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.
You can securely make an online donation using the Paypal button below.

please ring Helen on 01202 380467 or email

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.
It is about time Willoughby was introduced to the website!
Helen has hand-reared him since he came into the Rescue as a 4 day-old pup and in the process has become so fond of him that he has joined the full-time Staff DAWGdogs Pippin and Holly as attaining the coverted honour ( reserved for only the Very Best or Most Unhomable of Dogs!) of becoming One Of Helen’s Own Dogs
However dog-fans, the slightly disturbing news is that Willoughby is very easily mistaken for a kitten…*cuteness alert*…
NOW REHOMED !!
progress update: 28/8/15
Another first for Jem… a fun dog show.
Lots of hustle and bustle and dogs.
He took it all in his stride and took third place in Handsome Dog…
I think he should have come first :)
Here he is proudly sporting his rosette with his sisters…
BOTH REHOMED !!
progress update on Willow : 28/8/15
Look at beautiful Willow formerly Nova with her proud mum, she won her first rossette at Buckham Fair, she has come such a long way with her new family, such a scared and sad girl when she arrived here, now she’s happy and loved.
Vinny & Bruno
Bruno is a leggy cross breed who looks like a leggy Labrador.
Who can resist those soft eyes….
Bruno is living with children who he gets on very well with and he is also good with other dogs.
He is not good with cats so a cat free home is needed for Bruno.
Unfortunately, the lady who he lives with cannot keep him anymore due to personal circumstances.
Bruno’s long legs like a bit of a run and he enjoys his walks. What dog doesn’t ??
Vinny lives with Bruno and is the same age of two years.
He is great with other dogs and children.
Both Vinny and Bruno are staying in their home while we find them a home.
Our annual DAWG Dog show will be taking place on

Hey guys thought you’d like an update on a little guy we rehomed about 9 years ago!!
This is Murphy we got him off you as a puppy called Sam from a Jack Russell cross you rescued from Ireland who promptly delivered puppies!
We chose Murphy because he had 4 adorable white paws and was such a cheeky puppy!
9 years later and he shows no signs of slowing down!
Everyone who meets him loves him and always want to know his breed! (The one thing we can’t answer!),
he’s a happy cheeky dog who is so well loved thank you dawgdogs for Murphy!
He’s a well loved member of our family and is a joy to own.
Would love to see if any one has Murphys siblings too!
We remember one was called Frankie and he was a coloured pup
Message from Jane Ferguson :
Laura Ferguson, Samantha Fry, Ollie SFC Wareham and myself are running the New Forest Half Marathon

Any sponsors, no matter how small, would be very much appreciated.
All donations will help rescue dogs receive the care they need whilst finding them loving forever homes.
Also, it’s not too late to enter and join us, the deadline is 31st August, 2015!
This is Reggie who is six years old.
Reggie gets on very well with other dogs but not cats.
He is a mixture of all sorts and about the same size of a Springer Spaniel in height.
Reggie is a friendly and enthusiastic boy.
More to follow as Reggie settles in
