DECEMBER 2014 - IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR OUR DIRECT DEBIT SUPPORTERS

Recently, the Derbyshire building society we hold our charitable trust account with has been bought out and incorporated into the Woolwich.
Because of this, we need to get in touch with our direct debit givers within the next 12 months.
Unfortunately, we often don't have the contact details for our regular givers as we often get phone calls about donating
and obviously, not everybody who enquires and gets our details goes on to set up a direct debit with their bank.
If you are one of our regular donators, please get in touch with Paul and as always we are very grateful for your generosity.

Or if you would like to begin to donate on a monthly basis, please contact Paul Saxton for our new details.
Tel: 01773 715349 or E-Mail admin@sharpeirescue.org.uk
Please remember, unlike the charity adverts you see on TV or the chuggers and doorsteppers employed by third party companies,
100% of any money you give goes directly to the dogs our charitable trust has been set up to help.

MAY 2013 - SNUGGLE AND THE MOW COP KILLER MILE!

This handsome boy is Snuggle and he's a shar-pei with a mission.
Every year, Snuggle and his owner Karl Weller run the Mow Cop Killer Mile for a
good cause and this year, we are honoured that they have chosen us!

So far, they have raised £150 in sponsorship money for the event that took place on
the 9th of May. We hope to soon have some photos of our intrepid duo at the event.
As we didn't manage to let everybody know before the event that they could sponsor
Snuggle, he's happy to accept a "good boy" donation for completing his arduous,
if fun, run up Mow Cop.

If you'd like to add to Snuggle's fundraising total, please feel free to donate via
Paypal up until the 3st of May. Please state it's for Snuggle.

Alternatively, please make cheques/postal orders payable to:

MARCH 2013 - URGENT FOSTER HOME NEEDED

Leo and Mia immediately need a foster home for 4-6 weeks. Their owner has
developed a disabling health condition and lost her job and house due to it.
She now is forced to move to a place that does not allow dogs while a house
where they are allowed to keep them is converted to meet her needs. She and her
3 young children desperately want to keep Leo and Mia as they are very much
loved and wanted, but due to unforseen events they need help to keep their
family together.

Both dogs are house trained and up to date with vaccinatiants, worming and flea medication. Mia and Leo need to stay together.

Leo is a fawn 14 month old neutered male. He's rather shy and nervous around
strangers, but he's not in the least bit aggressive. He is excellent around children
and other dogs, though he doesn't like cats.

Mia is a blue 13 month old female. She's still very bouncy and puppy like. She
is also excellent with children and other dogs. Mia loves people, but is also not
good with cats.

If you feel that you could help out and have this lovely pair of young dogs
as house guests for a few weeks, please contact Paul Saxton

If you would like to donate on a monthly basis, please contact Paul Saxton for more details.

SEPTEMBER 2012 - CHARLIE

Charlie is a 5 year old red brushcoat male. He's been with his current
owner for 18 months and they had no idea of his life before that. It then
became apparent he does not like other dogs at all. The problem is. his
owner already had 4 Chinese Crested and they have done their best to 
try and socialise Charlie, then seperate them while still giving all the dogs
the same quality time. Sadly, they have had to come to the conclusion
that despite loving him, the best thing for Charlie would be a home with
a family/owner he can have all to himself.

Charlie is a loyal, loving dog who just likes people much more than he does his
own species. We're not sure how he is with children as he's never really mixed with them, so an adult household would be needed.

If you feel that you could give Charlie a forever home, please
contact Paul Saxton
Tel: 01773 715349 or E-Mail admin@sharpeirescue.org.uk

CJARLIE

AUGUST 2012 - ERNIE

Ernie is a 7 month old black horsecoat male. He needs a new
home with previous shar-pei experience as he has become
too much for his current family now he is coming up for adolescence.

Ernie needs a home with no children and owners who have the
experience to give him the socialisation and training he needs
so he can grow into a well balanced adult shar-pei.

If you feel that you could give Ernie the new start in life he needs.
contact Paul Saxton
Tel: 01773 715349 or E-Mail admin@sharpeirescue.org.uk

JUNE 2012 - HONEY


UPDATE SEPT 2012: Honey is now in a lovely new home with another shar-pei. Photo coming soon!

Honey is currently in kennels and is urgently looking for an
experienced home to foster or adopt her. She is easy to handle
when out of her kennel, but tends to guard her territory when in
the kennel. This behaviour is to be expected as everything is strange
and new to her so she's bound to be feeling bewildered and insecure.
She is clean in her kennel so is probably house trained.

Honey is currently on medication for her skin condition
and wearing a buster collar to stop her biting at her irritated skin.
Both of the above will likey improve if she is in a home environment.
Shar-Pei generally do not do well in kennels, especially if they are
used to being a house pet and poor Honey must be under quite
a bit of stress. A stable and calm home environment will help her
physical and psychological health greatly.

MARCH 2012 - SKYE

UPDATE: Skye has now found a wonderful new home.
Skye is a beautiful blue female horsecoat who is about 2 years old. 12 months ago she was found collapsed at the side of a
busy road in a terrible state. She was 7.5 kilos underweight, had demodectic mange, bilateral cherry eye as well as entropion
and eye/ear infections. Thankfully she was found at the roadside by a guardian angel who has nursed her back to health.

NOVEMBER 2011 - URGENT HOME NEEDED!

UPDATE: Captain is now in a loving and permanent home, has healed well and his new owner
has sent us some updated photos which we will post soon.

Poor Captain was handed in to a vets as a stray.He is thought to be a young adult.
As you can see from the above photos, he has very deep neck lacerations and swelling to his throat area because of it.
The vet suspects this is because he's been tied on a rope that has cut into his neck as it was too tight.
He also has rather bad ear and eye infections.Thankfully, he's already on the mend and has improved in the few days
of treatment he's received in the vet's care.Fortunately it is expected to heal well despite it's gruesome appearance.
Sadly, even with local publicity, the person responsible for his cruel treatment and has not been found.

Please note, we have moved and our new address is:
15 Meadow Close, Eastwood, Nottingham, NG16 3DQ
New landline number is 01773 715349

MARCH 2011 - UPDATE ON CHANG

Chang, as you can see, is looking marvellous! He has filled
out wonderfully with lots of love and good food. His coat is
looking fabulous and thankfully the suspicious looking bare
spots proved to be nothing to worry about. They grew in
quickly once he was actually getting fed again.

We would like to thank all the kind people who generously
donated towards his medical treatment while he was in our care.
Thanks for coming through for Chang!

We are delighted to announce that Chang has found a
wonderful home with one of our previous adopters and he
now lives with Maggie, who is one of Paul's previous rescues
from a few years ago.

A big thank you to his new family for opening their hearts to
another shar-pei in need. Chang is quite obviously thriving
and his life has done a complete 180 degree turn in a month!

FEBRUARY 2011

Update on the dog below: Chang, as he is now called, has been in our care for over a week. He has seen the vet and had his blood tests which have thankfully come back normal. He is now putting weight on nicely though he is a very small male, probably due to how he's been starved during his early life as he appears to be a young dog. He is good with our resident dogs and is very affectionate with people. One of his favourite shows of affection is to hold your hand in his mouth and lick you at the same time. He is looking for a very special home where he will be showered with love and fed well for the rest of his life.

JANUARY 2011

This poor little mite was found abandoned in an extremely
emaciated state. You can see from the photo how his backbone
and hips are sticking through. He also has a couple of strange
lesions on his head that will need investigating.

The dog warden has informed us that he will be handed over
to us after the statutory 7 days, which will be 31st January 2011.
His breeder has been found but do not want the dog back.
Considering the state he's in, there is little chance of any
owner stepping forward with an excuse for his physical condition
in the next three days.

So it will be up to us to pay the emotional and financial cost
of nursing him back to health. Any donations to help with his care will be gratefully received.

If you can help, please use the button below or contact
Paul Saxton on 0115 9191883 or E-Mail

We are also honoured that two of our longstanding shar-pei friendly vets who have helped us greatly over the last several years have also agreed to become Patrons. Big thanks to Brandon Spolander at Barrier Animal Care Clinic and Chris Mann at Chapel House Vets for your support.

WARNING ABOUT THE SUGAR SUBSTITUTE XYLITOL

We recently nearly lost one of our shar-pei due to ingesting something that contained Xylitol. It is a popular sweetener everything from mints and chewing gum to toothpaste. We don't know how she came into contact with Xylitol, but luckily she was rushed to the emergency vet and the vet realized what it was quickly, saving her life. So far her treatment has cost 1000. Xylitol is highly toxic to dogs and a small amount can cause liver failure and death within 24 hours if not treated. Please be careful in both storing or discarding anything with this product as an ingredient.
