FOSTER DOGS IN LONG TERM CARE (these dogs will not be adopted, they will remain under our care)

TED LAKING Ted has done wonderfully well since he came to us but his treatment is costly and it is not a cure. All we can do is try and keep Ted as well as possible with drugs. He is settled with Shirley and into a routine, he needs to stay there with no further upset in his life. Shirley has spent much time learning about cushings and understands the condition and that it is life limiting. However, Ted continues to do well, he looks wonderful and we are hoping he has happy years ahead of him because he deserves it. UPDATE 09/09/2019 from Shirley. 'Ted's blood results came back and his cortisol levels are still high so his Vetoryl has been increased from 30mg to 40mg and his bloods will be repeated again in 4 weeks. Ted is absolutely fine in himself, he's a laid back lovely boy with a passion for Teddies'

LADY BROCKLEBANK will stay with us and with her foster mum Chris. She does have medical issues and at the age of 13 we think it's only kind to let her stay where she is and be supported by us.

TOBY HARRISON Toby will be staying with us due to a long term medical issue. He is very happy with his foster mum Dawn and it really is the kindest thing to do for Toby.

UPDATE 23/09/2019 from Dawn. Toby continues to be a lovely little man and has become Alfie’s best friend, he still doesn’t like his eye drops in but is tolerating me ( most of the time )

BELLA SOMMERVILLE has medical issues and will remain with her foster family and Alfie for as long as she needs us.

FOSTERS NOT READY FOR ADOPTION YET

MAISIE CROSS is with Kath Cross in North Lincolnshire. Kath says ' Maisie is coming along nicely now and will be spayed in a couple of weeks'

BENJI MARSHALL is with Linda White in North Lincs. Benji has been with Linda for some weeks now and has settled in well. He is quite headstrong and needs some work doing both socially and medically. His backs legs are very bad. We have started to look in depth at his back legs this week and will need referring to an orthopaedic specialist. Linda says 'Not much to report on Benji...still having his hydrotherapy, which he loves. Enjoys his walks and the rough and tumble with the grandkids. Had a practise at being a troublesome teenager but am able to manage it'

MILO & LOLA HILL have been moved to Jaqy Harrington-Halstead. They have both settled into their new home very well. Lola has started hydro to help build up the muscles on her operated leg. Milo is his same old self.

PRINCESS EASDEN Life is very much a struggle for this little one so she will be in our care for the foreseeable future. Caroline, her foster mum says 'Princess same as last update except booked in vets for nails to be done. Still very little progress on feet and legs.

GRACIE COOPER is with Arlene in Glasgow. Just a year old, she needs spaying and we are waiting for her to come into season so maybe some time. Arlene says 'Gracie doing great, getting there a bit more with her eating so hopefully that keeps up and no more fussiness'

PRINCESS PURVIS is with Vivianne in the North East. A lovely 5 year old.. Vivianne says 'Princess is doing well, getting her out on her lead a lot more although she is still very reluctant to exercise. She is not very happy with our recent house guest Alfie and we are keeping them well apart. She may be the least playful shoo I know but for the lack of play she makes up for with an abundance of love and cuddles - she is always by my side nudging me for more'

SUZIE MORELLO is in the South East. A lovely 8 year old girl. Suzie has moved to Karen in the South East and Karen says 'Suzie is doing well. She is a lovely natured 8 year old and has settled in well with Jazmine our 2 year old. She can be a bit stubborn on a walk and has 3 speeds with 3 being super slow! She likes the car seat and this week have introduced her to our bike trailer which she had no problems with. She is pretty laid back with most things although still a bit anxious around my 6ft lofty son. We still think she is in season but is keeping herself really clean. She is a delight to care for'

JIMMY AND DANNY ATM we are unable to say who they are with or where they are other than they are in the North with one of our very experienced fosterers. Both boys are 7 years old. Their fosterer says 'Both eating well, Danny is showing signs now of putting weight on, he looks as if he has got a bit more muscle on his hips but still needs to put a bit more on. Does walk a lot better now although not keen on other dogs when he is out on the lead and sometimes sets Jimmy of barking as well. This is an on going training to get him to stop. He is fine with our dogs in the house it's just when he's out walking. Danny has also started to jump up to be next to us and is now enjoying having cuddles and tummy rubs which is a big improvement. He's still not very keen on having his back end touched and does growl a little when he has to have his feet dried. Jimmy is really a little love. Eats well, sleeps well, and will not jump up but stands and looks at you. When picked up he loves to have cuddles and give kisses. Both are going to groomer next week as they really need a good tidy up and claws cutting. Have bathed them both Danny more than Jimmy as Danny's skin was very dry. Seems to have worked as he is not rubbing his back on the furniture anymore. Both are fine to bath and dry with dryer. Will make two lovely companion dogs but may still need reinforcement with some training'

BENJI LEACH is a very sad boy, he's had a rough life, his foster mum Denise says 'Benji is doing really well. He eats and sleeps well, thoroughly enjoys his walks, came with me for the scavenger hunt with the Cubs and was in his element receiving lots of attention from all the children'

SWEEP AND DAISY LEWIS are with Sandy in the North East. Sandy says 'Daisy is no bother at all, she eats well, walks well and can run with Sweep and my Bella, sleeps till you get up in a morning. Hubby takes them all for a walk before he goes to work. Daisy, she loves sitting on the arm of the settee watching the world go by, sooo affectionate and loves to be hugged. SWEEP well what can I say about this character, eats well, sleeps well and just follows you everywhere, loves his hugs and both go mad when you pick there leaders up. Both get on well with my Bella and no problem with my cat 🐈😁 Sweep still gets excited when he is out walking but only when he sees another do , but once they have met he calms down, he sometimes needs a strongish person to walk him when this happens. They both have there second jab on Tuesday and I will mention his ear again even though he has stopped whimpering when u touch it just to be on the safe side. We have loved having them here they are so together and settled so well, whoever gets them will love them to bits'

ROXY WESTERMAN and is with Jenny in West Yorkshire. Roxy is a lovely 7 year old girl. Jenny says 'Roxy is coming along slowly . Eyes are 100% better with the optimmune ointment. She’s on twice weekly baths for fungal infection. Continues on her diet (Satiety biscuit) and has lost 0.3 kgs in 2weeks. She can walk and run short distances and has great difficulty in going up steps but she’s doing really well. Final vaccination is due on 2/10 when she will also be re weighed. Never responds to her name lol. She is now becoming quite vocal and sits and looks at me and barks like mad for no apparent reason. She gets along with my other two. Sleeps well in her own bed in my room. She lets you know when she wants to go out to do her business, likes to play with her toys after she’s had her tea. She’s a loud snorer but she’s a little love'

BORIS DEAN is with Tina in Gloucester. Tina says 'Boris is doing really well. He’s been here 3 weeks now and is now a happy old man who can see now his eyes are clear and can hear now his ears have been sonic blasted!! He’s much more trusting of me now and he will let me do his eye drops with no problem. He is going to my groomers tomorrow and I can’t wait to see what he looks like. He’s a real gentleman and he now runs around the garden wagging his tail and playing with the others. The transformation in this old man is amazing!!'

ERIC PHELPS is 4 years old and is with Angie in South Yorkshire. Angie says 'Eric has had another trip to the vet his urine still had protein in it which is either infection or kidney problems. He has been given another 5 days of antibiotics and is back next week to check his urine again. We have received the vet report and his spinal problems were apparently caused by a toddler cuddling him too hard! The previous owners didn't want to pay for any investigations or treatment so he needs an x-ray to establish what is the cause of the lameness. He does dribble wee but he also marks in the house as he cocks his leg in the same places and I also think there's an element of him not being fully house trained. Joanne Hartland-Hanson kindly ordered him some belly bands but they were too small and hurting him so we have had to abandon them for the moment. Jo is going to make some extenders for them so we can try again. If his urine clears next week the vet is going to neuter him (definitely needed and might help with the marking) do an x-ray of his back and possibly bloods to check his kidney function. He's a fantastic little fella, gentle and sweet natured. He loves to play was with the younger dogs, him and Poppy play lovely and they don't get too raucous. But when dominant Charlie gets involved it is too much and I have to step in. The vet said he needs to avoid jumping, playing too rambunctiously and stairs. I think he has been hit at some point because he cowers when you clean up his wee 😢. He eats well, sleeps downstairs quietly, he's good on the lead, great with kids and other dogs and is apparently good with cats. He will make someone a lovely companion. I'm getting him groomed tomorrow so will post some pics where you can see his lovely little face'

LOLI WILSON is with Julie in Glasgow. A sweet 6 year old Lhasa. Julie says 'Loli is such a loving gentle wee thing, she loves her food, she sleeps all night and has now started playing with Billy my failed Foster. She loves getting groomed, she is continuing to walk beside my zimmer, nothing bothers her, she really is a dream to walk. This week I will be calling the vet to arrange for her to be neutered'

BAILEY POWER, an older boy who is an unclaimed stray and is with Suzanne, Suzanne says 'Well our little Bailey is doing so well, hat a week he's had, coming to a new home and then 19 of his 21 rotten teeth out within two days, poor little soul. We went for his 3 day check and they were thrilled with him. Along with every, yes every member of my veterinary practice falling in love with him. He's got quite a following!! Final dental check next Thursday. He's still on anti biotics and pain killers until then. He gets on well with Teddy and Annie and even Lily the cat!!
He's quite a timid little boy, it appears he really doesn't understand what love and affection are. I think he's frightened of his own shadow sometimes, but we don't know what baggage these little ones bring with them do we..? Never mind Bailey, one day at a time sunbeam. He sleeps well, and amazingly after becoming a little gummy bear eats well too! Still having a few little wee wee accidents in the house but more than understandable.
He's a little dream... And talking of dreams, he's fast asleep at the side of me. Warm, fed, safe and we love him to bits ❤️What a little heart stealer ❤️ xx

DAISY DEAN is with Tina in Gloucester. Tina says' she has finally stopping the humping. She’s a very confused but loving little girl, she gets very protective and possessive around people and things she’s playing with.She is due for a vet check on Tuesday and I will update more then'
