Always a soft touch for dogs in distress, Liam recently rescued a beautiful Springer Spaniel from what may have been her final resting place at the vets.
Now named ‘Lucky’, this fortunate pup is undergoing rehabilitation and socialising for re-homing at our kennels near Hailsham, where Liam is happy to give up his time for such a worthy cause.
Lucky has a nervous disposition due to previous bad treatment but is warming to her trainers and beginning to relieve her shyness around other dogs with the help of her new companion, ‘Poppy’ – another Springer Spaniel currently being trained by Liam and the AGK9 team.
Liam says Lucky will finish her training towards the end of March when she will join other Waifs & Strays’ dogs needing a home.
If you would like further information about Lucky please do get in touch.
AlphaGuardK9’s professional dog trainers featured at the Waifs & Strays Family Fun Day on 25th May in Seaford, Sussex.
Headed by Liam and Niall Hastings, their canine partners and guest appearances from Waifs & Strays’ own furry friends, the father and son team are pleased to report a great demonstration entertained the event’s early morning visitors, and the fundraising day proved very successful for our dog rescue organisation.
We look forward to the next Waifs & Strays event, where we will no doubt perform again. In the meantime, our demo team of professional security dog handlers and canine partners are available for events throughout the UK – contact us for further details – and follow further fundraising news on the dedicated Waifs & Strays Fundraising page on Facebook:

AlphaGuardK9 has recently teamed up with Sue Phillips – formerly owner of Seaford Dog Rescue – to extend and improve the service provided by Waifs & Strays Dog Rescue, now based in Seaford in East Sussex.
A non-profit organisation to help and re-home stray and abandoned dogs in Sussex, Waifs & Strays provide shelter, training and ongoing support for stray dogs while they await a new ‘Forever Home’.
Liam and Niall Hastings of AlphaGuardK9 provide re-habilitation training for the dogs – with the help of local volunteers, behaviourists and a vet – and essential on-going support and fundraising is organised and provided by Sue.

If you are not already aware, AlphaGuardK9 are running a dog rescue group on Facebook to help cope with the increased number of abandoned dogs we are dealing with in Sussex and the surrounding area.
This essential service for lost and stray dogs was borne from our work with local councils providing an out-of-hours Stray Dog Collection service, and we would like to thank all of those already involved.
We always need foster homes for these poor pups, and are working towards charity status, so please help us by spreading the word.
