Maisie (Rescue Remedies Dog Rescue, kennelled Surrey)


Adorable Maisie is a beautiful Staffy lady of around 8 years of age who has sadly been waiting far too long at Rescue Remedies to find her perfect home. Maisie is being well cared for at Rescue Remedies’ kennels in Surrey, and she has a loyal legion of walkers who visit her and give her lots of attention, but what Maisie really needs is a loving, forever home of her own.


Maisie is a loving and adorable soul who sadly did not have the best start in life. This poor girl was used as a breeding machine and kept in a flat for several years until she was of no use anymore! Since then her whole life has been in kennels and when she first arrived, she was emotionally shut down and extremely scared of everyone around her. Poor Maisie! How this beautiful girl who has so much love to give could be treated this way is heartbreaking.


With plenty of love and TLC, Maisie has slowly shown herself to be a gorgeous girl inside and out. Like most Staffies, she absolutely adores being with people and is always happy to see you with her wagging tail. She would be happiest as the only dog in her home. She is getting much better being with other dogs and enjoys going out for walks with them, but she can still be a little nervous around other dogs. Besides, after spending her whole life in kennels, she really deserves to be the centre of someone’s world!


Maisie loves having attention and human company! She would be happy just having cuddles and fuss all day long. She is okay with the children she has met and could probably live with older, dog-savvy children who could play with her and give her a lot of attention.


Maisie absolutely loves going for walks and enjoys exploring the world around her. She enjoys having a good run and if there is a puddle to jump in, then all the better! She loves plenty of interaction and likes to play. She still has plenty of life in her and doesn’t act like an older dog at all! She is good in the house and is fully housetrained.


Maisie has had the opportunity to live in several short-term foster homes while she has been in Rescue Remedies’s care. She has enjoyed her time in the home and made a perfect and loving house guest. Additionally, there are plenty of volunteers who come to visit her and take her for walks. They cannot say enough good things about this lovely girl. Here is just a short sample of what they say about Maisie:

‘Maisie needs to be an only pet and she will be AMAZING. Beautiful soul inside and out and adored by all.’

‘Maisie is delightful, happy and always welcomes me into her kennel as if she had not seen me for weeks albeit perhaps a very short period! Love this girl so so much.’

‘Maisie really loves people and everyone she has met has commented on how lovely she is and how she’s such a good girl. She loves to climb on your lap for a proper cuddle and even wraps her arms around you! She’s really amazing and deserves a lovely home.’


Maisie would love to find a loving home where she can enjoy a long and happy retirement and a nice warm bed of her own.  She will make a fantastic companion to the right person as she has so much love to give and is a real joy to have around.
