waited such a long time for my forever family to
come and find me at DoggieRescue shelter I was
feeling a bit down hearted, but on 28th August
2016 I scored an adoption appointment and I
finally met my new Mummy & Daddy and we all
fell in love with each other. I was ADOPTED
and we became a family!!!!
Five months later and everything’s going really
good here at my new home. I am very happy
with lots of yummy food and Daddy takes us
( my ex DR sister Pippa, a recent family
addition ) for a walk every day down near the
river. When Mummy comes home we have
cuddles and all get in the big bed and watch
television until we go to sleep.
We play together every morning in Daddy’s and
my bed and sometimes Millie from next door
comes over to play but Pippa doesn’t like her
very much and is a little bit jealous.
Daddy took some photos of us to show you and
we picked out the ones that don’t show all the
weight we put on over Christmas. All that ham

ears that there is a perfect home for every doggie

wait for their own happy ending.

months, sometimes years before being adopted. Why do we

who have been left traumatized / abandoned and who may be
depressed or anxious to love us on sight? Do we come to a
shelter seeking to replace a dearly loved pet who has now
passed away and leave disappointed? Many people do….
Unless you adopt a very young puppy or kitten most shelter animals
have traumatic experiences to overcome—some just from being
abandoned and over stressed in a pound but many from abuse and
years of neglect , health issues and lack of training. Some are not
housetrained, have not been socialized with other pets and many have
lived a life isolated from most human contact in a backyard. Doggie
Rescue has trainers/behaviourists who work on our dogs and most
respond extremely well given kindness, patience, time and love, like
the terrified Nelson above right on his first day at DoggieRescue. What
a difference a few months of kindness and socialization have made to
his confidence, his personality and his adoptability!
ADOPTING A PET: If you are seriously considering adopting a shelter
pet why not give a chance to a dog or a cat who is considered “less
adoptable”, the one who never has an adoption appointment. Don’t
just make up your mind the first time that you meet—come a few times
until this dog or cat knows you and looks forward to your visit. Spend
some time with your choice and watch their personality and affection
develop towards you. After all humans don’t normally respond with
affection to strangers, so why should a pet be any different. An animal
needs to get to know you to love you, and this works both ways.
Sometimes the pet who you have walked past and not even
given a second look might, with time and a little attention,
be your perfect match. Give a chance to a pet who NEEDS
YOU—it might be the best decision you have ever made!

• TICKS—ARE LIFE THREATENING! You must provide protection against ticks and as well it is
IMPORTANT to check your dog daily, especially if you live in a ‘tick’ area. Run your fingers through their coat,
check under their collar, between their toes and even inside their mouths and ears! There are many spot on
treatments available that you can use. Be vigilant!! If in doubt what to use call us as there are many new
treatments available that we can discuss.
• FLEAS—These biting insects can infest your dog and make it’s life an abject misery through their irritating
bites and ability to transmit disease, especially so if your dog has flea allergies. Fleas can cause anaemia, also
scabby, itchy rashes and loss of hair. They also infect your pet with tapeworm. Protect your pet with spot on
treatments. You will also need to treat infested areas in your house.
• FLIES— Only tiny but they can STING and cause untold misery when biting your dog’s ears. Fly bites can
even cause your pets ears to crumble away. They can also lay eggs and cause maggots. Many sprays are
available to use and a well known, old fashioned treatment is Vaseline.
• MOSQUITOES— Carry heartworm which can be fatal if left untreated. There are simple preventatives
that you can use - chewy tablets, spot on treatments or an annual injection can prevent this terrible disease.
Please note it is important for your dog to have a BLOOD TEST before preventative treatment is given!
SO HAVE FUN IN THE SUN AND FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE MEASURES
TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR PET DOES TOO!
