Maggie needs a home !!

Maggie is a darling of a dog.
She is 18 months old and gets on with the other dogs well.
She arrived a week ago and soon settled in here.
After she had got used to things I took her and my three to the Rec for a walk, she was just busting to run so I let her off lead.
Well, my heart nearly stopped as she ran at full speed a huge circle and out into the car park.
“That’s it you fool you better get running after her ” I thought to myself ( running is not my best sport and my knees aren’t as young as they were !! )
And then as I was frantically calling her she turned sharply in a cornering any Speedway rider would be proud of and headed back to me. Phew !!
She ran at full speed in circles several times and back to me when I called her.
Lots of praise and tum tickling and she was off again this time with Willoughby and her chasing each other in circles.
She is lying at my feet as I type this.

If you may be able to offer a home

please call Helen on 01202 380467

Phone calls & messages are usually only taken during office hours Mon – Sat.

Emails and Facebook messages can usually only be responded to within 3 days,

so please be patient if you don’t get an answer straight away:

Helen is often too busy to explain how busy she is!

We usually only rehome within approx. 50 miles of the Bournemouth / Poole area
so that we can ensure the continued well-being of the dogs in our care.
We will only rehome further afield if the homes are exceptional.
We are NOT looking for just ANY home that is offered.
All potential homes will be assessed to try and ensure the best possible home
to cater for the differing needs of each individual dog that we rescue

progress update: 30/08/2018

So Scooby Doo was 3 on Sunday!
This Beastie Boy is the loveliest of dogs with such a pure soul, and a real goofball too!
He makes our lives even happier and we couldn’t love him more.
He gives this love 100 times back.
Everyone should have a Scooby Doo in their life!
Happy birthday Scooby!

progress update: 10/06/2018

Hi Helen, hope all is well! Update on what Scooby Doo has been up to:
So I took Scooby Doo to his first activity class which includes fun agility, fun rally, Tellington TTouch ground work for proprioception, etc.
He really kept the flag flying for lurchers and I can honestly say that he was one of the best behaved dogs there!
He tried everything and even managed the scary high ramp after 3 attempts!
What was lovely for me was to see that all the hard work I put in him for the last 2 and a half year completely paid off,
and that he is really determined, focused on me and really put all his trust in me..
He was allowed a McDonald’s chip from his human brother’s birthday breakfast as a reward and has now been asleep on the sofa for two hours solid, in true lurcher style! Love this boy so much
A few pics to follow.. xx
