Here is a picture of Toby, who used to be called Gump because he was
found in a forest. He is very loving although still a little nervous of
strangers but he is fine if people allow him to come to them.
He is well trained, comes to the whistle and loves retrieving. He can even
take directions to find a toy hidden at a distance.
Toby’s favourite human is Luke. He goes out training with Luke every day
and sleeps beside his bed. He loves running and eating, he is a sweetheart and we love him.
Pat, Graham, Luke and Toby
Letters to Mutts
It's great to hear from people who have given a home and a family to one of our dogs. Here are some of the letters we've received.
I got to make a delivery of goodies to Pat’s dog training school yesterday and I just wanted to say how wonderful it is. Bronte and I have done three years of dog training in London but this was so much better and excellent value for money.
Just a short note to say that after 3 weeks, Panky has settled in well and is learning day by day. Panky has lost most of his nervousness and is enjoying long walks in the countryside, 42 miles in seven days at the last count! Loads of energy and no trouble at all with other dogs, he just wants to play with them all.
Panky is a brilliant addition to the family, going out in the car and exploring new places. Please pass on our thanks to Pauline for fostering him, she did a brilliant job.
Steve, Mary, Catherine and David.
To Pat and Terry,
Thank you so, so much for all your help, advice and support. You really have helped to make Rocco a much happier and more settled dog.
Without you, the world would be a sadder and scarier place for all these poor defenceless animals.
We thank you on their behalf. Thank you for giving us the confidence to be the best owners we
can be to Rocco.
Kerry, Mike and Rocco. xx
Hi Dolly here ,
6 months I’ve been at my new home. I’ve got lots of toys and get fed well.
I go for lots of walks and am enjoying my life.
My mum and dad say I’ve made their lives happy.
I am writing a letter on behalf of Muffin. We adopted her a few days ago in Harlow and she has settled really well! She is a lovely bouncy puppy and she is always up for some fuss! She is very good in the home and already seems to know how to behave, she will be going for some training classes soon to get her some new tricks in training. We would like to thank Mutts in Distress for the lovely opportunity of letting us rehome this lovely pup! She’s very happy here 🙂
Hello lovely people,
I just want to say that we love our new addition whom we brought home on Tuesday. He is Jesse,the sweet Alsatian. He is everything you said and more. We call him our gentle giant. He loves his walks and has already adopted the settee.
We have yet to hear him bark! I would guess wherever he came from, he had some command training. He sits at kerbs, sits for his dinner and can open the kitchen door when he’s been in the garden. So we have a wonderful boy. Not a bad bone in his large body. Yep,we love him.
Thank you for all your wonderful work. Updates in due course.
Pauline & Jeff Andrews.

About 18 months or so ago, you helped me with homing a lovely Staffy boy I found tied up to a tree almost choking to death. You gave me a the names of a couple of rescues and phoned around as you were so full and just had no room at the inn. I always check back on your site and am cheered by the work you do with so many wonderful animals. I read today that you need dog food urgently. I have ordered 24 tins of Chappie to be delivered to you. You should get them soon. I read on your site how badly needed they are. I hope they fill some tummys. I’ll spread the word about your appeal for funds also through my Facebook account, friends, family and colleagues. The Staffy you helped me with was finally rehomed in Wales and for that, I will always have a soft spot for your organisation. With very best regards,
Hello, do you remember me?
I am Dolly. I am really happy in my new home.
My photo is a bit sleepy looking but I’ve just had dinner.
Hope you are all well.
The Huttley Family and Dolly.
