Vera is a 3 year old female Yorskhire Terrier. Vera has been used as a breeding dog, but unlike most she is quite confident in the home and would be best homed either with one other small, very calm laid back dog or possibly as an only dog in the right home. She is doing really well with her house training and sleeps well in her crate at night (she is clean overnight). She will need further training with her lead walking but is progressing well.
Vera would like new owners who are around for most of the day and who want a dog that is going to stick to them like glue. She wants to be with you all the time so care should be taken that she does not over bond. A home with adults and visiting children would be okay for Vera.
Although she is in foster with several other dogs she will not tolerate a dog jumping on her or invading her space, she is very good and gives ample warning that she is not happy with them but if they push her she will have a snap. She doesn’t have many teeth so it really is all noise and no substance. She can also be very jealous of the other dogs receiving affection so owners who understand dogs would be best.
She is a little poppet who loves nothing better than to be curled up on your lap having a cuddle, she travels well in the car and is so tiny (just 2kg) that she will make an idea companion.
Vera has been neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped and had her flea and worming treatment. She is currently on foster in Aldershot Hampshire.READ MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...
Poor April was left abandoned and alone in a house when her owners moved out! Luckily for her she was found by a very kind man who did his best to ensure that she was safe and well looked after. April is a very nervous girl who so wants to love you but is very fearful. She is terrified of other dogs and screams when they go near her.
She is slowly improving in foster and did today initiate a little play with another small dog. April cannot be homed with children as she will snap at them because of her fear. She needs an adult home with new owners who are around most of the day and preferably a calm gentle playmate to show her the way.
She enjoys her walks and is clean in the house. This little girl has a long way to go and will need owners who understand fearful dogs. With time and patience she is going to become and adorable little girl who will be a devoted and loyal companion.
April has been neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped and had her flea and worming treatment. She is currently on foster in Aldershot Hampshire.

Nina is a very sweet little girl. She is a smart pup though and will need owners able to exercise not just her body but mind also. Obviously being a pup she will pee, poop, chew your furniture and most probably your fingers as this is what pups do. Please consider fully that you can commit possibly the next 15 years to her before applying. She looks very cute now but he needs commitment for the rest of her life.
Her house training is a work in progress as is the lead training just as you would expect from a pup. She is a little sweetie who with time, patience and training will grow into a well behaved social pet. Nina will need new owners who are around for most of the day and who will train her correctly and with kindness. As she is so young she should be fine to be homed with cats and other dogs. Older sensible children please.
Nina has been vaccinated, micro chipped and had his flea and worming treatment. He will need to neutered at the correct age as part of the adoption agreement (reduced cost neutering is available at our vets). He is currently on foster in Guildford Surrey.

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,
CocoREAD MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...

UPDATE: Mia has arrived in her foster home and at first glance she doesn’t seem bothered with the cats and was fine with the resident dog how ever Mia is just trying to assert her dominance over the resident dog and this has cause a few little handbags no injuries just noise so potential adopters would need to allow a few days to settle and Mia is now accepting her place in the pack and getting on okay with the resident dog and to top things off shes doing great with the cats too.

Buddy and Bailey are a bonded pair of boxers who have come to nrbr due to a change in circumstances they are both good with other dogs and great with people. Buddy is a brindle boy and he is 4 years old, bailey is a lovely red girl and she is 3 years old. Buddy and bailey being young are quite bouncy so would be better homed with older children 8+ and would need to be homed together. They have gone to a foster home further up dates to follow:
UPDATE: We have been having a great time getting to know Buddy & Bailey over the last 24 hours. They are such a sweet pair & we’re now starting to see the mischievous boxer side coming out of them both too. We’ve been on plenty of walks already and Bailey is like a little steam train! She likes to be leader of the pack when walking & Buddy is happy to let her be there. Both could do with some lead work, which we will try and work with and Buddy is already responding well to direction but at the moment, they need someone with a strong arm.
We have come across a few other dogs on our walks and both Buddy & Bailey are relatively unphased, a courteous glance and they are happy to carry on their way. We have also come across a particularly grumpy Labrador, 2 very loud German Shepherd’s and a snarly snappy Cockapoo, all of whom were met with indifference (we had quite and air of arrogance walking past the other owners!). They also seem to be really good with horse’s, bikes and traffic. Unfortunately the poor little loves were subjected to an unannounced firework display last night, which they did not like at all. There was no destruction or accidents but they made some very distressed howls and barking, this wasn’t very nice to observe and they did settle down after about half an hour but they remained a little jumpy for the rest of the evening, shooting up and barking at noises outside.
Bailey loves to play and seems to be the main instigator, they play beautifully together, they really do have such a lovely bond. They are very excepting of Murphy but Bailey get’s very vocal when the boy’s start wrestling. Buddy could be a potential escape risk, he tries to dart out of the door first everytime one is opened – He even ran in to the French doors yesterday when he was in such a rush – I bet that hurt! But we are getting them to sit & wait when we open the doors to see if we can stop his manic escape attempts. We also had the vacuum cleaner out for the first time today and they were absolutely fine, which is great as I think the vacuum cleaner is going to be out a lot – 3 boxers = 3 times the mess! Feel like they’re settling well which is great, they’ve found their spot on the sofa so for now we have very happy pups!READ MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...
Jessy is a 1 year old female German Shepherd Cross . Jess is a sensitive, sweet natured immature, adolescent pleaser. She came into the country from Croatia where she had a poor start. She was thrown from a car. She is a very small German Shepherd cross about the size of Springer. She needs a special quiet home, as she is rather nervous with new people. She is in no way snappy or aggressive. She will require a quietish area as she is still unhappy in heavy traffic, although travels well in the car with her people. Her recall is pretty good as she doesn’t go far. After a while doggy school would be good when settled.
Jessie can be left for 3-4 hours, she is being crated. She travels very well by car however in spite of the past. She will blossom to be a kindly quiet little girl in the proper home with gentle quiet people. She likes a couple of walks per day. Can cat test if required.

She comes spayed vacc and with passport.READ MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...
Molly is an 11 year old male English Cocker Spaniel. Molly is a beautiful girl who can be nervous in some situations and needs a special family who have the patience to leave her alone until she comes to trust them. The worst thing you can do is stroke her on the head before she has accepted you as family. She forms a very strong bond with family and friends who have been introduced to her correctly and is a very loyal dog. She has a lot to offer the family who want to give her a chance.
She was brought up in pubs and might have been encouraged to guard the residential part so she will bark at people approaching the front door and if left to her own devices won’t let them in. She is nervous of noisy things like hair dryers and vacuums. So when vacuuming, we leave the door open so she can go to another room. She gets a bit stressed when big things (like the ironing board) are moved around; again just let her leave the room so she doesn’t get fraught. Molly looks like a puppy/adolescent dog and has the energy levels of a young dog. Walking two or three miles is a stroll for her; if you made it five or six she would still be leading you along, wanting to explore every bush and door she passed.
Her previous owners told us that she had received a lot of training and much of this can be seen. She will not get up on a bed or a chair in the house – she has been known to when she goes out to eat at the pub or at the auction room but those chairs she doesn’t regard as house chairs. To give her a good cuddle you have to get on the floor. Although she gets very excited when one of us comes in, she has been trained to go to her bed and then she gets petted. Her toilet training is excellent and she has never ‘been’ in the house. She responds to her name, sit, drop it, bed and bad dog. She understands ‘down’ but we have never been able to get her to do it at a distance. When she is on a scent trail and can’t hear you call her, just whistle and she will turn and return to you.
Her basic nature is to be fearful of people she does not know and for this reason strangers have to be careful with her. You can see her shake with fear in stressful situations, she will even try to get on your lap in a strange vets. When she is like this, put her muzzle on her so that she can be examined otherwise she will snap at the vet. Because she is such a beautiful looking dog people will try to stroke her. We try to explain to people that she is like an old fashioned English lady; there is a sense of propriety. Proper introductions have to be made, she doesn’t like strangers invading her personal space; she will go to them when she is ready. Growling is another of her features. Her tail is docked so she can’t signal when she is getting stressed so she growls. With people she knows it means “Stop cleaning my ears” or “I’m tired stop playing with me and let me sleep in peace”. With strangers it is a warning that they are too close to her. She will guard resources, food in particular, and growl if she thinks you are taking it from her or teasing her with it.
If you think you could offer Molly her forever home, please get in touch Molly would love to hear from you.
Molly has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped. She is currently on foster in SE18 London.READ MORE ABOUT THIS DOG...
I would like to introduce you to Sasha, she is just 2-3 year old female German Shepherd cross Malamute and looking for her new home. She does need to receive more training on the lead, walking and some more basic commands. She would suit living with a dog or being the only dog.
Unfortunately she is not keen on cats so a cat free home is a must. A lovely friendly girl which would thrive in a home, with plenty of love and attention. Sasha is also good with younger children from 5 years onwards too. Although a little bouncy she will be an amazing girl in the right home.
