Minnie the Minx ( a.k.a Milo )

Minnie needs a home !!

progress update: 24/08/2014

Minnie is a very gentle, placid and quiet dog who loves lots of cuddles.

She is doing a great job of looking after an unwell puppy who has come into the Rescue and is very patient.

Minnie doing her ‘I am so good!’ pose.

Milo has also recently arrived and this is where it gets confusing because Milo is a girl so we are going to be calling her Minnie the Minx seeing as we are on a comic theme with names and we haven’t had a dog named this before.
It helps Mark out who does the website if they have different names as he is easily confused…..

Minnie the Minx is a black Lab type girl who really likes other dogs and other children.
When she has arrived I am sure Stephanie the DAWGdogs photographer will come and take photos of her showing her best side!

If you may be able to offer a home or would like more details

please contact Helen directly on:

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

Dorey

Updated August 20, 2014 Categories: DAWGDOGS NEEDING A HOME !!, dogs, JUST ARRIVED !!.

Dorey needs a home !!

This is Dorey, she is good with children, good with dogs but not with cats.
Even though she is 13 1/2 years old there is much life left in her. Dorey loves to play with her toys, splashing in water and playing case with Millie.
She loves a cuddle and a good scratch. Dorey is up to date with her vaccinations and is in good health.
We have been taking her on 50 minute walks around our local common and she keeps up well.
She prefers to be on the extendable lead so she has a bit more freedom but I would strongly advise she is kept on a lead, otherwise she gets a scent and is off !!!
Dorey needs a forever home as her previous elderly owners were unable to take her with them to their new accommodation.

Gizzy

Updated August 13, 2014 Categories: DAWGDOGS NEEDING A HOME !!, dogs, JUST ARRIVED !!.

Gizzy needs a home !!

Gizzy has not had the best out of life up to now.
He was kept most of the hours in each day in a crate but his luck has taken an upward turn and he has landed firmly on his feet at Pat’s who he is fostering with.
Gizzy is a bit underweight and will over the next few weeks eat the Rescue out of house and home.
This is galvanising Jimbo to eat all his meals in double quick time instead of pulling off his usual trick of turning his nose up at a meal that has been prepared with love and care and looking at the menu again.
Those of you with fussy children will know how this feels !
I say make them sit there until they have eaten every last crumb.
My Dad did this to me with my sprouts once and it didn’t do me any harm.

Anyway, child training tips apart Lord Jimbo or President Putin as Mark calls him is also staying with Pat for a while now Helen has a rather attractive young girl at her house who is in season.
Jimbo’s heart can’t take it at his age and although many an old whistle blows a new tune it doesn’t mean the old heart can keep up, as many elderly millionaires who have married young and pretty gold diggers have found out to their cost !!

Hopefully, Pat who thought she would be having a bit of rest time after having her knee replaced can hobble her way up to Branksome Pets at Home on Saturday, Gizzy will be there making an effort to sell raffle tickets and sign autographs for those of you who would like to meet him.

Just arrived Gizzy, a Chinese crested x jack hairless, 6yr neutered male x sweet boy.

Freddie the Jack Russel cross

Updated August 8, 2014 Categories: DAWGDOGS NEEDING A HOME !!, dogs.

Freddie needs a home !!

Freddie is a three year old Jack Russel Cross who is good with older children and most dogs.
He needs a home where someone is at home most of the time as he doesn’t like to be left for long.
He loves a lot of exercise and being in the garden but also loves nothing more than to snuggle on the sofa for a cuddle.
Freddie is staying in is present home while a home is found for him.

Desperate Dan

Desperate Dan needs a home !!

progress update: 13/08/2014

Dan went to Pets at Home this weekend to raise money for DAWGdogs or maybe just to raise money for his Bonio fund who knows as he is keeping quiet about this!
Either way he charmed a lot of people into buying raffle tickets even if this meant he had to resort to the tactic of jumping up and hugging them!

From Donna who fostered Dan before he came to us :-

Ros and I fostered Danny for several weeks in Ireland.
There is not a bad bone in his body.
He is just a big bouncy happy cartoon type Collie.
When he arrived he had no idea how to play.
After a couple of weeks he discovered the joys of tug of war on rope, squeaky ball and playful wrestling!
He is a tad clumsy because of his boundless enthusiasm and love of life, other dogs, people and children!
He does chase cats but I am sure this is only because he is longing for a playmate!
A home with another dog who loves boisterous play or a ten year old boy he would wrestle with would be great! He is a big dog and very strong but endlessly eager to please!
We would love to hear that he has found his forever home!

Desperate Dan is a young Collie who his foster Mum has said would be great for Agility.
If you are not the energetic Agility type don’t worry he will be just as happy going for beach walks etc.
Dan likes children but prefers older ones and loves other dogs especially those who like to play a lot!

Toffee

Updated August 2, 2014 Categories: dogs, progress updates, successfully rehomed.

Toffee has now found a home !!

Toffee would make a great companion for anyone.
He is such a people dog he is getting on well with both Wish and Sprocket and is learning he is a dog again as I think he has been spoiled in the past,
he is now on a diet and exercise as he is a little overweight.
Toffee is loving having a garden to go in and out as he likes and loves all the walks we have been going on.

Toffee is a 4 year old chihuahua who would best be homed without cats and/or small children.
