Terrier Cross

Stella – 10 year old female Terrier Cross

Hello, my name is Stella. I’m a ten year old female Terrier mixed-breed. I arrived at The Mayhew after being found abandoned on the streets of London. I’m a very friendly and well-behaved girl. I’m super affectionate and I enjoy getting love and attention from everyone I meet. I also get along very well with other dogs.

I’m toilet-trained, I walk nicely on my lead without pulling and I know the usual commands which I respond well to. I have a heart murmur but it doesn’t seem to affect me or slow me down and at the moment it doesn’t require any treatment. I love going to the park where I enjoy running around and interacting with other dogs and I have a good recall off my lead.

I’m now looking for a forever home with a person or family who have researched my breed type. I can live with children from twelve years of age and upwards and I’d also happily share my new home with other dogs and dog-confident cats. It’s not yet known how I cope being left on my own 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 commitment involved in caring for a dog, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,

James – 4 year old male Terrier cross Pug

This gorgeous boy is James, the 4-year old Terrier cross Pug, who is being fostered in Crewe, Cheshire. Don’t be fooled by the ‘pug’ in his make up. This boy has a terrier personality through and through. He has energy by the bucket-load and a deep hatred for felines! James requires a lot of exercise and stimulation on a daily basis. His recall is excellent so he regularly enjoys long runs in the fields near his foster home. On a lead he will bark at other dogs, but once introduced he will happily run and play with others. He is very responsive and listens to vocal commands. On the lead James pulls initially, but he does love being outside, and this is just due to over excitement. He soon calms down and walks well on a lead.

Since being in his current foster home it has become obvious that James is a very stressy, anxious lad who would benefit from living in a quiet and calm home with no children, or older, calmer ones. He came into us earlier in the year and was adopted by a young family. Unfortunately, he was returned to us because he wasn’t coping and was exhibiting signs of stress. At the moment James is getting ‘back to basics’ puppy training and he needs to learn how to stay calm – this is something that his new family will have to continue with. The high energy, over-excited behaviour is very much stress related and will no doubt get worse when moving to a new home. Any prospective adopters should work with his current fosterer to reduce this.

In his foster home there is a very dog savvy cat but James chases him at every opportunity so he will not be rehomed with cats or small animals. He currently lives with multiple breeds and sizes of dogs and has no issues but was a little over enthusiastic with the others. When James first arrived he did have a little grumble at the other dogs at meal times but is fed in the same room as them now and has been fine. Around the house James can be fearful of noises outside and may bark to start with. Once he’s reassured he does stop and these episodes have reduced dramatically since he has familiarised himself with his home. In the garden he hasn’t tried to jump the fences but he is very much a terrier and does need secure fencing in case he sees a cat.

James isn’t keen on travelling in the car, due to a bad experience he had before coming into rescue earlier this year, when he was thrown out of one. He will pace and cry to start with but this is being worked on as he travels to work with his foster mum every day. Any adopter would have to continue to work on this area with him. This lad is very happy when he is with people. He adores cuddles and attention. His favourite place in the world is curled up in a tight ball next to you on the sofa. He loves being bathed and groomed too! He cannot cope with being left for long periods but a couple of hours at a time is fine. He is crate trained and although complains for a few minutes soon settles down to sleep.

James is a beautiful boy who is learning lots of skills in his foster home which will prepare him for a forever home. He is a lovely friendly dog who, with consistent training, will be a great fun companion.

We are looking for a terrier-experienced home looking for an energetic dog outside the house but cuddly dog inside the house. James has had a tough past and so any new adopter should be prepared to be patient and work through any issue that arise as he settles in. James is neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Prospective adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Crewe, Cheshire.

Lucky is 2-3 years old and a medium sized cross breed, we think she maybe Terrier cross Collie. She is a lovely girl who mixes well with the other dogs and likes everyone and has lots of character. She is speyed and vaccinated and in North Hertfordshire.

She could live on her own or with another suitable dog but can not live with cats. She could live with a family with older children or with an active adult only home. Most of the time she is a happy laid back girl but does show signs of wanting to chase things, this could be redirected onto toys as she seems very easy to train. Please call for more details.
