The lovely Khalida, who is now known as Grace, has been adopted this month, Jayne has done such an amazing job with this nervous girl. When she arrived into rescue she was a shell of a dog and terrified. A massive thank you to Julie Kelham and the NI society for acting so quickly and taking her in, and to Lindsey who fostered her for a short period until we were able to take her. She has been spayed and is fully vaccinated. She has come such a long way and is now actively seeking human attention and showing affection to her family and is playing with the other dogs. There is still a long road ahead for Grace but she continues to surprise us and improves a little each day. There is no way she would be able to leave Jayne and her family, she has certainly found her forever home and we couldn’t be happier for her. The name change came about due to Jayne continuously saying ‘you are amazing’ which then led to ‘Amazing Grace’ which then became Grace as she started to respond to it Love it!
The lovely Ayasha, who is now known as Skyla, has been officially adopted this month and is settling in really well and is enjoying some lovely pack walks. She is still adjusting to her new life but with the love and patience of her new owners, Katy and John, she is making great progress.
We have welcomed Nefus into the WdR family this month. He has been in kennels for a few weeks and will be moving to a foster home this weekend where he will be fully assessed; updates to follow.
We have been asked to take in another dog, Skye, she is in need of a foster home and we still have Hunter who is waiting for a foster placement. We cannot express enough how important fosters are and we do seem to struggle to find the right foster placements, so if you have ever considered fostering and would like some more information on the process then please get in touch. Please see individual adverts for both Skye and Hunter and if you are in a position to help we would love to chat to you. Fostering saves lives!!
Codek is still in foster and under assessment, we are having a few settling in issues and some unwanted behaviours with him, but a massive thank you to his wonderful fosters for not giving in and continuing to work through these issues. Massive thank you to Isla Fishburn and to Natalie Lagstrom for their advice and support. We now have a new strategy to work on and hopefully will see improvements soon.
Rubea is still in kennels, she has really turned a corner recently and is now working nicely with her handler and is a lot more responsive to training and receiving commands. We are still seeking a specialist home for her and still feel she will not be able to live in a ‘normal’ pet home environment. If anyone can offer this young lady the sanctuary and peace she needs then please, please get in touch. We are not able to keep her forever in kennels; it is neither financially possible nor fair to her. She deserves that chance of a rural life with little expectation put on her and where she can enjoy life at her pace.
DATES FOR YOUR DIARY:
SUNDAY 13th NOVEMBER at 10 AM – Claire has organised another pack walk at CARSINGTON LAKE. The walk is an 8 mile walk around the lake, but there are different options available, after about 45 mins there will be a stop off at a local pub for refreshments. People with young/elderly dogs who cannot manage the whole 8 miles can opt to carry on around the lake or go back at this point and return the way you came. Meeting point is the main visitor centre car park which is a pay and display car park. All monies raised from the walk will go to Wolfdog Rescue. Claire is now a pro at organising these walks so if you have any questions please contact Claire direct. Please note that at this pack walk there will be some dogs off lead.
