Lovable Benji has been without a home for seven years and has been repeatedly turned down by families

Meet Britain’s most unwanted dog – the Patterdale Terrier who can’t find a home because he has diabetes.

Lovable Benji, ten, has been without a home for seven years and has been repeatedly turned down by families because he needs an insulin injection every 12 hours.

But staff at the Easterleigh Animal Sanctuary where he’s been since 2008 believe the adorable pooch deserves a happy home to enjoy his old age.

Mandy Leigh, chairwoman for the charity in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire said: “He’s such an adorable little scruff.

“He loves attention and sits at the front of the sanctuary and says hello to everyone who comes in.

“But when people find out he’s diabetic they just don’t want to know.

“I just don’t want him to pass away without ever having a real family.” ….[Read the full article]

Delphine has a new home!

A blind dog who was found tied to a pallet of bricks and left to die before being taken in by a West Malling rescue centre has found a new home.

The plight of Delphine the springer spaniel sickened animal lovers earlier this year after being dumped in a remote lane in Maidstone.

She was left with ear infections and cataracts in both eyes which left her virtually blind and taken into RSPCA Leybourne in West Malling.

Delphine did not take to life in the kennels but has apparently found her wag again after a couple, John and Anne Hopkins decided to take her home. Continue reading

The dog was discovered by an animal control officer who found her on a bench, alone and frightened, in Santa Maria.

I’m afraid this story passed me by, because it happened just after Milo passed away.

….Here’s some great news about Percy the dog who had dye rubbed into his eyes.

Percy was left partially blind after suffering abuse, but now he has a new home and a new family to take care of him.

Percy was left partially blind after suffering abuse, but now he has a new home and a new family to take care of him.

Percy was just a six month old puppy when he was subject to extreme abuse.

In February, the border-collie-jack-russell cross was surrendered to Manitoba Underdogs after a previous owner had rubbed hair dye into his eyes.

The shelter said it had an overwhelming amount of prospective adopters. In the end, one of Percy’s foster families decided to make him a permanent member.

“He is a very high energy dog, who was looking for a job. I like to do scent detection and work like that with dogs and he’s a prime candidate. And also, he just really fit into the family, so why move him again,” said his new owner, Jessica Thompson.

The plight of springer spaniel Delphine, abandoned in Maidstone in May, touched the hearts of hundreds who rallied round to raise the £2,500 needed for the surgery.

But the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket could not save the dog’s vision after specialists discovered the sight loss had been caused by an underlying condition, although a cataract was removed successfully.

Christine Dooley, of Leybourne RSPCA, said: “We have taught her to respond to voice commands to help her find her way around without bumping into things and her new owners will need to carry on with that training. [Read the full article…..]

German Shepherd recovers from starvation, ready for adoption at Visalia Animal Care Center.

Leo was dropped off at the Valley Oak SPCA at the end of March by a good Samaritan. This German Shepherd mix only weighed 25 pounds. Now, at 70 pounds, he's available for adoption by a special person. He has diabetes and requires an injection of insulin twice a day. (Photo: Submitted)

When Leo was dropped off at the Valley Oak SPCA by a Good Samaritan at the end of March, he was just skin and bones.

This full-grown German shepherd weighed only 25 pounds and had trouble standing up, said Lydia House, shelter manager.

“He was the most emaciated I’ve ever seen a dog before,” she said.

She took him to the vet and fostered him at her home along with two other dogs, a mother cat with kittens, teenagers and small children.

Even though he had suffered so much, he never turned on her or anyone else that she knows of.

“His love for everyone is infectious,” she said. “That’s what got me the first day I saw him.”

His story moves her, she said, because of what he went through and he still has love in his heart.

After about a week and a half, she noticed he drank a lot of water and urinated often. She took him to Companion Animal to check his blood sugar level. Turns out he has diabetes.

It took a while to adjust his insulin to the right level but now that he weighs 70 pounds, he’s ready to be adopted, she said.

He gets 12 units of insulin twice a day using a needle and syringe subcutaneously with breakfast and lunch. Good quality dog food is recommended without a lot of filler ingredients and corn. [Read the full article….]

3.11.15 - Blind Husky Needs Home with Guide Brother1When sled dog Gonzo began losing his vision years ago, Poncho helped guide him so he could continue giving the sled rides he so enjoyed.  But he had to stop running when he went completely blind, and now they need a home so they can stay together.

Gonzo’s degenerative condition was noticed by Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel staff members when he was about three years old.  He had to have one eye removed, making it difficult to see the trail.  Poncho nudged him along so he could stay in the hitch. Continue reading

A blind corgi terrier in Quadring Eaudyke has become a super hero of the canine world after being fitted with a “halo”, which it is hoped will help him find a new owner.
