Some dogs that we rescue need more help than others to become rehabilitated.
If you are experienced with the greater challenges and
want the greater rewards of helping a dog with behavioural or health problems you may wish to talk to Helen about:
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.
You can securely make an online donation using the Paypal button below.
To donate in other ways,
please ring Helen on 01202 380467 or email
for more details!
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.
Joshua (approx 6yrs old).
“This is Joshua our blind German Spitz, type.
He is a lovely dog, neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped
came from Bulgaria after a road traffic accident that caused him to have his eyes removed.
He loves people and will sit waiting for a cuddle and treat, he is house trained travels well, doesn’t pull on a lead and is not noisy or destructive ,
In a household with no other pets he would be the perfect companion. Must live indoors.
A little stubborn as is common with this breed but as he will do anything for a treat that’s not a problem.
Since coming to Ireland our canine family has increased as we have taken on several rescues and Joshua finds the increase number of dogs in his face very stressful.
Joshua know “Careful, step, jump, steady, in the car, in out, sit, and copes almost as well as a seeing dog.
We now realise that our home is not ideal for Joshua because of all our extra dogs.
His ideal home would be either with no other pets or a quiet “not in your face dog” preferably female.
As far as we know he has not met young children so a home with older children would be preferable.”
Tilly and Charlie, a golden and a black Cocker Spaniel are missing from Hangersely Hill near Ringwood.
They disappeared on Wednesday and haven’t been since.
They were wearing collars and tags, but the owners have since found one of the tags.
If seen, please call 01425470852 or 07917681626

Both pups are such happy playful and very friendly little guys .
They adore cuddles and will ask to be picked and held in your arms to snuggle down to sleep.
At the end of the week I will start to walk them on a lead and harness .
Dolly and Conner sleep all night in their crate and are coming along very nicely with toilet training .
Tiny is a 3-4 year old Jack Russel.
He’s a bit overweight at the moment so is on a diet.
He is very friendly and gets on with other dogs and just ignores the cat.
He has been neutered and has his 1st vaccinations.
For all his weight he is active and loves fuss and affection.
Trinity was in a pound and had done her time.
Les volunteered to drive down and pick her and Sage up and brought them up to us yesterday
This is Trinity 1 year to 18 month smallish Lurcher, very gentle and good with other dogs,
Julie her foster mum has this to say about her :-
She is as soft as butter and very loving. a pleasure to foster her.
She will be a perfect dog to a loving family xx

This is Rocky, he is settling in very well a little reserved at first but each day he is coming out of himself. loves attention, fuss and my little girl.
Rocky is also ignoring the cats in his foster home even though they are not so keen on him.
We feel that he needs a home with another dog for company as he is very insecure and gets on very well with other dogs
Rocky [the collie] is also a very sweet boy, he is quite reserved at first,
Rocky is very good with other dogs.
