DOGS REHOMED IN 2012 - PAGE 4
Archie came back into rescue as his owner had serious family health problems, which meant that Archie was being left for too long. He has now been rehomed to Trisha and Dave, who have had rotts for years. Archie is living very happily with their elderly Jack Russell Vinny, who is having a new lease of life with the arrival of Archie. Archie is having the time of his life swimming in the large pond in the back garden - trying to catch the fish!
Squiggles came into rescue as she was unwanted by her alcoholic owners. She is about 18 months old. Squiggles was a rather timid girl who loved to snuggle up to you to gain her confidence around you. Squiggles (or Squiggs as she was also known) has been spayed and has had a benign growth removed from her elbow. Sqiggs, now known as Bo, has gone to live with Laurie and Christine and their lovely boy Wilson. She has settled in very well, and Wilson is learning not to leave his dinner laying about!
Bubba, a little bitch of about 6 months old, came into rescue as a stray. She came from the same area as Lottie, and was found in the same condition. We are assuming she is one of Lottie's puppies. Despite her terrible conditon, Anita and Martin have taken her in and are giving her the very best of everything. Unfortunately, the stray kennels where Bubba was held, had her spayed. This almost cost poor Bubba her life - as her immune system was unable to cope due to her demodectic mange (this suppresses the immune system)and both the internal and external stitches broke down. Fortunately, she is now well on the road to recovery and much loved. She is now called Bliss!. And in just three weeks, look at the dramatic improvement!
Noo Noo came back into rescue as her owners were having health problems, and were moving to a flat. Noo Noo is 7, spayed and a very affectionate girl. Noo Noo weighed in at a hefty 61 kilos - but is now a healthy 44 kilos. Having been with us for some time, Noo Noo started to get depressed in kennels - we put an appeal on the website and Claire and Karl, who already have an RRT dog, Hector, offered to foster her. Within 24 hours they had asked to keep her - as she has charmed them with her loving nature. hector is getting on very well with her too. Noo Noo is now known as Lulu - she doesn't care as long as she gets lots of cuddles!
Sadie came into care with her son Byron. At 4 years old, she had spent the last 2 and a half years living outside, although she did live in the house for a couple of years. Sadie is a very loving dog. She knows all the basic commands, and has now settled in with Judith and Edward and their two rotties and five cavaliers and really enjoys having a fuss and a cuddle. She is absolutely in her element being in a loving home.
5 year old Alfie came into rescue as his owners lost both their house and their business, and are having to move into rented property. Alfie had lived with four young children (12 weeks, 18 months, 6 and 7)and is great with kids. Alfie has been a very lucky boy, and has gone to live with Fred, Davinia and Elly the RRT rottie. Alfie has already learned that he must not chase the chickens in the garden. Elly is showing him the house rules (which include sleeping on the sofa!). He is continuing with his diet, as he would like to impress Elly one day!
Ebony, who came into rescue at 9 years old as her owner had passed away,and who was very underweight, has found her new home. Ebony is now a permenant fixture with Yolanda and Paul, Archie and Phoebe. Yolanda says she has settled in so very well and is so happy, that everyone feels it is best if she stays for life! Congratulations Ebony.....you are an extremely lucky girl!
