Six Saluki Whippet cross puppies, who were no longer wanted, are in search of their forever homes.

Rolo, Minstrel, Bounty, Skittles, Cadbury and Twirl, were brought into London-based charity, Mayhew, after their previous owner couldn’t cope.

Mayhew’s Dog Adoption Officer, Lisa Guiney, said, “We had a call from the owner who informed us that the pups were an accidental litter and that they were no longer in a position to care for them.

“At Mayhew we do get a number of unwanted litters that are brought into us due to owners not getting their pets neutered. Neutering not only helps reduce the number of unwanted pets ending up in rescue shelters, but it can also help improve your pet’s health by heavily reducing their chances of developing certain cancers or diseases.

“We provide low-cost neutering at our Community Vet Clinic and we also offer free neutering for bull breed dogs that are associated with overbreeding.

“At Mayhew we do not judge and we are here to assist and advise on the best course of action for the animal, no matter what the problem is.”


The six-months-old siblings were given a bath by Mayhew’s Kennels Team and a thorough health check by their Vet Team. They’ve received flea and worm treatment, as well as being neutered and fully vaccinated.


Mayhew’s Dog Adoption Officer, Lisa Guiney, added, “They have different personalities – some are more confident and playful than others, but they are all adorable and just looking for a safe new place that they can call home.

“We are looking for adopters who have plenty of time on their hands to continue with their training and socialisation, so that they can all grow up to be well-behaved adult dogs.”
