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
Please welcome the very handsome Hobson to Team Poundie! He has been pulled from the pound after we were contacted asking for help as he was left as an unclaimed stray. Hobson needs a vet check and full assessment before being available for adoption. We love the golden oldies at TP

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
