Breed Welfare & Rescue

Could you offer a home to an ETT in need?

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 register your details and subscribe to receive email alerts below.

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.

The English Toy Terrier (black & tan) Club is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers and funded

exclusively by voluntary donations. Offering welfare support to all English Toy Terriers in the U.K. is a key

part of the constitution of The Club.

 

The aim of Breed Welfare:

 

  • To relieve the suffering of English Toy Terrier’s in need of care and attention, including those who find themselves in difficulties due to a change in their owner’s circumstances.
  • Offering both long and short term rehoming and fostering support for ETT’s throughout the U.K.

 

Responsibilities:

 

 

1. ETT Club members and non – members have a moral responsibility for every English Toy Terrier they have bred for its whole life.

In the event of any unforeseen circumstances requiring rehoming or fostering the breeder should be prepared to take the dog back or assist in it’s re-homing.

The English Toy Terrier welfare team will assist wherever possible with obtaining potential new owners using all means available including social media/website posts.

The dog’s current owners or breeders contact details will be given to interested persons but the arrangements for re-homing are between the current owner or the breeder and the new owner.

The club accepts no responsibility for any incurred expenses, as these are the responsibility of the current owner or breeder.

 

 

2. If the breeder cannot be established or is unable to participate then the club will assist the current owner as much as practicably possible.

Success Stories

 

The English Toy Terrier (Black & Tan) Club Welfare and Rescue has completed many successful rescues and rehomes over the years, with the dedication of many Welfare officers and club members.

Though it’s sad when any dog needs to find a new home, there is often a very happy ending.

I have owned ETTs for 16 years. In the last few years since I retired, I have helped foster and rehome them. It has been a joyful experience.

The club tries to match you with a dog suitable to your circumstances, and is on hand to answer questions and give help in so many ways. I have now fostered five dogs and have kept 3 of them.

It’s rewarding to give something back to a delightful breed which has given me so much joy over the years. This club is so forward thinking and caring about all aspects of the ETT. It’s a pleasure to be part of a club which cares for its dogs and its members.

Mo, North Yorkshire

Owner of 3 rescue ETTs

Rufus

Sadly, Rufus’ elderly owner was no longer able to care for his needs. He needed to find an experienced and patient owner who could help him cope with some of his troubles. He tried out a few loving homes until he found one that was just right for him. 

“Rufus is my latest rehome. He is a gentle giant who just needs to know who is pack leader and what the house rules are. He has fitted into our household seamlessly and I hope this is his forever home.”

 

Jessie

Due some big changes to family life, Jessie’s owner was no longer able to give her the time and attention she deserved. 

“I drove to Northampton to pick her up (many tears on both sides), brought her home, introduced her to my 15 year old ETT Polly (now deceased) and she fitted in like a dream. I have now had her for 3 years.” 

Ozzy & Dibley

Ozzy and Dibley were placed in kennels whilst their owners were away but unfortunately they did not thrive in that environment and were losing weight rapidly. The Club helped to find a foster carer who could take care of them until they returned.

“Knowing that I rehomed ETTs in the past, the Club Welfare Officer contacted me for help. I looked after them for nearly 3 weeks over Christmas. They thrived with me and I am delighted to say they went home to their owner healthy and happy.” 

 

 

 

Toby

Toby’s owners led a busy lifestyle and were unable to put in the time required to successfully train him. They turned to the Club to help find a new home. 

“I stepped up to the plate and drove to the other side of Lincoln to collect him. He fitted in straight away, and is now in his second year with me.”
