Please welcome our 3 newest poundies! They are coming to us from a local pound after they were found as strays over the festive period. They have all served their 7 days and been signed over to Team Poundie. So, let’s introduce everyone to … Pluto – a 1 year old Bully cross breed Tia – an “older lady” Jackapoo Vera – 4 year old female Lakeland Terrier All 3 will be coming to our kennels and getting a vet check and any treatment required (including neutering, vaccinations etc). As you can imagine taking on 3 dogs at once can be expensive, and we also need to take special care of Tia as she had a lump on her paw that needs to be investigated. All 3 will be assessed in due course and available for adoption in the coming weeks. If you have already sent us an application in the past and would like to register interest for any of our newbies please inbox us (as we may miss comments on here).
Hi Everyone! Minnie here! I thought I would come and say hello before I snooze in front of the fire after having my yummy dinner! My belly is full for the first time, it feels so good! The last couple of days has been a bit scary. This man and lady turned up where I lived, they gave some paper to the man in the house on wheels and they took me away. I was so scared I hid in the back of my box but the man dragged me out and the lady wrapped me up in a mans jumper, he was very warm! It was sort of nice but I didn’t know where I was going. They took me back to a house. It was nice and warm, I had a little sleep on the sofa and watched them carefully. I heard them talking about another lady. And a res-coo? A little while later another human turned up. She came with a red fluffy blanket that I quite liked. I went to sit with her and she wrapped me up in the blanket and took me outside. I was scared. I was really hoping she wasn’t going to take me back to the box. She put me in her car and another lady snuggled me and told me it was going to be ok? I really didn’t know if it was. A little bit later we got out the car. It was very dark. We arrived at another house and there was a smiley lady waiting for me. She was saying how tiny I was. The lady from the car put me on the floor in my blanket and I just didn’t know what to do. Eventually I got a little bit brave and went to say hello to this smiley lady. I was told she was my foster mum and she would look after me. The other ladies left me then. The first night I was a little bit scared. The smiley lady gave me a comfy bed and my red blanket and I hid and went to sleep. Its been a very sleepy two days, but I do feel better. I’ve been to the vets today. It was a little scary because people have always been mean to me but actually it was ok. The nice vet checked me all over. Some places tickled a bit. Other places made me feel a little bit nervous. Some places hurt. I haven’t had the best life you see. The vet said my heart is good and strong, I have some muscle wastage from being shut in tiny dark spaces and fur is missing on my elly-bows from having nothing comfy to sleep on. I have poorly ears too. Something called mites? They are really itchy and sore. The vet put some cold stuff in my ears which felt very strange but I feel a little bit better already. I was SO glad to see my foster mummy when it was all over, she has been taking the best care of me since I arrived the other night. For the first time I am having proper meals that fill my belly and I have the BEST fluffy bed in the house right next to the fire. There are other dogs here but these dogs are really kind to me. They sniff me and give me kisses. Theres also some cats here, they said hello then went off to do their cat business. Cats eh. I am so happy here, I get to sleep properly and I even snore! My foster mum gives me lots of belly rubs and we cuddle together a lot. I felt so tired when I arrived here, but now I am starting to feel better. We go for little walks outside so I can do my business, but sometimes I have little accidents in the house. I don’t mean to, but my foster mummy cleans it up and gives me kisses and cuddles and tells me its ok. I’m so grateful to the lady and man with the paper, and my foster mummy whos looking after me. I’ll send you updates when I can. At the moment I am enjoying snoozing and having as many cuddles as I can! My foster mummy said that you all helped to pay the lady back who saved me, so thank you all so much. Good Night Everyone, Minnie xxx

Bluela has arrived under Team Poundie today, a beautiful female 7 year old Alphalpha Blue Blood Bulldog who is suffering with a bad ear infection which has caused a Hematoma. As you can see she has been bred from and our first priority now is to clear her ear infection, operate on the Hematoma and arrange for her neuter. We don’t know much about Bluela yet, but under the wonderful care of Kathryn – she will be more understood of what home she needs.If you are able to help towards Bluela’s care our paypal is email@example.com Welcome to Team Poundie Bluela xx
Balto alerted us to a 3 year old male Cane Corso who had bitten and it is a nasty bite, but it is very out of character and there were circumstances.Vet has advised owner NOT to PTS but it is a neighbour that has been bitten so he couldn’t go home. Without a lifeline there would of been no choice.Balto couldn’t afford to take him alone, so we agreed to take Rocco to Ryan, where he could be assessed fully and ensure everyone’s safety was a priority.Because of the bite and need for hospital treatment, the police have been called and the owners were seriously worried about their other dog Nala and her 7 pups of which Rocco is the father of. Therefore Team Poundie and Balto have them all in their care now at Ryan’s, where their safety and that of everyone involved is of utmost priority. They will remain there for as long as is needed, while we discuss with the police going forward. the future plans for them all. They willnot be rehomed until everyone is in full agreement, that it is safe and all behavioural work required carried out.Everyone’s thoughts will no doubt focus on the breeding of pups, but please we beg you not to comment badly – this boy and his families lives have been turned upside down from one mistake and our priorty once we have liased with the police will be the neutering of both Rocco and Nala when it is the right time to do so.As you can imagine, this is going to be a huge drain on our resources but their lives had to be spared, so please if you can help in any way we would truly appreciate it.Thank you to Jayne Dendle ready with advice, to Ryan for taking the whole family at short notice and Balto for never backing away from an emergency situation.We will of course keep you all updated as things progress, but please pray for them all tonight xxOur paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org please mark as ROCCO

At 10am yesterday morning we got a call that a dog (we didn’t know what make or model at the time), was on route to the vets with a 10.30am appointment to be put to sleep. Quickly diverted, he headed off to our kennels where lovely Kathryn and her team are taking great care of him until we vet check and assess. Meet Ollie a 5 year old Cavapoo who has bitten. He is very scared right now and needs time to show us his true colours, before any decisions are made about what he needs and where his future lies As always we will do whatever it takes to make Ollie happy again.Thank you everyone, more babies safe because of you all.Please be good boys xx

Meet Millie and her sister Saffie
Two year old sisters Millie and Saffie came over to Team Poundie yesterday, sadly their dad is very poorly in hospital and could no longer look after them. He was so worried about them, he wouldn’t get the treatment he needed until he knew they were safe.
Thanks to Auntie Jacky for emergency fostering and collecting the girls for us, where they can have lots of fun and the Veterinary care required before becoming available for rehoming.
Welcome to Team Poundie little girls xx
We have been extremely busy helping dogs in all sorts of situations, here are a few updates on some of our intakes.
Tammy is being cared for in foster, she is coming out of her shell a little more each day with her new best friend.
Sam, came to us as his owner is extremely poorly and is going to live with a very lonely elderly gentleman where they can look after each other for the rest of their days.
Bella the elderly lady, who was for sale for £50 on gumtree will be moving over to Senior Staffie soon. She has been vet checked and started her vaccinations ready for the move.
Ten year old Faith arrived Sunday, along with her medication for arthritis. Mandi Kay alerted us to Faith and spoke with the owner to remove her from Gumtree, so she could be given the best chance of a home for life with the added security needed so she didn’t fall into the wrong hands. Thank you to John and Julie for helping with the transport.
We have some wonderful homes waiting for small dog friendly dogs, home checked and ready to go. Please contact us if we can help anyone with rehoming.
Thank you to everyone for your support, together we can make such a difference to the lives of these babies and their families x
