Breed Welfare & Rescue


Could you offer a home to an ETT in need?


Rufus is a 9 year old boy looking for a loving home. He’s an affectionate companion and still loves his long walks, but is happy hanging in doors all day snoozing too. He loves exploring in parks and is happy in cars, taxis, buses, and trains, and loves going on new adventures.

This loving boy is looking for a special home with an experienced dog owner that has time and experience to help him with his separation anxiety, and would love another female dog to keep him company. He is not suited for a home where he is alone for more than a few hours during the day.

Please feel free to share with anyone who may be able to help.

Very occasionally an English Toy Terrier or its owner may fall on hard times. The English Toy Terrier (Black & Tan) Club welfare is here to offer help and support tailored to the needs of the dog and its owners circumstances.

The ETT Club’s dedicated welfare volunteers work with individuals, rescue centres and animal welfare organisations to secure the best outcome for any ETT in need. We rely on donations to fund our work but most importantly we need adopters and foster carers who are prepared to offer a loving home.

Typically each year less than a handful of ETTs need our help however, matching the dogs to the right foster carer or adopter can be a challenging. If you would like to offer your home to an English toy terrier in need of rescue, please subscribe to our rehome register below to receive alerts when a dog is in need.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the club if you are aware of an ETT or ETT owner in need. The Club’s welfare and rescue work is undertaken with discretion and sensitivity.

If you know of an ETT at risk or that you believe is being neglected or mistreated contact the RSPCA without delay as well as Club Secretary Pat Newton.

Note to owners, breeders, foster homes and adopters
English Toy Terrier (Black & Tan) Club member breeders are responsible for every dog they have breed for its whole life. Non-club member breeders have a moral obligation to do the same. Breeders must be prepared to take back and assist in the re-homing of any English Toy Terrier they have bred.

In the event of circumstances requiring temporary fostering or rehoming, owners should always try to contact the dog’s breeder in the first instance. The owner, breeder, foster home or adopter must satisfy themselves as to the suitability of the temporary or new home. The Club accepts no liability for the suitability, compatibility or continuing care of any dog fostered or re-homed through the breeder.

The Club acts as an intermediary or “go between” liaising with the breeder and the current owner and foster carer/adopter, offering practical help where possible.

The club reserves the right to reclaim any legitimate expenses incurred from the breeder. In cases where the breeder refuses or is unable to take responsibility, or cannot be traced, the club will act as if it were the owner, in the best interests of the dog without liability.
