In a Cyprus rescue there is a young Briard type dog needing help he has been confined to a cage with little food. Fortunately the lovely Sheila Cann with the help of Clare in Cyprus has taken it upon herself to help bring this boy to England for re homing. He has been moved to a kennels and a passport and flight arranged by Clare who lives in Cyprus. Obviously all this costs and Sheila has been funding this herself with the help of a few generous donation but there is still a short fall to the total cost hence I am posting on here to see if anyone would be interested in contributing. There are homes ready for him and training and assessment in place it is purely a matter of cost.
Thank you
Brenda

The latest update on Shaggy dog his flight is booked for the 19th March so not long and he'll be here in the UK. I'm still awaiting more pictures of him and will get them posted when they come. He will think he's in heaven after the life he has lead so far.
Both Sheila and I will be at Crufts so if anyone would still like to donate and you're going to Crufts please seek us out.
Thanks again to all those of you who have donated. Very Happy

Can you donate without going to Crufts? I won't be there, but I'm keen to give something if that is still possible.
