"If you have received love from an animal in your life then you are very lucky. Give back a little to this fantastic charity and see what YOU can do to make a huge difference. Love, shelter, healthcare and food. What an amazing gift you can give. Do it today. Thank you so much."

Maisie is a permanent Sanctuary girl who came to us in April.

She came from an abusive background and needed us badly. She was such a scared girl, at first she slept a lot, tucked up and hidden away under her duvets.

Her main issue was her deep and heartbreaking fear of humans, it's difficult to imagine what you would need to put a dog through to leave them that afraid. We knew she needed a lot of love and kindness and that it would take time to diminish that fear and replace it with a little trust again.

After proper assessment, it was clear that Maisie's issues meant she needed to remain a Sanctuary girl and live with us permanently, she is partnered up with Sammy who is the same cross breed and they compliment eachother really well and she is coming on in leaps and bounds and she is getting braver, cheekier and trusting Joy and others more each day and is really starting to enjoy life again. Slowly does it and this babe will be just fine x
