Rescued With Love

The Lost Dogs Home have asked the question of myself and RWL on their FB page.

"what is so different?
β€˜Any aggression issues with the dog is dealt with immediately. No excuses. Euthanasia is always decided by 2 behaviourists, our vet, the foster carer and myself’."

Do they think they euthanising dogs is the same as how and when I euthanise dogs?

1. Aggression issues are always dealt with immediately.
This does not mean we kill them there and then. We see what the situation was that brought about the aggression. ie another dog off lead misbehaving? A trigger such as food? Being terrified in the pound?

2. We then discuss everything goes on the table.

3. Is there an option we can work with? Such as - a home for a dog with no other pets? No small children? A family who are experienced with a certain breed? Someone who can handle a trigger such as food guarding, walking dogs separate to anyone else where there are no other dogs? Often we can find an answer.

4. The resolution is then implemented. And monitored. And if we feel it is handled - it's fine.

5. If there is escalation - we contact behaviourists. Speak with them, listen to their advice. If we need to - they stay with a behaviourist for training and for observation. This has worked well for us.

6.If there is continued escalation and there is no trigger, unprovoked aggression and danger involved - we euthanise.

And this is different from the LDH how?

The dog is in foster care - not in a shelter. He/she is being assessed by people who have seen them, not a panel or committee who have not. We take on advice from behaviourists and our vets. We listen to the foster carers, the RWL Committee.

Should euthanasia be performed the dog is never left - they are always held. It is done in a vet clinic, or at home, not in a euthanasia room with strangers, where other animals have just passed.

The dog is either sent home with the carer for burial - or we cremate them - and their ashes stay with the carer or with us in RWL - whatever the carer prefers.

RWL dogs do not go into body bags and into landfill.

So I guess there is a big difference.

I want to say this also. Large aggressive dogs are terrifying. We understand the need for euthanasia as means to keeping violent, aggressive dogs from society. It is not to 'end their suffering' - but to allow them to pass with dignity, and safely do so.

Open Shelters face this more than we ever would. But that is not the question, or the issue.

It is why Rescues were not contacted about Bec, a puppy who was killed. To at least TRY. And numerous other fails.

So while the LDH FB page is blocking and banning those who speak out or question - their nonsense continues. Perhaps they need a mirror to have a good hard look at themselves. Because it is not us who are complaining about them and their management, but their own staff. Things must be really dire in there now. CCTV cameras to catch people trying to help animals. Heaven have mercy.We are again being attacked by the Lost-Dogs-Home-We-Are-Watching Facebook page. A page we strongly suspect is being run by disgruntled ex-staff members. It is also deeply disappointing to see posts from this page widely and consistently promoted by Rescued with Love.

The people who get hurt most here are our staff. It is soul-destroying for them to read the twisted truth and outright lies that are posted and promoted and crushing to read the misguided comments people make, believing these pages to be true. Such negativity puts our staff’s mental health and wellbeing at risk.

The latest post is about Bec, one of nine Bull Arab dogs who came to us in late April. We urge you to read on, to understand why our staff feel hurt, angry and frustrated. As you click on the link below, please also consider the following statement, made by the founder of Rescued with Love, and ask yourself - what is so different?

β€˜Any aggression issues with the dog is dealt with immediately. No excuses. Euthanasia is always decided by 2 behaviourists, our vet, the foster carer and myself’.

#thisishowitisdone #ldhwearewatchingyou

Do you know what is so very sad? The People running the LDH believe their own lies. They really think they are doing the best by the animals surrended to them. If they were open and honest then they would work with ALL rescues for the best outcome for all animals that come into their care.

These moronic murderers are only in it for the money they couldn't give a dam about any animal, Animal shelter my arse,, this place needs to get shut down altogether for the sake of the rest of the innocent little souls that may get put in that cruel place,,, sorry for this rant but im so sick of what is happening to all those little angels,, where has all the humanity gone,,πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

So tragic Cx πŸ’”πŸ™

Sometimes the culture of a place needs to be re-evaluated. Old ways are not always the most appropriate.

Please no killing. All animals deserve to have their lives

Said my bit ....

Makes me so mad and sad at the same time. I just don’t get why this place is still operating. Cruel and callous mongrels they need euthanising

This place should be condemned along with the hierarchy at the helm! Lost Dogs Hell that’s what it is.

If they have nothing to hide then why are they blocking people from asking concerning questions, there needs to be total transparency for the sake of every single animal that comes through their door, they can’t ask the questions themselves so we have to on their behalf. LDH, no question has been asked that is hard to answer just be honest and if you know things need to be improved then just do it, we have seen this shit happen to many times in the past. Mornington Peninsula Shire Pound also need to be looked at very closely

You're both suppose to have the same outcome. Redcue and help animals mlstreated and abused. Get over your politics and get back to looking after the animals.

Go talk to them and tell them what they do wrong

By the way all lives matter

Years ago my sister took her dog to be rehomed. They promised her a good home. By the time she left, her dog was dead in a wheelbarrow!! Devastating 😒

I suppose this is all for the money, money is all about it and oh how easy to have it, lazy as they are to go through procedures before ending a life in a flash. Better that they close shop! Please continue to rant and lecture on their ignorance or their easy does it ways. They thought everybody's sleeping and they will get away with it. Everybody is watching you 24/7!!

It’s a pity LDH and RWL can not find common ground to air and help fix problems the losers in this problem are of course the Dogs πŸ• and Cats who have in most cases suffered enough. Please both parties wave a white flag and sit down and talk

LDH slaughterhouse 3051

To all those who say that the ‘parties should talk’ ... I’d suggest that you need to be aware that LDH have refused to do this. This approach by them selves is typical . The problem for them is that they don’t think they NEED to be accountable & transparent and answer to anyone asking. And because RWL has thousands of supporters this is a threat. This approach eventually is doomed to failure especially when you have a State MP who asks questions at in Parliament on behalf of many thousands who want answers . The greatest pity is that whilst the issue comes to a conclusion , as it always does , that rehome able pets are dying . So rather than post on RWL page that the ‘parties Should talk’ you should be asking LDH why they refuse to !

I’m so glad you addressed this RWL . I was so upset that you were singled out in a most unprofessional post by the LDH . There are many other reputable rescue groups that stand with the same opinion of the senseless euthanasia of pets and experience as yourself RWL . Someone has to have the not so easy task of exposing this and it takes guts and determination to speak for the animals that are gone .. obliterated . Thank you Kae for that . The LDH are not interested to save a dogs life a cats life because if it’s Rescued With Love that are the interested party to rescue a life the LDH rule you out??!!!! What selfish act is that of a community animal pound organization that is funded by ratepayers monies .. Every life is worth saving .. put your ego away LDH .. and yes you have been called out LDH and yes we have the right to question your practices ! But then you also give those people that have registered an interest or have fostered for you the run around.. not nice at all . The CEO of the LDH is letting down all the good souls working at the LDH ..

God when are you people are going to grow up and listen to others you might, just might learn something.

How can they even try to justify their inhumane actions! I call b.s.

LDH you clearly have a problem. Stop defending and address the issues. Be transparent.

This should be brought to the attention of Andy Meddick! It’s about time the LDH be held accountable for their deplorable behaviour and pathetic finger pointing blaming!

Wonder why you would have ‘disgruntled ex staff’? Unfortunately LDH has ‘form’, and we general public have lost faith and respect for you.

Those dogs do not look aggressive.

Finally a politician with heart, compassion and an appreciation that all animal lives matter. πŸ’— Too many innocent victims suffer and their lives are not valued, their fears, ability to feel pain and anguish is acknowledged.

Someone has their panties in a bunch today. Possibly her G-string is on backwards - who would know? It all started when I washed everyone's jacket and tried to put a new one on Vlad, the Cactus.

SNAP - I nearly dislocated my shoulder moving my fingers away so quickly. There, there, I said, lets try that again, SNAP! Snarl and standing very still with a low snarl and lifted lip the jacket resting on her back. Eventually it came off and I thought, I will try that again a little later. Nup - same result. Vladimir is clearly operating on nuclear firepower today.

I got her meds ready and picked her up as I do every morning and she nailed me. Smugs 1, Mum bloodied but determined. I put her on the bench on her towel and gave her her meds, eye drops, talking sweet nothings. I lifted her off the bench and SNAP! Nailed the hand that feeds her - Vlad 2 Mum 0 - not as much blood, only a flesh wound.

The Cactus bit Wix on the nose when he came to close - he cried - she snarled. She tottered off to a bed where everyone had to walk by. It was like an assassin picking off his victims until I tipped her out of the bed gently and told her to move along. She flew at me, SNAP - missed me, got a mouthful of bedding, and finally got her over in the corner where the others wouldn't have to walk past and everyone settled into a bed. Snarling near my chair making the floor rumble until the Grumpy Git fell asleep for a few hours.

Medication time came this afternoon - and SNAP swung left and right and missed - I got her around her middle and placed her on her towel on the bench. Bit me as I put her down and talked nicely to her (next time I might have to sing or something) Squirted her oral meds in, did her eye meds and took her outside in my arms to enjoy the sunshine while the others were medicated by husband who was eyeballing the cactus - attempting to social distance for more reasons than just CV-19.

Outside we checked the succulents, the lemons, and the limes on our new tree. We looked at the primulas and felt the washing on the line to see if it was dry. We checked over the parsley - and it's growing a treat in the new sunny spot. I thought surely - no one is around to upset her - I can pop her down here.

Well guess who has a big fat brain that never forgets anything? I popped her down on the path and SNAP - bit my thumb. No blood, just a puncture wound. Off she went into the convulvia and liriope pretty darn happy with herself.

For a little dog who can go for weeks without doing anything wrong - the wind is certainly blowing the wrong way today. Maybe it's her Covid hair do. Maybe she didn't get to watch The Bold and the Beautiful. Who knows...

Some days you just have to be a cactus.

NB: no Mummies were fatally injuried in the making of this post. no doggies were injured in the making of this post. No small children are ever in contact with Vlad.

It's only 3.30 and we haven't even had dinner or our last two medications for the day yet. I'd better get the garden gloves out....

Rescued With Love

The LDH have killed this puppy.
Her name was Bec.

She was 7 kgs.

Not one of the 90 so called Rescue Partners were contacted.

She died because she was fearful in the shelter.

And the LDH Management response? Spending money putting up CCTV to catch people who are trying to save these lives. Thats what they do to their staff.

Read the article - and take action.

#stopthekilling #supportthestaffhelpinganimalsThis puppy’s name was Bec. We apologise for the quality of the photo, but Lost Dogs Home has spent a lot of money installing extra CCTV recently to ensure management can spy on staff and visitors in all areas of the facility. So this grainy pic is all we have to tell the story of this puppy who was killed by the Lost Dogs Home last week.

Like Mulan the Doberman pup, Bec came into the Home from a property with 8 other dogs. And like 5 of Mulan’s siblings, the Lost Dogs Home also decided to kill this puppy, after less than a month in their β€˜care’. Why? Alleged β€˜fear aggression’. In other words, a frightened 7kg puppy needing to get out of the terrifying pound environment to receive the rehabilitation she deserved.

The Lost Dogs Home recently boasted on their Facebook page how they work with β€˜over 90 responsible rescue partners’ because β€˜from time to time we need to rehome animals with very specialised requirements or those we know will not do well in a shelter environment’.

Well, Liz Walker and Grant Robb, WHY did you not grant Bec a chance with ANY of your 90-odd rescue partners, or place her in the home of one of your own NUMEROUS foster carers?

Killing puppies is indefensible. Shame, Lost Dogs Home, Shame.

ACT NOW TO SAVE BEC'S SIBLINGS

Several of Bec’s siblings remain in the Lost Dogs Home’s β€˜care’ and are therefore also at risk of losing their lives under CEO Grant Robb and Head of Operations Liz Walker’s β€˜leadership’. Please email them and state they must release these pups to rescue, foster care or adoption:
liz.walker@dogshome.com; grant.robb@dogshome.com

Disgusting

SUE THE SHELTER

This is so very shameful poor baby

Shame on you Why are u the lost dogs home if u do disgusting behavior like this you should not be in existence

Animal Welfare PLEASE CLOSE THIS HORROR PLACE DOWN..

So very wrong. Sharing.

Please Please please don't kill anymore of those dogs for Gods sake ,I live in England or so help me I would cherish them ,don't understand this world at l

Those that make this decision should be held accountable. Let’s wait and see what glossy notice they put up this time after you have bought this to their attention! Thank you

WTF .🀬🀬🀬🀬🀬

Bastards

horrifying.... how the hell do these people sleep at night...

Unforgivable!!!! Stop killing innocent animals you bastards!!!!! 😑😑😑

I'll be sharing the post again. I stopped my donations months ago. I'll email management telling them why.

Such a disgrace to do this to a life that could be saved by rescue groups 😨

How this is still happening when other self funded groups do a much better job than the so called professionals πŸΎπŸ’”πŸ˜‘

Management need sacking in that place, or euthanizing.....

Stop killing these beautiful dogs! What is wrong with them!!!!

This is so sad 😭 poor baby 7 ks killer aggressive dog I don’t think so

Absolutely disgusting the hierarchy need to be sacked and replaced with people who have animals rights at heart.

It’s all been said before by every single one of us... We are all outraged, and saddened by this ‘hell hole!’ Keep contacting City of Melbourne... and INUNDATING them with our emails every day! Twice a day! Make phone calls do whatever we are able to.... LDH you are inhumane!! Sleep tight at night! 😑

Shame on you LDH you are meant to be there for the animals NOT to be judge jury and EXECUTIONER.Start doing your job and protecting them

I really hate the lost dogs home!!

These people are a disgusting and should never be allowed to work with animals again!! Instead of showing these poor innocent animals love and kindness they take the easy option and kill them! Shame on you when there are so many rescues out there willing to take them and find them loving homes!!!😑😑

Wouldn’t it b something if we all did wat people are doing now protesting about these innocent babies that are killed daily by humans really it’s heartbreaking thing

Why doesn't someone close this stupid worthless place, or fire these morons and hire qualified people who care, in their place??😑😑😑

As the injustice continues in animal welfare, another story emerges of a pet being killed.

Please sign the petition in the link.

I cannot think for one minute that this is okay. It's not.

Such a shame non VIC residents can’t sign petition

How dare they do that to the poor kitten they need to be held accountable for the murder 😑

They are not interested in animal welfare. It's just a business. Poor little Simon RIP little one.

I was just about to have my lunch.... Not hungry anymore... Just very angry and disgusted with this continuing despicable killing of these poor little souls... 😀

Gaaaaah! Unacceptable. I’m so livid I cannot speak without profanity

I've never understood this. Here in the States, you can surrender your animal in lieu of ticket. It's a death sentence. In cases where the owner says I'll take the ticket, you still can't get your pet back until you pay and boarding fees are added to it. You still can't get your pet back and he dies and to rub salt in the wound a warrant is put for your arrest because you didn't pay the ticket. So why not hand over the pet write the ticket and if the person doesn't pay up you're still going to issue the warrant.

Omgoodness outraged must stop with πŸ™

I’ve been trying to cancel my ongoing monthly donation to RSPCA but they are not answering their phone. They also haven’t even acknowledged my email to them and, I got through on the phone a week ago only to be passed around until I was transferred to an unmanned phone, had to leave a message...and guess what...no call back. Professional hey 🀬

why, why is this happening!!!! This is unnecessary and cruel to the owners. So sad and it is happening too often

What vet puts down healthy kittens!!! There are many pte shops that run rehomong programs as do many private vets I am so sick of reading these awful stories with no way to change this I have signed multiple petitions Take your animals yo no kill shelters

Jennifer Windsor Alison Windsor

PLEASE stop the killing!!!!!!!

I am heartbroken to read this and heartbroken for the owner.

Disgraceful 😑

oNLY vICTORIAN RESIDENTS CAN SIGN...

I pray God gives all his animals that are murdered the justice they deserve πŸΎπŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»βœοΈ they will get what they deserveπŸΎπŸ™πŸ» Gods word says don’t murder and those place will be accountable to our creatorβœοΈπŸ’”πŸΎπŸ™πŸ»

I am assuming due to privacy and legal requirements...we cant know which shelters are doing this so we know who to support and whom not to?

I am a bit confused. Animal taken to local pound. Then to animal shelter. What exactly is an animal shelter? Extension of pound, say RSPCA or one of the rescue groups? I am confused. Partition signed.

What are the supposed to do with all these animals Seriously blame humans for this they buy animals and don't get them desexed If all you people want to cry about do it other wise you take them home and care for them

Signed

Hit them where it hurts

Go to your bank and stop the payment

Partition signed.

πŸ˜ͺJust horrid, signed!

Gorgeous Gertie, she's no trouble at all.
She's looking for someone lovely to open their heart and home to her.
.
Gerts is about 12 years young, she loves a short burst of fun on the oval but is a little slow and tottery the rest of the time. She loves a chat - she'll let you know when it's her dinner time 🀣 and she would love you to be around and dote on her.

Gertie has a puggie cough, that will stay with her for life, but, it's being managed nicely now with meds.

Two of our bubbas have just found themselves new homes!!!πŸ₯³πŸΎ
Spencer, who was one of the little ones that had a road trip to us down from Queensland with "da boys" Peter and Wayne. He's spent quite some time in care, getting his skin right and is off to a family who are used to dealing with skin and eye issues. He loves his new family, all the belly rubs, and his 1/2 acre back yard to sniff around in!

And Ginger, the dear little girl who came to us so worried from the pound. We are so pleased to see she has come such a long way. Within a days, she is sleeping, as confident as can be, on her back, in her new home. She has two cat buddies that she'll even share her meals with!

Welcome Shirley.

Little Shirley came to us after a vet called to ask if we had a place for a little dog, who's owners were wanting to bring in for euthanasia. We don't know the full story, and so ask for no judgement there. But we are so grateful that, the vets, who believed that, little Shirley has good quality of life, were there for Shirley and quick to suggest other options to the owners, getting straight on to us to see if we could help.

Shirley was bundled off to our own vets (as we do with all our new arrivals), given a full medical intake assessment, bloods taken, urine sample taken in case of a UTI, vaccinated, flea and worm treated. She has a mild heart murmur, but no meds needed for that at this stage. She was started on a cytopoint injection to sooth her sore allergy skin, and some eye ointment for her dry eyes. Then off home to settle in with foster mum Bridie and her little pack, where she has already chosen her own lounge chair!

She is the sweetest little dumpling and, is one lucky girl to have had the kindest of vets and vet staff looking out for her!!!!

Our beautiful Jenny, is now ready for adoption.

Jenny is inquisitive, affectionate and... a big foodie. She's healthy and fit for a 14 year old, and is the first to be at the door when the 'W' word is mentioned. When she's not going for little exploratory walks or eating, she's snuggling on the couch with you, sleeping under the desk of your home office or retributing you with kisses (licks) when you're petting her. She's a very social dog, so she would love a doggy companion - however perhaps puppy energy would be a bit too much for her. She's attached to her humans and her pack, so sleeping in a place where she can check you're around would be good. If she's allowed on the bed, even better. The ideal house for Jenny 'The Explorer' will have a backyard so she can go for her little wanders. She sleeps well, but sometimes might need to get up for a little 3am wee. She's a very intelligent dog and learn things very quickly. Most of all, she needs a house that will give her all the love that she didn't have in her past life. Cuddles, loyalty, protection, comfort, a warm bed, good food and walkies. She will give you back something of much greater worth - unconditional love.

SavourLife are taking nominations for rescues to share in a $50,000 donation.
We'd be very grateful for nominations πŸ™‚
You just need to comment with our name on their post to nominate us xx
www.facebook.com/SavourLifeDog/photos/a.652772681424376/3265082630193355/?type=3&theater🧑 Nominations now closed! We'll be announcing the 30 shortlisted rescue groups on Thursday! 🧑

We believe that every dog in Australia should have a warm bed to call their own 🧑 While adoptions have increased recently, the impact of COVID-19 on rescue groups’ ability to fundraise has been devastating. So, to help the rescue groups who are working incredibly hard to re-home as many dogs as possible during these tough times, we’re running another $50,000 donation project! πŸ‘

We also believe in midnight snacks, so make sure you check out our range of natural food and treats to keep those munchies at bay! 😁 Thanks to your support of our awesome Aussie-made products we’ve now donated over $1.6 million to rescue groups, and supported the re-homing of over 14,000 dogs nationwide.

Whether your dog takes up the whole bed, or fits on the pillow, and everything in between, we have the perfect food to suit! βœ… Our small-breed and large-breed food (in both puppy and adult) is available now in both our grain-free and ancient grains ranges! Check them out in-store and on-line across the country in Petbarn, City Farmers, Best Friends, Peto, Animal Tuckerbox, Pets Domain, PetCircle and My Pet Warehouse. You can find your local stores at www.savour-life.com.au/#FindUs 🌏

We’ve got $50,000 to split between some deserving rescue groups who have dogs on Adopt-A-Dog, and we’d like your help with nominations! So here’s what to do:

1. Click on the link to see all the rescue groups on Adopt-A-Dog www.savour-life.com.au/adopt-a-dog/rescue-groups/

2. Then come back here and write in the comments which group you think should be in donation project. (Can't find your favourite rescue on Adopt-A-Dog? Let us know who they are in the comments below!)

3. Then we’ll narrow it down to 30 groups for the project voting later in June! 🐹🐹

From Polly: one of our foundation dogs.

You sort of know, when a dog who was so traumatised since arriving (even after 4 years) allows you to pick them up with only a β€œpretend” I’m going to bite your hand clean off! has kind of adjusted to living without fear. Can you imagine what that must feel like for a tiny defenceless dog such as Polly.

Granted Polly is now completely blind, yet she trusts us enough (with enough verbal warning) to handle her without her tongue turning blue.

She pretty much sleeps most of the time and has a rigid routine she sticks to every day.

Polly is able to find her day bed! always after breakfast she’ll go out to toilet, she’ll be carried back indoors, have a drink and wander off to the study where her little bed sits between the desk and my dads old teak bureau.

There she’ll stay until around 2pm when she’ll bark a couple of times, her servant (me)!! will carry her outside again to toilet, another big drink of water and this time it’s up onto the couch in another little bed.

4pm she’ll either come out with me in the stroller, or she’ll go in the car with Sean when he goes to the dog park.

Back home it’s a very slow wander in the garden, another big drink and indoors for dinner.

Evening times she’ll head off to where we watch TV: up onto the couch and she’ll nap until we’ve eaten and ready to give her a treat!

If for any reason Polly’s routine is disturbed she becomes agitated and confused. When everyone is doing the same repetitive tasks, she’s fine.

Polly has so many health issues, we balance everything as best we can with medication and diet.

For now she is doing okay.

Just being the best she can ❀️

Oh so gorgeous I love you XX πŸ’‹

A "HALO" would help her get around without bumping into things...she is precious.....

Darling little poppit♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

This precious little baby had such a hard life and now she's taken care of and loved so much. Thank you for being so good to her and keeping her spoiled. She trusts you and needs you. Thanks for all you're doing <3

God bless you πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’•

Precious lady

You are fabulous carers

How fantastically wonderfully Polly has found love and security at last

Polly is adorable like Bill my 18.5 ex RWL little man, blind and deaf he responds to routine perfectly, gentle and loving he is my little angel child, love wins every time as you know Sharon β€πŸ•β€

Please give lite Miss Polly bunches of hugs, kisses & love for me. I thank you and all others for what y’all do for animals. God bless all of y’all.

Dear little soul

Thank you...

Beautiful little girl 😍❀️

Rescued With Love

A beautiful update from Tina, Harriet and Poppy's mum:

"These are our babies from RWL and we are celebrating their gotcha day on Monday. Harriet will be 18, and her daughter Poppy (was Lulu) will be 16. We had 3 other babies from RWL who have died and gone to Heaven. Our dogs have saved us in ways we couldn't imagine, they make us better humans - more loving and more grounded in the beauty of life. We don't think about tomorrow, but enjoy them in each day and moment. Harriet loves her pram ride, but both love walking on soft green grass and sniffing corners of every building.

Thank you RWL for existing and trusting us. We are a family because of you ❀️"

Thank you Tina, we exist, because of beautiful people like you xx

It's the beautiful Krissi's first day at the beach. She was a little unsure at first. When she decided that she had walked far enough she just plonked herself down and enjoyed being a beach babe.

The water was so calm today and the beach looked so inviting.

I just love seeing these babies experiencing the joys of life, having special new experiences Life as it should be xx

Totally devoted pug lovers? Where are you?

Our Gertie girl is ready to find you.

Gertie is an extra, extra special love pug, who is looking for the kindest of people, that don't mind she’s got a little bit going on and a nasty cough that's a lot better now but will be with her for life. She is beautiful, has quality of life and so deserving of a special place to spend her days.

If you’re thinking the way we do, and love nothing more than helping those that need a little extra help, then read on.

Gertie came to us with a terrible, terrible, cough, which now after working through, is a lot better. But she will always have a cough, mostly when she first gets up, or with over exertion. She will need medication for that for life.

In her previous life, she was very well loved (AKA overfed!!!) which for a little girl with a bad cough made her life much harder, she will need someone who will resist the temptation to give in to those little pleading human eyes that say β€œoh woe is me, I need to be fed, again… again… again” and will take such very special care of a darling girl who has finally got back her quality of life.

She can’t walk far, and is tottery, but she just loves an off-lead park to have a little trot and stop and trot and stop.

She is a total house dog and wants someone to be with her, dote on her, and be by her side. She’s lovely with other dogs but would be happy as your very own child as long as you’re around a lot. She’s not overly cuddly, she’s happy to sit on her bed, but she loves to be near you - more than anything.

Gertie is a 12 year old Pug
