Cedric – 9 month old male Rottweiler

Please meet Cedric! Cedric is an adorable 9 month old Rottweiler who despite living in horrendous living conditions, is the sweetest, most placid dog you could wish to meet. Cedric is fantastic with dogs, people and children. He doesn’t pay any attention to our ducks and chickens and seems uninterested in cats.

 

Cedric will need a home with an older dog to give him the confidence he needs in situations he finds scary (such as passing traffic). He will need a home who can reassure him in these worried moment and build his confidence. Saying that, once he knows you and feels confident, he is a wriggly, funny little puppy! He is clean in his kennel and despite being starved, has no issues around food.

Cedric can live with children aged 6 and over, he loves children and would love to be part of a family. Cedric has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Cedric is a shining example of his breed, loyal, loving and such a sweet and gentle nature, despite all he has been through!

George – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Collie

George is a 4 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Collie who has been in Jerry Green Dog Rescue care for over 18 months now, ever so patiently waiting for a new place to call home. He is a very special boy and is very much loved by all the staff but we would love him to find his forever home. George is a very friendly boy who loves human attention and is looking forward to meeting his new family.

He loves fuss and cuddles and is a loyal and affectionate dog. He is enjoys training and he would LOVE to find someone who will play games with him to keep his busy mind occupied. He especially loves squeaky toys and teddy bears and he likes to splosh around in the pond here.

George adores people and could live with reasonably robust as he can be a little boisterous when he’s excited.

He loves to go out walking and enjoys meeting new people. When he arrived at Jerry Green he was very nervous of other dogs, but we have been doing a lot of training with him here at the centre. He is now confident enough to walk happily alongside his canine friends, but would prefer to be the only pet in the house. We are more than happy to give on-going guidance and support with regards to this.

He will make a fantastic, fun-loving companion for an active family – please contact the centre today if he sounds like the one for you!

Murphy – 2 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Murphy is a 2 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross. He’s a gorgeous gent with a copious amount of enthusiasm but he combines this with a lovely and affectionate, if somewhat high-energy, temperament. He adores treats and will do whatever you ask in order to obtain one, unless of course there’s a squashed football involved which he likes even more!

He’s a very sociable boy who gets on swimmingly with other pooches, and would be thrilled to live in a home with existing dogs – though no other animals, please! He’d also be best suited to a family with children over the age of fifteen.

However, whoever adopts Murphy must be willing to put plenty of time, effort, and energy into his training as he can be a bit of a handful. Nevertheless he’s a lovable, soft, handsome guy, with much to offer the right owner.

Misty – 4 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Misty is a four-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross, and if you were looking for one word to sum her up it would be ‘playful’. Two words? ‘really playful’. Three, even? ‘Really, really playful’. In fact, if you happened to be flicking through the dictionary and looked under the word “playful” you would no doubt find a picture of Misty grinning right back at you!

Her spirited, bouncy nature is never better illustrated than when she’s greeting people or when she’s playing with her toys, which generally involves her rolling about joyfully like she hasn’t got a care in the world! Combine this with her characteristic smile and striking white and brindle colouration, and you have a dog that has a pretty face to match up with her lovable temperament! As long as you can provide charming Misty with the fuss, attention, and energy that she both needs and deserves, then you will find her to be a truly wonderful addition to your household.

Unfortunately Misty would be unsuitable for households with existing animals, and anyway how could she ever go to a home where she would be anything but the centre of attention! She would however be well matched with any family whose children are aged 10 years or older, or a single-person household, or with an elderly owner – on the basis that they are active and able to give Misty the exercise she needs.

Max – 4 year old male Yorkshire Terrier

Hello, my name is Max. I’m a four year old male Yorkshire Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owners felt they could no longer had the time to look after me. I’m an active, vocal and out-going boy. I can be grumpy with some dogs but I’m always very friendly with people and I’ll happily approach strangers for a scratch behind the ear. I’m toilet-trained, I travel well in the car and I know the basic commands.

I’m very playful and I love nothing more than playing with squeaky toys, but I prefer to be left alone to play with them by myself. I also love going to the park. Super affectionate, I always enjoy snuggling up close for love and attention. I have a heart murmur but at present it doesn’t require any medication.

I’m now looking for a forever home with an experienced person or family who have owned dogs before, ideally feisty terrier types. Someone living in a rural or semi-rural home, where I can be exercised without coming into constant contact with lots of other dogs. I can live with sensible teenagers who are used to being around dogs 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 and I wouldn’t be suitable to live in a flat. My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes 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,

Max

Max – 7 year old male Cross-Breed

Max is a 7 year old white and tan cross-breed who was originally brought to the rescue in 2010 because his owners were disabled and couldn’t care for him.  Max was always a nervous boy who struggled to cope with stress, but after going to two homes and finally ending up back at the rescue, Max’s confidence has reached an all time low.  He is a loving boy here, with an endearing, fun character that we have all grown to love.  Indeed Max is one of the favourites of many of our dog walkers and quite possibly one of the most requested dogs to walk!

Max is a lovely, affectionate boy once he’s learned to trust you but he is wary of strangers at first and needs to be given time to accept them.  Max is great with dogs and has lived with many here (he is better with females), but does sometimes bark at them to begin with.  He is so affectionate and playful and just a joy to spend time with here.  He adores the staff and will lick you to death!  Max has such a sensitive side and has the makings to be the most loyal dog you could possibly find!

Max 1

Max needs a calm, experienced home where there are no young children.  He will take time to settle and he may struggle accepting visitors so he may initially need shutting in another room when visitors come round, until he has settled down and you know him properly.  He will make a wonderful, affectionate friend to the right home, he just needs to be given a chance.  Once Max trusts you he is your friend for life.  It is a sign of a very loyal dog, the fact that he waits to get to know and trust you before he lets his lovely character shine through.  He will be a devoted friend.

A note from Max’x dog walkers – Harriet & George (and Inca & Blue!) –

No dog should end up in a shelter, but with some, once they’re there, you can sometimes understand why they have difficulty being adopted due to various behavioral or health issues. Max is not one of those dogs. I am baffled every day when I think of how Max could be overlooked for so long; he is friendly, although can be timid/insecure at times, he has been great with other dogs when we have walked him, great on walks, great in the car… Just great! And yet he still hasn’t found a loving forever home. We have been walking Max ever since our little Harry (who those who met him will remember) became ill, and we love him dearly.

Max 2

Max deserves a great home; an owner who is active and could take him on lots of walks, running and hiking regularly would be ideal as he has boundless energy. He is also very bright and would do well where he can be intellectually challenged.  The only thing to be aware of is that on the lead he gets over excited when he sees some dogs and can bark and pull in an attempt to greet them, this means that he comes across as over the top and some dogs don’t appreciate it.  He is a fantastic dog!

We would love to take Max home forever, and if he is still wanting a home next year we will, but keeping him waiting for us would be extremely selfish of us. So if anyone can give him a loving forever home with the exercise, stimulation and love he deserves, please do.

Lavinia – 5 year old female Mastiff cross Great Dane

Lavinia needs stability with an empathetic family who are comfortable with large breeds. She needs to be an only dog/pet at this stage. There is no edge to her around food, space, intrusive gestures or intervention. Lavinia is not proven to live with children. Her confidence will come from her owner. Lavinia’s tail was partially amputated whilst previously in rescue.

Lavinia was found stray and unclaimed. She has been spayed, fully vax’d & chipped. She was homed for nine months but her previous owner had to move and couldn’t take Lavinia with him.

Lavinia is great in every sense of the word. She meets strangers with kind caution in her eyes and isn’t over demonstrative until she trusts: then she is joyful and close. Lavinia can lift her paws onto your shoulders but only in the gentlest and most considerate way; if she feels in the mood for ‘fun’ then she’s up for that alright. Lavinia is house-trained and travels well in the car: she will look, noting and seeing it all, with no comment. Lavinia can be left free range in her house. She is the perfect companion.

Lavinia has a lavender-mauve brindle coat with the softest feel. She has a white bib and lovely jowls which suggests Great Dane heritage. She is about five years old. She stands 24″+ to her shoulder/withers. Lavinia has a great temperament with people, strangers and dogs. She needs supportive measures around children; her previous owners gave her up after nine months as they moved in with a young child and didn’t have full faith in Lavinia or their own skills with a large dog. Lavinia’s confidence will reflect her owner’s comfortability. Super duper dog!

Interested in homing Lavinia? Please click to complete our online homing questionnaire so we can match you with a dog that suits your lifestyle.

Please note that this dog is currently in boarding kennels and is also available to foster until a ‘forever home’ is found.

Please visit Lavinia’s thread on our forum to find out whether she is still available. For full details and daily updates on all our dogs available for homing, click our forum link.
