Lucky – 4 year old male Pomeranian

Hello, my name is Lucky. I’m a four year old male Pomeranian. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner died. I’m a very friendly and out-going boy and I get along well with everyone I meet. Super affectionate, I love nothing more than cuddling up close for love and attention. I’m not really into toys, I’ll play with them if encouraged and chase after a ball but I’d much rather be curled up on someone’s lap.

I can be grumpy with other dogs because I’ve not been properly socialised with them in the past and I’ll bark at them when I’m on my lead. Off my lead I interact better with them but I do need further controlled socialisation. I’m a real people dog and I like to be included in everyday activities. I don’t like being left on my own and I’ll bark when left home alone. I travel well in the car and also on public transport, and I know the basic commands which I respond well to.

I’m now looking for a forever home with an experienced 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 and dog-confident cats but I wouldn’t be suitable to live with another dog, or in a flat. I’ll need a home in a rural or semi-rural area where I can be exercised without coming into constant contact with lots of other dogs. My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes, continue working on my socializationwith other dogs and provide me with a minimum of one hour of controlled 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 eleven year commitment which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,

Lucky

Stella – 10 year old female Terrier Cross

Hello, my name is Stella. I’m a ten year old female Terrier mixed-breed. I arrived at The Mayhew after being found abandoned on the streets of London. I’m a very friendly and well-behaved girl. I’m super affectionate and I enjoy getting love and attention from everyone I meet. I also get along very well with other dogs.

I’m toilet-trained, I walk nicely on my lead without pulling and I know the usual commands which I respond well to. I have a heart murmur but it doesn’t seem to affect me or slow me down and at the moment it doesn’t require any treatment. I love going to the park where I enjoy running around and interacting with other dogs and I have a good recall off my lead.

I’m now looking for a forever home with a person or family who have researched my breed type. I can live with children from twelve years of age and upwards and I’d also happily share my new home with other dogs and dog-confident cats.

Stella

I’m a very active and friendly boy and get along very well with everyone I meet, quickly building very strong bonds. I’m not keen on being left on my own, preferring to be included in everyday activities and I’ve been known to bark when left home alone.

I love going to the park and I have a very good recall off my lead.

James – 4 year old male Terrier cross Pug

This gorgeous boy is James, the 4-year old Terrier cross Pug, who is being fostered in Crewe, Cheshire. Don’t be fooled by the ‘pug’ in his make up. This boy has a terrier personality through and through. He has energy by the bucket-load and a deep hatred for felines! James requires a lot of exercise and stimulation on a daily basis. His recall is excellent so he regularly enjoys long runs in the fields near his foster home. On a lead he will bark at other dogs, but once introduced he will happily run and play with others. He is very responsive and listens to vocal commands. On the lead James pulls initially, but he does love being outside, and this is just due to over excitement. He soon calms down and walks well on a lead.

Since being in his current foster home it has become obvious that James is a very stressy, anxious lad who would benefit from living in a quiet and calm home with no children, or older, calmer ones. He came into us earlier in the year and was adopted by a young family. Unfortunately, he was returned to us because he wasn’t coping and was exhibiting signs of stress. At the moment James is getting ‘back to basics’ puppy training and he needs to learn how to stay calm – this is something that his new family will have to continue with. The high energy, over-excited behaviour is very much stress related and will no doubt get worse when moving to a new home. Any prospective adopters should work with his current fosterer to reduce this.

In his foster home there is a very dog savvy cat but James chases him at every opportunity so he will not be rehomed with cats or small animals. He currently lives with multiple breeds and sizes of dogs and has no issues but was a little over enthusiastic with the others. When James first arrived he did have a little grumble at the other dogs at meal times but is fed in the same room as them now and has been fine. Around the house James can be fearful of noises outside and may bark to start with. Once he’s reassured he does stop and these episodes have reduced dramatically since he has familiarised himself with his home. In the garden he hasn’t tried to jump the fences but he is very much a terrier and does need secure fencing in case he sees a cat.

James isn’t keen on travelling in the car, due to a bad experience he had before coming into rescue earlier this year, when he was thrown out of one. He will pace and cry to start with but this is being worked on as he travels to work with his foster mum every day. Any adopter would have to continue to work on this area with him. This lad is very happy when he is with people. He adores cuddles and attention. His favourite place in the world is curled up in a tight ball next to you on the sofa. He loves being bathed and groomed too! He cannot cope with being left for long periods but a couple of hours at a time is fine. He is crate trained and although complains for a few minutes soon settles down to sleep.

James is a beautiful boy who is learning lots of skills in his foster home which will prepare him for a forever home. He is a lovely friendly dog who, with consistent training, will be a great fun companion.

We are looking for a terrier-experienced home looking for an energetic dog outside the house but cuddly dog inside the house. James has had a tough past and so any new adopter should be prepared to be patient and work through any issue that arise as he settles in. James is neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Prospective adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Crewe, Cheshire.

Jessie – 5 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Jessie deserves a family who understands and rejoices in her Staffordshire Bull Terrier affection. She would love her own garden or a secure area so she can enjoy play. Jessie seems to accept being left in the kennels. She is in good health and has just a few hard pads on her elbows and a few age-related lumps. Jessie needs to be an only pet to assure her security and stability.

Jessie was found stray and unclaimed; she wore a collar with ‘Jessie’ written on it. She has been mixed within the ‘pound pack’ and with other Staffies. Jessie has been spayed, chipped and first vax’d. She is in Broxbourne Kennels.

Jessie is very feminine. She bustles along and has a habit of wanting to hold the lead in her mouth as she seems bothered by its presence; it is perhaps a new thing for her. She meets dogs well and can relate well but she ‘beelines’ to her humans as her focus of affection. Giving affection is as important to Jessie as receiving it. Her housetraining seems intact. Jessie enjoys travelling; she is a ‘chatty Cathy’ with her little snorts and mumbling: possibly a pure bred Stafford.

Jessie is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier around five years old. She was overweight and had hard pads on her elbows and doesn’t look like she has had much exercise. She is looking more trim these days. We do believe she could be an off-lead dog but her new owners would need to first prove she was ‘bombproof’ if challenged by another dog. Jessie is a darling with a laughing smile to win over any heart.

Stella – 9 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Stella needs a loving family around her who values her for the treasure she is. Stella needs to be an only pet. She would love access to a secure off-lead area or her own secure garden. Stella can get concerned being left but does manage if she is settled first and then given a graded programme. Stella would be great with children, as she is ever ready to play… Her family will just need awareness about exit management so she doesn’t inadvertently get out of the front door or back gate.

Stella was found stray and unclaimed; her chip details did not bring any response. We offered her a rescue place; Stella is now neutered and vax’d as well as chipped. Stella is in foster in Romford as an only dog.
