  1. HELP NEEDED WITH SCARED RESCUE

    ;Rex has joined us permanently at the Dame Perignon Memorial Home for Retired Working Dogs. He is an absolute sweetheart and has had no problems in adjusting from being a worker to being an inside dog. He gets on well with Gypsy and has gone from sleeping outside to sleeping on my bed in less than a week. I knew when I took her that Bella would not be around long and I was lucky to have nearly two years with her - she was beginning to suffer so it was time to let her go with no regrrets.

    An update - We lost Bella - she was old and her dementia became too much for her. Now my lovely Gypsy has a brother - Rex - from Australian Koolie Rescue. Rex was a worker but his farmer became too sick to keep his farm. He is about 11 and is an absolute darling - very soft and cuddly.
  3. Just appalling - those alpacas did a lot of good work.
  4. Help with breeds please

    I'd suggest a Koolie - not a puppy - Australian Koolie Rescue can be contacted through me or Facebook and have a range of nice dogs of varying ages.

    Gypsy is now well and truly settled. I get cuddled frequently, especially first thing in the morning when she rushes to beat Bella to be the first to give me a kiss. Thank you allso much for all your help, encouragement and suggestions.

    We did not get the foster because he got a new home which is good for him but I do think it would be good for Gypsy to have some livelier company. Might look into taking another one.

    Thank you

    Looks like we may be getting a short term foster Koolie next Monday - should be interesting.

    Progress continues - she has gone to two separate visitors for pats this week and is beginning to be a bit naughty.

    You ,may be right. She liked Phil the dog washer and made friends with a new supermarket delivery man.
  11. HELP NEEDED WITH SCARED RESCUE

    I don't know - she is the first of mine to do it but obviously thinks it is very important. Gypsy has had her first bath - she hated the water but did not mind being dried. She is now two shades lighter, soft and shiny and smells nicely of Kennel No. 5.

    This is Gypsy every morning

    I cannot handle both of them at the same time.
  14. HELP NEEDED WITH SCARED RESCUE

    Both dogs are well settled together now. Gypsy still does not want to leave the house and garden - I have somebody lined up to walk her but she refuses to leave the house. Yesterday I took Bella for her vet check up and vaccinations and Gypsy was really surprised and happy when I brought her back again/ Next time I go somewhere in the car I will have another go at taking her for a drive with me.

    There is a bonus - she is a good watch dog and lets me know when anyone is coming.
