Evie – 5 week old female Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Thank you to all who entered to name the Pup. Evie was a name entered By Penny Coulson and 1st Drawn out of the hat. Evie is a delight to watch and we have been so very lucky to have seen her grow and survive against all the odds. She came to us with her mum and sister when she was just a few hours old after mum and dad were found abandoned chucked into the hedge like rubbish.

Evie’s sister sadly did not make it but Evie has been a little fighter from day one. She is now a lovely well adjusted pup who has been raised in a family home with all the usual noises and lots of cuddles from everyone. She will need new owners who are around for most of the day and who will have the time and patience to dedicate to training her and ensuring she continues to grow into a well behaved and social young lady.

Evie will pee, poo, chew and for a few days I am sure have a little whine. Whilst we all agree she is beautiful, please consider fully, before applying that you are able to meet her needs for the next 10-15 years. Evie will be fine to be homed with other dogs and young enough to be taught to like cats. Having been in foster with lots of dogs she is very comfortable around all manner and size of breeds. She can be homed with older sensible children.

Evie, we are sure will be lucky enough to have lots of applicants, we will match the right home for her needs so please be patient with us. Evie will be ready to go to her new home in 3 weeks time, she is already eating well and using puppy pads. She will have had her 1st vaccination and be chipped, up to date with flea and worming treatments and will be re homed with a contract to ensure she is neutered at the correct time. Whilst this will be at the new owners expense we do offer greatly reduced cost neutering at our vets.

Evie is currently on foster in Aldershot Hampshire.


Poppy – 10 month old female Siberian Husky cross Golden Retriever

Hello, my name is Poppy. I’m a ten month old female Siberian Husky and Golden Retriever crossbreed. I arrived at The Mayhew because I wasn’t getting on with the cat I was living with. I’m an active and friendly girl. I get along well with everyone I meet and I also get along very well with other dogs and I enjoy meeting up with them for a play in the park.

I’m toilet-trained, I know the usual commands which I respond well to, I can be left home alone for a couple of hours without any problems and I travel well in the car. I love playing with my toys, I often like to hide them in the garden and then I have great fun finding them again. My favourite toy is a ball on a rope. I also like to chase after birds in the park. I’m a very affectionate dog and I always enjoy a good tummy rub.

I’m now looking for a forever home with an active person or family who have owned dogs before. I can live with sensible children from eight years of age and upwards who are used to being around dogs and I’d happily share my new home with another dog but no cats please. 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 fourteen year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,



Bobbie – 7 month old male English Springer Spaniel

Bobbie is looking for a new home through no fault of her own. She is a 7 month old English Springer Spaniel. Typical of her age and breed she is a lively, intelligent and demanding pup. She does need training and although she knows the basics she needs to learn how to behave! She needs someone who can commit to the time and dedication needed to train and exercise her with physical and mental stimulation.

She can be dominant with other dogs so would be best living with a calm, confident well behaved canine, not a submissive dog. She is crate trained, house trained and sleeps quietly at night. She is currently in a foster home and lives happily with young children, 3 dogs and rabbits. We will want to know what training classes you will be taking Bobbie to and proof of this will be required.


Boston – 9 month old male German Shepherd Dog

The lively wonderfully handsome Boston is just 9 months old and in our kennels here in Nottinghamshire, we would love to find him his new home, where he can learn loads of commands, he is very ball orientated as well as food, treat orientated too. This boy has loads of potential and will thrive with a confident patient new owner.

Boston needs to be neutered you will be contracted to 1 month to have him neutered. Please see our strict neutering policy. We would suggest a cat free home as he has high prey drive. Other dogs he is friendly towards and will thrive and also able to mirror other dogs and their behaviours. Slow introductions will be needed and supervised too. Children we would suggest 12-15 years onwards as Boston does mouth, and is high energy, gets very giddy and will knock over younger children without any thought.

We would suggest an experienced home for Boston as he will take a lot of training and patience.


Lola – 9 month female German Shepherd Dog

Lola is 9 month old female German Shepherd dog. The beautiful Lola is just 9 months old and in need of a new home – she is fully of energy and would suit a home which can burn off some of the energy and train her too. Lola is not neutered and will be subjected to being neutered within 3 months, please see our strict neutering contract. Lola has lived with children from 10 years onwards she is quite excitable and giddy so younger children might knock little ones over. Other dogs Lola has lived with and there are no issues at all, we would suggest supervised introductions.

Lola is like a whirlwind which pups of 9 months old are, they are fun but do need plenty of training and boundaries put in place. Lola is currently with her owners here in the Nottinghamshire area.

Sophie – 6 month old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Beautiful calm white long legged staffordshire puppy girl aged 6 months old, she is a complete star !! She is good with children, dogs and cats so she will fit into most homes easily. She has a cheeky black spot over her eye and she loves to cuddle up on the sofa! Sophie came from a home where they had too many dogs and couldn’t afford to keep her any longer. She is in a foster home in West Bromwich, West Midlands.


Fosterers report: Sophie is good with my cats and calm for a puppy – working on her house training at the moment but its early days yet and she learns very fast. She is vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and too young to be neutered but this must be done when she is old enough, microchipped. Adoption fee is £135.


Mara – 4 month old female German Shepherd Dog

Mara is absolutely adorable, a 4 month old German Shepherd bitch who everyone falls in love with as soon as they see her. Unfortunately as she was orphaned at an early age she wasn’t taught any manners by her Mum, and has had no human training in our shelter in Romania. This has resulted in a very unruly pup who needs a knowledgeable owner who can take control. She can only be homed with other dogs if they are large enough to cope as she doesn’t understand being ‘put in her place’ by a smaller dog. She also cannot be homed with small children as nips and nibbles quite hard. We cannot stress enough that she is more to handle than a ‘normal’ German Shepherd pup – but she is incredibly beautiful, very affectionate and will make the right person a wonderful pet.

Rosa and Laura – 8 week old female Chihuahua Crosses

Rosa and Laura are of course absolutely gorgeous and approximately 8 weeks old! I just wanted to hold and cuddle them forever, and keep them for myself! They are wonderfully loving, gentle, little pups, and they just love giving and receiving kisses. Everyone at the Centre wants them and the kennel ladies are trying to spend as much time with them as they can (what a terrible job lol!). They are playful little pups of course, they are great fun and will make super little companions. Rosa and Laura have come to us as part of litter who were abandoned on a river bank! Due to their appearance we believe them to be Chihuahua crosses. They have lovely temperaments and they are the sweetest puppies! We very much hope to be able to rehome them together, but we haven’t ruled out rehoming them singularly to the right homes.

Rosa and Laura are very young and as such will need to be cossetted and kept close to you. They will need to be kept cuddled and warm and treated like the baby animals they are. They will also need to be treated as dogs though and combining the two of these things will not be easy! When rehoming them we also have to consider that their new owners can cope with the day-to-day living with puppies and that they may live another 15+ years (and probably more being a tiny breed) so
we have to think of the longevity of the home. Rosa and Laura really need a home as soon as possible please and we are looking for a home with the following: Someone at home virtually all day (every day), someone able to give them plenty of undivided attention, A calm, steady, stable household, Someone with plenty of patience, and who is prepared to be consistent, and persistent, a secure, enclosed, safe garden (for supervised play and toileting), someone prepared to take them to puppy classes, and then training classes, someone who can keep them well socialised with other dogs.

When they are old enough, they will need a couple of nice walks every day please (in nice, warm dog coats from now on, until the weather is better well into the Spring), and will need an enclosed, secure garden for extra fun and games with you please. They will need plenty of company through the day too, even when they are fully grown as small dogs such as these have been bred to be human companions and don’t do well being left. They will need to be spayed when they are 6 months old and this is written into their adoption contract. Rosa and Laura could be rehomed with another small breed of dog, but they must be calm and very dog-friendly and not elderly. They could live with sensible, kind children aged 8+ as they are delicate puppies. They could live with cats, but no dog-bullying cats please as your cat will be bigger than they are!

Above all else, you and your family will need to give Rosa and Laura all the love, care and attention they need and very much deserve. If you are interested in Rosa and Laura please see the link to our rehoming procedure (link)
