Podge 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: Podge was handed into a pound with her companions as her owner is suffering from a terminal illness. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Podge and her companions lives. Podge was thoroughly checked over by our vets on entry. Podge is microchipped. Podge has poor lung function and has an epileptic fit about every 3/4 weeks but need no medication. Podge has gained much needed weight and her fur has improved with a good quality diet.

Podge'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 Dx

Edited:

Podge travelled as my front passenger today around the M25 to our vets. I was concerned to see her general health and particular her laboured breathing. On examination our vet noted her poor condition and admitted her for chest Xray. Our Senior vet fedback to me that her lungs had lost a lot of their elasticity and he wanted to know had I witnessed her coughing. I said no coughing but very incapacitated and she was breathing through her cheeks. They have put her on antibiotics and cortisone and want to reexamine her next week. Podge 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 Podge and Bubber and they snuggled up in their kennel very happy to be together.

I fell in love with Podge today. She is a very subdued little girl but did come around with cuddles and treats. She walks beautifully and seemed well today and her breathing was fine. She is quite endearing as her tongue pokes out a bit love4.gif I used Podge to meet new walker, Nicki today for her induction and she couldn't have been an easier walk. I imagine this little girl would be a darling in any home, I wish it could be mine! She had cuddles with us after her walk and I am sure, once she settles in, that a lovely little character will emerge.

Podge is a lovely girl. She is very affectionate and today we had a cuddles & kisses session at the sunshine. It is very easy to walk and to harness. I was concentrate with her that I forgot to take pictures. I hope her new home is soon! She is amazing! :goodluck.gif:

I've fallen in love again and she likes cats, oh dear better not tell my husband!
The lovely Podge was my third and last walk of the day since by now I was soaked through. She gave me a super gentle welcome into her kennel and was immediately giving cuddles and kisses. Easy to harness and oh so gentle to walk. We wandered round the big field, nice and slowly as she was coughing a little from time to time, then went into the paddock for some off lead time. Podge had a little root in the bushes but really didn't want to leave my side so with the rain continuing to fall I decided to try for the third face wash of the day and retire to the walkers room for cuddles. She was up on the seat beside me as soon as I asked and then lay herself across my lap taking all the hugs I could give her. I got my third and gentlest face wash of the day from this sweet little girl who has so much love to give. It would be great to see her in a warm foster home but even better with a new family to call her own. bighug.gif

Beautiful inside and out. X
You'll never meet a sweeter, nicer natured dog than podge. She seemed slightly out of depth in the kennel environment - a sad air about her. We ambled along at a steady, slowish pace as her chest seemed to be playing her up a little. In the end I decided to just take her on the sofa in the rest room for cuddles and fuss. She loved this, sitting across my lap, rewarding me with the gentlest hand licks. She fell asleep for 10 minutes - only waking up when someone came in. I didn't want to put her back, I wanted to wrap her up and take her home......she totally stole my heart. Xx
