Been a very busy but constructive week up at The Rescue Place, as two of our boys move on to pastures new, one being it just temporarily.
Sonny came to us a very manic, stressed and clearly upset German Shepherd. The vet rang me to see if I could help as he was due to be destroyed for biting his owner the following day. I don't think its fair to disclose personal details, but Sonny hadn't been getting the attention he deserved and one thing lead to another.
He has responded well to socialisation in his time with us, and become quite a loving and playful dog. A little research resulted in his breeder wishing to give him a home again. Sonny is neutered so there was no motive other than feeling it was her responsibility to give him a home (well done Lynne), and of course the fact she fell in love with him as soon as she saw him. We have provided a rescue fall back if things don't work out, but Sonny deserves a home. We have served our purpose, saved his life, and given him space and time to be a dog again. Enjoy the outside world handsome.
Wilf was the next big boy to move out, although his is just for a couple of weeks. Ameri has kindly offered to give him a home whilst he completes his baths and gets neutered. Of course it also gives us a good insight into how he will handle things with the view to a Forever Foster home. As you can see from the pictures, it hasn't taken him long to settle in.
