Wonderful Wonky   

Meet Wonky, he came came to us a few years ago through Save The Death Camp dogs. This was him in Romania, he literally is wonky all over having been run over and needs a very special house with non slip flooring inside and out. He lives with his 2 friends Mondo, who is allergic to UV and Dandy who also has a disabled leg. They currently live in the house and need a new pad so that they can all access an outside area that is shaded with UV Screens for mondo.

Delightful Daisy   

Meet Daisy, our gorgeous EBT who has been with us a little while now. She too will be moving to the new area and needs a specifically designed and gated house due to her unpredictability. She loves life and is the cheekiest of dogs you will ever meet.

Totally Gorgeous Tilica  

Meet Tilica who came to us from Daisy's Legacy, needing a forever home as a domestic environment was not suiting him. He lives with his best friend Lisa who is also human scared and they brave the world together as a pair.

Dishy Dumagaz  

Meet Dumagaz, he is blind and lives with his guide Ebony an OAP girl. They too face the world together and live very quietly, enjoying the summer sun and tucked up in their den in the winter.
