Please take a moment to help the Oldies Club

The Oldies Club have often helped out DAWGdogs by featuring some of our older dogs needing homes on their website.
It would be nice to return the favour by getting as many people as possible to vote for them please;-

We are taking part in the Big Break for Charity and need lots more votes to hopefully push us into second or possibly even first place in the contest, and help us win up to £2,000 for the dogs in the care of the Oldies Club rescue. I hope that you will have a spare minute to vote for us here:

You can also vote by texting BIG BREAK 0616 to 78866

If you could spread the word amongst your friends and colleagues too, that would be wonderful and very much appreciated.
Thank you!

Axel [DogwatchUK]

Updated December 13, 2013 Categories: Appeals from other rescues, dogs.

Axel a cute puppy will make a great family pet

Axel is a cute puppy who is full of fun and keen to learn. He will make a great addition to any family, he likes children. He will be an active boy who will keep you entertained. 

Breed : Cross
Age: 10 months old

Axel is a cute little cross breed puppy boy he is very sweet and loves his cuddles. Axel will be ideal for a home that wants to make a young dog their own. He’s a prime candidate for puppy classes and will train very well as he is quick to learn. We think he has collie in him, as his legs are like collie legs and he moves like a collie so will be very active and intelligent. He’s very lightweight though, weighing only 9 kgs.

He is very good on his lead and loves cuddles. He can be homed with a female dog but isn’t too keen on boy dogs.


This poor little baby was in a dogs home and after 7 days his name  would be put on the list to be put to sleep. Dogwatch couldn’t stand the  thought of a young puppy being Put To Sleep so we offered to take him  right away. The staff at the pound told us – “We think this boy may have some collie in him as he is very crafty in the way that he pretends that he hasn’t  had his treat at bed time, (I don’t think he tastes the first one) and  is already sat waiting for his next treat. He loves my little girl so I think he has already been in a home with children. He likes  to drag his bedding out of his bed but hasn’t chewed it as yet. We  haven’t managed to asses him around cats.”

Last of all he seems to love everyone.

Axel is very good on the lead and he is house trained but he will need more puppy training as soon as he is homed.

Fosterers Report : Axel this week has really calmed down. He is good on his lead and in general. He gives you his paw and loves his bones and toys.

Axel is currently in a foster home in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire, West Midlands

Fosterers report : Foster mum Ann says he’s ” interested ” in other dogs and the cat but not aggressively so. We took him round town at weekend and he was a good boy, so he is mixing and getting lots of new experiences.

Lost dog Oscar

Updated April 2, 2011 Categories: Appeals from other rescues, stolen / missing / lost.


Our lost dog Oscar has been reported to have been picked up on the hard shoulder of the M11 motorway heading southbound between junctions 8-7 (Stanstead-Harlow) on 10th January 2011 at approximately 11am.
It has been alleged that two ladies in a small hatchback car picked him up as he was running along the side of the motorway.
The police were called and two police/traffic officers attended the incident.
We have been in contact with the police and the highways agency but neither can find any record of the incident and so we have no idea what happened to Oscar after this and we therefore need your help.
We believe Oscar is not in our area and could have been taken to anywhere in the country! Was he taken to you?

Oscar is a male (complete) sandy and black Border Terrier cross and is 20 months old, he went missing on 8th January 2011 from our back garden in Threshers Bush, Harlow, Essex, CM17 0NS.
He had a collar and tag on when he went missing but is not micro chipped.
Oscar has been with us since birth and was the only puppy in his litter to survive when his brothers and sister were stillborn, he was our little miracle and is very special to us.
We are devastated that he has gone missing and are desperate to find him and return him to his much loved family home.

I have attached a poster with a photo of Oscar, we would really appreciate it if you would print and display this poster for us.

Kind Regards,

Lucy Lawrence

Bruno & Tallis

Updated February 17, 2011 Categories: Appeals from other rescues, dogs, progress updates, successfully rehomed.

Bruno and Tallis have both now found homes!!

Tallis is a neutered 9 month old male Staffie. A really lovely boy, very loyal and affectionate, also very boisterous and energetic. Great off the lead, he will come back when called. Good with children, but doesn’t yet know his boundaries when playing, so better suited to a home without younger children.
Pulls on lead, but with training he will get much better. Good with other dogs but will chase cats & probably other small animals. Found as a stray, he really needs a stable and loving forever home. Tallis has loads of potential to be such a great family dog & is learning fast!

3 dogs with disabilities needing help

Updated February 11, 2011 Categories: Appeals from other rescues.


Alfie is currently living in a vacant house with people going in to feed and walk him. He’s a male SBT approx 6 years old. He was found straying on boxing night outside a night club in the freezing cold. Some kind people carried him home and warmed him up and he eventually stopped shivering. Unfortunately these people could not keep him and he was taken to the pound. He was not claimed and was due to be PTS until we stepped in and saved him. He has seen our vet and it appears that he may have been hit over the head with a sharp object and due to this he has lost some sight in his right eye and walks like he is a little bit drunk. He does not need any extra medical care due to this and it should not impact upon his overall quality of life or his life expectancy. He now needs to find his forever home where he will be pampered and loved. He is a calm, sweet natured boy who loves his comfy beds and his chews. He enjoys short walks and is very well behaved as he is housetrained and is non-destructive when left alone. He is ok with dogs he meets on walks but would benefit from being the only dog of the household and he is not fond of cats. He is such a special boy who has not had a good start in life but he will make someone a fabulous loyal and loving dog…can you offer this boy a loving home?


Trigger is currently in kennels. He’s a 15 month old mastiff cross, he came from a home where his owner was told he was not allowed pets in the accommodation. He contacted a local dogs home but they said they would pts trigger due to his epilepsy so we agreed to take him. He is a friendly, calm lad who has lived with children. He loves to play with other dogs but we do not know how he would be with cats. Trigger’s epilepsy is well controlled with his medication and this costs approx £6 per month. He is such a soft boy and he is so miserable at the kennels.


Bruno is currently in a foster home. After recovering from being ill and putting on much needed weight he seems a happy, contented Dog. It was quite difficult at first as he would not stop barking throughout the night at bedtime. He needed the toilet excessively (mostly doing it in the house) and walked round in circles.

Now however he tells me when he wants something by touching me with his nose. He doesn’t mess in the house now but still needs fairly frequent visits for the loo. We have an agreement at bedtime that he sleeps on the sofa…where it’s comfy instead of being locked in the kitchen. He hates being locked in a room but it was necessary at the time because of toilet issues.

Bruno has a good appetite! I make sure the meat is well mixed in with biscuits otherwise like most Dogs he picks out the meat & leaves Biscuits.
He is very good on or off the lead, when off the lead he stays to the right side of me and go’s off for little sniffs & runs (on the open field) when he feels like it. He has a good, easy pace & doesn’t pull. Although Bruno’s age has been put down as 10yrs I don’t think he is that old…..for one his teeth are in excellent condition. Two he is a strong muscular Dog and now his weight has been regained & no longer ill he looks younger. I’d say he’s more about 8.5yrs.

Bruno likes to try and play with other Dogs when he gets the chance, though being blind he can’t chase them effectively. Although he hasn’t been vicious with my Cats any reaction and he’s on the case, trying to corner them. So, not really suited to a home with Cats. On the other hand Bunny’s don’t bother him he just likes to sniff them. He enjoys a game of tag & chase aswell whilst we are out. I can leave Bruno in the house for several hours when necessary as he is non destructive and he knows I’m coming back. Doesn’t seem to have a problem with loud bangs (farmers shooting) but can’t say in regards to fireworks.

To sum it up he is a big softy but doesn’t realise his weight when he jumps onto your lap and appears to be very stable & confident. He doesn’t ask for much just as long as he’s fed, walked, greeted and has a nice comfy bed & the occasional tug of war with his prized rope. Another canine companion would make his life contented.

All dogs are in the Merseyside area

Rolf

Updated February 2, 2011 Categories: Appeals from other rescues, dogs, progress updates.

Rolf needs a home !


My name is Rolf, & I’m looking for a person with a big heart to adopt me ,This is my story.
I’m an older dog about ten I think, & when my owner died I was taken to another town & they drove away & left me, but I’m a clever dog & made my way back home,
but it took me ten days, but when I arrived back at my old home, someone took me to the pound, but because I am a mature dog I was going to be pts [ I’m not sure what that is, but it doesn’t sound very nice ]
I love my walks,& can really run fast, & my toys, & I’m a good dog with all the cats, dogs, chickens & ducks that live here too,
When I first arrived I was so unsure of what was going to happen to me next I barked if she left me, but I don’t do that now,

I’ll keep my paws crossed
Yours,
Rolf

Wooster the Cat

Updated October 27, 2010 Categories: Appeals from other rescues, cats.

Wooster needs a home!

My name is Wooster, I think I’m about a year old,
I was a feral cat when I made my way down to my new home when my farmer died,
but I’ve tamed down, & like nothing better then to sit on your lap now, in fact I am an absolute pet, I’ll even roll over for tummy rubs & purr for you.
Please can you give me a home, I am neutered & vaccinated now, & the perfect gentlemen when it comes to being house trained.
Can you give me a second chance ?
Yours hopefully,
Wooster.
