Just had an urgent request through from Victoria Stilwell. She's looking for any case studies of persistent escape artists with a view to filming them Monday or Tuesday 28th and 29th April. It's to do with a brilliant GPS tracking device called Zoombak.
If you have a hound who likes to be outward bound this could be just the thing for you.
If this sounds a possible call Emma Marshall 07875-399995 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Now please, I know this is a straight repeat from the last blog - but I really didn't want Penny and Freddie getting overlooked... so here they are again!
I'm afraid we have another Otis situation. Penny is now in very urgent need of moving, her seven days are almost up. Does anyone have any space in their rehoming kennel or does anyone have an home that would suit Penny?
Penny is not good with other dogs, but is great with people and loves children and is very loving. She will need to be walked on lead because of her temperament with other dogs. She is about five years old. She does not like being left for long periods of time and will complain for a short while, but settles soon afterwards.
Penny will need to be spayed, vaxed and chipped as a condition of rehoming. She is currently in Surrey.
If anyone is interested in helping the contact details are: 0797 356 9371 or email: Adrs@aol.com
I'm also going to mention Freddie again. I think his story has been overlooked.
He's had quite a few disappointments in the past, but he's ever the optimist - like most dogs.
He needs an urban home (away from sheep) and no cats. He gets on fine with other dogs - but best if they're not too small and cat like! Neutered, civilised apart from his sheep obsession. About 4 or 5 years old.
If you think you and Freddie could be made for each other, please call Anne on 01341 241238. He is in Wales at the moment - but he really could do with moving to somewhere else where sheep are less of a temptation, so please don't be put off by his current geography. Freddie should not be a difficult dog to home as he his affectionate and good in the car, but as he needs to relocate that is the tricky part of this particular rehoming.
Another factor is that Anne at Home-a-Dog is obviously poorly as she has terminal cancer. At her request we ran a successful appeal to find someone to take over her vital work with death row dogs a little while ago. The wonderful Demelda takes over Home-a-dog on May 1st, but I do think it would be a tremendous morale boost if Anne could see Freddie finally settled as he isn't enjoying kennels and would really thrive in a home. His previous attempts at happiness have all come to nothing - through no fault of his own.
So does anyone have an urban fireside with a little empty space next to it? Anne thinks Freddie could even suit someone living in a flat.
Please post this one far and wide. Let's put a smile on Anne's face and find Freddie his dream home.
