Name:Frankie

11 yrs old

UPDATE

Frankie came into Rescue in August 2017. His previous owners had struggled to keep weight on him and he was very thin. Due to serious health issues they were unable to cope with Frankie’s special needs and made the heartbreaking decision to place him in our care.

 

Frankie gained a little weight while in Rescue and became a little more active. He enjoyed short walks and camping holidays as part of a loving family.

 

He was treated for reflux and arthritis as well as receiving other supplements to keep him comfortable but even when his appetite increased he still didn’t gain very much weight and remained in foster care, closely monitored. Frankie was also suspected to be suffering with mild dementia.

 

Frankie was by no means and easy foster dog and demanded a great deal of care and attention which his foster home gave to him along with unconditional love.

 

 After 14 months in foster care, Frankie gave up his fight and his foster family said their goodbyes last week. 

 

We will miss him terribly and he has left a paw print on the hearts of everyone that met him. Run free Frankie, you will be deeply missed by us all xxx

Charlie

This little girl came into rescue in October 2011. At 5 years old she had already had at least 6 homes, making this her 7th stop! It took a long time for her to build up a trust and she had many issues. Her issues were easily resolved while her foster Mum was present but her behaviour changed when foster Mum wasn’t there. Her unpredictable behaviour made her unsuitable for rehoming and she remained in permanent foster care. Charlie lived as part of her foster family for 6 years and was loved by the whole family. She enjoyed going camping and lived a happy life. Sadly in October 2017, Charlie was rushed to the vet and diagnosed with pneumonia. She was hospitalised and put on intravenous medication and a full recovery was expected. Unfortunately, Charlie did not respond to treatment and her condition deteriorated rapidly and her foster mum had to say a heartbreaking goodbye.

Name: Marge

Date of birth/age: 14 yrs old

Date dog came in to rescue: Jan 2017

Dog/bitch: Bitch

H/L PP: Hairless

Colour: Black / white

Good with: dogs: ok cats: ok kids: older dog savvy children

How long can the dog be left for:  short periods

Any known medical/health issues: 

Marge's trip to the vets did not go as we had hoped. Marge has a large abdominal mass as well as the mammary mass. If we open her up to see how far it has spread then it is likely that it is not operable and we will need to let her go under the anaesthetic. Since Marge is not in any pain at this time we have taken the decision to keep her in foster and keep her happy and comfortable. She has medication which we hope will be of some help to her but ultimately we hope that she will get some love and happiness before she has to go to the Rainbow Bridge. We have a very loving and brave foster mummy to care for her until that time comes.

The abdominal mass had grown quite quickly and it was time to let her go. RIP Marge.

Little bit about the dog: Jack has come on in leaps and bounds since coming into the Rescue. He has passed his basic dog training and is now a confident loving people friendly dog.

Pud's heart finally gave in and Pud is now at rest.

This is Schmendrick. He is approx 4 yrs old. When he came into Rescue he skipped occasionally on his front leg and this has been monitored while he has been in our care. Schmendrick became lame on that leg on a walk and was taken to the vet to have it checked. The vet thinks that there is no nerve supply to the muscle and this may have deteriorated over a long period of time even though he had previously been bouncing around he had been compensating with the other leg. Schmendrick is on medication and we will monitor him over the next 3-4 weeks to see if there is any improvement but Schmendrick may lose his leg. 
UPDATE:
Unfortunately Schmendrick's leg is not responding to treatment and the vet thinks the best outcome would be to amputate the leg. Schmendrick can not use the leg at all. The operation will be around £650.
As Schmendrick is a Rescue dog, we do not have any insurance to cover his vet fees and his treatment can be very expensive. The specialist consultation fee is approx £200. If you can help towards the cost of Schmendricks vet fees please text donate or you can donate via paypal.
UPDATE
It is with great sadness that we inform everyone that Schmendrick had a setback in his recovery and he lost the use of his other front leg. We now know that Schmendrick had a neurological problem and this has sadly spread. It was only a matter of time before he would have succumbed to it all over his body. We have had to make the sad decision to let him go. We want to thank his foster mum who's worked tirelessly to help Schmendrick in caring for him; she did everything in her power to love and care for him while he has been in the rescue. Schmendrick was full of character and we are all deeply saddened to lose him.

Holly

 

Holly became critically ill following a routine spay. She was rushed to the emergency vets placed on IV fluids, pain killers, antibiotics, anti - sickness and antacid medication. Holly was given everything possible but sadly she didn’t make it. The vet suspected that she had an underlying problem and being spayed had triggered the final reaction that no one could foresee.

We are very sad that Sweet Pea was in such poor health that the kindest thing we could do for her was to let her go. She was in constant pain with her joints which had a massive effect on her mobility, her teeth were also causing her problems but she was not fit enough to undergo anaesthetic and she also had respiratory problems. The pain relief the vet had given her was not sufficient to give her any quality of life. This is never an easy decision but sadly one that must be made. R.I.P little one xxx
