Pepper – 3 year old male Dandie Dinmont Terrier Cross

Please meet pretty Pepper! Pepper is an approximately 3 year old Dandie Dinmont Terrier cross, He came into rescue when he was found as a stray and unclaimed after 7 days so was due to be put to sleep. Pepper is a very sweet adorable little fella that absolutely loves cuddles!! he loves nothing more than long walks, food and snuggling up with you.

Pepper is very shy at first so will need a quiet home where he can come to you in his own good time after a day to settle in he comes out of his shell and is an amazing little fella very typical of the breed. He will need an owner who knows the breed and grooming requirements etc, he will need regular clipping.

Pepper would love an adult only home as he is not used to children. He could live with other dogs and he is currently in foster with dogs of all shapes and sizes!. He is untested with cats but I think he would be fine with a dog savvy cat, he is castrated, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Can you love this little fella?


Flash – 6 year old male Jack Russell Terrier Cross

Hi my name is Flash and I’m a 6 year neutered old Jack Russell cross. I was handed over to Safe Rescue as my owner in the UK no longer wanted me. Not sure why exactly as I’m a lovely little chap who loves cuddles. I had very long claws when I came but I have been to the vets and had them cut, been microchipped, vaccinated and de-flead, wormed so I’m all set for my new home.

I get on fine with dogs in my foster home but would probably prefer to live with just one dog for company or on my own as enjoy the company of humans too. I’m perfectly fine with cats and children but would prefer calm children over the age of 8 to either live with or who visit. I am a happy little boy who is house trained and very excitable on the lead. If you want to find out more about me please get in touch.

Earl – 6 year old male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Poor Earl was abandoned along with his girlfriend on a cold wet night, thrown away like last weeks rubbish. Thankfully for us they were found and handed in. Earl is a very handsome charming boy who is a true delight to have around. This lad lives to love and loves to live. Earl is great with other dogs, cats, small furries and children. Travels well in the car, is clean in the house, all in all just about perfect by anyone’s standards. Earl would like new owners who are around for most of the day, he can be homed with or without another dog but must have human company.

When Earl came to us he was in a bit of a sorry state, he has been neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, had flea and worming treatments and an extensive dental. Poor Earl lost 20 of his teeth but this hasn’t stopped him eating. Earl is currently on foster in Guildford Surrey.


Beau – 9 month old male English Cocker Spaniel cross Poodle

Hello, my name is Beau. I’m a nine month old male English Cocker Spaniel cross Poodle. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner was travelling a lot a felt she no longer had the time to look after me properly. I’m a very active and bouncy chap but I also have a sensitive side; I can be shy of new people, occasionally barking at strangers but I’m always very friendly with people who take the time to say ‘hello’ to me. I get along very well with other dogs and I love nothing more than meeting up with them for a play and run around in the park. I’m toilet-trained and I travel well in the car. I’ve also learnt the basic commands, which I respond well to but I do need further training so I’ll need someone with plenty of time on their hands to continue my training and perfect my doggy manners.

I’m not keen on being left alone and I like to be included in everyday activities. I have been known to bark when left home alone. I’m a very affectionate chap and I’ll roll over to have my tummy tickled at a moment’s notice. I’m also very playful and I always enjoy a good game with my toys, I especially enjoy playing football. 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 providing they are used to being around bouncy dogs and I can live with another dog providing we’re the right match. I could also live with dog-confident cats that could tolerate my lively and playful nature and wouldn’t allow themselves to be chased. 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 continue my training, take me to training classes and 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 a fourteen year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,



Tiny – 7 year old male Yorkshire Terrier

Tiny is not a very fitting name for this lad as he is not a “tiny” Yorkshire Terrier. He has had a difficult time recently and is now looking for a new home with owners who are patient, gentle and understanding. Poor Tiny has had part of his tail amputated, he has also had to be completely shaved as his coat was in very poor condition. This will grow back in a short time and he feels so much happier and comfortable with his coat gone. He is a very nervous boy who needs owners who have the time to let him settle with no pressure, once he is happy he will come for fuss. He does like it on his own terms though and will grumble if he is picked up.

Tiny is fine with other dogs and can be re homed with others or as an only dog, he has lived with other dogs in the past. He really needs an adult only home with owners who are around for most of the time and who are able to give him the space he needs to feel secure. He lives for his ball so would suit an active retired owner. Tiny is clean in the house and can be left happily for short periods. He has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped, he has also had a dental. Tiny is currently on foster in Guildford Surrey.


Dre – 14 month old male Saluki Cross

Dre is a black and white Saluki cross who may not be the brightest bulb but makes up for his lack of brains with his playful character and adorable nature. Dre came into our care at the end of September at just 14 months of age along with his sister Daisy (also featured on here). Sadly their owner could no longer afford to feed them alongside the other 9 dogs in the home.

All the dogs were kept in kennels but have been well socialised around people and appear used to being around people indoors. We have every reason to believe they will adapt well to living in the home as they love lounging on the sofa in our office and making the most of the home comforts available. Dre is very clean in his kennel and waits until his walks to go to the toilet so we are confident that he will quickly pick up house training.

Dre is a beautiful boy who loves food, playing chase and squeaky balls. He is a little shy at first when meeting new people, or going to unknown places, but with the support of his sister he quickly brightens up and starts to enjoy himself. He does a wonderful impression of a buck-a-roo, parading around our paddock with his legs flying everywhere, tossing his squeaky ball in the air. His attention span isn’t very long so he quickly gets bored of his toys and directs his attention onto Daisy. He loves to chase her around the paddock and plays really rough with her like an over grown puppy: he snaps his teeth, pulls on her ears and generally makes a nuisance of himself but thankfully Daisy loves it.

Dre is lacking in confidence out on walks but on a harness and lead and following behind another dog he walks well. He enjoys sniffing everything and trying to pick up scraps of food on his way and is happy walking past traffic. He does, however, act defensively sometimes to passing people and dogs when out on walks. We believe he wasn’t exercised away from the home much as a pup and so needs help with his socialising skills. A weekly dog class would help him gain confidence around unknown dogs and people as he is happy to make new friends in environments he feels comfortable in. It is simply out on walks he sometimes feels threatened and barks.

Dre is a lovely boy who enjoys hugs and kisses and will happily follow his human friends anywhere with a treat. Currently he doesn’t know any commands but his willingness to learn and his obsession with treats should make it an easy task. Due to his lack of confidence and reliance on another dog we are looking to rehome Dre to live with either Daisy, pictured above, or an existing dog in the home, but due to his full-on playing style the dog would need to be extremely tolerant and happy to join in Dre’s puppy fights. Dre is also very greedy and will eat everything in sight so the other dog must be willing to let him!

We are looking for adopters who won’t be out of the house for more than 4 hours at a time and where any children are teenage, as both dogs have a tendency to jump up and run into your legs if you’re not paying attention during play time. Neither dog is suitable  to live with other animals; they both have high prey drives so we would recommend not letting them off lead in public areas and to consider muzzle training them.


Kurtis – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Kurtis is a lovely, handsome 4 year old black Staffordshire Bull Terrier boy who has been waiting for nearly a year for his new home and is now available for rehoming. He walks well on the lead and enjoys sitting for a tasty treat, although he’s not on a diet (having gained a few pounds). He loves cuddles and having his belly ticked.

He is looking for a new home where he is the only pet in an adult home with experienced owners. Please give Kurtis the chance to show you how much of a brilliant pet he could be. Come and get to know is cheeky personality!

He absolutely adores other dogs so could happily live with a companion, a female of similar size would be perfect! He can live with children from 5 years plus. He has met cats but chases them, although when he gets near them he has no idea what to do! Scamp in fine to be left for short periods, although he will wimper at first!
