Starting with a reminder again. We have over 2000 members on the group and only a very small number of members have signed up to the £1 per month direct debit scheme, can we please ask you all to support us and join up to this. It would mean so much to the dogs in our care and allow us to continue taking dogs in. The more dogs we home means the more dogs we have offered lifetime back up to, so funds are always needed, not just for current dogs but all our dogs. If just a few of those adopted come back to us and we have no fosters available they will need to go into kennels and we will have no choice but to close our doors. This burden comes with being successful but we don’t want to stop or have to turn dogs away, we won’t need to with your support and all we ask is for £1 per month. You can donate at www.wolfdogrescue.co.uk/donations/ Thank you
It has been another busy month:
We have welcomed Akela to the WdR family, she came to us from a great rescue over in Qatar, the poor girl had no chance of being homed out there and the heat was unbearable for her, the sand was so hot it burnt her pads if she was taken out of kennels. We couldn’t say no, so her epic journey to us began. We need to thank her flight buddies and the wonderful people who transported her to her new foster home, thank you so much. Akela needs a lot of work on her house manners, she likes her crate and is happy to be left. She is enjoying her walks and loves attention. The progress she has made in the few short weeks since arriving has been great. Updates and photos to follow.
We also welcomed Rubea to the family this month, Rubea is absolutely stunning and a real character. It has taken a while for her to settle into the kennels but she is getting there. Unfortunately Rubea had to be rushed to vets where she was given a scan and x – rays and bloods taken. This cost £449.00 but luckily she is fine and probably due to her being stressed, not eating and howling she had a build up of gas which is no under control. She has had a recent trip to the beach and has also been to a local steam fair for a day out.
We also saw the arrival of Riley this month. We have been extremely lucky and through all your support and shares of his post managed to get him into the perfect home where he will receive obedience training to start with, then be assessed to see if he will be suitable for working security or tracking, but most importantly he will be allowed to be a dog and have lots of fun while receiving lots of love and guidance. Massive thank you to everyone who recommended people to us, we have made a few new contacts and raised a lot of awareness which is just brilliant.
We have two dogs waiting to come in:
Teyha is looking for a foster home with no other dogs or cats, where she can be assessed ready for her forever home. This is urgent, we do not have the funds to take dogs into kennels so without foster placements we cannot help. If you think you could foster and would like to discuss fostering in detail please email us : firstname.lastname@example.org
Also Nefus who is a pure Czech, 2 year old neutered male Italian Import. He can suffer from SA, can be destructive when left, but likes his crate and happy to be crated when left, he is good with other dogs but can be reactive when on lead. He needs a foster home – please email if you are able to foster: email@example.com
The lovely Ashkii has been adopted and is in a wonderful home where he will receive all the love and cuddles he wants. We need to say a HUGE thank you to Kate and David for fostering this big lad for us and for doing all they did and all the work they put in with him. Sorry you had him longer than expected, but as you know we need to wait until the right home comes along.
Dogs currently available are Shoba and Ayasha. For more details please see their individual adverts on the website and on the facebook group & page.
Shoba needs an experienced large breed owner, he would be best suited to be an only dog but can live alongside a calm female dog. No cats, No children. He is fantastic on lead, fantastic in the home, crate trained, loves to please, loves fuss, loves to train, loves going out with the scooter, he can forget himself from time to time and get over excited and a little boisterous so a calm environment would be good for him. He has bonded massively with his foster carer so a few visits would be preferred. Current location: Wiltshire
Ayasha is still in kennels and has been assessed out and about, she is going into town twice a week for socialisation and her fitness levels are now good and she can enjoy long walks again. She is a real people lover. She is simply adorable and loves attention, loves people. She is fantastic on lead, fantastic out and about and non-reactive meeting new dogs. She will be so happy with someone who is home most of the time and as an only dog as she can get a little jealous of attention. She has been to the beach too where she met a seal, she was a very good girl and showed no reaction to it at all. Ayasha is such a lovely girl, she deserves her own family to love and a spot on the sofa next to you for cuddle time. Please help this wonderful girl get her forever home. Current location: Norfolk
