Aimee (Saving Romanian Strays, fostered Scotland)

Adorable Aimee is feeling like a puppy, running around and smiling, now that she’s feeling better and enjoying life in the U.K. She’s clean in the house, great with the dogs and even loves the cats! Life could only get better in her own forever home.

Rose (Pawprints To Freedom, fostered Lanarkshire)

Rose is an affectionate lady who gets on well with other dogs and everyone she meets. She’s good on the lead and at home, either following you around when you’re in or sleeping when you’re out. Her story is pretty amazing and a testament to the strength of her love…

Nancy (Boxers & Bully Saviours, Durham)

Darling Nancy is a loving old girl who still likes a walk and a play, despite her back legs being less springy these days. She wants to be the only pet at home and, for peaceful nap times, she’d like an adult only retirement home. Could you love her?

Nancy (Saving Romanian Strays, fostered Scotland)

Dear Nancy is a bit of a snuggle monster on the quiet and loves human company. She’s looking for a quiet retirement home with maybe retired people who have time to give her lots of love. She is living with other dogs and gets on fine with them. She’s a very sweet, calm lady.

Simon (Saving Romanian Strays, fostered Scotland)

Cuddly Simon is very friendly indeed and has not been hardened by years in a Romanian shelter. He just loves cuddles and would be so happy to have a cosy home of his own where he will love you forever. Simon can live with other dogs and is an absolute sweetheart.

Max (Dogs Trust West Calder, Scotland)

3/12/15 – Sad news today from Dogs Trust: ‘Sorry to bring you the sad news that Max our 11 year old Kelpie crossbreed has passed away. He was with his favourite carer, our Assistant Manager Kerrie. He had an illness but left in true fashion of avoiding a vet visit and had a morning walk and play with his best friend Biscuit. We are all devastated about this.’ Sleep well, old boy.

Frankie (Dogs Trust West Calder, Scotland)

21/11/14 – We have had sad news from Dogs Trust today. Frankie sadly passed away yesterday. She had been unwell within recent weeks and it was found that she had a large mass in abdomen and there was nothing else that could have been done.

Sophie (Dogs Trust, Glasgow)

27/9/13 – Sad news from Dogs Trust Glasgow – ‘Sophie has sadly passed away. Her back end deteriorated badly and she had to be put to sleep as she couldn’t walk but her favourite carer and favourite volunteer cuddled her and comforted her and said their goodbyes. It was very peaceful and dignified, as she deserved.’ Run free, Sophie.

Jess Springer – Loving and cuddly (Oldies Club, fostered Dundee)

20/1/12 Tragically, after a number of weeks in her foster home with no sign of having fits, Jess has tonight suffered a massive fit. The vet managed to bring her round briefly but she started fitting again and the only option was to let her be at peace. We’re so sorry for Jess and for her lovely foster family who have taken such good care of Jess and are now devasted. :(

Rambo (Blue Cross, Scotland – fostered Ayrshire)

3/9/2011 – We just had the sad news that Rambo was pts. Here is what his carer said about him:

Sadly Rambo died yesterday but he had a brilliant foster home and was a happy dog right up to the end. We’re going to miss his great character and how much he made us all laugh but I’m glad he got to spend his last months so contented.

Sleep tight, sweet boy.

Gypsy (Dogs Trust, West Calder)

28/7/2011 A sad update from Dogs Trust … Our poor wee Gypsy passed away in her sleep last week and the vet explained that it was natural causes and old age. She is very sadly missed by staff and volunteers alike, but was a happy, cheeky little girl right to the end and had adapted well to living here and being waited on by her carers. Sleep tight little one :(

Cleo (Dogs Trust, West Calder, Scotland)

11/4/11 – We just heard the sad news that Cleo has passed away. Here is what her carer at Dogs Trust had to say about her:

Sadly poor Cleo was put to sleep away on Monday the 4th April. It was a shock to us all, as she only became ill on Sunday. Thankfully she had a very short illness, but investigative surgery showed she had liver and spleen tumours. Allowing her to pass with dignity and comfort was the only option.

Although she spent a long time with us looking for a forever home, she was very comfortable and thoroughly loved here – this was her home. Dogs Trust was the only place she had ever found where she was able to be herself – a free spirit! She is terribly missed not only by the staff but also be her young kennel mate, Zippy.

Tye (Dogs Trust, West Calder, Scotland)

6/12/09 Such sad news from Dogs Trust today – It is with great sadness that I write to tell you that poor Tye has passed away. He spent several weeks under the care of our local vet hospital for specialist treatment and while he seemed to be improving he sadly deteriorated overnight and passed away this morning.
