Can you give Dory a home? The opening of the new Jerry Green Pawprint Pavilion and warm weather tips

Are you trying to find Dory?

You need not look any further! We’ve found Dory for you! Our Dory is a loveable lurcher girl who had an accident prior to coming into our centre and unfortunately broke her front leg. Her leg is healing very well and she is now ready to find her forever home.

Dory can be a little shy when first meeting new people but quickly becomes your best friend, she loves other dogs and just wants to play. Currently, she would be better in a pet-free home while still recovering but would still like to stay social with dogs.

If Dory is the one for you please phone the South Lincs team on 01205 260546 or email slincs@jerrygreendogs.org.uk to arrange to come and meet her!

Training tip - warm weather advice

I’m sure you have been enjoying the Easter sunshine this weekend, so we thought we’d take this week to share some tips on keeping your dog cool now the weather is warming up.

First of all, check how hot the floor is before you take your dog out - they have very sensitive paws and if it’s too hot for the back of your hand, avoid it if possible - try and stick to grass and shady areas.

You can also get your paddling pools out for your dog to play in or lay a wet towel on the floor for your dog to cool down on.

Another idea is make doggy ice lollies! This can be done simply with any dog safe ingredients, like dog meat/fruit/veg/peanut butter, add some of your dog's favourite things to water in an ice cube tray or little pots, then freeze overnight ready to give your dog as a cool treat during the hot days.

You can also do this with filled Kong, so your dog takes longer to get through there enrichment.

These are some tips to use while the weather is warmer and dogs should be monitored when having their lollies.
