Mavis – 14 year old female Terrier Cross

Please meet marvelous Mavis! Mavis came into rescue when she was handed into the pound as a stray. She was unclaimed after days and faced being put to sleep and so we took her in! Mavis is a terrier cross, our grand ole lady of approximately 14 years and looking for her forever home. She was not in the best condition, She is thin and we think probably blind, although after a couple of days she has settled well, learnt the routine and finds her way around well. She will do anything for food!! For an older dog she is very agile and loves short walks and even a little run.

Mavis is very affectionate and loves to cuddle up next to you. Mavis is not keen on being picked up and she will wiggle equally when she is confused she will howl a very quiet little howl and needs a little reassurance. We think she may have a little bit of dementia but is happy clean and able so deserves a chance! She is clean in the house and fine with other dogs. Mavis is just so adorable and needs a loving home to see out her twilight years in comfort, warmth and lots of love. Please can someone find room in their homes and hearts for this wonderful little lady?


Flash – 6 year old male Jack Russell Terrier Cross

Hi my name is Flash and I’m a 6 year neutered old Jack Russell cross. I was handed over to Safe Rescue as my owner in the UK no longer wanted me. Not sure why exactly as I’m a lovely little chap who loves cuddles. I had very long claws when I came but I have been to the vets and had them cut, been microchipped, vaccinated and de-flead, wormed so I’m all set for my new home.

I get on fine with dogs in my foster home but would probably prefer to live with just one dog for company or on my own as enjoy the company of humans too. I’m perfectly fine with cats and children but would prefer calm children over the age of 8 to either live with or who visit. I am a happy little boy who is house trained and very excitable on the lead. If you want to find out more about me please get in touch.


Maddie – 4-6 year old female Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Poor Maddie suffered terribly before coming to us, found abandoned on a cold wet night part way through giving birth. We can only surmise as to what has happened to this girl and those thoughts are not pleasant. Maddie came to us when her pups were just 12 hours old, she had two pups, we have no idea what happened to any others or if in fact there were any others. Maddie was in a terrible state with her ears hanging in matted dreadlocks, her back end matted right down to her skin and covered in flea’s, infected eyes and overgrown nails along with terrible infected ears. This alone was bad enough but this poor girl gave birth alone and frightened.

Sadly Maddie’s other pup did not make it, she had a very large hernia that ruptured and nothing could be done to save her. She went peacefully being cuddled. Maddie’s sole surviving pup is now 9 days old, we don’t know what the future holds but we are doing our best for both of them. Maddie still comes for cuddles, her eyes hold fear and sadness yet still she tries to trust. She is the sweetest little girl and the most wonderful mum that you could wish for. She is doing great and looking after her pup really well.

It is doubtful that Maddie has seen a vet yet alone received any treatment, she has very few teeth and will need quite some work when her pup is grown. We are treating her ears and eyes, have trimmed all her matts off and made sure she is as warm and comfortable and secure as we can manage.

Maddie will be looking for a new home as soon as pup is old enough and she has finished receiving treatment. She is currently on Foster in Aldershot Hampshire.


Earl – 6 year old male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Poor Earl was abandoned along with his girlfriend on a cold wet night, thrown away like last weeks rubbish. Thankfully for us they were found and handed in. Earl is a very handsome charming boy who is a true delight to have around. This lad lives to love and loves to live. Earl is great with other dogs, cats, small furries and children. Travels well in the car, is clean in the house, all in all just about perfect by anyone’s standards. Earl would like new owners who are around for most of the day, he can be homed with or without another dog but must have human company.

When Earl came to us he was in a bit of a sorry state, he has been neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, had flea and worming treatments and an extensive dental. Poor Earl lost 20 of his teeth but this hasn’t stopped him eating. Earl is currently on foster in Guildford Surrey.


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.


Oskar – 8-9 year old male Boxer

This handsome man is Oskar, he is 8.5 years old, still a giddy kipper and full of fun! Sadly Oskars dad passed away and he found himself in kennels, Oskar was his lifelong companion, they did everything together and he was a very much loved boy. We are now looking for a very special home for him who will love him jut as much as his dad did! Oskar has never lived with other dogs but he has been okay with those he has met, he is living with a little female at the moment and loves to play with her. He does need a home with no young children though as he does not have a history of living with children (or cats!) but has been fine with older kids (10+).

Oskar is such a lovely lad who is full of beans but also very cuddly, he loves a good bum rub and a boxer snog! He is crate trained, travels well in the car and knows all of his basic command, he loves his food too so will do anything for a treat :) he loves to run and play or even just to sit with you whilst you are busy doing something.

Oskar needs a home where he will have company for most of the day as he does not like to be left alone, especially at bed time! He is the sweetest cuddliest boy but has clearly been worried and a little knocked back by this whole situation ideally he needs a home experienced with the breed. But one that will not be forceful with him and will respect all that he has been through.

Oskar is now in a foster home in Nottingham.


Chico – 9 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

My name is Chico, I’m a Staffordshire Bull Terrier boy aged 9 years old. I came into rescue with my best friend Jodie after our owner passed away. I have big brown eyes and a lovely smooth chocolate coat. I am a very lovable, steady boy in need of a new home. I am good with dogs and all people, little and large! I am lonely here in the kennels, Jodie has already gone to her new home but I am still waiting. I would really love to be snuggled up in front of a fire this Christmas.


Bobby – 6 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

My name is Bobby, I am a 6 year old tan Staffordshire Bull Terrier boy. I originally came to Carla Lane Animals in Need as a stray, the dog warden collected me and after spending 7 days at the council kennels I was up for destruction, because my owner didn’t claim me. I was in a state, starved and in need of some TLC.

After months of extra meals and cheese and biscuits for supper, I have now reached my target weight. I walk well on the lead and will sit, paw, lie down, roll over and even speak for a yummy cube of cheese – mmm my favourite! I am a happy, friendly boy with big gentle chocolate button eyes. I need a pet free home, but would love my own human for Christmas.


Bart – 7 year old male Greyhound

Bart is looking for a new home due to a change in his owners circumstances. Bart is excellent in the house – fully house-trained and has good manners when people are eating. He does like to lie on the couch but will lie on his bed if told. He is fine with all the other dogs in the house apart from when he is sleeping. He does like his own space when he is sleeping.

Bart is fine with other sighthounds and calm dogs but does need careful introduction with other breeds, however Barts owner has worked very hard with him and he can now walk passed calm dogs, he does not like off lead dogs running up and getting in his face though, he is very anxious if this happens. He gets fed with 2 other greyhounds at the moment – he hasn’t shown any signs of food aggression.

Bart loves to go out for walks and gets quite excited when he sees his lead coming out. He knows basic commands such as sit, lie-down and paw and is very responsive to his name. He is a big snuggle monster and loves to curl up on the couch for a cuddle. He loves to play with a tennis ball in the garden and will amuse himself for ages just throwing it around and chasing after it before collapsing in a heap. Bart has a lot to offer a potential new home, all he asks is for this home to be his forever one.


Rags – 6-7 year old female Jack Russell Terrier cross Norfolk Terrier

This adorable little lady is Rags and she has such a sad story to tell. She came into rescue with her friend Missy from her previous home where she was not being cared for properly and was most likely abused as well. Rags is now safe in the care of Starfish Dog Rescue where she is being treated kindly by her loving foster mum. She is a Norfolk terrier cross Jack russell who is just 6/7 years of age. Rags has the sweetest nature and is slowly responding to the love and care she is receiving in her foster home. It has been a heartbreaking journey for her; when she first arrived she just hid for days behind a chair and when she went into the garden, she would wedge herself behind the greenhouse and hide, the poor girl. She now has a regular routine which includes walks, meals and of course, lots of TLC.

Rags love going for her walks, but she is still quite nervous and the smallest thing can make her jump. The poor girl flattens to the ground as if she is afraid of being hit. :( However, she will come up behind you wagging her little tail and give you kisses. She is gaining confidence every day with her foster family, which includes another small dog. Rags sleeps well all night upstairs and is clean in the house. She has met the granddaughter and is fine, although she does not like it when she plays drums with a wooden spoon. She would probably do best in a quiet home without lots of young children around. She desperately needs a loving, patient home where her owners will not expect too much of her to begin with but will allow her to gain their trust as slowly as she needs to.

Here is a lovely video of Rags in the garden:

Rags could share her home with another quiet, calm and gentle dog. She doesn’t have a bad bone in her body and she so deserves to be loved and cherished as she should have been earlier in her life.


Missy – 6-7 year old female Fox Terrier Cross

Cute little Missy came into rescue as a neglected and abused little lady. She is a little Fox Terrier cross who is only around 6/7 years of age. She and her friend Rags arrived in rescue with Starfish Dog Rescue together, in the hopes they would find loving new homes where they can be cherished as they deserve to be. Poor Missy was quite traumatized when she first came into rescue, but just a couple of weeks in her foster home, she is a different girl! She still has that worried look with new people and is not as confident as a little terrier should be, but she loves her foster family and has settled in very well with them. She loves playing ball with the boys and she is happy to make herself comfy on the beds when her foster mum is at work!

Missy just loves her cuddles and she would like a home where she has free access to the sofa and beds as well! She is good on her walks and off the lead, but is still a little anxious and sticks close by you. Although she travels well in the car, she is still just a little anxious and nervous there as well, poor baby. Missy can live with children, but would prefer a quiet home where the kids are a bit older and used to being with dogs. She does enjoy playing football in the garden! She would love for her new owners to give her plenty of cuddles and reassurance and she would really love to share the bed with you at night!

Here is a video of Missy enjoying a game of ball with her foster family!


Pippin – 10 year old male Lhasa Apso

Pippin is a lovely Lhasa Apso who has come to us after a change in his owners circumstances. He is 10 years old, but acts like a dog half his age! Pippin is a very friendly boy, who loves human company and is very affectionate. He is very good with other dogs when out and about.

Pippin does have severe separation anxiety and really hates being left on his own. He needs an owner who is going to be around the majority of the time. We would prefer Pippin to be rehomed with another dog, as we feel that would give him security and would help with his anxiety. Pippin is very good with children. He can’t live with cats.
