BILBO our Star dog is so pleased to be sharing his bed with a new girlfriend at Animal Helpline, Wansford this week. Bilbo was one of our first dogs to be supported with our ‘Help 4 paws’ package and we smile when we remember how far he has come. He is a smashing little lad who so deserves a home and we are looking forward to that day when we see him nice and snug in a new home. Bilbo has only half an ear which is where in the Romanian public shelters they pull out the markers without any care for the dogs. It doesn’t bother Bilbo . When we first met Bilbo he was a frightened little soul although with time and patience he is starting to show what a great little dog he is. He loves the company of other dogs and once he knows you his little tail never stops wagging. He has a great little character and we at Dogs in Mind look forward to taking him out and about in the coming months to get him used to the big wide world. We will be sharing Bilbo’s story over the next few weeks. We have all 4 paws crossed that 2018 will be Bilbo’s year !
We have already got next years Animal Helpline Dog Show booked, please add it to your next years Diary. A great opportunity to meet AH dogs that have been re-homed and celebrate the life of AH Founder, Ros Norman.
Date for Next Years Diary:
14th July 2018 – Animal Helpline Fun Dog Show – The Haycock Hotel, Wansford
Our Team had a really good day at the Autumn Food and Country Fair and the Showground on Sunday. Dogs in Mind organised and judged the fun Dog Show as well as having a Tombola, raising funds for Beta’s Land in Romania. Animal Helpline also had a stall of allsorts of bargains, raising funds for the rescue dogs at AH.
The weather was excellent, better than we could have wished for really.
Bilbo arrived at Animal Helpline over a year ago with his brother Prince all the way from Romania. We chose to support this duo with our ‘Help 4 Paws’ package and after many months Bilbo is now ready for a loving, forever home.
It has been a journey for this sweetheart and as a Dogs in Mind team we have learned so much about rehabilitating nervous doggies, especially from Romania.
Bilbo has a little part of his ear missing which makes him super cute & is proving to be a fun loving chap. He enjoys the company of other dogs and often makes our Dogs in Mind team smile as we remember how he was when we first met him. It is a privilege to work with these dogs at Animal Helpline and gives out team the motivation to make this world a better place for these homeless dogs & support them with their demons.
Bilbo & Chris!
Bilbo & his brother Prince!
A BIG THANK YOU to Animal Helpline for caring & finding these dogs loving, forever homes.
Here at Dogs in Mind we love to support the doggies that arrive at Animal Helpline gates frightened of the outside world. Animal Helpline give their lodgers the love, care and a warm place to lay their head, although these Doggie Angels are often run ragged with the many daily duties required to keep the Rescue going.
This year we focused on 4 doggies named Prince, Bilbo, Charlotte & Carey who all needed some support to fight their demons. You will find information on our work under the Animal Helpline section . We are pleased to say that Prince & Carey have now found loving, forever homes and we are so looking forward to updates from their new owners.
Bilbo & Charlotte still wait for that call and we at Dogs in Mind will continue to support them.
Here’s a little video of Charlotte now with her friend Pharo. We smile as we watch how Charlotte is helping Pharo to overcome his fears and Pharo is showing Charlotte how to play. Once again we realise that our team Dogs in Mind may not change the world of homeless dogs but just maybe we will make a small difference to a few. Charlotte our STAR doggie.
A BIG THANK YOU to Animal Helpline for not only saving these beautiful souls but allowing us the privilege to work with them and be part of their journey.
