Carrie needs a home !!

progress update: 10/07/2020

Following the photo of Carrie which was taken upon her arrival to the Rescue a month ago,
we are so pleased to be able to share these pics taken today
she has gained weight and her wounds have healed nicely
amazing what some TLC can achieve

Poor Carrie arrived to us in not a good state of health.

Covered in scars with a few open wounds and very thin as well.

In the last few weeks her wounds have healed, she is putting on weight and become more confident.

We will post more recent photos this week.

This is one that was taken soon after she arrived.

If you may be able to offer a home

please call Helen on 01202 380467

Phone calls & messages are usually only taken during office hours Mon – Sat.

Emails and Facebook messages can usually only be responded to within 3 days,

so please be patient if you don’t get an answer straight away:

Helen is often too busy to explain how busy she is!

We usually only rehome within approx. 50 miles of the Bournemouth / Poole area
so that we can ensure the continued well-being of the dogs in our care.
We will only rehome further afield if the homes are exceptional.
We are NOT looking for just ANY home that is offered.
All potential homes will be assessed to try and ensure the best possible home
to cater for the differing needs of each individual dog that we rescue

Rodg is doing so well and settling into our home!
His separation anxiety has got so much better.
We’ve managed to leave him for about 3 hours without him stressing!
He just sleeps! Xx

CHESTER’S STORY

I am just a little lad
My start in life was very bad
My owners – they just didn’t care
If I was – or wasn’t there

Almost every single night
They would argue, they would fight
But you could always guarantee
They’d take their anger out on me

To get away I really tried
But there was nowhere to hide
Very luckily for me
One day they did both agree

They didn’t want me anymore
So I was booted out the door
A nice lady came and took me away
In a dogs home I went to stay

There were many dogs like me
Waiting of a family
Waiting for someone to come
And give them all a happy home

People would come and take one away
I was always the one to stay
The months did turn into a year
And I was feeling safe in there

If interest someone did show
I didn’t really want to know
This was the place I wanted to be
Coz nobody was hurting me

But the dreaded day did come
When someone came to take me home
Oh no – Please do let me stay
My life was put in disarray

Please don’t let it start again
And I am put through all that pain
A shout, a kick and then a slap
Please don’t send me back to that

Part 2

I was given a basket full of toys
Even some that made a noise
They were very, very, very kind
But those early days were on my mind

So I made it very clear
That I didn’t want them near
Day after day after day after day
Behind the curtain I would stay

Another favourite place to be
Was tucked away behind the settee
I know it wasn’t very nice
But I bit my owners more than twice

So I waited for a clout
But they didn’t even shout
Six months went by and then a year
And I began to lose my fear

Every day they talked to me
And the patience that was shown to me
Any fool could clearly see
That no harm would ever come to me

Now they are my bestest friends
And this is where my story ends
At last I know I will always be
Part of a loving family

Lili

REHOMED

progress update: 17/06/2020

7 years ago, almost to the day we took on Lili. Lili was a DAWG rescue from Ireland. She came over with a few medical issues and some severe stress problems. She was adopted by a lovely couple, but after a few months they were in a position where she hadn’t settled properly with them. I’d got to know Lili by this point and she had a bond with my other dog. We decided to step in and take her on. Since then she’s had one hip replaced, then after 5 years removed in an emergency operation when it failed. we then had 6 months and a load of physiotherapy and aqua therapy to strengthen the floating joint. Then the second hip was finally replaced. Again a load of crate rest, restricted exercise for months and follow up xrays. During this period, we were emigrating to Spain with the menagerie, and our departure date was delayed several months to allow Lili to have her second hip replacement operation at Anderson Moors specialist vets. This meant she was getting the best treatment possible. Thankfully her insurance picked up all but a couple of thousand of the cost for the 3 operations.

The first photo was taken on the first day of her being allowed to have a 20 minute off lead walk with her ‘brother’ Skia. Lili is the smaller collie on the left. We moved to a small farm in the countryside miles away from anywhere so that the dogs and cats could have lots of space. The dogs have an acre field enclosed outside the house to run in as much as they like. We’re surrounded by mountains and beautiful quiet walks. The photo is taken in another of our fields in the woods behind the house. Her joy was absolutely palpable.The second photo was taken this spring. A year on from the move and her being released from crate rest. Lili has now been with us for 7 delightful years. We’ve used dog listening techniques to remove all of her stress. She now happily goes in the car, walks on the lead, recalls, and leaves the cats alone! She’s coped with all the building work and has made all the builders fall in love with her. One chap is scared silly of dogs and he adores her so much he has to cuddle her and gets really excited when she’s around him. She is simply the most adorable dog I’ve ever met.

Thank you DAWGs for bringing her into our lives. We would be lesser people without her grin and snuggles. I am looking forward to many more years in her company. We wouldn’t have her if it wasn’t for you all and your dedication to the abandoned dogs of the UK

He is such a delight and still has his very cheeky character about him.
