IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE:
This Rescue 'DAWGDOGS / DAWG / DORSET ANIMAL WORKERS GROUP' has no connection or association with a different rescue called 'DORSET DOG RESCUE / DDR' about which there has recently been considerable adverse publicity.
Please ring Helen on 01202 380467 if you have any questions or concerns relating to the operation and practices of our Rescue (DAWGdogs)
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.
Our annual DAWG Dog show will be taking place on
Sunday, 6th September, 2015
Amberwood Farm, Fairlight Lane, Tiptoe SO41 6FB.
Can anyone donate any items or services that we can auction?
All proceeds to DAWGdogs Rescue.
If anyone would like a stall on the day, please ring Kate on 07990614091.
We are also looking for items we can raffle, bottles for the bottle stall and cakes to sell.
Thank you for your support!

I have just gone back to this, to remember how Toby found his way into our hearts.
He came to live with us in a quiet house, with grown up children and our older dog, who is sadly this year has gone to doggy heaven.
We love him dearly and is very spoilt boy, enjoys his walks, goes to the beach everyday and still chases seagulls, loses a tennis ball most days.
He goes to work 4 days a week and is the official meet and greet member of staff and has a large fan base!
He loves to help with the housework and gardening, everything takes twice as long to do.
He only is a little nervous at night if he has been asleep, we definitely think he was kicked while he was sleeping, which is so sad, we have noticed in the last few weeks he is more relaxed when sleeping now lays on his back with legs in the air rather than curling in a tight ball and not leaping up when you pass him. Definitely has collie on his DNA, love to find out what the rest is, whatever it is it is all lovely!
Thank you Dawg dogs for such a lovely companion

Well its been a week and he is an absolute delight.
They all travel together in the car, he has accepted the crate as his place.
At the moment I am still shutting him in at night but very soon I won’t have to do that.
I have left him for an hour in his crate and he is fine.
He knows his new name and responds in an instant and is responding when excited of distracted… not as quick but getting there.
He knows the feeding routine and is better at it than the girls.
As soon as the bowls come out he goes and sits by his table and is now staying without restraint until told he can have it.
He sits with hand command only and is learning to stay. He finds that hard as he so wants to be with me.
He is friends with everyone and everything.
He has only had one pop at a another dog and that one is muzzled because its aggressive so who knows what vibes it was giving off.
He was told that behaviour isn’t acceptable and will soon learn I protect him not the other way round.
He saw the husky’s lookalike and growled at that, again was checked. Male dogs no problem.
Small dogs no problem so long as he knows its a dog.
He would chase if he saw a small one running in the distance.
Don’t know what he would do when he caught up with it.
He was playing with four yesterday and he lay down to get to there level and they were climbing all over him.
I don’t think my other three would have tolerated that.
He can be a bit in your face, especially when your tea is on a tray, but silently and firmly pushing him away he gets the message and now goes to his crate when I eat.
His interest in the ferrets in waning and he doesn’t actually appear to have a killer instinct… unless he see’s a cat.
But I am sure most of the time he just wants to play. His mouth is very soft and he will give up anything if you ask.
He is one of the sweetest most lovable dogs I have had and so looking forward to working with him when school starts in October.
Oh, the legs are a problem… I think he forgets how long they are and they get a bit tangled… he is just adorable…
Angela & Jem, not forgetting his girlies.
PS he is yawning because I was taking to long with his breakfast :)
