I got an email last night asking for help with 19 (yes 19!) traumatised and unsocialised collies. These dogs were working dogs, but more recently have spent their days locked in sheds. The photos I have seen are horrific, one has a chain collar embedded into its flesh, although I'm pleased to say it has undertaken an operation to have it removed. One sad thing that stands out is that none of these dogs even had names. These dogs are not for re-homing to the public for obvious reasons, but if any rescue out there has the right facilities etc please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can forward contact details.
There have been loads more fundraising events arranged over the last couple of days, so please keep an eye on the "events" page, it should be updated by tonight.
Talking of events, I am proud to accept the invitation from Hillheads Dog Club to make their fun day on July 11th a fundraising event in aid of SHAK. The day and shows run between 10am to 2pm, be great to see you all there. I'll post more details as I get them, but thanks to everyone at Hillheads Dog Club for such a wonderful offer.
Roxy was sheepish this morning, but after a lot of persuasion and even more treats, I managed to get her out for a walk. She shows signs of being a beautiful big girl, she just needs to learn to trust. She wants to trust, you can see that she would love to be friends, its just going to take time.
