Current Status: Available


Dylan needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Dylan's owner died, he was given to drug dealers and handed back to family terrified. He was kept in the empty flat until it had to be given back. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Dylan's life. Dylan has been in emergency kennels awaiting for a kennel to become free from us, so now transport being arranged. Dylan will be neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated.

Dylan has already come a long way from the time his owner died & in desperation was given to druggies who neglected him and abused him. He is learning to trust again but needs just the right family to nurture and understand his frailties. Dylan is 200 % Staffie in affection...but is actively searching for love & stability. A little boy lost who needs to find himself in a family enveloped in love. Mr Tambourine

Dylan's Thread below: Watch progress through our Rescue Original Referral: Please remember this is the information we received from the referrer. Once a dog is with us and we begin to work with them and unpack them they can and often do reveal positive skills trust and transform behaviours March 2016: Hi Lynne sorry but I have to ask you for help just been alerted to a little tiny Staffie boy! He is abandoned in a flat, owner has died and is a complete mess!!!! Dylan is not microchipped nor is he neutered. So we need to move him urgently. The owner's daughter had given him to some drug dealers who have given him back and we have had an independent assessor go in to see him. They said he has clearly been beaten and battered around the head since the owner has died and is just absolutely terrified. The owner's daughter is too scared of him to go into the flat so they are leaving food and water down for him and newspaper to toilet on the poor little thing in there and has been in there on his own since owner Ill/died. Lynne I am absolutely begging you for help I really really want to get this little dog out today I am desperate to save his life they are putting to sleep at the end of the week. Cathy xxxx

Dylan is a heart breaker...he carries his sad past but his Staffie love is there when he relaxes.

Early days: Scott couldnt get the trust and stillness required to put a harness on, so played it calm and friendly and lead Dylan up by his collar. Dylan showed interest in the middle crate but no wasn't going to jump in so we presented him with another crate in the back of of the dog mobile and with a little magic he found himself in the crate and heading to our vets. He is all over the place when on a lead and he reminds me of Diesel who has just come into us, both over awed by the being involved in ordinary experiences again having come out of the darkness. Dylan did very well in the vets and we managed to slip a muzzle on and he had premed. When you have a nervous dog you have to really think through things thoroughly and we agreed to do neuter, chip and 1st vax...+ a very thorough health overview whilst he was under eg anal glands ears teeth etc. as he isnt going to deal to too intrusive examinations after. I drove away only to remember new collar with disc and harness, placed on him whilst under, as we are going to leave his harness on him for ease for walks. I drove back and found Dylan had been done, all was well. I put his new collar and harness on whilst he was wobbling around recovering from the GenA. He had lots of nose to nose encounters with Babs through her vet door very friendly. Bless his heart. With a little help he went back into the back crate.

We drove to drop Mika off and collect Poppy & Beau then took them to the vets for 2nd vax...then dropped them off and drove on to Gatwick and dropped my front passenger Daisy to Gat. So Mr Man would you like to join me in the front? ..yes he would. Dylan was soon trusting and I was getting licks whenever I called him a good boy he couldn't get enough affection! A little active for the front seat and did get his restraining lead wrapped about his leg on one occasion but did settle to watch the moving scenery and we were close friends by the end.

When we got out at the kennels I gave him his first freedom and he got totally lost in it freedom non responsive to my calls...lovely to see him freewheeling

So we took Dylan slowly and with caution but actually given time and no restrictive actions he is trusting and friendly. He had a swollen upper muzzle which isn't too noticeable but it must be the result of physical abuse. I purposefully stroked it as I did all over he is welcoming to kindness and affirming physical touch. Not closed down just his mind a little amazed and overawed and in that way he needs to go slowly, as he learns Rescue is a new life filled with loving kindness.

I was so sad to hear poor Dylan's story, I just wanted to take him out and give him lots of cuddles. He seemed quite happy to meet me, he came over briefly for a couple of cuddles but then he was off sniffing around and exploring. We passed a couple of other dogs on our walk but he wasn't bothered by them. After walking for a bit I tried to take a couple of pics, he wasn't ready to pose for pics just yet as there was still a lot of exploring to do but he came over and gave me a few staffie kisses Kiss of love.gif On the way back we came to a road and a car was coming so I stopped and told him to sit which he did straight away, such a good boy love4.gif

Poor Dylan has had such a bad time. I walked him this afternoon and he was friendly and trusting. By the end of our walk we were good friends. He's a sweet boy. He didn't feel like posing for the camera but I did get a handsome profile shot which I will try to post.

Dylan seemed raring to go out for a walk today. We walked through the streets to the country park - without being told Dylan showed impeccable manners and sat at the kerb waiting to cross the road.
He seemed a friendly chap.
