Sonny needs a home !!

progress update: 4/5/21

Sonny has had no problems settling without Hamish.
He is progressing steadily and is now coming close for cuddles, and we are getting a few tail wags.
He is beginning to warm to regular visitors, taking treats from them.
We went to the beach where he was not sure about the waves but was happy to sit in beach hut and watch people passing by.
He enjoys his walks and interaction with other dogs, although is still wary of people close by.

Sonny is very nervous in all situations, he is just beginning to take treats from our hands but is very easily spooked.
He is very nervous out walking but relaxes in quiet areas and enjoys a sniff about.
He occasionally tries to play with the others but mostly just watches.
He enjoys a good run in the back garden and returns to the house if he is unsure of anything.

Sonny arrived to us last Saturday.
He was in a dog pound and his time was up..
Sonny is around a year old and has not been treated well at all.
He will need someone who is patient with him and to build his confidence.

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

Hamish has now found a home !!

Hamish is confident and playful at home with lots of energy. He is very nosey out and about and enjoys a good sniff, but is a little wary in busy situations.

He is mainly clean in the house but does still have the odd accident.

He does not appear to know any basic commands but will come to a whistle and the offer of food.

Hamish is six months old and still a puppy.

He is friendly and quite confident but will need a home with time to train him.

He is coming along well in his foster home.

In memory of Jackie

Updated March 20, 2021 Categories: fundraising, Thank you !!.

On behalf of everyone at DAWGDogs, we would like to thank all the family and friends who during this very sad time raised £2000 in memory of Jackie for the Rescue.

We are deeply touched by everyone’s kindness and generosity.

The money raised will be a huge help with vets bills and the ongoing care of rescue dogs.

Thank you so very much.

We send our deepest sympathy for your loss.

“Jackie Etherington was a loving wife, mother and friend. She spent her time helping others, through both her career and her personal life.
Her dedication to her job earned her the title of ‘Work Mum’.
Regardless if you knew her in her proffesional capacity or as part of her family and friends, we can all agree that she added light to our lives where there was darkness.
Jackie was taken from us too early and we want to both remember and celebrate her life.

Jackie was passionate about her love of dogs. She loved many during her life including Jack and Paddy.
So in memory of Jackie we are raising money for DAWGdogs Rescue. It is a non-profit organisation staffed by volunteers.
Every penny raised goes towards the high costs of their mission to improve the lives of as many dogs as they are able to save. Their veterinary bills alone run into many thousands of pounds each year, and the costs of feeding, microchipping, sheltering and transporting those in their care are ever rising.”

Khan has now found a home !!

Khan arrived two weeks ago looking a bit skinny with overgrown claws.
He has now put on weight and had his claws trimmed.
Lovely boy who is getting on well with Jasper ex-DAWGdogs whose home he is fostering at.
Khan is four years old.
Laid back type of personality – couch potato like most greyhounds!
