Serious discussions are already underway with families on these dogs or the dogs have gone into a home on trial when circumstances have elements that need to be overcome/worked on before homing is confirmed.

Toffee's Story: Toffee was found stray/abandoned and unclaimed within a Midlands council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving her life. Toffee is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Toffee is in boarding kennels near Guildford whilst awaiting her new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

Original Referral information:
23.06.18: Good Morning Lynne,
I wonder if you have any space for TOFFEE a mistreated Mastiff x girl between 1 and 2 yrs. Her assessor has described her as a nice girl who has been mistreated. I took her in the exercise pen yesterday and walked her past other dogs in the stray kennels. No reaction but a waggy tail. She does need work as she is scared of the outside world but is coming on well with her handler. I need to move quickly because she needs out of a pound environment. I will pay her spay costs xx Margaret

REPORT FROM YESTERDAY "I watched her brought out from her kennel past other dogs with no reaction but a wagging tail. We took her to the exercise pen where she pretty much ignored me but showed that she adored her handler with whom she has a special bond. She is a big soft lass somewhere between 1 and 2 years old. A male dog went past the pen and her tail was up but no aggression seen. She has the loveliest smile and has come on well since she has been handled. She will be a wonderful companion for the right owner and I promised her I would do everything I can to get her to rescue as soon as possible. . I don't see a problem in TOFFEE just a beautiful lady who needs to be treated properly"

Toffee is a very special lady. You have to meet her to appreciate just what a soft, gentle, special dog she is. She walked with Louise today. Yes we saw her nerves but we also saw what a friendly, quiet, well balanced dog she is. She walked beautifully on the lead, staying close to Louise's side, and ambled slowly along, taking her time. All she needs is time and love to get over her nerves and she will be an incredibly special companion to the lucky person or family that comes forward to adopt her.

Lots of photos which hopefully show how beautiful she is and also give a little insight into her wonderful personality.

Toffee and I enjoyed a stroll on Friday afternoon - she does like to take her time and that was alright by me thumbs.gif
She is still finding her feet in kennel life - new things and sudden movements still surprise her and make her jump but her beauty and gentleness shine through love4.gif

Toffee has a real wiggle to her walk love4.gif

The yellow cone gave her a fright when it wobbled as she brushed past it ! Reassured by me that all was well she was brave enough to go back and give it a sniff thumbs.gif

Toffee is a very special girl. She is a Mastiff lovers dream.
Life has been rubbish for her so she can be a bit shy but things are now on the up for her and hopefully so is her mood!

We have spent lots of time together today which included a wander down to the busy River Wey where Toffee showed off her many skills, that of:
- walking sooo calmly and gently on the lead
- being comfortable walking near busy traffic
- being totally non reactive when walking close to other on lead dogs
- taking a treat so gently
-being very responsive to me showing how devoted she would be to her forever person

On return to kennels, Toffee met the kennel cat when said cat walked straight over to her! Toffee was interested in being approached so boldly but did not react and was very easily distracted with a treat so good signs there.

Toffee started her day today by appearing to be a bit down in the dumps when we met but ended it with a Mastiff style lean into me and a wagging tail.

WHAT a difference a week makes! On Toffee's second day at Guildford kennels it took me 45 minutes, a ton of treats, a slip lead and an open ended kennel to entice her out, she was terrified. I moved her to a busy kennel so that she'd meet lots of people and Aunties Faith & Jo and Uncle Simon have spoilt her rotten.
Well this Saturday I was greeted by a big dollopy puppy "ooooh hello I know you, we going for walkies?". So off we went after paws on shoulders, full face lickies and bum waggly cuddles!
She LOVED her walk, gently plodding then enjoying a puppy bound here and there. Toffee is playful, hilarious, loving and one of the most striking dogs I have ever met. I'm already very jealous of her future family who I'm sure isn't far away.
Almost impossible to get a photo without her tongue lolling about!
