The following photo gallery tells the individual stories of some of the dogs we have rescued..
Our first Rescue in late 1989. We named him "Laddie" and we found him a loving home with a family in Cranbourne.
In July of 1993 they contacted us to say that as their circumstances had changed they were unable to keep him but they had friends also in Cranbourne who were very eager to have him. He settled in very well with them.
Owners rang Eltham Council to say they no longer wanted the dog as the children had lost interest in him He was a 3 year old M/N - apparently
not good with young children he did not know.
It was discovered by a vet check that he virtually had tunnel vision only and therefore had to be approached from the front so that he could see you coming.
He was re-homed in November 1990 and is still with this owner today - a much loved pet. He is groomed professionally every 8 weeks. His eyesight is now very poor and he is on heart tablets - but still very much loved and very happy.
Del (Delphinium - Because she was Blue) was found in North Sunshine and had been seen wandering around St. Albans for a few weeks before.
Del came into our hands in March 1991
She had a delightful outgoing nature and was placed with a new owner in April 1991
She settled in well and was very good with children.
This little fellow was found by a lady who had seen what she
thought was a piece of white material laying in a park at the back of her house in 1991. After two days she went to investigate as she thought she had seen it move.
"Nelson" was about 8 months old, had only one eye and was almost totally deaf. When he was turned over to us we had little hope of being able to place him. However, we found a lady who had a sheltie already and was keen to give it a try.
He settled in with them and the other sheltie became his eyes and ears and whenever the owner called them, she would shepherd him from wherever they were in the yard and lead him to the lady.
"Xena" is a 6 year old female spayed sheltie (immunised/micro-chipped & house trained)
She has a lovely nature with people including children, but does not get on with other dogs as she belonged to an elderly couple and did not have to share their affection with other pets. Sadly the
lady passed away and the man has now gone into a nursing home.
Davey" was found wandering at Royal Park by a lady who lived in Davidson Street, Hence his name.
He was a good looking friendly outgoing male aged approx 3-4 years old. His new owners were very happy with him
"Dominoe" was found wandering in Seaford - a very neglected sheltie with a piece of barbed wire caught up in his petticoats which was cutting into his back legs.
After his brush he looked a picture. He was
placed with new owners in May 1990.
Unfortunately his new owners lost him with a large growth in mid 1994 and were very upset to loose him as he had been a delightful dog to live with.
"Candice" is a 6 year old female spayed sheltie
(immunised & micro-chipped)
This special girl is a sweetie. Her special needs havebeen met & she is in her special forever home....
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR OFFERS OF HELP
"Candice" is now well loved :-)
"Ky" was a 4 1/2 year old Blue Merle surrendered to us by the owner because he had Nasal Dermatitis which meant he had lost some of the pigmentation from the top of his nose. Her husband was not prepared to spend money in having the nose tattooed.
We treated him before the surgery to have the job done and it turned out quite well. This was a case of finding a particular type of owner for "Ky" who would be prepared to keep him inside and out of all strong sunlight. Luckily just the right people who had unfortunately just had to have their sheltie put down with tumours of the lung came to see him and fell in love with his gentle nature. They are absolutely thrilled with him and he is happy to sleep beside their bed each night. They take him for walks early in
the morning and after sunset.
