Notts and Yorkshire Boxer Rescue has always believed that when rescue’s work together they can save more lives and this was particularly true in this case.
Some weeks ago we had a phone call from Lisa at Welsh Poundies asking if we could take a little Boxer girl they had named Carrie who was in a terrible state and was in a pound in Wales. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Welsh Poundies Rescue they are an amazing lot who try to find rescue places or homes for dogs on their last days in the Welsh pounds. It literially is a life and death situation that these dogs are plucked from when the Welsh Poundies step in and save them.
Ofcourse we agreed to take Carrie, dogs like her are what rescue is all about. Lisa drove her part of the way and was met by Karen who after seeing what a terrible state she was in took her home to foster her. Carrie could hardly walk, sores around her back end, thin, ears in a terrible state…….she had given up on life after being used as a breeding machine then being dumped.
She wasn’t house trained, she didn’t understand what play was and she was one very frightened little girl but gradually with lots of love and care from Karen and husband Karl, Carrie’s health started to improve and she learned how good life could be.
Then we got a phone call from Sue from Hull Boxer Rescue. A gentleman she knew had just lost his dear little girl Boxer and she asked if we possibly had any dogs who could mend his broken heart………Carrie fitted the bill perfectly but Sue had just had an operation so transporting Carrie was going to be a problem. In steps the wonderful Daphney Dunks from Grimsby Boxer Rescue (now retired) and together with Sue they drove to meet us at Doncaster and take Carrie on to her new life.

Carrie is doing well and settling into her new home thanks to some very special people and four rescues working together to deliver her from a life of hell to a life of heaven.
Well we had a great May with 6 dogs going to their new furever homes including King who has been with us since January and the lovely Miss Rio who came to us so frightened she cowered and weed herself whenever you approached her. It makes everything worthwhile when dogs like these go off to their new lives, happy and loved.
Handed into us in May was also Murphy, a lovely boy of 9 years old. Thankfully we have a foster home for him, God knows at his age I really didn’t want him to spend much time in kennels. My greatest wish is that someone will see beyond his slightly grey chops to see the wonderful boy he is and offer him a loving home inwhich to see out his days.
Lovely Mr Murphy
Preparation for our first ever family fun day / dog show continue with many stalls now confirmed as well as a dance group, childrens funfair and even a possible celeb appearance (fingers crossed). Its been hard work to put together but will be so worthwhile not only because it will raise much needed funds for rescue but because it gives us the chance to catch up with all the lovely adoptees and their gorgeous babes.
As many of you will know the committee are also busy preparing to apply for charity status. Its a very exciting step forward for our rescue and is something that we have been working towards for some time now. As well as financial benefits and giving us greater recognition it will mean we have one of only a handful of Boxer Rescue’s in the UK that are actually registered as charities.
So now we’re looking forward to the month of June and wondering just what this will bring……….
Hi my name is Georgie
I’m a lovely little brindle girl aged 4. I’ve got an overshot jaw which makes my teeth stick out but most people think that just makes me look even cuter. I love to be around people, in fact I don’t really like being left on my own because my previous family never left me but I’m sure if the right family came along and they had the time to teach me I could learn how to stay on my own for a little while. I’m very happy and playful and I’ve lived with 4 very young children which I was very good with. I’m spayed, microchipped, flea treated, wormed, fully vaccinated and I’ve been checked over by a Vet who said I was in tip top condition. I’m not keen on other dogs until I get to know them, its not really my fault, its just that I’ve never really been around them and I get all worked up and end up doing all the wrong things and getting myself into trouble. That’s not the reason I was handed into rescue though, it was because my previous owner because too poorly and couldn’t look after me anymore. This made me very sad but I’m sure the right furever family will come along soon and I’ll have someone special to love and make a fuss of me once again. I’ll be keeping my paws crossed and waiting for your phone call.
Loads a licks
Buster is going home tomorrow! He came into rescue with the worst ears we have ever seen. Moved from home to home he was purchased on Gumtree by his last owner who took him home and discovered he had a growth in one ear and “black stuff” coming out. Because his owner couldn’t afford a vet he left him to suffer and his ear condition was never treated………..until he was handed into NAYBR. Both his ears were full of canker, what pain this boy must have been in! Busters ears were cleaned, treated with antibiotics and the benign growth removed and gradually Busters ears have improved.
So if YOU buy a dog please consider how you will pay your vet bills. A dog is a huge financial committment and you should plan accordingly. The way Buster’s owners allowed him to suffer was disgusting, if you can’t afford to be a responsible owner……DONT GET A DOG!
Little Ellie is 4 years old and deaf. She had visitors today and ofcourse they loved her! She is such a sweet little thing who could resist! Ellie will be going home later this week so keep a look out for her welcome home pictures and the latest news on how Ellie’s doing.
