Meet Max, he is a 12 year old cocker and I have never felt matts like it on a dog, his ears are so heavy you can't imagine, he stinks so bad but we will fix him, can't touch his chest for matts, amazingly he is in excellent health
please phone 07568 580030
Saturday max will go to poochies grooming salon and come out a new man
UPDATE: Fabulous Ellie at Poochies of Bournemouth
came to our rescue immediately and spent her half day off today shaving Max.
We have a carrier bag full of his matted hair.
Ella used her skill to calm Max, who was getting very agitated
and shave all his hair off without so much as a little nick of his skin!
She is so lovely and devoted to helping these poor animals.
Max is now on the road to recovery thanks to Poochies of Bournemouth.
XXXXX (from Max of course!)
REHOMED THANKS TO POOCHIES
Here is raggles after all his heavy fur is removed.
A handsome boy with a loving nature gets on well with my two males
3/4 years old and neutered
Another successful grooming from the fabulous Poochies of Bournemouth
who came to aid straightaway.
Poor Ned was dumped as he had a poorly leg
but with the help of Natterjacks
we removed his leg and he went on to make full recovery
and go to an amazing home.
This is little Wilfred who was tied to Brenda's gate just before we left and he had a large lump on his ears and obviously they didn't want to treat it so we squeezed him in and Andy did the op on him today and saved most of his ear. Andy was awesome doing the op today so he can now recover and start his new life once recovered
This is Scooby and he came from a breeder this week but sadly he has epilepsy so he will be yet another cav on our vets bills for life there is about 7 cavs on meds for life people just don't realise that for a small donation we supply his meds for life which could run into £2-4000 plus all the other dogs on vet bills for life, these guys need us more than the pups they need us every month to pay for there meds. The blenham you can see is Arther who as came on great with babrbra who is now his mam he has turned into a happy boy came from a a hell hole and look at him now a fireside hugger
This is Boss the Boerbell he was giving to Helen in Somerset.
Have always had a fascination with the breed along with a healthy respect.
Boss is only 8 months old and in a bit
of a state as you can see but I am sure I can fix him with some good food,
TLC, wormers and love. He is deffo my Christmas project.
Boss is not a breed I will rehome lightly as he is an extremely powerful animal
so based on that he will only be rehomed with children
over 14 as when we get him fit he will be a tank with extreme power
Another victim of Christmas, although I kind of feel by looks of it I think our Teddy has had a lucky escape. He has clearly been tied up or left with a collar to tight which has cut into his neck, We are cleaning it up and treating it and Natterjacks have put him on some meds. Despite all this he has the most wonderful nature and is wonderful with other dogs and children and is just quite frankly really enjoying life and he is only 1-2 years
This is Ozzie around one to 2 years . He is a cruelty case as someone tried to dock his tail with a cable tie . He has had the op to take it out as it was embedded . He is so sweet and fine with the other 8 dogs in foster home . He is very loving and just needs a loving home . Please give him a chance he has had it rough time of it
OK this is Ozzie and some rather uneducated individual decided to dock him themselves as an adult. They tied a cable tie on tight and left it hoping tail would drop of, which it didn't just embedded in and caused him lots of pain then an operation to removed the bits that were embedded.
So this maybe opens up the docking debate. Having owned springers some docked some not I have spent a lot of time trying to stop my undocked springers tail bleeding where he would damage it as would rip tip of running in under growth. Or maybe should be at least done by a vet not an idiot .....................
Meet Taylor a beautiful kind Weimaraner who hasn't been treated as he should of been. He is in very poor condition infact had been starved. Taylor is now being loved and fed by us and he appreciates everything that is being done for him, we think he is only 1-2 ish. We have been in undated with dogs like Taylor that need that extra special care in the last week, as well as a cav with spinal injury's, a cav with severe heart murmur and a poor Jack Russell with a cable tie embedded in tail that's having operation today so if you can help with these extra special guys and help towards our massive vets bill we and the dogs would appreciate it, Natterjacks 01202 427404
BEFORE POOCHIES DID THEIR FINE LOVING WORK
AFTER POOCHIES DID THEIR FANTASTIC WORK ON THIS BOY
This is Arthur, a Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, approx 4 yrs old.
He came in in an horrendous state
and it was only the quick action by Poochies of Bournemouth
that has transformed him into a little sweetheart.
Poochies had their work cut out as Arthur
had lots of terrible matting and they had to use a scalpel
which they did so skilfully. He also has no tongue.
They are truly fantastic and professional groomers
who helped us at very short notice.
AN UPDATE ON ARTHUR NOW ARCHIE
Here is Arthur (now Archie) after having lots of care
from his forever mum Barbara Allbright.
Doesn't he look fabulous!
Well done Barbara for giving Arthur such a happy life
This is Ali and this is how she has been dumped, people are just scum. She is an older Cocker Spaniel who will be looking for the best retirement home we can find her. It never ceases to amaze me what scum we share this planet with. Brenda and Billy spent hours trying to make Ali more comfortable.
SHOWS WHAT A LITTLE TEAMWORK CAN DO THIS IS ALI NOW
Abraham had been with DDR and we made him all better, sorted out his lumps and open tumor on his throat.
He was an old boy but we thought he was worth every penny.
Then days after this pic was taken he died of a brain tumour suddenly which was just heart wrenching
On 27th November 2009. RIP poor old Abes.
A huge thank you to Christine Gillingham
For making his last days special ones - she is a special lady.
Abraham is a very memorable and epic DDR dog.
This is Hope. She has been fighting for her life with Brenda for a few weeks now and is slowly pulling through. She is emaciated and in an horrific condition; she is being nursed by the lovey Leanne and Ian and will need time to get over what she has been through, beautiful gentle little girl. Pictures added of little Hope now - it took 5 weeks of intensive care from Leanne, Ian and our vet to get this girl through xx
This is Molly - she is an ex breeder from a puppy farm.
She had many open wounds and pyometria and was in an awful state.
Our foster Mum Rona fixed her all up with our amazing vets and now Molly
is living the life she should have had - being spoilt.
Bailey came to us in a right sorry state; starved and a broken girl.
With the help from everyone, we saved this little girl from sure death.
She is now a happy go lucky girl enjoying her life.
We would like to thank everyone who helped us.
Bailey was another great fix from our foster Mum Christine
Thank you everyone from DDR.
This is Baily now
It brings tears to our eyes she is such a loving caring girl
After all she had went through
We took her and repaired her and gave her years of happy living
Once again thank you every one from DDR
This is Zeus who came to us from Ireland. He was starved to almost death.
Today, 16 March 2011, we lost him.
He died from fluid in his lungs drowning him
as well as a severe heart condition at 18 months.
Zeus was ill then dumped when he was of no more use to them.
This is what puppy farms are about and
anyone buying a puppy from these farms
is doing this to dogs. We look at puppies in shop windows
And say "ahhhh cute" but look at their mothers and fathers.
This is the life they live for us to say "aahh".
When we look in a pet shop window
please please don't buy from these people
We are just helping them to hurt the animals we love and adore.
This boy was sad - look into his eyes.
The people who buy puppies from puppy farms
have helped to put the look in his eyes.
We have to see the mother and father of our
puppies when we buy them - not buying them from mail order farms.
All of us at DDR are heartbroken that we lost this great boy.
Help us to help them, please. It's too late for Zeus 16 March 2011.
Rest in peace Zeus
From everyone at DDR
UPDATED PICTURE OF
AIN'T she a pretty picture
Shows what a little love can do
This breaks my heart to see
Such a little sweet little thing
Treated in this way
When you see the sadness in her eyes
It makes me weep for mankind's ignorance
This is Buddy
He came into us on the 7th Dec
If it wasn't for the love of Brenda at Inistioge Puppy Rescue
he would be dead.
She nursed this poor boy back to health.
She is a true angel.
She is an affectionate girl and would love to be running free.
This is Jack and he is a fantastic example of a Rottweiler.
He is 4-5 ish??. He can live with male or female dogs.
He has great recall and he loves to play ball.
He came in with quite a few lumps so they have been removed
whilst he was castrated and sent off for tests.
He was left on the roadside a month ago - he was collapsed
And so thin and weak he couldn't walk.
An older couple took him in and fed him for a few weeks
before handing over to the pound. He is still thin and needs building up.
He is amazing in every way - we can't fault him.
Sadly Jack died of Kidney Failure
in mid 2010 a few months after we all fixed him.
Violet is such an adorable little lady,
despite the severe mange and sores everywhere.
She has very long nails and cut pads on her feet.
So she can't walk on her back leg and is terribly underweight.
She is a very affectionate little girl.
At only about a year old she has clearly not had the best of lives.
Jen, her foster mum, is taking care of all her ailments
and building her back up
into a nice healthy proper Lurcher.
We will keep site updated with her pics as she gets better...
This is Lucy.
She came into us from Ireland
with the worst mange we have seen.
She had burns and the mites
just would not die, it was awful and she was yelping in pain
as she just couldn't reach all her itches.
When Lilly shaved her to the skin to give her some relief
the mites were running all
over her body. It was a long process getting Becky better
but Lilly Davies and Elizabeth Berger
did and she went off to her new home.
This is Sammy
who was found roaming round rural Ireland
in a right old state
He could barely walk as he was so malnourished.
He has no muscle in his body and his back legs keep caving in.
He weighed 10 kg and was one of the weakest dogs I have ever had.
We had to shave him as he smelled so bad
and was very greasy, he was the most beautiful natured dog in the world.
Sammy now he has found his perfect home here at DDR
With me Julie
He is now 17kg and looking amazing.
Sammy passed away on 21st January 2010
He will be missed by all of us at DDR.
This is the true gent that is Chester
He is a harrier.
I had never heard of this breed ever until Chester came.
What an amazing surprise he was.
He was a total gentleman, so full of charisma.
There was so much sadness being his old eyes.
He had so many scars on him where
he had been worked to death
then just thrown out. He was very thin.
We were told he had a severe heart murmur
but we wanted to give him some love and comfort before he died.
If Brenda and her huge ole heart did not take these guys in
then we would never get the chance to show them love and affection.
Chester died on the 15.11.10
We hope he has more fun and love in heaven
than the vile people who had him his whole life
ever showed him on earth
And I hope he enjoyed the love and care myself and Emma showed him.
This is is Lilly, she is approx 6-7 years old.
She has had a vile life and now she is a bit older and covered in tumours
she has been dumped tied to a tree.
This poor girl has mange and tumours on her which we will fix after
a week of good mange treatment,
good food and love to build her up a bit.
Her hair is so thin and she has awful big kennel sores
on her rear where she has lived on concrete floors
She came in on July 7th 2010.
Lilly is being looked after by
Tony and Alex Brett who are stars, love you Mr and Mrs Brett.
