Gordon – 2 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hello, my name is Gordon. I’m a two year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew after being found abandoned on the streets of London. I’m an active, bouncy and sweet-natured boy. I’m super friendly and I get along well with everyone I meet, always greeting people with a waggy tail. I also get along well with other dogs, although I can be a little grumpy with some larger males.

I’m hard of hearing so my carers at The Mayhew are teaching me hand signals, I’m an intelligent chap so I’m learning quickly. I’m outgoing and playful, I can sometimes get a little over excited and boisterous but I’m now learning manners. I always enjoy playing with teddies but most of all I like to be showered with love and attention, I like to give kisses if allowed and I love having my back scratched.

I’m now looking for a forever home with an active and experienced person or family. I can live with sensible teenagers 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’ll need a home where there is somebody around for most of the day. My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes and provide me with a minimum of one hour of active controlled off-lead exercise every day wearing a long line.

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 twelve year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.
I hope to see you soon,



Eve – 1 year old female Jack Russell Terrier

Hello, my name is Eve. I’m a one year old female Jack Russell Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew after being found abandoned on the streets of London. I’m sweet-natured and sensitive girl. I get along well with everyone I meet and I get along well with other dogs, sometimes a little shy of boisterous dogs but it doesn’t take me long to make friends. I’m super affectionate, I always enjoy being showered with love and attention and I like to climb up on to peoples’ laps if allowed.

I also love going to the park and I have a good recall off my lead. I’m toilet trained, I can be left home alone for a couple of hours without any problems and I know the basic commands which I respond well to. I’m very playful and I love playing with my toys and I always enjoy a good game of fetch. I also love a carrot to chew on!

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 who are used to being around dogs and I can live with another dog providing they’ll give me space to settle in. 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 fourteen year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,



Anna – 12-14 month old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Hi everyone, I’m Anna! I was found abandoned but no one seems to understand why! After ending up in the pound, I have been taken into the care of All Dogs Matter.” Anna is a sweet and friendly girl who is looking for her forever home! We would love to get her on foster in the meantime as well. She could live with children over the age of 10 and possibly a calm male dog. She has not been cat tested yet.

Please keep an eye out for further updates, as we need to carry out further assessment now she has come into our care.


Rundo – 2-3 year old male Cross-Breed

One word to describe Rundo – Stunning! He is a fully sighted 2.5 year old medium sized boy who is in foster in Scotland after coming from Bosnia. He is an absolute gentleman, great with other dogs, and is also cat tolerant, having slept with the resident on an overnight stop on his way to Scotland.

His foster Mum says:

Rundo has been with us for a fortnight. In that short time, he has gone from friendly street dog to a big, soft, eager to please, desperate to earn praise, fluff ball. This is the dog for you if you want a nudge of a cold nose in the morning and a paw when you’re sitting having a cup of tea, simply because he wants a cuddle. Rundo is a beautiful bear of a dog, about retriever size but chunkier (he’s presently in boot camp to loose a few pounds). He adores people, is beginning to have confidence to play with other dogs on walks and is happily sharing his house space (and attention) with a blind female pointer cross.

Rundo is house trained and is picking up English commands. He travels well in the car, has the beginnings of a recall, loves his food but waits patiently while our other foster finishes hers and is learning to walk on a harness and lead. This is a dog who will return the love you give to him tenfold. The one to share happy and sad times with and the one who so deserves a comfy bed to call his own.


Felicia – 2 year old female Corgi Cross

Felicia is a young dog of approximately 2 years old and is the size and build of a corgi. Felicia survived the fire that broke out at the Daniflor Public Shelter in Romania. A rescuer from Targoviste drove there to offer her help, and take out 5 of the dogs that were in the worst shape.

Felicia is missing one eye, but she is still a very happy girl knowing that a chance of a home is much closer now she is in the UK and safe. Felicia is young, healthy and excellent with other dogs.

Felicia is located in Essex. She is an incredibly sweet girl, who travels well in the car, and loves her cuddles.


Noel – 18 month old male Bichon Frisé Cross

Meet Noel, an 18 month old handsome Bichon Frisé cross who has come to us after his family had a change of circumstance. Noel is a very friendly boy, who loves strokes and affection. Noel is a petite dog who fits perfectly on your lap! He’s an active boy, who loves playing and enjoys his walks. He walks very nicely on the lead. Noel has lived with children before and really likes them. He’s good with other dogs and could possibly live with a calm female.

Noel has separation anxiety, so will need an owner who is home most of the time. He is noisy when left alone, so wouldn’t be suited to living in a flat. Noel has been a big hit in our office because he is such a sweetheart!


Nina – 2 year old female Fox Terrier Cross

Nina is a female terrier looking for her forever home – very like a fox terrier approximately 2 years old. She only has 3 legs and had her other back leg repaired after injury following being hit by a car in Romania. Her vision is perfect, and she is in fine health though due to be spayed. She is coping very well on 3 legs and is currently building up her strength. She is very playful and active and has strong terrier traits, wants to chase – especially cats so not suited to live with cats.

She gets excited when seeing other dogs, is wary at first but does like to play. She is currently in a foster home with other dogs. She would suit a home as an only dog or an experienced home with other dogs as she is a little possessive with toys and food. A family with older children, couple or single person would be ideal. An important point is she has a wire coat which needs regular grooming- and is in slow process of being handstripped which she doesnt mind.

Nina is very sweet and wants to follow you and likes to know whats going on. She is nearly house-trained and is already crate trained. She is being rehomed through Blind Dog Rescue UK for an adoption fee and is currently on the Isle of Man.


Denzel – 2 year old male Cross-Breed

Little Denzel has been through so much in his short life. He comes from Romania where he was abandoned in the University Campus and spent his time strolling around trying to get inside the building. While he was doing this, he was hit by a car and his left eye was badly damaged and he was left for days with his poor eye hanging out. Eventually, someone took pity on him, and took him to the vet after he had spent days suffering in the bushes.

Our friends at Angel Watch took him on after his eye had been removed at the vets, and he started to recover under their care. Denzel is an adorable little boy. He is very young – around two years old – and extremely cute – around 4 kg. His eye has healed beautifully, and being a one-eyed chap doesn’t bother him at all.

Denzel is a shy lad who will benefit from living with other friendly dogs and an owner who is around most of the time to give him the confidence that he needs. He is learning to walk on a lead in his foster home, and is doing well in his house-training. Denzel isn’t cat tested.

If you are looking for a little companion who will snuggle up next to you on the sofa, and if you have another dogs for company for him, then Denzel is your man.  Denzel is in foster in Essex.


Ace – 1 year old male Cross-Breed

Ace was found in by rescuers in Valcea, Romania in May this year. He is only a young pup, under a year old. His eye was ruptured and had to be removed. Ace is a happy boy, and gets along with other dogs. Unfortunately Ace had to be returned by his original adopter as he likes to chase cats, so a cat free home is now sought. He is now back at the stables in Essex waiting for the right family.

The family who originally adopted him were very upset that they had to make this decision, but obviously it was unfair on their elderly cat. They said what a super boy he was, and how well he was starting to learn commands in the 2 weeks that he was living with them. He is still a young pup around 10 months, so he will require someone willing to continue to train him.

Ace gets along with other dogs, and is living with others in the stables and previously in the shelter in Romania. He would probably benefit from living with another dog so he has a companion, and another dog to learn from. He is a bundle of fun, and everyone who meets him thinks he is a smashing boy.


Greta – 2-3 year old female Collie Cross

Greta is a young female around 2-3 years old. She is a friendly girl who is great with other dogs. She would make a wonderful companion, she is has a lovely nature as she is quiet and very mild. Greta was rescued from the streets and taken to a private shelter, and from there came to the UK. She is a very pretty girl, roughly the size of a small collie and looks as though she has collie in her breed. She is friendly will all the other dogs, but a nervous girl who will benefit from being homed with another dog.

She loves her treats so food orientated training would work very well with her. After being there a little while she ran up when we called her, but she will stop just before she gets to you and walks slower. You can see that she wants to come to you, she is just unsure. She has improved greatly in the few weeks she has been here as she gets to know the people who are taking care of her, but she really needs more 1 on 1 just to build her confidence. She didn’t bark at all whilst we were there, and was running up and down the stables and wagging her tail. She will definitely blossom, and she will come to you it’s just confidence building.

Greta is a girl who wants to be loved, she needs a family who are willing to spend a little time with her. I have no doubt that once she has a home, she will be a very quick learner as she loves her treats and will come on leaps and bounds. She is located in Essex but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK. Homecheck and adoption fee apply.


Lilly – 1 year old female Collie cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Lilly is the most gorgeous Collie cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy at just under a year old who has come on so well in her foster home. Lilly is fantastic with other dogs and her recall is spot on, she is currently living in a multi pet household and with children age 10+ without issues and is house trained. Lilly will easily jump a stair gate and does so regularly so a secure fencing of at least 6 foot is essential. Lilly loves her beach and park runs and I believe she really would excel at agility or flyball activities. Beautiful dog with a really lovely sweet nature, she knows basic commands and is willing to please, loves her human company, so plenty of fur baby cuddles available. Lilly is flea treated, wormed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and spayed. Lilly is currently with a foster in Rayleigh, Essex.

Tanner is castrated, chipped and has had his first vaccination. Tanner is a very kid, gentle and loving boy.
