Dogs in our Sanctuary
At Applegarth Dog Rescue we rescue and rehome dogs from both the UK and abroad. Sometimes we would like to offer a safe place to dogs who are unlikely to be rehomed due to their age, health or behavioural issues. These dogs are cared for at Applegarth and remain with us in the Sanctuary to live out their natural lives in a safe, happy, comfortable and loving environment.
Dogs available to sponsor are below. Every penny helps towards their care either for food, vets bills or keeping them comfortable in their living space (bedding/toys etc.). If you would like to sponsor any of our animals please email us.
Dylan is around two years old and has had quite a few changes in his short life.
He was in a foster home with a lovely family and their rescue dog, but unfortunately he took a dislike to his foster dad and, despite trying everything to help Dylan relax, he bit his dad several times. Clearly Dylan wasn't a happy boy, so he was temporarily housed in kennels while an alternative solution was found. Sadly, Dylan found kennels very stressful and became reactive towards the kennel staff.
Applegarth's founder, Jo, heard about Dylan and, being used to caring for dogs with issues, offered to try rehabilitating him. Of course, as soon as he arrived on the doorstep, Jo fell in love with him and immediately began working on his anxiety issues. With hard work and love, Dylan has become less reactive to the people around him. However, he still has his moments, so Jo decided that he would stay with her and become an Applegarth Sanctuary Dog.
Dylan now enjoys his daily walk and cuddles on the sofa, and is also learning to accept people in the home. You can find out more about Dylan's progress on our Facebook Page.
