Jessie & Kiera

Wednesday 15th September 2021

These two little girls came in just over 3 weeks ago frightened of humans .. in fact I will go so far as to say Terrified !! I likened them to semi feral .. like meer cats .. having found their lookout tower on the wall and darting here and there .. taking a bite of their food and running away to eat it then coming back for more ! In 3 weeks barriers have been broken.... We have had to seperate them to eat as Kiera was eating everything and Jessie was becoming leaner causing concern ... we now have placed Jessie in a crate to eat .. Kiera has her own little space and both…

Jake

Tuesday 14th September 2021

Jake is growing into a lovely young pup.. He is a happy boy mixing with a couple of dogs at a time , climbing all over Dinky who will now tell him off... The others make out they want to play but in essence they want to steal his toys 😂. It's so important he learns from the dogs now as he enters the next stage..... Hand reared puppies can be a problem as they miss the important nurturing from their mothers and can go on to develop problems including separation anxiety, guarding, biting ....this is where the dogs will help him and teach him dog etiquette but the most important dog to Jake is Dinky ..…

BRACKEN UPDATE

Wednesday 1st September 2021

ONE WHOLE YEAR AND STILL MISSING.... A day that started off great, out early with the dogs as my day was planned to paint our daughters bedroom.....Pete took the dogs out mid day then called to tell me Bracken had been missing for an hour.......Bracken never came home....none of this made sense as he knows the area so well! We did everything we could, with a team that took over everything getting Brackens profile out on social media so I could concentrate on finding my dog. Brackens name went far and wide and I would like to Thank everyone who still look out for Bracken.... (The photograph of Bracken in the heathers I took that morning...) Every day I search, Everyday I look ,…

Jake

Wednesday 25th August 2021

From No Hope ....To Hope (2 weeks in) At the start of our journey I was frightened to open the door to my office... next to our bedroom... because I knew Jakes chances of survival were slim ... but as the days went by each time I opened the door I saw this little boy eagerly awaiting his feed ... Today our vet ( Yatton Vets) saw Jake 2 weeks after initial visit and was overjoyed and amazed at the puppy before her having doubled in size ! There is a skin condition going on which was prominent from the onset and has been treated so hoping we stop this in its tracks. Second dose of worming…
