Zeus from Snetterton (Norfolk)

I lost my bullmastiff 3 years ago and I was heartbroken I decided I wanted to give another dog a home I was searching everyday for another mastiff but was unable to find one that was suitable for my home I saw Zeus and fell in love straight away! He has now been with me 3 years yesterday! We had doggy cake to celebrate and peanut butter and banana treats and a lovely walk to his favourite woodland🙂 he has been a challenge for myself as was very reactive on the lead nervous of cars etc but we have been doing training classes and overcome some of these problems.

Reuben from Snetterton (Norfolk)

We first went to the trust after unfortunately loosing our first rescue didn't go as planned, so we are unsure about getting another dog, However when we see Reubens picture up on the website we couldn't help ourselves and had to see him, and with that being said my partner feel in love with him straight away as did I, we visited him 3 times before we took him home and each time he saw us through the glass he was bouncy and happy to see us, once we got him home he settled in straight away, he is such a character.

Milo from Basildon (Essex)

When I first saw milo's picture on your website I knew that he was perfect for us, I don't even know why? As soon as I got to basildon dogs trust movement through to have a look at him, he was gazing out of the back door window but as soon as I walked up and I was very quiet he turned around and ran to the front and looked me in the eye and as far as I'm concerned it was that moment that we both knew that he was ment to be with me, I waited around a bit till I was able to meet him and they had concerns that's he was a little unruly and didn't really mix with new people but I told them to let him come to me and he didn't stop licking me and I had him in a big bear hug in seconds, which took everyone at the centre by surprise and we haven't looked back since, he loves going to the beach and he's a good boy off lead, he gets on really well with Skylar our Siberian husky and he loves everyone, he really as a fantastic boy in every way and we love him so much and to think someone could give him away is crazy as he's a perfect husky boy, he loves his food,walks,huggs,playing and is not destructive at all which is unheard of in husky world, he really is just a beautiful loving and playful fluffy boy who melts hearts everywhere he goes.

Evie from Salisbury (Wiltshire)

We only went to walk the dogs and then one day we saw this little old lady, she nearly fell out of her bed to get to us, this was love at first sight, we enquired but we where told she hadnt been fully assessed, we prepared to say goodbye thinking it was fate, just about to wall oot the door when we where called back, the rest is history that was 4 years ago now, Evie and I have two walks a day, she comes everywhere with me, she is our world, I can't imagine my life without her, we took her to Spain with us when we went for 4 weeks and my little old girl took it all in her stride, she's loving life and so are We, we just wanted to give an old dog a loving and forever home.

Buddy (was Biskit) from Kenilworth (West Midlands)

When we first saw Buddy (was Biskit) on the website, we fell in love, but he was reserved before we could get to the centre, so we went to have a look around the centre only to find Buddy was available, it was fate, that was the Saturday, and by the Thursday he was home with us!!!! He is just fabulous, he settled in straight away, and over the past 2 months his playful side has really come out, he loves his toys and he LOVES being made a fuss of, he is a very sociable boy who loves making new friends on his walks.

Bowdy from Bridgend (Wales)

Fell in love as soon as we saw bowdy, he really is a beaut of a boy with so much love to give and plenty of energy to burn off, he has made our home and lives whole again in the space of half a day, he is my outdoor mountain walking companion and definitely a mamnys boy, we have so much love for this handsome boy and he will want for nothing, a massive credit to the staff and volunteers for all the hard work they put in to keep the dogs safe and build and nurture them ready for thier forever sofa.

Joey from Kenilworth (West Midlands)

This was joey formaly known as scamp, we adopted him in 2006/07 unfortunately we lost him unexpectedly last summer however the years we had with him were the best he was always a happy chappy, he loved food even if it wasnt his well especially if it wasnt his we couldn't have asked for a better dog he was always there to comfort you whenever anyone needed cheering up he could always sense it when you needed your spirits lifting If he was having a cuddle with you if you ever stopped fussing him he would ever so subtlety lick your hand to make you continue.

Sierra from Bridgend (Wales)

When i went to dogs trust that super hot sunday, i was never expecting to walk around he corner and see my dream dog in one of the rooms, Si was laying in the bed and the back of the room, she didn't seem interested but i KNEW i had to have this beautiful girl, the second visit came earlier than expected as i just couldn't wait to see her again, the second time she saw us and she was so excited "They're back! the humans came back" when i went to pick her up i was the worst person and i began to cry! Trying so desperately to hide my tears!!1 Sierra has now been living with us for just over a month, and i cannot thank dogs trust enough for allowing us to take this amazing animal home with us, they say you're saving a dog from a rescue, but this dog definitely saved me.
