Bubba needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Bubba was handed into to a pound due to his owner suffering from a terminal illness. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Bubba and his companions lives.Bubba had a course of antibiotics when in the pound for his skin. Bubber was already neutered and chipped, Bubba was thoroughly checked on entry to our Rescue by our vet. He has at some point received burns to both eye surrounds and on his side: This is fully healed and may have been there many years. The burns do not cause him any irritation. Bubber had a dental with removal of one tooth. Bubba has started vaccinations. Bubber is now in boarding kennels sharing with Podge his longterm companion in Godstone

***PLEASE HELP: We have to ask for suggested min. donation £175 at the time of adoption, to support so many dogs in kennels. We have no state sponsorship and exist on the goodwill of the public and our supporters. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life.

Bubba's Thread below: Watch progress through our Rescue
Original Referral: Hi, I recently spoke to you about the 3 dogs currently being neglected due to the owner having terminal cancer.

I spoke to the Dog Warden and sent her over the attached pictures and brief description of them.

Hopefully she will be picking the dogs up Monday and I will have confirmation of this as soon as she receives my email.

All three dogs are in need of being seen by a vet, especially the mum and the older boy but temperament wise they are all lovely, sweet natured dogs.

I hope this is all ok? Kind Regards

• Bubba is a 12 Year old Staffie Cross Collie.
• He is Microchipped, Unsure on neutered status and he is unvaccinated.
• He has severely irritated eyes and scarring on his rear end which were apparently caused through an old burn wound.
• He is good with cats, other dogs and children of all ages.
• He is not food aggressive.
• He has a very soft and calm temperament.

Poor Bubba. Let's hope that we can ease his medical problems to make him feel more comfortable. Fingers crossed that we can find a forever home or foster home ASAP so that he doesn't have to face kennel life. bighug.gif xx

Bubba travelled in the dog mobile today around the M25 to our vets. Bubba is already neutered but needed a dental and claws clipped & was thoroughly examed. His fur needs attention via good quality diet and a bath and care. Bubba loved meeting up with her 2 companions in the dog mobile and shared about 30 minutes together in the paddock. I fed the food left out for Bubba and Podge; they snuggled up in their kennel very happy to be together.

Oh my goodness, in the past Bubba and his solemates obviously had love and care becos of their neutering and chipping. But then this has collapsed. Poor loves. Rescue at its best now as medical and attention to their needs now paramount.

I walked this gorgeous boy today. I have to be honest, and say I was expecting a sad, withdrawn dog. Quite the opposite, for a dog who is very poor condition, he was happy, bouncy and thoroughly enjoyed his walk with his sister, Podge love4.gif

Please don't be put off by his age, he has plenty of energy (probably the collie in him) and hard to believe that he is actually 12 years old.

The fantastic kennel staff are nurturing him and he is doing really well, but he'd love to have a home to call his own.

I took Bubba out for Nicki's induction today. He was a bit nervous at first, but who can blame him, coming into rescue at his age. He pulled a little at first on the walk, but is a really good boy. He didn't mind the horses we passed and was an easy walk. He likes to make contact during his walk and kept touching my hand with his nose every now and then. Shame, poor boy is not sure what's happening to him and I hope he settles into a home soon. He is very friendly and nerves calmed away from kennels. Never guessed he is 12 years old! Here is is with Nicki.
Teresa, passionate about our beloved dogs.
