Hollymay 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: Hollymay was found stray/abandoned & unclaimed within a council pound. She is 6 years old and a long term leg injury which means she uses her back right leg as a semi prop. No further treatment required. Found with a chain and broken through lead which she released herself from. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Hollymay's life. Hollymay is now spayed, chipped and fully vaccinated, wormed and her skin has healed. Her back leg disability was reviewed by our senior vet and a specialist and is being left as is. Hollymay is currently in boarding kennels near Godstone

Hollymay is 6 years old. Poor love found stray before Christmas full of physical issues to check through & support her on. She is cheerful & soldiers on despite being unable to pass full weight through her back right leg. Hollymay is concerned around dogs so warns them off then carries on, loves people but not overtly licky or leapy. Needs her home to be inclusive and supportive; Hollymay has so much to offer. Hollywill! find her home

***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.

Hollymay's Thread below: Watch progress through our Rescue
Original Referral:Initial referral: Please can you squeeze another one in I'm very concerned for her. Hollymay, ?8 yr old staff female. She has infection in her eyes which is having drops for at the moment, a skin infection which she is having antibiotic for,she has various,sores and scars. One of her back legs has got a broken Achilles' tendon which according to vet has been like that for a while,she doesn't put any weight on it and permanently keeps it up, possible the cure would be amputation of leg. She copes very well on 3 legs so don't feel it would be a problem for her. dont feel her eye sight is 100%, she does see. She would be best an only dog as not greatly keen on other dogs. Think she has maybe been kept on a chain judging on what came in with her. She is a lively chatty lady considering she is mature and got lots of life in her, she is always smiling. X Cathy

So pleased Hollymay is with us and safe...she came out of her kennel quizziald this morning but happily jumped in the front seat of the dog mobile and explored then paws on the dash board like she was skateboarding in adventure. A few licks for me and few barks as innocent dogs just walking on the streets minding their own business...within 20 mins I knew her as a little character with a lot to say about life and very participative of it too.

A few protest barks when I parked and left her in the front: I knew enough about her that sitting in a vet surgery just wasn't going to be Hollymay's scene. I checked on her 30 mins in and she was resting and didn't notice me so just fine. Our dear vet had a very busy surgery so midtime I went and gave Hollymay a 20 mins walk around the streets (She gave me!) Little Miss Enthusiasm; we smell here, we smell there. We tried her in a quieter vet surgery but she was soon singing so we made our retreat then back in the dog mobile and not a peep.

Well Hollymay was lifted on the the vets table and Mark examined her and concluded...yes the achilles tendon had snapped at some point and this was a specialist vet operation but he knew the man and was sure Jamie would reduce his fee slightly knowing our goodly work. Mark would talk it through with Jamie but suspected he would attempt to repair with her leg held up and back, but more probably he will fuse her lower ankle (hock) joint allowing the leg to become a prop for her to support her walking. I mentioned that there had be the suggestion she would need to lose her leg, Mark's reply was not at all, but we are talking specialist op. Mark suspected she was not spay, though we open anyway. She has a mammary tumour that will be removed sametime as spay. Hollymay was 1st vax'd, she was a good girl!

She was given a bone on the return journey but wasn't interested, happy to enjoy the buzz of London traffic and all had entertainment value. We had a walk when we arrived near the kennel other than a couple of wee's no parcel but video shows how she walks, involves her leg and gets along just fine, she jumps in the dog mobile and prises her bone!

Terry was kind enough to walk to the station with me on Saturday, as part of his walk with Hollymay, so I got to meet her. She loved a fuss, chat and cuddle. When I went towards the station entrance, she woofed me back for another fuss; lovely.
Her smile is awesome!

Hollymay has come to join us in New Romney prior to her operation next Tuesday. She is a very friendly girl and has enjoyed investigating the garden trotting from one end to the other with enthusiasm.

She is not keen on the other residents here, but has calmed down a lot in the few hours she has been in her bedroom. I do hope the next few days will allow her to relax and then to spend time in recouperation without the additional stress of having to learn to cope with all these new neighbours at one and the same time.
