Pedro needs a supportive family who are ready to lift him up into their care. Pedro would prefer an ‘at home’ companion and needs to be around his humans in an inclusive home life. He would be happiest having all his family’s love to himself. Pedro will require a day in London in early 2015 to have knee bolts removed. The Rescue will absorb the cost of this post-op procedure. We recommend that adopters retain their new dog on a lead in order to support and safeguard it during encounters with other dogs.
Pedro came into our care when a kind dog warden approached our Rescue hoping we would give him his final chance; in her heart she thought it was probably too much to ask. Pedro was a stray and presented with a terrible knee that needed urgent surgery; he must have been in pain all his life. Our vet offered us an amazing treatment price to save his life and thankfully the rest is history. Pedro is now neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. He is fostered in Tunbridge Wells.
Pedro shines Love. He is now experiencing a pain-free life thanks to our vets. We discovered that Pedro didn’t understand what a lead was and we believe he had been crated most of his young life. He is now enjoying his walks and has only a little less gusto than when he first walked forwards with a knee that actually worked! Pedro needs attention with his housetraining; this should be achieved quickly in a companion home, as previously proved during a short one-week foster placement. Pedro travels well crated. He is a happy chappie.
Pedro is a small white Staffordshire Bull Terrier with button eyes and a huge smile. He is ‘busy’ and loves to explore. He has nearly recovered from his complex knee surgery but will need two bolts removed in January-February 2015 by our vet in West Croydon. Rescue Remedies will pay for this. We don’t want this to hold Pedro back – we are all hoping he will be settled into his forever home before Christmas!

Sasha and Doodles – 6 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier and 13 year old female Jack Russell cross Dachshund
Sasha and Doodles’ new owners will have an interest in both dogs, see that their needs are met, and ensure that each is cherished more than the other. They will both enjoy a garden. Sasha and Doodles have grown up with children and have always been around them. We are unsure how they would settle with other pets. Doodles’ skin can periodically become inflamed due to an allergy; this may need veterinary oversight. Doodles will need attention with her housetraining. We recommend that adopters retain their new dogs on leads in order to support and safeguard them during encounters with other dogs.
This sweet pair lost their home when their family had to move. They were delivered to us in an emergency by the family’s social worker and their 12 year old son, who was a baby when Doodles arrived in their home as a puppy. Sasha and Doodles are neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. They are currently in foster in Tunbridge Wells.
Sasha and Doodles are different breeds, ages, and energies but are so close in every other way. Both travel well and can be left, providing they are together. Doodles will start the walk but then returns to the house to be left in peace whilst Sasha journeys farther. Doodles can also be carried, but care is necessary, as other dogs will jump up to a dog in arms. Sasha and Doodles travel together, sleep together, and are forever content.
Doodles is a 13 year old Jack Russell cross Dachshund, and Sasha is a seven year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Doodles is a little old lady and is easy to pick up and cuddle – if Sasha doesn’t rush in first! This pair is a wonderful, amazing choice and will give your family the opportunity to explore the very best of both breeds; they are wonderful examples. This is a magic couple – we couldn’t say no to taking them in. Their forever family will never regret stepping forward for this couple. The pleasure will all be yours!

Sadie is an easy Staffordshire Bull Terrier, perfect for a first time Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog family. She is proven with children. Sadie needs a compassionate family. She once had a cancerous growth on her foot and although it has fully cleared and there is no sign of its return, it could come back. Our vet in South London will offer “rescue rate” services should that happen, although the disease’s return is unlikely. We recommend that adopters retain their new dog on a lead in order to support and safeguard it during encounters with other dogs.
Sadie was found stray with a tumour on her back right foot. The dog warden didn’t think any Rescue would take her on, but asked us out of compassion. The tumour was removed and there has been no sign of its return since June 2014 so she seems clear. Sadie is now spayed, chipped and vaccinated. Sadie is fostered in Aldershot with children.
Lady Sadie is such a bright star. Sadie has it all; she is affectionate, kind, doesn’t leap up, and is such fun to be with. Sadie is housetrained and we are sure she came from a good background. She can be left but deserves to be included in family activities. Sadie meets dogs well outside. Sadie definitely had her fans when she was in kennels. The volunteer dog walkers loved her to bits.
Sadie is a black-brindle lickle Staffie. She has a huge smile and wants you to be the centre of her world. She takes everything in her stride; in kennels she was cheerful and settled in her bed when left. In foster she is respectful and loves to relax or be active beside you whatever you are doing. Sadie is a people pleaser!

Hello, my name is Bunny. I’m a seven year old female Jack Russell Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner decided to emigrate. I’m sweet-natured and affectionate girl. I get along well with everyone I meet and I’ll happily greet strangers – I’m always on the lookout for someone to give me cuddles! I’m not very keen on other dogs, I can be a little grumpy around them and I’ll tell them off if they harass me. I’m toilet-trained, well-behaved, I know the basic commands which I respond well to and I travel well in the car.
I’m a playful and out-going dog and I always enjoy a good game with my toys and chasing after a ball but most of all I like to curl up on people’s laps. I also enjoy a good back scratch. At night-time I like to be tucked into bed with a blanket placed over me. When I first arrived at The Mayhew I had very sore skin but with medication it’s now much better and I feel a lot more comfortable.
I’m now looking for a forever home with a person or family who have owned dogs before. I can live with sensible children from ten years of age and upwards 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 alone for 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 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 eight year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.
I hope to see you soon,

Hello, my name is Poppy. I’m a ten month old female Siberian Husky and Golden Retriever crossbreed. I arrived at The Mayhew because I wasn’t getting on with the cat I was living with. I’m an active and friendly girl. I get along well with everyone I meet and I also get along very well with other dogs and I enjoy meeting up with them for a play in the park.
I’m toilet-trained, I know the usual commands which I respond well to, I can be left home alone for a couple of hours without any problems and I travel well in the car. I love playing with my toys, I often like to hide them in the garden and then I have great fun finding them again. My favourite toy is a ball on a rope. I also like to chase after birds in the park. I’m a very affectionate dog and I always enjoy a good tummy rub.

Hello, my name is Bay. I’m a two year old female German Shepherd and Greyhound crossbreed. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner was no longer able to look after me. I’m an active, friendly and sweet-natured girl and I get along very well with everyone I meet. I also get along well with other dogs, although I can be a little too full-on and boisterous for some dogs.
I’m toilet-trained, I travel well in the car, I can be left home alone for three to four hours without any problems and I know the usual commands which I respond well to. I’m very affectionate and I love nothing more than snuggling up close for love and attention and I always enjoy having my belly rubbed. I also enjoy playing with my toys and chasing after a ball.
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 ten years of age and upwards who are used to being around dogs but I’ll need to be the only pet in the home. 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.
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,

Please meet Shiloh!! Shiloh is an approximately 18 month old German shepherd who has had the most horrendous start in life. She has grown up confined in a large crate and as a result had muscle wastage in her back legs. When we picked her up, she had been left abandoned with other dogs without food and water for over a week. Poor Shiloh could barely support her own weight on her back legs, despite being so emaciated she weighed almost nothing. Since her arrival she has been on medication to support her recovery and we have been building up her muscle tone to a point where she now runs and plays like a puppy. She has now been given a great prognosis although may suffer with arthritis in her twilight years.
Despite such a terrible start in life. Shiloh is the most loving, loyal and faithful companion you could wish to meet. She adores everyone she meets, humans and dogs alike. She has great recall offlead and is clean in her kennel. Shilohs new family will need to commit to continuing her recovery by continuing on lead walks on grassy areas as well as time offlead to run and play. She will also need to attend a follow up appointment with her specialist in Oxted, Surrey approximately 6 weeks after rehoming, which will be at a cost of £75.00. Shiloh will be vaccinated and neutered before leaving for her new home.
Shiloh will need to live with a resident (not visiting) dog for companionship and play, or she can be homed her best friend Frodo (see our website) whom she dotes on. Shiloh cannot live with cats but can live with children. Whoever is lucky enough to adopt this beautiful girl will have the most amazing and wonderful companion in Shiloh. You could not ask for a more sweet natured girl!!READ MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...
Bambi is a 6 year old Pomeranian girly. She has come into rescue through no fault of her own and has been a very much loved pet since a baby with the same family. She has been in foster living in a family home with two older children, 3 dogs and a cat. I can only describe this girl as just lovely I cannot think of anything negative to say about her. She is everything you would want in a dog, walks well on the lead and off the lead, travels well in the car, friendly with people and children of all ages, no problems with the cat we just love her we call her our little tumble weed as with her big fluffy coat that is what she looks like when she lays down.
She has a lovely cheeky little personality which has come out the longer she has been with us, she loves playing and making funny faces, she has been doing fast runs around the garden today and rolling on the mud, she loves racing off with my dogs in the woods and has got the hang of chasing or looking for the squirrels. She sleeps with kids at night in fact Saturday night my son who is 13 had his friends round for sleep over and Bambi had a sleep over with them too just lovely.
I think she will make me cry when she leaves us but getting to know this special girl so well and knowing what pleasure and companionship she is going to be bring to someone I know there is someone out there who will make that connection with her who is that special home who Bambi with her sweet ways will make a real difference to their lives. She is obviously able to settle into any sort of home but knowing her so well now I want her to go to a retired person or couple either as an only dog or with another gentle soul like her, someone who can take her on her walks in the park, fields, somewhere where she will be not be left hours on her own.
She does not need long walks and hours of it but she does love going out, she has loved pottering around the garden with me this weekend and has just laid their watching me with the other dogs and sniffing around, she enjoys her trips in the car, also someone who will let her sleep with them she just loves being with people. She has been left as I do work part time and she is fine being left with no problems at all by the way. She has a big heart this little girl and I have promised her to get her the right home. Bambi has been spayed, is chipped and fully vaccinated.READ MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...

Harpo and Zeppo need a patient and caring family to offer them support whilst they settle into a new home environment. They need a secure garden and careful exit management, with no doors or gates left open, as with all terriers. Harpo and Zeppo are a harmonious couple but need a family who understands ‘two dog chemistry’. Zeppo needs management around off-lead dogs as he gets flustered if rushed. Harpo suffers from weepy eyes and needs periodic treatment. Harpo and Zeppo could live with another dog and are proven with cats.
Harpo and Zeppo’s start in life was neglectful; they lived in squalor in a back garden and neighbours reported their situation to the dog warden. Their former owners are now being prosecuted. Harpo and Zeppo have been in foster since their arrival in early summer 2013. They are neutered, chipped and vaccinated. Harpo and Zeppo are fostered with another foster dog, and were with a dominant cat, in Kingston upon Thames.
Harpo and Zeppo are Marx brothers whose humorous natures will have you in stitches. They are mutually reliant on one another and need to stay together. They may have very rare accidents in the house when due care and attention isn’t applied or they are stressed. Harpo and Zeppo now welcome human approaches and show just how loving they are; Harpo is a tad nervous with new people. They enjoy the best quality food. They are a delightful duo.
Harpo and Zeppo may be Jack Russell Terrier crosses and are around four years old. They are both 12″ to the shoulder and just six kilograms in weight. They have Border Terrier-like coats. Harpo’s coat is red grizzle and Zeppo’s red grizzle with a black muzzle. Each has his unique character and both are extremely loving and tolerant of each other’s needs. They enjoy walks out on the streets and parks, and have adjusted well with exposure to new experiences. They are a wonderful pair who promise to reward any family with a rescue heart.

He is not for cats, feathers or small furries. Bobby meets dogs well but would prefer to be an only pet. He is proven to live with children.
Bobby grew up in a family where there was a lot of emotional trauma; he helped them as a comforter but couldn’t go with them into the accommodation offered. He is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Bobby is fostered as an only dog in Lowestoft, Suffolk, in a home with one child.
Bobby entered our Rescue as a pampered, overweight pooch. He has been waking up to exercise, walks, meeting new people, and chugging along with other dogs outside. Bobby has taken it all in his stride. He has gained confidence, slimmed down, and has many friends. He is very happy in transit, housetrained, and happily helps out in the kitchen. Bobby enjoys a healthy diet with all its nutrients; meanwhile his waistline has receded and with this, Bobby has regained his youthful vigour!
Bobby is a five year old Patterdale cross Jack Russell Terrier. He loves his foster family and beach walks too. He is trim and healthy now. Bobby loves his new life with all its new opportunities. What a character – every bit the terrier!

This lovely little lady is Poppet, a 2-year old brindle Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Whippet, who is being fostered in Melksham, Wiltshire. This waggy-tailed missy loves to give “High Fives”. Poppet loves to cuddle up with you when you watch the TV. She is always happy to see you and loves nothing more than a good run off the lead. She likes chewing on deer antler and beef feet! Poppet is looking for an active family – she has a lot of energy! She is a waggy tailed bundle of fun. She is house-trained and has no problems in the home. Poppet is not at all aggressive or destructive and she shows no dominant tendencies with her food or toys. She likes to chew – deer antler is her chew toy of choice!
Poppet travels well and has no problems at all at the vets. She is fine with dogs she knows or has been introduced to properly but needs further socialisation training – she is currently wearing a muzzle when out on a walk as she can be fearful. She has never shown any signs of aggression in the home – she will bark if nervous but that is all. Loud noises can startle her but otherwise Poppet has no problems in the home at all. She is happy to be touched and loves a cuddle.
Poppet loves children of all ages and is fine with cats and tortoises! She is fine with the ladies but some men can make her a little fearful. She is lead trained and finds walks very exciting. She no longer pulls but hasn’t mastered walking to heel yet. Poppet can be a bit nervous of large dogs when she is out for walks.
Poppet can be left for short periods– maximum of 4 hours. We are working on her being crated, but this is ongoing and something her adopters will have to carry on with. She is a lovely dog who is just looking for a family to be part of. She would be best with an experienced, active family who are home most of the day and prepared to continue with her training.
Poppet is neutered, wormed, micro-chipped, flea treated and fully vaccinated. Prospective adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in Melksham, Wiltshire.
If you are interested in adopting Poppet please read about our rehoming process and complete a Pre-Adoption form ( link here ) and one of our adoption coordinators will contact you for a chat.READ MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...
