Martha's Story: Martha was found abandoned and unclaimed within an East London council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving her life. Martha is now neutered, chipped, and undergoing vaccinations. Martha came in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting her new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and we will only contact you if we have a suitable dog. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum Adoption Donation is £250 (£400 for pup under 1 yr old). 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 in particular. 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.
Martha's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Original referral information: 17th October 23 I appreciate you must be inundated with requests for help at this present time, however I feel I must reach out in the hope that can throw a lifeline to this lovely puppy. Martha a young Staffie cross between 8 and 10 months of age who is in a pound and will be euthanised on Wednesday, 18th October, unless a rescue space can be found for her. She has passed her assessment at the pound and is a friendly girl who gets on well with both people and other dogs but has understandably become a bit scared in the pound environment. If you can offer a space for Martha or help in any other way, please return email or phone. Thank you for your time.
Kind regards, Maria

Martha came into RescueRemedies on the 20th October 23

Wow! Martha is an absolute sweetie. Such a friendly girl love4.gif
We went to the paddock so that Carla could take some pics and she did 3 laps at top speed before having fun chasing balls.
We then went for a walk. No pulling on the leads, just gentle walking. Martha said hello to Zeus, Bobby and then Diesel through the paddock fencing in a very friendly fashion and wanted to just make friends.
Beautiful girl who i can't wait to meet again. Kiss of love.gif

Martha is a lovely gentle girl. She sat very patiently while I fitted her harness and listens to instructions. She did pull strongly at the start of the walk towards the dogs in the kennels nearby (not aggressively), which necessitated using a very short lead and walking as far away as we could from their doors. Once that hurdle was over she was much calmer and an absolute joy to walk, walking on slack leads the whole way. I was alert just in case we saw a squirrel as apparently she can pull towards them, but luckily we saw none and Martha ambled along interested in all the smells. At the start of the walk she had a few bouts of digging and rolling around on the ground, and on the common she very nearly rolled in something smelly but I managed to distract her at the last moment!
She absolutely loves paddling in the deep puddles that are in the lane at the moment. I don't know if she had ever been in one before - it was really wonderful to watch her enjoying splashing around and biting the bubbles in the water, I think she could have done that all day!

Martha is a sweet little girl, once I’d said hello she was all tail wagging and excitement to get out for a walk.

She initially wanted to jump about and say hello to all the other dogs as we passed their kennels, but as soon as we passed the last kennel she settled down for a lovely exploration of the woods.

To avoid the worst of the mud we headed to the more open common area, and she walked beautifully on her lead. The exiting smells eventually got the better of her and she had a couple of joyful rolls in the long grass. After a quick untangle of leads and legs we walked on and crossed a bridge or two before heading back.

We could hear the voices of other dog walkers as we re-entered the woods and her interest was clear, in a friendly but not over excited way. We kept our distance to ensure no over excitement, and Martha waited patiently with me for a clear path back.

Once safely back in her kennel, with a few treats and strokes and her temporary cone back in place, we shared a final goodbye. I look forward to seeing this very pretty and well behaved walking buddy again soon.
