Sponsorships

Most animals come to us with “excess baggage” problems and experiences that they need to put behind them. With plenty of “TLC” we are usually, in most cases, able to achieve this aim and in the fullness of time when the right opportunity arises, re-home.

Rocky's Story | Part 7

Rocky, the elderly yorkie, is still a cheeky old boy, very full of himself and ruling the roost in the house, selecting the best beds, cushions and baskets; my daxi boys never argue with him!

Rocky's Story | Part 6

Yorkshire Terrier Rocky is the elder statesman of my family. He has had a few health problems in the past few months and at one point was tested for Cushing’s syndrome which proved negative. His very large appetite was eventually put down to him simply liking his food and lots of it, in spite of having no teeth!

Rocky loves his walks always on lead as he is becoming increasingly deaf and will wander off. On...
