When the stars align. The very adorable Dolly joined us recently from RSPCA QLD, she'd had an eye removed but everything else about her was good (unusual for us haha). A special man who had adopted from us before, devastatingly, lost his little girl, Milly. His other dog and he, were pining, and so, Miss Dolly has gone to join their family. She is not there to replace the beautiful Milly, but she will help her new dad and fur brother's hearts mend. Here she was supervising dad with his chainsaw, at a safe distance with her new brother 🤣 ...
I'm Mac. I like catching sun rays whenever they're about.
I've had a couple meet and greets but we think people are having second thoughts when I'm so shy when they first meet me. Maybe they expect me to show my love and affection straight away. But I'm shy and get worried at first in a new place. If you have me the chance to get to know you properly, once you've earned my trust you would be the most important thing in my life.
I'd love to be your little shadow and intently watch you pulling out weeks, sweeping the path - in fact I'm happy to watch anything you do with great interest! I'm STILL searching for my people! I have specific needs but they aren't difficult if your circumstances are right.
"We've had lots of people with other dogs ask why he can't be trailed with them and as much as we want Mac in his own home sooner rather than later, another dog is not a good idea. There's a few reasons but two of the big ones are, because of his conditions he is not allowed to play rough. At the moment, when his foster fur family are around he wants to play with them so much, it's unfair on him that he is forever being told no, or when the other dog isn't a player and gets sick of him trying to play, it's unfair on them, no matter how patient they are.
We have also had some people wondering what his medical needs are, having hydrocephalus. Since his surgery to place a shunt to drain fluid from his brain to his tummy, Mac's life is almost normal, he does still have a tablet each day and, if there are no complications he may live a normal happy life. If there are complications we can assist if it's needed (this can be discussed further).
So we are still looking for a gorgeous person who is patient enough to give him time to love them, with the following set up: - Home a fair bit - A protected outdoor area when they aren't home and a fenced yard - No other pets - An adult family - Able to give him walks and play time Oooh and biccies when he's good boy. He loves biccies!
If you think you could love me, and give me the time to love you, please get in contact, email email@example.com or fill in an adoption application at www.rescuedwithlove.org/adoption-form/...
Wish we could have u but already have a cavoodle 💙💙💙
He is gorgeous!
I would have him only we have a beautiful pet already 😘
Good luck Mack😍
Hello Maccy Boy xx
Beautiful boy ❤️❤️❤️
Poor love 🙁
Mate you WILL find your home and your family, they will be the one that doesn't need the big bond straight out of the gate...Love you buddy, hang in there.
Oh Mac how I would love you but having a dog and cat I can’t but I fell in love with u as soon as I saw you and have followed your story closely my love and thoughts are with you always stay well my gorgeous boy xxx and thank you to Mack’s carers
How much is he. Gorgeous dog
Good luck beautiful boy, he deserves the best, and unfortunately I already have a fur baby that I adore.🐾🐾🐾🐾
I already love you Macca...from the start, I have a little girl who may or may not get you in trouble....Good luck Beautiful Boy.😘❤️😘
Breaks my heart, I so wish I met the criteria 😣
Oh Maccy I hope that you find the right home soon I do wish I could have you but our rescue dog Tia would maybe play a bit rough . Fingers crossed 🐾💚🐾
💙 if only I could help you Mac, someone out there must be perfect for you💙
I’d have you if I didn’t already have 2 dogs - you are a very special fellow
Oh Mac I love you so much but I'm going travelling, I will try and find someone...you are too special...we all love you..someone HAS TO HAVE YOU DARLING BOY 😘😘❤❤
You sweet little fella. The right little family will come along just you wait 😉
After dinner bickies are so good👌
This tears my heart that the right family hasn't found him yet. Maccy is an amazing boy & hydrocephalus hasn't stopped me from living a wonderful life and I am sure Mac will be the same. Love you Mackintosh your family is just around the corner Cx
Who remembers Pixie, from about 4 years ago. What a difference love makes.
From Pixie's mum "We just adore her. She’s getting her winter coat and looks like a little teddy bear. Her little round penny eyes watch everything and tell you exactly what she’s thinking 😍 . Her favourite hobby at the moment is rounding up the cats for a game. Pixie looks for any bit of sunshine to sit in so her and the little cat Zara always find each other. Their little community and politics is very funny to watch”
I do come every year, but this year l am away. Going to give my girlfriend money to donate if she can make it this year. If not l will still donate. 🐶🐶🐶
So many beautiful blankies❤️
I'll be there 👍❤️❤️❤️❤️
Me !!! 😄🖐
Hi Sherlock the Schnauzer, I wondered how you were doin'? I see that you are still in charge of the ladieees! 😍😍
Jane Kelly and myself will be there 👍
Oh definitely and you're still a handsome boi 💗
Sorry Sherlock, I don’t come because I live too far away in Yarram and now I am even further away in England. Have a good day. Xx
Definitely will be there😊
Yep. I’m coming 🐾🐾🥰🥰
Great to see Sherlock he's just adorable and so special
Would love to but live in Port Stephens NSW but if there is any items available after the day can you please let me know as I would love to buy 3 blankets and a jacket for my cav please .
What a little charmer you are, Sherlock. Looking forward to catching up with you next Sat. 💋💙
Beautiful Sherlock! I'll be dropping in 😁❤
Boy I wish I could, have an awesome day guys. Sherlock is lookin goooood. 🐾💖
Sorry Mr Holmes can't come that far no transport, but hope you have a wonderful day.
Sherlock, my darling little man (where oh where is your sailor suit?) ... I will be there in spirit and hoping you rake it in like the leaves in Fall ... nice, big, old Canadian Maple leaves ... you're a lovely boy. Have a wonderful, profitable day! xoxoxoxoxo
Meg came home yesterday, pain relief on board, she is bright, eating, drinking and doing really well considering.
We thank you again, for making this possible for her, once healed, she'll feel a million bucks. She may have a cute little ear flop from now on, but that's a small price to pay for ongoing comfort and relief! ...
Snowie is our little old man. He’s staying with us at the moment, since his foster mum going back to work a few days has had him out of sorts. This little fellow has, how shall we put it, not got too many marbles left in his marble bag, but he’s happy. He wanders a bit, sleeps a bit, wanders some more, sometimes just stands around for a while, he can get a little lost, but he gets so excited at times when my son comes out of his room, it’s like it’s a long lost friend he hasn’t seen for such a long time (he may have seen him five minutes before), this at least is one positive part of his canine cognitive disfunction, he is still toileting outside, still happy to see us, still comes over for and nudges in for pats, and still runs with the pack barking and wagging his tail when someone comes to the door. The biggest difficulties with his condition at the moment is his lack of interest in food and having trouble eating. He had dropped a lot of weight, so we now have a special weight gain diet, we hand feed him if we need to, and on days where he just doesn’t eat we syringe food and water into the side of his mouth and he happy eats it then. It’s like it kicks his brain into action and sometimes if we start him off like that off he goes and finishes some food by himself. His weight had stabalised, he had possibly even gained a tiny bit over the first week, but he has gone backward a bit again in his eating the last few days. A trip to the vet just to redo bloods and a check over shows he’s actually looking pretty healthy – nothing obvious happening, just a little old man with CCD (doggy demetia) and low vision. He really feels the cold at times, even when we’re comfortable he needs extra layers. He just loves to be swaddled cosy in his blanket, like a little baby, he just melts into your arms and blissfully falls asleep. And after the sadness today, we're more than happy to spend our time giving him extra cuddles. Isn’t he just a ganoush xx ...
Some positive news, after our big scare with Essie yesterday we're pleased to report, today, she had her meds, bitten dad's shoe twice and bit mums finger as she put her drops in #fightingfit #backtonormal #movealongnothingtoseehere ...
We’re heartbroken and so sorry to have to let you know, this morning we lost our beautiful Emily. Her CT scan revealed that the cancer had in fact spread and was in her vertebrae, painful and untreatable. We were not really expecting this news, although it was in the back of our minds. There was a high chance the cancer may have spread to other organs but bone metastases from mammary tumours is quite rare in dogs. Both our vets and the specialists were expecting to find a ruptured disc. That was not the case.
This morning Emily passed in the arms of her mum Sarah, who loved her dearly. While we know Emily may not have had a long life with her cancer prognosis, her time came a lot sooner than expected, and it is a particularly difficult time for her. Our carers give so much of themselves in cases like these so that the little ones they care for feel a lifetime of love in the short time they are with us.
Thank you Sarah and Stu (Olly and Marley), for taking such beautiful care of our gentle little soul. Thank you for being there with her Sarah, so that she was not alone, she was held, she was loved, she was a part of a family. We hope you feel our collective arms around you at this sad time.
Vale Emily, we were blessed to have had you in our lives xx ...
Such sad news, especially for Sarah & Stu. Thinking of you xxx
So sorry for your loss.
So sorry 😭🙏🙏🙏🙏
My heart goes out to you all especially Sarah and Stu. Thank you for caring for these beautiful souls even though it must be so heartbreaking 💐
RIP sweet Emily. Run free on the rainbow bridge 🐶xx
So sorry for your loss, sweet furbaby
So sorry for your loss
After reading sad posts for the last week or so, this one finally got me. So glad that Sarah was there with Emily. Thank you to Sarah, Stu and fur kids for the love given. Sometimes life is unfair. Vale beautiful Emily. 🐾💕🐾💕🐾
So sad Rip beautiful little Emily xxx
I'm so sorry for you all. You are having a rough time with your precious little ones at the moment. 💞💕💞
Devastating and unexpected news , so sorry for your loss ..😥💖
Such sad news love to you all for giving her love and care 💔💝💝💝
Darling Bea (Beatrice) was given her wings last night. She was in congestive heart failure and had declined rapidly. She was seriously unwell. Beatrice was the most beautiful little girl. We know how much she was adored and cared for by mum (RWL foster carer) Trish and how much she will be missed. Our thoughts are with Trish. Another bright star in the sky tonight. Vale Bea. ...
Please stop donating! Thank you, once again from the bottom of our hearts. We truly, humbly thank you and do feel so lucky to always have the support of our RWL family when we need it. We have raised enough to cover the bulk of Emily and Megs procedures today. We are still waiting for more info on the girls - Meg is still in Surgery and Emily's CT scan was scheduled for tonight. We will update you tonight if any news comes through early enough. It has been a stressful and worrying day for quite a few of us today, we don't know what kind of news we'll have with Emily and waiting for Meg to be out of surgery has us a little nervous - it's never risk free. We thank you for making sure we're in a position to do what we feel is best for the girls. I can tell you none of the decision we make are ever made lightly. We talk with each other, the vets, the specialists, than back to speaking with each other, back to the vets, always attempting to do what is ultimately the best for our patient - and sometimes - it is so hard to know, especially with a case like Emily - even the vets struggle to advise which way to go. We are now waiting to find out, if we can, what's causing her issues, if it's spinal, if the cancer has spread. She will go home tomorrow, with pain meds on board. We know we'll have some tough decisions to grapple with, regardless of the CT results. Meg we hope, will go home tomorrow (it could be Sunday) with a a little healing to do and then hopefully, no looking back. ...
Hoping Meg and Emily are both going to be okay. Thank you to all the wonderful people who donated.
Hope its good news.....love you beautiful Emily and Meg XXX
“Love and prayers 💖🙏💖🙏“ Always 🌷🌷🥰🥰
So well deserved. Glad to help out 💜
Lots of love to you fur babies and fur parents all. 💞
May the lord continue to guide u and heal u in jesus name amen.

Good luck to both Meg and Emily
Sending prayers 🙏🙏🙏
Thinking of you all
Get Well Soon Sweetie
You deserve the support. Sorry, I missed this one I was away camping..🙏💖🐾🙂
Use the excess for the next baby that needs saving. Unfortunately there’s always another one. Awesome 👏🏽 that people are so generous
Dear little Meg, hoping for a good outcome for you baby girl ❤️
I was sorry to hear about Meg in your later post.
My birthday fundraiser will probably arrive at end of May. I don't want it back. I'm sure you will find a good use for it.
You have such hard decisions to make, but you do the best for these little ones, no one can ask more than that. I hope Emily's news is not too terrible and that Meg will be fine after her surgery. Big hugs to you all. 💙🥰💞
While we're waiting on updates on Meg and Emily, little Essie (one of our foundation dogs) was at the vets today for a dental and hernia repair... but, things took a dramatic turn. Essie is elderly (can be prickly as a pinapple - don't ever do anything she doesn't want) but health wise she is fragile. We were very much reminded of that today when after her premeds, she had a seizure, her body temperature lowered and gave everyone the biggest scare! Vets and vet nurses came running, treating her, oxygen, warming her and keeping her stable, straight on the phone to mum Kae who rushed down to be with her girl. Such a scary time. We're so relieved Essie is stable, she'll come home tonight and is booked in with her heart specialist for follow up and to see if any meds need adjusting - but no surgery for her, the risk is just too high after this reaction. We hope Kae is over the shock and feeling a little better tonight and of course Essie, we're so relieved and thankful you pulled through xx ...
Both Emily and Meg have 10am appointments. Emily at Advance Vet Care for her CT scan and Meg for her ear surgery with Chris Franlin.
While we are very hopeful that Megs surgery will bring her huge relief and have her ready to finally go off to a home of her own, we are very worried about little Emily. Please send your positive thoughts for both, with a little extra for Emily xx
We'll let you know as soon as we have any more to tell about the girls. ...
Praying for both our babies, hope you get good results. Em thinking of you always baby girl.
Prayers for all of you!🐾💙🙏💗
Emily, I will br thinking of you ... and Meg, too .. 💖💖💖💖
I hope Meg receives some relief with her surgery. I too am worried about Emily, I have everything crossed for a positive result on the scan. Big hugs to you both.💙💞🥰😘
In my heart and soul hugs and best wishes to you all

Edited - Thank you please stop donating. We have enough xx
As they say when it rains it pours. We are going to have to ask for a little help again.
We’re very worried about Emily. She has suddenly lost some mobility in her back legs, she’s stumbling and falling and has a pain response in her neck. The symptoms and her reflexes are indicative of spinal compression but don’t quite add up, the vets think it’s quite a rare place or places, for cancer to have mastacised to, so she is going in for a CT scan at Advance Vet Care tomorrow to give us a better idea of what might be happening. We hope beyond hope her cancer hasn’t spread, and so quickly, but if it has at least we’ll know what we’re dealing with, but we also hope it’s not a serious spinal injury. This darling little angel just deserves the world and we are so upset at these recent developments. We need to know if we are now treating palliatively and keeping her as comfortable as we can, or if it’s something else, and there is something we can do. Tomorrow we also have Meg in for her ear surgery. Her specialist Chris Franklin will be performing an ear ablation, as her ear is deseased and narrowed meaning her ears are constantly full, fluidy, mucky, with recurring infection, pain and discomfort. It’s like the whole ear canal will be removed but it will mean she has will never have the pain and discomfort again. We have been quoted between $1700 and $2500 for Emily’s scan, and up to $2000 for Megs ear surgery. As we don’t know exactly how much things are going to cost yet for Emily , we are going to ask if you feel you could help us out with raising $3,700, it will at least help up with the bulk of the cost. We don’t want to ask for more than we need, that’s important to us, so if the costs end up being much more than this, we’ll update things when we know. We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping us to help them xx
Done! Sending lots of love to Meg, Emily and the Rescued With Love team! 😘 xoxo
Donated with love ❤️
Just donated good luck Emily <3
You havent used any flea treatments lately? My boy lost his legs for a few days haven't used the spot ons since.

Donated with love Cx 💙🐾🐾
Donated with love ❤️
Donated with love..from our furbabies Ding and Baby 💗xx
Done and congratulations on the great work you do with these beautiful dogs xxx
This is what Meg does when you say "show mummy your smile" hehe. She is such a character.
She has been scratching at her ears a little, even though she's on antibiotics, so we really hope her surgery will be able to go ahead on Friday. Will just have to wait and see what the vets say. Fingers crossed. We just really want to get her healed and off to her home, she is so ready!!!
We may need to start thinking about another fundraiser or two coming up, with ear surgery for Meg, and our new little girl Nicci and her cowgirl gait, looking like she'll need patella surgery too!!!!! You know we hate to ask, but if it's what they need, it's what we need to do... for them xx ...
Our darling boy MacIntosh is STILL….. looking for a home. We’re wondering if people think his condition or problems are worse than they are. MacIntosh these days, really is a pretty much a normal dog, who just needs gentle understanding handling until he feels safe. His shunt for his hydrocephalus is working well and we now hope will continue to do so for many, many years to come, but should MacIntosh have a medical emergency due to his hydrocephalus, we would be prepared to assist if help is needed.
He plays - lots, he sleeps, he loves affection, loves his daily walks.
The hardest thing is finding the home that suits him, we have been searching and searching and although he does have specific need, they’re not difficult needs.
It would be amazing if we could find the person Mac has been waiting so long for. Mac is such a deserving boy who has been through such a lot in his short life and has waited so long for a home of his own.
-Do you currently have a pet free home? (Purely because -Mac can’t play with others because of his shunt). -Are you home a fair bit? -Are you an adult home? --Are you patient and able to give a chance to feel safe and at home? Do you have a doggy door, a protected outdoor area and fenced yard? -Do you love company? -Are you looking for a best friend?
If you’ve answered yes to the above questions we really want to hear from you!!!! You may just be the very special person Mac needs in his life, so get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in an adoption application form www.rescuedwithlove.org/adopt/
MacIntosh is an 18 month old Border Collie x Poodle, he’s a medium sized dog (about the size of a smaller border collie).
Come on RWL family, lets get this boy a home - let the world know about Maccy ...
There must be someone who would love this gorgeous boy, good luck sweetie, from our two lovely rescue girls Lilly & Rosie.❤️❤️❤️
I am so sorry Mac. You don’t deserve to wait like this. I think the problem is finding a home without any other pets. I hope someone finds you soon, to have the blessing of spending a life with you.
If only. So sorry I can't take you mac but I have another dog that 3just want to play. Love you maccy
Aww little man , still looking for that perfect home , your condition doesn't worry me , special needs pets seem to find me but I just don't qualify and I think a few ppl who would snap you up in a heart beat are in the same boat . Keep waiting beautiful boy , love and hugs 💙💙💙
Keeping everything crossed that a perfect home becomes available for MacIntosh sooner rather than later 🐶❤️
I would take him in a heartbeat if I didn’t have my own little special needs girl (who is very similar to Mac) and a very boisterous male dog
Those eyes 💖
I have been watching this special boy since he arrived at RWL and I would love nothing better than to give him a home but I have a little cavie 😥
Emma-Kate Hogan this boy is amazing!
beautiful boy.😍💓🥀😍 (if i didn't have a 'non fixable lung condition) I would snap him up in a heart beat...
You guys have mended his 'breaks' have nursed him through the tough times. He is thriving and so adorable. I sincerely would be applying to have him ... I just can't look after him how he deserves as in a bit of a play and walks. He has been mended thanks to all of your treatment & the Vets obviously. Someone will be around the corner ... just perfect , that's why it has taken so long. 🥀🥀🥀
Sweetheart, I hope your forever home is just around the bend. You are just so beautiful and loving and I love you. Sending big hugs to you. 💙💞😘🥰
If we were in Victoria, I would have applied to have this beautiful boy!!!
Wish I could help you gorgeous boy , ❤️could you get used to the company of a bossy cat ? ! Xxx
How old is he.?
Beautiful boy wish we could have him 😞
Love this boy. Wish l could take you. Xx
Kate Purcell-Comery for Dad?
Beautiful boy 🐕🐕
Praying he finds a loving home. I don't meet many of his requirements, his health issue wouldn't be a problem.
I'd take him if i didn't have a territorial dog. 😢
Mac, You deserve a good home.
I’d love to help but I don’t meet some of the criteria 😔
Our little doll cakes Emily, she's still doing well, she has no symptoms of her cancer at this stage, so taking it day by day. She loves spending time with her fur siblings and just hanging out with mum and dad Sarah and Stu 💖💖 bless her, she is such a beautiful gentle soul.... who will not look at that annoying camera! 📸 ...
Every year, 97 year old Nanna Bette gets her knitting needles out in preparation for our Annual Stall. (I hope Nanna Bette doesn't mind me telling everyone her age!!!) Nanna Bette is just one of the beautiful ladies that make, bake and create for us, so that we can bring you the best selection of winter warmers, jumpers, pajamas and blankets for you dogs, cakes and baked comfort food for us humans and lots of other quality goods.
This year has been a big year financially, with so many operations and special needs and our Annual stall is our biggest fundraiser for the year, so we really hope to see you there.
Please note that we are not taking online sales for our Market goods at this stage but may be offering them after the market :)

Amazing Bette 🥰
What beautiful jackets!
Beautiful colorful work aunty Bette.
You are a special lady thank you from the bottom of my heart
What a wonderful lady,beautiful dog coats, our madam refuses to wear a coat have tried twice both times goes and gets in her bed and won’t move until the coat comes off then it is all smiles and wags. Our old rescue before her loved his coats.
Can you believe we've had another little girl, with one eye come to us this week. Her name is Nicci - named after someone very special ;) She also came to us from RSPCA Queensland. Another little heartbeat that we just could not look the other way for.
She was in a bad state, cataracts, her eye removed due to glaucoma, her skin is terrible, from long term lack of care, missing fur, sores and some thick black elephant skin. Her back legs bowed, resembling a teeny tiny cowgirl who's just stepped off the horse, we'll need to follow up there to see if she needs treatment. She has a cataract in her remaining eye which means she is low vision and she is on eye drops to ensure her remaining eye stays healthy and doesn't end up in the same state as the other.
RSPCA started treating her skin, gave her a dental and did her eye surgery before making sure she was well and fit for flying down to us.
She has met her foster mum Ruth with tail wags and enthusiasm. She's had a nice medicated bath, scoffed her dinner and is a happy soul. She is an utter little ganoush who wants nothing more than to be with you! The closer the better, on you, is her preference!!!!
Welcome Nicci, you are beautiful, you are precious, you are safe - you have been Rescued With Love xx ...
We need a couple more Foster Carers to help us at RWL.
It is not for the fainted hearted as you know. We are currently all with older dogs with issues, and there is no way we are going to compromise our care on our little souls. We are all tired, and want to save more, but are aware the only way RWL will work properly is with people who are able to do what we do.
Ideally, we would love it if you have adopted a bub from us. Why? We know your home, you, your family, your bubs. It helps us without having to start cold. It means if we want to take on a dog – we will have a good idea whether or not you will be able to manage them. Tick.
You would need to be able to make vet appointments. That means heading to Balwyn Vet Clinic or East Doncaster Vet Clinic or Mount Eliza Vet Clinic. You will see a lot of our vets. You will also have to understand there could be emergency trips in the middle of the night, and possibly a palliative or seriously ill little one. You will need to know what is involved. You will need to be able to take directions from RWL in protocols, treatments and meds.
Things can happen where your little one might become unadoptable and remain as a Foundation Dog with us. You need to have 24 hour access inside and outside, and have a good understanding of ‘the pack’ and basic behavioural work.
Pictured here is the beautiful 15 yo Snowy. He has limited vision (and a recurrent sore eye) he may need help to go outside and ointment in his eyes. He has some cognitive function issues where he will pace a bit but he sleeps all night and is beautifully toilet trained. He sometimes will bark if left alone if he can’t find you, other times he’s fine. He gets very cold so likes warm jammies and a warm bed to help with his arthritis. He likes a special mixture of food, he has no teeth and takes a while to eat. But he is so sweet, and so gentle, and easy to look after – would you give him a home for his remaining days? He is being co parented by Trish and Netta – as circumstances have changed – if we found a family who were perfect for Snowy – it would be amazing. But we are realistic – and we will not give up on the 100% dedication to those in our care.
This is what we mean. We find homes for all kinds of souls in need. It is rewarding but it is not for everyone. We know you are working full time, have children that have full lives, have aged parents dependant on you, and a sudden change in life means you can’t foster. We get it.
So, if you feel you do want to apply to foster – drop us a line. Tell us about your home, your family, your pets, and whether you have the time and big heart to do this gig. It’s not for everyone – but it is for some of us. Email us at email@example.com ...
Oh if I foster any dogs they won't be leaving the house. 🤔😉😉
If I didn’t have a full house already he would be loved here ❤️🐶❤️
The big galoot would be too much for him 😞. Wish I lived closer to foster or at least be more useful. Blanket maker could be my best role 🥳
Would keep and be mum care mum also
Shared in hope.
You are very special people .. thank you for all you do for these dogs x 💞🐶😄
I hope you do find some lovely helpers, I wish I could, but health and the fact that I don't drive won't help.
As Idont live within your reach I would not qualify but I will never stop caring hugs to all
Beautiful pup. Thanks for all the special work you do. Unfortunately, live interstate, but I have my own 15 years dog, she's very special like Snowy. Love her to bits. Love you Snowy, you're beautiful x

Sometimes we take on little ones, we squeeze them in because we know they need us. We know we can give them exactly what the need, but we also know they may never be adopted. We hope that we can just be a temporary stop for them on their way to their new homes, but we also know, that nature of what we do, the types of dogs we’re here for, means some will need to stay.
We often don’t know, until they are in our care exactly what we’ve taken on. The intake assessment day, and the following few days, while we wait for results to come back often reveal huge, unexpected little surprises that completely change the plans we have for a little one. Benson was one of those dogs, we knew he needed us, we knew he had some issues, we did think we’d be able to treat him and move him to his forever home, but when some of his little medical and emotional “surprises” revealed themselves, we felt he was a dog we couldn’t put up for adoption at least not yet.
This dear little boy was complicated, the neglect he had suffered, immense, but before that, someone somewhere along the way must have loved him, spent time with him. They taught him to come and sit, and sometimes he shakes paws. The saddest thing is he screams, when you touch him unexpectedly. If he knows you are going to pat him, and is expecting it he loves it, but if he doesn’t realise it’s coming he panics , no matter how gentle you are, he thinks he is going to be hurt so he screams, pulls away and runs off yelping.
He has some health issues. He’s had bladder stones and so needs a special diet and 6 monthly urine testing. He has dry eye so needs eye ointment daily for that. He also has a ruptured disk, surgery is not recommended but until we felt this was under control and pain being managed, we couldn’t consider adoption. We have him at a stage now where he is managing much better, but the next issue was – would anyone want a little old man with issues……
A couple of weeks ago, a couple that have adopted 2 dogs from us now, recently lost one of their precious little ones. We know them, we know the impeccable care they had given their special needs dogs, they take on the old, the frail the blind. They let us know they would be happy to take on a special needs dog. The wheels were set in motion, foster mum Linda talked to Lynn and Garry, went to visit them (an almost 4 hour round trip) to make sure everything was just perfect and decided that, this was, without a doubt, the perfect place for Benson.
Thank you Linda for going above and beyond and thank you Lynn and Gary for all you do for these little ones xx ...
