We are appealling for a very special home for our lovely Sky.
Sky is only around 3 yrs old, but has problems with her hips & hocks, which mean she will only be mobile for a few years. Her xrays show bone overgrowth and the vet has informed us there is no option for surgery.
So Sky needs a special home, who will exercise her regularly but not over do it. She would not be able to do hilly walks, or long hikes. She would benefit greatly from swimming, and the rescue will pay for 2 hydrotherapy sessions per month for her for life. Her weight needs to be kept low, and she would benefit from supplements such as Yumove, green lipped mussel, and glucosamine & chondroitin.
Sky is a happy girl, who rarely needs pain relief, but will need it more as time goes on. Worst case scenario in approx 2yrs time , she wont be able to hold her back end up. Best case scenario she will potter around for a couple of years and hopefully reach 7 or 8 yrs old. We simply dont know.
Sky has so much love to give. She adores children. She is great with cats. She is fine with other dogs. She is housetrained, travels well, and really enjoys the walks she does. Her recall is good.
Please can somebody open their hearts to this lovely girl, and cherish her for the rest of her days?

This handsome boy was found as a stray and is now in our care. He is a stunning boy of around 6yrs old.
Storm is just a really pleasant dog, who is clean in his kennel , so most likely housetrained. He has probably been a much loved pet at some point in his life, as he has lovely manners.
He is good on the lead, no pulling, and his recall hasnt been tested yet.
He is fine with other dogs, and shows no interest in livestock on walks. Not known how he is with cats.
Storm needs a new home to love him as much as he will love them. He loves nothing more than pottering around with his human, and leaning in now and then for the odd cuddle!
Fabulous dog waiting patiently in kennels in Preston, Lancashire.

This beautiful lady is 4 yr old Roxy, who came into rescue after her owners couldnt keep her any longer due to long working hours. They put Roxy on an advert free to good home, but thankfully agreed to let a rescue help.
Roxy is not spayed, vaccinations are out of date, but thankfully she is microchipped!
Roxy is clean in the house, travels well, and is ok to be left for a few hours without chewing or messing. She was regularly left very long hours in her previous home. Roxy has been crate trained also, and will happily use one as her bed.
Roxy is not good with children, as she was tormented by local children throwing sticks and stones at her in the garden in her previous home.
Roxy is fine with other dogs with calm introductions, as long as the dog is not too much in her face. She likes playing with another young bitch called Shadow, at the kennels.
Roxy is not keen on cats.
Roxy has real trust issues, and when she first meets strangers she can appear aggressive. However, once she knows you, and trusts you, she gives you her whole heart & soul, and will do anything you ask. She adores playing ball, loves a rough and tumble hug with you . She just needs to get over the initial meeting and she is fine.
Roxy pulls a little on the lead at first, & likes to meet other dogs on walks so will pull you towards them, but otherwise she is fine on the lead.
With the right calm, confident owner Roxy will blossom, she has so much love to give the right person, but you have to earn her trust first.

Nelson is a stunning 2 yr old boy who finds himself in rescue as he didnt settle well with a busy household of children and other dogs. He has since been in foster care and here is what foster family have to say about the lovely Nelson. Nelson is in Norwich, Norfolk.
He's a very loving dog who loves his cuddles and human companionship and needs a lot of fuss. He wouldn't want to be left on his own too long or too many times.you can be sitting on the sofa and he comes and jumps up for a cuddle :)
We think he would be better suited to a 1 dog family, because he does loves dogs but due to his blindness we feel he needs a calmer household.
We been feeding him raw and his scratching has stopped.
He walks well on the lead on his own but when out with the others he does pull because he wants to be near them and his recall is excellent.
Enjoys being out in the garden and if anyone turns up he barks to let you know but there's not 1 bit of aggression in him.
He enjoys running around with our dogs but because of his sight can be a bit clumsy and some people see it a different way.
It took about 10 days but now he's not bothered by our cats but to start with was a little curious.
You actually forget he's blind and it doesn't seem to restrict him in anyway,when out with our dogs in the paddock he runs around and sometimes forgets his bearings and yesterday walked straight head on into a tree, that's why we think he be better suited to a smaller group, not so full on like ours and maybe home and garden where it's easier. For him to remember where things are :(
Travels well in car, good with vets likes his toys and he's clean in the house.
We will foster him for as long as it takes to get him the right home because he is a cracking dog and full of character :)
He's had his implant put in nearly 2 weeks ago which lasts 6 months and has calmed him a little but it takes 3-4 weeks to have the full affect.
Male - 2 years old - in Norwich.
