Popeye – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hello, my name is Popeye. I’m a four year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner was evicted from their home. I’m a friendly, sensitive and sweet-natured chap. I can be shy of strangers but it doesn’t take long for me to make friends with people who are calm and gentle with me.

I’m super affectionate with people that I know and trust and I always enjoy a good tummy rub. I have a habit of lifting my paw to invite people to scratch my tummy. I’m toilet trained and also I know the basic commands which I respond well to. I love going to the park and get along well with other dogs I meet out and about. I also enjoy playing with my 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 children from sixteen years of age and upwards but I’d prefer to be the only pet in the home. It’s not yet known how long I cope being left home alone 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 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 an eleven year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,

Popeye

Coco – 3 year old female Shih Tzu

Hello, my name is Coco. I’m a three year old female Shih Tzu. I arrived at The Mayhew due to my owner’s ill health. I’m a friendly and sweet-natured girl and I get along well with everyone I meet. I’m toilet trained, I travel well in the car and I know the basic commands which I respond well to.

I love going to the park and I get along well with other dogs, although I can be easily intimidated by large or boisterous dogs. I enjoy playing with my toys but most of all I like to cuddle up close for love and attention.

I’m now looking for a forever home with a person or family who have owned dogs before and have researched my breed type. I can live with sensible teenagers 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. I’ve been known to bark when I’m left home alone so I’d like to find a home where there is someone around for most of the day. I wouldn’t be suitable to live in a flat.

My new owners will be expected to provide me with a minimum of one hour of 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 twelve year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,

Coco

Jem – 4-5 month old male Retriever Cross

Little Jem is 4-5 month old male Retriever Cross. He was born in rescue with 8 brothers and sisters his mum is a Golden Retriever/small lurcher type and we think Jem will be medium size. 5 of his siblings have now found homes in Spain and 3 are now left and old enough to travel to UK to start looking for their forever homes.

Lovely friendly puppy he has been well socialized with other dogs, people and a cat although out of the 3 of them he is the most interested in the cat so needs to be a more confident cat. He can now walk on the lead, its quite rural where he lives so they will find it a bit scary at first adjusting to new noises, traffic etc but still only babies. He is crate trained too.

Jem is a loving boy and loves his cuddles, like his brother but he is the livelier one of the 3, he can still be racing around while the others are sleeping, he is extremely bright so would suit a home which enjoy training.

Roger – 18 month old male Yorkshire Terrier Cross

Lovely Roger was living in Spain in terrible conditions and was in a real mess with his coat and so thin when rescued by some angels. When I first got to Spain last week I popped into Auntie Sherlies on the way from the Airport for a cuppa and to say hi and there was Mr Roger or Mr what about Me Me Me as soon as I walked in, he craved the attention and love bless him, he would not stop staring at me, there is always one that seems to do that, the one who pushes himself forward over everyone else.

This little dog craves attention, love and fuss, I felt so sorry for him as he is sharing his space with 18 odd other dogs so difficult to give him that one to one, I took him out for a coffee and he just loved it, this boy is desperate for love and his own family or person if you are looking for a lovely little dog who wants nothing more than to be with you, to sit on your lap and cuddle you and adore you and be your little companion then he is your boy.

He is not particularly fussed about the other dogs, he gets on fine with all of them but once he is on your lap he will see them off as he wants all the attention so would be best as an only dog. He walked fine on the lead bless him, was a bit unsure in the car but soon settled down. Just loved Mr Roger, I did a video of him below. Roger is neutered, fully vaccinated, chipped and has his own pet passport.

Diego – 10 month old male Lurcher

Lovely Diego another stray and very similar to a dog we had a while ago called Cody this boy could be his brother although younger and slightly more crazy. Found on the streets of Spain he has not let life faz him I had heard stories about this boy before I arrived, how the people who run the Refuge kept finding dogs had got out of kennels and then they saw Diego had worked out how to open the door and he would let everyone out.

This dog has no malice in him at all he is like a big puppy, he loves everyone and is another dog who craves affection and fuss, you cannot see clearly from the pictures but he is slightly rough coated.

Loved this boy with his big personality and lovely character, as lovely and bright and clever as he is, he needs training and someone who has the room he is a big Galgo mix boy, someone who is used to big bouncy happy Lurcher types, someone with space for him to run and time to train him.

He is loved by all the volunteers and walks well on a lead, beautiful stunning dog and one to be proud off, just needs the right home who understand he thinks he is a lap dog. Diego is neutered, vaccinated and has his own passport.

Jordan – 2 year old male Cross-Breed

Jordon’s family will be willing to offer him the training a large dog requires and have the patience whilst he applies himself to learn. Jordon is still be ‘chewy’ but improving but expectations should be realistic. Jordon deserves a fair sized exercise area and ideally his own garden to express his fun-side in. Older children who have lived with a dog before who don’t mind sharing toys! Still very fluid and could share with other dog who is accepting of a puppydog who can get fluttered meeting the ‘new’. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog’s lives at greater risk.

Jordon was found stray in late 2013 as a young ‘teenagers’ Jordon is now a young adult. Jordon has been neutered, chipped and vaccinated. Jordon has enjoyed several short foster placements but currently in kennels in Broxbourne.

Jordon is an intelligent boy. Eager to befriend and play and still rather enthusiastic to lick your face on greeting but well judged and received well by people who see his heart burst with love. On encountering strangers Jordon can bark and step back but a little reassurance and he is close friends. Very easy to walk and he is like a ‘puppet on a string’ forwards and then turning and seeking approval. Travels well but again its obviously not a familiar activity for him: Jordon as led a very sheltered life.

Jordon is a lanky crossbreed about 24-25″ to the shoulder. Fawn and white, smooth haired, still losing his winter under coat. He has American Bull breed in his genetics there and Greyhound. He has the loving nature of the bull breed winning friends and the speed but he does seem very connected with his walker on his outings.

Minnie Moo – 6 month old female Dachshund cross Miniature Pinscher

One of 3 dogs that is being fostered by Auntie Sue. This little girl had a sad story, she was living rough in a garden centre for weeks and was so nervous nobody could get near her. Auntie Sue left a box with blankets for her to snuggle as it has been so cold and fed her for a few days, they then left a trap which eventually caught the scared little baby. She has been with Sue for quite a few weeks now and with her loving care has slowly come out of her shell, when I met her last week she was quite happy to say a gentle hello to me and Anne who comes to walk the dogs in the morning she waits by the window all excited as she knows she will get biscuits. She is still shy but will follow Sue around the house and especially loves the kitchen.

When Sue has been out when she comes back she gets really excited and barks. She is fine with the other dogs and is living with 6, she loves her walks and is fine now off the lead running with the rest but sometimes feels quite scared about coming back and looks frightened but with sausages this is improving. She continues to improve and is clean in the house and very settled. Minnie Moo has now been cat tested and did not bat an eye lid a little video taken of her with her foster mummy and her foster family.

She is a lovely little soul with no malice but will need a kind quiet owner who will continue the good work Sue has done with her, she will get there but may always be a shy of new people and situations. She will need a quiet home in maybe a rural area not a busy town or city.

Will keep her profile updated as she improves but any questions please feel free to ask. She will be spayed, full vaccinated, have her own pet passport. Please email us for our questionnaire in the first instance which answers our questions about you.
