Can you help us by donating any prizes for our annual DAWGdogs Fun Day Dog Show to be held in September?

We need auction lots and raffle prizes, also bottles for the Bottle Stall.

We won’t need any more bric a brac as we had so much last year that there is still plenty left for this year’s show too!

Blue Boy the greyhound

Blue Boy needs a home !!

Blue Boy has come come into the rescue due to the ill health of his elderly owner.

He has settled in very well at Geoff’s place and got on straight away with Geoff’s dogs.
He has the usual gentle and placid temperament of the greyhound and lurcher types.
Blue Boy has lived with five cats and is 8 years old

If you may be able to offer a home

please call Helen on 01202 380467

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

Hi Helen, another update. So proud of my big beautiful boy.
In less the two years he has achieved his Advanced certificate in Obedience, taken Top Dog in the school and together we are Top Working Pair.
Its been hard work for both of us but so worth while. A couple of weeks ago he took Best Dog at a local show.
He still has little issues but slowly we are overcoming them and he is such a character.
He still likes moving things and you never know what article of furnishing you will find in the garden.
He is still an incorrigible thief, only the other week my hard boiled egg disappeared off my plate when I turned round to pick up my cup of tea.
Love this boy so much.
Not sure where we go from here, but he is working with the girls on some tricks… his part involves laying down, something he is very good at.
Angela and Jem….X

A new picture of Alfie showing how beautifully his fur has grown back.
The vet was very pleased with him and he behaved very well when we went.
He loves his walks, although we keep them short in the hot weather.
He is such a happy little dog and we are so lucky to have him.

Buddy has now found a home !!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to help sell scratch cards at Pets at Home Branksome over the last four weeks,
to Chris and his team in the store,
to Stephanie for the cakes,
to Sarah for the bags of homemade dog treats,
to the dogs who gave up their time lying in the sun
and last but not least to all of you that bought scratch cards
and sometimes bought them each time you came into the store!
