Carina

This is Carina. We have known this little girl for sometime,she lived two roads away from where we live,owned by a nasty old man,that used to keep her on a chain that was bigger than her. She would walk around with the weight of the chain bringing down her head. Mino had many words with…

Lala

Skinny

In March 2014,Skinny was literally thrown out of a car at the end of our lane,he had been quite badly abused and had quite a few wounds on his little skinny body! We took him in,treated his wounds and had him neutered. He was barely a year old. He looks to be  a Miniature Pinscher…

Mino phoned our vet who suggested another cortisone injection, so at midnight he went out looking for…

This is Gyp. Gyp came to stay with us in August for two months in 2009, it’s now 2013 and he is still here. We took Gyp against my better judgement. I really had said “no more”! But we were promised that it would not be for long. Of course it goes without saying Gyp will be going nowhere now. He…

Puglia Pooches : caring for abandoned, sick and stray animals in Puglia

Ellen is a female with a lot of Dalmation in her. She is delightful. In May 2010 we found her and her sister/mother not far from where we live. They had made their home besides some wheelie bins on an old mattress. Mino would go and feed them daily, and as the  summer drew on …
