Bones melts hearts

Bones (Fernando) came home with us early February 2009. He took my breath away when I first met him being walked by Karen at the Refuge. Only days after first meeting Bones I introduced him to my fiancé Ange who attended the refuge with me. She also immediately fell in love with Bones and we decided he was the dog for us. Bones is registered as a Pit Bull cross, however I was prepared to meet all requirements set by my local council to bring Bones home.

Snug is desperate for love!

Snug was brought to the Home by rangers over a week ago. She is about 12-years-old and her back legs are very stiff and sore so she isn't very agile. Snug was underweight and very timid when she arrived. Our staff have shown her much love and with gentle encouragement she is slowly gaining confidence and a little weight each day.

Blanket Appeal

Wet weather and low overnight temperatures has resulted in a need for donations of old blankets to keep our dogs warm at night. The wet weather is making it difficult to get washed blankets dry and we are asking for supporters to donate old (but clean) blankets.

Beautiful Barney needs a home

Posted by Karen Rhodes on 13 July 2009 | 2 Comments

Tags:

Barney was surrendered to us recently because his owner has gone into hospice care and won't be returning home. He is an adorable 13-year-old Staffy x Corgi and was an inside dog so is perfectly toilet trained. He is extremely social, plays with cats, was very good with the grand kids and LOVES a cuddle - you could say he's the perfect dog!
