And now here's Tarka the movie - no mascara required!
STOP PRESS: HOORAY! Tarka is found! A delighted Jemima phoned about an hour ago to say she was en route to get him. Thank you so much to everyone who helped by spreading the word or just thinking positive thoughts. His new home awaits and he can start his new life even if there was a 24 hour interruption!
This gorgeous purebred young black labrador boy landed in Dundalk pound in Ireland two weeks ago and should have arrived at Jemima Harrison's Black Retriever X rescue today. He was a very frightened boy, as you can see from the pix. In a very distressed state (just released from the end of a grab arm...) and nursing an obvious injury (unable to put down one of his hind legs) he went for the warden. He stopped short of contact but they still wanted to put him to sleep. Jemima stepped in at the last moment to save him and is delighted to be able to report that he is not aggressive - he was just terrified and in considerable pain.
Here's a link to his Dog Lost page.
He's very nervous and must not be approached by men.
