Moss Needs New Hips and We Need Your Help Please!

Just 5 years old, Moss is badly arthritic and suffering from hip dysplasia.  We’re desperately trying to raise the £12,000 needed for two new hips for him.  If you can help, please click the Donate button on our home page, or join in our fun auction:  https://www.facebook.com/events/1901383416615856/

Moss’ Story

Moss was a lucky boy when a couple saw a free ad for him and spotted that he looked in very poor condition.  Finding him very stiff on his back legs and covered in matted hair, they kindly decided to take him as they were worried, despite the owner’s adamant claim that ‘there was nothing wrong with him’.

£400 vet’s fees later, hip dysplasia was diagnosed.  He’s currently on Rymadil but ideally needs a double hip replacement, daily monitoring of meds with perhaps the addition of others.  The vet also suggested having the dog pts.  On the meds and now dematted, Moss has improved considerably, with the owners building his trust by gently grooming his very sensitive back end where the hair was so matted and just pulled out by the original owners.  The poor lad had always lived outside but quickly took to loving living indoors (he’s house-trained).

The rescuers cannot keep Moss and so we at The Spot have chosen to take him on and hopefully find him a loving, forever home once he’s got his new hips – which is where you come in.  Please do give – even if it’s a couple of quid – or join our auction.  If you’ve nothing to sell, there will be plenty to buy!  Thank you.  (And thank you to all of you who are already giving so generously in response to our plea for Moss.)

Penny

Penny

AN APPEAL FOR 10 YEAR OLD PENNY.  Penny’s been with us a while now after having been brought back after we found a home for her.  Her time there has shown us how hard it is going to be to find her a home. Penny has many difficult issues which, at her time of life, are not going to change. However, there must be someone out there who has a lovely big garden without cats or other animals. Penny has a wonderful temperament with all people and is fine with other dogs when out on lead. However she cannot live with another dog. Her whole life has been with one person and she has been dearly loved. We do not want Penny to spend the rest of her life in a kennel. Penny doesn’t travel well as she barks constantly and, if she were to travel in a vehicle she would need to be crated.  Please some one help her. Penny just wants a big garden and someone to love her for the rest of her life.

Lass

Lass is four years old and is a lovely, friendly girl. She will only be homed in a rural area as she would not cope in a town or estate. Jess will be a wonderful companion to some one living in quiet location.

Max Needs Your Help!

Latest Update:  Great news!  Max’s operation is booked for next Wednesday, 3rd October.  It’ll be a big day for my special boy. He has the most wonderful home awaiting him when recovered.

Sadly, dear Max will be not up for homing for a while as he has severe problems with his leg which are more worrying than we first thought. He has been to see our vet and it seems that this poor dog has been in considerable pain for a long time so we must do everything we can for him. Despite his obvious pain, he doesn’t make a fuss. He’s suffered so much in his 3 years in this world.

The vet does not feel that a shoulder replacement is an option due to the terrible state of his joint but we can get him out of pain for good by fusing it. This is still major surgery and he will need a special scan first. Hopefully Max will start on his journey to recovery as soon as possible to a better and pain-free life. This operation will be a massive undertaking for us here at The Spot but we believe that every dog deserves the chances that we are giving him.

We really don’t like begging but, as most of you know, his vet bills are not going to be cheap so if you would like to help this young lad all donations would be gratefully received. There is a Donate button on our home page.

Further updates will be posted as his progress to a pain free life begins.
