Angels Dog Rescue


When looking for man’s best friend you want to make sure everything is perfect but the internet is jam packed full of breeders, private sellers and rescues its often hard to know which one to choose!

So, when we decided to look for a pooch I did the only thing I could trust… I contacted a good friend and dog walker/fosterer for some advice. I told her what we were looking for and she advised looking for a rescue. One rescue that she highly recommended was Angels Small Paws Dog Rescue.

Angels Small Paws Dog Rescue are a rescue based in Derby that is run by Chrissy Marshall and 3 other trustees. There are also many wonderful people helping with fostering, grooming and training the dogs who need it most.

Angels went solo approx. 7 years ago and have saved over 2000 dogs to date! Their aim is to help reduce the number of dogs being put to sleep by offering a safe haven whilst waiting for their happy ever afters.

So, when I contacted Chrissy back in 2014 she ran through a few questions like who was in the family? What kind of hours we were home? How active were we? Etc. She was so lovely and really helped us in any way she could.

After listening to all our needs etc she ‘matched’ us with a lovely dog called Louie. We arranged to meet him as soon as possible and we absolutely fell head over heels in love. In March 2014, we adopted him and have never looked back!

We contacted Chrissy again in 2016 when we liked the sound of one of their dogs on the Facebook page called Eddie. Again, the whole process was amazing and we adopted Eddie the Pomeranian after our first meeting.

Louie and Eddie get on fantastically and are inseparable. They fit in perfectly with our family and even our 2 Maine Coon’s love them! The support from Angels Small Paws Dog Rescue, even after adopting both boys, has been second to none and they’re always there to help.
