heidi came to me in march as a rescue and was in a terrible state. Handed into us due to food allergies but also showed she had mange and a yeast infection. We decided to cut her coat right down to sort her skin and start again. Treated her with malseb bath and advocate spot on. Diet that suits her is JWB Hypo-allergenic and she is doing fab now. Heidi also had a broken leg from previous home where the pin had never been removed. Due to that the pin had worked lose and as a result forced her bones to grow at angle. I had the pin removed and we decided as it doesnt bother her to leave the leg rather than reoperate on it to break it and reset it for cosmetic reasons. Heidi is a sweet little girl and loves everyone.. She is the bossof the dogs in the house lol. she is 2 and half years old.

heidi when she first came in:

Heidi Now


With our staffie


Teddy we have only had a week today! He is 21 weeks old and had 4 for homes already, passed pillar to post. God knows why as he is such a lovely puppy. he was handed as a gift to someone who contacted us as a rescue (another thats come in and staying lol).. Teddy was said not to ne house trained but he hasnt been indoors once here. He is very sweet, loving and playful. Still weary of strangers and barks at them but we are working on this. He had never been walked before and seems terrified at first. he is getting better and starting to enjoy his walks now.

Wow, Heidi looks so much better!! You did good work. She looks a little like my Marmalade. I wouldn't put her through a re-breaking either if it doesn't bother her. And Teddy is such a cutie. It amazes me that people don't take care of their dogs and let them get that bad and that they pass them around like they don't matter. Thank you for rescuing these two, most of mine are rescues, too.

Teddy is such a cutie. I must say you've done amazingly with Heidi. Seeing the pics of her now, you wouldn't imagine the state she was in when she came to you. They're so lucky to have found such a good owner and loving home :)

Thank you.. I find Heidi's past very sad. Her breeder sold her £150 and the woman that bought her thought bargain. Obviously at a low price like that there is something wrong.. Her new owner then really hadnt a clue or the money to help her. She said he vet did a skin scrape which showed nothing up (cant be a good vet) and she ended up locking her in a cage for almost a year as she didnt know what these allergies were. :( The second my vet aw her she confirmed what I thought that it was mange. Now the ladies vet should of known this.. She said she couldnt afford the skin tests anymore. All she needed treating for was mange and yeast which is very simple to treat.. Lots of love and TLC and a good changed diet.. She has only been with me 4 months and looks a different girl already. She is such a sweet girl and loves everybody she meets.

Teddy the poor lad, so sad. 4 homes at 4 months old, never socialised with anything :( He is doing great though and improving and I find that Tara helped heidi build confidence and now Heidi helps Teddy :)
