Although Sam’s progress has been good aided by Catherine Marshall, physiotherapist and Helen Gosling at Butterwick Hydrotherapy there was still a problem as his leg had rotated and he was walking on the side of his foot.

After consultation he was referred to an orthopaedic specialist and an operation was carried out on Wednesday 25th January. He now has to have 6 weeks cage rest (he doesn’t agree and lets everyone know it, his lung power is phenomenal). He has a post operative check up on Monday.

Rosie arrived at Saltburn Animal Rescue Association at the end of November 2015 as a stray at only five years old. At first glance, Rosie was absolutely skeletal and her coat was in poor condition. Once we had had a look at her, it was obvious that she was extremely dehydrated and her gums were white! We rushed her to the vets where she immediately drank five bowls of water and was placed on a drip.  She was in such poor condition that she had become diabetic! She has been as good as gold the entire time. The vets are still confident she will go in to remission from her diabetes. Rosie has insulin injections after her meals which are 12hrs apart.

She will actually finish her dinner and come over for her injection! In the last 13 months, I have got to know Rosie so well and to see how far she has come is amazing. Even more amazing is how she has taken it all in her stride. Rosie enjoys her walks with the other dogs and playing with squeaky toys but her favourite thing, I think, is having her tummy tickled. She will lie down on the grass for a tickle and I am sure she would lay there for hours if she could. There isn’t a single day where Rosie doesn’t make me smile. She is a truly spectacular dog and really deserves an amazing home of her own. OUT ON TRIAL.

Sasha is a 18mth old staffie cross who came in to our care after her owner could no longer care for her. She is a very loving and affectionate little girl who enjoys lots of exercise as well as a good fuss and a her tummy tickled. She is looking for a home as an only dog with someone who will give her plenty of exercise and training.

Winston is a gentle giant who came in to us after his owners health meant he could no longer care for him.

Jet is a lovely 8 year old lab cross who came into us a year ago after she was found as a stray. This makes her currently our longest resident for some unknown reason. She is a lovely dog who enjoys playing fetch and long walks and really enjoys playing in water. She is a very affectionate girl who is looking for a home with experienced dog owners where she can be an only dog she is a strong therefore we think could possibly with older children aged 10 +.

Woody is a 6 year old staffie who came into S.A.R.A after his owner sadly became too ill to look after him anymore. Woody is completely deaf so would need a home that understands his needs.This little man is a great dog that enjoys his walks and lots of attention. Woody could potentially live in a home with older children from 10 .

Scooby is a 13 year old male border terrier cross who came into S.A.RA after his owner sadly passed away. He is a lovely dog that would make someone a lovely companion he enjoys long walks as well as lots of love and affection. Since Scooby came into the center it had become clear that he is ether deaf or very hard of hearing because of this reason he is looking for a long term foster home with experienced owners with no young children.
