Dolly's Story : Found stray/abandoned & unclaimed within a council pound despite being chipped family didn't come forwards : Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving their life. Dolly was spayed, she had a reaction to the suture material so our vet re-operated. Bless her she then developed a full false pregnancy and wouldn't tolerate another dog near her : Natural guarding of her 'puppies'. Dolly is spayed, chipped and fully vaccinated. Dolly was in foster near Mitcham.

PLEASE NOTE: Dog laws have changed with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters for at least 4 months until sure of their dogs instincts & skills, some need to be retained always on a lead, so as not to place dog's lives at risk, (Destruction or Control Orders are common place nowadays).

***PLEASE HELP OUR LONG STAY DOGS: Our min. adoption donation £175, which supports our work and Is non returnable. We will offer an alternative dog should our dog not settle given adequate time and reassurance. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life and exist on the goodwill of our supporters and volunteers.

Please click for Dolly's thread for regular updates, new pictures and videos. To apply to home a dog, you must be ready within 7 days and complete a homing questionnaire submitted Online We work fast to secure our dogs their loving homes and can be talking to up to 10 families at any one time. Please remain open: We have the dogs we have. Our dogs need a supportive family to offer patience, time & tolerance to allow them to settle.

Dolly's progress through our Rescue below
Original Referral information : We work with our dogs & often reveal a different picture & positive skills as they build trust. 21.11.16: Please could you save Dolly & Fifi a staffie pair, no other Rescues have come forwards as they are due to lose their lives this week. Lx

Rachel and I had a great start to the weekend meeting these two beauties (NOT Abby and Lindsey the lucky walkers) but the gorgeous Dolly & Fifi
Mum is Dolly and Fifi is the all white, both very friendly, Dolly was quite difficult to photograph as she didn't like staying still and wanted to get on with the walk

The girls were a bit reserved with me when we first met them, but soon came round and were so so friendly...


A few of Dolly...watching Cora intensely..Mmm maybe a treat in the offering

A few of Fifi

Fifi was quite interested in the camera

And so was Dolly

Did I mention Dolly like kisses and cuddles

Sharing her love

love4.gif love4.gif These two are going to be popular with the walkers love4.gif love4.gif

Get ready to lose your heart, these are a smashing pair!! love4.gif love4.gif

We received a wonderful welcome into the kennels and the girls led Lyndsay and I a merry dance in harnessing, both were keen to get out but also alternately give us kisses! Once sorted, off we went. Dolly (with dark patches) is clearly in charge and up front, with FiFi happy to follow on wherever Dolly goes. And Dolly sings! She doesn't like to stop on her walk (as you can see from the photo shoot!) she was crooning at us throughout. Dolly loves being talked to and is very responsive to voice encouragement. A momentary pause for a stroke and chin nibble (I did the former, Dolly the latter!) and we're off again.

And FiFi, quiet, undemanding, a little lost, close at our heels.

They have some baggage to unpack, a little unnerved with leads and harnesses, just watchful but no issues, they've not been invested in, not the centre of someone's life and home, as they deserve. They're learning to trust, so want to and want to be loved, I can't see their forever home being too far away.

Dolly had popped off to the vets this morning so it was my pleasure and delight to go out for a walk with Fifi. She is utterly adorable! This friendly and loveable girl was delighted to be going out in the sunshine to stretch her legs and she pranced delightedly through the autumn leaves and enjoyed the soft grass under her paws. Fifi loves human company and was so easy to walk, just happy to tag along wherever you are going and so appreciative of any attention and fuss she gets. Back in the kennel she was such a good girl while I fiddled with putting her cosy pajama suit back on and then she rolled over for belly rubs and cuddles. Oh my! I am utterly, completely in love with this girl!

This morning I got the chance to walk with Dolly. I quickly learnt that Dolly's priority at the moment is cuddles! While I was putting on her harness she lay down in her bed, belly up, for tummy rubs and cuddles. It took a while to persuade her up, to do up the harness and clip on leads for a walk. To start with Dolly stuck very close to my legs looking up for reassurance and 'talking' to me constantly with little grunts and squeaks. When we were in the wood I sat down and we shared cuddles and Dolly sat beautifully, giving her paw for some treats, while I took some photos. Dolly was tricky to photograph because she wanted to cuddle up and shower me with kisses. I am not complaining, she is adorably sweet and cute. After that Dolly seemed to get her confidence and walked purposefully in front of me, stopping for the odd sniff. Back in the kennel Dolly headed straight for her comfy bed and snuggled down which made getting her coat on rather tricky but between cuddles, we finally managed.
I couldn't decide which photos to share so you get loads!
