Mattis is a 2-year-old, medium-sized retriever type cross.

Usually, in these albums, we start by telling you the story of how the dog was rescued, but Mattis actually rescued himself! He turned up at one of the neutering campaigns in Romania, and quite frankly he refused to let them leave without him ?

Mattis is a happy, friendly boy and appreciates every single thing this new life has to offer, his tail has not stopped wagging since he arrived.

He’s happily living with other dogs but he loves people so much that we feel he’d be equally happy as an only dog.

He has picked up toilet training with ease.

He has not been cat tested and can live with children 8+ as he hasn’t been assessed with younger than that.

Mattis – Fostered in South Shields

Please note it is Safe Rescue policy that all dogs adopted from us must wear a slip lead to be walked for the duration of their lives.

Too many dogs are lost from slipping out of collars and harnesses and many of our dogs are timid due to past ill-treatment and are likely to panic when out and about. It is absolutely okay to use these things added to slip leads, but not instead of.

We also request that extendable retractable leads are never used on our dogs. If you are opposed to slipping leads, please do not enquire about our dogs as this is non-negotiable.

Thank you for understanding. All dogs have to be collected and a crate must be used.

All dogs are vaccinated, microchip and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered) If you are interested please message or call between 9am to 5pm Mon – Fri or 9am to 4pm Saturday

We are a voluntary organisation with members from all over the world that have come together to help dogs in need, regardless of their location. To date we have helped dogs from Spain, Cyprus and Turkey but the majority of our work takes place in Romania where we have built up strong relationships with many dedicated rescuers before bringing the dogs to the UK and into foster care for rehoming.
