This coming month we are trying to spread the word about the dangers of pets and fireworks, we have added a ‘Firework Safety’ page to our website www.wolfdogrescue.co.uk/fireworks/ where you can find lots of information. We have also added items to help your dogs to the WdR raffle group. Please give our fireworks poster a share and help us spread the word and keep as many pets safe as possible.
We have got to start this update with the news we have all been waiting to hear for so long…..SHOBA has been adopted, he has finally found his forever home with John and Anna and we seriously couldn’t be happier for Shoba. After all the failed attempts to match Shoba to the right family we were seriously thinking at one point it was never going to happen, we would take him to meet an applicant and he would instantly turn into a different dog, we are convinced he knew what was happening. So along came John and Anna, and again he wasn’t the best behaved dog on the meet, becoming dog reactive again and pushing the boundaries, but John and Anna were able to see through this bravado and still wanted to give him a chance. Shoba has been on a trial run for the last five weeks and has now been officially adopted. He has adapted and settled in really well and is loving his walks and new adventures. We need to say a huge thank you to Francesca his foster mum who worked so hard with him so he can now go on and enjoy his life with his new family.
Akela has also been adopted this month. I’m sure you all know her very sad story and how she was in Qatar where the temperatures were far too much for her and she couldn’t even walk on the sand without it burning her pads!! Well we agreed to take her and she has been in foster, loving walks in the long grass, swims in the river and everything that we take for granted when out on walks. A huge thank you to Ewan who has done wonders with her training and socialising. We are so happy that she will be able to continue her adventures and training with Adrian, Nikki and Loki. Thank you so much.
This month we have welcomed Codek to the WdR family, Codek is a two year old male wolfdog and is now in foster. A huge thank to you to Alison for doing the 1st leg of the transport run and another huge thank you to Kevin and Karen for doing the 2nd leg and helping with the initial introductions to the fosters dog, Storm. Please see his separate post for more details and all donations towards his vet fees will be greatly appreciated. A HUGE THANK YOU to his lovely foster family, updates to follow.
Khalida is still in foster and is doing really well, we are delighted with her progress, she is now reserved as Jayne has become a failed foster, it seems this girlie has stolen Jayne’s heart. No surprises there lol. She will be spayed as soon as possible and continue with her socialising and training.
The lovely Ayasha, who is now known as Skyla, has been spayed this month and has recovered really well and is now ready to go off to her forever home in the next few days.
Rubea is still in kennels and we are looking at a special placement for her, she really needs a sanctuary space rather than a pet home, so we are looking into this and will hopefully find her a space soon.
The lovely Hunter is waiting to come in and needs a foster placement, please see his separate post and give him a share, we want this boy in asap. Thank you
DATES FOR YOUR DIARY:
NOT LONG NOW UNTIL our annual Devon Pack Walk. SUNDAY 23rd OCTOBER. We will be meeting at Crow Point Car Park just before 11am to begin the walk at 11. ALL dogs to be kept on lead at ALL times, there will be a mix of dogs with different needs and we will not allow any dog to become stressed or in danger from off lead dogs running around. There is limited cottage accommodation available at Country Ways at a reduced rate and there is also basic camping for tents, campers and caravans available for £5 per night. Please contact Anna to book accommodation in advance. After the walk there will be cream teas available in the barn and an opportunity to purchase Wolfdog Rescue merchandise.
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.
NOVEMBER: We will be holding an online auction, we are hoping to make this the biggest and best auction so far and have already got some great items but we will need more items to make it the best auction so far, so please get looking in those cupboards and see what you have that you no longer use/need and let’s make this a good one. Items do not have to be dog related, just good quality items. Thank you
