely contagious! Most people find themselves smiling from ear to ear in blitz’s company, without even realizing it!

This agile, energetic and eager to please boy is looking for an only pet household with children aged 13 plus, who have the time to give him tons of love, attention, a few treats and a big smile in return.

Lynx – 5 year old male Mastiff Cross

My name is Lynx, I am a 5 year old, male Mastiff cross. I arrived at Carla Lane Animals in Need after they saved me from being destroyed at the dog pound almost 2 years ago. Since then my life has been a roller coaster ride of a time, last year I fell I’ll and was on a drip in the vets. I lost a lot of weight and went down to 20kgs. It is a miracle that I pulled through. I am a big softy and love kisses and cuddles. I walk well on the lead and carry my kong toy everywhere I go. I walk well around other dogs too, but due too my past I can be dominant in the home so need an experience owner with no children or other pets. I am now ready for a forever home, I am now 43kgs and counting, a happy healthy boy.
