She is so much fun.
She is being neutered today.
Thank you for letting us have her.

Kelpie has now found a home !!

progress update: 03/08/2019

Kelpie update : Our beautiful girl Kelpie is still looking for a forever home
Very sweet natured and we know she will thrive in a loving new home.
She loves people and is currently living in a foster home with other dogs so well socialised but can be nervous around dogs she doesn’t know.
She would need ongoing training as a little nervous when road walking.
Off lead and running is when she is at her happiest.

Kelpie is around 6 years old and a Kelpie cross Collie girl.
Sadly because of her person’s health problems she is looking for a home.
She gets on well with other dogs.
She is intellient and quick to learn.
With a little training Kelpie would be a grand agility dog.
She is used to horses too.
Kelpie is the size of a Springer Spaniel in height

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

Thank you Debbie & Ian !!

Updated June 22, 2019 Categories: fundraising, supporters feature, Thank you !!.

Debbie and Ian were married last week and Dotty a DAWGdog was the ringbearer.
Debbie with her Mum Glen have been doing the weekly car boot to raise money for the last 20 odd years and firstly I want to thank her and Glen for their loyal support and all their hours they have spent in the cold, rain and sunshine every Sunday.
Thank you to Ian too who patiently waits for a space to be cleared in their house as Debbie sorts out the donated items.

Secondly, I would like to thank Debbie and Ian who asked their guests at the wedding to not buy presents but instead donate to DAWGdogs.
Debbie and Ian have just let me know that they have raised an amazing £510.00
