South Lincolnshire's Jerry Green Dog Rescue had shared one of its many success stories
Gypsy (previously known as Joy) was as friendly and puppy-like as they come – despite being two-years-old!
She was found as a lonely strayso our team took her in and made it their mission to find her the perfect home.
Gypsy coped well in kennels and was a happy girl.
After a full health check our vets found that she had a pretty severe ear infection. So we began treatment and she was soon on the mend.
Once healed, Gypsy was ready for adoption. It didn’t take long for a fantastic family to come along and after some successful Meet&Match® visits and a foster-to-adopt period – Gypsy found the forever home she deserved.
Since her adoption, she has been living life to the full. Her new family say: “We are so happy that we found Gypsy and are so thankful for all of your help with the adoption process.
“She’s been on her first ever holiday! I don’t know if she’d ever been on holiday before but she took everything in her stride, including lots of different stiles to clamber over!
“She has enriched our lives and we’ve bonded very closely during lockdown. We can’t imagine life without her now.”
We want to be there for all the dogs like Gypsy that need our help for many more years to come.You can simply text JERRY to 70201 to donate £1 towards our vital work, or perhaps consider sponsoring a kennel at your local centre for just £1 per week. Thank you.
Tips on how to keep your dog cool during the hot weather
Enjoying the hot weather?
With the sunny days returning, we just wanted to remind people that it can take just a few seconds to burn your dog’s sensitive pads on hot pavements.
As tempting as it may be to take your dogs out to enjoy the sunshine, please try to walk them early morning or late evenings to avoid the really hot periods of the day. Stick to shady areas and the grass where possible. Also make sure you carry plenty of water with you and stop for short breaks with your dog.
If it’s too hot to go for a walk why not have fun in the garden instead?
Whilst spending time with your dog in the garden there are many ways you can keep them dog cool. Why not try a paddling pool? Dogs love sploshing and splashing – you can pop some treats or floating toys in there for them to play with and entice them in.
It is important you let them go in on their own accord so they don’t become scared though.
You can also freeze kongs or if your dog isn’t interested in any of the above then you can soak an old towel and place it on the floor so they can lay on a cold area if they become too warm.
This is a quick and easy way to create a cool space for your dog.
We hope you enjoy the summer, and please keep yourself and your dog safe!
