The vast majority of Pawprints dogs come to us from local authority pounds after they have served their statutory seven days and been unclaimed by their owners. However, every so often we help with cases referred by the local authority in special circumstances when owners are unable to care for their dogs.
We have just taken in some special case dogs in the form of Benji and Sally. Benji and Sally have come from a loving and comfortable home and have sadly been given up by their owner who has been admitted into hospice care and is unable to care for them now. This is a devastating thing for any dog owner to have to do, and we are committed to ensuring that Benji and Sally find somewhere to be as safe and as loved as they have been previously.
Although Sally and Benji have lived together for a while, Benji is still a lively guy and is proving to be a bit more than Sally can manage a lot of the time! Sally is 12 years old, her sight is failing and she’s going a bit deaf now so she wants to live a quiet life, perhaps snoozing on a warm rug by the fire and having a potter around with her person.
We have therefore decided to offer Benji and Sally for rehoming separately, and are appealing in particular on behalf of Sally.
Sally is currently spending time in the kennels grooming room where she has been ‘fostered’ by resident dog Minnie. We feel that a lady like Sally should have a warm, loving home in which to spend her retirement and are looking for a special person that can provide Sally with the perfect PERMANENT OR FOSTER home.
Could you be the ideal person for Sally? If you think that you can offer Sally a home where she can live the quiet life then please fill out an adoption form mentioning Sally and one of the team will contact you for a chat.
Benji is also up for rehoming and can be viewed on our Current Dogs page.
