are dogs with either medical or behavioural

VIDEO We have a very special little pup
DoggieRescue has rescued under
CLICK duty of care. Her name is Little
HERE Hermoine, a Staffy X who is only 7
weeks old and weighs 1.6kg. She
came from the pound’s vet and needed
urgent care. She has serious injuries to her
back. The stench of her tissue pervaded
the Vet Clinic. We have only showed one
photo of the injuries as it is very gory. She
is safe now and on the very long road to
recovery.

“ The wound as you can see below
covers from col ar level to just above
the tail. The infection when she arrived
was horrible with a smel that filled the
building. We have surgically cleaned
the wound, debrided all the rotting
necrotic skin and soft tissue. She is on
fluids, pain medication and antibiotics.
We are still awaiting culture results.”
Dee

Day 1: The tiny Staffy x puppy was transferred to our clinic and
this photo was taken the day she arrived. We all thought it was a

severe burn at first. She was made as comfortable as possible and
she nibbled some food. Hermoine could not walk and the plan was
to x ray the nex t day and clean up her dead tissue.

JANUARY 2017 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 9

Day 2: Upon examination of her injuries, Dr. Dee could see puncture marks in Hermoine’s flesh which
suggested it was not a burn but rather that she had been picked up by a dog and severely shaken, tearing off layers
of skin. X rays revealed she also had 2 vertebrae out of alignment, which explained why she could not walk and
supporting the suggestion that it was a dog attack. She was not provided with any veterinary care after this
happened so infection had set in. Luckily for Hermoine, all her neurological system was intact.

“ It is going to take many months of daily dressings to improve her condition and she may need
further surgical work and possibly skin grafts, depending how the skin granulates. It is only
after most of her physical injuries heal will we be able to ascertain what behavioural
scarring this has produced.” Dee

ONE WEEK LATER: Hermoine wants
to say a HUGE thank you for all the
donations, thoughts, prayers and love she
has received since her story was posted on
DoggieRescue’s Facebook site. As you can
see she is being loved and cared for by us all
at The Cottage Animal Hospital.

Hermoine is doing well! The infection has
reduced and the wound has shrunk and is
about 3/4 the size and the skin is starting to
granulate! Yaaaaay! She is getting into her
tucker which is great to see. We will keep you
all updated as she continues to heal . Thanks
once again, from the bottom of our paws.

2017 Dear DoggieRescue Supporters,
IS
As we embrace a brand new year I am looking
HERE forward to the challenges ahead. Our goals for 2017
are to save as many animals as we can and find
them forever homes.

But DoggieRescue is not just about RESCUE, it is
also about REHABILITATION. Many animals come
to us broken, both mentally and physically, it can
take many long months for them to relax and feel
happy. It can sometimes take even longer than
that for abused dogs to feel safe and to be able to
respond to the human touch and learn to t rust again.
One such dog is Jedi, see his story below.

There are many more doggies like Jedi waiting in
pounds for a second chance at life. Please help us
to give them that chance.

Monika

Jedi was so anxious when he came to us from the pound VIDEO
that no one could get near him or catch him. We had to
let him settle in for a while in his kennel and eventually CLICK
we were able to handle him. He lets people pick him up HERE
and move him to where he needs to go because he gets
scared when a lead is put around his neck. Jedi seems
to have settled into the routine of being carried around
and what a way to be treated like a king! He’s certainly
not a small dog but small enough so he can be carried
everywhere. For Jedi, he gets the most therapeutic effect
from other dogs because he is social and thus this has
slowly helped to build up some of his confidence to the
point where we have been able to place him in yards that
are more ex posed to the outside world and where he can
see and get used to seeing more people and the daily
activities of the shelter. Jedi also seems to not have had
much ex perience socialising with other dogs and so
being in groups with other dogs has not only boosted his
confidence but helped him to be more dog-like.

My vision for Jedi is to see his anx ious habits begin to
gradually slow down more as we apply the TLC that
Monika’s Doggie Rescue is proud to embody and is
recognised for, so that one day he can be completely
free, happy and a fully-actualised balanced doggie. I
have seen it happen before and it is a sight to behold!

As we enter a new year, it really is
time to ponder the future of animal

JANUARY 2017 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 15
With thanks to ANIMALS AUSTRALIA for some of the material used here….
What is some of the evidence?

1. Just six months ago we were all celebrating a monumental leap forward for animals. Greyhound racing —
along with ‘live baiting’, drugging, fatal injuries, and mass graves — was set to become a thing of the past in
NSW. But since then, immense political pressure and a relentless media campaign have successfully
overturned the historic greyhound racing ban.

It seems that again, the interests of animals — to be free from pain, fear and abuse — have come second to
the interests of the almighty dollar. The industry and its supporters think they have won. The animal abusers
think they have won. We all need to prove them wrong. But it ought not to end this way.

Our initial disappointment at the back down quickly turned into determination. Not for a moment does this
signal that this industry has a future. It remains teetering on the precipice. And one mis-step is all it will
take… The opportunistic politicians who pressured the NSW Premier to overturn this ban are set to have
many sleepless nights. Their political destinies are now wedded to an industry whose sense of right and
wrong went missing decades ago.

But politicians have forgotten that they have ‘befriended’ an industry where no behaviour, no matter how
abhorrent or criminal was off the table, if a race could be won. Sickening cruelty and highly illegal drugs were
commonplace ‘training’ methods. Now that prize purses are back on offer, it is only a matter of time until they
will be again. Now, once again the animals need us. Going back into battle against this industry again is
not something anyone had planned for. But it is exactly what we need to do. This is not just about
greyhounds or kittens, piglets, rabbits, or possums. This is about every animal abused for profit. It is
about every industry that thinks it can bully its way out of obeying what limited laws exist to protect animals.

What happens next will send signals far and wide. You can bet that cruel industries everywhere — from
factory farming to live export — are watching. The greyhound industry did not deserve a second chance, but
money and politics won out. The post truth era has enabled all of this to happen through simple denial.

3. And the vilest of all – live animal export!! Why is this
industry allowed to continue? For animals, a step onto a
live export ship can lead to a most cruel and brutal fate.
We know, because over forty investigations have
revealed what the industry does not want the public to
see. When Animals Australia's first Indonesian live
export investigation was aired on Four Corners, a
massive public outcry forced the Australian government
to regulate the live trade for the very first time. In fact the
trade ceased for a short period of time and was
supported by many including cattle farmers right up until
it affected their bank accounts and politics intervened
with some suggesting racist overtones because the trade
was stopped with Indonesia.

New rules made exporting harder, more expensive,
and fewer animals today endure this journey. But while
animals continue to be exposed to all the known risks of live export, and with most still enduring fully
conscious slaughter in importing countries, investigations into this trade continue rather than the banning of it
because post truth Australia denies the appalling violence is continuing.

BREAKING NEWS – November 17 2016 – THE WASHINGTON POST!!!

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentina’s Congress has passed a law to ban greyhound racing
in a bid to reduce the risk of animal cruelty in the South American country. The measure includes
jail terms of up to four years and fines of about $5,000 for anyone who organizes, participates in
or promotes dog races. President Mauricio Macri has backed the measure and is expected to
sign the bill into law in the coming days.

For this adventure, we went to Narrabeen Lagoon to
walk the tracks. With stops for water and treats and
a longer lunch break, this round trip can take 3-4
hours. A BIG day out for these puppies.

Bailey is a 4-5 year old Jack Russell X Pug who
has been with us for some time now. Bailey takes
some time to trust his handler and has gained this
trust of volunteer Adele. Bailey walks well on lead,
but some smells and looks can remind him of his
past and you will need to learn to read the signs in
order to calm him and avoid him lunging in
protection. Bailey is treat oriented, and with
patience and love, he will learn it is OK. Bailey also
likes to show he is the boss of any other dog that
may show you affection. A person with rescue
experience or willing to make numerous visits to
gain his trust will be the best suited to Bailey.

I can make new friends anywhere.

Every morning I wag my tail as we head out of our gate
wondering who I am going to meet today. I especially love it
when we go into shops - I licked a man’s leg in the paper shop
today (Mum was embarrassed) and he bent down and patted
me, we went into the chemist and I got not one cuddle but two!

And coming home Mum walked
past a bus stop full of people - new
friends everywhere!!! First seat two
old people - sitting with sad faces -
but when they saw me they smiled
and patted me. Next seat four kids
and I got so much attention I sat up
and begged! Next seat a man and a
child in a pram. More pats and even
a cuddle. This is such fun.

People say that the world is full of
strangers but in my world, it is
brimming over with my friends. To
all my friends I know and all my
friends I have yet to meet I wish you
a very HAPPY 2017. Chips.

I am so happy and so loved by my forever family.
I skim across the earth’s surface at high speed, ears

happy to curl up with my mates Chihuahua, Lois

• Feature BESSY’S LEGACY OF LOVE…. By Janiece Irvine

Dear Monika,

Sadly I write to you to let you know that Bessy passed
away from heart failure Thursday week ago. We adopted
Bessy from you on 27 December 2005 at an approximate
age of 3 to 4 years old. At the time both Bessy and our
family were very sad, Bessy having been with you for
3 months and just given birth to a still born puppy and
ourselves losing our little dog Misty to illness.

Bessy weighed under 4 kilos and was very timid and
particularly wary of men and groups of people. With our
care she gained confidence and we healed each other's
hearts. She gave us so much love and joy and is a sadly
missed member of our family. She was our little baby.
Bessy has lived most her life at the beach at Curl Curl
(see photo below) having moved from Killara 9 years ago.
She had a love of food, and not dog food, so became
quite the gourmet dog. She enjoyed her walks and at
South Curl Curl coffee shop she was a regular.

A NEW BEGINNING FOR EARL By Lisa Kane

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR
FROM OUR BEAUTIFUL EARL

Hello Readers,

This is a photo of our beautiful Earl three and a half
years on, and his New Year resolution is to try and not
look so handsome & take all the attention away from his
older sister Jenna (also an ex DR doggie).

We answered the call for temporary fostering, just two
weeks they said. We had actually picked a dog on the
web site but when we arrived Monika said Earl had only
just come in and would we take him. Earl was frightened
of nearly everything, the list was long, he was also quite
aggressive at times to people including us and other
dogs, he had obviously been ill treated. But we were
patient and tried not to be ‘offended’ when he wanted to
bite us and always remembered that this was his only
form of defence in his other life.

“ It came the time for us to return Earl to Doggie
Rescue, which we did, but our hearts were
broken. I contacted Monika every day to see how
he was and or if anyone wanted him, the answer
always being no.” Lisa

We decided to foster Earl long term and at
Christmas of that year he became a permanent
member of the family. The New Year was a new
beginning for our family with the wonderful
addition of Earl.

Earl is the most loving, affectionate and loyal dog you
could ever meet, his greatest love is Jenna, who also
came to us from DoggieRescue 9 years ago ( both
pictured at left with some of their friends ), she
pretends his juvenile behaviour is tedious and tells him
off every now and again, but loves to join in his play
when she thinks no one is watching!

Thank you so much Monika for allowing us to love
these two very beautiful dogs.

Lisa Kane & family

RESCUE LIFESAVER

Sponsor: “ In loving Express your love and commitment
memory of Penny & to the doggies who no one else cares
Lucy!” Hannah about! With your regular monthly
contribution our life-saving work will
continue….

In 2013-2014 year 27,438 dogs & cats
were destroyed in pounds & at the
RSPCA in NSW alone. Operating as a
charity for 15 years we have rescued
over 11,600 dogs from council pounds.

DoggieRescue is dedicated to saving
precious lives. These dogs receive
immediate medical care, are de-sexed,
vaccinated and micro-chipped and await a
loving family at our shelter, “Doggie
Wood” at Ingleside. We are a “no-kill”
shelter. Our commitment to these dogs is
for the rest of their lives. Our running
costs are considerable and increasing.
We receive no government funding and
rely exclusively on donations.

In this economic climate our need for
support has never been greater….

• Your contribution of $29 per month pays for food & shelter costs
for 1 doggie

• Your contribution of $49 per month pays for food, shelter &
veterinary costs for 1 doggie

• Your contribution of $79 per month pays for food, shelter and
veterinary costs and contributes to the expansion of our program –
there are thousands more lives to be saved!
