Sadie

Sadie needs a home !!

progress update: 15/05/2018

Sadie came with DAWGdog Snoop to the Bransgore Fun Day.
She was an absolute delight to walk around and enjoyed a snooze in the beer tent.
Thanks to Jules Syrett Photography for taking the photos.

We have been fostering Sadie for just over a week now.
She has settled in beautifully with DAWGdogs Taylor and Snoop, like she has always been here.
A really gentle, friendly girl with both humans and other dogs.
Sadie is good on the lead, doesn’t pull and excellent in the car.
Typical lurcher in nature, likes to sleep a lot in a comfy bed most of the day!
Sadie will be a wonderful, loyal friend to a lucky human.

Sadie was in the dog pound with Rogan and her time was up too.
She is also a sweet natured and gentle character.
She gets on very well with all the dogs here.
On her walks she likes to bounce down to play with the dogs she meets.

please call Helen on 01202 380467

Phone calls / messages can usually only be taken during normal 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

Jake is settling in really well and is enjoying his new life in the New Forest.
He is much braver now but is work in progress regarding meeting new people and other dogs as he is quite reactive.
Absolutely love him to bits.
We are so lucky to have found him.

Skye needs a home !!

progress update: 24/04/2018

Exciting day for me as I have been on a treasure hunt with Biscuit, Gemma and Stuart.
And I walked along the road from their house to the park and only had to be picked up once…..
The cars still scare me a bit to be honest but I am gradually getting used to the noise they make.
I am worn out from all the new experiences and going to have a bit of a snore and legs up in the air now having just eaten a delicious dinner

progress update: 21/04/2018

Well today I met a nice couple who wanted to meet me.
Helen wanted them to see how very scared of the outdoors wide open spaces I am.
And with a lot of tempting we went around the block for a walk.
As soon as I knew I was on the homeward stretch I pulled all the way to the back garden to get to my safety zone.
Tomorrow I am off to stay with Gemma, Stuart and Biscuit who are going to continue to walk with me in the woods and let me off the lead for a good run in the enclosed dog park.
Helen is going to take me over to Geoff’s for a run in his paddock while she picks up the horse poo.
And she has said she will take me to her allotments where I can get used to open space in a safe area.
She is crossing her fingers I won’t bark too much and annoy the other allotment people

progress update: 8/04/2018

Skye is gradually coming on with her lead training and getting used to the noise of cars etc.
She spent the weekend with Gemma, Stuart and Biscuit and had an off-lead run in the enclosed dog park.
She did very well in the woods walking on the lead and is now starting to pull ahead on it.
In no time at all she will become comfortable with the outside world.

Skye’s view of the last few days :-
Helen took me out for a lead walk on Thursday and Friday.
At first it was quite scary as having been in a shed the cars made so much noise.
I sat down and refused to move.
Helen stroked me and tempted me on a few more steps and there were so many interesting smells that I walked around the corner myself which I had a lot of praise for.
Helen said I had probably had enough by the time we walked around the block and I was glad to get back into the garden.
Jake immediately tried to round me up into a tidy circle……
On the weekend I tired myself out in Gemma and Stuart’s garden and had a walk in the woods and so many interesting smells that I completely forgot to be scared.
They are going to take me out for more walks this week!

Skye is a year old Collie who gets on with other dogs.
Having been kept in a shed she is gradually getting used to a lead and the world outside of the garden.
Very quick to learn and a gentle girl.

REHOMED !!

progress update: 18/04/2018

Hi Helen I don’t know if you remember us but this is Chester (previously Homer) who we adopted 5 years ago from you.
He is an old man nowadays but is fit and well and the light of my life (together with our beagle of course!)
He was fostered by Geoff when we got him all that time ago.
Good to see you are still doing a wonderful job

Dinky

REHOMED !!

progress update: 17/04/2018

I can’t believe it’s a year already since Dinky came in our family.
It’s been amazing, he’s a perfect fit and we love him lots.
Thanks Dawg dogs and Helen.
I hope we get many more years with him.
