DAWGdogs Rescue is a non-profit organisation staffed by volunteers.
Every penny raised goes towards the high costs improving the lives of as many dogs as we are able to save.
Our veterinary bills alone run into many thousands of pounds each year, and the costs of feeding, microchipping, sheltering and transporting those in our care are ever rising.
Please make the DAWGdogs a donation if you can.

Rescuers, rescue supporters, and volunteers do not walk on water.
We don't wear capes and tights or leap tall buildings.
We aren't better than anyone else, but we do pursue a cause that we believe makes us better than we were before we started.
We make mistakes; we feel we can't do enough; we go broke; we have too many dogs at home; we rant out of frustration; we lose our tempers and get snappy; we have to reject people sometimes for the good of a dog.
We are not always likeable.
What we do is draining, emotionally, financially, and physically.
Please bear with us and forgive us our flaws, because we are doing work that's bigger than we are.
The annual DAWGdog Fun Dog Show will soon be upon us!
We have some great items that have been generously donated for the auction!
We still need bottles for the bottle stall so if anyone has any they can donate please phone either Helen at the Rescue or Kate on 0799 0614091.
We have plenty of bric n brac this year but can always sell second hand dog items if anyone has any to donate.
Our cake stall always does well and we are always grateful for people baking cakes and bringing them along on the day.
If you do have time to bake cakes but are not coming to the show then please let us now as they can be dropped to Helen at her house.
Helen is on 01202 380467 or Kate on 07990614091
Many thanks and we hope to see you all there again this year along with as many ex Dawgdogs as can come along to enjoy the day!

Minnie has really taken Toyah the puppy under her motherly wing.
Toyah snuggles up next to her and Minnie with good nature puts up with Toyah when she stands on her stomach to reach higher to something she wants, sticks her head in Minnie’s food bowl, catches Minnie’s tail which is always wagging and as you can see from this photo shares Minnie’s bed.
Minnie is a people lover and is always wanting to be rest her head on your knee to be stroked and hugged.

Minnie is a very gentle, placid and quiet dog who loves lots of cuddles.
She is doing a great job of looking after an unwell puppy who has come into the Rescue and is very patient.
This is Dorey, she is good with children, good with dogs but not with cats.
Even though she is 13 1/2 years old there is much life left in her. Dorey loves to play with her toys, splashing in water and playing case with Millie.
She loves a cuddle and a good scratch. Dorey is up to date with her vaccinations and is in good health.
We have been taking her on 50 minute walks around our local common and she keeps up well.
She prefers to be on the extendable lead so she has a bit more freedom but I would strongly advise she is kept on a lead, otherwise she gets a scent and is off !!!
Dorey needs a forever home as her previous elderly owners were unable to take her with them to their new accommodation.

We have a tea leaf on the premises, a very clever one!
Gizzy managed to get the lid of the feed bin take out the packet of paddywacks, help himself to one and put packet back…replacing lid !!
How do I know this… after the first time he did it he ate his spoils and went back for more..
Said treats now removed onto higher surface.
Gizzy has not had the best out of life up to now.
He was kept most of the hours in each day in a crate but his luck has taken an upward turn and he has landed firmly on his feet at Pat’s who he is fostering with.
Gizzy is a bit underweight and will over the next few weeks eat the Rescue out of house and home.
This is galvanising Jimbo to eat all his meals in double quick time instead of pulling off his usual trick of turning his nose up at a meal that has been prepared with love and care and looking at the menu again.
Those of you with fussy children will know how this feels !
I say make them sit there until they have eaten every last crumb.
My Dad did this to me with my sprouts once and it didn’t do me any harm.
Anyway, child training tips apart Lord Jimbo or President Putin as Mark calls him is also staying with Pat for a while now Helen has a rather attractive young girl at her house who is in season.
Jimbo’s heart can’t take it at his age and although many an old whistle blows a new tune it doesn’t mean the old heart can keep up, as many elderly millionaires who have married young and pretty gold diggers have found out to their cost !!
Hopefully, Pat who thought she would be having a bit of rest time after having her knee replaced can hobble her way up to Branksome Pets at Home on Saturday, Gizzy will be there making an effort to sell raffle tickets and sign autographs for those of you who would like to meet him.
Just arrived Gizzy, a Chinese crested x jack hairless, 6yr neutered male x sweet boy.

Thank you again for your great help and second opportunities you give to dogs and people.
These are 2 pics of my little princess.
Have a great afternoon, Ana
Freddie is a three year old Jack Russel Cross who is good with older children and most dogs.
He needs a home where someone is at home most of the time as he doesn’t like to be left for long.
He loves a lot of exercise and being in the garden but also loves nothing more than to snuggle on the sofa for a cuddle.
Freddie is staying in is present home while a home is found for him.
