All The Latest News From All Dogs Matter
Our friends at All Dogs Matter have been working hard in recent weeks to rehome dogs including twelve saved from a South Korean meat farm. Here, they share a heart warming, success story and we are looking for a home for the lovely Winston....
Cherie arrived with twelve other dogs from South Korea. They were rescued by Humane Society International from a dog-meat farm that they closed down. Cherie was one of the most shell-shocked dogs and went straight out on foster and, unfortunately, she has been one of the last to find her perfect forever home.
Although, she was able to go straight out on foster, she was just as terrified as she had been in kennels. Pressing her face into the wall and trying to make herself as small as possible, it took weeks before she was investigating her new home and garden.
Having other dogs around her helped a lot and they all tried to show her what it was to be a normal dog and that humans here are not that scary! She is still very nervous of loud noises and movement and it took a lot of tasty treats to build her confidence with her foster carers, but she got braver every day.
After weeks and weeks of waiting, we were contacted by a lovely lady who owned a male Shiba Inu. She had read Cherie's story, fallen in love with her and couldn't wait to meet her! Cherie has been in her new home for a few days now and we hear everything is well! She's exploring her new surroundings and seems to enjoy having her new fur-brother around!
It’s not just dogs from South Korea though that need new homes....
Winston is a Mastiff cross who has come to us after he was found abandoned. He’s approximately 6-7 years old.
Winston is a sweet boy, who has been friendly with the staff at kennels. Sadly, Winston has come to us with some rotten teeth and a benign growth in his mouth. He was seen at the vets and underwent an operation to make him feel better. We would love to find this sweet boy a foster home while he recovers ahead of finding his forever owners. Winston has been ok with dogs when out, but would prefer to be the only dog in his new home. Further details are here

Our next event is on Sunday 15th April – the Priory Park Dog Show in Haringey together with our friends at the Dogs Trust. We’ll be publishing more information about this soon on our website.
