Hungarian Puli Lydia came into Battersea at 9 months old when her owners were no longer able to keep her.
Forest arrived at Battersea feeling pretty poorly - he was quickly diagnosed with Giardia, an intestinal parasite that causes severe weight loss.
When Dash, an 8-year-old Yorkie came into Battersea, he had a noticeably different bark to most other dogs – it was very raspy and breathy.
With her lovely black locks, keeping cool is an issue in the summer heat. To help keep her temperature down Paul made Lydia doggy ice-lollies, which he almost had a lick of himself…! Her new owners, the Howell family from Camberley, fell in love at first sight. Now in her new home, Lydia recently accompanied the Howells on a camping trip where they took in a visit to the seaside.
Highly contagious amongst dogs, Forest was placed in quarantine until he was clear of infection. The medication he was given worked and after feeling a lot better, he was ready for a new home! It didn’t take long… he was quickly snapped up by Lydia and Kirk from Surrey.
When Dash, an 8-year-old Yorkie came into Battersea, he had a noticeably different bark to most other dogs – it was very raspy and breathy. A look at his previous medical records suggested he had an issue with his Trachea, which isn’t entirely uncommon in toy breeds, but the clinic team needed to conduct a chest X-ray to understand how bad the problem was. Thankfully there was no real damage and Dash was cleared for re-homing – which was music to the ears of Hillary from Surrey!
